The important demand of Indian prosperity on the demand for the precious metals is well known. The rtmarkable feature of the present year is that the Indian demand, which has been very large, has run rather to gold than silver. For the ten months to October 31st India has taken from London a total of .10.947,463 in gold, an unprecedented amount, while the total value of its i silver purchases has been C 2.000,000 less than the gold. The silver tak ings have not fallen off, but are greater than for several years past. The approximate quantities represent ed by these values are 2,816,100 oz. gold and 77.270,500 oz. of silver, being respectively about 13 and 35 per cent of the world's production. The important question is what effect the growing demand for gold may have on future takings of silver, and con sequently on the future price. An important point is that the gold and . ! silver taken bv India is nearly all little being exported. En- Deputy Sheriff Allie Howe of Co chise county arrived in town yesterday morning with a brace of convicts for Florence. One of them is James Quinn convicted of assault with a deadly weapon. He took a shot at a China man. The other is Joe Brady for highway r bbery. He held up a boy on the road between Lewis Springs and Huachuca and took $2 from him at tiie point of a. knife which' he in serted into the arm of the youth to facilitate his delivery. Mr. Howe lately made the capture of a man wanted in Phoenix but he happened also to be wanted in Gray county, Texas and the authorities of that jurisdiction made the first call for him. His name is J. M. Bower who has been scattering forged or fictitious checks all over tlve country. Bower was at Benson on November 2 and he disposed of three checks there. He next came to Phoenix and !e cashed one check at the St. Francis and also at least one other before he left again for the south. The Texas authorities traced him to this point. Deputy Sheriff Howe happened to know that a man answering the de scription of him sent out by the Texas sheriff had gone lately to Cananea and he found them and brought them back to Tombstone. An officer from Texas was expected there last night. o nURRELSQiilE TERRORIZES TOWN Kills Wife, wounds Friend and Stands 0f Posse UntM Fatally Shot. child ri-n from the care and custody of its parents whets'' the showing was made that the parents was immoral character and not the fit person to rear a child.

Dec. 22 Trying to escape today from a posse seeking him for shooting and fatally wounding his wife and her woman friend, Dominick Oyr, dairyman, barricaded himself in his home five miles from here and was not taken until fatally wounded. He had gone home earlier today and af ter a quarrel shot his wife and her friend Mrs. Murray Clarke who sought to intercede. Then arming himself with two shotguns and thre revolvers, he first made an effort to get away, but after terrorizing the neighborhood and commanding a horse, he returned home reaching there just before the sheriffs men. Friends who tried to prevail on him to surrender, were answered with shots and he fired many times .n the offi cers. Once in firing he showed himself and a bullet readied him.

Van Bide-a-wee Three-quarters mile north of East Lake Park of rice during the nine months amounted to $11,433,283 against $5, 294,014 in the corresponding period of 1911. In addition to this heavy increase in imports of ttve staple foodstuffs of the islands due to ex treme emergency conditions, there were substantial increases in other branches of trade, notably in the cast? of meat and dairy products, cot ton' goods, wheat flour and mineral oils. In the larger export trade for the nine months of 1912 hemp is the lead ing factor, with copra and cigars also , showing considerably increased val- j ties, while there was a material de- ! cline in sugar shipments. The ex tr mely low price of hemp that has prevailed for some time, showed a marked and steady upward movement throughout the period from an aver ig.? of $101 per long ton in January to $141 in September,- while the quantities marketed continued large, and yielded an increased value of $4, 737,087 over that of the corresponding period of depressed prices in 1911. Larger quantities and improved ex port prices also operated in the case i f copra and resulted in an increase of $3,549,490. while in the cigar trade the growing American demand was the ruling factor in an increase of $1,185,261. The severe doruht that resulted disastrously for rice production also seriously affected the sugar industry and exports for nine months amount ed to 148,543 against 192.02S long tons) for the saitw period of 1911, with a reduction of $2,422,308 in value. Imports from the United States amounted to $18,251,889 and repre sented 38 per cent of the total. In the increase of $4,450,529 there was a larger trad? in cotton goods, bread stuffs, meat and 'dairy products and mineral oils. The United States took 43 per cent of all exports and was credited with a value of $17,103,901 in which increased values for hemp, copra and cigars were to a large ex tent offset by a reduced sugar trade. Exports of sugar were less exclu sively to the United States than heretofore since the establishment of free trade. American purchases of cigars on tho other hand greatly in creased and constituted more than half of this larger trade. t eristic of courage w hich made France under Napoleon the First, the terror of Kurope and able for a season tc dominate the whole continent. Tiie experience of the brave Athenian youth is repeated in the story of a young Frenchman who proudly rush ed into the presence of the emperor with the news that the battle was won. The eye of his great comman der shown with a new glory, but as it rested upon the l. ave lad, he exclaimed, "You are wounded, my boy!" "Not wounded but dying. Sire!" was the response. Of him self entirely forgetful, he could think only of the safety and glory of the imperial army, of which