City OF MEXICO, Aug. ?l.? The anniver
.... of tho full of the Aztec empire in 1521,
Augast 10, was duly honored here nt the
capital lh:a year by unveiling a line statue
of the last end most heroic of all the Aztec
rulers. At an early hour tho mounted and
fool guards of the city, with several coin pa*
nies of soldiers, were marched out in their
holiday costumes to the sound of hands of
music aud under the most beautiful banners
the country could produce. It was indeed
a gay Ecene, with a strong; savoring of mod?
ern military display by the side of a semi
I barbaric splendor handed down from the
days of the Aztec, rulers. At (he "Segunda
Oloriota" in tho "Pa6eo de la Keforma," or
tho second circle of tho reform drive, the
statue is situated. From here the sceue of
;l!r mixed and advancing hosts made a pic
I lure never to be seen but onco and never to
be forgotten. The trumpeters of the Mexi?
can army rode ahead, mounted on black
horses. The blast of a hundred bugles and
waving of many banners, with the bright re
Qection of swords, bristling bayonets, and
polished helmets, epaulettes, buttons, buck
el and badges made a picture which for
military display can hardly be surpassed on
this continent. Next came (he President
iu a close carriage drawn by two prancing
dapplo-gray horses with two livery men in
attendance, and amounted body-guard rode
before, behind and on either side. The
President is a fast driver and his advance
surrounded by his guards all coming io a
gallop reminded us of n picture we once
saw representing the Czar flying before the
nihilists. Just bebind bis curriage followed
tho ministers of state uud members of his
cabinet. On the arrival of theparty a salute
of twenty guns was fired and the hands
played the national hymn of Mexico, amid
the "Vivas Mexico" of perhaps fifty thou?
sand people. On leaving the carriage the
President and party were escorted to a large
rostrum covered with canvas and provided
with paintings on the back ground repre?
senting the twin mountains of Myer Blanco
and the volcano of Popocatepetl besides the
chief gods of the Aztecs. In the locality there
many beautiful llorr.1 arches with large
columns und minarets with litttle spires,
the whole of which was completely hid with
flowers from the ground to the crowning
points of the tower. Then the entire paseo
leading to the old castio of Chepultepec
was hung with flags, banners and lined on
eitber side with guards and adorned with
triu aplia! arches The ceremonies at the statue
consisted of speeches in Spanish and tho ancient
language of the Aztecs, besides vocal music by a
choir of small Indian girls aud music by more
than a dozen ditleront bauds. At tho hour ap
i the 1'rasideut came .'orward and as?
cended the base of the monument, wticre a
cord, terminating with a largo tin
d isscl, swung from the top of tho statue.
This was bo arranged with snaps that united
the opening of tho shoot that covered the
stal no, so that when pulled by Mr. Diaz the entire
fa teningswero unt.ed aud the veil fell to the
ground amidst the risiug shout of the multitude,
the combined music of all the bands, choirs,
trumpets and the hclchingsouud of all thecaunou
pi ent. The Aztecs present throw up their som
bren waved their blankets in tho air and
cheered as oiiC Indian iu tho ancient language of
their last king. This contiuuod for a few mo
meats, when tue President aud party retired, and
I tea around tho statue was cleared, aud a
Long procession of Indians tiled by tho statue,
each [placing a wreath or bunch of flowers on tho
base and niches of the monument until tho base,
side and all projections wero entirely buried with
flowers, and in places moro than a foot deep. This
procession, iu a very impressivo mauncr, repre?
sented the Aztecs of to-day and their customs
of long ago. They were clothed in blankets and
wore Bandals and baggy breeches, and a few wero
attired in leather suits, fringed with cloth and
adornod with dark embroidery down the side
and around tl c cuffs and collars. They carried
bannors, dags of Mexico aud a long cano stock,
wit ? feathers, fans and red haudkerchiefs tied to
the top. Others had large red blankets on and
were provided with string and wind instruments,
upon which they played many pieces of music
that would have been a credit to a far moro cul?
The statue is nearly fifty feet high, with a base
about thirty feet square. On either side there
arc bronze reliefs, one of which represents the
surrender of the king to Cortes: the other tho
: irturo by a slow fire to make him tell tho hiding
place of his treasures. Besides these tboro aro
images of the war gods of tho Aztecs and speci?
mens of their picture-writing and coats of armor
used by the ancicut king and tho defenders of
their capital. The whole is crowned by a life
size statue of the king, drossed in his war cos?
tume, with a long spear which he is in tho act of
hnriing at the enemy. In all it is a lino work of
art. and is about all that now icminds tho Aztecs
of to-day of their anciont kingdom, and its last
and most heroic ruler, who governed a nation
moro powerful and extensive than has since ex?
isted in the land of tho Aztecs. Kamhler.

The company is incorporated under the laws of West Virginia, and
the stock is non-assessable, and c trries with it no personal liability :<?
The Gold Mining Company (location. Music Mountains, A. T.) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
possibilities have never been exceeded. Every share should double in
value within a year, and they may quadruple, as they are based on
property that would ordinarily have been capitalized ten (10) times ;i>
great on account of its known richness and promise.
The shares are made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for five shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.
Every dollar of earnings will go to the stockholders in dividends, as
there is nothing else that they can be used for.
A Wisewell mill, capacity 20 tons per day, with powerful machinery,
has been purchased and will be on the ground ready for erection at the
mine within the next thirty days
The solid basis upon which the company is founded and the practical
proofs of the richness of the mine have already secured the confidence
of the public, and the stock has steadily advanced in selling value.
Within the last few days bona fide sales have been made at par.
There is no better stock on the market for a permanent investment.
