He arrived this morn- ing at 10:35 o'clock over the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe and from the sec- ond he stepped from his private car was greeted by G~vernor Orman he was the guest of honor of the state of ColoradoJn general and the Quarto- Centennial 0f Colorado Springs in par- ticular. He was the predominating feature, as it were, of a day replete in features. He was the cynosure of all eyes; the object of continuous ap- plause and cheers wherever he showed himself; the one central figure of the banner day of the observance in Cole- ranG Springs of the ~wenty-flfth anni- versary of the admission of Colorado into the sisterhood of states. The vice .president arrived on the Santa Fe train at 9:35 a. m. and was greeted'on the platform at the depot by Governor Orman in a few eloquent words of welcome, to which he re- sponded with an expression of tha1~ks for the cordiality of his welcome. Another storm of cheers broke out an4 then, linking his arm into that of the governor, the vice president "walked through the cheering hundreds of l~ople tO the carriage in waiting him. Into the carriage he stepped, followed by Governor Orman, Adju- tant General Gardner and D. B. Fair- ly, president of the chamber of com- merce. The proces~lon formed in Pike's Peak avenue and as it moved up the broad avenue there was a hurricane of cheers from the hundreds of people that massed around the depot grounds and in the surrounding streets. As the head of the parade reached Nevada street. Just as the entrance to the main business section, the Pueblo band started up a lively tune. The sight that here met the gaze of the city's guest was awe-inspiring. At the foot of the avenue rose the great Antlers hotel, from each tower of whlch floated a mammoth flag. Upon its balconies and porte courehe were hundreds of people and banking up the street to the vice presidential car- rinse were thousands of other people. At the Antlers hotel there was an inspiring sight. While yet the cheer- ing continued the Colorado Midland band played "Rally 'Round the Flag" and 300 little boys and girls, dressed In red, white and blue, and wearing turbans to correspond with their clothes, marched up the center of Cas- cade avenue. They came up, and, grouping before his carriage, sang "America." Their childish treble seemed unusually low and sweet com- pared with the stentorian shouts and cries that had greeted him. At the concltmlon of the anthem Mr. Roosevelt shook hands wlth most of the children. Then began the forma- tion of the parade for North Park, ~ere the vice president was ached- sled to speak at 10:30 o'clock~ First came the high ~school cadets, then the G. A. R. drum corps, followed by the G. A. R. As every veterau passed the Vice President he lifted his hat. At North park there was an immense concourse of people, an almost impen- etrable mass. Here a large speakers' stand had been erected, from which Vice President Roosevelt made the ad- dress of the occasion, being introduced Governor Orman. Mr. Roosevelt fan as follows: "Governor Orman, you, my fellow citizens, and you men and women of this gl-ea state, I appreciate the honor that you have conferred upon me. I know Colorado. I know me people and I appreciate them and know what they have done." He then paid a tribute to the old sol- diers and Grand Army veterans before him, and said: "This anniversary which marks the completion by Colorado of her first quarter century of statehood is of in- terest not only to her, not only tO her sisters, the. states of the ROcky Mountain region, but to our whole country. With the exception of the a~ mission to statehood of California no other event emphasized in such dra- matic fashion the full meaning of the~ growth of oar country as did the l~- coming of Colorado." The vice president spoke at consld-[ arable length, his address being large- ly historical, broad in scope and statesmanlike in quality. The banquet of the state editors at the Antlers hotel at night was one of the most notable In the history of the state. Wolfe Londoner acted as toast- master in his inimitable way. Senators Teller and Patterson both spoke. Other features of the literaAT program were as follows: Frank Trumbull, "Our Future Mar- kets." W. L. Thorndyke, "The Country Ed- itor." Rev. ~'arton O. Aylesworth, "The School and the Press." Granville G. Withers, "The Arkaw- sos Valley." A. B. Seaman, "What I Know About Newspapers." Hamlin Garland. greatest of Ameri- can story writers, in a beautiful and characteristic "good fellow" talk on "The Mystery of the Mountains." H. G. LunL "The Bench and Bar." C. S. Thomas, "The Sensations of a Governor." Dave Day, "Indians and Other Con- stituents." Tos~tmaster Londoner grew serious in introducing Thomas F. Walsh, who spoke on "Progress of the State." W. N. Byers took the editors book to the early days in his address on "The Pioneer Newspaper." Aside from the speech of Vice Pres- Ident Roosevelt' the greatest event of the day was the grand parade, which was one of the finest ever seen in the state. The first division included, the ~tra department, band in Indian costume, fifty young men arrayed as ancient Spanish warriors, Santa Clara and Southern Ute Indlans, Colonel Sander- son's old stage coach, fifty cowboys in costume, fraternal societies. The .second division included mille tory old Rough Riders. The third division was made up of allegorical feats and the fourth was the flower parade. At the annual meeting of the Rough Riders Vice PreValent Roosevelt made an enthusiastic speech. The Rough Riders elected the follow- lng officers, for the ensuing term at their union to-day: President. Captain Fred Muller, Santa Fe, New Mexico; first vice pa'e~ tdent, IAeuteuant Dave Leahff, Raton, New Mexico; second vice president, Quartermaster Sergeant King Henley, Wlnslow, Arizona; secretary and trea~ urer, Captain W.

