Katie S. Hattich Burned to Death by
One of the most painful accidents it
has ever been the Epitaph's sad duty to
chionicle occurred Thursday afternocn
about 2 o'clock in this city. It is the
old, old story of Kindling .1 fire with coil
oil, and a tale of the horrors of the death
is but a repetition of several that have
occuned in this very vicinity. The
victim this time is entitled to a more
generous sympathy than is ordinarily
given in such case, for she was a lovable
little girl, onl) 13 years and 8 months
old, Katie S. H.ittich by name, eldest
daughter of Mr. B. Hatiich, who resides
on Allen street, near Sixth. She little
knew the danger that lurked in the
deadly oil can as she innocently poured
the fluid upon the smouldering fuel. The
usual explosion occurred, throwing the
blazing oil over her clothing. She ran
for nearly a block down the street. The
scene was one which struck the lookers
on with horror, the flames reaching the
awnings above the fleeing child. As
soon as possible the by stunders secured
blankets and smouldered the fire, but not
until neatly all the clothing was burned
off the little girl and her flesh blistered
from head to foot. The unfortunate child
was taken in charge by loving fiiends,
and everything possible was done to
allay her sullering, but death came to
her relief about 9 o'clock in the even
ing. Mrs. Hattich, the mother of the
victim, was in San Francisco, but will
be here to-morrow to attend the funeral,
which takes place from the Methodist
churck on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
Katie was a member of the Methodist
Sunday school and was dearly beloved
by teachers and scholars, in fact, by all
who knew her. Her brother, Willie, is
employed in the Epitaph office. The
family have the most heartfelt sympathy
of the entire community in their sad
DEAGGED TO DEATH.
The Fatal Accident Which Bofell Willie
One of the most heart rending acci
dents it has been our duty to chronicle,
befell the nine year old son of our towns
man, Mr. S. R. McFarland. This gen
tleman was in Pantano yesterday, in the
discharge of his duties, and was accom
panied by Willie. While there the hd
was placed upon a horse which made a
few turns in the vicinity quite quietly,
but at last quickened his pace while sorie
distance from the lookers on, among
whom was his father, and before they could
assist him, was thrown, his foot remain
ing in the stirrup, in which position he
was dragged to death in the sight of his
agonized parent, who was powerless to
render hiin any assistance until toolatj.
All too late indeed, it was, although
but a few short minutes, when the horror
stricken group caught the horse and ex
tracted the child. He was a painful
sight to witness. The scalp torn com
pletely from his head, and skull cracked;
arms broken and thigh terribly mutilated.
Tender hands removed him but life was
Willie was an uncommonly bright lad,
one of those that we pick out and re

will long be remembered and deplored.

Several More Murders in the Pleasant
T. D. Tewksbury arrived in town to
day from the notorious Pleasant valley
country, and with him comes the news
of still further depredations and mur
ders there. From what can be learned
of the developments of the past few days,
it would appear that at least two and
probable more men have met death with
their boots on. The last two to meet
their end are John Graham and Ed.
Tewksbury. Definite information of the
immediate circumstances leading to the
death of Graham are lacking, except th.it
it was at the hands of Tewksbury.
Tewksbury, however, was "shot while re
sisting arrest by Sheriff Mulvenon. As
to who the others were, who were killed,
or how many, the reporter was unable to
learn on good authority, although he is
satisfied from the remarks of those who
could tell, that at least five have come to
the end of their rope. The total number
now supposed to have been killed in
connection with the feuds of that region
are eleven, all in little more than a week.
Sheriff Mulvenon, of Yavapai county,
is now in that region with a pnsse of
deputies, and he will be a public bene
factor if he succeeds in exterminatir.g
the whole gang.
Marshal Wells left on the Prescott
stage to-day for the scene 'of the massa

all parties living in the Tonto Basin and

will no doubt render valuable assistance.

ownership of the lot.
The recent rains have put chloriders
to much trouble in many places by
wetting the ore.
The Magpie mine, owned by Barney
McArdle, is well located, and the 45-foot
shaft shows good ore.
The Herald mine, owned by Dr.
Handy and others, of Tucson, is one of
the most promising prospects in this
camp. With proper development there
is a mine sure. The same may be said

The same activity continues at the

went through the fire proves not to have
been injured as badly as was thought.
In the Bunker Hill the drift on the

into Mammoth ground. On the fourth
level the drift towards No. 1 shaft is
within 40 feet of making connection,
following a nice streak of ore. Last

to the Billings' smelter at Socorro.

Away Go the Cattle.
Many are finding it necessary to sell
their cattle. Some arc selling all they
have. A fine herd of thoroughbreds
within our knowledge, was sold last week
at ruinously low prices. But it was
better so, than to attempt to buy feed
and carry them through the winter. In
all this failure of the hay crop, there is
now and then a section that has escaped,
and we desire to call the attention of
those who can keep more cattle than
they have, that now is the time to buy.
Cattle can be bought for nearly nothing,
whenever a man finds that he cannot
carry his herd through the winter. It is
an ill wind that blows no one any good,
and those who are unfortunate will be
glad to know that anybody is in a posi
tion to enjoy prosperity.
But results will not be as bad to the
average farmer and stock-raiser as at
first they may seem. As recently men
tioned by us, the lessening of the num
ber of cattle must eventually raise the
price of cattle and the products of the
dairy. It is always well to see the
lights as well as the shadows of every
picture on which we look. Taking years
together, we all enjoy a pretty fair pros
perity. One crop may fail this year,
or all crops may fail, but the next year
or year after we will enjoy more than
usual prosperity in some direction. The
average of ten years of industry and good
nianage.iient is usually satisfactory, all
things considred. Adversity is not
without its benefits anyhow . It teaches

This is one of the signs of the times,
that the great range industry of the past
is changing its methods and rearranging

tract to suit changcd'conditions or en
tirely go out. Last year and the present
season, all down the line to the Gulf,

has been sent to the markets regardless
of sex, future usefulness or previous con
dition. All these things count, and are
of vivid interest both to the cattle raisers
and the consumers of beef. They mean
that within a period, certainly no farther
removed than three years, there is to be
an awakening to the fact that the beef
supply is short.
The above extract is from the Texas
Panhandle, published at Mobeetie, Tex
as, in the heart of the range country and
contains information, which confirms what
has been stated in thesccolumns from time
to time for many months. While so
much has been said and written in re
gard to the cause of the low prices paid
for cattle and there have been so many
doctors who knew what medicine should
be administered to the patient, there has
not been, nor will there be, any benefit
accruing therefrom, as far as cattle prices
are concerned. Medicine is prescribed
for the man with an ailment to assist the
natural functions in reassuming control,
and on the same principal the market for
any commodity can only improve when
the excessive supply is reduced. In the
present instance the cause of the depres
sion is attributed to a supply is reduced
by the process mentioned in the extract
from the Mobeetie, Texas, Panhandle,
then there will be a return to former
prices or figures approximating thereto.
No doubt the same state of things exists
elsewhere, not only in the range country
but with domestic cattle, in fact it is
demonstrated by the number of cows and
calves which are being shipped to mar
ket. The prediction is made, that there will
be better prices for cattle next year and
still better the year after, and unless all
signs fail such will undoubtedly be the
case. The forces are at work .
