Ford has a sample of ore which afflicts all mining men to whom he shows it with sore eyes. It is rube scite, so called from its glowing and ever changing color. . A ton of it yields 1,400 pounds of copper and $3,000 in gold. A small piece weighing perhaps two ounces is all the doctor has of it, but less than a year ago he had a chance to on a ledge of It sixteen inches wide and long enough and deep enough to be worth several million dol lars. The ore came from an unlikely region on the shores of Georgian bay. Years ago the doctor when a student at the University of Michigan, made a trip over that country with Professor Houghton of the faculty. It was only a students' geological outing and not a prospecting expedition, so nothing was discovered then or for many years af ter. Less than a year ago a Mr. Dyer, also a former student at the university, was In Phoenix for his health. He told Dr. Ford of late mineral discoveries along the Georgian bay and showed him a sample of ore which, he said, came from a mine that could be bought for $13,000, $3,000 down. The doctor wanted to buy it at once and urged Mr. Dyer to go at once and close the deal. But as that country was then wrapped in snow and was likely to be so involved for a long time, Mr. Dyer could not see the neces sity of hurrying. Beside, he was in the south for his health. He went back in the late spring, but by that time the mine had been sold for $110,000. It has since been sold to some English cap italists for $3,000,000. MR STEARNS IS REMINDED Or a rr'flhtful spook He Heard or Years Ag;. "What is that story you all printed about the Seven Ghosts family among the Navajos the other day?" asked It. S. Stearns of the Fashion barber shop yesterday. "What is the Seven Ghosts any how?" Mr. Stearns was informed that it happened to be the name of a Navajo family and that whatever sig nificance the gruesome name had, had not been made known to the whites. It was only known that one of the sup erstitions connected with it made it necessary for the members of the fam ily to bury their own dead. Other members of the tribe would not move or even touch the dead body of a member of the Seven Ghosts family, as had been shown after the late fight at Walnut Creek canyon, in which one of the three Navajos killed was a Seven Ghosts man. "Speaking of ghosts," continued Mr. MONEY FREE! We know our Velvet Flour with Pepsin is the finest and most healthy flour on the market.

Stearns, "reminds me of a ghost story : old Joe Cotton used to tell down in j Alabama." Mr. Stearns was per suaded with great difficulty to relate j the story, which he said always made him afraid the next night after it was ; recalled to him, and he had been try ing for several years to forget it. The story is substantially as fol lows: One night a man who had been out late, went home and lighted his candle. By its feeble and flickering rays he saw a huge and horrible crea ture half man and half beast, sitting on a mantel. The man was motionless with fear! but was quickly roused into activity by the spook remarking with an effort at joviality. "Well, there seems to be nobody here but me and you." The man replied with impromptu and unintended wit. as he went out of the window, "There's nobody here but you." He ran wildly a couple of miles until he was out of wind and thought he was out of danger. He slacked up and the spook panting, drew up beside him. observing: "Well, that was a pretty good run we made." ; "Yes," howled the man, "but it ) aint a circumstance to the run we're goin' to make now." THE HILLMON CASE In Which Arizona Was Onrr Kunfrd Over for Testimony. About six years ago Arizona was scoured by detectives representing th? New York Life, the Mutual Life and the Connecticut Mutual insurance com panies in search of John AV. Hillmon, who was wanted in the first place, for an attempt to defraud the insurance companies, and in the second place, for murder committed in the cause of that attempt. A man answering the description of Hillmon was kept under surveillance for several weeks by Billy Blankenship, then city marshal. He suddenly disappeared and was seen no more here. A few days after that a man suspected of being Hillmon was arrested in Cochise county, but was subsequently released, after having been confronted by persons who knew Hillmon. The detectives still believed on the information which had brought them here, that Hillmon had been in the territory. The Hillmon case, one of the most remarkable in the experience of life insurance companies, has again been temporarily disposed of after twenty years. The history of it is as follows: In 1S79 John W. Hillmon, who reside! in Kansas, disappeared while on a hunting trip near Medicine Lodge and it was claimed by his companions that he had been accidentally killed. Not long before setting out on this trip Hillmon had insursed his life in the Connecticut Mutual for $10,000, the New York Life for $10,000 and the Mu tual Life, for $5,000. These companies demanded more definite proof of his death than had been furnished by his companions, and resisted the payment of the policies, alleging fraud. The body of the dead man was twice ex humed and it was claimed by the com panies that it was the body of a man whom Hillmon had murdered. In four trials juries failed to agree; in one a verdict was found for the plaintiff, Hillmon's wife, and the case was car ried to the supreme court where judg ment was reversed, after having passed muster in the supreme court of the state. Two years ago the New 'York Life settled with Mrs. Hillmon. The sixth trial c.f the casa against the other two companies has just been concluded at Leavenworth, Kan., resulting