Its peru sal will be interesting reading, even to many who m-ver heard of the man during his lifetime. It is only one more of the hundreds of true tales of adventurous careen of which the pio neer history of the west is composed, and few which are ever published, and still fewer are printed until the sub ject of them has passed beyond the vale. Old Jimmy was well known to scores of people in Phoenix but prob ably not one in a hundred of his ac quaintances ever knew of the- thrilling events of his earlier life. The story is written by W. E. Collins of Santa Cruz, Cal., addressed to The Republl-. can, and is as follows: I see in your paper the account of the death of James Drumm. I knew the man well and his life history. He was born in Ireland and came to Mas sachussetts when he was a year old. He was a schoolmate of General Ben But ler of civil war fame and had a fight with Butler at school and knocked his insensible. When 16 years of age he ran away and went to Texas where he served against Mexico before the civil war. Afterward for a number of years ho served with the Texas rangers and his name can be found in the records and history of Texas. He often told me the most awful sight he ever saw was shortly after he joined the ran gers in 1853. The rangers got word that the Commanches had killed a family on the plains. Forty-five ran gers went out to investigate. They found a man his wife and three chil dren strung on a wagon tongue, the father first, next his wife and three little children in a. row, the eldest first and baby last. They had first stripped their victims, and then cut holes through their bodies to slip them on the tongue. Old Jimmy said he felt as if he wanted to kill every Indian on earth. There were known to be 250 Indians. The captain a coward and Indians. The captain was a coward and said "this is awful but there are too many of them." Jimmy stepped one side and said, "every man that is not a cowardwill stelp over here." In a few minutesill but the captain had taken Jim's side The captain began to roast Jim and told him he would have him discharged. Jim toid him to "go to the devil" and gave the order to forward march. The captain fell In behind. They overtook the Indians and killed over 30 losing several men themselves. Jim received a number of wounds himself. At the outbreak of the civil, war he joined a Texas battery. At a fight In Tennessee he was taken prisoner with his gun by Butler's men. In the even- COLLINGS VEHICLE AND HARNESS CO. X "2-24 East Adams St. Next to Adams Hotel. Not good POSITION but good DISPOSITION that makes one happy. P0STUM makes good dispositions. "There's a Reason." ing General Butler came around to see I the prisoners and recognized Jim. He ! nays, "aint you Jimmy Drumm?" j 'Yes." said Jim, "I have been trying to i plug you all day, but you took me i gun." Butler tried hard to get Jim to j Join his command but could not, so he left word with the guard to not watch Jimmy very close. In a week he was back with the rebel battery' trying to plug Butler. At the close of the war he started for Arizona and arrived in 1SG8 at Tucson. He came all the way on horse back across the country. At his last camp. In the morning he saw a man on horseback trying to make a pass in the mountains and a band of Apaches trying to head him off. He saw the man drop a valise and In about an hour he picked it up. It con tained $47,000 In bills and belonged to a Tucson merchant. Jim was offered $H0 for bringing it in. He .declined with thanks saying he had plenty of money. He had a fight with Apaches near Wickenburg before Phoenix was heard of. Many times have I seen the arrow scars. He was a pioneer and ran the first ferry at Ehrenburg on the Colo rado. He has also discovered and sold more mines than any man In Arizona. I cannot vouch for this but that is what always heard. Dr Dines of Tem pe is an old friend. Also a Mexican of Wickenburg 43 years old who was born at Ehrenburg. 9im was there at the time of his birth. " His name is Roscoe I believe. From my knowledge of Jimmy Drumm I don't think a braver or larger hearted man ever lived. He has folks living in Massachusetts whose address I have forgotten. Some of them are very wealthy and probably would like to know of him. The least Ari zona can do is to mark his grave so it can always be found. I do not wonder that it took a loeoywtive to kill him. Neither bullets, knives nor Indians arrows could do It.- May his soul rest In peace is my wish. Many are the long winter evenings he uuld talk of his past life to me, not tw brag but to relate actual facts as they occurred. Charles Genung also knows the man as did Henry Wickenburg. A. H.

Much work has been done in the vineyards which were injured by the wine parasite last year. In their rejuvenation 6, 000,000 American vine slips were used. The American slips do not bear in Austria, but at first serve only as a foundation for the native vines. Then they are cared for In v hot houses, and after three or four years become fruit bearing.
