Silver Lead $3.50. The output of ore in the Cripple Creek district tor the month of November is a record breaker, aggregating almssttwelve hundred thousand dollars. The “Irish Joan of Arc.” who lectured at the Broadway theater, in Denver, the other night is leading a great fight for her country. By the way it might be ■oted that Ireland’s troubles have been Reflected of late. Germany has found a splendid pretext He seize some Chinese territory, by reason Of a few of her missionaries being killed. England has bought lots of territory in Africa and India with missionaries lives sad Germany is “catching on.” The American people are students, as li attested by the magnitude of the book toads. This month will see millions of copies of books go out over the land to please and instruct. “May the blessing •f God rest upon the Phonecians or who ever invented books.” When Denver builds an auditorium wt shall have a great problem solved:— how to make something from nothing, lor five years various bodies and com mittees in Denver have tried to devise methods whereby he city can have a great convention hall without expense co tay of her hide-bound capitalists. The real swell society this winter will lot be in the cities. Down in the wheat ■actions, where the people voted for Mc- Kinley, the mortgages have been lifted and the boys supplied with dress suits and the girls with silk dresses. The old fashioned country school spelling bees will be the swell events this winter. The preachers who would have us ex change the Christmas of our childhood lor ood without presents, candle illumin ed trees and Santa Claus, have assumed t Herculean task. Santa Claus is the favorite myth of civilization, and will be tha cherished idol of juvenile fancy when ochools of reformers who would abolish him are forgotten. From the daily Lanck, Dec. 3, lt®l Denver is agitating the question of how ts raise money to build an auditorium. ••• Durrant, the San Francisco murder er is to be tried again soon Moffit A Smith announce that the pumps will be ' ■Parted in the Leadville mines. — The %anish claim the Cuban war will end six months.

The Chronic Kicker. Kicking in the morning, Kicking all the day; Kicking if he'a busy, Kicking at delay. Thus the chronic kicker Fills his life with woes, Frowning, grumbling, wrangling* Everywhere he goes. Nothing ever suits him. Always finding fault; Every kind of pleasure He is sure to halt. Scowling at the children, Growling at his wife; Turning peace and comfort. Into constant strife. Kicking if the weather Happens to be dry; Kicking when the rain is Tumbling from the sky. Kicking in the summer. Heat then has no charm: Kicking in the winter, Then he’d have it warm. Kicking every meal time, Glaring at the meat: Often he is saying, “Nothing fit to eat.” Kicking when he’s reading. Grumbling at the light: Now and then denouncing Everything in sight Kicking in the morning, Kicking all the day; Kicxing in the evening, Kicking should he prav. Kicking while he’s thinking, Kicking when in bed; Wonder if he’ll keep on, Kicking when he’s dead. —Pittsburg Chronicle. Some Denver Postscripts. The president will soon have Tom Reed and the senate on his hands again. Lobbyists do not appear to figure in that congressional scrap over in Vienna. Tho president declines to see visitors during the birth of his message to con gress. King Humbert of Italy has an insur ance of $7,500,000 on his life. Ho isn’t worth it. Chicago councilmen are calling each other clowns and jackasses and the dear people are applauding. Some one suggests the onion as the Kansas state flower. It is the eyes of the world Kansas desires to attract; not the noses. Governor Pi agree of Michigan has purchased an asphaltum lake in Venezu ela, and will pitch in and try to make a fortune out of it. A correspondent says the reported prosperity in Kansas is all chaff. He evidently reached there after the thresh ing was all done. That Missouri man who was sent to the penitentiary for having twelve wives is said to be highly enjoying the quiet a*d peace of prison life. Schweinfurth hos decided to move his heaven fram Illinois to Wisconsin. Too much of the opposition place in the Suok er state to suit the reverend gentleman Dr. Evans, the dentist, died worth $35- 000,000. That shows what a man with a strong pull can accomplish, and also stands as evidence that his work was not of the payin’less nature. There is a movement on foot which if results successfully will mean a great deal for the camp during the coming year. The disinherited sons of George M. Pullman seem to have the right kind of stuff in them: they have both taken situ ations in the Pullman company’s factory and 'propose to rise by their own exer tions. King Humbert is one of the rare ex amples of a real patriot, in these degen erate days of the nineteenth century. Rather than break an alliance made with the powers of Europe, he will abdicate ; the throne of Italy to his son, and thus save his beloved land from bankruptcy and ruin. The Denver Evening Pott has added one more feather to its cap by securing | Artist Steele the famous cartoonist, who < has been employed on the Newt a long | while. Steele has a national reputation and his pictures are so pertinent as to be ' a greater terror to the enemies of the public than the most pointed paragraph, and the Pott is after the scalps of that class of people. Some other paper will be lucky to secure the services of Artist Gilbert, who has been on the Pott sever al months. Crystal is one of the most promising camps in the far-famed and immeasurably rich mineral district of the Elk Moun tains. The location of the camp is right in the heart of the section where the bounteous hand of nature was most lavish in distributing the rich and base minerals. One of these days the com mercial and financial world will hear of Crystal, as the hub around which will revolve the activity of one of the greatest mining camps on earth. 