One of the most eiuvcssfiil experi
ments in motion: times in reclaiming
desert wastes is that which has -been
mado by tho French in Algeria. The
area of that provinco is about 330,000
square miles. Nearly one-half of this is
included within tho limits of tho great
Desert of Sahara. Much of this waste
land is below tho level of the sea. Tho
French agriculturists havo undertaken
to reclaim the desert. They began by
boring wells nt first as experiments. It
was found that wnlor could be obtained
at doptli8 ranging from 100 to -100 feet.
Whorover wnter could bo brought to
tho surfneo of tho land great fertility
was tho result. At the last accounts
thero wero no less than 13,000 wells in
operation. 15y this means 12,000.000
acres hnve been redeemed, nnd tho
work still goes on. Tho water is col
lected in reservoirs, and is conducted to
tho various plantations.
On what was formerly iv sandy waste
thoro aro now l'JO.OOO acres planted with
vines. Besides reclamation by menus
of nrtosian wGllg there nro eoino living
streams thot hnvo been utilized, so that
Algeria has 17.000,000 acres under irri
gation, on which not only mo all the
cereals produced, but grapes, olives,
dates and tobacco nro all leading crops.
In addition to annual crops, not less
that 6,000,000 acres havo been planted
with forest trees'. Where forests are
planted nnd thrive, thero cnu bo no
desert. This system of agriculture, it
is expected, will bo extended until a
greater part of tho 150,000 equaro miles
formerly classed ns desert, will havo
been turned into fruitful fields.
Years ago thoro were many specula
tions ns to tho feasibility of Hooding tho
Desert of Sahara ond creating thero a
great inland Een. Hut the French ag
riculturists have found better uso for so
much of it as is under their control. A
few years ago Cardinal Lavigera pro
posed a plan for making conquests in
the Desort of Sahara outsido of Algeria.
Stations wero to bo established at suit
able points where water could bo found.
Tho desert was to bo reclaimed in spots.
Having created fruitful fields nnd or
chards in ono place, a colony was to bo
sent forward to found another station.
In this way a chain of ngrirulturn
posts was to bo extended across the
desert. These would have a religious
character. But tho agricultjral system
would do much to break up the slave
caravans and bring tho whole country
into n condition to support a large civi
lized population. Very littlo is heard,
of late years, about this experiment.
Tho establishment of a singlo station
might require years, nnd would at first
attract littlo attention. Hut nlrendy
tho greatest agricultural triumph of the
ago is foreshadowed in the prospective
reclamation of tho vast part of tho
desort which is within tho dominion of
Tito experiments which havo been
prosecuted on tho desort lunds of this
country nro not unlike those already
noted. Water has turned BOino nrid
wasteB into fruitful fields. On tho Colo
rado Desert tho progress has been slow.
Rut water has been brought to tho sur
face from various depths by boring, and
extraordinary fertility has followed.
Dates, olives, grapes, melons and every
fruit known in semi-tropical climates,
take kindly to tho soil. Tho few suc
cessful experiments go far to sustain the
theory that by tho uo of water thero
will yet be thousands of gardens nnd
fruitful fields whero thero is now only
aridity and barrenness. Agriculture
has already established the fact that
with sufficient water nearly all desert
lauds can bo restored to fertility.

than bestial that tho secular press, not
usually ovor-uiodest, daro not describe

tho city authorities, society, his breth
ren of the clergy and the vicious classes
whom ho has exposed. The authorities
naturally feel injured becnuso a result
of Dr. Parkhurst's visit'! proves that
they have been disgracefully remiss.
Society is displeased becatifo thocour
gcous Dr. Parkhitrst has removed it

sickoning bloody bore. Tho clergy he

out of tho common, as duelists mid
physicians say, not according to the

has been made, but because tho authori
ties wero compelled by tho persistent
reverend gentleman to annoy them.
Hattio Adams, the vilest of the vilo,
threatens to swear that Dr. Purkhurst
sat calmly by and witnessed a nameless
performance in her house and that it
was paid for by the agent of the society
for the suppression of vice who accom

Dr. Parkhurst endeavored to fully nc

ing story, but it was true, nnd had the
client of compelling action and closing

His warfare was unrelenting und effect

din tho doctor lias brought nbout his

consolation of knowing that ho has ac

The McKinley bill removed all rlntien
on binding twino materials and about
four-fifths of tho duty on tho finished
article. In this respect the Republican
measure gave nioro than doublo tho
tarifT reduction offered by tho Mills
bill. Tho remaining remnant of tho
twino duty has become tho subject of
loud demonstration by tho Democratic
congressional majority and finally has
been voted out of oxistenco witli a nour
ish of trumpets.
Tho sovon-tonths of ono cent duty por

uproar over this insignificant remnant
of tariff duty is a sample of tho diminu
tive courage nnd conviction of the pres
ent Democratic congress in tho fulfill
ment of its swooping campaign pledges.
Inasmuch, however, as tho twine
business appears to bo within the con
trol of a trust, Tan Rbi'viiucan has
taken tho position that whatever of
tariff protection remains on twine,
however alight, should bo removed. Two
years ago tho Republican senators of
the northwest voted to removo tho duty
on binder twine, nnd it is probable that
they will do so again.
Tho Republican party has removed
about nine-tenths of tho protective du
ties enjoyed by tho sugar trust, and
four-fifths of tho duties enjoyed by ho

binations appear to bo still pushing

and increaso prices. Tho authorities,
under the provisions of tho Republican
anti-trust law, aro now engaged on thef.0
cases. Meantime, the removal of tho
remnants of duty on twine and sugar
may assist in bringing said concerns to
Tho removal of tho sugar duties may

Tho salley of tho Salt liver has been
celebrated for years ns tho fruit belt of
tho southwest, and the fact will' be
readily conceded by nil who hnvo had
experience in tho matter, that tho
fruits of this district aru superior in
flavor to those produced nnywhero else
in the country.
But tho disadvantage under which
tho district has lnbored, up to a very
few years ago, has been in the fact that
only inferior varieties of fruits wero
cultivated here. Tho people of Ari
zona, cut oil ns they were from com
munication with tho rest of the coun
try, and almost completely isolated
from the world, had not tho advantage
of tho progress that had been mado in
fruit culture as well as in everything
else, during the last decade, nnd
coqscquently when the railroad peno
trated this region nnd tho American
immigrant came in, he found tho stand

soon introduced, and the new orchards

small quantity of improved fruit that

sulliclent to show tho favor with which
it is received, and to remove all doubt
of the fact that n fow years hence, when

To illustrato tho importance of thie