The United States geological survey has published a report of the opera- tions at the Colorado river stations during last year. It says that in the year covered by the report about 30,- 000 acre-feet of water was stored in the reservoirs of the Great Plains Water Company and the dam at the Twin Lakes reservoir was completed, permitting the use, during the latter part of the irrigation season of these lakes, to the great benefit of crops lying unde~- the canal of the Twin "Lakes Land and Water Company. The Twin Lakes river stations have been put on a more permanent basis. THe channel at the Interlaken station is permanent and of such a character that excellent results were obtained, but the station is not in 19011 as the storage of water in the reservoirs flooded ti~e locality to such an extent that It was impossible to make meas- urements. The lower TWin Lakes sta. tion was established at a footbridge constructed across the channel below where the artificial waterway from the lower lake enters the natural eha~- nel. ~Phe channel is rocky, but is fair- ly permanent in nature, the banks being high and not subject to over- flow. The object of establishing the two stations was to ascertain the amount of storage water turned out f~m the lower lake by the water company, in order to determine the qt~antity of water the company would be entitled to at its headgato below. The report recommends the removal, of some large boulders in the Arkan- sas river at Solids, as they interfere with the accuracy of the measure- ments taken there. The station at Pu- eblo is considered one of the most im- portant in Colorado, and the report s~ys: "It would be of very great value to the entire division to have a perma- nent station of concrete established here. The channel, which is of boul- ders and gravel, is' confined by high masonry walls, so that there is little change exCept that it fills during low water and scours out during high wa~er. The flow of the stream is rapid, but not too swift for accurate measure- ments. This station is an important one, being located near the head of the principal irrigation portion of the valley, only one ditch of Importance being taken o~t above it in the Pueblo district, although considerable water is used In the ditches in ,the neighbor- hood of Canon, which is in another water district. It is upon the gaglngs made at this point that the water su- perintendents and commissioners de- pend for distribution of water to ditches below." Would Abolish Iudltn Agenele~ If the ideas of Indian Commlssloner Jones could be followed out explicitly, and under practically the same corps of officials as are now on his staff, It is .claimed that within ten years the In- dian reservation would be a thing of the past, and Indian civilization would become a fixed certainty. Commission- er Jones, like most of the officials of the Indian Bureau, believe that the reservation system is one of the great- est drawbacRs to the advancement of the younger generation of Indians, and consequently he Is making every effort to break up the agencle~ in every part of the United States. The idea along which he is working is to educate the young Indian so that they will become self-supporting. When they have acquired this knowl- edge, they should be forced to make practical application of iL The best way to do this is to allot to each Indian a certain trac~ of land, which shall be his own, and which, under no circum- stances he shall be alllowed to sell or lease. At the ~ame. time the govern- ment will of course suspend payments ov annuities to the Indians, and they will be forced to live by their own la- bor and their own skill. In many instances this very thing has been done, and Is now being done on the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache lands in Oklahoma, But In the past an error has been made in allowing ~n. dians to take contiguous allotments. It is thought the best results along the lines of eivlllza1on would be obtained by giving the Ind,lans every alternate quarter section, so that white men will take up the intervening tract~ In this way the Indiana will be surrounded on every side by white neighbors, will ab- sdrb the ~deas of the whrtes, learn their language, and in every way be deprived of continuous association with other Indians. One fact seems to be generally uDder- stood in regard to the ed~eatlon of the Indian& and that is that as long as they are given a school education, but