Tin: Yot th's Companion, l'X5 Columbus Avenue, Boston, Mass. (il.VNO CAVKS M!1.I. J. I!. IV:.Ii;T llethvs With a io:ler ato Fort line. Th;: famous guano caves near Lava north of Rincón, which have made thrir owner, J. R. De Mier, of Las Cruces, a moderate fortune in the last few years, were sold last year to a party of California capitalists, who are making extensive preparations to operate them. Machinery will be put in to aid in the extraction, sacking and shipping of the guano and phosphate, which is known to be twenty-five feet wide. During the past three years there have been nearly 5,000 tons of guano shipped from these caves, with a, value of about $H)S,i;ii0. The extent of the de posit far exceeded the most san guine expectations of Mr. De Micr, aud the indications now are that it will be a source of supply for some time to come, notwithstanding the fact that the machinery to be placed on the ground will greatly facilitate the development and shipment of the guano. The guano is exceedingly rich in phosphates and is therefore highly prized as a fertilizer by the California fruit growers who are eager purchasers. The guano is the deposit of bats, who have frequented the caves for centuries. It is said by those familiar with the country that there are immense deposits of guano in some caves out on the Gila which might pay these guano investors to look into. Albuquerque Citizen. (lives a $10,00!) Imoi.!. Levi Claypool, who was found guilty at the last term of court on a charge of stealing sheep and was sentenced to five years in the penitentiary, was released from the county jail a few days ago on a bond of $10,000 pending an appeal to the supreme court. Mr. Claypool enjoyed a spotless reputation at his home in Ohio before coming to New Mexico. Furthermore, those who are fa miliar with the testimony adduc ed during his trial last June arc of the opinion that he is the vic tim of a miscarriage of justice. Possibly nobody in particular is to bo blamed in the matter and it is simply one of those unfortun ate occurrences that cannot be avoided by the utmost precaution. TliuiikHgivliiff Hull.
