The handsome now cement finished
brick so much admired by all lovers
of the homo beautiful on West Lyn
wood in Chelsea Place was purchased
this past week by .1. II. Mulrein, the
well known plumbing contractor. The
lot upon which the house stands is
a large one SO by 1",4. and the house
is conceded to be one of the most
completely furnished homes in Phoe
nix. It was built by the Home Build

first of the month, and it was then
it excited Mr. Mulrein's curiosity
and interest and he decided it com
bined all the features he desired in
si house. Few houses in Phoenix
have a larger floor space, which in
itself is an attraction.
The interior commodiousnoss of the
house is such as to give the largest
possible living" space yet provide
numerous cuploards and closets. A
separate screen porch lor the kitchen
is also a feature. The wall decora
tions in the house are something
new in rhoenix and add greatly to
the general appearance of the in
terior. I
Mr. Mulrein will further improve i
the property with a garage and a
servant's home and laundry. The !
purchase price was $6000. -

The Chance of a Lifetime
The entire state of Arizona has a population of
less than 300,000 a population very much
smaller than that of the City of Los Angeles.
The westward trend of the people of the United
States is greater today than ever before; with
better transportation service and the opening
of the Panama canal, the peoples of the world
will flock to the great southwest.
A Better Chance Today
Better than the small investor had in California
20 years ago. Immigrants must come to a land
where opportunities are greatest where the
population is least. What does this mean to
you as an investor in the new town of Scotts
dale, the greatest fruit center in Arizona?,
Greater and faster will be the growth of Ari
zona compared with California of the past; and
greater still will be your chance of duplicating
the many fortunes made by the investors in the
country towns on the coast. Your chance is in
Scottsdale now. Let us tell you about it.
The Maricopa Mid Summe - Ex
hibit of the Farmers' Institute is
scheduled for July the 10th and lllh,
and work is now actively being done
on the matter of obtaining entries,
and the promise of entries, from the
many interested farmers in the val
ley. Professor A. M. McOmie, who
has charge of the premium com
imttee wo'k, htm just published a
small pamphlet, giving an idea of
what can be expected in the line of
speeches as well as premiums dur
ing the work of the institute.
A number of well-posted, logical
talkers have been selected to fill up
the program with speeches bearing
upon the problems to be encountered
by the farmer in the ordinary daily
toil Among these are W. V. P.
McConnell, whose knowledge of the
dairy farmers' needs is especially
good, and who will talk on the re
lation of the dairy herd to rural
life. John Norton will speak on
"Cattle Feeding" and X. D. Zanders
or. "Thrift." while J. S. Griffin
"Alone" will speak on "Real Estate."
J. B. Cook is to tell about the
canning industry and the prospects
for the successful launching of a
p. ofitable project along those lines
in the valley. J. E. Mclain will
speak on "Exhibits," while P. I. Ed
son, who has worked so hard in be
half of the farmers' extension work
in Arizona, will talk on "The Prog
ress of the Maricopa County Farm
ers' Institute." The program will be
enlivened by songs and a short talk
by Edwina Howard. A reading by
Neida Scudder and a solo by J. Elma
Johnson will also be rendered.
One of the features of the discus
sion will be that led by Mrs. E. N.
Phillips, general secretary of the Y.
W. C. A., who will speak on the sub
ject. "The Y. W. C. A. as a Factor
in the Community." Mrs. Phillips

a booster for organizations of this

A wedding that came as a surprise
to many was solemnized in Phoenix
last week when Josejihine Poscoo,
proprietor of a local store and a
well known Indian trader, and John
Derrick, the store manager. were
united in marriage by Itev. Pay
Clarkson Ilaiker.
The couple went to Phoenix early
in the week, leaving here at differ
ent times. Both have lived in the
Valley for many years. Mr. Derrick
is a charter member of the local
Knights of Pythias, while Mrs. Der
rick is known and beloved by hundreds
of Indians on the Pima reservation.
ciation has inaugurated a series ot
" Poultry Men's Kxperience Meetings."
At one of these meetings which
was recently held in the AVater Users'
Temple at Phoenix a goodly num
ber of the leading jioultrymen came
together to discuss the problem of
"Hatching .and rearing chicks."
Among other facts which were
brought out was the wonderful In
crease in popularity of the brooder
stove. This was due to the great
success u hich its users were having
in the rearing of large numbers of
chicks at a minimum of exjiense.
One parly reported having lost 50
chicks by accident and twenty-five
otherwise out of :;mmi raised under
two of these stoves. Several others
reported almost equal results. One man
who has been in the poultry business
here lor nine years has tried almost
every method of brooding with varv-
iing success. Last year he used his
first brooder stove and this year in
stalled two more. The capacity of
.these stoves is rated at I.'ipO chicks
'and many j.oople who wish to raise
every one does not raise'
the lirooder stove method
were advocates of all other
is well. It may surprise !
some to learn that there is a hot i
water heated brooder house here in !
the valley. This was described and
its owner advocated it as the ideal
method for the man who had only
one or two incubators to depend upon.
He used a gasoline heated brooder
which is so arranged that its heat can
be proportioned to the number of
chicks heing hovered.
Still another method for the small
raiser was described and advocated
by a representative of another Poul
try Supply house. This was a inst
able hover for 10 chicks which could
be set in any building without al
teration. The representative had one
of the hovers with him and aroused
no little interest. One of the members
present had been using this style of
brooder and told of his successes
and described a colony house he had
built for its use.
As usual the fireless brooder came
in for its share of discussing and
cussing. One would naturally think
our warm climate would be ideal for
this method but most of those pres-

that this very fact of our warm days
rendered this method in-effective on
account of the cold nights and morn
ings. Several other methods of brooding
were mentioned and several more
might have been had the meeting not
have been called short lor lack of
time to finish. Besides telling of the
methods of brooding many told of
their experiences in feeding and a few
of those who were big enough not
to be scared told of some of their
misfortunes. None of us have reach
ed perfection in this line as well as
any other yet: we know our weak

things from each other yet. So we
