SacrePy emhrined in the ca thedral of Aix-la-Ohapelle are the great relios which were presented to Oharlemagne by the Patriarchs of Jerusalem in the year 702. These wonderful relics of the Sav ior and His immediate family are now kept in a beautiful silver shrine, which was made especially for their safe keeping in the year. 892. They consist of the following articles: The clothes worn by the infant Jesus at tho time of the “flight into Egypt,” a robe said to have been worn by His mother at the time of the nativity, a scarf worn by tbe Savior while hanging on the cross, and the awful spear with which the centurion pierced His side. Besides the above, there are so v eral lesser relics kept in the same shrine, but separately inclosed in lockets and caskets of gold. Among these minor reminders of Jesus and the crucifixion the most interesting are the sponge which was filled with vinegar and one of the nails which was driven through His hand ( The two relics last men tioned and the leather girdle which the Savior always wore are kept in a gold and silver casket along witu the cord which was bound around His knees after He was taken from the cross. Near this silver lined repository, hanging on a hook of gold, pointed with a first watrr diamond, is a small diamond crust ed gold locket, containing a lock of the Virgin's hair and a piece of the cross.—London Times. Women make the aerostats, or war balloons, used by the British government, and alio do sera * part of the roping of the baboons. They work in sheds built specially for the purpose. There are about 35 womeu engaged, and all earn good wages. Tliex are mostly the wives and daughters of soldiers, and have all been carefully trained by the superintendent of the balloon de partment. The making of the bal loons requires a very delicate touch, one thin til u > f bullock’s skin having to be laid over another with the greatest care. The ends of the ropes have also to be woven into each other with extraordinary deftness. Printers’ Ink, the best authority on advertising in the United States, refers to the analogy of the “good will” of a business, and the cumu lative eftectof advertising. It says: “What is called the ‘good-will’ of a business is merely the cumulative effect of continuity. So with an adAertisement; the longer it runs the greater its value. A business that has been continued for fifty years wou*d loose its good-will in twelve months if once stopped, and very few men would care to pay much for it. Once advertising is stopped its cumulative effect is lost, and the longer it remains deed the harder it will be to make it effective when started again.” The Williams News says that F. R. Nellis has bonded thirteen of 1 his Canyon copper claims for the i sum of $13,000 to a strong tinau ' cial company of Boston. This company will at once expend a large sum of money in the devel. opment of these properti's, which means much to this section and in all probability marks a new bus - iness epoch in Coconino county. The Washington Pest of Doc. 28ih, says: “It has boon learned from an authentic source that Sec retary Oluey and Senor Dupby de Lome have practically terminated the negotiations of the Cuban ques tion, which are to be submitted to congress when it convenes on J*n uary sth. The terras of the agree ment are based on the official com munication from Premier Genovas, addressed to the Secretary of State. The Premier s ates clearly the terms which Spain will accord to the insurgents, and practically asks the United States to propose these conditions to her rebellious sub jects. In return for ottr good of fices Spain assures this government she sincerely deplores the great commercial loss which we have sustained on account of the Cuban disturbances She assures us she even now considering a reciprocity treaty «hich will deal mainly with Cuban products and which will bo framed in such advantageous terms toward this government that our losses, both in commerce and in the destruction of Amorican prop erty in Cuba, will be most gener ously compensated. The oil well discovery at St David has created quite a little excitement A high Southern Pa cific official who was at Tucson when the report was first made known, came to the scene of the diggings. He made a thorough examination of the oil, taking with him samples to be tested, and also spoke encouragingly of the forma tion and depth. The Southern Pacific uses considerate oil for fuel and should the new strike de velop into paying quantities that ''Otnpany would be iu the m irket for every drop and also, doubtless sink wells thereabouts. Further developments are anxiously await ed. Prospector. An evangelist chose Stewart, Ok., a« the scene of an attack on “women who dance.” A large audience had assembled and when the evangelist, warming up to the subjeot, made a wholesale denun ciation against all women who in dulged in dancing, the audience rapidly left the building, with the evangelist in front. He started for the railroad station and reached it after enjoying a personal en counter with each member of his late audience. It is believed thero will be no diminution of dancing in Steward this winter, and r.hat anti dancing evangelists will remove this town from their visiting lists At the convention of the Irish race last month in Dublin two speakers, who had come from the United States, contributed the following sentences in the course of their speeches. One of them, in giving some details of personal history, informed his hearers that “he had left Ireland 53 years be fore, a naked little boy, without a dollar in his pocket - ” Said the Other: “ Until last week I haj never Bet foot in the land of my birth.” In Sweden and Norway a legal marriage is not allowed to be sol emnized till both parties produce certificates attesting that that they bear genuine vaccination marks. A Florida boy is shedding his