PANORAMAS. Pi » ke u £ ea T* J . The " arrow gorge is said to be the pathway down which the Indians brought their sick and infirm out to the healing springs at the base of the peak. 8 T ^. e t r ^l ck winds around the precipitous sides of the gulch over a roadbed blasted out of solid rock. Below, hundreds of feet are the little stream and wagon road over which millions of dollars of treasure was brought from Leadville in the early days This was the famous resort of stage robbers and gold dust looters The camera has caught all the windings and twists of the tortuous road. From the inky blackness of tunnels to the dizzy height of a spider-like bridge swung up against the rock, the eye passes up the steep mountain and into the depths of the gulch. Suddenly after the trip of three miles, the plains burst into view. Manitou lies at the feet of the traveler. Colorado Springs is seen in the hazy distance, and the smoke of another train headed up the hill is plainly seen. S. P. 506. WHERE GOLDEN BARS ARE Price, $7.30. CAST. Approximate Length, 60 feet. Panoramic view of Grant smelter at Denver, where millions of dollars' worth of gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc are separated each year. This picture gives a panoramic view of this busy place. First, the furnaces and the men dipping out bullion, other men are filling slag pots and hauling them away. A car carrying great chunks of yellow metal ascends a sharp incline. A horse pulling a big slag mold slowly drags the immense weight to dump, where it is cast over the brink in fiery stream. S. P. 507. FUN IN THE GLENWOOD SPRINGS Price, $15.00. POOL. Approximate Length, 125 feet. Remarkably interesting views of the largest hot water pool in the world. Men and women are swimming, jumping, diving and walking on the banks. A toboggan slide and spring-board fur- nished quite lively bits of stirring motion. Some of the girls slide down the chute and cut up queer antics as they strike the water. Nothing objectionable to any audience. Picture is of considerable interest from the fact that two multi-millionaire railroad mag- nates appear very prominently in the foreground and add much to the picture by starting "something doing'" just at the right time. Glenwood Springs, Col., is one of the most famous and highest class resorts in the world, having a bath-house costing over $150,000. S. P. 514. LAVA SLIDES IN RED CANYON. Price, $8.40. Approximate Length, 70 feet. Panoramic view of a most interesting portion of this beautiful gorge on the Colorado Midland Railway. This picture was taken from a car placed ahead of the two engines on a regular express train, which was pushed around the sharp curves at sixty miles an hour. The scenery seems to spring right at the audience and causes everybody to hold their breath to keep the heart from beating in the excitement. On the left of the scene are the lava slides, great masses of broken rock piled down the side of the mountain. Great striking examples of the Rockies are seen in the background. The Frying Pan river, with millions of trout, rushes by on the right. The track twists and curves and seems to run directly into the mountain, but of course bends at the right time, and the camera catches a new and even more beautiful view. To show a set of moving pictures of Colorado without having some of Granite can- yon would be a very serious mistake, indeed. Never before has it been possible to get them, on account of the expense involved. 246
