A great rush is taking place and a big boom inaugurated in tDe Jarilla mountains. Unruly i day passes but parties are seen beaded lor tnat camp, snys a New Mexican exehaoge. From present indications every available foot of ground will be taken up very soon. There are some of the finest turquois" properties iu the Jarillas to be found in the territory, while a great many more are rich in copper and some have gold and silver in paying ' quantities. Oil Verge of a Strike. Ouray and San Miguel counties, Colorado, are on toe verge of a min ers' strike that may surpass the one now in progress in Leadville. The cause of it win be the importation of non union miners from Missouri into the Virginius mine and Revenue tunnel situated about nine miles westof Ouray There are 2500 miners in Ouray and San Miguel counties, most cf whom belongs to the Miners' union. Five thousand men are today at work upon the railroad connecting Acapeico with the City of Mexico. This state of Guerrero is the nucleus of the mountain systems of Mexico, and I do not think it any exaggeration to say that no other spot in the world contains the mineral wealth here massed together. Gold, silver, copper, lead and quicksilver make of the rugged surface of the state one solid crust of mineral, to such a degree that there is scarcely a moun tain stream which is not repulsively impregnated with metal.

The "Orient" has become so well known that it is not nec essary to describe it here in detail. It is a heater, an or nament to any room, and can be converted into a cook- stove. No other light is need ed when an "Orient" is in the room. It is the handsom est and most popular oil heat ing device ever invented. Over one hundred now in use in El Paso; and they are cheap.

El Paso, Texas COM M OX SEXSE 1'KAYER. Pertinent Remarks by Rev. Mr. Tardy of Palestine Last Night The series of protracted meetings in the Baptist church this week was given a new impetus last night by the ap pearance of the evangelist whom Mr. Millican has brought here from Pales tine, Texas, to aid him in the work of conversion, Rev. Mr. Tardy. This evangelist is a young man with re markable powers of address, an excel lent voice, and a common sense view of things that will surely win favor for him and his work among the El Paso public. He spoke last night in the Baptist church strongly advising constant ex ercise of wisdom aud thoughtfulness in offering petitions before the throne of divine grace. It was ill advised to pray all around the lots, as unfortunately is often the case. Pray with some spec ific aim and object in view, and focus the thinking p;wers directlyon the ob ject and aim of the desire. The speak er remembered one revival meeting where there were quite a number of penitents around the altar seeking their soul's salvation when he a?.ked an elderly brother to pray. The brother brayed a great long prayer for every thing in general, including a number of relatives he-had off in another state, and made only a very brief mention of the persons who were grouped at the altar looking for the saivation of the'r souls. The prayer commonly accepted as the Lord's prayer, was really the disciples' prayer. The real Lord's prayer was the memorable one the Sav ior offered in the Garden of Gethse mene, when he poured out his soul in such a marvel us effort. Mr. Tardy gave one excellent sug gestion as to the true nature of prayer when he said that prayer was the spirit of God coming down from the al mighty, entering into the soul of the petitioner, catching up the thoughts contained in the rtquests, and then carrying tbem up before the great throne for presentation totthe Father. It is a great mistake to be praying for things indiscriminately. Some people make it a point to pray for everything under the sun they can think of. Why, if the prayers of some people were to be answered literally, the petitioners would be scared pretty near to death. Pray for reasonable things, things you fpel, after mature and revised thought, you actually stand in need of most, arid tnen pray for these with all your might. Pray never doubting, and pray from the heart, and with the whole soul and strength. Pray to the Father as to a kind and indulgent parent, one who knows how to give eood rood gifts unto men. There is altogether too much lip service in prayer. Many men say prayers, whose forms they memorized when young, and were repeated with out conscious mental effort, to say nothing of the entire absence of spiri tual effort The speaker had heard prayers that were composed centuries ago rattled off in church and the Aniens responded to by men and wo men whose hearts were anything but right in the sight of God. Such pray ers are but a mocKery, and are any thinsr but acceptable at tho throne of I grace. Prayer must come from the heart to find favor with God. It must bathe spontaneous ou pouring of the spirit. Then we should not merely pray from a stern Eeuso of duty, but because of a natural desire to commune with our maker. If you have a friend whom you love dearly, do you uot take pleasure in talking to him? and in seeking his society? Then thy should we not take pleasure and be glad of the opportunity to commune with our maker in prayer? At the close of the meeting, all present shook hands with the evan gelist, and the pastor anuouncid that Mr. Tardy would speak the following nirht:also that on Friday and there after there would be day meetings in the church auditorium Wells Fargo Changes. Amada Andrews, who for vears has been manager of the several central department, embracing all line? tween the Mississippi river and be the Kocky mountains, was succeeded Jan. 1st by A.

"If I could vote"' she said, '"I wou be a democrat, because I am opposed to u-uj-ts. The tru-t is the big politic al question of the day. It destroys competition, and competition is the life of trade. Trusts keep young men with smill means from getting into busirnes in a small way. The public has the wrong idea about lighting trusts, however. My way would be to get after the individual who form a trust, instead of attacking the cor porations. The majority of the stock holders of a corporation are innocent of any wrong intent. They are against trusts, too. It the corporations are attuo-ted they sutler. Now, if instead of attacking the corporation, the pubUc would look for some vulnerat l-i points about the financial leaders of such schemes, the right partits would suf fer. The conspiracy charge might work in some cases. In other deals fraud could be discovered. There has been very few railroad reorganizations in which some fraud was not commit ted. The way to get at the trusts,' declared Mrs. Green, bringing her hand down on the table with empha sis. -"is to get after the leaders and then fight. Fight for a funeral. That's the way I do.
