' That is the only proper direction
for intelligent art(f reasoning' peo
ple to look. There ia nothing to
be gained by looking backward.
The past is gone and we cannot
recall it Whatever may have
been the experience of any man
in life, whatever of joy or of
sorrow, of fortude or misfortune
may have fallen to his lot, it is
not safe or wise, to let the mind
dwell too much on the past. For
although there Rre some bright
spots on memory's waste where
the mind ioyes to linger, yet we
will ventare to say that there are
few If any men who can take m
retrospective .view of their lives
Uiihoiit experiencing more pain-
than pleasure. When we think-
The smiles, the taanvof childhood's veare,
I ne' words of love then spoken,
The eyes that ibftae.now dim and gone,
The cheerful heart, now broken.
When we think of the mistakes
and misfortunes, of the blasted
hopes and fond but unfulfilledan-
ticipations that have entered in
to the lives of all, in a greater or
less degree, the heart' tiirns away
sick', and if these reminiscences
are much indulgejd, in, they are
apt to produce a settled melancho
ly or despair, rendering the perr
son unfit for the-duties of life and
frequently causing decline .and
Thousands of people die before
their time, from norther cause
than fretting'and mourning over
the past; wTren, if they would
summon philosophy to their aid,
school their minds to avoid dwell
ing upon the past, and- as Long
fellow says, VLet the dead past
bury its dead," learn to look up
on the bright side of things and
look forward, their lives might
be long, .useful and comparatively
Then4et us look forward. We of
Arizona have much to look for
ward tod.Lefr no gloomy mourning
over our past misfortunes cause
our energies to Hag, or lessen our
faith and hope in the bright fu
ture thatawaiisus. The future is
big with hope and pregrant with
prosperity for the energetic and
the faithful. That great mcura
bus that has so long stood in our
- way, the hostile savage, has ngar
. ly passed away, and will soon
cease 'to afliet us forever. We
have a great Territory, ftrllof all
the diversified elements of wealth
and crramleur. All we want is
energy, and pluck, intelligence
and perseverance, and that confi
dent, hopeful, unfaltering looking
forward, which is the natural
characteristic of men who are fit
to subdue and open up to civiliza
tion a' great and rich country. We
but repeat what we have often
said, when we say that Arizona
possess far more natural geaJtb
thiR ay r-hc' T-: -rru-ry in the

add to ail these the most healthy
ciimate or climates on earth, and
our assertions will not be success
fully contradicted. We have
heretofore said that a man can
find any kind of climate to suit
him in this great Territory. All
the vegetable productions of the
.earth find a climate to which
4iiey- are adapted here. All the
grains, grasses, fruits, nuts and
vegetables,and cotton sand tobacco
lave their place and their natur

Then possessing all these aavan-

ed for four days when' the trail
noting indication' of the vicinity
of a rancheria was perceived. Lt.

make their; way out through the
Little' Canon, where four more
were killed by Indian soldiers.
On! the 27th, another rancher ia
was discovered and the command
was advanced to surprise it, but
unfortunately it was deserted by
hostile Indians, who took to flight
leaving one dead man behind
them. Iu this rancheria, great
quantities of mescal, fine furs,
