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.
