rate. Each tried to get in the stable
first. The younger brother reached
the door first and was climbing in

back out. The younger brother fell to
the ground and the older one fell

brother crawled from under Bud and

NO LEGAL. DISTRICT ATTORNEY.
The fact has recently been discov
ered that there is no such office as
that of district attorney Sn the fifty
first district. It all comes about in
this way. The office of district attor
ney is not a constitutional office, but
lias to be provided for by the legis
lature of the state. So far. the legis
lature has made no provision for the
office in the fifty-first district, and of
course until the office Is created, no
person can fill the position. "While the
functions of the office have heretofore
and are today, being exercised, still
there Is no such office. The fact was
until ft few days ago and
the credit for discovering it belongs to
a San Angelo lawyer. A dih nas wen
Introduced in the legislature to create
the office In this district.

tru bills. 36 of which are for felonies

ut of them. The McLennan county
graad Jurymen are level headed. They
knew that to kill a wart it must be
attacked at the roots.

number of them were afterwards re
jected at Houston. Those who were

the time they were accepted at Hous
ton and those who were rejected got
none. Now the adjutant general of the
1'nlted States has rendered a decision

er they were rejected at Houston or
not. The boys will take the necessary
steps to secure the pay.

STONE CUTTING MILL.
It is intended to build a mill at Ala
mogordo soon for cutting the building
stone taken from the quarries there
into proper size and shape for use as
window sills, door steps, etc. It has
now a good market and goes all over
the country back east until it conies in
to the closest competition with the
Indiana building stone and there it Is
at a disadvantage, as it is not cut to
the proper size and shape as the other
is before sending out. The starting
up of this mill will alter this and give
it a fair chance for competition."

A message received In Blsbee Fri
day morning gave the information that
Burt Alvord. the noted train robber,
and two Yaquis were in Douglas that
morning, visited a number of saloons
and burned a bix car at the station.
The message was sent from Douglas

the fugitives, who left toward the Chir
Icahua mountains. A posse of five was
sent from Blsbee and another was
made up and started from Tombstone.
As the outlaws had only a few hours

there would be a meeting and a battle
between the outlaws and vigilants. Al
vord stated at Douglas that he was will
ing to fight it out with the officers. It
is said that he was in Tucson several
hours one day previous to his appear
ance in Douglas.
BOUGHT 3000 GOATS.

nix from Kingman where he bought
3000 Angora goats, which he will turn
loose on the hills in the vicinity of
tne Arizona dam. The goats are known
as the Hardy flock. ' because Captain
Hardy started the collection of the
flock. Mr. Frazee said he anticipated
some objection to his taking the goats
to the locality of the dam on the part
of the farmers, who would fear that
the goats would 'drink too much of the
water which they want for irrigation

The Phoenix Gazette says that Phoe

residences and homes than any city

he mentions are pretty big and he
naturally presumes that they have nice
residences, but be has never seen El

WHAT A WHOPPER.
Judge William H. Barnes, of Phoe
nix, is accused of telling that a man
who was camping in 'the mountains in
Arizona was awakened from his sleep
by the music of a rattlesnake's tail. He
was wrapped in a heavy dark-colored
blanket and the snake sank its fangs
into the blanket and could not get
them out. The camper killed the snake

NEW APRIL FOOL.

He wrote to a friend in Phoenix and

MEETING EMPEROR WILLIAM.
Capt. Evans Tells About the Good
Times Hhe Had During the Celebra
tion at Kiel.
In the "Log of the Sailor" Rear Ad
miral Robley D. Evans tells of his
visit to Kiel in this week's Saturday
Evening Post, and in the course of it
he gives his impressions of Emperor
William. Below is an extract from it:
"For the purpose of entertaining his
naval guests the Emperor had built on
the land, near Holtnau. almost at the
Kiel entrance to the canal, a large
ship of the line. She was full shlp
I rigged, had all her yards acioss. and
her gun deck was beautifully decorat
ed for the dinner which was given on
the day following our arrival from
Hamburg. When the banquet was over
souvenir medals were presented to all
of us. and we retired for our cigars to
the upper deck, where all were pre
sented personally to his majesty and
exchanged a few pleasant words with
him. I stood near him during the time
he conversed with the French admiral
and his officers, waiting my turn to be
presented, and could not help being
impressed by his manner as well as by
that of the Frenchmen. They were all
ideally polite, but there was. on the
part of the emperor, a hearty feeling
of success which I did not observe in
the manner of the distinguished offl
cers who were to sail in the early
I morning in company with the Russian
fleet. When I was presented to him
the emperor gave me a cordial hand
shake, and kept others waiting quite
five minutes while he talked to me in
the most pleasant way. He had many
questions to ask me. which he said he
would expect me to answer before I
left Kiel. His whole manner to the
American officers was most cordial."

WHY DOES THE RHINOCEROS
HAVE A HORN ON ITS NOSE?
If the question were asked Why do
the rhinocerl grow their horns upon
the nose, instead of on the head, like
other mammals? the answer would
probably be that they require them for
root-digging and such like purposes as
well as for war. and the nasal position
renders them more generally useful
than if they were fixed on the-top of
the skull. At present the rhinoceros
is the only quadruped which has a
horn of this kind, but a study of fossil
mammals shows that he is the sole
survivor of a vast number of creatures
whose natural weapons were built on
the same general plan. In fact, in the
days of the rhinoceros's early fore
fathers, horns of this kind were prob
ably much more common than those
such as we see on the heads of oxen,
antelopes, and sheep. In the course
or ages the fashion in wearing horns
has undergone a radical change: but
the rhinoceros, who is essentially a
conservative beast, has stuck to the
older method. From "Animal Special
