The Philadelphia nnd Heading Railroad

The application for the pardon of Chas.
McDowell and James Tcrwllllger, who
were convicted of robbing Levi Michael on
the hill road opposite Espy, in May 1883,
will bo heard by the Board of Pardons on
the 18th Inst. From tho nature of the new
testimony recently found, together with
the able analysis of the case by Mr. Buck
alew, very grave doubts of tho guilt of
these young men have been raised, and
their petition has been signed by many
leading citizens. They certainly have n
very strong case on their side.
At u special meeting of the Winona Fire
Company held on Tuesday evening, the
following was adopted :
"Resolved, That wo do hereby express
our appreciation of the kindness of Messrs.
Hart, Townsend, F. P. nnd C. M. Drinker
for tho assistance rendered to this com
pany at our recent entertainment nt the
Opera House and for the excellent music
furnished on that occasion. While their
services to us were most acceptable, wo
hopt they may never need our assistance
in our organized capacity."

day, March 3rd, good until Saturday,
March 7th, inclusive, and will lie accepted
for passago on all regular trains. The fare
will bo 5.78, providiog 100 names can be
secured. If any of our readers desire to
attend tho inauguration of President Cleve
land, they should avail themselves of this
low ratu of fare, and send their names to
Mr. W. II. Smith, Milton, Pa., at once, as
100 names must be secured before tickets
will be sold nt the low price of 5.73 for
the round trip.
There are lots of tramps around. Many
of them nro strong, hearty, able-bodied
young men.prctty well dressed, who ought
to bo ashamed to beg. They are not
ashamed, however, and some of them de
mand assistance with brazen-faced impu
dence, rather than in suppliant tones.
There Is but one way to deal with theso
fellows, and that is to refuse to glvo them
anything. It Is no charity to help them,
and thoso who havo anything to give away
should bestow It upon the worthy poor of
our town, rather than on tho wandering
vagrants of the road. With somo united
action iu this respect nil tramps would
bo likely to give our town a wide berth.
Tho Danvlllo Sun says that when John
B. Gough lectured in tho Opera Houso at
at that place last week Wednesday there
were 300 pounds of dynamite stored in tho

this bo truo wo would advise Bloomsburg
people to stay at home hereafter, nnd not

Is hard to get a paying audience even when
a first-class entertainment Is provided, for
tho good of an organization which is kept
up for the benefit of every property owner
in town. A little dynamite seems to bo a
drawing card. But we don't believe the
tory, all the same.
The entertainment given for tlio benefit
of tho Winona Flro Company last Friday
evening was highly enjoyed by all who at
tended, -Mr. Burbank's recitals Included
both humorous mid pathetic selections, nnd
he held tho audience from (ho beginning to
the close. The singing of the Quartette
Club was well rendered, and added much
to the pleasure of tho evening. They wcro
recalled several times. Tho gentlemen of
this club havo been heard often before on
tho stugc at benefits and charitable enter
tertalnmcnts, and their hearers never lire
in listening to them.
Tho attendance was not what It should
have been, considering tho object of tho
entertalnement. A well organized fire de
partment Is necessary for tho safety of the
town, and all citizens should cheerfully us.

Santa Fo routo one passes through some of
the most fertile nnd productive counties of
Kansas, extending ns far west through the
State as Dodge City where the rainfall bo
comes much less uud whero very littlo can
be grown in tbo way of grain, owing to the
lack of rain, but hero Is whero the great
cattle range begins, nnd thousands of cattle
can bo seen surrounded by cow boys
mounted on horseback, to hold them In
waiting for shipment to the great markets
of St. Louis and Chicago. After leaving
Dodgu City we speed on our way to the
city of Pueblo, which is reached after a
rido of over 200 miles over one of the most
drenry nnd desolate looking countries the
writer ever beheld. There is nothing to
break tho monotony except an occasional
glimpse of the Arkansas river nnd small
clusters of cottonwood trees along Its
banks. Beyond the river, on either side,
the rolling prnirlo stretches nwuy until tho
sight is lost to view, only here ami thero
can be seen a few head of cattle runulng
at large iu a linlf-starved condltlou, thou
sands of which die every winter for the
want of protection, feed nnd water. Most
of the stock is now owned by foreigners,
as well ns about 21,000 acres of tho West
em stock range, who roll in wealth and en
joy nil the comforts of llfe,whllo thousands
of their poor dumb brutes on tho plains are
dying of hunger and thirst in tho cold of
winter. The government of these United
States Is certainly very tame in allowing
such terrible outrages to bo perpetrated in
this country. One will also notice an oc
casional flock, of several thousand head, of
sheep, generally in a condition similar to
that of the cattle, but arc guarded by
shepherds and dogs in order to keep them
from being destroyed by coyotes, which
make tho nights hideous by their howls
when collected in great numbers on the
plains. One Is still very forcibly reminded
of the "Great American Desert" in cross
ing this stretch of country.
Thn city of Pueblo is located on the
banks of tho Arkansas river a few miles
east of tho first rango of the Rockies, and
is fast becoming Jho greatest iron mnnu
facturing centre of tho West. It Is not
only a very Important Iron manufacturing
point but millions of tons of gold, silver,
lead, copper zinc and nil tho precious
metal ores taken from tho Immense treas
lire vaults of the Rocky Mountnlns, aro
hero smelted and reduced to bullion,
ready for shipment to tho markets of the
world. After leavlug Pueblo wo pass
along the Arkansas river through flno
nrches a distance of 40 miles when wo
reach Canon City, located at tho base of
tho Saugre do Crlsto rango of Mountains,
and also at the mouth of tho Grand Canon
or Royal George of the Arkansas. This
place Is beautifully located, aud is sur.
rounded by grand scenery. Tho cllmnto
here Is excellent and Is sought by many
people from tho different States of tho
East for health. Many nnlvo here In tho
different stages of consumption, and with
proper caro Iu bathing In and drinking of
tho mineral spring water located here, oro
greutly benefited and In many instances en
tirely cured. The Colorudo Stato penlten
tlary and Military School are located hero
aud the place possesses lino streets, fine
business blocks and residences, good
churches and schools, nnd is altogether u
very pleasant placu to live.
After leaving Canon City by the Denver
and Rio Grando Railway wu pass through
tlio Royal Ueorgo on our way to Salida,
which Is reached utter a ride of 50 mites,
Tho Royal Qeorgo spoken of Is ono of the
grandest canons In all tho Rocky Mountain
ranges. Its walls are almost perpendlcu

