Thk lielief is growing that the Sail on lake has changed our climate. The practice of carrying firearms in the city limits should be stopped. The Pheuiz Herald and Arizona Republican are funding the territorial indebtedness. Uncle Sam might send one of those balloon dynamiter down this way just now without hurting people's feelings.

The California people are not a whit smart er than we'ems. The Star pays the last board of su pervisors, H. G. Howe, and the tax payers who paid for it, the following compliment: "The handsomest and most convenient map in the territory is that of Cochise county, a copy of which may be seen in the office of the county recorder.

The Sweetwater dam in San Diego county holds back enough storage water to irrigate 100,000 acres of land. The projectors of this enterprise sell water to farmers at $3.50 per acre per year.

Mr. John Grady, a popular tonorial artist of Tombstone, arrived in Xopales last Tuesday. He is so favorably im pressed with the prospects of Xogalec that he has concluded to open a shop here. Roeord For Cnitlr. lien. Collector Christ writes to a friend in Xogales and the latter furnishes the Nogales Record with this interesting information concerning the trouble with claiming stray sto,k in Mexico. "Acting Secretary of State Wharton says there has been frequent correspon dence between the Department and the authorities at the City ol Mexico, but that no understanding has been arrived at. He promised that a letter should be written at once to Minister Ryp and urge that the matter be spe ily adjusted." Count Montalsnac. The Count, who resided in Tomb stone for several months, making it his headquarters, is now in France. The Xogales Record furnishes the in formation that he has perfected ar rangements to establish two colonies of one hundred families each, of French agriculturists, in Sonora, one near Fronteras and the other at Cacita. Fronteras is about 90 miles south east of Xogales, and Cacita is some 35 miles south of Xogales on the line of the Sonora railroad. The purchase of the Cacita and Cibuta ranches. owned by Don Jose Pierson, is now pending, the price and all arrange ments having been agreed upon and settled. The Cibuta grant is one of the finest locations, for a small colony in the state ; plenty of water and very rich soil. Sonora Cant .Ilium. L B Howard of San Diego who re cently visited the coal fields near Guaymas, says that the main opera tions now being carried on aro some forty miles from Ortiz, a town on the Sonora railway between Hermosillo and Guaymas. The concession, which is owned by a Mexican company, covers about 4,000,000 acres. The enormous extent of the anthracite deposit may be com prehended when it is said that borings fifty miles apart have found coal. The diamond drill has gone through four veins; the first being 2 feet, the second i feet, the third 7 feet and the fourth the drill bad penetrated 22 feet and is still working in coal. The coal is by actual test equal to the finest Lehigh valley product of anthracite. It can he traced for miles on the surface, and the different borings of the drill show the same four veins of the same thick ness. A railway sixty or sixty-five miles will bring the coal to the harbor at Guaymas, and the entire distance is very smooth, offering no gineering obstacles. There is a rumor that S. C. Heaton, of the San Xavier Hotel, Tucson, won $2,000 at roulette Monday evening.

While the parents were congratulating them selves upon their good fortune in sav ing their little one, the grim messen ger was slowly aud imperceptibly doing its work. The little fellow complained yesterday of not feeling well and the parents started in the cool of the evening for Tombstone with him. When near the old San Diego smelter, the child breathed his last The fatal flames had done their work without a warning Although he hod eecaped disfiguration of hie body he had inhaled thedeadiy air. The distracted parents received all the condolence that sympathetic friends could offer in their unhappy hours.
