April fool.

One more lifeless form is expected to arrive at the undertaker's to-night; name unknown.

Cow-boy Hunt, who was shot by the sheriff's posse at Chandler's ranch, is said to be getting on as well as could be expected.

In Judge Wallace's court to-day, Spence's examination was continued, Mrs. Francisco Castro being cross-examined, which occupied the entire day.

The bullion shipment for the Tombstone M. & M. Co., by Wells, Fargo & Co's express, was five bars, weighing 908 pounds, and valued at $10,583

Persons desiring to join the Spanish class will meet in the court house next Monday evening, at seven o'clock. The two classes will b e organized then.

Has the lonely watcher on the mesa been seen by any one else while looking for lost stock (lost by somebody else) at midnight? Too thin! What next?

There weren't as many April fools today as might have been expected. This was not the fault of the boys at the Cosmopolitan, who industriously worked the "time game" during most of the day.

The business manager of the Nugget and one of the compositors of the Epitaph got roped in on the "tie game" to-day. There was no damage done, as the young men did not happen to have their guns on.

A telegram received by the Epitaph this morning conveys the sad news of the death of Mrs. A. E. Fay, at Dos Cabezas, at 1 o'clock yesterday, of congestion of the heart. Mr. Fay has our sympathy in this affliction, as he will have that of all who knew his estimable wife.