are allowed to go back to the reserva. tlon and associate, with uneducated members of their tribe, they will grad- ully, but surely, go back to their old ideas, and their education will have been wasted. From the white man's point of view, there is an incentive for making allot- ments of land to the Indians, a~d op~n- lug the residue to settlers. It Is elaim- ed that no Indian has need of more than 160 acres of land, and that all lands in excess of this amount for each Indian on a reservation, is a waste. Under the allotment system the white men will be allowed to go In and make some practical use of this vast area of Indian land. It is true much of the reservation land is arid, but the ingress of white settlers will be followed by the construction of irrigating ditches, and In this way, as well, Indians will be'benefited by co-operation. Wherever it is' possible the Indian bureau is abolishing the Indian agen- cies, and placing school superintend- ents in charge, thus making education paramount. This is the first step to- wards the final allotment of the lands and the breaking of reservations. Several such changes were made this tiun and the labor question, after Pueblo; A. A.

The truckman had Just dumped a load of kindling wood at Mrs. Old- ham's outside cellar door, when Norah appeared in the sitting room and said: "A boy at the door wants to see you, ma'am." Mrs. 01dham went out, and found Patsey Moore, who took off his cap, and said eagerly: "May I have the Job of putting in your kindling wood, Mrs. 01dham?" "Certainly, Patsey; Norah will go down and open the door, and show you where to pile the wood. How is your mother?" "She's better, ma'am; she sits up a good deal now." Mrs. 01dham knew that Patsey's mother had been ill for some time, and as she was a poor widow, that the family must be having hard times. "Come and tell me when you are done/' she said; and Patsey went cheerfully to work, for his mother needed even the little that this Job would give him. "Hullo! What are you stealing m7 Job for?" Patsey looked up and saw Hal Bur- net, a boy who lived next door. "Didn't know it was your Job," said Patsey. "Well, it is, I do all Mrs. Oldham's Jobs, and it's mean In you to sneak in like this!" "~ asked for it, and Mrs. 01dham engaged me to do It; that's all I have to say," answered Patsey. Hal went off muttering. You see, he liked to earn a little for himself, which was all right, but his father was well off, and Mrs. Oldham was glad to give ~the work to a boy that really needed It. When Patsey had finished the work he went to Mrs. Oldham, who gave him a silver quarter. "Thank you," he said; "but I think that's too much." "No," said Mrs. 01dham, "it's Just right. Tell your mother that I am coming to see her." So Patsey ran home overjoyed. "You are a pretty fellow to do a Job," said Hal to Patsey, the next morning before school; "Mrs. 01dham's kindling wood is all on the ellar floor," Patsey stared in dismay. "I don't see how it could have hap- pened," he said. "Maybe Hal went in and pulled it down," said his mother. "He couldn't," said Pat~ey, "for No- rah says they always keep the door locked. W, hat ~hall I do?" "Do?" said his mother; "go as soon as school is out, and tell Mrs. Oldham are sorry, and will try to do the work better the next time." Mrs. Oldham was surprised when Patsey told her. "The wood has not fallen down," shs said, "it is Just as you left it, piled away nicely." Patsey went hom~ feeling much re- lieved and his mother felt so, too, when he told her. "Hal," said Mrs. Oldham. the next day, "why did you tell Patsey that the kindling wood had fallen down?" "I didn't," answered Hal, with a sheepish look; "I said it was on the cellar floor, and so it /s~pfled there." "But don't you know that a story of that kind, told to ~nnoy and deceive, i~ no better than a falsehood? You need not come to me for any more Jobs, Hal."