Hillsboro is self-supporting. It is

all Uje Black Eange country.

The people of Sierra county have

ly for the people of this county, and

tarily and conscientiously extend
this simple recognition in reciproca
ton for such valuable services.
We regret to note the death of
Miss Nora Tittsworth, the pleasant
and accomplished sister-in-law of
Mr. II. M. Herrin, of Lako Valley.
Miss Nora was only 18 years of age,
but grim death with its .eM (
is no distingulsher of persons. It
calls from among us those in the
spring-time of life as well as those
who are on the brink of the "sweet

Last Sunday night a sociable was
given at the Hotel Union in honor
of St. Ana's day, a day held in mem
ory dear from the traditions of an
antiquated Spanish Saint, and who,
by the way, is a better man than
8t. Patrick. The biography of this
distinguished personage, we are un
able to publish in full, but suffice it
to say the party was well attended,
while Ice-cream, cake and other
delicacies of the season helped to fill
out the vacuum between vocal and
musical entertainments. Altogether,
the afl'uir wis a reherchc one, and all
went homo feclijjg glad they were
there, - v
Old memories were awakened yes
terday by the sight of dipt. Fechet
and his troop. Their inspection and
drill seemed so familiar, that a feel
ing like wishing to be one of them
stole over us. The well disciplined
appearance of the troop reflects cred
it on their gallant commander, and
although not decked out in phimes
and shining accoutrements, every
thing looked uniformtilly neat and
martial to the eye- The stock is in
excellent condition, and no fear
need bo entertained, but that they
would be able to give Geronimo, or
any other red marauder, a good tight
chase if found within reach.
The soldiers and "'boys'' made St.
Anna their patroness for the occas
ion, and to judge by the lusty sounds
emanating from . their well wet
throats, they were enjoying them
selves. The songs they sang were
not perhaps strictly in accordance
with the intents of those who insti-
tined the h
fident that the sound came from men
who were "at peace with all the
world." Although the music was
not such that Handel or Hayden
would have admired, yet it gave
proof that Hillsboro, assisted by the
"boys in blue," could still raise
enough energy to "make the welkin
ring." All hail to St. Anna! If she
will awake the slumbering spirit of
pleasure, Hillsboro greets her.
'Spike" was there.
Hillsboro is rapidly becoming one
of the best towns in southern New
Socorro has two citizens who have
each a revenue of over $1 ,000 a day.
So says the Interpreter.
People who buy town property in
Hillsboro are sure to double their

The connection between the shaft
and the tunnel on the 100-foot level
in the Homestake mine 1 was made
this week. This enables com
pany to put on tenor mop- men if
they only had a mill ui .Hlkk'ut

was driven, not because it was need

An exchange says that all bulls
are treacherous and dangerous, and
should be handled with care. Per
haps this is one reason why some of
our stockmen keep w few bulls on
their ranges. Fine bulls have never
been so cheap as they are this season.
Stockmen have opportunities now
by the purchase of a sufficient num
ber of bulls for their herds, at the
present low prices, for the acquire
ment of a larger percentage of gain
in the future of their business than
can como from any other source of
good management Bullion.
Lone Star: Lightning struck in

no murks or bruises upon his body,

Las Vegas Optic. How often have
we noticed it. When a marriage oc

a notice of it in the local paper.
When his folks are visiting or visit

money weekly, part of which is pret
ty sure to bo spent at. his place of
business, paying taxes to support
the town, keeping the country around
informed as to home news, induding
trade to come to town, etc., where
a press run by a twenty-live cent boy
gets out bills, note heads, etc., on
inferior work for only a few pennies
less then ho would have had to pay
for a good job done at home. We
never feel sorry for a man when we
see his look of chagrin as he discov
ers that the eastern printer has spell

The editor of the Interpreter was
informed on Wednesday last, in the
presence of witnesses, by a gentleman
who said he knew, that unless his
"little black sheet let'up on the for
eigners that he (the editor) would
get a good whipping." We are not
surprised at such threats. We ex
