You May
Spend All the Money
You please on handsome furniture, costly paintings,
statuary and other magnificent ideas, but if you take
away softening influences and charming graces of ap
propriate draperies, the effect of all your collection of
costly beauty would be so diminished as to become
wearisome to the eye aud a positive bore to the refined
or sensitive mind.
Beautiful Draperies Are Not Expensive
This week we are making a practical demonstration of
this iact, aud the practical home maker, housekeeper,
or co zy room or corner furnisher may learn much in a
few minutes spent in our Drapery Department these
days that all the reading and home study of a month
could not impart. The truth is, we are enthusiastic
on the subject of
Popular Priced Draperies
, And upholstering? and offer opportunities to buyers of
;,.,, taste such as are not to be had elsewhere. All the new
n'mfabrics, tone effects aud colorings are seen at their best
in our extensive collection, and our long and success-

He acted immediately and aroused
a number of the neighbors, who, with

no damage. Tho men were undoubted

Cure Where
Rich Bed of Ore found Under Tabor
Opera House Recalls Sad Story
of Former Millionaire.
By Exclusive Wire from Tho Associated Press.
Denver, Oct. 1. A gold mine under
the Tabor Opera House .and the post
office. What a travesty of fate!
Senator Tabor, the man who built
the opera house and gave the govern
ment the land for the federal building,
died in poverty, wrecked by mining
speculations after having made a for
tune In mines.
A man boring a water hole in the
alley between the two buildings struck
ore this morning.
The five-inch pipe that sinks down
into the bowels of the earth has hither
to brought up nothing but sand and
mud, but this noon, to the amazement
of the well men, some pieces of ore,
w 1th big yellow lumps in it, were car
ried to the surface.
There was a flutter of excitement
among tho well-woikers, anl John M.
Mitchell, an old miner, Who Is em
ployed nearby, was summoned and
shown a lot of ore. He critically In
spected the rock and pronounced It the
richest peacock gold.
"There is a paying body of ore right
under this alley and these buildings,"
he exclaimed. "I would not have be
lieved it, but there's mo mistaking the
real stuff. Why, this rock ought to go
n.OOO a ton."
"It seems passing strange that Hor
ace W. Tabor, tho fiist of the great
miners In Colorado, who died after
losing his wealth, should have built
the opera house over a bigger mine
than he ever owned," said one of tho
federal officials."
The well men think that If a shaft
is sunk near the well they ought to
have a small portion of the profits, as
through their efforts tho discovery was
made. It Is astonishing to find a gold
mine in the heart of Denver, but noth
ing is Impossible in a mineral way in
Property owners In tho neighborhood
ate intensely interested In the result of
tho assays, which will determine
whether It Is advisable to sink shafts
In tho neighborhood and actively mine
the earth. Lawyers are being consult
ed regaiding the mining rights of city
property owneis and the possible ex
tent of claims within the corporate
limits of a city.
All sorts of rumors arc flying about,
the well has now reached a depth of
3S0 feet, and has been In rock about
eight feet. This is the second attempt
to sink a well In the alley. Tho first
timo the drill broke at a depth of 500
feet and a new hole had to be started.
Workmen Strike a Deposit of Tine
Ore in That City.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Duluth, Oct. 1. Workmen engaged in
making altoiatlons in the First Na
tional Bank building, at the moat im
portant business corner in Duluth, to
day stiuck a deposit of iron ore under
the boiler room of tho building. Tho
ore assayed sixty-five per cent, metal
lic lion, and it is 3ald to be aa line
as anything ever found In this coun
tiy. Thij vein that was found by tho
workmen was not large, hut it ap
peared to bo an outcropping of a larg
er deposit, and it la impossible to
tell where the bed of oie reaches. It
may extend up and down along tho
most piomlnent business street In
town. It is In such shape that It Is
impossible to tell much about it ex
tent nt piesont without making ex
cavations that the owners of tho
building do not desire to risk at pres
ent. Considerable interest is taken in the
find for the jeason that this point
Is distant eight miles from tho nearest
known lion deposits of the Minnesota
ranges, and tho presence of oto heie
hos never been suspected. If tho de
posit should prove to be extensive, it
tluows tho subjeot of Iron develop
ments wide open, and mining men will
not undoitako to say how great the
deposits of ore under this county may
prove to be,

