One cause of blight in fruit orchards
is a lack of thorough underdrawing It
is seldom that an orchard which is well
cultivated andundordrained suffers from
blight

the fields in the fall is doubtless a good

It scarcely pays to whitewash fruit

Pears are better when harvested bo

Thoy should bs picked and allowed to

The experience of all fruit growers is
that it pays to cultivato young orchards
The trees become thriftier bear sooner

period when the young trees are grow

the soil they need and must have proper
nouiishment After thoy have in a
measure attained their growth the cul
tivation should cease in order that they
may ripen their wood It has been
observed that more trees die each winter
in hard uncultivated soil than in one
which has been cultivated

HE SAW TOO MUCH
iV Tall MnnH ICeinurkalilo Experience
Working the IMpe
Tho tall gaunt man took his seat in
tho street car and turning to tho
ministerial passenger three seals away
announced in a loud voico that he had
passed through a remarkable experience
Indeed remarked tho ministerial
passenger with an attempt to look in
terested May I ask you what it was
Certainly I thought you would
want to know That was why I ad
dressed you I have been working the
pipe
Working the pipe
Yes having an opium debauch If
you want a now experience try the pipe
It is beastly but novel I had an opium
dream that made my hair turn short in
an hour I thought I was being led
through an enchanted valley by a veiled
lady and a hideous Chinaman The
ground was paved with gold emeralds
and rabies the trees bore silver fruit
and tho branches resembled icicles of
fantastic form There wero banks of
chocolate ice cream and hillocks of
pies cakes and puddings rope at inter
vals upon either side whilo every few
yards we passed fountains that spouted
forth stieams of beer and lemonade
Oh how dreadful exclaimed a
horror stricken passenger
Very dreadful replied the tall
gaunt man with a smile of approval
We didnt drink The veiled ladyand
the hideous Chinaman next conducted
me to the foot of the endless ladder up
which we climbed for seven hours finally
stepping off into a forest the trees of
which grow to an astonishing height
Upon the top of each was an elephant
and every bright particular beast held
in his trunk a portrait of my puppy love
The woods wero filled with a soft sweet
melody hut as we proceeded dark
deep holes or pits began to appear all
about us from which flames of fire and
volumes ofmilphurousi smoke arose and
at intervals of a few seconds hands
feet and distorted countenances were
thrust at m and guttural oaths and
foul epithets could he heard I told my
attendants that I was tired and wished
to rest We sat down upon a bench
which immediately arose to a height
of ten miles when it began falling at a
terrific rate of speed Our descent was
made pleasant by innumerable owls
with red wings and eagles with mon
keys heads flying about us cracking
jokes and repeating the shorter cate
chism When wo reached terra firma
it turned out to bo an Island in midocean
a barien rock inhabited by snakes
lizards and ducks Each of the latter
played upon a Jews harp whilo the
snakes brought us biscuits and cheese
which they held in their forked tails
At tins point I went to sleepHuul when
I awoko found myself astride of a horse
which could talk The animal informed
me that his name was Bucephalus
After traveling a long distance we
came in sight of an immence crowd of
people animals and reptiles perhaps
10000 of all kinds and creeds
In tho first group wo came to were
Napoleon Bonaparte Senator Lapham
Prince Bismarck and Perry Carson
who were engaged in a social game of
draw with a copy of Schencks rules on
the ground near by The next personage
was the queen of Lngland on a bicycle
riding around amidst the crowd trying
to pass a silver quarter which had been
perforated A score or more of Sicilian
barbers wero lathering and scraping the
bones of the people who wero murdered
during the mascscieof St Bartholomew
At this moment my horse turned to a
snow flake and melted away before my
eyes and I mingled with the throng I
saw Christians reading the Koran
Mahommedans talking about the tele
phone saw monks training for the prizo
ring women playing base ball ostriches
smoking Havana cigars geese playing
checkers mules running sewing machines
cowboys holing cabbages preachers
pulling teeth Quakers dancing brick
masons sawing wood Indians compiling
dictionaries Esquimaux playing on a
piano flees eating oysters spotted men
and pink colored children munching
sawdust horses fighting duels goats
wearing New Market jerseys frogs
throwing dice gamblers praying jack
knives dancing jigs editors writing Eng

