Little did they think, as . they rhug-chiiKgred through the cooling morning zephyrs, that the shadow of death lurked in the glowing 'naming sunbeams; that far beyond them over the red adobe wastes. In a crevice of J. Camelback. lay one of the greatest dls i coverles in the history of Elkdom. Arrived at one of the shady glades of Camelback, the party ran the ma chine into a clump of rocks, leaving the bountiful store of rations in the bed of the machine. Taking shooting irons the entire party set off in quest of game before the sumptuous mid day feed that was to be the event of the outing. Many a good shot was shot, and many a good chance was missed, until shortly after IX o'clock when all returned to where they had left the machine. But the automobile was gone. Not a trace of it was vis ible. At first it was thought they had not returned to the right spot, but the tell-tale cigar wrappers, bits of lunch, corks, and here and there a portion of automobile tire told them that all was not well. The Elks found themselves in a predicament not to be envied nothing to cat, drink, smoke, and no means of getting back home. Of course everyone became excited. A conglomeration of suggestions was '. made. Wild and unintelligible coni- mands rent the air. Finally, after j calm had been restored to some ex ; tent, the Elks separated into different groups, to make a systematic search. ! And all afternoon they walked, scur i ried, ran, hither and thither, in search "f hat they really didn't know ex We'll be glad to see you, and we'll take care of your needs promptly and to your satisfaction.

Twilight came on, and as the blue sky turned golden, from gold to red, and on into lavender, and finally black, the exhausted men, hun gry, tired, parched with thirst and worn out from exceptional hardship, the awfulness of their situation came upon them with all its force. Some yelled for help, others screamed, while several cried. But only the ' echoes from out the darkness answered them. All night they searched, although they knev it was useless, and as the early streaks of the" awakening; dawn came over the horizon the worn out men found themselves bunched togeth er. They had gone clear around on the far side of the mountain and as they looked off over the area of weath ered rocks a small adobe hut like a chipped brick-bat met their bloodshot eyes. Making their way as best their worn out bodies would allow them they came upon it, held a council as to what to do, and then decided to enter the black blot called the door. It was some time before their eyes became accustomed to the early morn ing light that faintly entered the bar-, ren hut, but as they became able to look into the dark shadows a horrible, squirming mass of purple met their eyes. Hundreds of purple reptiles, rolling, twisting, writhing over the floor of the adobe hut. Xo two were the' same size. Some of the shiny pur ple bodies measured over eighteen feet in length. Each and every snake had a Malr of antlers away out of propor tion to the size of its body. All of the squirming reptile mass was fighting for the last piece of rubber from one the rest with silver tipped horns, and hung a long purple body suspended from a rafter, different in form from the rest of the silver tipped horns, and bushy tail, presumably one of the roval members of the snaky band. In his mouth was a large and black Ha vana, almost finished, and from the lolling manner in which he irregularly swayed from side to side it could be plainly seen that he was under the influence of heavy Burgundy. The Elks were horrified, almost paralyzed with fear. At this moment a hiss re sembling a quickly drawn in breath caused the men to turn and behold a in on us within the be very busy, but H-M"H"H"M 1"r-WH-M--4"HH"H4"H cloud of dust advancing up the rocky pass. From out the dense and dusty cloud of reddish hue protruded a pair of antlers, over fifteen feet across, tip ped with diamonds, but the party never stopped to make further investi gations; they simply ran. Where they knew not. The gentlemen have not yet found out how, or where, the body of the ma chine went. Neither will they tell how they returned to Phoenix. They have, however, a small, purple, slimy reptile, with antlers, in their club rooms that they will not allow the outside world to even so much as get a peep at until they place it on exhibition as their of fering from the Arizona Lodge of Elks as the tribute to the Los Angeles Elks' convention.

