It is better to buy before stock gets too well appreciated, and reap tlio bonofit of the increase Thoso who hang baok snd wait and listen to every attempt to decry a good prop erty, are just the ones to buv into the wrong stock at tho wrontr time.

As wo have stated before, an ounce of foresight is worth a pound of hindsight, there could be no greater truoism in its application to good mining stocks. N. Y. Daily Stock Report. "We most heartily concur in tho sentiments of the Stock Report as above expressed. We know of sev eral mines here in Tombst no where tho stocks to-day are a b'g buy at the present markot price, and yet people fight shy of them. Tho timo will come, and probably soon, when there will bo a boom on these same stocks, and then thoso who now ignore them will be eager purchasers at fire times what they are quoted at at this time. It is so in almost orery mining camp of noto in the United States. Tho time to buy is when stocks are low and before the mines have become exhausted in dividends. This state ment his been.so often made by re sponsible mining journals that it has lest all the charm of newness, but it has lost none of the force of truth fulness on that account. It should bo indelibly impressed upon tho mind oi every man ana woman who aro desirous (of investing In 'mining stocks, and then (hero would be less causo for regret at the outcome. Lai:ge portions of Colorado are now under snow, and minincr will soon bo suspended until next sum mer. That is ono of the disadvaii tages under which southern Arizona does not labor. Hero mining opera tions can bo carried on during the whole year, and now is the busiest season. Then Arizona ha3 other ad vantages which capitalists sliou'd not overlook. Arizona's ono railroad, the Southern Pacil'c, has done more to make the country accessible than the same length of road could do in any other mining region in the United States. Arizona's mountains are peculiar. They aro not a sdries of almost unbrokon ranges, rising higher and higher, but isolated peaks and short ranges surrounded by vast plains, which furnish tho finest nat ural roads to be found anywhere in tho world. This makes our mines accessible. Immense sums do not have to be expended to get to the valuablo deposits which lie hidden in almost erery mountain. .Nature has provided highways and a climate which permits the miner to pursue his avocation uninterruptedly. Cit izen. IMOUS Dog. ' From the Phcnlx Herald. Liut evening a dog became master of the situation in tlio M. E. church. The cou. gregalion had just began singing tlio first hymn when 1ns dogship rushed up to tlio front seut in u very pluyf-il manner and jumped upon it, in the midst of some l the ladies. The effect was magical. The second line of the choitts was abruptly broken oft', right in the middle, and the singers were soon convulsed with, laughter. The dog was led out of the church and the singing again started up. Some parties at tbat moment coming Into church opened the way for the dog, and he again joined the fingers on the tront seat, and the sing ing stopped just where it did before The minister seemingly lost control of his risi bilities and joined in tlio laugh. The lady owning the canine tlnally succeeded in Retting ritPof him and services proceeded. It would be an excellent ide.i if people would leave their dogs at home, as they arc an intolerable nuisance In cluucli. Wo counted the in this same church last Sunday eveniug.

Witness said the prisoner general ly took part in discussions upon what ever subject might bo under dis cussion, and was always critical and accusative rather than conciliatory and k'nd. Tho second witness was Henry G. Collier, an attorney of Now York. On his taking the stand, Guiteau shouted, " I remember you; you aro the man that put up tho health job on me." " Keep quiet," said Sqoville. Guiteau I will disposo of this man in short order, lie brought suit against mo to pay. over certain money, and tho co rt ruled I should keep it. That kills his evidence.

At present the train from this city arrives in Sili Francisco at 11:33.

