E. Hill of this place. CGeo. A. Prink arrived here last Thursday from Algona with his wife looking hale and hearty. After the amount of congratulations that we generally give to fellows that are recently married, and thankfully receiving the oranges [rom him, we took him over to the warehouse and weighed him. Inasmuch as we weighed him before he went away to get married, we were anxious to know if he had gained any in flijsh during the two weeks' layoff he has been enjoying as his honeymoon, but we found him all right and that be which that at the last iLa.sonic supper at Algona was richness itself. At this writing tbe future is not full of hope either, although a square meal is assured at Pueblo. From Kansas City we viewed the rich farm lands of Kansas, then the plains for herding, tbc-n Colorado's irrigated farms, (very successful, they say. j and then entered the mountains." Today many-attended the t^ereises connected with the forma! opening of the Chllds- Drexel horny for inlinn aad disabled printers. It stands a mile east of the Springs, is 144x40 feet, fivestorieihign, and cost $80,000. Mr. Child* was present, which was the chief matter of interest, for coming from the ranks of ' clerks and apprentices, he has not only made a vast fortune, but he has used it in such a manner that no man in his day has greater enteein and respect than he enjoys. He is not a remarkable looking rnan, simply an ordinary man Of business, whose aim in life has been to help others as well as himself. The main part of the members of our division did not attend the exercises, but went to Manitou and the Garden of the Gods. Manitou IB a beautiful village which nestles in a canyon at the foot of Pike's Peak. You"drive four miles from Colorado Springs, apparently down grade. In fact the descent looked so rapid that we were all mad at our driver because the horses went so slow, when someone happened to notice the gutters and lo! the water was running up hill. It took some time to realize that the road was really up a heavy grade, and that the mountains beyond made it appear the reverse. Manitou, like the Springs, has been built up by very wealthy people, many of them foreigners, and the buildings are all handsome. It would be hard to find two places of the size eo handsome to look at. From Manitou we turned out and went through the famed Garden of the Gods. Here we forgot all the trials of our eating houses long enough tQ recognize that nature had disported herself at some time in a crazy fashion, and had literally painted things red. Rocks of all shapes and sizes project in the most unaccountable fashion from the face of mother earth, and the man who could explain scientifically or otherwise how or why this menagerie Of natural curiosities catne to be, would have satisfied an editorial curiosity compared to which the anxiety over the state of the corn crop IB insignificant. After pasriing the gates we turned up a canyon and then came out on an elevated plateau along which wo returned to the Springs and from which we got tho finest view of one of nature's most magnificent scenes. The background was Pike's Peak looming up 14,000 feet, and anow cupped, its top clear for a minute and then hidden in fleecy clouds. Stretching down below the snow line came the bright green eedar slopes, and in the foreground Stood below us the red sandstone perpendicular pillars, which, rising 480 ieet, inclose the narrow opening through which the garden is entered. Thia scene so impressed me that I took tb,e money I had saved by not eating, aad bought a finely colored picture of the scone which in due time will give THE UPPER DES MOINKS visitors a better idea of. a finer sight in Colf^ rado than any word picture.

Our creamery has been closed some time on account of the bad roads. Last Thursday two enterprising Whittemore fellows took a wagon box and fastened two planks underneath and wenttoMittag's store in Letts Creek to haul eggs, of which he had a large supply. When they got two miles on their return trip and over the worst of the mud, they traded for a wagon and took in 20 cases. We suppose they went in with mud fly- in S- OCCASIONAL. '. ZO WA.
