JOE RYAN. - Manager
Charlie Cox, who was returning to
Phoonix after n long nbsonco, lind an
oneountor with a mountain lion the
other day, bays tho Republican. Mr.
Cox nnd two other young men stnrtcd
frOin Globo on foot for Phoenix, i-oming
by tho way of Roosevelt. Arriving
thoro one of tho party decided to stay
nnd Mr. Cox and his romaining com
paitiou t-et out with a procession of oil
wagons for Mesa. At Fish Creek hill
tho wngons wont into camp for tho day,
but Mr. Cox being desirous of reaching
Phoenix without dolay pushed on on
Passing Tortilla Flats ho mounted
tho summit and was passing down into
a draw on this sido when 1)0 heard a
scream which elovated his hat. Ho had
brought a twenty-two ritlo with him as
far as Tortilla Flats, where a govern
ment omployo offered him $12 for it.
That, ho thought, was moio than ho
could get for it anywhoro else in the
United States. Ho could buy a hotter
gun for less money in Phoonix. So ho
sold it, but when ho heard that scroam
ho woudl have paid $40 for tho weapon.
Ho had not oven a pocket knife.
Ho picked a couple of rocks and
threw them in tho direction of tho
ic renin and heard a scrambling in tho
bushes. Then tho scroam was repeated
a littlo behind him and looking over his
shoulder ho saw tho lion standing not
moro than thirty feet in his rear with
his head thrown up, snuffing tho air liko
a horso. Ho also looked in the moon
light almost as big as a horse.
Mr. Cox hit tho trail, and for the
next milo or two ho attained a speed
which ho thinks has never been stir
passed. Ho finally brought up at
Ware's place, where ho spout tho night.
Mr. Cox loft hero soveral years ago
and went to Globo about the timo that
camp was entering upon its great
boom. Ho remained there until the
San Francisco fire, when ho went to hat
city to take part in its reconstruction.
After that he returned to Globo and
went into tho business of contracting,
which ho followed successfully until tho
lato depression set in.
He is of the- opinion that it will not
bo long until things will bo there as
they need to be, but now the people
aro pretty long-faced. It was a great
relief for him to get among the broad

Worked Both Ways.
Thore'is a young nrfist in Washing
ton who clashes himself as of tho im
pressionistic school, and who, boing
somewhat out in drawing, generally
makes up for his lack of technique by
spreading color recklessly and counting
ou distnnco for his effect.
At an amateur exhibition he once
hung one of his most extraordinary
"Well," said a friend, whom tho
artist had taken to seo his work. "I
don 't want to flatter you, old chap, but
that is far and away the best stuff you
have ever done. I congratulato jou."
Much pleased, tho artist was receiv
ing the compliment with "becoming mod
esty, when ho chanced again to glance
at the picture and turned very rod.
The committco had hung it upside down.
Hurrying to the head of the com
mittco he was about to launch into a
loud complaint, when he was informed
of the good news that an hoqr beforo

original price mark had been $19.
Cost of Living in Switscrland.
Geneva, until about twenty years
ago had the reputation of being a cheap
placo in which to live. By degrees it
has becomo more and moro expensive,
until the point hns been reached where
a prominent woman who spends her
wintors in New York and her summers
here has made the assertion that tho
necessaries of lifo cost moro in Genova
than they do in Now York. The in
crcaso in tho cost of theso necessaries
was already marked in tho years 1901
and 1905, but tho customs tariff which
wont into effect January 1, 1900, gave
a now impulse to tho advance.
There aro very fow things that have
not advanced in price. Bread, meat,
wine and chocolate aro all on the in
croaso. Milk, butter and eggs have
reached prices ."never known Tjcfora
Nearly everything boing dearer, shop
kcopors, shoemakers, laundresses, har
bors, fuel dealers, all follow tho move
ment with higher rates. Cotton man
ufactures aro almost tho only articles
that nro cheaper. Tho crops have been
far under tho average this year both
in quantity and quality, owing to tho
cold season, and this hns a tendency
to incrcaso prices. Daily Consular

