An English suigeon says the peoph who use rocking chairs the most get deal the soonest. Rocking also hurts the eyes and makes the people near sighted. Mrs. Hathaway, of Louisville Ky., has been acting as Deputy Commissioner of the Chancery Court in that city. She i the first woman to fill such a post in Ken tucky.

A glass bird cage which has been in vented, having the sides of the glass while the top is of wire caging in the ordinary way with the air freely admitted by the open dome, is likely to be popular. Fifty Massachusetts men who were members of the State Legislature in 1862 dined together a few evenings ago, and a reporter says that there was not a black hair visible on the heads of the vet erans. A swarm of bees at Bailey's Mills Ga., instead of storing their honey in a hive ,or hollow tree, have attatched the comb io one of the branches of an oak tree ktanding near the house, much in the manner of wasps. ' Hon. S. R. DeLong of Fort Bowie will take his departure this morning for his home at that place. Mr. DeLong is one of the oldest residents of Arizona having resided in this territory for upwards of twenty-five years. The latest report from Fort Huachu ca Is to effect that Dennis McCarty is nearing his end. Dr. Brown the excel lent post doctor says that his sickness is Bright's disease of the Kidneys. Mrs. Chcyncyjof" Tombstone and her husband are doing all in their power for the relief of the sufferer, the kind lady in particu lar attending to hit every want. Fort Hu ichuca- has long been recoc- nized as one of the most be tutiful spots in the west, its ch inning location, far up on the slope of the Hu ichuca mountains, where evergreen tie.'s and cleir sparkling water greet thi dusty traveler as he approaches this Eden of Cochise county. the winding pie is int roti leiding from the tounof Cnarle.ion, on the San Pedro tiver, towards the Fort, is over a rolling mesa, and as far as the eye extends north ind south it will follow an undultling billowy prairie, the nutricious grasses of which afford splendid feed for the numerous herds of fit cutle, wh ch range and thrive upon its sustenance. A little cist of the canyon in which is located the Fort, is thi burial grounds lor the Post, here, by the base of this ofty mount -.in, which stands as a sen tinel 'over the graves of the nation's le.td, sleep side by side the deendeis of air country, the national garments of lue put aside, and the serene sacied obes of white are donned. They have fought their last battle.

Pe'ace to their remains. For NATURAL BEAUTY and pleasures of climate, Fort Hua chuca has no equal in Anzjna. Si'uatrd n a lovely canyon, surrounded by mag uncctit hills, it possess :s faiures that vill, at no distant d ly, renJer it famous is the mo.t beiutiful Fort and the pride of the Pacific slop.:. It is an eight compiny post, bat at the present time is rily occupied by five. The d;o irtment recognizing iis splenJi 1 locition and nalthfulinfljmces, have recently let a ,-ontract fjr the erection of another new it of birracks, and when these buildings ire completed, it unquestionably will be the grandest military post in the west. The opinion is generally shared by the oficers that it will be increased to a twelve-company post within the next yeat. The post is under the command if General Forsyth, an able commander and an amiable, honorable gentleman, one who has the confidence and resoect of both soldier and civilian. Captain Lawton, one of the best known officers in the American service, is stationed at this place. Death has visited the little family of Captain Liwton and his worthy vife several times since their residence it Fort Hu ichuca, the 1 1st a lovely little child, died last week. Tne death cf this little one leaves the worthy couple childless. The Epitaph, which is an adm'.rer of this w.irthy officer, who as sisted so materially in putiing down the Apiche war, extends its most sincere sympuhy to the bereaved parents in this th-irlast std itfflciion. The numerous other officers attached to this post, are genial, kind hearted men, and are at all times pteised to extend the privileges of the place to VISITING STRANGERS. The post hotel, owned by Mrs. Porter, is a model institution and has under her careful and frugal management gained a Territorial reputation. Visitors to this hotel are treated in the most agreeable manner possible, and invariably leave the establishment with regret. Dr. Paul Brown, one of the most skillful and popular army doctors of this division, is stationed at the Fort. Dr. Brown is a welcome visitor to the homes of many of Tombstone's people. The hospital is a very creditable institution and reflects credit upon the management of the medical department. All in all Fort Huachuca is one of the mnst delightful places to be found in this Territory. Good hotel accomodations, pare cold water and scenery unsurpassed, officers good natured and atrreeable. weather delightful and invigorating, and we would advice our citizens who are seeking a summer resort, to take a loik at Fort Huachuca and its surroundings befor- l going eUewbe-ra. I There is a large spring at Sanderville, Georgia, around which a circle of trees is being set out, a reoresentative tree for each State in the Union. The one for Texas will have the effigy of a prominent citizen suspended from a lower branch. A. New York disp itch says of a man who recently died there that he was a "clergyman, journalist, veterinary sur geon, and author of a work on spiritual ism. It seems sad that death should have cut him down just as he was going to begin , running a b at on the Erie canal and write a volume of poems and was thinking of inventing a new tele phone. They say that Ben Butler once got a fee of $2,000 by simply telling a man who came to him fur advice, to shut his rmuth and keep still, lust think of it and the timber fairly alive w.th m;n who never got a cent, but only irnde matters all th wose, by giving the same advice. But they all made the mistake of giving it to their wives. "Can the Missouri river be dammed?" asks a Mi ntana exchange. Can ii? A-k a Missouri river steamboat captain whether it can be or not. Ask the mate. Ask the whole crew. From the way you talk it will probably be news to you, but it is nevertheless a fact that there are more artistic and extensive damns strung along the Missouri river than any other stream in the world. Dos (Lbezas. Considerable work is bein3 done in the way of mining in, an 1 around Dos Cabezas. The Park mill has been in op cration for the pist two weeks, under the managment of Murat M irstirston. The mill, is a five stamp gold mill, and is working on ore taken from the Maple Grove,, a mine which he has under bond six months from April first, f r the mod est sum of $250,000. The mill is dning well. The rock on which it is at work at the present time is very rich. Mr. DeLong, is lso doing considerable work on one of his properties called the Silver Cave, which is considered one of the best properties fn the district. This mine his hid a large amount ol work on if, there being one drift two hundred f et in length. Dos C lb 1 is has m iny v da ahle mining properties, and will some d ty shine forth as a full fledged mining camp, and bullion producer. Col.

S 10 iM he nxr.iin hie health he will assist substantialy in bui -ding up, and developing the resources of that camp. His Only Bsgret.

You are sorry you charged the poor man so much and want to release him of part of it before you go, Ah it does my heart good to see such noble impulses. "Hold on parson" replied the man, speaking with great effort, that isn't quite it. I was thinking that I might yes I might just as well have charged him four per cent and got at a bonus of $10 besides. But it's too late. County Records.

Schumacher Pascos Peter Schumacher, who was to meet James Pascoe, in Butte City Montana, in a wrestling much for $200, has faif,- ted his deposit of $100 and refused to mike the ma'ch. Pascoe's friends in Tomb stone have felt the utmost confidence in Mr. Pascoe's ability, to tlrrow Schu m ichcr, and the refusal of Pete, to meet his able opponent, goes a long ways to wards proving this fact. Several ears ago Elder Blodeett preached on Sund lys at a new Dakota town on the Lower Missouri. On week .diysbjj followed the vocation of horse dealer. One Sunday after taking his place in the pulpit he said: "My friends. I am requested to announce that the sewing society will meet at Sister Smith's Tuesday afternoon.
