climatic reasons: Weyler msy be a dis

Havana are correct be is likely to shine
as the most brilliantly successful mule
dealer on record. The General appears
to have srone into the mule business
psrtly for the glory of Spain, but more
laxgely for the money there is in it. The
st ry is that he has American mulea
delivered in Cuba at a ooat of $35 per
head, which he promptly turos over to
the Spanish authorities at $75 per head,
the difference between prices remaining
in tha handa of middlemen as a sort cf
self-collected reward for their highly
Masoned ratriotism. With this ex
planation of the traffic to guide him,
Weyler probably concludes that the
commission on the mule trade ia a great
deal more profitable than a commission
in the Spanish army.

Ik the north and west tbia season is
the most severe in the history of the
country. In Oregon and Washington
the rivers, Including the Columbia and
many smaller streams, are olosed with
loe. wnile the small bodies of wster are
very where frozen. Such severe weath
er, so early in the season, finds stock
men totally unprepared to proteot
their oattle, many of which are still on
the range, and it is estimated that many
thousands will psrish of cold snd starva
tion. In the region about the bead-
waters of the Missouri river the whole
country is covered with snow and ice
to the depth ot 12 to 16 inches. Cattle
by the thousands are nnable to get food
and are dying by droves. Many stock
men have large stores of feed, but owing
to the sudden severity ot the weather,
are totally unable to distribute them in
way to relieve their stock.

fully encouraging fact is the continued
high prices for wheat, and the fact that
the farmers are gstticg a substantial ad
vantage from it. It has been observed
that deliveries of wheat are much less
now than at this time last year, and this
ia taken as svidsnoe that the farmers are
fully alive to the immense advantages
which lie within their reach, due to the
failure of crops on the other side of the
world. As the orop is marketed at the
higher prices, and the farmers reoeive
their cash and credit, there will follow a
demand for wares of all ainds, greater

The airship continues to hold its own
as a subject of public discussion. It is
alleged to have been seen in all parts of
California and the visual evidence in
support of one euoh ship is quite as

talk may be considered serious is Mr.
W. H. H. Hart, the well-known lawyer,
who soberly declares that he is the attor
ney cf an inventor who has recently
built and operated two airships in that
state and that he is cow engaged in
building a third. He has been able, Mr.
Hart deolares, to attain and sustain for
several hours a speed of about twenty
miles per hour and is making improve
ments designed to vsstly inorease the
efficiency of his ship, Mr. Hart does
not olaim to have personally seen these
ships, but he says they undoubtedly
exist and that San Franoisco will soon
be given an opportunity to view them in
broad dayiigbt. A cock-and-bull-air is
given to Mr. Hart's story by his addi
tion to it that hia client is negotiating
with the Cuban junta for the drstruo
tion of Havana by dynamite and that he
will dsmand for such services something
like $10,000,000. People generally hare
come to regard the whole thing as a
hoax, but there sre many who assert
that they hare seen the mysterious sir
ship and are willing to stake any sum
upon its existence.

which is spparently not generally

influence on educali tonal matters in the
territory, is that (he apportionment of
the school funds is based upon the
average attendance. It the parents de

full period, they should see to it that
their children are all in their seats each

dollars or so in the amount of available
money for school purposes in this city j
would make a marked difference in the
length of the next school term. This
matter should be constantly be borne
in mind and nothing but the most press

Coal mining is promising to become
ao important industry in Arizona. In
tbe northern part of the territory ex
tensive Doaies or Dituminous coal are
encountered north and east of the Paint
ed Desert region. This coal cropa out
in many places acd at one point has a
thickness of twenty-three feet. The
San Carlos coal lands lie eist of the
Painted Deeert tract and extend north
east into Colorado and New Mexico.
The Mining Industry says It oomea to
tbe surface in many places and aafar aa
now known consists of three strata?, the
first two having a thickness of four feet
while the last snd lower oee is often
found fifteen feet in thickness. One
thing which has prevented the develop
ment of the San Carlos coal measures is
tbe fact that it ia covered by tbe Indian
reservation and ucless some steps are
taken by congress no work can be
d one. Pros pec to r.

Michigan Man Offers to Send
His Discovery Free.
Claims to be a Benefaeter to Weaken
There is always more or leesauspioion
attached to anything that ia offered free
but sometimes a man so overflows with
generosity that be cannot rest until hia
discovery is known to the world, in
order that his fellow men may profit by
what he has discovered. It is upon thia
principle that a resident of Kalamazoo,
Mich., desires to send free to mankind
a prescription which will cure them of
any form of nervous debility; relieve
them of all the doubt and uncertainty
which such men are peculiarly liable to
and restores the organs to natural size
and vuor. As it costs nothing to try
the experiment it would seem that any
man, suffering with the nervous troubles)
that uauelly attack men who never stop
ped to realize what might be tbe final
result, ought to be deeply interested in
a remedy whioh will restore them to
health, strength and vigor, without
which tbey continue to live an existence
of untold misery. As the remedy in
question was the result of many years
research as to what combination whould
be peculiarly effective in restoring to
men the strength tbey need, it would
seem that ail men suffering with any
form of nervous weakness ought to
write for such a remedy at once. A re

curosity, but that yon wish to make nee
of the medicine by giving it a trial, will

though some may wonder how Mr. Olda
can afford to give away hia discovery,
there is no doubt about the offer being
genuine. Uut this out and send to Mr.
