The Arizona Democracy is the pride of the Mormon's. Yitma will evidentlyjbe one of the lead ing counties of Arizona. There are ii3'farmers in the Connecti cut legislature. r, There is a newspaper in Dftkoia for every 1,200 population. ., . .1 Blue birds and robins have appeared in Midland Park,N.:J. Hot house strawberries are selling in Boston at 30 cents each. It looks as though the County Courts would have to Walk the gang plank. If Zulick doilfpown and control the legislature, who he.d--l does? ;' 'i J. H. White suprintendent of the Con tention mine arrived from California yes terday. The Nevada Legislature has passed a resolution prohibiting Mormons from voting. The inhabitants of Benson are confi dent of the ultimate success of their handsome little town. Our genial little city circulator, Nick Costello, is confined to his home by sick niss. H. Ohnick of Phenix who recently er ected a gas works in that thriving city, arrived in the city last evening. What will the Tombstone militia do now in a case of emergency, with Col. Chatham in Nogales, and General Sher man knocked out of office? Truly this legislature is kicking up the dust! A couple of aspiring republican county officials wint an "organ," Oh, my! how badly they do want it. Probably a little soothing syrup would answer the purpose. Try it. A Berlin paper says it has authentic information that General i Boulanger, the French minister of war, is for for a movement of troops to the eastern fron tier. At a fire in a livery stable at St. Louis. Wednesday night several firmen and spectators were buried by falling walls, and over one Jhundered horses were burned to death. ' The Epitaph compares favorebly with its territorial contemporaries, and no la bor or expense will be spared to make it the leading journal of Arizona. The Common Council of Los Angeles has dropped the prefix "common." Evi dently the members thought the word too awfully suggestive of their calibre. Hailing from a state that couldn't pos sibly be reached by naval shot or shell, John James Ingalls thirsts for blood with ft mighty B. Mrs. Laura Short of Nevada, adver tises in this issue of the Epitaph for two men. We know where there is one mighty captivating cuss who is not averse to being hunted up provided Laura could manage to be comforted with one sizea ble individual. He is not the proprietor of the Red Store, cither. OM 3cn VtTado. When old Hen Wade was Circuit Judge in Ohio, one of his decisions was reversed by the Supreme Court of the State, and the case came back lo him on mandate. He disregarded the mandate and fallowed his own decision. "But your honor," exclaimed the beaten coun sel, "the Supreme Court reversed jour former judgment!" "Yes, so 1 have heard," was the reply. "I will give them a chance to ;?: right." The decision was again reviewed, this time with Judge Wade's written opinion, and the court decided that lie was right. A bill .of costs had been before him for tluee terms and had been discussed at inordi nate length. As he was about closing the third term the attorney in the case reminded him that the matter had not been disposed of. "What is the amount in dispute?" asked Judge Wade. "Nine dollars and cents." "I'll piy the d d thing myself," said he, throwing a ten-dollar bill to the clerk. "Enter the costs satisfied." During the impeach ment trial theic was delay in opening the proceedings one morning because the Chief Justice's black robe of office had been mislaid. The pages, the few visitors present in the robing room, and Mr. Chase himse'f joined in the search. The case was grave. The court could not go on. At the last moment Wade, who had grimly observed the scene, saw something black under some other thing, and lunging it with his cane, fished out the delinquent black samite, which he irreverently held out at cane's end with, "Here Chae, here's your d d old gown." It is said that the Chief Justice was more dignified than usual all that day." Jlorida Aitesian Well. An artesian well is boiing in St. Aug- uslino, Floiidt. The well which is twelve feet in diameter, is said to be the largest artesian wt.ll in the world, and by actual measurement flows at the rate of 7,c:o,- oco gallons a day. The hole is now 760 feet below the surface and is deepening every day. The old fashioned opinion that Floriday was a coral reef, has of late years been vigorously disputed. The boring of this well proves that an immense depth of coral underlies the State. Sam ples cf the material have been saved at ctxry stage of the bnrirg, Another in teresting fact is that, the deeper the well Is drilled, the higher the temperature of the water becomes. It is now about So degrees Fahreuhe.t. Alaniaden-Riohest Quicksilver Mine. In eight months of 1S86, the AUmaden mine, Spain produced 51,199 flasks of quicksilver, which is 21,218 flasks more than were produced by all the quicksilver mines in the United States in the whole ytar. In the month of