THE NEW ERA
WALDEN. ... COLORADO. Young Man and Employer. When the inexperienced young men enters the business Held, the first thing ho runs up against is the other man's point of view. Ho starts out full of himself and of what he can do and of how ho can do it. After a time he begins to wonder why he doesn’t get on; if ho is a stupid, blun dering fellow, ho never finds out, for the stupid man goes through life fight ing his employer all tho time. If you aro eager to rise in tho world, con sider yourself in relation to your em ployer's business from his standpoint. Try to get at his aims and difficulties, and consider your work in relation to those aims and difficulties. Ask yourself whether your work is fur thering his aims, if you want to know whether you aro making progress to ward ultimate success. Try to think out your employer’s method of deal ing with his problem and with his employes. Not till you have gained •ome insight into these things aro you In a position to take tho first step to ward the realization of your ambition. Consider tho fact that the head of every business concern has definite •lms and definite methods by which ; he Is accomplishing or hopes to ac complish those alms. Ho requires em ployes who will consent to become the comparatively insignificant wheels In a more or less complicated ma chine, of which he furnishes the mo tive power. As the employe is ob liged in any case to come up to his employer's requirements if he is to please and succeed with him, li» will profit by meeting those requirements as fully and with as good grace as possible. Six and Five Point Star.. The stars on tho great seal and tne seal of tho president of the Unit ed States are five-pointed, while on the seal of tho house of representa tives they aro six-pointed. The 13 stars on the obverse of tho present half and quarter dollar are five-point ed. Tho reverse of the present half and quarter dollar is a copy of tho great seal, except that the clouds are omitted. It is evident that heraldry has not' taken a very Btrong hold in these matters in tho United States; therefor* it is not In the power of •ny one to say without a doubt why the difference In the stars on the flag and tho coins. So far as Is known, with the exception of the reverse of the present half and quarter dollar the stars on our coins are copied from the colonial coins, which were, no doubt, made after the manner of Eng lish heraldry, while the flag was made un after the design of Washington’s eoat-of-arms, containing three five pointed stars. Growth of Kindness. The American people, in their need ed work of reconstruction, are not losing their characteristic virtues of kindliness and good-humor. A leader in reform. In a private letter, writes thus: "After all, human sympathy Is the foundation-stone of democracy. I have imagined that our criticisms of life were becoming kinder; I mean the ordinary run of newspaper criti cism; and kinder means broader. Some of us, perhaps, went rather far in the heat of attack; and I think the increased kindliness, which leads more surely to sympathy, is an excel lent tendency. Lately it has seemed to me that we needed more than any thing else In this country kindly ex planations. If we could only under stand one another, intolerance would expire." All of which is true, declares Collier’s Weekly, and truly said, and charity is a friend and not an enemy to reform. Soon after King Edward of England decorated Prince Henry of the Neth erlands for his gallantry in rescuing passengers from the wrecked steam ship off the Hook of Holland, In Feb ruary, Queen Wilhelmina presented gold medals of the Order of Orange- Nassau to the three sea-captains who assisted In tho- rescue, and silver medals to the members of the boat crews who risked their own lives in the work. Lord Curzon. when he was a stu dent at Oxford, burned the midnight oil. won scholastic honors galore, took • brilliant degree and won the grand prise of a fellowship. Lord Rosebery, on the other hand, took no honors, was rusticated, and didn’t even get an ordinary degree. A man has just been acquitted in Mlssoeri on the unwritten law. When the people of that state all learn to read and write they will not have to depend on the country squire to tell them what is law. They can look in the book and see. President G.

Grand Junction, Colo. —Peter Swan son, a wealthy sheep owner, was shot and fatally wounded on Indian creek, this county, about thirty miles from Grand Junction, by fifteen mounted and heavily armed men, supposed to be cattle growers. Swanson was re moved to the ranch of W. J. Ponsford on Indian creek, where his death is mo mentarily expected. So far the iden tity of not one of the men has been learned. The shooting of Swanson is the result of the efforts on the part of the cattlemen to drive out the floclt mastefs from this section of the slope. Swanson, with his brother and an other man, were looking after a bunch of 2,000 sheep they owned. Peter Swanson w r as left temporarily to look after the flock while his brother and the other man prepared to make camp on the desert a mile from tho Ponsford ranch. Suddenly a band of fifteen mounted and armed men rode lip to the sheep. Swanson, who was armed, was ordered to drop his gun and throw up hl3 hands. He refused to do so and in an instant one of the raiders tired at him with a rifle. The bullet went wild and Swanson returned the fire. Then another horse man covered the flockinaster, taking deliberate aim before he pulled the trigger. The bullet tore a huge wound in Swanson's abdomen and he fell to the ground. The raiders then spurred up their horses and disappeared. Swanson was found by his brother and friend an hour later. The dying sheep owner is thirty years old and possesses a rugged physique.

