Such is the climate in Yuma,
but few people know it. A far

It may not be known to ever7
citizen but it ought to be, and like
wise taught to every school boj,
that the Stars and Stripes is the
oldest flag of any nation, as well
as the most glorious, says the New
York Marine Journal. No flag has
prior claim in point of years. The
English poet who wrote about the
Union Jack, as "the flag that
braved a thousand years the battle
and the breeze" rather overstepped
the literal; for the flag only dates
its distinctive from the formation
of the United Kingdom 1801. The
tricolor of France was only adopt
ed in 1794. The flag of the Span
iards was only established 1795.
The Italian and German banners
are no older than the existing re
gimes of those countries But the
Stars and Stripes were proclaimed
as the flag of the United States by
resolution of congress passed June
14, 1777. And for its glory, it has
never been defeated, but achieved
the greatest victory ever won from
the English, which is surely enough
glory for any flag. No wonder,
then, that our flag will ever be
known as ''Old Glory." It has
always had all the glory that any
nation could aspire to attain.
In the matter of climate Yuma
is now commencing to receive that
recognition which the town was
always entitled to. People are
coming here for their health, and,
after trial, staying here. These is
no more healthy climate in the
world than that of Yuma, during
all seasons, and for nine months of
the year, it is unsurpassed in love
liness. Even in the Summer time
people are more distressed by the
degrees of heat measured by the
thermometer than by the effects of
that heat. As a matter of fact
there is less suffering here, during
warm weather, than in any of the
large eastern cities. The atmos
phere is so dry that there is a
total absence of that oppressiveness
felt in moister climates, and though
men work steadily all day in the
open air, sunstrokes never occur.
Malarious diseases are unknown
and the diyness of the atmosphere
acts as a sanitary wall against the
effects of epidemics, even small-pox
leaving no perceptible marks.
There is no doubt but what Yuma
will become a great sanitary resort,
and when it becomes generally
known that we have, in the South
ern Pacific House, as fine a hotel
as can be found in Arizona, with
most excellent accommodations
and fare, those who are ailing in
health will not only come them
selves at once but will bring their
families. Truly this county has
remarkable and unfailing, resources
in soil and climate, and the Senti
nel proposes at all times in the
future, as in the past, to ventilate
those resources. In that connec
tion it may not be amiss to suggest
that those interested in the welfare
of the county aid the Sentinel in
its work as only a struggling news
paper can be helped.

inc, levying, and collecting certain taxes
