THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 16, 1896.
; THE FORMIDABLE UMBRELLA A French Tragedian rinds It Mightier Than the Sword I The affection of Hie collector for the objects of his zeal has been amusingly illustrated by a story told of Melingue, a French tragedian who had a mania for gathering together great quantities of old vestments, arms and similar an tique apparatus. Among his treasures was a beautiful and keen-edged sword which had belonged to Philip II.; sonot Emperor Charles V. Having worn this sword in a piece in which he was performing, Melingue was making his way homeward in Paris one night. The weather was rainy, and lie carried an umbrella. Under his cloak he bore the precious sword of Philip II. Coming around a corner, Melingue was suddenly menaced by two sneak thieves. He was an expert fencer, and knew that with the sword he could quickly beat the rascals off. But he said to himself: "What! Betray to these rascals that I have such a precious possession? No! They might be too much for me, after all, and then they would get it. I will keep it out of sight." So saying, he placed his left hand on the hilt of the sword inside his cloak, and with the other hand let down his umbrella. With this as a weapon, he assaulted the footpads with such force and spirit that he put them to flight. In this case the umbrella turned out to be mightier than the sword. ENGLISH SPORTING LITERATURE About One-Sixth ot the English Periodi cals Are Devoted to Sport It may give some idea of the place of sport in English life to the sedentary American to say that is difficult to find an Englishman between 18 and 05, in fair health, and not supported by the rates, who is not a performer at some kind of sport or .interested in some phase of it. Of the 673 reviews and magazines of a nonreligious character printed in England, says the Forum, one in six is largely devoted to some form of out-of-door sport or occupation. Between 1880 and 1885, according to a private index kept in the British mu seum, there were 266 books published. on tne one subject of sport or athletics; between 1885 and 1890, 412, and, al though the figures for the last five years are not at hand, the number of books on the same subiects promises to oe even larger, almost forty books on golf alone appearing during the last five years. Nor does this list include books on topics germain to the subject, such as books dealing with voyages, geography, history, biography and trade, of which there were 73S pub lished in London in 1893, and probably more than a thousand during the last year. In a word, John Bull loves the fresh air. He is a sportsman, an athlete, a soldier, a sailor, a traveler, a colonist, rather than a student, and all the fig ures bear mc out in making the state ment. During those horrible days in the Crimea, these sport-loving "young barbarians" were "all at play" when they wore not fighting; racing their ponies, getting up cricket matches, and off shooting such game as there was. One family the Pelhams hare hunted the Brocklesby pack of hounds for more than 175 years. SALABLE TURKEYS. The Old-Fashlonnd Gobbler Gives Place to a Sledlnm-blsed Bird. All commission merchants agree that it is the medium-sized turkeys that sell the most readily and are the most profitable. The birds should dress eight, ten or twelve pounds, according to the proportion of toms and hens, they say. and should look plump and clean. These birds are the first se lected, and, the others go off more slowly. At over fourteen pounds a re duction in the price is demanded, while birds at eighteen or twenty pounds are almost unsalable at greatly reduced rates. Of course there is some demand for large turkeys for hotels and boarding houses, but the private family will have none of them, for two excellent reasons:'. First, the oven in the average city house is too small to accommodate such a lordly bird, and, secondly, the size of the family not being in propor tion, its members would rebel at the turkey's too frequent appearance at meals. It would be well for the tur key raiser to keep both these points in view and regulate the size of his birds accordingly. He will save in feed and get better returns for his flock. The day of the enormous gobbler is past. N. Y. World. ELECTION RESULTS. Betting on the results of election or anything else never dhanges the actual results, neither is the practice com mendable. There is, however, no bet ter 'barometer to show ihow anything is going fhan the odds offered in wagers either for or against. Below is the lat est quotations from the New York pool rooms on the results of the coming election, given by states. Any one can readily see that McKinley has clearly the best of it: General result, 2 to 1 on McKinley. New York city, even money on Mfr Kinley. Alabama, 2 to 1 on Bryan. Arkansas, 4 to 1 on Bryan. California, even on McKinley. Colorado, 4 to 1 on Bryan. REPUBLICAN WANTS FIND Connecticut, 10 to 7 on McKinley. Delaware, 10 to 7 on McKinley. Filorida, 1 to 3 on McKinley. Georgia, 3 to 1 on Bryan. Idaho, 8 to 5 on. Bryan. Illinois, 5 to 4 on McKinley. Indiana, 10 to 7 on McKinley. Iowa, 10 to 9 on McKinley. Kansas, even on McKinley. Kentucky, even on McKinley. Maine, 4 to 1 on McKinley. . .Maryland, even on McKinley. Massachusetts, 6 to 1 on McKinley. Michigan, 10 to 7 on McKinley. Minnesota, 10 to 9 on McKinley. Mississappd, 3 to 1 on Bryan. Missouri, 7 to 10 on McKinley. Montana, 3 to 1 on Bryan. Nebraska, 4 to 5 on McKinley. Nevada, 3 to 1 on Bryan. New Hampshire, 4 to 1 on McKinley. Nerwi Jersey, 2 to 1 on McKinley. New York, 6 to 1 on McKinley. North Carolina; 