HOW MUCH LAND DO YOU OWN? The answer to this question generally tells the story of a man's prosperity. The- American farmer is today the biggest land V uyer in the world. He is the shrewdest land huyor, because he knows val ues. He is the most prosperous, BECAUSE HE' OWNS LAND. The men whrr have had the foresight to arquire rheap land are gettiitg their reward. And the man who now has the foresight to acquire Rood, low priced land will surely and quickly reap his reward. Yon can buy the richest land in the world today nt a few dollars per acre in MEXICO. Are you' (jo ins to let the opportunity pass, or are you going to acquire some of it now before that country becomes thickly settled by prosperous American people? It is up to you. We have some mighty interesting literature on this subject free for the asking. BISHOP . fiAUN 136 WEST WASHINGTON ST., PHOENIX. ARIZ. Why Not Save ftfloney by buying your Lumber of the new firm.

KHz-Mack, the copper expert, re turned last week from an extended i I trip into the Parker country, having spent most of his time about Bouse, but taking in the Bill Williams dis trict also. lie expresses himself as amazed at the evidences of mineral i wealth in all parts of the retrion. but especially nround Bouse. I "Keep your eye on Bouse," he said. "There's where things'll be doing pretty soon big things the biggest kind of . things. That's a truly great mineral country and Bouse is the natural center of the whole region the Mecca of all that great north-Yunia country desert empire of mountains and plains with its incalculable wealth of iron, lead, copper, gold, silver and cinnabar. All the roads of the desert and all the trails of the mountains radiate from Bouse. All the surrounding camps get their supplies from Bouse. All the mines that ship (only a few as yet) ship their ore from Bouse. "Of course Bouse Isn't as big a camp as Xew York not yet. It isn t even as big a camp as Los Angeles, but give it time, man; give it time. Already it's the biggest camp of its size In Arizona and it has got more population and a larger trade than either Xew York or Los Angeles had at its age. You can't call that a discouraging record for a modest little mining camp in the far-off desert wilds that ain't puttin' on no metropolitan airs," as they as sert, but just plugging along, putting their trust in the pick and the drill and the good old family Bible that rests in sacred dignity on the, rickety nt significance to the anxious little flrand Rapids marble-top, cen- prospector from an iron-stain de ter table.

Judg ment is the thing needed anil ifv judgment is enlightened by book learning so much the better, but without judgment judgment gained by hard and wide experience in the mud. It is small help to the an xious, weary-hearted prnspertor who has denied himself the comfort of the bottle to pay for nn expert report, to have a gifted squirt from the schools hand him out a discourse on the ered in his ground and the allophnnic and allomorphic condition of the minerals. What the poor devil wants is some thing in I'nited States language that he can understand and that will en courage him to work or help him to sell. A WORLD OF IRON. There Is a world of iron out in that Bouse country. It is mostly black hematite, but there Is a good deal of the red. too. Most all the rocks are masked by a surface var nish of one or the other kind, so that all look alike till you break them and get a fresh surface. Now, that iron varnish is a very different thing of radically diffcr- But in the mines in Bouse camp ' proper, the iron occurs, also mas- sive within the rocks cspecially within the limestones in solid bould ers and stringers and all sorts of contorted shapes, just as copper ores are "often found, especially the na tive copier ores of Michigan. This has resulted from what ' minerologists call "metasomatic- interchange", which in United ' States language means "solution and replacement atom by atom." It is rank cruelty to heave chunks of Creek like "metasomatic" at an anxious-hearted prospector who wants to understand but may be for ty miles from a dictionary. A GOOD SIGN.

"A mighty good story," says the Philadelphia Inquirer, "which ought to be read by a very wide circle."

The above figures are slightly under those of the previous month, caused by numerous delays on account of the installation of the new smelter stack. The company had use of but two furn aces and now there are three connect ed. Before the middle of August the fourth one will be connected and the new construction work completed. At present a small amount of flue dust can be seen around the works and when the new stack is finished it is predicted that it will disappear entire ly. Minor delays may occur during August, but it is more than probable that a larger output will be made than last month. The Shannon Copper company out putted its usual aveiage last month, the figures being 750 tons of Bessemer copper. The plant and mines are op erating steadily and are in excellent running order.
