The new Cleveland baby is getting

Otiu local authorities aro to bo con

them to rid Flagstaff of tho tramp

were entered against them. Their

was put to the expense of feeding and
taking earo of them at a dead loss.

The farmers of Kansas aro paying
off their mortgages befoio they come
due. and the result will be that Eastern
capitalists will soon bo seeking now
investments. Capital is not going to
lie idle long, and some section will
derive tho benefits of it. Why not
solicit a share at least of these funds
for tho building of railroads aud de
velopment of this tho most favored
part of the great southwest? Safe
loans can bo made In this territory,
and at reasonable rates of interest. To
bo sure, the cry is always raised when
lands aro mortgaged that tho debt can
never be pain, and mat ine interest
will soon equal the principal. Such is
not tho case, but even grant It to be so.
Is it not better to secure capital to im
prove our vast areas of fertile and
tillable land, than to allow them to
remain as created, trampled over by a
few thousand head of cattle anil sheep?
No one can contradict but what tho
average stock range would yield a
much larger profit each year were it
cultivated and crops taken therefrom
than it does to-day at tho prices stock
command. Were the interest on a
mortgage to equal tho principal at the
expiration of ten years (which it would
not), the farmer would bo able to pay
off his indebtedness and still realize a
snug sum for his labors. No better
illustration of this fact is needed than
the turn affairs have taken with tho
Kansas land-owners. For years the
farmer thought himself overburded
with taxation and many left their
farms entirely, claiming that they
could not make a living on them, and
now the good news is being heralded
to tho world that those who stuck to
their farming and paid strict attention
to business are paying off their mort
gages before they are due. Certainly
this prosperity will not come to man
by his mortgaging his place and sitting
idly by, doing nothing whatever, for it
takes energy, push and persoverenco
to make ii success of even the most
trivial enterprise. We hope to see at
no distant day tho small, well improved
farm occupying a conspicuous place in
Northern Arizona, aud to tills end
iuvite foreign capital to our midst.

A change of teachers does not neces
sarily imply a change in the classifica
tion of pupils, but it lias been found
necessary to make many changes at
the beginning of this term's work.
These changes have occasioned adverse
criticism on the part of some disap
pointed parents, but they have been
made for the benefit of the pupils con
cerned. Tho largo Mcctious of pink
cardboard, which each pupil bore upon
cnterhiff school, may not have been ex
amined by the teachers (into so closely
as they should have been life is too
short for that but a glance showed a
grade of from 00 to 100 per cent in
nearly every study. These markings
were supposed to show that the pupil
had completed the books used in the
studies indicated. It was soon discov
ered that certain pupils were entirely
unfamiliar with subjects so completed.
For this reason many changes were
After classifying the pupils according
.to the markings on tho sections of pink
cardboard and accoiiluig to our own
judgment, and after learning as nearly
as possible their actual standing by
daily recitations for a month, it was
thought best to re-examine a certain
class of twenty-five boys and girls, be
tween the ages of nlno and thirteen,
upon the studies supposed to have been
completed last term, and in which, ac
cording to the sections of pink card
board, nearly every member of tho
class obtained a grade of from DO to
100 per cent. The result may bo con
sidered by any one interested. Tho
papers aro ou lilo and open to the in
spection of those concerned, lucre
was not a question propounded (.except
in language) that can not bo found
word for word, together with its cor
rect answer, in one of the books which
according to the pupil's section of pink
cardboard ho completed last j ear, ol
tainlng in final examination from 90 to
100 per cent.
Let us examine these papers closely.
And bo it remembered that I am call-
ins: attention to facts, not because I
wish to complain of last year's work
Con the whole I think it must have
been good), but because of tho com
plaint on the part of certain parents
that their children havo been placed
back Instead of put forward. Now I
wish to state that whatever mistakes in
judgment or failures in execution I
may make, it is my purpose and earn
est desire to deal justly aud kindly
with all concerned.
Am I vexed at these complaints?
Not at all gratified rather; for they
show that the parents are deeply inter
ested in the education of their children.
They desire that their boys and girls
make the greatest possible advance
ment in tho given time. Thoy are so
greatly in earnest and so alive to tho
importance of their children's acquir
ing an education in tno nays oi ineir
youth, while tho evil days come not,
nor the years draw nigh when they
shall say "I am too big to go to school,"
that sometimes they consult with tho
trustees regarding the classification
lind scholastic welfare of their young
hopeful, meanwhile allowing -said
young hopeful, perhaps?, to go tardy to
school or be absent.
If tho parents and teachers of such j
boys and girls as these can agree, iney
will undoubtedly make scholars. Hut
let us lay the foundation well. In our
mad rush for knowledge, let us not
trample under foot the priceless gems
of truth that lie in our path to-day for
what to-morrow may bring forth. Let
us not try to reach the fifth step of tho

