BAS5ES A SO!C. ftüBSCKIPTION, ri.00 A year. talarcd at the Post-office In Lo/dsbarg u lAoiwd CHm Matter. THURSDAY, FEB. 23, 18S». Quite a number of co{>ie9 of the Eagle bare been subscribed for by parties interested in Lordsburg and are 'mailed to persons in the East and elsewhere.- All suclKTrho b«fe been receiving the paper, or may hereafter, need have no fears that a bill for.snb^ription will be presented, as we^do not gend the Eagle to a party until ordered and paid for. Denn)crHtic National Convention will be held in St. Louis, June 6th. Me. W. W. Cokcora*^, the noted ph¡lanthrr»piát, of Washington, D. CT., who has been ill for some time" is reported this morning to be slowly dying. ^    , • The President and Mrs. Cleveland lefi Washington last Tuesday to attend the Sub-Tropical Exposition at Jacksonville, Florida. Secrétary and Mrs. Whitney and Colonel and Mrs. Lament accompanied them. - Tlie Committee appointed to select the Soldiers* Home near Santa Monica' says:    ’‘We are exceedingly well pleased witli this section of the country, and the scenery, climate and a hundred other natural advantages, and have no hesitancy in telling you that the Southern California Veterans*-Home will be the grandest and prettiest spot on earth.” The directors of the Atchison road .state that the sales of the new bond> of tj;ie company places it in a strong position for operations this' coming year. Every need of the year is provided for as far as can be foreseen, and the company will have a large balance for working capital.^ and for possible emergency, such for instance as any piratical attacks by iU com-"petetors. The Atchison will not,, it is stated, aUempt any addition to it.-i mileage, excepting the completion of -f’’’'» work now on band. / . A t'alUornla ^llmais. Bumlnere and wit||eCj aró 4o much alike that one -ÍA puzzled to choose between them. Tbc^ are few summer days or^wllich tbe mercury passes 90 dfgrecs Fahrenheit, yet few in winter when it docs not reach-70. The surf that beneath the bright sky and gentle breeze rolk so la;ily iu long miles of snowy foniu ciianges iU temperature scarcely four degrees from' summer to winter. This makes sea bathing an alaiost every day posibili ty; and one may bathe either in the surf or in the still waters of the bay; live two being lOJ yards apart nt the bat h houses. -U^6n the higher "parts QÍ the peninsular even hoar frost is unknown, and on the low pa4s is seen only once or twice in occasional years, and then is gone with the sunrise. As frost can occur in this section only on perfectly'clear nights, tl^ following day is sure to be bright and warm. * At this season,* too, 4he sea breeze has fallen away to mere breath of air, .so that the greater part of the winter days differ slightly in teiiiperaturo from the average summer day. Grass, trees and dowefs and even the tropical plants grow in midwinter with a vigor unknown upon/ most of the low parts of th® mainland where the temeratnre falls loo much by night. We find here what can be found in few other piA'ts bf the world —a place to escape ^th c.dd of winter and the    of summer, where the winter íca, like the winter land, is a plaything^instead'of a terror. And all this in the center of a vast amphitheater, where great mountains sR as silent spectators looking down upW the mightieot of océans.—T. S Van Dyke, in February Overland., Meeting of KaUroad Men in San Francisco. From what canS)c learned regarding the meeting of the Carson and Colorado railroad directors, it is believed that the line is abíHit -to branch out with a new enterprise, by which it ^’ill be given a direct outlet to the seashore. There" w’ere gathered in in this city to-day H. M. Yerrington, president of the line; D. A. Bender, secretary, and Directors M. B. Lang-horne, S;..P. Smith, W. S. Wood and James H. Dobinson. It w’as learntid from cutsiole sources that thege gentlemen met to consult upon the project of the extension of their line spiuh from Owen'.s Lake to Los Angeles. D. 0. Mills, who owns the controi'lling interest in the road, is said to* have become dissatisfied with the volume of business done by it, and is anxious 'to better the condititm of the property. ■The only way that this, can be done, he thinks, is toJ)nsh it on to Los Angeles. A cyclone siruck Mt. Vernon, 111., on Sunday, which virtuldly destroyed the town. It came frAm ^le north-we.st, Hwecping around in a half-circle, and leveling half the town. Then a fire started, and in the strong wind was soon beyond control. Above the roar of the wind could be heard the shirks of the dying, who were half ■buried in the debris. The latest re-poit placi‘8 the killed nt ^9, and ICO wounded, somq of whom will die. Buildings were twisted and wrenched and then dashed to pieces in total wrecks. Property loss estimated at upwards of $úOO OCO, ^—    General Ignorance. ^me of the new-spapars not long a go .made no end x-f fun of a college graduate who cou\d not tel^ who discovered-A mcric.a. Oh, wfll, my son, that is one of the things you cari^t fearn in college. I am like the above graduate, I do not know, who discovered America. If you know, or think you know a man who does know, 1 wish you would tell me. I would^ive some money to learn just that much. I-am also away down in the spelling class. I can not spell Sluvikcspear as Shakespeare himself spelled it. I wish j'oii would, tell me the proper way of spelling tiiat great man’s name. I do not know why there are so many gray horses, and no grey colts. I do not know whether the egg began with thO' hen, or .the. heif started with the egg. I can’t understand why we can’t find the north pole when we know righ^wiiere it is. don’t know why a matinee should come in the afternoon. I don’t know why a man wears buttons on the tails of his coat. I can’t what earthly use an eh-phant’s tail is to him. I don’t under-stanmw)^ people in towul are always wild to go into the. country, and people in tlie country are crazy to come to town.v. Why don’t they change places at once, and be done with it? I do wish I could somewhere hear of a wise man who would devote a few hours every century to teaching me a' few sirnple tilings that everybody ought to kno^, and. that everybody,, t-xcept you and I, secme to knoAw> already.—Buriiclte.( r - Gne-of Liueoln^s Jokes.

