Roberts and Kitchener, British
Commanders, with 40,000 soldiers,
surrounded the Boer General,
Cronje, with 4,000 at Paardeberg,
and after live days compelled him
to surrender. If that didn't require
British courage, what would?
If ten men can whip one that rep

Author of The Book
Of Genesis Unknown.
l>r. Lyman Abbott, discussing
Genesis, in the course of a lecture in
the Lowell institute Boston last night,
said Ins point of view in discussing
the Old Testament was that of mod
ern literary or scientific criticism.
• The book of Genesis was sup
posed to have been written about 1.
450 years before Christ. • said the
lecturer, “but it deals with a period
twenty or twenty-five centuries be
fore the time of Moses. Supposing
then that Moses wrote the book of
Genesis, how did he obtain the facts
found in the book? My own opnion
:s that it was written by some un
known prophet as a sort of introduc
tion to the. Bible."
lie called attention to the two sep
arate and distinct acts of the deluge
and said that to him Genesis was like
an edited book, li was known to be
in extstance long before the time
Of Noah.
•What were the resources, if not
legend and myth? he asked.—Den
ver Times.
For The Children.

The State Agri
cultural College.
Netir* lliillrtin No. fl.
It has been practically decided to
take tbe cadets of the State Agricul
tural College on a week's encampment
before the close of the College in
June. This will be given as a par!
of the Military instruction and dis
cipline as required by statue. The
regular dicipline of camp life will be
rigidly enforced.
Hundreds of visitors troin many
parts of the State have visi
ted the College farm for the purpose
of inspecting the now herd of Short
horn cattle imported from the Has!
It is die verdict of all that this i the
finest and most valuable herd ever
brought into the stale.
The constant increase in the
of the agricultural side of the
institution will demand, at no distant
day several improvements about the
farm in the way of sheds and feeding
yards and particularly in the build
ing of a barn adequate to the en
largement of the department.
There seems to have been a revival
in both the numbers and the interest
taken in the farmers' institutes of the
State during this season. Institutes
have been held already at Jlocky
Toni. Loveland; Longrhontand Grand !
Junction. Institutes will be held in
the near future in Lamar Las Animas.
La Junta, Glenwood Springs, Clier
felyn and other places. Through
these institutes the College has been
able to convey valuable and helpful
information to the farmers themselves
along many lines, particularly the
industries of sugar-beet and canta
loupo raising and the proper care of
Orchards. The number of institutes
held should be greatcly increased by
another year.
* The annual oratorical contests re
cently held were of unusually high
order. In the contests between tbe
Frcshtnan and Sophomore classes,
Oliver Pcnnock, of Bellvuc, of the
Sophomore class, won the medal,
while Miss. Marie Gill, of Laramie,
Wyoming, of the FreAhihan class,
was awarded second place. In the
Contest between the Juniors ahd Sen
iors, the gold iliedal was won by Mr.
Earl Douglass, of Fort Collins, of the
Senior class; second place being wod
by Mr. Frank Itasinussen, of Delta,
of the Junior class.
1 Washington’s Birthday was appro
priately- -celebrated by music and
orations in the College Chapel. Tbe
j speakers of the occasion were chosen
as representatives of the College
classes. Mr. E. \Y. Smith, of Castle
j Bock, was the College orator.
• An interesting instrument has just
been received by the engineering'
department, especially imported from
Switzerland. It is so constructed j
that on the mere passage of a pointer :
about any irregular-shaped figure, the 1
area of the figure is shown at once on
one dial, the statical movement on
another, and the moment of inertia on
a third. The instrument is used in
engineering and water computations.
The oltl order of having students
appear on Commencement day with
orations has been changed. The
senior class will give a ( lass program
on the day preceding and an annua!
address and the awarding of diplomas
will be the feature of Commencement
day. Rabbi William - Friedman, of
Denver,will deliver the annual address
on Commencement day

Editor North I’ark Union,
Walden, Colorado
’Dear Sir
Having received cvoral inquiries !
from North park people asking for
information concerning tlii- pari off
Wyoming I thought 1 would send ::
brief description to you, nut! if suitable
you can publish the same in your paper.
This locality i< strictly n Curl; conn i
try ami is settled by small ranchmen.
The day of big herds i- past heir
I located here last August, near the
junction of Hope creek with Greene
river, and about US mile- from Opal,
Wyoming, our nearest railroad point,
on Ologon shortline
The valley here, at Daniel, is front
one to three miles wide, for about seven
miles, then narrows to about one mile
in width.
Greene river is a beautiful stream,
much larger than thd Platte in North
park. Hor-’e « reek G much large: than
the Mi« . an creek in North park
The altitude at my place i v?.Y> feet.
We huve n-• v.' ml to .* peak of—l.g
to compare \\ d h La; antic nr Not . pa;\
country. We have had a beautiful
winter here, only a little snow and no
severe cold weather.
Elk and antelope are \* r\ •. morov.s.
Wild geese and ducks have their breed
ing places here, and ate plentiful in the
fall, some of the ducks slaying all
winter. Our game warden look after
the protection of game here. One of
my neighbors .-hot some elk h - : g!d of
my store day before ye-vrd y. but was
arrested y« torday. This i- no plain:
for a game hog, ami game is not being
slaughtered here.
Baric does very well here, and onle
ranchmen grow oais fot hay. but there
is li lr grain grown here yet !• at Top
ami Timothy both do well, and we have
the best native hay ii this -tat.
Settlers are coming hero rapidly.
When 1 lot ated hot o 1 Aug t t here
wore about 4,000 : ores of la au.d'ul land
between Horse creek ami Greene river,
just above anil adjoining my claim, all
government land. All has been taken
since. #
There, are still some good tracts of
vacant hind on the streams up near the
mountain.-. lam located about eigh
teen miles from the Montana Wind
River mountains east ar.d south, and
Wyoming range on the west. I have ri i
good view of Fremont's peak from my ‘
place. It is about 140 mile- distant.
Hav just re ived i • of ' 1 eat ib-,
lishment of a post-olfie;* :C my place, to
be called Daniel, and of the appoint
ment of myself as post-master.
With kind regards to yon, and all my
friends in North park, I remain
Your* truly,
T. P. Daniel. j

or something of that sort proved to

“tired natures, sweet restorer balmy
The }'Oii ng meu *.vho wore the long
gray hair weie not half so startling
as the old fellow with natural g;a3*

Did you see Topsy? Was'rlt she
just too cute ior anything? Her
delicate little lissome form around
which that striking gown draped so
touchingly, and the regular darky
kick to perfection.

And pr inces wooed her, rich and gay

For things were not as now yea know
Long and long and long ago.
Her father oft would musing -tand
And hold his little maiden’s hand.
And pointing, cry ‘From o’er the -, .i

And wept. “! cannot I*, your bride."
For tiling were not as now you know

She watched upon the bridge next day
Her bonny lover sail away
She dropped her ring into the foam
And then at twilight wandered home.
She found her father sitting then ,
She wept and kissed his silvei hair,
She loved them both,she loved them to,
Long and long and long ago.

All hope of recovery was gone, and
my friend said to the dying man's
wife, “It is of no farther uSe plac

may let him eat anything that lie may

relieved by the doctor's permisson—
for she had found her husband by no
means a tractable subject in the mat
ter of diet—went upstairs and said;
•‘ls there owt thu, could fancy to eat?
The doctor says thu san hev owt tha

sinking but hungry man. "I should
