Editor Orange Jadd Fanner:
In sny previous letters I hare written
only of the fruit and vegetable resources of
the Grand Valley. I wish now to call at
tention to soma other resources of this fa
vored locality. Immediately surrounding
the valley are the famous Cook Cliff Moun
tains; through these cliffs, for miles, large
coal measures crop out at the surface. The
coal Is varied in kind and quality, including
larze veins of a fine bituminous variety suit
able Tor domestic and steam purposes, and a
tin quality of cooking coal, and in quan
gos that ofe practically Inexhaustible.
Back oi the mountains containing coal, tho
precious mineral-bearing mountains begin,
in which the famous mining camps of Lead
Iile. Aspen. Ouray, and a dozen other
miuing camps are situated. All of these
t.'e tributary by simple gravitating power
to the town of Grand Junction, which will
on tuo completion ot the railroads now
building mako this one of tho great smelt
in? centers ot the West.
Now with regard to railroad facilities.
Grand Junction is to-day tbe terminus of
tho Denver k Rio Grande narrow gauge
from Denver westward, and the terminus
of the l!io Grands Western from Salt Lake
City east war J, and also of the Little ltoolc
Cliff Railroad. The Denver & Bio Grande
and tho Colorado Midland ore now building
a broad gauge road down the valley of the
Grand to meet at Grand Junction tbe broad
paue rood now building from Ealt Lake
eastward. All or these broad gaugo roada
are to be completed by next June, the grad
ing being now practically completed and
track laying commenced. These thus give
an outlet In every direction for this season's
crops, and in a short time several other
trunk lines will tie built here, fully a dozen
othors having already made surveys ornow
making them with a view of either ter
minating at this point or passing through.

THE HORSE AUCTIONEER,
In an Emergency lie Is Called In to Sell
The regular auctioneer was ill and in tbe
emergency the auctioneer from tbe horse
stab'.ea acioss the street consented to act
in his place. A big crowd of people filled
tii3 room to bid on a lot of household
(oods that had been advertised for sale. A
piano was the first thing offered.
"Now, ladies and gents," 6aid the horse
auctioneer as he mounted the block. "I
want to call yer attention to dis magnifi
cent pianer-forte. I have its pedigree here,
which will be furnished to do perchaserau'
he will be surprised at what ho has bought.
I would call jer particular attention to its
color a beautiful uiahoga y bay, one of
do most beautiful and desirable colors dat
kin be selected. Dis pianer hasn't ;ot a
npot or blemiBb. It is warranted to work
double or single. Examine ii closely for
ringbone, spavin or quarter crack. Will
some one in de audience please step to de
front and test its wind?1
A young rnan who combed his hair pom
pador and had a wild look in Lis eyes el
bowed through tbe crowd, and, taking a
seat on the stool, ran his fingers over the
keys, then through his pompador, hitched
the ttool a little closer, fonnd one of the
pt-dals, and began to thump out a tune.
" What do jou think of dat lick, ladies
an gents?" said the auctioneer, as he looked
triumphantly around the room. "Ever Fee
anjt'ing purtier den dat in yer lives? Never
a skip or a break. Dat gait's good fer 2:20
anywhtre. Now, what am I bid? Remem
ber, whoever buys dis pianer "buys a pedi

The ladies in the crowd looked at the
auctioneer in some wonderment, and tak
ing this for silent admiration he directed
his remarks to them directly:
"Now, ladies, here's a pianer dat I kin
recommend to jer on de dead square. Dis
is a single-foot instrument dat doesn't shy
or scare at de cars. Just as easy as a
rockiu chair. Gentle as a lamb. Doesn't

once more for de benefit of de ladies?"
Tbe young man on the stool "let 'er go"
aain, this time pounding out " Where is
My Wandering Boy To-Night," and several
other things of equal artistic merit.
"Now, ladies and gents," said the auc
tioneer, when tb.9 young man paused for
breath, "dat's a performance dat speaks for
itself. Remember, this panier is jest off
the grass. Hasn't beeu handled for six
months. hat am I bid?"
Rut there was no bid.
Tho ladies went ont of the room by
twos, threes and fours and left only the
men to enliven tbe occasion by railing out,
"Let 'er go once under the saddle," etc.

