It is better to buy before stock gets
too well appreciated, and reap tlio
bonofit of the increase Thoso who
hang baok snd wait and listen to
every attempt to decry a good prop
erty, are just the ones to buv into the
wrong stock at tho wrontr time.
The market is full of manipulators
endeavoring to depress tlio price of
good properties in order to buy in
There will, some day, bo a rebound
in tho prices of such properties that
will startle the niggards who hang
back as if afriid of their own shad
ows. As wo have stated before, an
ounce of foresight is worth a pound
of hindsight, there could be no
greater truoism in its application to
good mining stocks. N. Y. Daily
"We most heartily concur in tho
sentiments of the Stock Report as
above expressed. We know of sev
eral mines here in Tombst no where
tho stocks to-day are a b'g buy at the
present markot price, and yet people
fight shy of them. Tho timo will
come, and probably soon, when there
will bo a boom on these same stocks,
and then thoso who now ignore them
will be eager purchasers at fire times
what they are quoted at at this time.
It is so in almost orery mining camp
of noto in the United States. Tho
time to buy is when stocks are low
and before the mines have become
exhausted in dividends. This state
ment his been.so often made by re
sponsible mining journals that it has
lest all the charm of newness, but it
has lost none of the force of truth
fulness on that account. It should
bo indelibly impressed upon tho mind
oi every man ana woman who aro
desirous (of investing In 'mining
stocks, and then (hero would be less
causo for regret at the outcome.
Lai:ge portions of Colorado are
now under snow, and minincr will
soon bo suspended until next sum
mer. That is ono of the disadvaii
tages under which southern Arizona
does not labor. Hero mining opera
tions can bo carried on during the
whole year, and now is the busiest
season. Then Arizona ha3 other ad
vantages which capitalists sliou'd not
overlook. Arizona's ono railroad,
the Southern Pacil'c, has done more
to make the country accessible than
the same length of road could do in
any other mining region in the
United States. Arizona's mountains
are peculiar. They aro not a sdries
of almost unbrokon ranges, rising
higher and higher, but isolated peaks
and short ranges surrounded by vast
plains, which furnish tho finest nat
ural roads to be found anywhere in
tho world. This makes our mines
accessible. Immense sums do not
have to be expended to get to the
valuablo deposits which lie hidden in
almost erery mountain. .Nature has
provided highways and a climate
which permits the miner to pursue
his avocation uninterruptedly. Cit
izen. IMOUS Dog. '
From the Phcnlx Herald.
Liut evening a dog became master of the
situation in tlio M. E. church. The cou.
gregalion had just began singing tlio first
hymn when 1ns dogship rushed up to tlio
front seut in u very pluyf-il manner and
jumped upon it, in the midst of some l
the ladies. The effect was magical. The
second line of the choitts was abruptly
broken oft', right in the middle, and the
singers were soon convulsed with, laughter.
The dog was led out of the church and the
singing again started up. Some parties at
tbat moment coming Into church opened
the way for the dog, and he again joined
the fingers on the tront seat, and the sing
ing stopped just where it did before The
minister seemingly lost control of his risi
bilities and joined in tlio laugh. The lady
owning the canine tlnally succeeded in
Retting ritPof him and services proceeded.
It would be an excellent ide.i if people
would leave their dogs at home, as they
arc an intolerable nuisance In cluucli.
Wo counted the in this same church last
Sunday eveniug. Giro your dogs moral

