X llrief Kesnme of the Work.
The Bureau of Immitfrution, through
ita effluieat eocretary, Max Front, of San-
Ja Fp, has just isauud a baudaorae hanil-
lymlt of U4 tiaiiea, showiug the reaouro
e, otl.. .eoloRy, hmtory,
utatinticS una in.... .rnnpects of this
Territory up to Deceniber 10, 18U3. The
work is embellished with tine engrav
ings of the principal citien, mountains,
valleys, mining oami, ranches, fruit
farms and Che numerous beautiful
scenes and pleasure resorts which abound
in this salubrious climate and future el
dorado of the southwest.
A flattering tribute is paid to Grant
County's wealth producing resources,
her incomparable sanitary advantages,
beautiful scenery, broad ranges, bright,
rapid rivers and enterprising peoplo.
We are credited with 2UÜ.0OÜ head of
cattle and numerous Hocks of sheep upon
our ranges; an hnnual production of
1,000,IXXJ in gold bullion and 800,000 in
silver ore, besides rich mines of lead,
copper, opals, turquoise and other rare
and valuable getnstones.
We tind the following in regard to
Silvor City:
The county sent is Silver City, situat
ed nt the fiKit of 1'inos Alton, in the
beautiful Chihuahua vulley. All the
northern half of the county and parts
of Socorro county and Arizona ere di
rectly tributary to it, and ilouttiln doz
ens of surrounding camps. It lies at
tlie end of a branch line of the Santa l'e
mad. and eiiova thn Ailvuntuon aoorii.
ing to every large supply depot. Its
bunks, court house, hospitals, stores,
publio vchools, hotels and other build
ings of a public and senii-pubha charac
ter would do credit to an eastern county
seat. Since the oening of the Santa
Kita copper mines in IHOu it has been a
town si t, but the energy of the last deo
rule has done more for its advancement
than all the previous years. Situated
as it is, surrounded by mills an-i concen
trators, almost in the very center of the
mining region, its stability and tirosper
ity are assured. Large business blocks
are built or projected, and, during the
year 18'J't about twenty-tive business
Lounes and handsome residences were
built within the city limits. It basa
number of civio and social organizations.
Its water-works, lying about two miles
from town, assure the city uot only of a
good and pure supply of water, but, as
there is a normal pleasure in the (ire
hydrants of 141 pounds to the inch, im
munity from the ruvages of that danger
ous element is certain. The water is
pumped to a high reservoir by powerful
machinery. It is taken from a tunnel
which drifts across bed rock the full
width of the valley. Under anything
libs ordinary circumstances the supply
it more than ample. Ituilding material
is very cheap as the surrounding moun
tains furnish lumber and stones of the
best charucter.
This method of developing a watttr
supply is worthy of a complete and tech
nical description. Spaoe however does
not permit this. The water is stopped
on tlie bed rock by sub-drains. The lo
cation is in a wide swale or shallow val
ley lending down from the Pinos Altos
towards Silver City. No water what
ever runs on the surface. This under
drainage is an important factor ia the
economic development of the arid weet.
Suvur City is , notable example. Not
only had she an ample supply for domes
tic Htnl sanitary puroses of a large oity,
nut dependent on chance showers, but
through her pumping system she is re
lieved as much as poemble from danger
of tirea
The court house, the hospitals, the
flue blocks thut line the business streets,
the churches, the commodious and zotu
fortable hotels, of which there are four,
give the city a metropolitan air. The
salubrious climate makes gxd the local
claim R a sanitarium. Situated Ht
about 6,000 feet elevation, at about 30
clef reos 15 seconds north latitude, pro
tected by encircling mountains, all the
conditions are perfect for the preserva
tion of health or the restoration of the
iu valid to Bonn J physical existence. The
springs are eurly and winters mil. I, while
tlie summers are never to. rid. The lat
itude is the same as that of the north
ern ooaat if the (Julf of Mexico, but the
heat is teuiKred by an elevation of
more tlan a mile aUive the sea. The
air is ozonated, and the intluence of the
tiii:e foroaU is ft)t like balmiiu iu every
breath. The invalid who settles here
will ilu.J his tntoieet io life reviving. 11a

one bright morning several people who

washed away the nock of earth which

The boundary line between Kentucky

complicated down about Island No. 1 0,
owing to the peculiar bend in the Mis

also serve to mix matters. The biting

Qaartorly Review.
People Wko Eat Bal.
It is difficult toimagine people eating
hair, but there are many, especially
girls and young womon, who do so, as
experience proves. Doctors conducting
post mortem examinations have been
surprised to find a largo quantity of
hair in the stomach of the deceased per
son.
Not long ago an English medical
man found aa vsaca as four pounds of
hair In ths stoma-.: c4 voaiau about
80 years old, aud similar cases have
been oficial !y reported from various
parts of the world.
Dr. Ewaim lately performed an oper
ation for tumor, when, to his astonish
ment, the cause of complaint was a
um of hair weighing between four
and five pounds. .