Februry the high est limit was reached, 7,668 flasks, and iu no month did the production fall below 2368 flasks. We give the details: Jan uary, 6465; February 7679: March 7395; April 7184; May 5737; October 2568: November 6566; December 7627. The value of this product at Vj, or say $35 per flask was5i,Soo,ooo. The Montana miners who recently seized a New York capitalist and held him a prisoner in the mountains until he arranged for the payment of their wages had several precedents for their perform ance. A few years ago, when a bank failed in a frontier Kansas town, the peo ple held the cashier until he was ran somed by his friends, the alternative be ing death at the end of a rope. Where this kind of law is administered the chances are that every man will come to his own sooner or later, generally sooner. Several wild bulls broke lovse in the City of Mexico Wednesday, while being driven through the city, and killed a number of persons. The bulls were of the famous Atcnco breed, and were to be used in the coming bull-fight. Two of them entered the courtyard of the na tional palace and were shot down by the soldiers. The affair created much ex citement. The Gate City Guard, of Atlanta, are happy. The King of Belgium and the President ol France have signified their willingness to permit this crack military company to march through their do mains, armed and equipped, resplendent in gorgeous uniform and terrible in the glitter of warlike arms. It has been ex plained that they do not go abroad to fight or paralyze Europe. A vote recently taken in the Michigan Senate gave Cleveland five votes for President in 1888, and David Hill, of New York, one. The canvass in the Assembly gave Clevcl-uid fifteen and Hill five six in all for Hill. A pretty good start so far away from home, and if Dave can only find time to visit a few country fairs this winter he will manage to be a bothersome fellow. EPITAPH OULLINGS. Queen Margarita of Italy has a strung perfcrence for women physicians. Old Dan Rice is living in Cincinnati in private leisuie, varied by aii occasion al spree. Last Sunday Rev. Dr. Talmage re ceived 341 new members into his church in Brooklyn. Japanese judges wear a black gown when proceeding in civil cases and a red one in criminal cases. at her Long Branch house and lets the servant stand by and look at her. In attempting to enter the canal at Mcnasa, Wis'., a 140 pound sturgeon grounded on a sandbar and was cap tured. The Comte dc Paris is winning renown in England, not as a statesman or author but as one of the most graceful skaters in London. General Grants uncle, Samuel Simpson is dying at his home near Bantum, Cler mont county IN. v.. He is ninety-two years old. Oakley Hall, formerly Mayor of New York, has become a naturalized English subject, He says he never expects to see America again. The jam of freight in New York no longer exists. Steamers are leaving on time, and the strike is thought to be a failure. Bartholdi has written a letter to Sena tor Evarts in which he says that the Statue of Liberty will last as long as any Egyptian monument. J. J. Johnson who was seriously woun ded while helping bear Stonewall Jackson off the field of Chaneellorsville, is still living at Fluvana Va. Prince Louis Fculinand of Bavasia, husband of the Infanta Paz, sister of the late King of Sgain, is an expert in sur gery. He charges nothing for his ser vices. The streams penetrating the Gegobic iron range near the south -horc of Lake Supenorarc so black with discoloratio:. iromtneoie, mat itsa rannnt live in them. Mr. Whittier's deaih is b;ing hastened by the insatiate horde of autograph fiends and ambitious poels who send their manuscripts to be reviewed by the kind hearted bard. Frank James, Missoun's illustrious Knight of the Road, has accepted em ployment, as salesman in a St. Louis la dies' shoe store. And now every woman in St. Louis buys her shoes at thai stole, and the proprietors are rpidly becoming millionaires. Mrs. Langtry was ostracized by the English court for slipping a piece of ice down the Prince of Wales' back. She might have expected that after such an operation the royal family would be cold er than ever. It is charged that Nevada's new gov ernor, Stevenson, gobbled the message of Governor Foraker, of Ohio, and deliv eied it in bulk to the assembled states men of Nevada as his own. The Tucson Salvation Army are about to profit by the advice of the Epitaph and make a raid upon this neck of the woods. We will wager a trifle that our good-looking neighbor of the Democrat will fall a victim to their wilc.i, especially to the feminine portion of the exhortcrs. There is said to be a movement on foot to abolish the Territorial University. The next thing in point will be the abol ishment of the Legislature. A motion to this effect is now in order and it will meet with a hearty second in this sec tion. Luke Short, who is well known in Tombstone, having had a little