THE COCONINO SUN CRAZED BY EXPERIENCES IN WAR, YOUNG UTAH MAN SUICIDE ON DESERT NORTHEAST FLAGSTAFF (Continued from Page One) horn and blanket, which Dr. Felix Manning analyzed as human blood. As soon as the horse returned, Sheriff Campbell took up the search for Tanner, keeping incessantly at it for ten days. He found where the horse had been tied or had caught the reins In a bush close to Aztec tank, From appearances the animal had been fastened thero about three days, or most of the time intervening be tween Tanner's start back to Utah and the appearance of the horse at Simpson's. The horse's tracks to Simpson's were easily followed, but a heavy ram that had fallen while the animal was fastened to the bush made it impos sible for the Hopi and Navajo Indian trailers Campbell employed to find the man's tracks or the tracks made by the horse when he went to the bush. Day after day Campbell kept on the hunt. The Navajo, when he learned the man they were looking for was most likely dead, quit. Nava jos are afraid of dead people. The Hopi struck but couldn't find any thing. Then Campbell thought of Sam Beeson, of Flagstaff, a skilful trail er. Ho took Sam out on Thursday. Lewis Simpson was with them. Sam went to work on hands and knees, with the bush where the horse had been tied as his starting point. After working for hours, and scanning ev ery inch of the ground around the bush, he cut the trail. The horse had arrived at the bush from the direc tion of a mesa, three miles away to ward the Cameron bridge. Sam kept at the job, losing the trail for long intervals, then picking it up again, always nearer the mesa. Finally, at four o'clock Friday af ternoon the men found where Tanner had got off the horse, where he had remounted, then whero he had fal len off, evidently in distress and probably after he had cut himself. He tried to get on the horse again, but failed. The horse had there deserted its rider. A few yards farther on, Manners decomposed remains were found, where he had bled to death. Campbell phoned in and Justice of me reace u. J. Kiaa, acting coroner, a jury composed of V. H. Switzer, Dr. E. S. Miller, Fred Browning, unnn compton, Tom L.. Uees and Ko land Eberhart, with County Physician Felix Manning and Claude Knight, went there that night. Knight iden tified the remains. The remains were brought to the Flagstaff undertaking parlors and late Saturday afternoon were buried in the soldiers' cemetery. Tanner's uncle, Fred Tanner, of St. Josephs, Arizona, who was in Flag staff to give whatever assistance he could in the search, returned to his home on Friday afternoon, before the body was found. The young man was born at Tuba City, where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Tanner, lived until Jesse was five years old, when the family moved to Utah. Among those in Flagstaff best acquainted with them are Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Compton, who knew them at Tuba City, where John Tan ner had a farm. They were driven in to towivby the Indians at one time and lived at the Compton home for several months. The dead man has several other relatives in eastern Arizona. tongue of the wagon broke, and Bill found himself lyine in the road some what bruised, but otherwise unhurt lhe horses were-finally captured, one of them in Government Prairie and the other at Maine. The spring wag on is still alongside the road, waiting for a new tongue. The Garland Prairie school house now has a fine well of water. Water was struck at a depth of 27 feet in solid rock. J. V. Fisher, who is an old-timer about here, and has beenliving at Fillmore, California, for the past two years, is here for a few days visiting friends and acquaintances. Bankhead & Henderson started last Saturday to dip sheep at their ranch at Nevin. Country Doings Get ready" fori the next big country barn dance, at the V. E. Morgan ranch, on Garland Prairie, on Satur day night, October 7th, where there will bo a masquerade. Start getting your costume ready and make your plans for the big night. There's no excuse for not getting a girl when you can hide your face behind a mask. W. L. (Bill) Hostetter, of Garland Prairie, started to drive his team, hitched to a light spring wagon, to flagstaff last week, in starting down the hill west of Branigan Park, Bill evidently turned on a little too much gas, for the horses started to run away. When they reached the bot tom of the hill, the traces came un fastened. The horses went one way and the wagon and Bill the other. The Bob Kennedy, who owns the ranch alongside the highway, three miles west of Maine, has been eating can taloupes from his irarden. Bob's ranch, by some good fortune, seems to be immune from frost, and he is thus able to raise better garden stuff, and more of it, than at most any other location around here. So far as known, Bob is the only person around here who has succeeded in raising canta loupes. It is thought that Bob made a dicker with Jack Frost, whereby Jack will not nip any of his crops until snow flies and the growing sea son is past. o HUNT FAVORS OAK CREEK CANYON ROAD ! Endorsement of the proposal to build a road through Oak Creek con necting flagstaff with Jerome. Clark- dale and Prescott is contained in a letter received by Homer Wood, from Geo. W. P. Hunt, democratic candidate for governor.
