The "Wesleyan mandolin orchestra
gave a concert on April I50th un
der the auspices of Riviresco castle
Lady Highlanders. The orchestra is
composed of about twenty pupils of the
mandolin and guitar department of the
Wesleyan conservatory of music, and
the program was a repetition of the
first annual concert recently given at
the Wesleyan univeisity. The orches
tra did excellent work under the leader
ship of Mr. Robert Rhone. The play
ing was smooth and in good time. Mr.
Rhone also plajed a mandolin solo in
which he handled his instrument skil
fully and obtained from it unusual ex
pression and gradations of tone. The
only other Eoloist was Mies Edyth Tyn
dale, a soprano of good quality and
considerable power. M'ipb Roberts ac
companied the orchestra on the piano
and Mrs. Roy W. Rhone waB the guitar
accompanist for the soloists. After the
program the members of the lodge re
mained for a dance.
Nothing has been more remarkable
in the history of the west than the en
tire change in Colorado in a few years
from a silver-producing state to a gold
producing state. Just a little while
ago the gold output in Colorado was
$3,000,000 a year; it is now more than
$30,000,100. Francis Lynda, the well
known writer, describes thi tremen
dous industrial development in an ar
ticle on "Cripple Creek," prepared after
a special investigation undertaken for
Scribner's Magazine. It is an astound
ing and dramatic story an 1 it is fully

Tears," described by its author. Had
don Chambers, as "a comec'y of tem

wholesome and high-bred, and Mr.
Drew has in it what is considered the
best part of his career at least one
which gives greatest opportunities to
the mobility of his art. Great scope ie

This suggestion was well received;
we talked the matter over and over,
and it was at last determined that tired
wives and busy husbands should sp6nd
a few weeks in camp. All four families
lived in the same block and the details
were soon agreed upon.
A new and coxmbdious compart
ment tent, a kitchen tent, an outfit of
folding. camp furniture, together with a
liberal supply of groceries, were pur
chased. Shot guns and target rifles
were cleaned and cased, shells Ioadt d,
reels and line3 overhauled and put in
order, and a quantity of brown and
gray hackle, coachman, professor and
white miller trout flies Jaid in.
It was six o'clock on the evening of
July 19. h, 1899, when we boarded a
Burlington train fur Rancheater, Wyom
ing, where we were to leave the rail
road and continue our joarney in
wagons. Our party consisted of a
bauker, a city officer, an insurance mar,
and a railroad employee, each with his
wife. With us were also Chester, my
thirteen- ear-old son, and Edie, the
accomplished housekeeper, whose au
thority in camp wad never qnestioued,
and whose cooking rarely failed to
evoke praise. Sometimes it led to gor
mandizing. The ride from Lincoln, Nebraska, to
Rinchester, Wyoming, is one of in
terest. The few hours of daylight left
us on the evening of our starting re
vealed Eastern Nebraska a sea of corn,
wheat and pasture, broken with islands
of trees, in which were nestled cozy
homes peopled with prosperous and
contented occupants. The next morn
ing we breakfasted at Edgemont, South
Dakota. On resuming our journey we
skirted the southej-n end of the Black
Hills, entered the coal and oil fields of
Wyoming, and passed through the Bad
Lands, which in turn gave way to the
rich irrigated valleys and well stocked
ranches lying north of and parallel to
the Big Horn mountains.
With proverbial promptness, the Bur
