We extract the following items from the last issue of the Arizona Kieker: The Last Straw—For the last six months Major Davis ot this burg has lost no opportunity of abusing u* and boasting of what he would do if we did not step softly. The reason for this conduct lies in tho fact that the Kicker not only called him a horse thief, but proved him a biga mist besides. Last Saturday the Major, who has no more right to that title than a ranle has to “professor,” borrowed a shotgun and gave out that he had camped on our trail and meant to riddle our system with buckshot on sight. Word was brought to us, aud, although we were busy at the timfe superintending our combined weekly newspaper, harness shop, grocery, bazaar and gun store (all under one roof and the largest retail establishment iu Arizona), we laid aside our work and went over to Soyder’s saloon in search of the Major. We fonnd him, and we gave him each a whipping as no man m this town ever got before. He lies a broken aud stranded wreck on the shores of time, so to speak, and doctor says it will be six weeks be fore be will find any more trails or do any more camping. Slipped a Cog —ln company with tho elite of this neighborhood wc were invited to the adobe of Judge Graham last Thursday evening to witness the marriage of County Clerk Dan Scott to the beautiful Arabella Johnson, only daughter of the aristocratic widow Johnson of Day Horse flights. The widow had made a spread worthy of the days ot Cleopatra, and Dan had on a new suit sent by exnrrss from Omaha for the occasiou. Everything passed off pleasantly until 8 o'clock, at which hour the bride was discovered to be missing, and an investigation soon brought out the fact that 6he had gone dea-l back on Dan aud skipped the tra-la, whatever that is, with a bold cowboy named French Jim. She left a message to the effect that she could never, never love a man with a cataract iu his left eye, and that meant Dan. There was a feast, but do wedding, and Dan will have to try again.—Detroit Free Press. There are hundreds of acres of land in this county that will, in a few years be set out to fruit. The many fine orchards now in bearing leave no doubt in the minds of any who may see that the Arkansas val ley is adapted especially to fruit cul ture, and the mountainous couutry adjacent turnish.es a never failing market for all that can possibly be raised in this fertile yalley. The men who bays five or ten acres of land and sets it to fruit, in a remark ably short time has a lifetime sup port from it, besides a home that is attractive to the most arbitrary mind, a home where nature makes every thing pleasant, and where health is attained in connection with wealth. We do not hold Canon up as the place for the man with nothing to start on to make a fortune, for a man must have a few hundred dollars to start with if he expects to make more than a living, but to the man who is pos sessed with means to purchase a small tract of land and set to fruit there ia no other point in the great Centennial state that offers such groat attractions.—Fremont County News. Candidates for office would do well to announce themselves in this paper. A candidate for office who talks for a long time to a very few ot the most intimate of his friends does himself a serious injury. While A is doing this B is doing the same thing for the same office, where if he had announced himself in the start B would never have thought of being a candidate. We know of an instance now of that kind in this county.—Rocky Ford Enterprise. “Rally Round the Flag, Boys!" The Grand Army Reunion to be held at Milwaukee (August 26th to 31st inclusive), will, in many respects, bo one of the most noteworthy of cormuetnorative events. There will bo no lack of distinguished speakers. But the most attractive features will be the “tie that binds” men who have fought, starved and bled for a sacred cause, the renewal of old-timo associ ntious, the rehersal of war experi ences, and the rekindling upon toe altar of patriotism of undying devo tion to “one flag aud one country.” Veterans and their friends will be pleased to know that from all sta tions on the CniCAGo, Rock Isla.vd Pacific Railway, on its main lines and branches both east and west of the Missouri River, the price of tickets has been placed for this occasion at one fare for the round trip, while children under twelve and over five years of age will be charged only one-half this excursion rate, or one-quarter the regular fare for the round trip. Tickets will bo for sale at all principal stations on the Rock Island Route August 21 to Aug. 28, ’B9, inclusive, good for continuous passage