It is -the southwest division of the"Territory, and one of the four original counties of the Ter ritory. Many great reclamation projects are however on foot, and in a few years ex pect to see Yuma County rated as the richest in the Territory. The first glimpso the traveler from Cali forhia catches of Arizona is that of the" picturesque town of Yuma, which is snugly situated in the embrace of gentle rolling bills, upon whose crests and sides the modern homes of our superior civilization are crowding the adobe dwellings into eternal oblivion. Yuma is the gateway to Arizona, the new empire of the West, Upon whose undeveloped riches the eyes of the country are at present turned, and as such, she is bcund to grow and prosper with a rapidity that at present can hardly be re alized. But coupled with her geographi cal position we find that she is tho center of a country whose agricultural possibili ties are practically unlimited, being sur rounded by a soil the fertility of which exceeds that of the delta of the Nile, and wanting only water to become a paradise of bloom. Billions of gallons of that precious fluid have annually gone' to waste at Yuma's very doors, but already a reaction is taking place and many enterprises are on foot to supply the life-giving waters of the'yellow Colorado to the thirsty earth. RIVERS OF YUMA COjONTY. In regard to climate, healthfulness, fer tility and productiveness of soil, facilities for cultivation, irrigation and abundance of water supply, variety of resources and cheap transportation' by rail and by water, no part of Arizona can surpass Yuma county, which is destined to become One of richest and most prosperous counties in Arizona. ' ' 1 It lies between 32 00' and 34 20' north latitude and 113 20' and 114 40,' west longitude. It contains 6,488,320 acres. It is about as large as tire States of Rhode Island, Connecticut and Delaware com bined, or as large as either New Hampshire, Vermont "or Massachusetts. The western boundary of Yutna County is formed by the Colorado river, which separates Arizona from California. The county is bounded on the north by Williams Fork and the Santa Maria river, whose waters flow into the Colorado; on the east by the counties of Pima, Maricopa and Yavapai, and on the south by Souora, Mexico. Its county seat is the town of Yuma. The Colorado river drains the entire ter ritory of Arizona, and every drop of water which falls on its mountains and plains finds its way to this mighty river. It is formed by the union of the Green and Grand rivers, fed by the streams which rise in the Rocky Mountains, and the melt ing snows cause a greater depth of water in this river in summer than in winter, thus furnishing the most water at the season when it is most required for the purposes of irrigation and agriculture. It will be seen that for the entire distance along its western boundary, Yuma County possesses the great advantage of cheap water transportation. The Gila river rises in the western part of New Mexico and is fed by numerous streams, among the most prominent of which are the San Pedro, Asjua Fria, Has- sayampa and Salt rivers. It flows west through Yuma County and empties into the Colorado at the town of Yuma. Yuma ccun,ty, traversed by these great rivers from its northern to its southern, and from its eastern to its western bound aries, possesses a far greater water supply than any other county in the Territory, and far more .than can be found in all Calir fernia. This water is now being diverted from its natural channels by means of numerous large irrigating canals, and utilized for the purpose of reclaiming and irrigating the immense tracts of lands which lie in this favored country, and which are as fertile 'as any in the world. The Southern Pacific Railroad crosses the Colorado river at the town of Yuma and runs through the county, following the generol course, and at an average distance of about four miles south, of the Gila river, rendering all the lands susceptible of irri gation and cultivation, can find an easy outlet in this way and can be trauspoited to all the markets and centers of population inthe East or West. Another competing railroad is projected from San Diego, California, to the town of Yuma, and thence along the north side of the Gila river. Thus Yuma County will have exceptional railroad advantages. THE CLIMATE OF YUMA. The climate of Yuma for nine months of the year has no equal, as we believe, in the world, and during the remaining three months of the year, comprising June, July and August, the heat is not oppressive. Even though the thermometer in mid-summer may a times rise above 100, and oc casionally even reach 110, yet, owing to the absence of moisture in the air, it is not oppressive. The atmosphere is pure, light and balmy. When the mercury marks the highest extreme of heat, a person does not feel that oppression or debility which is felt in tliG Eastern States when the mer cury in ranging from 80 to 90. The air is so dry that perspiration is absorbed as soon as it reaches the surface of the body, and at no time in the summer docs tho heat produce any discomfort. ARIZONA. Arizona stands at the threshold of an era of wonderfnl social and industrial de velopment. There can't be a doubt about the fact. The dawn for which she has waited so long is breaking at last. There is every promise of a day of great pcos perity and permanent upbuilding just be fore her.