Denver, May 20th, 1880.
Ed. Herald: It is now nearly
three weeks since our arrival in Den
ver and thinking that a few scattering
notes from this locality would be ac
ceptable to your many readers, and
would be of interest L hastily pen you
a few inkling lines. We left Platts
mouth in the latter part of ult.,
for the west to Colorado and the
Reeky Mountains. Had thought of
giving a brief description of our trip
through but circumstances and time
will not permit at present and it prob
ably would not be of general interest
to the Herald readers, as some other
Denver seems to be one of the larg
est and most prosperous cities of Colo
rado, from appearance. We were
somewhat surprised at the growth of
the city aud the business going on
here. From the number of travelers
and the far west seekers from the
east and other points that arrive here
daily, one would be impressed with
the idea that Denver was the great
metropolis city of the west. It is esti
mated that the arrival of passengers
on the railroads, that centre to this
point numbers about three or four
hundred a dav. and even more than
that at times; however, the majority
of them only make this a temporary
stopping place for a short time and
then proceed on their westward journ
ey to Leadville and other mining points
in the Rocky Mountains.
Denver has at present its share of
pickpockets, tramps, thieves and
other specimens of humanity and it
has been necessary for the police au
thorities to increase their force and
banish them from the city at times.
Agricultural pursuits in Colorado
seem to be only secondary; wheat is
the principal cereal raised here al
though garden vegetables of all kinds
are raised in abundance, and probably
can't be excelled by any other State in
the Union. We an informed that
verv little corn is raised on account
of the cold nights and other drawbacks
of the season. The Spring here has
been cold, backward and very dry, not
rain enough this seasen to start vege
tation until the 6th inst., about three
or four inches of snow fell and about
the same amount on th 9th which
caused sufficient moisture to start the
grass and all vegetation. From the
scarcity of snow in the mountains and
the dry weather, the streams are very
low and and water very scarce. Old
ranchmen say that the streams are
lower now than has been known for
a number of years.
The grand old mountains that lie
west and south of Denver present
some picturesque scenery to the travel
er as he chances to pass through Colo
rado ; Pike's Peak, that well know point
that every school boy remembers so
well, looks quite grand to the behold
er ; on clear days with its snow covered
top, one would not think it more than
twenty miles away, however, they call
it-eighty miles or more. Long's Peak,
is observed by every one with interest,
its tops looking upward above the sur
rounding country and cam be seen for
many miles around.
Farm wages are from 625 to S30 per
month and plenty of hands to fill all
vacancies when any occurs.
While in Denver we chanced to meet
several old frlei.ds from Nebraska,
among the number. Mr. Tom. Brown
from Rock Bluffs; Mr. Henry Hagood
from Kenosha; and the Story boys,
formerly residents of Neb. We also
had the pleasure of making a call at
Mr. Baldwin's, a son-in-law of Mr. and
Mrs.W. W. Wiley of Three Groves,
and had quite a pleasant chat with him
during our stay.
I will give the market prices of a
few farm products in Denver, merely
to show the difference between the
markets here and the eastern states;
nearly everything is sold here by the
pound or cwt: Wheat, Colorado, is
worth S3 102 15 per cwt.; Cora,
1 201 25 Mr cwt.; Oats. Colorado,
82 002 25. State;? 81 751 90 per
cwt.; Hay, bald, S1924 per ton; Po
tatoes, peach blows, 2 002 50 per
cwt.; Turnips 2 cents per lb.; Flour,
83 353 50; Butter, ranch, 2630
cents per lb.: Eggs, 17 cents per dez.;

Honey, strained, 15 10 cents per lb.,

that she continued its use until cured,
and was made so enthusiastic in its
