Section Two THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JAN UARY 1, 1910 FOREST SERVICE IS TAKEN TO TASK FOR UTEST'DISCOeY According to Col. A. F. Banfa. the T'nitcd States forest service found something which was not really lost whfn it reported the existence of the f ills on the Little Colorado which had never been named. The news of the discovery was sent out from Albuquer que a couple of weeks ago and has giv en rise to suggestions for naming th l.ills. Col. Banta, writing to the Pres cott Courier of the falls, said: ITesoott, Arizo- Dec. Z2, 3J1S. Kditor Courie- Dear Sir The above clipping 'which has be-'n going the rounds of the Ari zona newspapers is erroneous to my personal know ledge. In J.S.'.l, c'apt. 1. Pitgrraves. T. K. m.uie lis "crimp ir at the falls de scribed in the above clipping, named them (."a-scudc. i-'or the past fifty years these talis have been marked upon al! maps, and known to the. writer and I others, as the "Grand Fells" of the I.it ; tie Colorado river. The Grand Canyon i of the Little Colorado begins at these i falls, and in grandeur ae second to the i Big Colorado itself. Had the "great I explorer" of the forest service gone j further down the river he would have i made another "wonderful discovery" in the Black Falls, which are fifteen or twenty miles below the Orand Falls. ; The Indian trail from the Moipiis Yii i lace coins westward crosses the river 1 at the Klack Falls. Lieutenant Ives crossed still lower clown, a little east of the Black Mesa. Tn 1ST:! the -writer was employed as guide for Lieut. Ceo. II. Wheeler in his 'explorations west of the 100th merid ian" and led that outfit from the Mo quis across the Pesieto Pint do (Painted Desert) to the above men tioned Grand Falls. Without making measurements, the writer estimated the height at 100 to 110 feet; however, about fifty feet below the top in a bench, perhaps six feet w ide, and from this " bench" to the bottom i.-i perhaps sixty feet more in all 100 to 110 feet fall. 'At the bottom are several !arg, tanks, which have been worn into the solid rocky bottom by the flood waters of past centuries. Evidently the forest service is a bit shy on topographical knowledge, as otherwise its emplovees would not be guiltv of sending out such nonsensical j stuff. ' Tours trulv. A. F. HAXTA.

Within the past lew years the eanta- loupe crowing industrv has sprung up I I in this valley, and is fast ''econune; one ' i of the main agricultural activities. Two j Kinds of the succulent melons ar. j erown in this icinity. the Kinky Fori! :nlld the Pink Meat." The nn-at of lie: I former is of a yellow c olor. The meat ! of the jatur is of a red color, from i which it derives its name, 1'inl; Meat i Both varieties are highly listed at the breakfast table, and nowhere are they i grown more delicious than in this j valley. j ! Probably the greatest growing center is in tho vicinity of Glcndale, where I ' many hundreds of acres are planted to 1 cantaloupes each'year. At Six Points, i in the outlying farming lands near the state fairgrounds, is another great ce.n , ter, where hundreds of carloads of can 1 taloupes are grown each season. An i other center is around Mesa where i great quantities of the melons are I taised annually, j B Thin- Here i The cantaloupe industry is a big , thins for the Salt Kiver valley. It re- quires a vast amount of planning am: j planting in advance. In autumn, local railroad officials make arrangements for the storing tip I of ice to be used when the melons are i shipped out in the hot weather. To ! this end the local ice plants store away a certain amount of ice each day dur 1 inff the fall and winter, and when the ; harvest comes, h:ive plenty of the re t frigernting material on hand for im . mediate use in refrigerator cars, in ; which the cantaloupes are shipped. : At the same time the representatives I from the bijf eastern concerns contract I for the crops of the farmers in the val ; ley. The farmers must begin at once to prepare me iana, ana m many cases are financed by the contractors. When their melons are delivered at the load ing point, they often receive p-rt of the money due them upon delivery at the final destination. i In :h" end. the melon eron is har vested in time for the planting of (t j crop of milo maize. I U. S. Issues Bulletin j The federal government, being vitally j interested in the cantaloupe industry j aids the'big contractors and fanners by . issuing a daily bulletin, telling where j when, and in what quantities canta i loupes are needed. j The. entire crop moves out in July, i and much outside labor is imported to handle the hauling harvesting and ! shipping. The Arizona cantaloupes arc ; better than those Town in the Imper 1 ial valley, which is another great can j taloupe producing country, but are not j grown so extensively as yet. There are three big contracting enm I panics who operate in the Salt River i valley. W. S (loldsworthy, of the local j railroads, has prepared an outline of I the number of acres that will be ; planted this year and the number of ; cars shipped out of the. valley last year 1 by these contractors. ; Some Large Shippers e rute.u teiu and oitolk last year shipped 4ifl cars of cantaloupes from Six Points and :-iuu from Glendale. They have contracted with vallev farmers for 700 acres at Six Toints and 6C0 acres at GIrndale this season. Weaver and company last year shipped from Mesa, where they oper ated at the time 400 cars of canta loupes. This season they have con tracted for 600 acres near Phoenix. Amican Brothers and company which has never before operated in this vicin ity, has contracted for ?.oo acres of land this season near Phoenix. 4 lint rxk ?f tf- 7 1 S -?.L-IHII II.

