iluci upon her by this unwelcome
discovery. In vain did the distracted
husband assure her there was some
mistake. She took up the envelope.
It was correctly addressed even the
initials, by no mean common ones,
were exactly correct. Struggling
against suspicion, the woman lound
hersell iu a bad state indeed, aud how
matters could be righted was the puz
zle of the husband. The letter, when
road through, was infinitely worse,
tor the maimer iu which it dealt with
tamily affairs tended to confirm sus
picion. The gentleman in such a dilemma
wrote to the t nief ot Police or Mon
treal, enclosing the letter, which was
dated from Montreal, and explaining
the serious complications it had
cased. By aid of detectives the
was soon found, aud then interrogated,
with a view to prosecuting her for
blackmail, for she had demanded
money iu the letter. Her answers
were straightforward. She promptly
ail milted having written, nskiug
money, adding that it was nobody's
busineas whether she wrote to her bus
band or not. ' But the genllemau is
not your husband," said the officers.
Indignant at this, she spoke rapidly,
in the course of her explanations incn-

writ.eu to was a waiter at the hotel,
and wuen further inquiries were made
as to whether there was a waiter of
that name in the house, the blackest
colored gentleman, with white apron,
stepped lurwant, and haying lecelved
the epistle, wanted to know who had
the impertinence to open another gen
llemau's letters. He bore exactly the
same name as the person whose "trib

beiur ot less eminence, had been
overlooked. Apologies were ex

Some people never know when they

wiih a ataieu Isiaud man when he re
sisted the efforts of a lady to kiss him.
This is certainly a very unusual sort
oi a man, and it is probable that an
other such character has not lived iu
the present ccntu-v. His attempts to

right-minded man would think of in
terfering with the healthful and
pleasant practice of kissing, and he
who discourages a lady in the pursuit
of au innocent pleasure like that de
serves the severest condemnation.
Kissing never killed anybody, and
unless it is done in au unpardonab!y
awkward war it is a very nice thing
to do. A man who won't allow
a lady to kiss him shows a lamentable
ignorance of human rights conferred
by the Constitution.

O.v'E of the ludicrous incidents con

Tucson stands to-dav as the most
promising city in the south wettern
: portion of the United States. It is
! tho guteway to the whole mining
region of Southern Arizona prob
ably the richest mineral section in the
world. Tbt-already meagre-developments
of our mines Jihvo advanced
Tucson to a degice of importance
wholly undreamed of by its inhabit
ants one year ago. What may we not
expect when the thunder of thousands
of stamps can be heard at every point
of the com pap?, and tho black smoke
from innumerable furnaces seen in
every direction from our city? The
new discoveries of rich mineral de
posits constantly lieing brought to
light about us surely indicate the pos.
sibillty of such a picture. Even
down to the very doors ot our city the
precious metals lie hidden among the
rocky hills awaiting capital and mus
cle to send it forth to swell the wealth
of the world.
This is not the gauzy fabric of a
dream, but possibilities warranted by
existing facts. Our ancient nad hon
orable pueblo will yet become the
Denver of Arizona, and nothing but a
stubborn determination on the part of
its properly owners to remain insig
nificaut can prevent it. The frequent
envious sneors of some pretentious
mining camps are good evidence
of our growing importance, and wo
can afford to indulge them in these
pleasantries which can do us no harm.
The best judgment of the most impar
tial observers gives to Tucson the
prospect of a great future, aud no
man of intelligence can know the ex
tern of the resources upon which this
prediction Is based without acknowl
edging the truth tlietcof.
Ever since the discover' of the
Tombstone and Patagonia mines it
has beon the custom of prospectors to
go ir. that direction in preference to
all others; but of late, prospecting
has become more general, and now it
is confined to no particular locality,
and the result is that more good pros
pects have beeu discovered within the
past two months than for 111 entire
preceding year. Canyon del Oro,
Saddle Hock, Toruleta mouutains,
Silver Bell, CabaTji, Sauta Itila, and
the entire region of country west ol
Tucson is almost daily sending in fine
specimens of ore. Many of the ledges
from which this ore is obtained are
known to be large; they contain c p
per, silver and gold, and we may look
for rapid advancement iu the region
of country above referred to during
the present ear. A mill has been
ordered for Canyon del Oro; a imelter
is to be built at Silver Bell at once,
and the prospects are favorable for a
ten-stamp mill for Cababi, and a mill
for the lower San Pedro. Taking It
all together, the outlook In the west
ern portion of the count is now
scarcely less promising than" the smith
eru portion of the county, aud Pima
will continue to hold her place amoug

