FRENCH FROM DEATH
Four Year Old Son of 0. S.
French Is Run Over for Second
Time in Few Months By Auto
mobile; Narrow Is Escape.
Little four-year-old Jack v French,
son of O. S. French, must hare a
charmed life. On February 12 the lit
tle chap was run down by an automo
bile in Upper Main Street. For a
while It was thought he would be
permanently paralysed. With a part
of his right side still numb but the
balance of his' small body very active,
he encountered another automobile
Sunday and again narrowly mtased
His injuries constat of a, badly
bruised right leg and side. The au
tomobile, driven by Doc Larkln, of
Johnson Addition, was coming, trav
eling up the canyon. Larkin started
to turn tbe corner near the Loretto
academy. As he waa turned around
lie suddenly saw a small boy with a
pushmoblle In bis way. He applied
the brakes but before the car could
be stopped the four wheeled wagon
waa hit and the boy under the wheel.
Larkln backed off tbe prostrate form
and soon the Doctor was on band. No
bones were broken and tbe youngster
waardeclaring, yesterday, that he felt
Witnesses to the accident say that
though tbe autoist did not sound his
horn, the fault lay with the boy. The
same witnesses declare that the
youngsters driving pushmobiles down
tbe hills of Ilisbee, and especially
those abutting on the principal streets
are in constant danger of being kill
ed. The same complaint has come
from other parts of Blsbee and from
drivers bf vehicles along Naco road.
Along Tombstone Canyon the boys
come off the hills, with tbe pushmo
biles, at a very rapid rate. They rush
into the roadway and run the risk, at
all times, of hitting an automobile or
u fast driven buggy.
The boy's father, in speaking or the
natter last evening, salt! that sane
thing should be done to eliminate the
pushmob.lles from the city's streets.
He declared that it was as much a
protection for youngsters aa far tbe
drivers of vehicles. French added
that a number of parents would not
nermti their children to drive the
pushmobiles, if they know It, but that,
oftentimes, tbe boys smuggled them

Flour Is Confiscated,
The owners of the flour mills In Vil
la territory fn Sonora, have been noti
fied that under no conditions are they
to dispose or their flour to civilians,
as all available flour must be held for
the use or the Maytorena army. For
this reason many farmers who have
completed the harvesting ot their
wheat crop are not bringing any of it
to the mill to be ground. The primi
tive method Is used instead; the wom
en grinding the wheat laboriously with
the handatone mills.
To the south of Nacozarl the people
are entirely without beans, sugar, cof
fee, soap, oil or candles, as well as
many other of the common articles
of household necessities.
The majority of the towns are under
martial law and civil authority has
been entirely abrogated. In Cumpas
and vicinity it Is Impossible to obtain
passports, as there is no official there
with authority to issue them. Any

his chances of getting through safely.