grades range from -1 to 58 in arith

but Ihreo out of the twenty-five that

from 20 to 08 per cent. Those making
as oi1 moro m arithmetic aud an aver
age of 50 or moro were kept lit tho
advanced department, and the re
mainder placed in the intermediate.
Thoso concerned are invited to come
and see whether tho classifications have
not been made justly. It is not im
possible for teachers to err in judg
ment, but it seems that tho opinion of
teachers who havo taught a number of
ycats in graded schools Miould have at
least some weight In determining to
which class a pupil should belong.
When parents presume so much upon
tho iguoranco and inefficiency of teach
ers, I am reminded of the dignified
but seedy individual, of whom I read
recently, who entered a cheap res
taurant, took off his gloves, hung his
hat and overcoat upon the hooks, dusted
the chair, brushed the crumbs from the
table cloth, and then addressed the
waiter as follows: "If jou have just

leaving just a little juice on them; put

pan over a coal fire, being careful to
keep tho pan in motion so as not to let

You do not think of questioning thoi
opinion of your doctor or lawyer; then
why that of the teacher? Is ho not

of his profession as the lawyer does of

say, "I want you to doctor my family.
You can mix and administer the medi

Or to the lawyer and say, I havo a
very difficult c:ise for your to take, but
you must follow my instructions. I
will explain what the law is and how
to apply it, but you can make out the

would probably remind me that the
man who was his own lawyer had a
fool for a client. Or to a clertrym.in,
"We have decided to hire you as pas

The state agents of the Government
in Maine report that a greater or less
number of sheep were purchased last
summer to consume the surplus hay
fin the central part of the State. In tho
older counties, lit the vicinity of the
large towns, there is a decrease in the
number of sheep, due to the ravages of
dogs. In New Ilamshire there seems
to have been a revival of interest in
the sheep husbandry in certain quar
ters. .Many farmers who discontinued
sheep raising a few years ago aro now
buying small iloeks, of a better grade
than were formerly kept. In Connecti
cut there aro enough waste districts
and winter forage to maintain
times as main sheep as now exist.
In New York the keeping of sheep
would demand, more general attention
but for tho ravages of dogs. The dog
nuisauco is a great drawback to sheep
raising in many Slates. In Ohio and
Michigan sheep have increased in num
bers and quality, the mutton breeds
having the lead. For three years past
the product of the Hocks has been
largely sold for feed or fed by the
farmers. In most of the old States
mutton breeds are now the most po-
The net decrease in the number of
sheep January 1, 1891, from 1890
shows a total of 904,930; net increase
over 1889 is 832,057; the decrease
since 1881 shows the larger total of
7,195,190 sheep. Thus ill 1881 Texas
had 7,950,275 sheep, while she now has
3.000,000 less. This heavy loss was
chiefly due to the blizzards of 188C,
which wiped out 2,000,000 of hersheep.
The great loss to California ami Ore
gon as compared to 1890 must bo as
cribed to this same cause. It is evi
dent that if sheep raising is to advance
in the eastern and middle states, it
must be along the line of mutton sheep
rather than those reared mainly for
the clip of wool.
With a decrease in sheep from a year

Arizona a Mnllfjnrd Territory.
In eommeuting upon Acting Gov
ernor Murphy's report, tho Denver
Republican of recent date says:
"Arizona is probably the most ma
ligned territory in tho Union. It is
commonly thought of as though it were
a ilesert a vast waste of sand, blister
ing under a torrid sun. Hut as a mat
ter of fact it is a highly favored part of
tho arid region. It contains a forest
of nearly 10,000 square miles in area
one of the largest forests in tho United
States. Besides, It has numerous fer
tile valleys, watered by never failing
streams. These valleys are being re
claimed by irrigation, and the results
show that tho soil aud climate of Ari
zona arc both well adapted to tho pro
duction of various agricultural products
of the temperate zone.
"One of the valleys referred tx is
that of tho Salt Bi er, which lies in tho
southern part of the territory, and of
which tho principal city is l'hwnix.
This valley has a semi-tropical climate.
Oramres. lemons and various other
seini-tropic.il fruits are grown there
with tho greatest success. These fruits
ripen earlier than they do in Southern
California, aud this gives tho Salt
Itlver country an advantage over Cali
fornia in supplying the early fruit
market of the far East. Horticulture
in that part of Arizona is destined to
become a prosperous rnd extensive in
dustry. "Where Arizona has fallen off com
pared with what it was nine or ten
voars ago. is in respect to its mineral
output. Then the mining camp of
Tombstone was at the summit of its
glory, and Arizona's mineral output
entitled it to rank among the foremost
mineral producing sections of the
Union. But nearly all the mines in
Tombstone hao been shut down, and
iu other localities the mineral resources
of the territory have not been sullici
eutly developed to bring the output up
I to what it was in xoniostone s uay.

this respect are great, and it is a ques
