loupes, the bride of the watermelon,
are hand In hand with it. They are
cheap enough for the poorest and good
onough for the richest, and may be had

Gold Vein Also Found by A.
Lafave, Who Has Ex
plored the Field.
There is a -wonderful country around
Parson in. the northeastern portion of
Gila, county. Arizona. It is a great
copper cauntry and also rich in gold,
besides it is a .fine cattle country,"
raid A. Lafave, who has been there
for the past four months, but who Is
now in El Paso. "Payson is on a trib
utary of the East Verde river, and
is at an elevation of 5200 feet. The
sold veins are fissures In granite, ,those
around Gun Creek are in slate- This
gold belt is' 20 miles square, with Pay
son as a. center. On the west side of

development work, and is showing up"

Preklstoric Ruins Aboand.
"There is much wonderful natural
scenerj- around Payson, including a
natural bridge holding up 40 acres ot
land, hut the most curious things are
the remains of buildings and cities of
remote antiquity, covered with the de
bris and dry silt. I believe that a high
ly cultivated race inhabited that coun
try many years .ago. It certainly is
older than Egypt, NJnevah or Babylon. I
have been familiar' with that country
over 30 years and have spent much
time in exploring the ruins. The build
ings are principally made of sandstone,
and show high architectural skill. My
belief in their" great age is founded on
the fact that I find in several places
an accumulation ( of earth ten or more
feet deep covering xulns, which has
been gathered, apparently, from the at
mosphere the dust of ages. The earth
is not the result of wash or drift from

Cotton Once Grown.
"In the walls T excavated I found
a box in which were cotton balls. At
the present time there is no cotton
growing In that country. This slight
circumstance leads me to believe that
those ancients cultivated , cotton.
"On another occasion a friend and
myself noting a seepage in a foothill
in Tonto basin, sank a shaft about 20
feet deep to develop wter, and un
earthed an' ancient well walled up
with masonry and, near it pottery of
exquqlsite design. In a sealed jar was
corn in good preservation. The soil
covering that well was an accumulation
of desert dust, which must have taken
centuries to have formed to such thick
ness. Ancient City Found.'"
"On the high plateaus of the Mazat
zal range a few thousand feet abovej
the Tonto basin, Is an ancient city
made of sandstone. Here, owing to its
altitude, the ruins are not covered with
earth like those below. These walls
show unmistakably' that both phalic
and sun worship prevailed, the former
being the oldest known religious wor
ship. These ruins are found over a
great area. The famous Casas Grandes
ruins, over 150 mile's distant, are doubt
less the work of the same people."
"The natural bridge I described was
really caused by a gradual deposit or
growth from the minerals of the Verde
river. It is not caused by the usual
process of erosion.' It is built upon the
same principal that stalagmites and
stalagtltes are formed. Everything
near It gradually turns to stone, as
exemplified in the 'petrified forests. I
found a child's leg and foot Imbedded
in a solid rock of siliclfled mud."

FIRE ATJTO SKIDS.

Machine Slightly Damaged.
Driver Smith Sustains
Failing to negotiate the curve at the
San Antonio and El Paso street corner,
the big red auto fire engine skidded
across the car tracks Thursday even
ing and turned over into an Inglorious
heap of tangled hose, broken lamps and
leaking gasoline. Ernest Smith, of'the
central station, was driving the big
machine In response to an alarm from
the LeRoy flats on Missouri street
when the accident occurred.
Chief Armstr6ng was sitting with the
driver when the engine went over, but
succeeded in jumping before the ma
chine hit the paving. Driver Smith
was not so fortunate and was held In
his seat by -Che wheel and brake lever,
and went over with the engine. He was
freed from his position and taken to
the office of Dr. John C. Schuller,
where an examination was made. It
was found 'that no bones had been
broken, but the fireman had been
With the assistance of the usual
crowd of uninvited volunteer firemen,
the engine was righted after the hose
had been removed from the bed and
was towed to the fire station by one
of the wagons. Smith was also taken
to the station in the chiefs buggy as
soon as he was-able to be moved.
The left lamp was smashed on the
auto engine, a gage glass broken on
the chemical tank and the seat broken
off. In addition, a considerable quan
tity "of red paint was scrached from the
rlhtside of the engine. It will have
to be1 put in the shop for repairs.

ROOSEVELT MAY XEVER
MAKE A POLITICAL SPEECH
New York, N. Y., Tune 24. "I don't
know that I shall ever make another
political speech," said Theodore Roose
velt Thursday evening, as he popped out
of his editorial office late in the after
noon, his collar wilted and his face red
from the heat. .
He saw a group of interviewers and
-stopped. They told him that his first
political utterance was awaited with
the greatest interest and when, please,
would he make it.
"I lhave no idea when I shall make a
political speech," he replied. "I shall
make no speech of anj' kind for two
months, and my first speeches in Kfan
sas City, dheyenne, Milwaukee and
Chicago will iave nothing to' do with
politics. I don't know that I shall ever
majce another political speech."
"What, never?" someone exclaimed.
"I don't say 'never,' " he corrected. ;
"I simply do not know."
On Tuesday he will leave for Cam

Plan Installing MacMnes on
Bonito Group, Near
A. H. Kidney, mining and metallur
gical engineer of New York, and Col.
L. W. Gitchell, - a prominent mining
engineer and jnine owner, also of New
York, were in El Paso Thursday night
on their way to CamD Bonito. in the
Santa Catalina mountains, 42 miles
north of Tucson, Ariz., where they go
to conduct experiments and-arrange for
the instillation of a mlling and con
centrating plant on the properties of
the Santo Bonito Mining company.
- These properties consist of a group
of 100 mining claims, some of which
have been developed and have a small
milling plant already in operation. The
developed claims are known as the
Bonito group, consisting of six full
sized claims, cut by a system of fissure
veins through granite, running all the
way from four to 25 feet In width and
carrying a variety of minerals. One
vein carries gold, silver and lead; an
other gold, silver and copper, and an
other carries scheelite or calcium tung
state and gold. This latter Is remark
able for the purity of its metallc con
tent, being free from Iron sulphides
or pther deleterious elements. The com
pany has already a market for all the
tungsen it can produce In the-Electro-Sletalurglcal
company at Niagara Falls,
whose representatives will join Messrs.
Kidney and Gitchell at the mines,
which are owned by Col. W. F. Cody
(Buffalo Bill), Col. Gitchell, John
Bridges and associates.
Mr. Kidney accompanies Col. Gitchell
as the representative' of the Behrend
Concentrator company of New York.
"This company has made very re
markable Improvements," said Mr. Kid
ney, "in dry and wet concentrations.
The various machines may be used sep
arately or in combination as may be
needed In some places. Both wet and
dry processes, or either as needed, are
used. Many ores, the coarser slzas of
which are applicable to dry concentra
tion which would involve sizes from
10 to 100 mesh can be worked on the
dry machine. The finer sizes which
pass a 100 mesh screen are automat
ically fed through a flotation system
which separates the floculent mineral
from the granular, If present, the same
being fed to a multiple concentrator,
thus affordlngthe very highest extrac
tion of the minerals. The multiple wet
concentration and flotation systems
are to be installed on the properties
of Cols. Cody and Gitchell.
"Col. Gitchell and I will return here
in a week and arrange with Mr. Small
to have the El Paso Foundry and Ma
chine company build the various ma-
chines to be installed."
