Aspen’s representative young lady at the carnival had the distinction of being almost a perfect double of the queen, for whom she was frequently mistaken. It is an awfully short time between the day a boy worries because he didn’t eat more at the party the night before, and as an old man ho worries because be ate too much. Morgan county, where they have here tofore guarded prisoners out on the cacti or paid neighboring counties to care t»r its wards, is going to build a $3500 jail at Fsrt Morgan. The Chicago Recoi'd's postal savings bank bill should become a law as quickly as the next session of Congress can enact it. It is a measure that would be of in calclable benefit to the masses. This week the Luetgert trial will be completed in Chicago, and the bones and bits of gorrillos and humans that have played such a prominent part in the case may now be dumped into the sewer. The politicians have shown good sense in making the campaign very short this year. A long campaign demoralizes bus iness, causes the candidates prolonged expense, and brings no better results. There is a good deal said about timid country girls, but clerks around town say that they are all afraid of country girls; that they look fierce enough in buying to slap on the least provocation, j/ Crystal is probably the only camp in the state with the distinction of having an operating mine conducted by a lady, who superintends the work iu person, and sorts ore and does other labor which she is strong enough to perform. Contracting on tunnels has undergone the same lowering values that have ef fected other classes of work the past few years. Not long ago no one thought of driving a tunnel for less than twenty dol lars a foot, put now the average of pricea is hardly half that rate now. The Bible Intistute Colportage Asso ciation, D. L. Moody. President, is in need of more colporters. Earnest young people desiring to give the whole or por tion of their time to Christian work, with remuneration, should address, A. P. Fitt, Box X, 250 La Salle Ave., Chicago, for particulars. The Leadvilie Free Lance is by all odds the spiciest paper in Colorado. We Have not the pleasure of a personal ac quaintance with Messrs Ide and Newman hut should be delighted to know the men *hose offspring sparkles in every line its editorial and local. We prdict *hat from the Leadville offiice will eman ate', one of the famous editorial and humofous writers of the country. 8uch ability as the Free Lance displays cannot tang remain unrewarded by recognition the world of letters and better com pensation than the Leadville held offers. AMONG THE MINES. PlMt Picked Up ArMMI U»c Cryital District an* Eclum Fran the flaay Miaaa. Jack Clayton and A1 Mangold are doing assessment** on claims near the Lead King, which will keep them busy for a few weeks. * In the Finley strike on Meadow Moun tain the extent of the ore body is not yet known. Assays taken show twentynine ounces silver and 15 per cent copper. The Bear Mountain Tunnel has been extended forty feet since work was begun about two weeks ago. Everything has been going favorably and at the present rate of progress the tunnel will be a long way into the mouNtain before winter sets in with severe weather. In the Crystal Mountain Mine the quartz formation in which the tunnel is being driven is the hardest formation ever struck in any of the mines of the camp, with tho possible exception of the Belle of Titusville, and as a consequence work is progressing slowly. Wm. Pace is running the engine again, Charley Melton blacksmithing, George Melton and George Garrett on the machine. S. H. Caldwell has been compelled to close down work on the Van Deusen on Bear Mountain. He came down yester day morning, wading from his cabin door into nine inches of snow. The formation of the ground is changing and is very hard, but the values carried are unknown as yet. A depth of fortythree feet has been reachrd. Mr. Caldwell wi 1 leave camp today or tomorrow for his home at Colorado Borings. OUR SALTED PLACER. Washed From the Rich Deposits on Tho Lance Exchanxe Table. Gen. Gomez, the commander of the Cuban forces declares that “we will never accent any conce*- 'on from Spa short of our absolute freedom,” and he adds “If the qnestion of home rule for