West of the river, the old town bas to
quaint and picturesque Mexican appear

streets, native people and customs, baud!
crafts and occupations; but tbe plaza and
all of the new town, east of the river, con
stituts a diatinctive American city. Tbe
streets ara wide and well graded, while
sidewalks abound, shaded with growing
trees. Three parks, filled with grass and
trees, add to tbe beauty and bealthfulneis
of the place. Handsome and well-filled
stores, beautiful residences, and Innumera
ble lawns, set in grass and adorned with
shrubbery and flowers, combine to pro
claim a cultured community, possessed of
all modern oomforts and conveniences.

Las Vkoas is the natural sanatorium of
the United States, combining more nat
l BHyaijteges thau any other place In
America. Her thermal waters are the
equal of the Hot Sprines of Arkansas,
while ber. climate is lnnnltelv superior,
There is no malaria, no excessive heat or
cold, no gnats, rats or mosquitoes. The
air is pure, dry, rarined, and highly elec
trified a certain cure for consumption, if
tbe disease be taken in time. The hot
waters are a specific for liver, skin, rbeu
matic and blood disorders. Her Montesu
ma hotel is tbe finest hostelry between
Chicago and California, and is situated in
a beautiful canyon, five miles from town,
where the Hot Springs, forty in number,
come Dolling to tne suriace.
The latitude is about the same as that ol
central Tennessee, while the altitude is
nearly 6,500 feet. Tbis combination gives
a peculiar, but most happy, result, in tbe
winter, during tbe day, the thermometer
seldom falls, In tbe shade, below forty de
grees, while It olten ruDS, in toe sunshine,
to sixty-five degrees or even more. Un
the other band, in the summer, the heat is
never oppressive, in tbe shade, and no
night is too warm for comfortable sleep,
under one or two blankets. Tbe sun will
shine nine days out of every ten, the year
round, Tbis, with the extreme dryness of I,

tbe air, and tbe consequent ozone, result-'

town, land-locked by mountain and mesa
these all conspire to produce an atmos
phere which is a balm to all diseases of tbe
respiratory orgaoB. Tbe percentage of
death from consumption is lower in New
Mexico tban it is anywhere else in the
United States; and no other place in New
Mexico excels Las Vegas in the salubrity
of its climate. Asthmatics experience

In tbe way of health and pleasure re

There are eight large wholesale bouses.

while tne volume or mis traae, ana tne
value of tbe stocks which they carry, can
not be duplicated west of Kansas uity and
south of Denver. Tbree merchants' brok
ers have selected the city as their distrib
utlng center, tbe amount of their yearly
sales exceeding, in the segregate, tbe com

New Mexico. The retail merchants, of
Las Vegas, are more numerous, and carry
larger and better stocks of Roods than do
tbe retail mercbants ot any other town in
this Territory or Arizona.

Santa Fe, Socorro, Dona Ana, Grant,
Cbaves, Lincoln -and Eddy, with parts of
Valencia and Bernalillo a country larger

Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the ex
traordinary distinction of having been
the only blood purifier allowed an ex
hibit at the World's fair, Chicago.
Manufacturers of otber Sarsaparillas
sought by every means to obtain
showing of their goods, but tbey were
all turned away under tbe application
of the rule forbidding- the entry of
patent medicines and nostrums. The
decision of tbe Wot Id's fair authorities
In favor of Ayer's Sarsaparilla was in
effeot as follows: "Ayer's Saisaparilla
is not a patent medioioe; It does not
belong to tne list oi nostrums, it is
here on its merits "
Charles Mills, instructor in the shops
at the agrfcultural college, left Las
Cruces for his old home at Danville,

Dlood-puriliers, though gradual, are
radical in tbeir ef act. Ayer's Sarsa
parilla is intended as a medicine only
and not a stimulant, excitant or never
age. Immediate results may not al
ways follow its use; but after a reason
able time, permanent benefit is certain
to be realized

Every week tbe BiZAR presents beau

doz, Baude, and Ciupuis illustrate and
engrave the newest designs from the finest
models in Paris and Berlin. New York
Fashions epitomise current styles In
New York. A fortnightly pattern-sheet
supplement with diagrams and directions
enables women to cut and make their own
gowns, and is of great value to tbe pro
fessional modiste as well as to the amateur
dressmaker. Children's Clothing receives
constant attention. Fashions for Men are
described in full detail by a mao-about-ton.
Our Carls Letter, by Kathahink
Da Kohest, is a sprightly weekly recital
of fashion, gossip, eni social doings in
Paris, given by a clever woman In au en
tertnining way.
Both the serials for 1896 are tbe work of
American women. Mrs. Gerald, by
Mahia Louise Fool, is a striking story ot
New England life. Mart E. Wilkins, in
Jerome, a oor Man, discusses the al
ways interesting probl' m of the re'atious
between labor and capital. Short stories
