SOON HAVE MILK AND HONEY.
The Parker Post says:
"Thomas Drennan, of Parker, de
serves the lion's share of the individ
ual honors for the successful passage
of the land bill which bears his name.
It was he who introduced the measure
and also furnished the members of the
congressional committees with the
facts about Parker necessary to secure
their approval. Representative Dren
nan has worked hard to get the bill
through and there will be some few
"thanks, Tom," coming to him, when
he returns tp Parker at the close ol
the session. No, we don't say that all
of Parker's troubles are over. Thert
are some things to be accomplished
yet before Parker alley becomes brim

citizens of Parker do feel that we now
have cause to rejoice since the Carey
act has passed and the greatest ob

overcome. It has been a long wait foi
some of us, and a tiresome one, but
the opening is now in sight. In thret

HON. GJFFORD PINCHOT PUT HIS
STAMP OF APPROVAL ON TH
EFFORTS OF THE PEOPLE.
San Diego, Cal., May 21. (Special
to The Yuma Examiner). Declaring
that the world has had a surfeit of
"commercial" expositions and that all
such do no good, Gifford Pinchot, of
conservation fame, puts his stamp of
approval on San Diego's plan to hold
an "educational" exposition in 1915,
Mr. Pinchot was taken over the
grounds past the nurseries filled with
millions of ferns, plants and flowers
and through the forest of 50,000 grow
ing trees, which will form a back
ground for the scenic attractions of
the exposition. Anything growing in
the soil appeals to Mr. Pinchot; his
towering frame of six feet two will

"I am amazed at the magnitude and

VALLEY IS ESTABLISHING REC
ORD AS HONEY PRODUCING
CENTER OF YUMA COUNTY.
Cibola, Ariz., May 20. If, perchance,
you have heard of Cibola Valley
before we began to publish corres
pondence from this place, no doubt
you learned of it as a honey pro
ducing center, which is a fact. For
among those who know about honey
the Cibola honey is famed for its
goodness and quality. Recently R.
M. Hiatt entered into contract with
R. M. Swain to manage his hives,
numbering about fifty.
The honey census of the valley at
present is as follows: Carl M. Bish
op and J. D. Downs, 225 stands;
R. M. Hiatt, 37 stands; R. M. Hiatt
Bishop, 125 stands; total 437 stands.
Inquiry among the bee men show
that the bees have opened up lively
this spring and with good honey gath
ering conditions this season, the ex
tracting will be heavy. Under or
dinary conditions at least a carload
of honey will be shipped at the close
of the season and if anything like
an excellent season is experienced it
is probable 'that two carloads "will be
sent out. Anticipating the best, the
Messrs. Bishop recently received a
shipment of fifty new hives and su
pers, and more than a hundred ten
gallon cases for the extracted sweets.
RURAL FINANCE IS A
MONETARY COMMISSION GIVING
EXTENSIVE ATTENTION TO
Rural finance is a question of mo
ment to the world. It is proable that
the suggestion o'f Mr. David B. Lubin;
American delegate to the National In
stitute of Agriculture which meets in
Rome in May, that the Southern Com
mercial Congress Commission, should
meet in Rome at the same time,, will
be adopted. It will be recalled that
Representative Norris of Nebraska,
some time ago introduced a bill seek
ing to bring about the adoption of the
Riaffeisen system of rural finance,
and he has urged, inasmuch as the
Monetary Commission has given such
extensive attention to the needs of
commercial and industrial life in the
way of legislation, that the agricul
tural inerests be given similar at

