The registration of voters for the city election has begun. There sfems to be plentv of time in which to register, but it is a safe bet that there will be a hundred electors in the corporation who will find themselves shut out for want of time. Alas for the dilatoriness of mankind. The registration closes fifteen days before election which oc curs on the first Tuesday in May.

The Cal houn Opera company is One of the most popular organizations in the country and probably has more money invested in its scenery and costumes than any other. Two young men of Phoenix started out yesterday afternoon to fight a duel. They had had some words in front of the poet office and before they came to blows one of the parties came to the conclusion that there was no honor in prize fighting, and suggested that they get a couple of pistols and fight it out on the field of honor. This being satisfactory to both parties they pro ceeded to one of the leading hardware stores to purchase the weapons. Whether it was the sight of a show case filled with ugly looking six-shooters or .heart failure, thsy began at once to re late their troubles to the merchant. After considerable talk, both men went out the rear door of the store and into the alley, leaving an anxious crowd of spectators, who had expected to see a real live duel, waiting on the front sidewalk. How to Cultivate Egff Plant. t No seed is more difficult to vegetate than the egg plant; it always requires the strongest heat. For early use sow in a hot-bed early in spring; after sowing-, give them a good watering and keep tho frame closed until the plants appear, than admit fresh air in fine weather; cover the frame at night with mats to protect against frost; after the plants attain two or three inches, they should be transplanted into another frame three inches apart in order to make strong plants before it is time for planting out; it is a very good plan to put them singly in small flower-pots and place them in a frame where they will become thoroughly established and ready for wetting out as soon as all cold weather is over, after which they can be planted from the pots without disturbing the roots; plant them in rows twenty inches apart and two feet from row to row; they luxuriate in rich, loamy soil. The egg plant is a very important and remunerative crop for the market gardener, and especial ly so for those who grown them for shipping. Prairie Farmer. IRVINE CO. Typewriter Sips 35-37 E.

Sullivan, secretary of the Pastime Ath letic club, and athletic editor of The Sporting Times, writes: "For vears I have been actively con nected with athletic sports. I always found it to my advantage to use All cock's Porous Plasters while in train ing, as they quickly remove soreness and stiffness ; and when attacked with any kind of pains, the result of slight colds, I always used Allcock's with ben eficial results.
