Some ob iection was raised to the young peo pie's courtship and some time ago Miss Townsend, in company with her sisters, went to Los Angeles. It wa3 then that the bull was taken by th horns and a secret marriage plauned Thursday everything was gotten in readiness and the bride returned on the evening traiu. She was met at the train by tho irrepressible lover who escorted her to the Modesti build ing, wnere Judge J?ranir, jjuss jmish Frank and James P. Buck were in waiting and tho young couple were united with neatness and dispatch The little romance created quite a sti in town the next morning and many congratulations were bestowed upon Joe. the hero, and his bride, and the clandestine marriage wa3 the general topic of conversation during the day Mrs. Alvarado is tho daughter of O. F. Townsend and is a handsome vouujr lacty, 01 a quiet ana lovauie disposition. Mr. Alvarado is the foreman of tho Sentinel office and has demonstrated that he is made out of tho right kind of stuff. He worked up to the hour of his wedding and returned to his labors the following morning without losing an hour. Joe is young vet, but his heart is in the right place and with half a chance he will make an excellent husband and a good citizen He is industrious and sober and the temptations of late hours and dissipa tion, whicii confronts a young man in this town, have left him unsullied. We extend to him and his young wife sincere congratulations and trust that the days of their courtship will ever remain tne stormiest penou 01 their lives. Mr. and Mr3.

C Recorder Marvin last week received a lelter from J. W, Davia. who is now afc Gape Nome, in company with Al Wright and Roy Sexamitb, Extracts from tlie letter are as follows ; Cape Nome, June 1. Friend Mar vin: We arrived here on the 29th and all are well. Our freight has not been taken off tho ship yet. There being no harbor they camiofc work when the wind blows-. Have been on the beach some and all who work make from $5 to $20 per day. We that is, Sexsmith, Wright, Davis & Co. are trying for a lease on some 6 the rich creeks with every chance of getting one or more. There is nothing that can be located here at this time as it all has been staked over and over. Anyone can work on the beach, how over, as it cannot bo located. There is lots of gold hero but it has all been gobbled by a tew and a lease is the only thing. I have written, but the mail service is uncertain, as there is only one man in the postofiice, which for a village of 15,000 is slow. There was a claim jumped night before last. Seems like old times no titles to anything except by posses sion with a gun. We have plenty of chances to work, wages $10 to $15. As fighting men to hold claims wo can get our own price, as were are supposed to be bad men from Arizona. Tell the Workmen and Elks that I have met lots of brothers here and they all give me the glad hand. Our chances for making a stake seem good, but there will be no place for all the people who are coming here. Ham and eggs cost $1; a good meal $1.50 to $5; beefsteak 75c per pound; flour $6 per hundred; and other stuff in proportion. We will all be A. P. A. when we start to movo which means Alaska Pack Animals There are "nothing but dogs to do the hauling and tbey are no good in the summer, so we do t ourselves. This is no place for crip ples or pets. -The sun sets at 9 :40 and rises at 2 :30cvith good day light the rest ofthe time. The only time that anyone sleeps is when they are played out There are more men fishing for suck ers here than any placel have ever seen. There are few men who want to work. There arc worthy sports and adven turers. The town is wide open and' vild. They bet them in long sacks not stacks. Twenty-five cent3 is the smallest money. Drinks and cigars 50c. Weather is fine. Snow almost gone. They say it will be a terror next month. I will write a few lines for the press as soon as I can see what the country is. All tne gang send regards to riends in Yuma. We talk nothing but Yuma to all who will listen. Yon should here the gang bragging on Yuma her climate and resources and watermelons. Everything in the professional line is overdone. There is nothing wanted ere but hard work. I think this country is all right but no one knows et how big it is. Regards to all. Write soon to your friend, J. W. Davis. the S. P. S. P. HOTEL, Among the arrivals at Hotel this week are: C P Cronin & wf, II Schwarth, Mrs. g A Mustain, Yuma; J,W Oatman, Edith M Stafford, S F; TImm Kelly, Mrs. E Aubury, C W Johnson, & wf, Miss Jacobs, Picacho; T S Thompson, San Gabriel; H T Hall, Phoe; Geo Lufkin, Tucson; F Homer, Oakland; JMWeles, St Louis; A F Guye, J Vosburg, A R McCormick, C T Ger man, G Edward-, LA; C W Com thers, N Y; Geo W Norton, Mohawk; Francis M Neel & wf, Blanche J 3oule, Lyda Little.S A Larson, T M Drenntn, Charles S McNichols, Mrs Anna Sin clair, Mrs. Liza Sinclair, Parker, A T here, and would put dowu a well here I would put in$500orPQ00or$2,000, as the case might be; In sinking a well uear Yuma there is just three times the chance of suc- oess that can be found elsewhere. Gaa escapes from tho ground in several places, oil is fund in a nurubor of wells and in the waters of the lagunas on each side of the river, artesian well are flowing ia a number of places in the desert. If a well were put down here one of three things are sure to be struck, oil, gas or water, any one of which would pay an enormous profit Everything in Yuma points to suc cess of such an enterprise. The laws are all that could bo desired ; the land has been exnertod and pronounced g'od; more than enough money could bo raised in one day to put down a well. All that is necessary is for an experienced promoter or experienced oil superintendent to come ?to Yuma and organize a company and his future and prosperity and that of Yuma would be assurred. j Of course the first man in the field ! tvill make the most money. 3 & Yuma County Records.

Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the re sult, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing bub an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

Owing to the recent explanation of the corporate laws of California, a comment from the editorial columns of the Los Angeles Times appears in another column of this issue, there is ot now in all the oil fields of the United States so favorable an oppor-tunitj- for investment m oil lands as that which is presented in Yuma at tho present time. Here is a field for the locator, the operator, speculator and investor. Underlying Yuma and extending nearly north and south is a well de fined oil field. A large amount of land subject to location has not as yet been taken as claims. Two outside companies have already purchased standard rtg and will soon begin opera tions. Tho laws of Arizona different from California, do admit of limited lia- ilily companies As ia well known there are thousands upon thousands of investors in California and elsewhere who will not invest m an unlimited liability company where they are like ly to lose all they invest and all they possess besides; or who do not care to invest where the large stockholders can assess them out of their small holdings. In Arizona a person can buy full paid, non-asseHsable stock and by no stock jobbers trick or assessment can he lose it. At tne present .time there is no local company in Yuma and there is no one here at the present time with sufficient experience to successfully operate a company. Tf a promoter were to organize a local company ho would receive approximately $10;0G0 from the sale of stock to tho local residents. By this is not meant 10, 000 shares of stock but the sale of sufficient stock to realize $10,000 in cash or in all probability more than enough to put down ouo well. This estimate is based upon talks with the lending business men each one saying, if the company had its main cftice Advertised Letters.