A FALSE LOVER.
BT EVA RICHMOND.
"1 am sore we do love each other, and
will be very happy together," she said,
laying her hand on his arm and looking
straight into his eyes.
"Of course we will, little trembler,"
he exclaimed in reply, playfully drop
ping his hand over those guileless blue
orbs, for their searching gaze made lain
uneasy. "Miss Hargrave need not fret
or fume, for we will show her yet what
a cosy couple we will make." And
Kitty felt perfectly satisfied with ber
handsome lover, and wondered how she
had ever been so foolish as to doubt the
genuineness of her attachment for
"When she saw Edward Wyndham, a
little later, and he had asked in his
earnest, sincere way if the "matter was
all settled and she was to marry Hal
Burton," she had replied with consid
erable warmth that she was, and that
ended it between the former lovers.
And so the days sped on, much faster
than Kitty liked, though they were even
hastening on her wedding day. One
night Hal had been to visit Kitty, and
had remained later than usual. When
the girl saw how late it was getting she
told him that he must go, but they stood
in the passageway some moments after
ward, Kitty swinging the night key
carelessly in her hand. Hal suddenly
caught it away from her, darting
through the back door and carefully
locking it behind him; he then called
"Good-night, pretty Miss Kitty! I
am locked out, but you are locked in.
Nobody will run away with you before
morning, I'll be bound."
For a reply Kitty had only laughingly
entreated him to restore the key and go
home, at which he had thrown a mock
ing defiance at her and darted away
down the street.
On his next visit Kitty asked once
more for the key, but he now declared
that he had lost it, probably on return
ing home that night, and had not the
remotest idea where to look for it And
so the unsuspecting girl was compelled
to report to her mistress though she
was very careful to conceal who the
loser had been and another key was
And so the time sped on until it was
within one week of the time appointed
for the wedding.
Kitty was sewing on some of the wed
ding finery and Miss Hargrave relaxed
gradually from the usual severity of her
manner to such a degree that she had
finally taken up a needle to assist her
maid in the work.
They sat rather late over their work,
and Kitty finally retired, feeling very
much flattered and pleased over Miss
Hargrave's graciousness. And so she
gradually sank into an uneasy slumber.
She could not tell how long she had
slept, but she finally woke with a sud
den start and a suppressed, cry. She
had been troubled with an unpleasant
dream and awoke restless and ill at
ease. A presentiment of coming evil
seemed to weigh upon her mind, so
that sleep was entirely banished, and
she could not close her eyes again.
The rain was over and the moon just
struggling feebly through the breaking
clouds. She did not light the lamp,
for it was not dark enough to require
it, but crept out upon the landing and
down the stairs with only the
moon to guide her way.
The back door opened into a
passage-way leading to the kitchen,
and into this she glided, pausing for a
moment, her heart beating fast, for she
suddenly thought she heard a step just
outside. In another moment a key
was pushed into the lock, and the bolt
snapped cautiously and almost noise
lessly back. Suppressing a scream of
surprise and alarm at this confirmation
of her worst fears, Kitty turned to
arouse the house, when a voice from
the outside fell upon her ear, whisper
ing the words: "All right"
In another moment the back door
was carefully opened. Two men en
tered the passage, as Kitty knew at
once, for her hearing seemed awfully
acute just then.
"A woman, by all that's lovely!" ex
claimed .one, springing forward.
"Quick, my pal, stop her mouth, or she
will alarm the house."
" She quickly exclaimed: "You here,
"Be quiet, Dick," said the young
man, for it was indeed he, suppressing
an oath, as he pulled at his companion's
Yes, I am here, Kitty. But what
are you doing up at this time of night?"
"Let me repeat the question to you,
Hal," was the reply spoken with some
bitterness. "I find that I have need to
be up, if I would not see my mistress
robbed and murdered in her own bed!"
"Don't be sqmeamish, my dear," re
turned the man, with gesture of im
patience. You are 'altogether too se-
ere upon u?. You. .know, Kitty,"
kere hid tone became rather more
e-der "that I would not harm a hair
t'f y nr head for the whole world. I
love yoq too well for that."
"Then why are yom here to-night?
Answer me that question ?
Believe me, Kitty, it is for your sake
alone that I have come," said Hal,
earnestly. "I am a poor man, yen
know, and I could not bear to have my