skin. Many a youngster has wish ed that he eould do that just be fore it was tanned. ARIZONA MINKS. The assertion in the Los Angeles Times, that there was no future for mining in Arizona, to say the least, a more rediculous statement was never made. The Republican in criticising the article in the Times, mentioned several mines which have a world wide reputation as producers of gold and eopner, such as Congress, the United Verde, the Old Dominion, and Copper Queen, and other. There are many prop erties with prospects suffcien’ly bright to decide capitalists .to in vest in them, and every day we hear of money coming into the territory to aid in their develop ment. The mountains of Arizona hard ly have as yet been scratched over by the seekers after gold, copper and silver. In the next ten years they will produce wealth in such an amount that the world will be astonished. This is not mere talk. It is the opinion of experts who 1 have made careful examinations of the extensive mineral belts of the territory. The output of gold and silver from Arizona mines in the last year approximates $10,000,000. The copper output amounts into the millions. New machinery is being installed in many camps. Men with capital who desire good : mining investments should not pass Arizona by. This is indeed the treasure territory.—Oasis. Frank Maguire and sons this week brought in a ton of ore from the Lookout mine, owned by J.-S Withers, which gave a return of seventeen ounces in gold. One sack of ore from the same mine gave a value ot $6,000 per ton. This is a good showing for the Lookout. There is no doubt that the mine would show up great quantities of ore fully as rich as this ts it was worked in a systera •ati; manner.—Kingman Miner. A California man, despondent because of bad health, and having conscientious scruples against sui cide, made a harrowing confession of a murder, filling it in with hor rible details, in hopes of being lynched. It is doubtful if a brain of any but Ameriean ingenuity could have conceived such a plan of leaving life. He was disap pointed, however, by the law-abid ing sentiment of the community, which he had hoped to stir up. The King of Sweden and Nor way has written to the newspapers a denial of a speech attributed to him. The idea of a crowned and anointed monarch appealing to tlie press to set him right before the people of his land is one empha sizing more than any other thin? could do the real tribunal and rul er of the age, before whose power j even kings must bow. And the | power of the press means yet more I emphatically the power of the people. Southern Arizona can confident ly look forward to a mining reviv al in this region during the next ninety days which will eclipse any past experience in the territory. As soon as the facts become public touching the product of the Pearce and other gold mines. Cripple Creek and other gold producing districts of the northern region will be given a res- especially do— ring the frigid sens on.—Tucson Star Mohave Minor: The Atlantic and Pacific railroad company has agreed to pay to Mohave county the sure of $16,211 taxes on its as sessment of 1896. There was a dispute over sll3, which the supervisors agreed to strike from the roll. Th« Atlantic and Pacific railroad company has for years done the square thing by the county and the supervisors wore wise to pave away to a settlement. The company pays one-half of the tax of the county. The Graham Bulletin states that . HArry L, Smith, defaulting under-sheriff of that county, who, last July, skipped out from Solo mon villa with a shortage of some SI6OO, has since done up the Mot ile Gibson Mining Co., at Aspen, Colorado, and bueiness men of that place, for about SI,OOO and is now missing from there. Steps were afoot to bring him back to Graham county, where four indictments stand agviust him. The Harvey House &t this place had an o’possuiu dinner on Christ mas day. The writer received an invitation from the genial manager, W. B. Kunkle, to partake of the savory dish. As we were raised in the land of the “ 'possum and sweet potato,” we accepted the in vitation, and wh;le enjoying the toothsome dish were carried back to our boyhood days when we en joyed hunting as much as we did eating them —Winslow Mail. A gentleman just in from Jerome says that! very lively camp is having a vertitable boom these days. The Union Verde Copper Company, which nearly doubled the capacity of its plant during the past summer is still engaged in enlarging its plant and increasing its capacity. Parties who are in a position to know of the output of that mine estimate that its daily product now averages between $15,000 and $20,000. — Journal - Miuer. An exchange givos the following brief summary of the trials of a country editor: “If the country editor were to snap at all tle in ducements held out he would soon' be a millionaire. If be ran the paper according to the popular no tion he would be in (he poor house. If he published half the items that are sent to him, he would be in jail half the time and in the hospi tal the other half. According to the estimates of the German and French statisti cians the wars of . the last . forty years have cost the nations engag ed in them, in money alone, the almost inconceivable sum of $13,- 000,000,000. Os this amount France has paid nearly $3,500,- j 000,000 as the cost of ln>.r war with Prussia, ■■ There are fifty -two penitentiaries and over 17,000 jails in the United States. They cost $500,000,000 to build them. Over 900,000 persons were incarcerated in the year 1892. The criminal expense to the country is not |ew than $100,005,- 000 annually. Ihe Florence Tribune says that Fred. S. Pheby, superintendent of ; the Stiver King, has bonded the i Gem mine, near Pinal, and pro • poses to erect cyanide works for i treating the ore, which goes about i S2O per ton in gold. jN n 11.
