Even though we nurtured it and tried to get it to stay, its pedals dropped and it slowly slipped away. It could have been a beautiful rose, and the best of show. But it chose not to thrive, so we had to let it go. That bud was so beautiful in its younger day, slowly dried up and withered away. The bud and rose will not be forgotten, it will forever be a part of our hearts! Stella Cobb and Family.....

Cochise, Chief
Cochise – Colorado Daily Chieftain – July 3, 1874 – Death of Cachise [Cochise] - Cachise, chief of the Chiricahua Apaches, died in the Dragoon Mountains, Monday, June 8, last. He had been in ill health for some months from dyspepsia, and probably an affection of the lungs. He was about fifty years of age, and of late years had been much addicted to dissipation. He was possessed of a good deal of shrewdness and quite a capacity for controlling men. The extent of his command has been greatly over estimated. He probably at no time had under his control over 300 warriors, and of late the warriors belonging to his band undoubtedly have not exceeded 75. It is probable that in the history of Indian warfare no band of equal size has murdered more white men than this one. For twelve years they inhabited the most rugged mountains near the overland road between Rio Mimbres and the San Pedro, a distance of 200 miles, keeping a close watch for favorable opportunities to attack any and all who might pass along, and hundreds have been slaughtered during that time. Large trains have been taken and stages, mails, drivers, and passengers fared the same fate. After Cachise's death the Apaches killed and ate his horses and burned all his worldly goods. They then chose Cachise's oldest son and moved to the agency. The new chief is about twenty-two years of age, a stout athletic Apache, without any appearance of possessing superior ability. We understand they agree to keep the peace and obey Agent Jeffords. (Arizona Citizen)
