Several mado short talks

heartily enjoyed by those present.
Tho aftornoon exercises began

Train Wrecking nml Assassination Anions
tho Crimes of F. I). Laudon.
Two years ago, when train robbery
was as yet a budding industry,
thero was a nmc days' sensation
over tho holdup of tho
and Texas express on tho Santa
Foroad, in northeastern Oklahoma.
Thero was much a swag by the operation,
both from tho express box
and from the passengers. Several
men woro interested in this littlo
financial operation. Only ono of
them was over caught. His name
is Frank D. Landon.
Many months after this and be
foro tho officcis of the law had
located Mr. Landon, that
individual, with aid from some unknown
confederate, mot a lonely
traveler on tho Larks of tho
river, and lightened tho
pack of tho wayfarer to tho extent
of oneihundred of our daddio's dollars.
For this offenso Mr. Landon
scared' deemed it necessary to
conceal himself, with tho result
that, like Sampson, ho was taken
while napping, and was landed in
jail of Kay county, there to answer
for his gravo misdemeanors.
Tho train robbery was a trifle
difficult to fix upon him, so the
charge of robbory was pushed and
proven, and upon Landon descended
tho weight of a fifteen years' sen
tence in tho Oklahoma penitentiary.
But Landon proved to bo a man
of resources Ono day about 4
o clock, tho jailor was in tho corridor,
bringing to tho fivo prisonors
their afternoon meal. Landon
managed to fell tho man from behind,
and tho rest was easy. As
soon as night fell, tho fivo made
their cscapo.
Thoy separated. Landon on his
way a low miles from Nowkirk,
the county seat, ran across a re-
markabh' fine horse.tho property of
a iurtnor named Wintcrmoot. Near
by was a nice revolver. Both bo
ing appropriated by Landon as a
gift of the gods to ono in distress
when Farmer "Wintormoot appeared
on tho scene. There was a
short struggle, and when Landon
rode away to tho south ho left behind
him a corpse with a bullet
hole through the head.
All this happened about nine
months ago. Naturally, oven in
Oklahoma, thero was the deepest
horror aud indignation over the
criminal story and cvory effort was
put forth to find a trace of tho assassin,
who had dropped from sight
more effectually than had he em
barked for a foreign land.
Tho authorities were fortunate
enough to havo good portraits of
tho errant knight, and wero not
economical in their distribution.
Ono of them camo to tho roguo's
gallery of Sheriff Wight, of Gra
ham county, Arizona. A few
weeks ago Alex. Davis, deputy
sliernl at Morenci, happoned to bo
in Solomonvillo, tho county scat.
He thought ho recognized in tho
portrait a rcsomblanco to an indi
vidual who had lain around-Moren-
ci for several months. Doputy
Sheriff Parks investigated tho caso
with Davis, and was fortunato
enough to find the object of his
search at a timo when ho had pawned
tho same redoubtable rovolver
of Oklahoma days with a saloon
keeper. It was tho man.
Landon was quietly taken into
custody and tho sheriff of Ka'
county was notified by telegraph.
As ,i result, there yesterday ap
peared in Phenix a deputj' sheriff
of Kay county, S. "W. Masters. Ho
loft on last night's south bound
train, ompoworcd by tho governor,
over tho territorial board seal, to
removo from Arizona tho porson of
one h. D. Landon. At Lordsburg
Masters will bo joined by Davis
with his prisoner, and together
they will escort Landon to Oklahoma,
thero, in all probability to
stretch a neat hemp ropo at an early
Murdered by His Stepson,
Nows has just reached us of the
killing of T. Bowington, formerly
of Saffoid, by his stepson, at
It seems that the young man has
not been of sound mind for a number
of years past but was not con
sidered dangerous. Last week,
howovcr, ho suddonly becamo
violently insane, procured an ax
and struck Mr. Bowington in the
head with it, bursting tho head
open and scattering tho brains in a
frightful mannor.
The deceased was well known in
tho valloy, having como hero about
eleven years ago, and remained
between threo and four years, running
Prest. Layton's grist mill all
tho time. '
Deceased was about 70 years old
at tho timo he wasmurdered. '
I suppose in every town in the
West you will find people who will
not work, oven if thoy get a chance
but aro always looking for something
easy, or as it is termed "soft
snaps," and constantly complaining
of hard times,reading other people's
papers and happening around just
n time to come in at the proper
time to enjoy a free diink. Well,
wo nave a crowd Here ot just sucn
good-for-nothing, lazy fellows.
Such men should not be encouraged
or given "soft snaps" and they will

