DECEMBER 26, 1901. Oon|ress adjourned on last Thursday until Monday, dan. 6, 1902. J ,rm It is too late to say "Merry Christmas," but we wish all our readers a happy and prosperous Ne'~ Year. Secretary of the Treasury Gage has resigned. The position was offered Gee. Crane of Mass. but he was unable to ac- cept it on account of business and per- nonal affairs. It is thought that ex-Gov. Shaw of Iowa will be appointed. We are told that a responsible man is ready to put on an automobile stage be- tween Moffat and Saguache, and agree to make the run in one hour, in case the department establishes a mail route and he receives the contract. If we cannot gets steam or electric road to connect with the D. & R. G., let us have the automobile by all means. Governor Orman, anticipating an un- favorable decision on the revenue law, hu addressed a letter to each member of the legislature asking them if they would be willing to meet in extra session and repa~ the revenue bill. The general im- proton is that it is now too late to make the law effective for this year, and as it would probably cost the state anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000 to hold a special mmalon it is to be hoped that it Can he avoided. Here is the slate that Alva Adams, Governor Orman and Thomas M. Patter- ion, all in league against Ex-Governor C. S. Thomu, have fixed up for the state ticket next fall: For governor, J. B. Orman, For treasurer, C. W. Crowder. For auditor, David How. For macretary'of state, D. A. Mills. Alva Adams, of course, is to be the candidate for the United States asnata. H. M. Teller and C. S. Thomas will have to be satisfied with what is left. Senator Teller does not approve of the single tax amendment to be voted on at the next state election. This is what he ears about it: "I do not anticipate any trouble about the single tag amendment. Bucklin and a few others are very much interested in it, but i'feel morally certain that it is not likely to succeed in Colo- rado. It cannot be put iu operation without a constitutional amendment, and that I don't believe it is possible to se- cure. I am myself, not a single tax man. I don't believe it is calculated to relieve the people as Senator Bunklin and a few others believe." PROPOSED TAX AMENDMENT. Senator Bucklin'e Australian tax amendment ie receiving considerable no- tice at peesent by the people and preu of the state. This amendment is to be submitted to the people of this state next fall, and the more it is discussed and explained the better it will be for all oonoarned. Many protest that it is t X" not a "single ~ scheme, while Senator Teller end others term it such, Mr. Bucklin is making speeches tn its behalf in different sections of the stale, and it is said that "sockiess" jerry Simpson, of l~aDsas, and Tom L. Johnson, of Cleve- land, who are both said to be "single taxers," will be brought here to talk for the amendment. It may be that this proposed amendment to our state con- stitution will be the main issue in our next campaign. The principal sections of the Bucklin amendment read as follows: Once in four years, but not oftener, the voters of any county m the state may by vote at any general election, exempt or refuse to exempt from all taxation for county, city, town, school, road and other local purposes, any or all personal prop- ~'ty or improvements on land, but neith- er the whole nor any part of the full cash value of any rights of way, fran- ohis~ in public ways or land, exclusive of the improvements thereon, shall be so exempted: provived, however, that such question be submitted to the voters by virtue of a petition therefor, signed and oworn to by not lees than 100 resident tax payers of such county, and filed with the county clerk and recorder not lass than thirty nor more than ninety days before the day of election, The rate of taxation on property for stats purposes shall never exceed 4 mills on e~h $1 of valuation, but the provi- miens of this section shall not apply to rights of way, franchises in public ways, or land, the full cash value of which may be taxed at such additional rate, not ex- oqmding 2 mills of each $1 of a~ed valuataon, as shall be provided by law, after exempting all personal property sad improvements thereon from such ad- ditional rate of taxation.

TAhe very laughable little drama entitled Little Brown Jug was ~iven at the high school building last Friday evening by the pupils aud teachers, that was witnessed by a large and appreciative audience. The principal character, that of Jarius Jordan, a Yankee, was very ~bly played by Prof. J. B. Morgan, who is not only a good whittler, but an adept the question. Blanche O Neff ,allio Peeslee, came near having to do the proposing herself, but her good looks ami entransing ways finally carried the day. Elmer Davidson, as John Nutter, made a very good shoemaker and would have been a model father if it had not been for the little brown jug, his hard headedness, and a propensity for specu- lation, Prof. J. R, Morgan, as Henry Douglas, was an ardent woorer but ,in spite of his wealth and high standing, he was not able to win the lady of his choice. Maud Ickes, as Mary Nutter, the shoemaker's danghter, played her part very well. She was not backward in throwing over the rich Henry Douglas and falling in love with her father's ap- prentice, whom she nursed to health i after he was nearly killed. Ernest Slots as Ned Hartshorn, the apprentice, was eo good natured that he could not help smiling even when he was woumied i nearly unto death. Stella Hurt, as Han- nah Nutter, the shoemaker's wife, looked rather young to have a daughter and son grown up, but she acted her part i well. Archie Locket, as Will Nutter, acted the part of an inebriate to perfec- tion. It was gratifying to find him tak- ing a new turn and using the little brown jug to a better purpose. On the whole the rendering of the play showed that the actors had worked hard to learn their parts and they are to be congratu- lated on the success attendit:g their first appearance on the stage. Mr. and Mrs. Rockwetlenter~ained the a~Miedce bo- ween acts with piano and violin music. The receipts from the entertaimnent amounted to abot*t $~t0. .... 7-'.-- .... BAD EYES. A.Rreat many of the ills of man came from bad eyes or ill-fitting glasses, and can be remedied by wearing spectacles that actually fit the eyes. Prof. Smith has had years of experience in this line of work, and has the necessary instrff- monte and devices to accurately meas- ure the eye. He examines each eye separately ,and when he gives a person spsctaclas to wear, it is certain that the spectacles are exactly right. He has many testimonials from people that he will be glad to show anyone. Call at the American House Dec. 26 to Jan. 2. On Thursday the hearing in regard to the adjudication of water rights at this place closed shortly aft, er dinner and all the attorneys went that night to Ala-" mesa to meet Judge Holbrock in an el- !fort to. have any further adjustment stopped and annul what has been done. It seems that it has developed that this adjudication matter was originated by Atty. Bloomfield and all the other attor- neys have united in an effort to quesh it. --Creeds Candle..

Consumption was carry- ing off two thirds of them every year and the circus had to buy new ones. One day a keeper accident- ally broke a bottle of Scott's Emulsion near the monkey cage and the monkeys eagerly lapped it up from the floor. This suggested the idea that it might do them good. Since :hen the monkeys have received -egular doses and the keepers report very few deaths from consumption. Of course it's cheaper to buy Scott's Emul- sion than new monkeys--and that suits the circus men. Consumption in monkeys and in man is the same disease. If you have it or are threaten- ed with it can you take the hint? This picture represents the Trade Mark of Scott's Emulsion and is on the wrapper of every bottle. Send for free sample.
