It is a strange sight to nitnees the hundreds and thousands tf fretful health seekers pass through the ory "rCCi sf il:cir hopes onrl to the dampness ami fogs of the coast in California without realising their fatal error. Upon leaving Arizona at Yuma, regardless of the eeaaon of the year, the car windows are open and a de lightful brcezee, dry and pure, prevails. After p&ftsing over the desert, on lbs grade leading up to San Gorgonio pass, the windows are alosed and little later on a fire is built and it a storm pre vails much discomfort is felt. Even after reaching the coast side ol the mountains the winter breeze is damp and chilling. The contrast is even more striking upon leaving California and the delightful change is ex perienced as the train drops down to a lower level, the fires extinguished and the windows reopened. These circum stances, while seemingly trifling, are significant to the invalid and should warn him of the mistake he is making. There is without exception, no better climate for people suffering with pul monary complaints than right here in Arizona, and the doors of this natural sanitarium are open to the whole world. Florence Enterprise. In the Cosmopolitan for January is an article by Gertrude Atherton on the literary Development of California with an attractive gallery of the liter ati, by way of illustration. The pict ure of Mrs. Kate Douglas Wiggin will be interesting to the children who have read ber books in our school library and also to many devoted personal friends in Arizona. Our Copper. In alluding the copper deposits of South Eastrrn Arizona acd Sew Mex co tho Denver Republican says: Some day an enormous amount of capital will be iniested in the develop ment of copper mines in New Mexico and Arizona. The wealth or the South West in copper is very far from being confined to one district. In Southwestern New Mexico and Southeastern Arizona there are vast deposits of copper, some of which is al most pure. When the demand for copper becomes great enough for the development of these deposits, the out put of the Southwest in that metal will make New Mexico and Arizona rank with Lake Superior county in copper production. The Tucson Citizen has been in formed that Mr. G. W. Lang started with about 500 bead of cattle from near Benson the 1st ol December, to drive through to California. When near Maricopa he lost 75 head and only recovered three head at a cost ex ceeding the value of the animals. He ahipped.lhe balance from Gila Bend on the 3Ii of December. The cattle are said to have been in very poor con diction when shipped. The Prospector thinks there must be a mistake about this, as Mr. Lang ctosscd the Colorado river recently with his cattle in good order. The sentimental Mail and Express of New York says in sermonizing upon the recent battle with the Sioux in which the seventh cavalry was nearly annihilated. "To war against Indians as "against civilized nations is to invite disaster; to shoot (hem down, like mad dogs, in the face of their profe-eionsof submis sion, is palpably inhuman. It is likely tnat this outbreak terminates the struggle, for the agency Indians are more likely to be intimidated than in spired by its consequences. But again it advances the old demand: How -can we best deal with the Indian ques tion? la the solution in force or in philanthropy, or in both, or in'neither? But let our charity never fail, in any case." C. S. Meserve of the Haskell Indian school say : White men of all classes are obliged to work, and there is no reason why the Indians should live by other means. They are able to earn what they eat and wear, and it is only just and fair hat they should be com pelled to gain a support in that way. 1 I placed on her finger a ring; As we stood 'nealh the sycamore trse; Now it's winter and then it was Spring And ahe'al-o returned that to me. Lifo A recent special from Washington says that there is little prospect of a reciprocity treaty with Mexico at pres ent and intimates that the present ad ministration does not encourage any concessions on the part of Mexico, and Mexicans do not expect anything ot the kind, notwithstanding the reports that Minister Reyan's recent visit to Washington was for the purpose ot presenting each aitreaty, submitted by I Mexico,' CRITICISMS Of the Press XJpou the Removal of General For the.

Is a soldier to allow a squaw to kill him because she is a squaw and he is a white soldier? How long is thu wretched policy to continue? Enterprise : George Push, A Cron ly and .o n Brown, stockmen of the San Pedro, whoso principle interests are in Tucson, have npplicd to the District Couit for an injunction to re strain the Pinal County Bank, the su pervisors, treasurers and rood contract ors from expending any county funds or contracting any debts against the county in building a wagon road to Globe.

New Years day is generally obsered as a holiday in Mexico, but the habit of "swearing off' on that day to begin again the next hasn't jet been adopted by the young men of that republic, Mexico stands ready to agree to any reasonable scheme of reciprocity, and it is our own fault that the large in crease of trade to be thus obtained is witbeld from us for the advantage of Eurepcan nations.

Clayton, that where persona! property capable of actual delivery, has been sold while in the possession of the vendor, or under his control, such de livery must be made and must be fol lowed by a continued change of pos session, or the sale will be presumed fraudulent aud void as against the ven dor's creditor, but that when it hap pens that the subject of the sale is not reasonably capable of actual delivery, a constructive delivery will be sufficient, as in cases. where it might not be im possible, but would be injurious and unusuat, to remove the property from where it happened to be at the time of the transfer.

The Latest From Th Scene of Hostilities. Chicago, A Lone Pine Nebraska, special dispatch says: "All along the Elkhorn and 'Missouri River Valley road the people beliove themselves in great peril in case the battle that seems imminent at Pine Ridge, should j result adversely to the troops. A nart-nf the National Guards of Nebraska, 100 men is already in the field and Governor Thayer has ordered rc-inforcements. General W. L. Colby, of the atale troops is in command, with headquar ters at Rushville, where the larger body of militia is stationed. Colouel Cody (Buffalo Bill) chief of staff to Governor Thayer, will confer with General Colby at Rushville and the two will decide upon the best point at which to station treops. The report that Colouel Cody was to join General Miles at Pine Ridge is untrue. Buffalo Bill takes a gloomy view of tho future and expresses his opinion that a big battle is almost sure to occur within a few days in the immediate vloluity of Pine Ridge. The Indians, he said havo reached the edge of their mad ness in which they are worse than ever and the Messiah crazo has made them fatalists to that degree that they firm- believe that if they ga under in battle they will come to life again in the spring. Should the Indians mass and make an attack an the troops at Pine Ridge and overcome them there would be an over running of the country that would mean more than a reppetition of former horrors. The fear of this more than any be lief that the Indians will raid the country beforcoffering battle to the regulars has led to throwing out of a line of state troops aloug the Nebraska frontier.
