Who was Cain's Wife?
Epitou Tribune: The question as
to who Cain married in the land of
Nod (Genesis 4-16 17) has never bein
satisfactorily answered Out once. Sam
Joues made a vapid blunder at it by
saying that "Cain married the daugh
ter of his father-in-law." This answer
went wide of the murk, for the reason
that the bible gives no account of say
woman s.ive Madam Eve at the time
Cain took a wife.
Some irreverent cuss once suggested
that Cain married in the Needier fami
ly. This was prompted by malice, for
at that very time Biitclicr was under
going that notable 100-days trial for
uumjnisteriul catting up with Eliza
beth, one of the yew lambs of his
church, and the plausible answer was
left for a negro preacher to solve.
Not long after the rebel war closed
(in which you and I were trying to
make sausage meat cf each otherl the
Chattanooga and Alabama railroad was
built. The grading was all done by
the negroes who f.ieetiously alluded
to certain of the white peoyle of the
South as "low down white trash."
Following up the line of the grading
of said road was a lot of negro preach
ers. Prominent among thetu was an
old gray headed darkey who was rev
erently a lluded to as Father Nelius.
Oue bright moonlight night in a
beautiful grove iu Alabama Father
Nelms was about to address a large
concourse of darkies, with a sprinkling
of whites on the outskirts. Having pre
luded his discourse with the remark:
"Having calched a bad cold de other
night I can't 'tempt to preach a sar
mint now, but I will rend a chapter
and 'opinio it as I go 'long.

of grinning niggers at his heels and

Then he read the 4th chapter of
Genesis and, laying down the book, he
continued his discourse:
"Befo' Cain killed his Christian
brudder, he used to raise right smart
truck, but afterward we doa't read ob
bis working any mo'.
"Finally he took his gun and dogs
and went down to dai sleepy no-account
country called Nod and thar he
loafed about and sponged u way till
he lost all 'spect for hisself, family
and state, and de next we read he

Your very kindly mention of your old

In this age of uxpansiou individual
efforts are sooa in-gotten. My life
has not been devoid of errors, bat I
have given my best years to the con
cientious direction of affairs for the
public good and fuel that I have con
tiiuuted my fuil share of endeavor to
ward tne development and upbuilding
of our vast frontier. I am just now
completing my 3uth year among the
western trails, and a few sincere lines
of recognition like those in the Tm
El'XE make one feel kindlier toward
the world in general. I thank you for
remembering me thus cordially.
I lft Washington on Muy 18, and
hope to be on my way to the states in
about a month. I desire very muh to
make a visit to Arizona and hope I
may be able to see Florence once more
before many moons.

Hundred Year C!ubs
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 wouk properly. There
is a way to make it, if it does not.
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is an ideal
strength restorer. If you would be
cured of dyspepsia, indigestion, belch
ing, constipation, insomnia, nervous
ness, try the Bitters. Everybody should
try it to help nature rid the blood of
all impurities. It possesses .. valua
ble curative properties, and as a speci
fic for malaria, fever and ague, it is un
tqualled. Don't fail to give it a trial,
but be sure you get the genuine,
In its straggling efforts to do ten
percent of the business of Floreuce the
Thidune this vreek commenced the
construction of an addition to its al
ready commodious quarters. When
finished, it will have the most com
plete printing office, housed in its own
building, to be found in the territory
outside of Phoenix or Tucson, and
hopes to catch at least 25 per cent of
the trade. Call and see samples of
job-work and get prices.
It is with sincere regret that the
Tribune announces the early depart
ure of the celebrated OlivasOrchestra,
which expects to make Tucson its head
quarters in the future. The music of
these accomplished musicians has
charmed our people for years, and
will be sadly missed. Bat what is
Florence's loss is Tucson's gain, and
we heartily commend them to the
music-loving public of the old pueblo.
Jake Bates was brought down from
Newberry camp last Sunday almost
helpless from an attack of paralysis
that Effected his right side. The Tri

covering the use of his limbs, and is on
the road to recovery uuder the skill

Notwithstanding the warm weather
two well-patronized dancas were given
this week by the Oiivas Orchestra at
Keating's Hall. The young people took

