Buy, however, that the records of a
number of yearB fchow that th
precipitation at I-as Cruces in, if
nnythinfr, h little led than it is at

Coming to tho Fjirir;,' of IH'Xi,

Ab to tí ni pe ral uro wc find that,
B3 ill tho unmrner and autumn, it id
tho third coolest of the cjroup.
From what wo have Keen, then,
it is apparent that Silver City pos
sesses advantages of temperature
for tho four seasons superior to
tho other places considered.
Though cool in winter it is not
t o cold for the invalid to venturo
out, nud though warm during
portions of tho summer (Juue) it
is plcasuut in the thado, and the
nights aro always cool. Suustroko
ia unknown in New Mexico. The
dryness of tho tliniato prevents
excessive jer?pirntion, a specie of
auuoycnco so common in other
countries, tho skin being always
dry except after unusual exercise.
This feature, tho dryness of tho
climate, is apparent to the strnuger
at every turn. IIo sees it in tho
uncrumbled adobe walls built by
Apaeue ana i ueoto Indians over
two hundred years ago, and in the
perfectly preserved household
articles left by CliiT-Ihvollera in
prehistoric times. IIo feels it in
tlio dryucss of his lips in winter,
and tho stitTness of his starched
collar in June. He notices that if
his ink bottle id not corked he is
writing from n paste instead of a
fluid, that his leather goods need
an unusual amount of oiling, and
Lis newspaper is brittle and easily
torn. Tho absence of dew permits
camping-out moro than half the
year, a sueiter lie'injj unnecessary
daring tlio summer mouths to
those who have a blanket in which
to wrap themselves.
Atmospheric moisture is due in
part to vapor brought by the
winds from distant bodies of
water, but chiefly to that drawn uj
by tho sun from the damp soil or
the standing or running water of a
given locality. "We have seen al
ready that tho w inds havo been
deprived of most of their moisture
before reaching New Mexico, and
can therefore contribute but littl
to its humidity. Examining the
toiography of tho country we
find no lakes or standing pool
about Silver City, while tho near
est river, tho Gila, is thirty-live
miles a way.

It is not intended here to provo
or expand upon tho five requisito
conditions laid down by Dr. Doui
eon, eud for further information
tho reader is referred to the article
already quoted.
Thtfao conditions aro found only
ia high inland altitudes, and fcil
ver City is C.&OO above and many
hundreds of milts away from tho
Bea.

t'.ent tho more prolonged should
be his journey to high altitudes.
Tho opinions of medical men as
to th ib ct of the elimato of New
Mexico upon patients with organic
heart disenso vary considerably,
but tho writer is with tho major
ity when ho advises such patients
not to go higher than 4,000 feet,
or, to put it nioro practically, no
further north than Las Cruces or
La Mesilla.
Tho reader will observe that
with one exception tho altitude of
the st'itiotis hero given increases
from south to north, causing a
much more marked difference ef
torn perat uro than would bn pro
duced by latitude alone; and the
advantages of elimato enjoyed by
Silver City are duo in part to the
fact that while it is nearly as fur
south as Las Cruces it has an alti
tude of '2,000 feet more.
An interesting feature of tho
climate of New Mexico, upon
which sufficient stress has uotlieen
laid, is the increased electrical ten
sion of the body experienced i'i
tho cold days of winter. The
therapeutic effect of this is far
reaching, inasmuch as it involves
other forms of debility than that
produced by pulmonary disease,
and more particularly diseases of
tho nervous system.
Upon this subject Dr. F. W.
Seward of Godien, N. Y., has said
in an article read in 1S02 before
the American Health Itcsort Asso
"Lessened induction of electric
11 11 id gives rise to a more positive
state of tho body. A positive state
is 0110 of energy, functional activ
ity, and consequently of increased
nutrition and strength. Jt has
een elenionstrated within a com
paratively recent dato that men
employed about electrical works,
and particularly on electric street
cars, or where there is a largo in
duction of electric fluid, havo ex
perienced immunity in a largo de
gree from chronic ailments. Ttie
atmosphere immediately about
them is heavily cnargol with elec
tricity, hence that within eloes not
flow from them. 'Virtue' has not
gone out of them. It is a ques
tion it tho enervation we experi
ence from warm, damp weather is
not largely due to tho rapid out
flow of electric current, or in other
words, to a mero negative etate of
the system. Contrast with this
nervation the stimulating influ
ence of a cold, clear, crisp atmos
phere, when tho humidity is con
Lrcaled and tho air becomes a les3
perfect conductor.
In Btudyinfr the climalolo"y of
our country from this standpoint
and admitting the value of the
above mentioned attributes, as on
must, I am ready to affirm that in
no other seetiou will the perfect
ion of these be so nearly found, or
apprtiaehcd, as in New Mexico.
The present writer recalls scy
(ral occasions during tho past win
ter when, afier a walk in tho hills
about Silver City, he shook hands
with persons causing thorn to start
at the electric shock received in
tlio touch of lingers. J-,xer-.isiug

