THE BLASE MAN.
This wowld is but a bubble, doncherknow;
It’s full of twials and twouible, doncherknow;
You come to earth to cwy,
You gwow old ah and you sigh—
Oklah still and then —you die. doncherknow.
And it’s all a howwid mix, doncherknow —
Business, love and politics, doncherknow;
Fashions, follies, cliques and sets,
Clubs and pawties, sighs, wegwets.
Struggle, stwife —and cigawetts, doncherknow.
Business! Ah, that’s trade, doncherknow;
Something lost or something made, doncherknow;
You stwnggle and you mope.
And you hang your highest hope
On perhaps the pwiee o. —soap, doncherknow.
Fashion! Ah. that’s dwess, doncherknow;
The cause of much dist.woss, doncherknow;
To determine what we weak.
When to go, and likewise wheah.
And how to pawit your mih, doncherknow.
Politics! Just a lawk, doncherknow;
Just a nightmare in the dawk, doncherknow;
You perspire day and niglut,
And aftah all, it he ifo hit
Why —perhaps the wong man’s wight, doncherknow.
Love! Ah yes! You meet a girl, doncherknow;
And you get in such a \ hirl, doncherknow;
You get down upon the floah
To adoah and to imploah,
And it’s all a howwid boah, doncherknow.
, For there’s weally noth‘.nig in it, doncherknow;
For you live for just a minute, doncherknow;
When you’ve eaten read and felt,
Heard and seem, and said and smelt,
Why—all the ca*wds are dealt, doncherknow.
You’ve one consoiousne s, that’s all, doncherknow;
One stomach, and that’s small, doncherknow;
You can only weah one tie,
And one eyeglass in your eye,
And —one coffin when you die, doncherknow.

‘SCOHY” SAYS HE
IS MERELY A SHAM
Walter Scott, “the Death Valley
Jystery,” admitted Monday in Los
tngeles, while tears rolled down his
iron zed cheeks, that for seven yearc
ie had been the tool and scapegoat
►f mining promoters.
The ambuscade dm Wingate Pass,
he big roils of money, the sup posed
y fabulous expenditures for pleasure
he periodic and meteoric burst® ci
‘Scotty’’ on the Los Angeles hori
;on, all were pretenses, and how
)iititful they now seem to this omlj
mtative son of the desert was re
sealed in the humiliation which h
visibly suffered says the Examiner.
For three hours “Scotty” sat in
he district attorney’s office amd re
sited, in that rough and picturesque
anguage he uses, the seven years
strange history of the role assumed
jy himself as the instrument of pro
rioters whom he did not spare. Nei
ther did he spare himself.
The confession was made in t,h
presence of G. Ray Horton, deputy
iistrict attorney, and Samuel L
Browne, -head of the bureau of crim
lna>l investigation.
What “Scotty” told these officials
tie will according to his promise, ro
ate to the grand jury, which will ir
juire into his part in a recent trans
action between himeslf and the of
fleers of the Death Valley Scotty
Jold Mining and Development com
pany whereby he was represented a:
receiving from them $25,000 for hi'
mines in the Panamint range. He
vas committed to the county jail
’or contempt of court in not havin'
satisfied a SIOOO doctor bill, the
iudge taking the ground that “Scotty’
laving received $25,000 on June 1
should have at least SIOOO two| weeks
ater, especially since he was not
ible to account for the expenditure
if more than a few hundred dollars
in the meantime. . But Scot.ty said
tie was “broke.”
This was true, dismally true, ’’Scot
ty” declared yesterday. Instead oi
receiving $25,000 from the mining
•ompany, as the receipt, issued by
him so states, “Scotty” declares that
he got a small sum.
“Scotty's" confession contained
this other bit of interesting history:
He never located a mine, either
,n the Panamint range, the Funeral
mountains or anywhere else; he
lever owned a mine, was not a min
?r; his only role was to make the
hig splurge, to advreitise himself a;
he spectacular and unbridled spend
-11 rift while all the time cunning
c heniers were formulating plans up
m which they should profit by thiir
show.