Pacheco, who came up from Mexico last week, informs us that when ho loft Janos there were about 450 Aptcho Indians, including he bands of Nana, .In and Chino. encamped at that place. These In dians, says Pacheco, seemed to be enjoying themselves. Their camp was the focus of hilarity and mirth; war dances a"d debauchery were freely indulged in. They have sev eral hundred head of stock, horses, mules and horned cattle, brought with them from Arizona and Now Mexico. These they live upon, and buy corn from the people, make tiz win, and take life easy. The Indi ans appeared to be on the best of terms with the people at Junes and the Surrounding country, and with tho exception of an occasional petty theft, they were g.ving no trouole. It was rumored that the Mexican au thorities were preparing to take ad vantage of the unsuspecting savages, and lure them into a trap and mas sacre or take the whole outfit pris oners, but Pacheco thinks there is no movement of the kind contem plated. The Indians have manifested a friendly disposition toward the Mex icans, and so long as they remain at peace, the authorities will avoid any trouble with them. Sr. Pacheco says these Indians have a wholesome dread of New Mexico and Arizona, and will not return unless to make a raid and again get back into Chi huahua. A Ilravc Woman. From the Citlzsn A Detroit dispatch gives the fol lowing account of the bravery of a single woman in contrast with a lot of men. United States Marshal Wilcox, of Denver, arrived at the House of Correction last night, hav ing in charge a life prisoner, Henry W. White, a desperado lately con victed ot robbingastage coach near Dei' Norte. 'ewMexTco. about five months ago, and sentenced to impri sonment in the Detroit House of Correction for life. About three miles east of Pokagon, Cass county, on tho Michigan Central railroad, the convict picked the lock of his hand cuffs with a toothpick and ferociously attacked the marshal. Ho first struck him on the head with his handcuffs, and when Wilcox grappled with him in a dazed way SVlnte struck him again aud brought him to his knees. There were seventeen men in the car who saw the whole affair, but they left tho officer to struggle with 'the desperate man In the fight Whie seized Marshal Wilcox's revolver and tried to shoot him, when Mrs. Smith- son, the wife of a Denver engineer, on her way to New York, and the only woman on tho car, sprang upon the sea; behind the strugg'ing men, seized the convict around the neck and disabled him to a sufficient ex tent to enable tho marshal to once more secure control of him. White says if he could have got a bullet through Wilcox he would have cov ered the passengers with the revolver in one hand while he untied his an kles with the other, and then "gone through" every one of those infernal cowards in the cars. The marshal says that Mrs. Smithson declined a rewaul, but he was going to send to her New Yoik address $500 before he is forty hours older. " Are you particular," asked a gen tleman the other day of -Mr. Moody, "as to what church your, conveits at tend after they have found peace through your ministrations?" " Not at all," answered the great revivalist, adding: "Excuse me a minute while 1 tote up these figures six times 842 is 5,052, and 3x5,052 makes 15.15U. Say, Sank," continued the great apos tle, calling to his mate like one dove to another, "What's our commission on $1,513, and six cents for hymn books since Monday?" "$U42 80," promptly responded the sweet singer of Israel. "Not so bad lor three nights, eh, Sank?" ' 1 should smile, Mood," retorted the Wandering Boy. And then recovering him' elf, Mr. Moody tinned to his visitor and re sumed: "No, wo are not at all par ticular. In San Francisco we con verted a Roman Catholic reporter, who gave up entirely indulgence in spirituous liquors at his own expense. In this caso there was great outpour ing of the Spirit. And, after we have done our woik, wo leave all these thousands of regenerate souls in the hands of their own pastors. Good morning." And, as the door closed, Mr. Moody called through the open door to his partner: " Say, Ira, cable for 10,000 mote books, and say we must have 40 per cent in future, or we'll change our base; and fix me up a yarn for the matinee, about a little girl who died in peace of the measles something 1 can cry over." And so the good work goes on. J.OCAI. Hl'Ll.VTKItN. Hon. John P. Ci.um left for Tucson lat evening, to pay his brother a visit, Mis. E. T.