MURDER WILL OUT SLAYER OF MAURICE CAPLAN CAN’T KEEP SECRET. DENVER CRIME BURNS BRAIN After Two Years’ Aimless Wandering, John’ Shire Confesses to Commit ting Cold-Blooded Murder in Den ver Home. Butte, Mont. —John Shire, held in jail here to await an examination as to his sanity, confessed that two years ago he murdered Maurice Caplau, a Den ver auctioneer, shooting him down while his victim w’as seated in his par lor with other members of his family in the early evening. When first ar rested it was evident that something was preying Shire’s mind, and repeated, questions finally induced him to tell. Haunted by the memory of the deed, he had resorted to cocaine and whisky in an effort to forget, and so induced temporary delusions w’hicli resulted in his arrest as an insane man. In his confession Shire stated Caplan was a wealthy man, and while in his store he exhibited a large,roll of bills. Shire said he was destitute and he followed the autioneer home for the purpose of getting his money. “I got into the place by a back door after he had entered the front door, ’ said Shire, "and, while going through a hallway in my search for the man, 1 met his daughter and she gave an alarm. When the man appeared I told him to throw up his hands. Instead of obeying he picked up a stool, which he moved as if he was going to assault me, and I shot him dead. I then went back to the saloon where I was em ployed as bartender. I remained there for over a day. Several men who, as I knew, were detectives,” continued Shire, "came around the place where 1 was working several times and 1 got frightened for fear that they were on my trail, but they never did anything about it. The man who ran the saloon where I was employed was no good. I tended bar for him, but he never paid me anything for my work, and all he did for me was to keep me drunk all the'time.” It was believed that Shire was labor ing under temporary delusions through the use of whisky and cocaine at first. It did no good to remind Shire that he was behind locked and barred doors, where nobody could get at him and do him harm. On all other matters tho man seeins to be perfectly rational. He gave connected and clear details of the murder he confesses he commit ted. The murder of Mayrice L. Caplan was the most cold-blooded and brutal ever committeed iu Denver. Caplan, who was president of the Denver Auc tion Company, was shot down by a bur glar in the parlor of his home, East Sixteenth avenue. The merchant and Nathan Stryker, a wholesaler, were playing cards. In the room with them was Mrs. Caplan, who sat in a corner reading. Little Ruth Mergaret Caplan was just enter ing the parlor from the vestibule when the burglar came in through the front door, which had been left jar. A revolver in each hand, the burglar covered the occupants of the room, or dering them to turn over all their money. Caplan had in one pocket over S2OO. He produced three or four dollars in silver and laid the money on the table, while Stryker laid down 65 cents, the contents of one pocket. “I want all you’ve got,” said the rob ber. Caplan then turned to his wife and asked her to go into the next room and bring more money. did as re quested, returning in a moment with about sl4 in cash, which was added to the pile on the table. But this did not satisv the robber. “I want the money you took in to day,” he said. This remark apparently Infuriated Caplan. He had been sitting passively through the minutes that it took his wife and Striker to turn over what money they had, but had grown gradu ally more pale. After commanding him to turn over the money from the sales, the robber bent over the table to pick up the litle pile of silver. At that mo ment Caplan thought he saw au oppor tunity to save his property. Reaching down he started to pick up a stool on which his feet rested. The robber fired the pistol he held in his right hand, the bullet entering in the region of the heart and causing instant death. Then*] the thug fled. _ wP Effects of Sunstroke. Violently insane, the sequence to a frightful night spent in the mountain-, nearly freezing to death, George L.

Raving and struggling with his keep ers for liberty, he fought them during the long drive from the mountain camp to the station, and weak and exhausted he recalls over and over again in liis delirium the awful night of privation. His condition is serious, and little hope is entertained that he will ever again regain his normal condition. Over a year ago he suffered a sun stroke while working with a timb* r gang in the mining camp, and since then his mind has been unbalanced, subjecting him to fits of insanity. Dur ing these fits he would be violent, and had it not been for the faithful care of his wife he might have taken his lif< A* a Woman Thinketh.
