R OPPOSITE CITY HALL ABOUT FRUIT. Interesting Figures From a Verde Apple Orchard. Fifteen Trees Yield a Net Profit of Nearly Fifty Dollars to Each Tree. The chamber of commerce display received an addition yesterday in the ahape of several apples from a ranch on j the Verde. They are of the Ben Davis and Greening varieties and in the mat ters of size, flavor and color are fully equal to Bimilar varieties from the or chards of Michigan and northern New York and Pennsylvania, the supposed best regions for the growth of apples. These Bamples do not it is true repre sent the possibilities of the valley as most of the other fruits on display do yet they come from a tributary region. The growth of this particular branch of fruit raising in the regions adapted to it may become as important to Phoenix as any of the other important indus tries, most of which may yet be said to be only partially deyeloped. These appleB came from an orchard of fifteen trees- They were planted with out any special care and are in a lo cality where water is ecare. They have never received any irrigation for them selves alone but sometimes after the irrigation of an adjoining alfalfa field, if there was any water left it was turned into the orchard. The result however in the way of profit to the owner has been astonish ing. Last year the entire crop was readily sold in adjacent mining camps at 12 cents a pound and the miners re garded the price as so low that the apple grower was considered a public benefactor. The orchard netted him $700, or $46.663 to each tree. Not taking into account the cost of the original plant ing, which was trifling, these figures are offset by no item of expense. The owner gathered the crop himself, and it was put into an eager market with out any other tariff on the traffic than the cost of axle grease and the wear and tear on his wagon. Apples have been successfully raised in the valley, yet the crop is by no means sure and the fruit lacks that ex quisite flavor which can be acquired only in higher latitudes or altitudes. It is necessary that the - apple tree be submitted to at least a slight freezing process. Another contribution to the chamber of commerce display were a dozen peaches by Mrs. W. M. Thomas. They are of the late Thistle variety, and each peach is as big as a big teacup. Charles Williams also brought in a lot or very nne pomegranates. Secretary Perley, of the chamber, is engaged in preparing an elaborate dis- ' play of raisins and dried apricots. They are being arranged in glass cases. The Jury Out. Cakson, Nev., Sept. 26.

Whenever you say: "This is a splen did season" to the Boston Journal's snake editor, he shakes his head sor rowfully and remarks: "Not a bit of it. It's the worst season on record." "Why, didn't you see the other day that rattlesnakes had appeared at Exeter, N. H.?" he was asked by an in quirer. "What of that?" was the reply. "Would you consider that that was worth being compared with the story from the west about the man who went down into an abandoned mine and killed one hundred and thirty three rattlesnakes, drank a quart of whisky and earned one hundred dollars in less than an hour?" And the snake editor's eyes fairly glistened at the thought "of the ad venture. "Don't you remember the eight-foot snake found out at the Back Bay?" "What is an eight-foot snake in Bos ton to be compared with the big ser pent stories coming from other parts of the country. There was the boa con strictor who escaped from a cage and hid in a sewer." "Oh, that was old." , "No; that happened in Washington, and is vouched for. Then there was the duel between two jealous boa con strictors in a Brazilian forest, and the two different stories abont men barely escaping being swallowed by pythons, and the educated black snake which milked a cow, and the man who caught eight ground hogs and was attacked by black snakes and had to throw the ani mals away to appease the reptiles." This was a long sentence and the snake editor had to pause for breath, but before the questioner could get in a query, he resumed the catalogue. Then there was the reappearance of the sea serpent in the Pacific ocean, and the man who eats rattlesnakes in preference to spring chickens, and the snake charmer who was being photo graphed with his pets, when they went on a strike and demolished the estab lishment. I had almost forgotten the two cases of people on the California coast who were seized by shall I say ocotpuses or octopi? and almost killed. No, this has been a splendid season for snake stories in every section of the country but New England, and it is enough to drive an enterprising snake editor west, where there is something to do. New England isn't in it." And