fX I .
It isn't very reassuring, says the
correspondent of a California ex-
change, as one steps of the cars at J
a frontier town, to stumble against I
a man whose belt consists of a .
double row of cartridges, with a .
brace of pistols buclcled on the I
outside, and whose hat-band is the '
dried skin of a rattlesnake. One
recalls with trepidation all that he
has read in the newspapers about
cow-boys and border ruffians gen
erally and almost decides to return
to the train before it is too late.
But a single glance is sufficient to
prove that this warlike-looking in
dividual is probably a demented
exception in an orderbj and thriv
ing town. For the Albuquerque
fat which the cars stop is a bustling
There are two Albuquerques,
you must know, the parent and
child, "umbillically connected bj' a
horse railroad. This younger strip
ling is less than twelve months
old, but has already got upon its
feet and proposes to stand for it
self. The houses are not yef sun
browned. Everything is new and
frontier-like. Two lines of rail
road pass through the town the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
and the Atlantic and Pacific. Tt is
the point at which the latter road
terminates, or rather makes con
nection with the former. There is
a large building ior the general
offices, and extensive structures
for car shops, round houses, ware-
houses, depots, etc. The work of
construction upon this road is pro
gressing rapidly. Already it is
completed nearly to the Arizona
line, and trains are running regu
larly. From the present terminus
it -will be pushed rapidly forward,
and will cross the Colorado into
California at The "Needles. Of
course, so much railroad budding
makes New Albuquerque a lively
place, and houses are going up on
every side. The population is
The "old town," as it is called,
with a population of 3,000, is a
contrast. It is situated about a
mile andaquaiter away. Horse
cars run every ten minutes, and
conduct one into.a past, century
and a different civilization. Every
thing is quiet and dreamy. The
morning glories clamber up and
cover the fronts of houses. The
latter are all of adobe. The
fences are adobe, and the walls and
ovens. So is the church, and so,
as far as one can judge by appear
ances, are the inhabitants, as they
sit listlessly and dream away the
day in the soft New Mexican air.
And such delicious air it is, fra
grant and pure like the. atmos
phere of Paradise. The old church
dates back, no one knows how far.
The present edifice is over one
hundred years old and simply re
places others that were destroyed
by fire. Baptismal records are still
extant bearing date of the begin
ning of the eighteenth century.
The population is almost entirely
Mexican. In the day time they re
pose languidly indoors or in the
courts around which the low adobe
houses are built. Butat evening
as of old, the soft air resounds to
the music of the Castilian tonjrue,
or bears lazily away the strains of
the guitar accompanying the ten
der song of love.
Whether itis the chile Colorado,
or whether it is the law of heredity,
certain it is that the Mexicans
won't work. The drudgery of life
islefftothe Indians and the don
keys. The latter appear to be in
high fayor. They are the common
carriers of Albuquerque. On every
street they may be seen staggering
under the loads which are strapped
'.on to the pack-saddles. Following
closely behind is the Mexican boy, j
who nrfes them now ana then i
with Spanish expletives. The
donkey is an ubiquitous and valu-
able citizen. Were it not for his
services the world might keep its
bundles, for all of old Albu-
In speaking of the Indians it
must not be forgotten that both in j
ancient and modern times the In
dians of New Mexico and its im
mediate neighborhood have shown
themselves to be much superior to
the wandering nomads of the
American Continent. Some of the
most ancient records of civilization
are found in this Territory. Relics
have been discovered which show
not only ingenuity but a consider
able advance in the arts of agri
culture and architecture. One
writer sas that before Thebes the
Indians of New Mexico builded
their cities upon these plains.
The ruins of their ancient struct
ures are still found, half buried in
the drifting sands of centuries.
