Ir the enlistments of American volun

longer, at the ; present rate, tbe U. S.
department of justice will probably
issue special instructiooe to its officers
with a view of stopping the augmenta
tion to the Cuban ranks. Tjeee enlist
ments are in direct violation of tbe
neutrality laws and are prohibited under
eevra penalties. For accepting a com
munion to serve against Spain, a oouo
try with which the United States is now
peaoe, the 1 eoalty prescribed by sec
tion 6181, Revised Statutes, ia $2000 fine
and three years imprisonment, while for

hiring any one to enlist, the penalty is
almost aa heavy, being a maximum of
$1000 fine and three years imprisonment.
Tee joint reeolution to pay all tbe

tbe seseion and was at once signed by
SDeaaer Reed. This completed it bb
far aa congress wta concerned, but in
order for it to become effective it was
necessary that it should have the sig
nature of tbe president. Unfortunately
for the 500 employee of tbe capuoi, tbe
president is now shooting cucks at
Georgetown, S. C. In order to secure
his aignature to tbe bill it will be neces
sary to send it to him b a epecial
messenger. It is not likely that this
will be done. If the bill should reach
him it ia probable that tbe president
would veto it About a year ago a rule
waa adopted in tbe departments that no
employe of tbe government was to be
Daid in advancs. This aotioo was taken,
it was generally auppoeed, at tbe instiga
tion of the president. Tbe favor having
been refused tbe department clerks, it
is Hot likely that tbe president wou d
extend it to tbe cspitol employes, lhoee

aHeeaiao court has given a decision

In tbe matter of a presiding officer for
the council at the coming session of tbe
territorial legislature, tbe names uf sev
eral members-elect have been mention
ed. Doubtless there are a number of
gentlemen who could fill tbe position
creditably, but it ia a matter beyond dis
pute tbat Fred G. Hughes, of Pima ocun
ty, ia certainly possessed of tbosequahG
eationa which render him by far the
ablest candidate in the field. His wide
experience in legislative bodies, durirg
which time he has developed into one of
the very best srliamsntsrians in the
territory, ia a recommendation which
will cot be overlooked when tbe council
reaobea tbe eoaeideration of the ques
tion as to who shall preside over its deli
berations. His ability has been recog
nized on previous oooatioo?, and in every
ioetance he haB proven true to the trust
reposed in bim.

The Los Angeles Herald, spanking
of tbe recent irrigation congress at
Phoenix, says:
The National Irrigation Congress pro

quite extensive dissemination by tne
Associated PresB and other agencies,
but two resolutions of importance, which
were pasted just before tbe adjourn
ment of tbe fifth annual convention,
were not reported to tbe oouotry at

marize the matured views and demands

ppeoded. After adopting a reulutioo
strongly advocating the creation 01 a

Times have changed. Old customs
have passed away and in their places
have sprung up new manners and new
feasts. Tbe days of yule logs, and
boars beads, and mietle-toe, have for tbe
most part; become memories of a psst
sge, and in tbeir stead, conforming to
an advanced civilization and a complete
chacge of eccial justoos, we have at
Cbnstmss time an entirely different
program different in eons, things, but
felweya tbe same to the little ones. If
the discarded mistletoe is absent, in its
phce are holly and cedar. The lesson
of the day is forever tbe same. It is em-
bU matte of peaoe, good will, universsl
love, and care for tbe happiness of oth
ers, principally tbe little ones.
The patron saint of the children attbia
tins is hoary Old Santa Claus, always