YOU CAN BECOME A MULTI-DE
GREE MASON ON THE RAPID
FIRE PLAN IN YOUR HOME.
San Bernardino, May 21. A clever
swindling game has been uncovered
by local Masons, in which one San
Bernardino man lost about $270 in the
supposition that he was becoming
a multi-degree Mason on a rapid-firt
plan. The organization alleging tc
have its headquarters in Los Angeles
for a consideration, agreed to take t
man through all the degrees of Mas
onry, of a brand that is unknown to
Masonic orders in this city.
The three men said to have been
operating here are T. O. Ashby, J. L.
Farley and Lou F. Staplyton. Th
local men who bit at their scheme
had known one of the trio some time
ago and supposed that he was all h(
represented to be, which incidental!
was a deputy organizer for the Mas
ons, a position, which anyone familial
with the order knows does not exist
He represented that he would organ
ize an order here.
The local man was put through his
degrees in the back room of a hot'
in this city. He gave a check for th
service and the fact that at the bol
torn of each receipt is printed: "1
agree to the above terms," which tlu
victim signs, will prevent crimina"

reported to have been killed last Fri

Hermosillo and Ures, Sonora, near the
latter town, after having been attack

The bride is one of Yuma county's
most popular school teachers of four
terms, and a native of Virginia.
The wedding was in the nature of a
surprise and it all happened thusly:
After;a sumptuous dinner and while
all were talking and joking at about
six o'clock the music of a wedding
march struck up, when the contracting
parties presented themselves before
the judge, who was in the plot, and be

great favorites wherever they ;vc
The many friends of "Ike," as Mr.
Preobstel was best known, think an
explanation is forthcoming as he ap
peared at the uooa Koaa banquet me

matter. Just what action these friends
will take will be best told after it hap

DAINTY HOLDER FOR SPILLS
Ornamental Receptacle of Use in
Households Where Economical
Ways Are Practiced. .
There is, perhaps, no better way of
utilizing old letters or half sheets of
paper than tearing them up and fold
ing them -into spills, -which, are a great
saving of matches; it is necessary to
make some kind of holder for them,
and in our sketch may be seen a
dainty little article of this description.
For making it, a piece of stiff card
board is cut out in the shape shown
in the diagram on the right hand side,
and about 4 inches in width and
inches In height will be found a good
size in which to carry it out The
cardboard is smoothly covered with
silk sewn securely together at the
edges, and then the piece of material
which forms the pocket may next be
sewn in its place; it should be lined
with soft silk. But prior to doing
this, however, the floral design must
be embroidered upon it, and this may
easily be worked from our illustra
tlonor some pretty design might b
The holder Is entirely outlined with
a silk cord of a fancy pattern carried
Into three little loops at the top and
bottom and again on either side.
The holder can be suspended from
a nail in the wall by the center loop
of the silk cord at the top.
DRESSER WITHIN HER RIGHTS
Queen's Attendant Recognized the
Importance of Perfect Dressing
"I hear from an Indian friend that
on one of the journeys of the king
emperor in his 'eastern empire the
train was stopped," said a woman the
other daj. "As no stop was expected,
there was great perturbation and no
little excitement among fussy and
over-anxious offlclals. Some thought
there was danger down the line; oth
ers thought the train might be at
tacked; the word 'bomb' began to be
whispered here and there. Finally all
agitation was calmed by the an
nouncement that the queen-empress
dresser had found it quite impossible
to do her Imperial majesty's hair with
the shaking of the train in motion!
Tho difficulties of that functionary

us who have had maids wrestlipg with

mistresses decently passable, but the
queen-empress had to be turned out.

The use of perfumes is always per
missible, providing one uses a good
quality and just enough to be notice
able. It then gives a dainty finishing
touch to the feminine toilet.
A good recipe for making violet wa
ter is aB follows: Essence of violet,
four ounces; essence of cassis, one
and one-half ounces; essence o!
roses, one and one-half ounces; de
odorized alcohol, two pints.
Salt In some cases will stop the
hair from falling and promote the
growth. Shake the salt through the
hair with a salt shaker and allow to
remain on for five minutes. Do not
rub the hair, but gently brush the salt
out. It is cleansing and will give lus

Six ounces of gum benzoin, four
ounces of cinnamon and the same of
