Alamoes Journal. Mrs. W. E. Cox, who is under the doc- tor's care in Denver, had a severe attack of asthma and heart trouble Sunday evening and grave fears were entertain- ed that she was dying, but after several houri of heroic treatment by her physi- cians she was brought around, and every symptom now indicates that she will re- cover.

Upon the death cf his father, Mr. Tucker received part of the estate of the deceaee~l, valued at several thousand dollars. Frank Ulroy is the last to thresh in our midst, but by no means the smallest yield. One quarter yielded 5,150 bushels. Quite a crowd came to Center last Sunday to s~ the foot ball game that the Saguache and Monte Vista teams promia~l to play, but were greatly dis. appointed. As there had been no word sent here to the effect there would be no game, the people who had made prep- nrations to receive the boys and those who came to see the game knew nothing of the change of plans until the players failed to show up. Gunnison Republican. Then. Roberts was in from Cochetopa during the week on business. W. A. Clark spent a few days in the Coohetopa country this week looking after his mining property. Then. P.

Mr/iLehan is looking after some mining property there. The public schools were closed today owing to a case of diptheria in town.

Ira Marshall, who is mining on North Crsetone, is taking out $64 ore. He has a gold-copper property that is hard to beat. Judge D. C. Tracts was a pleasant call- er at this office Tuesday.

