that sho seemed unconscious of them,

glanced out of the corners of her

for justice in the matter. The result
was a trial. To establish undeniable
evidence that lie (Hadden) was sub-

is said that he applied iodine iu
streaks on the back of the boy, which
showed that the boy had been pretty

was called, who pronounced it a pret-

While the senate committee on ter-

the bills for the admission of the ter-

the prevailing opinion is that the bills

sibility that the subcommittee on Ari-
zona will not act upon tbe direction of
the full committee to prepare the bill
for the admission of that territory for
preseusation to the senate after the
meeting of Wednesdey. The advocates
of admission admit nodoubt as to the

pays debts, furnishes means early in
the season, which later the cotton
crop supplements and enables the
planter to provide for winter, as wheat
in a measure prepares for late sum-
mer and fall. That this territory will
be a great wheat producer is an estab-
lished fact; and in cotton it far sur-
passes in producing power any of the
so-called cotton states. No fertalizer
used. The only reason cotton is not
more generally cultivated is tlie mis-
