Blan co, who is to save Cuba to Spain, or Carl Decker, who saved Miss Cisneros to Cuba? There are so many mixed tickets and internal fights in the different parties that the count will be very slow, and returns late this year. Mrs. Lease and Jerry Simpson are tnnking speeches in New York “to help” Henry George. The people of Greater New York have our deepest sympathy. The bountiful beautiful snow coming at this time, may serve to keep the effu aive candidate’s ardor below the boiling point, even m the sulphuric heat of an off-year campaign. John E. Brothers is making “assurance doubly sure” by a vigorous canvass over the county, and everything indicates that he will receive a handsome majority at the polls next Tuesday. We should like to know whether Smith Whipp fully appreciates his enviable position: he is the only candidate in the county who is not the target for abuse. Mr. Whipp is the candidate of every par ty in the county. A kick is registered by a Kansas paper because the government has named one of its best battleships “Alabama,” for a state that seceded from the union, in stead of “Kansas,” for a state which furnished more soldiers to defend the Hag, in proportion to population, than any other. The editor should remember Kansas went Populist several time;?, and Alabama only went out of the union once. Wait a little longer reader, till, the enow is six feet deep; till only the tallest trees, still stand high to vigils keep. Then we’ll point in ecstacy our long finger of pride, to our horror of the winter, a rumbling, tumbling, wicked slide. We hope no mortal will be caught in Boreas cold embrace, but man’s wit counts for nought, where a slide is in the race. So may each man who these trails plod have a guardian angel’s guide, that no soul shall be called to God, from the rushing, crushing, cruel slide. From the daily Lance, Oct. 29, 1901:- The enemies of the administration are much elated over the result of the city : •lection in Indianapolis, where they have succeeded in reducing the Bryan party s majority to about eight thousand. Our •astern friends should remember that four years ago, when the Hoosier capital gave the silver ticket a majority the first time it was a sweeping change from the previous election, when ths • Republican •lectors had a handsome majority, and that in each succeeding election since the Bryan ticket has won by increased majorities. The falling off of a few thousand still leaves ample causo for a blush of shame to tinge the cheeks of the Clevelandites who called the gold- Democratic convention in Indianapolis in ’96, and thus assisted in delaying free coinage four years longer than it should have been. OUR SALTED PLACER. Washed From the Rich Deposits ss Ths Laacs Exchears TsMs. In Denver. They talk no more of pardise In Denver, Think they have something just as nice In Denver. The people are contented and Feel just as good and just as grand As any people m the land, In Denver. The men are modelled after gods In Denver, Could give Apollo great big odds In Denver. Each woman is a sunny ray, The babies fair as buds of May, And as for pretty girls—Well, say! In Denver. The doctors cure but never kill In Denver, The lawyers never fight a will In Denver. The editors are Christian men Who never wield abusive pen The tiger has no gilded den In Denver. The preachers know no worldly tricks In Denver' They never touch on politics In Denver. The city cops are all polite, They walk their beats the entire night And in their stylo they’re out of sight In Denver. The city fathers all are saints In Denver. Their characters are free from taints In Denver. Before they pass a law they kneel And send aloft a brief appeal To heaven to guide them in the deal In Denver. The polls are hanlded on the square In Denver, No heelers over loiter there In Denver. If candidates are brought to view Whose morals are not tried and true, They get the hatchet p. d. q. In Denver. When Gabriel signals to the fold In Denver, If then the story should be told In Denver That heaven was in a crowded way I think it’s not too much to say that we would be content to stay In Denver. — Evening Post. It will soon cost SI,OOO a year license to retail cigarettes in Denver. With the curfew law, sling shot ordinance and the cigarette high-license law all in force, life for the Denver urchin will become a burden. —Hugo Ledger. We wonder how the Commons will like what the British Ministry have done in response to the request of the United States and France, to keep the pledge of last year. Three times in the last five years that body has, by unanimous votes declared the pressing, absolute need of an arrangement by which an established parity between gold and silver can be made secure. What will it have to say now. — Salt Lake Tribune. *** The roads connecting Denver with Grand Junction have done right in re ducing the freight on apples from the Western slope to this city. It seems if this had not been done apples would have been bronght from Missouri to com pete with those from the Western slope. The railroads should in all cases, as in this instance, make whatever rates may be needed to-place a product upon the market, —Denver Republican. *** A good talker is born, not made. By reading good books, by keeping one’s self well informed as to the interesting events of the day, one may become a good conversationalist. Still, the most fascinating talkers are by no means those who know the most, but, instead, those who have the greatest amount of tact, are most sympathetic, versatile, ;*nd, most important of all, have that ■ wonderful something that, lacking a better name, we call magnetism. — Nov ember Ladies Home Journal. *** The network of trolleys with which New England is now covered makes it possible to ride 124 miles on trolley roads. This is probably the longest trolley line in the world. From the resi dence of Mr. Henry H. Rodgers, vice president of the Standard Oil Company, at Fort Phoenix, in Fairhaven, to Nashua New Hampshire, the route is as follows: New Bedford, Fall River, Taunton, Bridgewater, Brockton, Braintree, Quin cy Boston, Malden, Melrose, Wakefield, Reading, Wilmington. Bilerica, Lowell and Dracus, to Nashua.