bride endure the miseries of poverty
with me. Miss Hargrave is a stupid
old maid, and could spare money
enough to make us both happy and
never miss it "We mean no harm to
anybody, only we must have the
"And to think, Hal," she broke out
again, "that I should have let you have
that key by which you have broken
into the house! You said you had lost
it How could you have deceived me
He only laughed. But his compan
ion, who had been a quiet witness of
this scene, now stepped forward.
"This foolishness has 'gone quite far
enough, Hal, he said, resolutely. "We
did not come here to parley all night,
bnt for business. What shall we do
with this girl, while we search the
"O, Kitty will be quiet. She
never peach on us. Go ahead,
never mind her, Dick."
"But I shall mind her," Dick
turned, drawing a pistol from
the breast pocket of his coat "The least
sign of treachery or attempt to betray
us, and I will not answer for the con
sequence. So show us the way to your
He placed the muzzle of the pistol
close to her temple, and she dared do
nothing else bnt obey. They paused
on the landing just outside the door.
"Miss Hargrave received live hundred
dollars one day last week, and it is still
in the house," Eaid the man, Dick, in a
hoarse whisper. "Tell us where it is to
"How can I?" she returned. "You
must think my mistress has abundant
confidence in me. Of course she would
not entrust such a secret to a servant
"Not another subterfuge," inter
rupted the man; "we are bound to have
"It is in a safe which is kept in the
cellar," said Kitty, reluctantly.
''And where is the key?"
"My mistress always sleeps with it
under her pillow."
"liou must get it for us, and bring us
her watch and purse. But attempt to
play us false, and your life and hers
shall pay the forfeit"
Miss Hargrave was still sleeping
soundly, as she knew by her deep and
regular breathing, therefore she per
formed her errand as soon as possible,
securing the purse, watch and key, and
then hastened out again, weak and
trembling from emotion.
Dick took them without a word.
Kitty longed unutterably to cry out,
or make some noise that would alarm
the house, but she dared not She
could only perform their bidding in
silence, hating Hal with an intense ha
tred for all this shame and mortification
that he was bringing upon her. O, if
Edward were only there!
After whispering a moment apart,
they gave her the lantern and made
her descend the cellar stairs first, light
ing the way for them to follow. The
safe stood against the wall, and the two
robbers hastened eagerly forward to
unlock it and secure their prize, for the
moment utterly forgetful of the girl's
A sudden thought flashed like light
ning on Kitty's brain a thought that
God himself must have sent The iron
door on the safe was furnished with a
spring lock a sure, careful movement,
and she might yet save them all! She
was still carrying the lantern, and, lift
ing it higher in her hands, as if to afford
them better light, she suddenly dashed
it at Dick's head who was nearest to
her, and sprang through the door, clos
ing it with a loud clang and a snap, as
the bolt shoved into its socket behind
The lantern must have been extin
guished when it fell, for Kitty heard
them .groping for the door, at first curs
ing and threatening.
But Kitty only remained long enough
to recover from her giddiness, and then
sped up stairs, and had soon succeeded
in alarming the house. The police were
called in and the would-be robbers se
cured, Hal Burton entreating the young
girl to save him to the very last
Edward Wyndham heard the news
early the next morning, and came im
mediately to the house. At first he
seemed at a loss how to address Kitty,
and she, observing his embarrassment,
went straight to him and laid her little
hand in his broad palm.
"I can read my own heart as it is to
day," she eaid, earnestly, "and, Ed
ward, I am very glad that all this has
happened, for it has saved me from a
lifetime of misery. I honestly believe
that your little finger is more precious
to me than all Hal Burton's pretended
Thus it came about that a wedding
really did take place on the day first
appointed, though Edward, and not
Hal, was the bridegroom.
LOST TUB JOB.
A quarter of a ton of coal was
dumped against the curbstone on Gris
wold street recently, and after climb
ing three pairs of stairs, a man, who
was anxious for the job, found the
owner of the pile and asked:
"Give me a quarter to bring that
"That's too much."
"How's fifteen cents?"
"Say, mister; I made a mistake,"
said the other, as he backed out "If I
should load that coal into my vest
pocket and bring it up here, and hap
pened to carry off a little dust in the
lining you'd have me arrested for lar
ceny and sent up for sixty days." De

