Firo completely destroyed the
saloon, with all its contents, nJ
tie stables and sheds ownod by
Marshal & Foster at Pima last
Thursday night. The firo is sup
posed to bo tho work of a firo bug,
and originated in tho littlo lumber
store room at tho back of tho main
building.
Tli6 loss will reach more than a
thousand dollars, without ono cent
of insurance.
Ofcourso it is not positively
known that an incondiary was the
originator of tho firo, but there
aro strong reasons to beliovo that
it was, and if it can bo traced home
it will undoubtedly become very
costly to tho porpetrators.
A fire bug is a dangerous person
in any place, no matter what
kind of property ho may destroy.
Ho is a fiend in whoso presence no
ono is safe. Ho not only destroys
tho property of his enemy, but endangers
tho livos and property of
the wholo community.

THE CHURCHES OF ARIZONA.
A Flattering Shotrtng of the Territory's
Kcctfrtasttcal Side.
Whilo Arizona's ratio of churches
and thereto does not
compare with those of older settled
communities, it must not bo forgotten
that it is but a few years
since this territory was under tho
control of tho Indian, and that a
largo part of tho population has
but recently como and established
homes, and that in a measure this
population is not yet moulded and
fixed to their now conditions. Not
withstanding all this our church
interest aro making oncouraging
progress. Thcro aro moro than
HF church edifices, several denominational,
educational and
other institutions, which evidences
the fact that -our people havo
ferought with 'them from their
bomes tho teaeliings and religious
convictions of 'iheir fathers.

Carpet Bag "Jiu
The carpet rag bee, which was
held at tho residence of Mr. and
Mrs. William Nelson, at Layton,
last Monday ovening was a complete
success. Carpet rags and
sowers were plenty, and about 10:30
when each had sowed tho required
amount, coffee and cake wore
served. Tho remainder of the
evening was spent m vocal and
instrumental music. All who were
present report an enjoyable time,
and pronounco Mrs. Nolson an
accomplished hostesss.
DENTISTRY.
All parties desiring tho servicos
of Dr. M. E. Brenner will please
call at onco as ho is now able to
work, thanks to tho medical skill
of Dr. Porter. Ho will start for
Globe on or about tho 1st of Nov.
to bo absent for some time.
A CHINESE TRIAL.
The Mode of Trying Those Kngagedln the
Massacre of Missionaries In China.
When tho court is ready tho accused
man is brought in handcuffed.
Ho it invariably filthy in appearance,
and has tho wild and
ghastly look of a starved man,
which ho really is.
Tho prisoner opens tho proceedings
by swearing ho was nowhore
near tho sceno of the massacre, and
then tho torture begins. Tho man
is first compelled to kneol with bare
knees upon a coil of chain. His
head is dragged back and his pigtail
fastened to a rack high above
his head. Tho polo is thon thrust
across his legs and two soldiers
stand on each end, crushing tho
wretch's knees into the coil of
chain. Tho British Consul could
not stand this method of extracting
testimony, and insisted that it
be stopped. This was dono as far
as proceedings in tho courtroom
were concerned, but for an hour
afterwards tho shrieks of tho tormented
prisoners could bo beard
coining Iron an adjacent room,
where tho torture was continued.
When tho magistrate wanted to
hear the confession of the tortured
man, tho prisoner was brought
back into tho courtroom. If he
held back his confession, a threat
to resume torture was usually sufficient
to causo him to tell all ho
knew. Besides tho torture described,
tho prisionors were beaten
with bamboo sticks until their
yells wore horrible to hear. Ono
prisoner appeared in tho courtroom
unable to kneel because his knees
had been broken by chain links
and his thighs had been lacerated
by strokes of tho bamboo rods.
In the midst of sueh misery,
cakes, fruit, tea and wines were
served and partaken of by tho
native officers, who could not understand
why tho foreigners present
pushed their delicacies aside,
refusing to touch them. Tho correspondent
declares that tho
powers ought to demand -justice
withoal torture, reaching a mandarin
as promptly as a man who
works in a field. Tho wholo busi
ness, ho says, lies at tho door of
corrupt ofiiccrs.
m
An Art Class.
Among tho enterprises which deserves
special mention is tho Art
class which is being organized by
Mrs. W. D. Frcnch,and all those
who havo tasto or talent for oil
paintings, tapestry and decorative
work should call on her at tho
residence of Mrs. P. Sullivan in
ford. Mrs. French is an artist of
moro than ordinary ability, having
studied undor tho best masters in
Chicago and San Francisco. All
those who desiro to tako instructions
in art aro requested to call
at her residence and as soon as convenient
tho general class will meet.
If a sufficient number of pupils can
bo obtained in Solomonvillo Mrs.
French will mako regular trips to
that place. This is a rare opportunity
for tho people of tho valley,
and as tho price of instructions
will be very reasonable, all who
can possible afford to take advantage
of it should do so and acquire
a knowledge of decorative
paintings, Etc.
m
Sentenced For Life.
The Mexican who held up tho
Casa Grand and Florenco stage on
tho 3d inst. at Dry Lake about
half way between Florence and
Casa Grande, was captured by U.
S. Deputy Marshal Sid Barleson,
Felix Mayhow and Wm. Stiles,
taken to Florence, indicted by the
grand jury, tried by jury and given
a life sentenco in the short spaco of
eight days. This is tho shortest
work on record in the Territory
and reflects great credit on tho officers
who had tho caso in chargo,
and will no doubt havo a tendency
to deter peoplo who are inclined
to go into the stage robbing business.