Don E. Pacheco, who came up
from Mexico last week, informs us
that when ho loft Janos there were
about 450 Aptcho Indians, including
he bands of Nana, .In and Chino.
encamped at that place. These In
dians, says Pacheco, seemed to be
enjoying themselves. Their camp
was the focus of hilarity and mirth;
war dances a"d debauchery were
freely indulged in. They have sev
eral hundred head of stock, horses,
mules and horned cattle, brought
with them from Arizona and Now
Mexico. These they live upon, and
buy corn from the people, make tiz
win, and take life easy. The Indi
ans appeared to be on the best of
terms with the people at Junes and
the Surrounding country, and with
tho exception of an occasional petty
theft, they were g.ving no trouole.
It was rumored that the Mexican au
thorities were preparing to take ad
vantage of the unsuspecting savages,
and lure them into a trap and mas
sacre or take the whole outfit pris
oners, but Pacheco thinks there is
no movement of the kind contem
plated. The Indians have manifested a
friendly disposition toward the Mex
icans, and so long as they remain at
peace, the authorities will avoid any
trouble with them. Sr. Pacheco
says these Indians have a wholesome
dread of New Mexico and Arizona,
and will not return unless to make a
raid and again get back into Chi

From the Citlzsn
A Detroit dispatch gives the fol
lowing account of the bravery of a
single woman in contrast with a lot
of men. United States Marshal
Wilcox, of Denver, arrived at the
House of Correction last night, hav
ing in charge a life prisoner, Henry
W. White, a desperado lately con
victed ot robbingastage coach near
Dei' Norte. 'ewMexTco. about five
months ago, and sentenced to impri
sonment in the Detroit House of
Correction for life. About three
miles east of Pokagon, Cass county,
on tho Michigan Central railroad, the
convict picked the lock of his hand
cuffs with a toothpick and ferociously
attacked the marshal. Ho first struck
him on the head with his handcuffs,
and when Wilcox grappled with him
in a dazed way SVlnte struck him
again aud brought him to his knees.
There were seventeen men in the car
who saw the whole affair, but they
left tho officer to struggle with 'the
desperate man In the fight Whie
seized Marshal Wilcox's revolver and
tried to shoot him, when Mrs. Smith-
son, the wife of a Denver engineer,
on her way to New York, and the
only woman on tho car, sprang upon
the sea; behind the strugg'ing men,
seized the convict around the neck
and disabled him to a sufficient ex
tent to enable tho marshal to once
more secure control of him. White
says if he could have got a bullet
through Wilcox he would have cov
ered the passengers with the revolver
in one hand while he untied his an
kles with the other, and then "gone
through" every one of those infernal
cowards in the cars. The marshal
says that Mrs. Smithson declined a
rewaul, but he was going to send to
her New Yoik address $500 before
he is forty hours older.
" Are you particular," asked a gen
tleman the other day of -Mr. Moody,
"as to what church your, conveits at
tend after they have found peace
through your ministrations?" " Not
at all," answered the great revivalist,
adding: "Excuse me a minute while
1 tote up these figures six times 842
is 5,052, and 3x5,052 makes 15.15U.
Say, Sank," continued the great apos
tle, calling to his mate like one dove
to another, "What's our commission
on $1,513, and six cents for hymn
books since Monday?" "$U42 80,"
promptly responded the sweet singer
of Israel. "Not so bad lor three
nights, eh, Sank?" ' 1 should smile,
Mood," retorted the Wandering Boy.
And then recovering him' elf, Mr.
Moody tinned to his visitor and re
sumed: "No, wo are not at all par
ticular. In San Francisco we con
verted a Roman Catholic reporter,
who gave up entirely indulgence in
spirituous liquors at his own expense.
In this caso there was great outpour
ing of the Spirit. And, after we
have done our woik, wo leave all
these thousands of regenerate souls
in the hands of their own pastors.
Good morning." And, as the door
closed, Mr. Moody called through the
open door to his partner: " Say, Ira,
cable for 10,000 mote books, and say
we must have 40 per cent in future,
or we'll change our base; and fix me
up a yarn for the matinee, about a
little girl who died in peace of the
measles something 1 can cry over."
And so the good work goes on.

reporter that the report was current and
universally believed in that place that five
rustlers turned up their toes to the daisies
in the neighborhood of Shakspeare last
week. It seems tbat they came in to take,

arms, which they refused to do The cit

deputy sheriff that the owner was looking
alter his propcity. Mr. Bodig laid th
case before several of the leading citizens,
wlio held a mcLtiug and investigated the
matter, and gave the deputy sheriff three
hours to leave to.vn. It is needless to say
he lelt, as the cilizeus are well organized