in a verdict for the plaintiff for ?:::;.102, cov ering the amount of the policies with interest at six per cent for twenty years. It is said that the litigation and the collecting of testimonv has cost the defendant companies $100.00. They announce that the fight is to be continued. SOME WERE ARIZOMANS The Thirty-fourth Made a Good Im pression at Manila. The boys of the Thirty-fourth regi ment created a favorable impression at j Manila. The .American, a daily paper of Manila, a copy of which of the date of Oc tober 15, recently received at this office, says or their arrival: "The United States transport Belgian King, twenty-seven days from San Francisco, via Honolulu and the south ern route, arrived in the bay yesterday morning. She has on board Z men of the Thirty-fourth regiment and tAventy eight officers. "The expedition was in command of Lieutenant-Col. Howze, while Lieuten ant Coleman acted as commissary and quartermaster. She brought no mail, it being held for the United States transport Grant, which was to sail two days later and was to take the northern passage, and which was calculated to arrive several days in advance of the Belgian King. The Second battalion, which arrived on the Columbia, was brought ashore yesterday afternoon and is quartered at the old California barracks, where it will await the land ing of the rest of the regiment, when it will be assigned. "The Belgian King experienced no rough weather, and Lieutenant Cole man said to an American reporter: 'It was a pleasure trip; it was really a dream.' "The men of the Thirty-fourth are all well built, athletic looking fellows and are as proud of their officers as the latter are of the men. " 'The work of collecting and arming this regiment has been remarkable,' said Col. Kennon. 'It is a most excel lent set of officers and men. It is the first purely western regiment, for the men come from the states where we don't get many soldiers in times of peace, but in times of war the moun tains and plains come right to the front and do their part. Physically, the men are above the average recruits, and best of all, they are half prepared for service. Their western life has taught them to feel no hardship in camping under the stars; they know how to handle horses and wagons and are accustomed to life in the open fields. Beside, they are experienced in the use of weapons, which is much of a soldier's education. In fact, they were half trained before they entered camp.' " The voyage of the Belgian King may have been a dream, but according to a letter lately published in The Republi can from some of the Phoenix boys who traveled on the Columbia, the voy age of that boat was not a dream, or, if it was, it was a horrible nightmare. WANTED STRAP OIL Did Not Knew What it Wis but He Pound Out. It's an old, old story, but it worked again just the same. There's a sucker born every minute and most of them live to grow up. A sucker, by the way, is different from a tadpole. Tadpoles sometimes develop into frogs, but suckers never change. They are like the fixed stars, only different. They have to keep moving to keep out of the way of larger fish. A few days ago a tall young man. who has become a standing joke for the reason that Jiis tormentors keep him in hot water so much he has no time to sit down, carried a "loaded" note to Frank Shirley's barber shop. The young man has a pleasant, good natured countenance and a yellow skin that shortly after was streaked with blue. Mr. Shirley smiled as he read the note, which said: "Please send me some strap oil by bearer. Respectfully. "j. W. BOLTON." "I think you will find some in the back yard," spoke up one of the bar bers. "How much do you want?" said Mr. Shirley. "Oh: a lot," said the tall young man. "All right, come out here," said Shirley, and the two retired through the rear door. Shirley had a razor strop up his sleeve, and as the tall young man shot back through the shop he left a trail of strap oil on the linoleum. The young man is still a standing joke and sitting down is more than usually uncomfortable. CARNIVAL FLOATS Tcmpe, Mesa and Olendale Invited to Exhibit. The question of floats for the big car nival parade on Monday, December 4, is just now engaging the attention of the business world of Phoenix and a goodly number of business firms have already signified their intention of be ing represented in the line of march. Lloyd Damron, a well known young newspaper man, is looking after this part of the carnival parade and has already met with encouraging success. One of the floats that is sure to at tract attention will be drawn by four Great Dane dogs and the float itself will be a cage containing a great spot ted dog. These fine canines are the property of Mr. Ramsey. Invitations have been extended to the towns of Tempe and Mesa City and it is expected that Glendale and Al hambra will join the procession with handsome floats. All of the Spanish-American lodges will have floats. The Sisters of Re bekah will have three floats, one of the subjects being "Rebekah at the Well." The parade from one end to the other will be a moving panorama. An invitation has been extended by President McCowan to the Los Angelis chamber of commerce to attend the carnival in a body. It is argued that Los Angeles business men can find it to their advantage to pay Phoenix "a visit and get better acquainted with conditions here and local business men. California people do not realize the ex tent or possibilities of the Salt River valley. For that reason a visit from them would be mutually advantageous. Arrangements are being made for the appearance here of a small band of Zuni Indians. The Zunis are noted for