Benso.V, Ariz., April 13, 1887. Ed. Epitaph: There has nothing new transpired since your last letter from this point of much csonsequence. Our little town is enlivened occasionally by a law suit which breaks the monotiny of the hum drum life here. A San Pedro ranch cher and a mexican cattleman had a law suit l-:re a few days since over a water right, and it was one of the most laugh able and ridiculous trials ever witnessed in southern Arizona, if not in the west. The Mexican who was the defendant in the case, if it can be dignified by that title, demanded a jury trial, and the court not desiring to assume any dictorial airs permitted it, and six of Bensons "Solons" (we will call them this for this time), sit upon the case with all of the dignity of an ancient Archimagus and strange to re late was convinced by the sophistry of T. J. White, that the course of the San Pedro river was up hill and furthermore that water frequently flowed up hill. Not withstanding that the law was all on the side of the American. Upon this as tounding testimony, this inteligent six gave the case to the Mexican. Ancient Greece was noted for its wise men and eminent lawgivers, but it remained for the combined wisdom of Benson states men to send along the glimmering shades of the hereafter, the startlipg ''fact" that the turbulent waters of the the San Ped ro river, are at war with natures establish ed laws of gravitation, Rspectfully, "One of 'km." A Pertinent Inquiry West Huachuca, April 12, 1887. Ed. Epitap: The object of this com munication is to inquire if a mail route cannot be established between Tomb stone and Ochoaville. We are 45 miles from Tombstone and 15 from Ochoavil'e, near the Sonora line, we have been here for years, we have watched our herds, paid our taxes, fought Indians, chased horse thieves and have performed some -Ur IpjiSS-!-T sf -the" VJ "".SS.gJ that are done in frontier life, one of which is going 45 miles for our mail once a month. The Czar of Russia might be assassinated, France and Ger many lock horns, Charleston sunk by an earthquake, our own government may be fighting the Kanucks over the fishery question and need our help, and we know nothing about it. There are a large number of American settlers on both sides of the line, that would be greatly accomodated by this mail route, we could of course, save ten miles by get ting our mail at Charleston, but the mail at that point is irregular and always be hind time, and when we have so far to go for mail we want to know if we got it all. The postal department undoubtedly have to much to think of, to pay much attention to the wants of a few frontier men, but there is one consideration that should be taken in to account, and that is, do we pay o'ur taxes enough to entitle us to any of the benefits of the govern ment. Stockman. Preparing For an Emergenoy. She hid selected the biggest trank in an uptown salesroom, and when the clerk asked her if it was for the seashore, she replied: "That depends."

If it goes down we'll want this trunk to go to keep ing house in, out West." Wall Street News. Delighted to Take Anythin g A gentlemen at a dinner party turned a very pretty compliment when his com panion remarked: "I don't know Mr Walters whether you are at all afraid of measles, but my little children have them and I have been suffering from a slight attack." The gentleman rose 10 the occasion. "Madam," he said, "I should beonly teo delighted to take anything from so charming a source." Chicago Led ger. Great excite prevails at Guaymas, over the expectation that the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe will build a railroad branch to the coal fields at San Marcial, Barranca and Los Sronces, lying from 50 to 100 miles east of Ortiz station of the Sonora railroad. It is said that the coal is very goad and that the coal fields are very extensive. Should this be con firmed by experts sent to the field, Sonora railway traffic would be in creased considerably, and Guaymas would become a great commercial port. The venerable Captain Bassett who was appointed page at the request of Daniel Webster and who has been in the employ of the United States Senate for fifty years is busy at present writing his reminiscences. Farmer Keith of Rnnnels County Tex. is noted for his big beard.

A capricious appetite, heartburn puzzeling nervous symptoms, increased action of the heart after eating, sinking in the abdomen between meals, and flat ulence after, are among the successive indica of this harrassing complaint. Two things are needful in its removal. A re sort to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, and persistence in its use. These remedial measures being adopted a cure is certain Takon immediately before or after meals this stomachic promotes secretion of the gastric juice, the natural solvent of the food. The nervous and billious sympt oms consequent upon chronic indigestion disappear, as the complaint gradually yeilds to the corrective and invigorating influence of the Bitters. Appetite returns sleep becomes more refreshing and as a sqeuence, the body is efficiently nourish ed, muscular power increases, and the mind grows sanguine. Use the Bitters for chills and fever, and the rheumatism. J. MYERS & BRO., OOR.
