STORM FRIDAY NIGHT
LOOKED BAD AI FIRSI
a Week Ago.
What for a time gave promise of
being a rofietitinn of last Sunday's
storm blew up in Tempe shortly af
ter dark Friday evening. It came
more or less unexpectedly and
few minutes the wind raged
terrific force. It was not to be
pared, however, with the wind
week ago and lasted but a
time. It was followed by a soaking
rain, however, that put all the rains
of the summer up to this time in
the shade. For an hour it poured
and the rain storm was .accompanied
by a brilliant electrical display. The
lightning put the electric lights out
of business for the time being, but
they were turned on again later at
night after all danger from the ele
ments had passed over. After the
first big , burst of speed, the rain
slowed down to a slow but steady
gait and kept It ip well into the
morning. It was the best soaking
the south side has had in a long
time and was general. South of
town five miles it rained even harder
than in town.
The gust of wind did a little dam
age but as everything loose hail been
blown away in the last storm, there
was less opportunity for it to display
its jower. The roof of the Franken
lierg warehouse, used by the A. J.
Peters company, went off. A little
damage was done at Finch's stable.
n number of trees were blown down
and a few oddn and ends left over
from the last storm were disposed of.

DAIE ORCHARD CROPS
INJURED BY WIND
The Recant Wind Storms Have
Greatly Reduced This Season's
J. E. Coit of the Arizona Experi
ment station spent Friday here
and in the absence of Mr. Simmons,
looked over the situation at the gov-
ernnient date orchard. He found that
the recent wind storms have played
havoc with the crop and he roughly
estimates that the yield has been re
duced at least 40 per cent. The storm
of a week ago was responsible for
the greater part of the damage,
though the other storms since have
added their share. The south side
of the trees suffered the worst, the
storm coming from that direction.
Hardly a bunch of dates on that side
iff the trees was left intact. Those
on the north slile, heing somewnat
protected by the trees, suffered less
and In many cases were not at all
injured. The big leaves, In some
instances, were whipped by the wind
until nothing but the fiber w:us left.
Mr. Coit brought several samples to
town which he will send to the de
partment of agriculture, that looked
exactly like the frayed end of a hemp
It Is very unfortunate that this
should have occurred this season for
the indications were that the crop
would have been the largest in the
history of the orchard. The trees
bloomed early and the fruit, is Just
now showing up in splendid shape.

Don'ts For Fat Folks.
Here are the don'ts for fat folks
if they would avoid getting fatter
during the lazy months: Don't drink
water, don't eat rich foods, don't In
dulgo In spirituous liquors, don't eat
candy? don't lie In the hammock; in
short, don't take it easy or enjoy
yourself at all, but keep moving re
gardless of wilted collars and sop
ping shirtwaists. Take long walks,
eat starchy food, drink little and
sleep seven hours or less no more.
If you don t fancy that program, you
can adopt the Detroit Idea. II re
ports from the Michigan City be only
half true, the "Detroit Idea" is cer
tainly a blessing to the fat. In the
first place it is Inexpensive; second.
it is perfectly harmless, and third,
no dieting Is necessary you can eat
what you like. Nevertheless it takes
off the fat without causing wrinkles,
at the rate, it is claimed, of a pound
a day. Here is the recipe in full:
Step over to your druggist and ask
for one-half ounce of Marmola. one
half ounce of Fluid Extract Cascara
Aromatic, and three and one-half
ounces of Syrup Simplex. Oet the
Marmola In the sealed half-ounce
package and mix it In with the other
two nt home, as it Is necessary thin
latter should be fresh to get the In'st
results. Then take one tea-spoonful
after meals and at bedtime until
your fat is gone. Simple, isn't It?
You can eat, drink and sleep as you
please this summer and yet be Just
as slim as you like without any
chance of injury to your health or
your lazy bones.

of his coffee experience:
"For years I suffered with period

times I was almost frantic. I was
sallow, constipated, irritable, sleep
less; my memory was poor, I trem
bled and my thoughts were often
"My wife In her wisdom believed
coffee was responsible for these Ills
and urged me to drop it. - I tried
many times to do so, but was its
"Finally wife bought a package of
Postum and persuaded me to try it,
but she made it same as ordinary
coffee and I was disgusted with the
taste. (I make this emphatic be
cause I fear many others have had
the same experience.) She" was dis
tressed at her failure and we care
fully read the directions, made it
right, boiled It full 15 minutes after
boiling commenced, and with good
cream and sugar, I liked it it In
vigorated and seemed to nourish me".
"That was about a year ago. Now
I have no headaches, am not sal

gone, my brain clear and my hand
steady. I have gained 20 lbs. and
feel I am a new man.
"I do not hesitate to give Pos

coffee was the main thing, but I had
dropped it before, using chocolate,
cocoa and other things to no pur