their grace and agility as dancers and will be ji center of attraction. A band of Apache Indians from the White river agency will start overland on the 27th ir.st. for Phoenix. A colored minstrel troupe has been engaged for carnival week by the as sociation and will give free outdoor per formances. In the battle of San Juan hill that is to be given on Monday night the American troops will storm a Spanish block-house and after capturing it set fire and burn it to the ground. The following cash Items were paid to the carnival association yesterday: C. Cnmpbell, $10; Frank Shirley, $5; George Caldwell, $3; L. E. Hewins. $10; Mohn & Easterling, $23: C. F. Dears ley, $3; T. F. Hudson, $10; R. F. Doll, $25: A. J. Bradley, $25; Phoenix Flour mills. $23. Mr. H. P. DeMund, chairman of the buildings and grounds committee, has drawn up the plans and specifications for the grand stands to be built on Lightburne plaza. Construction of the same will begin in the course of a few days. A CRUEL MAN Bru'al Treatment Always Tcllov s the H'jnr ymoon. A harrowing scene was witnessed on the court house plaza yesterday after noon which illustrates how quickly attachments cool after the tying of the nuptial knot and how easily a trustful maiden heart is led to suspicion her young husband's forgetfulness. It was caused by a young man and a young woman, both of them well dress ed and good looking, and he, with de termination stamped on every feature of his face, was struggling to free him self from her grasp. The more he tried to tear himself away from her the greater was the desperation with which she clung to his arm. Many of the ac cidental spectators were visibly affect ed. "Don't go, Harry, darling, don't go"' she pleaded, her great violet eye3 swimming with tears. "Nonsense, nonsense!" the brute cried; "let go my arm and don't get a scene up!" As he continued to try to free him self of her hold more than one young man in the crowd who had gone in for boxing lessons felt a strong desire to "put through" the heartless ruffian. Only the oft-witnessed spectacle of a wife suddenly "rounding" on her hus band's assailant deterred them. Still, to stand by and see a young woman particularly a distinctly pretty young woman cast off like an old glove made their blood boil. "Once again, will you let go, Doris?" the young man literally thundered, pulling her gloved fingers from the la pel of his coat collar. "Oh, don't, don't, don't go!" the young woman sobbed again, and then added, seeing that she had quite an in terested and a sympathetic crowd around her, "and to think that we were only married last Saturday!" By this time he had torn himself away and stood on the side walk waiting for a car. The beautiful girl who had failed to de tain him by any means entreaty, per suasion, even physical e'.lnging sank into a sobbing heap upon a bench. Moved to it by the girl's wailings. the biggest man in the crowd stepped in front of the young fellow and asked roughly: "What do you want to desert her for when you was on'y a-married last Sat urday?" "Simply, my dear fellow, "replied the young husband in a tone of irritation. I "because I've spent the very last quar I ter I've got and must go to the office I for a check. Tell her, some of you. when she comes to, that I'll certainly be back by tea time." The crowd sniggered and looked somewhat sheepish as it dis ! persed, while the biggest man- in it j went into the Ford hotel bar and ! swore to himse If over a mixed drink ' never again to step in between husband land wife as mediator. o SHALL PHOENIX BE BULLDOZED? COMPETITION LOOKS GOOD. The results of the struggle for su premacy between the Hallwood Cash Register Company and its opponents which has been so successfully fought out in the East by the Hallwood com pany is probably news in this section. The contest has become a veritable chestnut in the East and the efforts of the opposition to dissatisfy the users of the Hallwood have reached a point there where they are not only laughed at but considered simply, NUISANCES. All questions whatsoever regarding pat ents have been fought out in the courts and finally and irrevocably settled by the court of last resort in the SU PREME COURT OF APPEALS AT WASHINGTON, D. C, and the com missioner of patents of the United States government so instructed. How ever, all users of Hallwood registers are supplied with a bond as good as gold which covers every phase of the situa tion. The contest has now settled down to one of relative merits only and in all such contests the Hallwood has come off victorious. See challenge; "How to Win $50."

The coming of the great Griffith is attracting no little attention from amusement lovers and judging from all reports they are justified in looking forward to a rare treat. Professor Griffith has no equal in his profession and is considered by all to be the great est hypnotist now living. His feats are simply wonderful and have to be seen to be appreciated. While here he will make his wonderful blindfold drive, place a subject in a hypnotic trance for forty-eight hours, defying any one to wake him; will hypnotize as many local subjects as will go on the stage and allow themselves tested, and also many other equally wonderful things. Hypnotism is a fact and any one see ing the great Griffith will be thorough ly convinced of it. All skeptics are in vited to attend. He also places a lady in a cataleptic stage and stands five heavy men upon her while she is rigid between two chairs. Now is the chance for skeptics. He will make you dance and do anything he may de sire. If you do not want to be hypno tized go and see the fun anyway. Yoa will laugh until your sides ache.
