S- Abbott, reports stock as being in prime condition in the Sulpher Springs Valley. E. L. James, a well known Arizona Deputy Custom Collector, was murdered in Grorgia recently. The New Mexico Legislature passed a law that all will approve train wreckers to be punished by death. Wm. McComas, assayer of the Copper King mines of the Cannaneas Mexico, is in the city on business. The owner of a vineyard near Liver more, Cal., has thirty-four cats who keep the rabbits and gophers in subjection. The mining outlook for Arizona and New Mexico for the coming year is very promising. The Deming sampling works have shut down, and will not resume opera tions until it ran take advantage of the Interstate Commerce law. A number of prospectors have come in lately, and some that were going out hare not gone. -We opine that there is a little Indian scare in the air. The Milles City Journal givss currency to a rumor that a band of sheep recently snowed in survived two weeks and grew fat feeding on one anothers fleece. In a great storm of snow and sleet re cently! in England the wings of rooks froze fast to their bodies, and hundreds f the birds wers killed by falling trees, being unable to fly. B. S. Brown will leave to-day for Kan sas. He will purchase an entire outfit fer 1U new livery stable, which he will open ia about three weeks on the cornev of , Sixth and Allen streets. Wm. Clancy, .1 well known Tombstone man and ex-policeman, has returned after prospecting at Stein's Peak and elsewhere fer several months past. ' John Gird, arrived last evening from Sonera. Mr. Gird, lives a few miles from " the scene of the reported Duncan murder but had received no.inteligence of the affair until his arrival in Tombstone. Police Officer Weiser carries his arm In a sling, the result of being vaccinated. Charley thinks that a fellow might as well have the small-pox and be done with it, as to be laid up from vaccination. J. B. Miano and James Coyle, iwo of Tombstone's good citizens, arrived in Tembstone yesterday. They are both interested in Volcano City and speak in praise at the district. Charles N. Uuffett, who has been kee ping books at the Altar mine in New Mexico, for the past six months, has re turned to Tombstone, tired of the fri jole chili and mayana. The Covernor of Iowa has issued a a proclamation forbidding the importa tion of cattle froth Illinois except under stringent regulations. Cattle kept within the last twelve months in 'Cook county are absolutely prohibited. Stock is suffering now for water as well as grass and many are dying in Frio county, Texas. If the drouth continues another month it will be utter destruction to many engaged in that bus la wj. Roportod Double Murder. , The surtltng imeilUenc: brought , to townSund.iy night thr-iui .1 telegram received at Sheriff SUu,;hter'i office that the Duncin brothers had bith been killed at their ranch in the West Hua chuca mountains, whereupon ex-Sheriff Hatch, C. D. Reppy, Harry Quigley and Coroner Koska at onco started fer the scene of the murder. From what Mea gre information the EriTAPH can get, it would appear that the deed was com mitted as far back as last Thurs day, and that too -for revenge, by, it is supposed, Mexicans, who arc reputed to be desperate horse-thieves, one of whom was lynched some three years' since, and in which it was charged that the Duncan boys took a hand. In connection with this hanging Mr. and Mrs. Fritz, Rafferty and Raymond are also alleged to have tasea a part in the judge lynch busiaess, and a time afterward, they were all four discovered murdered. It was thought that the deed was done by the Duncans, who were arrested, and after a number of moaths' incarceration set free for want of evidence. If this be true, however, it now looks as if all six murders had been perpetrated by the same band of Mexicans and that the imputation and suspicion resting on them of complicity in the four murders abevementianed was without foundation. The Duncan bre thers were partners with our well known fellow citizen, C. D. Reppy, ia the ranch ing and cattle business. The location of the murder is one of the most lonesome and secluded in the Huachucas, and being only four miles from the Mexican line it afforded every oppartunity for the evil disposed to accomplish their hellish designs. Volcano Oity. From James Coyle whs returned from Volcano City yesterday, an Epitaph re porter learned that the mines in that sec tion looked remarkably well, and all arc hopeful of a business revival in a few months. The mines are retaining their richness and size as they ge down. The Volcano has a shaft of ene hundred feet in depth, besides many feet of drifts. The south drift is, at present, one hun dred feet, and all in good ore, and gets better as work proceeds. The Joha Smith, is also showing up well; the ledge is nine feet in width, and the ore assays well. The Carlisle district, at present is attracting much attention, and consid erable many of the floating populatien from Volcano is being attracted to that place. The Beck is going right along, and it is said that several more men will be put to work on that mine ere leng. All in all, Mr. Coyle thinks that the fu ture of the Volcano district is promising. It is an unquestionable fact, that what is needed is capital, and when this need ful commodity finds its way to this dis trict the surrounding country will rapidly come to the front. The Epitaph has an abiding faith in that camp, and we leok for a boom at an early day. Whilst our interest is only general, but a pres perous mining district adjacent to our borders, will assist our county and Ter ritory on its onward march of pregress Arizona vs. Nevada. An ambitious statesman in the sage brush state made an effort te write bio graphical sketches of the Nevada Legis lature during the late session, but upon approaching the incorruptable law mak ers of Nevada for shekels whereby to accomplish his worthy