- The impulse of a new and ener gizing hope" is visible everywhere among her people, while the cuinulativre'effect of many things, which, .made but small im pression as "they transpired singly, is "now" commanding for her a fall share of atten tion and interest abroad among home seekers" 2nd capitaliatsV ' , A lively competition has sprung up for the possession of things which have hereto fore gone a-begging for ownership. There is a scramble for franchises. Nothing more surely indicates a great industrial awaken ing than this. The rates of interesfcare falling to' moderate figures.- Nothing more surely indicates confidence and competition among the money lenders than this. Arizona has reached that climacteric period which every western state has ex perienced sometime in its history when, after long and weary struggle and doubt, with each side of the balance first up and then down, the clouds of despondency have suddenly rolled away, and a sunburst of energizing hope has thrilled the droop ing spirits of the people to greater and braver endeavor than before. For the last twelve years the subsidence of "thfi great Tombstone boom and the com pletion of two transcontinental lines of railroad across her territory Arizona has rather dropped out of public attention, but in that time she has been quietly ac cumulating a fund of substantial wealth and a force 'of moral character which qualify her now to rise up and take her destiny in her own hands. The population of Arizona is Mexican. This" is a mistake of great importance from the moral point of view. There is but one considerable center pf Mexican population in the territory, the city of Tucson, and even there it is not by any means at pres ent the predominating element. It think it is certain that Arizona has not to-day nearly so large a Mexican population as Colorado and not above one-tenth as much as New Mexico. "Fitz-Mac," in Denver News. A Leader.

THE EIMITOK, Ho Gives Some Finat' xTKcs- Sages to EIIh Stuff". "The owner of a paper lay dying in his lair, and the dew of death had gathered on his brow so calm and fair but a printer knelt beside him, as his life-blood ebbed away, and asked the dying writer if he had a word to say.- The doomed man murmured softly as he grab bed the printer's fist: "Well, at last the struggle's over and I never will be missed. Take a message and a token to that city man of mine, that all his worn-out ' ches nuts he had better put ini brine. There's his joke about the weather, which he's used this many years, and the gag about the fellow who is always hunting beers. And the item he's so fond of on the man who peddles books, and the ches nut based on people who go fish ing in the brooks; just to save ttie paper's credit, and to cast no slurs on mine, I would ask him as a favor just to put such gags in brine. And the lies he's fond of telling of the streetcars and the tracks, and the joke about the man who step ped upon some tacks, and the one about some dandy who will never pay for clothes, and the one on women cleaning house it's'weary, heaven knows! Oh, I know I'll slumber happy in my grave be neath the vine, if the man who does the city work will pat these' jokes in brine.

Tell .the foreman when he makes up not to turn a rule for me, but to simply print an item saying that my soul 13 'free; for I want no eulogistic taffy of that kind in mine, and I think such hoary chesnuts' should be pickled well in brine. Have that gay and fresh reporter I Engaged the other day put a . stop to saying "Selah," also "We have conie to" stay;" and if he should say " "Ye local" you must trample in his gore, for you know I'd ne'er allow it in the hap py days of yore. And the man who comes to tell you how to run the paper well should be greeted with a pewter chesnut bell; and you'll print the paper promptly, be the weather full of storm3, and the foreman must be careful when he is making up the form?, that the beauty of the paper may through all ages shine, and not be like its neighbors, only to put in brine.

