THE COPPER ERA, CLIFTON, ARIZ., MARCH 15, 1900.
Full moon to-night.
Colorado potatoes and onions at J. &
A. Smitk's.
Straw hate ! Straw hate t Come early
and get your choice at J. & A. Smith's
On account of the increased demand
for brick W. . Pitt will run two yards
this summer.
Bring your job printing to the Era of
fice, where you can get first-class work
done at reasonable prices. '
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.
