P. M Snyder of Kansas City and the Champion Cuttle com pany, came in on last night's train from Duncan. Rev.

S. and Frank Barn urn and Deputy Sheriff Hovey and wife returned Saturday night from Solomon villa Five men are at work on the Wonderful claim this week and mine is looking better than ever. Prospecting is still being pushed vigorously. Colonel Egan returned Satur day from Tucson, where ho went to attend the Miles sword presen tation. He reports the affair a grand success. . Some of the young gentlemen of the town are talking of holding a dance on Thanksgiving night We nope they wilL Some of the ladies of Clifton are "just dying for a waltz." Jim Smith received the neces sary document Saturday night ap pointing him a deputy - United States marshal. Mr. Smith, if he f oltills his new duties as well as he has those of constable, will prove an vfiicieut officer. Next month wjU see at least two more of our good citizens take nnto - themselves better halves These cold winter eights natural ly cause lonely men to speculate upon the many inconveniences of 6ingle blessedness and wish for better things. . Mrs. V. H. Chapman will leave Saturday morning for the land of the boom, San'JJDiego, Cal,, where she will join her husband. . Mrs. Chapman will be missed by a number of friends, who, however, may console themselves with the hope that their loss may prove her gain. Arrangements are being made for a good time at "Metz flat, be low town, on Thanksgiving day. In addition to pony-facing there will be blackbird shooting, chicken shooting, foot-racing and other sports. Efforts are being made to secure delegations from other towns and camps. Lordsburg's now' paper, the Western Liberal, with Messrs Dye and Kidrick at the helm, will make its ' appearance the latter part of this week. It is said that the paper will be a vast improve ment, typographically and other wise, over its predecessor, and we shall gladly welcome it to our table. Francisco Norte, a well-known Mexican citizen of Clifton, was married Monday night last to Miss Jesusita Almeda, a most at tractive and estimable lady, by Rev. Father Sheldorf. The cere mony was witnessed by a large number of our best citizens, and was followed by an enjoyable dance. Many friends wish the couple a happy futnre. Geor-ie Heggie, manager of the company's store at the Metcalf, departed Monday morning last for a three-month's trip to Scot 1 ind. A good sized delegation came down from the niioes to see him off, and he departed not only with their - best wishes, but those of a host of Clifton friends. It is rumored that when Mr. Heggie returns he will not be alone. Joe Tanner, the popular boarding-house keeper at the Long fellow, contemplates a departure about the first of next month for ITew Orleans to visit his aged mother, whom ho has not 6een for thirteen years. Joe will dis pose of his place of business be fore leaving, but has no idea of remaining East permanently. He has been a resident ' of the "wild West" too long to remain con tented for any length of time in the effete East Tomas Rico, a sleight-of-hand porformer who gave an exhibition here recently, attended a Mexican bailie at Rarnura's Monday night last, and, inflated with a high opinion of himself, thought that he was justified in stepping out I Je the door and shooting off his little bulldog. Constable Smith, howeveiv doesn't allow that pas time within tliH town limits, and consequently gathered Tomas in and locked him up. ' ITpon his ap pearance before Justice Blank yesterday mornicg he was lined $20 or 20 days. He rustled wound and got the cash, but the chances are that Don Senor Rico will stop to think beforo he again shoots off his little gun It is understood that during his visit hero Rev. Father Sheldorf has broached to his followers in Clifton and vicinity the idea of establishing a church for the pur pose of holding regular services. The matter met with a ready re sponse and a considerable amount of money was subscribed for the purpose, Father Sheldorf himself contributing 30 toward the pur pose. " Is is proposed to buy tho Clark building at North Clifton near the bridg-j. The matter has not been settled yet, however, and its success will depend altogether upon the liberality with which the proposition is met by our Catholic citizens. Tue Arizona aud New Mexico railway will issue to-day a new freight tariff, to tako effect on December 1st. The classified rate for ores will be as follows: From Clifton to Lordsburg, for ore valued at $200 per ton, the rate will be 10.60 per ton; for ore not to exceed S150, 8; for ore valued not to exceed $100 per ton the rate will be 6; coke and bullion will be rated at from G to $8 per ton and limestone rock at $6 per ton. Messrs. Campbell and Muir re ceived returns the past week from their sample shipment of gold ore. Mr. Muir reports that the results are better than expected and feels jubilant They will now hasten matters and very shortly make a shipment of about 100 sacks which they expect will give them a good working capital for the develop ment of their properties at Bo nanza camp. J. J. Conway, a first-class watch repairer, is visiting Clifton. Mr. Conway is a thorough workman, has visited the principal factories of the United States, and is lately from Springfield, 111. He may bo found at the Tip Top building (Barnum's), where he will bo triad to have yon sit by while he puts your timepiece in order and at the same time explain the modus operandi. ' ' " ------ ----- . Charles Everest- is building np a nice trade at the Coronado chop house. Charley is a first-class caterer, and a reading of his ad. in this issue will give one an idea of the good things which he pro poses to dish up at his placo, and it is needless to say that they will be cooked and served in tho most palatable style. A. M. Feldnian, the traveling photographer of Tucson, who has beeu located at North Clifton for the past few weeks, will remain but a few days longer; and those contemplating having pictures taken should take advantage of tho short time remaining. Mr. Feld man will take either a photograph or tintype. Judge P. M. Thurmond pub lishes his card in this issue. Mr. Thurmond is well known in the county as a painstaking and con scientious lawyer and has located at Clifton because of an. abiding faith in its future. All business intrusted to him will receive care ful and prompt attention. Messrs. Strang and Reardon are still dtivelopiug their Paragon claim near Clifton. They are at present down something over 40 feet and are about to start a drift They have not yet struck a body of ore, but indications point favor ably toward such an event. Antonio Leal, fur tho use of vulgar and obscene language in a public place, was fined 15 yester day morning by Justice Blank upon pleading guilty to tho charge. He paid his fine and promised the Judge that he would "never get drunk any more." S. R.Haigler, formerly superin tendent of the Champion Cattle company, is visiting tho Gebhardt company near Duncan. Mr. Haigler is now located at Payson, where he has a fine ranch, well slocked. J. B. Casey, superintendent of the Champion Cattle company, is in town. Mr. Casey reports that the round-up will not be finished for a month yet Henry Hill and Tom Hoey, it is said, will soon open a saloon at Morenci, directly opposite Morris & Salcido's place.