crooked with tbe burden of the gifts he
carries for good iiitle boys and girls.
Already tbey bear tbe jingle of bis
sleigbbt-lis snd the clattering hoofs of
his sprightly reindeer in tbe distance,
and tonight many bright little eyes will
do battle with tbeKodof slumber in a
vain effort to remain open long enough
to catch a ely glimpse of the wonderful
old man who brings joy to so many
hearts. But as tbe soft la&hes creep
uuwilliBgly together and shut out the
realities of earth, sweet dreams oome to
tbe innocent hearts, snd all tbe joys of
a lifetime pssain lovely panorama before
tbeir sleeping vision. How eargerly
tbey jump from tbeir beds before tbe
light of day has fairly dawnedl What
shrieks of joy make tbe household a per-
fact pandemonium! Truly it is a dsy
of "peace on earth end good will towsrds
men," and tbe duty of every parent is
plain. Make it a rule to give tbe chil
dren some reminder of tbe day, no mat
ter how slight it may be. It will teach
them early in li?e, a lesson which is
too often forgotten in this world
"it ia better to give tbsn to
receive." To tbem now, it win sppeBr
reversed; but as age creeps on, and tbe
time comes when tbeir children are
exgerly awaiting the advent of Santa
Citius, tbe memories of tbeir childhood
days will come to tbem in vivid recolleo-
tioo, and tbey, in turn, will teaob tbs
lesson of everlasting love which links
time to eternity, and makes earjh nearer
To all, the old aud young, the rich and
poor, tbe Uitizen extends a sincere
greeting, and wishes a Merry Christmas,
with all th joys tbe dsy can bring.
Senator Alijew is struggling hard for
notoriety. Lett week be got a little bit
by moving that tbe senate take up a
bill to which be himself is opposed, and
this week he made a bid for more by
offering a reeolution for tbe appoint
ment cf a committee of senators to in
eetigate the expenditure of money in
tbe recent pretidential campaign. He
claims to bace this resolution on no
baier foundation than tbat tbe vote of
a number of states carried by McKicley
was largely in exoess of wbat was cast
in 1892, when evtry well-informed man
knows tbat Cleveland was elected by
the Ftay-at-bome republican votes, atd
and not because a majority of the votera
of a number of states he carried wers
for him. This year tbe stsy-st home
vote of "92 was cast solidly for Mckinley
and for tbat reason tbta very wise popu
liet wants to inveatigate the expendi
tures. It is customary for tbs author
of s eenate reeolution creating a epecial
committee to be made chairman uf the
committee, and in tbat custom lies Mr.
Allen's real reason for offering this reso
lution. If he could gst himself t the
head of such smelling committee be
oould keep himself continually in tbe
newspapers, even if he found out noth
ing. Men who become public nuisances
in their efforts for notoriety are really to
be pitied.
For the beo-tit of this wbo think
tbat the meaning of tbe Eo-called short
crop of wheat in the United States bat
been folly discounted by tbe advance in
piice6,itis in order toexplainthstitisthe
unexpected which generally happens. Var
ious estimates of tbe American wheat re
serves this yf ar place tbem far below
quantities held nt like periods for many
years some say 65.000,000 bushels lees
than laat year. One t f tbe beet indica
tions of this is.found in very small re
ceipts st primary markets, notwith-
standing comparatively high prices. In
commenting on tbiseituaticn, Beerbohm
writ.ee, December 4, tbat'it is therefore
quite reasonable to expect that America
may, at a given time, find itself absolu
tely independent and in a position to
demand, practically, its own price for
its wheat." It sbould also be remem
bered tbat the present season differs
from previous ones in tbat both India
and Australia are importers, ioetead of
exporters, of wheat.
Tha Development of a Great Mining
There is probably no section of the
southwest which is attracting more at
tention at present than tbe Globe min
ing district. Besides a number of old,
well-established, widely known mines,
which have produced millions for tbeir
owners, numerous prospects tare of late
received attention, and several new mills
and much mining machinery has been
plsced in active position for work.
In the last issue of tbe Globe Silver
Belt, there ia a very interesting and ex
haustive description 01 one 01 tne ieaa-
ing oopper producers of this wonderful
camp, tbe Uoited Globe, and extracts
from tbe account are reproaucea, wun
tbe assurance tbat many will esjoy
learning of the workings of one of tbe
greatest oopper mines in Arizona.
The United Globe mines was organiz
ed as a company for tbe mining aud
melting o( copper in 1892.
Tbe officers of the company are, Prof.
James Douglas, president; Jo6epb van
Vleck. vice president; George otmae,
secretary; all of whom bold uke positions
in tbe Copper Queen company, of Bi
bee. However, tbe two companies are
not in an) other respect identified, the
persontel of the respective boards of
directors being differeot. Tbe United
Globe mines U a clo-e corporation, th
stock being in a few hands end not pur-
basable. wbile tbe stock of the Uopper
Queen is diversely held, ultbough, owing
to tbe large dividends pain, it is never;
offered for sale in tbe 6tock market.
Tbe property of tbe company com
prises some 30 mining claims on tbe
