TWO MEXICAN CHILDREN

(Special Correspondence The Times.)
Doming, Sept. 4.—-Last Thursday
two llttV,- Mexican girls, aged 5 and
7 years, wandered away from their
home In this city .some time during
the forenoon. A searching par.y at
onco started out, and late In the even-
ing found the youngest child about
four miles south of town. Hut all ef-
forts to locate tho elder were fruitless.
The search was resumed Friday and
continued through Friday and Satur-
day without success, and the matter
was placed in the hands of Sheriff D.
B. Stephens, who struck her trail
early Sunday morning and followed It
during all day Sunday at. times on
horsehgck. at other times erawling on
hands and knees through mesquite
ami cacti. The sheriff kept tip the
search until dark, the trail at that
time showing that he was close to the
Ion child. During the night, he tried
to locate her by walking around but
failed. Monday morning h® again
struck the trail, and In a few hours
found the little girl, not dr-ail as all
supposed, but strange to say, In no se-
rious condition. She was nearly
twenty miles from home, and during
her four days wandering bad sub-
sisted upon mosquito beans and the
fruit, of the prickly pear. Her face,
lips and ton gw- were full of the small
needles from the cacti apples and re-
quired-the services of a doctor to ex-
tract th' m. When we think of a child
of seven years, four days and nlghu
alone on the desert without food or
water safe and well, it certainly Is a
femarkable ease of human endurance.

Laboring under the Insane hallucin-
ation that her neighbors were talking
about her through , the agency of
’’thought waves,” as she characteriz-
ed them to the police. Mrs, Ell 8.
Boatright, wife of a carpenter living
at 811 East Overland street, yesterday
afternoon made an attack upon the
young daughter of Engineer Johnson
of the G. H. with a revolver, declaring
her intention of killing tier for the
many mistreatments of which sho
imagined she had been the recipient.
Officer Spivey, who lives next door
to the Insane woman, arrested her and
took her to the police station, where
sin- raved upon the subject of "thought
waves" and Incoherently' declared that,
she had been the vjetini of vile abuse
by Engineer Johnson, hfs daughter,
Mawje, and others of her neighbors
and declared that she would not be
slandered by I hem any longer in their
way of throwing "mind waves” into
the house every time sho Had callers
and telling them stories abiiut her.
Yesterday afternoon’s attack was
the second that. Mrs. Boatright has
made upon Miss Johnson, the first be-
ing about a week ago when she threat-
ened the young girl with a butcher
knife and chased her into the house
with the knife in her hand. •
At that time County Judge Sweeney
was made acquainted with the worn
an’s condition and he held a confer-
ence with her, but she was allowed to
go hack home and, yesterday made
the second attack upon Miss Johnson,
who seems to be a particular object of
her detestation to her In her derang-
ed condition. Many others, however,
are brought into the'woman’s talk as
having injured licr.

SCHOOL BOARD AGAIN DEFERS
ACTION IN TAYLOR CASE.
Discovered That They Were Not Pro-
ceeding According to Law and Ask-
ed That Written Charges Be Filed.
The school hoard met again last
evening to resume the Investigation
of Professor Taylor, pi ineipiti^of the
Douglas colored school. The al ten-
don of the board was called by one of
the members shortly after the meet-
ing was called to order that the pro-
epedlngs wore not being conducted
In accordance with a rule adopted by
the board over if year ago which Is
that no teacher shall be put upon In-
vestigation before the board except
upon written charges.
As the charges against Professor
Taylor were not in writing and were
not verified, the hoard decided that.
It. woiild hot proceed further until
written charges, duly sworn to, were
made to that body.
Those of the colored people present
who were supposed to know some-
thing about the matters complained
of were called before the board and told
that. If they desired the Investigation
to proceed they would have to file
written charges and swear to the
same. They will be given until to-
night, to file the charges and If no
one by the time the board meets to-
night has not done so it Is likely that
the hoard will refute to consider the
matter farther. If written charges
are filed Professor Taylor will he un-
der suspension during his hearing. .