VAR HAS TAUGHT WOMEN ROW TO DRESS One of the best known of the French Academicians said in public the other day: "There is no reason why a wom an should he unbecomingly dressed, however bad the times." lie also spoke of the rage for dress before the war, and said that women had now become reasonable and followed fash ion within due limits. The domestic instincts of French men encourage w-omen to cultivate home graces, including dress in all its refinements. Consequently, even while working hard, women have kept neat. At tea more well dressed women are seen than anywhers else. All the en tertaining that is done is done at home quietly, and dress is becoming, but not elaborate. At no restaurant or thea ter are there elti borate gowns or coif fures, but at afternoon tea women are as well dressed as in times past. Satin rind fur have been noticeable ot late.

Dear Sir: Replying to your in quiry regarding Capitol Silo built on our ranch at Palo Verde; will say that wc are well satisfied, with it and consider it the best solo for the money that can be built in this Valley. "We can recommend it to any one who wants a good silo. Carpenter & "Work, W. S. Work. sometimes lightly, sometimes lavishly trimmed. The big collar is general, and the broad band of fur around the bottom of the coat, either all around or in part. Thovery short skirt is worn no more and skirts reach a lit'le lower than the ankle. Neither are they too tight, but straight falling draperies, with a tendency, like, the hats, to droop be hind. Indoors all sorts of blouses and tunics are worn; the simple coat dress, all in one piece, is highly fashionable, and over it is worn the winter coat. A black satin skirt anda tunic of black and white mousseline de soie, trimmed with fur or jet, go well together, and with a black velvet a satin tunic looks well. Ivong sleeves are general, but the Chineses leeve with open, falling cuff grows in favor. In detail and in gea- eral, dress tends toward enfettered movements, without tightness or cum bersomedraperies; the high collar tloS not pinch, the waist belt does not squeeze, the skirt does not flow nor does it confine, and the sleeve, al though clinging, is not tight fitting. There is, in fact, nothing unpleasantly exagerated in this season's fashions. I . - 51 BIG LOSS BY DESTROYING MANY PREDATORY ANIMALS The report of the campaign in this stale against predatory animals for November has just ben submitted y SI. K. .Musgrave, predatory animal in spector under the bureau of biological survey, department of ngriifu'.ture. A total of Ih'J animals were killed as follows: Wolves, 2; coyotes. 107; bob cats, IS; foxes, 22; skunks, L'2; badgers 5; porcupines. S. and raccoons L'. Tho report states that the work for! the month was not up to the standard, : owing to wenthcr conditions in part. There bad been severe snowstorms in the mountains and freezing weather in the higher ranges. Some of the! trappers reported that their traps had been frozen down for das. But the fact that two very destruc tive wolves had been killed in the Patagonia region has justified the cost of the campaign for the month. These wolves for two years had been defying hunters and killing cattle. The dam age which it is estimated they would have accomplished in another year would have been 300 per cent more than it has cost the government to exterminate all the animals that have been destroyed in November. The cost for the month was $1. 34 1.33. During this time seven government hunters were employed and seven state hunters. Mr. Musgrave states that he has had a good deal of dif ficulty in securing good trappers in this state, partly because of the high prices of furs and partly because there are not many men here who are ex perienced in trapping. letters of inquiry with blank forms attached were sent out to a large num ber of stockmen designed to elicit estimates of the value of stock which had been destroyed by predatory ani mals in one year. Replies had been received from 06 of them, mostly small stockmen.. The losses reported were as follows: By coyotes, $12,240; by wolves, $5,300; by lions, $2,111; by bears. $525. Lettera have come from stockmen urging assistance against the depredations ot animals. BIG BARGAIN A full year's subscription, both daily and Sunday for $6.50.
