Shumway lost a valuable horse under suspicious circumstances. The party was three miles the other side of Sand Wells in' Gila "county, when they passed two men on foot. A Mexican was driving; at th time and the children were in the bottom of the wagon in such a manner that the horse could not get away without tweaking the rope and when one of the party looked back the horse was gone. Mr. Fhamway could not leave the children to give chase but recognized one of the men as a former cattle king in this territory and hurried on to Mesa, where he reported the matter to Constable Burton, who telegraphed to the sheriff of Gila who promised to be on the lookout for the uien. NEW BABY Mr. and Mrs. Pecheco are the proud parents of a nine and a half pound girl, which arrived Friday evening.

Fred Brackett tested the fire bell yesterday at noon as he had notified the property owners he would do, hut the warning- wm not needed a the only one that heard the belt was the chief himself and he was the man that rang it. It could not be heard in the blacksmith shop ten feet away. Mesa property owners have reason to congratulate them selves in their choice of a fire -chief and if they will give him the support that he deserves. Mesa will soon have one of the best fire departments in the territory." IN SANTINE, MEXICO. Word has beeh ' received from Mrs. W. H.

Fred Decatur, the popular black smith, who has been located at the Crismon block for the last few raonUis, disappeared yesterday morning with out leaving a trace of a reason. He left home to go to work In his usual jolly frame of mind and did not open the shop, but from that time no trace of him can be found. There are no good reasons why he should run away and there seems to be no other expla nation of his disappearance . He was a healthy man, and had the confidence of all . who ever did business with him. His family cannot advance the slightest reason for his absence. LOCALS E. C. Hull of Phoenix, was a Man business visitor yesterday. Among the large crowd of traveling men that paid Mesa a visit yesterday were seen the well known faces of Tom Sutton, Mr. Soper, T. E.

The illustrated songs Were well received and In uldi tion to the regular bill, there was a piano player and fiddler from the oro fesslonal ranks of one' of the troupes at Phoenix. They were easily the hit of the evening. ; o SCOTTSDALE ScoMsdale, Aug. 28. Scottsdale ws isited onday evening by quite a heavy rain and wind storm. The electrical display during the storm was rather unusual though no damage was re- : jKirted except to the government tel i ephone line . The damage was repaired I early Tuesday and all was lovely agin. A few miles north of here In Par adise valley there was hardly any rain at all and it is quite evident that the storm was much heavier in Tempe tlian it was here. A trip to Granite Reef discloses the fact that both the steam shovel and the dredge are doing good work, though the dredge is doing far the most work. We don't believe much In snake stories, but we are not going to let that prevent us from telling one.. The incident which occupies our mind at this time was witnesses a few miles cast of Scottsdale a few days ago. A large red racer was seen swallowing a sidewinder, about eighteen fnches long, which he had nearly killed by biting it on the back a few inches back of the head. The rattler was swallow ed head first thus leaving his means of .defense entirely out of commission, besides, I presume he was much eas ier swallowed that way. Miss Pernie Frazler is going to keep house for her brother, who is in busi ness at Mesa. Mr. I.. W. I.oyd lost a valuable mule Friday. Mr. and Mrs. Dee Callahan left Mon day for their old home in Oklahoma. A TRIP TO FRA2IER SPRINGS Frank Frazier deserves much credit for the manner in which he entertain ed a party of his gentlemen friends from Wednesday to Friday night, at his springs in the mountains north of here. The party consisting of Frank Frazier, Mr.. Ozias of Phoenix, Mr. Walter Callihan, James Vanderhoof and and the writer of this left Scotts dale early Wednesday morning In a wagon with a mule team prepared for several days camping. Guns were a part ot the equipment, but as the trip was one merely for rest and scenery, very little ammunition was taken. The rain Monday night had laid the dust and ' made traveling very pleas ant. Paradise valley is covered with grass, a result of the late rain and presented a very pleasing appearance to the eye. As we traveled north ward the air grew more pleasant until when we reached the springs there was a nice cool breeze blowing and it was delightful in the shade. It is a great pleasure to have an abundance of nice, cool, pure water right at hand, as is the case at the springs and we enjoyed It to the ut most. Mr. Frazier has spent much time and money building th- road to his springs and has it nearly completed. He will soon turn his attention to de veloping more water and to planting some fruit, shade and ornamental trees and vines. He has not yet com pleted his plans but he can make one of several kinds of resort of it if he can get the capital to do It with. The trees planted will depend upon the amount of water he succeeds in devel oping. If he can't develop enough water fTL5TT7 mis article in the store down to cost but we T ff F bSAbT for agricultural purposes he is plan ning to make a sheep ranch of it. There is grass and other vegetation covering all the mountains near there and sheep would have pretty good grazing most of the year. The place Is nicely located for a pleasure re sort, but It will require some cap! tal to prepare for such a resort. He hopes to be able some time however. to do something of this sort. The party started on the home ward journey feeling much refreshed by the cool mountain breezes, about 10 o'clock Friday. A stop of an hour or two was made at noon in the shade of a large Ironwood tree in Paradise valley and home was reached about S o'clock in the evening. V.
