You'd expect such high grade paint as Certain-teed to
cost more, but it actually cost9 less. The Certain-teed
people certainly know how to make paint, and they know
how to price it. Each color stands on its own price,
based on cost. You pay less for those colors which cost
less to make. That's fair. Everybody pays only for

Brady's virtual decision to prose
cute for manslaughter is believed to
have been influenced by the fact
that both the coroner's jury and the
grand jury indicted Arbuckle for
that crime, refusing to accuse him
The grand jury indictment was to
be presented to Judge Shortail to
day. If Brady dismisses the murder
complaint by that time, Arbuckle's
lawyers will asg for bail immedi

Former Resident of This Locality
r Writes of Historical Incident
r , . of arly Life in West.
The Glenwood Opinion has quite
an interesting account of one of the
early elections of the west and which
was written by Milo Fellows, a real
pioneer of Denver, father of Rush O.
Fellows, well known newspaper man
who was formerly in Plattsmouth in
charge of the Daily Post and the
Cass County Democrat, but who is
now publisher, of the J3elle Fourche
CS. D.) Post. s'The account was se
cured from a letter"Witten to Mr.
Fellows by his father a short time
before the lattex's jdeath.
"After arriving ,;at f Plattsmouth,
Nebraska, some of the boys came to
me and wanted to know if I would go
with them to the. mountains, giving
me the plans which they had partial
ly completed," wrote the pioneer.
"On September 16. 1858, I told
them to count me in and we at once
formed a company composed mostly
of men with more or less property.
but mighty little money. Such things
as they could not do without I fur
nished the money to buy, while they,
in turn, furnished things I needed.
"I also bought a yoke of cattle and
a pony, ana on the eighteenth the
teams started west. I accompanied
mother and you to Glenwood, Iowa,
on your way back to Michigan, and
on the twentieth I left for Salt Creek,
overtaking the boys at Wahoo.
"The next morning we started for
a thirty-day trip up the Platte river.
"It was a long journey, rather
pleasant withal, and at one time we
had 500 Indians traveling with us.
"Some few mishaps occurred, but
nothing of importance and we arriv
ed at the mouth of Cherry creek on
the ground where Denver now stands,
October 23rd, 1S5S. It rained that
night and the next morning the
mountains were covered with snow
down to the base.
"In a few days wen went into win
ter quarters five miles above Cherry
creek, on what was later known as
'Clark's ranch.' We cut our logs,
floated them across the Platte, put
up our cabins and were living in
good mountain style inside of two
"About this time the first excite
ment since our arrival occurred
all over an election to send a dele
gate to Washington to represent a
territory to us unknown.
"There was a pretty 'strong' ele
ment among the settlers; in other
words, a 'drinking element, which
had decided to send one William
Clancy of Omaha, as our representa
"Our bunch and others among the
settlers did not take to the idea. We
proposed to Bend Hon. Hiram J.
Graham, of Pacific City, Mills coun
ty, la., as the first Colorado repre
"And now came the 'tug-of-war.'
"Before 9 o'clock in the morning
of the day set for the election a reg
ular mountain blizzard set in, and
the boys were somewhat out of sorts
with the prospects of a long winter
with nothing to do, which tended to
be monotonous. But the time was
here and we must act now or allow
them to Bend a drinking man to con
"No one deemed it his duty to take
hold and start the election board
going, so, after dinner, I told the
boys I was going to fix up a ballot
box. and, taking a cigar box, I soon
had a good one as good as there
was in Colorado at that time.
"Then arose the question as to
who would administer the oath- of
office to the election board. Some
contended that it would make no
difference in that far off country,
whether they were sworn in or not.
Others made it plain that everything
should be regular, in order that the
Clancy crowd might not find fault
with our books and throw our man
out if elected.
"They finally put it to a vote that
I should administer the oath, so
stood them up in a row, the same be
ing Moses Stocking, J. H. Tierney,
G. F. Griffith and William Younker,
and administered the oath used in
qualifying town officers in the state
of Michigan. Then Mr. Griffith
swore me in after I had taught him
the oath. Most of the others were
laughing at us, but we went thru it
straight as a string, opened the polls
and voted every man who would put
in his ticket.
"After supper in the midst of the
blizzard, we wrapped up our books
and ballot box and started out to dif
ferent cabins for more votes from
those who failed to brave the storm
and by 9 o'clock we had enough
votes to beat Mr. Clancy I think it
was about seven majority: at all
events we sent Mr. Graham to con
gress armed with the strangest, and
the first election credentials Colo
rado ever sent to Washington, D. C."
