commonwealth g the pres of Arizona
displays to-day. Thoro is no sectional
htttornefl or envy when tho merits of
ono place turn the soalo of prosperity in
us urtor, ou: every journal speaks of
tho boom with words of encouragement,
ihe prosperity cf Yuma, Thenix, Flor
ence, Treecott or Tombstone, is a por
tion of the properity of Arizona, and its
benefits extend to nil parts of tho Ter
ritory. When we speak kindly of the
developments and progress of ono sec
tion we know thnt n reciprocal interest
will not neglect similar enterprises that
may be developed about thi
city. ThiB nnnnimity of the fen-
timent ol tho press is fall of promi'
for our Territory, nnd the greatest pos-
siblo benefits are bound to result from
its wide influence. Each section pos
sesses its peculiar resources sufficiently
great to build up large nnd populous
oities, and no jealousies need exist whero
all are 60 generously endowed. The
growth nnd prosperity of our land of
sunshine will owe n vas debt of grati
tude to the whose liberal spirit has sent
forth tho glad tiding of the great joy

to faithfully portray the advantage oui

commend this spirit of harmony, and

good tbe press will stand as a nnit.
Thu accomplishment of tho work of

where it is known to exist in abundance,
Tne long ami expensive canaU must be
exaavated upon correct mechanical
principles, nud there 13 much to be done
before the water reaches tbe lands de
signed to be cultivated. All these pre
limimry steps to bring to the dry soil the
fructifying waters are necessarily flow
and costly, bnt when the water is once
applied, and the civilizing plow has
turned the furrows, tha transition is
sudden and glorious. Green fields and
blooming flowers spring up like tokens
of heaven's blessings, and smihng nature
exerts her best efforts to express her
thankfulness that the change has come.

In spite of the protests against the
alleged injustice of tins interstate com
merce law, and the tflorts of largo mon
opolies and the rnilnteda to render it
obnoxious to the people in the hops of
its repeal, the practical result of its en
forcement will nltimately prove a great
and permanent blessing to all the in
land settlements and people. The fact
that the trade of tho Inrge manufactor
ies that have long monopolized certaiu
districts, is now to bo curtailed in the
protection given to other industrial en
terprises nearer the consumer, is nn.evi
denceofthe equalizing influences the
law will exert. It will make the people
of tho various states of tho union more
independent bv tho construction of
mills and fnotorios to utilizo
their own resonrces, and in this
way the centralization of great indus
tries that absolutely control the markets
of tho country cannot compete with tho
local industries. The opposition to tho
law comes exclusively from tho c who
control the markets far from tha jwint
of prodnction, while the people them
selves much prefer to see its operations
enforced and tho railroad business regu
lated by state laws upon a fair nnd im
partial business basis.
The people of this portion of Arizona
should make ready during tne warm

expect people to buy a dry and barren

that fruits will grow upon it; we must
demonstrate by actual fact that they Ho

lieanliful; scarlet vanadanito which
had fieen in Europe.
With tne aid of Dr. F. A. Gontb. it
wns proven that the abundant brown
crystals were the vnuaduto ot lead and
zinc. After one sees these rare nnd
striking crystals he easily recognize
them ughiu. The niiueraLidescholciz