thud and tho passengers voted flic

PEACH SPRINGS MOHAVE COUNTY A T SATURDAY NOVEMBER 3 1883
ACCOUNTING FOR MANY THINGS
Yes sir remarked the tramp
emptying his glass and looking around
with a smile I have no doubt the
President took trout out of a stream
and flung them into a geyser to cook
them It sounds like a big story and
tho description of tho fact might have
been written by tho poet Rogers of the
last Administration who I understand
accompanies the Presidential party but
I am remarking gentlemen that bigger
tilings in the same line have been done
right in that neck o the woods 4
Under your personal observation
inquired tho gentleman in glasses
Under the same answered the
bald headed man taking the reply out
of the tramps mouth Ive done the
same thing myself right wliero he is
now only I held the fish tail foremost
toward a blizzard to scale em first
Thats business assented the
tramp with a smile of encouragement
Tho way we used to do was to scale
em with a blizzard as you did and then
hold em between the Indians and us
for a moment to let an arrow cut em
and cloan em
A very good idea conceded the
bald headed man We used to do that
with prairie chickens hut wo never tried
it on fish Our way was to turn the fish
inside out and boil em in a geyser and
then turn em hack again It didnt
spoil tho outside appearance of the
fish
We tried that until we found that
the fish was better done inside than
out remarked the tramp And then
he gave it up Our favorite way was to
boil em w ithout cleaning and then to
let a hailstone run through em They
came out as sweet as a nut
I dont think much of the hailstone
racket observed the bald headed man
with some contempt I tried it once
with a hundred pound salmon and
when the stone got through there wasnt
enough salmon left to make a kdly
fish
Did you ever try a streak o light
ning lor cleaning tish asked the
tramp
Only once replied the bald headed
man And the fish got stale beforo we
could get the clap of thunder out of it
Our greatest dodge was to hang the fish
up on a stage route and let the road
agents go through it That used to
clean it pretty well
Speaking of geysers continued the
tramp with a pleasant smilo I started
them geysers in the Yellowstone Park
May I ask how inquired the man
in glasses
Them geysers are nothing but holes
in tho ice I dug one winter catching
eels 1 caught over 1 000000 eels that
season and I pulled them up so fast
that the water followed and kept run
ning like a syphon ever sinco
But how do you account for the
water being so hot asked tho man in
glasses
Friction exclaimed tho tramp
I pulled them eels up so lively that
the friction of my line set tho water on
fire and one time I was nearly scalded
to death with the steam I say you
see that man going out that door and
ho pointed to the departing bald headed
man That man aims to bo a bigger
bar than that man who is following the
President around but he cout fetch it
Ho hasnt the talent Look here Im
going out with the next Presidential
party and if you want my influence to
get in with the gang all youve got to
do is to set em up now while I feel in
the humor for a snifter or else you will
stay at homo and hear that bald headed
snipe get off his same lies while I am
coining a reputation that may lead me
to a cabinet oflico tinder the next ad
ministration Youhearme
And tho man in glasses was not proof
against the threat Ho has read and
heard enough to believe that anything
is possible in a Presidential party
The Consumption op Gold The con
sumption of gold for other than mone
tary purposes in Europe America and
Australia has more than quadrupled in
thirty years and has quite trebled in
twenty years It is more than five times
what it was half a century go The
great mass of gold which has flowed
from the mines has been absorbed in
tho Biimo opulence and luxury of tho
times which have swallowed up the
flood of gems great in volume beyond
any former precedent from the diamond-fields
of South Africa and in
creasing prices will be quito as likely
to whet the appetito of Iwtli as to
check it Five sixths of the current
production of gold is absorbud in the arts
and manufactures in the Western world
and in British India A part of the re
maining sixth is lost in the wear of
coins and by fires shipwrecks and
forgotten hoards What is left to in
creaso the stock of gold money in pro
portion to tho increase of population
exchanges and wealth of tho world

