C---. In "Coming, Aphrodite!" painter Don Hedger is said to have studied with a master in southern France. His mentor may have been Paul CéAnne, the French painter born at Aix-en-Provence in 1839 and died there in 1906. During most of his life he lived alternately in Paris and in southern France, chiefly at Aix, where he worked out his ideas with great care. He is considered to be one of the greatest innovative artists. S: Com3, 6

CACHE-À-LA-POUDRE. In Death Comes for the Archbishop, Father Vaillant visits this town in his annual rounds of Colorado mountain settlements. Although such a town no longer exists, there is a river in the vicinity with many towns and settlements along its banks, and it is likely that Vaillant's prototype, Father Joseph Machebeuf (q.v.), visited there. The river is an easterly branch of the South Platte that begins in the Front Ranch in Larimer County, Colorado, and flows southeast to join the South Platte near Greeley. The following story accounts for the town's unusual name: In November 1836, a large party of trappers and employees of the American Fur Company camped near what is now Bellevue. They were traveling from St. Louis to Green River, Wyoming, with a heavily loaded wagon train. During the night, a severe snowstorm set in and it continued for several days, covering the ground so deeply that it was necessary to lighten the wagons before the caravan could proceed. A deep pit was dug near the camp, and all that could be spared from each wagon was stored in it. The pit was covered and brush was burned on it to make it look like an ordinary campsite. The wagon train proceeded and later returned to recover the hidden supplies, which included several hundred pounds of powder. From this incident came the name Cache-à-la-Poudre (powder cache). N: DCIX, 5

CACHE CREEK. In Death Comes for the Archbishop, Father Vaillant visits Cache Creek in Chaffee County, Colorado. The town sprang up in 1880 after gold was discovered on the creek that gave the settlement its name, and for many years Cache Creek was a mining camp and supply town. Once boasting a population of three thousand, it became a ghost town. N: DCIX, 5
