Pickrell, ot this c!ty, have suffered great anxiety ever since word came of the burning of the Iroquois theater last Wednesday af ternoon, for they knew that thefr two children, Keith P'iekrellfc.nd Miss Abigail Pickrell, were members of the audience. They were attending school at Ken osha, Wis. Shortly before the news of the horror was received Mr. and Mrs. Pickrell received a letter from their daughter In which she said she and her brother were gong to Chicago to wit ness the opening play ot the new thea ter. "Mr. Bluebeard." t'ntil yesterday they had been unable to learn anything of their fate. On Thursday they telegraphed to Chicago and to friends elsewhere making In quiry about them, but they could re ceive no re;ily. The wires were no doubt laden with thousands of such messages ;i.nd in the confusion which prevailed the delivery of a telegram, except to persons of very definite ad dress, must have been uncertain. Yesterday morning Mr. T. J. Sparks, looking over the Chicago Ttibune printed the morning afte'r the fire, came upon the following pleasing item: "Miss Eugenia Sanborn, who with her brother Harold Sanborn, was entertain ing a party of twelve young people, es caped. Those In the party were Mr. K. Pickrell and Miss Abigail Pickrell, of Kenosha. Wis., Miss Fannie Mowry, of Aurora. Ills., Miss Augusta Greer., Miss Mabel Bullen, Miss Violet Hau ford. Percy Taylor, Albert Singer, Har ry Pridmore and William Gaddis. of Chicago. The party occupied two box es on the right of the stage and Mr. Pickrell Was among the first to see the fire. The young people weie among the' first tc escape. None of the party was injured." Dr. Craig, who knew of the anxiety of Mr. and Mrs. Pickrell, at once took them the paper containing the gratify ing :r format ion. The Tribune publishes a list of the greatest theater fires.

This is the story of a man who has more heart in him than knowledge of the world's wickedness. The marvel of it is that one in his line of activity should be so easily taken in by a con fidence man, for he is a middle aged gentleman who is engaged in travel-, irg over the country as an agent for a manufacturing concern in the east, his own home being San Francisco. He has been on the road for some years and among other places extensively loured is old Mexico, a part of the earth where it is supiosed one needs bis wits with him. His name is con cealed for the reason that his only crime was being too good and the no toriety might not be desirable. The other mar. concerned gives the name of W. T. ary. and it is probable from his methods that he has in other Darts al ready achieved more notoriety than he could possibly get out of this incident. About two years ago Mr. Blank and Mr. Gary met on a railroad train In old Mexico. They formed a mere speakir.g acquaintance and did not meet again till last Thursday, in this city. After the usual greetings, Gary told Mr. Bla.nk that he had a very sick wife ir Denver and showed him a numtter of letters from her. He said that he was without funds and would like to go to her in Denver, and asked Mr. Rlank if he could give him $20 to help him out. He was refused at first, but later re- 1 turned with an alleged telegraph mes sage saying his wife was dying, where upon Mr. Blank gave up the money. Still later Gary returned and asked for $20 more, saying -rre could get a half iv te ticket through the influence of the V. C. T. V. society and could get through all right if he only had $40. This occurred Saturday afternoon and as Mr. Clank was growing suspicious, he began to investigate. He called at the rooms of the AV. C. T. IT. and was told that no such per-1 son Had been there to their knowledge nor had anyone of that soit applied to them for assistance. Then he hunted up Gary and demanded the return of the $20 he had already given him, but Gary told him he did not have it. About 10 o'clock Saturday night he formed the acquaintance of Officer An- drewr. and told him his story, asking! for the arrest of Gary. Together they went to a house on West Madison street where he had been lodging for a couple of weeks, but learned 'that Gary had gone. They also learned that he had paid all his indebtedness and seemed to be a man who had all the money he needed for Incidental ex-1 nr-ra'-i Com i n w hnpk nrk town thpv looked through all the public houses but could not find him. Then Mr. Blank decidtd to give up the search and go to bed at the Hardwick hotel, as he want ed to leave for the north yesterday morning. ArMving at the Hard wick, he found Gary there Ptid going over to the Santa Fe deprtt telephoned Officer Andrews, who placed Gary in custody, and with Mr. Blank, escorted him to the city hall. The marshal was notified and gave instructions that the man be lock ed up. A search of his effects revealed t.he letters from his wife, but the telegram on which the money was raided was not at hand. As the evi dence was scarcely strong enough to hold him. the officer decided to give Gfir- a little rope and let him hang himself. Being a talkative perscn this was easy, and Gary kept his mouth working while the others piid little at tention to him and refused to converse. Finally. Gary said that if Hip;.