The new hotel will probably be opened in a week or ten days. It is situated in the center of town adjoining R. S. Price's store. It is to be managed by Messrs. Hurd & Kelly. I believe they have not decided as yet on a name for it. The White Sulphur Springs associa tion will have a business meeting on April 1st, to discuss plans for improve ments, etc. As yet they are "on the fence" as to whether they will build a new hotel or not. It is badly needed, and I am of the opinion they will build a second Grand Union. They have commenced to improve the property already by building a bath house over the mud bat...

SHE WANTED TO DIE, But the Vigilant -Minions of the Law Wouldn't Have it. On Saturday Mrs. Pete Lauzon was incarcerated in the body of the jail for drunkenness and disorderly conduct. This extreme punishment was more than her sensitive nature could brook, and she firmly resolved, then and there, to put an end to the period of her existence. But how? Morphine, arsenic, nor none of the most approved drugs, handy at such times, were to be had, and even the ready knife and revolver were denied her. But she did not despair. Woman's ready tact came into play, and tearing off a strip from the bottom of the skirt of her dress, she fashioned it into a rope and proceeded to hang herself, with a marked degree of success, in the cell. But for the timely appearance of Jailor Caldwell, who cut her down, she would certainly have succeeded in her design. Afterwards she tore up her shawl and tried it again, but with like success, as a strict watch was kept on her movements. She came so near succeedi...

Another Indian Raid Feared. LouI ,,tfu o, N. M., February.-Mr. Bajss telegraplhs from Owen's station, 12 mjiiles south of Clifton, that he saw fifty Indians near that point this evening. They appeared to be traveling from the direction of Clifton and moving toward HIorseshoe . Canon. The New Mexico and Arizona telegraph line being cut be tween Clifton and Owen's ranch makes it impossible to say whether Clifton is 1,einii raided or not. H. and F.

N Aft @ .im-iwriuraNITHeves. .JA lodge of Piegans were camp On the Marias last week when a rovin hand of Gros Ventres came along, and Jvi ct arrnmis, took every horse they had, quite a little band, setting the Piegans afoot completely on the prairie. The thieves started off as fast as they could move toward the Milk river, while the poor Piegans in utter dispair. Wended their way to Fort Assinaboine to lay the burden of their grief before the "White Chief." And their mission was not fruitless. Col. Ilges lent a willing ear to their story, and not only that, but sent a detachment of troops in pursuit of the thieves, and ere this, doubtless, the animals have been turged-over to their rightful owners. Col. Ilges' action in this matter is an innovation and will be heartily commended by all. A few such wholesome lessons will stop in a meas ure the stealing of horses by one tribe ,from another, one of the forms of Indian deviltry that should be shut down o speedily. Terrible if True.

Another Coal Mine. A gentleman of this city yesterday showed us a piece of coal which he claims is cannel coal. He tells us that the vein from which the piece was taken is at least six feet thick, and it is near enough to this city so that coal can be laid down here for less than $12 per ton, and money be made at that. We failed to ascertain where this new mine is located, but are promised full particulars within a few days. If the gentleman's claims are founded on facts it will not only prove a fortune to the lucky discoverers but a great benefit to the people of our town. The Travels of a Bottle.
