After leaving El Paso, he held responsible positions on the Sierra Madre road, in Mexico, until he came to Arizona. Mr. Stephens was known as a very competent, efficient and ex perienced man, add was extremely popular wherever he was kno'.vn. He had been 111 with pneumonia only a few( days. , Another water tank ha.s just been completed by the Douglas Improve ment company. It ; will hold 300.000 gallons. Located on an elevation con siderably higher than any part of the city, It Is thought that there -a ill be now sufficient pressure to furnish wa ter for any part of the city, m a fi-w days when there has been time for the tank to fill with water. As it has been a difficult proposition to furnish water to residents of Fifteenth, Six teenth and Seventeenth streets, owing to the fact that one of the pumps is very much lower than these streets, (it is on Eleventh street.) and the two tanks in use heretofore did not hold a sufficient amount of water, it would seem that there should not now be any more trouble of this kind. Furrn.T more, there will now be a much let ter protection in case of fire. Charles A.

The University of Arizona Monthly gets better and better and handsomer and handsomer as the months go by. The March number of the magazine was received at this office yesterday and in surpasses in appearance and in excellence of matter anj of the prev ious magazines of the six volumes and four numbers. The business men, not only of Tucson, but o9 other towns cf the territory are showing a commend able appreciation of the growing excel lence of the monthly. The leading article of the March number la "The Field Excursion of tins Mining Class." with which the read ers cf The Republican are already familiar by reason of the series of let ters published In this paper from time to time by cne of the members of the class during the tour. There is a good selection of short stories, poems and miscellaneous matter. The most Interesting feature for those who are keeping track of the daily life of the university Is the collection of the events of the school " for the past month, the work of the literary uocle tles. the movements of the students and the members cf the faculty and the alumni notes. Considerable space Is devoted to the forthcoming forensic contest with the Tempe normal and the athletic pros pects of the university teams as well as the progress made in military de velopment. Praiseworthy as the March number is it may be said that the contributed articles are rebbed of some of their local interest by the omission of the names of the authors or by the sub stitution of the non de plumes.

"MISS GRACE BYDRS." AT THE DAM SITE Progress of Operations in the Various Departments. Living-stone, Ariz., March 16 (Special Correspondence Republican). Mr. Alex Ci. Pendleton, an old resident of Glob having resided there since 1876, died Saturday, March 12, of heart disease. Mr. Pendleton was a well-known engi neer, having been in the emp:oy.of the Old Dominion Mining company of Globe for -several years, and at the time of his death he was engaged by the geological survey on the road con struction work of 'the Tonto dam. Jr. Pendleton was well and favor ably known in. Globe and connected with several business enterprises of that city. He leaves a widdw, three sons and two daughters, his oldest son, Alex G. Pendleton, Jr., being- the pay ing teller of the Miners and Merchants' Bank of Globe. The funeral will be held Tuesday, March 15. Henry G. Prescott, who for a time was an employe of the government dip ping plant, and who left Globe saveral weeks ago after forging John W. Hal ler's name to several government sur vey checks on the Miners and) Mer cnants Dank or uioDe, was caught at El Paso March 3 and was brovght hack to Globe last Thursday. At the' time Prescott left the employ of tie survey he was paid by Mr. Haller with a check on the M. and M. bank of Globe for $11.87. Before teavlng Globe Prescott succeeded Iru obtaining a blajik check book on the bank and forged Mr. Haller's name to three additional checks amounting to $260. After leaving Globe he was next heard of at Naco. where he floated another cfaeck for $100. It was thought that Presco't would leave for Mexico after getlng the money on the check at Naco, but In stead he proceeded to El Paso. wh?re he endeavored to pass another check on the bank tfhere. but before payment was made the bank wired the M. and M. bank at Globe and Prescott was taken into custody. Mr. Haller leaves for Globe tomorrow to attend the pre liminary trial of Prescc-tt, which will be held on Tuesday.

