Dennis May, one of the oldest pros

country, died at the Sisters Hospital
in Prescott a few days ago. Mr. May
was one of the earliest locators of the
famous Congress mine, in the south
part of Yavapai county. Edward F.
Gilbert, who mot an accidental death
in Kingman last July, was interested
with Mr. May in the first location of
the property, but later abandoned it
on account of its refractory ores and
low grade in gold. May was known to
all the early settlers of this and our
sister county as a genial, warru-heart-
cmanl vnnra nttomDt. the trOUPO Of
Cossacks and wild Russian acrobats
and dancers which bears the name of
thfi Newskvoff Troupe. These people
are natives of the wild Steppes of far
off Russia. They acknowledge no sov
ereign and the Czar of all the Rus-
sias is wise enough to let them alone.
They have a love of wild adventure
but are seldom willing to venture into
civilization but Mr. Sasse painted the
new countrv of America to them in
such golden colors and offered them a
salary that simply seemed princely,
and so they determined to come to
this country. The exhibition they
give is said to be wonderful and mar
velous in the wierdness of their cus
toms and ceremonies. The men are
super-naturally strong. Their daring
feats of expert horsemanship arouses
the wildest enthusiasm. The women
are the most graceful dancers and ac
robats this country has ever seen.
While the Newskyoff troupe are ex
hibiting everything else will come to
a standstill, no other act being allow
ed to interfere with the full pic
turesqueness of it. The costumes worn
by the troupe are wonderfully beauti
ful. The act will be exhibited when
Norris & Rowe's circus comes to King
man Wednesday October 30th.

One of the hardest rains in years
fell in the vicinity of Little Meadows
last Sunday night. The flood came
down the canyon to such a depth that
for a time it was feared that it would
rpnn.h thfi tents, where a number of
teamsters were camped. The road
from the point of mountain below the
Meadows to the mountain top, near
Goldroad, was washed out so badly
that it was impossible for the big
teams to get over it, only the stage
making the hazardous trip. Thirty
men are at work repairing the break
in the road to enable the oil teams to
get into Goldroad with fuel for the big
mill, it will be several days before
the road can be fully repaired, al
though every effort is being made to
put it in the best possible shape with
the least delay. The . roads were deep
in dust when the rain came and it
swept everything to bedrock in a
twinkling. Other roads were cut up
slept. Early in the evening coyotes
had come around the camp and J. W.
Walker and Leo. F. Rivard had gone
out of the partly finished bunk house
to get a shot at them. About mid
nicrht the two men were again awak
ened by the prowling coyotes and after
getting their guns Walker went out
side and young Rivard went over by
his father's bed, where there was an
opening through which he thought he
might get a shot at the animals. Wal
ker soon returned from the outside
and went to where Rivard was stand
ing in the darkness of the house. The
two waited and watched at the open
ing for about five minutes and then
Walker went back to his bed. Leo
Rivard started to follow Walker and
as he was passing his father's cot his
fortv-five colt's revolver was in some
manner discharged, the heavy bullet
striking Rivard, the elder, in the back,
below the left shoulder, ranging for
ward and passing out at the nipple of
the right breast. His death must
have been instantaneous, there being
not a sound uttered by him nor a move
ment of the body. Young Rivard ap
parently realized at once that his fath
er was shot and fell on the bed in a
faint. Lights were soon brought and
the dread discovery was made that
Rivard was dead. A team was hitch
ed up and as soon as Leo Rivard could
be gotten in shape he and another
man went at once to Franconia, where
word was sent to the family of Rivard
in Los Angeles and another message
to the coroner at Kingman. By order
of the coroner the body was taken to
Franconia, where an inquest was held
Saturday afternoon. After the inquest
the body was taken to Needles where
it was embalmed and shipped to Los
John D. Rivard was at one time an
engineer of the old Atlantic & Pacific
railroad and his family lived at Will
iams for nino years. ie later re
moved to Los Angeles. He is reputed
to have been the first sheriff of Coco
nino county. He was a large man,
weighing at the time of his death iW
pounds. When killed he was at the
head of an organization, which had
for its object the building ot a large
mill to crush the cement gravel of the
Cheiuehuevis mountain placers and
recover the gold values contained
therein. He and a Mr. Gardner had
planned to leave Franconia last Sat-
gu mnrnincr for LOS AnL'eleS to
make the purchase of the mill.

William Eugene Ingelow and Miss
Anna Rosalie Finch were united in
marriage at Los Angeles, California,
last Wednesday. Mr. Ingelow is man
ager of the Western Union telegraph
office at Coronado, besides being in
terested in several paying enterprises.
He is a relative of Jean Ingelow, the
poetess, and is one ot the brightest
and most energetic of the young men
of Southern California. Many King
man people hold him in pleasant re
mnmherance and wish him a lifetime
of married happiness.
The storms of this week have been a
blessing to the country, although some
damage has been done to the high
wnvi throughout the mountain and
desert sections. The roads were deep
in dust and big ruts were everywhere,
which, owing to the dry conditions
could not well be remedied. Now that
the rains have come all the roads can
be put in good condition with a small
amount of labor.
