THE RENEGADE APACHES. They Are Located In the Chiri cahua Mountains. A Squaw Who Had Been a Prisoner of the Indians Makes Her Es cape From Their Camp. A small band of renegade Apaches was reported to be off the reservation and committing depredations in May,! last. A lone squaw was captured a few days ago and brought into Willcox and through an interpreter she stated that the renegades escaped from the reser vation in May. They were twelve in number, under the leadership of Massa, the well known outlaw. She said that when the renegades left the reservation they came across ner with her pappoose and mother. They killed the mother in cold blood and forced her and the child to accompany the band, a pris oner and with her feet tied. After committing depredations along the way the small band escaped into the Chiricahua mountains, where they have since been located. The squaw was kept a close prisoner, but one day managed to escape when all hands were on a hunting expedition, leaving her in camp. As soon as the coast was clear, abandoning her offspring, she secured the fleetest pony in camp and made for the north, traveling night and day. The squaw's story was made known to the military authorities at Fort Grant. Col. Sumner sent a detach ment of troops with the squaw as guide, to locate the band of Indians. The troops arrived at Willcox the next day with thirty days' rations and under in structions to caDture or exterminate the band. ,. The Bquaw had no means of knowing the exact location of the renegades' camp but believed it to be this side of the Mexican line, but from the descrip tion of the distance travelled the offi cers believe it to be south of the line in which case they have no hope of the expedition being a success. It is not generally known, but a fact nevertheless, that United States troops are forbidden to go on Mexican soil un less on a hot trial, and then dare only go into the interior for a distance of ten miles, without first reporting to and getting permission from the Mexican war department, and which red tape measures serves to completely handicap our troops. STILL THEY COME. Campers Are Still Arriving at the Park, Interest Continues Unabated and the Work of Saving Souls Goes on Uninterrupted. The day was passed uneventfully so far as additions to campers were eon cerned, but several visitors were on the ground throughout the day.

Robert Wright, a young theological student, who promises to make a shining light in the ministerial field. The afternoon sermon was delivered by Rev. Wyahcoop to a good sized au dience. The day services are attended largely by members of the different churches and are noticeably interested in the proceedings.

Mrs. Wright led the ladies' prayer service. Mies Mattie Garnet spent the day at the camp yeBterday. The evening sermon was delivered by Rev. Hedgepeth from the ninth chap ter of Mark, and from the seventeenth to the twenty-seventh verse, on faith. It was an able sermon, short and full of sensible arguments for religion.

All Bay come azain doctor. Mr. and Mrs. Elder came over for a day's outing. They usually enjoy the campmeetings wherever held, and it was to their many friends on the grounds a pleasure to welcome them. Tbe report circulated to the effect that bicycle riders would be allowed tbe use of the race track a couple of hours each afternoon was a mistake. This was spoken of but soon decided impracticable owing to having so much confusion during this time. Little Wonder Fields came near losing her life yesterday morning, try ing to swing away up on the grand stand. She became unbalanced and came down with bad results. She is to be congratulated however, on not having lost a limb or her life.
