There is now about 100 tons ready for shipment, of which Ed Fond re n has about 30 tons, tho balance being owned by Richard Welch, Sic AflVe, Jerry Coughlan, Fitzgerald, F. L. Toombs, a party of Italians and some others. This tection will make a wonderful showing this season, con sidering tbo fact that every one who is working there have very limited re sources mid must depend on the re turns from their oro to continue) their development. Alfred C Sieboth of Denver, and G A. Loudbery of Milwaukee, mining experts in tbo Interests of the North western National bank of Chicago, ar rived in town last .Monday night.

From Our Kesular Correspondent Tlio cattlemen of Tonto Basin, who havo been having leisure timo for the past several months, commenced a week ago to get their blood in circula tion and arms and legs in motion for tho general work which begins on April 1st at Cline as a starting point. Horses aro in condition and ready for business"; cattle are also in good order and will make a good race before they surrender. Chas. Seigel and George Folton 're turned last week from Mesa with a herd of horses. Tho cattle buyers have all left for tlio lower country. For the last few weeks tho Basin has been visited by three gentlemen call ing themselves missionaries of tlie true SlelhodUt sort. I have not heard of anyone being converted. Dr. Slaisch got a call Monday even ing from Pine, as Dave Fuller had been thrown from a horse aud broke a shoulder blade. The doctor left for there the same evening and has not yet returned, and it is not known when he will, as "Straw oerry" is only a few miles from Pine. Week before last the report having gained credence hero that the Gisela school children wero to give an enter tainment ou Friday, March 22, to murk tho closing of the school, and as Sliss Slinnie Webb, tbo teacher, has tne rep utation of getting up very good ex hibitions, several Tonto folks went over to Gieela on the 22nd, only to find that they had anticipated the event a week too noon. However, in order to not disappoint tho visitors it was arranged to have a dance Friday nilit and tho school entertainment on the following day, Saturday, and the program was carried out and another dauco giveu Saturday night. At that time the SiLvEit Bklt bad not ar rived aud tho good people of Gisela bad no knowledge of tho death of Harry Tardy, their former teacher, who was held iu high esteem. Had they known of the deplorable event, instead of a dance and entertainment being giveu, thellag, which Mr. Tardy gave tlio school, would have been at half mast out of respect for the de deased. Last Thursday I was informed that the grave of the lato Trueman Reed, in the Tonto graveyard, had been desecrated. Sir. Reed, who was a resident of Pine, died at the Hardt home on 1 onto, and was buried here. Before his death lie requested that a -uitable stone bo placed over his grayo, aud left money to pay for it. i his stone was stolen last Thursday. Not believing tiiat anyone would do o contemptible a trick and lay them selves liable to criminal prosecution, I rode up to the graveyard Friday and found the report to be true. The picket fence around tho grave had been broken and tbc stone taken. Al Despaln, who was the administrator of tho Reed estate, will undoubtedly invtstfgato the matter and havo the guilty parly, if discovered, prosecuted. Last Friday evening Mr. II. P. Davis of Colorado Springs, Colo., who is in the real estate and mining business there, came hero to look over his min ing interests in this copper belt. He is Interested with Sir. Cady, who has been here lor the pasty ear prospecting and doing some development work un several mines. Sir. Davis left April 1st for Phoenix, via Reno Pass. graph company, held In New York, .March 27, marked the twenty-flfth an niversary of the invention of the tele phone by Prof. Bell. In a retrojpect of tho progress since that timo the re port of Acting President Alexander Cochrane said: "Twenty years ago there were 47,880 telephone subscribers in tho United States, and 29,714 miles of wire in use for telephone purposes At the end of last year there weto 808,880 exchange stations equipped with our Instruments, and 1.001,801 miles of wire were employed fur ex ciiangu and toll-lino Bervlco. The, es timated numberof daily exchangH con nections is 5,CG8,98G, or about 1,825, 000,000 per year. The investment in line construction, equipment and sup plies for the long distance system up to December 31, 1900, was $10,152,020." Bricks made of fruit pulps done up in oiled tissue uaper, hard, compact, and well nigh imperishable, will fur nlsh material for the building of many a threat American fortune within the next few years. California people are experimenting In their manufacture; the problem is almost solved and be fore long we shall be sending immense quantities of them to Europe. Then) fruit bricks retain their freshness for a surprising length of time," sayb sec