about IU o'clock ou Friday night

commence boring, the gas and oil
escaping from the sand pump
caught Hre at a lamp 15 or 20 feet
from the derriok, communi
cated to tbe latter, ascended the
pump-rod to the top and enveloped
the whole structure in flames. Tbe
foundation timbere were the only
part of tbe derrick saved. Tbe
wooden abed over the engiue aud
boilers was also burned, but the
machinery escaped without injury.
The company lose about $250 in
their derrick, which will be re
paired as soon as tbey oan get the
necessary lumber to the ground.
The contractors lose some 2,000 feet
ef drill-poles and as soon as these
are replaced and tbe derrick rebuilt,
which will take about two weeks,
the work of boring will be resumed
and pushed with vigor.

In Judge Peel's Court, yesterday,

A dispatch from Altar, Sonora,
by way of Tucson to the Altar Gold
aud Silver Mining Company, gives
further encouragiug reports from
Superintendent C. F. Genrlcke.
He bas Informed the company
that no more funds will be re

not ouly pay its way, but begin to
develop for dividends.
Bubies, emeralds, topazes, gar
nets, aud different sized stones
that may prove to be diamonds,
have been brought In from the
country west of San Francisco

That hot weather in Arizona is

The rains three weeks ago did
much damage to farmers along tbe
Gila, in this couuty. Their crops
were partially Inundated and
their irrigating ditches partly
filled with sediment. Charley
Baker says the water at his place
rose over four feet inside of two
hours, carrying away some 450
sacks of grain, besides considera
ble that was thrashed but uot yet
stacked. He lost about an acre of
melons, his vegetables, and part of
his other crops. The water stood
three feet deep inside of the house.
Our river Indians are going to
have a hard time to struggle
through the coming witer. Tbe
regular summer overflow of the
Colorado river was much smaller
tbau usual. It moistened only the
lowest grounds along the river, and
forced the Indians to plant their
crops on these, Instead of on rather
higher land, as usual. The late
rise in tbe river caused by heavy
rains has flooded most of the very
low lauds, and has about destroyed
tbe Indians' crops of corn, beans,
pumpkins, etc. No new crops can
now be put in, that are not liable
to be caught by frost before ripen
ing. Tbe Government does little
or nothing for the poor wretches,
and tbelr condition next Winter
bids fair to be pitiable iudeed.

Gentlemen—Several years since I took
a severe cold, which settled on my lungs
where It remained without relaxation. I
waa then lv Massachusetts, and growing
worse and becoming unable to attend to
my business, 1 returned borne and com
menced searching in earneat for some
medicine which wonld restore my lost
health. 1 consulted physicians and
tried many remedies, but obtained no
help and dally grew worse. I had a ter
rible cough and raised a good deal of
blood. I had profuse night sweats and
severe pain In my side. 1 continued in
tbls state for months.and became so weak
that it was with great difficulty 1 could
walk, when 1 was advised to try Wistar'b
Balsam or Wild Chjcrky, and, to
my great Joy I soon found that this reni
edyliad arrested the Disease. I contin
ued to use the Balsam to the extent offlve
bottles and have, since then experienced
no dlffioulty of the lungs, I believe the
Balsam saved my lire and I shall overbold
It In high estimation.
