ful as the just fear ot' an unquaiiiug
criticism brought lionii to every word
aud every a St of every public man;
.and commending Us judgment to tlu

coun;ry does not fuilill iis true function
until party chiefs in caucuses and con

power mightier t:ia:i all of them com
bined, which will not come merely at
their call, which will not be content
merely with the regular patty trade
mark, but which for the sake of the
cause of its party, and despite Con
gress and conventions, will advocate
only worthy measures, aud support on
ly iitling candidates. Tims, aud tuns
alone, can the press of any color save
its own party from de.-ay, by forcing
leaders to depend for support not upon
discipline, not, up ou party spirit and
patty patronage, but upon the essen-:
tial excellence of the party candidates.
When leaders Know that their own
party press, which goes into every
house and reasons with every voter,
will ask lirst of all whether the candi.
date nominated ouht to have been
nominated, and whether the pjlicy pro
posed is a sound policy, and whether
those who propose to lead are worthy
and honorable and faithful leaders, the
first care of those leaders wid bo lo
provide a body of sound doctrine, an!
to present candidates like the old chev

"Oh, no! We just want to find out,"
said the boys.
"Well, there's a few trees back
there; but if I thought you wanted to

"Well," said the old man, "I don't
exactly know, but not before dark, I
The boys respectfully thanked the
old man, waited until he got out of
sight, jumped over the fence, and were
soon shaking down the burrs.
The shaking v as easy; but the open
ing of the chestnut burrs was more dif
ficult and unpleasant. At last the boys
had a splendid pile of handsome brown
nuts on the ground, and they prepared
to put them in the bags they brought
'Please don't take an more trouble,"
said the benevolent old man, who
t-to.nl by the fence beaming kindly on
the star! led boys. "I am not so strong
ns I once was, and I fear I can't hold iu
litis d g much longer. If you hurry,
though, I think can keep" bin here
till you get to the railroad track.

As the beys looked back from the
raiiroad fence they could see the stoop
ing figure of the old man scooping the
rich, brown chestnuts into a two-bushel
bag. Hartford Courant.
TJia Science of Kissing,
Science in tho last few years has
gained a terrible footing in tho world.
It h::s rallied tho dry bones of fogy ism,
mado pi out of worn-out theories, ttp
set ideas which havo been established
for centuries. Tho latest and most as
to ishing fact, that has been developed
is that there is a scientific mode of kiss

grab a girl around the neck and gobble
a kiss in a rough but comfortable man

ci'cle her waist with one r,rir get his"

qu. t e his Hps over every" square inch of
her countenance is no more. Science'
has proclaimed against it, an r.r-'t
shudders but remains silent. 'Tim old
style of kissing, which sovpids lik;o
tearing a, clap-board off a smoke-house,
is now considered bad tato, and, con
sequently, going out of fashion, al
though the majority of the girls admit
that science has d troyed all the com
forts of a long, lingering, heart-thrilling
kiss, and this fact causes hem. '6.

Coming down from Grey's lVak I
noiiced particularly "The Steven's
Mine" 12.000 ft above sea level and 1,
800 ft. above the valley. Some yeais
ago it was only reached by rope lad
ders, now a permanent tramway of
1030 ft. runs the ore to the valley (t hough
that valley is 11,000 ft. above sea level)
when wagons take it down tin- moun
tain. The tunnel is 000 ft. below ihe
top of the mountain aud about 400 ft.
iu. It was blasted and diilh-d through
frozen rock, the entire distance, a very
remarkable thing to me. We have all
heard of "frozen peaks" but I never
thought it literal only so called be
cause they are covered with snow, but
it seems they are literally frozen a
great depth down. In the lower mines,
say to 10,000 ft. the interior of a mine
is about the same temperature the
year round and while cool, no frost ap
pears, but much abovw that the high
peaks are absolutely frozen through.
"The Sweepstakes" mine, of which
Mr. Fletcher is one of the owners, is
two miles nearer the peak and about
13,000 ft. above sea level, but it is sit
uated differently and the tunnel will
be at least 1,000 ft. from the top of
"Snug and warm at Amity Lane's"
though it is raining hard outside we
have the best of dinners (that is those
Who can eat have) and afterward I
have a long that with the old lady.
She knows everybody crossed the
conthieut years ago to California. We
begin tit "the Missouri river and go
over the old wagon road, the old raneu
es, and at every place find some name
we know in common. Shu wants to
know if I knew Col. Chivingtou, then
later Tom Gibson, Henry Gibson (now
ot Omaha) and a lot more of people
that every old Nebiaskan has heard
of. The register shows that two of
Mayor Boyd's daughters, Vie Caldwell
and Mis Caldwell, of Omaha were here
July 26th so we meet and bear ot
each other all over this broad contin
ent. Hoping the ra.iu would cease our
party ;Ut till 4 o'clock and then start.
It rains, it pours iu fact, and 01. teach

showers (?) Colorado has had lately;
so our Grey's Feakers did not exagger
ate about their thunder storm on tlr
mount. There has been an unusual rainfall
here, and. tuo query is will it con
tinue and is the climate changing as
ours has; or is this an abnormal sea
son. More water has fallen here iu
the past ten days than in as. many
years before, if you can believe Die

Saturday, Aug. 13th. we left for
Middle Park, four of us in

day, for a wonder, and we got a pretty
good view of the mountains over
Threw miles below Georgetown we

Tho ladies kept a sharp lookout on
the off side down the mountain, but
as there was no eleciricity abioad
Fletcher kept the Umaw on the trail
and wo ;jut over safe. Turning to the
west we took the toll-road over the
pass ; tor it time we ride up a brancit
ot Clear creek at a steadily rising grade
for five or six miles; then turning ab
ruptly to tho right we begin to climb
in earnest. This pass is one of thr1

Behind us iti huge chasms How the

less abrupt outlines lay the ridges and
mountains, adown whose sides rusli
the mountain creeks that find their

though because li s.ertlis so
strange to us with our broad free
prairies to pay toll on a wagon road;
yet nearly al! the mountain passes
here are toll roads owned by com
panies or men of wealth. A few
county roads (free) exist in the vul
.'e.s and about towns. A si rung effort
is being made however by the state to
own and control her roads and make
them free. At present the toll roads
are the best.
Down the mountain twelve miles
to "Cozzens" and we have entered
Middle Park. It is dark when we get
there, and Mr C. very coolly informs
us he has no rooms, can't keep us. I
feel the effects of the ride and won't
go farther, so we compromise for a
bed on the parlor tloor, and the tired
horses go to the barn.
We had an excellent supper, twelve
nicely cooked trout on a big platter
forming the main course. Two other
lite guests sat down arid somehow
that platter was emptied "too quick."
Another just like it appeared and
when I left theie were only two of
the smallest fih loft on that; whether
Fletcher got away with tin ui or not
1 don't know, but ''uzzens sai I next
morning he couldn't keep any trout on
hand, p. nple that came along were so
The "shake down" was as good ac
cordingly as the supper. I got up at
five a.m.; the thermometer stood at
48 above zero and the baniueter
indicated a storm.
I might as well say here that I had
worn lay overcoat all day and found .a
handkerchief round my throat not un
comfortable that morning.
The Frazier ltiver runs in the rear
of the house and is generally full of
trout. The high water just now
