Solomon says, in Prov. 22: f "Train up a ohild in the way be should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” This prophecy may fail In a few instances but In most oases right train ing counts for good, in the future life of the ohild. Our Sunday School stands for the Right and tries hard to train the child ren to do right things. But we need help of every father and mother in the entire community in our efforts to teach their children what the Right is. How often do we hear parents ssy, in substance, "Well, my boy or my girl Isn’t interested in Sunday School, my child doesn’t like Mrs. E for a teacher and he won't go unless he can be In Mrs G’s class. My dear parent, how much have you ever done to make him enjoy Sunday School? How often have you studied the lesson over with him, or done any thing that would help him to like Mrs. JjLfor a teacher? - 'How many parents of this community say to their childien on Sunday morning, "Come children let us get ready and go to Sunday School”, thus setting a good example for the child. Are you fond parent, interested enough in your child to go with him to Sunday School? Per haps you say that you are too old, or too tired to go to church or Sunday School. Do you ever wonder if Mrs. E. or Mrs. G. ever gets too old or too tired to stay away? No they are always there, duty calls them. And why are they there? Because they want their children, and your children and everybody’s children to learn how to live right lives, good lives, and useful lives. And while the few faithful ones are praying for your child, and wishing he might be there, and wondering why he is not; you are quite likely at home critizing the Sun day School and saying that you don’t see why it doesn’t do more for the chil dren. Why blees your poor starved heart and soul; Why don’t you do more yourself and have less time and inclina tion to find fault? r, - And In thn tn^antlm a !■ boy, on Sunday morning? He may be at any one of a dozen places where he ought not to be. He may be ganging around the saloon learning to drink and smoke and swear, he may be in some back alley listening to ribald songs or stories. He may be at a ball game or off fishing or hunting. Wherever he may be he is not in Sunday School, and whose fault is it? Don’t blame the Sunday School, nor mean Johnny Jones, who is always oeaxing your boy into Mishief. Go to yonr Bible and read H So. 12:7, and you will find the words of Nathan, the pro phet, to David: "Thou art the man”. Just think them over carefully. Next Sunday is Rally Day. Come out and help make our Sunday School bigger and better. Yours in the interests of your Children, FRANK M. PHILLIPS, Superintendent. MINUTES OF REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING Walden. Colo.

BURLINGTON TO COME IÑ EAST SIDE GOAL PROPERTIES ATTRACT MANAGERS OF THE GOULD ROAD. The Burlington People Own the Old Denver, Yellowstone & Pacific Survey and the Burlington is seek ing an Outlet to the North Park Coal. There is very good reason to believe that the Burlington Railroad may be built into North Park before many years Their surveyors ran lines over Mountain Home pass two years ago but failed to find a feasible route. Their people have since acquired and now own the right of way, timber, and all rights of the D. Y. & P. survey of 8 years ago. The road is now built under Burling ton ownership to Ingleside, 15 miles this way from Fort Collins. A surveying party has been running lines and levels all summer in the Medicine Bow Range and eastward toward the Poudre River, apparently seeking a tunnel route north of Cameron Pass which would shorten the line and avoid the several miles of snow shed certainly necessary on Cam eron Pass. Finally, parties have been securing samples at first hand of the coal from the Marr and Kerr mines and taking them out without advertising their pres ence. If a practicable route to the other side of the Medicine Bow Range at the head of either Clear Creek or Kelly Canon can be secured, the range is so thin and the sailing so plain on this side, (North Park) as to make that the eoo -wmiwMwmgiui: mB PHTnngmn rofttf to more coal, and that of quantity al - most beyond limit and quality of the best for locomotive steaming.
