AMOS ADAMS HAS FOUND GOLD
If today's developments are borne
out by subsequent work, the Big Eye
property, "near Dome, will startle the
world, and Yuma will have another
Wg gold producer.
The Examiner's Information comes
from men who are in a position to
know; In fact, they have seen the
goods, and know the richness of the
ore. The new discovery Is said to
be in the same place where the Big
was supposed to have pinched
oat Experts who recently explored
the property missed it by less than
eight inches. The rich ore was found ,
eight inches from the surface, and de
velopment work is to a depth of 10
feet, where the vein of gold ore Is
two feet wide, and growing wider.
An old miner who saw the ore says
it is the finest rock yet seen in Yuma
county and he continued by saying
that if the owners thought that they
had a mine before, they certainly do
have one now.
This lucky strike in the Big Eye
property Is good news and may prove
a rich Christmas present to Amos
Adams and his backers. .

THE ARIZONA FRUIT
BRINGS GOOD PRICES
Arizona oranges are. selling for 9(
cents a dozen in California. That is
going some, for in the Golden State
, the people are under the impression
, that they are growing the only or

is the best, finest and sweetest to be
found in the whole wide world. For
j years the orange growers of that state
I nave had something of a monopoly
,in the orange markets, and now a

up and take notice.
Not only is Arizona becoming one
of the orange-growing states of the
West, but when he oranges can bring
90 cents per dozen, in the so-called
home of the orange, it is worthy of
notice. The best California oranges
sell in the markets or 35 cents and
40 cents per dozen, and when natives
of that state are willing to pay 90
cents per dozen, it shows that they
consider the Arizona orange superior
to those grown in their own state.

"Peace oh earth, good will to men."
Dear Examiner reader, did you ever
think that in these seven words is
embraced everything and all things
necessary to make' a heaven such as
is described by St John?
No matter what your belief, with
reference to religious doctrine or mor
al ethics, this is true.
It fits the heathen, and there is not
a worshipper of idols on the face of
the earth but who, if possessing any
intelligence whatever, can see a
heaven protruding through it
It fits the atheist, and there is not
one who disbelieves in the existence
of a Divine and Omnipotent Personage
who rules the destinies of the people,
who can speak sven words which
mean as much which can be weaved
into as much for humanity.
It even fits the infidel, who believes
in the existence, of a God, but who dis
believes the Bible. And there is not
an Infidel on earth now, and never has
been, but who must admit that "Peace
on earth, good will to men," embraces
all there could be in any heaven ever
depicted or dreamed of since the
"morning stars sang together."
And transcendant above all others,
it fits the Christian who believes that
somewhere, in some place, there "s
a Divine Spirit who has an incompre
hensible plan for the fulfillment of
all that his creatures could wish in
things that are good, that are wise, I
that are wholesome, that are trans
cendant in beauty and omnipotent in
expanse and grandeur.
If these statements are true (and
to dispute them is to contradict the
logic of language, regardless of be
liefs) Christmas, the day recognized
by the Christian world "as the anni
versary of the birth of Jesus Christ,
is the day of all days for the human
race, for the phrase was born at the
same time The Christ was 'born, al
though not uttered until He was in
a position to impress the world with
the glory and grandeur of a Redeem
er. The birth of the nhrase. however.
is the most significant part of it
the sublimity of its meaning the in-1
spiration of Its thought the permeat
ing influence of its 'purport to hu
manity and world-wide inspiration to
the hearts of men is what counts for
time and eternity.

A large number of the members
were present to jsnjoy the hospitality
of the hostess. Delicious refresh

at this meeting, that the club should
give their dance on St .Valentine's
evening; February 14, 1913.
Upon Interviewing Mayor Shanssey"
and Mr. Verdugo, who had charge
of the street work of the city, the
club feels more than encouraged to
proceed with their ball. The amount
raised, by. this work will be used for
placing signs on the streets, giving
the names of each. This will illl a
long-felt want, not only for tourists,
but old-time residents are sometimes
puzzled in trying to find "'certain
streets, only the ones most prominent"
and close in being distinguished by
names familiar enough to be located
The club asks the earnest assist-
ande of young and old and feels sure
it will receive said assistance.

STEPHEN F. POWER,
FEMININE PATRIOTS OF PERSIA
The part played by the new woman '
in Persia's national crisis, during re-'
cent years, is no less significant than1
that enacted by their Turkish sisters.'
When the constitution was given to
the people of Iran, the progressive
women of the land of Omar went into
ecstasies over it. Some of them
wrote hallelujahs congratulating the
nation upon securing a more liberal
form of government, and expressed
the desire to take part in the demon
strations that celebrated the assem
bling of the first parliament at Te
heran. Subsequently, when Mohammed Ali
sought to crush out the liberties of
his subjects and plunged them into
a civil war, some of the women as
sisted the revolution by contributing
to its exchequer the money secured
by selling their personal jewels and
ornaments; and lent their aid to their
mutinous menfolk by transmitting po
litical documents through the medium
of the women relations of other lead
ers who passed them on to their rela
tives of the opposite sex, thus form
ing a sort of subtle endless chain of
communication which defied detection.
A few even went the length of demon
strating their love or freedom by ac
tually donning masculine attire, Join
ing the ranks of the soldiers, and tak
ing part in the fighting.
Some of the public-spirited women
of the Shah's domain sought to dis
suade the statesmen from fastening j
the Incubus of foreign loans upon the
, country, and helped them In their eng
deavor to prevent the tide of Rue-
I slan aggression from submerging
their country. One of their many ef
forts in this connection took the form
of a demonstration in the Mejlis or
parliament Scores of ladies emerg
ed from the shadowy seclusion of the
harems that had sheltered thm
throughout their existence from con
tact with the work-a-day worldv and
marched in a bo'dy to the parliament
house. Arrived there, they insisted
upon being given a hearing by the rep
resentatives of the nation. Their
faces were veiled in the orthodox
style, but the eyes that gazed upon
the unfamiliar scene flashed fire.
Realizing that he had to deal with
an unusually delicate situation, the
President diplomatically decided to
receive the deputation. Thereupon
the ladies dramatically proceeded to
impress the members of Parliament
with the necessity of -presenting a bold
from to Slav encroachment, not hesi
tating, it is' stated by responsible atr
thoritIes, to flourish revolvers and
vow to take the lives of their husbands
and sons and kill themselves if their
petition was ignored.
The Persian women have been equal
ly helpful in constructive work. Mr.
Morgan Shuster relates in his. recent
ly published work, "The Strangling of
Persia," that a woman volunteered to
furnish him certain figuresT which
were badly needed by the Finance De
partment, of which he then wag the
head, which no one else could give.
Although she endangered ; her own
life and fortune as well as that of
her family by her act, she readily gave
aid to the government Other femin
ine patriots of Iran have set them
selves to work to educate girls and
young women and inspire them to
fight for the preservation of national
entity and the advancement of eman
cipation. From "The New Woman in
the Mohammedan World," by Saint