Cuba be discussed between Washington and Madrid, then, in my opinion, the best service the United States could render would be tolet us alone to settle this and other questions on the battle field.” The whole world outside of Spain will aym pathize with the Cuban General’s words. -Salt Lake Tribune. Some men who knew you not before Are now your friends indeed; They sow October smiles galore To grow November seed. The high Priest of the inner court of the sanctum aanctorum of this knowledge dispensatory robed himself in his out door apparel one day ago and departed for tho state’s institution of learning at Boulder, thero to confer with the five other scribes concerning the welfare of those who learn of the wise men, and lawyers and doctors. He will be absent until he returns —probably in two days. —Silver Cliff Rvstler. V A. T. Ferris came in yesterday from the Cry stal district, bringing with him a beautiful specimen of copper ore that would indicate a pay mine where it was found. Mr. Ferris for some time past has had his eye on a certain locality on West Maroon, a few miles above the lakes, and when he left Crystal for As pen this trip he determined to visit it for the purpose of doing a little prospecting. Wednesday afternoon, finding favorable indications he commenced digging and by night had uncovered an eight foot vein of mineral. It showed considerable copper and a number of samples were secured and brought to the city for as says. The average of these gave returns of 19 per cent copper, 6 ounces silver and some iron. One beautiful specimen brought down and shown on the stteet yesterday would run fully 25 per cent copper. The claim will bwfurther devel oped in the near future. —Aspen Sun. The campaign in Greater New York ia waxing warm. Tammany, with a bale of bank bills and a tigerish smile, has headed its ticket with a McKinley Demo crat for mayor. Of course free coinage ia a dead issue —the eastern press says so—but it does seem the goldite’ papers are devoting a lot of space 1 to ante mortem explanations of the condition of the* deceased. The territory Indians have a new ass’ for white men. A buck was arrested down there the other day for killing a white man. and gave as his reason for the crime that he wanted the flesh for fish bait Lo had a portionofhisvictims leg in his bait can when arrested. Still there are people who think the Indian can't'be* civilized. CRYSTAL, GUNNISON COUNTY. COLORADO* OCTOBER 15, 1897. The hectic flush Like golden plush Is on the leaves of autumn; The drooping trees In each sad breeze Decry the frosts that caught them. On mountains high That kiss the sky. Lies winter’s garment of snow; Jack Frost is king O’er everything On mountain top* and vales below. The chipmunk hides And frost derides; We hear the blue bird’s final call. But man, the guome, Is quite at home, Knowing, but heeding not. ’tis fall. —Frank I. White. Carbondale Happenings. Mr. B. Pierce, of Aspen, spent Sunday in Carbondale. Little Clayaon Freeye while at play the other day fell and broke his arm. Mrs, McCarthy has taken charge of the secsion house, Mrs. Welsh having moved to Glenwood. Three new names have been enrolled at school this week: Miss Kuth Hudson, Lama Hedges and Josie McCarthy. On Monday while Mr. E. D. Tandy, was breaking a colt he was pitched from the cart causing the dislocation of his arm. Maeeiro -At Glenwood Springs Sun day, October 3rd, 1897, Mr. Hardy Groves and Misa Girtrude Gay, both of Caiuoa dale. Miss Ruth Hudson of Fruita, a sis e : of Mrs. E. A. Phillips will spend the whi ter here for the purpose of school. Miss Grace Freeman who has been ab sent a week attending the carnival It again back at school performing her duties a* assistant teacher. Mrs. Ella Crone of Crystal spent the latter part of lasc week with friends in Carbondale. She took her departure for Boulder Saturday morning. Mr. and Mrs. St John left for St. Joe, Mo, on Monday mornings train, being called there suddenly on account of the illness of Mrs. St. John’s father. Miss Jessie Winters ia borne again having finished a very successful term of School at Spring Gulch. In company with her uncle, L. Grubb, Miss Winters will start for Minnesota the last of this month, where she will attend school. Which Shall It Be?