How This Yfoaderfal Weapon of the Sav
ages Is Used.
This carious and unique weapon, about
which so much has been written and so lit
tle is really known, is a cur7ed piece of
wood, slightly convex on one side and
nearly flat on the other. It is cnt from a
i atnral bend or root of a tree, the hardest
and heaviest wood being always selected,
and its cune follows the grain of the wood.
Thus it will varv from a slight enrve to
nearly a right angle, no two ever being tbe
same shape. It is about three-eighths of
an inch thick and from two to three inches
wide, tapering towards tbe ends, which are
either round or pointed. Tbe edge is
sharpened all around, ana the letgth varies
from 15 inches to 3 feet.
This is the shape of tbe boomerang, bnt
the secret of its peculir flight is to be found
not so much in its general form as in its
surface. This upon examination, is fonnd
to be slightly waving and broken np by
various angles. These angles ba!anco and
counterbalance each other; somo, by caus
ing differences in the pressure of air on
certain parts, give steadiness of flight and
firmness; othei s give buoyancy, and each
has generally to bo determined practically
by experimental throwing. Some
boomerangs nipear to be mere
dented or crooked sticks; but they are
really implements which some blackman
has whittled and scraped till these dents or
angles have been properly adjusted ac
cording to tho boomerang principle. I
believe it is possible to make a boomerang
by exact mathematical calculation; but yet
I have never seen two exactly alike. I
have made two, apparently the same in
evety particular, yet, while one rose buoy
antly the other fell dead, because of some
untrue adjustment of the angle of its faces.
When all angles arc properly arranged the
boomerang goes through tho air somewhat
as a screw propeller goes through the water
whirling rapidly in its flight like a re
Gravitation and the force with which it
is directed cause its peculiar swallow-like
swoops, which are prolonged by the action
ef the floating angles in counteracting
gravitation; consequently, with spent force
it still kept on tbe wing, and often reaches
the ground considerably behind the
thrower. Horace Baker in Scribner.

