his own tast-es and, as an article of food,I have yet to fjnd any game equal to thePheasant. It is very like quail but with thegreat advantage of good size. Claims that Pheasants destroy younggrouse I believe to be contrary to fact and spiteful, since the two species donot frequent the same covers, and I have had much experience with bothduring the breeding season. PRAIRIE SHARP-TAILED GROUSE {Pedioecetes phasianellus campes-tris). The typical Sharp-tail is found from Central Alaska and BritishColiunbia east to Ontario and western Ungava; the Colmnbian Sharp-tailinhabits the region from northeastern Cahfornia and Colorado north toAlberta; and the present variety occurs from Illinois and Kansas north toManitoba. The three varieties differ only slightly in the tone of coloring,and even more slightly in size, averaging on 16 in. in length. UnlikePrairie Chickens, these birds do not thrive on cultivated land, but advanceahead of the settlers and make their homes in ijiore remote country.

Denver – Civic Center: Colorado State Capitol
University of Colorado
Image by wallyg
The Colorado State Capitol Building, at 200 East Colfax Avenue, first opened for use in 1894. Designed by architect Elijah E. Myers, the four-story cruciform building, with four similar elevations, is constructed of Colorado gray granite from Gunnison County. The 24-carat golf-leaf covered dome, which rises 150-feet high commemorating the Colorado Gold Rush, was added in 1908.

The interior uses copious amounts of Colorado Rose Onyx, a rare rose marble from a quarry near Beulah, Colorado. White Yule Marble from the quarries near Marble, Colorado was also used for the floors. Important interior spaces include the rotunda with its murals by local artist Allen Tupper True, the House and Senate chambers, and the old Supreme Court chamber. Many of the windows are stained glass, depicting people or events related to the history of Colorado. The halls are decorated with portraits of every president of the United States.

The official elevation of Denver is measured outside the west entrance to the building, where the fifteenth step is engraved with the words "One Mile Above Sea Level." A second mile high marker was set in the 18th step in 1869 when Colorado State University students resurveyed the elevation. In 2003, a more accurate measurement was made with modern means, and the 13th step was identified as being one mile high, where a 3rd marker was installed.
