A MATTER OF FIGURES- What the Wilson BUI Cost Apache County. The editor of the Winslow Mail makes a mathematical calculation which proves the correctness of a theory advanced by the platform builders at the late Republican convention in Apache county. Says The Mail : Some comment has been provoked by the Republican county platform condemning the tariff agitation and the Wilson bill, and 'asserting that it has damaged the sheep industry ot thia county to the extent of $250,000 each year. But if one will stop to figure he will find the estimate is not much of'. There are about 2,0,000 shrep in Apache county, not connting- the vast flocks of the Navajo Indians. If six pounds be taken as the average fleece for the year and figure it at 15 cents, the price prevailing in 1892, then at the present price, we have half the suai named. The depreciation in the Value of the animals will nearly make the other half. Figure it out yourselves; do it carefully and be sure you do it before election. CHANGES AT SAN CARLOS.

Pedro Johnson, the Indian student who stole Charlie Genung's horse from Kirkland valley, escaped at Wicken berg on the night after Mr. Genung left here with him for Prescott. The first night they stopped at Agua Fria and they reached Wickenberg the second evening in time for supper. Mr. Genung got careless. He forgot that though his prisoner was an In dian, he was an Indian who had en joyed educational advantages. Pedro didn't look as if he knew enough to escape, but all the time his pampered intellect was at work; he was looking for an opportunity. It was served along with the supper. Mr. Genung rightly conjectured that his prisoner could" eat with greater freedom without handcuffs, so he took them off and he haB never replaced them. His attention was directed to something beside Pedro for a moment and by a strange coincidence that hap pened to be the moment Pedro chose for his departure. Nobody has seen anything of him since.
