A special edition of the Arizona Daily Star has reached Phoenix and is a publication designed to prove of in terest and value to many people. It is arranged in magazine form and has about K", panes of reading matter and pictures. The contents of the book are histor ical and encyclopaedic, designed to give briefly the history of the various counties dnl larger communities of the territory, and the story of the re sources and products of the respective counties. In many instances there is tabulated data of use I.T reference and the text matter tells the story of the towns and thtir institutions and the stories of the agricultural, mineral and grazing development of the country. Some space is given to biography di rect while most of the number is more or less biographical, telling of the lie n who have figured in the develop ment of the country and in the admin istration of its government, from time to time. Much space is devoted to the territorial gocerp.ment from its earliest days to the present time and there are nriny contributions from well known Arizonians in the edition. Primarily the number is more a rec ord of the past ten years which is gone into quite thoroughly, more so than the previous history. The pur pose of the book is to set forth the g'itness of Arizona in every way, em phasizing the demand for statehood, which demand is the text of the pub lishers in their first page introduction in the following languages: " Refuting the statements often made in congress that Arizona was not ready for statehood, single and alone, and as an evidence of our resources, rapid growth and development, these pages are published." The most space is given to Pima county which the edition features es pecially but all the counties are liber ally treated and hundreds of pictures liven up the text. Maricopa county and the city of Phoenix are given much prominence and there are many pictures of Maricopa county scenes in the paper. o Foxy German Emperor. The kaiser, finding himself isolated as the result of French am Uritish diplomacy, debarred on every hand from territorial expansion in Europe, had dreamed of a commercial empire in Asia. Hut Wilhclm is the kind of a man who prefers to see things with his own eyes, and that is why. in the spring of 1S!i7. he - ,,ut on his spectacular tour of :.., .Near East, lie rode through Palestine in a the atrical uniform made for the occa sion, with a ?reat cavalcade behind him. At Jerusalem he laid the cor nerstone of a (German church; at Haifa he addressed a great assem blage of German colonists; from Da mascus he carried away with him the priceless furnishings of the pal ace which he occupied, loaned for the occasion by the neighboring pashas; at Ba'alliek a peculiarly hideous tab let was placed in tin- Temple of Venus to mark his visit, and so he came to Stam'ooul. where Abdul-llamid, his friend and brother, awaited him.. Imagine, if you can, a more queerly assorted pair. The sultan, crafty, cautious, timid, patient; the kaiser, bombastic, blatant, hot-headed, domi neering. This meeting of the mon archs was, as curious as any in mod ern history the one a ruler in spite of his physical cowardice, and the shrewdest diplomat in Europe; the other a sort of footlight king. Hum ble, patient, and furtive, the master of Turkey listened, while the war lord thundered. Always he dilated on his great idea, the Drang nach Osten that onsweep to the east of (ierman imperialism. This strangely mated pair, these masters of east and west, made a compact that the one would abstain from intervening in Crete and would use his influence to obtain the withdrawal of the inter national soldiery from the island, and that the other would give him. in payment, a right-of-way for his rail road across Turkey-in-Asia. And so they arranged it between them, the bilious, sallow-faced, silent little man with his eternal cigarette, and the stoulish, aggressive, domineering Teu ton who puffed intermittently at . a black cigar. . . The sultan had, indeed, bartered a kiitgdnni for the kaiser's friendship. To the (ierman concessionnaires was given the exclu sive right to cultivate the land within this railway zone ls.BHO square miles in all. ami every foot of it, to all in tents and purposes, Herman soil to work the mines and the forests with in this radius; to grow' wheat, tobac co, and cotton; to colonize, and to navigate the streams, not to mention various subsidiary rights. The con cession admits, moreover, of the con . essionnaires' utilizing all waters along the route for electric purposes; and such power will eventually be used, it is planned, for lighting their towns and running their factories.