The machinery for the same is now on the road. PreeidentE. T. Jeffery, of the Rio Grands railroad, was the guest of Man. ager H. B. Davis last Tuesday. He was looking over our camp and district and was well pleased with the outlook. Manager H. ]t. Davis departed 'rues- day evening for Colorado Springs and other points in Colorado. Before he re- turns he will visit I'hiladelphia, and while there willoutliae the work to be pursu~l on the company's property here. It is said that over in Rio Grands county the candidate for -superintendent of schools was defeated because of a ci- gar treat. Miss Blackmore a most esti- i mable ,young lady, was the caudidate. While ins store in Monte Vista some gentleman friend jokingly accosted her to treat to cigars. She evaded the prop- osition gracefully but finally she was l dared to set 'era up. Whereupon she did buy cigars to keep on with the fun, for Uveral gentlemen in the store. This so unjointed the noses of the women in the town that they all voted against her. The probabilities are that under the same circumstances nine-tenths of the women of the town would have done just what MiM Blackmore did.--Antonito Ledger, SAGUACHE, COLORADO, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, [901. ii WHOLE NUMBER 1087. No More Car Stoves on The Rio firande. The day of the ear stoves on the Den- ver & Rio Grands has passed. The man- agement of the system has con~pleted plans for proceeding at once to equip all passenger equipment and engiues for steam heating. The work will be done iu shops of the company, and will re- quire about sixty days to complete. A number of the passenger engines and some of the equipment is already so equiped and the management in its poli- cy of employing all possible means to iu- crease the safety of operation has decid- ed to hurry the completinn of this im- provement before cold weather. When this ban been done the danger of fire ori- ginating from defective car stove willi have been eliminated. George U. Adams' New Uotel. The Denver papers l~st Sunday con- tained a picture and description of the new Adams hotel, built by George H. Adams and just completed It covers five lots on the corner of 18th and Web ton streets, is built of red brick laid in white mortar with gray sandstone trim- mings, and is said to be one of the finest hotels in the west. It contains 120 guest chambers, all outside rooms, and most of ~hem connected with baths. Has an in- ner routh a fine roof garden and a ball room. Mr. Adams has had many appli- cations from hotel men who wish to lease the property, but he has not yet decided what he will do with it. If he can find a man who will manage it as he desires he !will lease it, but otherwise will manage it himself. Killed By Young Daughter. Dr. A. N. Simpson of Creeds, and for many years coroner of Mineral county, was shot and instantly killed by his 15 l year old daughter Gertrude last Friday. The father and daughter had been hav- ~mg serious quarrels for soma time, and the glrl claims that hehad threatened to I kill her on more than one occasion. Just before the killing they had quarreled, but her father finally laid down on the bed with his face to the wall. The girl took a large revolver from a bureau drawer, and placing it to his back shot him through, killing him instantly. She then ran to the neighbors and told what she had done. The coroner's jury found that the shooting was justifiable, but she will probably be tried for what. appears to be a cold blooded patricide, an awful crime. Earthquake In Utah. Last week's earthquake shock wa~ very heavy in some localities of south- ern and southwestern Utah, and consid- erable damage was done. The shock was apparently the heaviest at Beaver City, where the Mormon meeting house, the court house and the Beaver academy were badly damaged, especially the lat- ter building, whose ' Walls show":great cracks as a result of the shock. Chim-: neys were toppled Over and plate glass all over town was shattered, ttardly a house in the town escaped damage, many of them being badly cracked. Another slight shock was felt atBeaver the next morning. At Cedar City, Kanab and Parowan the shock is reported as being very severe, plastering was shaken from walls and brick buildings were cracked. The shock was also felt in Durango and other parts of southwest Colorado, but no damages are reported from those places. Grand Mesa Lakes Leased. The United States fish commission has leased for a term of three and a half years the lakes and other property be- longing to William Radcliffe, ou the Grand Mesa in Colorado, with the pur- pose in view of establishing an auxiliary station for the hatching and collection of trout for distribution in the Rocky mountain region. Mr. Radcliffe is an English geu~lomau who ~ome years ago earns inl~o possession of a large tract of elevated table land in that seciion on which were a number of ~aturai lakes. l-Is converted these lakes into a fish re- serve and lust spriug one of iris t~uards killed a man, who it w.,s alieged, was trespassing up,,n Mr, R~dcilffe's~..prop- arty. The killiug led to very bitter feel- ing on tim part of the perseus residing in that vicimty and as a nousequencoMr. Radcliffe was forbidden to enter~the country and his I,uildinga and other improveaionts' were destroyed. He has made an unsuccessful effort to to have the governmout of ~J~e Uuited States nnd ulso the British government protect him in the occupancy and con- trol of hi~ pr,,perty. By his lease of hie properly to tim fish commission he will secure the protection ~,f ti~e lakes al- though the businesl done will not be ]conducted by him.-Colorado Springs Gazette. The Spanish senate has passed a bill prohibiting silver coinage. The sou th western ex press on the Nort h- orn Central railway from Washington to Pittsburg was wrecked last week hy a charge of dynamite placed under the tracks near Black Ridge, ashort distance north of York. Passengers were severely shocked and panie-strickeu but all es-I caped injury. Pieces of rail two and a half feet long were blown out of the track and a hole blown in the roadbed large enough to bury a man. A special from Washington to the Colorado Springs Gazette says: "Presi- dent Roosevelt has notified the cabinet officers that tbe pernicious activity of federal officeholders in Colorado must cease and he has instructed them to in- vestigate the charges against federal officials taking such a0 prominent part in the campaign this fail iu Arapahos county. It is said that Chairman Ford of the state committee and Chairman Bailey of the county committee will be required to resign as chairmen of their respective committees or they will be re- moved from their official positions" A suit which ultimately iuvolves aboul $200,000, which the state alleges is due it from various counties, was yesterday morning argued in the court of appeals. The suit is a test one, the amount direct- ly involved being $1,000. The state won in the lower court and the county ap- peals. In its complaint the state alleges that Prowers county owes it various small sums, aggregating about $1,000 which county treasurers in times past have collected io the shape of back taxes and interest and neglected to pay to the state its share. Other counties in Colo- rado are likewise m default of these pay- ments. If the state wins in the court of appeals each of the counties in default will have to pay to the state a sum ag- gregating about $200,000.--News, 14th. i flood Reading'F0r Everybody. : In addition to its special articles by fa- mous men and women and its stories by the most popular living writers of fiction the Youth's Companion presents from i week to week many regular features of great value.
