There is perhaps no class of prop erty about which there is so much contention and litigation as mines. This fact is not sururisinji or to be wondered at when the great valuo of this kind of property and the peculiar and oftentimes care less and negligent manner in which the inceptive rights to such property is obtained, are taken into consider ation. It is astonishing how very often locations of mining claims are made in an insufficient manner and how frequently valuable rights are lost by a failure to comply carefully with the few simple laws regulating their acquisition and possession. Fre quent and fruitful sources of liti gation are conflicting and adverse locations. These spring up and multiply in proportion as urines prove themselves of value and as cbe district in which they are situated, ih brought into prominence and at tracts capital. Seme of these adverse claims are the results of acts per formed and rights acquired in gooo faith, but many are bogus, gotten uj by men who .devote their lives t such nefarious practices and who al ways infest new and promising min ing districts. The latter, althougl thev thev may not ultimately sue ceed in courts, often occasion much litigation and expense to bon hdo mine owners as the iormer, anc have of late years increased in sucL alarming proportions as to materially interfere with the mining industries So obscure and unsatisiactory an the titles to many erood claims made by the above causes, and so many purchasers have been deceived and swindled by adverse claims after wards disclosed that capitalists and investors have become timid, and very generally are coming tc the con elusion that much the safest 'plan is to purchase only patented claims, In view or this lacr, it would, seem that tue wisest thini? a claim owner can do is to procure a U. S. patent for his mine. The cost is little. It a claim is worth locating and the as sessment work necessary to hold pos session of it, it is worth patenting. A patent relieves a claim owner fron ail tear oi any iuture connictmg or adverse claim, settles the question ol title to the entire satisraction or in vestors, always enhances the valu or a property, and irequently en ables owners to sell their claims without trouble, when otherwise pur chasers could not be found. As a matter of economy even i patent is desirable. The cost of ob taining a patent is not greater than that of a few years assessment work and from the time a claim owner has entered and paid for his land he it- relieved from the yearly expenditure upon his claim which is orten so great a tax upon his time andpockei Tli3 receipts of the receiver of the local land office for the purchasi- rice of th laud included in a min ing claim is virtually equivalent to ; patent and for all intents and pur poses, will serve him equally as well, until letters of patent are issued him Too little importance has hitherto been attached to U. S. patents here in Arizona, but now that our Terri tory has proven itself to the world rich in the precious metals, and so many thousands of dollars are beme attracted here for investment, its ought not to continue so. Owners of claims, no matter in what stagt of development, ought to hasten to procure patents, for their own good and protection as well as for the sat isfaction of investors. The other mining States and Territories are far ahead of Arizona in this respect, and it will not do for us any longer to undervalue the importance ol good mining titles or to postpone ob taining U. S. patents, Tucson Cit izen. 3Iiniii&; Proverbs. The drill has the only eye that can fathom the wealth of a prospect. Sharp drills and a hammer are like unto the business end of a wasp; they create a sensation when they commence moving. A fool and his hard earned assess ment inoney are soon parted. Stud harze poker hasn't temper enough to develop a bonanza. You can't knock a ten-foot hole in to a lode and then sit on the dump and talk about your "mine" without becoming a subject of ridicule. The ore purchaser's certificate of a five-ton-mill-run and his check for the. ducats will reponiniend your property where an expert's gush fails. A good trail to your prospect is a good thing if there is a good pros pect at the upper end of it, Busi ness people don't climb trails for scenery. An assay eertihcato tor 1,UUU ozs silver to a ton of 2,000 pounds about as valuable in the minin market as a ten thousand dollar Con federate bond on "Wall street. You can't sell a confectionery on stick of mint candy sample; neither can vou sell three hundred by one thousand five hundred feet of a min ing claim on a vestpockot specimen When you leave the prospect you have clung to five years to seek fortune in a new excitement, you follow the example of the greed dosr with his breaKiast in ins moutn who saw his shadow in the water. When you send a two thousand dollar superintendent from a grocery