For example. It would be exceedingly uiiwlsa to send during the winter months a patient from the Cult states to any plce colder than bllvcr City or Las Cruces, and equally so to have him go dur ing the summer months to La Cruces, Boeorro or Albuquerque We now com to Bliver City, a mining town of i.ooo Inhabitants, In the southwestern portion of the Territory, with an elevation of 6,000 feet . It Is Incaled partly on the hillsides and partly In an arroyo 01 open valley Immediately surround ed by hills about feet higher than the town, aud more remotely by mountains on the north- some 2,noo fret higher. The natural fall of the main street tk2i feot to the mile. Its peculiar location gives I a f-reat advantage over other New Mexican towns, more particularly Albu querque. Socorro and Ijis Cruces, Inasmuch as surronndlng hills cut off the hard winds thntre so duuigreeable nt all seasons on account of the UiLit they carry, but more particularly In winter, when the element of.cold Is a serious considera tion. Dust and wind storms are much less common '-t Silver City than in the valley of the Itlo Crandc, and only an Invalid can testify to the dlsagiccabloness of such conditions. The water for tha supply of the town Is Intercepted by a sort of underground dam about a mile above, and Is supplied In Iron pipes. Mice that which Is procured from wells along the Klo tirande It Is "hard," and has a slightly alkaline txsto, and without being at all an Ideal drinking water. It serves Its purpose, and has never been known to produce sickness. In a valley about six miles long, above the waterworks, there are but two or tliree residences, ko the danger from contamination from animal excreta Is at a minlmtom. The following figures given by Profeaor W O. Waring, who has analysed tho water, show that It 1st stierlor to that which supplies the city of Denver; nl.Jits im alunys c ol.

Atmospheric moisture Is due In part to vior brought by the winds from dNtnrit bodies of water, but chiefly to Hint drawn up by the sun from the damp soil or the standing or running water of a given locality. We have seen already tbnt the Inns have Ik-cii deprived of most of tlieir miVs'.'ire before r-.ehlnir New Mexico, and can therefore contribuí but IIUlc to its humidity, Examining the topography of the country we find no lakes or standing pools about Hilver City while the nearest river, the Gila, Is tlilrty-llve miles away. Accurate figures for comparing prominent plactR for the same year are difficult to obtnln. but the following will show the advantages In humidity posvessed by Hilver City over the twe great resorts on tho eastern aud wesinrn coasts of the United Btatcs Jacksonville and 8an Diego: Moan relative humidity for the year ending July 1, liinl 1 1 were a few years ac victims of nsthena brorl,. br.ne 1,'IU, ll eioent phthisis, or unre lve. rmrvimnioa. f'siine were snt7.

A mistake made by many Is In expecting too much of tilt' climate, aud they either remain III door too much, taking little exerrlso, or over exert themselves In d inning or other amuse ments, sM'ndlng too much time out doors on cold ninlits. Ill these lil;h altitude the sou Is the grent life giver, whose movement should bo carefully watched, .vid 110 liuialld should venture abroad without bis companionship.

We know of a young man with tuberculosis of tho lung who walked seven miles to a dance after night- fnll twice, a week. In less toan six nwut'i! after bis coming be wu taken home a corpse. An other fatal caw was a young man with the same disease who contracted pneumonia by being caught In a hailstorm while hunting in winter hljih up In the Organ mountain. Other eases ? :fcht be mentioned, but they only go to show that patients can not tie cured In spite of themselves even In New Mexico. Silver Clly.N. M Haulii l'c, N. M San Diego, Cal ,laek-on tile.

The conditions are found only In high fnland altitudes, and Hilver City Is 0,000 above aud many hundreds Of miles away from the sea Patients wtth asthma, bronchitis or Incipient phthisis may come to Hllvor City direct without fear of danger from the altitude, but If the heart Is weak, or tt hemorrhage has been very recent, It were well to stop over for a month at El I'aso or Ijis Cruces, with altitude of 8.764 feet and 4.000 feet respectively. Tho weaker the patient ihe more prolonged'tshnuld be his lourney to high altitudes. The opinion of medical men aa to the effect of the climate of New Mexico upon patients with organic heart disease vary considerably, but the writer Is with the majority when he advises such patient not to go higher than 4,000 feet 0 to put It more practically, no further north than Ias Cruces or La Mesilla. The render will observe that with one exception the altitude of the stations here given Increases from south to north causing a much more marked dlfBcrence of temperature than would be produced by latitude alono, and the advantages of climate enjoyed by Hilver City are due In part to tho fact that while It Is nearly as far south as Las Cruces It has an altitude of 2,000 feet more.

Iu a short timo after the disappearance of the floods the atmosphere and street are dry acaln as before. Unless 11 be PanU Ye, there Is pro bably uo city In New Mexico to which are ap plicable the following conclusions of Dr. buch anan, who has Investlgatasd the subject of phthisis In Hurrey, Kent and Husnex, England ; "Thole Is less phthisis among populations living on pervious soil than among populations living on Impervlou soil. 'There is lens phthisis among persons living on higu-lyliig pervious soils than among popula tion living on low lying pervious soils. "There 1 less phthisis among populations living on sloping Impervious soils than among population living on llat Impervious soils." lint the chief advantage that Silver City pos sesv:s over other places In New Mexico Is the fact that her climate la suiUible to the Invalid at all season of the year. If bu Is cold In winter be has but to walk lu the sun to become warm again, aud If too hut In summer lie need ouly seek the shade to And a comfortable coolness; but It may be safely said that there are not ten days lu the year lu whhti an invalid who Is able to leave the bouse ca.inot spend mint of his time In the open air. This point of life lu tlie oien air must be accentuated, for ll has been truly said that all cliinalt-s are tlie same lu doors. ltt-ferrltig to the figures given we see that In the summer of IbVi Hilver City was the third euolert of the six towns of which we bave re. port, tt man ta-inpc raturo being 71 8 deg.

