Thomas Hughe- jwewklont AiizooM ItiVttoricul mi-kMy.) About Sept. 28, 1872. a horrible slaughter took place at the mouth, of the gonoita and about 10 miles from the Casa lilanca ranch. A party of 22 Mexlcars en route from Sonora, Mexico, with park trains of mules loaded with mescal and Mexican sugar, went into camp at Calabasaa or the night. The AiKiehes had heeu watching' them, and while eating their evening meal attacked and shot them down to a man, piled their hodles In a heap, put brush on and around the bodies and then set the brush afire. This did not bunt up the bodies completely, but portions of all were more or less burnt. The remains were buried by lVte Kitchen and his men. A few days after Major Sam S. Summer, 6th United States cavalry, was sent with two companies of bu regiment to protect the settlers, which he did for two months, until ordered back to his post at Fort Howie. i afterwards became well acquainted with this officer and for hnee years was pleased to be hl friend. He served afterwards is ma Jr general of the volunteers in commanding a cavalry corps In Cuba .-trvl later in China under Genera Ohaffee, in command of the 6th regi ment. United States cavalry, and on the 6th day of February, 1901. was appointed brigadier general of the United (States army by President Mc Kinley. Major Sumner had only left th valley three weeks w hen the Apaches again made their appearance In larg er forces on the 30th day of Septem ber, I8T2. My partner and 1 went up to Camp Crittenden to get the mail and some supplies for the ranch. After making our purchase my part ner started back to the ranch and about half way to the ranch the road passes over a high rock polni called Woody Hock, being so named from the numbers of persons hav ing teen killed by the Apaches at. this place. In the summer of 1S64 there was killed a complete surveying outilt headed by Wnghtsn and Hopkins and six soldiers, volunteers belonging to the California troops The high est mourUalu in Southern Arizona is named after Wrtghtson an.i it Ls sit uated about five miles west of the Cosa.

"AUNT ." oooocoooocooo bloody point he looked toward the ranch and the valley appeared to be full of Apaches. They could be seen In every direction. His wife and children were at the ranch, so he Im mediately returned to Camp Critten den and told me what he had seen. 1 mounted my horse and the two of us called on the post commander, Lieut. W. 1 Hall, of the 6th cavalry. As soon as he heard our story he had boots and saddles sounded, and In live minutes we were on our way to the ranch, with 25 soldiers, un der Lieut. Hall in person. While en route Lieut. Hall con sulted with us as to the best mode of attack. We advised him not to go direct to the house but along the base of the foothills, about 600 yards distant from the house, until we could see the red devils, and our impression was at the time that the Apaches had taken the houses and killed every one In them. We arriv ed in front of the ranch and from a high point we could look into the corral but could see no one mov ing. About the same time the Apach es opened Are on us from across the valley. We could hear the sing of the .Springfield bullets and see the powder smoke among the rocks where the Indians had secreted them selves. As soon as we had located them we made for the house to see what damage they had done. We found my partner's wife and chil dren safe, but three farm hands had been killed near the house, where tney had ween cutting weeds out of the corn. The Apaches had crawled upon them and shot them, down be fore they could make any light. The shooting had attracted the attention of Mrs. Arrlago, my partner's wife, and when looking up she saw about 20 Apaches making for the house from the com Held. She was a very small woman and the weeds were very high, they being about 200 yards distant when she discovered the In dians and the house about 100 yardJ instant, sue got to the house and closed the big. havy cute before they knew what was up. In the house were plenty of good arms and ammunition and also one sick farm hand. This man insisted on getting out of the house and getting away Into the brush, but she put a ritle In his hands and told him to stay and fight or she would empty the shot gun into him If he attempted to ooen the door of the room in w hich she had closed and put heavy furniture sg;ilnst ft Me concluded to stay in the house, which was strong, there being no windows or doors outwards, also with a dirt and cement roof and 80 Inch walls, thus making it like a small fort, there be ing no chance of setting it afire. These two people kept at bay for over four hours 100 Apaches, the most bloodthirsty devils that ever In vaded any portion of the American continent. We were glad to find the woman and children safe, but were sorry for the massacres, hut Apache victims had become common In the past year or two. All we could think of was saving the living during our Investi gation and bring In the dead front the corn field. The red hounds kept on firing and every few moments we could henr the familiar ping of the Springfield bullets as th--y passed us Xo one was hit but the Indians were strongly posted Ixiilud big boulders high up the mountain side. Lieut. Hall asked us what we thought of the situation and 1 replied: "If you at tacked those Indians up there among those foi ks and boulders we would all be killed and 1 don't think you will kill an Apache. They have over 100 men. as well armed as your sol diers, and 1 think much better shots, and as far as we can Judge they are drawing away from us, every shot showing the distance to be much greater than the previous one." "Well, what would you