Augmentation of the Pop
ulation. Admission to Statehood to Ho Asked
Orcnt 1'roKrcHs in Irrigation
While there has been uo phenomenal
growth in Arizona during the past
twelve months, tho srrowth of the
Territory has been steady and (substan
tial. A number of colonists from Kan
sas and Nebraska have settled in the
agricultural valleys in the southern
part of tlio Territory, and it is safe to
put the increase of population tho past
year at oOOO, the total of tho Territory
now reaching 70,000.
A constitutional convention was held
in September, and the constitution
then prepared was adopted by a very
'largo majority on tho first Tuesday in
December. An effort will bo made
before tho present Cougtcss to be ad
mitted as a state.
Coconino county, with Flagstaff for
the county scat, was organized out of
Yavapai county by the Legislature last
February. Tho new county is pros
perous, and tho lumber aud sandstone
interests, of which Flagstaff is the cen
ter, ar; doing tho largest business in
In tho past mining has been tho
nincipal industry of the Territory, and
t still holds a prominent place, though
tgriculturo is making rapid strides,
joine of the largest copper mines in
ho world are located in Arizona, aud
is nearly as can bo ascertained the
liroduction for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1891, exceeded 30.0G0.000
pounds its value being given at $ I, -
.'00,000. Considerable iucreaso in
iiimc of the plants has been made tlur-
nj: tho last six months. The United
Verde, in Yavapai county, has con--truccd
a tramway over twenty miles
n length to connect with tho i'rescott
; 1 ml Arizona Central Railway, aud
there is now a camp of nearly 1500
people about tho mines and smelter.
I'ho Copper Queen Company, which
iporates the largo mines at Uisbce, in
Cochise county, recently purchased the
Buffalo mine and a number of other
claims at Globe, Gila county, and is
prcpatingto greatly increase the out
put of that lively camp.
Mohavo county, in which many Cali-
foruians prospected iu the early six
tics, is showing a steady increase in
the value of her mines, several valtt
tblo gold properties having been open
ed this year. Jin "Cu- gold and silver
section of YatTipailJountyr-notably that
of thcllradshaw district, has been more
prosperous than ever before iu its
hisory, tlio gold output alono having
been over $500,000. Tho Harqua Hala
district iu northern Yuma count,
about which there was so much excite
ment in (he early part of 1889, has
proved to bo all that was claimed for
it. A' year ago a California company
purchased tho Bonanza group, erected
reduction works and set about system
atic work. Four months' run ending
December 1st resulted in $120,000 in
1,-old bullion. Other mining districts
in Pima, Pinal, Cochise and Graham
counties hare been prosperous, and
tho output of gold and silver for the
territory since January 1, 1891, based
partly on reports and partly estimated
is fully $4,000,000.
Large onyx beds have been discover
ed tho past year in Maricopa and Co
chise counties and onyx from tho Ya
vapai couuty deposits is now being
shipped in considerable quantities.
It is in agriculture aud fruit raising
that tho greatest progress is being
made. Of course these Industries can
only bo carried on by irrigation. Ma
ricopa couuty, of which Phoonix is the
county seat, has mado tho most prog
ress in this direction, there being over
250,000 acies under the various canals,
6000 acres of which is in fruit. With
in tho last two years attention has
been directed to citrus and semi-tropical
fruits. Tho first orange orchard
was planted in April 1889, and this
year-bore a considerable crop of very
superior quality, tho orauges ripening
in November. Tho first fig orchards
were planted in March 1888, aud they
produced largo crops in 1890 aud 1891,
being pronounced by old fruit growers
of California as superior to any other
grown in the United States. Raisins,
limes, lemons, pomegranates, apricots,
peaches, plums, primes and nil other
fruits do well. Last spring COO acres
of oranges were plautod in tho vicinity
of Phoenix, and it is estimated that this
season's planting of tho same fruit will
bo 4000 acros.
A great deal of work has been done
the past summer iu enlarging the old
cauals, thus enabling them to water
more laud. Surveys are now being
mado for tho construction of a large
reservoir and canal system in tho foot-
iills uorthof Pliccuii that wilJVriug 150.