BLUE LANDS
A View that
Cburm Like
Dream
n Heantlful
I have several times in my letters re
ferred to the clearness of the
phere over the grand lakes aud es
pecially Superior and here I can give
an illustration of it At 11 a m we
steam out by Thunder Cape At 7 p
m we are fully eighty miles to the east
as far to the south of Sick Minister
rock and fully ninety miles from La
Pate It is doubtless a rare day even
for that lovely climate With not a
cloud to catch the sunlight the sky is
almost colorless and one can gaze up
there until he hears the music of the
spheres The weather is so clear that
the bubbles around the lwttom of the
fanUii under the stern show as white
almost as snow through eight feet of
water and where the surface is un
broken you seem to be gazing upon the
curtain of night that by some accident
have fallen from their fixtures above
There is so little in the water to reflect
light that sunbeams sink and give no
farewell gleam Away on our right
hand the great hills of Keweenaw on
the south shore are clearly outlined
against the sky fully fifty miles distant
Isle Royale Fire Island now Beaufort
and Thunder Cape to the west and the
dyspeptic Knob to the north are still
clearly defined Standing on the hurri
cane deck as the sun goes down in a
gleam of gold I can see over a circle
that must le nearly GOO miles in cir
cumference In the far distance the
land is robed in a color as rare as the
blue of a handsome eye The whole
vision is as charming as a beautiful
dream There is nothing like it on tho
New England coast I have seen the
White Mountains farther but they dont
show the same exquisitescoloring It is
like the glimpe one gets of the mount
ains from afar off on the plains and
the land seems much higher than it
really is owing to the clearness with
which it can be seen On the whole I
do not wonder that the savages were
superstitious regarding this lake and its
surroundings It were easy for one
disposed to commune with nature to
find up here along this crystal sea and
among these heautful hills a land of
God and a home of the soul Corre

THE KIND OF A COURT RUSSIAN BILL
WAS
His looks would have attracted atten
tion anywhere but dresed in the fancy
cowboy garb he was particularly no
ticeable His clearly cut features long
drooping mustache and curly blonde
hair which fell in curls on his shoulders
made Russian Bill an object of special
interest to strangers Three yoars ago
when tho writer first saw him Russian
Bill was known through southwestern
New Mexico as one of the Sam Simon
rustlers a gang of thirty or forty out
laws that made ieriodical raids through
Western Arizona Northern Mexico and
Southern New Mexico stealing cattle
and horses and driving them to the San
Simon Valley where they wero kept
until an opportunity offered itself to dis
pose of them Russian Bill was a man
of good education he spoke four lan
guages fluently and delighted when
ever opportunity offered in discussing
literature science or art Of his past
nothing was known save that he was
from Russia His reputation was not
that of a had man but of being a
braggart whose heart was really kind
and whose courage was doubtful
About two years ago the residents of
Sbakspeare N M resolved to freo
themselves from the rough element that
had for a long time ruled that place The
next morning twelve men were asked to
leave and when Russian Bill arrived in
town a couple of days later accompanied
by another rustler named Sandy King
the citizens decided that the two mon
should die as an example to their com
panions in crime Accordingly at
about midnight a dozen men entered
the room of the Stratford Hotel occupied
by the rustlers Before Sandy King
and Russian Bill could offer any resist
ance thoy were tied securely ropes wero
thrown over the beam above their beds
and they were pulled up and left liang
ing until they were dead The next morn
ing a coroners jury held an inquest and
brought in a verdict that the men com
mitted suicide by hanging
A short time ago the sheriff of Grant
county N M received a letter from
tho American Consul at St Petersburg
saying that the Countess Tclfuin was
very anxious to learn the whereabouta
of her son who had been banished for
political reasons but who possessed
large estates Tho letter inclosed a
photograph of Russian Bill Word was
sent that the Count had committed
suicide at Shakespeare two years ago
and the true facta were kept from the
knowledge of his mother New York
Times
Dr Al Watta says the pug dog never
bites Wo dont see why he should
He is ieltcd and coddled as if he were a

most reason to bite but ho is mainly on
the lookout for a bite of something to
eat