' Sub-contractors for Scherer & Co., who have the contract for excavating, have been recently making observations of the line. The telephone line from Globe to the U. S. G. S. headquarters- at Livingstone has been completed and the line has boen in use for several weeks. Mr. Thorpe, who has the contract for build ing the government telephone line, ha completed the line from headquarters to the diversion dam, and In about a week connections will be made with Roosevelt, the lower camp at the dam site. " The poles have been placed and the? wlr sttunjg froth the Arizona .dam to Fiah Creek hill, and Hie work cm the line from Fish Creek hill to Roose velt' will be pushed rapidly. It Is ex pected that communication w,lth Phoenix win be possible In about a month's time. A good force of men is working un der Sanders & Hlnes, who have the contract for cutting the telephone j)ols and sawing lumber at the mill in the Sierra Anoha mountains. Messrs. W. Q. Stewart and Harry D. Stone of the engineering corps left Roosevelt during the past week. Mr. Stone, who was an assistant englnter. resigned his position and left for El Paso. Texas, having accepted the sit perlntendency of the El Paso street railway system. Mr. Stewart left for Spokane. Washington; where he will be er.gaeed gauging streams for the geo losical survey. REIDY. ANOTHER INITIATION A Colored Barber Succumbs to Time Honored Hold-up JoKe. He went to lay a carpet, but he had the verv life scared out him, and yel'ed until his lungs were hoarse, and now he is ready to murder the first man that mentions carpets to him. This relates to John Henry ,a colored bar ber employed in the Commercial bar ber shop. John Henry was initiated last night. He Js a big husky man of the dark skinned tribe and If he had known It was only a joke he could have torn into shreds, the combined' bodies of all the Jokers, but he believed it was real and. succumbed, and like Caesar, fell before the inevitable. It happened thualy: John Henry la new to Arizona and to the wave of Phoenixonians. He had read of holdups and perhaps believed Phoenix was a'bad place. He believes in making all the money he can. and when the opportunity was offered him to lay a carpet at night, he saw the chance of making an extra dollar or two. and he succumbed. So much for the history of John Henry . A couple of friends agreed to show him where the man lived who wanted the carpet laid.- The location of the house waa on the Yuma road, out be yond the Country Club house. John Henry accompanied his friends cut there. As they were walking along a dark and secluded spot, someone Jump- ed in front of them and ordered them to hold up their hands. John Henry turned and ran. His friends did likewise.- .The surDOsed footpad's revolver refused to work and there was no shooting. But John Henry ran. As he continued his mad race down the road, another man. who was llso In the scheme, Jumped in front of him und began shooting. This was too much for John Henry and he held uo his hands and screamed for mercy. it was only a Joke. CHARLEY'S AUNT AND JANE reaped a rich harvest from their American tour and certainly took thoir audiences by storm. There seems to be more finish to comedies written by English authors.

H-M-M-M-i- i- -M- h The crowd at the Dorris theater lwt evening to witness the performance given by Professor Faits, the hypnot ist, was the largest of the week, and the audience was apparently very well pleased with the exhibition. The young lady, w ho had been place in a restless hypnotic sleep in a display window, of a down-town store, was carried upon the stage and previous to her awakening Drs. Plath, Foss and Dameron examined her condition to ascertain if she had suffered any no ticeable Injury from the enforced s'.eep, and they Informed the audience that no Injury was apparent. The doctors later acted as subjects to as sist the professor, wlio was blindfolded, in locating certain persons n the audi ence. The professor will continue his performance- at the theater the rest af the week, with a matinee Saturday aft- ernoont.

ARREST OF HYPNOTIST Complaints Filed Which Call Forth Vigorous Protest. Professor Fait, the hypnotist, was ar rested yesterday for maintaining, or, rather, creating a ' nuisance. The pretty young lady who was sleeping the sleep of the restless in Dorris & Heyman's display window under th hypnotic "influence of the professor was the sunposed nuisance, but the young lady , disclaims the title, and if . the evidence of a "rubbering" crowd1 may be taken for anything, she was far more of an attraction than a nuisance. Bueene Brown swore to , the two HJmjrlaints, which caused the arrest of the hypnotist. They were issued by Justice Robertson and the warrants served by Constable Kyle. The pro- fessor was taken Into custody and is to appear before the justice at 10 o'clock this morning. In the first of the complaints it is charged that Professor Faits did "wil fully and unlawfully take, receive, hire, employ and use and have in his cus tody a dhild, used for public exhibition. In a wandering business and employ ment, contrary to public decency and cood morals." . In the second complaint it is alleged that the professor did "wilfully and unlawfully maintain and commit a public nuisance in Phoenix, Arizona at Nos. 22 to 28 West Washington street, offensive to. the senses of the public and annoying to. the feelings of the cit izens of the community." Both complaints relate to the pres ence in the professor's ' company . of Miss Minnie Foster, a young lady who comes from Red Bluff,. California.

FLOWERS GALORE Wreathes from 15c up to $2.00 THE FAIR, Next to Boston Store, AIM INDESCRIBABLE TORTURE Because Rheumatism sometimes comes oa suddenly it doesn't prove that it is a chance disease or one due to accidental causes. It takes time for it to develop, and is at work in the system long before any symptoms are felt. The blood is the first point of attack, and the poisonous acids that cause the aches and pains are then distrib uted through the circulation to different parts of the system, and settle in joints, muscles and nerves ; and when the system is in this condition it needs only some exciting- cause like exposure to night air, damp, chilly weather, or the cold, bleak winds of winter, to arouse the slumbering poisons and bring on Rheumatism. The severity of the attack depends upon the amount of acid in the blood and the quantity ot acrid matter in the joints and muscles. Some peo ple are almost helpless from the first, while others have occa sional spells or are uncomforta ble, restless, nervous and half sick all the time from the nagging aches and pains. Rheu matism is a disagreeable com panion even in its mildest form. It grows worse as we grow older, and frequently stiffens the joints, draws the muscles out of shape and breaks down the nervous system. A disease that origin ates in the blood, as Rheumatism does, cannot be cured with ex ternal remedies like liniments and plasters ; such things scatter the pains or drive them to some other part of the body, but do not touch the disease oramprove the condition of the blood. The thin acid blood must be restored to its normal ' " up the general health at the same time. : "Write for our special book on Rheumatism, and should you desire any special information or advice, our physicians will furnish it without charge.
