rhe I Irefeouian of Jan. 19 contained
a fairly good write-up of Falls City,
by Addison Bennett. Mr Bennett
seems to have been inclined to give
the editor of The News more credit
than said editor claims for himself;
also the pictures were labeled 'Wil-
laniina.' In all other respects y a con
sider the article well worthy o f a
place in any collection of “ Boosts for
High Mountain* of Wyoming.
The highest mountain in Wyo
ming is -Gannett peak, whose ele
vation, according to a chart publish
ed by the United States geological
survey, is 13,785 feet above sea
level. The Grand Teton is a close
second at 13,747 feet, and Fremont
peak is only seventeen feet lower.
There are six additional mountains
higher than 13,000 feet, their ele
vations ranging from 13,007 feet
for Knife Point mountain to 13,600
feet for Mount Helen. But these
are not. all the-.lofty mountains in
the state,.for there are in addition
twenty-one named peaks and about
forty unnamed peaks whose alti
tudes are above 12,000 feet. Wyo
ming has, therefore, some seventy
mountain peaks that rise more than
12,000 feet.above sea level.

he drew at hia pipe to get it started
he looked Joachim full in the face.
Then, just as he was about to go
on, he tapped the violinisPs chest
“ But Paganini was the man,”

Bloemfontein was named after a
robber called Jan Bloem, the son of
a German father and half caste
nother, who wandered about the
wilda of Africa in the eighteenth
century with a following of Hotten
tots and settled on the spot where
Bloemfontein now stands. He lived
by plunder and became one o f the
richest and most powerful captains
of the Hottentots. He named the
place Bloemfontein, aud the name
has remained to this day..—Johan-