charged with electricity, and on
tho first contact had dischargee

A lady residing in Silver City
who has n heavy suit of hair which
6ho is fond of having combed by a
companion, has been compelled to
fore'go this process in Cold weathe
on account of the buruiug pain
produced by it.
To those who have faith in the
eillcuey of pino forests, it may be
said that the mountains about Sil

there is human habitation.

In rndorsing Silver City it hn.3
been tho intentiou of tho writer to
show at the same time the advan
tages of climate possessed by the
whole territory, holding up the
former plnco more rs a type of
New Mexican resorts, rather than
the solo desirable one. Silver City
has no erne property of climate iu
which it is not equaled by some
other locality, and it is in the tout
ensemble alone that it can claim
its superiority.
Much has been written of Colo
rado as a report lor consumptives
and it deserves much of the praise
it has received, as is evidenced by
tho many cures that have taken
place there, but tho intenso cold of
its winter climate and tho many
lays, relatively, in which snow lies
upon tho ground, nre causing iuva-
ds to look further south for a
balmier climate. New Mexico
pofsess all the advantages claimed
for Colorado, with the added ouo
f a moro temperate winter.
The hot spring.? which abound
1 . Mil i
in all portions or iuo territory
iovo been found of great value in
rheumatic diseases, and need only
to be known to bo patronizenl.
This latter remark will apply to
all of New Mexico, which has, un
til recently, been regarded as lit
tle better than a desert, but which
is becoming known to tho profess
ion as possessing advantages to
the patient with weak lungs that
are not equaled anywhere in the
United Slaters, ami which are not
excelled, perhaps, auyhero in the
civ ilized world.
The class of patients receiving
most benefit in New Mexico are',
naturally, those that are able to
get about and receive all tho bene
fits of sunlight and moderate exor
cise, lucre are hundreds ol
íealthy persons in tho territory
to-day who were a few years ago
victims of asthma, chronic bronchi
tis, iucipent phthisis, or unre-
solveel pneumonia. Some were
sufferers from marked cases of
phthisis with cavities, and were
carried to their boarding places on
chairs or hi a stretcher. These, of
course, aro fewer in number, but
they form a large percentage.
Many phthisical patients have
come out only to die, harm
waiteel too long before taking tho
final step of chango of climate,
which for this reason proves only
too often a fatal step.
Asthmatics gain comfort imme
diately in this clear, pure air, and
persons who have run down rapid
ly seem to pick up flesh equally as
fast. Chronic cases improve more
slow ly but steadily.
A mistake made by many is in
oxTjectiug too much of tho elimato,
and they either romein in eloors
too much, taking little exercise, or
over-exert themselves in dancing
or other amusements, spending
loo mucli timo out-doors ou col
nights.
Iu thcso high alitudes tho sun is
the great life-giver,whoso move
ments should bo carefully watched
and no invalid should venture
abroad without his companionship,
lolly in matters or common
sonso has caused the loss of many
lives ia this region. Wo know oí
a young man with tuberculosis of
tho lungs who walked seven miles
to a dance after nightfall twice
week. Ih less than six months
after his coming ho was taken
home a corpse. Another fata
caso was a young man with tho
samo disease who contracted pueu
mouia by being caught in a hail
storm while hauling in winter
high up in tho Organ mountains.
Other causes might bo mentioned
but they only go to show that pa
tients can not bo cured in spite o
themselves even in New Mexico.

