THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 7, 1896.
I Some Instruction In tne Art' of Produc ing Tlicso Oid-Tlmo Favorites. Even ?a the enlightened clays, when the art of pbotogiaphy has advanced' to very near to perfection, there are still t,ome oltMasiiioued people who cling with torn "mess to these silhouettes. One t;reat thin; in their favor is, that the least clever among us may with a little patience and a steady hand, find in tliera a pleasing recreation, and soon become adroit in their execution. But there may be some of our y oung readers who scarcely know what a silhouette is, and such unenlightened persons we will endeavor to instruct in the almost for gotten art. A few sheets of drawing paper, a pencil, and a lamp, are all the essential nfeeded to commence opera tions, says Happy Thoughts. The operator first fixes a sheet of paper to the wall, by inserting a pin in each corner. Then the person whose likeness, or "silhouette," is to be taken, is seated in a chair, close to the well, in such u position as to throw a distinct shadow of his profile (as near lifesize ts possible) on the center of the paper. To secure steadiness a wine glass, or pome Euc'a support, is placed between his head rnd the wall for the slightest movement often causes fa ;lure. Having arranged these matters satisfactorily, the operator proceeds to sketch, with a pencil, the head and profile of the "sitter;" and this requires a steady hand and some dispatch, as it is no easy master to sit in one position for a great length of time perfectly motion less. When the sketch is concluded, little ski!! will be needed to'fcring the task to vn end. The operator has only with a sharp penknife to cut out the head in the line of the pencil mark. The center part is then thrown aside, and the other paper laid on a piece of black cloth, which, throws out the features boldly, and, if sufficient care has been taken, a striking likeness will be the reward. The Number Thirteen. For those who believe in the fatality of th-i number thirteen, the American quarter-dollar is about the most un lucky article they can carry, says the Argonaut. On the said coin there are 13 stars, 13 letters in the Scroll which compose its wing, 13 feathers are in its tail, there are 13 parallel lines on the shield, 13 horrizontal stripes, 13 arrow heads, and. 13 letters in the words "quarter-dollar." This Is Tour Opportunity On receipt of ten cents, cash or stamps, a generous sample will be mailed of the most popular Catarrh and Hay Fever Cure (July s Uream Balm) sufficient to demon strate the great merits of the remedy. . ELI BEOTHEKS, 66 Warren St. , New York City. Bev. JohnReid, Jr., of Great Falls,Mont., recommended Ely's Cream Balm to me. I can emphasize his statement, "It is a posi tive cure for catarrh if used as directed." Rev. Francis W. Poole, Pastor CentralPres. Church, Helena, Mont - Ely's Cream Balm is the acknowledged enre for catarrh and contains no mercury nor any injurious drug. Price, 50 cents. OFFICIAL CALL. The Fifth National Irrigation Congress. Los Angelas, Cal., Sept 5, 1896. To tihe People of tihe United States of America: Pursuant to the order of 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 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 tihe Third and Fourth congresses: 1. Ail members of tihe National ex ecutive committee. 2. All members of state and terri torial irrigation commissions. 3. Mve 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. 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 the District of Columbia, by the president. 5. One delegate each from 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. iDuly 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 v 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 MAKING SILHOUETTES.' .Visas The highest claim for other tobaccos is "Just as good as Durham." Its' Every old 2 1 il - miuws uieie as good Yon vrill find one eacn two ounce V Si!!! m mas pons inside each tour ounce bag of Blackwell's Durham. Buy a bag of this cele brated tobacco and read the coupon which gives a list of valuable presents and how to get tihe west. To the sessions have come tfhie 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 remobe 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 Haoenix 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 ttat well-digested meas ures 'be prepared for the consideration o the federal congress and of the state legislatures. Though able au thorities will be in attendance and have been placed upon tihe 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 'been 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, c&osen for the location of the fifth congress, is in every way well adapted. It is a thrifty and progressive city of 13,000 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 is already at work and the promise is extended that every visitor will be furnished with tihe 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 havei 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. 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. Passengers may 'be routed into Phoe nix over either the Santa Fe or South ern Pacific railway systems. Oppor tunity at low cost will be 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 witlh 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.
