THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 18, 1894.
LA INDEPENDENCE A Quiet Observance of the Mexican Anniversary. The Ceremonials Close With an Elaborate Ball and Sumptuous Banquet Last NlRht. The celebration of Mexican Inde pendence closed last night with a grand ball given at Gardiner'B hall un der the auspices of La Junta Fatriotica of Phoenix. Attendance was secured only by special invitation, which waB extended only to prominent Mexican residents and American friends and their families. It was, therelore, a somewhat exclusive, bat an- elaborate and well managed affair. The program of music and dancing wa9 an . excellent one. The tickets of invitation admit ted bearers to the dancing hall free and to a sumptuous banquet at midnight. Covers were laid for 200 guests. The celebration this year was a more than ordinarily quiet one. It was opened by a performance at the opera house on Saturday night, followed by the booming of anvils on the threshold of the anniversary of the day which fol lowed the successful night revolt eighty-four years ago. On Sunday, the real anniversary, there was no concerted observance, but family parties and picnics were formed and there was a desultory firing of guns. The usual fetes and gameB, however, formed no part of the observ ance. THE CAMP MEETING CLOSES. One Hundred and Thirty Persons Were Converted. The camp meeting at Norton's Grove was closed on Sunday night after a pro longed peried of religious awakening. The morning sermon was preached by Rev. W. E. Vaughan. At the afternoon service eleven persons were baptised and received into the church and at the evening service there were twelve more conversions. - There were altogether during the meetings 130 persons con verted. Of these forty were received into the M. . church sonth, under whose auspices the meeting was held. The others have been divided among the various Protestant denominations in the valley. Services which have been discontinued at the Center street church during the meetings at the Grove will be resumed next Sunday: Rev. Mr. Vaughan will preach at the usual hours in the morning and even ing. AN OPPORTUNITY TO KICK. One Week in Which to Criticise City Assessments.

For when the new milk sought its 'customed place, That curd became headquarters for a race Of big bacteria that swarmed and grew Until the milk was soured and "turned" all through.

And if you ship it, ship it in the shade, And thus preserve its sweetness and its grade. And scour your cans and sun and scald and boil, And thus the sour bacteria you'll foil. Rural New Yorker.

Its Remarkable Effect Upon a Lot Of Hardy Gold Diggers. Fifty English Miners Tramp Eight Miles to Hear a I. ark Sing Kongh Man in a Bengh Country Hungry for m Word from Home. No one should think that he knows all that it is to be homesick until he has turned his back not only on home, but also on native land, says a writer in the Indianapolis Kews. Here are a few incidents that fell under my own observation during' a sojourn in Aus tralia. We were gold digging on the banks of the river Lodden, and had been hard at work for many months. In those early days nearly all the men on that particular "diggings" as, in deed, on all the gold fields, were Brit ish subjects, either from the "old coun try" itself or from some of the North American colonies. One day a rumor was circulated through our camp that an immigrant, lately from England and located some distance farther down the stream, had brought with him an English lark. The news spread far and wide, from river to hill and from hill to gulch, and when the next Sunday forty io fifty of us went to see the precious songster we found fully five hundred rough-bearded, tender-hearted men congregated about the lucky ower's tent, listening, enrap tured, to the old familiar trill of the bird's sweet carol. Many of these hardy diggers, great, strong fellows, whom no danger could appall, had tramped 'twenty miles simply to see and hear a common lark, solely be cause it came from their own "island home," and it was nothing less than pathetic to observe how deeply each one was affected by the liquid, musical notes, calling vividly to mind never-to-be-forgotten joys. I have reason to know, however, that this sentimental indulgence cost not a few of the sturdy Britons many an hour of lost time in the following week. This little inci dent has been told with some varia tions from this, but I was there as an eye-witness, and the facts are as here stated. I may add that I saw the own er of the bird refuse more than one offer of fifty dollars for his prize. One day it was in 1853, I think a number of us set off across the ranges on a visit to the post office at Castle maine, about eight miles from our own diggings, in the always present hope of receiving home letters. Oh, those monthly trips! Shall I ever forget them? Each step of the thither jour ney made light and buoyant by fond anticipation, each foot of the return seeming, only too often, a furlong in length, dragged out in the weariness of disappointed hopes! We were a party of twenty, all stout young fel lows under thirty years of age, and, as we went over the quartz-strewn hUls and through the shadow valleys, all clothed with a gorgeous profusion of strange shrubs and flowers, and saw mvraid birds of brilliant plumage, from the tiny parroquet to the great crested cockatoo, flitting about from tree to tree, while overhead shown the dazzling rays of an Australian sun, our spirits rose to the point of ecstasy, and each one of us felt sure that this time he would certainly receive the long-expected missive. Cheerfully, then, we trudged along and at last came to the brow of the heights overlooking the commission er's headquarters, and there on a level space in front of the tents, about one third of a mile from us, were drawn up, in their scarlet uniforms and with flashing arms, some two hundred men of the British Fortieth regiment of the line! Up to this moment none of us were aware that a single English soldier was in the colony, and the effect of this un suspected sight was simply astounding. Almost so suddenly as if we had run against a stone wall, our little crowd came to a dead halt, and while for a time not a word was spoken each man sought to read in his comrades' eyes an amusing thought to his own overpow ering emotion.. As we stood in a kind of dazed be wilderment the splendid regimental band struck up, and, most strangely, the musicians selected as the first piece "Home, Sweet Home!" Then, indeed, "the fountains of the great deep" were broken up and we, roughly clad, clay begrimed miners threw ourselves upon the ground, totally overcome by the rush of tender memories awakened by the familiar old air, while boyish tears, of which all forgot to be ashamed, trickled down each sunburnt cheek. For nearly an hour, until the band had gone through its whole repertory, we lay there hushed and silent, but oh ! with such unutterable thoughts of far away homes and loved ones, never, perhaps, to be again seen. By and by we rose and wandered slowly down the slope toward the large canvas tent which then served as a post office. While we were taking our places in the rear of the long line of anxious diggers waiting their turn at the wicket, a young fellow of our company wistfully said: "Oh, boys, how shall we live through it if we don't hear from home?" and the question found echo in each expectant heart. But, alas! only three men of our twenty received let ters that day, and the homesick youth was not one of them. As we sadly walked back to camp our party more nearly resembled a fu neral procession thsn a squad of usu;:l- Uriclt. B RICK CHEAPI WM. REILLY&BRO., At Wm. Cox's Old Yard South of Depot, rnoanix.

Statistics show that all occupa tions that expose the persoT to dust predispose to tuberculosis, and that persons who follow sedentary occcupa- tions are likewise predisposed to the disease. Those who live out doors are almost entirely free from it. Conta gion, especially due to floating germs, seems to explain these facts suffi ciently. Mme.

Currying the Cow Every Day. Some people seem to think that they do quite enough for their cows if they give them food and shelter; but be sides they require to be kept very cleanly, though seldom indulged in that luxury. The cow should be cur ried daily, like the horse; its hide should be freed from all impurities and relieved from everything that causes uneasiness. When you see a cow rubbing itself against a post you may depend on it that the animal is ill kept and requires a good scrub bing. Irritation of the skin from im purities also causes them to lick them selves, a habit which is injurious, for the hairs taken into the stomach form a compact, round mass, which may de stroy the animal. If well curried any danger from this catastrophe is avoided, the health is generally improved, and this improves the quality of the milk, besides increasing the quantity. Farmer Voice.