to board and lodging, and there

of thousands of dollars have been
sunk in this war. The new rates
established aro about 23 per cent

fore the cut, and but a small per
centage alovo those now prevail

A City of Clutter and Slioutlnj unci Untying
of Ioultt-yft,
Naples is n r.oi.y city, not with the
heavy rumble of Broadway, but tho
clatter of light vehicles and tho pat-
tor of little feet of horses and don
ioys. The chout '-oh-a-a a-a" of
drivers rinrm through tho streets like
tho cry of an avenging demon, and
the incessantly cracking whips sound
like the Fourth of July. Evorybody
talks loud and on a high key as
though in a war of words. Venders
hawk their wares with a yell which,
though in musical tones, is piercing.
One exception to the general noiso
is in the barbers shop, where a half
dozen men work in solemn silence,
not discussing weather, politics or
scandal with their victims. It seemed
unnatural and grewsomo. I havo
heard only one hand organ, and that
was an antique. Probably the others
have emigrated to America. One un
usual noiso will attract attention. I
exploded ouo of my dynamite sneezes
on tho Toledo ono day. It mado a
sensation in the midt cf tho busy
trafTic, perhaps because there has
been so mucii said about anarchist
bombs lately. Ily cabman jumped
a little, but quickly recovered him
self and said, "Vostra saluto, sig-
nore." Sometimes tho church bell
rings violently us though for a fire.
One looks for tho engines, but it is
only a funeral, and the white clothed
bearers, v.rith holes cut for eyes in
their masks, come round a corner
with tho painted or embroidered cat
afalque on their shoulders, preceded
by tho priests and acolytes.
Above all noises the donkey s fre
quent bray prevails. I cannot pet
used to it. It always sounds hko
something else. In church ono Sun
day I thought I heard an old well
windlass groaning and squeaking
vith its roughly turning axle. Poor,
dear little donkeys! If they get any
comfort out of their braying, they aro
welcome to it. for it is about all tho
comfort they have. When ono sees
a littlo fellow, tho sizo of a ce.lf, pull
ing a good load of furniture and a
lazy master on a big two wheeled
cart, or nine heavy trunks and two
men, or another with paniers and a
boy twisting Lis tail, it seems like a
very human voice of patient woo and
rebuke that comes out in that bray.
I do not see what Ni'plc-s could do
without tho;,o nimble littlo feet trot
ting up and down her hills. Tho
donkey's foot iscarvc-d on the handle
of her souvenir spoons us a token of
gratitude perhaps. liar tford Cou

Shooting Stars.
Very careful observations havo
been mado from time to timo with a
view to ascertaining tho height of
shooting stars above the earth at
their appearance and disappearance,
Perhaps tho most successful attempt
of this kiiid was that mado in thi3
country on tho occasion of tho rnete
oric shower iu November, 1807. Tho
lightninglike rapidity with which
tho meteors darted through their
courso rendered it impossible to oh
serve them with astronomical pre
cisión, but the general conclusion ar
rived at was that they were first seen
at au average height of 75 miles,
There was no positive evidence that

