An eastern farmer coming to an frri gated valley finds everything as dif ferent from his accustomed life as he can well imagine. He must learn an entirely' new laniuage of farming and a new set of farming rules. His neigh bor greets him, not with the remark, 'It looks like rain," but "Have you heard when the water is coming In?' or "The ditches are low today." He learns to speak of miners' inches and acre feet of water, and he can soon tell at a glanee whether a ditch is car rying 50 or 100 miners' inches of wa ter. He hears wise discussions of headgates, weirs, laterals and zanjes. He finds that he is "under" a certain canal, which by and by will come to seem to him like an inexorable fate. He will very promptly make the ac quaintance of the king of the irrigated land, the zanjero, in Arizona called "sankero," in California sometimes shortened to "sanky," the water master or ditch rider, a bronzed man in over ails and sombrero, who drives about in a two wheeled cart, 'with a shovel and a long crooked tined fork by his side and precious keys in his pockets. He Is the yea and nay of the arid land, the arbiter of fate, the dispenser of good and evil, to be blessed by turns and cursed by turns and to receive both with the utter unconcern of a sinall god, for it is the zanjero who distrib utes the water. He opens the head gate of each farmer's canal, and when the water has run the necessary time he shuts it down again and again locks it securely. If the water is short, he sees that it is divided properly between Smith and Jones and Brown, usually with Smith and Jones and Brown watching him like cats. It is a hard place, that of zanjero in the valleys, subject to accusations, temptations, heartburnings; but, be it said to the credit of the American,.there is many a s:anjero who is universally respected in his 'community as an honest man. Ray Stannard Baker in Century. Two Babies For a Cent. A novel poster was seen by a recent sojourner in Nova Scotia. It was print ed on rough paper with red paint, in a childish hand, and was tacked to a tel egraph pole in a conspicuous position: "There will be a concert and fair in Mrs. Parson's sitting room today at 2 o'clock sharp. Admission-adults, 5 cents; children, 2 cents; babies, two for a cent." Slittina: Tree Bark. When a young fruit or shade tree stops growing and looks as If it were about to give up the struggle for ex istence, the trouble may often be traced to its being barkbound. In this case a long perpendicular slit In the bark will enable it to resume Its natural growth. A Simple Matter. "John, I'd like you to wake me at 5 o'clock tomorrow morning. I want to catch the early train." "All right, sir; all right," replied the able servitor expressively; "all you got todo sir, Is to ring."-Philadelphia North American. A Bright Student.