Tho story of the killing is a short
ono. Dcveuport and a party of
friends had been buying beer and
playing cards to see who would
pay for it. They wero in a room
near Mr. Loberg, who is very sick?
Thoj' got to making a great deal of
noise winch disturbed Mr. Loberg
and frightened his wifo, Sig remonstrated
with them, which angered

Wednesday, en route to tho scene
of tho tragedj.
Charlie Davenport was in the
city yesterday and tells tho following
story: For somo timo there
has been hard feelings between him
and Weisl and ho determined to
kill him, but Billy talked him out
of it.
When Sig saw tho gun ho reached
for his gun which was on a shelf.
Billy told him if ho touched tho
gun ho would kill him.
Sig picked up the gun and Billy
killcd him.
Charley thinks his brother per
fectly justified in what he did, but
even Ins story is hard for Billy.
Arthur Hand has taken Billy to
Silver City undor arrest.
Sig Weisl was a native of Bavaria.
His peoplo moved to this
country when ho was a child and
settled in tho city of New York,
whero his early life was passed,
and where his brother now lives.
On reaching man's estato Sig's adventurous
disposition urged him
to travel and ho started west. He
was a resident of Silver City when
that was a lively, bustling mining
camp and mado considerable money
thero. For a timo ho clerked in
the post trader's storo at Fort
Bayard. Some ten years ago he
went to Clifton and took charge of
tho Arizona copper company's
storo. Wliilo living in Clifton ho
was mado a citizen of tho United
States, his final papers wero issued
by tho district court at
Some foui or five years ago
he moved to Carlisle and purchased
tho stock of merchandise owned
by tho Carlislo mining company.
In connection with John A. Miller
ho endeavored to run tho Carlislo
mill, but the effort was not a success
and ho lost several thousand
dollars in tho deal. Sinco then he
has been running the storo at
and working steadily to bring
tho camp out. Ho was on tho evo
of success, and if he had been spared
a few months ho probably would
cleared up considerable money.
Sig Weisl was an honorable merchant,
an honest man and a good
citizen, being an ablo representative
of a class which cannot bo too
largely represented in any community.

Tho famous, lost, "Pcgleg" mine
has been found in tho vicinity of
Indio after being lost for over sixty
years. Tho finders at first did
not realize what they had come
upon till after working some weeks
when old works and the remains of
human beings wero found together
with very rich ore. Herald.
Tucson is not wanting m varictj'
these days. What with a scissors
grinder and ho colored gemmen
with guitar and banjo and the dog
wagon sho is able to breath with
case. One of tho county officials
looked dreamily after tho grinder
with his jingling bell and seemed
to seo his boyhood home rise before
him as he remarked that it
was many years since he had seen
such an outfit.
Mr. W. F. Hagan, of Clifton, is
in tho city seeing his numerous
friends. He is engaged in tho general
merchandizing business coupl
ed with mining. Mr. llagan has
resided in Clifton for tho past six
years, and speaks very highly of
that mining camp. Recently he
shipped 1,000 pounds of oro to
treatment and tho returns
were twenty-one ounces in silvor.

and it is no wonder that Mr. Hagan
speaks glowingly of Clifton. He
leaves to-morrow for his home,
where ho will remain several days
and then proceed to California to
spend the summer. Seven years
ago Mr. Hagan was a successful
business man hero, but thinking ho
saw green fields and pastures new
in Clifton moved to that placo
where he has been very successful.

