N'oriiml School Kullclliiff. The norma school building will be completed in time for the fall term of school. The nionev necessary for the completion and furnishing of the build ing will be advanced by ('. V. lirayson, of the Silver City national hank, the bonds being held as security. The board of regenta had been unable to Hull the bonds because the law passed by the last legislature authorizingthe is sue had not been ratified by act of con gress, and without this authorization dealers in securities did not care to in invest their money. Mr. Grayson has assumed all risk in the matter, being anxious to see the building completed and the school in a prosperous condi tion. It is estimated that the building can be finished and furnished as far as necessary for about half the amount of bonds authorized by the last legislature, but it. will require at least the entire amount to finish and furnish the entire building and inclose the grounds. The Territorial Iiihhiih Asylum. The Optic does not believe that there is a public institution anywhere in the United States that is managed in a more intelligent or business-like manner than the territorial asylum lor the insane, which is located near this city. Wiih an appropriation each year no greater than some of the territorial schools, it has clothed, fed ami givbn medical care to from titty to sixty patients, restoring many to their normal condition ot mil d, and providing a home lor some unfortu nates w Ihj can never again be blessed with the light of reason. The building now used is inadequate to comfortably accommodate the iiuiii ler of patients that are now there, and each monih adds to the number already lieing provided for. The failure of the government to provide money to erect a new building is indeed unfortunate, i i.d the party or parties responsible for this . failure can not be too severely censured. It is a patriotic dutv of the next legisla ture to see that the appropriation lor this institution is inciea.-i d. and provis ion should also be male lor another building, even f only a temporary structure.

The proposed ii tw road is a uistance of 120 miles, and the distance from Silver City to Mogollón is only ii in ly miles. Silver City mer chants should look to their interests and nndge Hie Gila river and see that other needed improvements should be none on t tie road irom tins place lo Mogollón.

While thirteen is consideied an un lucky number, it happened not long ago that seventeen cut quite a ligure in (he rule ul an unlucky denomination on a I'uisburg line. A certain conductor had cnarge oí the third section of train seventeen with engine seventeen haul ing it, and ran into the second section of seventeen at lock seventeen, and smashed sevenleen cars and delayed trailic seventeen '.ours, ami it is said that the superintendent concluded that the proper punishment was to lay the crew ol third section seventeen off for seventeen davs. There is talk of running an electric freight railroad up Mount l'opocaiapeil in Mexico, 18,000 feet above the sea. and in'o the craier as a means oí gelling sulphur oiii market.
