To The Trade: In view of the fact that our government now requires unlimit- ed credit in order to prosecute the war, thereby curtailing com mercial credits, it has become necessary for us, under the prevail ing unusual conditions to make a change in our terms all whole sale firms throughout the country are selling their merchandise on very restricted terms. Under these circumstances we wish to announce to the trade that, commencing August 1, our terms will be STRICTLY CASH, We regret the necessity that compels us to make this change but believe you appreciate the fact that these abnormal conditions are beyond our control. In changing our terms to CASH we will be in a better position to sell goods cheaper and give you better service.

I William Krupp; well known throughout Arizona, and known here in Lordsburg, was shot through the linnri lnf VVorf day night at Wilicox, Arizona, following a 25-mile chuse in motpr cars. Harry Recce, depu ty sheriff of Wilicox, tired the shot, it Is reported, that killed Krupp. The officers wanted to search Krupp's car for liquor. They raced for nearly an hdur, when it is alleged that Krupp fired two shots at his pursuers, they returned the fire, killing him instantly. Krupp left Lordsburg -last Monday, for Globe. Arizona, in tending to go by way of Wilicox, San Pedro Valley, Winkelman, and over the Pinal mountains to Globe, but the officers inter rupted him at Wilicox with fatal results. Mrs. Krupp, who has been liv ing In the Sullivan house in Lordsburg, left immediately for Wilicox, upon receipt of word of her husband's death. The re mains will be prepnred for burial in Bisbee. Krupp, altho sometimes styled "King of Bootleggers," here abouts, was a likeable fellow and well thought of by all who knew him. He was a member of the Elks lodge. Old Time Miner Dead "Happy," a dark skinned son of Ham, porter at a local saloon, became infatuated with an am ber hued woman of "society" who visited Lordsburg recently. Infatuation "got the betteY "of "Happy's" judgment, which caused Judge Marsalis to fine "Happy" ten dollars for illicit love, and the woman got ten days in the city bastlle. Judge Marsalis, in sentencing "Hap- Ey," gave warning that Lords urg was not the place for un lawful doings, and all offenders, irrespective of color, would meet the same punishment if they vi olate the law. Leroy O.Moore, former chief of New Mexico field division of the General Land office, and a prominent lawyer of Albuquerque specializing in land law, died Saturday in that city after a brief illness; with pneumonia. Mr. Moordwas well known through out the state and had many friends in Lordsburg who will learn With regret of his sudden death.1 A farmer dropped in upon the ... . j ... liberty loan committee in town,! toward the close of the subscription period, placed a milk ( an on the table, removed the cover and emptied the con tents. That milk can contained the savings of years, in copper, silver and gold coins and notes. When counted, the cash was found to amount to a goodly sum. "I never put my money In a bank," said the farmer, "but I4vj been thinkin' it over, an' I guess Í can trust Uncle Sam." No doubt he was typical of a much larger element of the population than is actually known. Chris tian Science Monitor. his Martin Keating, who worked in different mines in Grant county and Sierra county in the eighties and will be remembered by many old timers, died in Sacramento, California, on May 20th of heart trouble. He was 68 years old and had worked recently in the state of Washington, but was on his way back to Grant county to pass his lastdayu-whctj- he diodk - He had worked in , nearly every mining camp of the entire west in the early days and was of the band of prospectors and pioneers who blazed the way for the present generation.

Buvens will leave on Wednesday, the 19th inst,, for Albuquerque to attend the gen eral convention and post gradu ate course of the New Mexico Dental society. The doctor hopes toreturn by June 24th. Hats Of to Our Neighbors While Luna county is felicitat ing over having nearly doubled her quota in the recent Red Cross drive, she can well afford to extend the hand of congratulation to her neighbor counties, Grant and "Dona Ana, both of whom more than trebled their quota. Grant with n goal of $15,000, passed $51,000. Dona Ana.whose quota was $4,250, went over $15,000. The achievement of Dona Ana is undoubtedly tho more remarkable, as the big mining companies were respon sible for a large partof the Grant county total, but nobody has any wish to detract from her splendid achievement on that .account. Here's hats off to our nlcghbors, Grant and Dona Ana. They beat us, but It is a beating we could take with perfect good grace and cheerfulness. Doming Graphic.