object, judge of his surprise and disgust when the highest contribution offered was fifty cents, four fifths of the the menagerie giving as an excuse for not being more liberal that Stewart, the newly-elected Senator from that State, had not yet paid them for their votes. The writer left in disgust. The Arizona Fourteenth was a decided improvement upon that miserly body even though they had the measles and several other unmentionable disea ses. They generously donated to our em inent fellow townsman, H. J. Brawlcy, as high as one dollar and six bits for "puffs" of extreme length, and question able accuracy. Oomo To Stay. Mrs. J. Pascholy, from Cork, Ireland, and Miss Cora P. Hogan, from London, England, are registered at the Occiden tal hotel. These.ladies are late arrivals from across the ocean, and seem to be very favorably impressed with Tomb stone and its surroundings, so much so, that one of them at least have concluded to remain in this city for a time. The failure ol the old sed to obtain home rule for her people is evidently the cause for their seeking a home in the sunny clime of Arizona. Tombstone has many charms, and charming people, the least of whom is not the genial proprietor of the Occidental. I a Eanch Sale. M. E. lovce arrived in Tombstone recently for the purpose of inspecting his ranch and rattle, which h located in the Swisshclm mountains. Mr, Joyce had two partners in the business, Messrs. J. J. Patten and Frank Leslie. After visit ing he cencluded to purchase the inter est of Mr. Patton, and a bargain was made en the spot, Joyce paying Pitton $3,000 for his interest. Mr. Joyce, who is a very successful business man, will place at onco on the place 400 additional cows, which will place him up among the heavy cattle men ef Cochise county. This ceunly is rapidly coming to the front as tho leading cattle county of Ari zona, and its claims are based upon the fact loag since established that it has more acres ef valleys and mesa grass than aay other section of our Territory. Our winters are mild and the water sup ply is aeuadant, all of which tends to make Cochise county the leading cattle county ot Arizsna. County Eocords.

London papers tell of a spaniel which saved the life of a cat. The owner of both decided te drown the cat, and threw it into the river. The dog rescued tabby and the maa threw her in again. This timo the spaaiel teok the cat to the other shore. Deer are abundant in Calaveras county Cal. A herd or twenty-six came down to a settler's cabin the other day, and he shot five of them without going twenty feet from the door, two miners on snow shoes, going through the woods, came up on a fine doe and ran her down in the deep snow. Jacob Smith, of Perrasville, Ky., miss ed his horse one day recently, and was highly inceased against the animal, which had a propensity for straying. Mr Smith was propitiated, however, when the horse returned after an absence of twelve hours, carrying in his moath a pocket book con taining $5. Henry Busch, while bottling at the Unien Soda Works yesterday met with a severe accident by having a bottle burst while filling it. The palm of the hand and fingers were badly cut by the explo ded fragments of the bottle. Dr. Fetter terraa dressed the hand, and thinks that Bosch may lose the use of one of his fingers. As Aaron True, ef Clarke, Canada, was going through the weods the other day, accowpaaied by his dog, which is part collie, part Newfoundland, he came suddenly upon a big gray wolf. The dog at oacc tackled the beast, and for half an hour the battle raged, but finally the dog got a throat hold and strangled the wolf. A year age Charles Johnson, of Griffin, Ga., bought a jet black kitten and gave it to his children for a pet. One day it dis appeared, and when Mr. Johnson found it, weeks afterwards, it had turned per rectly gray. The change in the color of the cat's fur is supposed to have been caused by grief at its separation from the children. An excursion train from New York and St. Louis, passed through Benson yesterday. This is opening the sea son early and indicates that an immense amount of tourests will visit this coast during the year, of which Los Angeles, will, for the present, have to content her self with the crumbs of the loaf, instead of the Lions share, of the tourest patro nage. A recent visitor to the Mammoth Cave looked up at the sides ei the great dome and asked the guide what the large black spots were. For answer he went to the nearest and tenderly took down a small bat. There were millions of them, all hanging by the feet, heads down, and in a comatose condition. They spend the winter hanging up here, and appear to prefer, as did the signers of the Declara tion, "to hang together," rather than "bang separately." Altiwugh in a state e-f coma they know enough when nut back in position to 'catch on." F.ir:y-nine yers ago the father of Harrison Gilbert, ofj Chili, III, Itought a two-year-old pony from the Indian;. When the warofth Rebellion begin the pony was twenty-five yeers oid, but Mr. Gilbert rode him rII through the war, and neither was hurt. The eld follow still lives, tenderly cared for. He hasen't a tooth in iiis head, lives on corn bread aad-bran mash, and is probably the eld est horse in America, if not In the world. A storm-driven partridge teok refnge on an apple tree just outside of the win dow of a sick woman in Unity, Me., sad the tender hearted invalid saw the tired bird and sent the hired man te sheet it. 1 Cure for sore throat' Rub the threat with Trappers Oil until red, and the bind with icd flannel In the mernmg j it is gone. 50 cts. per flask.

Probably as much misery comes free 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 medicine usually prescribed. HAMBURG FIGS were prepared to obviate this difficulty, and they will be found pleasant to tha nste of women and children. 25 cents. At all druggists. J. Mack & Ce, are prietors, S. F Notice.
