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

house of his friendTor the purpose of de-

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.

The Western Settler's Ohosen Specific.
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. In sud
den attacks of cold, group, asthma, etc.,
Ayer's Cheiry Pectoral w.ll ptote tho