Crookedcst Railroad in tho World.
Grading is in progress in East Los
Angeles on tho crookedcst railroad in
the world. Compared with it tho fa
mous Mount Tamalpais road, which now
hns tho squirming record, is as straight
as a Mcxicnn's hair.
It will take two miles of track to
cover a stretch not moro than thrco
blocks running north and south, nnd
not moro than that running cast and
west. It is claimed by engineers that
thero will not bo a single straight rail
in mo iwo inwes or trncK; every ono
will bo curved. Tho road is designed
as an extension to tho Grifllin avonuo
streot railroad line, and will onen un

What Ho Wanted.

Tho celebrated Arborn license case
has probably been settled, tho city bo
ing givon tho decision on demurrer last
Wednesday by Judge Donn at Tomb
stone, says tho Iteview. As it will bo
romembered, this case has been strcnu
ously fought on every point by tho do
fondant, who is at presont conducting
a barber shop at 18 Browery gulch.
Tho case originated somo timo ngo
with tho City of Bisbeo bringing suit
against Robert Arborn for conducting
a barber shop without securing a li
conbo of $5 per chair. Judge Donn
decided that the prosecution should bo
in tho nanio of tho territory instead of
tho city and at that time intimated that
tho justices had no jurisdiction in cases
of violation of tho city ordinances, but
it wns not necessary for him to givo a
judicial decision on tho point and ho did
not do so. Tho present case was based
on further violations of tho city ordin
ance for doing business without a li
censo and wns brought in tho nanio of
tho territory. Tho principal question
argued by tho dofondant was that under
tho statuto tho justice did not have the
jurisdiction, but tho court which is seen
jjy tho decision, has held otherwise.
This enso applies to violations of tho
license ordinnnco nnd so far as tho for
mer intimntion of lack of jurisdiction
is concerned, amounts to a reversal.
When seen on tho matter, City At
torney Ncalo said: "In cases of vio
lations of other ordinances which tho
city hns power to pass and dcclaro mis
demeanors, tho prosecution will still be
in tho nnmo of tho tcrrtiory of Arizonn,
but tho fines will bo collected by the
city and paid into tho city treasury.
"Tho ruling of tho court was only
on the domurrer. flic enso must be
formally tried and submitted, and as
thero is no disputo about tho facts tho
present decision sottlcs tho mnttcr."
This caso was tried twice in tho jus
tico courts and twico nppealed. In tho
second case tho jurisdiction was sus
tained. The decision is in accord with
ono recently rendered by Judge Navo
It will bo romembered that tho last
caso was tried beforo Judge Burdick
in tho first week in August, being con
tinued from day to day until tho 14th,
when Arborn was fined $5. Notice of
appeal wns filed the same day.

The janitor of a small church on" tho
South Sido raises a few chickens in
a small cnclosuro in his back yard. Tho
eggs of theso he sells to somo members
of tho church in which ho works.
Last Saturday ono of his customers
asked him if ho could spare a dozen
eggs within tho next two or thrco days.
"Oh, yes, ma'am," replied tho jan
itor; "I'll bring you a dozen fresh ones
"Oh, no," protested tho housewife;
"I shouldn't want you to bring them on
Sunday not on Sunday, John."
"Well," replied John, "all right,
ma'nm, if you say so; but it don't
make no difference to tho hens." Har
"It's awful trying, this catering to
a sick girl," Mrs. Douglas confessed to
tho friendly visitor who had called to

deep sigh. "I'm that put to it to got
somothing that she'll cat with a relish,

pathetic, and thus encouraged, Mrs.
Douglas went on.
"Only yesterday," sho said. "I cot
her a pork chop and fivo cents worth'of
marshmallows for her dinner, nnd if
you'll believe mo she turned up her
noso an' said sho couldn't cat a bite."
Shortly after ;i now administration
took hold of a well-known southorn rail
road a great number of claims woro
prcforred against tho company on ac
count of horses and cattlo boing killed

matters worse, it appeared that ovcrv
