Now that the railroad is assured this fall it would be a
good idea to have a railroad day celebration in Walden at
the time when the first train is run. e cannot tell just
yet what the date will be, but if we are to have a fitting
celebration we should commence to get ready at once.
Get a display of all the agricultural, mineral and timber

desirable. Do something that will be a credit to the park.
Now is the time to commence.

An Undeveloped Empire.
Jackson county, which comprises
all of North Park in North-wester?!
Colorado, is the largest undevelopd
area in Colorado that is capable
of supporting a largo population rti
an altitude of over 8,000 feet. It
is sixty miles long by forty mil©
wide and is better watered than
any other comity in the state, hav
ing an abundance of water from
the Platte, Michigan, Illinois, Canadi
an, and more than a score of small
er streams, all of which are full of
fisherman’s paradise.
There are more than 300,000 acres
of government laud in the county a
large portion of which can bo brought
under irrigation.
The mineral resources arc practi
cally unlimited, there being coal, one
of the largest if not the largest vein
in the United States being located 15
miles from Walden, lead, zinc, sil
ver, copper and gold.
The mountains which surround us
are covered with pine forests so
• that we plenty of timber to keep sev
eral saw mills busy.
While the altitude is high and we
. are- smTounded bysnow capped moun
taifis we can raise winter wheat, rye,
barley and the finest hay that grows,
making it one of the best dairy sec
tions of the stale. All the hardy veg
ctables and small fruits do well if
properly cared for.
The Laramie, Ilahns Peak and Pa
cific railroad is building into the Paik
from Laramie and the track is laid
nearly to Cowdrey, ten miles north
of Walden, the county scat. This
road is going to bo one of the great-
I est aids to the development of this
empire and will give us transporta
; t ion facilities which is the greatest
‘ need of the county.
To the man who wishes to go to
a country where 110 can get a good
home, grow up with the country and
prosper as thecountry grows, wo say
come to North Park the best coun
try in Colorado.
Virginia Mitchell is on the sick list.