1898 begins on Saturday, and October will emulate the example; Sunday will introduce May; August alone will claim Monday for its initial bow; February, March, and November have Tuesday for their natal day; June is bom on Wednes day; The ides of September and Decem ber begin on Thursday, and Friday is the first days of April and July. April 10th will be Easter. Decoration Day and the fourth of J uly fall on Monday. The police of Denver have great ideas of what constitutes an important arrest. A Monday daily had a column account of the arrest of a notorious forger who was only released from the Canon City penitentary on Saturday, after serving eight years. The account solemnly says the police will hold him to investigate his record. He must be a pretty swift culprit to create a new record in thirty six hours. The crowd will come to Colorado when springtime breezes blow, and all the rivers are torrents of the mountains melting snow: There’ll be sons of ev’ry nation and daughters of ev’ry land, tho student out for vacation and the miner of sinewy hand. Tuey’ll all spend summer among us, to learn of Colorado’s fame, and when they go though they may have hung us, they will love Colorado just Ihe same. Judge Owers, who a few months ago came into prominence by reason of his own grand jury indicting him, is again in the public eye. The murderer of Duputy Sheriff Fahey who was tried before the Judge this week was sentenced to 24 hours in jail, the jury bringing in a ver dict of involuntary manslaughter, which Judge Owers considered equivalent to an acquittal. Now another romauce is shattered. A short time ag the papers were full of the account of a half-breed Cherokee Indian maiden who was a lineal descendent of the royal family of Sweeden, and heir to the throne. It turns out she is only an actress whose company left her insane in Stockholm, and her delusion took the form of supposing herself queen of the Scandinavian peninsula. An interesting Question has been raised in the federal courts by farmers in tne Arkansas valley in Kansas, who have asked the courts to restrain any further diverting of the water from the river in Colorado. It seems the Kansas farmers having prior rights, for the Arkansas ▼alley was settled in Kansas along in the 70’s, before Colorado agriculture had be gun to develop. We are pleased to note the improve ments proposed and in course of develop ment at our gateway point,—Carbondale. We undesstand that the pretty little city is experiencing a steady healthful period of growth. Her schools and churches, by which a towns candition may always be guaged, are prosperous and creditable, while her business men are enterprising and progressive. Don’t be suspicious if your folks act queer these days. It is about the time to j be hiding away smoking sets, toilet cases embroidered slippers and such things and you are not supposed to prowl : around and see them until the “surprise” comes on Christmas morning. j The reports of the fearful gales which j swept the coast of England Sunday and j Monday remind us of the description of the storm in Dickens’ “David Copper- j field”. The storm *.! this week was the most destructive known to the present generation. The Bible Institute 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, 111.

Co.* Indianapolis, Ind. 1 Atchison Globs Sights. Every man must run the risk off min. ' The best company at a Thanksgiving dinner is a turkey. Did you ever see taro left handed per sona shake hands? Everyone can play enough on a guitar to be disagreeable. When a boy begins to shave he always goes to au old barber. We wish somebody had a bone to pick with us that had meat on it. You can’t put enough clothes on a worthless man to disguise him. That which a man dreads most in mar riage, a woman thinks most of. If a Mary writes her name Mae or Mario, that settles it: she can’t cook. A soft, gentle, pleading voice soon be comes more tiresome than a rasping one. It is not difficult for a man to boa woman’s ideal if he lives in another state Tho more a man has to do with women the more he finds it necessary to lie. A man who can’t make a success of businass, is always very affectionate. When a man for any reason is unable to attend a show, he usually says it is not good. No doubt the gad fly that heads the swarm flying towards a horse, gets some distinction. We met a drunken man today who wanted us to give him a letter of recoin mendution. The greener a country girl is, the larger the city she imagines she would like to live in. Any girl who raves over a foot ball player will prove to be fond of gritty ' gooseberry pie. An ignorance of whist these days is ( regarded at an evidence of a very worthy ( woman. i Here is another thing against whisky: ’ those who drink it are always looking for i a better quality. Most people have seen worse things in private than they pretend to be shocked 1 at in public. i A man can’t control his heart affairs any easier than he can control an appe tite for smoking. A ’possum hunt is kin to a wolf drive. No ’possums are caught and no wolves ' are ever driven. Womeii have great respect fora woman who has her hair done up by a profes sional hair dresser, * Considering that every one is supposed to believe in love, there is a great deal of talk behind its back. A truly great man is one who can live in a very' small town, and refuse to be come small in his opinions. Dead beats stand so well in some com munities that they expect an apology every timo they are dunned. When a woman wants to give an un der handed swipe at another woman, she . makes fun of her dressmaker. I It is pretty safe to bet that a boy! whose environment doesn't include freck les, will never amount to anything. When a woman is said to be “lucky,” it is a sign that she neglects to do her share of the work, and nobody complains What has become of the old fashioned woman who knew how to make elderberry wine for sacrament at her church? A man is not a real thoroughbred until he can g% into a saloon, and have his favorite drink set out without asking for ! it. ! Somehow it always makes a man feel ! like laughing to hear a woman past forty speak of her mother as “Mamma.” j If a woman, after her husband dies, i has enough sense to keep the lawyers I from her door, she need have no fear of I the wolf. j After a girl has been out of town to take singing lessons, it is no longer said j that she sings a song, but that she “ren ! ders” it When a popular society gives an ama teur entertainment, there is one thing sure: you must take part or buy a ticket Some people win a reputation few being godd humored because they lack the backbone to fight when they are being imposed upon. ! When a number of women emerge from a store together, one of them always says to the others, “JVoie where are you going?” The real grief in s woman's life is not connected with a love affair: it is when her neighbor gives a party, and doea not ' invito her to iw i Make No Mistake! ....Here’s Your Chance MBs BARGAIN SALE.