experience in the blood letting business here, killed a desperado at Fort Worth a few days since, by the name of Jim Courtright, who, it is claimed, had killed fourteen men during his caicer. His many en counters would fill a book. There is a wild rumor in Tombstone that Hughes, of the Star, had joi.icd the Salvation corps. It lacks confirmation, however. But Brother Hughes always did have a leaning in that-direction, and this sudden inpulsivc dcsiie of his to be come an angel is not at all surprising, if true. Wendolin Moll, living near 'Boulder, Col,, knocked his young wife down and shot her in the shoulder because of the birth of a babe. He then left them alone in the house. The child died fron. cold and hunger, and the mother cannot recover. Officers and a oosse of citi zens arc after Moll. Dan. and Josie Sullivan, who have entertained our citiotis with their de lightful performances for tin- last two evenings, will take tluir departure to-day for Tucson, "Isn't that an .vvl'ul shame." Mr. Stumpf, formerly proprietor of the American Bakery, left with his family vosterday for his old home in Missouri. The warlike tone of Congress towards Canada is commendable. 5ut they had better not fire off their guns until they are loaded. The proprietor of the new bank are trying to make arrangements to obl.iin the old SalTord it Hudson building in which lo locate their business. Bills for the admission of three Terri tories are pending in Congress. Besides Dakota, an old claimant, Montana and Washington desire to be recognized as states. Notwithstanding Governor Bartlett's declaration against extra sessions there is a strong probability that he will con vene the Legislature to specially act upon the San Francisco charter. Not even the probability of a European conflict nor the terrific western storms can prevent the New Jersey legislature from balloting right along for a United States senator. An eminent physician advises scrawny girls to go to bed regularly at 9 o'clock every night for six months. He declares that if this course be pursued they will take on flesh rapidly. But, at all events, it will give the pretty girls a chance at the men, A Popular Science Monthly writer says monkeys have conversation. This can not be gainsaid, as right here in Tomb stone we could mention several chatter ing monkeys, some of which were leaders in the late anti-Chinese fizxle. It seems as though the combination at Prescott had failed to interview the gov ernor, hence the disaster to the. county courts. The Epitahh will give Govern or Zulick credit of being one of the brightest men in the territory. An employe of the Union Iron Works, San Francisco, who had been missing for ,1 week, was found in one of the large ovens baked and burned beyond recog nition. He is bupp'icd to have crawled in to warm himself and to have fallen asleep and been suffocated. Judge Reagan will be the only farmer in the Senate, he liws on an old farm near Palestine Texas, which is so sandy that Scarcely anything can be giown up on it. He is seventy yeaisold and is yet a hale hearty man. Parish's "Fourteenth" performed a good act when they abolished our militia general-in-chicf, also the bill placing poll t.ix at four dollars instead of two. We will give Tom credit when his boys de serve it, Tombstone's dearth of amusement bids fair to be relieved by a match game of baseball, it being stated on authority that a challenge will be s"nt to the Huachuca nine to play here on Washington's biith day, Feb. 22. Rhode Island is a Prohibition state, and that is why the Legislature thereof is investigating a few of its members who went to Newport the other day and got drunk. Whisky and the men to drink it always seem to meet in bicger Prohi bition states than Rhode Island. East of the mountains nearly fifty millions of people ate watching for a sag in the backbone of winter, while in this blessed land the spinal column of spring is arched like the back of a black cat singing base in a garden-wall concert.

The beginning of disease is a slight debility or disorder of some of the vital organs, the stomach, the liver or the bow els usually. Thereare despeptic sympt oms, the liver is troublesome, the skin grows tawney and unhealthy looking, there are pains in the right side or through the right shoulder blade. The climax is often an utter prostration of the phvsical energies, perhaps a fatal issue. Bm it the difficulty is met in time with Hosteller's Stomach -Bitters, which is al ways effective as a remedy, and it should be re-sotted to at an early stage, there will be no reason to apprehend those in jurious subsequent effects upon the sys tem often entailed by entirely cured dis eases. Far better is it, also, to employ this safe remedial agent in fever and ague ami other malarial complaints, than qui nine and other potent drugs, which even when they do prove effectual for a time, ruin the stomach and impair the general health.