A Summer Kesorr,
By a very little expense a few en
tcrprising persons cbuld supply the
people of Tucson with a want long
needed. The oppressive heat of the
summer months render a convenient
summer resort almost indispensable.
It has been customary for those whose
meaus enable them to indulge in the
luxury, to spend the heated season at
the seashore at Santa Monica and
other coast towns. The great dis
tance is an obstacle, however, that
many object to, and a less remote re
sort is desired.
The summit of the Santa Catarina
mountains offers all the advantage of
temperate climate, pure and spark
ling water in plentiful quantities,
magnificent scenery, and plenty of
shade. The balmy atmosphere is lad
en with the balsamic odor of lofty
pines, so refreshing and grateful alike
to the weak and strong." There is also
excellent hunting amoug the turkeys,
pigeons, quail nud other game which
abound. JS.isy access to the summit
can be had by a route recently dis
covered, and then is no reaton why
the peculiar advantages ot the moun
tains for a popular and fashionable
re-ort should not be availed of by our
The -Mexican Border.
We heartily approve of the actioD of
Governor Fremont in his determina

the southern border of our Territory,
and we are glad to learn that the
movement will be heartily seconded

made full' aware of the state of affairs
in that country some three months ago
by Don Rafael Varrias, Mexican Con
sul at this place. Tho prompt action
taken by tbe United States and Mex
ican authorities musb result iu lasting
good to both countries, and is the only
sure way of suppressing lawle-suess,

A paradise for sportsmen exists

This new mining district, located
about 40 miles northwest of Tucson,
near Red Rock station on the South
ern Pacific Railroad, t coming into
great prominence for the extent and
exceeding richness of its mines.
The Old Boot, Blue Coat and Cop
fir King mines have ench been de
veloped sufficiently to w irrant the
erectiou ol a 30-ton smelter, nnd from
the character of tho ores a repetition
of the successes at Bisbee Is antic
ipated. These three mines are the
property of the Hutchuca Miuing
Company, organized under the laws
of Ihe State of New York, wiih Guy
R. Pelton us President, R. Dannheim
us Secretary, and Z. Staub as Treas
urer. Mi. W. B. Scott, Superin
tendent of the company's mines,
has already started to San
Francisco to purchase a smelter
which w ill be put in operation as scon
as it is possible to erect it. The .

siderable iron, it is thought will be
easily smelted with the natural flux
A new town hat been started iu the
district called Pelton, and a slure
opened. .The district, it is said, com
prises an immense uum':er of very
rich ledges, all carrying more or less

of which, the Morarch, shows a 35

very high, both In silver nnd gold.
There is plenty of wood, aud an abun
dance of water can be nad by dig
ging. A siaee and express line from Tuc
son to Pelton will be started next Mon
day by Frank O'Brien.
Thcie is evidently a bright future
for the Silver Bell District."
San Pedro DUtrict.
Mr. F. W. Peabody was iu town to
day from the San Pedro Mining Dis
trict, which comprises' u section of
mineral country at the confluence of
the San Pedro and Gila rivers, about
forty miles from Casa Grande. This
district, from tho exceeding richness
of its mines, is destined to excite a
great deal of uttentiou. Mr. Peabody
has some of the most beautiful speci
mens of ore we have ever seen, taken
from the Walston mine, owned by
himself and J. S. Walston. TIk-v are
not only beautiful, but rich in silver
almost beyond computation. Mr.
Peabody has just shipped to San Fran
cisco, for a working lest, about S00
pounds of ore taken from a depth of
fifty feet, which assays au average of
1500 per ton. Au 18-inch streak ol
this mineral occurs in au eight-foot
ledge of quartz that assays over $80
per ton. Messrs. Peabody & Walston
have a veritable bonuuza 111 their mine
and fully deserve their good fortune
for their perseverance and industry.
We acknowledge a pleasant call to
day from Mr. H. Dinginan, of the firm
of Clum & Dingman, collection and
claim acents of Washington, D. C
Mr. Dingman is a director of the Con.
Arizona Mining Company, and will
proceed to Arivaca to-morrow with
Superintendent McCafferty to look at
the properties ot the company. Mr.
Dingman Is much pleased with ll c
outlook for Arizona, and is agreeably
surprised to find Tucson a place ol
such present activity and prospective
We have been shown samples of
coal taken from the newly diicovetcd
coal fields in Pinal county, about 70
miles from Tucson. Thu specimens
are fair in quality, aud we arc assured
that an immense deposit exists in the
vicinity of the discovery. The prop
erty is "owned by David Anderson, Ihe
discoverer, M. L. Power, James LU
lie and others, and if developments
prove equal to their expectations they
have a big bonn---za.
Ms. Henry CAJtriitLt. showed us
some specimens of ore to-day, taken
from the Ohio mice, iu the Santa Rita
mountains. At a depth of thirty
ihree feet the ore runs 44 per cent, in
copper and 38 in silver per ton. The
ledec is a very wide one, appearing
more like a quarry than a mineral
vein. Mr. Campbell has a good prop,
erty in the Ohio, and is to be con
gratulated. QciTE an interest was manifested in
the cause of temperance at the merl
ins last nicht. Tweuly-six iddies
and gentlemen signed the pledge and
also a petition for a lodge dispensation.
An organization of a temperance so
ciety wa efleclcd wiih a view to bold,

eral public art iuvited, and whee
temperance topics will be discussed.
Tbe meeting adjourned till next