- would let him -go he would go down town with them and get the twenty dollars from a fiiend and pay it back to Mr. "link, to which arrangement the lat ter consented. .Tust as the trio wri about to start to find the friend alluded j to the officer was called to the tela- ! phone and as he partially turned his b?ck to Gary, the latter was seen to raise his hrt and tak? a twenty dollar pi-ce from It. Handing it to Mr. Blank he asked him to raak his word good and lt him go. Mr. Blank thereupon J announced that he did not desire to lay over to prosecute Gary, so he was dis charged. There was. !n fact, little to nrnsijte him on then, except general principles. P.ut Gary knew that he had queered himself In this town, so when the train left ysterday morning he was on board and presumably he was not broke cUher, for he was riding on th cushions as was his victim. But the cushions were In different seats. Blank admitted to the officer that he W8? not the hardest man In the world to rob and even were he wiser he was easily appealed to by those In distress. He did not miss the money so much, for when he gave it up he never ex pected to see it again, but when he learned that he had been robbed, the twenty dollars looked as big as a hun dred. He said he had been gaining ex pe: lence tver since he could rememb;r and the first consignment was pur chased on a street corner along with a package of soap that was supposed to have a one dollar bill in it. His next investment was in a book bought on a train from a newsboy whom he saw put a bill in it immediately preceding the sale, but strangely enough he never could find the page that held the bill. SOME OF THE CATTLEMEN They Altogether MaKe an Imposing' Aggregation. There was an informal meeting last night at the Hotel Adams of the ad vance guard of the cattlemen who have come to attend the meeting of the new territorial association. A great many more will arrive on the trains of this morning. So manv men renre- senting this great industry were nev er before gathered in Phoenix. The gentlemen all look prosperous and al together constitute a tine body of men. Among the arrivals from the south are Messrs. Stui-ges and Riggs cf the Live Stock Sanitary board. There is also Hon. Colin Cameron, a for mer chairman of the beard, who is in Phoenix now for (he first time in six years. Others are Judge E. R. Monk, president of the as sociation, and Harry Heffner, secre tary. There is also H. K. Street of the Kern River Land and Cattle company, controlling in this teriitory the Bo quillas grant: E. J. Gates, -secretary of the Turkey Track company; F. B. Mo- sen, a manager of the company. There is. too, Frank Proctor. Among the members from the north are John Duke of Yavapai county and E. S. Gosney of Coconino. One of the most prominent of the visitors is Capt. W. H. McKittrick, who, if he had not become a cattle king, would probably have been one of the great singers of the country and have occupied a. position in the musi cal world similar to that of Walter Damrosch. Captain McKittrick, by the way, is a son-in-law of General Shafter. He served in the Cuban campaign and first raised the stars and stripes over Santlrvgo. Mr. Moson of the Turkey Track company is a relative of Col. W. C. Greene. He is one of the men who ar rested Stiles the outlaw at the time he was taken into custody the last time and when he and Alvord escap ed from the Tombstone jail they threatened to kill Mr. Moson and Col. Greene. Neither of the intended victims lost sleep by reason of the threat, but it was learned afterward that the life cf Mr. Moson had really been in da-t- ger. The outlaws had lain hidden on the range of the company for sixteen hours, during a considerable part of which time Mr. Moson was riding about the range as usual, but he did not happen to go into a part of it in which he could have been ambushed. Another of the visitors is Col J. J. Van Vosburgh of Eos Angeles, who is extensively interested in the cattle business in Gila county. THE T0NT0 KILLING The More Learned of It the More Bru tal It Appears. The Arizona Silver Belt prints the following story of the preliminary trial of Zack and John Booth for the killing near Gisela of Wiley Berry 'and a Mexican boy, named Vigil: The prisoners were taken to Payson where the preliminary hearing of