Globe copger belt, 1 orth of tbe town of
Gobe, a smelting plant snd other sur
face works, and a saw mill 00 Pinal
mouotaio. None cf the claims, except
tbe Buffalo and the Hjoeier, perhaps
were aoytning mors man iavoraDie
prospeote when purcbaeed by tbe com
pany, and the smelter was a crude affa r
of one small watr jacket furnace.
Io August, 189j, tbe work of remodel
ing and enlarging the plant began and
has progressed steadily since. Io thi
work of improvement tbe superintendent
has had mfoy obstacles to contend
egainst, chief of which was tbe difficulty
of getting tbe necessary lumber, nd
tbe slow transportation of macbicery
and other supplies. Happily these an-
ooyanoes are now about at an end, and
the visitor to the United Globe will see
one of tbe most complete substan
tial pl3nts fr the baodling and emelting
of copper ores in Arizona.
The smelter has been practically re
built, and Ibbemelter building and tram
way terminal cover an area of 189 fet
square, me Duiumgs are spactouB,
thorough ia construction, and planned
for convenience and facility in handling
the ores, ooke, copp 7, etc. The princi
pal furnace is a 126x38 inch, eliptical
water jacket, of tbe JJouglAS patent built
by Tbe Samuel L. More & Sons, Co., of
Elizabeth, N. J. Tb new feature (tbe
invention of Prof. Jas. Douglas) is the
leader of tbe blast through tbe water
compartment before eoterigg tbe fur
nace, causing tbe heating of tbe blast
with a corresponding cooling of tbe wa
ter and a more even temperature around
the oruoible. Tbe theoretical capacity
of th- new furnace is 12o tons per dsy,
buttbeaotual capacity, smelting tbe
oxide ores of the district, will likely he
from 150 to 175 tons. A 36 inch jacket.
of the ordinary pattern, will also be em
The most important addition to the
plant is tbe tramway, of tbe improved
Bleicbert pattern, built by tbe Trenton
Iron Works, Trenton, N. J. Tbe line
runs from tbe Buffalo ore bins to tbe
smelter, a distance of SOOO feet. Ore
from tbe Booster shaft will be bauled
1500 feet in cars drnwn by mules, to the
Buffalo ore bins snd there transferred to
the cable tramway.
At the mines th? principal develop
ment work is directed towards tbe open
ings of tbe Hoosier caim and adjacent
territory between it and tbe Dime in
Copper Canon. For this purpose there
has lately bean erected a small boistitg
plant on tbe Hoosier 6haft, together
with tbe mam blaoKsmttb and crpcter
shops, a 6tore bout-e and office fur tbe
mine foreman. Underground work bas
just been initiated to crosscut frcm tbe
mats footwall into tne limeet -oe, wnere
it is supposed tbat tbe main ore bodies
will be encountered.
The work in otber portione of tbe
Hoosier territory, for several months
past, has consiet-d of making thorough
fares and openit gs for necessary ventila
tion, and general v to connect tbe princi
pal claims of the Hoosier group with tbe
main outlet at tbe lio eter sbart.
Little or no wot k has been done for
several months in tbe Buffalo mine.
The old rond to tbe Big Johnnie claim
has been repaired and a new portion
constructed leading tc the liuffalo ore
bios, and over which it is proposed to
utilize the traction engine which some
vears since did duty for the Copper
Queen Company, in hauling ore from
tne White Tail Deer mine to Bisbee.
The Big Johnnie. Birdsneetand Buck
eys olainie will furnish some ore to tbe
smelting works snd tneir Lroaucis win
be hauled bv tbe engine.
The outlaying claims sre connecfed by
telephone with the mine foreman's office
and the smelter.
A dynamo will shortly be added to tbe
emelting plant for ita lighting and the
1 company's buildings nstr tns wows.
Nowadays when women sre trying to
do everything it is not strange tbat
many tbings are overdone. It is not
etrange that there are all kiods of
physical and meotttl disturbances. If
tbe woman wbo is a doctor, or lawyer,
or a journalist, or in business would not
try to be a society woman too it cvght
be different; but the woman wbo knows
wbeo she bas done a daj' woik has yet
to be born. Usually a woman's ay is
to kt-epVloiog until ehe drops. Working
in this way bas manifold evils. Tbe
most oommon trouble resulting from
overexertion, either mentally or physic
ally, is constipation of tbe bowels, with
all its attendant horrors.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are the
most effectual remedy in tbe market.
Tbey work upon tbe system easily,
naturally. There is no unpleasant
nausea after taking them. No griping
no pain no discomfort. Tbey are com
posed of materials that go through tbe
system gradually, collecting all impuri
ties and, like tbe good little servants
th t tbey are, disposing of them effec
tually. Another Rlh Mine.
While doing this yesrs'a assessment
work on the Cardnoff group of mines, in
the Ajo d stri t, for noe favored tbe
owners by revealing a splendid body of
rich ore. A sample gave returns ss fol
lows: gold 15 ounces, silver, 9 ou noes,
and copper 49 per cent. There is
every indioation tbat the property ie one
of the very riobest and most extensive
in the district, and ita owners, Tbomss
C ilds, of Gila Bend, and Washington
M Jacobs, of Tucson, are justly jubilant
over tbe prospects.
This district takes ita name from tbe
old Ajo mine, which was worked by
Hon. P. R. Brady and Cbas. D. Poeton,
years ago, when they first came to this

