The shortage of the wheat crop
abroad has sent cut American wheat

Newspapers are absolutely necessary

the public into the uses of his goods
No other method of advertising can do
this as thoroughly and as effectively
There arj a larga number of very
filthy water closets in Nogales that
the city council should order fumi
gated. A little chloride of lime iudi
ciously used would help the sanitary
condition of the town.
Those Republican fellows have a

of the crop iu the United States, but
their gall and gold elected McKiuley

If it is true that the fall in silver is
due to iniquitous legislation. Hint.
truth is the strongest reason why the
metal is not a good basis for currency.
Anything that is of such unstable
value that legislation can affect,
whether it be silver or coon skins, is
unsafe as currency. The Stockton,
Well, now, since you seen to think

hard saddles by women is asserted to be
direct cause of difficulty in childbirth,
by a surgeon writing to the Lancet.

this point, This fact has long been

an eminent one, Dr. Lane, has gone
furcher and predicts a noticeable de
crease of the race in consequence of
the abuse o: the bicycle, by women.
It is however not the rational use of
the bicycle that hurts, but its abuse.

A Wellknown Nogales Man Sent to the
Asylum from Tucson.
Alexander Seratnin, more familiarly
known us Alex, was arrestod in Tuc
son last Friday night by Constable
Manciet,upon a charge of insanity. It
appears that Alex while working for
the N. M. & A. railroad company as
lineman, some eight months ago re
ceives! a severe fracture of the skull by
being struck by a falling cross bar of a
telegraph pole. The injury not caus
ing ai.y flesh wound nothing
thought of it, but at intervals cf every
few t.-eeks thereafter he would have
attacks of severe pain followed by in
termitter.t insanity which disqualified
him from work. LoaiHg his position
with tho railroad he became worried
about the wellfare of his family, who
reside at Nogales, maLing his trouble
more frequent, until when arrested in
Tucson he was in a pitiable state, He
was laboring under the impression that
he was to be executed without trial,
t'jat the scaffold was being built by
some boys near tlie electric light plant,
that they would have him that night,
etc. He wrote several letters to his
wife and children, telling them that
his time had come.

S. Wood, probate judge and Dr. W. B
Purcell, county physician, and ordered

insane asylum at Phoenix.
THE WEBB MINE SOLD.

chase the Favorita.
Hen. Sam F. Webb has sold his Fa
vorita mine in Smora to H. W. Ran
dall und O. K. Franklin, the miiiin
men, for a handsome figure. Messrs.
Randall and Franklin will at once put
a lorce of men ut work developing the
The mine is a silver proposition but
is very rich and can bo worked at a
profit even at the present low price of
the white metal.
Already several hundred feet of
t.-.unels and shafts are on the mine as
Mr. Webb has had a force of men
working there for more than two years.
The mine was first opened by Frank
Olsen, otio of the present owners of the
Pride of the West jine at Washing
ton Camp and was purchased by
Messrs. Sam Webb and Hemry W.
Brady. It lies forty-five miles south
east of Nogales in a rich mineral belt
near the rich Mexicana mine, now be
ing successfully worked by the Harms
people of Kentucky.
Messrs. Rand ill and Franklin have
some other promising claims in view
in Sonora which they will likely pur
chase very soon.

Mr. and Mrs. Richard Ronstadt
have returned from their bridal trip
and are at home at their newly built
residence on Convent street.
Considerable interest is being mani
fested iu Tucson over the establish
ment of the Columbia smelter at Rolliu
and pro-pectors are making many in-
paired us to what ores they will take,
costs of smelting, etc. There is every
reason to believe that if they make it a
universal smelter, that the ore now
g-.iug to Pueblo, 1 Paso and other
smelters will be sent to the Rollin.
Our district court loom will be a
pride to our court house when all the
repairs contemplated or completed.

All, or your share of it, if you find the
Schilling s Best tea is not only pure but it
is f because it is fresh-roasted.
What is the missing word ?
Get Schilling's Best tea at your grocer's; take out the Yellow Ticket
(there is one in every package); send it with your guess to address below
before August 31st.
. One word allowed for each yellow ticket.
If only one person finds the word, he gets one thousand dollars. If
several find it, the money will be divided equally among them.
Every, one sending a yellow ticket will get a set of cardboard creeping
babies at the end of the contest. Those sending three or more in one
envelope will receive a charming 1898 calendar, no advertisement on it.
Besides this thousand dollars, we will pay $150 each to the two persons
who send in the largest number of yellow tickets in one envelope between
June 15 and the end of the contest August 31st.
Cut this out. You won't see it again.

Something to Depend On.
Mr. James Jones, of the drug firm of
Jones & Son, Cowdem, 111., in speak
ing of Dr. Kind's Now Discovery, says
that last winter his wife was attacked
with La Grippe, and her case grew so
serious that physicians at Cowdem
and Pana could do nothing for her.
It seemed to develop into hasty con
sumption. Having Dr. Kings JNew
Discovery in store, and selling lots of
it, he took a bottle home, and to the
surprise of all she began to get better
from first dose, and half dozen dollar
bottles cured her sound and well. Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consnmp-
tion, Cough and Colds is guaranteed to
do this good work. Try it. Sold by
Chenoweth & Mix.
Another Charity Concert.
On Saturday, September 11th, one
... . p , ,
of the grand cnarity concerts lor wnicn
Nogales is justly famous will be given
at Marsh's opera house. The perform
anca will be for tho benefit of Am
brosio Vega, who while in the 'employ
of the Sonora railway company, had
the misfortune to lose both limW in '."a
railroad ac ident.
The local talent has voluntered o
assist and an interesting time is as
sured. The success that has attended
such efforts in the past leaves no room
for doubt in this direction. Bat re
gardless of the excellent programme (
that is Iieing prepared, a full house
will surely greet the performers. No
more worthy olject could be suggested
than t.at of charity; and when we con
sider that in this case it is a mest de
serving one, the good people of the
Line Cities can be depended upon to
