What tSie North Po!e Is
The mystery of the North Pole
has made it -a favorite theme for
romancists, who have pictured it
an ice-bonnd Eden, the home of
earth's most ancient remnants of
civilisation, a monstrous mael
strom, a great opening into the
interior around whose curving
sides even ships might sail, the
point at which all the winds of
earth originate, a great, bleak,
wind-swept rock, untrod and for
bidding, a giant peak extending
its ice cap miles into the frosty
air and other ideas fantastic
and unreal and clad in the mys
ticism of the unknown.
And yet, except for its very
exclusiveness, there can be no
mystery about it.
The only question that could
have been solved by its discov
ery is whether or not the imag
inary point upon the earth's sur
face is in an open sea or on a
moveable ice floe.
Dr. Cook reports that the pole
is located on a vast, bleak, deso
late waste of ice, with no ground,
only dazzling snow fields.
The bones of many iotrepiO
explorers have been leffc io
"bleach upon the intermediate
wastes, and untold treasure has
been expended and untold suffer
ings endured in the efforts to
wrest from Nature one of her
last and most jealously guarded
The North Pole is merely an
imagined pointr as the equatoris
an imagined Ikte.
It is ttao point where all the
meridians converge and where
the parallels play out as a string
unwinds from the tip of a top.
Latitude hs &0 and longitude is
There is but one direction and
that is- south, south on every
North is straight up toward the
aenith, and there is no east and
The sun, when it can be seen
at .all, makes perfect e;ircaits of
the horraohi, and the completion
of a day is marked by the retnrn
of the sun- to any fixed point.
On the equator a person trav
eling on the rim of the whirling
ball, moyes through space at the
rate of 24,000 miles a day, while
a person at the pole travels only
.with the earth as it moves along
its orbit, and both would be
blisfully unconscious of it all.

Don't Want Two Precincts
The petition signed by 25 tax
payers presented to the board of
supervisors on Wednesday last,
pi'aying-f or the establishing of a
separate justice precinct, and
which, resulted in the creation of
district No. 14 b'eing all of that
territory lying beyond the cor
porate limits of the town in
district No. 1 was counterbal
anced Saturday by a petition
presented to the board signed
by 5-4 of the 150 tax-payers of
the valley, begging the board to
jecotisiderits action and do away
with: the new precinct. The pe
isitioo avers th-at the majority of
dwellers, and voters in the new
siistriei were not consulted in
the former petition and that it is
"highly unsatisfactory to them.

Rich Strike Reported
No little interest is being ta
ken here in the recent strike in
the Castle Dome range, twenty
miles northwest of Castle Dome
and about ten miles west of
Horse Tanks. The first discov
eries in the region were made
ten days ago by two prospectors
named Tweed and Wheeler. Ben
Heyl of this place has a miner
named Drennan on- the ground
who has located several claims.
Harry McPhanl outfitted and
left Yuma late in the week for
the scewe of the strike. McPhaul
will go in by way of the Castle
Dome- Landing,, the spot where
the oxe was found being about
ten miles from the Colorado
river.' The ledge, it is claimed,
can be traced two miles, is free
milling gold, and averages about
15 per ton.. As well as going
in by the route described, pros
pectors have crossed the country
from the North Star. A rush to
the new field is predicted, there
being an abundance of water as
a consequence of the heavy sum
More School Room
At a meeting of the board of
trustees of the Union High

college was a lively mademoi

One bright afternoon she
stopped two girls very excitedly.
She wanted to buy an "eponge

what to ask for.
"Bath sponge. Tell the sales

girls in a chorus, and they ac

A young clerk stepped for

"Please," she said, smilingly,
"will you kindly take me home

spectacles on his cow and fed her shavings. His theory
was that it didn't matter what the cow ate so long as she
was fed. The questions of digestion and nourishment had
not entered into his calculations.
It's only a "tenderfoot" farmer that would try such

The old Gandolfo home on
Madison avenue between First
and Second streets, one of the
landmarks of Yuma, having been
built thirty or more years ago,
yielded to the wear and tear of
the elements last Thursday
morning and caved in. The
Gandolfo family occupied the
old place for many years; but
except a room or two in the rear
it had been untenanted in recent
The Levy house, two blocks
farther south on the same street,
which was practically wrecked
by the severe rainstorm of last
month, is being torn down, part
of the material' being used in the
construction of a new house at
Second avenue and Tenth street.
This latter is even older than
the Gandolfo home, having been
built in the 70s. The demoli
tion of the two relics of the, old
town at the same-time makes one
realize more fully how the old
order of things is changing.

fixed upon P. P. Jones, night

his responsibility in failing to
