One satisfaction in giving
Scott's Emulsion to children is
they never object to it. The
fact is, they soon become fond
of it. Another satisfaction Is
because it will make them
plump, and give them growth
and prosperity. It should be
given to all children who are
too thin, or too pale. It does
not make them over-fit, but
It strengthens the digestive
organs and the nerves, and fur
nishes material for rich blcod.

The firemen of Phenix held a picnic
yesterday at Mosa City. On tho re
turn trip a number of young men
were standing on tho steps of the
passengor coach swinging outward

tho number engaged in this pas

Govornor Frauklin has offered a
roward of SoOO for the apprehension
of Chacon, the Graham county mur
derer, who escaped from jail at Sol
omonvillo rocentlv. The Phenix Re
publican very aptly says that "it is
by no mef.D3 likely that either the
county of Graham or tho territory
will ever hare cause to regret the
generous rewards offered, for tbe
chances are a thousand to one that
they will not have to bo paid. Cha
con is uo doubt iu Mexico, but if he
is not he is in concealment by his
friends. A reward is often sufficient
to induce Americans to denounce
friends fo- tho sake of getting it.
For one reason or another Mexicans
aro not so easily induced to be
trayal." The Episcopal Sunday school will
give a picnic Wednesday at Wing's
G anito Dells ranch. Toam will

It is hoped as many parents as pos

000,000,000 gallon reservoir full of
water would bo of no a rail at a fire
if it were shut out of the mains.
