FRIENDSHIP.
Better far than cold or jewels,
Iu the right of grief and pain,
Is the thauzkt through joy or sorrow.
Oue friend will still remain.
Many friends may gather 'round us
In the days uf wealth and power;
But i'as. how few the number
Iii udrersiLj's dink kour.
And if ever o'er our pathway
Shine prosjientys bright sun,
Sweetly comes to us the kuow'edge,
We some noble heart have won.
Yet Unit loved one may forsake uj
For another ln!d more dear.
Leaving only ud, sweet memories
All our life lu cheer.
And the wealth that once wi.s ours
Yanisb'd with the suintuei's Oleum;
Wh le the jeais pass so swiMy,
Biiiijf life's autumn fraught with gloom
When lore's iiakMioiiatt dreams are o'er,
And our outh fo ever fled.
With ihe hopes that made us gladsome,
Like spring violets crushed and dead.
Through the clouds that daikly lower,
16 this weaiy notld we roam,
F.tithul friunsuip, like Hie Iris,
Tells of brighter days to come.

Besides all these, another rail
road has just been surveyed, the
Arizona Southern, from Tucson,
Arizona, to some point on the lo
cated line of Sonora Railway,
probably at or near Ures, or per
haps as far south as Hermosillo
the Capiial of Sonora. This road
takes in some of the best mining
districts of Arizona, and will have
tributary to it Ihe rich mines and
exleiiKve stock regions of North-
