Death of J. H. Hopkin3. The Tribune is this week called up on to chronicle the death of Mr. J. II. Hopkins, one of the foremost citizens of our town. The sad event took place on Wednesday morning last, after an illness of fifteen days, and was the culmination of a most singular and distressing chain of circumstances. On May 9th, Mr. Hopkins was thrown from a mowing maeoine anl sustained a compound fracture of bis leg. He was of a highly nervous temperament, aud the shock was so great that delirium and brain fever ensued which resulted iu his death. Dr. Olcott of Tucson was called to consult with Dr. Brockway, and these skillful physi cians decided that the case was hope less. After the second day the patient was unconscious, and nothing but a miracle could have saved him. In the absence of Rev. Mr. Whitte more the funeral services were con ducted at the family residence on Thursday by Judge F. M. Doan in a most impressive manner, and ona of the largest, funeral processions ever set-n in Florence followed the remains to the grave.

From there the procession will ga to the other two cemeteries. Here there will be short addresses, singing and other exercises. All are earnstly urged to join in this programme and have a suitable and beautiful Memorial Day. It is hoped the friends from the sur rounding country will ba in attendance. WHY WOMEN ARE NERVOUS. British Medicul News. The frequent cases of nervous pros tration, of utter collapse of the nervous system under which woman "go all to pieces," as the saying is, have caused much thought and investigation on the part of physicians. Certain inorganic substances are well known to cause various forms of nervous diseases which are readily traced to the poisons producing them. Further research leads to the belief that alum is a prevailing cause of so called nervous prostration, for the symptoms it produces on the nervous system after its absorption into the blood are very remarkable indeed. Experiments physiologically made up on animals by Orfila, Professors Hans Mayer, Paul Seim and others, show that alum frequently produces no visi ble symptoms for many days after its introduction into the body. Then follow loss of appetite and other alimentary disturbances, and final ly a serious prostration of the ; whole nervous syR'm. The most prominent physi'iuus now believe that "nervous prostration" ani many affections of the nerves from which both men aud women suffer are caused by the continued absorption of alum into the system. It is probable that many medicul men are unaware of the extent to which salts of alumina may be intro duced into the body, being under the impression that the use of alum in bread is prohibited. Alum, however, is still used surreptitiously to some extent to whiten broad, aud very large ly in making cheap kinds of baking powder. In families where baking powder is generally used great care should be exercised to procure only those brands made from cream of tartar. The alum powders may gener ally be distinguished by the lower price at which they are sold. ELECTRICAL MINING. Thursday afternoon Mrs. F. S. Wele3, wife Mt.

"Shorty" Saylor was warmly con gratulated by the K. of P. boys for his scientific and persistent efforts to secure the next session of the grand lodge Knights of Pythias for Globe. "Shorty's" efforts were successful and the boys will ever remember "Shorty." A sandy complected old thorough bred, who claims to be duly ordained as a minister in the Episcopal church, has set an example in Globe recently which the sinner will find no difficulty in following, by swiggling beer and bucking faro in a way which some times caused the dealer a little con cern. This kind of a freak is not very numerous in Globe. Great Ssorets Revealed which Lead to a Stampede. Official Report. The Arizona Scientific Society held a meeting last Thursday night in the back yard of the corral of J. D. Thomas, it being considered by the members to be more seclusive than the location heretofore chosen and oc cupied for the purpose. The interest evinced by the public in these meetings had assumed immense proportions, resulting in an attend ance larger than could be accom modated at the old meeting place, and something had to be done to subdue the crowds that insisted on listening to the words of wisdom uttered by the eminent members, explaining the re sults of their scientific researches. The atmospheric conditions of this place of gathering were considered sufficient, and the audience was some what abated. The chairman called the society to order. The minutes of last meeting were read by the secretary and ap proved. ; Mr. Bostick, chairman of committee on program, announced that the sub ject for tl.e evening's discussion would be "electricity as affecting ores in their natural state." On notion of Mr. Mulhutton it was ordered and allowed that the discus sion might be extended so as to em. brace subjects collateral with the one announced. Professor Thurston was first on the program, and gave the society the conclusions drawn by him from the facts shown, gathered and condensed during bis perambnlations through the fields of science. It was demonstrated beyond question that currents of electricity had the same trend as veins or ledges of gold-bearing rock; that at the intersection of these veins the lines of electricity became polarized. He held that ignorance of this fact was the only reason why every mem ber of this organization could not hire a hall instead of being compelled to make his public appearance and shower his words of wisdom in the damp oppressive and untempered even ing air, unprotected from wind and exhalations. He wondered why elec tricity had not been taken as the euide to gold deposits, it being so easy to follow a current to Its point of polarization and there to dig, where one would surely find the object of his search. Time and space will not allow the full text of the lecture, but it will be suSicient lo state that the excitement was intense. Several members knowing where to find electric currents, silently climbed over the rear vaii and started in mad haste to get on a current. It seems that noted scientists from CtttUoruia httU been iibteuiug lo pro ceedings through a crack in the wall, actively alert to take advantage of the wonderful information they had so surreptitiously received, and seeing some of the members 6tealthlily de parting, they followed the footsteps of the escaping chaplain of the society, knowing that he, if any one, was onto a current. The next paper was to have been by Prof. J. Green on "electricity and placer deposits," but some one sug gested no quorum, which was found to be true, and the meeting was adjourned without prayer by the chaplain. We expect the next report will be astonishing to the world, for a new era in mining has commenced. HIIif!iiIii!!!!i!iiii:in!iO!!liil!llIli!ll Married In Florence, May 4, 1899, by Rev. I. T.
