MOHAVE COUNTY MINEB, FEBRUARY 13,1897
It is, to Bay the least, absurd to watch
the publication of the various trade journ
als throughout tne country, endeavoring
to establish the fact that the low prices
reigning supreme in the agricultural
markets of our country are due to an
over production. The fact remains, not
withstanding the effort to conceal it, that
there is not an overpioduction ot any one
product of the soil. The carefully com
piled satistics show that instead of their
being an over production, there is an un
der consumption, in other words the peo
ple are not consuming as much as they
should for the reasou that they have not
the money with which to buy. The pop
ulation of our country is rapidly increas
ing at the rate of a million and a half a
year, making an increased demand for
the products of the soil. Why, with Uiib
increased population, and a diminished
supply of products should the value of
the products sink? It stands to reason
that with an increased population and a
diminished consumption that prices
should rise instead of fall. The falling of
prices is not from over production. It is
absurd on its face and cannot stand the
slightest investigation. With hundreds
of thousands of people out of employment,
with the s:ates and territories supporting
thousands of men, women and children
on public money, with the vist number
of people that are tramping over the
country, should demonstrate that there
is not an overproduction with these con
ditions of affairs existing Wh-it we need
is the truth, and as long as newspapers
throughout the country will be bound so
much to partisan, political theories that
they cannot tell anything to the people
that is not in harmony with their iheory,
it is the duty of the people to investigate
for themselves S'ar.
Tha, exact amount appropriated by
England last week to carry on the navy
was 109,115.000$ This includes the con
struccion of five new battleships of 12,
900 tons each, four &ri class, three 80
ond class and six third class cruisers,
and twenty-eight torpedo boat destroy
ers. In addition to this expenditure no
les3 thin 70 200,000$ wis voted for de
fensive works, dockyarl ex'ension and
naval barracks, at home and abroad, to
be completed in the course of the next
ten years. Here is an appropriation in a
singie year of over 179 000,000$ to main

One of our prominent physicians had
an experience last eveninir that he will
not soon forget and hereafter when he
enters the residence of a patient he will
be sure that he knocks and waits until
the door is opened for him before lie en
ters. The doctor has been waiting on a
family in the east end for some time and
had become so intimate with the family
that he had ceased to knock for admis
sion when he calletl, but simply opened
the door and walked in. Last evening
his patient, who is a lady, and who is
confined to her bed, was alone in the
house, with the exception of the hired
girl, her husband being at work, when
the doctor called. Th sick woman
beard some one enter the house and tak
ing it for granted that it was some per
son who had no business there she took
a revolver from a nearby shelf, where it
is kept for emergencies, and taking a
bead on the door held it there cocked
and ready to be discharged as soon as
the door was opened. The doctor, not
suspecting anything wrong, slowly opened
the door, only to find himself looking
down the barrel of the revolver while the
excited woman behind it was likely to
press the trigger at any moment. The
doctor jumped behind the door with an
entreaty to the lady not to fire which,
of course, was heeded, and a fatal mis
take was narrowly averted. Phenix

gives an account of the death of an old
man in Guaymas bv the name of O.
White, aged about 56 years, of pneu
monia. White was a prospector and
when not prospecting was frequently
compelled to beg food. After his death,
while some one was hunting through an
old wallet to find some clew to White's
identity, a letter was found from a Bos
ton firm offering 50,000$ in cash for his
mine, the Blanca, situated twenty five
leagues from Sahuaripa. The old man
had evidently refused the offer, as the
letter was received some months ago and
the title still remained in his name. Not
a cent was found in the cabin and the
old man's body was buried at public expense.

is crushed into small lumps and is then
put into a closed chamber, subjected to
the heat of a furnace, to the action of
wa'er, and of hydrogen gas. This elimi
nates sulphur and reduces all oxides to
the metallic state. After belnt: heated
the ma'erlal is suddenly cooled by jets of
water, an operation repeated peveral

at the touch of the fii.ger. It is then
thrown into a tank and the gold is seja