Upon this subject Dr. F. W. Seward of Goshen N. V., has said in au article read in 1KM before the American Health Uesort Association:- Lessened Induction of electric fluid rise to a more positive state of the body. A pos itive state Is one of energy, functional activity, and consequently of Increased nutrition and strength. It lias been demonstrated within a comparatively recent date that men employed about electrical works, and particularly on elec tric streut cars, or where there is a large Induc tion of electric fluid, liave.experleiieed Immunity in ajlarge degree from chronic ailments. The atmosphere Immediately about them Is heavily charged with electricity, hence that within does not now from them. 'Virtue' has uot gone out of them. It la a question If tlie enervation we experience from warm, damp weather Is not largely duo to the rapid outflow of electric, cur rent, or lu other words, to a mere negative state of the system. Contrast with this enervation tie stimulating Influence of a clear, crisp atmos phere, when the humidity Is congealed and the air becomes a less perfect conductor. In studying the climatology of our country from thisstandpoliit.aud admitting tho value of the above mentioned attributes, as one must, I in ready to afllriu that In no other section will the perfection of these be so nearly lound, or approached, as In New Mexico." The present writer recalls several occasions during the past winter when, alter a walk In the hills about Silver City, he shook hands with per sons causing them to start at the electric shock received In the touch of fingers. Exercising In the dry air he fiad become clmrgcd with elec tricity, and ou tlie first contact hud discharged the fluid like the shock from a Leydun Jar, A lady residing in Silver City, who basa heavy suit of hair which she is fond of having combed by a companion, lias been compelled to forego this process lu cold weather ou account of the burning ptiln produced by IL To those who have faith lu the efficacy of pine foreats. it may bo said that the mountains about Sliver Cltv are covered with these trees, and may be reached In a fifteen minutes walk to the north, east or wont. The hills of the town priqier aro almost without trees, being covered with bear grass and varieties of the maguey plaut. Closer In are large native Cottonwood trees, which afford excellent shade, aud are lound throughout the country wherever there is human hubitution. The accomodations are good, as to board and lodglug, and there are several well conducted rehUiiiranU in the town. The hills abound lu doves, wild pigeons, quail and nibbits, aud further out lu the mountains are bear, deer and auudope. Duck hunters who go as far as the Gila river are usually rewarded w ith plenty of game. The roads tJiout Hilver City are for the most pail quite good and are used by a number of persons of all ages aud both sexes w hulhave bl cycles. In endorsing Sliver City It baa been the Intent ion of the writer to show at the same tune the advantages of climate poasosaed by the whule Territory, holding up the former place more as a type of New Mexican resort rather than the sole desirable one. Silver City has no one prop erty of climate lu which It Is uot equaled by some other locality, and It is lu the lout tiuumblt alone that It can claim lis superiority. Much has boon written of Colorado as a resort for consumptive and It deserves much of the praise It has received, as Is evidenced by the number of cures which have taken place there, but the Intense cold uf Its winter climate aud tlie many days, relatively. In wliicl snow lie upon the ground, are causing Invalids to look fui thur south for a balmier climate. New Mux leo possesses all the advantages claimed for Colorado, with the added one of a more temper ate winter. The hot springs which abound lu all portions of the Turnlory have bcru found of great value lu rheuinatlo diseases, and ruad only to be known to be patronized. This latter remark will apply to all of New Mexico, which has until recently, been regarded as little better than a desert, but which In becoming known to the piofi sslou as Hjsesslug advantages to tho patient r.ith weak lungs that are not equaled any w nero 1,1 me i.uuuj stales, and which arc not excelled, pel haps, uyhcie In the eiillted world.

Stringing Piolares. The one thing that is unforgivable In picture hanging la to string them along the walls in a lino. Thuir loneliness is pitiable. Next to that crime is the one cf arranging cxaotly symmetrical groups, suggestive of nothing so much a lesson in geometry. Uroup pic tures, group them graoef ally, but don't, when one has succeeded in making a graceful bunch on one side of tho fire place, reproduce it eaaotly on the other side. According to one who speaks with the emphasis of authority, dolicately framed watei colors are the only proper things for the drawing room, magnifi cent olla for the library and ball, and etchings and engravings for the dining room. Meantime those who do as they fdeuee will continue to bang their etch nga, water colors and oils exactly where thoy will gain most pleasure from them, taking card only not to place side by aide ridiculously inharmonious things. The smaller the ploture, or the more full of detail, the nearer the level of the eye it should bang. Sometimes two parallel wires are brought straight up to separate books on the picture mold ing, but generally the old fashioned an gla of wire Is niado. Gold and silver wires are generally used, but It is said (bat small steel and iron chains are to be o sed this winter for banging dark framed engravings and etchings. Soms of the daintier pictures, instead of be ing bung from the moldings, bave wires stretched tightly across the back and are caught invisibly on small screws. Now York Journal.
