' The Kelly Bros., recently from Texas, have opened a restaurant in the old Jim Nicks store building, at Duncan. Buchanan & Powers' main camp is now at the Summit between Duncan and Lordsburg. The bridge gang is still near Sheldon. A steady rain fell for several hours yesterday afternoon which will be of in estimable benefit to the stock and farm interests of this section. The D. C. M. Co., at Morenci, have been compelled to close down until bridge No. 10 is repaired sufficiently to admit of coke and coal cars passing over it which will probably be Saturday. J. T. Tong has sold his residence and forty acres of land at Duncan to Virgil Bircher, a stockman of Blue Creek, for $3500. Mr. Bircher will move his family to Duncan for the purpose of sending his children to school. Mr. Tong and wife will move out to the mines. T. E. Hunt, general freight agent of S. P. Ky., was in Clifton Monday, hav ing business with the officials of the A. & N. M. Ry. Mr. Hunt iays that he has had so much business to transact during the last year that he has only spent one month at home during that time. The Bittner Theater Company, which exhibited at the dancing academy four nights, left yesterday for parts unknown. It was probably the bed company of the kind that ever came to Clifton but they played to too many empty chairs every nightand,as a consequence, were stranded hard and fast. They deserved a goed house every night . Between thirty and forty miners are now at work in the Ash Peak district, principally on the Commercial group which J. T. Tong bonded to Capt. Twomey for $40,000 about two months ago. The property is showing up well and the Captain and his associates will close the deal and assume entire control of the group within thirty days. The farmers on the Gila, in the vicin ity of Duncan, are busily engaged in plowing and irrigating their lands, as a scarcity of water for irrigation purposes is anticipated during the summer, on ac count of so little snow in the mountains. The more water they use now the less will be required for the crops later on. Ed. Billings, who came here about ten days ago as the advance asent of the Bittner Theater Co., has accepted a posi tion with the Union Meat Market, of this place. Mr. B. says that he has been tired of the road for sometime and has been looking for just such a town as Clif ton in which to resume work at his trade. All persons in Clifton should avail themselves of the opportunity they now have of keeping up with the doings of the outside world. The El Paso Times reaches here the same day as published and will be delivered at your home or place of business for $1.00 per month. The Rocky Mountain News and the Den ver Republican just one day late and will cost you 75c per month. See L. W. Smith at once. On account of the accident that hap pened to the Era office last week, and having to move, we failed to mention the return of Ralph McMains and bride from Kansas, where they were married about six weeks ago. When Frank left here he said he was going back to see his sis ter, but it looks as though he went back to see some other fellow's sister. Frank was a volunteer in the Filipino war and faced the enemy in séveral sharp engage ments; but says that war is a mere side show compared with getting married. The happy couple will make their home in North Clifton. A few more shines left. Long Tom. Fashion Barber Shop . F. H. SPRINGER, Propr. Four doors south Clifton Hotel.
