O. DUN1I Alt, Edltnr St Prop. rreaout Htreet, Opposite City Mall. Tombstone, Uochha County, Arizona CITY AiD COIWY OFFICIAL PAPER Peerless stock was quoted on Thurs day, in San Francisco, at 25 cants. All the Chinese laundries in San Francisco have closed, on account of the arrest of a number of laundrymen, for violating a city ordinance. Two Apaches are reported to have been seen on Thursday, at Mescal Springs, in the Santa Ritas. They were moving in the direction of Uenson. The signers of the communication to Mr. Clum include prominent county and city officials, merchants, mining superin tendents, stockmen and journalists of Cochise county. Inasmuch as ex-Agent Clum superin tended the removal of a lartje majority of the Indians now at San Carlos and located them upon that reservation, he would undoubtedly be the proper man to superintend the removal of the entire tribe from the the territory if such a step is determined upon. Inasmuch as he might be considered an interested party to the transaction, Judge Street decided yesterday to trans fer the injunction case to the district court for tril. The conclusion reached by Judge Street is a proper one, and will commend itself to the good judgment of our citizens. ' It is now thought that Dakota may possibly be admitted if Montana is al lowed to come in as an offset. True jfcfc?oa hasonly about one-tenth the population of Dakota, but then most of the Montanans are democrats, and that .s a. great point in their favor with the present congress. Governor Zulickwill probably appoint the following gentlemen as the new board of Arizona prison commis sioners: B. A. Packard, of Tomb stone; A. D. Lemon, of Phenir, and Hugo Richards, of Prescott. The Yuma county member has not resigned yet, and says he will not. General CXOOK thus far has failed to convince our peop'e that he wishes to subdue the hostile Apaches. The Epi taph does not wish to indulge in any abuse of the old veteran, but we must say in all sincerity, that, we hope he has been assigned tc some other locality. His best days have been given to the service of his country. He proved himself a hero in the late rebellion, and for his fealty to the old flag and his loyalty to his country we refrain from any harsh criticisms. Information was brought to town this morning that two bands of Indians, con sisting of six or seven each, camped last night, north of the Mule mountains, just back of Sandy Bob's ranch; their camp fires making them visible from the Mor mon hay camp, four miles distant. Night before last they stole some of Sanderson & Lyall's horses, aiso some of Abbott's, and killed a steer half a mile from Ab bot's house, taking the hind-quarters. They are still in the Mule mountains The Sheriff at once telegraphed to the commanding officer at Huachuca for troops to pursue them. The Los Angeles Herald of the 16th inst. contained a vigorous and well writ ten editorial on the Apache outrages, in the course of which the writer says: "We wonder much at the patience and forbearance of the people of that-section. What right has the government to usurp the richest soil, to locate thereon wild beasts, without guarding the people from constant eruption and devastating foray, and indiscriminate rape and murder, and hideous post mortem mutilation? Would the massacree of these demons be more than the assertion of the right of self-defense, which rises supreme above government and laws? The New York Tribune prints a long article, in which serious charges are made against some of the promoters of the New Jersey & Sonora Mining Co., of which Governor Zulick is said to be pre sident. United States Consul Willnrd at Guaymas, is said to have advanced the New Jersey & Sonora Mining company $20,000, all of which is a loss. Senator MePherson, of New Jersey, and several other gentlemen of Newark, New Jersey, are said to be heavy losers through mis representations made to them of the value of the mines and their paying capabilities. A request has been made for ihe appointment oi a receiver to wind up the business of the New Jersey & Sonora company. FruceedlftgB f the Board f per Tiaiirs. Tombstonk, A. T., Jan. 8, 1886.

Prof. Marc Christul is trying to ar range a match for Schumacker at Tucson, with some f( the local sports, and per haps a glove contest, between Hall, of that city, and Mart Mahoney, of Tomb stone. Shumacker's shoulder is healing in good shape. Tho Laughlng-Gns "Fatl." Tho belles of New York are quick to grab right hold of now ideas that are frivolous, and it is a pity that their in clination in that respect cannot bo di verted into higher nnd broader chan nels. I wont yesterday to have a tooth pulled. New 'York has several places exclusively for that jerky sort of sur ,gery, wherein no other dentistry is prac ticed, nnd whoro great quantities of laughing-gas are used. Tho accustomed patient sits placidly down in tho chair, breaths out of tho bag, goes to sloop, nnd awakens in a minuto or so to find that his tooth is gone. Ho has suffered neither dread nor pain. But tho novices do not divest themselves of tho fright of anticipation, and tho waiting-room is therefore fujl of wobegono faces and trembling limbs, and the voice of per suasion is constantly raised. This time, however, I saw a bovy of fashionably dressed girls, not ono 'of whom showed symptoms of aching teeth or palpitating terror. "Now, ladies," said ono of the operators, "please step this way." They went into tho sanctum, but were not so perfectly secluded that I could not 6ee what was done to them. Each in turn took a blithesome scat in the chair, breathed tho gas, foil back insensible speedily aroused herself, and gavo place to another subject Then they paid 50 cents apieco and departed, laughing and chattering. "They tako tho gas for cxhileration," said the doctor, when I asked for an explanation. "It is usually a cure for headache, it vivifies u jaded brain, and it has suddenly become a stylish thing to take. After a late night at a recep tion, or any other cause of lassitude, tho belles visit us in parties like tho one vou'vo seen, and take light doses of laughing-gas. That is tho latest swell fad, you know." He slept days and made up berths all night Truly, ho began making up berths at Jersey City, and when ho got through, about daylight, it was time to begin to unmake them again. All night I could hear him opening and shutting tho berths liko a concertina. He sang softly to himself all night long: You must camp a llttlo In tho wilderness: And then we'll all go homo. And played his own accompaniment on the berth. When in rcposo ho was generally asleep with a whisk-broom in ono hand nnd the other hand extended with tho palm up, waiting for a dividend to bo declared. Ho generally slept with his mouth open, so that you could read his inmost thoughts.and when I complained to him about tho way my bunk felt he said he was sorry and wanted to know which cell I was in. Bill Nye in Boston Qlobe. If there is anything Old Naco is proud of it is his ability to lift heavy burdens. He can carry with case a trunk which few other men can lift. Ho is employed in tho family of Judgo Snivcrly of Bren ham, whose son Fred is a student at tho University of Texas. When Fred left home for tho university his careful moth er had packed an immenso trunk for him to tako with him. Old Naco insist ed on carrying tho hoavy trunk to tho depot, which feat ho accomplished with out difiiculty. When vacation began Fred Snivcrly, who had been leading a rather fast life at tho univorsity.rcturned to his native town. Old Naeo was on hand to carry his trunk. Ho spit on his hands, and, remarking "Jess watch mo yank dat ar trunk on my shoulder," ho leaned over, seized-tho handles, and made a mighty eflbrt. Next moment he was standing on his head with his feet n tho air, and tho trunk was lying somo distance off wido open. There was nothing in it but a tooth-brush and a pappr collar.

