Albuquerque Gen’l Agent, Albuquerque N M i Xbe City Prison Jag Cure* The reporters and officials about the City Prison have a cure for drunkenness that has never been known to fail. It will sobor up a man quicker and keep him sober longer than anything else on earth. No bypodei mic injections that tie his nerves into bow knots or nauseating nostrums that turn his stomach wrong side out are given, but the treatment is none the less severe. When a' ‘‘drunk” is dragged into the Qjty Prison limp and uncon scious he is thrown into a cell and allowed to sleep it off. When he finally wakes it takes him about half an hour to realize his position, and then he falls a victim to red hot remorse. He knows he is in jail and more than suspects that he was arrested for drunkenness, but he recollects nothing of it and the uncertainty is perplexing. About that time a couple of police officers come to his cell, he is taken out, seated on a bench, with an officer on each side of him. He soramences to wonder what is up. “We are officers,” remarks one, "and we want to know how this happened.” “Don’t know. Suppose I took a drink or two too many.” "Oh, I mean the killing.” " What killing ?” and the "drunk’s” hair commences to stand. "Oh, you needn’t pretend that you don’t know anything about it. There’s the blood on your hands, and we’ve got the knife sou cut that woman’s throat with.” "My God ! did I kill anybody ? So help’ me, God, gentlemen, I don’t remember a thing after I took that last drink of whisky,” and he commences to moan and cry. "What did you want to kill her for ?” "Who did I kill? My wife ?” “Yes, your her throat from ear to ear.” The “drunk” nearly faints and wails so loud that he attracts the attention of every one in the prison. l About- that time half a dozen reporters flock around him to interview him and they question him <about the harrowing details. He looks at the blood on his hands and shudders, not suspecting that it is from his nose. He pleads that he remembers nothing of it and must have been insane. Then he is locked up again and the next time he is questioned he tells a long story to show that it was in self defense during a drunken quar rel. He swears he will never take another drink so long as he lives and is allowed to go with the statement that his story of self-de sense is believed. He sneaks home to attend his wife’s funeral and finds her alive and well. But he stays sober for many a day.—S. F. Post. Sir Robert Ball, the astronomer royal for Ireland, at a scientific meeting stated that the time is coming when power would be fur nished for industrial purposes di rectly from the heat of the suu, and he exhibited a machine of that character that was capable of driv ing a small printing press, A spoon in a glass filled with hot water prevents the breaking of the glass, because the metal readily absorbs a large part of the hest of the water. We might as well permit our enemies to direct the movements of our armies in the field in time of war as to permit them to direet or control our manufactures and other industries in times of peace. The present pressure illustrates the fol ly of Uncle Sam in assisting hi* rival and creditor Johnny Bull to demonetize silver. England buys from fifty to sixty millions of silver annually to use in her trade with India, China and other Eastern countries. When our mints were open to free coinage she never bought an ounce for less than $1.29. Now she gets it for about half price. Every ounce will buy as much wheat and cotton in India as it ever would, but, the silver ounce costing less, the cost of these sta ples delivered in Liverpool is re duced one half through half price silver. This regulates the price of all wheat and cotton England buys from us, and these staples form nearly one half of our exports. — Mining and Scientific Press. From a bulletin issued by the census bureau it is shown that the entire receipts by the national state, county, township and municipal governments of the United States combined, including schools and postal service and all forms of tax ation, reached in 1890 an aggregate of $1,040,473,013. The total ex penditures for the government of the people, from the support of the district school to the payment of the expenses of congress and the interest on the public debt in the same year, amounted to $915,954, 055, leaving a balance of $124,- 518,958 in the treasuries of the various states, cities and counties. The revenues are made up from various sources, the largest being local taxation upon real and per sonal property, which was $443- 096,574 The liquor dealers of the United States contributed to the support of the government the sum of $24,706,496. A bachelor says: Man that is married to woman is of many days and full of trouble. In the morn ing he draws his salary, and in the evening behold it is all gone; it goes but he knows not where. He spendeth shekels in the purchase of fine linen to cover the bosoms of his family, yet he is seen at the gates of the city with but one sus pender. He goeth forth as an ox or an ass, and draweth the chariot of his offspring. He ariseth in chilly garments of night, and seek eth the soranambulent paregoric, which healeth the colicy stomach of his offspring. Yes he is alto gether wretched and full of misery. Wide is the road and broad is the way that leadeth to the gate of matrimony, and many there be that goeth in thereat. The shipment of Mexican dollars to the Orient continues unabated, $7,774,455 having been forwarded to Asia byway of San Francisco during the last eleven months. The demands of trade are constantly expanding, and China is trying to provide a medium of exchange taore suited to the requirements of the present time than the ancient cur rency of copper. It will be a long time before gold m onometalism will be an accomplished fact throughout the world. Silver is the natural medium of exchange for all the countries in Asia, and must be kept iu the circulation of the countries which wonld trade with them —San Diego Union. Bad Kugine«i» Ilethods. The primary object of transact ing business, says a Chicago ex change, is not to occupy one** time, but to make money. A great many people seem to iose sight of this end and imagine if they are gelling a large amount of goods or making a vast number of machines they are doing exactly the right thing. A salesman who can beat the house of Jones & Smith out of a large sale is usually commended, though his firm may lose money by the opera tion Competition has become so sharp in almost a'l lines that the question of profit is lost sight of in the mad rush for business. To hurt a competitor is too often re garded as the same thing as help ing one’s self. Next to attempting to do business on insufficient capi tal; the practice of doing business for the sake of doing business is accountable for the vajst number of failures of the present day. Cus tomers secured through cut prices are hard to hold, since they aro always looking for like concessions. It is bettor to sell a few goods and make a fair profit than carry on a “ land-office business” at a net loss. Dr. C. O. Vaughn, dean of the University of Michigan Medical Faculty, believes that he has dis covered a certain specific for tuber culosis. The product is called nuclein, and was but recently made. The doctor has just re turned from the International Con gress of Hygiene at Buda Pesth, Hungary, where he read a paper on his discovery which attracted considerable attention. He has not proceeded far enough in his experiments to declare that nuclein will absolutely prevent tuberculosis in men, but he has proved that it will in animals. Albert A. Wat son, a senior law student from De* troit, has, however, tried the nuclein. In nine months he had gained twelve pounds and seemed entirely cured. The report of the board of prison commissioners has been received by Governor Hughes. It shows that the per capita cost of the prisoners has been reduced lower than ever before in the history of the insti tution notwithstanding the addition of many improvements. It ap proves the efforts made in the di rection of securing perfect discip line. The work of Sec. McKean is highly commended as is also his predecessor in office, E. J. Trippel, The board recommends the pardon of G. W. Rood and also that of Isador Licano for the purpose of restoring them to citizenship. The commissioners recommend commu tations in the cases of King Ussery Nels Hansen and Jesse Castillo, The court of private land claims has just concluded a term wherein much important business was trans* acted. During the past year the court confirmed the Spanish and Mexican grants to the amount of 779,000 acres, and rejected such claims to the amount of 3,814,000 acres. In Arizona none were con firmed, and grants amounting to 199,000 acres were rejected, United States Attorney Matt. G. Reynolds of St. Louis, is entitled to great credit for this favorable showing to the government. The court will meet again on January 25tb next, when claims to the amount of sev eral million acres will come before it. No. 6.