Beneath the streets'of the ancient
and forgotten pueblo of Zuni are
found the walls of a still more
ancient city- . Near a sacred spring
Lieutenant Whipple found vases
"curiously painted to represent
frogs, tadpoles, tortoises, butter
flies, rattlesnakes."' Not only has
painted ware been discovered, but
pottery with raised designs, elabo
rately and beautifully carved. In
scriptions have been left on the
rocks as puzzling as the cuneiform
inscriptions of Babylonia. Hun
dreds of feet up perpendicular
cliffs dwellings have been found
on narrow ledges, accessible only
by steps cut in the face of the
rock. Watch towers and fortress
es of great antiquity are still in
existence. Houses were built five
or six stories high and measuring
between :W0 and -100 feel in
length by 150 feet in width. The
Indians who built and inhabited
these dwellings had an elevated
form of religion. They believ
in one Supreme Being, whose
name was too sacred to be pro
nounced. John T. Short gives a
very inteiesting account of their
faith. Montezuma was their Merit-
ator, born of a mortal mother hv
the Supreme Spit if. "When he
created the Apaches lhey were so
wild that they ran away.
But whatever the ancient Indian
of New Mexico may have been, it
is certain that the Pueblo Indians
of the present day are far in ad
vance of their North American
brethren in general; they live in
towns and are peaceful and in
dustrious. A large proportion of
the fruit around Albuquerque is of
their raising. They occupy some
eighteen pueblos or towns. The
little village of Isleta, about ten
miles south of Albuquerque, is a
fair sample of their pueblos. Most
of their houses are built without
windows or doors on the first story,
being accessible to tho top by
means of a ladder, and then down
into the house through a hole in
the roof. In lime of war or at
night the ladder is drawn up.
Under the Mexican regime these
Indians voteri and had all the
privileges of citizens. They not
only raise fruit, corn, wheat and
vegetables, but they, manufacture
curious Indian pottery which is
sold to travelers and sent East in
quantities. On the streets of Al
buquerque the Indian women vend
their fruit, carrying it from point
to point in baskets, nicely balanced
on their heads.
Albuquerque is the center of a
very considerable mining excite
ment. Chief Justice Prine de
clares that New Mexico has more
gpld than California and more sil
ver than Colorado. Prospectors
are out in every direction, and a!
large number of mines have been
opened, with good results.
The Urave Custer's Memorial.
Lieut. Charles F. Roe, Adjutant
Second Cavalry, has reported the
completion of the erecting on the
Custer battle-field the monument
which was sent last year to Fort I .
Custer by order of the Secretary
of War. The monument is in the
form of a low obelisk, in two blocks
resting upon a step, all of granite.
It is in three pieces, weighing re
spectively 10,000, 12,000 and 14,
000 pounds. They were, during
the winter placed on a wooden drag
or sled, one at a time,aud hauled to
the battle-field, crossing the Little
Big Horn three times on the ice.
Twelve mules were harnessed to
each runner of the drag or sled,
four abreast. The' moved the
weight without much difficult',
and Lieut. Roe having prepared a
crane of ash timber, cut on the
banks of the Little Big Horn
river, properly rigged and stayed,
he with the aid of Troop C, Sec
ond Cavalry, commanded by Second-Lieut.
Fuller, detailed for the
purpose, erected the monument
upon a masonry fouudatidn pre
viously prepared. Ten feet from
the foot of the monument, and
surrounding it on all four sides, a!
trench was dug, into which were
gathered all the remains of those
who fell in that fight, including
all those who were with Reno, and
for this purpose the vicinity was
thoroughly scouted, and all were
brought together and securely and
deeply buried at the foot of the
monument, except the remains of
Lieut. Critenden, whose grave was
not disturbed, and over whom was
erected a monument sent for that
purpose by his father that being
the understood wish of Gen. Crit
enden. The Custer monument is six
feet square at the base and eleven
feet high, and being raised on a
mound, its top stands fourteen
feet above the top of the h'll. Its
center is within six feet of the
spot upon whicii were found Gen.
Custer's remains. It beats the
following inscription, to which are
j athled the names of all who fill in
"In memory of Ofiier.s and

A Plying Newspaper.
Tho Hailway Journal, -. news
paper containing the latest intel
ligence, is printed and published
daily in the train running between
New York and San Francisco.
All the news with which its col
umns are filled is telegraphed from
different parts of the States to
certain stations on the litje, there
collected by the editorial staff
traveling in the train, and set up,
printed, and circulated among the
subscribing passengers, while the
iron horse is persistently traversing
plains and valleys, crossing rivers
and ascending mountain ranges.
Every morning traveler may have
his newspaper served up with his
coffee, and thus keep himself in

the wide world dnring a seven
days' journey covering over three
thousand miles of ground. He
