There is more catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the last two
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced ita local disease and prescribed
local remedies, and by constantly fail
ing to cure with local treatment pro-
uounced it incurable. Science has
proven catarrh to be a constitutional
disease and therefore requires constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
manufactured by F. .7. Cheney & Co.,
Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional
cure on the market. It is taken inter
nally in doses from ten drops to a tea-
spoonful. It acts directly on the blood
aud raucous surfaces of the system.
They offer one hundred dollars for any
case it fails to cure. Send for circulars

Mrs. Harry Hinds, living in the val
ley below town, recently found the nest
of a Gainbel quail under u small pile of
lumber and but a few feet from the
door of her home, containing eighteen
eggs. In the course of time the parent
birds left with fourteen -young ones. Of
the remaining four eggs two hatched
in the nest the day following and were
cared for bv Mrs. Hinds, and the two
unhatclied eggs were placed in the sun
and the next dav another little one left
its shell, but the fourth egg did not
produce. At last accounts the young
sters were doing well and promised fair
to grow into mature birds.
A case came to light that for persist
ent and unmerciful torture has perhaps
never been equaled. Joe Golobick of
Colusa, Calif., writes; "For 15 years I
endured insufferable pain from rheum
atism and nothing relieved me though
I tried everything known. I came
across Electric Bitters and it's the
greatest medicine on earth for that
trouble. A few bottles completely re
lieved and cured me." Just as good

eral debility. Only 50c. Satisfaction

We boast of everything that can be
grown in a semi-tropical country, and
we know that it can be done if proper
care be had as is given to plants else
where, but strangely enough all the
cabbage used in the town has to be
brought from California. It retails in
the market at four cents a pound.
Granting that the producer received
but two cents a pound, his profits on
the market supply would bring him in
a good return for his investment and
labor. The crop is one that requires
but little care to produce.

) Government Irrigation j
; Aleeting. j
The people of Yuma Valley on last
Saturday afternoon took the initial
step toward securing benefits' under the
National Irrigation Law, and the only
wonder is that such . a move was not
made long ago. When Mr. Lippincott
was here several weeks ago he urged
the organization of the water users,
andgave his opinion ( which was also
that of all the government engineers
who bad been in the Colorado river
survey, ) that the irrigable lands along
the Colorado constituted the greatest
irrigation scheme in arid America.
The people have been a little slow in
taking hold of this matter, but now
that it has begun we hope to see the
organization perfected, and as the gov
ernment requires, all canal interests
brought under one corporation. In
fact this is absolutely necessary before
anything can be done to secure any
benefits or promise of benefits under
the irrigation law.
The following is a report of the Sat
urday meeting, furnished the Sentinel
by the secretary, Attorney Fred Ingra
ham: Mass meeting of the water users of
the Yuma Valley, at the Court House,
Yuma, Arizona. July 25th, 1 p. m.,
The meeting was called to order by
Mr. S. B. Hinds, who stated the pur
pose of the meeting and the reason for
the call at this time. Mr. Hinds stated
that Mr. Marvin and himself who had
been appointed by a previous meeting
to secure the presence of Mr. Maxwell.
Mr. B. A. Fowler and others had en
deavored to secure the presence of
these gentlemen, but could not. A let
ter of regret from Mr. B. A. Fowler
was read, also a telegram from 'Mr.
Geo. H. Maxwell.
Mr. M. Winsor was chosen chair
man, Mr. a. Li. inerraham, secretary.
It was moved and supported that
when this meeting adjourn, it adjourn
to meet Aug. 31, when Mr. Maxwed,
according to his telegram, can be pres
ent. Also that a committee be ap
pointed to draft Articles of Incorpora
tion for a proposed Water Users' Asso
The following resolution was moved
by Mr. Stephenson and supported:
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
meeting that the farmers of this valley
should invoke the aid of the Govern
ment of the United States in the con
struction of irrigation works.
By nomination and election by the
meeting the following persons were
chosen to constitute the committee on
drafting articles of incorporation: Fred
L. Ingraham, Wm. H. DeBerry, Larson
Johnson, R. H. Theilman, James M.
Thacker, Oscar P. Bondesson and Mul-
ford Winsor, Sr.
It was moved by Mr. Cox and sup
ported by Mr. Baldwin that a commit
tee of three be appointed to confer with
a committee to be appointed by the
various water companies, one by each
company, to negotiate the purchase of
the canal properties.
It was moved by Mr'. Dickinson and
seconded by Mr. James Meadows that
the last motion be amended to the effect
that the powers of the committee upon
articles of articles of incorporation be
extended to include the power to nego
tiate with the said canal companies for
the purchase of their properties or con
solidation with the proposed water
users association. Carried.
It was voted that Mr. Winsor act as
committee of correspondence, especially
to notify the government officers and
those at Phoenix who might be induced
to be present, at our meeting to be held
The meeting then adjourned, to meet
August 31, at 1 p. ra., at. the court

A Card tu the Public.
As a number of Merchants of Yuma
have entered into a mutual compact to
regulate the time for opening and clos
ing their respective business places,
and as the prominent attornej' who
was hired to carry out and obtain the
signatures to the agreement saw fit to
misrepresent the undersigned by at
taching his name to the list of signers
to the compact, the undersigned here
by declares that having declined, for
good reasons, to enter into the agree
ment, the action of placing his name on
that list was unwarranted, and believes
that the object of the above mentioned
gentleman was simply to earn his fee
by misrepresentation as he could not
accomplish it either by persuasion or
coercion. No blame whatever is at
tached by the undersigned, to the
salesmen in geneal, for whose benefit
the movement was started, with the
exception of one unauthorized "sooner"
who mentioned, and threatened, the
boycott as a means of coercion, setting
forth as an excuse for such an un-American
threat, the fact that the man to be
boycotted was a foreigner. Thank God
there are but few such bigoted minds,
and when one does appear be is gener
ally set upon, as in the present in
stance. A. Tonini.

