William Palmer .jr.; of Rincon, N. M., was a Phoenix visitor yesterday and the day before, leaving- for home last night. He" stopped off here en route home from, the coast, merely to satisfy his curiosity and learn CUT GLASS Nothing Sets Off Fresh Fruit for the Luncheon LIKE CUT GLASS. Wre carry the finest line In Arizona Hawk's the latest cre ations from the world's best makers. FAHILDLKERAN y GftviPANT "The Store of Qualities." from a personal inspection what the Salt River valley Is like. Mr. Palmer is a water user and an officer of the water users' organiza tion, under the Elephant Butte or Rio Grande project of the reclama tion service. His purpose outside of mere curiosity was to compare notes, see how things pertaining to irriga tion are done in this valley that he might take advantage of any new ideas, and incidentally to Inspect the valley of which he has heard so much. He was given a ride to the Granite Reef dam on the north side and back on the south side via Mesa with Engineers Hill and Reed. He said that though he was quite well informed concerning the valley by reading about it, he was still sur prised at the extent of it and the almost perfect way in which the irri gable lands lay. The evidence of fer-e tility were ample and he has no doubt of the claims made for the cropping resources of the soil. Comparing it with his own country he said he believed their soil, some of It, at least, was as good If not better, it being an alluvial deposit along the Rio Grande, but nowhere have they a large quantity in one place, the Rio Grande project being a long shoe string of soil reaching from El Paso north for a great dis tance. He says they raise as big crops as anybody when they get the water and they are now like this val ley, hopeful that that question is practically settled. Mr. Palmer was not only compli mentary in his opinion of the valley but quite enthusiastic over Phoenix as an up-to-date American city, and even congratulated the people on th'i climate. While It is confessedly hot Just now it Is hot everywhere but not nearly so oppressive as in most places.

(Special Correspondence of The Republican.) Reports are bein circulated to the effect that J. Meek & Co. have suc ceeded, through Mr. O'Kourke. who is in Washington, in inducing the government heads to allow the wwrk on the dam to proceeed during tht hot months. A telegram to that ef fect is reported to have been received by the man in charge here during Mr. O'Rourke's absence. It is also reported, but not authentic, that the government engineers on the ground are seriously against the continuation of work on the wall of the dam dur ing the hot weather, but want to shut down during the hot spell us speci fied in the contract, which calls for a cessation of work after a certain altitude had been obtained, during a couple or three months in the hot test portion of the year. The cement work on the tunnel un der the supervision of Mr. Gillis, still continues, and the cementing of the floor of the tunnel is to be carried out of and beyond the mouth of the tunnel, so as to carry the water well past all places where it could do any possible damage. The Arizona Ga zette had a splendid picture of the dam from the down river side and also showing a part of the lake sur face beyond, but a very small frac tion of the water. Their picture wa perfect and furnished them by Dwight B. Heard, but their descrip tion underneath was in part highly at variance with the true facts and measurements on file at government headquarters. Of course, we have to make allowances at times for errors of type and mistakes of reporters In gathering facts; but a school boy, with the figures given, on a second reading of their article, could not help but see that there was something de cidedly wrong with it. They state that "there Is impounded a lake fif teen miles long, from one-half to one and one-half miles wide, or 42,000 acres of water." Granted as to the length and breadth given. But how In hades they can they get 42,000 acres in that area is what is puzzling us. The infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Dennis died Wednesday afternoon of inflammation of the stomach and bowels. The funeral was held this (Thursday) afternoon. The child be ing buried here. We can but sym pathize -with them at their loss. Mrs. Millie Edwards of Globe has Joined her husband here at Roose velt. Mr. Edwards is working for J. M. O'Rourke & Co. Mr. Bingham, who has been teach ing the Indian school here for the last several months and whose labors are now completed for this term, was so unfortunate as to lose her tent and all its contents last Saturday afternoon by fire. Everything she had was destroyed except that which she was wearing at the tinle. The origin of the fire is a mystery, as there was no fire in or about the house previous to Its catching fire. It was the more unfortunate, as she had only two more days' stay at Roosevelt at the time. Bud Norton, who recently bought the Globe and Payson line, has been kept busy during the last week get ting the line regulated between Pay- son and Camp Verdee. This part of the line has always been sub-let to other parties up to this July 1, but as they wanted a large Increase in their monthly stipend, being more than he could afford to pay, he will place his own horses and men to cover this section of the rovie. Young Dee Uorton will be placed in charge, while Walter Norton will undertake the Roosevelt and Payson division, leaving Bud free to look after the Globe-Roosevelt end of, the line. Joe Phelps will handle the ribbons on Stage No. 2 between the two latter points. Meanwhile Dad Joslin, 7S years old, is holding down Joe's place for him, while Joe is down helping Mesa to Celebrate the Fourth of July. Yesterday and- today were both scorchers in the way of heat up to 3 o'clock in the afternoon, when a welcome thunder storm each day cooled things down for a couple of hours, only to be succeeded by very hot nights. The thunderstorms are making their appearance early this year. Usually during the last three years they have held off till about the middle or latter part of July, but commenced this year on the last day of June. And very welcome they are. Any one wishing to experience a sudden storm at sea and not wish ing to have to go as far as our nearest seaboard, need only make the trip to Roosevelt and get out In a boat on the lake between 3 and 5 in the afternoon in time to catch the fierce blow that precedes all thunderstorms In this vicinity, and he will experience all the different degrees.' of - a first-rate Imitation, with all the qualms attendant on a storm at sea, with the waves rolling high and fast and flecked with foam, in great curves reaching from shore to shore.
