jToid Being Burned Out.
Abouti midnight last night Messrs.
Davlsou"& Cronln, the harnessmakers,
whopvere sleeping in their shop, were
aw'aicsnetl by a noise in the rear of the
buildup Both gentlemen quietly
arose wlh the intontion of investiga

a momeni'o difficulty in getting tho
back boov open, and when they suc
ceeded Ijt opening it a man was disap
pearing tin the darkness on the run.
Messr(r. Davison and Cronln discov

time to aicape being tho victims of an
incendiary Are. A largo pile of papers
had been,! placed under the floor and
against tee building and everything
was in reaalness for tho lighted match.

prospecting on the fiat for new water
chanaels furnishing an adequate sup

being also limited, they will probably
go to the northern part of town at tho
junction of Miller and Granite creeks
to develop a further supply. A well
twelve by twelve feet Is proposed at
this point and there are many who be
lieve an abundunt supply will be had.
Mr. J. S. Smith, of Phoenix, was res
cued Saturday eveulng from imminent
peril of death by thirst just this side of
tho Castle Creek hot springs junction.
He left Phoenix early yesterday morn
ing on a bicycle, intending to goto
Congress. When he reached the point
named ho was overcome with heat and
exhaustion and sat down beside the
railroad track. Realizing his condi
tion and danger he tied his handker
chief to a stick and stuck it up beside
the track. It was seen by the grow of
the passenger train which 'came in hwt
night, and they stopped and took the
man on board, cared for him and
brought blm to Phrcnlx.
