Her Bcsources.- A Condensed State ment of Some of Our Wonderful Advantages. The following, taken from the Omaha Daily Bee, of Jan. 16th, is well worth reading, and its cir culation will undoubtedly be pro ductive of great good: The ancient history of Arizona is no less interesting than is the modern: The cliff houses of the Rio de Ohelly and the canyons of the Colorado still present their problems to antiquarians, some of whom believe the early Arizonians to have been of the Pueblo sto.clr, while ofche:s trace thorn to the Aztecs . There are fortresses, great systems of canals, which unques tionably belong to the partly civiliz ed people who d'welt in Arizona six or eight centuries ago. His torians say that 300,00p persons 'then occupied tho Salt River valley alone. Late in the sixteenth cent ury Jesuit and Franciscan mis sionaries did great work in this heathen land and founded many towns, but the civil zatio'n that arose their train vanished before the forays of the Apiiche warriors, who reduced Arizona to savagery. In 1847 General S. W. Kearney marched his command through the Gila Valley and first l'rough't this country to the notice ot Americans. The Territory was not set apart from New Mexico until 1863. Be tween 1964 and 1S76 the Indians massacred more than 1,000 whites in Arizona, but soon after the era of savagery and dsolaiioH came to an end! In 18S2-3 the Apaches again took the warpath, but Gen eral Crook held them in check. Another foray occurred in 1885-6, when Geronimo killed fifty per sons before Goneral Miles could capture the red warriors in - the mountains of Sonora, yet even in 1891 a number of Arizonians were killed by the Indians. "Since the removal of many of th'e hostile Apaches and the incoming of the ailroads, Arizona has grown rapidly. The area of Arizona is HSjOOO square" miles. The agri culture of Arizona depends upon artificial irrigation, by . whose aid crops of wheat and alfalfa are raised. as well as fruits and vegetables of ilmost every variety. Modern ir rigation in Arizona began in 1867, with the construction of the Salt River Valley canal. There were then no railroads within a thousand miles of Arizona. Other great canals have been constructed, and in 1889 the four principal canals were consolidated, thus constitut ing the most complete system ef irrigation in the United States. Within ten years upward of $4,000,- 000 has been expended in irrigation canals in Arizona. The area that can be irrigated by the water in light in the canals in operation cannot be less than 250,000 acres. The Salt River Valley presents one of the most favorable areas in the United States "for tho production of semi-tropical fruits, such as oranges, lemons, grapes, figs, apricots, etc. There are thousands of acres of growing crops that rival in lux uriance those found in the famed valley of the Nile. Nearly every thing in the way of grains, veget ables and fruits grown in the temperate and semi-tropical zones flourish. Wheat and barley grow with wonderful rapidity. Many varieties are produced the year round. All kinds of berries flourish. Apricot trees bear from thirty to 300 pounds each. The almond crop is large arid profitable. Mar icopa county, it is estimated, con tains about 1,000 acres of arable land. The heavier soil of the lower-lying land has been deemed especially suited to the growth of cereals, while that contiguous to the foothills is preferred for both citrus and deciduous roots. The annual yield of wheat and barley is large. The grain yield averages 14000 pounds of wheat and 18,000 pounds of barley to . the acre., The total shipment of fruits aggregates about 8,000,000 pounds annually. Of other products than fruits the exports consist of 100 carloads o:. wool, thirty carloads of honey, up wards of 1,000 carloads of alfalfa hay, and thirty carloads of alfalfa. seed. The Territory has 1,000,000. hpad of cattle. The mineral resources of Arizona; are enormous, and her leading in dustries are in mining and smelt ing, crushing and milling the ores. The modern output of the mines has passed $80,01)0,000 and their .product in the days of Spanish con trol was very greafc. The export of silver hns reach $5,000"000 an nually. The silver veins of Tomb stone are large and easily worked, and have produced $33,000,000 worth of 'treasure since their dis covery, in 1878. Arizona's exports of copper have reached $4,000,000 a year. The copper deposits at Clifton are among the richest in the world. Pino Canyon is the center of a group of rich mines, some of the ore of which assays $104 to the ton. The vast size and extent to the Ochiti