Zack Booth began on Saturday and wa concluded on Monday, before Justice J. O. Hill, who bound the defendant ovr without bail to await the action of the grand jury. In the absence of the district attor ney, Henry Q. Robertson was retained by Suntiago Vigil father of the mur dered Mexican boy. to prosecute the Booths and J. W Wentworth conducted the defense. At the coroner's inauest Zack Booth made a confession, assum ing the responsibility for killing both the young men. and denying that his brother John Booth was in any way iniDlicated. There were some descrep ancies in the s'atemmit made by Zaclt liooth which are discredited. He al leges self defense as the motive for killing Berry and Vigil, claiming that the former shot at him first, the bulllet from Berry's gun striking the pommel of his t-addle, whereupon he (Zack Both) returned the tire, killing both young men He also stated that when ho ordered them to leave the vicinity they were "sassy." Wiley Berry was the son of Vv. W. Berry, a prominent citizen and former sheriff of Apache county. The youna innn was 2u years of age and is high ly spoken of He was shot twice in the lneast and his body was left lying partly In the lire where it had fallen. Vigil, the Mexican boy, was the son of Santiago Vigil, herder for the Bcrrys His body was found some dis tance from that of Berry and he is Buiiposed to have been running when trhot in xA.e back. The assassin than shot him twice in the breast and once J,i the throat undtr the chin. District Attorney George R. Hill and Vndorsheriff Pollard Pearson left here 01: the afternoon of Christmas, and reached Payson on Sunday. The dis trict attorney found that Mr. Robertson had conducted the prosecution with good judgment and ability and re quested him to go on with the cases. At the conclusion . of the hearing of Zack Booth the court took a recess to give time for the exhuming and -examination of the bodies of Berry and Vig il, for the puipose, it is supposed, of ascertaining if there was a difference In the calibre of the bullets with which they were shot, or any other circum stances which might throw light on th crime. W. W. Berry, father of Wiley Berry, and David Dee. of Thatcher, arrived here on Tuesday night's train and left 1'or the north yesterday afternoon. It Is Mr. Jeriy's intention to have his son's remain removed to St. Johns, Anaxhe county, as soon as possible. Mr. Berry had stopped at Thatcher to see his wife and daughters, who were visiting friends therei when news of the son's assasination reached them in a letter from Justice of the Peace Hill of Payson, who found a letter in young Berry's pocket, from his mother written at Thatcher. The parents were greatly distressed by the wholly unex pected announcement of the killing of their son and the violent manner of his death, and the father had not recover ed from the shock when he left here yesterday. Sweet Solicitude. "Charlie, dear," said young Mrs. Tor kins, "I do wish you would keep away from the race track." There was no reply. "I heard some men talking about a lot of long shots that landed, and If I had known, Charlie, dear, that there was rifle practice going on in the neighborhood I should never have let you go near the place." Washington Star. Found Out His Mistake. "Do you know anything about 'flirt ing?" "No." he replied sadly. "I thought I did. but when I tried it the girl mar ried me." She Got the Candy. It was a Chicago child riot yet thres years old, who, having been punished by her mother, called up her father on the telephone for sympathy. "Papa," was the call that his stenographer heard on answering the ring. "Why it's the baby," she said to her employer. The startled man, with vis ions of disaster in his mind caught tha receiver and said: "What is it, baby?" "Mamma 'panked me," was the re ply. . "What do you want me to do about it?", asked the relieved and amused parent "Come right home and bring me a pound of candy," said the child. t Comes AND We can show ,Our stock is coming in slowly, but in 60 days from now will have the largest up-to-date stock in the city.

The reason given is that a woman should know how to use the pistol for self pro tection. The theory should be carried farther. Where a woman is in danger from assault once she is in danger from disease every day of her ine. women have not only to run the risk of diseases which threaten husband, brother, and sou, but they have also to guard against diseases which are peculiar to woman hood. From these diseases Dr. Tierce's Favorite Prescription will effect ively defend women. The use of this medi cine preserves as well as restores the woman ly health. It corrects irregularity, dries' weakening drains o heals inflammation and ulceration, and cures female weakness.