There are just two requisites cecee
eary to obtain successful results in ag
riculture and horticulture in Arizona.
Those are water and work. Messrs
Crn6 and Fraker have made tbe combi
nation in just tbe proportion which in
jures the most satisfactory returns, and
tbe:r ranch 00 Cienega creek, near Vail's
station is the outgrowth. Sometime ago
tbey took up a piece of government land
there, and have eiuce been adding to it
until now they have about 300 acres. A
tine bouse snd the necessary outbuild
ings are in prooees of construction.
Water for irrigation purposes is se
cured from Cienegs creek snd reaches
the land through a private ditch two
miles loDg. There is so abundance for
all the lend they have and more too.
Th owners of the ranch propose to
put in 109 aoree of barley tbis year 10
addition to their large fields of alfslfa.
Ttey also have quite a large young
orchard, consisting of peaoi( spticot and
tig trees, which bear proliucally and
never fail. Tbe fig cuttings came into
bearing two yere after being planted
and have never been discovered neglect
ing business since. Tbe peach and ap
ricot trees' grow magoidoently and tbis
year bore from 100 to 150 pounds of
fruit each.
Tbe persistent labor of Messrs Crane
and Fraker bas been rewarded by a
growth of farm produots and fruit trees
which is most gratifying and eervee as
an example of wbat anyone can accom
plish bv the exercise of tbe same efforts
tbey bsve made.
Results In tha Death f Robert Lee
Tbe uncertainty of life has bad another
sorrowful illustration in the sudden tak
ing off of young "Bob" Lee, well and fa
orably known to a wide cirole of friends
in southern Arizona. Saturday after
noon, tbe very last day of a two month.)
round np, in tbe neighborhood of Table
Mountain, in Pinal county, "Bob" waa
at worst with his orew, holding a large
bunoh of cattle which bad been driven
together. One of the unruly beasts broae
out of the herd, and started down tbe
side of a very ' steep bill. Young Lee
followed and threw bis riata over tbe
animal. Hie horse was very tired, owing
to tbe hard work wbicb it had done, and
refused to answer tbe rein. Instead of
following tbe cow down bill, tbe horse
turned his bead away and wss thrown
over upon bis side. So euddenly wa
tbis done tbat tbe rider did not nave tbe
slightest chance to free himself from tbe
saddle, and in consequence as crushed
beneath tbe horse. His neck snd oack
bone were broken. His comrades came
to hie resoue, found bim unconscious.
and knew tbat tbe end waa near. He
was plsced upon a horse and carried to
tbe nearest ranch, seven miles sway
where he ley slive, but wholly uncon
scious, for twelve hours, when he breath
ed hie last.
His body was brought to the city and
was buried this morning at ten o'clock.
The deceaeed was just a boy, being 18
years and five days old. He was a bro