1 to 2 on McKinley. Nontib Dakota, 1 to 3 on McKinley. Louisiana, 1 to 2 on McKinley. Ohio, 2 to 1 on McKinley. Oregon, 3 to 6 on McKinley. Pennsylvania, 10 to 1 on McKinley. Rhode Island, 2 to 1 on McKinley. South Carolina, 3 to 1 on Bryan. South Dakota, 1 to 3 on McKinley. Tennessee, 1 to 3 on McKinley. Texas, 3 to 1 on Bryan. Vermont, 6 to 1 on McKinley. Virginia, 1 to 2 on McKinley. West Virginia, even on McKinley. Washington, 1 to 3 on McKinley. Wisconsin, 10 to 7 on McKinley. Wyoming, 3 to 5 on McKinley. The odds opposite each state, are on the candidate carrying such state, and not against ihim. OFFICIAL CALL The Fifth National Irrigation Congress. Los Angeles. Cal., Sept. 5, 1896. To ithe People of the United States of America: Pursuant to the order of the Fousth Irrigation congress and to designation bv the National executive committee, the fifth annual session of the National Irrigation congress will be held in the citv of Phoenix. Arizona, upon the dates of December 15, 16 and 17, 1896. The membership of the body will be made up as follows, in accordance with the .resolutions of ftue Third and Fourth congresses: 1. All members of the National ex ecutive committee. 2. AH members of state and terri torial irrigation commissions. 3. Five delegates at large, to be ap pointed by their respective governors. for each of the following states and territories: Arizona, California, Colo rado. Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Ne braska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Da kota. Texas. Utah, iWashington and Wyoming. 4. Three delegates at large for each state and territory not heretofore enumerated, to be appointed by the governors of said states and terri tories; or, in the case of itlhe District of J Columbia, by the president 5. One delegate each irom regularly organized irrigation, agricultural and horticultural societies, and societies of engineers, irrigation companies, agri cultural colleges, and commercial bod ies, such as 'boards of trade, chambers of commerce, etc. 6. fDuly accredited representatives of any foreign nation or colony, each member of the United States senate and house of representatives, and each governor of a state or territory will be admitted as honorary members. The work of the National Irrigation congress has now continued for more than five years. The first session was held in the city of Salt Lake, Utah; the second in Los Angeles, California; the third in Denver, Colorado; and the : : t t HELP. a : fourth in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Each session was marked by keen in terest and by intelligent and effective work in the cause of irrigation and the (reclamation of the arid lands of the west. To the sessions have come the brightest minds of the Union, seek ing to solve in concord the vexed ques tions upon the solution of which de pends the further development of the western and west central plains. The work has not been without its fruit Interest has 'been awakened in points remote from the irrigated regions and the reclamation tot the waste areas is now regarded in all justice as one of the most important problems awaiting legislation. The coming session at Phoenix will, it is not doubted, be the most effective of all. Particularly prominent will be made the discussion of points of legis lation in order that well-digested meas ures 'be prepared for the consideration of the federal congress and of the state legislatures. Though able au thorities will 'be in attend ance and have been placed upon the programme for the presentation of subjects of .techni cal and economic interest, it is de signed that the fifth congress shall be a body with work far more general than has ibeen the case in any of its predecessors. Addresses presenting subjects shall be limited to fifteen minutes and the subsequent discussion to half an hour, this ruling of the ex ecutive committee not applying, how ever, to the discussion of legislation or resolutions. The city of Phoenix, chosen for the location of the fifth congress, is in every way well adapted. It is a thrifty and progressive city of 12,000 inhabi tants, the capital of the territory of Arizona, and is excellently well pre pared for the reception of even the thousands who will come to attend congress. Its local committee of ar rangements and reception fls already at work and the promise is extended that every visitor will be furnished with the best of accommodations at prices even lower than usually charged locally. The city is situated in the midst of the richest irrigated valley in America, that of the Salt river, whose irriga tion works of the grandest magnitude are to be studied works that have transformed the parched plains into wondrous orchards and vast fields of alfalfa. Ample opportunity will be af forded delegates to inspect all points of interest without cost. Bailroad rates will not exceed a single fare for the round trip from all points between Chicago and the Pa cific ocean; details of transportation and ticket limitation to be later an nounced hy the interested railroads. Passengers may 'be routed into Phoe nix over either the Santa Fe or South ern .Pacific railway systems. Oppor tunity at low cost will he given for side trips to the Grand canyon of the Colorado, to the City of Mexico, to southern California and other points. It is especially desired that govern ors and others with the power of ap pointment advise the secretary of the executive committee at as early a date as possible of the names of the ap pointees, and correspondence will be welcomed by the secretary upon all the details antecedent to the congress.
