THE DAILY TOMBSTONE
The I'ioneer Daily ot the Camp.
VVW IMiKI EVERY EVENING,
SAMFS J. NASH.
To-moriow, the 25th day of Decern
ber, the anniveisary of the Birth of
thii founder of the Christion religiou.
This day in particular is accepted
throughout the Chribtian world as an
auspicious, time, when happiness en
dears each scene, and causes us to for
get the vicissitudes of life. 'Tis then
the yule log hums brightly, the mis
tletoe looks greenest and the Christian
heart responds to the cadence of the
("uiiitmux bells, as in clear and sonor
ous voice they tell of the advent of
the Cluiti:ui anniverMrv. The chil
dren .ill lok forward to this glad, for
.-aula !laii? will surely remember to
iill their stockings with the good
tiling.- which they have been so
path-mly wining for. Let us hope
that few of them will be forgotten.
The rider branches of families usually
indulge, perhaps, too freely, in table
joys; too much turkey, chicken salad,
gg-ii'ir ;lm) punch, and suffer in con
sequence next day; sadly realizing
that "pitting tipy is divine, but get
ting soLcr is the devil." The recol
lection of what they have suffered
prepares them a week later U swear
off, as is u.-ual with many who are in
the habit of "taking a little for the
stomach's sake." There is, however,
a class who seldom suffer from excess
of indulging the appetite on Christ
mas. Their exchequers are not
sufficiently plethoric to admit of
a sample of edibles that dis
arranges the digestive organs, or of
the cup that not only exhilerates but
in it- s'ibt'.ient ff'-i-t leaves a re-
:m ml..' .J ill" than agreeable.

int. -re; in the Christian anniversary
aie the improvident and homeless,
wlio'i- licuriM penury has so embittered
thtir life as to leave no passage for
brighter days; but even these are not
debaned, tor christian charity, with
both hands full, offer them the enjoy
ment of a Merry Christmas.
The people of Tombstone and Ari
zona are particularly blessed, for while

Great preparations have been made
for the grand ball to be given by
Queen Lodge, A. O. U. W, of Bisbee,
this evening, and several parties from
this city have gone over to participate
in the same.
Deputy Sheriff Norton, of Bisbee,
arrived in this city this morning and
arrested one Dan Dean, who was
charged with leaving the camp with
the intent of defrauding his creditors.
Norton and prisoner started back for

The arrival of two large freight
teams this morning in front of Sinn
merfield Bros' store, caused our le-
porter to pause while going the rounds
of the city for news. After waiting a
few minutes he observed several large
packing cases being unloaded. This
excited his curiosity, and he repaired
to the interior of the store where he
found them being unpacked, and no
ticed that they were filled with boys
and men's clothing, which are espec
ially suited for the holidays.
We also observed several cases
which contained a full line of holiday
presents such as silk handkerchiefs,
plain handkerchiefs, embroidered
handkerchiefs, initial handkerchiefs,
and in fact almost everything that is
suitable for holiday presents. Mr.
Summerneld stated to us that he had
employed a force of six extra clerks,
so that everybody could be waited
upon at once and not be kept waiting.
We would advise all parties desiring
holiday goods, or who would like to