000 acres under cultivation. Twenty
two miles northwest of Gila Hend, on
tho Southern Pacifin Railroad, is being
constructed n largo dam on the Gila
river, from which canals will be taken
that will bring from 170,000 to 200,
000 acres of tho Gila valley, cast of the
river, under cultivation. On Decem
ber 1st tho Citrus canal, fourteen
miles long, on tho west bank of the
Gila, just above the Yuma county line,
was opened. It irrigates 0000 acres of
fruit land, which will be set to oranges
this season by Riverside (Cal.) orange
In Yuma county a large area of bot
tom lauds along tho Colorado river is
being irrigated by pumping water from
tho river. Surveys have been made
for a large canal that will extend into
Mexico, " the head to bo at Steveson
island in tho Colorado, where a small
dam will raise the liver from eight to
Tucson, tho oldest cit in tho Terri
tory, which has always been a shipping
and supply point for mines, has caught
the irrigation fever nnd work was be
gun in November by an English com
pany in constructing a canal through
tho Santa Cruz valley. This canal
will bring under water over 125,000
acres and will give new life to the old
In Pinal county about 15,000 acres
are under cultivation and with the
completion of the Florence c.-uial, now
building, 00,000 acres additional will
bo utilized. Graham county has 10,-
000 acres under cultivation in tho up
per valley of tho Gila.
lice keeping has proved profitable in
the Salt River valley, over 200,000
pounds of honey having been shipped
to the Eastern markets this season.
The success attending fruit cult tiro
is giving new life to all the southern
part of the lerntory, and what was
formerly a vast desert is rapidly being
transformed into a veritable paradise.
Progress has been slow in tho past,
but the development has now reached
that stage where it will bo exceedingly
Ono serious drawback to the progress
of Arizona has been the lack of trans
portation facilities between the mining
lumber and building-stone districts of
the north and the rich agricultural
valleys of the south. In March last
the Legislature passed a law exempting
from taxation for twenty years all rail
roads built within live jears. Several
companies have filed articles of inten
tion with the Secretary of the Territo
ry and on the 1st of October dirt was
thrown at l'hamix on the Santa Fe,
I'rescott and Phoenix Railroad, which
will run from a connection with the
Santa Fe system in tho north through
I'rescott and tho rieh mineral country
adjacent to Phoonix. Thirty miles of
this road are now graded north from
Phoenix and construction Is being rap
idly pushed. Arrangements were com
pleted the 1st of December for tho pur
chase of the I'rescott and Arizona Cen
tral, a road seventy-four miles in
length running from Prescott Junction
on tho Atlantic and Pacific south to
tho city of Prescott. This will leave
but about 140 miles to build between
Prescott and Phoenix, thirty miles of
which are already graded. Tho offi
cers of tho company assert that they
will have tho road completed and
trains running b November 1, 1892.
This will give a great impetus to de
velopment, and the people of tho Ter
ritory generally believe that the phe
nomenal growth of tho Northwest in
1888-89 will be duplicated in Arizona
in 1892-93 San Francisco Chronicle.
'Tho Irrigation Ago" for Janunry.
The Irrigation Ago for January
1st comes out in a new and handsome
dress. This is tho first time tho Age
has been printed and bound in its own
office, and tho result is tho handsomest
class journal in tho West. As usual
this journal is crowded from cover to
cover with interesting and valuable
matter for everybody interested in ir
rigation. Its leading article is tho
first installment of a series of impor
tant papers on "Fanning Methods of
tho Greeley Colony," by David Uoid.
Greeley is everywhere regarded as a
model in irrigation methods and re
sults, and these articles will bo of
great value to irrigators throughout
tho West. Another important attich
describes the best methods of cultiva
ting sugar beets by irrigation. This is
by C. A. Granger, agricultural expert
of tho great sugar factory at Lehi,
Utah, tho first factory iu tho world
making sugar from irrigated beets.
The Washington correspondence ol
Tho Ago presents tho lateit news ol
irrigation matters at the Capital, and
is getting to be a very valuable feature.
Every department of the paper is
crowded with valuable reading, and
the announcement for new features of
1872 is enticing. In nine months Tho
Irrigation Ago has gained a national
reputation and a very high placo in
tlw affections ol tlio AVcsteru people
MAKING PORE GOLD.
The Discovery Made by an Hum
An EnRlIsli Genius Who tVns Dying
In Most Absolute l'ovcrty Ac
A savant has been discovered who
has succeeded in producing by the
most simple means the results so eager
ly hotight for by the toilers In science
ever since the days of King Solomon,
who is thought by adepts to have been
himself ono of the most expert. This
wondrous adept, who sees nothing ex
traordinary iu the wonderful work he
has accomplished, is a man 70 years
of age, doomed to solitude aud poverty
as all such great men are.
