and then cool off before work could be
commenced on it again. The tunnel
is built through limestone, which tbe
Are turned Into lime, wblch Is very
soft. It Is extremely dangerous to
work in tbe tunnel, and the workmen
are demanding and getting a dollar an
hour. It is Impossible to say when
tbe company will be able to resume
traffic. In tbe meantime tbe Santa
Fe limited continues to travel over
the Southern Pacific lines, as well as a
great deal of frleght. All tbe train
men on tbla division are getting rich
wltb tbe overtime they are charging
up on account of the extra Santa Fe

The Unhed States grand Jury at
.Santa Fe which has been Investigat
ing the rumors of bribery in the legis
latures, has made its report to the
court. It found no indictments. It
eported that it had no doubt tint a
great deal of bribery had been com
mined, but as it was so long ago all
the witnesses had ''forgotten" about
any specific case. According to its re
port the most of the bribery had been
committed over bills providing" for
divisions of counties, removing county
seats, fuudiog indebtedness of the
territory and reducing the fees of
county officer. It seem to think that
bribery. had been committed both for
and against nil these bills. Ii recom-
mendudto the court the calling of a
grand Jury In Santa Fe about the
time the next legislature adjourns,
when the, matter would be fresh In
the n 1 1 rL- of witnesses, and before
they bad time to cool off, then If the
next legislature is as bad as th I:t
two have bad the reputation of being.
It U quite probable indictments
would be found, and if they were
not found the scandal on the good
name of the territory would be
averted.
Tbe Wlllcox News baa the following
account of a fatal accident which
occurred Sunday: By an unfortunate
accidental Duval, the first railroad
siding west of Wlllcox, a brakemao
named James Lutber IUirkett, was In
stantly killed Sunday by being run
over by a heavy train. He had just
cut the train loose from the engine,
which was to run to this point for
water, and It is supposed that lo
attempting to set the air brake he
lost bis balance and fell under the
wheels. The body was so mangled
that it was brought to Wlllcox In a
blanket. Sunday night a telegram
was received, requesting that the
remains be forwarded to bis family
at Sao Jose, California, but owing to
their condition early Interment was
rendered imperative. The body was
therefore placed In a handsome casket
by Agent Lean and deposited In tbe
Wlllcox cemetery. The coroner's in
quest resulted in a verdict of accldeu
tal death. Mr. Burkett was a native
of North Carolina, aged thirty two
yeirs. The accident happened on bis
third run over this division.
Last week W. B. Walton wrote the
Liberal that he would soon give his
undivided attention to tbe Doming
Headlight. Tbe next day after writ
ing this letter be sold the Headlight
to Messrs. Whltten and Long, who
have ordered new material and
promise to have the Headlight out
this week iu lis usual size and with Its
usual brilliancy. The Liberal ex
tends to the new proprietors Its best
.wishes for a prosperous business
It Isn't mneh tremble
for a really healthy mu
to be good humored.
Jollity and, exbnSerant health sre a pro
verbial combination. The hearty man who
is always lnnpr HiiiR doesn't have any trouble
with his digestion. It has been said that
laughing makes people healthy. The truth
ia that health makes people laugh.
It ia impossible to estimate the tre
mendous influence of health upon human
character. A man with a headache will
not be in a happy, contented frame of
mind. A man who suffers from a weak
atoraach and an Impaired digestion will sit
and grumble through the best meal ever
prepared. A bilious man who is not a
bore, ia deserving of a place in a museum.
A nervous rasa who is not petulent and
fault-finding is a curiosity. All these con
ditions lead to grave diseases, when the
victim becomes not only disagreeable, but
dependent as well. A wise wife will real
ize that while the old saying that a "man's
heart is in his stomach," Is not literally
true, it is a fact that his stomach sweetens
or sours his character according as it is
healthy or unhealthy. Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery is the best of medicines
for the conditions described. It makes
the weak stomach strong, the impaired
digestion perfect, invigorates the liver,
purifies and enriches the blood and tone
the serves. It tears down half-dead, inert
tisanes and replaces them with the firm
tnuscular tissues of health. It builds new
and healthy nerve fibres and brain cells.
It dissipates nervnnsneas and melancholy
and imparts mental elasticity an 1 courage.
It is the best of all known medicines for
nervous disorders.
"Through your skinful treatment I am once
more a well man," writes I. N. Arnold, Ksq., of
Gaudy. Logan Co.. Nebr. I suffered for years
and could not find relief until I commenced
tn king your '(.olden Medical Discovery.' I suf
fered with constipation and torpidity of liver
which resulted in irritation of the prostate and
Inflammation of the bladder. I had only takes
one bottle when I found great relief. The mcd
cine has effected a permanent cure."
Charlie Gardiner was in the city the
first of the week. He says that he
has found some fine placer ground a
few miles west of Gold Hill, which
runs from five to thirty cents per
pan. He has located seven claims,
and when he gels all the gold ex
tracted from these claims ho will be
rich. He recently shipped four
ounces of dust from these claims at
Silver City.
Col. "Spud" Murphev returned the
first of the week from Chicago where
he had been to have his eye treated.
The treatment was partliilly success
ful as he is able to sec a little, l-.UL 't
is probable he will never recover tl.e
full use of the Injured eye.
Mr. F. C. lielhig, n prominent drug
gist of Lyuchiiurg, Va., says: "One
of our citizens was cured of rheuma
tism of two years standing, by one
bottle of Chamberlain's pain balm.
t his liniment is famous for its cures
of rheumatism; thousands have been
delighted with the prompt relief
which it h lords. Fur sale by the

Messrs. F. J. Cheney & Co. Oentle-

preparation that I could prescribe

can Hall's Catarrh Cure, manu
factured by you. Have prescribed it
a great many times and its effect is
wonderful, and would say In conclu
sion that I have yet to find a caso of
Catarrh that it wonld not cure, if they
would take it according to directions.
Yours Truly,
