Train Blown Up by Dynamite
i ,KWhile Passing a Section
ENGINEER DIES AT POST
Takes Hunting Train Out of City
nd Wns Blown up When Ulnst
Douglas, Ariz., Nov. 8. The
death list, as a result of the Neco-
zarl explosion yesterday, Is now
placed at 14 or 15, all Mexicans, be
sides John Chrisholm, aged 13, who
was riding on the train when the
explosion occurred. The train, on a
marrow-gunge railroad to the Pilares
mine, in some way caught fire. In
the train were two cars of explosives
and the fact that a concentrator was
saved is duo to the bravery of the
Mexican engineer of the train, Jesus
Garcia. Garcia, after calling to the
Test of his crew to jump, ran the
train away from town. He had
proceeded about half a mile when
tho explosion occurred, and he was
Mown to atoms. It is reported an
other member of the train crew
Btayed with him and was killed. The
heavy death list is due to tho fact
that the" explosion occurred "just as
tho train was passing a section gang.
EXHIBIT FINE BRICK
John E. Parrott, a well-known
resident of Coquille, has been in our
city for several days for the purpose
of Introducing material for building
purposes. Mr. Parrott was accom
panied by his brother-in-law, P. L.
Munson, formerly of Michigan. Mr.
Munson is an experienced concrete
man, and on his arrival at Coqulllo
last June immediately saw that there
was a great opening for work in his
line. Together with Mr. Perrot, they
started to make things hum and met
with success from the start. They
have manufactured something over
20,000 brick, composed of sand and
cement. The article is weatherproof
and is certainly well worthy of con
sideration. These gentleman are
also in a position to turn out hol
low concrete blocks for building pur
poses, and intend to enlarge their
plant in the Immediate future. Sam
ples of their brick are now on ex
hibition at the Chamber of Com
Messrs. Perrot and Munson are
now engaged in laying tho founda
tion for tho Merchants' and Farm
ers' Bank, on tho Nasburg corner In
Coquille. The building when com-,
pleted will be 25x50 feet and two
stories high. Work is progressing
rapidly and tho contractors hope to
have tho work completed within a
During their conversation with
tho Times reporter tho gentlemen
stated that they were greatly Im
pressed with tho spirit of progres
slveness of tho people of Coos Bay.
While talking Mr. Perrott said:
''What is good for tho goose Is good
for tho gander. Tho building of
Coos Bay is certainly good for tho
Coquille Valley, as wo depend on tho
Bay just as you folks depend on the
Coquille. Wo aro trying to work
hand In hand, and nro meeting with
success. What wo want is goodwill
to nil and success to each and every
part of Coos County."
Tho Fearless Mexican Peccary Will
Fight Man or Beast.
A writer In the St Louis Republic
says that tho most vicious and fearless
member of tho brute creation is the
peccary, or wild hog, of Mexico. This
nnlmal seems utterly devoid of fear
and displays an intelligence in fighting
man strangely nt variance with Its ap
parently complete lack of mental at
tributes. Their ability to scent man is particu-
larly marked. Tho only thing to do
when they get after you is to run
away from them as ,fnst ns a horse
can carry you, nnd then there is no
certainty that they won't catch you.
They are nearly ns swift as a horse,
and their enduranco Is ns great as
A friend of mino encountered a
drove of them in a. wild part of Mexico

almost miraculous. Ho very foolishly
shot and wounded n numher ot them.
Then ho took refuge in a tree.
Tho pcccnrles kept him in tho tree nil
that day and through tho night. They
slrcled round the tree, grunting and
squealing their delight at tho prospect
of a feast. He soon exhausted his am
munition and brought down a peccary
at each fire, but this had no terrors for
Toward morning they began to cat
those ho had killed, after which they
formed in lino nnd trotted off. If they
had not had some of their own number
to devour they would have guarded
that tree until my friend through sheer
exhaustion dropped from his porch nnd
allowed them to make a meal of him.
The wildcats and tigers that lufest
the Mexican wilds flee from tho pec

rattlesnakes keep out of their path.
A LESSON IN LAW."
Several Things the Philadelphia Drum
mer Didn't Know.
Where Her Great Help Was Needed
Her Heart Was Willing.
"Professor," said the fair co-ed after
n pause, "let me ask you If you ever
use tho phrase 'different thnn?' "
"Never!" exclaimed tho young pro
fessor of rhetoric nnd English litera
ture. "It exasperates me, Miss Pinkie,
whenever I see It In print."
"I am glad we have something In
common," she rejoined. "Neverthe
less, Frofessor de Purey, I cannot bo
"Mr. Koopong," asked the young wo
man, with downcast eyes, "now that I
happen to think of It, do you ever uso
the phrase 'different than?'"
"I certainly do not," said tho enam
ored capitalist. "It is not only Incor
rect, but utterly absurd."
"I am glad to hear you say so. Still,
Mr. Koopong, It is useless to urge mo.
I never can bo anything more to you
than a friend."