And all “Scotty” got, lie says, wa
in amount of money that could not
ie dignified by a loftier title than
i “handout." Scotty said the most
le ever had at one time was S2OOO
tnd that the yellow complexioned roll
le carried was upholstered with $1
Jills.
Assistant District Attorney Horton
will direct the inquiry Into the mat
er of “high grading.” There have
>een theories advanced that “Scotty”
came by his plethoric money equip
ment through the Operations of men
who .held out high-grade ore from
the Goldfield mines in the days
when the best of lit ran from SSOOO
to $25,000 a ton.
TABOOING TRIBAL MARRIAGES.
Among the June weddings that
created interest at the office of the
Clerk of the Superior Court, where
Cupid reigns, was that of Kate Craz
ier, a Wallapai Indian of more than
ordinary intelligence, and Fannie
Beecher. Kate and Fannie had long
been married according to the cus
tom of the Wallapais, but Kate be
gan to amass some property, and be
lieving that the disintegration of
the tribal relations of the Wallapai
tribe was near at hand, and that the
children might be ‘done out of the
property in the event of his death,
he concluded to legitimatize these
children so that they might inherit
the property without question.
The marriage custom of the Walla
pais is rather simple, and the bride
usually has no say in the matter. The
groom to be approaches the parents
of the young lady he would fain
make his bride and after considerable
haggling a price woukl be agreed
upon and the daughter would be sent
over to the tepee of her purchaser.
While some of the young squaws
would rebel against the sale they us
ually had to conform to the cus
tom. The squaws are sold when
very young, the ruling age being less
than twelve years. The price ranges
from S3OO for princesses of the
blood to a few dollars, or a horse or
blanket for less favored girls. In only
a few instances do the Indians go
outside of their own tribe for a
bride, as ithis custom has been frown
ed upon by matchmaking mothers
and especially as the intercourse of
:he tribe is very limited, and the
opportunity is not given the younger
members to get acquainted with the
desirable young women of another
nation of Indians, although itbey may
reside within a hundred miles or
less from each other.
To illustrate the providence o
some of the Indians, Kate Crazier of
sered in payment of his marriage li
cense a SSO government check, and
when the official was unable to
handle such a large sum the blush
ing bride was called upon and
brought up from the depth of one leg
ging the needed amount. —Mohave
County Miner.

LAYING STEEL.
DOUGLAS, Ariz,, June 20. —Laying
of the trackage upon the Fairbanks-
Tucson extension of the El Paso &
Southwestern railroad commenced tbit
morning. Laying of steel is not e
pected to be delayed. But one grad
ing outfit is now at work on the en
tire line, this being the Reynolds-
SumptLon camp near Irene station.
There was considerable heavy rock
work here which delayed the contrac
tors to a great extent.. The contract
will be completed by July 10, how
ever, ;it is the anticipation of the
contractors that their crew will be out
of the way long befoie the steel gang
can reach them.
Gentle Criticism.
On one occasion Hans Richter was
present at a concert given by a broth
er composer, at which the latter per
formed a long and not particularly in
teresting work of his own. When the
composition came to an end Richter
expressed his criticism in a very few
words. “Well,” he said, “I too has
written compositions to make a pile
so high,” raising his hand three feet
from the ground; “but I has burned
them!”
Explaining a Resentment.
“I am an American citizen,” said
the man who got into trouble abroad.
“Well,” replied the Oriental official,
“in that case you can consult some
of your own statesmen and understand
our resentment of pernicious activity
in politics.”
The Great Bugaboo.
Truth never hurt any man, but thou
sands and thousands of them are
skeert silly at the sight of it coming
their way. To every mother’s son and
father’s daughter of that kind Truth
is the Great Bugaboo.
THE EARTH.
Land men of the southwest can
not find a better advertising med
ium than The Earth, which Is pub
lished monthly in Chicago. It cir
culates among a class of people who
are looking for homes and invest
ment opportunities in (this section of
the west. Its immense circulation as
sures sure returns. The offices of
The Earth are located in Room 1118
Railway Exchange building, Chicago.
