Mr. Troger selected mi excellent display of mineral specimens, which be boxed up and shipped buck east taut week. Liberal supplies of salt, it is claimed, placed at different points on a range, will prevent cattle from eat ing loco weed. With the exception of the heading to the paper, the Uolden Kra is the most attractive and readablfl paper that comes to this office, One of the signs of the prosperity of the camp is the increase demand for ore sacks, several of the mining supply stores being entirely sold out. 0 .. i Mr. A. iiaknabv has commenced tvork on the Daniel Webster. A hu ge quantity of rich ore, similar in I'haractnr to that, of the Caledonia, is being taken out. A ;inp" rnMumei to be warn by ft ynuiiff lady of -aula Ke al a varmval to ni(.hi. (Otitic.

A hwlanmr seek quiet well be vot'd tolhe lniitu popular lady ul I lit' cuiv-buys bull on Ihe roih -l:ifo sto"i kiuau. Hy a rareful analysis of the fere going, you will discover that the idea intended to be eonveyud is as cleaias mud. Some of the mining kings of King ston are now oir to !tew Orleans on a holiday. Messrs Klliott and Forbes left on Monday, Col. A. W. Harris on Tuesday in a special conveyance. The former are of the Brush Heap, nnd the latter of the Illinois. . .Messrs. Pickett and Elliott have established their law office at Hills boro, where they , will attend to all matters of a legal nature that conies before them. They are experienced and able attorney, and, we might mid, that their library is large and complete. We are in receipt of a communica tion from a party in the east, who makes this branch a specialty, ask ing us to inseit an advertisement for which we are to receive humorous articles weekly as compensation therefor. The. Advocate hastens to decline the liberal proposition. We are not hankering after a glimpse of the dim-bedurn just yet. There was a young kid who once ran a newspa per here, and who essayed to inject Jiill Arpism and tickle-me-under-the rib ideas into his editorials and to cals, but an oTerwrougbt and fren zied populace fired him bodily. It is certainly a pleasing oecupa tion, that of constructing cabinets filling territorial offices, and manip ulating the buzz-saw of party su premacy, but that which the average citizen is most interested in, is a lit tle more money and a moiety less of the political sw ill-barrel. Never in the history of the country lias there been a more favorable oullook for the people of Xew Mexico than the present. Our mines are pending ont a steady stream of the gray metal, our immense plains are covered with countless thousands of the finest of cattle, out broad expanse of agricul tural and fruit lands will soon be bending beneath the weight of an Unprecedented harvest, and yet the spirit of despondency seems to have, taken possession of both the press and the people. By all means let us whoop things up, and catch on to the tail-end of the procession before it is everlastingly too late. PERSONALS. communicated. Wanted-Busluess Men. To open and develop our mines, not business men to open stores and business houses generally. We have have an abundance of men who know how to keep store, run a bar, hotel or butcher shop. Wc have lawyeos who understand their busi ness and can attend to all the litiga tion that may spring up; a justice of the peace is located here whose, at tainments in legal lore and ability to unravel knotty problems is be yond question; but we do want men who can turn a prospect hole into a mine who have the ability and bus iness sense to put in $1000 and take oi t $2000. Wc have plenty of men who know how to run a hole, miners in lead, coal, iron and gold. This is a silver camp. We do not eare whether a man knows silver from iron or manganese. We have as sityers here who make their living by imparling information which will lead a business man to know whether he is having iron, manganese or sil ver taken out, and having found that he should know enough to follow it. He does not want to sink a straight shaft to follow a ciooked vein, liftr can he expect to tunnel in mid find it vein which he has only prospected on tho surface. The Frenchman expressed oilf idea exactly. He had not been making much, lacked capital, his partners had not helped him mifVh, (is he said. "He has got money," and lapping his finger on the table in an emphat way "he has got sense business sense." We have men, of course, in camp who are carrying on mining in a business way a few, but we need more. Your correspondent, wrote ' On the Road" last week, saw our camp in the right light, and I hope be will visit us again and see a marked change when he does come. C. F.. Cass is now located at Lake Valley. Sam Jackson leaves for Old Mexl co next week. James E. McDonald can bo found in (ieorgetown. MeCaulcy and Harley left yester day morning for Xew Orleans1 George Hunsinger departed last Monday morning furSanta Fe to vis it his family. A. J. VanEngen, the new book keeper at the smelter, has settled down to business. Mr. William Harris leftthij week for the l'alomas to survey some min ing property in that locality. Alfred Darrach, Ksq., of Hillsboro, was in town on Monday looking af. ter his mines on the North l'mlm. Jack Bivens is foreman at the In gersoll. He knows how to sink a shaft, drive a