as an invigorant, but as an article

FOR CONCRETE BLOCK
Erection of Handsome Structure On
Main and Macdonald to Commence
The contract for the erection of a
handsome one-story cement block to
be built by Dr. A. J. Chandler, was
awarded to J. J. Greville and Daviu

company on Friday last. City Engineer
O. A. Turney was busily engaged yes-
terdav In fixing and surveying for the
grades of the new structure; on which
work will commence immediately, and
will be erected according to the plans
drawn and submitted by Thornton
The block will be erected on a mis
sion style plan, with an Inside court,
which will open on the Main street
side giving the building the form of a
hollow square. A pergola will run
the full length of this front extending
a distance on cither end und covering
a length of 155 feet on the south front
of the building. This will be built of
cment columns on which stained
cross pieces will rest, on which awn
ings may be rolled when necessary. A
pneumatic dusting service will be In
stalled in each of the rooms, which
will provide for cleaning by the com
pressed air system. Arrangements for
ciKIing the rooms will also be made
by water percolating over charcoal,
through which air will be forced. This
will keep the rooms at an even tem
perature during the periods of hot
weatht r, and nlso furnish the purest
of air. The construction will be fire
proof. No woo'j (,?'"? used except in
the windows and dm.r casings.
The rooms on the west side of the

A BRIEF STORM
Bill A FURIOUS ONE
It Turned Things Topsy Turvy While
The heaviest wind and rain storm
here this season struck Mesa about
nine o'clock Friday evening last; and
while of short duration, did a great
deal of damage while it lasted. M;lry
umbrella trees were broken down, and
several uprooted The park on the
north side of town presented a deso
Irte appearance early yesterday morn
im, as there were twelve of the large
umbrellas there lying prone uion the
ground, some ef these having been up
rooted the night before. There was
no residence street here that wholly es
caped the effects of the wind, trees
at intervals on all of these being brok
en and twisted.
While the siorm was at its height,
the home of Dr. J. B. Nelson was
struck by lightning, the bolt entering
and shattering the ceiling in the par
lor, knocking plaster off in many
places. The family had retired, and
none were injured as the damage all
occurred in the parlor.
The barn in the rear of the home
of H. A. Davis was unroofed, and later
picked up bodily and carried several
feet, and finally deiiosited some dis
tance In a broken mass of timbers.
The awning in front of the Mesa bak
ery was completely torn from Its fas
tenings, nnd that on the front of the
store adjoining west was torn loose in
The rain which followed the wind
came down in such force and in such
groat amounts, afl to render the mel
ons unfit for handling yesterday. It
Is not thought, however, that any se
rious damage will result from this.
NO CARTOON THIS MORNING.
Because of injury to the chalk plates
from which the cartoons are made, the
regular Sunday morning cartoon failed
to appear in this morning's issue, but
will on Tuesday morning.
FUMPING PLANT AT BULLDOG
Stevenson Byers, superintendent of
the work at the Bulldog mine, who
was in town on Fridav last, returned
to the. property yesterday morning.
Just at present Mr. Byers is assisting
In the installation of a large pump
at the Bulldog property, for Mr. Shat
tuck. This machinery will be used to
take the water out of the shafts. The
pump is a seven inch piston, and will
throw a three-inch stream of water.
This will be operated by a thrity-five
horse power steam boiler, the connec
tions have a sliding tube permitting
the pump to sink with the water level,
and it is estimated that the shafts can
be pumed dry in about ten days'
time, when active work on the claims
will be resumed.
When speaking of the heavy rain
storm which prevailed in that section
on Thursday last, Mr. Byers said that
this was one of the hardest rains
which he has eer seen on the desert
and that it was a continuous down
pour from ten o'clock a. m. to 1:30
in the aftornoon. All of the gullies
and streams soon filled with the flood
waters, some of them to a depth of
five and six feet.
FAVORABLE REPORT ON MINING
Dr. Brack, returned home from a
two days' trip to Florence on Friuay
last, where he went to have some min
ing claims examined.
The doctor is negotiating with east
ern parties for the tale of his" mining
properties, which are located south
Florence In the Picacho mountains,
and comprise a group of ten claims.
He was accompanied by Fitz Mack,
who is a mining expert and went
there in the interest of the parties who
are desirous of securing the proper
ties. He reported very favorably on
what he saw there, stating that In his
opinion the formations were very sim
ilar to those at Jerome, where millions
of tons of valuable ore have been tak
en out. The claims run chiefly in
copper, with a sprinkling of gold and

outcome of the deal and it is expected
that the eastern parties will begin ac

as they acquire tr.e claims, should the
deal be consummated.

On yesterday morning, the ninth car
load of Thompson Seedless grapes was
sent out, and it was expected that an
other car would be ready for shipment
by this morning. The recent rains

dustry other than to make the grapes

received here yesterday to the effect
that grapes were being sold at a price
which would net them $1.40 per crate.
