The play is not only one of the moet
absorbing, but one of tbe greatest euc
cesses seen in years, and for four seasons
has brought much profit to its manager.
There are few attractions which have

ment of every scheme which had for its
object the advancement cf the interests

lowed their patient, conscientious, per
sistent work, is simply a just return for
all their labor, and is a source of deep
satisfaction to their many friends
throughout tbe territory.

trella. M. G. Samaniego, and S. Rambo,

ped twenty-four tons of ore to tbe smel
ter nt Pueblo, Col., and the returns ex
ceeded his most sanguine expectations.
Six hundred end thirty ounces of silver
one half an ou jce o! gold . and ten per
cent of copper per ton, is certainly indi
cative of an excellent property. The
fact that Mr. Goldtree has lots mere of
tbe same sort is a source of great oat-
sf fact ion to him, and bis friends congra
tulate him upon the good fortune which
has rewarded his many years of persis
ent, hard work in the territory.
Tbe fair last night was up to the gener
al standard of excellence, both es to
entertainment and financial results. The
commodious building was crowded even
more than usual, and the liberality of
the ' assemblage was evidenced by the
large amount which the treasurer holda
as the result of the evening's work. The
musical program, conducted by Prof.!
end Mrs. Castillo, was all that could be
desired, and at a late hour, everybody
retired with pleasant memories of the
night. A large segregate sum will un
doubtedly be realized from this worthy
venture, and the work of completing tbe
msgniScent Cathedral will be greatly
aided.

When the ladies of Tucson undertake
tbe management of any affair, they know

of acute bronchitis. I put myself
under medical treatment, and at the

great relief ; the second, which I am
now taking, lias relieved me almost
entirely of all unpleasant symptoms,

Tbe Sierritas are claiming a place in
the attention of the mining world on
account of tbe worth of a number or
brst class claims which are being open

to ascertain the value of ledges nd that
is by einKing on mem. Ana men woo

aware of tbe truth of this proposition
and are striking for the bottom where
tne rich ores lies.
Amocg the moat prominent of the pro
perties which are receiving attention at

The work is being done on a five font

without assorting, relume ibo per too
at the sampling works. The remainder
of tbe ledge can be assorted so as to
reach tbe same figures. There sre two
haf ts upon this claim, ooe 85 feet deep
acd the other 45 feet. There is a tunnel
105 feet in length upon tbe vein, and
it is about 40 feet below the bottom ef
the deepest shaft.

A SOLDIER OF FRANCE.
How They Were Made at the Military
School at St. Cyr.
In "A Boy of the First Empire," El
bridge S. Brooks' story of Napoleon in
St. Nicholas, is told how the youthful
hero was made into "a soldier ol
France."
So it was soon over, for all the world
like some wonderful fairy tale, and
Philip Desnonettes, son of the emigre,
bound boy of the washerwomen's
quarter, protege of the emperor,
turned his back upon the nar
row and dirty street he had once :
called his home, and, riding' away '
from the past, was entered as a
pupil in the military school of St. Cyr. '
From the day when, as a new boy, he
was introduced into the new school of
St. Cyr, and was gradually transformed
from an uncouth street-boy to a little
machine, to the day when, four years
later, he left it for other scenes,
Philip Desnouettes life was one of con
tinuous training-, ne got np by the
drum, he ate his meals by the drum, he
went to bed by the drum. He learned
to drill, to ride, and to build fortifica
tions; he received instruction in lan-;
guages, literature, history and mathe-;
matics; he toughened without fires,
developed by austere discipline, lived ;
by rule, played pranks and took his '
mmishment as he did his medicin
without grumbling-, grew, strength-
ened, broadened in mind and body,
t,!i wl ll,-
learned to be a French schoolboy, a
French soldier, a French gentleman.
Then came 1810. Great things had
been happening while Philip was a
schoolboy at St. Cyr. The map of
Europe had been changed again and J
aain. aii-1 Napoleon was the map
maker. There had been wars and
rumors of war; there had been mighty
marches, bloody battles andterrible
triumphs; and with march and battle
and triumph the fume of Napoleon, em
peror of the French, had grown to
mighty proportions. In 1S10 France
and Napoleon were the greatest names
in all the world. And Philip had met ,
Corporal Peyrolles.
Peyrolles, the wooden-legged, had
left his good leg of flesh on the bloody
field of Austerlitz, and, pensioned by
the emperor, had been made one of the
drill sergeants in St. Cyr school.
To Peyrolles the emperor was not a
man, he was "the emperor;" and Pey
rolles worshiped him even as did tbe
Romans of old worship their highest
and bravest as something more than
mortal. And yet the bovs at St. Cvr
declared that but for Peyrolles the
emperur woutu never nave oeen: ior it .
was Peyrolles delight to recount for j
the boys of St. Cyr how "I and the !
emperor" conquered the world! j
But it was largely by Peyrolles
friendly promptings, plus the instruc- I
tion of the St. Cyr school, that Philip i
became proficient in drill and ambi- t
tious of glory. And when, even before j
the allotted term of training, the sum
mons came to "the cadet Desnouettes
to attend upon the emperor, the boy
felt that both fame and glory lay well
within his grasp.
This Ia lour Opportunity.
On receipt cf tea cents, cash or stamps,
a eeneroui sample will be mailed of the
most popular Catarrh and Hay Fever Cure -
(JJy a Cream Balm) sufficient to demon

ELY BROTHERS,

Rev. John Reid, Jr., of Great Falls, Mont,
recommended Ely's Cream Balm to me. I j
can emphasize his statement, "It is a posi- ;
tive cure for catarrh if used as directed" i
Rev. Francis W. Poole, Pastor Central Pres.
Church, Helena, Mont.
Ely's Cream Balm is the acknowledged
cure for catarrh and contains no mercury
nor any injurious drag. Prico, 50 cents.
"Darkest Russia" whiob will be the
attraction at Reid's Opera House Wed
nesday night Deo 16, is a play that bas
aobieved a wooderful success. For
four seasons it has held public interest
and is as popular to-day as when first
produced. It tells a vivid story and
depicts scene that are marvels of real
istio stage pictures. It shows tbe
Nazirooff Palace St. Petersburg, the
Kremlin at Moscow wber tbe (Jzarwas
orowoed, the Hodynski Plain where tbe
public feast was held dories; tbe corona
tion and where tbouesnds met dsatn in
the mad roth for free food. It pictures
the srrat Siberian road, nihilists'
rendezvous, tbe police tribunal, the
noble, the peasant, the student, the spy
atdxil. It is ieautifullvta?ed and
coatumed and shows the Empire as it
exists to-day.
