Much work is being done in the dif ferent mines in this district. The Kissane disclosures are causing a tremendous excitement in California, nnd desperate efforts are now being made to stop futther rxposure. It is a curious fact that Ireland with a population of nearly 5,000,000 has fewer criminals in prison than has Scot land with less than 4,000,000. Fifteen years ago David Hostetter was a peddler, now he is worth $t6,oco,oco. This is another example of advertising, as Mr. Hostetter owes his vist wealth to the press alnne. J. M. Bracewell has disposed of his Willcox Stockman to Mr. Hunsaker, the present manager. Mr, Hunsaker is aa able, conscientious journalist and has a host of friends in the county. John Keating had seven assays made from rock taken from the John Smith mine at Steins Peak and the seven aver aged $750 per ton. This is a wonderful showing and the property bids fair to be one of the best in the Territory. The Peak sisters were rehearsing last evening at Schieffelin Hall and judging from the sounds that emanated from the structure, it will be quite a treat for the fun loving commuuity. Don't fail to pur chase a ticket to-day. Assessor Chapman, has nta-ly completed the city assessment roll. Chap, is a faithful official and djes his work in shape If Tombstone had more men of the Chap mtn order, this city would be more pros perous to-day. The women of Kansas took such an active interest in the recent municipal elections that society finds it difficult to settle down, now that the contests are over. The fact taken in connection with the spring bonnet jealousies and heart aches will make the season a very anima ted one. Some genial liar, who claims to have been a resident of Tombstone in its early days, has given a San Jose paper an Account of the doings in this city at that time. For a romantic prevaricator commend us to the individual in ques tion. Nine hundred stove moulders in Cin cinnati, 500 in Louisville, and 700 in Pittsburg have struk because the proprie. tors ordered patterns of Bridge, Reach & Co , of St Louis, to be used. The use of these patterns was very limited, being confined in the Cincinnati factory to the making of four stoves doers a day. The Northern 'Pacific Rtilroad has consummated the sale of 200,000 acres of timber lands is the eastern part of Min nesota, northwest of Duluth. The exact sections have not been located yet, but the buyers will prob ibly notify the com pany ol their selection this week. The names of the buyers were not given, ,and the price paid is conditional on the amount of tlmfier. The advertisement of A. Bauer, of the Pioneer Meat Market, will appear in our next issue. Mr. Bauer is one of the best bu chers in this county, being thoroughly familiar with all parts of the trade. Mr. Bauer will make contracts with large consumers for any period ol time they may desire at reduced rates. Visit his market and you will be sure to be pleased with his splendid display of meats. Friday night of this week, is to be set apart by the lovers of fun, for attending the concert of the Peak Sisters, at Schief felin Hall. And we feel justified in pre diciing a genuine treat to all who have anything comic in their composition. The ballads and operatic airs will be ren dered with a spirit by "the gals" that will entranco the audience. The symph onies to be performed upon costly instu ments of rare construction, cannot fail to challenge the admiration of all those Vrh have any music In tbtir souls. Lowers an Pedro, April 20, 1887. Ed. Epitaph: I desire to inform you of a bold and dtstardly attempt at both, murder and robbery, which w.is made on our neighbor, Mr. W. H. Wheaton, on Monday night last. Mr. Wheaton, as ou kiiovy, lives thirty miles belo Tres Al.imos, on the San Pelio liver, at which pl.ice he has icsidcd for the past tweUe years; his life is a lonely one, as he is a man of solitude; here in his lonely domi cile., eredSSfl.y his "bun hands tiiany yean ago, in which he has made up his mind to spend the balance of his life. Mr. Wheaton is a native of the State of Maine, and an active, industrious man, 'and is thought by his neighbors to possess ,-cpnsidcrable wealth, hence the attempt to rob him. About 10 o'clock Monday night whilst Wheaton was sleeping, three Mexicans approached his house and shouted for him to come to the door, that they wanted water for a sick companion, whereupon the rancher opened the door to take the water. No sooner had he passed through the door to the outside, than he was grabbed by three stalwart Mexicans, and his eyes blindfolded and at once re turned to the house; at this juncture another Mexican appeared upon the scene. The four men took from his pockets what money he had on his per son, and demanded, at the point of a pistol, that he produce more, to which Mr. Wheaton replied that that was all he had in the world; the Mexicans became enraged at hU answer, and at once took from their saddle a long hair rope and placed it around the neck of the stalwart rancher, dragged him to a Cottonwood tree near by, and began to hoist him from the earth, evidently Mr. Wheaton became unconscious at once, and after a short period he was let down. Three of the robbers began searching the pre mises for plunder, while the fourth stood guard over the unconscious rancher. They succeeded in digging up $100. After threatening him with death if he ever mentioned the affair, they secured him to the bed stead and left the pre mises. Wheaton succeeded in unfasten ing the rawhide with which he was tied, and started out to give the alarm. The people here are very much ex cited over the affair, and to-day a meet ing of the citizens along the river was held, and it will be very unhealthy for strange or suspicious Mexicans to be fonnd in this neighborhood after this. Mr. Wheaton is at presen) in Tucson. This is about the only excite in this sec tion for several months. The cattle are looking quite well here, but twenty miles further down the river many are dying.

