THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: THURSDAY MORNING, -SEPTEMBER 27, 1900. NLARLY HIRE NOW! ONLY FOUR DAYS MORE! ARE YOU ALL READY FOR IT? We refer to the wild duck season. Ducks and geese may lawfully be killed on and after October first. If you have a gun perhaps you need some repairing on it; if you have no gun you should examine our line. It is the largest and best in the territory. Anyway, you will want some of our FRESH AMMUNITION. If you want old ammunition, that has been thoroughly dried out In this climate for months and years, don't come to us. We haven't any of It. We make special low prices on lots of 5U0 and 1,000 shells. Now is the time to buy It. We are the "jobbers' list" on ammunition, and can make closer prices than most houses.

Cowan, pastor of the First M. E. church has Just completed his annual report. It is appended, in its entirety: To the Members and Friends of the First M. E. Church, Greeting: In submitting to you my first annual report, I take occasion first of all to thank God for his faithful watch care over us, In giving us health and strength to prosecute the work 'of the church with but one month's Intermis sion. Laying aside all unworthy ambitions, we have sincerely endeavored to know the will of God In carrying on the work of the church, and while we have not measured up to the divine ideal in pur ity and power, yet we are glad to note that there has been a gradual growth in the spiritual interests of the church. The prayer meetings are held each Wednesday evening, with an average attendance of forty. Great interest has been manifested on the part of those attending, in the prayer meeting topics, and strength has come into many hearts by waiting upon the Lord. The Sunday school is in a prosperous condition, under the superintendency of Lloyd B. Christy, and has been con tinued through the year without any in termission'. The average attendance during the year is 125. We would re commend a more faithful attendance upon the part of parents and teachers, and a more diligent study of the word of God. The Ladies Aid Society, under the presidency of Mrs. J. A. Sparks, has been doing efficient work during the year in raising money on the church debt, and in creating a stronger social life among the members and friends of the church. The amount raised and disbursed during the year was $157.60. iThe Epworth League has an enroll ment of members, many of whom are very active in league and church work. The Sunday evening meetings have continued through the summer, with good interest. Under the wise and ju dicious direction of the president, Dr. George B. Pratt and his faithful cabi net, the Epworth League should be one of the greatest agencies in the church for the Increase of Bible knowledge for charitable work, and spiritual life. Special attention was given to the Mercy and Help department during the winter and comforting the sorrowing and distressed, and in relieving the sick and needy. The social and literary de partments should be utilized more ex tensively to Balance up the interests of the league. The Junior League, the last organiza tion in the church but not the least rn importance and efficiency. This auxil ary to the Epworth League and nursery for the children of our church was care fully looked after during the winter by Miss Alephia Hamilton. The instruc tion in the Bjble, the catechism, the Apostles' creed and the Ten Command ments, were carefully given. An im portant missionary enterprise was be gun by sending $15 to India to support a boy in one of our schools. Membership There have been a number of changes in the membership of the church during the year. Fifteen have united with the church on profes sion of faith, and thirty-seven by cer tificate. Twelve have removed by letter and two have withdrawn by their own request. Six of our number have been translated to the better life, viz: Mrs. Minnie Dean, Mrs. Georgiana Eder, Mrs. Sarah Williams Mrs. Francis Curtis. Mrs. I. M. Christy and Law rence S. Hough. Faith and work will need to go hand in hand for the continued prosperity of the church. AnU now, as we close the year with the session of our annual meeting may we not all pray for the blessing of God upon us, and may we not have the hearty co-operation of one and all and expect greater things in the future than in the past.

