Th Bureau of Immigration, through It í .íiVstoat ocrery, al ax Froat, of Ran tiFe, haa juat lsaud a hanjaome haud Cook of 344 pngoH, ahowing the remouro-' f ea, olimale, neography, gr-ology, history, atintioa and future pruKcU of this -itory up to December 15, 181)0. The '.k ia embeüiehed with due engrav- intra of the principal oitiea, mountain, alleya, mining campa, ranchea, fruit farma and the numerous beautiful cenee and pleasure resorts which abound Id this salabrioua climate and future el dorado '1 the southwest. A Datterinsr tribute ia paid to Grant County's wealth produuing resources, her incomparable snuitnry advantages, beautiful scenery, broad ranges, bright, rapid rivers and enterprising people. Ave are credited with iftX),0u0 head ot cattle and numerous Hocks of sheep upon our ranges; an annual . production of $1,000,000 in gold bullion and $800,000 in silver ore, besides rich mines of lead, coper, opals, turquoise and other rare and valuable geinstones. We find the following in regard to Silver City: The county seat is Silver City, situat ed at the foot of Pinoa Altos, id the beautiful Chihuahua valley. All the northern half of the county and parts of Sooorro county and Arizona are di rectly tributary to it, and it oulths doz ens ot surrouuuincr cauum. It lies at the end of a branch line of the Santa Fe road,and emjnys the advantages accru ing to every large supply depot. IUt banks, court bouse, hospitals, stores, publio schools, hotels auu other build iiigs of a publio and semi-pubho charac ter would do credit to an eastern oouoly aeat. Sinos the oponing ot the Santa Kits oopper minea in 1600 it haa been town site, but the energy ot the last deo ade has done more for its advancement than all the previous y en re. Situated aa it ia, surrounded by mills and concen trators, almost in the very center of .the mining region, its stability acd prosper ity are assured. Large busies blocks are built or projected, and during the year 1803 about twenty-five business nouses and handsome roeidenoee were built within the oity limits. It bas number of civic and social organization. Its water-works, lying about two miles from town, assure the city not only of good and pure supply ot water, but, as there is a normal pieewur in the fire hydrants ot 144 pounds to the inch, im munity from the ravages 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 drifta across -bed rock the full width ot the valley. Under anything like ordinary oiroumstancea the supply is more than ample. Building material is very cheap as the surrounding moun tains f urniah lumber and stonee of the best ehsriter. This method of developing a water supply ia worthy of a complete and tech nical description. Space however does not permit this. The water ia iowm1 on the bed rock by sub-drains. The lo cation is in a wide swale or shallow val ley leading down from the l'icos Altos towards bilver City. No water what ever rune on the aurface. This under drainage is an important factor in the "-viic development of the arid west. Silver City is a notable eiample. Not only haa she an ample supply for domes tic end sanitary purpoeea of a lsrge oity, ot dependent on chance ahowera, but through ber pumping system she is re lieved aa much as potwiible from danger of tires. The court bouse, the hospitals, the flue blocks that line the buaiues streeta, the churches, the commodious and sou forUble hotels, of which there are four, give the city a metroiolitan air. The salubrious climate makes good the local claim as a sanitarium. Situated at about 6,000 feet elevation, at about 3o d "frees 13 seconds north latitude, pro tected by encircling mountains, all the conditions are perfect for the preserva tion of health or the reetomtion of the invalid to eouuJ physical existence. The springs are early and w Inter mild, while the summers are never torrid. The lat itude is the same as that ot the north ern count of the (iulf of Mexico, but the heat is tempered by aa elevation of mere than a mile aliove the sea. Th air is ozooated, and the influence of the time forests is felt like buleam in every breath. The invs'id who settles her will find his interest in life reviving. 11 will tm with a brainy, culturen! popu lace, and in a abort time will find him self dx'iiaeiiig huaiottas. He will find ground ckiehp and material plentiful to build a hoinu, to which purpose the uui vtal hospitality of the people Impel I un, and in a ahoit time he will f l lmcboif a uat-ful menilwt ot a growing and thriving community. Silver City ha a aodcU fully blight future. v .1 Cf, í íLJm Cr.TT Ct'.J.r'iVa Sit WrU'a fir h!itt AaX Ofrleeva Mmihw4 the Cáptate I erf Anrrlma Citlea. T1j Grand IJtike Alexis was at Kiei He ia a foil Rumian admiral How, and the head cf the Rnialaa navy. Ha was a frequent TlItor to the Americana, and, liko all the other notables, talked with the otmoet franknrae to our o Clears. One day, 'watching the Columbia as he rode the wares ss lightly and with fb eay grace of a bine wlug teal, the grand rlnke wild to a captain : "I'm glad yon Amerirans are rebuilding your fleet. Do you know what moat impreaJied me hen I via i ted your ooontTyf Let tne tell ytm. The Erst thing was yonr won. dorfnl nntional wealth; the sooond, the absolutely inadequate menns at your dis posal for national defmiPe. Yon were like a drunken mnnwlth pockets full of inoney and two or three hungry ruffians on the dark side of the street waiting a cbanoe to attack him." "Why, do yon mean to any" began tie somewhat startled captain, when the Rumian pnt his hand ou the other's arm and aaid: "Twice in my weer I bare heard the project of capturing one or two of yonr gteat cities and holding them for ransom deliberately discussed by officers of European Coots whose conn trie had hard work to make ends meet. And they meant it toa I oiioe made a sensation when, after listening to a conversation of this kind, in which the oSlcera of four different fleets took part, I said : 'Gentlemen, the ' United States and Russia are filendr. Ebon Id he b nnjustly attacked, Rursia would help to see that the wrong was righted. ' Ah, I can't tell yon wber or who it was. Come over to the Korik the Rtia !. .?nh1p! and have aginas of wlna." WaüLuigtuu rJat TKe r,ut legend. Almost every renowned man of an tlqtjity in the middle ages was bolieved to be attended by a spirltns familiaris, and not a few were suspected of being in direct league with the devil Proba bly the oldest legend ot which the Faust legend is a continnous thread is that of Simon Magus, ruontiouod lu the history of the apostles. According to Justin, be was a native of Gitton, a village in Samaria. He was, no doubt, a man of great intellec tual powers. lie was the father of the school of the Gnostics. It is also report ed of bim that be con Id make himself invisible, that be oonld pons through flames unharmed, could transpose mat ter, make gold and e xorolne demons in fact, he laid claim to all these powers and bis name lived in the months of the poople as a sort of Deminrg tbrongh many centuries nntil some other miracle working personality took hts place at the popular fireside. Unusual accom plishments, great erudition, were at tributed to the supernatural influence, and the general disposition to supersti tious assnmption was strengthened on the otie hand by dogmatia afHrmation on the part of the church of tbo exist ence of a personal latan, with his nu merous household, and, on the other band, by incorporating the maglo arts among the practical sciences, of which astrology and alchemy occupied no mean part. Alenorah. Mas Overboard. The presence of mind ot a certain well known actor was always very re markable, but was never put to so se vere a test as on the following occasion : While acting the part of a pirate chief be was being oonveyed in a vessel across the stage with bia band of brigands on deck beside him. One of the supers, whose duty it was to work the waves under large sheets of gaure, was so unfortunate aa to pnt his head through the ganae and to appear standing in the middle of the mlmlo sea before the full view of the audience. . The actor on the vessel, without los ing bis presenoe of mind, called oat, "A man overboard I" and the astonished super was hauled upon deck by the pi rates amid the applause of the specta tors, who imagined it was a part of the play. London Spectator. Iaoenlatloa For Tallow Fever. At the iuact'cg cf the American Pub lic Health association at Denver, Dr. Manuol Garnioua y Valle of Mexico read a description of his discovery of a certain cure far yellow fever, which be has used snocasfefully in hundreds of cases. Bis method is to make a subon tuieous injection in the cellular tiwrue of the arm of a secretion taken from a yellow fever patient between the fourth and fourteenth days of the fever. This effects a cure, but the diaense can be guarded against ia this way, Juat as smallpox is guarded against by vaccina Uoa. Baltimore San. When Eugene Field was oity editor of the Kansas City Times, he fouud gre.il amusement in annoying one of the oh ar ador s employed on the paper. Ferguson was one of the "make ups" no the pa per, and in Wyandotte, where be resid ed, Juat over the line frota Kanaas City, be was the leader of a local temperance society. For over a year Field, on oom Ing down to the pnper to go to work, would write a persoual conoerniug Fer nunou. Generally it ran like this: "Mr. John Furgnaou, the well known 'make up of The Times oomplug room, ap peared for work yaatoiday evening in Lis usual bonatly átate of iutoiloation. " This entertaining bit Field would seud down iu a bundle of oopy, and the oth ers of the composing room would set it up and say nothing. Toor Ferguson knew that this swfol personal Vi,hé lu Üunr iuult, sud emry night would go carefully over every gal ley for the purpoae of locating aud kill ing it. It gave him vact trouble. I. very Dow aud then Field would not write his personal about Korgueon, and then the bedevlhd l'oigadi n wus worse oft than ever. A lung aa he could not find it it might mil tie there.

