Boswick stated that the plans were being drawn for three distinct propositions, which included, first, a palatial residence for the owner, a resort hotel to accommodate a large number of tourists and the building of an electric railway from Flagstaff to the rim of the Grand Canyon with the terminus at Grand View. There was to be no connection with the railroad run ning from Williams to El Tovar and the project of Mr. Hearst was to be, in short, a purely individual and independent one, so far as other interests were to be considered in an interlock ing sense. As to when the railroad will begin building or from what source the power is to be drawn were facts not given publicity, but it is believed the immense undertaking will be practically initiated not later than June or July of the present year. Speaking of reports in circulation and published through out the country that Mr. Hearst was to make Arizona his home, to gain recognition as an aspirant for future senatorial honors from this State, Mr. Boswick stated that such an impression was without any foundation whatever, and should be dispelled as a political forecast of the future. Mr. Hearst is to make New.York City his base of operations , J but will be a frequent visitor to Grand View, where he will main- I tain a home and entertain his than that of a private citizen and who is appreciative of its Normal School News The Agricultural Department of the Normal school has just issued a bulletin entitled "Agriculture in Vicinity of Flagstaff, Arizona." As the title suggests, the pamph let treats in a general way of agri cultural conditions in this vicinity with suggestions for their im provement. Many business men are sending copies of the bulletin to out of town friends so they may see what this corner of Ari zona is doing in the way of farm ing. A copy may be had by ad dressing the Agricultural Depart ment or by seeing Mr. Willis E. Berg, in charge of agricultural work at the Normal. Miss Reta Russell is back at her duties again, after a few days illness. .She is enjoying a visit from her mother: Mrs. J. Frank Russell of Modesto, California. Mrs. Russell intends to return to California in a couple of weeks. Some of the students in geom etery expressed themselves the other day as enjoying that subject. It is very unusual to find a whole class liking any study in mathe matics, so an inquiry in this case demonstrated that it is' due to the way the subject is taught, Mr. Edward F. Honn, in charge of mathematics, believes that the science of numbers and geometri cal principles can be made pleas urable and interesting as well as useful, and has worked long striv ing to make his teaching conform to his ideals in that respect. As usual, mathematics is one of the strong courses planned for the coming summer school. Considerable excitement was created last Monday after school by the two basket ball games. Mr. Rosenberry and Mr. Honn each choose a girl's and boy's team at general exercises Monday morning. These teams played one anotner inai evening, me games were fast but far from being as good as those the teams might have played, if they had been In practice. The boys game was the closest. At the end of the first half Honn's boys were one point ahead, and the same was true of the final score which stands 6 to 7. Mr. Rosenberry's girl's team evened things up how ever, they were too fast for their opponents. The final score stands 7 to 2. The girls played ten rninute halves, while the boys played first twelve then fifteen minutes. The teams played alternately thus ob taining longer rests which was much needed because of fast play and no training. Mr. Rosenberry refereed the boy's game and Mr. Honn the girls.

X Superior Court Proceeding Esteban Salozar and Elisceo Irias two young men who raised a Santa Fe check from $1.90 to $11.90, and who plead guilty to the charge, after being arrested at Winslow, were released from cus tody under probation, sentence having been suspended by Judge Perkins during good behavior.

March 13-it BIG FEES TURNED IN BY COMMISSONER During the month, of February, the shortest in the year, the Ari zona Corporation Commission has collected and turned into the gen eral .fund of Arizona the sum of $31,030.51, or $1, 475.25 for each of the twenty-one working days in the month. Compared with the fees col lected in February, 1913, the in crease in the amount of work done by the Commission becomes at once apparent. In February of last year the Commission collec ted from all sources the sum of J4.958.29, or $234.20 for each of the twenty-one working days. Taken from another angle, the past month's fees become impor tant for the reason that the Com mission collected $6,030.51 more than the total appropriation of $25,000 made by the last State Legislature for the payment of the annual expenses of the Commis sion. Should the collection for one year continue as great as during February, the collections would amount to $404,695.15.
