Subtarranean Rooms Discovered
in El Paso.
El Paso, Tex., May 8. Work will be
commenced in El Paso in a short time
on a Federal building for a Post Office
and Custom House, for which an appro
priation of $150,000 has been made by
Congress. The site selected for the
building is near the center of the city,
on St. Louis and Oregon streets, and is
still occupied at present by an extensive
old adobe structure one story high, cov-
enng an entire block, into which are
crowded together several hundred Chi-
nese and where all their peculiar indus-
tries are pursued. There are plenty of sitting of Mr. Hardy, wife aid four chil

The cause of this scare hsa inr.t leaked
oi t. 1 he whole of the region has bean
undermined by secret tunnels and exca-
ated rooms, in which not only opium-
smoking and gambling has been carried
on but other dark deeds perpetrated,
without the white population of the cit
ies and even the owners of the real estate
having suspicions of what was going on.
It is said that the Chinese have been in
the habit of keeping the bodies of those
of their countrymen who died in these
subterauean chambers, and boiled the
skeletons clean of flesh, and then send
ing them carfully packed in trunks to
San Francisco, as occasion offered, for

He'd Meal the Coins Off a Corpse.
Newpolt. Neb., May 8. Jos. Peters,
a farmer, living three miles from New
port, undertook a little job on last Wed
nesday night which would have done
honor to Robin Hood in his palmiest
day. It was no less an undertaking than
to steal the roof aff a sod shanty while
the inhabitants were wrapped in swett
repose. Jus plan failed to inateralizc,
however, as the watchful tiller of the
soil awoke and succeeded in cap
turing the would-be robber. - He was
taken before Judge Weaver this after
noon and will have fifteen long, quiet
days in the county jail to sadly reflect
on what might have been. Perhaps has
figured in several pieces of bold thievery
in this vicinity.
Demolished by Lightning.
Waco, Texas, May 7. During a severe
thunder storm this morning the lightning
struck the residence of Mr. C. E. Hardy,
on Clay and Tenth streets, and utterly
demolished one wing. The family, con-

they received a severe shock. The bolt
came down and struck the reef ol the
wing on tho east side and tore that part
of the building completely away from the
front and crushed the beams and plarks
jn small pieces. Fire was started from
the bolt but was quickly extinguished by
the rain, which was falliusr in torrents.

Is a Dark-Bav Pacer, 15?, hands hirh, weighing 1,200 T'Ourids. ' His
close, compact torm and noted reputation for endurance and tpeedy
proginy li'ave justly earned for him the reputation, and encomium trout
the Editor of the "Spirit of the Turf" that he is one of the Best Sires
ot the age. Ilia record is S:2G, and has paced trial miles in 2:1C.
His eolts, Little Baby, 2:27-, and J. W. Jluey, 2:21, with more to
follow in the charmed circle this summer, is certainly a great showing,
and affords the public in this vicinity a grand onportuniiy to get
valuable horses at low prices. His service ot$lo.6, with $2.09 added
if not paid till after loaling, or $20 to insur colt to stand, is only the
price of a good ordinary horse, while horses of Siiakkji Boy's blood
lines receive trom $100.00 to S300.00 in other localities. Horses of
this kind, if not wanted for sporting purposes, can do more general
work on a farni, on account of their extra nerve power, than unwealdy
draft horses, and can go to town or to meeting in one half the time,
and time if money. Owners ot fine mares have a rare chance now for
one of the cheapest horses in the United States. Embrace the opportunity.