Heliesina quarter perdu beyond
Grenelle and the interviewer was as
tonished at tho extraordinary proofs of
the man's genius as ho unfolded one by
ouc the specimens of the progress aud
gradual perfection of tho work to
which ho had devoted the better part
of his long life, with no more satisfac
tory result than the miserable dwelling
in which he was barely sheltered from
the elements a wretched garret,
through- the roof of which tin; rain was
at the very moment of the interview
filtering in streams upon the iloor.
The adept displayed before (he visitor
several specimens of gold in its various
stages. A lump of gold, for instance,
taken from a mine in Mexico, and by
its side another piece, produced by the
mixture of different metals, according
to proportion, and not to be distiu
guished from the original substance as
taken from the mine. Even with the
magnifying glass no difference could
bo detected. His explanation of the
method by which he had arrived at
the fabrication of tho metal was Ideal
and simple. He Irid always been im
pressed with the idea that gold was
created by the combination of other
metals, and that it was simply the
highest perfection of breeding, upon
tho same principle that is visible in the
gradual development of objects bo-
longing to the animal aud vegetable
kingdoms. Tho determination to as
certain the fact upon the very spot of
its production induced him to start
forth, amid unheard of hardships and
opposition, to begin his work in Mexi
co just five and forty years ago.
"The identity of the two specimens
now before you," said the adept, "is
absolute and undeniable; they arc the
same iu every respect. I defy the
minutest examination of the most skep
tical among the savants; the color, the
weight, the proportions of the compo
nent elements are identical. And yet
here I have been waiting a whole life
time for somo one to bring mo help
and encouragement to multiply my ex
perimcuts, iu order to convince tho
world that the precious metal to which
mankind has ever attached such undue
value is of itself valueless. Tho mock-
cry and laughter with which I was
greeted on my return to Europe nearly
half a ceutury ago filled mo with des
pair, and I gave up at once all the
hope which had sustained me through
the long years of hardship and priva
tion 1 hau endured the hope 01 en
riching my country by means of my
discovery, and rendering it independ
ent, whether of war or famine, of com
mcrcu or, indeed, of anything but
death." "And how have you lived all
these years?" inquired tho interviewer,
s livering as ho gazed at tho comfort
less aspect of tho place in which this
imaginative benefactor of the human
race was lodged. Aud then the adept
was fain to confess that whilo his moral
was sustained by tho dream of tho
future wealth of the world, in which
he could not hopo to share, his physi
que Was dependent on his labors as a
cheap photographer, at which profes
sion ho earns just enough to keep the
few sparks of lifo still romaining in his
poor worn-out body from being extin
guished altogether. Pall Mall Budget.
Dressing in Good Taste.
American ladies, especially iu tho
larger cities and towns, are becoming
noted for their good taste in dress.
This is largely duo to tho fact that thej
secure the best Fashion J'mrnal pub
tisht'd, and by a careful stud of them
they get correct ideas upon the all
important subject of dress. Any lady
can cultivate her taste in this direction
if sho vv ill only go to tho trouble of
comparing the styles found in the re
liable Fashion Journals published by
A. McDowell & Co., 4 West 14th St.,
N. Y., with those appearing iu other
Fashion Magazines. Those issued by
A. McDowell & Co., are produced only
by tho best artists, aud are for the
most part plain, and in evety respect
pracllc.il; the others are generally very
loud or dowdy, and thoroughly un
suitable for tho requirements of Amer
ican women. The firm of 'A, SIcDow
ell & Co., seeks to furnish ladies with
genuine French stales, such as can bo
used without any danger of appearing
ridiculous. Hence their Fashion Jour
nals are now tho faorites with all
ladies of good taste throughout the
country. "La Mode tie Paris" gives'
tho latest French stjlcs. "Album des
Modes" furnishes styles which are pop
ular in Paris. "La Mode" gives a
selection of stales which are service
able to tho family. Tho two former
are each 35 cents a copy, or tjsl.OO a

$1.50 per annum. They are supplied

Tho ltlght Arm and. Left Foot.
The right arm is always a little
larger than tho left, but tho left foot is
almost always larger than tho right,
presumably because, while nearly every
man uses his right arm to lift a weight
or strike a blow, he almost invariably
kicks with his left foot, while tho
lounger stands on his left leg and Ids
his right fall easily, because bo has
learned by experience that this is tho
best attitude he can assume to prevent
lassitude and fatigue. This constant'
bearing of tho weight on tho left foot '
makes it wider than tho right, and it
