The Yuma Ice Co. desires to an nounce to all builders and pur chasers of lumber that they will sell select lumber to all at Los Angeles prices. Colorado Navigation. One would not think from the illus trated article in the Los Angeles Herald of last Sunday that the Col orado river and Needles constitute any part of the great state of Cal ifornia. The article is headed "Steamboating on the Colorado" and gives as an illustration the cut of a gasoline boat that has been slumbering beneath the waters of the river for, lo these many years. They designate the illustration as landing freight at the mines, but, the picture was taken- at Needles showing the pumping plant and the old reduction works and not within ten miles of a mine. Talk about just finding ways' to navigate the Colorado, why, steamboats have been doing business between Yuma and Fort Mohave since the latter 50's and have been in constant ser vice every day since. Steamboat ing on the Colarado is neither prim itive nor crude. There are many thousands of dollars invested in boats on the Colorado river. The steamers Cochan and Mohave are boats of 200 tons burden and will tow barges with 150 tons cargo, these boats are strictly up to date, fully manned, and have all the modern appliances for river naviga tion. Less than a week ago the desert was written up from the car window of a moving train. Now someone weaves a story round an old photograph. It hardly seems possible the writer of the article ever saw the Colorado river much less a steamboat navigating its waters. Needles Eye. John Bull should look out while gazing at the Chinese situation that Oom Paul does not slip up behind him with a shingle. Hard Lines. There are always a good many Arizonans in town at this season and last Friday week was no excep- tion. That was the day of the free holders' election and, as a matter of course, all the saloons were closed. It was a trying situation for the average Arizona thirst. Four fel lows met in front of a Third-street saloon and one said: "Well, we're all here together for the first time in six months. Let's go in and hyste in some of this fel ler's pizen," He j walked up to the saloon door to find it closed as tight as any mausoleum and nearly pushed his right side through the glass Which formed part of the door. "What kind of geewhallop ingly gaul-derned town is this ye've got hyurV" he shrieked with a ve hemence worthy of Bryan himself. "What, kind of a one-horse village is this whar a feller can't git his rations of biled corn ef he's got the money to pay for 'em?" "Perhaps you are not aware sir," quietly replied a citizen who stood by, "that this is an election day and, under the laws of this state, all sa loons must be closed on that day." "Till when?" asked the sagebrush man. "From sunrise till sundown," re 'plied the citizen blandly, and took his departure. Just then along came two little Italian boys with a harp and violin. They looked up inquiringly into the face of the man from the desert. "Say, Bill," said one of his com panions, "as we can't get in thar to bite the adder, s'posin' we have some music? Hyur, you youngsters, tune up," and he threw them a quarter. The black, bead-like eyes of the larger boy sparkled as he inquired: "Watta da tuna de signor lika me playa for him?" "Well," replied the thirsty indi vidual, "ef its all the same to yoii, my sonny, you can play 'Just as the Sun Went Down.' " Los An geles Times. One afternoon this week ex-Councilman J. F. Meador, a democrat of the line, met Bronk, the proprietor of a wash house opposite the Lemon house in Phoenix. "See here, Bronk." said Mr. Meador, "I want you to bring my wash home next Tuesday; now, mind, Tuesday, sure." "Wha fo!" asked Bronk. "Because," said Mr. Meador, "The next day we are x going to kill all the boxers. I don't want to have to wait till your estate goes through probate court to get my clothes." "Me no boxer," said Bronk. "All boxers in north China; none in south," Bronk went on excitedly, trying to explain the character of the boxer organization, which he said was like one of the great poli tical parties of the United States. "Yo sabe democlat," said he, "box er all same democlat, heap dam fool." Citizen.