A mother-mouse, when her children had nearly reached tho ago at which it became timo for them to seek their .own fortunes in tho world, cautioned them particularly against tho traps and dan gers that would Ho in their paths. "My children," said she, "the cheese looks very tempting, and is even sometimes toasted, but bowaro of it; for it will bring misfortuno to you." Ono timo tho whole family of younger mice camo upon a trap. "This, I sup poso." said tho eldest and wisest, "is tho trap against which our mother so carefully warned us. And yet" ho continued, "the cheese looks very tempt ing. I doubt extremely if there be any real danger in it And oven if there be, I think that by a proper amount of self-control nnd wanness, ono might avoid all ill consequences. Because somo have been caught it does not nec essarily follow that a liko fate must overtako all. At least I shall inspect tho trap to satisfy myself whether there is really as much danger in it as our mother said. Yon know she is apt to bo over-cautious very often." And with this remark, in spite of the urgent warnings of his brothers, the over-wiso mouse deliberately entered tho trap. "I cannot sec," said he, when ho was within, "that there is any real danger, and it is very pleasant here. Ono need not eat of tho cheese, yod know." v But even as ho spoke the delicious smell of tho cheese overcame his cau tion; ho concluded there could bo no dangor in taking tho smallest nibble.. No sooner, however, had ho touched tho tempting morsel, than tho trap fell and he was a prisoner. "Alas!" saia ho to his weeping moth er, who had hastened to the trap upon learning tho fato of her son, "I now discover, when it is too lato to repent, that the experience of age is safer than the presumptuous wisdom of youth." Christmas St. Nicholas. Empress Josephine's Last Days. There is something very touching in the account of tho meeting between tho husband and wife at Fontaincbleau after tho return of Napoleon from his Aus trian campaign. Josephine well knew that tho Emperor had irrevocably de cided upon the divorce, vet womanlike, she called in tho aid of her charms and fascinations once more, ns though to strivo to win back the spouso who was about to repudiate her. At dinner that day she appeared in a .very elegant and singularly becoming toilet a polonaise in white satin trimmed with swans down, whilo in her hair were placed clusters of corn-flowers intermingled with silver wheat Never had she look ed more charming or shown herself moro winning, and the Emperor, who was morose and silent at the commence ment of tho dinner, regained liis spirit and made himself agreeable. .But that evening ho avoided Josephine in a man ner that gavo her to understand that all was indeed at 841 end between them, and that their formal separation was only a question o, time. A few months later Josephine mado her last appear anco in public as Empress of Franco at a feto given by Berthicr, Prince Do Wagram, at the Chateau do Qrosbois. A curious contretemps marked tho end of this festivity. Ono of tho diversions of tho evening was a comedy in which Brunct the favorite comedian of tho day, sustained tho principal part This little piece was tho well-known play of "Cadet Rousscl." Unfortunately jt con tains numerous allusions to divorce, and ono can easily imagine tho embarrass ment of tho host and tho spectators when Cadet Roiissel declares that ho means to get a divorco "to have somo nnccstors, nnd afterwards remarks; "I know what kind of a wifo I have now, and I do not know what sort of a one I shall take." Napoleon sat glowering at tho stago in evident ill-humor. As to tho Empress, sho could with, difficulty restrain her tears. Four days later Josephine took her departure from tho Tuilerics forever. m m Concerning Names. Tho fact is, scarcely any nuisance is a greater nuisance than that pertaining to ill-assorted names. Why, for in stance, with our beautiful and musical Indian nomenclature, should wo have our Syracuse, Memphis, Thebes, Toledo, St. Louis, San Francisco, Cairo, Baby lon, Jerusalem? What an uneuphoni ous, ill-assorted namo is New York when we can have Manhattan for tho taking! Why should racing mares bo named Miss Woodford and Flora Tem ple? or an Indian Hole-in-the-Wall, Man-Afraid-of-IIis-Horse, etc.? Why should a harmony composed for a reli gious hymn be named Federal street and another Bowdoin square? Why should two of our gunboats be called Terror and Vixen? Why should so many names of hamlets, villages, towns and cities bo repeated in thirty-eight states and seven territories, and give riso to innumerable Washingtons, Jack sonvillcs, Jellersons, Adamses, and so on?
