for county assessor. Mr. Hawke

There is a case of destitution and
illness at 1603 Routt avenue that
: requires the attention of the C. F. A
I. Co. hospital. If. S. Valentine,
[aged, and alone, lies there a very
; sick man, a pitiable object and not (
likely to withstand the ravages of
disease and hunger unless speedy
assistance is afforded. For four
years he has been in the employ of ,
the steel works and is entitled to
the assistance of the company. He
should be takeu at once to the ;
hospital where he can have care
and medical assistance. City |
Physician Dodds lias called upon I
him and the relief committee has I
furnished him with medicine, but
tijat only affords relief in part. He
lives entirely alone and helpless,!
and the right thing to do is for tin
hospital to take him in charge.

THE BESSEMER INDICATOR.
liettSMiuer has a candidate for county
assessor who like nearly all tier citizens
is a poor mau, and u workingman, and
the people of Bessemer desire to eee
one of her loyal son* elevated to this
office, ami she claims it us her just dues.
For the i>itst four years Bessemer has
not recened a particle of recognition
from the republican party, so far us
county offices ure concerned, and for
their loyal services in electiug the
republican ticket have received u few
clerkships for some of her citizens, not
one of w hich is a chief deputyship but
mereh subordinate clerkships. This
city fiolltwi about one forth of the votes
cast at the election last fall and she
certainly is entitled to one of the four
principal offices to be filled this full;
therefere the people of Pueblo county
Hbould have a candidate for one of these
offices, and thut is Mr. Huwke for
assessor, around whom all should rally
to a man, and if lie receives this nom
inatiou it will beyond a doubt greatly
strengthen the republican ticket from
top to liottoiu.
THE JOLLY JESTER.
Penelope—You say he has more
Drains than the average society young
man.* Perdita —Yes. Penelope—Well,
but has he any?
“You say he left no money?" “No.
You see. he lost his health getting
wealthy, and then he lost his wealth
trying to get healthy."
Little Joe —What is a phonograph?
Uis Mamma - A thing you talk to and
it talks back. Joe—Oh, I thought
that was a servant girl.
Miss C.—Some one told me the other
day that you had received seven pro
posals this winter. Miss P., compla
cently — Yes, 1 have. Miss C. Who is
the man?
Harry—Blowitz proved to his wife
that he clidu't marry her for her
money. Jack How? Harry—To show
her how little he cared for it, he spent
every cent she had.
“My dear young friend," asked the
good man solemnly, "do you attend
church regularly?" "Yes. sir. but I
didn't go to-day. She's visiting friends
out of town you know."
"It is a queer thing about good
looks." says a philosopher. "They en
able a woman to get married soou,
while they enable a inau to dodge
matrimony for a long time."
Landlord —I intend to sue you for
SI IK) in addition to the rent. Tenant -
On what ground? Landlord—Because
ever since j'our daughter began play
ing the piano my Newfoundland dog
has been out of his mind.
Elder Sister—You should make
friends again. It is absurd for an en
gaged pair to quarrel. Laura—Well,
then, iet Edgar say the first word.
Edgar, with a lively recollection of
the recent tiff—Yes. so long as you
have the last, you don’t care!
Miss Flyrtc—l am glad to see you.
I hope you won't be jealous, but your
husband was an old Haine of mine.
Mrs. Youngwife— Yes, 1 know. John
used to be very foolish before he was
married, but he has become quite
sensible now. You cannot imagine
how much he has changed.
SUNNY SMILES.
Teacher—Do peas grow on vines or
on bushes? Pupil, whose father keeps
a summer boarding-house They
' comes in cans.
■ Figg - Have you seen Jones' wife?
What is she like? Should you call ,
her pretty? Fogg—l might if I was j
talking to Jones.
| Simpson looks all fagged out.
What's the matter?" "He's been
counting up all the tilings he could j
have bought with lie lost."
"1 might have married half u dozen 1
better men than you," said Mrs. Jack
son Parke in the course of a little con
jugal tiff, "and what's more, I mean
j to do so."
Miss Upton—Did you tell him that 1
I was not at home? New Servant— j
; Yes, mum; but he didn't seem to be
lieve me, bein’ as I'm a stranger,
i Mebby you'd better go down and tell
| him yourself, mum.
“What’s the matter, old chappie?"
exclaimed Cholly. “Hand me your
smelling bottle, deah boy!" said Fwed
dy, faintly. “The young woman who
lias just passed us gives off a stwong
odoh of new gingham!”
“Old Workandslave took his first
lay off in fifteen years yesterday.”
"How’d he happen to do it?" Went to
a funeral." “Never heard of his doing
such a thing before." "He never did.
The funeral was his own."
A father with eight marriageable
daughters advertised as a last resource
to get them off his hands. He received
the following telegram: “Am a bach
elor and wealthy. Will gladly marry
one of your daughters. Send sample
at once."
Little Girl—Animals hasn’t any rea
son; they has only instinct; teacher
said so. I know toads don't reason,
anyhow. Little Boy—How do you
' know? Little Girl—'Cause if they
I did, they'd make their stools so they'd
■ screw up and down.
BRILLIANTS.
No man lives right who does not be
lieve right
There is no better excess in the
world than the excess of gratitude.
It is the struggle and not the at
tainment that measures character.
Next to acquiring good friends, the
best acquisition is thut of good books.
Before a man can deliberately do
anything wrong he has to convince
; himself that he has a good motive.
| If our whole time was spent in
amusing ourselves, we should find it
| more wearisome than the hardest
day’s work.
The man who undertakes to get
rich at the expense of his conscience
will not be long in finding out that he
can't do it
Why is it that when money is
wanted for the church, most of the
members think that somebody else
ought to give it?
Our sms, like our shadows, when
our day is in its glory, scarce appear.
, Toward our evening how great and
monstrous they are.
Don't hang around and wait for
somebody else to go ahead. Break
your own path. Don't put off to-day's
work until to-morrow, in hope that it
will be done for you.
How many a man. by throwing him
self to the ground in despair, erushes
and destroys forever a thousand flowers
of hope that were ready to spring up
and gladden all his pathway.
Some people have no perspective, in
their conscience. Their moral con
victions are the same on all subjects.
They are like a reader who speaks
e*-ery word with equal emphasis.
Nothing so much increases one’s
reverence for others as a great sorrow
to one's self. It teaches one the depths
of-Jmqmn nature. In happiness we
a r 4pMspw |and deem others so.

