Bowen, the well known Tombstone chiropodist, has located in the flourisiiing town of San Diego. The Fourteenth, wilj be a. well 'ctis ied"body of individuals, if they succeed in passing the fee bill. Dont fail to attend the special meetng of Cochise Lodge I. O. O. F. this eve ning, as a full attendance is desired. he Fourteenth Legislature, is a thing of the past so is Tom Fatish and the office ol Commissioner of Immigration. The Cochise delegation will return to their homes at onse. Mr. Blinn will tary a day or two in Phenix en routciur Tombstone. The eagle eye of our police has been so efficient in the pursoit of that human evil, the tramp, that it his rid Tombstone of every last one of them. Densmore and Burrcll, accused cf dynamiting Mercers store out of existance at Tnbac, were examined in Tucson, and discharged. Frank Bulardo returned yesterday from Volcano city, at which place he is doin business. Frank reports everything looks favorable for a good permanent mining camp at the Volcano district. Thomas Dunbar, of Ires Alamos, is .visiting Tombstone on a business trip. The Epitaph is always glad to greet our worthy brother, whose only fault is his .democracy, Frank Dcatherige, of the Democrat, .returned last evening from Nogah s, at which place he has been in the interest of his paper. Mr. Deatherige report Nogales as quite a thriving little com munity. The blacksmith shop of the Vuina Mining Company, at the foot of Fourth street, burned down yesterday. The fire companies were promptly en hand and did effective service, for so small a fire. Loss about Sico. Three burglars broke into the house of Rev. Father McEnrue, of Freeprot, Pa, the other night, and the plucky priest knocked one down, and is ths others ran shot at then them with his revolver. All escaped apparently unharmed. In the college slang of Princeton a perfect recitation is called a" tear," of Harvard a" squirt of Bowdoin a'1 s lil" ot Williams a " rake," of Hamilton .V'blood, and of Amherst a" cold rush." Failures are called "slumps." " stumps," Flunks" ndsmashes."J It appears that Professor Wiggins pre dicted the Italian etrthquake as long ago 1 last September. H locatod it in the Southern States and named a day in October, but a slight discrepancies of three or four thousand miles in distance or of six months in time do not figure much in his calculations. Senator Fair, of Nevada, during his six yeirs' term has not said enough in the Senate chamber to fill a page of the Con gressional Record. Strangely enough his successor, ex-Senator Stewart, was during his former strv'ca as a legislator, one of the most loquacious membes the United States Senate ever had. He Gome to Stay. A dashing young Tucson merchant, who, bv the wav, is very fond of a neighboring merchani'3 wife.drpveup his spanking deliver) te.im to the door of the house of his friendTor the purpose of de- . . i-.i . i livtnni; 'Olllt neeucu grurenci vu wc fa. familv. As the insinuating young gro- eery mn entered the husband quietly iibdre, lhi.iking he wo'dd like to learn how mu ') time hU fneud would ton-ume on his business errand. The merchar.t waited p.itit ntly fr upwards f '.v half hour Another half hour sl.pp d away and Mill the horse siood guard at the door of the waiting husband. Afier three hours had elapsed he concluded that his friend h.id come to stay, conse quently he approached the horse and un harnessed him from the wagon, and leading him to the nearest stable erdered him put up and cared for during the night. Soon the swain emerged from the premises, and jude of his astonish ment at finding the horse had disap peared. Why, d n the old fool, he muttered, "he has gone away and left me before, but this is the first time that he ever unharnessed himself." The rrer chant left the premises, swearing that if that family ever wanted groceries from him they would come to his business house. Sale of Smuggler' Proporty. A street sale of a condemned, confis cated smugglers' outfit took place yester day in front of the United States Cus tom House in Tombstone. The proper ty for sale were animals seized by U. S. officers, who caught one Jesus, near La Noria, trying to smuggle contraband goods, principally mescal, over the line. Three burros and one horse were sold. The burros were knocked down to the highest bidder for the insignicant sum of $s, $8.2; and $10 each. The horse only brougt $9. Mr. V. C. Wilson, the Custom House officer, was much dis gusted at the low price the animals brought. They were worth much more than sold for. All goods or property of a smuggled character is kept for a term of eight days, and if no legal action is instituted to recover the same, the U. S. laws .require it to be sold at public auc tion. A Oat Story. A tremendous commotion has been -.wed 111 Philadelphia by a lawsuit be 'een two wealthy fanvlies growing out of a dispute as to a tat. One fa-nily as fond of cats and the other detested ihcm. The family which doted on tabby had a choice mouaer, and one day not long ag, as he was promenading in the back yard, a member of the other familj oho! him deid. First there were arrests for disorderly conduct, trespass, etc., and ow both sides have damage suits pend ng. For the information of Western people it may be explained that old cats cut more of a figure in Eastern society than they do anywhere else on this con tinent. No Doubt About That. General Lord WoUeley asserts that General Lee would have captured Wash ington after the first battle of Hull Run if he had not been controlled by the politi cal leaders of the Confederacy.' Such a claim is questionable, to say the least; but there can be no doubt whatever that El Mahdi would have captured General Lord WoUslcy in Egypt if the latter had not been controlled by a piir of legs 4'hich took him out of the coun'ry with a rapidity never surpassed in the annals ol rnil.tay rearward movements. A Mayor of tie Bight Kind. It u impossible not to admire the pluck of the Mayor of Nice, who undertook to restore the confidence of the frightened people by giving his official assuranct immediately after the earthquake tha the worst was over and that they had nothing to fear. A Mayor who can guarantee a city against an earthquake shock is a Mayor worth having. The most extravagant stories of the heroism of ths Prince of Wales, who was in the earthquake rcigon at the time of the shake, are told In England, where the people shed tears of joy. Albert Edward was in bed when the shock came and valicntly refused to move. Entrea ties were in vain. The walls trembled, but he closed his eyes and bade his friends depart. No oae but a prince of blood or, a bloody prince who had been up hte the night before, could have shown such nerve. With fifty- five feet of water in the Ohio River and hall of the inhabitants of Cincinnati living on the roofs of their houses, it is in order for the genial M. Hahtend to remark again that the Pro hibiponists arc "white bellied skunks, sc-king to destroy the country and restort Jot? Davis' Confederacy. EPITAPH GULLI1IGS.