Sunday afternoon, the 11th instant, a
row occurred in a saloon in I'henix over a
game of billiards, between a man by the
name ot Col burn and one .lansen, who
was called upon as a bystander to decide
some disputed point. Meeting on the
street shoiMy after, Colburn began again
upon Jancen, when they-drew their guns
and opened up, Janscn receiving t.o
wounds, one of which may prove mortal.
Colburn is now in jail awaiting an exam
ination on a charge ot an assault with in
tent to kill. The Hei aid gives the follow

was quite a lively scattering among those
in the vicinity, which is unlike the meth

remain unconcerned spectator):
The shooting affair of yesterday present
ed some ludicious scenes as well as un
fortunate ones. Our reporter lias gleaned
some ot them.
A Chluuman who was standing near
Rosenthal's old corner received a bullet in
the instep, bieaking the bone. On being
lilt, he hallooed out, "Ouch 1 Me no caree
get shot ; but me got money pay doctor."
A bullet parsed very closely to the face
of Mr. II. II. Liuvillc, and the muzzle of
the pistol was so near his face that the
powder buined him.
Mr Sharp was standing in the door of
Tom Smith's, and a bullet lodged in the
casing of the door. It is tinnccevary to
say that Mr Sharp got inside ol the saloon
in slum u.etic.
An officer of tho U. S. Army was seen
coining on a dead run around Center
street, while the shooting was goini: on,
as if an Apache Indian was alter him.
The Indians who were on the street at
the time, took sudden leave, and tumbled
over each oilier in ihrlr efforts to get away
from the flying bullels. They had not

the Chinamen tiettliijr Away
I'rom the Albuquerque Journal.
One of the numerous Chinamen who
have come to this countiy wandered away
from the Pacific slope and established
lumscll at Cranes, and went into the
laundry business. He lived quietly,
worked bard, and rapidly accumulated
wealth wilh which to return to his father
land. All went well with him until
Weanesday night, when a rustlei, whose
name could not be learned, went into the
l.itle shanty of the Chioaim.n aud delibe
rately went through the establishment for
money and clothes to the amount of $100.
After commuting tiie lobbery he jumped
the town and went to" Gallup. The Chi
naman would bland almost anything, but
he thought that was going altogether too
far. He brooded over the matter until
yesterday morning, when he decided upon
his plan of operation. He armed himself,
and took the first onportunity to get to
Gallup. On his arrival there, he hunted
up his man, and, without making any
introductoiy remarks, he pulled his re
volver and put three bullels into his car
cass. Botli the Chinaman and his victim
bonded the train, which arrived in this
city last night. The rustler was put olf
at Wingate, and is probably dead ere this.
The Chinaman continued to Cranes, and
went to work again. The inhabitants of
Cranes generally justify tiie action of the
pigtail washmns, anil It is sale to infer
that he will not be molested again for
some tunc to come.

He has been out on a prospecting trip for
the last alx weeks, having spent mint of

quite- a number of locations, anil has
brought iu sonic very handsome spec

pectcd in this country for the last sixteen
years, he declares that he never stnek bel

Four JlrNsaseM on One Wire at Once.
, The Montreal Telegraph Company
have now iu full operation the in
stiument by w ich four messages
may be transmitted over the same
wire at the same time, two operators
working at each end. Yesterday the
" quad" was tested on a number 9
(small size) wire, and worked suc
cessfully over a distance of 385 miles.
Several well-known United States
telegraphers were advised of the re
sult, and they aqreed that it was a
marvelous feat on so small a wire.
The instruments will soon be work
ing in connection with all the leading
points, and tluj result expected by
the company is that delay will bo re
duced to a minimum. The differ
ence between the time taken by the
message on the wire on the o'd sys
ti m and on the new is extraordinary.
The company hopes to make the
public service very much better now,
as carte blanche has 'been given to
introduce any improvement or super
ior appliances into their services.
