An Old Time Cattleman
W. A. Fiege of Dragoon, Ariz..
Closes Another Success
Several years ago W. A. Fiege
of Dragoon, Arizona, was one of
the "livewire" cattle buyers of
the country, but during recent
years he has laid off and has
been devoting his time to the
breeding business entirely, at
his excellent ranch in the Dra
goons. This season Mr. Fiege
took another whirl at the buying
game, and the old timers are
glad to pee him back in the
game, because he is a liberal
buyer and is never "niggardly"
when it comes to classing and
receiving stuff. All spring he
has been moving across the
country at a rapid rate in his big
Cadillac-eight, buying and get
ting several thousand head of
cattle ready to ship, This week
the last train went out for El
Paso. He then put on his Sun
day "store" clothes and wont to
his home in Arizona.
Mr. Fiege will be in the mar
ket again this fall and next
spring for many thousand cattle,
and his friends will be glad to
deal with him. Arizona Cattle
Dr. Douglas Dead.
Dr. James Douglas, who died
Monday' at his home in New
York, was one of the pioneers in
the development of this section
of the country.
Dr. Douglas was early identi
fied with the copper industry in
Arizona, and it was upon his re
port that the Copper Queen
mines at Bisbee were developed
by the Phelps-Dodge interests,
which development resulted in
the establishment at Bisbee of
what has long been known as
one of the richest, if -not the
richest, copper camps in the
world. The opening of the mines
at Hisbce was likewise respon
sible for the building up of the
city of Douglas, named in honor
of Dr. Douglas.
Despite his 80 years, Dr.
Douglas wa3 active until the day
of his death. He is survived by
his wife, and by his daughters,
Miss Elizabeth Douglas and Mrs.
Archibald Douglas, and by his
sons, James S., and Walter
Douglas. James S. Douglas ib
at present in France on duty with
the American Red Cross, while
Walter is in New York.

Soapweed Feeding Not Harmful
Agricultural College says: The
idea prevailed that the feeding
of the yucca or soapweed would
disarrange the stomach or di
gestive tract of the animal. On
the Jornado range"reserve in
Dona Ana county Mr. Turney fed
two steers' eighty to ninety days
exclusively on soapweéd and cot
tonseed meal. Both steers have
been killed and very carefully
examined by the college nutri
tion chemist and veterinarians,
and they found the digestive
tract in a most healthful and
normal condition. The meat was
of splendid flavor and good texture.
Both services next Sunday at
the Christian church will be

Soul's Anchor." This sermon is
especailly for the weary-worn
and discouraged man or woman,
either in the church or out. In

One of the prettiest weddings
of the season occurred Wednes

mother, Mrs. Eva Marshall, when
Rev. F. Gaylord Roberts, using
the ring ceremony, united in
holy bonds of matrimony Mr.
bertJE Dallas of Tucson,
Arizona, to Miss Thelma É.
Marshall of Lordsburg. Miss
Brown was the flower attendant.
Only a company of the select

invited and attended.
Many beautiful and useful

To The Trade:
In view of the fact that our government now requires unlimit
ed credit in order to prosecute the war, thereby curtailing com
mercial credits, it has become necessary' for us, under the prevail
ing unusual conditions to make a change in our terms all whole
sale firms throughout the country are selling their merchandise bn
very restricted terms. Under these circumstances we wish to
announce to the trade that, commencing August 1, our terms will
be STRICTLY CASH,
We regret the necessity that compels us to make this change
but believe you appreciate the fact that these abnormal conditions
are beyond our control.
In changing our terms to CASH we will be in a better position
to sell goods cheaper and give you better service. We feel con
fident we will have your full co-operation, thereby assisting the
government inits work.