It was reported yesterday that the fail ure of Shaffer & Lord has seriously in volved Major W. M. Downing, the Chiri cahua lumberman. It is to be hoped that this report is unfounded. NsTue Variety theater, of Billy Hutching Son, is appioaching completion. This will ben nice place for an hour's amusement to the men about town. Mr. Ilutchingson is now in San Francisco engaging his talent for the season. He expects to open with the holidays. Hf.oi8tkation closed last evening with 1,441 names on the register. Mr. Ludlow declaies himself not at all sorry at the event. Explaining the registry law after the first stven or eight bundled times be came more irksome, even, than to "teach the oung idea how to shoot." Serious complaints have been entered ag dnjt the ''wash" registrations made at the hotels in this city, to swell the list of arrivals. If any more complaints are made to the EriTAru we shall cease to re port them. Great mconvcnicnco has been caued several individuals within the last two or three days by seeing friend-' names among the arrivals, who at the time were hundicds of miles away. Mn. C. II. Piin.Lirs, ot San Luis Obispo, Cal., is a guest' at Brown's Hotel. This is his first viit to a great mining camp, and also his first to the territory. Willi Tomb stone he Is very much pleased. His ideal of the town was a filuge of houses in a rocky canyon, so little did he know of the lay of the land. His visit here will be of piactical benefit to the country in more vvajs than one from hi extensive acquain tance and connection with the capitalists and business men in San Francisco. As Mr. J. Lenoir was wending his way down Second street, homeward, last night, about 9 o'clock, lie met two men who tlankel him upon the light hand and the left, thus getting him between two fires. One of them advanced and hailed him with the usual sigual of distress of foot pads, whereupon, and simultaneously, Mr. Lenoir drew his revolver and pointed it at his man, saying "What do you want?" The reply came nervously, "What timo is it, Mister?" Mr. Lenoir and his would-be assailants passed on their respective ways and darkness closed the scene. HOItr. GOOD COW-BOYM. JL.vneliins of I'ive Hustlers at KliakH neare. A gentleman who came in from Galey ville last evening informed an Ei'tTArn reporter that the report was current and universally believed in that place that five rustlers turned up their toes to the daisies in the neighborhood of Shakspeare last week. It seems tbat they came in to take, the town, and a deputy sherilT of Grant county oidcicd them to lay down their arms, which they refused to do The cit uens came to the rescue, disarmed the party and hung them all. The names of the victims or any further particulars could not be learned. Charles Kodig, who lives six miles from Tombstone on the Turquois toad, was in Galey ville looking after a horse which had been stolen a few days previous. Upon inquliy he found that the horse had been there, but that the thief had skipped wilh it, being notified, as was rcuoiled, by tiie deputy sheriff that the owner was looking alter his propcity. Mr. Bodig laid th case before several of the leading citizens, wlio held a mcLtiug and investigated the matter, and gave the deputy sheriff three hours to leave to.vn. It is needless to say he lelt, as the cilizeus are well organized and determined. Ifthisicport is true it does not speak well for Sheriff Behan's judgment in the selection of his deputies. l'hcnlx Hon a iShootl iir ItncUet. Sunday afternoon, the 11th instant, a row occurred in a saloon in I'henix over a game of billiards, between a man by the name ot Col burn and one .lansen, who was called upon as a bystander to decide some disputed point. Meeting on the street shoiMy after, Colburn began again upon Jancen, when they-drew their guns and opened up, Janscn receiving t.o wounds, one of which may prove mortal. Colburn is now in jail awaiting an exam ination on a charge ot an assault with in tent to kill. The Hei aid gives the follow ing incidents of the fight. It seems there was quite a lively scattering among those in the vicinity, which is unlike the meth od of Tombstone crowds, which always remain unconcerned spectator): The shooting affair of yesterday present ed some ludicious scenes as well as un fortunate ones. Our reporter lias gleaned some ot them. A Chluuman who was standing near Rosenthal's old corner received a bullet in the instep, bieaking the bone. On being lilt, he hallooed out, "Ouch 1 Me no caree get shot ; but me got money pay doctor." A bullet parsed very closely to the face of Mr. II. II. Liuvillc, and the muzzle of the pistol was so near his face that the powder buined him. Mr Sharp was standing in the door of Tom Smith's, and a bullet lodged in the casing of the door. It is tinnccevary to say that Mr Sharp got inside ol the saloon in slum u.etic. An officer of tho U. S. Army was seen coining on a dead run around Center street, while the shooting was goini: on, as if an Apache Indian was alter him. "Brave boy." The Indians who were on the street at the time, took sudden leave, and tumbled over each oilier in ihrlr efforts to get away from the flying bullels. They had not stopped i mining at last accounts We hear ot one saloon keeper who, dur ing the heat of excitement, ran in and commenced turning the combination of Ills safe. When last seen he was tiymg lo find the slid combination, and, was obliged to get his paitner to help him out of ihc difficulty. One boy who has been noted for his self brayery, started on the run and when last seen was up by the big ditch north of town.

One of the numerous Chinamen who have come to this countiy wandered away from the Pacific slope and established lumscll at Cranes, and went into the laundry business. He lived quietly, worked bard, and rapidly accumulated wealth wilh which to return to his father land. All went well with him until Weanesday night, when a rustlei, whose name could not be learned, went into the l.itle shanty of the Chioaim.n aud delibe rately went through the establishment for money and clothes to the amount of $100. After commuting tiie lobbery he jumped the town and went to" Gallup. The Chi naman would bland almost anything, but he thought that was going altogether too far. He brooded over the matter until yesterday morning, when he decided upon his plan of operation. He armed himself, and took the first onportunity to get to Gallup. On his arrival there, he hunted up his man, and, without making any introductoiy remarks, he pulled his re volver and put three bullels into his car cass. Botli the Chinaman and his victim bonded the train, which arrived in this city last night. The rustler was put olf at Wingate, and is probably dead ere this. The Chinaman continued to Cranes, and went to work again. The inhabitants of Cranes generally justify tiie action of the pigtail washmns, anil It is sale to infer that he will not be molested again for some tunc to come. TL'CSO.V lTKJIN. From tho Citizen.

Four JlrNsaseM on One Wire at Once. , The Montreal Telegraph Company have now iu full operation the in stiument by w ich four messages may be transmitted over the same wire at the same time, two operators working at each end. Yesterday the " quad" was tested on a number 9 (small size) wire, and worked suc cessfully over a distance of 385 miles. Several well-known United States telegraphers were advised of the re sult, and they aqreed that it was a marvelous feat on so small a wire.