he was but a small part, his own personality lost in his mighty love for the em peror and 'the fatherland. W- know what a power this ele ment of courage was in the history o; the Jewish people, illustrated in many a familiar story recorded in the pages of the Old Testament. In modern days, it has been re vealed in the history and career of the Anglo-Saxon race in India and South Africa, and here in America. Our national history is full of such experiences of personal and united courage on a la! go and a small scale, illustrated in the war of Inde pendence, which thrilled and moved and inspired the hearts and arms of the descendants of the revolutionary heroes and their brave compatriots through the trying and tragic days of the g eat civil war. That this national characteristic ha not been entirely lost has been revealed to the men of this generation in many a gallant deed recorded in the brief but memorable ri cord of the war for Cuban freedom. When we turn from national cour age, which has shone lortn in neroir fcchiovment w ith which history is , crowded, indicating that this element j of courage has made those nations strong and powerful where is was most exemplified: when we turn from this phase of courage to the same spirit illustrated in individual casef. we lind the admiration and applause of men hardly less inten.se and pro found. No matter what the deed is, if it is an act of courage we praise the man who does it without regard tp other qualities. I am alraid we sometimes have a respect for physical courage which we should not have when it is associated with cruelty of. foolhardiness; when, in fact, it is extremely -selfish and has for its object only self-gratification and laudation. The courage of the prize-fighter. lor example, is purely physical and of a low type that is degrading in its manifestation as well as corrupt ing to the individual character. Saint Paul has somewhere spoken of the duty of adding to one.'s laith, courage. Here comes in a moi al quality which gives a new beauty end meaning to the word. At first thought we may be a little sur prised, as we were when the great apostle classed Hope with Faith and Charity, or Love, as the three card inal Christian virtues. Hut a little thought will convince us that Hope and Courage both must be notes struck by the disciple if he follows the example of his .Master, who was a man of inflexible hope and of su preme courage. We must have faith i' we are to have the strongest and best kind of courage. It is faith in em's country that makes a. man courageous and alert to do his best for that country. We need to add lalth in our country, in its aims, In its responsibilities, in its duties. I do not mean a blind and unthink ing faith, which, like some people's religious faith, has no foundation be cause it is not built upon reason and conviction. The man who has this national faith may see the mis takes that his country or its rulers are making; he may deplore the corruption that crops out now and then, as has been illustrated in some diselosun s of the past few months He may despise the heartless and selfish manner- in which men high in the national counsels are seeking their own aims and well-being rath er than the well-being of the nation, and yet preserve clear and strong, Ills abiding faith in the destiny and the final redemption of his country. To work under God his wise pur poses, to turn this prophecy into fact, he himself and those like mind ed must be patriots penetrated with the spirit of courage and vigilance, which shall make them strong to speak out and to withstand with all the'.- might the evils in city and in state, and to watch against and to condemn all unpatriotic and dis honest attempts to low( r the national sense of honor and justice and per fect integrity. I!ut let me now speak, in the sec ond place, of the courage that is needed to be Joined with faith in one's fellow men if we are to be of service to our generation to (do Christ's work in the world. I confess that it is not always easy to retain this faith in the ord inal1 y human nature with which we eome in contact, and perhaps we lose faith i'nd courage too, -when we study, our own hearts and measure our inclinations and desires, our own pettiness and meaness, our selfishness and egotism. In the earlier chapters of the bible we are told that God made man in hi own image. It is a startling truth and we find it hard to believe it. We can never accept and under rtand it unless we acquire something of Christ's spirit of calling out the noblest and best in human nature nnd idealizing the men and wpoti with whom we have to deal. - and who thus are touched by our faith and sympathy when it is clear and si n pie and are moved to turn away from the life and conduct that other rr.en .see and to seek to make re-al, in an imperfect and fragmentary manner, the pure.- and nobler image formed of their character by the men of Christ-like spirit. There 1st a Christian courage as much as there is a Christian faith. There is the man of crime and evil Hie who goes to the .scaffold with bravado and blasphemy upon his lips. He may not flinch or tremble ov cry out in agony. He may bo per fectly stolid' in the acceptance of hia . just . punishment, but it . is not courage of a high kind that sustains him. There is no moral quality, lie may 'fear nothing, but he die.i as ' he has lived, like a cruel beast. . There may be the highest kind of courage, on the other hand, found in his old aye., and all his little fortune is swept away through no fault of his own, and perhaps his occupation is gone forever, but he does not complain, he does not grow bitter and hard, but he bravely faces his trial and works on, and hopes on with faith and courage in his tieart. Here is a person in the fullness of youth and strength pain and sickness during all the long that stretch out in struck down by which must last and weary years the unknown fu- the man who knows all the dangers that beset