with that the disheartened snake editor mournfully wended his way to ward a place where he could go in training for seeing snakes as much as he liked. LONG-LIVED RUSSIANS. Some of Them Rieach the Age of Six Score and Five. It has long been a well-established fact that abnormal longevity is more common among the Russians than among any other of the European na tions, says the London News. From an official report collated from well authenticated local registers, it now appears that the government of Kieff takes the first place of all Russian provinces in this respect. Buring last year, it is officially stated, there Were fourteen centenarian deaths registered in that government. In the city of Kieff one man died aged 110 years, while within the suburban circle two women died aged respectively 102 and 104 years. In Berditcheff two men reached the respective ages of 101 and 114 years. In Vassilkoff another patriarch died in his 115th year. In the same district there died a Jewess aged 105; in Svenigorod ka, a man of 110 years; in Tarastcsha, another of 105; in Uman, two men aged respectively 106 and 102 years; in Rado mytzel, a Jew agad 107 and a Christian aged 103; and lastly, a man of 105 years died at Tcherkassy. Here are fourteen persons, dying within the same year and within the limits of one district, whose united ages amount to 1,489 years. According to the Saratoff journals there is still living in that government an ancient veteran of the First Napoleon army, formerly Lieut. Savin, and since 1812 known as Nicolai Alexandrovitch Savin, who has celebrated 126 birthdays. NATURAL HISTORY WONDERS. The greyhound runs by sight only. Many birds seem to have a correct notion of a gun's range, and are scru pulously careful to keep beyond it. Theee is a species of ant, known as the black or negro ant, which is taken in battle by other ants to be made slaves. It is conjectured that the carrier pigeon flies his hundreds of miles homeward by eyesight, noting from point to point objects that he has marked. NUMBER NINE IN MYTHOLOGY. What a German Professor Hag to Say of Three Times Three. It is not often that a single figure has enjoyed the distinction of being, the subject of long study and investi gation on the part of a German univer sity professor. But "The Nuraber Nine" is the title of a long and learned article in a recent edition of "Am Ur quell," by Prof. Reinhold, at present rector of the University of Berlin. "In early times," writes the professor, "the first uneven number (3) and its mul tiple (9) were considered of especial importance, likewise all numbers which contained 9. Heathen philoso phers, or Christian mystic writers, the legends of nations, the religions of modern peoples, all go to prove the holiness or sanctity of the number 9. In ancient Germanic life, in poetry, in religion and law, the number 9 is met everywhere. It still has its influence in German customs and German belief. In the Scandinavian mythology we find groups of nine walkyries, nine dises, nine giant mermaids or women of the sea, nine mothers of the god Ileimdell. nine virgins of the Menglod-Freyja and nine dwarfs. In the middle ages nine heroes were usually grouped together, as is to be seen on the beautiful foun tain at Nuremburg and the Hanse salon of the Cologne city hall. In the poetry of the fifteenth century groups of nine are favored. Proofs of this are to be found in the festival plays, Nos. 3S and 47 of the Keller collection, and in the poem: 'The Nine Poor Wander ers' of Hans Sachs. There were nine judges in Icelandic and Germanic law, known as 'the nines.' In Lucerne there existed until 1795 the nine men who sat in judgment on ordinary police cases. Nine children were formerly looked on as the ideal number for a family Even animals are named in old tales in groups of nine. In a German fairy tale nine birds quarrel over the wishing clock. They say in Tysol: 'When nine parents meet there is a witch among them.' We also find nine a favored number for those people who make a sacrifice of human 'beings and animals." HOLD ON, BOYS. Hold on to virtue it is above all price to you, in all times and places. Hold on to your good character, for it .is, and ever will be, your best wealth. Hold on to truth, for it will serve well, and do you good throughout eternity. Hold on to your temper when you are angry, excited, or imposed upon, or others angry about you. Hold on to your tongue when you are just ready . to swear, lie, or speak harshly or use an improper word. Hold on to pour good name at all times, for it is much more valuable to you than gold, high place or fashion able attire. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder World's Fair Hiahes Medal and Diploma.
