The striking and important events
of the last year have established the
overwhelming value of the Thrice-a-Week
World to every reader. For
an almost nominal sum it has kept
its subscribers informed of tho pro
gress of all our wars and, moreover,
has reported them as promptly and
fully as if it were a daily. With our
interests still extending throughout
the world, with our troops operating
in the Philppiues, and the great pres
idential campaign, too, at hand, its
value is further increased.
The motto of the Thrice-a-Week
World is improvement. It strives
each year to be better than it was the
year before, and public confidence in
it is shown by the fact that it now
circulates more than twice as many
papers every week as any other news

A party of geologists from the
Northwestern University, headed
by Prof. A. R. Crook, is now in
Wyoming for the purpose of explor
ing the fossil fields of that state in
the interest of science, at the invi
tation and expense of the Union
Pacific Railroad Co. The party is
accompanied by Prof. W. C. Knight
of the Wyoming State University.
Wyoming has been referred to as
the geological wonderland of the
world. Within its borders are the
most extensive fossil-bearing ter
janes known to science, and here
are found the most gigantic speci
mens of land animals that ever had
an existence since the world began,
beside which the largest elephant
of modern days becomes a pigmy
The largest of these fossil colossal
animals was discovered last August
by W. H. Reed of the department
of geology of the Wyoming State
University, 90 miles northwest of
Laramie City. It was a Dinosaur,
measuring 130 feet in length, 35
feet in height at the hips and 25
feet at the shoulders, the petrified
skeleton of which, it is thought,
will weigh 40,000 pounds. In the
Yale museum at New Haven, Ct.,
is a gigantic Brontosaur, an ani-
malofakind similar to the Dino
saur above referred to. This also
came from Wyoming and from the
same formation the Jurassic. The
skeleton was restored by Professor
Marsh in 1891 . It was 70 feet in
length, and is presumed to have
weighed in life 80,000 pounds, be
ing surpassed iii this respect 50,
000 pounds by the new discoverj',
The animal was 25 feet high at the
hips and 16 feet at the shoulders.
The vertebra of the anfma.1 is 44
inches in height. Its femur is more
than 6 feet in length. The femur
of the Dinosaur recently discover
ed is eight feet long. The body of
the Dinosaur is comparatively
short but very thick. Mr. Reed
says of the animal, the skeleton of
which he is restoring:
"An accurate idea of the Dino
saur is out of the question. The
ribs of this animal are about 9 feet
long, his tail 60 feet, his neck 30
feet, his abdominal cavity with
lungs and entrails removed would
have formed a room 34 feet in
length, 16 in width and arched
overhead probably 12 feet in height,
a space in which 40' people might
be seated. A round steak from the
ham of the animal would have been
21 feet in diameter and would have
had a solid bone in the middle 12
xl4 inches, with r.o.hple for marrow.

In reply to a question concerning
his views on expansion, Senator
Stewart of Nevada said today:
"We have expanded and it is no1
longer a question whether or hot
we are in favor of it. It makes nb:
difference whether the United States
had a right to buy those islands or
whether Spain had a title to dispose
of them. The facts remain that we
did bsy them, and we are there now
to give the natives an opportunity
to rule themselves.
"May be our arguments are rather
strong, but that is apparently the
only way to deal with these people."
We cannot sell them. If we sold
them it would be to some monarchy,'
and the people of the United States
would stamp with unanimous dis
approval the sale of a country and
"The policy of the United States
in the Philippines has not been ag
gressive enough. I believe a more
vigorous campain will be waged in
The matter of artesian water is
being discussed by Safford people
and the Arizonian has t lie follow
ing to say on the subject: "It has
been suggested that an experi
mental artesian well be sunk some
where in town. We think this ex
periment an excellent idea and a
subscription should be circulated
at once among the business men on
Main street for this: purpose. A.
good point would be the middle of
the street at the crossing 'between
the Palace saloon and the drug store."
Thi3 is a central location," and a
flowing well there would greatly
enhance the value of all property,
in this end of the town. Should5
the experiment prove successful,
then, of course, many others would
