Hats off to E. F. Sanguinetti when it
comes" to souvenirs, especially when
advertising Yuma and its wonderful
possibilities are concerned.
No private citizen in Yuma has ever
shown more unselfish enthusiasm in
connection with the success of the
Reclamation Service than has Mr- E.
P. Sanguinetti. Long before the great
siphon tunnel under the Colorado river
was completed, and before it was even
v a reality, and at the time the first
$' photograph was taken of the interior
r view of the shaft, he went to work
upon the souvenirs to distribute to
his many patrons and friends upon the
celebration of the completion of this
The siphon was the only thing thai
stood between hundreds of farmer?
and success, and "for j months ai'l
months the siphon was on the lips ol
every man, woman and child in Yu
r . ma Valley.
At that time, the thought struck Mr.
Sanguinetti "Why wouldn't a picture
of the siphon tunnel, reproduced upon
metal, made into some useful article,
make a new souvenir?"
Excellent! No sooner said than done
Plans were made and submitted, ac
cepted and contract awarded for a
large number of watch fobs, having
... for the charm a medallion of oxidized
silver, 1 inches in diameter, with a
.. . perfect reproduction of the first pic
ture taken of the tunnel in the cen
ter, and the superscription "Yuma
Project, finished June, 1912 Siphon
under the Colorado river,"" and on the
reverse side, "Compliments of E. F.
Sanguinetti." This makes one of the
neatest" and most useful souvenirs any
man or woman would like to own.
SCENES OF YUMA VALLEY, AND
PRODUCTS GROWN THERE,
The show at the Zeller theatre last
night, given under the auspices of the
Commercial Club, was attended by an
overflowing house. No such crowd has
ever packed into this building as greet
ed the pictures of scenes in the Yuma
Valley, which were thrown upbn the
canvass. The show is one of the best
and most instructive that has evep
leen seen in Yuma and presents a
concrete advertisement of the Yuma
project products and scenery which
cannot be seen elsewhere.
Director E. S. Kirkpatrick, of the
Commercial Club, announced the pic
tures and delivered a brief description
of each as it was thrown upon the can
vas. No more enthusiastic crowd has
ever witnessed a picture show in Yu
ma than witnessed the Commercial
Club's show last night.

ARIZONA'S EXHIBIT CARRIED OFF OVER FORTY WORLD AWARDS
FOR EXCELLENCE OF DRY FARM PRODUCTS AT LETHBRIDGE,
ALBERTA, CANADA, AT THE INTERNATIONAL DRY FARMING
CONGRESS YAVAPAI COUNTY WON TWELVE BLUE RIBBONS.
Arizona's exhibit carried off over
forty world awards for the excellence
of dry farm products at Lethbridge,
Alberta, Canada, at the International
Dry Farming Congress.
The exhibit consisted of 150 entries
gathered from the several counties in
the state, in which dry farming is
practicable. The Arizona car was
shipped very early, owing to the great
distance from the exhibition city, and
when it was unloaded more than half
the exhibits were unfit for competi
tion, owing to the sprouting and mil
dew. Apples and peaches grown in Yava
pai county mountain orchards, at al
titudes averaging -a mile, won ten
blue ribbons, in competition with the
fruits of the Wenatchee, Hood Rivor,
Spokane and Yakima districts. The
magic wand with the "?" sign on the
end of it, is caused to flow with its
life-giving waters down through the
rich Yuma Valley, bringing wealth
and prosperity to its farmers.

At a meeting of the Arizona Com

Quarantine order No. 5 relates to

California. This order prohibits the
importation into the state of Arizona
of all rooted grape vines from Califor

Bernardino, Kern and San Louis Obis
po counties. Grape cuttings may be
released by Arizona crop inspectors
only after treatment by means of hot
water to destroy the winter eggs of
the phylloxera, should any be pres
