BROUGHT TO MESA
MESA, Nov. 26 A couple of days
since, John Nelson, a prominent sheep
man of the Heher country and also a
property owner in Mesa, came down
from his sheep ranch in the Mogollon
mountains, bringing the meat from a
large brown bear recently killed at his
place. While Mr. Nelson and his
brother-in-law, Fred Baca, were on
the range they were suddenly attack

mal w .3 in a savege mood. It was a
very large bear, and looked, probably,
a great deal larger than it really was.
There was some lively moving around
for a few minutes, with the bear the
aggressor, when, finally, Fred Baca
got his firearms, unslung and placed
a bullet in a vital part of Mrs. Bruin's
body.
When skinned the animal was found
to be literally rolling Id fat A sec
tion of pure tallow (or is it lard?) cut
from the back was five inches thick.
Bruin had laid In plenty of fuel for
keeping warm during the hibernating
period.
A portion of the meat and a square
of the tallow is now on display in
the Lesuer & Co. show window, label
ed "Bear Meat from John Nelson's
Sheep Ranch, Heber, Arizona." It has
been a number of years since bear
meat was exposed in the windows of
Mesa stores, as bear have been very
scarce in the mountains of this state.
Bear meat brings to mind other
game foods; and a party of gentlemen,
who were at the Carney mines Thurs
day, brought in samples of venison
"jerky." A short time since a Mexican
workman went hunting in the Supersti
tion mountains and ran ito quite a
bunch of deer. He succeeded in Bhoot

was in splendid order, was a fine,

A LAND OF FRUIT AND

WATER TO AID
THE SUNSHINE
WAS ALL THAT WAS NEEDED TO
BRING ABOUT THIS GREAT
TRANSFORMATION
AND THE HALF HAS NEVER YET
BEEN DREAMED OF THE
GREAT POSSIBILITIES
OF OUR LAND
"Where there is no vision, the peo
ple perish," says the proverb. The
dreamer is the architect of the doer.
No great work was ever wrought ou
but long before it had been a phan
tasy in someone's brain, and doubtless
seemed impractical to those whose
vision was less open.
The dreamer has been at work again
and within the last few days there
has been launched the greatest move
ment for the development of arid
wastes of the Southwest since rec
lamation became an accomplished pol
icy instead of an impractical theory.
It is nothing less than a system by
which flood waters, in the great rivers
of the West are to be gathered up
near the headwaters of those stream
and reservoired, to be let down when
needed for the irrigation of millions
of acres of land 5,000,000 are the fig
ures used with reference to the Colo
rado alone, although we doubt if that
is the limit. But 5,000,000 acres of
fertile desert land for no land is more
fertile than the desert, which has
stored the sunshine of centuries wait
ing for the touch of water to blossom
and produce enormously would mean
50,000 10-acre farms, enough for more
than a million people.
The details of the great plan, from
the engineering standpoint, have not
yet been given out. Long ago The
Examiner dreamed of this use for th
grand canyon of Arizona. Doubtless, it
will bring a protest from those who
have stood in awe of its matchless
colorings and majestic chasm, but how
much more matchless and majestic it
it might be changed so that here
would be stored the water that would
make homes for a million people, and
produce food for other millions be
sides? The system is comprehensive nation-wide.
It is a part of a plan to
prevent floods in the great middle val
leys, with millions in loss, as well as
to store waters in the West, with other
millions in gain. With the credit and
financial resources of the government
behind the plan, it is not only possi
ble, but as good as accomplished.
And perhaps the days is not far distant
when the Mojave desert, along with
other reaches of waste and sand, will
see the same miracle that the Im-

will get the best of care so that they
will be producing a full crop during
all of the exposition year. There is
only one place in' the country where
lemons arc grown successfully at pres
ent; that is, in commercial quantities.
The government has fostered this
industry, and now the home grown
fruit supplies one-half of the entire de
mand of the country. The growers
say that they could grcu, . enough to
supply everyone if they Mid not have
cheap foreign labor to compete with.
As it is, their fruit is said to excel

original two navel trees grown by the

them practically the entire California
orange industry has grown up.
