1 THE "SANKERO."
U nhappy Lot of a-Peculiar Figure of
the irrigation Country.
An eastern farmer coming to an frri
gated valley finds everything as dif
ferent from his accustomed life as he
can well imagine. He must learn an
entirely' new laniuage of farming and
a new set of farming rules. His neigh
bor greets him, not with the remark,
'It looks like rain," but "Have you
heard when the water is coming In?'
or "The ditches are low today." He
learns to speak of miners' inches and
acre feet of water, and he can soon
tell at a glanee whether a ditch is car
rying 50 or 100 miners' inches of wa
ter. He hears wise discussions of
headgates, weirs, laterals and zanjes.
He finds that he is "under" a certain
canal, which by and by will come to
seem to him like an inexorable fate.
He will very promptly make the ac
quaintance of the king of the irrigated
land, the zanjero, in Arizona called
"sankero," in California sometimes
shortened to "sanky," the water master
or ditch rider, a bronzed man in over
ails and sombrero, who drives about in
a two wheeled cart, 'with a shovel and
a long crooked tined fork by his side
and precious keys in his pockets. He
Is the yea and nay of the arid land, the
arbiter of fate, the dispenser of good
and evil, to be blessed by turns and
cursed by turns and to receive both
with the utter unconcern of a sinall
god, for it is the zanjero who distrib
utes the water. He opens the head
gate of each farmer's canal, and when
the water has run the necessary time
he shuts it down again and again locks
it securely. If the water is short, he
sees that it is divided properly between
Smith and Jones and Brown, usually
with Smith and Jones and Brown
watching him like cats. It is a hard
place, that of zanjero in the valleys,
subject to accusations, temptations,
heartburnings; but, be it said to the
credit of the American,.there is many
a s:anjero who is universally respected
in his 'community as an honest man.

A Very Important Item. a
A very important matter that is now agitating the minds of t
many is where can they buy the best and cheapest lot of Shoes for e
themselves and their little ones. That question is settled with t
those who have been wearing the H. C. Godman Black Bottom
Shoes, and those who have not been wearing the H. C. Godman e
Black Bottom Shoes can find out what values they are by asking
their neighbors who have worn them. Don't ask us, ask them. f
We also carry a full line of Fine Hand-Made Shoes for both
Ladies' and Gent's. In short, to be brief, we carry the largest
stock of Shoes of any house in Clarendon county. Now we don't
wish you to swallow this down without investigation. Just come
to our store and look for yourself. f
500 pair of nice Pebble Grain Button and Lace Shoes that re
tail from Maine to Mexico for $1 per pair, but on our great bar- a
gain tour up North we scooped up this lot to sell them to you at
75c per pair. We defy competition to offer anything like it for a
less than $1 per pair. You get them while they last at 75c.
200 pair of real Dongola Button and Lace Shoes for Ladies
that look very cheap at $1.50 per pair, but you get this lot at $1.
Just call and see our great line of Men's Work Shoes that we
are selling at 95c per pair Nothing like it on the market for less
than $1.25, but 95c is all we want for them while they last.
Call and see us when you want Shoes, we will do you good. t
LISTEN TO OUR NOTION TAL
This important department is fairly bristling with bargains.
The following will convince you: t
50 dozen Ladies' PURE LINE1 Hemstitched Handkerchiefs, t
13x13 inches in size, only 5c each. To give you some idea of what
a value this is,our first 50 dozen came in three weeks ago and they e
went out like a whirlwind and now we have gotten our second 50
dozen. Why some houses don't sell 50 dozen handkerchiefs in
three years, much less in three weeks, but nevertheless this is our
recrdfull line of all kinds of Ladies' and Gent's Handkerchiefs
very cheap, including a nice line of Ladies' Embroidered Handker- s
chiefs from f0 to 35c each.3