An old Comstocker, writing from
Tombstone, say.-.: "I have seen
lots of men who were high-toned
bosses ia Virginia City rustling for
hash here. They are not so pmud as
when they had rich relatives and in

Ostrich Farminc In Arizona.
It is hard to introduce any new
branch of industry into a country, but
especially so when that branch of in
dustry is not understood by tbe peo
ple who are calculated to engage in it
So little is known of ostrich farming
in the United States that It is even
diffi Milt to get intelligent men to talk
about the business. But the lime is
not far distant when we shall have
plenty of intelligent men to take hold
ot it. Less than a dozen year ago
the world had to depend upon the
bushmen of South Africa for tbe sup
ply of ostrich feathers. The supply
was meagre never equal to the de
mand. Some intelligent men of South
Africa who had become posted ts to
the habits of tho ostrich, conceived
tho Idea of taming the birds and look
ing after them as they would any other
farm stocK. At that time there were
but a few hundred blida in tho entire
country. At first but ono or two men
engaged in the business, but they suc
ceeded so well that others soon fol
lowed their example, and now th;y
have several thousand ostrich farms
and over 150,000 birds. They enclose
a large tract cl land, the same as our
large cattlemen do iu the Western
Stales, with a thrcr.board fence; this
ihey were compelled to do, as the os
trich is a very fletl bird, and cannot
be controlled by herders as cattle nnd
sheep. Many of the men who
ensrasred In the business in
South Africa have amassed for
tunes In a lew years. They produce
five broods of about twenty chicks at
a brood, in a year. The young ones
may be plucked when eight months
old; ihe first plucking Is worth $5 per
bird. At sixteeu months old they
may b plucked ngain; this and all
subsequent plucking are worth 25
per head, and they may be plucked
every eight months. They commence
breeding at four years old. Full
grown ostriches are worth from 500
lo 800 per pair in South Africa. By
the figures above lurnished ll will be
seen that tba profits are enormous.
Now we dcsliu iu call the attention
of our people l this important indus
try. Tl.ere :i no plar c in South Africa
bt-tu.r adapted to tLe raising of os
triches than the lower Gila, from
Tucson wcs, and along ihe Colorado
rivrr. n wherever water can be found
to the o '. nds iu Western Arizona.
There are millions ot acres ot Govern
ment land now lying idle in Atizonn
which is peculla:ly adapted by cli
mate and phvsical formation to os
trich fanning, which will become
valuable in the near future
A ll.enry Country.
The Nevada papers never lose
au opportuniiy lo give a hit at Ari
zona. They select for publication
only th03e extracts that speak ot its
disadvantages and shortcomings. The
Eureka Sentinel, under the caption of
"A Dreary Country, publishes the
following, it being but a specimen ol
the attention which ocr Territory re
ceives in Nevada:
L. K. Urais, writes from Florence,
Atizona, to friends In Winnemucca
that the country is ten times more
desolate than Nevada. There an
some good mines discovered, and, at
there are a good many capitalist
ready to buy iniues, it ought to be a
ood place tor prospectors ; but labor
is not in demand, and there are thre.
men for every job. All the freighting
business is carried on by companies
w ho have their own shops and emDloy
their own mechanics.
We do not think that any claims
were ever advanced Iu favor of the
superurlty of out agricultural re
sources. It is true that some portions
of the Territory possessess fine bodies
of agricultural land, but thu larger
portion Is composed of a semi-desert,
with low mountain ranges appearing
here and there. Arizona's prosperty
is based almost exclusively upon iu
mineral resource, and ihe develop
ments of a few years to come will
astonish the world, Nevada included.
There Is practically no limit to its
mineral beds. They appear la almoil

In this sad bereavement, the sor
rowing parents have the deepest sym
pathy of their many friends. The
funeral ws largely attended by tot
most respectable portion of our citi
zens, and during the funeral service
many a sigh escaped from warm
hearts, and not a few tears suffused
the eyes of the ladles present. It is
thus that the affection of the human
heart i very often drawn to the things

a little treasure in heaven, and il it
the drawing of one link more towards
it. The child never dies It will live

Senator Logan continues to stick
to his statement of last week that Rob
ert Lincoln would be a3slgued a place
in Garfield's Cabinet. Robert Lin
coln, unlike most of the sons of great
men, is a man of good parts. Instead
of becominsr the protege of rich men,
as the Grant boys, he studied law and
went to wtrk to mako his own living,
and has rapidly risen in his profession,
until ho is now ono of the leading
Iawvers of Chicuffo. The appoint
ment of Robert Lincoln to a Cabiret
nosition would prove highly gratify
ing to the people, and would be a
noble act on the part of President
elect Garfield. We are heartily in
favor of such tin appointment; let it
no longer be said that " Republics ara