Miss Jessie being absent attending school at Silver City, came over from Bowie station Tuesday and are now oc cupying their now and corafort- ablo home. What pleasure Mr. Pomeroy will loso by not having the excellent water of Bowie sta tion to drink ho can in iko up by eating the fresh productions of this fertilo valley. We are grow ing slowly but surely in this val ley; not a day passes that does not add to our population either by immigration or n-itural causes. Quite a number of Cliftonites were visiting here during the week Messrs. Y S. and F. C. Barnum, Goodwin, Patterson and Hovey. Mr. Hovey was accom panied by his wife and her sister. They all seemed to enjoy the change of fare, which is nothing surprising. From rawhide beef steaks and oleomargarine, the usual fare of the unfortunate Clif touite, to spring chicken, fre.sh eggs and rauch butter is a change so great as to tickle the palate of an Apache, much less that of thoroughbred 'Americans, and it was with reluctance the party re turned home Saturday, providing themselves, however, with a small supply of Gila valley delicacies. An inquiry into the condition of the estate of Leonard Smith, bet ter known as Lon Smith, formerly of Qliftorr; occupied the attention of tho Probato Court the greater portion of the week. The exami nation, conducted by P. J. Bolan for .the administrator and A.M. Patlerson for the possessors of tho . property in dispute, was ex haustive and conclusive. From it it would appear that tho estate of Lon Smith has an interest in the saloon building known as the Tip lop in Clifton, but how much of an interest will probably have to bo decided by tho courts. The construction of the county hospital, under tLo snperintend ency of Contractor McCarty, is progressing fairly well and will no doubt bo ready for occupancy by Jauuary 1, 1SS8. County Recorder and Deputy Clerk of tho District Court Pedro Michelena, took his departure Fri day for Tombstone to attend the District Court, which convenes thero to morrow. At our last term of Court Judge Barnes noticed how smoothly and expeditiously Mr. Michelena, deputy clerk, per formed his duties, complimented him thereon aud extended him an invitation to attend this term of court at Tombstone, ns many im portant cases are to bo tried, and to a-iist by his ability Hnd experi ence tho clerk there, who is some what inexperienced. We feel proud of Pedro and flattered with the compliment that has been paid him, and know that he will uphold the dignity of old Graham in the city of the dolefnl name. The Hon. Geo. H. Stevens re turned homo yesterday, looking hale aud hearty. Tho dirty slurs of the Tucson Star, in connection with the recent outbreak at the penitentiary, don't seem to effect him. Steve knows he has the greater portion of Gaham county to back him and can therefore af ford to despise the attacks of such vascillating penny-a-liners as Pin head Huges. Gila.

With every advance of emigration into the far West, a new demand is created for llostctter's Stomach Bit ters. Newly peopled regions are fre quently less salubrious than older settled localities, on account of the miasma which rises from recently cleared land, particularly along the bunks of rivers that aro subject to freshets. The agricultural or mining emigrant soon learns, when he does not already know, that tho Bitters afford the only sure protection against malaria, and those disorders of the stomach, liver and bowels, to which climate changes, exposure, and un accustomed or unhealthy water or diet subject him. Consequently, he places an estimate upon this great household specific and preventive commensurate with its Intrinsic mer its, and is careful to keep on hand a restorative and promoter of health so implicitly to bo relief upon in time of need.
