Harts' Wigwam First Avenue FEATURE PICTURES Change every Sun.-Tiics.-Thurs.-Sat. The curiosity of visitors to West minster Al)by is often excited by a certain tomb, which, as the tablet above it records, contains the body of Thomas Thynne, of Longleat, who was barbar ously murdered on the 12th of Feb ruary, 1682. Thomas Thynne "Tom of ten thousand," as he was nicknamed in reference to what, in that time, was considered an immense income, was at the time of his death about thirty-four years old. m spite of his own wealth he seems to have desired to make an advantageous marriage and, through the aid of a "marriage broker," he sued for the hand of a well-known heiress. Another suitor for the girl, or rather for the estates she would inherit, was a soldier of fortune. Count Carl John Konigsmarck. This dashing young man was regarded not unkindly by the girl, who at the unusual age of sixteen was thrice married and thrice widowed, but Lady Northumberland peremtorily re jected his pretensions and arranged and carried through the match with Thynne. despite the fact that he was distasteful to her granddaughter. Attached to Konigsmarck's person was a certain Captain Vratz, a bold, daring and absolutely unscrupulous soldier of fortune, who had accompan- ied him in the wars and obeyed him with dogu'ke fidelity. This swashbuck- 1 ler was all too willing to take the Count's quarrel with Thynne on his shoulders, and later explained the lat ter by saying that after sending Thyn ne a challenge by post from Holland, and failing to get satisfaction that way, he determined to make a "rencounter" of it in the street. It must be remembered that in those times a thoroughfare as near the Court as Pall Mall was filthy in appearance as well us dark and dangerous. In the afternoon of February 12 Thynne wen", to call upon Lady Northumberland, tht grandmother and guardian of his wife. Word that he had gone to pay the visit was brought at once to Vratz. who met his confederates at the Black Pull Inn in Holborn.

Mixed metaphor No. 1. Being struck with the humor of the addresses on certain letters received at the Phoe nix postoffice, and being aided and abetted by Postmaster MeClintoek, the R. R. R. has had several little stories on the Jlexicanese lexicon, a work that is being compiled by the colonel for use in connection with untranslatable writings. A copy of the latest Mexican,ese story appear ed recently in a state paper, having been generalized to mean border postoffices instead of Phoenix ones. The story had evidently traveled con siderably since it left in the mail bags that carry Republican's to their many readers. There is more Mexicftnese in the budget. These are McClintock's latest additions to his dictionary. G rondel Glendale. Cresmes Ciampo Christmas. Mallama Miami. Selima Seligman. Poquey Buckeye. Vuiguinbur Wicltenburg. But here the ultimate, final abso lute, the ne plus everything: Flyesta Flagstaff. Xow, Flagstaff is called different sometimes by Mexican letter writers. Some of them actually translate the word into its Spanish equivalents and render it: I tf Palo Parado. The reader who is familiar with Spanish, or even with the Mexican or Spanish way of pronouncing Eng lish can easily understand why a Mexican writer could get it "Flyesta." The back of a bank deposit- slip forms the manuscript for Col. Mc Clintock's future book on the way letter writers' Mexican maltreat English. The collection now numbers some score of words, each referring in a vague way to Arizona towns. them, Vratz, Stern and Boraskl. set off to the foot of St. Alban's Street, where they met the coach of Thynne return ing, a footman with a lighted flambeau preceding it to show the way. What followed seems to have been but the work of a minute. Vratz held up to the driver, and a pistol pointed at him; then Boraski pushed his musketoon in at the carriage window and discharged its contents full into Thynne's breast, and the three scoundrels decamped at once, clattering away up the Hay market. Warrants were issued for the arrest of the assassins and Vratz was cap tured in a Swedish doctor's house in Leicester Fields. Boraski and Stern were also arrested. Officers from Lon don arrested the Count just as he was landing from his boat at Gravesend. After his arrest he lost his self-possession and blurted out: '"Tis a stain upon my blood, but one good action in the wars or a logging upon a counters carp will wash away all that." Sir Francis Pemberton, Chief Justice of the King's Bench, presided at the trial of the four prisoners, which began at nine in the morning. The national ity of the prisoners made a jury "de medietate lingua" (half English and half foreign). Two of them were Swedes, one a German and the fourth a Pole. Even the interpreters could not understand all the languages, and the judges would not pause for every answer to he translated. Konigsmarck, being charged as an accessory, asked to have his trial post poned until the principals should have been convicted. Pemberton refused this on the ground that he had no pow er to separate the trials, though he had discretion. The real reason was to shield the Count, though the Count was not aware of it at the time. The case against the three principals was proved without any difficulty. In fact, they acknowledged the crime, but the trial against the Count failed, much to the popular displeasure, and the shame of this bad acquittal rests on Pemberton who in summoning up skill fully smoothed over the most damning points of the case and put in here and there a plausible explanation. Ultimately, at about six o'clock, the jury retired, and after half an hour's absence returned with a verdict of "guilty" against the three wretched tools of the Count and "not guilty" against the chief conspirator himself. "God Bless the King and the honor able Bench!" exclaimed the shameless and brazen Count. The judges did not condescend to re main to pronounce the sentence of death against the convicted prisoners, a penance which they underwent at the precise spot where the dastardly crime was committed on the tenth of March.

WASHINGTON SHOUPS LUMBER YARD This advertisement is real, genuine news and should be on the front pages of all the newspapers of Phoenix and surrounding towns with out cost to me. You all know that lumber has betn reduced from three to ten dol lars a thousand feet the past few months and most of you know who did it. Considering the capital invested, I am sure I am doing more business than any lumber firm :n Phoenix. And a good way to continue to keep the price down is to buy more lumber from my yard, for as my business increases I can make a little closer prices and cause the bigger fellows to figure closer, too. Six months ago there was no competition. When you asked for the price of lumber you were told that dimension lumber was $35.00 a thousand, and fin ish JT5.00; shingles $4.50 and further than that, you were told to fig ure your bwn bills. We do not figure bills; they all figure for you now, don't they? Write for personal letters, drive to your place and coax you to let them figure even unto annoyance. Who brought about the change? Now, to get the lumber out of one shed which I have to move and enlarge, I am going to sell 75,000 feet of 1x12, 2x4, 2x6, at $15.00 per thousand, and 10,000 feet V2x3 battens and inch ceiling at $20.00, 4,000 feet of resaw at $10.00. Uetter get in on this at once. EXHIBITIONS OF PAINTINGS Transferred to Phoenix Board of Trade From Hotel Adams The free exhibition of desert and Indian subjects j tainted bv KATE T.
