JUST Above Cimarron in the high mountains, are the Cimarroncito, Urraca, Bonito, Ute Creek and Elizabethtown mining dis
tricts. In these districts untold wealth has tantalized the prospector from the time the Spanish government, tied it up in
he shape of an enormous land grant until March 1 5th,. 1908, when mineral scrip covering the entire district was issued and
placed on sale at Cimarron and elsewhere. Prospectors can now purchase scrip, locate claims, and -exchange the scrip for
patented title involving no obligation for development or assessment work on tne property. This arrangement! which is better
for the miner and prospector than the terms offered by the United States Government on the Public Domain, is without parallel
in the history of mining and is copyrighted.
By reason of this specially advantageous arrangement, which cannot be duplicated elsewhere, the mineral resources of Colfax county
will experience a more rapid development than any other mining district

There is gold enough to make it another Cripple Creek and iron enough to make it a Pueblo. No
where nearer than the Lake Superior region is there so much iron, and no where else is so much
iron adjacent to so much coke.

miles an hour.

Mr. Propper risked hi own life and
the lives of his wife and child, drove I

pants. , If it had not been for the fact that
aiancis nimulc bare toes had just
pulled out the switch lock of the au
tomobile, shutting off the power, the
big touring car might have forced it
self further out into the river and
drowned the whole paity.
As it was the car stopped about
ten feet from the sohrc ar.d one end
floated there in seven feet of water
until help arrived.
In the descent the wheels of the
auto struck the ground twice before
the final dive into the river, but the
tonncau landed right side up and did
not sink.