in it. When it is remembered that we
are a pioneer people, and ad uch some
what prone to tempoiarily lose sigHt of
our duty to God; that we, like all people
in a new community, are poor; and tbat
we, wbo bavt so long been accustomed
to the notion tbat anything id good
enougn and to 00, are hard to move in
any reform, you will readily believe me
wben I tell you tbat tbe star of my hope
for many years bas seemed to me a long
way cff. But la looking back over each
year 1 found tbat some progress bad
been made; and thus encouraged I kept
eteadny 00. Fioally the glad timecsme
tbe experiment was to be made of begin
ning the work. Hnca then tbe gen
erosity of the people cf Tucson bas been
untiring. Nearly all of you visited tbe
late Fair held in tbe Cathedral, and you
eaw for yourselves bow our people, re
gardless of creed, came forward 'en
masse' and gave to tbe full of generos
ity. It is tbis generosity that I wieh to
emphasize io this card. It bas built
t e Catnedral; it bas made it tbe finest
church edifice in this part of the west,
and it will complete it.
In teilitg th people of Tucson that I
appreciate their lioerahty and am grate
ful for it, 1 only faintly voice the senti
ments of my hean : that my ardent
withes are for tbeir good and tbat the
Cathedral may stand for the years to
oome aa a monument to the generous
people that erected it.
Now for a few lines bearing still more
directly on tbe persons connected with
the. work of the Fair. The persons, in
fucsoo. wbo tiok a mare or Jea active
part in tbe cod aud great work were
legion, and in the Bpace allowed to me
by lb kind Editor of tbis paper I could
cot think of ca i.iog tbem all. Tney are
well known though in Tucson, and their
memory together with that of tbeir
noble deed, will be carefully and loving
y nes teld in by ail those of my religious
Creed. And yet no one wbo eaw tbe
gentle souls at work during the Fair
would forgive me for not singling out
the lady managore, tbeir ' untiring
efforts and labor, tbeir indomitable
energy and wonderful executive ability.
The ladies, venders at tbe booths and
caterers at tbe dining tables, were simply
admirable. Tbe to dsysf previous to
the opening of tbe Fair they were busi ly
engaged in erecting and decorating with
ibeir own bands tbeir booths, amidst a
most deafening noise made by tbe pull
ing down of soaffoldiog and laying of
the, floor in a continuous cloud of dust
and cold, biting draughts. For five
nights in succession, inside tbeir cozy
and mobt artistically arranged depart
ments, with gracefulness perfect and
unsbbkeo constancy, tbey catered to tbe
wants and wishes of tneir numerous
customers. What shall 1 say of tbat
pretty swarm of youLg ladies, busy with
tbeir books for tbe different rsfflas? A
glance over the itemized account of tbe
Fair will reveal tbe stupendous amount
of fruitful labor accomplished by tbis
dtring phalanx of 'dimes gatherers'. My
sincere thanks to those enchanting
Graces of tbe University of Arizona wbo
held tbo immense crowd breathless with
their beautiful Tableau! ; to tbe four
little scgel-lik forms wbo so exquisitely
acted their part in tbe second night of
tbe Tab eaux; to the talent of tbe Tuc
son quartette wbo rendered some of tbe
choicest selections in its repertoire, and
th- chorus of Spanish young ladies who
afforded us such a delightful evening on
tbe third nit bt of tbe Fiir; to our noble
minded Pbilarmcnics; to Montijo's or

