question. It was reported that Spealier
Clark was in favor of it. The Puos-

wishes to deny this accusation. He is
not only opposed to the thieving
scheme, but will work nights and Sun
days to dofcat tho measure. There is
a stiong delegation al work at the

Tho opinion of many citizens of
Tombstone has been asked regarding
the scheme and all are opposed to the

chiso Nogales and the country along
the line of the N. M. and A. road.

Tax payors in the proposed county
of Miles nhould open their eyes before
being led to the slaughter by a few
schemers who are bent upon ruling
the new county for their private bene
fit. They should stop and consider
before endorsing any such scheme as
is proposed. It is not justice to the
taxpayer of either section of Cochise
to entail an additional expense upon
their present over-taxed condition. It
will cost just as much to run either
county as it docs at present to run the
county of Cochise or in other words
one-half the taxpayers will have to
stand the strain after division that we

in reality mean a rale of G per

From the Two Republics we learn

of tho Republic, Gen. Pacheco minis
ter of public works having submitted
the following suggestions tocongresss.
In order to improve the current kilver
dollar the words "tin peso" are to take
the place of "ocho reales." Instead of
indicating the fineness in "grammes,"
it will be expressed by a simple deci
mal number. To do so, a slight
change will be made in the fineness,
which will be 0.903 instead of 0.9277.
The present design will bo better exe
cuted and rendered more artistic. As
regards small currency, it is proposed
to coin a new piece 20 cents. The
design on the twenty, ten and five
cents pieces will be similar to that on
the dollar. The coinage of fifty-cent
and twenty-five cent pieces is to be
discontinued as they do not harmonize
with the decimal system. In the in
terest of silver no smaller gold piece
than $5 is to be coined. Tno design
of the gold coin is to be improved and
altered. On tho observe it will re
semble the silver coin, but on the re
verse will be the bust of Hidalgo, in
;irder that no one may mistake a gold
coin for a silver one. Copper coins
will bear on tho obverse the national
arms, as on tho silver dollar. The exe
cutive is to be empowered to use
bronze instead of pure copper, as it
wears better and is not likely to be
melted down for use in tho arts.

As a rule, all animals aro cleanly by
nature. Even pigs will keep clean If
they are not confined in a pen or yard.
Brushes and combs, says Golden Days,
most animals carry with them, and
ducks and divers are always supplied
with oil in a handy reservoir.
Birds especially aro very particular
about tho quality of their "toilet dust,"
and equally nice as to tho water in
which they prefer to wash. Some use
water only, some water or dust, others
dust and no water.
Partridges aro a good example of the
dusting birds, and aro most careful in
tho selection of their dust baths. Dry
loam suits them best; but perhaps their
favorite placo is a meadow where a few
turfs havo been removed. There they
scratch out the loam, and shuffle back
wards under tho grass roots till their
feathers are full of tho cool earth. In
wet weather they find, if possible, a
heap of burnt ashes on the site of a
weed fire, and dust there.
Sparrows, on the contrary, always
choose road dust, the dryest and finest
possible. Meadow larks, also, aro fond
of the road, and dust there in tho early
morning. But they, too, have their
fancy, and choose tho dry, gritty part,
where the horses' hoofs tread.
Wild ducks, though feeding by tho
salt water, prefer to bathe in fresh-water
pools, and will fly long distances inland
to running brooks and ponds, whore
they preen and wash themselves in the
most vigorous and thorough way.
But though passing so much time on
tho water, ducks seem to prefer a shower
bath to any other; and in a heavy rain
they may bo seen opening their feathers
and allowing tho rain to soak in, after
which thoy dress the whole surface with
oil from the reservoir which we men

Most of their toilet is done with the

Kasswood can be compressed to a very
large extent, and will swell out again to
its original proportions upon being
steamed. This property is utilized in
tho following manner: A piece of the
wood is subjected to great pressure un
der a die or stamp. This stamp presses
down parts of the soft wood, in a more
or less olaborato pattern, lower than tho
rest of tho surface. This process can be
quickly performed, and tho piece of
wood is then passed to a planing ma
chine, which in a twinkling planes down
tho surface of tho wood just even with
tho top of tho compressed pattern. The
piccois then taken over to tho steamer,
where tho warm, damp vapor soon swells
