of the law heretofore friendly to pro 1 and two of these cases the Jury re
hlbltlon now realize that it cannot bo I turned a verdict of not guilty
During this tlmo there were only

GIVEN HAPPY WELCOME
TO THEIR HOME TOWN
When It became known Thursday
evening that Alex Bellman and his
bride had arrived home on the after
noon train from El Paso where they
were married the first of the week a
number of Mr Bellmans young lady
and young men friends proceeded to
giv
ing them a happy but noisy welcome
to their home town
The young people congregated at
Tho Mission and after telephoning
to several places whero they thought
the young couple might be finally lo
cated them at Hotel Olive and preced
ed to immediately ca 1 on them Ar
riving at the hotel the young couple
wero found securely locked in the
bath room whero they believed them
selves safely hidden from their
friends but locks were of no avail
against the efforts of the young folks
From the hotel they wero taken
to tho Mission where treats wore
ordered at tho expnse of the bride
groom and where speeches by the
bride and groom wero demanded The
young couple were then assisted onto
one of tho large express trucks that
had been Becured from the depot and
to tho accompaniment of tho melo
dious music from cowbells squakere
and toy horns were hlllarlously drawn
through the streets finally ending the
Joy ride at tho court house whero
tho groom was locked In the sheriffs
office After making sure the groom
was locked up for the night the bride
was taken to tho home of her brother-in-law
Later feollng sorry for the
groom tho crowd decided to let him
out but when thoy went to tho court
houso were unable to unlock the door
of the room where they had left him
nnd when repeated callings failed to
brlug any answer they became un
easy for fear something serious had
happened to thoir friend and made an
investigation which revealed that he
had escaped through the ransom
Such was the happy welcome given
to tho bride aud groom
attention of the president of the
chamber of commerce R A Arm

the railroad company and tho situa
tion has been temporarily relieved
Tho case however has been laid be

Early Sunday morning the valley
was visllted by one of the heaviest
snow storms that has fallen in several
years All Saturday night a strong
wind blew aud about eight oclocfe
Sunday morning snow began falling
and continued for several hours
which covered thv ground to a depth
of two Inches
The storm was general throughout
the county and will be of untold value
to the farmers and stockmen who
feared a shortage of water this sum
mer At Mt Turnbull a depth of six
or eight Inches was reported and
In the Aravalpa and Klondyke coun
try several Inches were also reported
Both the Graham and Gila moun
tains were heavily covered In tho
Grahams the snow Is said to be at
least 25 feet deep on the level which
insures an ample supply of running
water with which to meet the needs
of the homes that have the city wat
er Installed on their premises
Besides assuring an ample supply
of water for all purposes the snow
afforded everyone a great deal of
pleasure especially the children who
were soon out and busily engaged In
snowballing and the making of snow
men
Tho storm only lasted a few hours
and by late evening tho beautiful
blanket of snow had almost entirely
disappeared
