Asia. In rains lor hundreds of years,
it is again living. The master build

sign, who planned its towers, domes
and divers details, are not known,
bat their work will live long to tell
the story of an early labor of love.
From Tucson we journey south,
fToing through Tombstone. Who has
net heard of Tombstone? We know
now why it was called Tombstone.
The conglomeration of rocks, granite
boulders, resembling nothing more
than tombstones, are in evidence in
every direction. No wonder the
wandering prospector, in deciding
upon a name for the locality, de
ckled on Tombstone.
Prom Tombstone we go to Bisbee,
the great mining town. Here arc
extensive mining interests, world
lamed for their importance. The
town is built in a narrow canyon
or course to be near the shafts of
the different mines. It is a verv
interesting place to see.
from here we journey to Douglas,
which is built on the border. Douglas
is called the 'Smelter Pity." Here
the ore from the Bisbee mines is
turned into copper. Across the line
from Douglas is Agua Prieta Black
Water, is the meaning. Several skir
mishes occurred at this Mexican
t wn at different times during the
years of revolution in Mexico and a

Douglas.

another direction. This time we fol

have Mesa, then instead of tinning

and take the trip to the Koosevol'

Straight as the arrow flight to the
foot of Superstition mountain, rugged,
rough, and rising abruptly out of a
level plain tins rock mountain,
sheer-walled and savage, appears to
e hock tlu way. But around the foot
the road winds and we find a nar
iow way not before seen. We are
now winding and turning with easy
grade, ever ascending, and always
exclaiming as some new wonder is
onrolled to view in this panorama
like succession of surprises. No de

color, contour and change that spring

chasm, dark and threatening, then a
clear space affording a view of rock
ridges, saw-toothed anil tinted every
shade. The road at one point skirts
great canyon. A thousand feet he
low is Fish creek, and the little sta
tion house, where we are to lunch,
looks like a toy. The road is wide
: lid with easy grade, and the descent
f a thousand feet is quickly made.
After the meal we are quiekly or.

course along the bank. It is like a
friendly baas stream of the east.
Here it rushes over a rough bed of
boulders and now flows silently be
tween steep wails. Tip' road winds

There are other roads to travel,

farm belt we journey through the
desert across the country in a
straight line until we reach Agua
Caliente Springs. These springs are
very important. They have curative
properties which are recognized by
many. The time will come when
they will be developed to the utmost.
At present there is a fair hotel and
the water can be utilized for bathing,

many very wonderful cures are al
ready accredited to their influence.
After Agua Caliente, the road goes
again almost due west to Yuma,
built on the banks of the Colorado
river, and across the river from Cali
fornia. The road is fair; some sandy
places, but the bond issues of Maii
copa and Yuma counties will make
it a road worth while. There is an
other road which runs west to Cali
fornia. This road follows the same
course as the one to Yuma to Palo
Verde, then turns north and across
the desert, crossing the Colorado
river at Khrenbeig. This road is not
used as much as the Yuma road,
and the plan to make the Yuma
l'hocnix road a good one. with money
from the bond Issues, will lead more
travel over the lower roael.
(ioing back to the Roosevelt road,
we find that on reaching Olobe the
road divides, one branch going west
to Rice, and then turning nortn
through the While mountain coun
try. This is a very lovely part of j
Arizona. Great forests and splendid
camping places, trout fishing and
hunting abound. From Globe the
other branch goes south, touching
many of the towns in the southeast
era portion of the state and then en- i
tering New Mexico.

DRY CLEANING TALK
THE PROCESS DESCRIBED
li is unfortunate thai the general public does nol understand the care that
must needs be Taken and the responsibility that rests with the cleaner who
does his work conscientiously and wel L, otherwise they would never trust
their belongings to any hut a thorough master of the business and one whose
moral and financial responsibility was unquestioned.
"Dry Cleaning," in its true sense means, first the elimination of everyspeck
f dust; second, the thorough cleaning bv some volatile liquid that !
ins
tin
necessary detergent powers without affecting the shape, color or sizing of
the garment; third, the elimination of all obnoxious odors and the removal
of all spots or stains not affected by the second treatment, but by no means
the least important, the expert finishing of the garment.
It is readily conceived that these processes must needs lie successfully con
summated with the aid of mechanical appliances (and this equipment is
both extensive and expensive), the prospective patron can easily determine
the establishment to patronize in order to insure satisfactory results.
if the term "Dry Cleaning" w;is more fully understood and not so often con
founded with the mere brushing and occasional removal of the more promi
nent stains, as is offered by some unreliable firms as "Dry Cleaning," the
life and usefulness of many garments now discarded as valueless would be
prolonged.
