TOMBSTONE EPITAPH. BEPPY & PEOK, Publishers. F2rrh. Street, between Fremont and Allen Tombstsne, CocMse County, Arizona. Subscription, one year. .$4 oo tNTEKED IN TH fOT Of FICE AS 8EC0NP-CLAM MATTEH. OFFICIAL PAPER OP COOHISK COUNTY The earth has tipped back the other way since Bagg's friends paid his fine and got him out of jail. The New York World, which is un questionable Democratic authority, says: "The issue is still for free trade." Oh. Bane. Baee. Bags, why don't you g and bag your head? The people are tired of listening to the story of your wrongs. On the 30th ult. the Senate by a vote 'of 20 to 18 appropriated $250,000 for surveying reserveir sites n the public lands in he west. 1 Bagg considers that his course tn villifying the. Court has been indorsed by the people. No so; they subscribed the money only through sympatny ipr nis family. There is a disposition not to -raw party lines very tight in the county elec tion this fall, and the party that puts up the best men will meet with the greatest measure of success. Mark Smith has been endorsed by the Salt River people on account of having exempted Arizona from the provisions of the Land Court bill, but the remainder of the Territory does not feel so well sat isfied with him on that account. Mr. Bagg's paper sympathizes with Hop Kee, who receives only MS tor damages to his crop by reason of the railroad passing over his land. As "Poor Hop" only asked for $35. the sympathy seems to be misplaced. And by the way, it is .a peculiar attitude for Mr. Bagg to be placed in,that of having a tender feeling for a Chinaman. WORKWOMEN'S WAGES. Price Paid in Foreign Countries at Certified to by U. S. Consuls. In the year 1877, the Department of State, at Washington, addressed a'circu lar to the United States Consuls of Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgi um, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, requesting an swers to the following questions: 1. What is the rate of wages usually paid to laborers of every class, but with more especial reference to agricultural laborers, mechanical laborers and those upon public works and railways? 3. What is the cost of living to the la boring classes, or the prices paid for what may be termed the necessaries of life? 3. So far as practicable, give a com . parison of the present rates with those prevailing during the past five years, both as to wages and cost of living. Very full and complete replies were forwarded from all of the Consuls, and in a summary of their reports the following statements were made: 1. The rate of wages in the United States, roughly estimated, is more than twice those of Belgium; three times those of Denmark, France and Germany; once and a half those in England and Scotland; and more than three times' those in Italy and Spain. 2. The prices of the necessaries of life are lower in the United States than in any of the foregoing countries; that is, the laboring people of Europe cannot purchase the necessaries of life which are comrnon to the American people as low as the same ca be purchased in the . the United States; or vice vesa, if the working people of the United States lived on the same quality of food, or com paratively the same, and exercised the same frugality as the working people of Europe, they could live as cheaply as the working people of any country in Eu rope. The following quotations taken from the reports, of Germany, are a fair aver age of those made from the principal parts of Europe. From England and France the reports are a little more fa vorable, but elsewhere they are less fa vorable than in Germany. Edgar Stanton, United States Consul to Bremen, Germany, says: For acric'ultural lrborers the rate of wages varies greatly throughout the Ger man Empire, rising or falling according as the locality is near to or remote from manufacturing centers. To exemplify this, I give below the present (1878) daily rate of wages for various parts of Germany, viz: Bremen and vicinity... t .',... 56 cts. Bavarian Highlands...' 