leads make.this district one of the most remarkable ever discovered. In no other mining camp has such a great quantity of par ore been ex posed by mere prospect and assess ment work. Some of the are is very high grade. The average wiil run above $40 to the ton. The placer mining around Prescott has re.iched '-normouj proportions. Various estimates ol the valu of the product of7 the placers of Ya vapai since the discoverT of Weaver: and Rich Hill fix the amount at $20,000,000. The placer yield ofj the vicinity of Prescott is computed at $100,000,000 annually, if not more. The Congress mine, in which ore is in sight which will take ten years to mine, produces from $50,000 to $65,000 a month. From the Jersey Lily mine ore run ning as high as $1,000 per ton, and never less than $200. has been pro duced. The Little Jessie mine has produced, up to date, nearly half a million dollars. These mines are within fifty miles of Prescott. Tie most remarkable geological forma tion in the world is that constitut ing the Arizona onyx near Prescott. Delicate colorings and bandings, intermingling into the most fanciful markings and figures, make the stone one of remarkable beauty. The quantity is inexhaustible. The Vanderbilt group of onyx mines comprises 240 acres. The greater part of the onyx on these claims is of a beautiful white color, banded with .seams of amber, brown and old-gold. There is exquisite green onyx in all shades and colors. On Sycamore creek lithograph stone quarries are in operation. The' coal fields of Arizona are larger than those of Pennsylvania, and its pine forests greater than those of Michigan. The population of Arizona in 1890 was 59,620. The estimated population in 1896 is 77,000. There are 11,320 school children. The railroad. mileage is 1,357. There are 185 postoffices. The annual manufactures amount to $1,000,000. Sermon iu Stinginess. "A Missouri exchange preaches a sermon on the above subject in the following rich, rare, spicy and truthfnl manner, and you, dear reader, know there are just such persons in ever town, no matter how small or large it may be." says the Mohave County Miner.

"A real, genuine, lS-karat stingy ' selfish man can't be honest, and if, he ever gets to Heaven and has wings, he will fold them up and walk for fear he might ruffle a plume or lose a tail feather.

Life would be one big game of grab, and the devil take the hindmost would be the order of the day." TOLTEC K0I3S. They Outrival "the Great Pyramids of Eg-ypt. Of the faces which inhabited the American continent before the white man undertook to civilize it, says the El Paso Herald, the Tol tecs are worthy of notice for the civilization they brought, presum able from Asia or some unknown part of the world. It has always been a mystery where they came from, and will possibly always bev so, but the fact remains that they have left to thinking . people last ing remembrances of a civilization which was unexcelled at the time they arrived on the American con tinent. The pyramids of Egypt', which tourists travel thousands of miles to see, are inferior if any thing, to what can be seen . today in Mexico by those ambitious of taking in the sights of the world. The pyramids of the sun and moon, which were built' by the Toltecs, are to be seen today in Mexico. The former is colossal in its proposi tions and equals in architectural skill anything which Egypt can produce. Its length is 840 feet, breadth 609 feet, and its height in proportion to the rest of its colpssal dimensions. It was huilt by these people to perpetuate their idea of religion. The pyramid of the sun was supposed to represent day andthe pyramid of the moon rer presented night. The latter was 600 feet long and 510 feet wide. In each of these splendid structures an idol -was placed of gigantic pro portionSj which it was supposed would overlook and protect the people from the influence of the evil spirit, which was supposed to remain around whenever it was cloudy. The Mexican government about four years ago sent a party to investigate and report on the discoveries which it was expected would be made f in this pyramid; They were thoroughly explored and a report given which corroborate ed the i riting of the ancient his torian with regard to these pyra niids. The expedition which wen ' to Palenque a few years ago, sent by the French government, dis closed the fact fliat there was no thing wich Egypt could produce which Palenque could not discount The Toltecs certainly gave the world something to think about when the' built these stupendous monuments to thpir everlasting grandeur and civilization.
