The Sunday school shows marked improvement in attendance this quar ter. in spite of the bad weather. This week is reserved for a week of prayer at the Hubbard chapel. Much good is expected to result. Seventeen ladies enjoyed the charm ing hospitality of Mrs. H. A. Badgett at a dinner party last week.

Aunt Rachel, as site was familiarly known, was universally beloved in the community, where for years she has been a nurse of many households in Gunnison, who can testify of her love and devotion in times of sickness and death, and the passing ot this good, kind neighbor, the friends genuinely mourn with the bereaved children who have been so sadly afflicted. CANON CITY NEWS. That was a nice thins James Cald well did on Christmas day. when he fed the little folk of a church with candy and Christmas joy. Now Cald well receives a dime every time he brightens the surface of a pair of shoos. When he brightens the sur face of a little countenance, Mouded. perhaps, by poverty, ho-gets no dime Yet he is willing to swap the dime he Five Cents a Copy gets for the labor for brightening one lor the joy of brightening the other. How many men in Colorado, who have a thousand times —or an hundred thousand times—what Caldwell has who did as much on Christmas day? The color of the man doesn’t make half as much difference as the color of his acts. Smiles are legal tender with Caldwell —it takes the hard dol lar with too many of us. The man who is black outside and white inside is a better man than the one who is i white outside and black inside. Color [is not a measure of merit when it comes to the question of being human and following the example of the Lowly Nazarene. who said “and the greatest of these is charity.”—Fre mont County Leader. It has been whispered around in church circles that Rev. W. Brandon is considering a call from one of the strong churches of this state.

There is [ a well authenticated report that in the next month the regiment that is now scattered all along the Arizona -1 Mexico border will be again stationed l at Fort Russell. This will be good news indeed. The regiment has many friends in this section who will wel -1 come them back. Another report is to the effect that under an order of the war department affecting all officers alike. Major * Charles Young, formerly captain of . Troop L. will be returned to the regi r ment. He is now in Liberia, where he has been organizing a constabulary force such as has been found so effi cient in the Philippines.
