The meeting was for the pur pose of a demonstration to the grow ers of the things they should do just at this time for the best results dur ing the present season. C. A. Broom ell who Is in charge of the Santa Fe ranch is a skilled farmer and has a fine stand of melons, the place being an exceptionally good one for the demonstration. Mr. Cudwallader gave full directions and after the meeting the growers an nounced that they had been informed on very many things that are import ant just at this time. There was lots of enthusiasm and they appreciate the work of the field expert. Asked concerning the cantaloupe outlook In general in this valley, Mr. Cadwallader said the people here, not withstanding it is their first season in the business, have better prospects than many of the older growers in the Imperial country. There is a good stand and the plants for the most 01 03 We will sell 2000 Boxes of Straw berries at 10c or three boxes for 25c If nothing prevents they will arrive Saturday morning. 1 No delivery, no reserve, as long as they last they go at oc per box. five acres or more which returns the most profit per acre for the cantaloupe crop. An incident of yesterday's meeting of the 'Phoenix association was the discussion of the proposed shutting off of the water in the cana's for two weeks during the heading in of the Arizona canal at Granite Reef. The move, the growers fear, will be dis nitrous to their cvropsj just at this time and a committee was appointed to wait on the reclamation officials and see if a. little postponement can not be secured until the plants are more matured. Mr. Cadwallader left last night for Yuma end will return again in about two weeks. STUDENTS' RECITAL ON MONDAY NIGHT Advanced Piano Pupils of ths Arizona School of Music Will Give a Public Entertainment. ' m ee Cash Store part seem to be doing well. Mr. Cad dallader spent Friday in (Jl. ndale where he nut the members of the Glendale association for a like pur pose. He said he did not car" to draw any comparisons that might give of fense and In fact the general crop in the valley is fine taken as a whole. He believed the Glendale people had perhaps a little the best stand, but he thought the Phoenix association hud its crop on the average in a little bet ter shape. In Glendale Tom Bhike has probably the best stand in the valley being practically 100 per cent. Many fcjjve about Sn per cent, but even 85 Ier cent is, good. The twenty-five dol lar prize hung by Dr. Foss for the Glendale growers to compete for has inspired them to the best possible ef forts.

Answer to last week's Letter Enlrma: Dance Cap. Mrytle and May Jn4:son were sisters, aged fourteen and twelve, respectively. Their borne was on a farm adjoining a town that nestled In a wooded valley. Between the JacLson farm and the towu stretched the town park, a lonely barren place with Its gaunt trees and Ice-paved walks during the winter. It was not a forbidding place by daylight, hut at night It was quite desolate enough to make an ordinary boy or girl feel "creepy" If obliged to pass through It, unless aoeouipanled by an adult. One evening. Just nftcr supper was over In the Jackson home, the son of a distant relative of Mrs. Jackson came driving np In a sleigh, calling to Mrs. Jackson who bad hurried to the door to greet blra that his mother was very HI, snd that be had come to take Mrs. JicLsod to ner bedside. "I hope ye? ess woe with ne, sunt Mary," pleaded the man. "for mother thinks there is no nurse tx lbs world like yon." "Certainly Jack, I'll be ready In s minute," promised Mrs. Jackson. "Come in and warm yourself while I get into my wraps." "But Mamma," said May, "what will Myrtle and I do here alone? You know papa will not be borne till tomor row evening, and may be detained even longer, if the old Jury doesn't agree." "Oh, is Uncle Frank on the Jury?" asked Jack, who was warming his be numbed fingers at the big base-burner which glowed with cheerful coals. "Yes, and tte ease that Is now being tried will not be given to the Jury till tomorrow morning," said Myrtle. "So, you see. If mamma goes away slater and I will be bere alone." Q$ "Didn't 8am promise to return at bed time?" asked Mrs. Jackson, drawing on her overshoes. She referred to their hired man, who was perfectly trnstworthy in every respect, snd who had lived with the Jackson family since Myrtle and May were mere tots. And many and many a time he had looked after the house, the children and the farm in the absence of Mr. and Mrs. Jackson. "Ob, If Sam returns before bedtime it's all right," said Myrtle. "But yon know be bas a long ride before him." "Where did be go?" asked Jack, who, as a relative of the family, held the right Tohe House Builders. it "Little builder, why did yon cry?" Sister Jane asked yesterday. " 'Cos I meant to reach the sky. And the ceiling's in the way.". "Never mind." said slater Jane, "Let us build up to the plrster." So they took the blocks again And began to build up faster. Then enme Uncle through the door With his ugly, growu up nieces. -They made an earthquake on the floor . And broke t&s palace all to pieces. to ask questions pertaining to the fain lly matters. "Well, you know. Jack, that Sam baa an old friend living about elirht mile from town over south. This old friend's daughter was marrle.l today aud Sam felt that he must attend the wed ljng Laden with pre.ieuts which represented all the ilejr o;j man's last wass he hitched old Sorry to the buggy and -set off for the place of festivity. The wed ding was planned to take place at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Sam thought he'd be through with the 'palaver,' as he called It, and ready to start for home about 4 or 5 o'clock. In that event he'd arrive bere sometime between 7 and 8s" explained Mrs. Jackson. "And during all the years that Sam bas worked for us I might say, been one of the fam ily be has never broken his word with ns. So I'm ss.sure that he'll be bere on time as I am sure of tomorrow's sun shining." "Yon must not forget. Mamma mine," feterpused Myrtle, with a smile, "that the ns cuaot be Interfered with by mortal man, wbsraas