SAGUACttE CRESCENT. Trip from San Antonio, Tex., to Omaha. I found much of interest in traveling from San Antonio to Denver. The Pan- handle of Texas is entertsini,)g its full share of homeaeekera. Arouild Amoriila ttm land agent is both active and eloquent. The soil is good and land i,q selling for from $5 to $20 per act e, but unfortunate- lye part is purchased by the speculator. From this point to Denver it is known aa "The Short GrassGountry." I stopped at Colorado Springs in hope that thecog railroad to the summit of Pikes Peak would be open, but was all-appointed. There is little salisfaotion iu lookin~z at Pikes Peak from Colorado Springs, lho distance being but six or seven miles to the base. One must see it at a distance of 20 or 40 miles to appreciate the peak. Pikes Peak is unrivaled among American mountains. It has a more prominent place in the story of the exploration and oecupalion of the great west than any other name. Before the land westof the Mis~,,nri river was mapped, before the territories were bounded and named, Pik,~s Peak was adopted as the unofficial designation of this section of the coun- try arid thousands of the eager pi,,neers moving to the m) sterious west ehuse this mountain as their go, l. Other peaks of the Rockies are as high as Pikes Peak, but they rise with oth~r m,,untains about them and tbe views from their tops are n.t s. wide and diversified, neither can ttwy be .ooked up to from a plain opreading beyond the limit of vision. The traveler who now makes the ascent of Pikes Peak in comfort by its wonder- ful railway does not appreciate the amount of study devoted to the difficult problem by the bsst engineers and me- chanics of the perils and hardships at- tending the survey and construction of the road. Captain Pike probably had no idea that he immortalized himself when he looked upon the mountain which Perpetuates bin name. His pluck deserves this reward even if he did not sueca~l in climbing where, today, thousanas of excursionists go in luxury. The one hundredth anniversary of the discovery of Pikes Peak will be fitlingly celebrated in Colorado Springs Septem- ber 24th to the 29lb. Around Colorado Springs ia the most magnificent mountain cenery in the World, including the Garden of the Gods, the Wonderful Oanqns, Ute Pass, Bear 0reek Canon, the Giant Peak, discovered by Pike, from the top of which one can sea how the world is made. I stopped two days at Denver and aa a winter resort it does not comply with old fashioned requirements but represents a new standard. It is a place to loaf but not to languish. Its visitors rest but do not stagnate. The delight in being there lies in an ability to do things, not in an excuse to escape doing them. The visitor finds his koenssL joy not in idleness but in activity. People are moving briskly along with either no wraps at all or only such light ones as are worn in the east in the late spring and early fall. They are however Wearing winter suits and dresses. And they are using the unshaded side of tl~e street. Never at any hour--and this may be the greatest of all Colorado's virtues~ Will the visitor encounter that dangerous ahomination known as raw dampness. He may occtmionally tingle but he ~ll ~ot shiver. l~eaving Deuver over the C. R. I. & P. R. R. we found eastern (Mlorado a cattle Country with more prsiri~ dogs than cat- tle, The grass is never too short for the little fellows and they are interesting if they are worthless. Olose to the Kansas line a steam plow was turning up ablsck rich looking soil. The several herds of cattle seen seemed to be in fine condi- lion and of the better grades. I~or the first forty miles in Kansas the old time sod houses dotted the prairie in every direction but they will hardly av- erage more than one to a section, and they form a complete picture of c,,ntent ed Poverty. For thirty years I have watched With much interbst the homesteader fightb,g his way westward on the Kansas Prairie and in less than another ten years he ~ill have gained his victory sad sub- dUed Kansas. The old cattle trail which followed the buffalo trail is still visible in some places and while the ox-team has entirely disappeared the prairie chicken, ;the jack rabbit and the coyote still linger. I saw several fine exhibitions of tbe speed and skill of a pair of grey-hounds making it interesting for the jack rabbit and it was about an even match. The matured lack rabbit evidently is familiar with all the tri,.ks of his trade and is a much bet- : ter dod~cr than the grey.hmind Although w~stOrn Kansas has had an abundance of rain this spring We Saw a long line of prairie fire far to the nortl'. There is fair pr,,speets that the entire state of Kansas will be blessed with an- other good crop this year. Three years ago a quarter section of land in the WeStern part of the state that could have m bought for $200 to $400, will now ,500 to $2,000. I met a cattleman ca his way to Ohicago with 80 fat steers that he claimed would average him $80 ~h. They were fine spocimensof what Kansas can produce In the villages and cities of Kansas, ma and Texas the people ars in- 'lined to live beyond their means, while of the people on the farms live far means.

Juvenile Improvement Association. One of the fruits of Judge Lindsey's tour through the east. wilt be the nation- alizing of the Juvenile Improvement as- sociation, which has done such remark. able work for the youth of Denver, and we venture the prophecy that February, 1906, will ever after be associated with one of the noblest movements for the betterment of our country. The Juvenile Improvement association~ together with the Juvenile court of Den- ver, out of wbich it has developed, has saved more than 90 per cent of the boys from a career of crime upon which they were entering, has made more than 90 per cent of the truants steady in school attendance, has found work for idle, vi- cious boys of the street, and has kept more than 90 per cent of them at good work; has furnished exhilarating sport and play for boys who else would have no provision for attractive legitimate amusement, has led 96 par cent of the boys of the school and of the street to cut out vile personal practices into a bich they had been led, has wiped out. ciuar. ette smoking by lads under ~vente~n,i has stopped the selling of cigarettes, to- bacco and liquors to boys under seven. teen, has eliminated gambling in say form from the activities of 94 per cent of boys who started on such scarcer; it has enlisted boys who were tending crime- ward into activity for law and order; it has required fathers and mothers to pro- vide adequately for the moral and phy- sical welfare of their children; it has greatly improved the personal purity and sobriety of fathers and motherL The Juvenile court is now in nearly t hundred cities, and will soon be in ovary progressive American community. The next step is to nationalize tile Juvenile Improvement as.~ociation, to make the letters J. I. A. as universal as any in thin country. Wherever Judge Ben B. Lind- soy has gone he has carried conviction that he has beau raised up to save the hitherto neglected boys of the city and country slums. He has impressed upon thousands this past month that ha has a mission as well as a message.--b]ew York Journal of Education.
