5 An Astonishing But True Story "My home is in Sidney, Ohio. 1 l:avc been nearer death with consumption than any other living person in the world, and I want you to read this, so you can tell others. I took a severe cold and neglected it, 1 grew worse all the time, and at the end of two years I had run into consumption. 1 cougnea terribly, lost flesh, could not sleep, and became so dreadfully weak that I had to take to bed. In the following e'ghteen months I gradua'.iy reached the last stages of consumption. No less than seven physiciaus treated me and a'.l j;ave me up saying I vss in curablo. I was rbs-.ln i ly liel; es-. Tne whole lim it wore themse'ves out c for me. One day :n it her a-d sister came io inv bi-dsiJte. and said -1 I liai but a ay or two more to live. Tears rolled down their cheeks as they s-olnd the r.ews. The doctors had declared I was in Hie last stage, and no h niiaa b-ing could save me. 1 was wi.ling to die, but before going to the cruel jrrave. I w.:ntcl to go out and see my dearly beloved town of Sidney once rr.oie. T.iey to'd me such a thing was impossible that I would surely d:e before I got back. But I insisted, aal to gratify my dying wUh, a carriage wxs fitted up with a b -d of pi lows, aid to this I was carried anl slowly driven around Court II .use Square. I got home more dead than a ive. Through the mercy of Provi dence, somtrone brought a trial bottle of medicine said to bj a consumption cure. Nr one i.-n jgined for an instant it was worth trying. But as a drowning person grasps at a straw, so I tried this medicine. I was better after taking two doses. Mother rot more of the medicine and I took it, improving all the time. Today I am as well as any-reader of this paper, and the medicine that cured me was Acker's English Remedy for Consumption. I declare before God and man that every word here printed is true." Thin remarkable testimonial, on file In the office of Messrs. W.

Hunt, post master and merchant of Klondike, a small station on the Texas Midland read just below Cooper, was blown open and robbed Friday night. A hole was bored in the top of the safe and filled with powder, which when touch ed off tore the safe to pieces. The robbers got about $100 in money and $200 worth of postage stamps which hail just been received from Washing ton. The burglar then stole Mr. Hunt's horse and rode away, but it was found in the streets at Pecan Gap the next morning. i A PIPE LINE. A contract has been closed at Port 05-. saw-Mar' Arthur between Mr. Galey and the Port Arthur Land company and Kan sas City Southern Railway company whereby the former will build a pipe line from the Lucas oil well to the water front at Port Arthur and erect a refinery and large storage tanks for exporting the oil.

So far during this month fewer than thirty-five men have been enlisted at the regular army recruiting station at Dallas. Lieutnant Conrad in charge of the station says many young men who feel inclined to join the army conclude not to do 540 ana complain of the omission of the canteen provisions -in the new army bill.

Monday her death was aPin announced and the funeral took place and the body buried in a ceme- terv near Conwell. Some of the resi- dents are still doubtful about the wo man being dead when she was buried. She had been married only a phort time. THEATRICAL MANAGERS. A meeting of theatrical promoters has been held in Albuquerque for the .BAGGAGE STOLEN. The Socorro Chieftain says that Mrs. James Baldwin and mother, Mrs. Hill yard, who passed through that place on their way from El Paso to Datil, report that they left their baggage in charge of the station agent at Rincon and that when they called for it every piece bad been stolen. As they had no checks the chances that they will ever again see their baggage are very few. WE WILL. The El Paso Carnival drew a large number of visitors from Deming and vicinity last week so large, in fact that the town seemed dull while they were away. Every business house in the city felt it, and the newspapers hungered for news. We trust that when Deming gives a carnival El Paso people will return the compliment and turn out.

