A report has reached hero from Ft
Apache of the miraculous escape of
Sergeant Johnson from drowning iu
Mlack Itiver when tho pay escort was

1 Teodora Ellas, under sentence to be
hung and reprieved until March 25th,
has grown fat during his three years
confinement in tho county jail. Ho is
somewhat irrational on occasions and
keeps his cell the greater part of tho
time. The sheriff will undoubtedly
consult the District Attorney in a
short time to determine whether
another examination of tho prisoner
should bo held under the law to deter
mine whether ho is insane. Unless tho
sentence is commuted or a jury finds
Ellas to be insane, the sentence will
have to be carried out on March 2oJh.
Ellas killed Win. Katzenstein, a
police officer, during a fire on Meyer
street, June 2Cth, 1902. Tucson Post.
Shipments to the Douglas smelters
from BIsbeo are now averaging about
2,500 tons dally. They will soon bo
exceeding this figure by near a third.
A year ago the tonnage was hardly
two-thirds of what it is today. At
Douglas the ore received is going into
the smelters just about as fast as It
comes to hand, though recently an en
dcavor has been made to get a reserve
supply established at both the smelt
ers. Such a supply is highly deslni
ble, particularly at those seasons of
the year when storms aro to bo figured
upon in gauging the regularity of
transportation service between the
mines and tho reduction works. He-
Parties coming In from the Dudley
vllle and Riverside country report
greater damage to the farms along the
Gila and lower San Pedro from the
recent Hoods than was wrought by the
great flood of 1891. The Cook, Sel
lick, Scott and Cunningham farms,
located on the east side of the San
Pedro, near Dudley vllle, suffered great
damage, aud it is reported that nearly
every acre of Robert Cranuman's farm,
located on tho south side of the Gila
abovo Riverside, was washed away,
also his dwelling house and stables.
It is also stated that the old River
side station was washed away, but as
it was situated above the high water
of '01 we think the report is errone
ous. Florence Tribune.
Last Saturday night Henry Lovin
brought In from Gold Road one of
the largest bars of bullion ever cast at
tho mill. Its weicht was $40,t00 and
was a clean-up from a ten-days' run
of the tanks. Tho bar was one of the
handsomest and cleanest eer brought
to Kingman. The mill was shut down
for a few days during the week whilo
tho batteries were being changed from
dry to wet crush, but tho new mill was
started up Thursday. The object of
tho new mill is to regrind and amalga
mate beforo tho pulp goes to tho tanks.
The ores now carry considerable
coarse gold that cannot bo reduced to
the desired fineness forcyaniding, and
this is to be taken out and thereby in
crease its cyaniding capacity. Miner.

to say that if the liver were always

Thedford's Black-Draught is so
successful in curing such sickness
because it is without a rival as a
liver regulator. This great family
medicine is not a strong and

cures biliousness. It has an in

Because the liver and kidneys do
not work regularly, the poisonous

Timely treatment with Thed
ford's Black-Draught removes the
dangers which lurk in constipation,

positively forestall the inroads of