him, who fears in hH heart. whose refined and spiritual nature; is thoroughly alive to all that ho must endure in pain and in sor iow and in lone-liness, physical, men ti:f and spiritual, and yet does not nhirk his duty but faces it squarely, entirely. What moral courage ts 'en in the man who is willing to the disapprovav ot nis friends, knows that he will lose the will of his fellow men, per have to sacrifice fortune and else that he holds dear, in or that he may not violate what lace who good haps all der his own conscience demands oi nun. i .The ea.iy ages of Christianity are full of such stories, and Christian courage has not disappeared in our modern life as we discover when we read the lives of such men and women as David Livingstone. Father Da mien and Chinese Gordon, Florence Nightingale and Sister Dora. No hero i.ral saint in the olden days, Atan asius or Francis or Assisl or Saint Elizabeth sifT-assed them in uplift ing and noble moral courage. But let me speak of the need of courage in the ordinary occupations e.f life on a less conspicuous plane, not vi&ible, perhaps, to the eyes of others, but which -Ood demands of us t .i i . .. . . j who are not caueu, iiriimim, io mighty sacrifices and great tieeus like these. We must not depreciate nor underestimate "the courage that is displayed by many men and wom en in the ordinary routine of sickr i-ess, of suffei ing, M" disappointment, of loneliness, of loss. The courage! here' displayed may not be less ac ceptable to the Great Father who understands the anguish and the fear of. the human heart which has not to cheer and encourage It the con sciousness of a great and heroic sacrifice that is bringing redemption, perhaps, to multitudes of fellow men. 1 mean the simple and pathetic trag edies of many a man and woman's life, heroically met, silently and un noted save by a few.' It . is, cowardice hee that will prove'" fatal to the higher life of the soul, .and it is Christian courage ' here that will on noble and gain the victory. Here is a man who has worked hard and honestly all his life to care for those whom he loves, and for a modest livlihood to sustain him in ture. The demon of despair and of unbelief is knocking at the door of that man's heart to enter in, but he will not listen. He finds himself no longer able to take his place by the side of the workers of the earth. He has learned that hard lesso-i. taught nobly by Milton in his great sonnet: "They also serve who only stand and wait," but he does lean; it, and God adds to his faith, courage. Here is another man w ho faces the I disappointments of life in many a varied line. His friends fail him. His ambitions and hopes are broken into fragments. He attains no success in life; perhaps the opportunity for ed ucation, which he craved early in life, was denied him; perhaps hr- has to live practically an exile in an un congenial atmosphere among low and sordid conditions of life, with nothing beautiful or inspiring in his daily life. It would be easy to curse God and to die, as the patriarch of old was tempted to do in the gray dawn ot human history when he grappled with the mystery of pain and sorrow, but. like Job, he can learn the truth ef a courageous faith and still trust in God even though He slay him. To such high faith and courage the revelation of God's eternal love will surely come, and the everlasting arms will bear him up. To the mother, bereft of her child -i en, with loneliness in her heart and the mother hunger unsatisfied: to the disappointed hopes In the lives of her children, who, more tragic still, turn into igneble paths and be tray and crucify the parental love; to all the common and natural trag edies of human life there comes the divine command to gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. No life is so poor and emp ty and broken that some fragments do not still remain to be gathered up. It is easy to scatter them: to think it not worth while to gath er them into baskets. It is easy, God knows how easy, for the poor, ti. uised, and wounded soul to grow bitter, and bard, and cold, and narrow and unlovely and hateful. It is easy enough to reject God's fatherhood nnd no longer to believe in man's love and service, but easiei sx.it, !f we only will not forget that we are God's children living in God's world will it be to preserve hope and faith and love, in spite of the shad cws ami the e-ncircling waters ef darkness on which the Divine feet lire still walking and oevr which the Divine voice is still sounding. "It is I. Tie not afraid." We have come once more to the end of the Advent season. Once v.iore the voice of the greatest ot Hebrew prophets has sounded in our ears: "Behold tiie Kingdom of Hea ven is at hand!" With wavering faith and cruel doubt, we turn to ga2e upon the world into which Christ came nineteen centuries ago. Under the starlight sky of Palestine we hear again the angels sing, "Peace on esuth, good will to men," but hte vear closes with an armed peace as the ambassadors and en- i voys of Europe gather ' together in j the historic palace- of Saint James ! in the City of London, with divided counsels and anxious hearts, to set- i tie, if they can, one of the bloodiest and most cruel wars in all history At home and abroad is waging the tierce combat of industrial war; a contest no less cruel and destructive. The hand of mr.n is turned agr.inst ills tr other. Labor and Capital, in stead ot living in unity and peace, are at each other's throat; bitterness, distrust and hatred are on every ride. That brotherhood and unity which Christ declared long ago when he walked this earth seems a far iway dream. Hate and greed and lust walk hand in hand, as men seek in passion and cruelty to attain their own ends, the g'. atification the moment, that will endure for on ly a brief season. Defend us, f Christ of the tender and pitying heart if we seem to lose courage and faith as we make ready once more to welcome the coming of our Master and King!
