fir Puitlcular attention nald to all
PREHISTORIC itlDIAH CANALS.
The greatest sotiycnir left by the
aboriginal races o'f' North"" America,
says a writer iu the "Irrigation Age,"
is the immense network of.ptuhi&torio
irrigating canals that intersect tho
Halt River and Glla valleys of Ari
zona. The age of 'thosu canals is
entirely a matter of conjecture. But
one tradition exists among the pres
ent Indian tribes' regarding them,
and that is only of their destruction.
When in 1542 Coronada, the Intrepid
conquistador of old Spain, seeking in
the north tho seven mile's of Cibola,
fiom which he might wregt glory and
gold, as Cortez and Pizarrb Mini done
in the south, Oral saw these immense
ruins, he was astonished at their ex
tent and size, hut failed to learn
aught of their age or builders. To
him, as to many a later traveler, the
old Indian tradition was piobahly
to d of how the immense valleys hud
been once peopled by a dense and
prosperous population, who greatly
excelled all other people in the man
ufacture of stone implements, the
building of great houses, aud in
changing the desert into a mighty
garden by putting on it the waters of
the great riveis.
Nuver has tho levol of the best of
modern engineers been able to im
prove on the lines of these ruined
canals, while in thu selection of loca
tions nt which to take the water from
the rivers tlicie are exhibited the
greatest skill aud intelligence, It
was these luins that in the early
'70'b first gave the American settlers
the idea of reclaiming the valley
where now stands Phoenix, the capital
of the Territory, surrounded by a
population of nearly 20,000 souls,
the first canal constructed simply
following the line of a prehistoric
one. In the selection of the loutes
"of the subsequent ones, it was merely
the question of picking out of the
labyrinth of ruins the lines of the
main canals and following them.
This at limes was difficult work, for
some of the laterals were of con
siderable size and capacity.
How extensive the entire system
of iirigation in the Salt River valley
alone wa9 may be inferred from the
fact that the amount of land piac
tically covered by the canals was
over a quarter of, a million acres,
nearly treble the rca of the lands at
ncaaent actually" juKivaU-l within
the County of Los Angeles, Cal.
The population supported must have
been very great, for it is almost im
possible to find an acie within the
line of ancient acquias on which frag
ments of pottery, shell ornaments or
stone implements cannot be found,
while thu ruins of ancient adobe
habitations can be seen in every
direction where they have not been
obliterated by the settler. These are
always of the style still to be found
among the Zuui, Moqui and otherFue
blo Indians of the Southwest, thick,
strong walls, with a few openings
for doors and windows, and small
rooms, with the buildings clustering
so closely together as to form almost
one tenement. Estimating the acre
age of the past as being one acre to
two persons, the present rule among
the Pueblo tribes, the population
supported by the ditches would not
fall short of 500,000 an estimate
the best authorities consider conser
vative. The canals themselves, with their
principal laterals, must have exceed
ed 1000 miles in length, and the
ruins of ninny of them give evidences
of the vast labor of their construc
tion. It is to be regretted that the gov
ernment, in the interest of science,
has made no provision by which tho
few remaining ruins of this descrip
tion still intact can be jjiveu a thor
ough and scientific investigation be
fore the last traces of this ancient
skill in irrigation engineering have
A FAVORITE REMEDY.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is a
favorite during the winter mouths on
account of its gieat success in the
cure of "colds. There is nothing that
will loosen a severe cold so quickly,
or as promptly iclieve tho lungs.
Then it counteracts any tendency to
ward pneumonia. It is pleasant and
safe to take, and fully worthy of its
populutity. For sale by all dealers.