Once in a while the dry pnges of gov ernment reports are enlivened bydotalls of sotmalional inoideuts. Witness the following from a report of John W. Fleming, United States mine inxpertor for Now México: "I arrived at Orillee on the evening of the 20th of February, at 1 1 p. m. Ou the morning of the S7tb I went out to the White) Ash Ooal mine, about i mile from the town. Wheal arrived there, I asked the rBperlntcndnnt of the mine, James Duggnn, about the condition of the mine, and be informed me that it was never better; that be bad been in the mine every day for eight or ten days p.ist, and bnd taken alt measurements and found that the venti lation was better than ever before. Upon my request that he proceed into the mine fur its iorpecUon, be eUlsd that he was required to go to the coke ovens of the company at Waldo, about S X miles dialaut, and would return by nooiitlmo, aud we would go into the mine." At 11 a. m. an explosion of Are damp occurred In the mine which killed II men, and showed the inspector that, sometimes, dolays are the reverse of dangerous. A Fond Mother Ruse. Tbre Is a mother on the north side who has a family of small children. One day she became very much interest ed In a book, and it seemed as it she mnst read it, but the children bothered ber very much. Finally she thought of a sóbeme whereby she could get rid of the children, so she took a broom and pnt a red cloth on it and bung it In the window. She then told the children they moat play she had the smallpox, and that they must not dare come near ber, for they would catch it, They kept away beautifully all the afternoon, and she finished the book. Some ot the neighbors alao saw the red flag and aaked the children what was the matter, and they anid smallpox, and the report was current on that sidd of town in a very short time. Not only the children, but the neighbors, kept away until they learned of the scheme. Indianapolis Journal. Tke Omatar. The Iter. Dr. A. D. Mayo, in a re cent interesting adrTre-M, quoted James Walker, a former presiden, of Harvard, as saying. "The oration will die with Mr. Roberta Winthrop." But the ora tion in no sense died with Mr. Win throp. What is more, the oration, we may be sure, will never dio until hu man nature is fundamentally different from what it is at present. It is the fashion nowadays to sneer at eloquence. One might as well sneer at mutio or pootry. Walker's reference to Winthrop was flue, considorod as a oomplimeut. Taken literally, it will not bold water. It recalls an assertion made by Mr. Howell a few yeiirsago that the stories had all been told. In fact, hasty geu eralizers are always with us. Poople ara more critical than they used to be, they are mora easily bored, they have leaa time for anytbiug than they ever had before. Nevertheless the man with a genius for oratory, the man who has something to say and who knows how to say it who can say it with a silver tongue is a perennial. He will always command an audience. Boston Commonwealth. Mary Acdersoo' SaeriBaea and Hard Work Foe a atase Career. Returning to Louisville from New York city, study was begun on a new plan. I bad learned from Mr. Venden boff who gave ber a few lessons in elo cation and act lug to turn my den into a stage. Imagining one of the walls tho auditorium, it needed but a it:c,j farther to crowd the bouse with an entbuaiastio publio, and a small audience was never Been in that theater. Chairs were made to ropresent the di&erent characters, and a bust of Shakeapear the Chandoa, to my mind the finest of all, though unfor tunately not as authentic as the Strat fordwas placed at a proper height and converted into the "'leading Juvenile." Clifford, Claude, Colonna, were the parts aasigned to it, but as Romeo I imagined it looked loaat stony. Six mouths of fditnry work was now be gun. Dancing aud mutio, of which I was paHÍoiiately fond, were renounced and luy girlhood friend, and companions given up. The exnggerutiou of youth led me to believe tliut complete concen tration on the cue subject alone would lead to incóese. The labor was particu larly hard, working as I did in the dark, having no cue to oonault and no experience to guide rue. I longed fur help, which never came, except from my mother, who was as ignorant as I of the rules of drsmatio art. Still we worked on lureasantly, I producing ef fects, she criticising them to the beat of ber ability. Often in the middle of the night I would awaken ber to show some new point. Iiidced X owe more to her coo taut and loving inte out and encourage ment than I can ever hope to repay. To get the bollow tones of Juliet's voice in the tomb aud better realise my Leroiut's feelings on awakening In ber "nest of death, contagion aud unnatural sleep," I frequently walked to Cave Hill, Louis ville's beautiful cemetery, there to speak bor lines through the grilled door of a vault. Had a thorough schooling in the art been puaaibla, instead of tbeae ran dom and uuguided efforts, my work WouI3 have boon halved and its resolta doubled.

