ANNUAL FIESTA DF INDIANS ATTAOS Peculiar Ceremonies and Cus toms of That Tribe of Pueblos. Tans, X. M. A ui?. 10. The ancient Inilinn villa r I'ucblo de Taos, Is one of the most curious arid Inter ey'lnR plat-en on earth. Thero nre two great pyramid houses, one Ave and the other seven stories hiKh, occupied by the entire tribe, lumiberiiiR more than 400 souls. These two pueblo structures are considered the most perfect ex amples of early Indian architecture. Although known to have been ocru- uled continuously for more than 600 years, they show not the slightest sign of decay, but on the contrary, are In a Derfect state of preservation. The Indians who have lived here for eenerations are simple. Quiet, and peaceable, and In a small way, tillers of the soil. Like all aborigines, they are sunerstltlous. believing in all kinds f signs and workings of su nernatural nowers. Although the Indians were taught the Catholic religion by mo spaniarus and now use the Mexican language more freely than their own, the rlests of whom there are several are all French, and a Jolly lot they are. Dances .constitute an Important feature in all of their festival cere worship or of prayer to the Almigh ty Chief. Of festival days there are many, the most Important being the Feast of San Geronlmo, celebrated on the 30th of September every year. Many Tribes Assemble TTtes. NavaJoes. Apaches and Mex icans from hundreds of miles around asscmible at Taos two or three days In advance of the patron saint's festival. In the afternoon dances by hid eously painted clowns and mirth makers are followed by attempts to climib the mole, which Is at last ac complished, and amid the yell of the onlookers the sneep, iruu anu grain are thrown to the ground and carried off, and St. Jerome Is sup posed to rejoice In the happy con elusion of the festival In his honor. The Indian maiden Is not prone to rush into beauty contest, occa slonallv. however, a real beauty Is found among the Taos women. It Is well known that all savages are averse to having their pictures taken, tout quite recently a strolling photo grapher "wandering about the village unobserved and unsuspected 'snap ped" the helle of the pueblo Just as she was descending the perpendicu lar Btairway leadlnK from an upper tier of the wonderfully constructea nvramld house. The training of Del- sarte could not equal the unconscious rrace and ease of poise shown In the free and untrammeled figure descend Ing the stairway. Fortunate It was for Mr. Photographer that the beauty and her friends were Ignorant of his diabolical act. Pioneers at Taos. Two and a half miles away is Fer n a ruler de Taos a Mexican town ouaincly built around a large .plaza Few Americans are there now, 'but an illustrious pioneer has called Taos home. Colonel Kit Carson lived ana is iburled there. Governor Charles Bent was assassinated there Febru ary 17, 1847, during the Pueblo In surrection. Colonel Ceran St. vrain Judge Beaubeln and many others lived there at one time or another, The first newspaper wegt of the Mis sourl river was published at Taos in 1837. In the early morning of this 8t Jerome's day a black-robed Indian makes a recitation from the top of one of the pueblo bui'ldlngs to .the assembled multitude below. In the plaza stands a pine tree pole, fifty feet In height, and from a cross piece near the top dangles a live sheep. Besides the sheep a garland of such fruit and vegetables as the valley produces, together with a basket of bread and grain hangs from the pole. The bell in the little adobe chapel sounds and a few of the Indians g In to mass. After the devotional exercises are concluded, a procession is formed and marches to the race track, which Is a quarter of a mile In length. The runners, of whom there are fifty are naked except for ibreech cloth and are painted no two alike. llnce for Two Hours. Fifty other runners to contest with these arrive from the pueblo across the dividing stream. Two run ners from each side dart down the track. No sooner do they reach the goal than two others start off, and thus for two hours the races con tinue In relays of twos. The victor ious side is given the privilege of electing the Governor for both pueb los for the ensuing year. DID NOT SELECT NEW SECRETARY Santa Fe, X. M.. August 12.

BUSY TIMES AT ORDGRANDE Camp Is Seeing Busiest Days in Its Entire History. Orogrande. X. M., Aug. 12. The week has, perhaps, been the most active ever witnessed In this camp. The smelter management is working steadily on Its sampler and has It all but complete. Several carpenters and ether Fpecial workmen are busy put ting th Mulshing touches to the var ious parts of the smelter. Special lire protection Is being installed with hose hangers and hose all ready for connection. The railroad track along the ore bins Is being laid, the assay office Is being entirely remodeled and everything from one end to the other put In llrst class working con dition. I'p among the mining properties the work Is being pushed as never before. The Monte Carlo people are putting up a number of buildings In cluding a boarding house, office and shop. A dozen or more men are now at work and the new shaft wm be pushed as rapidly as men can do It. A party of stockholders and oth ers Interested In this property came In last evening and have been out looking over the property. Mr. Blair of the Cuprite, also has a party of Investors here and Is showing them over the camp and the Cuprite In particular. This prop erty seems to hold Its own and Is looking better each day. Many Visitor. The Turquoise company Is putting out the finest body ot ore this week In Its history and it now looks as though it had a good thing sure. The Electric company has Just re ceived word that Its car of placer machinery from Joplln. Mo., has been shipped and as soon as It ar rives the Electric will be as .busy as a hornet In summer time. An unusual number of visitors were seen In the camp the past few days and the Sacramento hotel seems to be doing the business of Its short history. The merchants and business men about town, too, are beginning to step lively and are smiling out of the corners of their eyes. The best posted mining men In the camp are beginning to get In shape to do business and advise all of their friends to get In the band wagon while there is yet time. The social life of the camp Is Just at this time at low ebb. It's too hot for outings, picnics or lawn parties and besides a number of the 400 are nut of town spending their vacations In the north and east Mr. and Mrs. Crouch have Just sold their home cottage and have taken up their temporary quarters In one of the cottages on the Boule vard. The family, including Mr. and Mrs. Crouch and Miss Myrtle expect to leave for Los Angeles in about thirty days, where they will make their future home. The past week has been the warm est period of the season and at the present time there seems no Imme diate prospect for a cold wave. MANY IMPROVEMENTS AT SILVER CITY Silver City, N. M., August 12.

He will not divulge the loca tion but there are rumors that it Is to be In Washington state.
