TO t!he People of he United States of America: Pursuant to rtiie order I the Fourth Irrigation congress and to designation by the National executive committee, the fifth annual session of the National Irrigation congress will be held In the city of Phoendx, 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 tihe resolutions of the Third and Fourth congresses: 1. Ail members of the National ex ecutive committee. ' 2. AM 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, Washington and Wyoming. 4.

Duly accredited representatives of amy 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 tihe city of Salt Lake, Utah; the second in Los Angeles, California; the third in Denver, Colorado; and the 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 tfhie brightest minds of the Union, seek ing to solve in concord tihe 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 ihas been awakened in points remote from the irrigated regions and the reclamation of 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 attendance 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 ihour, this ruling of the ex ecutive committee not applying, how ever, to the discussion of legislation or resolutions. The city of Phoendx, 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 ine reception of even the thousands who will come to attend congress. Its local committee of ar rangements and reception tis 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 alf alfa. Ample opportunity will be af forded delegates to inspect all points of interest wi thout cost. ' Railroad 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 'by the interested railroads.

THE GERMAN -AMERICAN STAFF OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS: I am thank ful to say that my face is entirely well and will never trouble me again. After having suf fered from cancer for fifteen years, there is scarcely a ecar. Thanking you for making such a permanent cure, I am your well wisher, TH0S. TAYLOR. Carson City, January 16, 1896. TO ALL SUFFERERS OF CATARRH IN ANY STAGE OF THE DISEASE GREETING : This certifies that for the last twenty-five years I have been a eufierer from indigestion and the dreadful disease of Caiarrh of the head, throat and ears. I have used almost every preparation that has been introduced in that time for the cure of Catarrh, but without receiving any practical benefit therefrom. I have just concluded at the hands of The German-American Staff of Physicians and Surgeons, and can pronounce their system of treating the disease the very best that I ever experienced, for it goes right to the root of the trouble, thereby eradicating it and driving it out of the system. When I commenced the treatment I was so deaf I could scarcely hear ; the right ear was in a bad shape, almost gone ; the root of my tongue was all covered with dried nlcers. T fnrt bqv heen rti-pi-iag to all who came in contact with myself. To the German-American Staff I consider I owe a debt of gratitude for having completely restored me to health egain. I can hear to day as well as I ever could, all symptoms of the disease have passed away. I cheerfully .recommend ail sufferers from Catarrh not to put off, but to consult the German-American Staff at once. They will cure you. If you are skeptical and don't believe it, just tele graph me.