TRIED TO DROWN THE SOUND.
A Hoarder'* (Experience With mi I'ii
utually Voclfermi* Alarm Clock.
An alarm clock, according to the
habit of the beast, always goes o!F at
the wrong time and in a thin-walled
building it always succeeds in waking
the whole house as well as its owner.
The wear and teur upon the temper of
I the community is consequently greater
than that caused by the combined
efforts of a forgetful janitor and an
intermittent elevator. A young man
in an uptown house in Washington
who has been in the habit of over
sleeping himself, recently purchased
an alarm clock of imposing propor
tions. and a bell like a lire engine
gong. As usual the thing went off
about 3 a. m.. and the owner, who
had just fallen into a sound sleep,
leaped wildly from his couch under
the impression that the house was on
fire or some other dire culamity had
befallen. Occupants of adjoining
rooms followed suit, and the objurga
tions heaped upon that unhappy alarm
clock were both loud and long. A
policeman on the beat blew his whistle
j under the impression that u riot was
in progress, and the whole neighbor-
I hood was aroused. Meanwhile tlie
owner of the clock tried to stifle it in
; the bed clothes, but still it hammered
away vehemently and made more
! racket thun ever. Finally, in despair,
I he plunged the riotous timepiece into
a jar full of water, where, at the ex
j pense of ruining its inner mechanism,
its voice was stilled. The young man
; now hires a -wsboy to wake him.
Alive and Dead.
A lady had almost decided to buy
the coat she was trying on. The
weary sales-woman breathed a sigh of
relief. The customer had been hard
to suit. Even yet she lingered the
buttons and twitched the sleeves
thoughtfully. "What was tills fur
when it was alive?" she asked abrupt
ly, as she adjusted the collar. The
sales-woman hesitated and stammered.
She was torn between a business-like
desire to make a sale and a conscien

How We Waste Our Substance.
An American who has lived for sev
eral .years in Chinn has this to say
about our national extravagance:
‘ What the American family throws
away would keep a European family
from starving and would feed a Chi
nese or Japanese family. “Look at
this," and he produced a cylinder of
bronze as largo as a ’plug' hat. “Here
Is a Chinese stove, or oven. With
four or live pieces of charcoal a Mon
golian will tnnkc tea and cook rice
and eggs over that,while an American
domestic would use at least n hod of
coal in the same operation.
The Hairs of the Head Numbered.
"Dr. Wilson, a well known English
authority," remarks the New York
Herald, "says that the average num
ber of hairs to the square inch on a
human scalp is about 1.000, and the
whole number of hairs on the scalp of
an adult is in the neighborhood of
120,000. Dr. Walnoyer asserts that he
counted, in the space of a quarter of
an inch, on tiie crown of a man's head,
2U3 hairs, while he counted only 125
in the same space on the occiput, and
!1J on the anterior part of the scalp."
Hobson’s Choice.
A financier of doubtful reputation
gave a grand ball. Dsncing was still
going on at 3in the morning. As one
J jf the guests was about to retire, the
jnan in charge of the cloak room
: aanded him the first top coat that
:ame in his way. “But this is not
nine." “Not yours? lam very sorry.
'ft is the liest one left.” “But mine
was new; perfectly new.” “Oh! the
{ oew ones have been all gone since
112:30.”
