usual season. Conditions were about

In former 'ears it was custonmary
for the shtlp mer, to drive their i
flecKs from Mohave county to the Salt I
River valley for the liauhing and
shearing season, using the forest
ranges running north and south for
forage along the route both north and
south. tBut the new forest rt'giltiions
now prohibit this use of the govern
ni-nt reserves; the sheep ilen have
been unable to get their flocks through, I
especially through the Verde valley,
so that the movement south was aban
doned this season.
In addition to the restrictions placed
upon the forest reserves, the valleys
that in former years were green, ow
ing to the cold, dry weather and the
consequent lack of rains, this year
were not green enough to support the
moving flocks. The result of this is
that those flocks which were moved
south, for lack of grazing in the cen
tral Arizona valleys, had to hasten
back north, where the lambing proved
disastrous, not only to the lamhkins
but to the ewes as well. For this
reason 70 per cent. of the sheep shorn
in Arizona for 1910 had the clipping
dlone in Yavnlapa county, midway be
tween the valley and northern ranges,
this being the lowest altitude obtain
able where there was the combina
tion of clipping facilities, nearby ship
ping points and fair ranges. By the
1same token it is no0w lredlctedl th::t

be, or would be under more favorable
Thie largest shearing point in Yapaval I
county this year was at Cordes, where
between 13,o;00 and 1-10,000 pounds of
wool was clipped. The clip at King
mnan ran to 60,000 head, and the gov
ernment replorts credit Arizona with
an average yield of fleece weighing
.C(.5 pounds per sheep, which would
bring 4he yield up to more than 300,
000 pounds. Owing to the conditions re
ferred to in the foregoing, the clip in
the northern part of Arizona will be
later than usual this year. because the
owners of the flocks prefer to await
a late clip rather than risk the loss
of the lambs.
Pirices for wool in Arizona this year
rant;ed around thle prices of last
-ear. Agents paid on the ground bie
tween 20 and 22 cents for the clip

to dispilay a gnrous amount of Ig

1 not the case
Inv'esti ation has disclosed the fact
1 that those signs, at least most of
,r them, serve as business getters. They
are the imeliumls which bring and
(, hold the for igners tog(ther, and they
d. attract hun lrds of up-to-(date Amer
leans, who think those signs stand
l for just what lh'y want. The adver
tir lsing in the foreign districts, how
ft ever crude it may soeni, is in many
r r(-spectts more up to date than what is
used downtown. Many of the foreign
ers-anud mnany in the foreign districts
T are matured Americans-couhi lpre
pare or ordr as pretty signs as seen
d anywlere, hut this would spoil the
Imsiness tn thiose districts, and the old
signs are retained.
