The atmosphere yesterday was hazy
and dull looking all day and contin
ue 1 throughout the night. The tem
perature has been the same for several
days. A few clouds were visible at in
tervals yesterday, but soon disap
peared. The air is heavily laden with
electricity and gives a sense of stillness
next preceding a severe agitation of
nature. The opinion is prevalent of
an approaching calamity either a dis
astrous storm or a severe shock of
earthquake. The setting sun last
evening appeared of a deep red color
and was observed by many people
until he disappeared behind the moun
tains. All nature seems in a state of
There is a city ordinance prohibiting
the burning of anything on the streets
that from now'on will be strictly en
forced. It is extremely dangerous to
bum anything in the streets, as sparks
are liable to ignite the buildings, how
ever carefully they are guarded, and a
conflagration in the business portion
of the city would be disastrous in the
extreme. Many complaints have been
made and the city officers are deter
mined to prohibit the practice. Waste
aad garbage can be put into something
prepared for that purpose and hauled
outside the city limits, where it can be
destroyed if necessary.
Mr. Lawler, of the Hillside mine,
took yesterday's train for Garland's,
in Big Chino valley, to ship 24 tons of
second, class ore, which is expected to
yield $200 in silver to the ton. He
ships his ore to the Union Public Ore
Company, of Denver. A recent ship
ment netted him f 341 per ton. Prof.
Blake visited the Hillside a few days
ago and is, we hear, enamored with
what he saw in the Hillside and Eu
reka copper mines. It is said that
there is in sight in the Hillside two
and a half million dollars worth of
ore. Prescott Courier.

Pulque is the National drink of the
Mexicans. As is generally known it
is a fermented juice from the maguey
plant. Eterybody loves it. All the
people drink it, and the children cry
for it (not like Castoria, but literally).
The amount consumed is immense.
While at Apizaco on the Vera Cruz it.
R. a short time since, the Superintend
ent informed me that the freight on
pulque from that point alone to Mex
ico, averaged ocr $1,100 daily.
I recently visited a pulque farm
near this city to observe the process of
its manufacture. As soon as the plant
is supposed to be fully mature, a cir
cular incision is made at the bate of
the plant where the branches all
sprout. The piece cut is then rait-ed
and there is a cavity like a large bowl
filled with a liquid resembling lemon
juice. This is called "agua miel" and
it is delicious when sucked through a
straw in the cool of the morning.
This liquid is extracted with a Hyphon
and placed in a large vat or tub where
it is allowed to ferment when it be
comes pulque. The process is simple
aud is going on all the time. Pulque
must be used fresh, and it comes in
fresh every day. 1 do not think I
would ever lecome a pronounced pul
que drinker,. Its appearance as pul
que is not inviting, and its odor is ex
ceedingly loud (so to speak). When
poured into a glass it resembles butter
milk, that has lecn a little soiled.
When you drink it down quickly
(which you had better do the first
time if you wish to drink it at all) it
has a taste of vinegar and water.
After it is down, then comes the
"grand finale" taste. The "ultimo
adioe" a sort of farewell gastric climax,
whose staying qualities are immense,
and which "sticketh to you closer
titan a brother." This last saory im
pression is a compound flavor of rose
water, coal oil and tar.
You will remember that you have
drunk pulque for some time. Your
first night's dreams will be of pulque.
I11 the exuberance of your somnolent
fancy, you will imagine that oceans of
pulque are pouring down .Popocatepetl
in stupendous acequtas, while your
entire physical existence has been
merged into one gigantic mouth for
the reception of this fragrant beverage.
But don't let us be too severe on
pulque. It has its virtues like every
thing else. Pulque is a wonderful
nervine. No disease of the liver or
kidneys can exist among the devotees
of pulque. Blight's and kindred dis
eases are unknown among the bibul
ous pulqueites. This is an argument
of a very appealing character in be
half of the national drink. This is
the judgment of physicians and others
of large experience. I might take
pulque as a medicine, but as a bever
age I prefer something less odoriferous
and more palatable.
Very few venomous reptiles hae
been seen in this vicinity this season,
notwithstanding that every tenderfoot
expects to see one behind every bush.
About the only venomous reptiles in
this Territory, that are at all numer

About 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon
George W. Deighan fell dead from
apoplexy in the office of the late
Tribune. He came originally from
Brazil, Indiana, and in that State had
been a member of the Legislature. At
one time he owned and published a
prosperous newspaper in Indianapolis.
Coming west six or wjen years ago
his fortunes led hint to California,
New Mexico and Arizona. His exten
sive information and intellectual abil
ity commanded the respect of all who
knew him intimately. He was buried
under the auspices of Phenix Typo
graphical Union No. 237, a large del
egation from which accompanied the
remains to their last resting place.
Rev. Norton officiated and undertaker
Bacon took charge of the interment.
Deceased was about 42 years of age.
His friends noticed a singular coin
cidence as the remains lay waiting for
burial. Cher his breast and folded
hands was placed an old proof sheet
the title of which read, "Caught at
Last," and whose concluding word was
"reputation." Phenix Herald.
Miss Gee Toy, a daughter of the
Flowery Kingdom, but not a descend
ant of the goddess Diana, was ar
rested yesterday for omitting to con
tribute to the exchequer of the city.
This afternoon, at 3 o'clock, she will
make her defense lefore Police Judge
Hawke, during which time His Honor
will probably need the services of
eleven or nine interpreters and a good
sized chunk of ice. The almond-eyed
damsel has heretofore been a resident
of Third street.
The washed-out portion of the Ui
bee railroad had not been repaired up

C. W. Beach left for his ranch in
Kirkland valley to-day. The people
of northern Arizona are anxiously
awaiting the day when President Har
rison signs his autograph to the docu
ment making him United States Mar
shal of the Territory. Thus far, south
ern Arizona has carried away the
principal appointments, and the mar
shalsbip should come to northern Ari
zona, Mr. Beach being the choice of
Republicans. Prescott Journal-Miner.
A cloud burst occuned a few days
since on the divide between the head
of Ash creek and Cherry creek, the
waters being divided between the two
streams, both of which were higher
than ever before known. Had the
volume of water not been divided, and
had all of it entered either stream, it
would have caused great destruction
of property, and probably loss of life.
As it was, considerable damage was
done. Prescott Journal-Miner.

The Iron Duke to His Soldiers.
"Do your duty," were tho words of
Lord Wellington to his soldiers just
before the battle of Waterloo and his
tory tells us how well they obeyed.
The same advice might properly be
git en to every living man at this time.
There are many men who would do
their whole duty in time of war or
great need, but when there is no such
great occasion, neglect their plain
simple duties to their God, their fam
ilies and themsehes. It is not for
want of honor nor because they do
not love their families, but from pure
neglect; as an instance, statistics com
piled by the national authorities show
that moro deaths result from bowel
complaints than any other one cause,
except consumption, yet not moro
than one family in six are provided .
with medicines that will relieve or
cure the diseases. It is the duty of
eery man to protect their families,
and they are certainly at least, guilty
of criminal carelessness if they neglect
to do so. The best remedy there is
for the purpose only costs but 25 cents.
