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
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
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.

Flagstaff undertaking parlors and

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.

relatives in eastern Arizona.

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.

is of vast importance," says the for
mer governors letter, "and I want to
assure you, and through you the peo
ple of Prescott and Yavapai county,
of my hearty co-oneration in the
building of this highway, which will
be a great factor in the upbuilding of
that section or Arizona. irescott
