.SATURDAY JU.VE '25 ltl.
A story i going the rounds about
a young Russian who can repf.it
any amount of poetry but who is in
all other respects a hopeless idiot.
That's nothing. There are scores of
hopeless idiots in this country who
do nothing but write poetry.
Bishop Wicks of New York was
in the city Friday and Saturday last
with live Cheyenne boys that hV had
been educating. They were real
gentlemanly appearing young men
and will do good service as civiliz-
ing agents among their people.
Hugh the youngest son of U. A.
Todd at Polecat ranch I. T. was
thrown from a pony yesterday morn-
ing and seriously hurt. Di Hume
went down to the ranch last evening
to attend to the injuries of the little
fellow which we liope are not as se-
rious as reported. Commercial.
The St. Joe News says : "The day
after J3 unlet to was here one of the
foremen in a St. Joseph newspaper
ollice received a piece of manuscript
in the 'copy' which read as follows :
Yesterday morning at 1 o'clock p.
m. a man named Jone.- or Smith
committed arsenic by swallowing a
doe of suicide lie has a seat in
the hole of his breeches and the ver-
dict of the inquest returned a jury
that the deceased came to the fact
of his death this accordance. He left
a child and six little wives to lament
the end of his unfortunate loss."
The inhabitants of iho rum dia--trfls"
of Ohio betray' their New En-
gland origin in many ways but in
no way so unmistakably as in their
tendency to exalt the importance of
literary culture. Two ladies from
the vicinity of Cleveland were re-
cently discussing literature in the
dining room of a Washington hotel.
First lady " Above all modern nov-
elists I admire George Eliot. Do
you like him?" Second lady -"Do 1
like him? T think he's just grand
massive superb!" First lady
"So do I. And which of his
novels is your favorite? Second lady
(reflecting) ''Well I think I prefer
Daniel Veranda.' "

.My dear friend
John D. Miles. -I have often
(bought I would like to write to you
but I have much to .do in the shop
and at night 1 am tired and do not
feel like writing. Now X will try and
tell you about myself. I am" very
glad that 1. have to work and when
you want a wagon 1 think I can
make it for you. When I have learn-
ed to work well and can talk En-
glish too 1 will gohoniSand be with
you again. Every day and everv
night 1 ask God to help me to be a
good young man. Bull Thunder
wrote me to try hard to do right.
Tell him that J try very hard to do
what he said and I always remem-
ber him. Jle wrote me 'April !23d
and asked me to make him a wag-
on and! will try and remember to
make him one when 1 go home. I
hope all are well in camp. I go to
the night hchooi and try hard to
learn. I liku to be in the night
school. We read and study arith-
metic and write. From your friend
Mr. Taylor Maudlin once a cit-
izen of Denver and who still owns
a farm a little above the city en
Cherry creek has the largest pasture
field in the world. Jt is partly in
New Mexico and partly in Texas and
is bounded on one side by the Indian
Territory and on another by the state
of Colorado. It occupies that space
of ground known as no man's land
being a space of country unsur--veyeel
lying between these States
and Territories. Mr. Maudlin's pos-
sessions will cover an area of country
nearly as large as the State of Con-
necticut and and fully equal to New
Jersev. Forty miles of it has a
natural perpendicular rock fence
yet it will require two hundred
miles of wire to entirely enclose it
Mr. Maudlin thinks he willjbc able
to put up in the summer time a
thousand tons of wild oats and twice
as much of hay. II is intention is
to graze 100000 head of cattle on
this pasture summer and winter.
Dakota can boast of the largest
wheat field in the world California
of the largest improved farm and
Australia of the largest fruit orchard
but they could all be put in Mr.
Maudlin's pasture and not encum-
ber it much either. Denver Republican.