John Harrigan and his rope have be come famous in San Francisco. With the same piece of rope he has pulled twenty-eight people out of the water in the last three years. Theodora Thomas walks ten miles every day and the Boston Herald thinks that this gives his legs about the same amount of exercise that overture gives his arms. John Whittaker, the colored cadet, who was charged some years ago with mutilat ing his own ears whiie at West Point, is now a member of a successful law firm in Chsrleston, S. C. It is said in Washington that General Viele, of New York, will probably be sent as minister 10 .Turkcv, and that Generrt Lawton will receive the mission to Austria. Congressman J. Thomas Sprigs is quoted as saying thit before July tst, President, Cleveland will leave,a letter in the hands of the 'National Demcratic Committee declining to be a candidate for re-election. Edward DeLong, a nephew of Gen. Beauregard, and a son of the late Gov. DeLong, of Nebraska, turned up in Louisville recently a total wreck in health and fortuncar.J wild with delirium tremens.

The body of Frederick Morris, who claimedjto be a brother of Clara Morris, the actress, who (ell into the river at Huntington, Pa., last Saturday while in a state of intoxication, has been recover ed and identified. He had lived for years under an assumed name because of his dissolute habits. AttectiouLO. 0-F. There will be a special meeting of Co chise Lodge, I. O. O. F., at 7:30 this evening.

He is one of the foremost men of the Territory, a deserv ing, popular ger.Mcman, r.nd the EPI TAPH bids him welcome to nur city. Oik stster county, Pima, like Tomb stoiii , seems to have prospects ahead. The San Xavier mines are impioving right along; they arc about twenty miles south of Tucson.

Probably as much misery comes from habitual constipation as from any de rangement of the functions of the body, and it is difficult to cure, for the reason that no one likes to take the medicines usually prescribed. HAMBURG FIGS were prepared to obviate this difficulty, and they will be found pleasant to the taste of women and children, a; cents. At all druggists. T. Mack Co , pro prietors, S. F i Notice.

With every advance of emigration in to the Far West, a new demand is cre ated for Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. Newly peopled regions are frequently less salubrious than older settled locali ties, on account of the miasma which rises from recently cleared land, particu larly along the banks of rivers that are subject to freshtts. The agricultural or mining emigrant soon learns, when he does not already know, that the Bitters afford the only sure protection against malaria, and these disorders of the stom ach, liver and bowels, to which climate changes, exposure, and unaccustomed or unhealthy water or diet subject him. Consequently, he places an estimate up on this great household specific and pre ventive commensurate with its intrinsic merits, and is careful to keep on hand a restorative and promoter of health so im plicitly to be relied upon in time of need. A cold may be a dangerous thing or not, depending upon the means at hand to combat it. It is a wise precaution to provide against emergencies that are liable to arise in every family.