53 " Upper Rhine Valley 41 " Lower Rhine Valley 31 " Lake Constance and emirons 40 ' Lower Highlands 33 " Ujpper Alsace 45 " Oppein Silesia 18 " These laborers board themselves. The wages now paid throughout this consular district, embracing Silesia and a portion of the .Rhine provinces, are as follows, viz: Machinists, locksmiths, wagonsmiths, coppersmiths, plumbers, carpenters, join ers, masons and hackdrivers 71 cents a day, bearding themselves. .Navvies, day laborers saddlers and shoemakers - 47 cents a day, without board. Butchers, bakers and chimney sweep erswithout board and lodging, 59 cents dav. I Introduction Butchers, bakers -and brewers with board and lodging, $2.14 per week. Cooks (females with board and lodging, $36 to $43 per year. Cook (males) with board and lodg ing, $48 to $50 yearly, according to merit. Furriers, tanners, weavers and factory hands, $3.57 per week, without board. In Munster factory hands earn daily. . . .65 cts Day laborers earn daily 5 Field hands earn daily S3 " Artisans and mechanics earn daily 71 These laborers board themselves. The consul remarks: "The diet of the working man is scant, and meat is a luxury seldom indulged in more than once a week, whilst the daily allowance for beer and spirits too often curtails that which should furnish a wholesome meal. The towns are in consequence heavily burdened with poor rates." The consul then gives a statement of necessaries of life, and they range high er than in the United States. N. K. Craig, consul at Saxony, Ger many, says: -p- While the times have been fair for some classes of workmen, others have been kept from starvation only by pub lic charity. Grown persons in some industries must work fourteen hours a day to earn forty-seven cents per week. At night they cannot afford to work, as their wages would not purchase the lights re quired. While the' men, who generally use ma chinery, are able to earn from $1.50 to $2.50 per week, many of the women, es pecially makers of handmade embroid ery, make no more than one-third part of that amount. Ihose in this city of the. lower classes are gla4 to obtain any kind of menial employment which will bring them from twenty to twenty-five cents per day. Plain livine is the universal rule in this part of Europe. The poor classes in southern Saxony fare very meanly in deed. For homes they have generally a sin gle room, which answers for workshop as well. For household furniture they have a few plain chairs or wooden stools, a ta ble, stove, and sometimes a loom. For beds, they have the bare floor or pallets. For tuel, they have the. dead branches which fall from trees, and which are car ried by them in their arms from the King's forest. For food, they have black bread, made of rye, coffeo made princi pully of chicory, a few boiled potatoes, sometimes a little cheese, butter or goose grease, and on Sundays a pound of meat for a family of five or six persons. Their clothes are of the coarsest material and their shoes are generally wooden soled slippers. THE NEW FORAGE PLANT. of Espersette Into Regions of Colorado. the Arid CONSTRUCT RESERVOIRS. The method of saving water in resJ ervoirs for the purpose of irrigation and for househould use is one that will eventually come into use in Arizona on an extensive scale. In parts of Africa where the rainfall is extremely light, splendid crops are raised by the use of water caught during the rainy season in immense reservoirs. The fact that during the rainy season in Arizona par ticularly in Pima and Cochise counties, a great quantity of water pours down the mountain sides, causing freshets, injur ' ing farms by washing soil away and wasting itself in the sea. This fact is one that should set people to thinking. If only a small part of this was saved in reservoirs the farmers in the dryest up-' lanus couia nave a pienmui supply 111c year round. Of course the construction of reservoirs of adequate size would re quire capital. This might be raised by the formation of companies among those who might be benefited by the water. No investment would yield more certain, and few, mere speedy returns. Those supplied with water in this way could laugh at the elements. The "dry season" would no longer be an object of appre hension. The irrigation question would be largely settled. Nothing is more certain than that a great part of the desert land of New Mexico and Arizona will in time be made productive by such means, and will in time be inhabited by populous farming communities. Phenix Herald. Something has been going wrong with the "United Order of Honor" and much, of the membership is greatly troubled thereat. This order was virtually unknown to Arizonians till about a year ago ' when a Mr. Alexander Rothenstein appeared upon the scene and by dint of many plausible representations succeded in securing quite a large following for the order, not only here but also in Nogales and other towns in Southern Arizona. But evidently the financial condition and standing of the order was not above suspicion at the time, although Mr. Rothenstien scrupulously kept such little things to himself. Recent developments have, however,brought them unpleasant ly forward and when once up they no longer down, Rothenstein has been publicly accused of running the machine for his own personal aggrandisement, and as there appears to be considerable truth in the charges, an immense amount of "kicking" is going on under "good of the order." The indications are that the end, at least of Rothenstein'a manage ments not far off and that members ol the otder in Tucson as well as elsewhere can charge up their charter fees, initia tion, dues and assessments to profit and loss Citizen. 