Oro is one of the big" cities buried by the glaciers somethou- .--,- r JBven Kansas is offering to help the treasury out by exchanging gold for greenbacks. There must be some mis lake about the "per capiter." A. D. Gilkeson of Wakeeney is one of the,men who would like to be U. S. Attorney for Kansas, but it is safe to say he will not be. INGALLS says 365,000 miles of wind . rr i - passes tnrougn nansas annually, it is well known' that its favorite route is through Wichita. IT now seems probable that the state is to escape the threatened affliction of an extra session of the legislature. Let us be thankful. It is becoming more evident every day that cholera will gain a good foot hold in the United States next summer,' And it behooves the authorities to see that every precaution is taken to keep the sanitary condition of the city as nearly perfect as possible. The colored people of the country eeem to be getting along fairly. It is stated that they support seven colleges, .seventeen academies and fifty schools, in which there are 30,000 pupils. They bane 1,500,000 children in the common schools, and 24,000 teachers. More than 2,500,000 of the race can read and write. In the matter of acquiring property the showing in favor of the colored .race is equally as creditable. Taking 11 the facts and circumstances connected wilh that race in this country and their advancement along the plane of citizenship has indeed been marvelous. What the nature of the great city was before its destruction is not known. Its present name alone is a link be tween the past and present. Ora is Sreek for "what's left" or "ashes" or "remains,' or a great many other words of similar construction. Yet from the ashes of the ancient capital Df an unknown empire has sprung a modern town with modern ideas. Yet the habitants are superstitious about their surroundings. They know that down 500 feet beneath them are the remains of citizens swept out of earthly existence without a moment's warn ing-. They know that there also is the ruins of a great and majestic city, whose church spires nierced the clouds, whose public buildings En. lie did Ziot h&VA Inner cfW the phenomenon, for the camel eocSi reached the edge of the clearing and iisappeared in the timber. 6i said that the burden on the camel's back iooKed to him like a man, but he wasnt ure; and there was a general idea that 3i was lying, until a report came from the valley of the Verde that the camel had been geen there.

As it jumped something fell worn it ana tne prospectors, who followed after, found a man's head, dry and withered, but with flesh and hair still on it. No one saw the uncanny beast for some veeks after this, but finally it appeared to the northward. One of the cowboys belonging to the Anchor-J outfit rode up about dusk to an abandoned branding corral. Through force oi naoit tne cowboy's nata was out and he lassoed the beast. In about two minutes he wished that he hadn't. The camel charged him and his horse, which while it knew all about steers, was unversed in the ways of camels. When the horse tried to rear up and pirouette so the charging beast would pass by, as anything in the cow line would have done, he was caught by the camel on the throat, and camel and man and Korse went down together. The camel did not stay to tight, but went off as hard as he could Two Letters. - : I. '. Ketjbex Backwoods, Smith's Corners, Ariz.

The Picajune, after Grover gets through with his junketing tour.should at least favor him with a marked copy of its suggestions, in order that he ahould not be ignorant of the available talent that lies hidden in the editorial rccms of that 1 he oversight is no doubt owing to the great editor's modesty. WORLD'S Fa IK OPENED. On Monday the President "touched the button" and set the whole machinery in motion at the great World's fair. At the touch the shrill whistle of thoufiands of brass throats reverberated through the great World's fair city. Thousands of human beings of all cations and climes witnessed the occurrence. Thousands of yoices sent forth a shout when the hundreds of fla repref enting every civilized nation of earth, were unf urltd to the breeze, chief among tnem being Old Glory. It was not only a thrilling and grand sight, but caused every heart to throb with approval and admiration of the spectacle. It was the culmination of the greatest show of mechanism of man the world ever devised and put into execution. But the moat pleasing part of it to patriotic Americans was, that America, the youngest of all the nations represented, stood conspicuously in the lead in all material exhibits of the arts tad sciences. SOMETHING awftjl tore through the FENCE. land white marble pillars were solossal in proportion with those of the world's later period of civilization. Some of the relics of that ancient city will be seen at the World's Fair. What a book of revelation they will prove to the millions of sight-seers who will visit Chicago, each with his own peculiar idea of the mission of man