He was but 24 years of age but had traveled extensively and had found riches, but in his search for gold. be also found death. He was of a prominent and well known New York family. His father was an Enclish- man by birth and was honored with knighthood by Queen Victoria. Young Worden went to Dawson in the early days of the Klondyke excitement and was one of the few who were fortu nate in a financial way. He secured some valuable claims and disposed of them for about a million dollars, but the climate gave him consumption and after returning home he went to Thoe nix accompanied by his wife and sis ter. He only lived a short time after arriving there and the sorrowing rel atives accompanied his body back to New York. SUFFERED I-ONG. Bleeding and in almost a dying con dition. Oliver Johnson rode a horse twenty-eight miles from Steve Mott's ranch in Mohave county to William Magee's ranch and from that point rode in a bukboard seventy-five miles: to Kingman where he received surgical attention which probably saved his life. Johnson received his wounds in a conflict with Steve Mott at the latter's ranch. They quarreled .over nconey matters and Johnson challenged his employer to a fistic combat. Johnson says Mott would not accept and he mounted his horse to leave the ranch when Mott raised a shotgun to his shoulder and emptied the contents of both barrels into his face and body.- Officers are looking for Mott. who may have a different story to tell when he is located. ACCIDENTALLY KILLED. Leo Costello. the 12-year-old son of Martin Costello, was killed at Fair bank Saturday afternoon by the acci dental discharge of his rifle. He had been hunting with some of his boy companions and was standing with his rifle resting against his breats, the muzzle reaching a point close to the heart. The gun was in some manner discharged and the bullet penetrated his body, passing clear through and resulting in instantaneous death. The father of the boy is one of the wealth iest men in Cochise county. . AN ARIZONA TRAGEDY. At Springerville, Apache county, Montie Slaughter was killed by ex Sheriff Beeler and Clare Peary was badly wounded. Beeler was in a sa loon when Slaughter opened fire on him with a Winchester. Beeler teized a shotgun, and Slaughter fell dead at the first shot. Peary, who stood near by, was struck by several shots from Beeler's gun. Beeler and Slaughter were cattlemen, and bad blood exis-ted between them. Dispatch. MEXICO. CHANGES IN CABINET.

Baseball will take a walk in its sleep at the Paseo grounds this after noon. "Bobby" Burns has returned from his vacation in Texas and is stor ing up .the boys and expects to have two teams lined up this afternoon for a practice game. No admission fee will be charged at the gate as the pur pose of thep laying is simply to allow the boys to keep up with their prac tice. The drubbing received from the El Paso team has put a number of the moet faithful fans sound to sleep but it was stated last night that most of them had promised to take a walk this afternoon. Visitors are cordially in vited to go out and witness the sport. and as is generally the case with the practice games the best exhibition of good ball will probably be the result. Mexican Herald. MONTEREY TO MATAMOROS. A dispatch from Monterey says that President Diaz has issued an ofTxial call for the bids for a concession troni the government for the building of a railroad from Monterey to Matamoros. the latter city being situated on the Texas border, near the mouth of the Rio Grande. President Diaz considers that the building of the proposed road Is of great importance, and for that reason the unusual proceeding of is suing a call for bids for its concession is made. The notice issued by the president says: "The subvention that may be granted to the concessionaire shall not exceed $5000 per kilometer, and shall not be greater than $1,000. 000 altogether." It is reported here that the Missouri. Kansas and Texas and the Southern Pacific will put in bids for this con cession. LOST AND FOUND. Henry Martineau. who came down from Chuichupa with Bishop Haws and who went to El Paso, had an tin pleasant experience while returning from Casas Grandes. On reaching this place he found that his valise was gone having in the darkness fallen from the carriage unnoticed. As it contained valuables to the amount of over eighty dollars, it naturally caused him some anxiety: but Mr. Edward Turley, the mail carrier, found it on his next trip to Casas Grandes about three miles wef t of that place, the con tents intact. EI Progresso. THE PRESIDENTS GRANDSON. President Diaz has a grandson, which was born one day last week to Mrs. Luisa Raigosa de Diaz, wife of Capt.
