THE MASaUERADE BALL.
Held In Jabobson's Hull Last Friday
Kvenlng'. Pew Masqueri.dors on Account
of the italn.
Owing to tho heavy rainfall at
7:80 last Friday ovening, many
who contemplated attending tho
masquorado ball did not venturo
forth, and in consequenco tho attendance
was not as largo as was
oxpocted. However, at about 8:15
tho rain subsided, and a small number
who enjoy tripping tho light
fantastic too, and tho attraction of
a masquorado, began to gather at
tho hall. It was rathor late when
dancing began, but tho scarcity of
participants in masks did not do-
tor thoso present from having an
cnjoyablo timo. "Wo havo not tho
spaco to describe tho various

tho compliment paid us by
Misses Maggio Sniddon and Abbte
Lewis, two of Safford's accomplished

tumo was of palo bluo material,
decorated with tho Guardian's
head lino and motto. On tho lower
front of tho skirt was a tastily
arrangod pyramid with tho words
"Graham Guardian" and showing
tho dollar of 1873. On her slip-
pors wero small strips of white ma
terial on which was printed "lb to 1"
whilo hanging at hor sido was a
card trimmed with laco bearing our
motto of freo coinage.
Tho costumo worn by Miss
Lowis was trimmed in its ontinty
with Guardians and presented a
nico appearance. Tho entire
of tho gown was trimmed with
Guardian head lines, and tho manner
in which thoy wore arranged,
showed that tasto and skill was
brought to bear in proparing tho
suit. Tho Guardian tender its
thanks to tho two young ladies.
After tho masks woro removed,
an intermission was given during
which timo tho usual "did you

Mr. Bdnjamin Pool, an agtd and

last Friday ovening forty miles
west of Los "Vegas, Now Mexico.
Mr. Peel accompanied by his wife
and several friends wero enrouto to
"Utah to pay his daughter, who resides
at Bountiful, Davis county,
a visit, and shortly after leaving
Albuquerque, on tho Santa Fo railroad,
Mr. Peel was noticed leaving
his seat, appearently for tho purpose
of getting a drink of water.
No attention was paid to his actions
at that particular timo, but
Mrs. Porter, who was ono of tho
party, looking in tho direction ho
had taken, saw him opcntho door
leading to tho front platform of
tho coach, and go out, shutting tho
door very quickly after him. On
seeing him go out Mrs. Porter immediately
went to tho door and
looked out, but Mr. Pool was nowhere
to bo seon, being considerably
frightened, sho immediately
summoned Mr. A. H. Bennett, who
also wont out on tho platform to
look for him. Seeing nothing of
Mr. Pool, Mr. Bennett hurredily
found tho conductor, and informed
him that a man had fallen off. Tho
train was stopped at once and a
party wont back to search for tho
body, which they found lying beside
tho track, quite dead.
indeed, was tho griof of his
aged wifo when thoy returned with
tho body of her dead husband, who
but a few moments previous had
boon alivo and in tho best of health.
. It is supposed that when Mr.
Peel fell from tho train ho struck
on his head, as a largo gash of considerable
length was found thoro.
No other injuries of consequenco
woro found on tho body and concussion
of the brain was tho probable
causo of death.
Tho bod)' was taken on to Los
Vegas and then returned to Bowio
on tho next west-bound 'train,
whero it was met by his two sons
Benjamin and Bobert. Benjamin
brought his mother to Safford in a
buggy whilo Bobert remained with
tho corpse. Tho body was brought
to Safford yesterday and cntormont
took placo in tho Layton cemetery.
Benjamin Pool was born in England
in tho year 1825, and was 70