Secretary Morton reminds the croakers that only about 3 per cent of all the' merchants escape failure. whereas hardly 3 per cent of the larmersfail. The statistics reallv show that agriculture is safer than banking, manufacturing,' or rail roading, taking all things into ac count: ; There is no farmer of ?onr" sense and good health anywhere in the West. Mr. Morton declares: who cannot make a good living for himself and family, and that is as well'asthe majority1 of men are doing in any other pursuit". The maVwno ownes a farm and sticks to it is certain to profit by it in the future. There js practically no more land to be "added to the area of cultivation. The supply of agri cultural products has" reached its limit in the United States, and must now remain stationary, while the demand will go off increasing every year. This implies a gradual improvement in prices, and a steady appreciation of the value of farming lands. Scientific Amer ican. It is positively" astonishing the extent to which mining develop ments are going on all around us. The last" interesting 'gold proposi tion is about twenty-two miles north of Indio. Its owner is ex hibiting a &olid gold brick in L03 Angeles as the result of a three days' run "of a two stamp mill, and lie claims that there are a million dollars in sight. Just' such 'stories of gold discoveries are heard all the way from Yuma to the Need les, from Needles to" Yanderbilt and from Vanderbilt to St. George county, Utah, and beyond that point to Maopa. We may be as sured that, from day to day, the same narratives of glad tidings will be reported. This section is but in the initial of its treasure development. The completion of the Nevada Southern railway to Maopa, and ultimately to Salt Lake City, will lead to miraculous developments in the territory tributary to Los Angeles. Los Angeles Herald. Weatber Report or Arizona. The following items are taken from the report of director "Vv". R. Burrows of the Arizona Weather Service Bureau: Yuma County, Yuma: The weather has been the very best for all kinds of crops, vines and fruits, all of which are doing well. Apricots and plums were ripe on the 8th. "Fig tree's are loaded with fruit. Grapes on the valley lands neVer ;before promised such a crop. The finest onions are in the market from the valley and Yuma Heights. The river is overflowing th5 lotyer valley lands, which insures a good crop of wild hay and feed. Moha'wk: 'H&ying is going on over all the valley. There will be several hundred acres of alfalfa and barley 'hay cut. The' erops axe good and the weather is just right to cure them. Grapes look fine and promise a l)ig yield. -r Palomas: " First crop of alfalfa and barlfey hay harvested; second crop growing very rank and plenti ful. There is yet plenty of water for irrigation, but the river is get ting low. it has been a good week for all growing crops. Eitipty Woom Towns. There are twenty well-built towns in Kansas without a single inhabitant to walten the echoes of their deserted streets. Saratoga has a thirty thousand-dollar opera house, a large brick hotel, a twerity-thousand-dollar school-house and a number of fine business houses, and yet there is nobody to even claim a plaee to sleep. At Fargo a twenty-thousarid-doll house stands on the side of the hill, a monunsnt to the bond-voting craze. A herder and his family are the sole population of what was once an incorporated citv. This is a sad commentary on un-. healthy booms. Those Kansas towns, like Wichita, advertised themselves as' phenomenal ooom cities. J or awhile "everything was lovely and the poohp hnn- - O high," but at last, dry rot took hold iU . 1 i j . . ... tue uuom towns and Jcilled them."

There has been a considerable am'ourft of figuring as to 'the com parison Tbe.tween the banana crop and that of other food growths Early in the present century Humboldt estimated that the'same amount of ground that produced 1000 pounds of. potatoes would produce 44,000 pounds of bananas. Others .have also given estimates that seem startling, but all agree that as a food plant bananas -produce more to the square inch of ground than any other. A single acre of bananas yields on an average 783 bunches, weighing sixty pounds each, every year ar total of 46,980 pounds. An acre of wheat, averaging.sixteen bushels at sixty pounds, is. only 960 pounds: therefore bananas produce about forty -eight time's as much as wheat, and that, too, when they are planted- at distances of eighteen feet apart-' These figures lead one to investigate as to the- possibilities of making money in the production of .bananas.
