Sunday's game between Mesa and Hayden, in the opinion of the specta tors, was by far the best of the sea son. While Hayden was beaten by a score of 4 to 2. the brand of ball put up by the mining town lads was a joy to the heart of the fan who knows ball at its best. Miller and Westfall, the battery for Hayden, were doing splendid work, the pitcher fanning Mesa's hard-hitters without mercy, while the fielding support was good. But those Mesa laddies; Oh Boy! how they played. Gill, the big moundsman, got better every throw, while Shum way, behind the bat, kept working as steadily as a Liberty motor. Never was there better outfield work, the long distance men running them down anywhere and spearing high-ups as though It were mere batting practice. Next Sunday it will be the same teams on the Hayden diamond, and if the Gate city lads win once more. Manager Dixon will need a number 10 hat Final Survey on Mesa Tempe Road.

" Sunday Baby Day Last Sunday must have been baby DAIRY TALKS No. 23 Pacific Creamery will continue to assist in building the dairy in dustry. Greater in vestments will be made as fast as growth demands. It is not often that a business enterprise takes the trouble to deny or explain unfounded re ports, on the basis that such reports will fail of results before any damage is done, and further more that such denial is paying too great a compliment to the disseminators of false reports. However, we shall step aside for once, and ab solutely deny the reports that "The Pacific Creamery is to close out its holding in the Salt River Valley and leave the state."" On the contrary it is the intention of the com pany to add to and enlarge its holdings as fast as the necessity demands. The investments of the Pacific Creamery in the Salt River Valley total more than one and one-half million dol lars ($1,500,000.00) and if the dairy business grows and prospers as we are sure that it will, we will double our holdings. We shall keep pace with all development of the industry, and work hand in hand with the dairymen, to the end that the very best condi tions be had both from a standpoint of produc tion and from a standpoint of market for the product Let no farmer or dairyman ever consider the possibility of reducing or eliminating his dairy herd for lack of a market or for any other reason. This department is maintained for the sole pur pose of building the industry and lending assist ance to any dairymen or rancher on any problem that confronts him. Our farm experts are at the call of anyone needing their services. They will visit any ranch and give personal assistance. Their services are free. Call, write, or phone.

CALIFORNIA il BUS SOU HERD OF FINE CATTLE NEAR PHOENIX FULL TITLE TO DEATH VALLEY BORAX F ELDS TO ORIGINAL FINDER Financial interests in the west and southwest were set aflurry when word came that full title in the great borax fields of Death Valley bad been awarded F. M. Smith by United States District Judge Oscar A. Trippet of Los Angeles. The decision involves prop erties whose valuation is estimated at between 120,000,000 and $100,000,000. The Death Valley properties for years have been the pivotal center about which has revolved the most desperate and interesting of legislative battles. They were located by F. M. Smith and W. T. Coleman and an in dustry of tremendous proportions, made famous by the "Twenty Mule Teams," was built up. These teams, which were used so extensively in the advertising campaigns of the concern, were used to haul the product from the mines, 170 miles to the railroad station at Borati. Following the successful launching of the boax enterprise, the mines were "jumped," according to Peck, on the ground that the title of Smith and Coleman was not proven, and a syn dicate was formed in Los Angeles to endeavor to wrest the title from the pioneer locators. Following this there were three years of litigation, during which John Ryan, manager of the Tonopah rail road, upon whom the original locators depended in a large : degree for the success of their case, died, and it be came necessary for the attorneys for Smith to scour tljp world for others who could tell the same fact that had been lost when death stilled the tongue of the star witness. It was a fight for a prize of millions and money was not spared nor legal talent overlooked in the struggle. In discussing the case Peck said: "It is a satisfactory ending to a very hard and involved case. It indicates that the future development of the Death Valley fields, which contain suf ficient deposits to supply the world for centuries, is assured." FARM3 AT $300 AN ACRE (Xebraoka State Journal.) Tecumseh, Neb. Prices on farm lends here, as elsewhere, have mounted high in the Inst six months, and es pecially during the last two. It is not an uncommon thing now for a good farm to change ownership on a $300 an acre basis. Six weeks ago Abe Semberg, a mer chant at Elk Creek, bought of Mrs. Fred Buerstetta. of this city a quarter section farm two miles south of Elk Creek, paying J112.50 an acre. He has sold the place to Carl Kruger for $212.50 an acre, a profit of $100 an acre with a forty days ownership. A local real estate dealer sold three quarter-sections of land in the northern part of the county last week, which brought $144,000. Charles W. Sapp has sold his quarter section farm three miles north of Tecumseh, to Clarence H. Blckel of Cook for $300 an acre. Forty years ago these very same lands were selling at from $4 to $7 an acre. ' ' ORliN TO WORK DONE BY LOCAf GRITTENTON 111! E There is located in Phoenix one of a chain of homes that was established by the late Charles N. Crittenton of New York City. Mr. Crittenton was led to Christian work through the death of his 4-year-old daughter, Flor ence, and he became interested in the rescue of fallen women. He establish ed the first home in New York and then extended the work until 63 homes had been founded in the United States and six in foreign lands. The work has been broadened until it includes that of prevention, which is possibly a more important feature than that of the original purpose. The local home was established in 1897 and has been doing its quiet, un ostentatious work ever since. It is largely maintained by contributions, although it cares for many cases com mitted by the various superior courts of the state under a contract author ized by a legislative act. The active work of this charity was greatly .interfered with by war de mands, but the management feels that the work should now be pushed with greater energy, and with this in view, Mrs. Nettie B. Atwater has been en gaged to act as field representative and she is now making a tour of the state and organizing circles in the various cities and towns. This charity is a peculiar one, ana one that must necessarily be conduct ed with perfect secrecy as to the case helped. Hence it cannot advertise what it has accomplished, but no more worthy institution exists anywhere. (The management of the Crittenton Home requests that this article be re printed by all the papers of the state.) TWO BOYS RETURN TO AND FACE CHARGE OF 1 MOTOR J. C. Dalton, IS yeais of age and J. T. Hamilton, not yet IS. have told the chief of police of Los Angeles that they will waive extradition and return to Phoenix to face the charge of lar ceny of the automobile belonging to A. A. Tribolet, according to a wire from Chief J. K. Home to Sheriff Mont gomery. In the message to Montgomery the California officer states that the ma chine cannot be driven to Arizona without repairs. Ernest Smith, deputy sheriff, left last night for the coast for the boys who will be returned at once. The Tribolet car was stolen several nights ago. At the time of the theft, the car was parked in Tribolet's yard back of his residence at 1539 West Washington street. One of the largest cattle transactions in the valley in some time was an nounced last night by C. W. Bowers, president of the Merritt Bowers com pany of Tulare, California, who stated that he had purchased the entire shorthorn herd of the Bartlett-Heard Land and Cattle company, numbering 146 head. The Merritt-Powers company is onef of the largest livestock concerns on the 1 coast and have previously purchased large consignments of Arizona cattle. Practically all of the stock bought yes terday has been sold in California with the exception of a carload of two-year-old heifers, which will be sent direct to Riverside for exhibitio. from there to Los Angeles, and lau to San Francisco. "In shipping the two-year-olds t the coast for exhibition," stated Mr. Merritt, "we are not going to try to conceal tne fact they are from Art zona. We are proud of it and are go ing to be sure that wherever they go on exhibition, everyone will know where they were raised. We always have thought this the finest place in Uie country in the world for that mat ter to raise cattle, and this herd will certainly prove our contention." The consideration for thj cattle was in the neighborhood of $30,000, accord ing to Mr. Merritt He is enthusiastic over cattle and stock conditions here and intends to return to Phoenix at state fair time to inspect the exhibits and possibly be an exhibitor himself. Mr. Merritt is thoroughly in favor or testing all beef animals for tuber, culosis before going on the market. "Every herd of cattle should be tested every year," said Mr. Merritt last night, "especially the dairy cattle, where there is so much more tuber culosis. The one way to protect the community and recompense the stock raiser for his loss is for the state to make an appropriation of so much per neaa zor each animal rejected." o MOTORISTS IN RECENT 11 iff!

