BULL & LEA, Publishers and Proprietors. Entered at the Clifton. Arizona, postoffice as second-class matter. - Do not forget the St. Patrick's Day ball at the Library Saturday night. J. K. Kuykendall, who has been in the employ of W. F. Hagan, left for Sil ver City yesterday. J. H. T. Cosper came down from the Blue yesterday and says that h thinks the rain was general. Frank Weise, the Morenci jeweler, was down again this week, and says that he has moved over to LonMfellow. The deputy TJ. S. marshal was here this week summoning witnesses for the next term of ÍJ. S. court at Florence. Several important articles have been crowded out of this week's issue of the Era. The next will be an interesting number. E. L. Griswold, agent for Wells, Fargo & Co., in Clifton, was thrown from a horse while out riding Sunday, and has been walking with the aid of crutches ever since. There was an exciting runaway down Chase Creek last Sunday afternoon, which terminated at the corner of the school house. 'Other than a completely demolished buggy no damage was done. ' Wm. A. Moore will start to Durango, Mexico, to-morrow, where he has a posi tion with the Avino Mining Co. awaiting him. Mrs. Moore will follow in a short time. A Mexican at the sawmill of the A. C. Co. had the main facial artery on the right side of his face severed while try ing to throw off the large belt with a stick last Monday morning. Surgical aid was immediately summoned and he is now on a fair road to recovery. A bouncing little boy came to bless the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Mole, in South Clifton, last Saturday, and as she is the first, it is rather difficult for the father to assume that paternal air which betokens the love that- he naturally possesses for bis little son; but that he is the happiest man in town is de noted by the broad smile upon his countenance. Bridge No. 10, on the A. & N. M Ey. , four miles from Clifton, was almost en tirely destroyed by fire last Monday after noon. Twelye bents, or 195 feet, burned, and, although every available carpenter in the country was immediately put to work to repair same, it will be Saturday evening or Sunday morning before trains can pass over it. Passengers, mail and express have been transferred and ar rived on time. A very serious accident occurred on the baby gauge, this side of Metcalt, to day, as the train- was backing down load ed . with logs. Through somebody' carelessness too of the cars turned over, the logs rolling off on two Mexican brake men, Jilomeno Chaves and one Roncio. Chaves, who is 20 years old, was cut on the chin and head and had several ribs broken, possibly internal injuries. Roncio, 16 years of age, sustained a fractured thigh and punctured wound of the calf of the leg. They were both tak en to the hospital and, although every thing possible is. being done for them, they are in a very precarious condition. - Constable Billy Hamilton had a regu lar monkey and parrot .time with a Weary Willie to-day as he was taking him to jail. Weary was making a tour of the east side peddling snide jewelry without license, begging and then curs ing people because they would not "come through" when the constable found him. Billy asked him to take a walk with him and Weary to told him to go to the lower regions, or words to that effect. Then the fun commenced, but the constable and spectators were the ones that had the fun. Willie vowed that there never was an officer who could take him to jail ; but he is there just the same, nurs ing a pair of swollen ears on account of having been slapped severely, as he de served .