retary or Agriculture Wilson "They are all but proof against deterioration, being perfectly good and fit for use eighteen months or two years afier being manufactured. A oat the con sistency of a Bolt gumdrop, they are decidedly toothsome, and, tho pulp being mixed with a large percentage of sugar, they hold the flavor of the fruit admirably. Fruit pulps are al ready being prepared in this shape in France, and, though as yet we are not manufacturing them commercially, there is every reason to suppose tli.it before long we shall make and sell them in great quantities to foreign buyers." A noted European scientist recently predicted that electricity will be the poor man'.s friend in a comparatively short span of years and will .supply him with heat and power. The mar velous advancement made in all scien tific avenues within recent years, and especially in the field or chemistry, augurs well for the future. Electricity iiradmitted to be still in its infancy. With the invention of the dynamo u new era was unfolded for the employ ment of this great agent. Develop ment will go on. New inventions and discoveries are displacing accepted theories, aro defying laws declared in violable. It was held as an eternal principle that no medium but tbo human hand, guided by in telligence, could space out a line of typo, until Slergentbaler invented his typesetting machine and laughed the theory to scorn. It was held as the' truth of centuries that an opaquo ob ject was impenetrable to light until Roentgen discovered his X ray s. The limitations of sound were entirely mis understood until tbo tones of the human voice were carried hundreds miles by the invention of the tele phone. It is well worthy or note that great inventions and discoveries have been confined to no nation or country. The need for them has brougnt them forth as the response to the demand. VARIOUS lOt'lCS. Ex-Secrotary Whitney has recently purchased the most costly picture and Pierpout .Morgan tho most costly book in the world. Sir. Whitney has re cently purehnsed what is considered the best Van Dyck in existence, and is said to have paid S) 20,000 for it. It is a portrait of William de Villiers, Viscount' Grandison, the favorite cour tier of King Charles I, at whose order it was painted and in whoso boudoir it hung until after his death, it rep resents De Villiers, life size, in tho at titude of a cavalier of the seventeenth century, whose high boots, deep lace collar and a hat with brilliant plumes. At the recent celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Van Dyck as many as possible of his pictures were brought togothcr at Antwerp, and this portrait was universally con ceded to be the most perfect and char acteristic example of his genius. Sir- Morgan's book is the only copy of Faust and Schoeffer's Psalter in pri vate hands. It was tho second book printed, the first being tho famous Gutonburg Bible. It bears tho date of 1459, and is in perfect condition. There are three or four other copies of this edition, but they are all in public institutions in Europe. The price paid is confidential, but is believed to have been in the neighborhood of $23,000. The annual stockholders' meeting of tho American Telephone & Tele- Next spring the secretary of agri culture will distribute throughout the country young trees as well as garden seeds, says the Chicago Record-Herald's Washington correspondent. Au thority for this new departure was se cured at tne recent session of con gress and an appropriation was made in the regular budget for the coming year. The garden seed distribution has been the subject of no end of ridi cule and there is no doubt that a great deal of money is wasted in that way, but it is, nevertheless, one of the most popular features of our paternal gov ernment, and members of congress recognize its political importance to such an extent that no argument can induce them to abolish or abridge it. The distribution of trees, however, is Secretary Wilson's own idea. The people of this country have been cut ling down the natural forests with .so much recklessness that it has become necessary to start artificial ones. The division of forestry or the agricultural department has made a survey or the country and has ascertained the par ticular trees which thrive best and are most useful in each locality. Accord ing to the programme for the distri bution of trees, next year a given number of seedlings will bo alloted to each member of the liouso of repre sentatives, who will be asked to fur nish a listof constituents to which he would like to have them sent. The agricultural department will do the rest. The seedlings will be grown in the propogatlng-houses and forwarded to their destination with specific in structions as to how they should be planted and cared ror. In this way Secretary Wilson expects to start sev. , eral millions or trees growingthrough out this country every year. ' J 4 ?; "'I i T IIMllll I "r.