Based On Universal Laws.
BY MARIE E. BAILEY;.
The educational world of to-day is
fully agreed that phj-sical educution is
necessary as a basis for superior men
tal development. Many are the means
and devices invented to bring the body
to a state of perfection. Some systems
aim to secure muscular strength,
others aim to develop agility, while a
few have beauty as the chief end in
view. Our method of physical educa
tion purposes to develop the body not
as an end unto itself, bub as a medium
through which the soul may express its
highest thoughts and feelings.
The system is founded on psychologi
cal and physiological principles. They
in turn are based upon universal laws.
Therefore the student, in practicing
these exercises, is sustained by the
same power that holds the stars in
their orbits. He leans upon the ever
lasting arms of eternal law.
"There is a natural body and a spir
itual body." Both are governed by
the same laws, for does not natural law
control the spiritual world?
The elements essential to successful
living are, on the physical side: Health
and vitality, to be gained through the
breath. Food. Proper exercise. Beau
ty and grace, making harmony, de
pendent upon: Proper dress. Proper
care of the body, and its appearance.
Proper action of the body, as motions,
On the mental side: By a strong de
sire for a higher plane of consciousness
and culture. By concentration upon
the state desired. By auto-suggestion:
i. e., "directing the subconscious mind
to be, to do, and to compass whatever
will aid its serene progress and unfold
raent toward God-like wisdom and
health. The mental is dependent upon
the physical, so that all which is nec
essary to physical health and harmony
is equally essential to mental growth.
The breath is the cord which unites
the dependent organism to the great
Cosmical spirit of life;" that breath is
life, and can control and direct life;
that by the breath we can control the
nerve centers, and so direct the forces
of the body. Concentrate the mind
upon the thought that breath is life
and that with each breath you are
sending messages of direction through
every portion of your body. Make the
body subject to the mind and wiil "As
a man thinks, so is he was said by an
old philosopher years ago. (Socrates, I
think) is as true to-day as then.
We claim that Psycho-physical edu
cation will develop the body into a con
dition of health and beauty, and will
enable it to express readily and in a
beautiful manner the thoughts and
feelings of the individual.
It is true that this is admitting an X
ray into our souls, but we should so live
that we need never fear the uncon
scious expression of. our inmost selves.
"May the prayers of Plato be ours:
Grant me to become beautiful in the
inner man and that outward parts may
be at peace with those within."
Rushing Improvements I
It affords the Sentinel more pleasure
than a free ride to the coast to announce
to water consumer' and patrons of the
Colorado river generally, that the im
provements promised by thev manage
ment of the city water system are in a
fair way for an. early and speedy reali
zation. A large force of men, consist
ing of at least four fully adult Yuma
Ind'ans, with picks, shovels, bars and
buckets have been at work on the sys
tem all of a dozen ten-hour days, and a
piece of wrought-steel pipe, pitched,
lap-welded and screw-cut twelve
threads to the inch and conservatively
estimated to be ndt less than one hun
dred feet long, is already under ground.
Everything is on the rush and addition
al pieces of pipe are liable to-be thrust
into the system even as the Sentinel
that great dispenser of public informa
tion goes-tb press. Already the oscil
lations and vibrations of these improve
ments have been felt in life insurance
circles and premiums are known to be
steadily on the decline. During the
late city election, when ice cream was
promised for voting down the bonds,
it was the contemporaneous opinion of
jat least seventeen out of the twenty
city. fathers past, present, and future
that the "promiser" was talking
through his head covering when he de
claredin pure Bostonese that he
would set up water-plugs more shapely
than Cleopatra's legs, chuck the mud
out of the Colorado and ram the water
through a patent filtering machine till
it sparkled, effervesced, and children
cried for it, but in view of what has
already been done it is plainly appar
ent that the "dads" were wrong again.

When in the valley the other day
Supervisor S. B. Hinds was startled by
the sudden falling of a dove from the
limb of a tree under which he was
standing. For a moment the bird lav
on the ground and appeared to be suffer
ing from a broken wing, but when he
attempted to pick it up it fluttered out
of his hand and, though apparently
badly crippled, he could never quite
reach it. When about fifty or sixty
feet from the starting point it flew into
a tree and looked at him as though it
wondered what all the trouble was
about. He then returned to the start
ing point and saw a nest on a limb
about fifteen feet up, but, as he says, he
"did not feel like shinning up the tree,"
so he could not tell whether it contained
eggs or young. The apparently crip
pled condition of the bird was for the
purpose of leading him away from the
nest. The trick is one practiced by
many mother birds for that purpose.
:ninteresting story of a little bluff
put up by a male Gambel quail is told
by a gentleman who formerly 'lived at
Mohawk, on the Gila. Near his corral.
in the direction of the river, cattle had
worn a deep trail. Once when passing
that way a llock of quail, consisting of
the two old ones and about twenty
young onesj ran before him in the trail.
The young ones were in advance, close
ly followed by the parent birds.. The
mother, however, had a broken wing
and soon fell behind the line of ner
young ones. The male bird brought
up the rear, and whenever approached
too close he would turn, ruffle up his
feathers and threaten to fly in the gen
tleman's face, He was encouraged to
show his pluck, which he continued to
do until the edge of the brush was
reaohed, when all disappeared.