~Pl~iladelphla Time& As a rule only p~ain, substantial fOOd should be taken into camp, 1Y you have planned to go into the wild In- terior many miles away from any base of supplies, ample provisions should be taken along. These had better be pur- chased, however, at the last settlement where a store exists before turning into the woods. If camping under such conditions, it will be necessary in making up your requisition to know Just how much to allow for a day's rations for each man and figure ac- co/dingiy. An ordinary vacation camping out is a much more simple matter to ar- range, as camp is pitched usually with- in touch of some farm, store or suppl~ boat: In any event it .will not do t~b depend on the fish you catch and the' game you kill or the visit of the sup- ply boat. Sufficient canned soups, meats," smoked hams, vegetables, con- deased milk and dried or evaporated fruRs to last at least a week should be carried with you into the forest. You will find it much more desira~bIe and convenient to be provided with a fold- ing chafing dish or with one of the campoki~s of which there is so great a variety on the market. The chafing dish occupies littIe space when trav~,l ins, the stand, lamp, extinguisher, handle and dish being placed ~nside: the hot water pan. A camp-kit con- sists of various necessary cookingl utensils and a stove which fit closely into one another, the whole going snugly into a camp boiling pot, the lld of whlch may be used as a wash hand basin, or into a basket which can bo used fpr marketing purposes. All cooks know the value of a brisk fire. How to build one properly and keel) it alight is the most important secret of the woodsman. In building a fireplace, dig a hole In the ground, from one to two feet deep and about four feet long, on a slop~, if possible. Line the bot- tom and sides wlth stones. At one end of thls space place your flrestand. The other end will make an excellent baking oven. The fire dying down will leave the stone lining red hot and a floor of hot ashes on which many delicious dishes may be cooked. When you have to have the heat for a long time place the utensil containing the food to be cooked in the hot ashes at the bottom, fill up the slde~ of the hole around the pan wlth other stones and thoroughly cover it with more hot stones and timber. By watch- ing your fire and keeping the heat above the cover of your pot, the stones around the sides and bottom will l'etain their heat for hours. That your fire may be protect- ed in rainy weather, build around the hole you have dug a wall of small\ timbers, plastering the ends with mud or notching the logs. Make the wall higher on the north and northwest, as the winds and storms which would soon put your fire out come more quickly from this direction than any other. For further protection erect fotir posts, over which draw a piece of tenting, or lay saplings from post to post and make a covering of boughs, at a sufficient height to permit the cook to stand upright. It is well also to prevent your fire from being extin- guished by a sudden overflow to dig a trench around the logs. Trainlng Dog, Jumping is the easiest thing to teach your dog. First, put him in a corner and hold a cane before him, so that he cannot get out without leap- ing over it. You must not hold it very high, or he will crawl under it; make him hold his head up, however, and you will prevent that. Keep at it until he understands what you want, and he will Jump without hesitation. After the trick has been learned in the cor-' ner it may be tried out in the room. Later on you may get him to Jump through a hoop, and still later through a hoop covered with tissue paper, mak- ing him break through the paper as. he Jumps. This will require a good' deal of p~tienee, but it may be done, and is 'So odd that you ought to try it. Another easy trick is sitting up. Be. gin this In a corner, too. Place the dog in a sittln~ posture, with his back against the wail, and keep him In tha~ position by tapping him gently under the chin; he will soon understand whal~ you want. Then try him out In the room. Take hold of his fore paws, and, having raised him to an upright posl~ tion, force him gently down to a sit ting position. Gradually release his paws and give him confidence by cry- ing "Steady! Steady!" Reward him by a little bit of candy or some other sweet, and you will soon have him to that he will assume that position ln~ stantly on your saying "Up!" After you have taught him t~ "sit up," you may easily make him stand erect on his hind legs. Reward him after every trial and you will have no trouble about it. Then you can make him walk on his hind legs. Begin this part of the training by making him stand "up, and then graduall~ coax him along by offering the ~swset, hold- ing it close to his mouth, but making him keep his upright position by Y~ur commands. One Important thing in teaching a dog is never to allow him to come to the end of a trick without orders from you; you must not let him stop when he p~a~ms.