The Line Will Run from Salt Lake
City to the Const Senator Clark
of Montana, Chief Promoter A
Monopoly Will Be Broken and Vast
Inland Riches Will Be Developed.
tty Exclusive Wlr from The Associated Pre
Chicago, Oct, 1. Senator William A.
Clark, tho many time millionaire of
Montana, Improved "tho shining hour"
yesterday by consummating plans for
the building of the Los Angeles end
Salt Lake City railway. Senator Clnrk
has been staying at the Annex since
Thursday last, ostensibly to consult
with tho Democratic national commit
tee, but ho remained over yosterdiy
purposely to meet nnd consult with
certain Salt Lake City capitalists and
Los Angeles personages, who arrived
here Friday night. Another chief pro
motor Is it. c. Kerens, of St. Louli,
who, as Republican national commit
teeman fiom Missouri, It Just now a
permanent fixture at the Annex.
Senator Clark yesterday admitted the
truth of the story, but said that the
consultation had not determined upon
any finalities and that the facts were
not yet In a state for publication.
Tho now Los Angeles and Salt Lake
City railway absorbs the franchise and
property of the Los Angeles Terminal
company. This provides for the en
trance of the new railway Into tho
southern California metropolis. The
Mormon church, which is the power
behind the throne In Salt Lake, has
practically promised a terminal site in
the Utah capital, and Pioneer square,
a tract of ten acreB In the center of the
city, will be turned over to the rail
way for its stations and freight depols.
Between the termini the whole un
opened southwest will be epatihed. The
Sierra Nevada Will be pierced through
one of its southern passes and the
supremacy of the Southern Pacific rail
way, hitherto unchallenged oh the Pa
cific coast, will be effectually broken,
at least In southern California. The
death of COllls P. Huntington removed
the last obstacle to the success of the
Clark-Kerens syndicate.
Plan Vast Developments.
The construction will require $25,000.
000 in expenditure. But not merely will
tho trend of commerce be changed in
new directions thereby, but tho syndi
cate has in its eye a vast commercial
development. Southern Utah and east
ern Nevada contain coal and the best
iron ore, besides the precious metals.
The region will some day be the Penn
sylvania of the West. Said R. C. Ker
ens lost night:
"We contemplate a second Illinois
steel works there. We mean to make
the iron and steel for the entire Pacific
west. Surveys have revealed the llch
ness of the country through which we
shall pass in the useful metals, and wo
purpose to establish great smelters and
metal works."
Senator Clark has great mine hold
ings In the regions and last winter he
made a journey through Utah and
Nevada especially to inspect them and
to estimate their possibilities.
Tho region Is also one capable of
indefinite development agriculturally.
The Mormons arc largely interested in
the proposed railway, and they are
most highly skilled In the art of irri
gation. It Is their people whom most
largely are expected to avail them
selves of the agricultural expansion the
railway will make possible, and what
they have done for northern and east
ern Utah thev may be expected to do
for the new region.
California, however, will be most Im
mediately affected. The monopoly of
the Southern Pacific will be at nn end,
at least for Los Angeles. That city,
made the terminus of a gieat deml
continental railway system, will more
than ever bo assured of an Immense
commercial future. Despite the fact
that Its port of San Monica Is but an
open toadstcad, Los Angeles will be
bound to become the Pacific outlet for
the southwest, since San Diego, fine as
Is Its harbor, is too far south, just
above tho MexTsan boi der. The federal
government, too, Is improving the aitl
flclal harbor at San Monica by great

upon the proposition tu sell beer to soldiers at
army canteens. That opinion wis not based

upon the habits of our soldiers, I am obliged
to admit that, fiom a prattlcal point of view,
It seems to have accomplished very desirable
results in reducing tho amount of ilrunfcenncss
In the arm) und the disposition on the pait of
the soldiers to leave their stations tor Hie pur
pose of obtaining spirituous liquor.