the most trivial cir cumstance often alters ths plan of a poor creature on the earth. TT see rio tims of circumstances. The sun is ail powerful." "Yob are a great wiseacre," laughed Mrs. Jackson, stroking Myrtle's hair ten derly. "But, be not afraid. Even though Sam were detained an hour or so yoo two girls are perfectly safe here. Lock np the bonse securely, draw down the shades, and people passing will never know that two little girls hold the fort alone. And now, goodby, dearies, I must hasten to your poor auntie's bedside." And Mrs. Jackson kissed her daughters goodby snd was soon on her way to minister to her sick relative. Myrtle and May locked and fastened doors and windows, not waiting for the night to fall before securing themselves in their stronghold. ;'Say, Sister," said May. excitedly, "I have thought of a plan to fool anyone who might be skulking about to do mis chief here while we are alone. Sup pose we light up the parlor, the ball and sitting-room, and maybe mamma's room np stairs. Then let's play the piano and sing with sll our might, and anyone pass ing will think a party is in progress." Myrtle laughed at ber sister's plan and said she thought It quite unnecessary to go to so much trouble, and that she preferred to pasa the evening in a book that was most instructive and entertain ing. "Besides." she went on. "Sam will doubtless turn In just ss the clock strikes eight -Xon know how punctual he la Were he out of his bed at 9 o'clock I think the world would stop.". Then. Myrtle burled ber body In s big easy chair, drawn np before the lire, and her mind in a book, which sbe found most engrossing. May got her drawing materials snd proceeded to sketch the old cat that lay on a fur rug, taking life easy. Thus the time passed, and to Myrtle's astonishment the clock struck nine. So Interested la her book had she been that sbe had not besrd the striking of eight. Neither bad Mny noticed the passing of the time, for Tabby bad proved so fine a model for her pencil that all but her drawing had been forgotten. "Let's go to bed." yawned Myrtle, lay ing aside her book. "It's qnlte evident tbut Sam bits been detained in some nuy. He'll wake us up on his return, for doors are locked aud barred, so that he'll bare to call us to let him In. Gee! I'm really getting sleepy. And I don't feel the least bit afraid, either, although I thought It would be awfully creepy to stay bere alone Just you and me." "Well, I guess we'll not be carried off without some noise," laughed May. "I'd hate to be taken In my sleep, for I want to know something about going. Well. I'm sleepy, too. How lonely without papa and mamma." Half an hour later found Myrtle and May In their bed, the moon peeping In through the window to keep them com pany. But Just as they were going oft Into Slumber Land a strange tap, tap, tap sounded on the wall that divided their room from the storeroom. Both girls sat np in bed, staring Into one another's pale faces. "What was that?" wblspered May. 'ap. tap. tap. went the sound again, thre ?lmes as before. And it was on the wall dhct:y opposite their bed. Csvhl someone have gotten Into the storeroom? Bnt why should a housebreaker wish to make his .presence known by tapping on the wall of a room which he knew to be occupied. Thus reasoned the two frightened girls. Bdt what could be the meaning of that noise.' Then, as the tap. tap. tap came agr.ln Myrtle's eyes filled with a sudden horror, and putting her Hps to May's ear she whispered: "Maybe it's a a a ghost. I have never believed In sul-U things, and mamma and papa laugh at the mere mention of the name; but what else than s ghost would make that strange noise?" May shivered at her s'.ster's sugges tion, and Involuntarily dropped down Into bed again, covering up her bead. Not so with Myrtle. She wanted to hear nil that wna going on. Her fear would not allow of her hiding her head. On the other hand, she wanted to defend her sister and herself. With s mighty resolve she stepped from the bed snd tip toed to tbe wall, placing her ear against the spot where the sounds had Issued from. Tap, tap, tap. tap' This time four! Myrtle's blood chilled. What If a ghost one of those unearthly things that she bad heard about should be on the other side of that wall! Gathering all her courage she called out In a husky voice: "Who's there, and what's waotar' She almost fainted at ber own boldness, and stood leaning against Ibe wall for support. May bad peeped from the covers to see what ber 'sister was about. Had she gone mad ? Certainly, a girl . in ber senses would not be calling out to an unearthly thing ghost or devil like that Tsp, tap, tap, was toe only reply to Mrytle'S query. " But at this lnstsnt a mighty stamping and knocking on the door sounded down stairs, and Sam's voice wss calling for admittance. It didn't take Myrtle aud May an bour to get down to the ball door, and to tell Sam all about the gbost In the storeroom. "Well, we'll have that ghost dead or alive." declared old Sam. striding up the stairs and right Into the storeroom. Bat nothing could Induce the girls to sreom-p.-.ny him. and they stood shivering la the hall, waiting for Sam's dying shriek or bis live explanation. They lived many days daring those two minutes of Sam's stay in the storeroom. Then forth he came, a grin os his boorst face. "The clothesline bangs' on the wall next to your roera." be said, "and somebodr bas carelessly left the window of the storcreoin open. The wind blows In snd shakes the knotted end of the clothel'ne. maKirur it tap against the wail. It's ss ornery a ghost ss I've ever catched la ail my life, though they're all of a pat tern." "Sam. that's one on us," said Myrtie. 'Tlease let ns off Just ns easily as yon ran when yon tell papa and mamma atout it." And both girls joined Sam In a laugh that rang over the bouse, reaching even to the haunted storeroom where the clothesline had ceased to tap. seeing that Sam bad closed the window. And then peace and sleep reigned In the bouse, for tbe gboet bad departed and Sam bad returned. Gathering all Ler cosrag. ,! i.-U at. fx a leaky tsiiti -Wt tlei. .! vest's saattdl"