that admit of no nrgnment. And as we

development such conditions entail and
predi:ta that within the next three

x AN OBDURATE OLD WOMAN23
Collapn of an Incident Which Opened
Very PromUIncly A Disappointment.
A rough bearded, red nosed, desperate
looking man; a shrill voiced, energetic
newsboy; an industrious old woman;
these three were brought together by tho
fates with the evident Intention of mak
ing such an incident as would read well
it told iu a Sunday bcbool paper. But the
Industrious old woman was obdurate, and
as she waa a woman the fates cocld not
help themselves and retired, leaving the
Incident to develop itself aa best it might.
So it happened thus: The scene was on
Park row, opposite the postoillcc; the
man In tho play, cold and hungry, ven
tured to beg assistance of a newsboy.
The boy knew what it meant to be cold
and hungry, but ho knew also that ho
must look out for number one.
"Just a cent, bub," pleaded the desper
Tell ye wot 'tis," said the boy reflec
tively, "i can t give ye no sugar, cause
I'm hard up myself, but I'll give ye a.
paper 'n y cn see wot ye c'n do."
The hungry man took up the paper and
before he could do or say anything tho
boy added: "Why not try a trade on the
eld woman at the cookey standf"
Together they approached tho old
woman. She waa seated on a stool behind
her array of pastry. A coarse shnwl was
wrapped about her ihoulders and her lin
gers were busy with knitting.
"Will ye give one of those for this
paper?" asked the man, abruptly, while the
dot stood by interested in tne experiment
to the extent that he neglected his owu
business. The cookey vender looked up
with disdainful surprise. "Hon?" she
"Will you give me one of those or any
thing on the stand for this paper?" re
peated the man.
"Give him a cooxey for uno News,"
chirped the boy.
The fates surely Intended the old woman
to display great kindness of heart, to sym
pathize with the unfortunate man, and
give him two cookies and let him keep his
paper as well, but she didn't do anything
of the kind.
"Phat's the good av ycr paper to me:-"
she exclaimed scornfully; "get along wid
de bot av yet or I'll carl a cop, so now."
The man and the boy looked nt each
other disappointedly. " Ye'll have to sell
jer paper, boss," said tho hitter philo
sophically. And the incident that opened
so promisingly collapsed. The last seen
of the man he was tryiiit; to sell his one
paper as he walked along the row. The
old woman, who "wasn't going to get
taken in by no suckers." had resumed
her knitting and the boy waa exercising
his shrill voice. "Uncle Bill" In Chicago
raattrae of Japanese Children.
Japanese children have an infinite
variety of sports, too varied for mention
in an article of this length. Boys devote
themselves to kite Hying in the spring
months, when the winds prevail. There
are singing and whistling kites In the
shape of birds, animals and men. Men
evea spend days dying monster kites so
large that it Lakes a stout rope to hold
them. Boys also spin tops, play soldier,
wrcstla and practice at all kinds of athletic
exercises. Tha fifth days of the fifth
months of each year are boy's festival
days, on which the younger sous of the
family have presents ot Hags decorated
with representations of the daring deeds
of the great men of the country, and espe
cially of those of their ancestors who have
been noted for bravery or wisdom.
On this day and for weeks afterward
the whole country presents a strange np
pearanco. Every house that has boya in
the family erects a flagstaff to which a
large cloth fish is suspended. Some of
these aro thirty or forty feet in length,
and when they are inflated by the breeze
look like a fish swimming in tho water.
These fish flags represent the carp, which
has the reputation of being the most
active, daring and persistent of all fish.
TMse are qualities which boys are taught
'te eaafelate. Girls play battledore and

Wb were informed, a short timo mAcI
by a reliable narty, that there is a band
ot rustlers, with headquarters on Cauoo
Creek, in the MogoIIon mountains, who
are carrying things with a high hand.
It is said there have been nt least 300
head ot horses stolen, during tbo past
year, from tbe western portion of this
county alone. And. as it ia a question
whether Cafion Creek ia in Apache or
Yavapai county. 11 ia not unreasonable
to suppose tnese gentry havo appro
propnated an eqnnl number of horses
from the honest people of Yavapai, We
understand some Mormons first located
on this stream, wtncu in peculiarly
adapted to the purposes of horse and
cattle thieving. The rustlers finding it
ao well suited to their wants, aatnally
drove the Mormons out ot their houses
and took possession. One follow to'd
so piteons a tale, that the rustlers fin
ally told him tbey would give him 215
for bis place, and be could take that or
nothing. Of course tho man had to toko
the money. The authorities ot this and
Yavopti county should act in concert
with rogard to thia nest ot thieves and
arrest or exterminate them. St. Johns

they will have a large crop it lato frosts
do not destroy it, which is so rernoto a
probability that it need not be taken
into aocount. The apncot and peachea
ot 1S76 will aleo bear heavily and can
be safely counted upon to repay
them for their original outlay. The
fourth year, no elemental disturbances
preventing, they can safely count on a
net income ot one hundred dollars an