' Keegan's Pal," a new p,ay by Paul Wit staclf was presented June 7 ! at the Chicago opera house, Chicago, by Joseph AI. Cuites, with Kminctt Corrigan as the star, and the next day it was apparent that play and star and achieved a smashing hit. James o'Donnell Lteiinett of the liei-or-I braid calls Mr. Corrigan "the best actor in America." Asliton Stevens in the Examiner says, "Koegan's Pall" is a drama, of pulse nrr brains . . . it strikes life with a hard and living punch." In the Tribune, Mr. Hub bard recorded "a opular success 'Keegan's Pal" acts well and contains a story which held the audience keenly interested and made the on lookers feel and be moved." The Post declared that "all lovers of de tective stories would find 'Keegan's Pal' quite he thing." CharWs W. Collins in the Inter-Ocean said: "Em mett Corrigan is an actor of owf r and in 'Keegan's Pal' his performance is worthy of his brilliant reputation. The play is full of emotional scenes of strong acting value. "The Ameri can said, " 'Ket gan's' Pal' is a power-, fill drama jt intensely virile atmos phere and tenacious grip upon the human sympathies. Mr. Wilstaeh has made his play a new thing of inter est presenting a story which moves and makes the auditor feel almost with more intensity of. emotion than the players. It gets over the foot lights and around and through the crowd and grasps the audience and brings it to be part of the storyand to ilve and feel its emotions." Amy Leslie found "Keegan's Pal" to be "both stirring and American, and 'it is" original, splendidly written and al most sensational in its dramatic hard ihood. It made one of the most sub stantial, plainsaiiing hits of the year." And this after all the successes of the year had been seen. As to "Lo" in Low Comedy. An American Indian, employed in scenes and situations of comic grotes tuerit, is an important character in ' Lo," the musical comedy In prepara tion by Franklin P. Adams and . Henry, as to libretto, and A. Palwin Sloane, as to music. His being a college-bred Indian recalls the first and only previous attempt to use the type for comic purposes by a native play wright a light lera called "Big Pony, the Gentlemanly Savage," pro duced in 1S87 in New York City by X. C. (ioodwin. Among that actor's ad vertising devices are frames of photo graphs showing him in various roles of the past, and one pictures t'oodwin as Pig i'ony. attired in faultless even ing clothes and moccasins! The work was far ahead of its time, as to. its satirical aspect, and failed, though (Ioodwin has never been funnier than in his role of the "reclaimed" redskin. A. C. Wheeler was the librettist. He was at the time the most widely read of our drama-critics, nut excepting even William Winter. He wrote of the stage under the name of N'ym Crin kle." and. years after he had supposed ly retired to private life, he re-emerged as a writer on nature topics under the name of "Mohray " W. S. Gilbert had preceded Wlieeler in the use of the loAcomedy Indian in light opera; but Gilbert's Indians there were three of Uiem were undi luted savages. The work was "Prin cess Toto." now well-nigh forgotten. It was written some time previously to Gilbert's union w ith Sullivan, and hail .1 very 'pretty score by Fred Clay. Gil bert and Clay quarreled whe" the piece was at the height of its ipular ity; and the former, in a character istic outbreak of teiner. took legal means to prohibit the further perform ance of the work in Great Dritain. HiuL, to make assurance surer, sought to de stroy every copy of the work then ex tant. Some copies had, however, found their way to this country', where there was not at the time federal protection to foreign authors, so that "Princess Toto" was from time to time the sub ject of' revival. Two of the three In dians were respectively named Pish Tush and Pooh-P.ah names that Gil bert afterward employed for two of the Titipu noblemen in "The Mikado," in the belief that his previous use of them had been forgotten. As a serious or sentimental comie r)era figure the Indian has been more liberally employed. The Rostonians. when at the height of the great vogue that was their lot through the popu larity of "Robin Hood," produced not fewer than three ambitious 'operas in which our aborigines figured con spicuously. One was "Priseilla." which made employment of the legend of John Alden and his vicarious wooing of the puritan maid; another was known as both "In Mexico" and "A War-Time Wedding": and the third was called "The Ogallallas." Xone of the three was successful. Indeed, American play-goers have sfcown very little sentimental interest in the Indian as a stage figure, and "Strongheart" stands out from a long list of plays as the only one to succeed with an Indian hero. A notable failure among attempts to stage the Indian was "The Redskin," in which all the characters were aborigines. As sub sidiary or incidental figures, the In dian has often served well, both pic torially and dramatically, as In "The Octoroon," "The Squaw Man" and "The Girl I Left Behind Me." Paul Armstrong's "The Renegade" was 4. recent Chicago attempt to give the red man sentimental value in the drama. A much better play than either "The Renegade" or "Strongheart," of cog nate theme, calbnl "Northern Lights," failed a decade before "Strongheart" was tried. Frederick Donaghey in the Chicago Evening Post. "The Story of My Life." When I was a child it was my great est ambition to become a lion-tamer. Hut my mama wouldn't let me. And then it was my ambition to become a detective My papa's best friend was the chief of police1, and through his In fluence I obtained a position as detec tive. The first day the captain told me that a gentlemanly criminal had escaped he showed me his picture anil he wanted me to cateh him. I caught him. n the way to the station we passed a restaurant and the gentle manly criminal said that he was very hungry, and because he was one of the most lovely criminals I ever heard of. I said to him; "Very well; go inside and I will wait for you out here." I must have waited half an hour and he did not conic nut. So I went inside and said to the proprietor: "Did you see a gentlemanly criminal?" "Why, yes," said he: "he has just gone out the back way," "So I had to catch him again the nest day. And on the way to the sta tion we passed that restaurant again, anil again he said that he was very hungry. "Very well." I said, "go in side and I will wait for you." But this time I was clever and I, ran around the back way. I must have waited half an hour oh! longer. And I finally went inside and asked the proprietor. The gentlemanly criminal had gone out the front way. So I had to catch him the next day; and on the way to the sjation we passed that res taurant again. He said he was very hungry. And because he was such a gentlemanly criminal I said: "Oh. very well" (but to myself. "This time he's not going to fool me.") Sot said to him: "I will go inside and get you something to' eat and you can wait out here. And then I became an artist. Hy. Mayer, in "Success Magazine." o A Brief Effort.
