Magnificent JErial Display !;
At about 10 p. m. of Sunday la!st
a very large Meteor appeared
about.35 degrees above the hori
.zon, and 10 degrees S, of east.
It at first looked the size as
the crown of a hat, and in moving
majestically across the sky, occu
pied about 1 second in reaching
the zenith, from whence -it threw
off the most brilliant scintillations
-qf variegated colors for about
30 degrees of its farther course,
then emitted a ghastly white
light as powerful as at its
first appearance ; and finally,
after having reached a point
10 degrees north of west, arid 20
above the horizou, it faded sud
denly from view, followed by a
aun explosion ana succeeding
reverberntory roar ; the eng
tire length of its luminous track
Toeing- distinctly seen for several
seconds afterward.
It? occupied about three seconds
in its flight from point to point.
- A loud rushing noise accompa
nied the phenomenon, sounding
like that made by a huge sky
Ordinary print could easily have
been read by the powerful light
shed by this meteor,

frequent occurrence in this lati

of a National Astronomical Ob

Important to Owners of Stock in
Yuma County.
All persons owning stock in
Yuma county, who have not re
corded their brand or brands in
the office of the County Recorder,
should do so at once, as will be
seen by reading the law on the
subject, to be found at page 689
Compiled Laws of Arizona :
Sec. 3. " No mark, brand or connter
brand, elinll be considered lawful if not
recorded as specified m this act."
Next week we will give the law
in full.
Proceedings of the Board of Super
visors of Yuma County.
Board met pursuant to last ad
journment, at 9 a. m. All the
members present.
Board took recess till 4 p. m., to
give County Treasurer time ; to
complete duplicate Tax or Assess
ment roll.
4 P m. Redondo and Fisher
present; Baker absent. '
On motion, the duplicate Tax
roll waa turned over to the Tax
Collector, Dr. F. H. Goodwin,
with the warrant thereto at
tached, for. collection Bonds
were handed in the same even
ing by Collector Goodwin and ap
proved, which are now on file in
the County Recorder's office.
No other business being before
the Board, it adjourned sine die.
During his late visit the Gover
nor informed us that he intended
to publish "Statistics of Arizona"
early next year. The appropria
tion made by the Legislature for
the publication of this, work (only
$300) is not enough to enable the
author to give all the information
in a desirable compass and style;
besides, 3,000, copies, the number
proposed to bo issued, will
prove inadequate, we think, for
the due dissemination of so im
portant a compendium. But "half
a loaf is better than no bread."
It seems almost ridiculous to
re-affirm, for the information of
some of our readers, that the
Texas and Pacific Railroad will bo
built via Yuma.
Abundance op Water on the
Sonora. Desert. Wo learn from
Sra. Aguilar, who came through
from Sonora one day this week,
lhat plenteous rains had fallen on
the Sonora Desert, and that all
the watering places on that road
are full. The numerous herds
of horses and cattle that have
been detained here awaiting rain,
have been started for Sonora
over that route. Several fam
ilies have also left within the last
week, bound for the same destination.
Indications of Rain The
weather has been cloudy for sev
eral days past, and during the
night of Thursday we received
a slight sprinkling, but the clouds
floated off up the river, and
have doubtless wet the Wallapai
and Mojave sections ere this.
Rain has fallen on the road bo
tween Yuma and San Diego.
While traveling over the Mo

Our County Recorder says that
"it works a hardship" to have to
take down and examine records
for two or , three hours, and get,
as a remuneration therefor, an
unnegotiable "thank you!" As
parties have the right to search
the records for themselves, they
should call for the particular book
or paper desired to be seen, other
wise they ought not to forget that
a fee is allowed the Recorder by
law for searching.