Citizks" and tbe "Pronterizj ' for tbe
freedom rf tbeir columns for our adver
tising and other representatives of tbe
Press in and out of tbe Territory and
a host of friends and well wishers.
To crown it all let me tell yoo that

were non-Calbolics, whose efforts, to
say the leaT, were not Burpakseu vj

The fair was unquestionably a suc
cess and a surprise to all. Wbat was it
that made it eucb? First, tbe generos-
tv of tbe people of Tucson wbo visited
it io great numbers and lanshly spent
heir money; next, aa I have just stated,
tbe admirable orguniz-ition and work
ings of that assemblage of about a
hundred ladies of every age and station

Some Good Claims Near Mammoth.
Harry S. Turner is in the city from hia
mints near Mammoth. Three miles
northwest of that point he has been
busily at work for sometime on the Tip
Top group of gold claims. This year
he has done $2500 worth of work on the
group. He bas opened np 170 feet of
tunnels and shafts, timbered, put np
ladders, sunk a well in which ha has
six feet of water, and built a very com
fortable stone house.
Tne Tip Top claim has two feet of psy
ore iu the bottom of tbe shaft.
He also has the Golden Eagle group,
which consists of three claims. Shafts
on the claims have been suck to depths
varying frcm 30 to fifty feet, and a cross
cut in one of tbem has uncovered six
to eight feet of ore which gives average
returns of $9 per ton.
The mines sre located in a district well
known for its productiveness, and will
doubtlees yield tbeir owner a handsome
return in the not distant future.
Interesting Discovery Made by Pros
pectors in Yavapai County.
At Mountain Springs, seven miles
from Hillside and fifty miles west of
Prescott, according to the Prescott
Courier, Messrs. Marcemy and Waters
have being doing some development
work on a gold claim. A short time
ago, while going over the surface of
this claim tbey discovered an aban
doned shaft. They placed a windlass
and rope' in position and descended
tbe shaft a depth of forty feet; from
tbe bottom of tbis shaft extended a
tunnel, partly caved in, but sufficiently
preserved to enable them to follow it
in for 100 feet. Tbe ore body exposed
in this tunnel is said to be fifty feet
wide, the ore a red oxide of iron, car
rying in places, gold visible to the
naked eye. - The old tunnel had caved
at a point 100 feet from its mouth. The
explorers retraced tbeir steps to the bot
tom of the shaft, from which they found
another tunnel running in another direc
tion. This tunnel tbey penetrated fifty
feet until their progrese was stopped by
a cave of the rocks and dirt. This tunnel
contained the same showing of ore that
the long one did. They then descended
tbe hill and 400 feet below found the
mouth of an old tunnel, stored in. which
were found rusted cooking utensils, picks
with bandies rotted out, and other min
ing tools. No man now living in this
section has any knowledge of these work
ings or who carried them on. They cer
tainly date back over thirty yeais. A
party of mining men has gone out to
examine the property and its ancient
workings. There ia an abundance of
wood and water close at hand.
Arizona Natural Bridge.
Abstract of a composition by Harry G. Logan,
of the Freshman class, in the Un.versity of
The Natural Bridge of Arizona is one
of the wonders of the world, snd far ex
ceeds tbe natural bridge of Virginia in
extent and grandeur. It spans Pine
Creek, one of tbe tributaries of tbe
upper Salt River in Gila county, about
four miles from the town of Pin.
Pine Creek here flows in a canyon
with steep Eides. Arriving at the brink
of this canyon we see before and below
us a nearly level flat of land some five
or six acres in extent reaching across
tbe canyon to the opposite side, where
there is an abrupt wail of rocks, the face
of a mountai 1, perhaps fifteen hundred
feet high. Standing on this level trsct
of land on which there are buildings,
an alfalfa field, and an orchard, it is
bard to believe that we are on the top
of a natural bridge across a chasm and
that tbe stream flows below us. But
looking to tbe right snd to the left, as
we face the precipitous bluff, we see the
open canyon perhaps 300 or 4C0 feet
wide and two.hundfed and fifty feet
deep. The height of tbe bridge lessens
as we approach the opposite tide and at
one place there is a hole in the apparent
ly solid rock through which one can
look down for 12G feet to the bottom of
the canyon.
Desiring to get under this wonderful
bridge we take a trail to tbe left and
note that the rocks lie in great benches
or strata with cave-like openings ex
tending backwards into the buttresses of
tbe bridge. Entering one of these open
ings and crawling sometimes upon our
hands and knees we find a cave, or
vaulted chamber, with beautiful iracslus
cent stalactites pendant from the ceiling
and reaching nearly to the floor. These
etatactites are resonant when Btruck,
giving off musical notes. This cave is
tbe abode of numerous bats and tbey
made it uncomfortable for us to remain
so we descended to the bottom of the
canyon where there Is a pool of water
twenty to thirty feet across, and said to
b over fifty feet deep.
Tne opposite buttress or wall of the
bridge is nearly perpendicular.
Other caves along the canyon give evi
dence of tbe flow of weter carrying lime
in solution, for twigs, grass snd otber
substances lying in tbe water are now
covered with a cmet or deposit of lime.
Tbe rocks of the canyon appear to be
tbiefly limestone.
Theorizing upon the origin of tbe
bridge we may suppose that the open
ings of calcerous water have gradually
deposited lime in greater quantity above
than below and have in the lapse of time
buili out. or cemented together, the
rocks and debris of the canyon until a
firm cemented mass was formed under
which the water cut its way.

