A tradition has long prevailed that the

not sustain a human body and that many

this delusion by swimming in the lake.

MORE APACHE DEVILTRY.
Three Mea Wounded
The Twa la Aims and the danger
ISDtclal Di. patch to the Epitaph.)
Lordsburg, N. 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.
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.
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.

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."

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

pany is to secure a track of land,
on which a large number of imported
cattle will be placed in the near future.