where are located the celebrated Wellsvlllo
Hot Springs. Tho water Issues from, tho

been erected over the springs for the ac

The town ot Salida is located near the
junction of tho Southfott of thu Arkansas
with thu main Btrenm In ono of tho most
beautiful valleys Iu ull this reeky region.
Tho town was first laid out In May, 18 80,
dining tho great Lcadvlllo mining excite
ment nnd has slnco grown steadily until it
has reached n population ot about 4,000
souls. Tho town boasts two newspapers,
ono dally nnd ono scml-wcckly, two flno
business streets with many largo and well
stocked stores of merchandise common to
mlhtng and agricultural countries. There
nro five church organizations with two
good church buildings, ono Academy and
one of tho finest public school buildings la
tho Statu. Tho school population numbers
something over 400. Tho town Is well
supplied with water by a system ot water
works. Telephone and telegraph wires
stretch In all directions from tho business
centres. Tho cllmnto ot this placo Is un
excelled In tho West, being never excess.
vely hot In tho Summer time owing to its
dgh altitude, which Is 7,200 feet nbovc tho
level of the sea, and the nearness to the
great Continental Divide or main rango of
tho Rocky Mountains upon which great
masses of snow can bo seen all tho year
round, and it is novcr very cold hero on
account of tho place being surrounded by
mountains which protect it from tlio cold
wintry storms. Thcro Is also very littlo
snowfall hero as tho storms follow tho
mountain chains around us. The scenery
is exceedingly grand, and no finer field for
an artist can bo found anywhere. Tho
mountains near town nro low and covered
with pine trees, and In the background
on the south nnd west rlso tho snow.cnp-
ped mountains high Into tho heavens,
piercing tho clouds as they pass by. Tho
writer has stood basking In tho suusklno
on tho summits of high peaks, whllo
prospecting for tho precious metals, when
a violent storm would be raging beneath
him. It Is truly a wonderful sight to look
down upon tho dark clouds and sco tho
lightning flash and hear the thunder roll
beneath. A rainbow, when seen from
above tho clouds, Is perfectly round like n
ring, and Is a grand sight to behold.
Among the most prominent nnd highest
peaks in plain view from this placo arc
Mt. Shavano, Mt. Princeton, Mt. Actual,
Mt. Monumental, Cochctopa Dome, Buf
falo Peak and Mt. Ouray, which bears tho
name of the great cnlcf of the Uto trlbo of
Indians, who but three years ago pitched
their tents under the shadow of this great
rcak. The altitudes of these peaks do not
vary much from 14,800 feet. Timber line,
or the height at which timber grows on tho
sides of mountains, Is 11,600 feet abovo the
level of the sea. While climbing up tho
mountain side the trees, which nrc prin
cipally spruce and fir, become less tall, un
til timber line Is reached, where they have
no trunks nt all, the branches apparently
spring from the roots nnd crawl over the
ground like thu dewberry vines In Penn
sylvania. I have already taken up more spaco than
I Intended to, but ns tho Columbian Is
read by many farmers I wish to tell them
something nbout farming In Colorado.
Colorado now produces more wheat and
potatoes than she consumes, but imports
thousands of dollars' worth of butter, eggs,
cheese and corn every year. Corn cannot
be grown to any extent, as tho nights arc
too cold. Before plowing the ground It
must first be thoroughly wet by n system
of Irrigation, which Is dono by conveying
the water through open ditches from the
mountain streams through tho farms. It
is common for companies to form and
build main ditches through tho farming
countries and sell tho water to the farmers
by guagc at a certain rnte per inch, which
amounts to nbout $1.00 per acre per sea
son. The water Is turned over the fields
at intervals by cutting the bank and plac
ing a dam across the ditch, thus conduct
ing the water over the ground by tho uso
of hoes and shovels. Immense crops, and
of flno quality, are thus grown.
Regretting that I havo taken up so much
of your valuable space I will postpono a
further account until some future time.

On every hand we see evidences that
winter is breaking up, nnd will soon have
to yield to the advancing spring. Ii is a
most important question amongst sclenti
tic men what causes the general feeling
of debility and lassitude so prevalent In
this region. While somo regard it as the
result of confinement and inaction, others
supposo it to bo caused by tho decay ot
vegetable and animal dtibris which has ac.
cumulated during tho winter. What Is es.
peclally needed at this time, however, is
something to overcome theso influences.
