Major P..we,'l announces an osti
mate that is everywhere regarded a
conservative, that the irrigable land of
tho Central West, now wholly lurrcn.
will make eight states like Indiana,
and Colonel Hinton, an expert nf the
survey, estimates that twenty acres of
thw land, cultivated under irrigation,
will prod une as much as one hundred

Arizona is now like California was
in 1850, going through a stage of de
velopment and experiment whioh is
showing, not only to the people who
have, in charge the duty imposed upon
them, but to the outside world that
the future of our territory, like Cali
fornia does not depend upon our min
eral wealth to create out ,of our pres
ent dormant condition, a busy, aolive,
and wealthy section of the United
A peacoful victory has been declared
at Pine Ridge. It will be barren of
good results a long as a Sioux brave
is allowed to pack a gun.
-m A squib is going tho rounds of the
press to the effect that the California
poppy which has been chosen as a state
emblem, was introduced by Chinamen.
This is not true; the plant is indige
nous to California and specimens of it
and seedf were sent home to the east by
pioneers of 1848, at which time it was
as abundant as now, in fact more so,
for in somo parti of Southern Califor
nia it has almost been exterminated
by the collections of tourists.
Overone-half of the area of Arizona
has been recorded as grazing land.
The grazing land is all fit for cultiva
tion were it but supplied with water for
iirigating purposes. Coobise county
contains an area of nearly C000 square
miles or 3,840,000 acres. Of this area
fully 1,500,000 is adapted to the raising
of all kinds of fruits, vegetables and
produce. This land would, if cut up
into 160 acre tracts, mako 9375 farms
and support that number of families
or a population of at least 28,000 souls.
WHAT IS IT?
The Influence that Sometimes Guides ni
Against Our Will.
"No. I do not believe in ghosts," said
an old lady of great experience; '-but I
do believe In the ministration of spirits."
This is not the ape, nor the country, in
which the supernatural flourishes. In
terest centres about the practical.
Haunted houses are rented without great
difficulty, if the landlord is willing to
knock off a portion of the rent.
There are many, however, who will
admit the exertion, at times, of some
peculiar influence, swaying oar actions.
We are led to do things we should not do
of our own volition the,wisdom of which
we do not appreciate until afterwards;
then we wonder how we came to do them.
We are force! to learn that worldly wis
dom is not always that which guides into
the wisest courses.
In this practical ago results are what
people are looking after, They believe in
what they see ; the ''evidence of things
not seen" is to be weighed in the future.
When a man is sick he wants to get well ;
he cares little what medical method is
employed if it cures. But if it does not
cure he soon begins to doubt tho skill of
the physician, and inquire, rato his meth
ods of medication. A happy thing it is,
sometimes, if somo influence induces in
vestigation before it is too late.
W. O. Higgins, 65 Ferry street, Fair
Haven, Conn., writes, June 30, 18')0 :
" One year ago I was taken with terrible
pains In tey side and back, suffering
more than pen can describe. I am con
fident that no one suffered" more and
lived. I tried several physicians, who
informed me I had a bad case of kidney
and liver trouble, and could not live.
At this time a friend of mine urged me
to try Warrior's Safo Cure ; after using
only four bottles of the Safe Cure and
two boxes nf H$i& Fills, I am to-day a
well and sound man, nearing my sixti
eth year. I am foreman in tho Fair
Haven Clock Works, and will verify this
statement at.any time."
The Reno Gazette protests against
Dr. Bitthop's boys using eggs to pelt
tho asylum pationts with, when they
are worth four bits a dozen, and would
suergost that they use potatoes, for
which the state is only paying twelve
and a half cents per 100 pounds.
A prominent conservative of this
city states tho waters of Lake Texcoco
contain immense quantities of salts of
soda, and that many people are em
ployed daily in its extraction. It ha
been, caicutaieu, qays ,pur,coi)iempora
ry, that these salts are worth at least
threo hundred millions of dollars, as
distributed around on the surface; and
that thii amount will be increased to
one thousand livo hundred millions of
dollars, by "excavating the bed of the
liiko to a depth of fivo or six meters.
Where those calculations have been
obtained, we are nut told, but if they
can bo substantiated, who then will
venture to say tnoro are no riches right
at our very door;.' Two Republics

'Some day an enormous amount of

South West in copper is tery far from
being confined to one district. In
Southwestern Arizona there are vast
deposits of copper, some of which is al

n was an appeal
from the supreme court of Utah. Tho
question involved in this suit was
whether or not a son by a polygamous
marriago lias the right of inheritance
from his father it being claimed that
he was an illegitimate child, and there
fore not entitled to a share in the dis
tribution of his fathei's estate. The
court in its opinion holds that the son
by a polygamous marriage did have
this riht and reverses the judgment
of the territorial court. Tho court
discusred tho Edmunds and the Ed
munds-Tucker anti-polygamy acts, and
said the latter act declared legi
timate all children of Mormon parents
born within less than twelve months
from its passage. The object, tho court
said, was to make these unfortunate
children an especial object of care, and
o make the parents relinquish poly
gamy by fixing a period until after
which their offspring should be legiti

Kansas City. The cause of the

months. A rumor gaimd currency

The withdrawal of depoeits followed
immediately and with the growth of
unfavorable reports, ihe withdrawals
increased to an alarming extent. The
bank is legally entitled to sixty days
notice before being required to pay
time depositors, but all depositors
have and will be paid in full on pre
sentation. There will be a saving of
$20,000 to the bank in accrued interest
which depositors have forfeited. No
statement of the amount of assets and
liabilities of the bank has been made.
The assets are estimated at $2,250,000;