Dofflemyre. No more remarkable achievement ia recorded to the credit of an American newspaper’s enterprise than the New York JournaTH expedition sent to Ha vana to liberate Evangeline Cisneros,, “the daughter of the revolution,” from e Spanish prisoo,. which they did, and she ia now on American soil. Yesterday the camp was'visited by the first installment of candidates, in the persons af Sheriff Wiley, who is willing to serve another term and is asking, for the needed votes, and A. W. Grant can didate- for clerk and recorder, who iwaftso hustling for results. Personally they are both pleaaant gentlemen of good address but in certifying to campaign expenses will have to account for aoane cheap cigars. J Crystal society must not be esmpared with Crystal weather at any season, but here are a few suggestions for club or ganizations to keep things warm thin winter: Cayenne Snowshoe Club. Sweater Sewing Circle. Warm Thing Card Club. Earnest Eating Endeavor, Tie Autumn. Atchison Globe Sights. There is a|ie going around about an old-fashions* child that was not noisy, The fool Idler should hang around a photographers studio more than he does. It is a rarefean who commends: men like to tell hqr it should have been done If a busy a«l bothered man laughs at a joke, it is agupreme teat that it ia a good one. One thing h favor of the 12-year-old boy: he is emier to suppress than his spoiled sister. We sometimes think that people do not die of old age; they worry thfem selves to death. There are such poor cooks at some houses we should hate ta carry a lunch from them. The morning after th» carnival, a float back of a store, in an alley, looks like a drunken man. You ; are an exceptional person if you don’t give to new friends, and try to sell to old friends. If a woman sincerely loves a man it never worries her conscience to steal tobacco for him. A little man always has one weapon he can use against a big man; he can ‘Jtalk” about him. Every one agrees, in speaking of some one else, that it beats all how some peo ple spend money. An old man’s good time lasts longer than a young one’s because it takea him longer to get over it. A man always takea a toothpick when be goes into a restaurant, whether he eats anything or not. The proudest thing in the world is a | yon .ig married woman who baa a horse ! r.ad buggy, and a baby. j A boy doesn't begin to have a good 1 time until he haa succeeded iu getting lost from his mother. You can’t do anything with somtf men nnless you scare them: they have no re gard for patriotism or duty. A woman never realizes how much of the boomerang there ia about « husband until she starts to discipline hfm. When a man marries a woman, he can-depend upon catching kef sister to live with him, within six mouths. Fishermen are not the only liars. Af ter a man has been in a shipwreck, he claims to have been in three or four. No woman is a scciety belle if she has reached twenty without having her health ruined by late nights and candy. A girl may cry occasionally when a fish gets away, but she doesn’t know real sorrow until she is so old she is out of bait. There is such a thing ae an aggravated wrong: have an enemy so stupid that he doesn’t kndw it when you get even with him. A man with a bicycle haa the same feeling toward a professional bicycle thief that a mother has toward kidnap pers. The longer we remain in business, the greater admiration we have for the peo ple who can say a great deal in a few words. It’s bad enough for a man when he has a stiff bosom shirt on and wants to scratch, but imagine a woman with* a corset on. The season is rapidly closing when the people try to get near to nature’s heart by sitting out on the grass with very little on. A man is as touchy about anything that might hurt his busioses as a wom an ia about an injury to tier child, or her social standing. When you find a man who is very lib eral minded about a certain thing, you will find it is because he ia not person ally interested. A woman feels that ahe knows what itr is to have a great disgrace to live down if she bakes a cake for a church social and it fails to rise. The kind of assistance that is given in trouble is not always satisfactory: it is easier to prove friendship for a man by laughing at his jokes. This is the season when the mornings af*r cold enough to make people look with distaste at cantaloupe, and long for * ball of fried Luetgert. We have always had an idea that the prophet who commanded people to pray without ceasing, must have been a ter ribly lazy, shiftless man. When a woman's husband is mean to her, she has a good deal to say about the ungratefulness of the women who are net attentive to good husbands. Make No Mistake! Here’s Your Chance..., BARGAIN SALE.