to Milwaukee at any time between these dates, aud good for return passage leaving Milwaukee on any date between Aug. 27 and Sept. 3, ISS9, inclusive. Holders of such rickets who desire to make side excursions from Milwaukee to points beyond in any direction, can, by sur rendering their return coupon tickets for safe keeping to the Joint Agent at Milwaukee, have them honored to original starting point where ticket was purchased (by proper indorse ment), on any date not later than Sept. 30, ISB9. A dispatch from Detmning, New Mexico, says: “Lieutenant Schwatka has arrived here. His party has been successful beyond expectations in their exploratidns, and especially in Southern Chihuahua, where living cliff and cave dwellers were found iii great abundance, wild as any of the Mexican tribes at the time of Cortez’s conquest. The abodes they live in arc exactly similar to the old, aban doned cliff dwellings of Arizona and New Mexico, about which there has been much speculation. It was al most impossible to get near them, so wild and timid were they. Upon the approach of white people, they flee to their caves by notched sticks plac ed against the face of ths cliffs, if steep, although they can ascend verti cal stone faces if there are the slight est crevices for their fiugers and toes. Theso cliff dwellers are sun worship ers, putting their new-born children out in the full rays of the sun the first day of their lives, and showing rnauy other forms of devotion to the great lummary. They are usually tall, lean, and well-formed, their skin being a blackish red, much nearer the color of tho negro than the cop per-colored Indian of the United States. Schwatka claims that noth ing has heretofore been known about these people, except by tho half-In dian mountain Mexicans, and thinks his investigation will be of immense anthropological and archieological value. He estimates the cave and cliff dwellers to be from 3,000 to 12,- 000 in number, armed only with bows, arrows, and stone hatchets.”— Miniug and Scientific Review. •Says tho Peoria Farmer: “The farmer feeds all, clothes all, furnish es all, has to meet all expenses, yet by the elite he is called ‘old hayseed.’ If ho has anything to sell, the buyer feels of it, tastes, smells, bandies it —‘Rather low grade; cau’t give full price for that article!” Brother farmer, let's have a party of our own. Call it “Hayseed,” no lawyers or oth er classes in it who are ail mouth. We want brains to take care of the hayseed. Now let farmers determine, once for all, to stand squarely by their business. Praise it for all it is worth, not condemn it because it wont run itself and carry us besides. Talk it up, not down. Encourage it by pat ting it on the back, not send it off iu sulky mood with a kick and a growl. It is royal good business, but it will not stand abuse nor ueg lect. Stay close by it. Put grit, pluck, determination into it. Pin your faith to it; but do not forget that faith is evidenced by work. Is not just here one of the troubles? Are not too many of us trying to make the farm work itself? Theor izing will not answer. It takes farm ing to “make the farm pay.” Think ing and talking, and planning, and learning can never be substituted for doing, they are only aids to it.— Exchange. Crops in this section are looking as well as could be desired by even the worst croaker. We venture to make the assertion that there is coro near this town which is higher than the average in this altitude, notwith standing it is the first year that this cereal was planted here, and some of the ground being sod turned over last spring. After the ground has been thoronghly cultivated in this region the farmers will be just as certain of a crop as anywhere in the United States. Wo do not desire that anyone should come here to make it his home without first see ing the country and growing crops. —Mulvane News. Judge Felton, of Canon City, says there is a difference between the soil on the north and south side of the Arkansas river. On the south side there is a sandy loam, and there the Concord grape does well; on the north side the soil is a heayy imper vious adobe, where the water stands around the roots too long and the grapes sour. There the Concord does not thrive well. Mr. McKay has cleared from three-quarters of an acre of Concord grapes on the south bide of the Arkansas $1,200, making at a rate of $1,600 per acre, but it is said that Mr. Faurot has dobe even better in Boulder.