Hi ' i
the elusive two-bit pieces flow with
startling regularity Into the little hox
-which has he bell attachment thereof
and marks up the last sale.
Johnnie Nichols, of Clifton, was a
Douglas visitor last week, and of
"course went home with a mind consid
erably enlarged as to what It Is to be
In a city Instead of a town.

ot mines at Metcalf for the Arizona

Ranger Pe!erson last Thursday. A

about the same ofMark Hanna and

prietors of the "Union," leaves the
hard work he has been doing lately

a pleasant smile in a few days, to re

George Hennlnger, who represents
Shattuck & Muheim. proprietors of the
Douglas Steam Bocllng Works, is one
of Douelas' most ardent hustlers. M.r
Hennlnger W3S the first man to bill a
shipment of beer Into Douglas, and
now holds the record as the first man
to bill a shipment of the same mer
chandise out of Douglas to BIsbee.
Men like Hennlnger are the sort that
make cites out ot towns.
And now the business of the El Paso
Southwestern will move along -with

When Pirtle starts out to do anything,
something's going to happen there
abouts. The only growl we ever hear from
Charlie Overlock is that he cannot get
lumber, fast enough. Six or seven car
loads at a time is only a teaser to what
he needs in his business, and yet he
has an acre of ground covered with
lumber of every description.
Tim Maloney is talking of going

modating, accomplished, thorough,
well pos ed trainmaster of the E. P. &

Brother Biggs, of the Fiege-FIggs
Mercantile company, packed his little

goes on Just the same.
The Honorable Judge Johnson is en
gaged every hour of the day, nearly,
untwisting- knot' y problems of law,
presides over his court with all tho
dignity of a Choate, or D'Israeli. In
our opinion, the Chief Justice of Doug
las is inclined to be pretty nearly fair
in all his declsons, too.
If you want to get up against Ihe
real thing, all you have to do is to
mention to Fred Douglas something
about the Midway being a good thing
for the town, and then see what will
happen to you. Well, U ail depends
on what Is lying around loose.
Dr. Lindley has moved from the
Calumet hotel to his newly completed
residence on Ninth street, where he
will be better able to take caref his
It Is with special pleasure that we
call attention to the new and hand
some Queen hotel. Strictly up to dats
in every particular, even its present
spaciousness has been taxed to its
very utmost. The result is that im
mediate enlargement to twice its pres
ent proportions is to be undertaken,
the contractor having anlved from El
Paso the past week. The rooms are
all large and airy, handsomely fur
nished, with everything that makes
the guests comfortable. The present
dining room, which accommodates 150
persons at one -slttng, reminds one at
meal hours of the summer resorts,
with every table crowded. There Is
good reason for (this, the cuisine being
of the highest order, and which re
ceives tho personal attention of Mrs.
French, wife of the proprietor, and the
service Is excellent. Music Is pro
vided every Sunday evening for the
pleasure of the guests.
Isn't it a pleasure to meet a lady
that really enjoys life? We know of
none that do so more than Mrs. Lind
ley, wife of the doctor. A thorough
horseback rider, a crack shot with the
shotgun or rifle, she enters In'o all the
field sports of her husband and accom
panies him on all of his hunting expe
ditions, and never -wastes any ammuni
tion, as her game bag usually shows.
She also keeps the books of the doc
tor, and is his valuable aid in the
laboratory. If -every good fellow
could only find a package In the prize
bag like the doctor, life wouldn't be so
If you happen to see a little man
with a little black bag in his hand, and
on a sort of a dog-trot most of the
time, that is Dr. Utz, who is kept
busy "nswering the many calls placed
on the tab at his desk.
All of the doctors agree that the city
Is particularly free from sickness at
the present time.

The business of the Douglas streetj
railway ha3 Increased to such an ex
tent that the company has imported
one of the Coronado railway coaches

be the electrifying of the road and its
extension to Agua Prieta.
George F. Reay, the manager of the
Douglas Commercial company, has
succeeded in givng to Douglas one of
the handsomest and best appearing
grocery establishments to be found in
the city. The appearance of the well
filled shelves is -sufficiently enticing to
induce a man to get married, Just to
be able to patronize his store. That
he Is a progressive man is shown by
his 'display ad., appearing in this Issue
of The Review.

wonderful. He has every detail at
the ends of his finger tips.

A glance at the prices quoted in their

will convince all of the remarkable re
ductions in prices made for this sale.
It should be borne in mind that when

this kind, the values are precisely as
stated, and the genuineness of the off
erings cannot be questioned. It is
suggested therefore that all take ad
vantage of this opportunity to make a
dollar do the work of two.