Half Mile Wide.
What has been tho heavest rain
fall in over five years visited this
section last Friday evening and
continued until Monday morning,
doing considerable damage, and
raising tho Gila river to within five
feet as high as tho memorable flood
of 1889. Tho hardest part of tho
rain was on Saturday night, causing
tho banks of numerous ditches
to break and flooding all tho streots
of town,- some being under water
from two to three feet. All day
Sunday a perfect torront of water
rushed down Graham street and
fpund an out-let in tho street leading
to Thatcher, filling it with
water for a distanco of nearly three
miles, at somo places it being four
feet deep. Travel for a fow days
was nearly impossible. Tho rain
also caused considerable damago to
the hay crop. Mr. William Beebo
will probably loso twenty acres,
whilo tho loss to Mr. Peter Anderson
will not reach as much. Various
reports of losses to farmers
residing close to tho river havo
reached us. The G. V. G. & N.
Railroad has been washed out in
many places and for six days it
was impossible to reach Bowie
station by rail. Largo gangs of
men aro at work reparing tho Tolfd
bed, but tho washouts havo been
so extensivo that it will require
considerable timo to repair it. At
present it is only being fixed up in
such a manner as will allow tho
train to cross in safety.
Tho telegraph lino was struck
by lightning during a heavy thun
der storm, several posts being torn
from tho ground and tho wire damaged
to a considerable oxtont.

reason in calling citizens from this
valley to Pervo as jurors in a court
two hundred miles distant, on
thirty-six hours notice, but tho
average individual cannot seo it.
It is a hardship under any circumstances
to bo compelled to go so
far to attend court and as a matter
of right and justico it would seem

In tho jail at Orovillois Thomas
Laughcy, alias Locklin, who is be
lieved to bo tho murderer of Arthur
Meyers. On tho 30th of last
October Meyers was driving a stage
near Nevada city, when a lono
highwayman held up the stage and
demanded tho box, Meyers did"
not obey at onco and tho highwayman
fired, killing him instantly.
Detectives traced tho murderer all
over Northern California, bufe
failed to find him, although a reward
of 52,000 was offered. Two-months
ago Laughty was arrested
in Chico on a chargo of
and pleaded guilty and was sen
tenced to 90 da'S in the county-
jail. Four weeks ago his cell mate
George Evans, heard him mutterr
ing in his sleep:
"1 shot Arthur Meyers, and if L
don't get that old in the bushes
there, ho will get mo."
Evans thought ho had tho mur
derer and spent two weeks in!
questioning Locklin. Evans said
"You should bo moro careful
what you say in your sleep, for yovr
might tell things about yourself
you don't want others to know."
From that time Laughty feared
Evans. For nearly a week ho was
in a terrible state of excitement,
and day and night walked up and
down his cell without sleeping. At
last ho picked a quarrel ' with.
Evans, but tho jailer sepcrated
them. Soon after this six of tho
prisoners were sitting together-when
"I wonder if a murderer could ba
hanged by what he might say in
his slccprIku.ow tho murdorer of
Arthur Meyers, and could put my
hands on him." -.
Laughty, who was bohind Evans-'
in a fit of rage, grabbed up a spittoon
and struck him a heavy blow
on tho head. Tho other prisoners
stopped tho fight. Evans then,
told Under Sheriff Guidory and
Sheriff Wilson what ho had heard.
Thoy found further proofs of his
guilt, and as soon as Laughty'a -term
expires ho will bo taken to 7

THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE
now an Important Discovery Was Made lies
Elias Howe almost beggared
himself before ho discovorod where
tho oyo of tho needle of a sowing:
machino should bo located. His
original idea was to follow the
model of tho eye at tho heel. It
never occurred to him that it should
be placed near tho point, and ho
might havoNfailed altogether if he
had not dreamed ho was building a
sowing machino for a savago kingr .
in a strange country. Just as in
his actual waking experience, ho
was rather perplexed about tho
needle's oyo. Ho thought tho king;
gavo him twenty-four hours to com
plete a machino and mate it sow.
If not finished in that time, death. '
was to bo tho punishment. How'o
worked and worked and puzzled.
and puzzled, and finally gavo it up.
Then ho thought ho was taken out
to bo executed. He noticod that
tho warriors carried spears that
wero pierced ncartho head. Instantly
camo tho solution of tho
difficulty, and whilo tho inventor
was begging for timo
he awoke. It was four o'clock in
tho morning. He jumped out of
bed, ran to his workshop, and by
9 a needle with tho eye at tho
point had been rudely modeled.
After that it was easy. This is- a
true store of an important incident
in tho invention of the sewing machine.
