Lately The necessity of immediate action in the protection of the community against diseased or impure milk is be ing impressed upon the members of the city council and tv.e health officer. The passage of a milk inspection ordinance at the earliest possible moment is de manded, and for the purpose of allay ing the apprehension of users of milk and at the same time doing justice to the various dairies, for it is not likely that all of them are turning out im pure and diseased milk, an official analysis of all milk is insisted upon. The present unpleasant condition of affairs has not come upon the city without warning. It was known to exist long ago and was talked about by physicians and others whose attention was attracted to the criminal careless ness with which some of the dairies were conducted. It was regarded as. a matter of fo much importance that Dr. William DuflieM. the retiring city h'.llth olfi'-.T. last spring included it in his final report to the city council in the following paragraph: '"The records show twelve deaths from typhoid fever, which is consider ably higher than the previous year. It is a remarkable record. Few cities of the same kind can make a similar showing. The bad drainage of many parts of the city, the proximity of privy vaults and " 'cesspools to wells, the watering of dairy cattle from stagnant ponds and pools, the Ignorance of many who care' for typhoid patients as to the contagion of the disease, are all suffi cient causes for its increase." The concluding paragraph of Dr. Duffield's repYirt contains a peculiarly applicable recommendation to the pres ent condition of affairs. Says he: "The time has come when Phoenix must adopt modern public health laws or suffer greatly by the failure to do so. As a city we pose as a health resort and endeavor to bring people here to find a healthful climate. The climate is good, but our general sanitary conditions are not good. If we wish to grow as a city and a territory we must make some effort to assure strangers that the climate is aided by healthful surroundings." o THE MUSKETEERS Story by Mr. Paul Gilmore and His Strong Company. Mr. Paul Gilmore and his strong company interpreted "The Musketeers" to a Phoenix audience at the Patton Grand last night. It was probably the first time that the play has been pre sented here and the presentation was entirely satisfactory. Mr. Gilmore's fame in the principal role of D'Artag- nan had preceded him and was fully sustained by his performance last night. A character so much in thrill ing action is that of the famous Gascon, whose religion was the king, or rather, whose king was his religion, necessar ily taxes the energy of an actor, but the tax was met by Mr. Gijmore. The greatest of Dumas' romances is crowded with incident and a dramati zation of it can contain a compara tively small part. The ingenuity of a dramatist must guide him in making his selection. The dramatization of the version offered last night was exceed ingly ingenious. The playwright in this case chose the best and as much as could be crowded into three interesting hours, telling the story of the triumph of Anne of Aus tria, aided by the faithful D'Artag nan, the faithful Bonacieux and the Three Musketeers, over the craftiness of Richelieu and thejeaJousy of Louis XIII. This is the whole story of this ersion and it was admirably told to a very large and well selected audience. By request the play will, be repeated this afternoon. Tonight 'the company will appear in "Don Caesari"- "v o -. . . . A LITERARY ENTERPRISE Of More Than Passing Interest Being Promoted in Denver. Good wine improves with age. While this may not be said of a book, which once written is finished forever, It is true that time alone brings to light a knowledge of the real value of some publications. The Arabian Nights Kntertuinments, as translated from the Arabic text in the early days of book publishing has long been a standard work and no li brary is considered complete without it. Book worms have pondered over its fascinating pages, not only admir ing the conception of its wonderful tales but reveling in the purity of ex pression in its English translation. The literateur prizes it even more for its vivid descriptions, its rhetoric and grandeur of composition, than for its interesting stories. The writing of these tales, however, was so far back in the musty ages of the past that even the authorship is a matter of doubt. Great changes in the social customs of civilized man have occurred since the writing of these ro mances, which of course, conformed to the manners and methods of that day. Literary men, therefore, recog nizing the true value of the work to both old and young, have placed it before the public at a price within the reach of all. But they have found it necessary in so doing to expurgate many passages and many descriptions that however meritorious in their way, and delightful to the real student, would be highly improper for general circulation, or for perusal by the im mature reader of this day and gener ation. Realizing these things, and the fact that if nothing was done to perpetuate the original text, a gem would ulti mately be lott to the literateur. Cap tain Sir Richard F. Burton of London England, in 1S52, began the transla tion of the work from the original Arabic text. Like all such literary or ganisms of slow growth, many of its beauties and treasures lie partly be neath the surface. The profounder so cial and religious sentiments must sometimes be searched fur. The work is both the history of Moslem culture and the record of Moslem esprit in the palmy days of the Arabs in Asia. It is said Sir Richard Burton was perhaps the only one who joined to the necessary linguistic knowledge that practical experience of eastern life, which alone could supply the true meaning of a troublesome passage. The Burton translation was finished and 1,000 copies printed in Benares, India, in lSBo. by the Kamashastra so ciety, being supplied only to the mem bers of the soiiely. It was, as far as human invention could make it, a com plete reproduction of the original, not only in text, but in paper, binding, etc. Copies of this edition can now rarely be found, save in big libraries, where they will always remain. These conditions led to the organiza tion in Denver of what is known as "The Burton Society'' for the purpose of promoting tiie study of uriur.ii-tl lit erature, and having for its special ob ject the publication of another edition of the Burton translation of the Ara bian Nights, which is properly entitled ' The Book of a Thousand Nights and a Night." The counsel for the society, Mr. James II. Perching, of Djnver, has been in Phoenix for the last ten davs, and from him it is learned that the new "Burton Edition." like the origi nal, will appear in sixteen volumes, h? ing an exact reproduction, including the 100 illustrations by Stanley L. Wood. The society has been at great expense in the manufacture of paper and material for binding, which will perfectly match the original. Like the Kamashastra society, they will print but 1,000 sets to be distrib uted one set to each member. Mem bership in the society costs $100, and in addition every member must prove his standing, his mature years, and his pure literary motives in joining, else he will be rejected, as the book, for obvious reasons, is not designed for general circulation even by those who possess it. Several volumes have been issued and it is expected the set will be completed some time next year. The work is reproduced by special permis sion and will be a monument to the enterprise of the new west in perpetu ating one of the ancient literary gems that have survived the wreck cf age3 and the crash of time. o THE SEX OF SHIPS. The word "ship"- is masculine in French, Italian, Spanish and Portu guese, and possesses no sex in Teutonic and Scandinavian. Perhaps it would not be an error to trace the custom of feminizing ships back to the Greeks, who called them by feminine names probably out of deference to Athene, goddess of . the sea. But the English speaking sailor assigns no such rea sons. The ship to him is always a lady, even though she be a man-o'-war. She possesses a waist, collars, stays. laces, bonnets, ties, ribbons, chains, watches and dozens of other distinctly feminine attributes. Collier's Weekly. BUBBLING OVER WITH GOOD THIXGSTO EAT.
