, He Wanted the "Stuff."
'Pinal county was represented in the
last -Legislature by onetf the Murphy
breed of Republicans named Coo.
Wright. It was notorious that Doc.'s
vote was for sale on any preposition,
no matter how -questionable, nd it is
also notorious that he accepted bribes.
The Tribute makes 'this -statement
-with the full knowledge Its respon
sibility in a. suit for crirainaMibel,' as
wellaa the pei-sonal' responsibility of
tbe-oiitor, if'U e not tree. It does
-not make the charge 'through -any
personal feeling either, for it has fully
as much respect for Boo. Wright as it
lias for the Piual-coaaty "-"voter who
was bought to support him or the
Federal -official who paid the money.
But this Is merely preliminary ton
little atory told by 'Mark Smith In Tuc
son the other day. It seems tbttt some
honest old -farmer-in Mesa bad been
troubled with what he called ''foul
brood"-amonj his bees, and he wanted
an inspector appointed whose duty it
would be to destroy hlve3 in which the
foul brood was "found. -He eecordiug
ly went down -to 'Phoenix while the
Mule Legislature was in session to see
what could'- be done in 'the matter.
The first-man he met was Doc. Wright,
and he proceeded 'to eta te bis case to
our Pinal coanty -statesman, but was
interrupted with the qaestie:
"Haw yon got any BtanTJ
This staggered the farmer somewhat,
but -he managed to -repSy, "Of course
not, I didu't think it was necessary,
and besides it is such 'difficult material
""No trouble ct-aH no trouble at all
leave it with 'me very necessary to
have the stuff," the Doctor assured
"AH rigkt,"aid the farmer, "I will
go back to Mesa and see what can be
And if it hadn't been that some of his
neighbors were more accustomed to
the ways of this wicked world tbe
good oli farmer would have had half
the fool broods in the neighborhood
'laid urn. the members' desks, as he was
under the Impression that "was wbat

Hon. I. T. Stoddard has sold to

mines, looted on the south slope of
Copper mountain, says the Prescott
Journal Miner. These two mines give
evidence of great value, being located
in the saddle between the two moun
tains, where all tbe ledges in tbe Cop
per mountain concentrate.
The Courier reporter talked with a
very reputable citizen of Jerome who
says he saw -very good ore in the prop
erties of the United Verde Copper Com
pany Junior. Another practical min
ing man said he was in the mines two
weeks ago and considered that they
were very promising properties.
These are some of the properties at
tacked by Gov. Murphy in bis mining
proclamation. Preseott Courier.
George Truman, book-keeper for
, Shields fc Price, has a pet snake which
come out of its hole and drinks water
.from a cupheidin the ex-Rough Eider'B
,hand. As this is Touched for by other
-eye-witnesses, insinuations about any
istronger liquid being involved in the
matter are entirely out of order.
A Florence lady was called on re.
cently by a dude hobo while her hus
band was away from home. "I am a
masher," said he, as he refused to saw
wood for his breakfast. "Well, I am
not exactly a masher," replied the lady,
."bat I always keep one on hand," and

On JulyS Miss Freda Hen-era will
fee married to Mr. Sparks, of Wyoming,
,a well-known northern cattleman who
has frequently visited Nogales in a
business . way, says the Oasis. The
same evening the bridal pair will start
or Mr, Sparks, home in the north.
Miss Freda is one of Nogales' most
charming young ladies, and her loss to
the line city will be a gfeat gain to
the new state of Wyoming.
Hon. T. G. Norris has been in the
east for some time. It is stated that
while at Taylorville, 111., he took a
bath, and complained that the more be
tried to wipe himself dry with towels
the wetter he got. The proprietor of
the bath honse listened to his com
plaint, and replied, "You must come
from Arizona, where they lay in the
water fifteen minutes before they get
Evidence of the'Cleamess of trie Arizona
IProf. Cloveland Abbe, hi Monthly Weather
Beview, March, im.)
Ttoreaily astrooomSrs of Persia, who
were of course ' anaoquainted with the
telescope, and-are -credited with sharp
vision -n and 'great ipersistance in the
accumulation Of astronomical obser
vations, were greatly -facilitated by the
purity of of the-atmosphere in that part
of the globe. The observations made
at Mr. Lowell's fine astronomical ob
servatory at Flagstaff, Arizona, have
-during ; recent .years -established the
fact that no region -of tbe globe can
offer a clearer -atmosphere for the
observation of'thetars than is to be
found in that -ter-ritrry. An indepen
dent confirmation -of this fact is found
in an observation noted in the March
report of the Arizona section. Mr. G.
O. Scott, -voluntary observer at Tonto,
in Gila county, notes that on the
morning of -the 7th he observed a star
before sunrise, closer to the moon
than "any J have been in y.sars." Dr.
W. -E. Day, voluntary observer at
Prescott, Yavapai county, northwest.
of Ton ta, noted "a star traveling along
with the moon all day, plainly visible
untilji. in. of the 8th."
Tlw) bright star seen by these two
obiarrens was undoubtedly the placet
-It usually requires a combination of
-favorable circumstances to see- the
righest star with the naked eye in the
flay time, but we understand these ob
servers in Arizona detected the planet
without any special effort.
Charges Against Prof. McNaug.rton.
From thePhoeuix. Herald.
From the coast papers it ia learned
that very seriona charges have been
preferred against Dr. James Mc
Naughton, formerly of the Temne
normal school, but recently elected
principal of the San Jose normal
school. As given to tbe press the
charges 6eem to be the same old straw
that was threshed over here two.years
ago, when an effort was made to pre
vent the re-appointment of Dr. Mc
Naughtop. to the position he afterward
creditably filled for a couple of years.
The charges at that time were thor
oughly investigated by the Arizona
normal school board and found to be
malicious and without any reasonable
foundation. Since that time Judge
Seed, of the laud court, has stated that
be was in Council Blaifs at the time
the charges were brought there and he
statea that tbey are utterly false and
should bj; b recognized.
Mr. Edison and Signor Marconi ara
said to be doing wonderful work la
wireless telegraphy, but if they wish
to be of real value to tbe state, what
they should experiment in is wireless
politics. We think this would turn
out to be tbe greatest invention of the
age. Harper's Bazar.
In tbe case of J. M. Gardiner vs. J..
J. Gardiner, a judgment was rendered
for the plaintiff, the court holding
that both the farm and the city fran
chise were community property.
An American Railroad In China.
Moneyed men from the United States
have secured a franchise for building a
railroad from Hong Kong to Han Kow,
China, a distance of nearly 700 miles.
While railroads are 'necessary to- a
nation's prosperity, health is still more
necessary. A sick man can't make
money if there are a thousands rail
roads. One of the reasons why Ameri
ca is so progressive is the fact that in
every drug store is sold Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, that celebrated tonio
for the weak, appetizer for the dyspep
tic and sedative for the nervous. It is
taken with great success by thousands
of men and women who are run down,
pale and weak. It increases the weight,
and the gain is permanent and subr

was over Donald Mclntire, who holds
au important office in the lodge, bad
to have the services, of a physician to

was a pretty tough customer, but they

There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases
pat together, ' and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable..
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease, and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science
bas proven catarrh. to be a constitution
al disease, and. therefore requires con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cnre, manufactured by F. J. Cheney &
Co., Toledo, Ohio, is tbe only constitu
tional cure on the market. It is taken
internally in doses from 10 drops to a
teaspoonful. It acts directly on the
blood and mucous surfaces of tbe sys
tem. Tbey offer one hundred dollars
for any case it fails to cure. Send for
circulars and testimonials. Address.
