Chamber clocks in silver, copying
the popular round Waterbury clocks
Edison is perfecting a phonograph
clock which is destined to surprise
tardy visitors. It can bo set at any
hour say 11 p. m. When the hands
indicate this hour the visitor is
startled by hearing a voice from the
clock proclaim: "Time for bed!
Time for bed! Go home!1'
A new fad for a laundry list is to
take a small transparent slate, write
the list in quaint letters on a piece
of paper, dipping it between the
slate and back, and fasten a small
pencil with a bright ribbon to the
side. Then paint the frame with a
background of white with berries all
The thoughtful housekeeper will
not forget the consideration due to
her servant during such extreme
weather as been undergone lately
Even with every care the kitchen is
an almost intolerable place, with the
average temperature of the day
among the nineties; any woman who
docs not realize this has only to walk
lrom her cool, darkened sitting room
to the cook's domain to be glad to
hurry away. The meals should be
planned to demand as little heat as
possible, and an arrangement ought
to be m.ule to give the . cook an hour
or two out of the kitchen in some
cool spot during the day.
The fish net draperies now to be
found in the shops possess consider
able capabilities for summer cottage
decoration. They are light shades
modern furnishings demand,, and
they are inexpensive and easily
transferred from one place to an
other. They should be irregularly
festooned across a wide doorway and
allowed to hang straight on one side,
while the other, perhaps, is caught
up with a bow, a bunch of grasses
or a Japanese fan. Our ideas of Jap
anese decorations have been much
enlarged since the days when the
red and blue spatterwork of fans and
umbrellas seemed to be ouronly con
ception of it. Beautiful banners,
screens, as well as tie familiar fans
and umbrellas, are now shown in soft
tones of gray, brown and rose, that
lend themselves admirably to cool

The allusion to the Emperor Will
iam's grandmother and the enter
tainment she has prepared for him at
Osborne, recalls a funny incident of
the late Duke of Clarence's journey
in India. At one place the natives
had erected a triumphal arch which
was unveiled as ho neared it, reveal
ing the inscription, "Tell your
grandmother we are happy."
Ralph Emerson's widow is now in
her GUth year. She lives with her
unmarried daughter, Miss Ellen, in
the old homestead at Concord. She
sees no visitors, reads nothing, and
apparently feels jio interest in the
outside world. Only at the rarest
intervals does she leave tho bouse.
Then she goes for a short driv in
tho old family carry-all, which looks
as if it might have been purchased
with the house in 1835. Miss Emer

Mrs. Ayers, tho wealthy New
York widow, has had her picture
painted by Carolus Duran, and the
probabilities are that Mrs. Ayers now
regrets it very much. The Jady is
seated on a sort of throne, covered
with antique tapestry. She is robed
in heavy velvet of an indescribable
hue and a heavy purple mantle, bor
dered with Russian sable, falls from
her shoulders. Velvet shoes are on
her feet , and the artist's love of color
is further illustrated by the reveal
ing of a bright red pair of stockings.
The English papers allude to the
picture as 'Queen Crusus," and crit
icises Duran lor representing the es
t mibleMrs. Ayers in this fashion
and missing all her sweet and wo

Mexico and Arizona. It Is the chief commercial
tovn of a vast tributary country, rich In resources,
the development of which has Jut been commenced.
West and north of I. as Vegas, reaching to the Colora

with forests of pine timber, affording sn excellent
quality of lumber. .Iimt west of town, one to two
ndles, Is mi unlimited supply of the finest red and
white sandstone, pronounced by. Prof, lluyden the
finest In the United .Slates.
The valleys of lhc mountain streams are very rich
and prolific, producing wheat, oats, corn, grass, etc.,
In abundance. Kiisl aud south of the town and like
wise tributary to II, are the vast and well grassed
plains and allcys of the Canadian and Pecos rivers
and their tributaries, constituting the finest stock
region for sheep and cuttle In all the west. Tills
great country Is already well occupied with prosper
ous cattle raisers and wool growers, who make Las
Vegas their business town and supply point. Build

the business houses and residences are handsome
well built and permanent. I. as Vegas Is, without
question, the best built town 111 New Mexico.

Five miles northwest of Las Vegas, where ;hc lial-
Unas river breaks out of the mountains, are situated
the famous Hot Springs. The river here runs fiom
west to east, nnd the springs are on lhc south bank
almost central In a natural park, surrounded by pine
clad and picturesque mountains. Tho water of the
springs Is ascleur as crystal, of a high temperature aud
the mineral constituents aie so subtly dissolved and
blended as to render It wonderfully beneficial lo the
human system. In addition and supplementary to
lhc advuutages possessed by the mineral water, the
climate Is one of the fiuest In the world. The Mon
tezuma hotel there Is very commodious, splendidly
furnished and the management and tables are all that
can be desired, and l he accommodation for guests Is
unsurpassed anywhere. The bath house Is large and
very complete In all Its appointments.
A branch line of the Santa t e railroad runs rroln
Las Vegas to Ihe Hot Springs, connecting with all
trains. At present round-trip tickets are sold from
Kansas City and eastern points lo the Hot Springs
good for ninety days at greatly reduced rates.
About 15 miles above llio Hot springs, ai llennii s

