the peak, or why he did not buy a meal
when he returned to Manitou, and why
he did not stay there all niht, he looked
at me in disgust and answered, "You
d'think a feller vanta to be ropped?
Don't I got my wittala pail by dther
veek in dem sprinks?"
In a nest of blue balsam pines near the
Cog road, nearly halt way up the peak, a
group of Nebraska univorsity boys
camped this summer. Everybody knew
about it; for whenever the cog train
went by with its load of passengers and
whenever a group of single footers hiked
themselves wearily along by the camp or
a troup of donkey trail passengers went
by, these leathery lunged youngsters sent
out a college yell that hushed the roar
ing cataract and startled the eagles
whirling high above the canon walls.
From Colorado Springs to Cripple
Creek there is lately put into operation
a new railroad called "the High Line."
Every one who travels over tnis road
agrees that there was no mistake made
when they named it. It'a a higher tler
and Hies higher than any other railroad
I know of in this county. It starts at
Colorado Springs on the very highest
ground that it can rind and pointing its
nose toward the sky mounts right up to
the very top of the range, winding its
way round and round, movingslowly over
creaking trestle work, diving through
rock-blasted tunnels, circling round
dizzy precipices this way and that, mak
ing loops and lap-overs and tying itself
in a double bow knot over and over again
until it lands you at Cripple Creek, the
most disappointing, deso'ate, treeless and
cheerless place you ever eaw.
Cripple Creek is not in a deep gash
with canon walls touring above it, but
is built on a mile fquare of almost level
prairie land surrounded by an amphi
theatre of round, high, smooth-surfaced,
treeless but grass-covered hills. The
whole scene in this Cripple Creek min
ing region is not one of mountains but of
very high, vory round and shapely and
very smooth bills, all etriped and rib
boned round and round with steam and
electric car lines, which wind and curve
and cross and recross and tunnel in and
out carrying people who swarm to see the
greatest gold mining camp in the whole
country. Here and there on the sides of
these steep, smooth bills you see cheap
looking and shackly frame buildings
shaped somewhat like the frame grain
elevators in the grain districts of Ne
braska. These show operated mines.
Besides these the whole country is gabed
everywhere with holes out of which has
been taken and piled up mounds of grey
colored dirt and rock. These are un-v
worked, but perhaps valuable claims, the
hole and the pile of dirt near it being the
evidence that the claimant has performed
the necessary work to hold his claim un
der the law. Cripple Creek is situated
on the top of the mountain range, just at
the foot of Pike's Peak on the south, and
is only 19 miles by air line from Colorado
Springs. You can look at it aod endure
the sight of it for an hour or two in the
day time, but you'll get the jim-jams if
you stay there over night.
