(From Saturday's Daily.)
Sad and sudden was the death of
W. E. Harris, which occurred at
his ranch, about one mile southeast
of Yeager siding- on the P. & E.
railroad, under unusual circumstanc
es j'esterday afternoon.
The deceased was at, .work on his
well a short distance from the
house,, when without any warning in
dication that he was ill, he plunged
into the opening and fell to the
bottom for a distance of about 150
feet into water that was eighteen
feet deep. Three hours later the
body was recovered, and an exami
nation showed his backbone to have
been broken as he came in contact
with the timbers below.
At the time a hired man was near
by on the surface, but was unable
to render any assistance to prevent
the sad accident.
Mr, Harris, it is said, was sub
ject to heart troubles,
working on the windlass.

A colored gun-man named Leroy
Dickensargc was before Judge Mc
Lane yesterday, for pulling a weap
on on a woman ot bad repute in
the Star saloon on Granite street,
and found guilty. Sentence was
suspended until today, and in the
meantime the bail was fixed at $100
which was not furnished.
The demonstration of Dickensargc
was followed by a stampede, and
had it not been for the timely in
terference of outsiders, there was
the possibility of serious trouble be
ing on the boards, as he was alleged
to be under the influence of liquor.
Under a recent decision of the su
preme court of the state, the dis
playing of a deadly weapon is as
sociatcd with the actual use of such
in inflicting injury, hence the pun
ishment of Dickensargc is expected
to be meted out accordingly.

"We are getting right down to
business and the parcels post ser
vice is proving its popularity by the
daily increase in patronage that has
been recorded," was the manner in
wliich Postmaster Smith of this city
expressed himself yesterday after
noon as the closing hours were ap
We are having trouble in one
line of transmission only, the slight
confusion that prevails by various
patrons misintrepreting the local
rate and linking it to the first zone.
For the benefit of those who as yet
are not aware of the limits of either,
I will state that the local rate for
parcels post matter applies only to
the Prescott postoffice, and includes
delivery to points only within the
boundaries of the city. The first
zone reaches out to offices within
a radius of fifty miles of this office,
with different rates for each. There
is very little trouble now in the
stamp business, and hereafter the
service is expected to go ahead ex-
peuiuousiy ana satisiactonly. It is
certainly a great success."
