The night of the 21th we ci.mped at Xatzoh's -Camp: named alter one of our Apaoke friends. There he greeted us with a hearty welcome and we having eight ' milk frvs wifli ilfii liAíl p.nono-1 .mi. to divide with him. On the 25th we stopped at White- j river. While thsre, sve met and parted with friends of long acquaint . , , . ,, . auca, i hat night we camnea at Seven Mile Hill, near a -spring of cold mountain water. On the 2Gth we climed the .Seven Mile Hill, the hill being very steep and the teens over loaded, we were compelled to make an extra trip. On our way that day we met an Apa che squaw singing joyfully over a drink of Tiswea. A few minutes later she was lying by the side of the road sound asleep. Tbat night we camped af, Black River and en- ! joyed a rest after jolting over 12miles of rough road, there we met ten men f rom Globe surveying the reservation line. They came to our camy to get some milk for their supper. On the 27th we climbed Black River TT 1 1 .1 1L. C 1. I. .1 mil, ou ine lu oi uicu we uiet j some emigrants fry. rom lexas, going to the head of Black River, where a new placéis being settled. They were a most tired and forlorn looking set having traveled since early spring. That night weaaueped at Turkey Tanks. On the 28th we traveled over very rough road and camped that night at the Mountain Springs. An hour or so after arriving four Indians rode up to our camp. They came from St. Carlos going to Ft. Apache. Ou the 29th we started down Rock Canyon which has the name of being the roughest piece of road in Arizona. The canyon is five miles long. WThen we got down into it about a mile every spoke fell out of the front wheel oilhe hind wagon letting the load fall to the ground. We started down the canyon on foot to hail the head wagon. After a walk of two miles we found it with every spoke out of one of the hind wheels. We were compelled to camp there while father took the crippled wheels to the Gila Valley to get them re paired, a distance of about fifty miles from Rock Canyon. We staid there five days. On th third day four young men, Lewis Johnson, Wil liam Flake, William Freeman and Jordan Palmer from Snowflake came to our camp. They were g&ing to Thatcher to attend the Academy. Two of the boys looked as if they wished they were home with "ma" again. On the fifth day father re turned bringing the wheels also an extra team, wagon and driver. On Sept. 4th iveleft our camp. We were not sorry for ii was nothing but a bed of rocks, chuck full of skunks. The night of the 4th we camped at Soldier Cauycn, a beautiful camping place among large trees and grape vines. That night we made our beds down ou the ground near the wagons. We had jnst got into bed when a dreadful thunder shower came up and iu a half hour the water was six inches deep, and our beds began to slide-down hill. Father and Mr. Majthue ran sor their rubber boots.-': Then they carried us all into the wagons. Mr. Mathews held the lantern while father ished us poor suckers out of the floating bedi. Ou the (5th we went as far as Dead Man; on t he 7th we traveled only a mile then nrad cainp as the roads were so muddy the teams could not pull the loads. On the Sth we reached the top of the moun- tainwhere we could lake a good view of the beautiful valley we were going to. On UieOth we arrrveu i ti "Oil. al ! ley.

A starting incident, of which Mr. John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the subject, is narrated by him as follows: "I was in a'most dread ful' condition.! My skin was almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue coated, pain continually in back and sides( no appetite gradually ; growing weaker day by day. Three physi cians had given me up. Fortunat ely, a friend advised trying 'Elec tric Bitters;' and to my great joy and surprise, the first bottle made a decided improvement. I continued their use for three weeks and am now a" well man. I know they saved my life, aud robbed the grave of another victim." No one should fail to try them, 'only . SOcts., guaranteed at F. J. Wattron's drug store. Current Topics.

Thirty years ago the Suez canal was opened. That it has been a tre- fiaaucial success of late s shown by the latest report that of 1898. The receipts of y 1898 j have amounted to 87,900,000 francs. , which exceeds thostTof any previous. ' year. ! j Recently a specialist in New York i told aatieut that he had heart dis I asS whereupon the latter &went off ' and killed himself. A post-mortem examination followed, and it was j demoust rated that the man's heart i was perfectly sound. All of which ;goes to prove that "thereare other-." besides tlie weather man who dut know it all. The Federation of Churches of Pittsburg has investigated tenement conditions in that city. "Sixty per sons sleeping (half by night and hal f by day, apparently) in three small rooois.'contatcinated by two typhoid fever sufferers" is one of the discov eries which has been made by the Allegheny department of charities. Ten to fifteen boarders, mostly Hun garians, in one room seems to be the normal state" of affairs in a certain -section. An indention by M. Pierre Paul Guibsrt, of Millau, Department of Aveyron, France, is intended to pre vent railway collisions. It is, in ef fect, a simple and nat ural application of the "block system;" but, instead of merely displayinga signal at each end of a section of track showing that the same is occupied, M. Gui bert's system aetsalsoon che engines of the approaching locomotives aud,' by uttitig off steam automatically, brings the train to a standstill. Not a little attention seems to nuve been aroused in Vieana in regard to the merits of Stenzel's UDvetl ifiying machine. The apparatus -resembles a stork in the form of its construc-v tion. The expanded wings, measur ing nineteen feet in length and five in breadth, are made -of hollow steel ribs, covered with very light linen, the propelling power is supplied by an unusually powerful electric motor, the machine being steered by a bird like tail, consisting of two adjustable , s.jades; the motor, the propelling power of which is calculated to last three hours, weighs eight pounds, while the whole the whole machine does not e-seed seventeen pounds in weight. The wings will sustain a man weighing one hundred and fifty pounds, the availability of this ma chine having been proved in several successful trials. A Sure Sign of Croup. Hoarseness in a child that is sub ject to croup is a sure indication of the approach of the disease. If Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is gi ven as soon as the child becomes hoarse, -or even after the croupy cough has appeared, it will prevent the ttack. Many mothers who have croupy children always keep this remedy at hand aud find that it saves them much trouble and worry. It can always be depended upon and is pleasant to take. Fur sale by F. J.
