The demand for turkeys is much greater than the supply. Midnight mass was celebrated at the Catholic church last night. There will be services at the Episcopal church this morning at lo o'clock. Nearly $400 have been put up by the principals in the Grxco-Roman wrestling match this evening. Considerable money has been staked on the result of the wrestling match at SchiefTelin hall to-night. Quite a large congregation were in at tendance at the services held at the Catholic church last night. We are pleased to note the arrival in the city of Mr. L. V. Blinn, who has been absent for some weeks. The condition of Mr. MacNeil, who has been reported as in a precarious con dition, is much better, and the prospects are favorable to his recovery. John Crowley the efficient Wilcox de puty sheriff arrived in town list evening. Mr. Crowley is circulating the petition calling upon the governor for an extra session ofthe Legislature, in his vicinity. He reports that all the voters in his sec tion are signing it. Miss Minnie Wallace, who has been teaching the Tres Alamos school the past year, returned home last erening. Miss Wallace has shown herself to be a teacher of no mean degree during her occupancy of that school. A tradition has long prevailed that the waters of Lake Tahoe, California, would not sustain a human body and that many daring swimmers had perished by vent uring into its treacherous depths. Pro fessor Le Conte and the young men ef bis scientific expedition "nave exploded this delusion by swimming in the lake. The Suez Canal is ninety-two miles long and twenty-six feet deep, the con struction having covered a period of thirteen years and the capital employed amounted to $85,000,000 in round num bers. Of the tonnage between the East and west, the proportions are 104 voyages by the canal and sixty by the Cape of Good Hope. No where in Tombstone was the ad vent of the world's festival welcomed in more cordial style than at the Arcade. The Cornish boys were there, and the rich melody of the voices attracted a large crowd ol lovers of music They were all in fine voices, and the vocalisms of Tombstone's favorite quartet were freely rendered until the small hours of the morning. The Epitaph publishes, on the second page the proclamation of Governor Zu fjck, counseling the people of Arizona to forbearance, and expressing the convic tion tUat the general government is am ply able to cope with and ultimately sub due the wily Apache. The governor ap pears to be sincere in his belief that an uprising of the citizens of the southwest is imminent, and that the indiscriminate slaughter of the redskins is enntern femplated. We assuie our distinguished itro'torial chief that no such views are reMned by the good pePle of Co- thise cty. A bold attempt to escape was made by antral convicts at the Yuma penitentiary m Friday 'a$t SoJlie hrce .r four prii" ner were at work on hill near the prison, ben a Mexican, a 10-yc. .", ia for shooting at the chief of police of Tucson, suddenly seized a stone and struck the uard in the face.

M., Dec. 24. The Indians wounded three men to-day near Duncan. One ofthe injured men will probably die. The Duncan rangers composed of the best men in the com munity, are now on their trail and will follow them until they are overtaken, which will probably be to-morrow. Lieutenant fishek. another account. Lordscurc, N. M.f Dec 24. A fight occurred near Duncan to-day, be tween a party of men and quite a large body of Indians. The attack was made from an ambuscade of rocks and but little lime was afforded the whites to de fend themselves. Several volleys were fired by the Indians, resulting in the wounding? of three of the whites. On account of the lateness of the hour and the excitement occasioned by the un expected assault of the Indians in such close proximity to the settlement, the names of the injured men could not be ascertained. One of the men will prob ably die. Intense excitement prevails and the disposition of the people is for pursuit and utter annihilation of the murderous gang. The rangers were notified and are now on the trail with a strong probability of overtaking the band before to-morrow. Mchooi Kxerel-rti. The various exercises at the school house yesterday were of a very interest ing character. The Tombstone schools, under the present excellent management, are deserving of greater attention from our citizens. A reparter of the Epitaph was present yesterday, and was both sur prised and pleased to observe the mar velous progress made in our public school during the past year especially pleased to witness the wonderful results effected by kindness and good manage ment. If this school is not the largest in point of numbers, the EPITAPH is thoroughly convinced that it has no su perior .in the territory as an institute of learning. Miss Herring has an adapta bility for the position of principal in a marked degree, and the government and control nf the school under her super vision is up to the highest standard. Miss Herring's experience in the graded schools of New York have admirably fitted hrr for the laborious and responsi ble position she now occupies in Tomb stone. Miss Hart, Miss Ellison, Miss Haines. Mrs. Shaw and Miss Powell are a very competent corps of teachers, and to their intelligent and able efforts and manner of imparting knowledge to their scholars is largely due the phenomenal success and proficiency attained by the school. In conclusion, the Epitaph would suggest to the parents of our scholars the advisability of visiting more frequently our city schools, as their pres ence tends to encourage the children and incites them to be more studious. fet-fret Capita.

The following contribution to the col umns of the New York Graphic is from the pen of our esteemed townsman, Rev. J. H. Young. The Graphic says: "Ob viously Rector Young draws a sharp line between mugwumps and genuine inde pendents. His muse may be a little rug ged and sardonic in tone, but nuisances are more effectively abated with carbolic acid than with rosewater." Oh, all e .art mugwumps, come, ltaten to me, (Vhile I Inj ol onr national pet A Sheriff, a Mayor, a Governor be, And he'll make a good President ret. Your phenomenal rote in the year "82 Was an omen we conld not forget. Yoi endorsed him again: bnt b.'fcre he sets through lie will make a good President yet. And aealn thi Gubernatorial year, When ronr knives far oir life-blood were whet, Ton iwom by oar G rover, and Hod in his ear; Bat he'll make a good President yet. Your hopes of success as the powers that would be. Mas', by this, be considerably wet. Bat this rainbow of hope on yonr clond yon can see. That he'll malcn a gocd President yet. Tie rnecals already turned oat by thr. score Are a tbou.aud and one ; and you bet That so the fjood work will go on more and more. Till he'll make a gord President yet. In Stockholm, Sweden, the Govern ment runs the saloons. In this city too often the saloons run the Govern ment. As King Thebaw goes into exile he takes his suite of four with him, thus resem bling a royal flush with a king at the head. The dance at the skating carnival last night was largely attended. The lovers of this aluring sport are always sure of an enjoyable time at this popular resort. The Epitaph lives in the hope that before another Christmas rolls around, the Apaches will be removed from our borders and peace and prosperity will come to our people. A party of Boston capitalists are en route to Arizona, for the purpose of pur chasing the ranch and stock of H. C. Hooker. The agent informed an Epi taph reporter that if they failed to make the purchase of Mr. H.,some other portion of the Sulphur Spring valley would proba bly be selected. The desire of the com pany is to secure a track of land, on which a large number of imported cattle will be placed in the near future. The Epitaph will welcome the gentle men to Cochise county, and trusts that a suitable locality may be obtained for the purposes desired. Spiced pig's feet at R, P. MansfleldV. A SOUND COMPANY.