We were running ahead of our schedule in order to make a siding in time to al low au extra to pass us, and were travel ing, I suppose, at tho rate of about 80 or 88 miles an hour. "I was sitting with my fs?e close to the forward window of the oab, gaxlng straight ahead, when in a brilliant blare of electricity a man's arm and bead suddenly burst with grent force through the ghias and the open hand truck me squarely in tho face. I was da'd for an instant by the blow, and held blindly to the side of the cab. My firat thought wss that some tramp was trying to hold up my train to rob the passengers, and, acting on this idea, I seised my wrench from its place and dealt the head of the intruder a blow with all my migbK "The fireman, thinking I bad killed the man, shut off steam and we slowed down and took our lanterns to examine the strange visitor.

He had been struck by the rapidly moving engine and bis body severed as with a knife, the lower half falling to one aide and the bead and aruts flying straight through the cab window." Atlanta Journal. Iaee That Are Fifty Fee "Lona. In our temperate climate nono of the trees has leaves of a sire that will even compare favorably with those of the sea island and tropical countries in Ronera L The maple, the oak and the elm leaves are but infinitesimal bits of green when oompnred with the gigantic sheets of velvety verdure found on some of the trees, shrubs and planta ot South and Central America. The South American tree which has the largest leaf is tbelnsjn palm, which grows on the banks of the Amnion. The leaves of this giant are often 60 feet in length, but they are very narrow, sel dom exceeding 8 to 10 feet With the Ceylonesa oocoanut palm it is different. In that species the leaves are from 90 to 85 feet in length and from 16 to 18 in width. The natives of Coy Ion aro aaid to use these leaves in teutmaklng, three or four being sufficient to make a shelter for a whole family. An extraordinary specimen of Ceylon ese palm leaf now in the British museum, aud which must be a freak because the average length and bieadlh of the leave of this variety bf trees do Dot exceed the figures given above la 80 feet in length and 93 in width, even though it is admitted that it must have shrunk one-fifth in dry ing. St Louis Republic. The Forte. The porte is the short name cf the sublime porte, which is the ofllcial way of speaking of the Turklch government In the eaat judicial business Is transact ed at the city or palace gates. One story says that the sultan of Bagdad put in the portal of his palace piece of snored black stone of Meoca, thus making Lis gate the porte. Another says that Sultan Orkban built a gorgeous gate to bis place in BrouFsa. Both of these storied re probably untrue so far as they pur port to explain the name as applied to the Turkish government Juat as the British court ia called the court of St Jamo and the late Freuoh court that ot the Tuileries, because their head quarters wore in the paluoee of St James and tfca Tuileries respectively, so the Turkish court got the name sublime porte because its headquarters were in the palace of Bub-i-Humayun, or the Lofty Gate, in Constantinople.

It is credited by The Groen Bag to Vice Chancellor Robertson of New York. The chaucellur was listening patiently t chambers to an argumentative con flict over the amount of a foe claimed by a oounüel. At the close of the con tention, he remarked t "Let me have your papers, and the affidavits of the export, and I will see what is fetislble as to the fee, and will endeavor to see my way to a juat solu tion between the contention on the one side that the fee is phenomenal one and on the other side that there should not be a nominal fee."

He was a man of dignified aspect and re ceived every mark of deference from the ouetoms culvers, who sometimos accom panied him part of the way of his daily strolL At last a letter put the authori ties on tho alert, and tho prommed prieet was found tobo a professional smuggler, who had contrived to iutrnduco Into Franca at least 1,000 watches in bis breviary, which on xaminatian proved to be a tin box.
