WALDEN, COLORADO, DECEMBER 26, 1907. Lost on the Park Range J. R. Smith, of Steamboat, left Wal den last Wednesday for Steamboat, and while crossing the Park range was caught in a blizzard and nearly frozen to death. He was riding horseback and thought he could make the trip in one day. He was found Saturday by a searching party from Steamboat, with his hands and feet frozen. His horse was found the next day frozen to death. Mr. Smith has been prospectlng in Clo ver Valley the past summer and was on his way home to Steamboat to spend the winter with his wife and family.

The grade around this hoautifui bond is rapidly as suming shape and will soon be ready for the ties, which have been stored in the Centennial yards for some time. It will soon connect the grading further south and make eight or ten miles more ready for the rails.—Centennial Post. A Fine Time. The Xmas Ball given by the W. O.
