EL PASOANS HAVE
BREAK OVER MINE
Manager Is Ousted and New
One Elected by the
The meeting of the Texas-Arizona
Mining- company, held here last Wed
nesday, has created much comment
throughout the mining district of
southern Arizona. The company has
property near Dragoon, Ariz. The Co
chise County Press, of September 3 0, j
has a story about ihe outcome of tins
meeting, which resulted disastrously for
former manager Ben X. Williams, wno .

was succeeaea Dy J. u. juerrmii, mi. -
Former manager Williams, accord
ing to the report which appeared in the
Press, owned one of the largest blocks
of stock in the Cochise county mine
but did not have control. The stock
holders in the mine who live in El Paso,
arranged to vote the stock for Merrian
for manager against Williams. J.
Hawk, of Dougles, and Charles Brad
beck, of Dragoon, voted with what is
termed the "El Paso contingent," which
resulted in Merrian's selection as mana
ger of the mine.
Charles Goetz; another stockholder
living at Benson, stated that the former
manager of the Texas-Arizoa proper
ties left the meeting after he had been
defeated. The result of his feeling was
that he sold out his holdings in the
company which he located and helped
to organize, Goetz says, and will de
velop other properties in the same dis
trict. He is arranging to begin opera
tions on another mine further up in
the mountains adjoining what is known
as the Stroud property.
The mine which is owned by the
Texas-Arizona company, is to be de
veloped under the new management. It
has already produced several cars of
ore which sold here at a good profit.
The last shipment of 20 -tons netted the
company $2200, it assaying 125 ounces
of silver, $3 gold and 60 percent lead.

Everything was perfectly cooked and

John began to see the drift of the
little woman's questions. "Two," he
said, awkwardly, "the general servant
and the baby's nurse."
"And, yet," mused the wise little
lady, "things are not as well done as
they used to be. Strange, isn't it?
Don't be silly, John. Mary had an ex
cellent cook and well trained servants
to carry out her orders in the old days.
Now she has to do the best she can
with a second rate cook, who does
the waiting as well. She would indeed
be a -wizard if her meals were as good
as they used to be. When you can give
her as much money as she used to have
to keep house on, she will give you the
meals you used to enjoy."

The wise woman paused. Should she

about draughts) and showed her anx

The third afternoon he came home
from the office declaring he had a "high

E-r. Eldridge was Warren's physician
before his marriage. He was a suave,

and grave consideration which some
other physicians might not give.
But when Helen telephoned she was
told that Dr. Eldridge was away on a
two weeks' vacation, and had left his
practice in charge of a Dr. Braxton.
The Ttrusqne Physician.
Dr. Braxton came. He was a brusque,
plain-spoken man. very different from
the polite Dr. Eldridge. He had in
ferred from Helen's hurried and anx

one. And when he saw Warren, felt
his pulse, looked at hki tongue, he said
"Why, you needn't have sent for me.