Dueling in the Clerman Army.
Emperor William has not prohibited
dueling in the German army, as has been
stated. But no duel is in the future to
take place until there has been a thorough
inquiry into all the circumstances by two
colonels, who aie to allow au encounter
only if the provocation was a public as
sault, to which an apology has been re
fused, or when an insult has been offered
to a lady who is a relation or tho betrothed
of the challenger. Under no circumstances,
however, is a duel to be permitted when
the quarrel has arisen out of a brawl in a
club house, coffee house or any similar
placo; wben one of the parties has already
been "out" three timos, or when one of
the parties is a married man with children.

M. Aatoiae, the Parisian auaafar, ie
aboat to build a theater ia Parte on a new
plan. He says: "Whatever saccess any of
our creations nay obtain, we shall never
play it awre than a fortnight. It will be
played a fortnight whether the receipts
are enormous or not amount to a son. At
the end of that time other theaters nay
take up the piece and run it, if they con
sider its mecees is far froat bang ex
hausted. In this way we should succeed
in prodacing a great many pieces in the
coarse of a year, and authors of talent
will no longer be obliged to wait two, three
or four years before securing a representa

It the test of fortitude among the Indian tribes.
Bnt we defy any Cherokee. Sioux or Comanche
to endure tbe twinges ot rheumatism without
wincing. These, indeed are slight at first, but
grow in intensity until they become unbearable.
Xo malady is more obstinate in Its maturity
than that which gives rise to tneai. The more
need, then, of attacking it at tho outset. Fore
most among remedies for it is Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, safer and Infinitely more ef-
lective man coicnicum. veratrum and nux
vomica, all remedies which might prove de
structive of life in a slightly excessive dose.
Mineral depnrents, also, when not positively
mischievous, are far inferior in remedial power
to this salutary botanic medicine. It entirely
expels from the blood the acrid Imparities
which originate the disease, and enriches as
well as cleanses it. Constipation, liver com
plaint, dvgpepsi and other ailments also civ
way to it.

his books in the water all nicely floating
having been told that this was the best of

and to his surprise all of his bated hooks
were sitting out on the bank looking at

They Saw Him toning.
While two women were seated in a house
in Emanuel county, oa., they saw a negro
trying to approach the house without be
ing seen, by rolling along the ground like
a log. He knew the ladies were alone in
the house. Miss Marie seized her father's
Winchester, drew a bead and pulled down
on him. She did not hit him, but at the re
port of the gun the black rascal jumped up
and rau like a deer.
Washington Kissed Her.
On St. Patrick's day Mrs. Ana6tasia
Farsells celebrated her lfth birthday at
her home in Bajonue, N. J. With much
pride the old lady boasts of tbe fact that
Geo. Washington kissed her when she was
a little girl and sho claims to have wit
nessed the landing of Gen. Moutg nier
from Quebec. Mrs. Farsells' maiden nnim-
was Keeline. and she was a grand
daughter of Lord Fitzgerald, of Ire
land. Iler husband died sixty-four years
ago, and she noter married afterward.
They had three children. Her son E 1
ward died in Erookhn nt the age of 78,
while her other two children are Mrs. Ed
win Houghton, aged 75, and Mis. Anas
tasia Gordon, aged 71 years. Iu receut
years she atteuded the funeral of Gen.
Grant, ond remarked that the people made
more fuss over Grant than they did over
Washington. She is very fond of strong
coffee, and she drinks a large quantity of
it at every meal. She also takes a hot cup
of the beverage, which is the strongest
stimulant she ever used, just before going
to sleep every night.
The Pestiferous Swallow.
The question of the wholesale destruc
tion of swallows by electricity has at last
been taken up in France, and a report on
the subject was presented at a recent meet
ing of the Zoological society. In tbe south
of France long wires are systematicaMy
erected along the seashore, and when tbe
tired 6 wallows alight on them they are
stunned or killed by an electric shock. The
birds are then sent to Faris, where they are
used for decorative purposes.

Hiss Jennet Miller, the yoaag lady
who is at present waging a warfare among
New York's society women against the
present modes of dress, proposes to startle
society by riding in the park astride of her
horse. She is convinced that this is the
proper and only way to ride, and what is
more, she has the courage to put her con
victions ia this respect to
practical demonstration. The riding
habit to be worn is of a peculiar construc
tion. Of course there are the tioniers, the
garment clothing each leg separately.
Over these legletts will be a skirt
of a plaited variety, capable of indefi
nite expansion, so constructed as to ap
pear ordinarily like any other skirt worn
by women. This is divided into two sec
tions, each of whicn is fastened to the leg
letts in such a manner that it will always
remain in place aud not expose any of the
mechanism underneath. This is an adop
