While passing the Pioneer Market
of Mrs. A. Bauer this morning, our at
tention was attracted to the fine array
of mutton and lambs which graced
the market, and enquiry of Mr. Bauer
elicited the fact that .: was Arizona
mutton, raised at Antc-li.je Springs,
in the Sulphur Springs Valley. It
has been a common saying in this
territory that sheep will not do well in
Arizona, mid in fact, the butchers in
their advertisements, always dwell
upon the worJs California niptton. If
any one will take the trouble to visit
tho Pioneer Market they will be as
sured that Arizona mutton, raised at
Antelope Springs, is far superior to
that raised in California. Mr. Bauer
has also some fine fat beef in the shop
that makes one feel like foregoing tur
key in order to get a nice Toast for
Public School ExerciNe.
Last evening we received an invi
tation from Miss Herring, principal of
the public school, to call at half past
one o'clock to-day, which we did.
Upon arriving at the school we were

about two hundred smiling faces in

the school in an excellent manner,

this song tho following program was
Recitation by Rosie Proops which
was well rondcicd, and proved the lit

well rendered, and done the little gen
tleman great credit.
A song by the School was well ren
dered. Recitation by Miss Sophie Jones
evidenced the fact that this little lady
with n little care and training will
make herself known as a leader.
America was well sung by the

and presented Miss Hart, on behalf of
the scholars of her class, with a hand
some of poems. Miss Hart responded
in a feeling manner, and her looks ex
pressed how proud she felt of tho con
fidence and good will of her class.
We cannot close this account with
out according a large meed of praise
to the principal, Miss Herring, for she
surely has a model school, and has the
love and esteem of all her pupils.
