Flagstaff. — The peace officers of this county have arrested Cora Chiquita, known as “Cora the Cowgirl,” who made a sensation here on Friday night by riding up and down the main street, a revolver in each hand, yelling and shooting at everyone whose appearance did not suit her fancy.
Not until the girl, who is known far and wide as “the beautiful devil,” had loped out of town did the sheriff and his posse show their heads. They later found her unconscious in an abandoned Indian hogan.
La Chiquita is one of the best shots in the Arizona territory, and is said to be in close touch with a bad gang of outlaws in the Southwest. She is 23 years old, pretty as a picture, about a quarter-blood Cherokee, wears man’s attire, always carries two revolvers and is a fearless rider. Not long ago she was driven out of New Mexico for general reckless shooting. She has killed several men. She is being held in the Flagstaff jail, under triple guard, awaiting trial. THE MULE TAMER
