Man Resists Arrest; Shot By Officer . O (From Monday's Examiner) Last night about 10:30 a Mexican was shot and killed by. Officer Harry McPhaul... c It seems that a fight' started in a lower Main street saloon arid. Officer McPhaul arrested both participants in the fight. Not being able to handle both of them he deputized an American stand ing nearby to help him take the pris oners to jail. The young man consented and he took one man and Officer McPhaul. the other and started to the county jail. When they turned up First street, however, the Mexican- who was in charge of Mr. McPhaul's deputy turn ed on the deputy and knocked him down. He then started to take the other prisoner away from Mr. Mc Phaul. In doing so he drew a knife and slashed at the officer, cutting his coat and shirt and slightly puncturing the skin. The deputy in the meantime had re gained his feet and yelled to Mr. Mc Phaul, who was fighting in the dark, that' the Mexican had a knife, a, fact the officer had just discovered. As the Mexican drew the knift back for another blow, the officer drew his revolver and fired. This shot took, effect in the elbow of the upraised arm, and came out at the wrist, mute evidence of the at tempt on the officers' life: The man came at the officer again and again the officer fired ..this time the bullet taking effect in the stomach and dropping his man, the man dying a few moments later. The coroner's jury this-morning ex onerated Officer McPhaul. It seems that this winter that Yuma has more tough characters coming this way than ever before in the his tory of the. town, and any officer -in arresting some of them, takes his life in his hands. Note-It- has later developed that thP man killed was not a Mexican, but a Mexican Indian from down around j Guaymas. NEW .

SCIENCE SjPJl AND IMTffl fill Negro Steals Blankets Rolls Himself Up And Goes to. Sleep " i.From Yuma Fximroer -Once more has Councilman George Downey-proved o that he Is 'the: only original thief catcher in Yuma, i ' It will be remembered that George and his trusty shot gun recently ap prehended a chicken thief. This time it was a bold burglar that George turned oveto the officers. It seems that Saturday night a negro entered the Wilson House and stole -i conductor's uniform and overcoat from one of the rooms. He also appropriat ed a-pair of fine blankets and a fine comfort. Word was sent out to the officers and they scattered out to catch him, some going to the railroad yards, some out around the ice plant, and others looking for hobo camps. But George has the real nose for criminals. He went to the passenger depot. There was Mr. Negro curled up in fthe waiting room rolled up im George's blanket and comfort and with the con ductor's suit in a bundle alongside of him. Whether he was waiting for a train or waiting to be arrested is not known but George marched him up and turn ed him over to Marshal Levy.

P., had the mis fortune last night to fall off his en- gine, sustaining a broken back. Just how the accident occurred is not known but the accident occurred just before the train pulled into Yuma from Tucson, and it is thought that Mr. McHale had leaned far out of his cab window to get a better view of the track ahead and-lost his balance with the above result. The fireman promptly stopped the train and the injured man was brough to Yuma. 1 His wife and little boy were here on a visit with him and Mrs. McHale took the injured rman in charge and took him t0 the s P hospital in Los I ....... Angeles on a later train last night. FINE PRE-N0RMAN CHURCH Remarkably Well Preserved Edifice at Worth Was Built Long Before the Conquest. Many churches in Britain owe their origin to the piety of the Norman in vader, but these which aniedate this great period of cnurcb building are not so numerous. One siTch pre-Norman edifice is the fine old parish church of Worth, near Three Rridges A little book, written by Rev Arthur Bridge, the rector of Worth tells the bis tory of what is aptly described as one of tne most remarkable relics of a bygone age It seems probable that the church passed with the Manoi ot Worth under the will of Alfred the Great -to his third son. -Ethelward Archaeologists will -be lavish ot thanks to Mr Bridge for the interesting and useful iittle record of his unique church. He tells us that Worth ex Dibits the earliest example of the pure ly English cruciform building, and its semi-circular eastern end is of very an piont riat Rut the whole church, as might be gathered, possess many tea tures which make It of peculiar fascin ation to the student of the antique The windows, for instance, have not suffered "restoration." and are well known to all students of architecture nere and on the continent Dundee Advocate.

HOUSEKEEPING TIPS. Keep all the old whiskbrooma for sink brushes. Kerosene rubbed on with a cloth will zinc nicely. Also applied to bath tubs of porcelain will cleanse from all grease. Rinse in not water Washing lamp chimneys by im mersing them in hot water makes them brittle. Steam the chimneys over a teakettle spout and rub dry with an old linen cloth. Knen a bowl of cold water at hand in which to dip the hands when pick ing over or hulling fruit for canning Old pieces of flannelette make nne floor cloths and may be used for broom bags and mops. To remove potato, onion and other vegetable stains fro.m the hands, rub with a slice of tomato. Skim the fat off from the chicken broth and save it for shortening. It is fine for biscuits. times it is almost impossible to drive a nail in hard wood, but if it is first rubbed witn soap u win suae in much easier. When- mending holes in lace cur tains a darn shows so painly. but a piece of lace as near like the curtain as possible put under the hole and ironed down after dampening with raw starch water will stay and be un noticed. Trim the edges around the hole after ironing. All wood ashes should be saved and put on the lawn in the fall to sweeten the soil. They are an addition to the garden. Dampen them before spread ing, to keep' the wind from blowing them away. All tubers should be put in early enough to get a start before the hard freezes come or there will be poor blossoms on the tuilps next spring Watch the canned fruit, by .looking the .cans over occasionally. Any that is spoiling may be reclaimed by re a eating. An Indirect Economy. "I suppose you find living less ex pensive since you tqpk to gathering your own mushrooms." "A little," replied Mr. Growcher. We don't save anything on the mush rooms, but all our friends have qIt iccepting invitations to dinner" There are at present eighteen recog nized systems of wireless telegraphy. An electric meter has been invented for measuring the flow of steam in pipes. A new electrical office device will seal, stamp and keep a record of 150 letters per minute. A machine has been invented to paste paper labels on bottles. It is driven by an electric motor. An attachment has been invented to make an alarm clock turn on and light a gas jet at a predetermined time. Up to date the motor vehicles that have been registered by the London county council number more than 57,000. The Paris department stores use storage battery driven eleqtric tri cycles to deliver purchases' to cus tomers. t To a Massachusetts man has been granted a patent for an electric lamp and reflector for inspecting the Inside ,of shoes. In the kitchens of the United States Military academy at West Point, N. Y., practically all the work is done by electricity. Cinematograph theaters are very popular all over Great Britain. The United States supplies 60 to 75 per cent, of the films used. A new insulator for use in elec trical work is made by condensing phenol and formaldehyde. It Is said to resmble Japirese lacquer.

The structure in Washington City known as the "Old Capitol Building" has a memorable his tory. It was erepted in. 1800, and was originally designed as a tavern, or boarding house. On account of poor management the tavern was closed after a few years. During the War of 1812 the British captured Wash ington and burned several of the public buildings, including the Capitol. The government then purchased this taverr building for the use of congress, and here both houses met for sev eral years. Within Its walls two presidents were Inaugu rated, and in It John C. Cal-. houn died. After the new Capi tol building was completed the "Old Capitol" was abandoned by congress, and after that It was used for various purposes, hotel, boarding school, etc. In 1861 the government again took charge of it, and used It during the Civil war as"a 'prison for captured southern soldiers.