I WORLD'S COSTLIEST STREET CAR SERVICE ARCHAIC HORSE CAR LINE IN NEW YORK. Memorable Hearst-McClellan Mayor alty Contest Ends After Nearly Four Years and Great Expense New York, June 23. (Special Cor respondence of The Republican.) This city now holds the unenviable record of possessing the most ex pensive street railroad in the world, which affords the blue ribbon ex ample of the methods of financial Jugglery that brought about the wrecking of the greater part of the local traction system. Even New Yorkers, accustomed as they are to the Ins and outs of the city's trans portation lines have had their eyes opened by the report fn this unique property which has Just been made to the public service commlsfson. The line in question which runs across the city from river to river is of the horse car variety. It is a trifle over three miles in length, is equipped with a single track with turnouts and owns and operates rolling stock to the extent of three horse cars. It is in a word about the most antiquated example of a surface transKrtation line In the city, and yet the figures on file with the public service com mission show that the men in charge of the company claimed to have spent $1,063,244 a mile for equipment, a sum, it is asserted, which would replace the present outfit with tracks of silver ard gold 'covered cars. The franchise for this remarkable line was issued, in 18S6. and ten years later the road went into the hands of a receiver. This was at the begin ning of the receivership epidemic which resulted in most of the surface lines in Manhattan coming into the possession of the Metropolitan clique. Upon the acquirement of the little road by these interests stocks and bonds were issued to the amount of $3,000,000. At present the line is be ing operated, by a receiver at a loss of 2.'!0 per cent, and altogether it af fords a most striking example not only of the traction situation here, but of methods of high finance as well. It is likely to be some time before Father Knickerbocker can be expected again to manifest much interest in the luxury of two mayors, since ex perience has show nsuch an indul gence to be entirely too expensive. It is only after three and a half years that the city's only experiment in this line has been closed, and the comedy, which at times promised to become tragedy, of two municipal dromios closed. The final ward in this exciting drama was only written this week and It took the form of a signature on a check which leaves the city with J83.576 less than it had before. Although it was nearly four years ago that Hearst and McClellan ran such an astonishingly close race for the Job of being mayor of Great er New York that each claimed to have been elected. It was only last year, after the famous recount of the ballots and subsequent to the intro duction of much testimony dealing with all sorts of political scandal, that Mf. McClellan was finally de clared to be the winner. More than $1,000,000, It is estimated, has ' been spent by the city in Btralghtening out this tangle, of which the check for J83.S76 was a final payment to Mayor McClelland by the city for his ex penses In the recount fight. To be forced to put up a million dollars for the privilege of seeing two candidates fight over the chief office In his city government is an opportunity which hardly appeals to Father Knicker bocker, and it Is likely that if a re currence of the situation ever takes place there will be marked apathy on the part of the city for the role of referee. The police department, whose mem bers are variously known as the "finest" or "de cops," according to the part of the city in which one lives, is apparently in for a hard summer. Not a day passes now but some irate citizen adduces all sorts of alleged evidence of Dolice corruption. The whole affair started by the arraign ment of Police Commissioner Bing ham by Justice Gaynor for the al leged, arbitrary methods of the police which has acted as an opening wedge for all sorts of attacks on the police department, many of which are evidently the reiult ,of spite, while others are simply ludicrous. Perhaps the strangent of these was recently made by a pickpocket named Smith who admitted that he had followed the profession for 12 years against an officer who was sent to Detroit to bring him pack after his nrresU there. According to Smith the officer proposed a game of cards, hut as neither had any money with which to gamble, the prisoner . was turned t 1 t - H - HH - Amateurs Next loose to go through the train with the result that he quickly gathered- in forty-six dollars, dividing equally with the policeman as, he asserts, is the regular New York custom. It was not until the officer had won some $106 from Smith who sup posedly had only $23, that the minion of the law became suspicious and accused Smith of holding out more than his "share. According to the pickpocket's story, however, he had merely been picking the officer's pocket right along and allowing him to win the same money over and over again. The policeman's distrust so keenly hurt Smith's feelings, the latter alleges, that he decided to re veal the whole affair. Sad as it is, however, even the keenest critics of the police department are ready to makes Smith a dishonorary member of the Ananias club. If you want to make money, lose it, or allege that you have lost it. While it hardly sounds reasonable as a financial proposition, this dictum is likely to become so popular here this summer that a regular epidemic of purse losing is looked for by the po lice. The reason for this unique method of making money which here tofore has not been regarded as suc cessful, even in Wall street, comes as a result of no less an authority than that of a court decision. The case from which this new means of ac quiring wealth takes its inception is that of an Italian who while return ing by subway" from Brooklyn drop ped the purse Just as he was leaving the car, that It fell Just inside the gate where be could not reach it and that upon asking the guard for it he was told he would have to apply at the main office. At the "Lost and Found" department he testified no pocketbook answering the descrip tion of the one which he had lost had been turned in. He therefore brought suit against the company for the sum of $500 which he said it contained. In spite of the fact that Only 2 Days Left The answers are coining in fast and the contest promises to be a great success in every way.

Ob serving this divers young women be gan to contrive methods of getting a share of the sum, "for," as they said simply, "this thing of maintaining a social status in the absence of dough is a tax upon the feminine intelli gence." Out of their ambition sprang suits for alimony, exciting public re gret that by no process of law could both sides lose. Philadelphia Public Ledger. Reaonable. The Judge I grant the divorce.