A Colossal Mine.
The greatest mine in tho United
States today is tho great United
Areado property at Jerome, forty
miles northeast of Prcscott in the
Black Hills. It is owned by tho
Montana millionaire W. A. Clarke,
who has just finished a narrow
gauge railroad to conect tho mino
with the Murphy's now road. It is
a marvelous ore deposit. Thero is
in one section of tho property, an
outlined body of ore
feet in dimensions all of which
I am told runs about 50 per cont
in copper and carries about 830 in
gold to tho ton. If this bo true
and I think it is tho property
must rival in valuo if it does not
exceed tho great bononza silver
mines of Nevada. I understood it
producod 5,000 tons of copper last
year and 1,000,000 worth of gold.
Tho oro is all reduced at tho mine,
being first desulphurized by roasting
in heaps in tho open air and
then put through the furnaco.
About 800 men are employed in all.
Somo Donvcr parties havo got a
bond on properties adjoining and
aro vigorously prospecting with a
good show of getting the same
great oro body. If their hopes aro
realized it will make a noise in the
world and do for Arizona what
Cripple Creek has done for Colorado.
I think it will do as much as
tho Comstock properties did for
Nevada. Denver Aetcs.
The Ho iril Enjoined.
On Saturday last the Board of

he proceeded to prepare injunction
papers against payment. The in

on file alleges among othor things
that no service has been rendered

warranted by law. A further in
junction was granted by Judge
Hyatt restraining tho payment by

The Governor Orates.
Tho Coconino Sun referring to tho
celebration of the Fourth at Flagstaff
says Governor Hughes, orator
of tho dajr, was introduced to" tho
vast audience. His speech was
timely and eloquent. Ho paid tributes
to the matchless scenery of
Northern Arizona and pleaded for
enduring loyally to tho flag. His
peroration is worthy of repetition.
Said tho Governor:
"To all within tho sound of my
voice to-day, especially the young
men and maidens, I charge you to
love, cherish and honor this flag.
In it learn of them, who made tho
history this flag rcproscnts, and
thus drink from the true spring of
patriotism. And whilc'it streams
from the tens of thousands of turrets
throughout tho land, may it
also float over every school houso
as well, that it may become an emblematic
text in every school room
and the lessons it teaches may bo
planted in tho hearts and fixed in
tho minds of the millions yet to-
come, in whom it will find as many
defenders in times danger.
There is no emblem so fraught

To Iron a White Shirt.
It is absolutely necessary to havo
tho shirts just as clean as they can
bo made. Dry them beforo starching.
Then procure the starch mado
especially for such work, and dos-
olve a tablespoonful in ono pint of
water for each shirt. It will not -
need cooking. Tho quantity of
starch varies somewhat with tho
kind of shirts, and a littlo exper
ience will bo necessary to get ir
just right. More starch will be required
for an old shirt thama new
ono. Dip the wristbands and bosom
two or threo times, rubbing
them betwecnthe hands unlil you
aro suro that every thread is saturated ?.
with the starch. Wring them.
and roll tho shirt up tightly. It
will be ready to iron in half an.
Your ironing board or tablo
should bo covered with threo or
four thicknesses of old blanket and
a shoot that is perfectly clean. In
addition to this there should be -a
bosom board about a foot wide ancl
a littlo longer than a shirt bosom.
Cover with two thicknesses of old
linen or muslin. These must be
stretched so tightly that thero aro ;
no wrinkles, and fasten firmly on.
tho undor side of tho board. Any
pieces containing scames must bo
discarded. -
Iron tho sleeves and body of the
shirt first. Placo the bosom board
inside tho shirt under tho bosom.
which is drawn smoothly over it.
Press and rub with tho iron until
it is dry, then rub it softly with a
soft cloth wrung out of cold water,
and, with your smoothest iron; iron
it again, rubbing hard. This will
put tho polish on. Iron the wristbands
in the samo way, and bend, '
thorn in the shape you wish them "
to retain. Hang the shirt up out
of tho wind until thoroughly dry.
Then fold it with 'the bosom uppermost.
Collors and cuffs aro
starched and ironed in the samo
way. After turn-over collors aro
ironed almost dry, turn them in
tho proper shape and press lightly
to insure their remaining so after
thoy aro dry.
The irons must bo kept perfectly
clean and free from rust to insure- '
good results. Rubbing them while
warm with a piece of beeswax tied
in a cloth, or passing thom over a.
paper wet with coal oil, will do a.
great deal toward kenping them,
