is wonderful-how quickly it stops a cough of

charm. I suppose some of the folks would
have run into consumption before this if 1
had neglected to keep a bottle ready all the

of using any thigg el& for throat and tong

A DESERVED CpMPLJMEJ4T.
We clip the following from a Mis
souri paper which says some nice
things about the newly elected Demo
cratic territorial c ntrnl committee
man:
Col. John B. Breathitt, big of build
and with a heart several sizes too large
for the body of an ordinary map, ar
rived in Jeffefton Uity yesterday
mo) ning and wdi spend several days
here, greatly h tli delight and grati
hcai.ion of his fronds. He has not
heeu here for several years and was
given an ovation on all sides.
The Almighty may at sorpe tipio in
the past put 01 eqrth a man of larger
heart and more generous impu ses
than Col. Breathitt, but it hasn’t hap
pened in this generation.
“001. Breathitt went to Arizona
soon after serving a term as a m mber
of the Railway and Warehouse com
mission of this state, tjle h Id »n
important federal position und
Cleveland, and atter retirng from of !
lice win-n the Mcßmlay adminintra
tion came i,i he became a quizes, of
Arizona, locating at Tucson, ne
is pjacticing law and doing a broker
age business. That he is popular in
tae te.iiiory is shown by the fact that
two y- ars ago he came within a few
votss of the Democratic nomination
for delegate to congress, and that he
was recently made the Democratic
V-ttional Committeeman for Arizona.
His friends in Arizona, and they
are numerous, intjeec), say t|iat is l
Bryan is elected he will be gotemot |
of the territory, and that w|)en state- j
hood is given Arizona he will be one !
of the United States Senators
“If the people out there slum id give
him half the territory, his tri’-ndp in
Missouri would say that it w.is not -•
bit more than be deserves,**
A million and a half dollars is
pretty good price for a glass of b -er,
says Pregcptt Courier. Never
theless that |g about the price that
Pregcott paid for a glass of beer that
a lodger in the Scopel block drank.
Mr. Scopel yesterday pointed qui to
the Pouner Reporter the mao -ho
drank this costly beer, and n , by no
iWeam?, has the appeara >c -of , t man
who would insist on i> gh priced ar
ticles—as a millioq dollar -b ik. Mr.
Scopel says the lodger went to hil
room,lit a caudle, put it into a miner’s
candlestick, stuck it ipto the wall and
wm t down for a gjass of beer. And
while he was gone the candlestick fell
r he lighted caudle ignited the
wall paper and the eo> flagraiion fol -
lowed which is now a matter of w c ll

Tl)e stockholder of the California
Consolidated Petroleum Company is a
stockholder of fifty oil companies.
His stock entitles him to bis pro rata
of all the dividends the California
Consolidated receives on the 2,500.0Q0
shares held by that 'ompany in the
fifty companies in question. His
stock also entitles him to his pro rata
of all the oil received as royalties on
5,000 acres, and to his pro rata of all
the oil developed on 10,0QQapres.
Jn this Company he has three sour
ces of profit and fifty chances to one

The Native American has tips to
say in regard to the bcuding question.
“The proposition to vote $500,000 in.
aid of the Tonto Basin reservoir prop
psition Js teceiving considerable atten
tion on the part of the people of
Maricopa County. The pyespmption
is that a bond issue of this charactet
will has*en the construction of the
peservoir. Certainly the people can
not afford to leave a stone unturned
in order to secure an abundant water
supply, it looks very much as tha*
they will have to depend on them
selves and private capital to sesuro the
desired And and the Tonto Basin pro
ject is the cheapegt and most prac
li »a,Me of any mentioned. It would
pay Maricopa county to make an out
right donation of $500,000 if by doing
so every acre under the existing canals
would .be lujrnishtd with plenty of
water.”
A very pleasing surprise party was
given our talented friend, Miss Oitiiie
Maeser Ifi id *y week as sin was pre
paring to ma£e a trip to hej* home in
Utah, Miss Maeser has done a grand
work .11 Mesa in the musical line and
her friends outdid themselves on the
occasion to show their appreciation of
her efforts. She took train Saturday
wejsk San Francisco where she will
spend a few seeks mth friends and
then go on to Salt Lake City We
have ir from good authority that she
will rmurn again—when the heated
spell is over, and then something will
happen.
Mr. E. Jones had a vepy narrow
escape from death Friday. He was
riding up Main Street on a gallop and
when in front of Dins fev.il.sUie too
horse stumbled and fell leaving his
foot in the stirrup. The horse be
came frightened and ran, dragging
3f r - *l on ®s jfqj* a|}out IQO yarcjgi fiy the
foot. The horse became very much
frightened at its moveable load and
tried to kick loose from him, which he
finally did, M''. Jones extricating his
foqi frofp the stirrup. Strange as it
may .appear the horse did not hit him
once, qnd he sustained no injuries save
his back being bruised from dragging
and a big scare.
While m Long we called on
our fellow-citizen Phil Mats, who is
sutpmering there. He is having a
good time and is a general favorite
with the fair sex. It is whispered
that one of them is about persuaded
to rp;ik<- Ariz *na her home. No in

when this will occur, but if it don’t

Last Saturday night the Mesa Bpqss
Band gave another concert. These
concerts are getting to be quite a fea
ture in Mesa. Saturday night the
streets filled with vehicles, and
the sidewalks were lined with people
who came out to enjoy the fine program
of music dispensed |iy the band boys.
The city fsthepn, it is understood, will
be requested to build a band stand.
The efforts of the band should be ap •

solid gold arrives in ton lots it is safe

from San Francisco announced that
the steamer Gustin was on the way
