A Letter from Arizona*
Safford, Arteona, Nov. JW. 1902,
Editors BiteUigencer:.Perhaps some
0{ your readers woola be glad to hear
^Iha've been here one year and lind
ravselB decidedly improved in health.
I?annot say I am qjt?te jweH, butl
cherish the fond hopo that I may in the
not far distant f?tare be ablei tc*make
that statement. . This te KU idedl win
tering place cliopt?cally. The fonder
jg that more people from the East and
Southeast do nof come here to winter.
People with wet'* lungs would sorely
be benefited by a stay here. ?
Salford is on the Gila Bi vet (pro
nounced Hehi River.) Notwithstand
ing, it is in the "iahtet of the "Great
American Deafer**t j??u oesis, being
supplied with water for irrigation from
the Gila Uiver, consequently green
trees, graeees and crops are abundant.
The finest fruits g.ow here. It would
-delight your eyes to see some of the
orchards with ac; ?a of apples, pears,
peaches, plums, apricots, prunes and
quinces. Many of lie apple trees are
still laden with beautiful, large red
apples, which sell readily from l to 8
cents a ponnd attheorchard. Altbongh
we are over 2,900 feet above sea ?evel;
we have many artesian wells in the
valley that help out the irrigation, and
famish to those who take the trouble
to go for it, good drinking water. The
ordinary well water te so impregnated
with alkali and other minerals that it
is not good for drinking, yet many
people use it.
Religiously, this is a pretty tough
place Recently I saw ? book, the title
of which was "The Country God For
got." lt treated of Arizona. Judging
from the lives of most of the people
they live as if they either thought ?od
had forgotten this Territory or that
"there is no God," as thc fool says in
his heart. We have heard of a family
long ago that were ready to move from
Georgia to the frontier of Texas. The
friends of the family, with the pastor
of the Church, called to spend the lase
evening with this family before their
departure the next day* As was befit
ting such an occasion, the pastor was
asked to pray for the family, and all
knelt. He prayed fervently and with
deep interest. As he said "amen" the
little 5-year-old daughter rose saying
audibly, "Good-bye, tiod, weare going
to Texas.'' Many of the-people who
come here live as if they nan said on
starting here, "Good-bye, God, I am
going to Arizona, the country that you
forgot." While this is true, there are
some as trne and loyal Christians here
ns I've ever met anywhere. But they
are clot aa ? numerous. It * wouie be
more fitting to repeat tb the maje ri ty
of Arizonians the 18tk verco of. the ? '?ucl
chapter of Deuteronomy,
There axe many- Mormons here? but.
since they teach that God woe once a
man, that Adam is ?ow a god and
they all expect tobe gods, one need
not be surprised that the infidel has
very: little respect fer such godo, and
do not wish to fall into their hands.
if our people only knew the troth of
Mormonism they would weep over it,
pray over it, and spend freely their
means to give the truth of the Bible
to these poor? deluded people. It ia
hard to reach them, for they will not
come out to bear the truth,, still that
fact does not free the Christian from
tho wbligati>U( to give them, even
though un withe ar to hear it, the Good
News. We do hope the United States
Constitution will be so amonded as to
prohibit the teaching ofjpoligamy,' and
that the enforcement of that law will
bc putin the hands of the national
government. The recent election in
Utah is a fair illustration of Mormonism
in politics. It Bas been said that in
the election "Utah went Mormon."
Bo it will ever be where tho Mormons
are in the majority, or can win by com
bining with either political.party. But
enough on so unpleasant a subject.
We are always,glad to hear from our
friends in South Carolina, and should
any of them feel enough interest in ne
to t write us, we would answer their
The weather is delightful. We have
had ice several mornings, which is
cooler than usual here, Groham Moun
tains, the base of which ?B ten miles
and the top 35 miles from here, is cap
ped with snow which will remain there
till next April or May. But snow does
not fall here in the valley often, and
sot much. ,
Wishing you a merry Christmas and
a prosperous New Year.
I aru truly,
C. Wardlaw.
