A tradition has long prevailed that the
waters of Lake Tahoe, California, would
not sustain a human body and that many
daring swimmers had perished by vent

bit scientific expedition 'nave exploded
this deluiion by swimming in the lake.

Special Dispatch to the Epitaph.
Lordsburg, N. M., Dec. 24. The
Indians wounded three men to-day near
Duncan. One of the injured men will
probably die. The Duncan rangers
composed of the best men in the com
munity, are now on their trail and will
follow them until they are overtaken,
which will probably be to-morrow.
Lordsburg, N. M., Dec. 24. A
fight occurred near Duncan to-day, be
tween a party ol men and quite a large
body of Indians. The attack was made
from an ambuscade of rocks and but
little lime was afforded the whites to de
fend themselves. Several volleys were
fired by the Indians, resulting in the
wounding- of three of the whites. On
account of the lateness of the hour and
the excitement occasioned by the un
expected assault of the Indians in such
close proximity to the settlement, the
names of the injured men could not be
ascertained. One of the men will prob
ably die. Intense excitement prevails
and the disposition of the people is for
pursuit and utter annihilation of the
murderous gang. The rangers were
notified and are now on the trail with a
strong probability of overtaking the
band before to-morrow. '
The various exercises at the school
house yesterday were of a very interest
ing character. The Tombstone schools,
under the present excellent management,
are deserving of greater attention' from
our citizens. A reporter of the EPITAPH
was present yesterday, and was both sur
prised and pleased to observe the mar
velous progress made , in our public
school during the past year especially
pleased to witness the wonderful results
effected by kindness and good manage
ment. If this school is not the largest
in point of numbers, the Epitaph is
thoroughly convinced that it has no su
perior in the territory as an institute of
learning. Miss Herring has an adapta
bility for the position of principal in a
marked degree, and the government and
control of the school under her super
vision is up to the highest standard.
Miss Herring's experience in the graded
schools of New York have admirably
fitted her for the laborious and responsi
ble position she now occupies in Tomb
stone. Miss Hart, Miss Ellison, Miss
Haines. Mrs. Shaw and Miss Powell are
a very competent corps of teachers, and
to their intelligent and able efforts and
manner of imparting knowledge to their
scholars is largely due the phenomenal
success and proficiency attained by the
school. In conclusion, the Epitaph
would suggest to the parents, of our
scholars the advisability of visiting more
frequently our city schools, as their pres
ence tends to encourage the children and
incites them to be more studious.

The following contribution to the col
umns of the New York Graphic is from
the pen of our esteemed townsman, Rev.
J. H. Young. The Graphic says: "Ob
viously Rector Young draws a sharp line
between mugwumps and genuine inde
pendents. His muse may be a little rug
ged and sardonic in tone, but nuisances
are more effectively abated with carbolic
acid than with rosewater."
Oh, all ye tad mugwumps, come, listen to me,
While I sing ol our national pet

Must, by llits, be considerably wet.
But this rainbow of hope on your cloud yon can

The dance at the skating carnival last
night was largely attended. The lovers
of this aluring sport are always sure of
an enjoyable time at this popular resort.
The EPITAPH lives' in the hope that
before another Christmas rolls around,
the Apaches will be removed from our
borders and peace and prosperity will
come to our people.
A party of Boston capitalists are en
route to Arizona, for the purpose of pur
chasing the ranch and stock of H. C.
Hooker. The agent informed an Epi
taph reporter that if they failed to make
the purchase of Mr. H.,some other portion
of the Sulphur Spring valley would proba
bly be selected. The desire of the com
pany is to scenre a track of land,
on which a large number of imported
cattle will be placed in the near future.
The Epitaph will welcome the gentle
men to Cochise county, and trusts that a
suitable locality may be obtained for the

Aspen, Col., Dec. 17, 1885.
J. V. Vickers, Tombstone, A. T., Agent
ot the Travelers Insurance Co., Etc.;
Dear Friend: Yours of the 8th inst.
is at hand. Enclosed please find your
receipt, signed, for $560.71, so promptly
paid on account of my accident in Bis
bee in June last.
Your kindness in advancing me $160
before I was able to present my claim,
and the promptness of the company in
the settlement of my claim, I shall never
forget. Yes, renew my policy when it
yuns out and send me a bill for the pre
mium to this place. I am now engaged
in superintending James Carr's business
in this place, and collecting and keeping
his accounts. If necessary, change my
rate accordingly. Yours very truly.
Thos. J. Jones.
Thos, J. Jones paid $25 premium. His
policy assured his wife $5,000 in case of
his accidental death, and him $25 a week
if accidentally disabled. By accidental
discharge of a rifle he was totally dis
abled for about twenty-two weeks.
Therefore he received from the old relia
ble Travelers $560.71.
