NOVEMBER 9.8, 190t. We go to press one day earlier this week in order to give our force a chance to properly observe Thanksgiving day. Miss Stone has not been released yet, and latest reports say that the brigandq have issued an ultimatum threatening to kill her unless the full ransom is paid by Jan. let. The Colorado Springs Telegraph has been purchased by a company of Springs men, and about January 1st it will be combined with the Mail and thereafter will be republican in politics. Congress will meet in regular session on next Monday. The House will stand 198 republicans, 151 democrats and 8 populists and silver republicans, but it is probable that these last mentioned will ally themselves with either one or the other of tha old parties. The republi- cans will have a majority of about 40. Marinas have been .landed from U. S. i warships both at Colon and Panama, and Mat along the railway line to prevent in- terferenos with traffic by the fighting armies in Colombia. Threatened bom- bardment of Colon, now in possession of the insurgents, by a Colombian vessel was forbidden by Commodore McCree, of the Machine. We have received through the mails this week a three line local accompanied by a half sheet communication finding fault with us for not publishing the item last week, and instructing us what to do and not to do in the future, all of which was promptly consigned to the waste basket. The local was all right and we would have been glad to have printed it, but for the letter accompany- ing it. Town Marshal Morgan is doing a good job this week cleaning up 4:th street in front of the business houses. The town board should furnish a dump cart and have the streets cleaned several times a year instead of once or twice. Although Saguachestreeta are probably kept in as good condition as in any other town in the valley, yet there is no good rea- son why they should not be kept in a little better condition than they are in some other towns. Rather than be sat- isfied to have things only as good as other places, we ought to endeavor to excel in ecme things at least. It is expected that Saguache will have telephone connection with Hooper and Center this week, via Moffat. When this is accomplished people in Saguache will be able to talk with nearly all the towns in the county and the valley, having di- rect connection with Moffat, Hooper (~nter, Mosca, Alamosa, Monte Vista and Del Norte on the south, and Villa Grove and Bonanza on the north. Also with Salida and Buena Vista on the oth- er side of the range, and with the ranch- men up the Saguache creek for 25 miles and those between Saguache and Moffat aa well as between this place, Bonanza and Villa Grove. Now we only need di- rect connection with Creatone and a central office in Saguache and we wil have communication complete. GCO. W. Koogle was down from Iris a few days last week, and of course he called at the CBF.SOZNT office. If we were not in the newspaper business we might have become excited over the gold nuggets shown us from the old Lakota claim, now the 20th Century, owned by Uncle George and ye editor, a one-half interest each, and our partner says that he can go over to the mine and dig out more whenever.he feels like it, and we believe that he can, for we used to do it ourself a few years ago, when we thought the only way to get rich was by working a gold mine. But we have changed our mind since. Mr. Koogle reports the camp very quiet at present, but all the remaining residents hope for lively times again in the not far distant future. Thanksgiving will be celebrated all over the world today, we presume in the good old fashioned way, that is by eat. ! ing a big dinner of turkey with cran- berry sauce, mince and pumpkin pies, fruit cake and plum pudding. Some may eek, what have we to be thankful for? The people of this section of the country certainly can think of many things that they ought to give thanks for, Tbey ought to be thankful tbat they live in this valley that ie blessed with such pleasent weather, pure and healthy atmosphere and fine mountain scenery; for the good health that they enjoy, and the prosperity that is appar- ent on all sides; for the fact that no one need to go unfed or unclothed, or with- out a job of work, unless it be tbeir own fault. All these and many more equally a~ good things we ought to return ~anim tot. New Law For Tax Sales. Under the new revenue law a bidder at a tax sale must, first of all, bid the full amount of tax due upon a piece of prop- erty before his bid will be considered. Then, in addition, he must make a bid as to the lowest rate of/everest he will ac- cept in case the owner wishes to redeem three years from date of sale. The law says that this rate of interest shall be ae follows: 2 per cent a month for the first six months, and 1 per cent per month from thence on, to date of redemption.! The buyer who gives the lowest bid for interest, of course, is given a tax osrtifi- cote. Deeds Filed Per Record. Nov. 22. Probate court to W. H.

Secretary of State Mills reports that the receipts of his ofi~ce promise to aur. pass by $60,000 those of last year. Nov. 1 the office was $45,000 ahead of former Secretary Beckwith's first year. The in. crease is due to two things, the increase in the number of incorporations and the issuance of hundreds of certificates of authority to existing companies at $5 each. At a social session of the Salida Elks held last Wednesday evening, Jake Selig- man made the opening address. The Record, in commenting on the speech, says; "Little Jake indulged in some flights of oratory, but they soared beyond the reach of the reporter and will have to be imagined. It is the concenaus of opinion that Jake is more successful as a player of bass drum solos than as a spell binder. But he knows how to put an audience in a good humor. Jake de- clared that he felt like a full grown Elk and advised every one to follow hie ex- ample in securing the great benefits of the order. He said when he joined the order that he was about the size of the chairman, 'and,' said he as he tip- toed to look over the railing of the plat. form, 'just look at me newt' As a spell- binder Jake is a success, if he is little. He always attempts to exercise the teachings of the order as he understands it, by playing even--in social sessions. So the committee proceeded to nail things down and keep an eye on him." The Saguache boys who went up to Bonanza to work a few weeks ago are coming home these days one at a time. Ex-President Cleveland has been suf- fering with an attack of pneumonia, but reports say that he is now out of daeger. The Times of the 25th says: "Meam Bros. and Clark Bros., of Moffat, Cole marketed th/rteen carloads of good cattle here today." A communication signed "One Inter- ested," regarding sheep being trampled and scattered by cowboys, on the night of Nov. ~th, was received just as we go pre~, too late to appear in this issue. The Ladies Aid Society Of the Methodist church will have ladies and children's aprons, a few fancy arti- cles and home-made candies on sale in~ DunEs Hall Saturday, December 7th, during morning and afternoon.

"While eufering from a bad case of piles I consulted a physician who advis- ed me to try a box of DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve," says G. F. Carter, Atlanta, Ga. "I procured a box and was entirely cured. DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve is a splendid curs for piles, giving relief in. stamtly, and I heartily recommend it to all sufferers." Surgery is unnecessary to cure piles. DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve will cure any case. Cuts, burns, brui~ and all other wounds ere also quickly cured by it. Beware of counterfeits. Sa- guache Pharmacy.

Butler has presented the library association with the following books: Life of Queen Victoria; Iona; Loyola: Quillian Lectures. Samuel Forbes visited the library re- cently and after looking over our books could not resist the temptation of becom- ing a member. Unl~m something unforseen happens, the "Little Brown Jug" will be put upon the stage the evening of Dec. 13. This ie for the benefit of the library and everybody should give it their hearty support especially members of the asso- ciation. There will be no school on Thanksgiv- ing and Friday of this week, thus giving non-resident pupils the opportunity of spending Thanksgiving at home. A number of cases which appears to be mumps have recently developed in iohool. An exciting game of basket ball be- tween the girls of the public school and those of the high school was played on the high school grounds last Frlday af- ter school. Lizzie Williams was referee. Although defeated for county supt. of schools Mr. Palmer shows his continued interest in the high school by presenting to the library asevoiation Washington Irving's complete works in three vols.
