Tin) population is estimated at 1,500.
Siuco the advent of the railroad,
little moro thau a jear ago, the popu
lation lias uecomo more peimanent. A
great many of the emplou-es of the
company have built homes and brought
their families there, and the mountain
side is graced with many haiidsomo
cottages. Tlio lowu has electiic lights
and water works. Tlio town lies on
tlio side of a steep mountain, 5,500 feet
above sea level and 1,800 feet above
the Verde liver, six miles distant. The
main street is only wide enough to
admit the passage of a wagon, and the
ride from tlio depot to the hotel is cal
culated to make the hair of" a tender
foot staud on end.
Until November, 1894, every pound
of freight to and from the United Verde
mines had to bo carried oxer the inouu
tain cither by tlio bucket line or hauled
by wagons to and from tho railroad,
thirty miles. Tho United Verdo & Pa
cific railroad now connects the camp
with tho outer world at Jerome Junc
tion, forty-two miles south of Ash
Fork. Tho road is a narrow gaugo
and is twenty-eight miles in lenghth,
and for fourteen miles out of Jerome
it is probably tho most crooked road iu
the world. These fourteen miles em
brace tho mountain poitiou, and winds
along the side of the mountain and
across canyons iu its de ions route to
tho United Verdo mines. Tho road
abounds in curves, many of theinfoity
fivc degrees, and iu tho fourteen miles
thero are only livo places Iu which the
traiu of soou cars cau straighten out,
butiu no place is theio a grcatergrade
thau three per ccut. The scenery over
this portion of the road is indcsciibably
grand, and it might be termed "the
grand view line." A trip oer tho
Uuitud Vol do & Pacific is well worth
the time spout iu making it for the
grand view aloue. John Hums, for

Out of Evil Comes Good.
Oue of tho good outcomes of the evil
of demonetization of sliver has been a
stimulation of thescaicli for aud de
velopment of gold mines. There is uo
danger of the supply of gold becoming
too large, and there was a felt danger
iu the accumulation of idle capital iu
bauk vaults. No inconsiderable part
of this lias been let loose by the revival
of gold-miniug enterprises, and Ari
zona has becu among tbo regions
most attractive to the speculator. It
long was an artielo of belief amoug
miners that Arizona was productive
only of surface gold, and that uo "deep
workings" could bo developed iu its
limits. Expel ience has brought knowl
edge; Arizona is full of "deep work
ings," and it is not improbable that
the Arizona mines may equal those of
Africa iu productiveness. .g
A second result has been tho devel
opment of agriculture for supply of the
mining industiics. Aud hero again
Arizona has vindicated itself against
its calumniators. The Territory has
been described as au uutillablo wastO'
of rock aud sand, but irrigation has
made pai ts of it as productive as tho
famous valley of the Nile. Another,
though perhaps a minor, result has
been the discovery of the fitness of the
Territory as a sanitarium for consump
tives aud for the nervously exhausted.
There is' uo doubt that Arizona pos
sesses the finest winter climate in the
w'oild, as warm as that of New Or
lcaus, but less humid; as bracing as
that of Southern California, and free
from the afternoon fogs of the coast
Hue; as equable as that of Florida, but
free from the malaria that infests part

Tho modern farmer is uot content to
use the antiquated touls aud methods
of his fathirs. Iu this age of keen
competition tho farmer who wishes to
prosper needs aud gets the most im
proved farming implements; and by
reading the best agricultural literature
he keeps iu touch with tho spirit of
progress that pervades our farming
communities. Ho is particular, also,
in regard to the kind of seed he plauts
aud the manner of planting it. Tho
seeds must bo of highest fertility and
grown from the highest cultivated and
most profitable varieties of stock. Tho
great seed firm of D. M. Ferry & Co.,
Detroit, Mich., fully apprcciato this
fact, as is attested by their progressive
business methods and tho quality of
tho seed which they supply farmers
aud gardeners through the dealers all
over tho couutry. Tho reliability and
fertility of their seeds aro proverbial
and the largest seed business in tho
woild has been created by their sale.
In evidence of this firm's knowledgo of
tbo wants aud requirements of plant
ers, large and small, is "Ferry's Seed

greatest valuo to farmers and gardeners