tunnel or work a drift. George Hariman, an old-timer, and one of the owners of the Cale donia, is never seen in town novv-a-days. J. Bioodgood nnd son are expected back from their ranch on the Gila eveiy day. I hey have been away three months. Henry Wilms, Ksq.. cf the firm of Wilms & Kleiner, California brewery. left on Thursday morning for Cali fornia, his old home. Mr. S K. Bradford, the civil en gineer ana surveyor, is now busy making a map of this suction for some outside parlies. (i. M. Fuller, Esq., nnd Hon. N. Galles, of Hillsboro, nnd W. 8. Hopewell and Mr. Donalson, of Chloride, spent Monday and Tues day in town. Bradford & Troger are not now working in the woven iJrotliers on the Tierra Blanca. Trocar has none to New Orleans and Bradford is busy at work in his ollice. However Ihe S. H. is in good hands and doing as fine as ever Mr. Dick Troger, of tlie mining and engineering firm of Bradford tfc Troger, left for New Orleans Tues day last, with his pocket full of money, to take a vacation after a lung siege of work in engineering and mining, George II. Webber, tho erack marksman and champion wing-shot in the territory, with his father, left Monday morning for the Gila Hot Springs, to be gone about four weeks on a hunt. His father, John K. Webber, is from Pennsylvania on a visit here, and seems to be mirVh pleased with the ways of oltr people. George is tho lucky owner of some good mining property in tho camp. ALL OVER THE COUNTY. At least double the number of teams are at work hauling high grade ore out of the camp, that were engaged in this line of business two months ago. Several mines have be gun to ship that never shipped be fore. Besides those engaged in haul inglo and from the railroad, several are employed in delivering ore to the nmclter. Money seems to begin to flow out of the camp and everybody just now appears to be busily engaged in accumulating the gray metal. Our banker, V. Wallace, Esq., issues in numerable draftn, and the way we r-ee our efficient postmaster working, we judge hie fees for money orders nnd postal notes are greater than they havo been for months past.

In accordance with the order of the Board of County Coonimission ers, Supt. E. B. Franks has made a new apportionment .of last, year's school fund, tho total amount of which was $2,200. There being 400 school children in the county each will receive $550, as follows: Lake Valley, 94 children, $o!7.00; Hillsb.ro, with 62, $341.00; King ston, with 6o, 357.o(); Monticel lo, with 106. $583. 00; Fairvicw. with 40, $22000; Chloride, with 33, $181.50.' Orders for the above amounts have been forwnrded the treasurers of the different districts. The apportion ment of school money will not be m ado until June. Notice to Tedcliers. The examination of applicants for the position of teacher of the public school at Kingston will be held at the office of Judge Burns, on Tues day, February, 10th, at 11 o'clock, a. m. David Desi.vger, M. COSGKOVE, J. T. Kfxskv, School Directors. It is said that on the mining claim of A. M. Cornell, in Ilernio 8a, there exists unmistakable evi dences of n deposit of excellent coal. Should this rumor develop irtto a fact, then the people of that district will hare solved a question that will prove of incalculable ben efit to the whole county. The shipment of ore from Lake Valley hns decreased to a car-load or two per day. The Valley is moving in the di rection of good roads. Armstrong Bros, will hereafter carry the) mud between i'airview and Grafton. It is reported (hat horse thieves ara again operating on the Rio Grande. Tho bachelor's social club will give a ofilie bull Friday eve., at Chloride. Everybody is expect ed to turn out nnd enjoy tiii occa sion to tito fullest extent. Among the many attractions of Sierra county is an abundance of gamfl Two hunters from Lake Valley recently bagged quite a number of ducks, which were shipped to El l'aso, netting the Niinroda a nice sum in cash. Mr. Muhlenberg, of the Sierra Grande Mining company, lias re cently returned from his native state, Pennsylvania, and brings with him a charming bride to his western home. Lake Valley, of bite, has been honored with tho presence of a large number of strangers. Dogs nre rapidly disappcniing from Lake Valley, and it is sup posed (hat the majority of the miss ing purps have taken the Arseuieul Short line. It is rumored that a changd will soon take place in the manage ment of the New Era. Father Hays will hold regular Sunday services at Lake Valley hereafter. A surprise party greeted Con ductor and Mrs. ltuss on the evs of their departure for Kineon hist week. They will reside in liincon in the future. Hermoso, with commendable zeal and true btiMutwi ciiUrpi ise, has had a survey made of tbe town site and new streets, alleys, etc., propei ly laid off and named. The Fneblo smelting company has leased the Apache mine at Lake Valley, and added a number of men to the present working force. Hermosa boasts that there are no idle men in the camp, and that such a thing fta a chronic loafer is unknown. We venture the asser tion that there is not aenmpin i. iim i ., l the kl erntory that can compare Over 300 men are now emploVed ,. , ; wcr .( ' . ., . t a- n " with it in this l est eel. pick yXLIOTT, Hillsboro, - New Mexico.
