To (he Free Press : Kind Editors, —Will you per mit me to add a few lines to your paper, that I may express my feel ings toward Mesa and its people To begin, I must say I found a more prosperous town than I ex pected, and its people, especially the farmers, I find energetic and Self sustaining. Something they should boast of, As most of the farmers in the south and east are, cramped with notes and mortgages. I speak of the states that I have visited and lived in Georgia, Alabama. Tennessee Mississippi and Texas. Your irrigation system I think a splendid advantage, notwithstand ing your shortage of water at times. For you are not terrified with the drouths that many Texas farmers experience and the big floods of rain that fall in the east, that not only delays them in work for days and weeks at a time, but makes the weeds and grass crop grow in pro portion to its rams. Your fruits are excellent, especially your peaches, tigs and grapes. The grapes that grow here are the finest I. ever saw. Your gardening, I find an im portant and paying industry. The dairying, also a growing industry, in faet all of your pursuits are good and prosperous. Now, they may not seem so to those who are following it, but from what I have experienced and observed I think you all are doing exceedingly well. Well, a few words to the churches and its members. Don’t tbink that I am to chastise or criticise, but as a member of the Church of God, and to what denomination I’ll not mention just now, but as a be liever in the Father, son and resurrection. 1 find some in Mesa whose trust is strong for the cause and up building of God’s churches, for as we know those that are good will *tand and prosper, if not they will fall. Then, again, some of your charches are not so prosperous. Why do I say so ? Because your wotkers are scarce, your member 4bijp may be large enough, but where are they when your pastor I ha« to close the church and go home on account of not having a -congregation. Your membership will not carry j you to Heaven, neither will hypoc- I racy, so I would reform some of ! you or draw my membership, for , fear some poor way worn sinner was watching my actions and ex pected to get to Heaven on the same ticket. Now, I trust I have hurt no one's feelings but still retain the best of friendship toward Mesa and its surroundings, and hope that one day your little town will be the magic city of Arizona. I am Respectfully, H. J. Sismona. FRANK P. ROBSON KILLED. Just before going to press a dis patch was received here from Col lector Sam Webb announcing that our Mesa raised boy, Frank P. Robson was ambushed and killed on Weduesday in Skelton canyon, New Mexico, by the Nogaies bank robbers. The dispatch stated that the body would be buried on the ground as it would be impossible to remove it. Frank has been one of the most efficient, brave and trusted line riders in the customs service under Collector Sam Webb, and was never known to shrink from duty no matter how hazardovs. He was a manly man, genial, whole souled, big hearted and was highly esteem ed by all who knew him.. His mothei and sisters and relatives are proartrated with grief, and his wile who is now at Fairhanks, will scarcely be able to bear the terrible affliction. This entire community offers its sincere condolence to the bereaved relatives of the murdered officer. Frank died at his post. Articles of Incorporation OF THE GOLDFIELD MILLING AND MINING COMPANY.