NOTICE.
The United States Land Laws
read that all Land Notices must

A SCHEME.
Dy the Florence Canal to Fleece
th People of Florence of their Hard
Earned Means.
Tho people of Florenco and the
farmers in this vicinity are in
troublo over tho water for irrigation
purposes. It seems that some
years ago tho Florenco canal com
pany was formed and built what
was known as tho Florenco canal,
but which has since been changed
to tho Casa Grand valley canal, to
which nearly all the smaller canals
surrendered their rights in luo of
which tho canal company agreed
by written contract to furnish
water to tho consumers at a stipulated
price. But recently tho
canal company has become dissatisfied
with their contract, think
ing they can bleed the peoplo for
more money, and proposo to no
longer furnish water undor tho old
agreement, but to formulato a new
contract, tho terms of which will
incrcaso tho revenue of tho company
to double tho amount it has
received in tho past. Tho people,
however, do not proposo to submit,
and therefore on the 6th inst. a
largo numbor of the citizens of tho
city and farmers of tho country
mot in a meeting, called for tho
purpose to adopt some means of
defending their rights. About
8000 water rights wore represented
and attorneys were employed
to fight the case to a finish.
This experience of tho Florence
people should bo a valuable lesson
to tho peoplo of Graham county,
who, at tho present timo own their
own canals do their own work and
aro independent of any corpora
tion or monopoly. Tho peoplo of
Florence will no doubt bo com
polled to pay out thousands of dollars
to defend their rights, and
then, perhaps, loose them in tho
end.
Tho great mistake tho people of
Floronce made was m allowinrr a
corporation to get them into pflwer
in the
people oi riorence win como out
victorious in tho ficht for their
rights.

Love Letters.
In a book, dated 1820, thoro is,
says tho People's Companion, tho
following very curious love opistle.
It affords an admirable play upon
words:
"Madame Most worthy of admiration.
After long consideration
and much meditation on tho
great reputation 3'ou possess in tho
nation, I havo a strong inclination
to become your relation. On your
approbation of tho declaration, I
shall mako preparation to remove
my situation to a moro convenient
station, to profess my admiration,
and if such oblation is worthy of
observation and can obtain commiseration
it will bo an
beyond all calculation of tho
joy and exultation of yours.
Sans Dissimulation."
Tho following is tho still moro
curious answer:
"Sir I perused your ovation
with much deliberation at the groat
infatuation of your imagination to
imch veneration on so slight a
foundation. But after examination
and much serious contemplation I
suppose your animation was tho
fruit of recreation or had sprung
from ostentation to dispidy j'our
education by an odd enu neration,
or rather multiplication, of words
of tho same termination, though of
great variation in each respective
signification. Now, without disputation,
your laborious application
in so tedious an occupation
desorves commendation, and thinking
imitation a sufBciont gratifica
tion, I am, without hesitation,
yours,
Mary Moderation."
An Explanation.
Editor Guardian: Wo, tho undersigned
board of trustees of
School District,No.l in justice
tico to ourselves, to tho teachers
and to tho patrons of tho school,
will state through tho columns of
your paper, for tho information of
all persons concerned that tho
trustees in employing Judge Mc-Collum
to teach our grammar department
for the term, made a
special contract with Judgo Mc-
Collum to tho effect that ho should
bo allowed tho opportunity of disposing
of his law business pending
in this term of court. No one regrets
tho turn affairs havo taken,
more than tho board of trustees.
Had wo known that court would
havo convoncd so soon wo would
have postponed tho opening of the
school until after court. The fact
of our having secured the services
ofsuchanable teacher as Judge
McCollum justifies tho board in
begging the indulgence of tho patrons
of tho school, and will stato
further that all tho timo lost now
will bo made up at the end of the
term.
