The Denver Times Almanac.
The Denver Times Almanac for 1S98 is
fully up to the high standard set in prev
ious years by that publication. Succinct
facts about Colorado , including its min
eral , agricultural and industrial resources
are here contained , together with much
valuable statistical matter on the year's
production. Information of a state char
acter is a feature of its pages and the

been carefully and correctly compiled.
The Denver Times Almanac this year
not only covers matters of vital interest
to Colorado alone but contains many
pages of general information historical ,
astronomical , political and otherwise.
The book is issued in attractive covers
and what you don't find in the Times
Almanac isn't worth knowing. South
