Dear Miner. Our party, Ed. Silsbec,

Prescott in the forenoon of Thursday, De

new headquarter residences and several
other buildings that would do credit to any

Our vehicle, which had done good service
as an A. & N. M. express coach, was soon
whirled around a point of mountain, by
four of Hathaway's best horses, shutting us
out of view of Whipple, Prescott, 3Iiller
Valley, and the great mountains around
Prescott. Wo were now fully on our way
and soon passed the old quartz ledge, near
which Indians used to waylay people in the
early days. It was here they attacked J.
C. Lcnnon, and "Sugar Foot Jack," who
saved their lives by makinjr sood use of
their legs. A little way beyond, on a side
hill, Jerome Calkins, Piatt and others were
The spring at which old prospectors and
miners used to moisten their lips after a
trip from Big Bug or Lynx Creeks is still
in the old place; but. Spirit of Progress, near
to it is the slaughter-house of 0. T. Rogers
& Co.j butchers of Prescott. While gazing
upon it, memories of old rushed to our
brain; we thought of our trips by it in 1864,
'65 and 'CO; sometimes alouc; again with
one or two companions; we recollected how,
"while kneeling down to take a drink " we i
used to keep one eye on the water, the
other on the brush, for fear some Indian
might catch us with loth eyes shut. Hap
py, "brave old days," gone, gone, never,
we hope, to return.
Our road' soon tunfed to the cast, over
pretty high hills, down which our carriage
rolled ith great speed. Behind us lay that
most beautiful of mountains Granite; on
our right, the hills and mountains of Lyax
Creek and Big Bug, where hardy miners
were at work, robbing rock and gravel of
their treasures. Wc passed the Bulwhacker
or Salvador mine and saw two men at work
on the windlass, hoisting the rich goltl ore
for which the mine is famous.
Lynx Creek was the next place of inter
est that appeared to us. It came ncarbeinjr
our final stopping place on Earth, for, as
our carriage was rolling down the steep do
clivity, on the Prescott side of the Creek, all
hands and the driver became somewhat
alarmed at its rapid motion. Tho person
whose duty it was to see that everything
was in order, previous to starting, had neg
lected to put leathers on tho breaks, and
there we were, taking a real old Horace
Greeley ride. The driver, Charley Young,
did everything that man could have doae to
save the "outfit," and did so at the peril of
his own life. He guided horses and vehi
cle over aTery narrow bridge and, seeing a
deep, rocky and dangerous chasm before
him, (a leap into which would have been
fatal to men and animals), a high ledge of
hard rock on tho left, (a bump against
which would have smashed passengers.

down on the break like unto a hero. Dobbs,
whose arms and hands were lonir Ago shat
tered and crippled by Apache bullets, was
unable to render the driver any assistance
and would have jumped off the coach had it
not been for fear Charley would have fol
lowed his example, in which case, Prescott
would have three more widows, and some
old bachelars would have cause for rejoicing.
Wc. of course, commend him for his
bravery and foresight. A government am
bulance, containing Dr. Magrudcr, the De
partment Medical Director, other officers and
D. C. Thorne, of Prescott, was quite near
us during our peril. These gentlemen were
not slow in coming to our assistance, and
appeared well pleased upon learning that
nobody was scriouslyvyixfcn. One horse
was thrown down i 2:m'Iamcd.
Sam, a sonjf the Flowery kingdom, who
kejptfra'station at Lynn creek, furnished
the necessary material for making repairs;
we thanked him, clambered up a steep hill
and were again rattling "over the hills and
far away." The "boys" congratulated one
another upon their lucky cacape and saw in
it an omen of capital success.
Spaulding's Station, in Woolsey's Valley,,
was soon reached. Here we met W. S.
Head, who was on his way from Verde to
Prescott and Tucson. He very wildly list
ened to the talc we did unfold, and very
politely asked us to revive business in the
Station, a proposition to which we lent wil
ling ears. This Station struck us as being
an excellent one.
Wc followed the old road to Agua Fria
Valley, missed every farm save Dickson's
and made a dry camp on Big Bug. Judge
E. W. Wells was found early next morning
at his place, one-half mile below our camp;
animals were watered, hitched up, and the
'procession'' started south. On, on, we
went, over a horrible road, until Swilling s
ranch was reached, where we "greased" and
started for New River Station, at which
place wc arrived even with night.
Wc saw, on the way, a great many new
houses, thousands of horses, cattle, sheep
and other domestic animals and hist, but
not least, a great many people. This sec
tion is fast settling up, and is amply provi
ded with grazing, mining and other resour
Judge Wells and his son Frank have a
fine stock ranch and some good farming
land. The old- gentleman spoke of the