pretty well," said tho Philadelphia
drummer, "but I had n little experi

one barber, and he didn't look as If he

pretty good shnvcr, however, nnd as
I bad had n drink just before entering
the shop I fell asleep in tho chair.
I slept for half an hour, and -when I
awoke he was through with me. Tho
first thing I missed on getting out of
the chnlr was my roll of money, next
my watch, next my overcoat, next and
lastly my scarfpln. I went for that
barber for all I was worth, but he
denied robbing me, nnd his face wore
a smile. Then I got a gait on mo and
went to a lawyer's office.
"'Can you prove by a credlblo wit

you entered tho barber shop?' he asked.
" 'Can you prove thnt your watch

said, and I went to a second lawyer to

A PRIVATE DENTIST.
"Let mo nsk you one question, Mr.
Tnoodles," she said. "Do you evor use
tho phrase 'different than?"
"Why cr I presume I have used it
carelessly sometimes, Miss P-Piukle,"
stammered tho embarrassed youth.
"But now that you have called my at
tention to it I shall bo careful to say
'different from' hereafter."

ENTRAPPED BY WOMAN'S
Philadelphia Traveling Man Slays
Friend of Family by Shooting
Tho shooting affair, in which
Harry Forreo, of this city, was
Icilled last Tuesday night by Andrew
J, Dotsch, in tho lattor's homo,
whero Forreo boarded, was inquired
into todny by a coroner's inquest,
and Descli was committed to jail.
Forreo wns found lying In tho hall
outsldo tho bedroom occupied by
Dotsch and his wife Detsch claimed
that ho mistook Forreo for a burglar
nnd shot through tho door, but
among Forreo's effects woro found
mnny endearing letters from
Dotsch's wife. When confronted
with these, Mrs. Dotsch confessed
lior relations with Forreo, nud said
her husbarid had learned of thorn.
Dotsch, howover, maintains ho mis
took Ferroo for a burglar, and did
not know of his wife's rolntlons
with Forreo. Tho polico nro work
ing on tho theory that Dotsch, who
Is a traveling salesman, learned of
Ills wife's conduct, and compelled
lior to luro Forreo to her room, and

A somewhat eccentric physician who
recently died would order patients to
take walks, say dally, on tho left side
Of tho street, returning by tho other
side; another ho would order to nrlso
each morning at a certain hour and
cat cheese with ginger beer; another to
take supper precisely at midnight and
eat only apples, or ho would Instruct
tho patient to put just so many grains
of salt on tho egg ho was to eat and
part his hair in a different way each
day. His object was to got tho mind
of tho patient on something elso thnn
symptoms, nnd this scheme worked
well In many cases, especially when
the patient was suffering from melan
cholia. Now York Times.

One Luxury This Man Will Have When
He Gets Rich.
"If ever I get really rich," said the
man with a toothache, "I shall have a
private dentist. What do I want of a
private dentist? Well, I'll tell you.
"It's bad enough nuyway to suffer
from your teeth, but to me this suffer
ing is made doubly distressing' by tho
circumstances attendant upon my visit
to tho dentist's office.
"I arrive there to find the dentist
working away upon tho teeth of some
patient in his chair, and that always
sort of disturbs ino to find somebody
elso being worked over and cared for
while I wait In distress. I think I am
entitled to all tho care nnd sympathy.
And maybe I find somebody, elso wait
ing, perhaps a friend of the person In
tho chair, or somebody waiting his
turn, como ahead of time, and that
disturbs me, for I like to wait with my
pain In solitude.
"But tho dentfst gets through with
tho patient in the chair on time for me,
nnd I take my place under his hands.
And I don't doubt thnt I got his con
centrated and complete attention and
skill while ho Is operating upon me,
but I can't get away from tho Idea that
ho Is working as rapidly as he can so
as to be ready for the next patient.
"And then, with all my pain, I can't
forget either that person In the waiting
room waiting his turn after me, and
wnltlng without n particle of sympa
thy for me, and, in fnct, rather Impa
tient of my presence and thinking of
himself alone. This Is rather wounding
to my self esteem.
"In fact, however I regard It, a visit
to the dentist's ofUce Is always a Jar
ring experience. My dentist is a man
of the highest professional skill, and,
ns I said, I am suro I get his best care,
but still all theso familiar things that
I have mentioned to you Jar me, and
I would nvold them all If I could. So
when I get real rich I shall certainly
have a private dentist" Washington

Tho vanity of Samuel Warren, tho
author of "Ten Thousand a Year," In
his early years of authorship at least,
was remarkable, and there is a story
told of him to tho effect that on one
occaslou at a friend's houso he had to
take down to dinner n lady whom
he had not met before, nud as soon as
they were seated nf table asked her If
sho had ever heard of Samuel Warren.
"Oh, certainly," was tho reply. "My
