We extract the following items
from the last issue of the Arizona
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
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.”—

•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
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.—
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.

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
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

with wool which loaded ten narrow

Kinsman Bro’s., St. Louis aud receiv

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
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

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.
