A Distinguished. Tourist's Opinion of
A number of distinguished passen
gers on tho westbound train that was
sidetracked hero fur a few hours Tues
day strolled into tho ofiico of the great
est weekly paper in tho southwest.
They were registered as follows: Gen.
W. L. Barnum, of Chicago, who is a
prominent banker and insurance man
in the City of Wind and steeplechase
buildings; E. Ererman, of Lancashiir,
Pa.; J. T. Dougine, mining expert, of

Several of the gentleman, including
Gen. Barnum and Messrs Dotigino and
Evertnaii, were en routo to Kingman,
which town will be their headquarters
during tho examination of some min

Gen. Barnum is tho owner of the Bun

is interested in several other valuable
mines, whilo Mr. Dougine, who is rec
ognized as a mining expert of superior
ability, was judge of the department of
mines and mining at the Columbian ex
position. Time didn't seem to hang heavy on
tho hands of tho Chicago contingent,
which was composed of as jolly a party
of young-old men as one would moot
in a year's travel. Mr. Dougine, the
humorist of the company, apparently
manages to extract a fair measure of
oujoymeiil from this trausitory exist

whoso smile is contagious and whose
constant flow of wit is calculated to

The chain gang which was ordured
inaugurated by the council somo time
ngo, becamo an established fact last
Saturday. On the day previous a hobo
who becamo too persistent in his en
deavor to secure tho price of a meal,
wassontenced by Judge Prime to tickle
the mud with a hoe for tho period of
(We days. He was assigned to work in
front of The SuNoffico and Harry Hox
wortii was appointed to see that tho
sentence was dulj executed. The fel
low worked all right and when seveinl
people advised him to light out while
Mr. lloxworth was busy, ho scorned

and he'll blow my cverlastin' head off.
Not mueheel I'm no fool, even if my
whiskers does need amputation."
After the day's work was finished he
was taken into a restaurant for supper.
When he had eaten everything in right
lie sneaked out tho rear way and eloped
with himself. At last accounts ho was
still hot-footing. The chain gang is a
vision again and the mud continues to
hold full. sway in the streets.
The Moon lllushed.
The moon lost her accustomed pallor
for a brief period Sunday night, in
order to fill an engagement nt the
eclipsing business. Tho walking to
the Lowell observatory is not very
good at present, but about fifteen
people climbed the hill and, through
tho courtesy of Mr. Douglass, viowed
tho eclipse through the big telescope.
Tho most observable feature of this
eclipse, from an astronomical point of
view, was the variety of colors that
overspread the faco of the lunar body
during the evening. The predomi
nant color was of a coppor red. The
tints were due at the beginning to the
atmospheric conditions in our longi.
tilde and at the close to some longitude
over Europe or Asia. Tho next
eclipse occurs in September.
Don't Put It Off.
Tho necessity of a spriug medicine
is universally admitted. This is tiio
best timo of year In which to purify
the blood, to restore tho lost appotite.
and to build up tho entire system, ns
tho body is now peculiarly susceptible
to benefit from medicine. The great
popularity attained by Hood's Sarsa
parilla. owing to its real merit and its
romark'ablo success, lias established it
as the very best medicine to lake tn the
spring. It cures scrofula, salt rheum,
nnd all humors, biliousness, dyspepsia,
headache, kidney and liver complaints,
catarrh, nnd all affections caused or
promoted by low state of the system
or impure blood. Don't put it off,
but lake Hood's Sarsaparilla now. It
will do you good.

The I'nsslDK Show.
A enr fillrd with nssurtcd Arizona
Indians was nttaclied to tho easlbmind
train Saturday night. They have Decn
specially engaged to look fierce tor
one consecutive summer with Barnum
& Bailey's "greatest show on earth."
They can look real lierco when occa
sion demands, and when their special
simker car stopped here there was
occasion enough to incite an Indian
outbreak. Several impudent young
fellows "rubber-neeked" the red peo
ple shamefully, doQlr.g their headgear
in mock courtesy, throwing kisses at
tho bronzed females nnd indulging in
other unseemly demonstrations of
affection. It was a tough-looking out
fit, embracing representatives of both
the Wallnpai aud Mohave tribes.
W. J. Rouse, tho agent of tho show,
has contracted for thirty-six Indians,
and every tribe in the territory will
ho represented. The farewell sceno at
Kingman is said to have been very
affecting. Tho relatives of tho depart
ing Indians assembled at the depot to
see them off. ihe gieat chief told
them always to be good, and as tho
train moved out the tracks wo e al'
most deluged with tiara.
There wcro somo notables among
these livinsr picture, tho most nromi
nent of whom were Smoke Stack, who
is 6 feet 8 inches in height, and his
brother, n few inches shorter; Wallnpai
Charley, and Captain Cnssouln, chief
of tho bupais, who was accompanied hy
his beautiful dark brown niece. It is
whispered in tho socioty circles of her
til lie that Miss Nightwiud will set her
cap for a strolling count or juko when
the show crosses tho oecan.

Tho North and South Road.
The Sun is pleased to state that suf
ficient monev has bee.x raised bv sub
scription in Flagstaff to make the pre
liminary survey of the Dnrango, Fiag
gtatf & San Diego railroad from tho
points of departure, on the mineral belt
to Jerome through tho Verde valley.
The original intention was to commence
the survey from this end of tho line,
but the snow on tho plateau renders
this purpose difficult just now. whereas
the conditions in the valley aro so dif
ferent and favorable that the survey
can be commenced at the south end as
well now as at any season of tho year.
It can, in fact, bo completed through
Jack's canyon or Beaver Creek canyon
up the rim onto tho plateau, and by
the timo that is done the snow will
have so melted that the engineers can
continue the work without interrup
tion all the way to Flngtaff. This
course is certainly tho wisest and best,
as it will save considerable, time, and
every week now is of great valmi to
the country and is of importance look
ing to tho success of tho on'erpriso.
Tub Sun bows to' that line of ajtion,
believing that personal cons'deration
should yield to public necessities and
general good. Whatever is good for
the general public is certainly good for
every individual member of the public