-The Scientific American , CRYSTAL, GUNNISON COUNTY. COLORADO, OCTOBER ag, 1897. AMONG THE MINES. Fleet Picked Up Arwtad the Crystal District UT Echo** Prom the- rUay Mine*. The Lead King tunnel is being driven rapidly. Three shifts of men are work ing now, and progress of several feet a day being made. The Crystal Mountain Mine has driven the tunnel thirtysix feet in the hard quartz formation, and there is now indi cations of a chang? in the character of the rock. The Copper King mine will probably be worked through the winter under a bond and lease. This was located in ’81 and has ores of good value. It is work ed through a shaft, and drifts cutting into the ore bodies. The Bear Mountain Tunnel, has been very wet for thirty five or forty feet, but the formation is changing and it is now almost a dry tunnel. The minera we! come the change, for the water made it a disagreeable place to work. The Hoffman company propose to blow in the fires this week, at their smel ter at Marble, for the last run of the season. They are erecting an addition to the building to accommodate a crusher and a sampler, and to put in additional ore bins. There is talk of some leasing contracts on a per centage of the ores taken out, and also some bonds and leases are talk ed of on mines of known value in the district. It is*very probable the winter season will witness greater activity than has been anticipated. Crystal, like many other camps in the state, is suffering because many proper ties in the camp are owned by persons who do not operate the mines themselves and refuse to lease to persons who would like to work such mines. Several idle properties here would be working if a lease of almost any eort could be se cured. It will soon be said of Uncle Billy Mel ton that he can strike mineral wherever he strikes his pick. After making the very promising strike in the Finley, on which work is suspended pending the putting in of a whim, he crossed over to the other side of the river to do as sessment work on the Emma. The first days work uncovered a splendid looking vein of copper and lead ore, on >yhich assays have not yet been made, A review of the state papers just now would convince the most skeptical that woman suffrage 1ms not yet eliminated the rottenness from state politics. Each county seems to be possessed of from one to a half dozen ‘ gangs. - ’ The state of Illinois is out twenty thousand dol a sr; Luetgert is out of jail on bonds: Mrs. Luetgert is out of sight, if not out of the world, and the jury is out of a job, is about as near as we can figure out the result of the Chicago sausage sensation. Elmer Wiley is making a splendid can vass in his county campaign. The record of the past two years in the sheriff’s office is ample and good enough argu ment to cause the tax-payers of Gunnison county to flock to his support. His vote will be much larger than two years ago. At last an English railroad advertises the putting on of a new great train that “is furnished with American vestibule connections and couplings of the most recent form.” It is a painful business for Mr. Bull to give up an idea that is English to adopt one that is foreign, but he sometimes does. —Salt Lake Tribune. Mme. Die Debar asserts that for .six years whue under the control of the spirit of Mme Blavataky she wandered whither the spirit might direct, in Chi cago, Central America, South America and India. The reincarnated being of the lamented Blavatsky seems to choose different climates with little distinction as to local surroundings. Leo XIII, Pope of Rome, is slowly but surely dying. For nineteen years he has been more powerful in shaping the po litical history of the world than most of its inherent or chosen rulers. Several times his influence has prevented war between nations, and his mediation guid ed the destiny of empires. Yet, in the evening of life’s day, at the ripe age of four score and nine, his sun is setting, as the sun of his native Italy might sink in the blue western skies at the close of a long summer’s day. Wrapped in a faith that endows him with unmeasured ec clesiastical power, in the presence of the dark angel Leo XIII is but mortal after all. Gunnison County Tickets. Populist ticket.

Every man thinks he is something of a weather prophet. The latest slang >6: "There are no streets named after you.” A man who is not married' can make a change, but a married man can’t. All the average man wants is an oppor tunity to make a fool of himself! The only way to keep people from knowing your age, is to move every year. Some doctors could not make their salt if they did not know how to look wise. Poetry is popular for no other reason than that every person has written some. Occasionally you hear a man say he is tired of “notoriety.” Don’t you believe it Every young man whe gets married is, accotding to the women, the best of tlfb boys in his family. Money is so hard to earn it is a wonder that people don’t stop experimenting with it after they get it. There is at least one thing to be said in favor of a drought: it doesn’t take the curl out of your hair. Why do women think that little waists are becoming? Everybody knows a waist is a deformity, like achinese woman’s foot. Give a boy permission to go any where, and his next request is that his dog be al lowed to go with him. If you are fortunate enpugh to have a halo hovering over your head, people take it for a cloild of suspicion. A woman always carries a pocket-book when she goes down town whether there is anything in it or not. Book agents are said to look up people who keep horses in town; they claim they are easily robbed. Unless a woman looks sad when hear ing a band, other women do not feel that she has a soul for music. Go into half the houses in town, and you will find the women neglecting their own work to do church work. The country ia in serious danger: if the Lord answers the prayers of all the faith ful there will be another flood. When a candidate gets a five cent cigar in his mouth, and a livery buggy under him. he thinks ho looks mighty smart. There are so many unjust kicks made that when a man kicks with justic, it doesn’t receive the consideration that is due it. The people who really know what love is, are afraid to tell, for fear their knowl edge will give away an unpleasant exper ience. It requires so much courage to refuse a dead l>eat credit, that if a man can put up a good bluff, he can get all he wants for nothing. After a woman has been married twice, her love making must sound to a man a good deal like that which is heard in n phonograph. Whenever a man sees a church working woman approach, he might as well put his hand in his pocket at once: she will do all the talking. It is not considered that a woman’s grief at her husband’s funeral is what it should be unless the doctor has to be called to give her chloroform. A woman still has some influence with her husband when ehe can perspade him to put on his best clothes and attend a wedding in the middle of a week day. Queen Victoria is said to be worrying over the stability of the United States government, a country of which she has always been secretly fond. The old girl ha* no cause for worrying about us, but it is something to be proud of that a queen is lying awake nights on Our account. Make No Mistake! ....Here’s Your Chance eeee- C BARGAIN SALE.