In Arkansas it costs fifty cents to call a man on a public telephone. Even at that exorbitant rate it is said 10 be cheap-. er than calling him on a full hand.

The great Pit or Kegent diamond has been reserved. Judge Eeilly's Client. Juan de Solo, Judge Reilly's client, was arrested yesterday at Contention by iiherift Slaughter and, and now lan guishes in the hostile. Sheriff Slaughter received a telegram from the Sheriff of Pima county yesterday, to arrest and hold de Soto on a charge of minder, and the Sheriff proceeded at once to Conten tion and procured the fellow. The Sheriff is of tho opinion that Reilly can try again to work the habeas corpus rucket. This man Juan de Soto made his brags after being released from cus tody that "Mr. Slaughter could not arrest him," but much to his discom fiture, he has learned that when Mr. Slaughter goes alter a man he usually gets his man, if it is possible to obtain him. Cochise county has competent officers, both Constables and Sheriff, and the men who endeavot to transgress the laws of our country, thinking that escape is possible through the laxiety of our officials, will be sadly mistaken. Arizona Fruit. The gardens of J. H. Tuitle present a very attractive appearance. There are several fhntiiressjwhich are literally load ed down with precious fruit. Particular ly so are several Apricot trees which are weighted Sown with,,the sweet burden of their delicate production. Arizona.s cli mate is splendidly adapted to the raising of all kinds of fruit and in every case where care is bestowed upon the young trees, the result surprises even the gar deners. Mr. Tuttle is a painstaking man with his beautiful trees and the rich harvest he will reap from the .yielding branches, will amply repay him for his trouble. Deacon It pains me Mr. Begg to see you coming out of a barroom. Mr. Begg All right deacon. Any thing to savo your fcslin's. I'll co riebt in 8giin.

Wife Well I told the butcher that if it wasn't good I wonld send you right around to his shop to give him a thrash ing and I hope you will take some one with you for he looked pretty ugly and I did not like the way he handled his big knife. Humph! Oh, I've seen worse meat than this. Angry Stranger (to assistant editor) Is the man who is responsible for this ar ticle in? Assistant editor No sir. Angry Stranger Where does he sit.

Sixteen, seven teen, eighteen a very bad case, sir. Patient Yes, I should think so. Er how long have you been affected this way? Man Wants a Tonio. When there is a lack of elastic energy in the system, shown by a sensation ot languor and unrest in the morning, fre quent yawning during the day and dis turbed sleep at night, Hostetter's Stom ach Bitters infuses unwonted energy into the enfeebled and nervous, endowing them with muscular energy, and abili-y to ropose heathfully, and digest without inconvienience. Nervousness, headache billiousness, impaired appetite and a fee ble troublesome stomach, are all and speedily set right by this matchless regu lator and in vigorant. The mineral pois ons, among them strychninaand nux vom ica, are never safe tonics, even in infini tesimal doses. The Bitters answers the purpose more effectually, and can be re lied upon as perfectly safe by the most prudent. Fever and ague, and Kidney troubles and rheumatism also yield to it. . Unnsoessary Misery. Probably at much misery comes from habitual censtipatioi m from any de rangement of the functions of the body, and it is difficult to core, 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 wesnea and children. 35 cents. At all druggists. I. Mack & Co , pro prietors, S.
