of every farmer on Yuma project and
throughout the county, as well as in
the hands of every housewife in

"practically everything raised, grown
or made that one can think of, even
including 21 prizes for babies up to
3 years .old. All you parents, there
fore, who possess "the sweetest and
prettiest baby in all the world," have
the chance of a lifetime to find out
how ;good your judgment is on this
- particular-- question. Get one of the
" premium .books and find what class
your baby is eligible to enter, and
then get ready to put Yuma on the
' map, not only as the best county in

prettiest and sweetest babies in all
.. the world.
v .Yuma county is full of 'em, for I
have seen many of them with my own
yes and have been within two or
vj. three blocks of otheTs for I have
heard them more than. once. Go after
-some of that "easy money"!
' But it's a certainty all of you can't

Yuma, who would be regarded as prize
, winners anywhere in the world, there
..' fore begin to fatten up your pigs
;Toth old and young, for there are
something like 50 chances to win in
.-this department, embracing every
.. specie of hog (with four legs) known
' in the markets of Arizona.
According to the recent annual re
. port of the U. S. Agricultural depart
ment, Arizona has made greater
strides in hog raising during the past
year than any state in the Union, and
theer is absolutely no reason in 'the
world why Yuma county shouldn't
win at least half of all the. prizes of
fered in this department.
Substantial cash prizes are offered
for horses, cattle, sheep, goats and
all kinds of fancy and pet stock, ajid
Yuma county can furnish several car
loads that should come back home
decorated with blue ribbons and 'gold
jingling in their owners' pockets.
Of greatest interest, however, to the

good housewife in the long list of the
cash prizes offered for everything in
the cooking and preserving line,
cakes and pies "just like mother used
to make" (and it makes my mouth

'will be as easy for the good house
wife of Yuma as itv would be for the
' present city council to pass a dupji

just make the effort. Get in touch

ESI VILLA REVERSES
(By Benjamin Franklin Fly)
The Carranza wave, started the day
after the recent Peace Conference,
seems to have shot its bolt.
As pointed out in these columns,
the past few days an entirely errone
ous impression has been spread broad-'
cast by Carranza agents that the Villa
troops were disintergating and form
ing into bands of bandits.
As a matter of fact, these bands, of
cattle thieves, assassins and murders
have all been traced direct to Car
ranza army camps, and it is to sup
press 'them that Villa is now sending
a strong body of well-trained soldiers
to reinforce Governor-General Mayiu
rena. of Sonora. Late, reports indicate
that, Maytorena already has General
Calles on the run. Villa is expected.