attack on the Custom Houbo at Nogales,
Sonora, by the fanatical Taquishav
been growing stronger, csueed by th
statement a few days sgo by an old
Indian woman that another attack waa
contemplated by the) Indians and that
the blow would fall soma tims during'
Christmas week. Previous to the attack
of the 12th of August, tbis old woman
warned the authorities on the Mexican
side of what was. contemplated, but
they did not place. any credence in her
story. Now she gives them warning,
again and a close observation of th
movements of tbe Indians seems to
corroborate her story. It has baen
noticed that several of the Tsquis who
have been at work around at different
places, have' left their work. It waa
feared that if any considerable number
of them came, that there would be great
danger to tbex lives of citizens and to
property on the American side. Accord
ingly communications were forwarded
to the Commanding Officer at Fort
Huachuca with tha result that on Sun
day morning Captain Davis in command
of Ca H, of the 15th regiment arrived
in Nog ales with his company to b on
tbe ground for the purptse of protsoV

the contemplated attack materialized.
The boys have been camped on tha
flat just below town, and are constantly
on the alert in case any trouble arise.
So far, however, there bas been none,
and it is thought that the scare is shout
over for the present at least. Captain
Davis and LL Kirsch with their com
pacy expect to return to th Fort thia
evening. Vidette.

Claims to baa Benefactor ta "Weaka-

There is always'mors or lessiuspicion

but sometimes a man so overflow with
generosity that be cannot rest until hia
discovery is known to ths world, in
order that his fellow men may profit by
what he has discovered. It is upon thia
principle that resident of Kalamazoo, -Mictu,
desires to send free to mankind
a prescription which will our them of
any form of nervous debility; relieve
tbem of all the doubt and uncertainty
whicfccpuch men are peculiarly liable to
and restores the organs to natural uo
and vuor. As it costs nothing to try
the experiment it would seem that any
man, suffering with tbe nervous trouble
that usuelly attack men who never stop
ped to realize what might be th final
result, ought to be deeply interested in
a remedy which will restore them to
health, strength and vigor, without
which they continue to live an existence
of untold misery. As th remedy in
question wss the result of many year
research aa to what combination wbould
be peculiarly effective in restoring to
men the strength tbey need, it would
seem that all men suffering with any
form of nervous weakness onght to
