NOGALES DOCTOR NAMED AS HEAD OF STATE HOSPITAL The body of August Kaufman, auto tourist, from Pasadena, Calif., missing since last Wedncsdny, was found on the desert fifty miles west of Con gress Junction, forty miles south of Prescott, by Mohave county officers Sunday morning. Tho man had perished from thirst and exposure, after wandering for seventy-two hours in search of water. Lillian, a three-year-old daughter, whom he had left in the car with his wife and two other children when ho went to replenish the water supply, died of exposure Friday night Kaufman with his wife and three children, was traveling overland from Pasadena to a little ranch in Pinal county. He had taken a short cut be tween Yucca and Congress Junction. Late Wednesday afternoon, the fam ily's supply of water became low, so Kaufman left his car and started afoot in search of a fresh supply, although his machine was in perfect running order. .He stopped at a point on the Yucca-Junction road almost within sight of the Bill Williams river and within five minutes ride of tho Clar ence Hann ranch, which offered per fect security, officers declared. Por forty hours the wife and three children remained in the machine, a- waiting the return, of the husband and father. Early Friday evening Mr. and Mrs. Joe Ruddy, enroute from Yucca to their ranch near by, passed the stranded family and otierca succor. They took Mrs; Kaufman and the children to the Hann1 ranch, where Lillian, youngest of the three, died Friday night. Searchers for Kaufman traced him from his cor to the spot where the body was found near Signal, twenty five miles west of tho Yavapai county line and twenty-five miles north of the Yuma county line. In his travels, he had passed within .fifty yards of an artificial reservoir of water for sheep and cattle, tho searchers said.

He has decided not to locate in Cleveland, and while in Washington recently took an examination for the American consular service. Out of 225 candidates he was the only one that requested a post in Mexico. It is possible he may take a post there and if not will probably locate in Cochise county to practice law. HIDES BILLS IN STOVE; ROLL CHARRED BY FIRE Much to the regret of people all over the county, we are requested to state tho Navajo County Fair will not be held this year, M. L. Flake, presi dent of the association, giving out word to this effect Wednesday morn ing. Owing to tho hard times, the state fair was called off, thus saving the taxpayers of the state $90,000. While the appropriation for the Nava jo County Fair amounted to only $1,000, the board of supervisors ap propriating a like amount, yet the postponement of the local event will help considerably at this time. Crops are very backward this sea son, more so than ever before since the fair organization was effected and, as the agricultural exhibit was one of the main features, the display this year would have been lacking, both in quantity and quality. So, after all, it was probably a good thing tho fair has been called off. fanowflake Her aid. ANY OLD THING CAN HAPPEN AT PRESCOTT Mayer's man-eating ants have never been described m any history of Ari zona or exhibited in any traveling menagerie, but they are still at large and nourishing. The other day little Billy Moe, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Moe, who is just learning to walk, wandered away from his home in search of adventure. He found it. Not knowing about the man-eating ants of his home town, little Billy sat down to rest near an ant hill. When his mother, attracted by his screams, ran to the spot, she found him covered with large red insects who were calm ly going about the business of devour ing him. The youngster was taken to Dr. J. B. Van Horn for treatment after the ants had been brushed off him and now is said to be fully re covered from his startling experience. Prescott Courier.
