the people of Tombstone and vicinity owe
.the Captain a deep debt of gratitude for

warm heart of Tombstone. Besides this
Captain Hurst is deeply interested in the

other industries iu this' Territory with
which he has been identified since 1869,
it is but reasonable to' -Suppose that he
will rejoice in our growth and 'deplore
any set back to our prosp rity.