' The executive committee of the dem ocratic central committee held a meet ing yesterday afternoon and arranged the itinerary for the candidates. The campaign will be opened at Tempe on the night of October 2, and thereafter until the night of November 5 no stops will be made for wood or water. The first week will be spent on the south and east sides. Mesa, McDowell and the intervening sheep, mining and cow camps. The week following the aggregation will move toward the Buckeye coun try; the next week the inflic tion w:i! be laid upon Alhamora. Glen Jale, Pe oria, Morristown, WIckenburg and wayside ranches. The fourth week will be occupied at Cram mountain ail in the conversion of the cattle on Perry Sears 'range on the Verde to the principles of democracy. It will be remembered that at the time of the county convention when it was pro posed to swell the number of Smith rep resentatives Verde was added to the list of precincts. A Wilson supporter wanted to know if anybody lived there. A member of the Smith element was surprised to learn that it was not uni versally known that Verde was the seat of Perry Sears' cattle range. "But Perry Sears does not live there," said the Wilson delegate: "he lives near Phoenix." "But he keeps his cattle there," was the reply. "He has 2,000 head there now." "My God!" exclaimed the Wilson supporter. "We ain't goin' to give cat tle no representation In this-here con vention, are we?" In making up the itinerary the advis ability of including Smithville in it was considered. Mr. W. T.' Smith, the sole resident of that populous precinct, whenever he is there, told the commit tee that he would be pleased to as semble himself there to hear the speeches of the candidates and would do so if the committee Insisted upon it, but that it would be inconvenient for him to go out there any time within the next six weeks. If it made no dif ference, Mr. Smith ald, he would at tend the meetings in Phoenix. Santo Domingo was put on the list, but the committee was reminded that the only citizen of that place. Joel White, had not been there for thirteen months and as late as the date of the county convention, September 6. his abiding place had not been discovered. His proxy, Logan Rives, is in town frequently and the committee gave the candidates permission to fabor with him wherever and whenever they could catch him. Charles Woolf, who is sojourning at Tempe, has been requested by the com mittee to be at his political residence. Kyrene, on the night of o'tober 7, so the -candidates may have an audience at that important place on the itin erary. FROM MANY SOURCES. The English tobacco trade employs today 121 women to every 100 men. The finest looking people of Europe are the Tziganes, or gypsies, of Hun gary. Queen Victoria has not worn her crown more than twenty times during her whole reign. The fastest flowing river in the world is the Sutlej, in India. Its descent is 12,000 feet in 180 miles. In the streets of an average city there are about 3,000 bacteria to the cubic yard of air, and hi the hospital at the front as many as S0.000. There are ordinarily from thirty to forty varieties of fish in the Honolulu market. A large percentage of the natives make their living by fishing. The crust of the earth under Japan must be comparatively thin, judging by the number of earthquake shocks in that country. They average 500 a year. The children of the Boers, females as well as males, are taught to use the rifle before they are 10 years of age. This explains why the Boers are good marksmen. Scientists now assert that the human body is full of microbes. When they are in good condition, the man is healthy; but when they are inactive from illness, the man needs medical treatment. Lightning has killed so many cattle while they were standing near wire fences that it is proposed to diminish the danger by means of ground wires, which will conduct the electricity into the earth.

Harry Riley, a young farmer living near Woodstown, pastures his horse in a field through which runs a muddy creek. The other day one of the horses came up in a gallop to the fence sur rounding the house and whinnied loud ly. Then it wheeled about and ran to ward the creek, but no especial atten tion was then paid to it by the family. Again the beast appeared, dashing up over the hill, and neighed frantically at the fence. Farmer Riley went to the horse and patted it soothingly on the nose, whereupon the animal seized him by the coat sleeve and pulled him up against the fence, as if to haul him over it. The horse soon released Riley and then ran a few feet toward the creek, wheeled about and again came back, whinnying excitedly. The strange actions of the horse final ly convinced Riley that something un usral was the matter, andi when he started to follow it the delight of the beast was manifest. The intelligent f nimal led Riley to the bank of the stream, at a spot nearly concealed by bushes, and there in the quickmire, v ith only half its head visible, was the Gin;.: horse, buried and slowly sinking out of sight. Riley quickly summoned the help of neighboring farmers with shovels and ropes, and after several hours of hard work succeeded in extricating the horse from what would certainly have been its grave had it not been for the intel ligence and faithfulness of its mate. Cleveland Leader. o SOME MILITARY LUXURIES. Even the Common Soldier Thes? Days Is Entitled to Certain Ones. Washington Field Marshal Count von Waldersee's "campaign house," with seven rooms and bath, which he is carrying with him for a movable head quarters in China, is the very latest wrinkle in military luxury. It is de scribed as a light, fireproof and water proof dwelling, constructed on the knock down principle, so as to be read ily taken to pieces and put up again when wanted for occupancy. The ma terial of it is asbestos, and light wag ons will be used for its transportation in the field. Erected hastily like a house of cards, and' supplied in a jiffy with its furniture (likewise carried along with the column), it will provide the commander-in-chief with all the comforts of home at every halting place on the march. There is a popular notion to the effect that luxury is inappropriate to the warrior. Much criticism, as will be re membered, was elicited by the porcelain bath tub which accompanied General Miles on his trip to Florida at the out break of the war with Spain. It is true that the tub in question was mere ly an appurtenance of a parlor car, but, it was asked, why should a soldier bathe in a porcelain receptacle? War