-f JPEOSPEMTY AND' PIE. An Illustration of How the One Feeds on the Other. ' Statistics Tfhicli Tell Unerringly the Actual Condition of the SCasscs Uovr the Blg Eakern Dispense Charity to Hungry Crcv.'ds- Poverty and pie apparently have little in common. The hungry man who draws in his helt another notch as meal-time passes is not likely to spend his last nickel in the luxury of a triangular cut of juicy apple pie. Even that monarch of pies, the fascinating but unwhole some mince pie, sends up its alluring odor in vain; the man with the aching void passes by on the other side and spends his niekel for doughnuts or a ham sandwich with mustard on it. The connection between poverty and pic, says the Chicago Kews, is not a subtle, indefinable abstraction which requires a metaphysical mind to unravel. It is as plain as a twice-told tale and a good deal more interesting. "When the sale of pics runs below zero, hard, pinching poverty is abroad in the land and want takes the best seat at th...

VOLUME 7. ST. JOHNS, APACHE COUNTY, ARIZONA TEBBITORT, THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1891. NUMBER 31 The Devil and the Lawyer. There runs a quaint legeivl of ancient-day lore, Of a quarrel 'twixt Heaven and Hell, O'er the tonndary linet the clamor grew high, But how It ran no cue could tell. St. Peter he swore he had ouce mapped it out With the tools of a stray engineer, But the Devil he paid, with a quizzical smile, That it "couldn't be right, it was clear."' The angels grew t!red of sitting on clouds, And. watching the endless dispute, So they packed up the harp and folded their wing. And floated away with the lute. There came no decision, St. Peter grew mad, And sad the long look on his face, When the Devil suggested an admirable plan, That a jury.should hear the case. And each a lawyer should bring the next day To decide who hsd been in the rfeht So the taint ttruktd his chin, and upward he flew, While the Devil took downward his flight Bright and early next morning the Devil ap peared And ...

AH SIN'S ENGLISH. Some Facts as to the Chinese-American Dialect. It is well known that the Chinese can not master the sound of the letter "r," but this has proved the rock on which many professed writers of the Chinese dialect have come to grief. They do not recognize the fact, says the San Francisco Chronicle, that while John Chinaman can not make the "r" sound, he is fertile in e::pe&ients to avoid it. Two illustrations will show how easy it is to blunder on this point. In an early edition of one of Bret Harte's stories altered, we believe, in later editions he makes a Chinese servant call him self "Ah Ri," which is a manifest im possibility. His name would certainly have been c'Ah Li," for the initial "r" would not only not come trippingly from his tongue, but not at all. But in the same or another story he makes a Chinaman call his employer "IHr. ITostel," his name being Foster. Now, no "Chinese person," to quote the re striction act, would ever say "Fostcl." He would soften...

It is an old story, and a true one, that manj' supposed "American- isms" are really survivals of good old English words and phrases, which were brought to this country centuries ago, and which have had the good fortune to thrive here, while in their ancient habitat they have perished from the lips, and even from the memor', of the peo- ' pie. Some real Americanisms our . English cousins have found to be good enough to be adopted from us, and there are others which may never commend themselves to the English taste, but which are by no means to be rashly abandoned by Americans on that account. Per haps the time may come when American English will be as distin guishable from Australian English or British English as Ionic Greek was from the Attic or the Doric ; and unless one is . prepared to call it a misfortune that Herodotus wrote in on...

i ' n fi ll mil n r THE CHOCTAY HEREAFTER. Primitive Kcligiou3 I2clicj of That Tribe of Indians. ' 1 A son of the first missionary among the Choctaw Indians once related to me, says a Kansas City Star man, some of the primitive religions beliefs of the tribe, among them a version of a uni versal deluge, which, it was stated, was one of their oldest legends. Once, many years ago, it was night over the whole nation for a long time, and the whole nation despaired. After waiting many months a streak of light was discovered far away in the north, and the people rejoiced until they found to their horror ,that it was an immense mountain of water that was rolling down toward - them. The flood killed every one but a . few families, who, somehow or other, had been warned of it, and having built themselves a raft, were rescued. From their earliest traditions the peo ple have been taught to believe in a life after they leave this world. They be- lieve that the spirit, the moment it leaves the b...

But not alone have prophecies and specula tions on this startling subject been confined to religionists. Every race of poople in every age has had its lurid predictions by seers and ora cles of the end of the world. There are now living many persons who remember the excitement and alarm which was produced nearly 50 years ago by the preachings of William Ann AlAiliVi WX WIT X UlUj II 11 V VtWwJtWV . that the end of all flesh was near, and who set the day of final con summation for a date in October, 1844.

VOLUME 7. ST. JOHNS, APACHE COUNTY, ARIZONA TERRITORY, THURSDAY, JUNE 25, r891. NUMBER 35 The Derils Dance. So much has been written recent ly of the "ghost dance" and all its attendant horrors that perhaps a briet description of what is known among the YhiteMountain Apaches as the "devil's dance" may not be without interest. The "devil's dance," notwith standing the suggestive name, is one purely of peace, and is cele brated by these Indians in honor of their greatest chief, long since departed. From all that can be gathered it seems that the White Mountain Apaches have been taught by tradition, through the "medicine men" that their great chief disap peared with the setting of the sun, and that his return can only be se cured by the adherence of his tribe to the manner of customs prevalent during his powerful reign. Hence, at a stated period, certain forms and ceremonies, the "devil's dance" among the number, are observed in token of their continued faith in his ultimate return. Th...
