Mrs. Manuela Mendozadied Wednes day night aud was buried Thursday. The rains have come at last and the drought which has caused so much havoc and consternation for over two years is a thing of the past. The fall and winter of 1893 were unusully dry and the spring of 1Q0O opened up with dismal prospects. Cattle were dying, feed was scarce and water was still scarcer. The summer came and nearly passed without any relief. . It was not until the latter part of August last year that the raius appeared. The fall and winter witnessed copious precipita tions. A great many cattle were ship ped out last winter in anticipation of the continuance of the drought. The ranges in many places were almost de pleted. But the overstocked sections received a much needed rest and gath ered new life and strength in the res pite. The grass roots were in splendid shape this spring and summer; all that was necessary to make them bud out again in their primitive glory was moisture. Range News. Colonel William, Herring has filed a brief in the Mammoth receivership matter as baa also Judge Baker and Judge Doan bas now the qnestion under advisement. A decision will be rendered next week. Several Mexicans were arrested Saturday on complaint of Special Agent S. J. Holsinger, of the interior department, for digging up and selling prehistoric relics. Deputy Marshal C. r . Smullin made the arrests and took the prisoners to Prescott. There are not a great many white people who are aware of the existence of this law, and these . poor people, who , can neither speak, read or write the English language, were entirely ignorant of it. Further, they had been taught by attaches of the Smithsonian Institute where and how to dig for these relics, and presumed they had a perfect right to do so for their person al benefit. They are poor and their arrest and taking to Prescott, to be turned loose, worked quite a hardship Selby Works Looted of $280,000. San Francisco, Aug. 6. One of the most complete and daring robberies in criminal history occurred at Vallejo Junction last night when the strong box Of iheSelby Smelting works was looted of 230,000 in gold bulliou. la their haste the thieves left two bricks on the shore of the bay. The robbery was accomplished by dig ging a tunnel from outside under the vault. This was evidcutly the work of weeks. After securing the gold the thief or thieves carried it presumably to mile from the bay where they embarked, leaving no clew behind. It is not known whether one or a dozzen men executed the robbery. "It is the boldest robbery in the his tory of the state, "said Captain of Detec tives Seymour, "and from all informa tion that can be obtained at this time there is absolutely no clew to the rob bers. In fact, we do not know whether the crime was committed by one man or more; The probabilities are, howeve r, that more than one man was concerned in it. , "We have taken all precautions to capture the robbers. Telegrams have been sent to every sheriff in the cen tral part of the state, ordering him to search for the missing gold, to over haul every boat and steamer within his jurisdiction, to fcearch every rail road train aud stage coach passing throughout his county aud to examine every one taking passage at different railroad stations throughout the state. We can do no more than this, and I think that with the procautions we have taken, do stranger can leave the state until examined. Surely, if any attempt is made to ship the bullion by any of the ordinary modes of convey ance we will . discover it. On the whole, I believe the chances are good for capturing the robbers." Death of Wm. C. Stahle. - Mrs. Thos. Buchanan returned to Desert Station last Saturday, being driven home by Taylor Branaman. la Receiver for Cobre Grande. ( New Yokk, Aug. 7. Justice O'Gor tnau iu the supreme court to-day, on an application of the attorneys for Axel lialenberg, held that a receiver should be appointed for the Cobre Grade Copper company whose mines are in Sonora, Mexico, lialeuberg is a stock-holder in the company and alleges his rights have been infringed by the eompaoy ' president. A receiver will be appointed later. From the Tombstone Praspeutor.l Last night about 12 o'cloek, Wm. C. Stahle passed to the beyond, having re ceived a stroke of apoplexy the day previous, from which he did not revive and death came as he wished it a painless one. The deceased has been a resident of Tombstoue for many years and perhaps as familiarly known in this section as any citizen of the county. Instinctively and intuitively a gentleman and as naturally of jovial disposition, he won the friendship of a legion of acquaintances. Though his own greatest enemy, he was incapable of inflicting upon others a wound or a harsh and unkind word, leaving no scar behind. The deceased was schol arly and well versed in law and cur rent topics. He served one. term by election as district attorney of this county and twice as city attorney. In Moutaua and other states he also held official positions which he creditably filled. In the death of one who was so universally well liked, it is pardonable iu the charitable condoning of a fault and emulation of the virtues and noble traits of a good character which are lessons that should not be lost. De ceased has relatives in Illinois who were notified of his demise. The funeral is set for 5:30 p. ni. today from the undertaking parlors and friends and acquantanues are respect fully invited to attend.

During the recent floods in the Gila the river cut a sew channel around the dam at the headgate, and the result is the canal is without water. Manager W. Y.

From the Denver Mini tic Reportor. We notice that many mining districts are suffering from excessive prwes be ing placed on prospects. A question frequently asked is: "What is the value of a prospect?" The answer is, of course, that from a practical busi ness standpoint a "prospect" has no real immediate value; its value, is entirely prospective. The sensible method of handling prospects is that of the bond and lease. Tlie bond is fixed at a fair price, so that the man who takes hold of, the prospect and puts his good money into the ground, and risks it, can see a fair show of get ting his money back with. a good profit, if he strikes a mine. In other words, the prospector and the lessee should, divide the min0 (it one is found) be tween them. This is equitable. In a backward district, in which no hoom is going on, i,!, is foolish to ex pect the lessee to pay money down, to the prospector in order to find the lat ter a mine. No.sensible man would do that, and any prospector who asks it is injuring himself and the district. On the other hand, in a boom district, where sales ot prospects are being made daily, it is not fair to ask the .JospecVoo to tie. op hi property for for any length of time without a cash consideration. Or if a prospector is taking out pay ore. it is not a fair prop osition to make. In this latter ease the cash consideration should be such that a decent living, at least, is assured the prospector during the lite of the lease. The question, therefore, of- the terms of a bond aud leasd are determined by conditions of the locality and the pros pect. No prospector should tie up his property unless the lessee, agrees to perform certain work to develop the prospect. That is not fair to the pros pector or the district.. s?u JV. . jf.ty. .sis. ct He, .. j'. v. .515. y. sit, !j$i5':SK ?:!? w w w ' w" St!, w' ..VJ. w .. w !, W GENERAL FREIGHT CONTRACTORS, Florence, Arizona.

BARKER I 1 GENERAL MERCHANDISE, Hundred Year Clubs Are becoming numerous. The idea promotes longevity. It is interesting to note that the means through which long life is to be obtained is food and the stomach. Long life and good health, are not possible unless the stomach does its work properly.
