He was at once taken to 'he sheriff's office where he told his story, which was to the effect tha' he and Simmons had started to walk to Pheuix about 7 o'clock last nigh, going down the railroad track. When they had gone about five miles "hey saw a light at a cabin a short distance from the track and thought they would stop and get a drink of water. While they were at the well a man came to the door and invited them to come in as it was too cold for a man to lie out at that time f ;kt l, th.. il,on.,,.iI.r t w.. on that date or until March 1. 190.1. hugging the zero mark pretty close ilv the provisions of the act of 1893, they gladly accepted the invitation, j that u actuallv and legallv owued no They found another man ii the cabin I propertv in (;ila j - -and all four of them Lata this year.

Simmons and Prank Speuce. for it was he who had invited them in. got into a drunken quarrel over some tri vial matter when Simmons applied a vile epithet to Speuce who sprang up like a flash, grabbed a Winchester rifle and fired the ball missing Sim mons and striking a log in the fire, scattering fire all over the hearth. In a moment another shot rang out and the blood spurted from Simmons' head, showing that the I mil had hit its mark. By t hi - time McLaughlin had escaped from the room and after going a few feet r'opped a moment, when Spence came to the door and called out that he wonted to "kill that other . This was sufficient to put spec.' info McLaugh lin's legs and he rfv 1 o" town as; hard as he could r.j. ..lever stopping till he landed in the Courier office. Under Sheriff Piatt aud Deputy Joe Campbell started at once in a rig for the scene of the shooting aud on ar riving there went up to the door of the cabin and called to Sence to come out. He opened the door, con trary to the expectation of the offi cers and told the officers to come in. On entering the officers saw Simmons lying on the floor in a pool of his own blood, while blood litterly cov ered the floor and old blaukets on which he lay, and blood was still running from two ugly looking wounds in the head, one in the Imck. where the liall had entered and one in the forehead, where the ball had traveled arouud the skull, under the skin and came out. On being asked what was the trou ble Spence said that some one had struck Simmons in the head with a coaling fork and that he had come up to his cabin bleeding like a stuck pig. but it only took a glance to see that the siory was too thin and Spence was arrested. A search of the premises revealed two rifles, the one which had just been used aud which still contained several shells, and an old Spencer rifle. The prisoner and his victim were loaded into the rig and brought to town. Spence was locked up aud a physician summoned who dressed Simmous' wounds, which were iouud not to be of a serious nature. Speuce'.- preliminary hearing was being conducted by Justice Tallxit this afternoon at time of going to press. Simmons was able to lie put on the staud but knew very little ol the circumstance as he was intoxi cated liefore the shooting and knew nothing after the shot was fired until he was loaded into the rig to be brought to town.

Incidentally the contours serve to bring out with remarkable clear- ness the manner in which Lonesome Valley, like other typical desert val leys of the southwest, has been filled by extensive deposits of loose debris washed down from the surrounding mountains and radiating fanwise from the mouth of every canyon and gulch.

Sturges, a prospect or in a mining district of Mexico near Douglas, Ariz., reports a tre mendous gold strike. It is iu the Torres mountains about forty miles from Cos. the terminus of the Naco zari railroad. Sturges is here and claims to have taken out fl.VI.OOO in gold in the last six weeks.

Oldest of Any of the Original Writings Heretofore Found One Passage Translated. A correpeondent of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat writing from Cairo, j Egypt, relates that he has bad the an extraordi- ! privilege of inspecting nary Biblical find. It is a manuscript of four books of the Pentateuch, writ- ten in Samaritan charatcters on parchment. The manuscript contains i 256 folios in ecxelleut state of preser- vation with the exception of the first page, which has been restored. The folios are 28 centimeters long, con taining twenty-four lines to a page. A page containing the date. 11(3 Mos lem era, which is equivalent to A. D. 735, is well preserved. The manuscript is the oldest of any of the Hebrew manuscripts of the Bible yet discovered. Its owner is reported as already negotiating the sale of it to Mr. Aver of the Chicago museum. Comparing the present Hebrew Bible with this manuscript, the Globe Democrat man found several notable differences. Immediately after the decalogue there is a passage of some i: : . t , uiteeu noes uoi iu i ue actual versiot Your correspondent had translated into English. these lines They are as follows : "It shall come to pass when the Lord, your God. shall bring you into the land of Canaan, whither ye are journeying and which ye are to inherit, that ye shall set up for your selves large stones built together with lime, and shall write upon these stones all the words of this book, and it shall come to pass that after the passage of the River Jordan ye shall also set up the same memorial as 1 have already commanded you on the Mount Gerizim. and ye shall bufld there to the Lord your (Jod an altar of stones rough hewn aud not touched with iron tools." The word blank is blurred and looks like Gilgal. George Zeidau, a member of the Royal Asiastic society, a noted author and historian, is ten. I porary custodian of the manuscript. which belongs to Khale el Sabra. Pendingjits final disposition Biblical scholars are offered all opportunity to study it. HUGE TIDAL WAVE.

The surviving inhabitants are left destitute of food, shelter and clothing, all having been swept away by the storm. S. J. COOK DEAD.
