SUPPLEMENT TO THE ARIZONA SENTINEL.
Vol; 1. ARIZONA CITY, YOMA COUNTY, A. T., SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1872,
The Biggest Hail-storm, or the
Toughest Yarn of the Season.
Twenty-2fine Years Daily at Do
minoes and Beer.
The force of habit is well illus
trated in the conduct of two aged
deciples of King Gambrinus, who,
during a period of twenty-nine
years, have not omitted an after
noon visit to a certain beer hall in
this city. There is something pe
culiar, if not romantic, in the lives
of these old gray-haired citizens.
They always appear together at
about the same hour of the day or
evening. Sit at a certain table,
and always play a few games of
dominoes, and have used the
same set of blocks during all these
years. It is esteemed a privilege
by the persons about the bar to
keep those domino blocks sacred,
and no other parties are allowed
to play with them. As the hour
for these daily visits of these an
cient customers approach, the fre
quenters ofvthe hall usually have
the seats -at. the particular table
vacant. -The old men come, the
dominoesare produced and placed
on the table, two glasses of beer
are drawn for them, the games
are played, about.- two glasses of
beer are drankby each, and then
they rise from- their seats, each
pays for what? he has drank, and
the daily visitors take their de
parture. Fore twenty-nine years,
without a single day intermitted,
has the same scene been enacted
by the same men and about the
same hour in the evening. -They
never drink to excess, take about
the same number of glasses of beer
each day, remain at the hall about
the same length of time, and come
away together. Both have grown
old since they commenced their
visits. The city has grown in area
and population to;five times it size
when these old customers became
patrons of this Palace of Gambri
nus. It is curious to think that in
this period they have made 10,
585 visits. Sunshine or storm
summer or winter, these veterans
are always expected, and have
never yet disappointed the ex
pectation. St. Louis Republican.

Coliseum on Sunday afternoon

.V'i'onn fit v. A 1
On the 27th of May, a party of
forty, composed of New York
bankers and millionaires from the
mining regions of Ponsylvania,
with their ladies, including four
Topekans (not millionaires,) were
traveling on the narrow-gague
railroad from Denver south. To
the right of the railroad, a half
mile off, at the base of the moun
tain, could be seen two or three
monuments, that place being the
outer rim of the enchanted park.
A large number of passengers
started off to et a nearer view of
the scenery. While the dark
clouds began to gather, which be
tokened a storm, some of tho
men hurried back to the cars, out
the Topekans, one of the million
aires, and a traveling Jew con
cluded to face the music, and see
what was to be seen. One of the
Topekans had got on the top of
one of the lowest monuments,
which wassomo twelve feet high,
and commenced making a speech
for Greeley. He. had but just
commenced, when he was struck
by something which jammed in
his stove-pipe hat, and which, at
the time, he supposed to be a stone
thrown at him by the boys. But
they kept comming thicker and
faster, and was not long in learn
ing that he was in the midst of a
terrific hailstorm. All huddled
together on the lee side of the
rocks, and dodged the hail as best
as they could. Such a scene is
rarely witnessed even in the
Rocky Mountains. The air was
black, the thunder reverberated
through the mountains, and the
lightning shot across the sky. Cat
tle came bellowing down from the
plains on the east to get the pro
tection, afforded by the timber
which skirted a little mountain
stream. After pouring down for
half an hour the hail lay all over
the valley six inches deep, and
after an hour's hard steady rain,
they were still three inches deep.
We afterwards learned, from u
reliable authority, that jna valley
three miles east of us, a, space four
rods wide, for a longdistance, was i
covered four feet deep with hail-;
stones. Topka. Kansas) Com-'