There are on tha earth now only six large kinds of reptiles, and these uot over twenty five feet iu length.

One d>>,y a delegation of clergymen called upon Lincoln, to pay respects, and one of I hem asked him if he ever sought counsel and guidance from the Lord dur-ing that lime of his great rcsponsi-rdlity and anXieiy. ‘‘Yes,” replied Mr. Lincoln, “I pray ev^ry night before I retii'e. I think-of ilie.hundredi- of thousands of soldiers camped in the South, the Loys in blue as well as the boys.in grey, ar.d I pray that the one may be supported iu their efforts to preserve the Union and the other shown the error of 'their unholy strife. I* think of the thou-hands of deserted homes in the North, »)f the thousands of weeping women and fatherless children, and I pray God to give them stpengUi to. bear, their bereavements and the wisdom to see that    husbands,    son.s and fathers have died 'fighting for the right.

(New York Press.)    , A gentleman who, by the way, is quite a celebrated organist himself, was wandering ihrough the organ loft of St. Andrew’s .church when he i    " slipped and fell into the diapason p.ipe of thff huge instrument. He went down feel foremost into the ^cone of tho pipe until he was firmly wedged. The more he straggled, tbe tighter he wedged hinkelf, and, being above twelve fee^Urom the top of the pipe, the ail .8oon\|^egan to give out, and he became frightened at the idea of dying in the prison where accident had lodged him. His frantic shouts for help did nt) good. Affer spending a night in this dangerous and dismal hole, and having in his struggles .'trippc^ off his coat, he wound it about his waiát, so that no air cquld escape from below. Soon he heard the sonorous tones qf the organ and ascended to pipe until he could reach the top with his harids.V Then he knew that - I    )\ air had been pumped in below him, and that by gradual compression of I he air he had been forced up as vthrough *&' pneuniHiic tube. As he drew himself out of the pipe he gave one hearty and fervent shout of “Saved!” which rang above the tones of the organ and nearly frightened the organist to death.
