"Arizona Charlie" Imagines Him
self to Be in the Employ of
the Above Company.
Oue of the strangest characters in
tbe southwest, or for that matter iu
any part of the country, is Arizoua
Charlie, as the trainmen call him,
who imagines 'hat he is in the employ
if th Southern Pacific compauy' as a
track walker. For fire years uow this
queer guardian of tbe rails has tramp
ed hack aud forth over the lung
t retch of desert betw.eu H I'aso and
ludiu, an 1 the highest salaried officer
or tbe most valued employe of the
Southern Pacific system could not
possibly show mors concern for the
-afety of its .trains and passengers
than, does Arizona Charlie. He walks
every step of the six hundred miles,
and not a foot of the track but he
notes carefully, aud it is said his vig
ilance has averted numerous accidents
where wrecks might bare occurred on
account of broken rails or washouts.
Though uol employed by the company
he thoroughly believe- that be is, and
tiis hallucination it further encour
aged by a remittance nf money which
is paid to him at the end of bis "di
vision." Who provides this money is
not yet certainly kuowu, but it is
supposed to be sent by a wealthy
In other living iu San Francisco. He
is frequently seen by the trainmen,
who all have a cherry word for the
old mau i be is past sixty and often
try to prevail upon bim to ride. He
always refuses, saying that by doing
so a bad piece of track might be over
looked, aud if au accideut occurred
ihe compauy would blame bim for it.
He always carries bis blankets, a tin
cau, some ground coffee, aud other
food, besides a canteen of water.
Sometimes be necessarily passes close
to a hobo camp, and the "bo's" hold
fatal ii p for his supplies, aud then he
tana badly until he cau reach a sec
lioti house, where there is always a
welcome and a fresh supply of food
and water for tbe old man. He has
often been invited to put up for the
night iu section houses.but has alay.
Ile has not slept iu a house
for over five years. A few days ago
the crew of a freight traiu.wben near
iug .Maricopa, saw a gang of hoboes in
the act of robbing Arizona Charlie of,
in.- supplies. It happened that tbe
train had to be stopped for a few niiu
ntes on account of a hot box and the
luakeiiieii chased tbe hobos away and
restored the old man's grub to bim.
What this strange man's name is or
who his couuectinus are has never
beeu learned. He dresses poorly,
looks like the average tramp, but
through tbe glamour of bis wierd, un
natural imagination, there is tbe
-hadow of a past when tbe mental vis
ion was impaired and tbe few words
he passes are not of the ignorant or
vicious. He is harmless s,ud bis em
ployment serves to furnish the means
of hi- enjoyment, which seems to be
the de.-ire to do good. Whether he
accomplishes auythiug is not consid

any rate, aud to be faithful to bis
supposed employers is bis constant
watchword. Yuma Sentinel.
Traffic Is Heavy.
The S. F. P. A P. railroad reports
an unusually heavy freight business
at present. In fact it is so heavy that
it taxes t he motive power of the road to
its utmost to move it. Tbe company

A Reform Is Needed.
The sad case of a young t Sermsu who
nas just been pardoned in New York
-tate .alls attention anew to the need
of more modern and humane methods
of dsalin.' with prisoners.
Six years ago, a laiy of twenty de
Mrted a Usrsaan warship lying in
New i ork harbor, ignorant of the
sit and of the language, he fell into
l ad coi.c any. who inatie him drunk,
ami while in that condition got him
to hi Ip tin at break into a house on
State Island. He had borne au ex
client character up to that time, and
was horrified when he awoke sober
and leai n d wl.Ht he hu1 done. TtiQ
judge gave him sixteen yeais iu slate
prison, justifying the unusually heavy
sentence ou tbe ground that the bouse

The state prisou at Sing Sing is so
unsanitary that it has beeu condemned

state hoard of health, the state prison
commission, aud the New York prison
association. The cells are .-o infected
with tuberculosis that prisoners who
enter in perfect heal'ib soon contract
the disease, and a sentence to a shorl
imprisonment is often practically a
sentence of death.
This young German, whose conduct
dnriug the six years that he has lieeu
iu prison has al .vay.- been -perfect, ba
just beeu pardoned out: but iu what
condition? A BMdJteal expert who has
examined him reports that "the w hole
of the left lung is involved with tbe
tuberculo-is process, and the apex of
tbe right lung also shows evidence of
trouble." Kfforts are uow being made
to secure his pardon from the German
nsrarasnent for the military offense of
drsertiou. as that he may go home to
Ills mother to die.

He located the owner and asked the
price. "One hundred dollars,"' was
the reply. After looking the animal
orer and trying her speed he couclilil
ed it was a good trade, and wroteriut a

day he found that the mare was blind,
but this did not hinder her speed or
detract from her general appearance.

and succeeded in attracthnj the atteu

Interesting1 Meeting of
the Monday Club.
Plans Are Formulated For the
Practical Work of the
The Monday club bel.l its initial
meeting for tbe year ou Monday after
noou iu tbe bright sunny aud cheer
ful room iu the new public school
building, occupied by the kinder
garten. There wa.- a good attendance
of members, and great interest was
manifested in the meeting The pres
ident. Mrs B. D. liilliughurst, presid
ed, and Mrs. T. - A. Bate read the
miuutes of the last meeting which
were approved by tbe club. In ac
cordance with custom tbe president
made ber annual address, iu which
she expressed her views on what par
ticular work the club should engage
in during tbe year outside of the rou
tine of regular literary work. At tbe
conclusion of ber address otber mem
bers were given an opportunity of ex
pressing their views on tbe same sub
ject, aud the opportunity was taken
advantage of by several members. Tbe
various addresses demonstrated that
tbe members have three things upper
most in their minds for tbe practical
work of the club, viz. : aid to tbe free
library, beautifying tbe grounds of
the public .-chool and tbe introduc
tion of manual training in tbe
It will be remembered that the Mon
day club took tbe initiative" towards
establishing tbe free library, aud it was
solely through the efforts of its mem
bers that the enterprise was under
taken. After it had been gotten well
under way. it was practically taken
out of the hands of tbe club iu some
way or other, just how no one seems
to kuow. and it dropped into a state
of inocnoos desuetude, iu which con
dition it remained for two or three
years. Now that the build'ng has
been erected aud aid is needed, the
members of the club have returned to
their first love and object of their
creatinu.aud passed a motion to appro
priate 910 per month towards its sup
port. A few years ago the club took up
tbe subject of beautifying the school
rooms and for that purpose secured a
number of fine pictures aud presented
hen: to tbe schools aud along this
same line now they take up the ques
tion t beautifying tlv gTounds, which
will no doubt develop equally satis
Manual training for tbe public
schools has also beeu a subject dear to
:he heart.- of many of the members
ind it is a subject worthy of their
best efforts and will uo doubt result
in tbe final accomplishment of tbe ob
ject. Tbe club is divided this year iuto
different sections each of which holds
a separate meeting during the month,
tbe musical section being in session
this afternoon at the residence of Mrs.
J. C. Herndon. Yesterday's meeting
had a musical sect iou annex to it, be
ing a beautiful solo, rendered most
sweetly by Mrs. May Zuck Fine.
Tbe ciub decided to hold its regular
meetings during the year in tbe kin
dergaiteu room in tbe public school
building. The members yesterday
visited the sewing room presided over
by Miss Corbett. and which is being
maintained by a member of tbe club,
aud were highly pleased with the
methods employed by Miss Corbett,
who thoroughly understands her busi
ness aud who will make a success of