1 o Wolcott buys and sells for cash and hcncocaanQt be undersold. Denver Field and Farm. J Aside from alfalfa, no ether forage plant has created so much interest in Colorado as espersette, or sainfoin. Al though but recently introduced in the United States from Hungary by the Agricultural Department, it has sprung greatly into favor, and there is a con stantly increasing demand for the seed, which sells all the way from $2 to $5 per pound. Flint tells us it is a leguminous plant and differs from alfalfa in many ways. The stems are two to three feet long, straggling, tapering, smooth; the leaves are in pairs of painted oblong leaflets, slightly hairy on the undei side; flower stalks higher than the leaves, ending in a spike of crimson or variegat ed flowers succeeded by flat, hard pads, toothed on the edge and prickly on the sides; the root is a perennial and hard and woody. The plant flowers early in lulv and two croos a season may be counted on here in Colorado. It does best in a calcareous soil. So far a's we can learn it is a splendid plant for the arid regions. Almost everything that is desirable in a general purpose forage plant is claimed for this. It furnishes a'n abundance of nutritious feed all through the hottest and driest months. It needs no irrigation, and re quires only to be sown to yield continu ously the largest crops of grass. It flourishes well in the south of France and is highly esteemed as a plant for in creasing the flow of milk in cows. Un like alfalfa, it does not produce bloat and may be fed in a green state with impunity. As yet the plant has not taken a stand in Colorado, but we know of several peo ple who will try it this season. Half a dozen of our friends in New Mexico are planting it. The people at the Jesuit College, St. Mary's, Kas, have been growing it for two seasons, and are very greatly elated about its success and pos sibilities. They have set out quite a large quantity of seed taken last season, and are doing all they can toward ex tending the propagation of the plant. It may be well to add that it will not produce so prolific a crop as alfalfa, but is much more nuttitious; in fact its pods and seed are more nutritious than oats. We believe espersette has future in Colorado. A year's time will tell. "BILLARP" FOR PROTECTION. A friend tells the following story: Major Smith of Atlanta, better known as "Bill Arp," was talking with me about matters and things not long ago. "You know I was an old' fashioned Democrat," said Bill, "brought up to believe in free trade and sailors' rights. I am one now, but something has happened. I own a little farm neir Cartersville. I used to gather my corn and sell it in Atlanta for whatever they would give me. I had some pasture land for my stock and I raised wheat, vegetables and fruit in a small way. What was not consumed was wasted. When the tariff went into operation old Joe Brown started some iron developments near-by, and the Cartersville Station, became quite a vil lage. The day before I left home I sold seventeen loads of h; Buyers didn't bargain- for it but came and took all I could spare at my own price. I haven't sold a bushel of corn in several years. These fellows come and buy it by the dozen for roasting ears. It's so with everything that grows on my land. I cannot raise as much as they want. I'm in favor of the thing that did it, so I'm a Protectionist."

He left his party at Silver City, and in the mean time Mr. Ropes is making an examina tion ot the passes through the moun tains in order to find the most feasible route for a connection of the Sonora road with the main Santa Fe system. This looks very much like Tombstone was going to have a railroad after all. The heavy wind during the storm of Thursday afternoon blew down one of the smoke-stacks at the Silver King mill in Pinal; unroofed one or two houses and played havoc with seveial buildings in the plate. The telegraph wire was blown down. o That distention of the stomach whkih many people feel after eating, may bo due to improper mastication of the food but, in most cases, it indicates a weak ness of the digestive organs, the best remedy for which, is one of Ayer's Pills to be taken after dinner.