on earth. But to return to the story that comes from Oro. One of its superstitions has just been laid bare. Many have heard of the "Red Ghost" of Arizona. For ten years this peculiar "what is it" has been the terror of the people Oro and tributary towns, has killed several people and by many it was believed to be a supernatural visitor from the an cient city of the dead. So fied became this belief that excavating for hidden treasures was generally stopped for several years. But that did not put an end to the Red Ghost. It appeared in the shape of a camel mounted by a silent rider. The queer apparition was first seen by two Mexicans on the banks of the San Francisco River. Their tent was thrown down over them and they awoke in time to hear the tread of galloping hoofs and a terrible shriek. They got clear of the wreck in time to see something taller than two horses tear into the brush. They tola their story at Oro the next day, and people went out to investigate. They found strange tracks in the creek mud and saw where the brush had been broken down by the passage of some great beast. But the mysterious trail was soon lost among the rocky hills, and that was the last of the Red Ghost for some days. His next appearance was many miles away at a sheep ranch on Eagle Creek. The herders were out with the flocks, and two women with the children were alone in the ranch house. One of them had just gone to the spring for water. The other heard the baj'ing of the ranch dogs and got to the door in time to see something awful tear through the fence and down by the spring. She nearcl her sister crv out, but did not . dare to go to her assistance. Instead she kept the children indoors and barricaded the cabin until the men returned at night. When she told them they took their guns and went to the spring. They found the woman dead, trampled and crushed as though a troop of cavalry had run over her. When the Coroner came up from Solomonville the only witness to the apparition testified and tried to describe it. It was red, she said, very tall and ridden by a devil. She could give no clearer description than this. She had only seen it for an instant and then covered up her lace and prayed. The Coroner's inquest resulted in the usual verdict of "death in some manner unknown to the jury,' and the Coroner's jury went home with half an idea that one of the woman had been murdered by the other, who had invented the story of the apparition, doubtless having heard of the experience of the miners on Chase's creek. After this innumerable stories were brought in about the mysterious phan- j torn. One man declared that he had pursued it to the edge of one of the ; precipices in that country and that the i phantom never stopped but galloped j straight across the vallev of Blar lr ' raw-cow- I boy got to camp he explained a rood deal of the mystery of the Red Ghost. The pack on his back was nearly gone, but there was no question it had once ! been a man. That was the last of the Red Ghost in a supernatural capacity. He was probably seen many times, but the pack being gone from his back there was nothing to distinguish him from other camels, and crraduallv the Red Ghost from being a terror degenerated into a story and then into a tradition. A few days ago, however, Mizoo Hastincs, who has a ranch a. litt,l above the gold camp on the San Francisco, woke up one morning and saw through the window of his cabin a big red cSmel banqueting in his turnip patch. Mizoo took a dead rest over the window sill and blazed awa v. He srot the camel. When he went out to examine the beast he found him covered with a perfect network of knottAd rawhide strips. They had been on him so long that some of the strands had cut their way into the flesh. The camel was all scarred up and had evi dently had a very hard time. Now everybody down in that country is wondering whether the man was tied . The Boisterous Atlantic Is a terror to timid voyagers?, scarcely less on account of the perils of the deep than the almost certainty of sea sickness. The best curative of mal de mer is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, which settles the stomach at once and prevents its disturbance. To all travelers and tourists, whether by sea or land, it presents a happy medium between the nauseous or ineffectual resources of the medicine chest, and the problematical benefit derivable from an unmedicated alcoholic stimulant, no matter how pure. The jarring of a railroad car often produces stomachic disorders akin to that caused by the rolling of a ship. For this the Bitters is a prompt and certain remedy. The use of a brackish j water, particularly on long voyages in the tropics, inevitably breeds disorders of the stomach and bowels. Hostetters Stomach Bitters mixed with impure water nullifies its impuritfes. Similarly it counteracts malarial and other pre-judical influences of climate or atmosphere, as well as the effects of exposure and fatigue. Use it for kidney complaints, rheumatism and debility.
