little clothing. Ou Tuesday, Novem

Couuors tells a terrible story of suf-
feiingaud privation during the twen
ty six days of his being lost to the
woild. At the time of his sudden dis
appearance he sa) s he must have bceu
temporarily insane, and as nearly as
lie can remember must hao lcmained
in that condition for fully livu days,
dining which time ho lias no recollec
tion of his waudeiings. Ou returning
to his senses he found himself in the
mountains with no idea of his location
or of the direction to take to reach a
human . habitation. He wandered
through cactus, over lock, in his bare
feet, subsisting on aeoins, waluiitsand
piiekly pear, the latter furnishing him
bjtli food and til ink. He s:i)s that he
was sick aud unable to travel for about
uine dajs sifter recovering his senses.
Ou Tuesday lie had about given up in
despair and was about to lie down and
dio when an Indian came in sight.

succeeded in getting him to take him

Looks Like Murder.
Three Iudians are now being held iu
tho county jail on a charge of murder,
and it looks rery much as though the
charge would be proven against them.
1 he groundwork of the charge came
out In a quarrel among tho Indians
over tho division of monej', and the
story told by Indian Kate, one of the
parties to tho quarrel, is as follows:
List wiuter an Indian commonly
called "Tho Squaw" found the body of
a white man at Nobman's Spring,
twelve miles from Hack berry. The
body was nude and tho flesh nearly
rotted away from thoboues. A search
brought to light the man's pantaloon
under a bush somo distanco from the
bod'. In the pockets of tho panta
loous was fouud a quantity of silver
aud a large roll of greenbacks. Tho
Indian took tho mouey, hut did not
report the (iuding of the remains, as is
usual with the Iudians in such cases.
Being afraid to spend tho money in
Hackberry, The Squaw gave 150 to
Kate to take to Kingman to get silver
for it. Kate took tho money and
gambled it away, aud when he re
turned to Hackberry the old Indian
aud his sous had a uolent quarrel with
him over the cash he had failed to
bring back. Sheriff Itosborough ar
rested the Indians and they are iu jail
awaiting the result of the investigation
now iu progress. Tho skull, verte
brae aud many other bones of the un
fortunate man have beeu found near
the spiing, and an inquest will be held.
Nothing lias yet boon found to disclose
the dead mail's identity. The secrecy
maintained by tho Iudians lead tho
officers to believe that the man was
murdered. No ouo remembers of any
disappearance during tho past winter,
and it will probably remain a secret as
to the dead mail's identity. Mohave
Miss Wllklns' New "Types."
Mary E. Wilkins has done something
new iu tho piece of work just com
pleted and given by her to-the "Ladies'
Homo Journal" for publication. It Is
a seiies of "Neighborhood Types."
These "types" are the most unique
characters, and are fouud iu a sup
posed New England village. To the
portrayal of each "13 po" Miss Wilkins
devotes a separate sketch. Thus she
pictures a strikiug character in "The
Wise Man of tho Village;" one of '.he
most natural of children in "Tho Vil
lage Ruuaway," a familiar figure in
"Tho Neat Woman of tho Town," with
threo othcr'characters equally distinct.
There are six "types," aud all are

a prisoner iu tho county jail, who is
of tho opinion that all of the inmates
aro in jail for their first offense:

And without lilm thcro are ten,
For thelr.flrst offense.
There Is Frank of cofTco fame,

For Ills first offense?

For Ida first offense.
There Is Tex from Flagstaff here,

For Ills first offense.
There's tho train-wrecking "nigger,"
As near as I can figger,
For his first offenso.
There's the greaser of Bravo Pluck,
Ho will bung if be has luck,
For bis first offense.
And tho Kid, you sure can guess.
At the butcher's made a mess,
Of his first offense.
And the others, for petty light,
Sentenced to serve both day and night,

They go out. I don't know when.
For their first offense.
As for mo, I ought to roast,
For these lines, It Is my boast,

About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
there was au alarm of fire, aud by tho
smoku the lire was located in the sec
ond story of the Bashford-Burmister
business block. Windows were broken
open aud tho lire extinguished by
buckets of water. Some bundles of
buruing overalls and corduroys wcro
thrown from the windows into the
street. The damage was small. As
the location of the house is contral a
crowd of people were on hand at tho
first alarm. The origin of the -fire is
only a matter- of conjecture. P. L.

his right hand by thrusting his fist
