One month .. —1 Per week, supplied by currier " Single c0py,.... - _ FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1877. Advertisers will make note of the fact that Tub Lkadbb has a larger circula tion than any l>apcr published in TVyo ming.Mt A physician recently took a couple ot ittle crirls to ride with him. They visited one of the cemeteries, and while looking at the various monu ments, the Doctor remarked that he knew one person buried in a lot very well, he having been one of his patients. One of the little girls, looking round, waved her hand toward the other monuments, and innocently inquired, And were those your patients, too?” It has just occurred to us, after read ing accounts of the various hangings in different parts of the country, that if a man is really anxious to go to heaven immediately he lias only to butcher an old woman witli a bludgeon and get hung for his crime. We have failed to notice a single case among the score or so of murderers recently executed where the party had not made his peace with God and died with the assurance of immortal bliss. This method of climbing the golden stair may have its drawbacks for persons of delicate sensibilities, but it seems to be effect ual—which is after all the main point in going to TTeaven. (Corpus Cbrlsti Times. The Kansas City Times says that a General Cook is prepared to throw light upon the “extinct race” that built the western mounds: General Cook, the great traveler and explorer, now at the l acitlc House, has devoted mucli time and attention to the study of the question, “Are the Aztecs tile ancient mound builders of America?” He made an exploration of the region of the Upper Columbia river as early as 18St), while in the United States service, und gathered much valuable information relativo to the ancient races now so utterly lost. Not satisfied with his first exploration, lie again visited the so-called Aztec ruins of northern Mexico, Arizona, and southern Colorado and Utah, at the close of the war of 1865. During the past year, however, General Cook lias visited nearly all the ruins of the great cities of ancient time in the sol itudes of central North America. With his Indian guides and escort he has penetrated where Professors Hay den and Wheeler have never dared to go. He has visited the ruins of the cities of the extinct “cliff builders,” and made ample and full notes of his explorations. General Cook is pre pared to disprove the idea that the extensive ruins in the interior of the continent arc Aztec ruins. Ho claimed that these cities were built by a race of people inferior not only to the ilex lean Aztecs, but to the race known in the history of flic American coniinent. Foreign Ueef Trade. Small but regular shipments of fresh beef from the United States to Great Britain began in April, 1870, after ex periments had proved the feasibility of such exportt. The new enterprise of course excited competition, until eight firms in New York and Philadelphia embarked in it. The maximum of ex portation was reached last April, when over 12,308 head were shipped, includ ing 600 on the hoof. Naturally by this time cattle had materially advanced here. It seemed to all engaged in the trade, and especially to breeders, that the foreign demand for American beef would bo endless and unlimited. To produce a crop of cattle requires from three to four years; a drain seemed in evitable, and rates at the West ad vanced, particularly on fat cattle, these along being shipped. But the expenses were great; the refrigerators were costly; the quantity of ice con sumed was large, to say nothing of freight-money and cost of handling. These contingencies did not admit of sending poor stock. The reputation of American beef in England was such as to place it beside the best English. But the fact remained that beef for some time killed, no matter how well kept in the refrigerators, cannot com pete with fresh-killed beef, the latter being of course brighter and more at tractive to the eye of the ordinary pur chaser. There are those who now see only ruin in this new enterprise, and confi dently predict its abandonment; but the best opinion is that it will ulti mately settle into a trade as regular and legitimate as that in grain, provi sions, petroleum, cheese, butter, cot ton, etc. The margin between prices there and here will regulate the traf fic, which will be of vast importance to the Western country, with its unlim ited capacity for production. For two or three years the trade must wait un til producers have a large stock to meet the new demand. During the past month there have been sent from New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Canada about 5,000 dressed cattle and 3,- 200 on the hoof. From 1,000 to 1,500 sheep also go forward weekly.
