TO CAN TOMATOES.
Let them be entirely fresh. Put
scalding water over thom to aid in
removing tho skins. When tho
cans with their covers and scaling
strings are in readiness upon tho
table, tho teakettle is full of boiling
water and tho tomatoes aro all
skinned, wo aro ready to begin tho
canning. Put enough tomatoes in
a porcelain preserving kettle to fill
four cans, add no water, Let them
como to tho boiling point, or let
them all bo woll scalded through.
Fill tho cans with hot water first,
then with tho hot tomatoes, wipe
off moisture from tops with a soft
cloth and pi ess the covers on tightly;
then placo sealing strings in
gruvo around top of can made to
recoivo it! tho heat of the fruit will
melt tho wax and your fruit is
ready for the storing room. Thero
will bo juico left after tho tomatoes
aro canned. Season this and boil
it down for catchup.
Noxt to tomatoes the vegetable
easiest to can is the string bean.
Remove tho tough strings at the
sides and break tho bean into two
or threo pieces. When ready throw
them into boiling water for 10
minutes and can liko tomatoes.
Cut rind of ripo melons into

KEEP AHEAD OF THE WEEDS.
There is only ono economical
way to fight weeds, that is to
keop ahead of them. When thoy
aro just breaking throngh ground
thoy can bo slaughtered with less
labor than at any time. That is
tho time to take them in hand. A
little later and tho work will be
doubled. Too man- overlook this
fact. In many towns five per cent
off is allowed on all taxes paid
a certain date, and men hustle
to pay their tax and save that fivo
per cent. A much larger per cent
off is secured by tho man who takes
tho weeds in season. One can go
over a garden with an iron rake
when the weeds aro just breaking
tho ground, and in an hour's time
accomplish wonders. A week later
he will havo to take his hoo and
laboriously cut, cut, cut. And
oven then ho doson't destroy half
as many of the roots of weeds as
ho would have done a week before
with tho rake. Neglecting the
weeds is something ono simply
FOOD FOR HOGS.
Sour food, irregular feeding and
a surpulus of too much corn or
anything elso is very apt to produce
indigestion in tho hog, and
through it many other diseases, all
which aro inimical to successful
business. The hog should always
bo fed only sweet food, and be
given time to thoroughly masticate
that which calls for it, and
should havo at least two meals a
day. Ho should never be over fed
or stinted; should havo clean, fresh
water at hand all tho timo. shfilfnr
"both winter and summer, and a
warm dry bed to rest in at will
when warmth is necessary. Tho
bed should bo kept clean and dry
and freo from dust; should be cleaned
regularly and air-slaked lime
dusted on tho floor every time before
tho bedding is put in. Wo
sometimes use carbolic acid, but
find limo cheaper and more lasting.
Wo always give our hogs the run
of a grass lot when possible,' for
both grass and exercise aro essential
to health Live Stock Indicator.

of this country to tho

been accomplished, it still remains
the policy of tho government. Its
consummation will be earnestly
sought, with an abiding faith that
such a result will be a lasting benefit

DA GAMA'S FALL.
rinding tho Battle Lost He Cut Ills Ovnl
From ono of tho rebels who escaped
capture by tho government
troops after the insurgent defeat
near Santa Ana, Rio Grande do jrjul,
Brazil, last week details of tho last
battle in which Admiral de Gaiha
took part and of his suicide, have
The admiral, at the head of a
force of 400 sailors, was engaged
by a brigade of government soldiers
numbering 1200. Tho battle lasted
fivo hours, and at least 300 men
wero killed and wounded. Some
of tho insurgents advised Da Gama
to retreat, but he refused and they
abandoned him. With a handful
of men tho admiral repulsed five
charges of tho government cavalry,
but tho struggle was hopeless, and,
seeing that all was lost, Da Gama
ordered a retreat, and then cut his
own throat. Da Gama's body was
taken to Santa Ana by tho government
troops and thcro horribly
mutilated. Tho throats of many
of tho captured rebels wero cut by
the victorious soldiers.
Globo on the A'crgo of a Boon
Hon A. D. Underwood returned
from Globo yestcrdaj' morning.
Ho reports that town as on tho
edgo of a great mining boom which
he says is suro to come. Tho big
Buffalo mines under tho management
of Dr. E. II. Cook aro being
put in readiness and work with a
largo forco of men will be shortly
Tho Old Dominion in the hands
of its now proprietors is also shaping
itself for action.
In tho belief of Mr. Underwood
700 men will bo at work within the
next 00 days.
The Bowio and Globo railroad
has been completed as far as Fort
Thomas and as soon as it has been
definitely settled when work in
tho Globe mines will be resumed
tho railroad will bo pushed forward
with vigor and conpleted.
This done tho greatest mineral district
in tho entire country will bo
put in close communication with
tho outsido world. At that timo
tho boom will begin in dead earnest
and mines will bo mado to pour
out wealth that now because of
their isolation cannot be worked
Thero appears to be some troublo
about tho right of way on tho San
Carlos reservation. Capt. Jleyers,
tho agent in chargo has refused tho
right of wa' up tho San Carlos valley
and appears determined to make
tho railroad take to tho mesa lands
above. This can bo done only at
a much greater outlay. It is believed
however that an amicable
arrangment can bo reached and
tho building proceed without delay.
Globo is ono of tho best towns in
tho country. It is mado so not
only because of tho vast depossts
of mineral to be found thereabouts,
but because of the sterling character
of its citizens. What ever
their good fortuno may be they are
fully entitled to it Herald.
The Camp Apache Boad.
Mr. Thos. Nekon, of Pine Top.
Navajo Co. called at tho Guardian
office baturday morning and in
speaking of the road from hero to
Foit Apache said:
"I would liko to seo the .road to
Apacho crowded to completion as
soon as possible; thero is good iced
and water on the way, there is no
reason why it should not bo done.
I am interested in a saw mill at
Pine Top and freighters who go to
Apache with frieght could come to
tho mill and load with lumber for
the return trip, thus being assured
of a load each way. Wo sell lum
ber at S10.00 at tho mill. I only
speak of this lumber and price as
an encouragement to complete the
road. Any assistanco I can lend
on the road I will bo glad to do;
thero are many others who hold
the same view and if the start is
once mado there will be no trouble
in securing workmen."
This road is necessary not only
for tho benefit of thoso who are
looking for market for their produce
but for every business man in the
county, and wo beleive if tho mat
ter was properly handled valuable
aid could bo obtained from tho
Government, as it will bo a much
better route from Grant to Apache
than tho present ono via San Carlos
The Indian Beserintloul