much greater than ICO miles. Brook

The brief announcement tho other day
that the White Kt:ir line steaniHliin T.Ia
joctic, drawing 21 feet, had passed over
the bar at Liverpool with three feet of
water under her koel shows that the
great, work of removing the chief im
pediment to navigation in tho Mersey is
nearly accomplished. The engineers of
the Liverr-ool dock board stato that un
der the worst possible conditions there
is a depth cf 23 feet of water over the
bar, the great sandbank having been cut
down no less tliun nine feot, and tha
debris bodily transported and damped
far from the channel on a site where it
can do no posible harm.
During tho three years that the work
has beeu goii-gon no less than 8,383,000
tons of sand have been removed. Allow
ing tlio rcAfh tiii8iireineiit of a hundred
weight ef g.ind to a cubic foot, it appears
that no loas than T.SL'S.feHS cubic yardaof
material have been eh) 1 led. This is said to
be a record in the matter of d reding
operations, and many other startling; fig
ures are quoted.
Duriug a recent week, for iiiRtnnce,
the three dredgers working at the bar
removed no less than 155,000 tons of
saud, a machino called the Lirancker

A ROACH IN HIS HEAD.
It CrnTTle4 Into tlio Man' Tar, Ate Its Way
Through the llrnui and IlalscJ Family.
A man with a nest of cockroaches in
hia head pre.'cnt.,d himself at tho Emer
gency hoppitid in Washington recently.
Stories havo often been told ol eualies
and frogs in human etomaclia An in
stance in regard to the habit; of animals
which la even moro peculiar cama to
light about a week ago. Cuse3 have often
been noticed where brigs have entered
tho oar and ennsed excruciating paiu by
eating tho doliente membranes and tis
sues of tho inner oar beforo they coulo
bo driven out Dnt this is tho first c.-.so
where a roach was permitted to remain
in the cor long enough to lay its eggs
and hatch its yonng.
Ocorge Woods, who was tho patient,
a young man of about 20, i.i employed
on an oyster boat Like many other
boats, this one was iufostod with big
black coclcroaencs. Une nignt wmid
Woods was asleep a roach crept Into hla
ear and lodged itself just far euongh In
side to be out of reach. Woods felt it
thcro next morning, but being vuiablo to
poko it out with hia finger ho permitted
it to remrrin, thinking her roachship
would tiro of her quarters and move out
But the roach, either because it got in
head first and could not turn around
and get out, or bccaw,o it found tlio ac
commodations exceedingly comfortable,
instead of getting out proceeded to make
its nest right thore in the man's ear.
Finally it started to tufad through the
head. As it af terw.ird was shown on in
vestigation, tho roach had eaten its way
through tho channel to the tympanum
and through tho chum itself. Ilcro, it
seems, it gave np investigations and
from somo cause or other died. W hca
Wood found that he was deaf in tho
right ear, he thought ho had better have
the matter looked luto, so ho toek ad
vantage of his boat being lu Washing
ton to visit the hospital. Win n Dr.
Johnson washed oat tho ear, in arl.lii.inri
to the body of the defunct roach a n.-ia-ber
of little roaches and somo eg.;-- which
bad failed to hatch wore removed.-

Far from having .any objection to an
American millionaire spending Lis
money with us, I should be delighted if
all large owners of honse property in
New York were to follow the example
of Mr. Astor. I feel indeed personally
obliged to him, for he próvidos me with
a well edited ma; aziuo and newBpnper,
the latter, I thuuld imagine, costing
more than the penny which I pay for it
Bnt my gratitude does not quite blind
mo to the ludicrous abrnrdity of an
American citizen devoting his cif-ans to
the laudation of an intititutiou like that
of hereditary leidnlators and to preach
ing tint England bhould augment the
size of her empire. Loudon Truth.
Tlmothr Dyer' Hare Record.
A rare record ia boasted by Mr. Tim
othy Dyer of Vinal Haven, Mo. , who is
80 years of age. Until, ho was 18 years
old he never wore a shoe. He has never
rid Juit. ou a onr, and but once on a steam
boat lie has never en 'cored a tavern,
never quarreled with any ono, and a
l!trler has never bhavud him. And yut
his liíü has not been destitute of excite
ment, for only huit summer the old fel
low pulled in unaided a halibut wuigh
ing three times as much as ho does.
