From this copse dark, blue, primeval, silent at most times as when the Great Manitou ruled his inland waters there comes during storms a sound like the booming of an Indian drum. This drum beats, so tradition has' long main tained, whenever the lake takes a life. Men say they have heard and counted the beatings to the exact number of crew and passengers lost in various sinkings of ships. Once only, it is said, has the drum counted wrong. This belief in the drum and a case in which the beat ings failed to tally with the records of men, forms the basis for an absolutely fascinating story of mystery, to be printed as a serial in these columns.

Apache no rain has fallen in the district in the last seven days. In those sec tions where there has been less than a normal amount of precipitation during the spring the range is getting dry and the water supply diminishing. In southwestern New Mexico and southeastern Arizona the drouth continues and in the latter section water as well ?.s feed is being hauled to stock. Grass is drying quite noticably on the northern plateau and cattle are thin. Owing to poor range in early spring the calf crop on the plateau is poor. Conditions continue good in the Pinedale. Prescott, White Riv er and Williams sections. Crop Progress. Pima iotton is developing rapidly; in the earlier planted fields the plants are branching and beginning to assume a bush-like appearance. The rango, Hartsville Delta, and Mebane, are from fair to poor, owing it is thought to the dry condition if the soil during ger mination. In a number of cases farmers have resorted to "irri gating it up" which is usually unsatisfactory. The grain har vest, under most auspicious, conditions progresses rapidly.