Everybody knows that the earth makes

In each hours. Hut few, however,
have any idea of the hith rate of speed
at which such an iuiuicnae hall must

making one revolution in a day and a

pace which the old earth keeps up year
after year may be had by comparing its
speed to tliut of a cannon bull fteud f toin

ent velocity ever attained by such a mis

An Indignant Old ldy.
The car storped, and "on climbed an
elaborately dressod lady, followed by a
nurse girl bearing a small boy in her
arms. The lady looked entirely too
young to be the boy's mother and was
dressed in style fecoining rather a
young girl. In addition the paid no at
tention whatever to the infant and
nurse, who took a scat behind her, and
thn spectators on the car began to think
that they had been deceived in Imagining
that there was any relation between
them. Frescntly she raised her daintily
gloved hand and signaled the conductor
to stop. Then the stepped gracefully oft
and made her way to -the curb. Look
ing back indiffereutly, she suld;
"June, bring the boy"
The boy evidently did not want to
come. Ee clung to the scat in spite of
the nurse, whereat the fin da liocle
mother called :
"Boy boy come along!"
And tho old lady on the back seat
sniffed Indignantly and said:

Ohio neighbors a testy old fellow who
kept a email truck furiu. During Mr.
Hayes' fonr years in the White House,
on one of his visits borne, he passed this
old man's farm and found him planting
potatoes. The president, being some
what of a fui mor himself, noticed some
eccentricity in his neighbor's style of
planting, and after a little chat called
attention to it The old man defended
his method, and finally Mr. Hayes said
as he ctarted along, "Well, I don't think
yon will pet the bet kind of a crop if
yon plant in that manner. ' The farmer
rested his elbov. I on the fence. "They

The memoirs of General Marbnt upon
the first French empire relate thut, on
the occasion of a very formal distribu
tion of rewards made by Napoleon before
BatUbon, an old grenadier came forward
and demanded somewhat sharply, to the
astonishment of all, a cross of the Le
gion of Honor.
"But what have you done?" said Na
poleón. "Why, sire," said tlie soldier. "It
was I who, in the desert of Yafa, when
It was terribly hot and you were parched
with thirst, brought yon a watermelon,"
"Thank you," said Napoleon, "but a
watermelon for a general is not worth a
cross of the Legion of Honor."
The grenadier flew into a violent
rage. "Well, tbeu," ha shouted, "I
tnpposetbat the seven wounds that I got
at Areola and at Lodl and at Austerlits
and at Friedland go for nothing, ebf My
11 campaigns in Italy, In Egypt, in

In tbo opinion of Professor Asaph
null, as recently expressed, the problem
of tho physical constitution of tho moon
is one that yet remains to be solved. Of
the "craters," scattered all over her sur
face, the volcanic theory of formation
fulls, he tbluks, to be satisfactory. An
other notion to which he refers is that,
ages ago, the moon was surrounded by
warms of "moonlcts," which eventual
ly were precipitated upon the moon'i
surface, forming the orators now seen.
ThuH, the Mare Imbriuui was created
by the impact of a huge moonlet, 80
miles in diameter, which, in striking,
was raised to such a high temperatura

hole or crater being formed where it

distance, partly filling up other craters;
fragments flew to distances of a thou

Fatalities resulting from "blowing

time to get the right effects from ona
month to six. The wood needs to be sea
soned for a period of nearly teven years.
Rich, deep Spanish mahogany is used,
pollard oak, ebony and satin wood.
Tablea are not always covered in
green. Blue is somet í rue used and a
pure olive preen. The late Prince Leo
pold was the first to make use of the
latter color, and olive green is known
today iu the billiard world as Princa
Leopold's color,
Tho balls must be well seasoned bo
fore they are used for play. Manufac
turers have incubators in which to store
them that thoy may nndergo thn drying
process. Some incubators will hold fully
8,000 balls. When they are first made,
thoy are "green," Solid ivory is the
only satisfactory material of which to
make them; "artificial balls" (those
made of composition) are much heavier
and do not wear well. English makora,
to give the red balls a perfect color,
