""The Muller-Cammerer breath of promise

the tribulation of Rochester ami Jane Eyre

New York and Mr.
Muller took her to lkHa CAMMUlXn.
his bouse, whore lived his sons. He took her
to concerts, ho walked with her in Central
park, and tbro, sitting on one of the benches,
while the cold, chilly winds of November
wore sighing through tuo lcalles trees, lie
asked her to marry him.
The place and the season wore not propi
tious. When asked on the trial "What did
you talk about in the turkf" Xh Cammerer
replied: "A cold viud voa blowing. We
couldu't liar no animated conversation." She
did not accept him then, but he dangled pres
euta befor-- bar nii'i told her that they would
be hers when she should be his (which was
not giving them at alb, and told her that be
hod a splendid sMOW and would take ber
abroad and all that. What girl without for
tune could resist such pleasures oven with an
aged husband I alias Cammerer consented.
Now, Mr. Rochester Mullor was a ily dog.
He told no lies about an Insane wife living.
he said nothing nbouf her. Nevertheless the
wife existed not In the garret of Mr. Mid
ler's house, for nowadays men don't keep In
sane wires so near. Hhe lived in an asylum.
Miss Cammerer found out about her beforo
Mr. Muller could get ber to tbo altar, and
there waa a delay in the proceeding,. It
might be supposed that this trifling episode

oot open tbm wide enough at all events.

J ne wou. i no spouse tt'imHTcI tne insane

young lady's fatbr called for the paper.
But although Mr. Cammerer contlnned t

to "ingreoan," but the lady held him at arm's

awhile, sbo wrote him:
"Tne thread of circumstances which other

and prosperity ith much respect,
Then MM lover went to see ber, and it waa

Mr. Mnller prom

Rock Island, Feb. 10. We arrived
at Phoenii, Art., Feb. 0. Farming and
fruit raising in tbe desert of Arizona and
New Mexico is tbe question of tbe day in
that section. To reach tbe Salt River
vulli v in southwestern Arizona we went
to El Paso, Texas, where we spent a day
and crossed the Rio Grande river to the
old Mexican town of Poo del Norte.
Here everything is Mexican narrow
streets, old adobe buildings, old Mission
church, said to be three hundred years
old, custom house, garrison of Mexican
soldiers, all very interesting to northern
people who see it for the first time. Here
are larue dry i;oo1h stores with other
lines well represented. The ladies in our
party bad great sport shopping, finding
all kinds of dress goods and fancy arti
cles much cheaper than on our side of
the river. The Mexican merchants in
Del Norte import their goods from Eu
rope froe of duty, and consequently cm
utdersell the El Paso merchants. The
Del Norte dealers do a thriving trade
with their American visitors, and enjoy
I lie custom bouse regulations are
strictly enforced as to smuggling goods
over the line, iut do not interfere with
little articles purchased for persoual use
or as curios.
El Paso and Del Norte are thriving
cities, being the principal gateway to and
from old Mexico. The El Paso people
are looking anxiously for the great R ck
Island road to come their way, and fully
expect to get it. From El Paso to Man
copa. An., is a twelve hours' ride
by rail through a barren desert, noth
ing to see except high mountains
and the giant cacti thirty to forty feet
high looking like huge lamp posts or tel
egraph poles. Thirty miles north of
Maricopa, by rail, brings us to the city of
I'liiH-nix in the famous oalt river valley
which from a desert has blossomed
into a ru-n Farming country with green
Melds of growing grain, rich green
Alfalfa pastures, fruit orchards with
peach trees In blossom, nice bouses, every
thing lively and bustling, everybody
busy, certainly an agreeable change from
the desert onlv a few miles away. The
Salt river valley is fifty miles long, aver
aging nrtecn miles in width and contain
ing two thousand acres of tilable land
watered by four great cunals that take
the water from the Salt river at different
places near tbe head of the valley. The
water is conducted along tbe higher side
of tbe valley which has a slope of about
eight feet to the mile to the lower side.
The surface of tbe valley is smooth as a
bouse floor with just enough slope to
carry the water for Irrigating through the
lateral and sub-lateral ditches without
washing tbe banks. Tbe canals are con
trolled principally by four companies, tbe
Arizona, forty-one miles long, tbe Grand,
twenty-seven miles; Miricopa. twenty
four miles; Salt, twenty-six miles. Tbe
capacity of tbe Arlsona canal is 40.000
mches. Grand. 8,0m Salt and Maricopa.
4,000 each. The canal companies claim
to have enough water to supplv tbe
whole valley excepting when the water Is
very low In the river, when great econ
omy in its use is necessary Tbe canal
companies contemplate building storage
dams In tbe mountains to provide a sup
ply of water against times of drouth.
The land in the valley is owned and
controlled by the Arizona Improve
ment company, and by people wbo
filed on tbe land under the desert
land law. Tbe land is offered for sale
to parties wbo want to improve it
at a very reasonable figure when com
pared with the price of fruit land in
southern California. Tbe nan fruit ami
grapes grown In southern California are
grown here, maturing about four weeks
earlier. An orange orchard we visited
waa growing nicely, showing no trace of
injury by frost. The weather is very
fine days warm, nights cool. For peo
ple wishing to engage in fruit raising and
farming, there is as uooil an opening as
ran be found anywhere, with prospects of
making good money.
The city of Phoenix has a population
of about seven thousand, good hotel,
street iar lines, waterworks, gas, electric
lights, etc. The only thing we missed
was Hello, Central" no telephones
The valley is under the control of wide,
awake, lively northern business men, wbo
are satisfied they have a good thing and
invite investors to come and see for
themselves. It I s wonderful to see what
water will do when scientifically applied
to land, that without it will grow noth
ing but sage brush anil greese wood
Eastern capitalists are Investing heavy
in irrigating cauals in the Rio Grande
and Pacos river val'ey in New Mexico
and all over Arizona, where there are
running rivers of water. With plentv of
water the farmers are sure of a crop. Tbe
great question to be solved is priority of
right in the waters. The first comers
claim the water. It is a question of
great importance to the country and ia
likely to cause litigation and trouble un
less settled by act of congress.
For kind attention while at Phoenix,
we are under obligations to Mr. James
McMillan, superintendent of the Arizona
Canal Co., R. H. Green, merchant, both
from Peoria, III., and M. H. Sberman,
capitalist and old settler of Arizona.

Illlnola mi diettyabara;
How few of your people know of the
splendid fight made by tbe troops from
this state in the great battle. The Eighth
and Twelfth regiments of Illinois cavalry
made at Gettysburg one of the grandest
fiiihis on record, they fought in it u ford's
division, and together with the Eighth
New York cavalry, held in check for
three long hours, the whole of A. P.
Hill's confederate corps, thus giving time
for our Infantry to come up and occupy
the ground. Had those two gallant
commands not have made tbe noble
stand they did, or had they fallen back,
the enemy would have possessed the line
on which we fought and won, and Get
tysburg might not now be known as
union victory. The Eighty. second
Illinois infantry also made a magni
ficent fight and was one of tbe regi
ment that assisted in repelling the
terrific charge of the Louisiana Tigers
on Cemetery hill. At Harper's thea

nage of battle, and we will learn tbe
