Died In Casu Grande, Arizona. Bertram S., eldest son of Edward and Lizzie McMurray. Bert was a bright boy, full of hope and buoyant spirits, a member of the Sabbath-school. Lit tle did he think when he started with his load of hay, that before he should reach home, and within sight, two thunderstorms would meet and that in a moment, he would lie lifeless on the ground. Whether it was the bolt that struck him or the striking of the rack against a post, no one knows. It was a terrible blow to his parents and to his aged grandmother, and a warning to all to be always ready for the mes senger, death. . Pastcr. Maud Muller in the summer heat, raked the meadow thick with wheat. The judge rode slowly down the lane, smoothing his horses chestnut mane, "with wheat a dollar per bushel," said he "this maid is about the size for me." Then he smiled at ber and she blushed at him and over the fence he clum. "Will you marry me sweet maid I" he said, and she told him "yes" so they were wed. Alas for maiden, alas for jndge, for the old designer and the wheat field drudge. Lord pity them both, and pity us all, for Maud didn't own the wheat at all. And the judge remarked when he heard the cheat. Don't talk to me about dollar wheat.' To the Editor Florence Tbibihje. Dear Sib: For the benefit of the Florence Enterprise and its readers, and in answer to its mention of my defeat as a candidate for the Legisla ture, will say, that the domination was at my disposition, and had I aspired to the honor would have been selected by a handsome majority, the 17 votes cast for me were in every particular complimentary.

We reaffirm our allegiance to the National j platform of the Democratic party adopted at Chicago In 1896, and specifically declare our adherence to the paramount purpose enunciated in that platform, viz: A return to the constitutional system of free and un limited coinage of both gold and silver as money at the ratio of 16 to L without wait ing for the consent of any other nation. We reaffirm the unalterable adherence of the Democratic party to the principles on civil and religious liberty as proclaimed by the founders of our republic V We refer with pride to the fact that the County of Pinal under an administration Democratic In every department since Jan uary 1st, 18ST7, has paid off aiiHndebtednes In allowed and outstanding claims for the year 1896 left by its predecessors In office In the sum of S8S00. has reduced the running ex penses of county government for the year 1897 to an amount more than $6000 less than for the year 1896, and we pledge our nomi nees, if elected, to a continuance of busi nesslike and careful conduct of oounty af fairs so that with the beginning of the year 1899 we will do the business of the county on a cash basis, and still further reduce the tax rate for the year 1899.

And whereas: Said appropriation Is but the beginning of a great step taken In the reclamation of our arid lands, and in the ad vancement, progress and enriohment of our people, and to obtain which requires the constant and watchful attention of a Dele gate to Congress who is able and thoroughly versed in every detail of congressional no tion ; . And whereas: The Hon. Marcus A.
