Out In the golden state of Colorado a
prospector sat alone in the shade of a
tree reading a letter. His clothes wet's
in tatters, bis shoes were minus the
principal pnrt of their soles, and of
his felt lint there was little left but
the brim. He had thrown off his hav
ersack and laid it on the grass beside
him. It contained no food, for be laid
eaten the iust morsel that morning for
breakfast. Hut it did contain all the
prospector possessed in the world ten
pounds of gunpowder and a fnngnii.v-
ing glass. The former lie kept to turn
up ground, wherein lie hoped gold might
he hidden, the latter to examine speci
mens of ore.
This was the letter he read:

cure of everything, lie set off to a town

good news to l.ney. The girl laid the
matter before her father, who had
some means, and lie took the first train
for Colorado. Together he and the
prospector bought the properly on
which the discovery had been made,
then went east and organised a com

Such is the origin of the famous "Hot-

Thu true manna ash Is the FraxInns

much handsomer flowers than any oth

some parts of our country the sugar

ash trees are tapped when about ten
years old. A transverse cut Is made
about one third of the circumference of
the tree, a 11 mil her of these transverse
cuts being mfide one above the other.
As many as forty five euts are fre
