A tall dignified Lookin Man smoking an extra Long Cigar Aud wearing a peculiarly shaped Sealskin Cap walked nervously Back and Orth in the grand Pacific Rotunda Union pious that he was the cynosure of ail eyes. The 10-Carat Diamond that sparkled in his tie was brandishing so Many Spears of Light that 8m Parker thought he must certainly be from darkest Africa. The wearer of that Sparkler was j. M. Daily of Denver Colorado and a Man with a history that would fill an Octavo volume. In conversation with a reporter or. Dally had this to say a i have been for thu years the business partner of a Diamond jo1 Reynolds and it was to attend his funeral that i came Here. The newspaper men have All taken a hand at writing anecdotes of to the one Man of the United states who might have been a successful Jay Gould had he wanted to depart from his self made business rules nut i can Tell one that illustrates the character of the Veteran financier More perfectly to mind than any yet announced. Several years ago Jofs son Blake who subsequently died a ame out to Colorado to a learn some-thing.1 Diamond to brought him up to the mine office Oue Day and gave instructions to see that Blake was informed upon every subject pertaining to mines and mining Etc. Well i a seized up the Young Man and concluded he would never take kindly to mining details. A a a Isnit there some other business that might be More congenial to Blake a i suggested. A a mines Are Good enough for his father a retorted a Diamond a a a but i done to know what to teach him a i replied. A Jim All i ask of you is that you teach Blake that there Are just too cents in $1, Aud it will be time Well spent if it takes you two Well i admitted the logic of the orders but i Felt apprehensive of Powers As financial or. Dally remarked when the subject of superstition was introduced in some inexplicable manner that he was most forcibly reminded of the old saw a when the House is finished the Hearse is at the door a a by a visit to a town not a thousand Miles from Denver where lives a Well known Publio character a Man of immense wealth who recently startled the town by building a Beautiful and costly Stone residence upon the Granite Fence which surrounds the spacious grounds he spent enough Money to almost build another House. But the tall Granite porticos of the portals do not Overlook a Beautiful Bronze Gate such As one might imagine there would be there. The owner has a Gate of rough Pine planks and not for architectural effect either. It looks very much like a makeshift for a door in an unfinished House. The eccentric Rich Man avers that As Long a9 he refrains from finishing that Gate just so Long the Hearse will be kept from before his door. A that is a Sample of the Centennial states superstitions a concluded or. Dally. The first worsted Mill. Eirew Smith quoted in the manufacturer. It is now just too years ago since John Sugden crossed Over from Haworth and settled at Dock Royd. That was an important period in the commercial history of our country for the great discoveries of Hargreaves Wyatt Arkwright Aud others followed by Watt with his improved steam engine were about to effect a Complete revolution in our industries and about that time was Laid the foundation of the Trade which has done so much for that Valley. He referred to the foundation of the earliest worsted Mills and mentioned that the third and fourth we reestablish d at looming a Little Way up the Valley and Newenden about 1792. It might therefore be said that that District had been the very Cradle of the mechanical spinning of worsted. Or. John Hugden employed about a half dozen hand combers and used to a end Bis tops into the hamlets or the farm houses of the District where the Rood wife a shuttle could then be seen merrily flashing through the loom. The manufacturers at that time carried Many of their pieces to the Halifax piece Hall. In the year 1806 a great event took place in that Village by the founding by John hug Den of Providence Mill and he supposed that terror was struck into the hearts of the hand spinners who feared they would lose their occupation by which women could earn shillings Aud Strong girls i shilling 6 Pence per week. Or. 8ugden began with three spinning frames of probably sixty to eighty spindles each and from that time the firm had steadily progressed. Removal notice.