is an ascetic profession, or ought to be such. The knights of old never bathed. Their metal costume was not adapted for ahlntionarv nurnoses nn:l thov hsi1 I other and more important business on hand. Is there mentioned In all liter ature a single instance of a knight taking a bath? Whenever congress happens to learn of any luxurious indulgence by an ofli- ! cer of the army such, for example, as the keeping of a cow there is a move ment to cut down pay and allowances. Nevertheless, rank in the service today carries with it opportunities for luxury especially if the rank be high which were undreamed of in the early days of this ambitious republic. It is cn rec ord that George Washington, when commander-in-chief of the forces, was obliged to subsist for a good while chielly on sweet potatoes, and that, on a certain occasion, he was driven to borrow a leg of mutton in order to pro vide for the decent entertainment (of an honored guest. Lieutenant General Miles, who is now subject only to President McKinley, the commander-in-chief of our army, draws $11,000 a year in pay, in addition to various perquisites. He keeps four horses at the cost of the government, and, in addition, he has an "allowance for quarters" of five rooms and one kitchen. The government provides him also with five stoves and one range. and with forty-four cords of wood per! annum. Barring the fuel allowance, he has a right to draw, and does draw, all of these thiifgs in the shape of cash, which is su much addition to his sal ary. A brigadier general or major general is entitled to the keep of three horses at Uncle Sam's expense; a colonel, liou- am n r f rrsl nnul vn n 4itr ni Kinluin t n two I only. It is required by the army reg ulations that the animals shall be in actual use for government purposes, but that is taken for granted to be the case with the commanding general. fli;iAfTrER gL Ditto, as regards Adjutant General Corbin's horses. For each horse twelve pounds of oats and fourteen pounds of hay are allowed. Officers of less rank have corresponding allowances for for age. Not long ago an indignant member of congress rose and entered formal pro test against what he deemed an abuse of privilege in this regard. "I find, on investigation, Mr. Speak er," he fairly shrieked, "that abuses arecreeping into this system. 'T have discovered' that officers of the army are selling the forage allowed to them, and one such case I am prepared to cite from the records of the war de partment a case in which the oats and hay were transferred, doubtless for a consideration, to' a person named Q. M. Corral." A hush of horror fell upon the house but presently a western member, who had been in the army himself, rose up on a very long pair of legs and said: "I presume, Mr. Speaker, that the memorandum referred' to by my dis tinguished friend refers to a transfer of forage, in the ordinary course of bus iness, to the quartermaster's corral." That settled the scandal, for once. It is a fact that a rich man who hap pens to hold high rank in the army of this or any other country may be as much of a sybarite as he wishes. The limit is only set. by his pecuniary means, with the single restriction that the "conveniences" he carries along with him must not interfere with the movements of the column. A portable steamboat, or a balloon, is perfectly al lowable, so long as it does not violate this regulation. Officers are always at liberty to bring as many servants with them as they choose. A young lieutenant has the privilege of a lord in this respect; he may have a valet and a dozen fellows in addition to wait upon him. Of course, he must pay them out of his own purse, however. Only maid servants are bar red, being excluded by regulations from the camp. The subsistence bureau of the army wishes to make as many luxuries avail for officers and soldiers as may be prac ticable, and. with this in view, it has recently added "dessicated eggs" to its i "sales stores." This product is simply evaporated eggs, and it may be used not only for cake, but for an omelet or a scramble. Clam extract, in 'cans, is another new departure, and the same may be said of canned crabs, canned lobsters, canned oysters, canned mush rooms and corned beef hash. Pea. meal and bean meal, condensed cream, malted milk, ginger ale, appo'.linaris water and tooth powders and tooth pastes are among the recent additions to the list of privation modifiers acces sible to our fighting men abroad. Tobacco and iea are deemed by the war department necessary for soldier. In a recently published document, the bureau of subsistence said: "Under the influence of tea, coffee, or tobacco, man seems to be brought to a higher efficiency than witfiout them. They keep up cheerfulness and enable men to endure fatigue and pri vations, while deprivation of them may cause depression, homesickness, feeble ness, and, indeed, may lead to defeat in battle. Depressed troops do not fight well. A wise military leader will WITTICISM OF A PRINCESS. The Princess Arfbert, Queen Victo- 1 ria's Grandaughter, who was recently I in Washington, cracked a joke a real American joke at the expense of pri vate John Allen, the celebrated wit of , the house of representatives. She and , the British embassador. Lord Paunce- fote, went to the capitol sightseeing in t the afternoon, and, of course, occupied ; seats in the diplomatic gallery. Mr. j Allen was in the midst of a serious j speech when they arrived, but he was i unable to divert himself of his end-man ' style of elocution, pacing up and down the aisle, swinging his arms like a wind : mill and roaring out an answer to Chairman Payne of the ways and means committee, who had just taken his seat. The princess watched his an tics for some time, ithen, turning to an attendant, asked: "What is the gentle man talking about?" "He is speaking now, your highness," explained the attendant, "for a better ment of conditions at St. Elizabeth's in sane asylum, and " "Poor fellow," interrupted the prin cess, with a tinge of sorrow in her tone. "How eloquent a man can become in defense of his home." Boston Jour- i nal. A TrUCK OP THE TRADE.

Cigars, tobacco and briarwood pipes are furnished by the subsistence bu reau, which, at the same time, makes the restriction that not more than ten kinds of cigars, none costing over 6 cents each by the hundred, shall be of fered for sale by the war department to officers and men. It is also pre scribed that soups shall not be .of more than five kinds, pickles of more than six kinds, and' toilet soaps of more than eight kinds.
