"While we are still on the subject
of civic pride," says Doc the Duck,
"I might say that it sure 'gets my
goat' to see some of our citizens so
eager in the pursuit of the 'elusive dol
lar that they entirely have forgotten
that there are otheV people living in
the same town with them, and that
these same people have any rights
"The most flagrantly noticeable one
of these cases that has been. brought
to my attention, says the Duckling,
"is a fence on the east end of Beale
street, which cuts out into the sidewalk
so much that when two persons are
walking abreast, when they arrive at
this point, they are compelled to single
file to get through or take the prefer
ence of going out into the street. ;
"It seems perfectly reasonable,"'
says the Doc, "that an owner of prop
erty in the center of the residential
district, would have pride enough to
make his property attractive, let alon,
having his fence running into the side'
walk, but it seems not and I guess

The Copper Queen is just getting
ready to go into commission in the re
duction of silver-lead ores. For years
the district has been known as a
copper section and few people realize
that it has several big silver-lead
mines, tor a long time the Shattuck
Arizona has been shipping lead ore to
the El Paso smelter, but now this ore
and that of the Copper Queen will be
milled, the silver saved in bullion and
the lead reduced to high grade concen
trates. About 1500 tons of ore will be
handled daily in the mill. The Copper
Queen is said to have two million tons
of this class of ore in sight.
With the three metals this district
should add many years to its lease of
life and diversify mining in that section.

the Copper Queen hospital at Bisbee
Tuesday last and report has it that
he is getting along all right.
The patriotic zeal of the Mormon
church and its full confidence in the
successful termination of the war are
shown by its action in cleaning out
the granaries of wheat that have been
maintained in its communities for
many years past as insurance against

storehouses have yielded over 250,000
bushels of wheat.