store in the East to work your prop ty m the mouutains, you have put the fire-end of the cigar in your mouth, and won't be a year in dis covering the iact. When vou tell a purchaser how your property can be developed by a lOO foot crostcut tunnel that will in- teisect the vein a thousand feet deep. you crosscut the trade and had bet ter cut your own throat. That class of idiots died last year. Colorado Alining Eegister. A Forest at the Bottom otXulce Talioe. The following is from the Carson Appeal: For some years past there has been a bank in Lake Tahoe, which in clear weather has generally been taken for moss formation. It lies at the right of the steamer's course between Tahoe City and the Tallac House, about two miles be low Idlewild. It looked as if a lot of trees had sunk to the bottom of the lake and that moss and slime had collected there until the whole pre sented a wavy, semi-transparent ap pearance about fifty feet below the surface. During the past few weeks the moss and debris has disappeared, and now when the water is clear a forest of pine trees can be plainly een with every limb and twig per tect. On Wednesday last some fish ermen went out there in a boat and owering some grappling irons se cured several splendid pieces of the petrifaction: One is a pine branch about three feet long which held a few feet from the eye, has the exact appearance of a pine branch just taken from a living treo and appar ently fresh and green, the brittle aess and weight distinguishing it flora the freshly cut branch. The forest occupies about two acres and seems like a forest immersed, except that its stoney branches are forever -till, and tall weeds and vines which cluster about the truuks of the giant rees are as motionless as the roclis. iio wind ever stirs this strange ver- lure, and the birds, which saner in ts branches centuries "ago, have iven way to nsh which swarni through the forests in thousands. armed mothers, who beliove in good Old fashioned customs in., bringing up or rather, taking down,piecocious children. To spank a child with glass shingle,particularly if sufficient force were used to splinter the shin gle, would be a very painful proceed ing. In fact, it might almost be called, if we were so depraved as to attempt such a pun, a veiy shingular affair. Referring to the glass shin gle as an implement of family discipline, we are reminded of what the inqusihvo little boy said to his mother: "Mother, what does trans atlantic mean?" "It means across tue Atlantic." "Yes, I thought that was what it meant. Now ma, if transatlantic means across the Atlan tic, I suppose that transparent means across the parent's knee, in which case I snpposo that 1 might call my self a transparent boy." The mother heaved a sigh. She saw through the transparent joke. Now whn the glass shingle comes into family use the unities will be admirably preserved by the application of the transparent shingle to the transpar ent boy. The obapue shingle is a is a thing of the past. Texas Sift-ings. We read now and then. of cases in which burglars are supposed to have rendered their victims unconscious by holding, cloths wet with chloro form to keyholes before entering an apartment. Of course the absurdity of such a fiction is sufficiently ap parent.

WHITSOX fc NICHOLS, PKOPBIETOKS, ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO. At&Msson's Store Main St., Mineral Park, Gents' Furnishing Goods, An interesting discovery has been made at Aleppo, where a party of en gineers making excavations beneath the citadel of the town have come up on a largo wrought iron breech load ing cannon, which must have been buried for at least 2o0 years. The most remarkable thing about the gun is that the breech mechanism is al most exactly similar to that used by lirupp at Esseu for the German ar tillery. The gun bears the name of its maker, Halebli Mnstapha Osia, and is in a fairly jrood condition. The Silver War. The present attack on the silver dollar is but a continuance of the old war for an exclusive gold currency. Five years ago the banks and Wall creot denounced silver, predicting hat it would drive every dollar of old out of the country 5 tljat specie payniont would be impossible: that the national credit would be destroy- d. The silver dollar was re&tqredi t was inace a legal tender for every note, bond or obligation of the Gov ernment. Never was the credit of the natiou as high as it has been since the restoration of tljo silver dollar. The 150,000,000 of silver dollars in the land do not seem to threaten the country with bankrupt cy. The silver coinage becomes day by day a stronger guarantee of financial stability. Instead of be coming a cause of alarm,, the silver coin has become more popular so popular that the necessity for any bank note currency diminishes as rapidly as the silver certificates upply the cqnnty with, a paper cur ency redeemable in coin.
