the state prison at Florence is beln
conducted by Warden Powell, who has
been in charge since January, 1913.
In place of the old mawkish haphazard
method, he has, however, insisted' on
discipline and order in the prison and
the result is that there has been a
revolution in the morale of the men
and the appearance of the institution.
In putting into effect his ideas of
absolute control by the officials of the
prison over the inmate, the warden has
had the co-operation of virtually all
his prisoners for the pat year and the
result is a clean, orderly, sanitary, at
tractive institution of the kind where

Dr. Robert A. A Hon. secretary and

ing corporation, and James G. Simp
son have Just returned from a business
rip to the mine, 57 miles out on tnj
Apnche trail, and four miles souui.
Thev carried to the crew at the prop-
rty the first news of the result of the
assay made ot tne ore rt--fi:n.y en
countered, which even without an nssay
gave promise of being of an excep
tionally high grade. The assay showed
the presence of gold to the value cf
$408.40 per ton.
According to Charles A. Dieni of tho
Arizona assay office, who made tne
repiort. this rich value v.aa found i. a
rhyolite breccia containing oxides cf
iron and manganese. These oxides
are not in perfect crystalline form, but
appear to be limonite and pyholusite.
Panning failed to reveal the presence
of an unusual quantity of gold and it
was not until the ore had been sub
jected to intense heat that its real
value became apparent.
The latest visit of Dr. Alton and Mr.
Simpson to the mine served to indicate
to them, they reported that there is a
vast quantity ot this class of ore pres
ent in the ledges embraced within the
15 claims of the company. There are
already spproximately BOO tons of oro
upon the dump, resulting from the
sinking of a shaft to the 100 foot level
and the drifting of three tunnels to
the east, west and south, varying in
length from 40 to 80 feet.
The ledge in which the high grade
ore has been found has broadened
from a width of abouf 12 inches to oria
of about four feet, and there are indi
cations that this width will increase
as the tunnel is driven further to the
Eight men are now employed at the
camp and these are working1 In two
shifts, operating a 10 horse power gas
oline hoist and progres?--irg along the
ledgo daily a distance of from three to
four feet, and cross-cutting to the south
.about the same distance daily in . the
expectation of encountering a second
and perhaps the main ledge.
The men engaged in this work are
confident that the sinking of the shaft
from 50 to 100 feet further will result
in the finding of ore of even higher
value than that already reported. They
are planning to ship out a few carloads
of the ore, and hope later to be in a po
sition to erect an adequate mill upon
the property. There is an abundance
of water, both from a spring close at
hand and from the bd of the Tortilla
creek, 1.500 feet from the camp. The
work is in charge ot George Miilor,
the discoverer of the ledge and old
workings, and hi; associates, who with
in the past four months have expended
several thousands of dollars in the pre
liminary explorations nnd development,
believe with him that they have opened
up the o'd mine that played such a
prominent part in the early history of
Arizona. Even if this shouid not be
the case, they at lea.-t are satisfk 1
that they are oTatir-- vpon a prop
erty tnr-t will soon be producing to an
extent that will place it upon a par
with any gold mine nov being worked

The paint industry is the oldest in
the world and flourished in what Is
now Phoenix about 10,000 years before'
Christ. Wherever archeologists have
dug or looked they have found signs
of pafnt, and history began with paint.
This is Information reaching the

Some of the earliest uses of paint
were on faces, toes, fingers, clubs nd
etoncs. The human race's first instinct
is to cry, then eat, then paint. It
wants to copy on something what it
has seen in nature. Jt is the first
sign cf civilization, and savages be

mcnt of more than 100 boys over 14 j
years of age this term, sufficient to i
procure an allotment of rifles, it is
stated, under general order No. 43 of

consequence a communication has
been addressed to Aajutant General
Ingalls asking that the Glendale cadet