—Field and Farm. Without doubt the most energetic and onterpiisiog farmer m the valley is a lady. Last year Miss Amanda Coffin, sister of S. D. Coffin, took a claim adjoining the South Farm, containing 16G acres and a fraction. She has improved all of it and to-day has in 166 acres ot growing crops and the farm is well improved, every foot is in crops save the yard, which she is ornamentiug with trees and lawn. Of course she simply super intends the work, hut for energy, business judgement, ambition and Derve, we never saw her equal. She will win and make a fortune. We commend her example.—Monte Vista Suu. Probably most persons are not aware that in addition to the regular American flag there is an official Hag of the President which he alone is authorized to use and which is never displayed except in bis honor. The flag is a dark blue, with a white eagle with outstreatched wings and hold ing a shield in its claws. Above this eagle and between its wings are seven white stars and beneath it, half oa each side, aro six more, the thirteen being emblematical ot the original states. This same design was the official flag of President Washington and it has not been al tered to the present time. Fred Meyer came up from Cost’lla, N. M., last Tuesday and was follow ed by thirty-three wagons loaded with wool which loaded ten narrow gange cars. The wool was sold to Kinsman Bro’s., St. Louis aud receiv ed by their agent at this point.—Fort Garland Bepublicau. NUMBER 5. Frank Hoffman presented the Re publican office with the handsome specimens of potatoes and oats to be seen hanging over ye editor’s desk. The potatoes are the finest we have seen this season. Mr. Hoffman is one of onr most enterprising farmers, having placed at last year’s fair the remarkable exhibit of seventy-five different varieties of vegetables, which he had raised on his own farm. This year he will be no whit behind, but from the appearance of his garden and crops will be able to make even a finer display. That is * the stuff that farmers are made of.—- Vilas Republican. As the “little bare foot” season is at hand, says an exchange, we are re minded that during the period we otten hear of one who has stuck a rusty nail in bis foot and lock-jaw has resulted therefrom. All such wounds can be healed without any fatal consequences following them. The remedy is simple. It is only necessary to smoke such a weund, or any wound or bruise that is inflamed, with burning wool or woolei\ cloth. Twenty minutes in the smoke of wool will take the pain out of the worst case of inflamation arising from a wound. A signal officer at Montrose went out to his weather box and when he thrust bis hand therein he pull* cd it out mighty sudden like. Then out of the box buzzed a swarm of bees aud tackled him on all sides, and the way he sawed the air with both hands and feet, in a vain en deavor to ward off the “brutes,” showed that he was way up in gym nastics and the manly art of self-de fense. The bees it seems had gotten into the box and took possession of the same for their hivfe.—Field and Farm. Parties from Tucson, yesterday, at tempted to photograph the Indians in the neighborhood of the old church, but encountered many diffi culties. The Indians run like sheep, and every time an attempt was made to take a picture, nothing but their heels could be seen in the Brush. The men were as bad as the women, and apparently had the same fear of the mysterious looking box. Tucson (Arizona) Citizon. F. M. Friend has twenty-eight, acres in wheat which he expects to haryest next week. It was sown late last fall and did not come up until this spring, aud yet it is estimated that it will average fifteen bushels per acre. Every year serves to de monstrate the fact that souheast Col orado is a good wheat country.— Springfield Herald. A curious ceremony at the White House recently was “the cremation of bushels of letters written to Presi dent Cleveland by cranks.” Isn’t it a little rough on the disappointed Democratic office-seekers to call him a crank—especially as his party has been out of office for twenty-five years.—Pueblo Merry World. There was a wide range in the po tato yield of Colorado last year. Some men obtained as high as five hundred bushels from the acre, while others got but a hundred. The dif ference was all in the cultivation. Potatoes and corn will prosper bat poorly with poor care.—Field and Farm. *A number of Granada Odd Fel lows attended the pnblio installation of the officers of the Lamar Lodge on Wednesday night and were royal ly entertained by the hospitable peo ple of that town. —Granada Expo , nent. Mr. Joseph Konklc, of Boston, passed through Granada on Wednes day with the old Boston World out fit on his way to Lyons, Kansas, where he \yill start another newspa per of Bourbon proclivities.—Grana da Exponent.