San Miguel Is the empire county of New Mexico.
It Is on the average, one hundred and eighty inlleB
long by ninety-five miles wide, and .containing about
9,4ii.u acres, embraces within Its boundaries rugged
and wooded mountains, extensive plslus and fertile
valleys. Its elevation on the east Is about )
feet and on the west li'U). The llilrly llftli parallel
of lutltude runs cenlially through It. It Is bounded
on the norih by Morn Couniy.un the south by Berna
lillo and Chaves Couutles and extends from Ihe sum
mit of the main range of mountains on the west to
Ihe Texas l'uuhandle on the east. It Is well watered
by Ihe Canadian, l'ecos, liulllnas, Sapello and Tccolo
le rivers niftl tholr tributaries. Between the Supe
lo and Ihe Uallllias Is the great divide which separates
ihe waters flowing Into the Misslsslpl from those
flowing Into Ihe lilotirunde. Tho wesiuru portion of
the county Is mounialnous, rising from tho plains lo
i ne highest range In the Territory, capped with eler
mil snows. The culmliiaiioii uf the mountains at
such a great allliude, twelve thousand feet, causes a
great accumulation of snow, which constantly feeds
the mountain streams Willi pure water, that passes
oil Into nnd through the vullejs below. The Mora.
Sapello, (iulllnas, Tecolole ulld IVcos slreunis ail
have their sources In the sumo mountains and neurly
In the same locality. Tho precipitation f moisture
on the eastern slopes of the luounluins by rain and
snow is greater than III any other portion uf the Tci
rltory. New Mexico Is as large as all the New England
Slates together, with mw uirs unu ;
Ihrowulu. It Is about equally divided In grazing,
agricultural and mining lauds. Millions of acres,1
rich l:i resources, are walling lo be occupied. It bus
he precious metals, coal, lion, slock rang.w, agtleul
lural, horticultural nnd grupo lands, splendid scenery,
more sunshine, more even leuiperuture, more ex
hilarating atmosphere, tlmu auy other country on
this continent, low luxes and an active homo market
for all agricultural products.
New Mexico wauls manufactories of every de
scription,! o farms, guldens, orchards, vineyards,
miners, s lock raisers, a million more Industrious
people to develop lis resoileea and make for them
selves comfortable homes. There Is no belter field

In the states we occasionally have an autumnal day when there is just
a tinge of frostiness in the air and a vast sea ot sunlight through which
the earth exultiugly plunges; not a cloud in tho sky, scarcely a breath of

Mexico basso deligbtful a climate at all seasons of the year as Las Vegag
Hot Springs. From November to April scarcely a day passes during
which the sun does not shine brilliantly ami continuously. During the
summer months, when lower countries are sweltering iu tho heat, there is
tbe same genial warmth and glow without tho enervating effect ccf exces
sive humidity. The average mid day winter temperature is from 60 to
00 degrees Fahrenheit. In summer the highest tlight of the thermometer
rarelyCexceeds 80 degrees at noon, and the average for that hour is only
75. The altitude (7,000 feet above the sea), the picturesque valley, the
high, pine covered mountains, the even temperature, and warm, dry air,
combine to make this a favorite resort for tourists and an ideal place for
Las Vegas Hot Springs is located on tho suotheasteru slopeor.the.San
ta Fe range of the Kocky mountains, six miles from the thrifty city of Las
Vegas. There are upward of forty hot and cold springs, the water from
the bct of them being conducted in pipes to a large and handsome bath
housu of modern construction. Almost all forms of chronic disease yield
to the curative effects of these wonderful waters. It is not claimed nor
expected that everybody will bo made well. It is confidently asserted
that where there is anything left to build upon good results almost always
follow a thorough course of treatment at the Hot Springs, and some re
markable cures bavo occurred. Persons who have failed to receive relief
elsewhere for rheumatism, catarrh, lung trouble and diseases of the blood '
are invited to try the great New Mexico sanitarium. Skilled physician
are always in attendance.
A branch line of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa le railroad connects
the city with the springs. Five daily passenger trains each way render it
easy of access from Las Vegas. Telegraph and telephone lines give ad
ditional communication with the outside world.
Put tho chief feature of the place, asjde from its pre-eminence as s
resort for invalids, is tho Montezuma Ho ki., a commodious and massive
strucluro of stone, crowning a slight emienco near the station. It may
be doubted by those who know nothing n of western push and enterprise
but here, in the very heart of old-Spam in-now-Ainerica, is the finest wat
ering place hotel west of the Allergenics. Perhaps there are a few others
that are larger they are not many. Certainly none are more satisfying
to the eye or more restful to tho tired, dusty, worn-out traveler. Large,
handsome rooms, a fine cuisine, a commanding location and a careful cater
ing to the wants of all guests make the Montezuma hotel peculiarly suita
ble as a stopping place for transcontinental tourists via the Santa he route
ami for all classes of rest, pleasure and health seekers the country over.
