Elk Billiard Parlor

E. C. Wigle

Every reasonable person in whatever path of life, must recognize that recreation is indispensable to a healthy and vigorous life. While the capitalist can turn to his club or betake himself to his yacht, the men less blessed with this world's goods have such institutions as that of the Elk Billiard Parlor, located at 206 Linden street. These parlors are very popular and are well conducted. The proprietor, Mr. Wigle, is a Canadian by birth and came to Colorado from Detroit, Mich., and has successfully conducted his present enterprise for over three years. He has seven pool tables and one billiard table, and the manner in which these are patronized demonstrates how popular such a recreation is and how much it is appreciated. Mr. Wigle has the tact to conduct such a place as it ought to be conducted, and by doing so has won the support of the public for his resort.