We took the old mesa road to Black Can
yon, and found it, like Jordan, "a hard road
to travel." Those who came by the upper,
or military road, say it is better.
swilling has a nice place on the Ainta
Frin, almost opposite the mouth of Black
Canyon Creek. He was not at home, but
his wife, children, and a nephew recently
from the States were. He has abundance
of land, water, wood and mining claims
Several tons of rich looking silver and gold
ores, from mines near by, in Bradshaw
mountain, were here sacked, awaiting ship-
and gentlemen, and the exercises were
highly 'interesting and well appreciated.
The programme was followed to the let
ter and everything passed off pleasantly.
The entertainment opened with a Masonic
hymn "Hail Masonry Divine," sung by
Mrs. Burmister, Miss William?, 3Iiss Perry,
Mrs. Bowers, Mr. Seed and Mr. Clark, with
excellent effect. Prayer by Chaplain Gil

assisted by the Marshal, G. W. Curtis. These
ceremonies were intentsting and impressive,
and had a visible effect on the newly in
stalled officers and elicited an earnest inter
est from all who witnessed them. Then
came a Masonic song. Solo and chorus,
beautifully rendered by 3Irs. N. B. Bowers.
Installation of appointed officers, Reading
of a poem by Thomas Cordis. This was a
peculiarly interesting feature and gave the
greatest satisfaction to all. The theme of
the poem is ''Our Patron Saint Divine,"
written by Laurence Greenwood, of Denver
Colorado, and read by Mr. Cordis with great
clearness of enunciation, faultless intona-
tion and in perfect accord with the rules of
rhetorical reading; Music by the choir
Benediction by the Chaplain. At the earnest
request of many who heard the address of
Mr. Butler, as well as some who were una
ble to attend, and who wish to read it, we
have, witli his consent, undertaken to pub
lish it in installments in the daily Mines
during the coming week and on next Friday
to publish it entire in the weekly. The ad
dress has elicited many complimentary re
marks and but for the modesty of its author
wc should have more to sav conceminir it.
Its publication, however, will place it in the
hands of all when it will speak for itself.

name before, probably our readers will re
member it well, George Duncan, who by
the way, is a colored man, and who was to
have been married Wednesday night, didn't
get man led. lie had everything arranged,
rcnt.'d his house, and he and his intended
moved, during the day, the furnituie into it.
A stove was needed, and George started to
get it. While he was away the young lady,
Miss Alice Bulgcr,seizcd upon a lot of cloth-
ing wnicn ueorge nau expended s'jo to
obtain for her, aud lit out. George thought
she had gone to see sonic friend's residence
to prepare herself for the nuptials, and him-
selt did likewise. When night cast her
sable mantle upon the earth, and the flick
ering glare of tallow dips and kerosene
lamps began to shed their lustre upon the
window panos in west Kansas, the friends
of the bride and groom tripped gaily to
ward the church to witness the matrimonial
scene. The church was one blaze of bril
liancy, the coal oil lamps shedding a lus
tre upon all around that was transcendent ly
beautiful. The preacher was there and
many others. Long after the appointed
hour George came and was alone; no blush
ing bride was hanging on his arm. There
was no rustle of highly-starched calico at
his side, his face wore a woe-begone look,
while his under jaw hung down like the ear
of an elephant. When he entered there was
a look of blank amazement depicted upon
the faces of the invited guests, and many of
the female portion cried out in astonish
ment, "Why, Goge, wharam she?" He shook
his head iu sorrow, and faintly murmured,
"Deah frens, she am gone whar, how, or
what to, I dunno, but she am gone for a
fac and she cost me twenty-five dollars.
I'se sorry to hab you all disappointed, but
den I can't help it. I'm triad she's slid.
I would give twentv-five dollars any time
to find out any ladv." The guests adjourn
ed, and George walked out into the dark
ness, a broken-hearted man. About 12
o'clock at night theru came a tapping at
the chamber door of Auntv Duncan, the
wife whom George discarded twenty-three
years ago, and following it came the gentle
voice of George, who plaintively and pit-
cously cried out, "Sofy, Sofy, open de do'.
I's hcah, aud I's a broken-hearted man.
Lcmme in, Sofv, please, or I'll be found
froze on the wild moor." The door didn't
open by any means, but Auntv said. "Look
hcah, George Duncan, you jest git awav
from de do"', or dar will be trouble iu dis
neighborhood puttv soon, you hear mc."
Pinding he was forever shut out, the dis
appointed man left, and no one knows
where he is now. Thus should it ever be
with the man who has shown himself to be
the perfidious wretch that George Duncan

everybody who does love little babies. Ne

if it is healthy and good-natured, and you'r
sure it's yours, it is a bushel of sunshine, no

not be a hopeless case so long as he loves
babies, one at a time. Wc love babies all

Babies were bora to be dirty.
We love babies because they arc babies,
and because their mothers were loveable
and lovely women. Our love for babies is
only bounded by tho number of babies in
the world. Wc alwavs look for babies; we
do, with anxiety and paternal affection ; we
do, indeed we do. We always have sor
rowful feelings for mothers that have no
babies and don't expect any.
Women alwavs look down-hearted who
have no babies, and men who have no
babies always "rumble and drink whiskv.
and stay out nights trying to get music in
their souls; but they can't come it Babies
are babies and nothing can take their place.
Pianos play out, and good living plays out,
unless there is a baby in the house. We
have tried it; wc know, and we say there's
nothing like a baby. Exchange.