Temporary repairs have been made
on the dam and water was turned into
the canal Thursday, much to the relief
of farmers, who are now irrigating for
all they are worth. Manager Price is
deserving of much credit for the en

Pieacho mountains, near Avenente's

Funeral of John McCariy.
From the Phoenix Republican.
The remains of John McCarty ar
rived in Phoenix Wednesday morning
and the funeral was held Wednesday
afternoon at 5 o'clock at the under
taking parlors of Merrymaa & Uolley.
The funeral services were under the
i auspices of Arizona lodge No. 2, F. and
Mrs. McCarty, accompanied by her
grandmother," Mrs. Susan Cosgray,
arrived la Phoenix Monday morning
from their home midway between Fior-1
enee and Mammoth, having endured
the day before a very tiresome journey
of eighty-five miles across tho desert.
The first news of the finding of Mr.
MeCarty's remains was bronght to
them by a courier sent out by Mr. Dan
Stevens of Florence. The courier at
tached so much importance to his
errand that he urged his horse beyond
his reasonable capabilities with the.
result that it died soon after the jour
ney was over.
A second messenger came after Mrs.
McCarty and Mrs. Cosgray with a car
riage and their hasty journey was
made under the impression that the
body would reach Phoenix yesterday,
and that the funeral was arranged for
yesterday. They left home early Sun
day morning, arriving in Mesa City
late Sunday night and coming to Phoe
nix yesterday morning on the Mesa
train. They are stopping at the Com
mercial hotel and, of course, are very
much fatigued by their journey.
It is understood that Mr. McCarty's
family will be well provided for, as he
was a member of several fraternal or
ganizations and carried insurance in
four of thorn, as well as one old line
policy. Just what the aggregate
amount is could not be learned, but it
is reported to be between $20,000 and
From the Phoenix Enterprise
The last sad rites over, the remains
of Jchn McCarty were held at the par
lors of Merrjmau & Holly yesterday.
The services were in charge of the
Masons but were attended by the mem
bership of the Workmen, Odd Fellows,
Foresters, Woodmen of the World and
Fraternal Brotherhood. A large fol
lowing of personal friends also attend
ed, a glowing tribute- to the popu
larity of the deceased. McCarty leaves
his young widow in very good circum
stances be having been the holder of
numerous insurauce policies the total
value of which will reach $ 27,000. This
is divided amoug various companies as
follows: Fraternal Brotherhood, $2
000; Foresters, $5,000; A. O. O. W.,
f 2,000; Woodmen, $3,000; Manhattan !
Life. Insurance Company, $10,000, and !
au accident insurance company $5,000.
OwiDg to the necessity of having the
remains satisfactorily identified, that
the insurance might be collected, rep
resentatives of the various companies
yesterday viewe'd them.

AN EIGHT HOUR MINE.
Manaoer C H. Cutting Talks of the Troy
"Yes, it is true that the eight hour
system is in vogue on the Troy and
the Manhattan, two groups in the ex
treme eastern part of Pinal-county.
At Globe tne ten hour system prevails
on the basis of $3.50 a day for miner's
pay, while we pay $3. I find that you
can get as much work out of the inen
in eight hours that you would if they
put in the ten. There is a saloon in
the vicinity, but our men do not make
a practice of drinking; they know that
drunkenness means dismissal," said
General Manager Charles H. Cutting,
who has charge of the Troy and Man
hattan, to a Star reporter.
He said he had seventy-five men em
ployed on development work, as
against fifteen a year ago and that be
was shipping high grade ore to El Paso
through Casa Grande, return hauls of
machinery and store supplies for the
camps. These camps are but a few
miles from the Ray properties, but as
to that proposition Mr. Cutting could
not speak, not being in a position to
enlighten the publio on the subject.
Incidentally Mr. Cutting spoke of
the disposition among many to con
demn properties because they did not
blossom out as great producers at
sight. It took years to make the
Duited Verde, the Copper Queen aod
other propositions. At least two
years should be given every property
on development work, systematically
conducted, before a plant la installed.
The properties under Mr. Cutting's con
trol have been worked a year and a
half. They are owned by Boston par
ties. It is the purpose of the companies
to adopt active operations in treatiug
ores, but not before considerable
blocking out is accomplished.
