Thero nre two great pyramid
houses, one Ave and the other seven
stories hiKh, occupied by the entire
tribe, lumiberiiiR more than 400
souls. These two pueblo structures
are considered the most perfect ex
amples of early Indian architecture.
Although known to have been ocru-
uled continuously for more than 600
years, they show not the slightest
sign of decay, but on the contrary,
are In a Derfect state of preservation.
The Indians who have lived here
for eenerations are simple. Quiet, and
peaceable, and In a small way, tillers
of the soil. Like all aborigines, they

posed to rejoice In the happy con

The Indian maiden Is not prone
to rush into beauty contest, occa
slonallv. however, a real beauty Is
found among the Taos women. It Is
well known that all savages are

In the plaza stands a pine tree

a cross piece near the top dangles
a live sheep. Besides the sheep a
garland of such fruit and vegetables

Fifty other runners to contest with

BUSY TIMES AT
Camp Is Seeing Busiest Days
in Its Entire
Orogrande. X. M., Aug. 12. The
week has, perhaps, been the most
active ever witnessed In this camp.
The smelter management is working
steadily on Its sampler and has It all
but complete. Several carpenters and
ether Fpecial workmen are busy put
ting th Mulshing touches to the var
ious parts of the smelter. Special
lire protection Is being installed with
hose hangers and hose all ready for
connection. The railroad track along
the ore bins Is being laid, the assay
office Is being entirely remodeled
and everything from one end to the
other put In llrst class working con
dition. I'p among the mining properties
the work Is being pushed as never
before. The Monte Carlo people are
putting up a number of buildings In
cluding a boarding house, office and
shop. A dozen or more men are
now at work and the new shaft wm
be pushed as rapidly as men can do
It. A party of stockholders and oth
ers Interested In this property came
In last evening and have been out
looking over the property.
Mr. Blair of the Cuprite, also has
a party of Investors here and Is
showing them over the camp and
the Cuprite In particular. This prop
erty seems to hold Its own and Is
looking better each day.
The Turquoise company Is putting
out the finest body ot ore this week
In Its history and it now looks as
though it had a good thing sure.
The Electric company has Just re
ceived word that Its car of placer
machinery from Joplln. Mo., has
been shipped and as soon as It ar
rives the Electric will be as .busy as
a hornet In summer time.
An unusual number of visitors
were seen In the camp the past few
days and the Sacramento hotel seems
to be doing the business of Its short
history. The merchants and business
men about town, too, are beginning
to step lively and are smiling out of
the corners of their eyes.
The best posted mining men In the
camp are beginning to get In shape
to do business and advise all of their
friends to get In the band wagon
while there is yet time.
The social life of the camp Is Just
at this time at low ebb. It's too hot
for outings, picnics or lawn parties
and besides a number of the 400 are
nut of town spending their vacations
In the north and east
Mr. and Mrs. Crouch have Just
sold their home cottage and have
taken up their temporary quarters
In one of the cottages on the Boule
vard. The family, including Mr. and
Mrs. Crouch and Miss Myrtle expect
to leave for Los Angeles in about
thirty days, where they will make
their future home.
The past week has been the warm
est period of the season and at the
present time there seems no Imme
diate prospect for a cold wave.
AT SILVER CITY
Silver City, N. M., August 12.
(Special) It Is understood that the

to arrange for considerable more

Belen, X. M., has rented two largo
store rooms In this city and within
the next few days will open up a
general merchandise business.

Troubles of the Stomach, Heart or
Kidneys are merely symptoms of a

common error of treating symptoms
nly. Symptom treatment Is treating
the result of your ailment, and not
the cause. Weak Stomach nerves
the Inside nerves mean Stomach
weakness, always. And the Heart,
and Kidneys as well, have their con

these nerves, and you Inevitably have
weak vital organs. Here la where

fame. No other remedy even claims
to treat the "inside nerves." Also
