Dear Friend: Yours of the 8th inst.
is at hand. Enclosed please find your
receipt, signed, for $560.71, so promptly
paid oh account of my accident in Bis
bee in June last.
Your kindness in advancing me $160
before I was able to present my claim,
and the promptness of the company in
the settlement of my claim, I shall never
forget. Yes, renew my policy when it
runs out and send me a bill for the pre
mium to this place. I am now engaged
in superintending James Carr's business
in this place, and collecting and keeping
his accounts. If necessary, change my

A New Loom.
The Hunt loom, now in operation in
San Francisco, if all that is said of it
is true, is a most important contribution
to labor-saving machinery. As described
by a correspondent of the Baltimore
Sun, tho loom is noiseless, has no shut
tle, and weaves material four yards
wide, of any kind of goods, with tho
same hands and steam power now re
quired to make one yard. Tho labor is
so lightened that it is better adapted to
women than to mon, and women are
enabled to weave more and produce bet
ter work than men, with tho great ad
vantage that tho most delicate constitu
tions need not bo impaired. Cloth
woven three yards wide is mado so that
it can be cut apart after being woven,
making threo separate ana distinct
pieces of cloth for market Tho quality
of cloth is said to bu superior and easy
to recognize. Tho loom is now in prao-'
tical operation and does all it promises,
but "has every now and then littlo
breakages, so far easily repaired. Ex
perts and business men aro divided in
sentiment All agree that it must bo
all rightbut it may take more time than
calcinated to assure against the break
ing of small but essential parts."