Nearly everybody in Albuquerque
knows Jos. IE. Ilampson, the
wellknown railway contractor and -builder.
Ho has built more lines
of railway than any one man in
the souhtwest and is almost as well
known in all sections of tho country
as he is in New Mexico.
Some years ago when Mr.
building road on tho line
of tho Atlantic & Pacific, west,from
Gallup, he frequently mot the, old-time
Texas cattlemen who in 1883
and thereabouts, frequented this
part of the country Mr.
then had a ranch and was fond
of talking about tho possibilties of
tho stock growing industry, and
what ho knew about cattle. The
Toxans would often poko fun at
Mr. Ilampson and shut off debate
by saying, "well Jo, vou know a
good deal about building railroads
but you don't know anything about ,
cattle." Sinco that time the
and their herds of cattle have
disappeared from tho ranges of $
New Mexico. They may all be s.
cattle kings now in tho Lono Star
state, or broken in purso and spirit
bcwhittling pine sticks before the
entrance of so.no crossroads store.?
But Jo. Ilampson floats serenely.
on the wave of good fortune as tho
owner of one of tho finest cattle
ranches in Arizona.
Last November Mr. Ilampson
sold a bunch of steers for 05,000,
and realized a hansomo profit from
tho deal. Cattle men believe ho y
bad reached tho top notch and the v fj
men who thought tho stock
trj' was dead in the territory open-
ed their oj'cs in wonder at the sue- '
cess of the great railroad builder.
And now comes further news ofs?
Mr. Ilampson. He has just sold to
tho Schcidly Cattle companany for
95,000 in cash, a bunch of 5,000
steers for which he has received '
tho highest price paid for cattle in
three years. Tho steers were
en from Mr. Hampson's Arizona '
ranch, and aro said to have beenj
in unusually fine condition.
Mr. Hampson's good fortune indicates
that money and plenty of
it can be made in cattle in Arizona
as well as in New Mexico. As a
builder of railways, ho was success-
lul because ho applied business,
methods to tho execution of all
tho details of his immense contrac
Doubtless, tho same methods,!
different in kind tho same in degree?
he has utilized in the cohduct of
his stock growing interests. At
any rato, Mr. Ilampjon is growing'
rich raising and selling cattle, and
it would bo interesting to know
just what the Texans, who moro
than ten years ago advised him to?
confine his efforts to railway building,
would think of the contractor's
two big deals.
A patron wishes to know how
much tho public debt has been re-5-'
duced smco tho coinage of silver
was stopped? '
Answer Not a single dollar!
On tho contrary it has been increased
$162,000,000 says tho Enquirer.
Thern lvinir lrlln in tlm
ury vaults 55,000,000 of silver
bullion which belongs to tho Gov- -
ernment which Secretary Carlisle
could send to the mint witlfiSht'anv
additional legislation, and which, n
if coined, could be lawfully and
properly used in tho payment of
any indebtedness of the United.?,
States. As a reduction of tho ,
nrac of lawful monoy increases tho
purchasing power ot what is leftV)
the burden of tho public debt is
growing heavier. Tho reason, giv
en lor not coining tho seignorage
is a substantial one. The Roths
childs syndicate would refuse to
let our Government have any more'
gold on our bonds if we coined
dishonest moneu. So lonrr as tho
policy of Sherman, Qlovclcnd, Car:
usiu tv uu, is iiiuimaniuu ui
the gold interest-bearing bonds
for tho benefit of foreign gold
syndicates wo can sustain our
foreign credit. Our patron wilL
have a better understanding of tho -situation,
and wiry wo have not
duccd our public debt, when he's
realizes that every silver dollar,!
every greenback, every Treasury
noto, every silver certificate, every!
national bank note, amounting a
tho asrerejrato to over one thousand
million of dollars, aro redeemable
only in gold coin on demand, and;
that wc have not halt, enough gold'
to redeem them; and then tabes
into account that the accruing in
terest on our largo ana increasing .
bonded debt is payable in gold
only. He must also remembcxu
that our exports do not brings
enough gold to pajT interest on ourj
railroad securities held abroadj
ana that this dencit must be pro-J

bo grateful that our debts are not!
