A Visit to tfc.Rj Off iofals.
" W. Y. Price and C D. Reppy, who
were delegated by -the citizens' meeting
to visit the officials of the Bay mine
and- learn the intentions c.f the com
pany regarding the projected railroad
from that property, performed the
duty imposed tpon them last SatrfrJty.
-"They were cordially received by
General Mavnagei Alexander HlHnd
his able assistant,' Mr. II. P. Winslow,
who assured them that the matter of
railroad building, except the narrow
gauge between the mines and the
concentrating mill, some-six "or seven
"miles, was a matter to be determined
in the future by the directors. The
proposition to grant right of - way
over the county roads, made' by -the
supervisors, Mr. -rflill considered- a
liberal one, and he expressed - himself
as pleased with the spirit of the resolu
tions adopted. by . the public meeting',
a-nd he would be' glad at any time to
meet the people of Pinal county 1 half
way on any proposition for--the --adp
vanceinent , of its interests. -He weald
lay the whole matter before thd'direct
orsof the company, a number of whom
were expected jpe from London lu
November, lie had litt!o docbt that
wlia a railroad ia built it would cotue
to Florence, and- from that point' to
either Casa Grande or Mesa.. - In the
meantime the Ray company will buHd
its narrow-gangs to a place where trac
tion engines'can -be used. When ''it
can be shown thai the- volume of bosi
ness will warrant it, either the Soath
ern Pacific or Santa Fe -will-build -the
road. Mr. UiU- thought it -would be
advisable for all interested to collect
data of amount of business ' -the -new
railroad would obtain and submit the
matter to the officials of the big trunk
lines. ' One or the other would certain
ly see -the advantage of- securing the
business of this ' great - miking and

The young gentleman of Florenee

.. which was one -of the most successful
social events of the reason. The
: music by the Oliras orchestra was all
. that could be desired ; the manage

delicious,. It went to prove that
Florence is alive in societv as well ts

C Jj. Lance and Keith A. Daniel of
London are guests at the New Orndorff.
These gentlemen are members of the
English company owning the Mam
moU mine and are here on business
connected with the property. They
leare for Schultz and Mammoth
morning to inspect the mines and mi!!.
While they are naturally non-committal,
it is generally believed that their
visit at this time is an indication of the
early installation of an electric power

'The"revia a good thing about the
wanderkijr Arizonan; he knows when
to go "home while he still has enough
'to gefr-4aie with. And though old
Neptune roars ever so softly and the
Unywtfvss and gentle swells beckon
atf ebebanlingly, one must dally no
morein-their soft embrace. Our party
has -taken in Santa Barbara r.nd
Ventura with pleasant results to them
selves. The two cities have' yet not
-been-heard from. A dear old fatherly
monk- who shrugged his shoulders and
spread his hands, palms upward, added
to the interest of the inspection of the
old '-mission at Santa Barbara. The
old convent there is indeed worth see
ing ; it is beautiful, historical and in?
teresting, with its garden and towers,,
the fountains and antiquities. One
has an uncanny feeling when told you
are standing over the bonea of-star
feur thousand buried in thateoovent
garden, a catacomb on a modern scale,
i'ut even the solemnity of the thought
could not keep down the boastful
spirit which claimed so mcch; c?(?,r
nii-h)OQ in Arizoua, our Sun Xavier.
Tue visit of inspection to the bel
sugar factory at Oxnurd did not prove
nearly so interesting to part of the
tourists as did the old mission and-the
oil wells iu tue sea ai tuminrland..
Now that is really wonderful jjuiiip
ing up oil out of the sea, and brought
to -mind the fairy story, ao deax to the
days of our childhood, oi the little old
man who owned a a&U milt, ia the
bottom of the sea, and that's- why the
ocean is salty.
To the writer the- favocite vehicle,
par excellence, to ride in is a street
car. But when you have a. Sua obser
vation car, both gorgeous- within and
without, and a party of twelve,, nine
of whom are Ar 120 nans, and are
whirled about Los- Augeles for two
hours and a half , personally conducted,
and shown all the beautiful sights, all
for 23 cents per head, what greater joy
could man or woman ask. Not being
able to answer-that question nothing
more can be said about that trolly
ride. The beautias and glories of
Mount Lowe, P-asadena and Catalina
Island were viewed; by the critics and

A month of this on ting has been
given to Santa Monica, South Beach,,
where whea one wasn't dipping in the
surf one was- gadding up to Los An

Stowe was visited She is. comfortably

May warmest wishes for his success
help hiia reach his goal and become
what be U nuinfutUy striving to be, the
support of hi widowed mpther.. Mrs.
H. l. dwida-y was found in her old
home on Palm street, herself, tnotbiT
and ehildres all well.
But the ocean holds one by a charm
all its own, and much of the time is
spent on the beach. A few days of
this time was enlivened by having
neighbors in W. R. Stone and family.
The resemblance of Piual county's Dis
trict Attorney to Pinal: county's editor
when disporting in the water was
striking most striking.
That glitteting green and silver
water is still there; the sun still goes
down in its cool waves with a slumber
robe of crimson and gold, but one
turns away to say, "After all, there is
no place like home."
So adios. dear reader, till we meet.

A Great English Statesmen's Secret.
The secret of a celebrated English
statesman's long life was his systema
tic way of eating. Every bite of food
was chewed thirty times before swul
iowiog. The result was he naturally
enjoyed good health. Most men and
women bolt their food, and eat things
which were never intended to be eaten.
They become costive, have a bad com
plection, lose flesh, are irritable and
nervous, and the first thing they
know they are "pluyed out." It is
gratifying to know that Uostetter's
Bitters cures stomach troubles. It is
a purely vegetable medicine that has
stood the test of many years. It cures
cases which seem to be hopeless

Peart Hart Escapes front the Hm County
From the Tucson Star, Irtli.r
Early yesterday morning Pearl .Hart,
the woman stage robberP escaped from
the county jail, and at this writing has
not been eaptwed. Pearl Bart was a
prisoner of the PI Dal uoty officers,
but was taken from the Florence jail
and brought to this city as ths;com
modatioofvslj tlve Pinal coanly jail are
not suitaWeforwomeo prisoners. Since
her crn5nemrit hers Slierift Wakefield
and his dt-putitt have usedevery pre
caution fr lier safe keeping-, and they
naturally feel rr.uuLi ehagriued over her
Sinoe her confinement in the Pima
con nty jail Pearl ll rt has oecugied a.
room directly over the- reap- room, of
the eonnty recorder's office. This
room adjoins the-small room, contain
ing the stairway leading uptbe tower
of the building. A. door opens from
the small room on to the second floor
of the court house at the head of the
stairs, leading down to the main en
trance. Between the rooms, men
tioned there is nothing but a lath and
plaster partition. The. door leading
from the tower into, the court house
is generally loeWed, but on the night
of the escape it apparently was not. It
is evident that after everything was
quiet some one entered the court house,
walked up the stairway and entered
the tower room through the unlocked
I door. It was the work of but a very
few minutes to cut a hole through the
wall into Pearl Bart's room. She held
a sheet to catch the plaster that fell on
her side. After the hole was out
through she put a. table underneath,
and placing a chair upon tl.aterawledi
through the hole. From the size of
the aperture it is evident that Pearl
Hart must have required considers bl e
help in getting through. After join
ing ber accomplice in the escape, it
was only necessary to -opto toe door
and descend thn stairway into the
street.. As there is no night watch
man for the -:ourt house outside the
jail, it was an easy matter tcgain the
street without detuction.