advise'.'" asked I.ieut Hall, and we answered: "lieave us with a few men to help us. send word down the valley to the ranches below and notify them that a hlg band of Apaches were In the valley, killing and stealing stock." I.ieut. Hall left us with a corporal and four men and Instructed Sergt. Stuart and six men to go down the Sonoita, that being the name of this valley, und notify all settlers and if necessary to remain a few ua.i and protect them against an attack from the Apaches. About the most prominent ranch below was Tom (Gardners', who thank ed the sergeant very much for his timely warning, and he at once set out to notify all the others In the valley. They all made up their minds to collect at Tom (lardners' ranch for a few days for mutual self protection and notified Sergt. Stuart that they hud men. enough to stand off any attack the Indians would make. The sergeant made preparations to return to Camp Crittenden, and ns ho was leaving Tom Gardner said to him: "Sergeant. If you will accept a little advice from an old pioneer, I would advise you not to follow the main traveled road on return to the Co-sa lilanca ranch, for past exper ience has taught me thut the chances are more than even that the Apuches ure watching your movements and will be laying in ambush for you on your return." The sergeant made light of it, say ing: "I am not afraid of 500 Ap aches." and Gardner said, "Voir will never have any chance of being afraid of them, as they will kill you and your party before you can draw your pistol," and such proved to be the fact in this case. The Coxa, lilanca ranch that year was planted with corn and stretched for about three miles right along the side of the road for that dis tance. The summer rains that year In southern Arizona hud been heavy and caused the corn to grow very remarkably, and also the weeds and wild grasses were In places above four feet high on .both sides of the road at a point about two miles be low the house at what was then and now is the Home ranch. The water had cut a deep gulley of about four feet along the west side of the road for at least a hundred feet in length, and tall grasses and weeds had grown up on the sides four feet higher. On the east side of the road corn wai growing very rank, with considerable growth of weeds. This made a very dangerous place for nn ambush, which was taken advantage of by the Apaches, who hid themselves on both sides of the road as Sergt. Stuart and his little troop passed by. The Apaches opened on them a murderous tire from the front and sides and in a moment of time six men, including Sergt. Stuart, were lying dead, there being only one that escaped, he being the company bug ler, who had asked permission to accompany Sergt. Stuart. One more would have gotten away but in urg ing his horse to cross a ditch the horse balked and the Indians came up and killed the soldier before his horse would move. I could hear the heavy tiring, and as soon as the first shot was fired I was satisfied as to what had taken place. One of the soldiers the lieutenant had left with us at the ranch was dispatched to Camp Chittenden to Inform Lieut. Hall of our opinions, but he stated he could do nothing that night, as it was then crowing dark, and would let matters rest until morning. ine oniy man mat escaped troni the Stuart party arrived at the Home ranch. He had been badly wounded In the leg and we sent him up to Crittenden for medical attention. From him we got the story of the ambush and the facts in regard to the attack and death of Serjjt. Stuart and his party. Karly next morning we went helow and picked up the bodies of the soldiers. They had been badly mutilated and the huuds of each one crushed In und lanced through the Jugular vein, which was always done by the Apaches before leaving the dead and mutilated re mains of their victims. The Apaches got away with a line lot of plunder during this ruld. Koch of my ranch hands had good rltles and revolvers and also 27 good horses and mules hud been run off. The soldiers had splendid horses and each one had been supplied with an extra revolver, which guvo euch man a carbine, saber, two revolvers and 100 rounds of ammunition, making their equip ment complete. The death of this soldier party was due to pure care lessness on the part of Sergt. Stuart. They were all brave American sol diers, but did not have a chance to fire one shot before they were mur dered. This was not lighting, but pure assassination by a lot of cut throats. This was so in 90 per cent or the cases of people killed by the Apaches. This was the iasl raid made on the Cas r.lancu ranch for upwards ur live years. During January and February, 1877. the Apuche chief Ho attacked Casu lilanca and In two dif ferent raids got away with 1D0 head of cattle but killed no ono on the ranch. There were many killed be low us on the other ranches In the Sonolts. but the Indians kept us all hustling to keep above ground The News wo pure tru cough laws would be needed, if all cough cures were like Dr. Shoop's Cough 'jre Is and has been for 20 years.

A dozen or more of American girls in vaude ville receive as much as $S00 a week. So it appears that while the pro fessions and tine arts offer allure ments the most glittering prizes are presented in vaudeville. Managers seem to count money aa nothing In the fierce struggle to cupture the best talent. Agents of the American combines are also raiding the London stage for male performers of high degree. Harry Lauder, considered the biggest prize in this class, has oigned to work for Klaw and Krlanger for a spell next fall for $2,500 a week, lxjndon experts are saying that if he had held out he would have gotten $4,000.