HOW The Paraffine Comnanies Inc. helped develop the oil and . asphalt industry of Cahfornia m The tremendous growth of the oil and asphalt industry of California was due in a measure to The Paraffine Companies, Inc. How?, ( Black Paraffine9' Apparently Worthless In the early days, oil experts from the Pennsylvania fields, thought that the black viscous residue left after the lighter oils had been distilled from California petroleum was "black paraffine." But it was not like the paraffine they knew, and they considered it worthless. For a long time the oil industry was handicapped by the large quantity of this black residue. Roofings Felts Building Papers Waterproofing Materials Wall-Board Floor Covering Industrial Paints Box Board Paper Boxes Fibre Containers Its Great Value Discovered Then came Beardsley, an Eastern oil ex pert, and Pierce, a chemist, who resolved to find a use for it. They experimented cease lessly without result, until one day by acci dent they discovered that this "black paraf fine" would dissolve readily in that evil smelling liquid known as carbon bisulphide. Their search was at an end. They had made a paint which dried quickly and withstood the action of acids and alkalis. As a result of this discovery The Paraffine Paint Company was formed to manufacture the now famous "P & B" paints and a small plant was established in Oakland in 1884. OilWasDistiUedtoGet the Asphalt During the early life of The Paraffine Paint Com pany there was difficulty in securing enough "black par affine," or what was later discovered to be asphalt. The oil companies had trouble in supplying it, be cause it forced them to dis till a large quantity of the lighter oils in order to get the residue. And, they stated, there was little or no market for the distilled products! Thus, for a time, asphalt was the main product and the lighter oils the by-prod- l tlttl jl UM I Vpabco ucts. A curious situation in the light 0! present-day conditions. Growth of The Paraffine Paint Company Through the Company's success in mak ing paint, other uses for asphalt were sought and found, and it gradually extended its business. New products were brought out from time to time, such as "P & B" roofings the original ready roofing building papers, specialty paints and wall board, and later, floor coverings. The Paraffine Companies, Inc. Organized Built upon a solid foundation and a policy of high quality always, the Company grew and expanded until in November, 1917, The Paraffine Paint Company with other com panies was merged into The Paraffine Com panirs, Incorporated. Today this organiza tion is one of the largest industrial concerns in the West and the products of its fourteen great plants are distributed throughout vari ous parts of the world. Everybody on the Pacific Coast who has ever had anything to do with building con struction knows the names of the "P & B" products, Malthoid and Ru-ber-oid Roofings, as the standards of ready roofing.
