S. department of agriculture tho abnormal summer of the current year was duo to Important changes in the distribution of atmospheric pres suic over tho globe in consequence of which tho usual seasonal interchange of air between equatorial and polar regions was seriously disarranged. Two events stand out prominently in this connection: First, the mild winter of 1920-21 with its very light snowfall and a much decreased thickness of ice in lakes and streams. An unusually warm February removed practically all of tho snow cover in tho United States and even in the northwestern Canadiun Provinces by March I; thereafter in that month tho solar heat that would ordinarily be expend ed in melting snow and ice was de voted to warming the soil and the at mosphere. The" second event, and it is spoken of with less certainty than tho first, was an increase in the height of the barometer over those parts of the At lantic and the Pacific oceans common ly known as region of "semiperman ent high pressure." In other words, tho level of the barometer over parts of the oceans was higher than usual; the effect of this rearrangement of pressuro was to change tho course of rainstorms, which usually pass from west to cast along the northern bound ary, to higher latitudes, viz: central and northern Canada. The result has been a season so dry that yields of some crops have been seriously cur tailed. fi SnEEPMEN MEET TO CONFER ON DRIVEWAY FEED REQUIRED TO MAKE BEEF. ON CORN-BELT FARMS A meeting of driveway users over tho Hchcr-Reno-Round Valley trail was held in the office of tho forest supervisor here last Saturday. The main points brought out in the meet ing were allotments of the trail or ganization, pro-rating of any avail able slack among the existing prefer ences and disposition of any tempor arily accrued surplus. The matter of building separating corrals and de veloping water at advantageous places along the trail was also discussed. The following interested sheepmen were present: James Scott, E. H. Duflicld, D. W. Campbell, George Scott, E. B." Newman, E. A. Sawyer, Geo. H. Wilbur, John Nelson, Jose tElargo, Mr. Otondo, H. C. Hancock, S. A. Sponseller, Fred Purccll, Henry Scorse, Chet I. Houck and Joseph W. Smith. Snowflake Herald. BIG CATTLE RIVE FROM SOUTHERN RANGE A drive of about 1200 head of cattlo was brought into Flagstaff last Satur day for delivery and shipment to ranges in California. The cattlo were rounded up on ranges in the Beaver Creek country and belonged to Bailey & Walker, Ralston Brothers and the U-Bar outfit . The steers were purchased by the O'Connell brothers for shipment to their pastures at King City, Calif., while about 700 head of steers were ken to the Kellum range cast of FlagstafT. It is reported that cows with calves sold for $20 and heifers at $15, steers bringing a much better price. CHAS. P. MULLEN APPOINTED TO STATE LIVE STOCK BOARD Charles P. Mullen, of Yavapai coun ty, former president of the Arizona Cattle Growers association and one of the most prominent cattlemen in this state, has been appointed a member of the livestock sanitary board to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late E.

S. depart ment of agricultuie regarding the daily gain and ho amount of feed and pasture consumed by 34,934 steers fat tened on corn belt farms during the last two winters, are of value to beef producers as an indication of how much iced is required on mo average corn belt farm to produce 100 pounds of train. The average weight of all the cat tle at the start of the feeding period was 786 pounds, while the final weight was 1,070 pounds, the gain amounting to 284 pounds in a period of 174 days. The average quantity of feed con sumed for 100 pounds of gain was C80 pounds of grain, C2 pounds of com mercial concentrates, 391 pounds of dry roughage such as hay and corn fodder, 8G3 pounds of silage, and the equivalent of 20 days of pasturage. In addition to these co-operative feeding trials with cattlemen in In diana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri, tho U. S. department of ag riculture is conducting investigations in southwestern Wisconsin to deter mine the costs and amounts of feed required to fatten cattle on grass, with and without a supplement, and of the feed required to maintain a breeding herd of beef cattle for one year, and to raise calves from weaning time to yearlings. CHANGES OF TEMPERATURE CURL CONCRETE ROADS That tho edges of concrete roads curl up and down in rcponse to changes in temperature is tho discov ery recently made by the bureau of public roads of the U. S. dcpaitmcnt of agriculture in tho course of experi ments at the department's experi mental farm at Arlington, Va. Curling is caused by the unequal expansion and contraction of the up per and lower sides of tho concrete slab under the influence of heat. It has been observed during the middle of tho day when the surfaco of tho road becomes hot that it expands more than the cooler underside and causes the sides to move downward. At night when the surface is cool the contrac tion causes the edges to rise slightly. Tho extreme movement may be as much as one-tenth of an inch. While tho warping of the concrete is not in itself detrimental to the road it may lead to failure of the surfaco under the wheels of vehicles which travel over it when parts of it arc not resting on the ground. FIELD STATION WILL ASSIST NEBRASKA POTATO GROWERS The temporary field station opened at Alliance, Neb., August 25, is among the first marketing field stations es tablished to assist producers in mar keting the potato crop of western Nebraska. The office will operate dur ing the heavy shipping season or un til about November 15. During this period daily reports will be issue! showing primary destination, ship ments for the country by state, ship ping point conditions, and prices in the six important producing sections, and car-lot quotations at Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago and Omaha. The station is one of many established by the bureau of markets and crop esti mates of the U. S. department of ag riculture at various, important pro ducing sections throughout the coun try during tho shipping season. Thru the daily reports issued at the sta tions, producers and shippers are able to market their crops to better ad vantage. o IN DAYS OF YORE (From the Coconino Sun Files of February 12, 1887) The present railway mail service is little better than a burlesque. Tho old pony express was slower, but more sure.

The Arizona legislature has re pealed the territorial and Mormon laws. Our efforts to have a bank started in Flagstaff have met with success. "Tho Bank of Flagstaff" will be open ed in 10 days. The enterprise is started by W. G. Stewart, of Flag staff, and E. S. Clark, of Albuquerque, who will manage it. There's a move on foot to move the Anachn countv seat from St. Johns to Holbrook. Mrs. Michael B. Brannen is dead. Now what do you know about that? Just got through writing about a bank being started, when wo learn there s still another one forming.

Lot Smith and twenty armed men took forcible possession of a ranch and store at Mocn Copi. The prop rietors, Dittcnhapper, Stone and Barney Williams had to yield to the Mormons. Thos. S. Hubbcll, of Tuba City, went to their rescue with nine men but was warned by Smith's men, who were armed with revolvers and Winchesters, to keep away. Smith at first refused to yield up his pris oners the three store owners named above and Stone's wife but after a conference with Hubbell finally let them go. Williams, Dittcnhapper and Stone at once came to Flagstaff, and Sheriff John W. Francis, with James L. Black and Sheriff C. P. Owen of Apache county, and several others, started for Moencopi to capture the raiders. Owen has a warrant against Smith charging polygamy. Hubbell once tried to serve it but Smith pulled a gun and escaped. Geo. D. Crothers, teacher of the Flagstaff school, reports 53 mipils en rolled, with average daily attendance of 30. Willie Ashurst was the only pupil neither absent nor tardy last month. "FIGHTING PARSON" FOR, WITH AND OF HIS PEOPLE. The Rev. Earl A. Blackman's annual resignation again has been rejected by the congregation of the Christian church at Chanute, Kansas. Once a year, regularly, since the war, Rev. Mr. Blackman has given his parishioners the choice of accept ing his advocacy of boxing bouts, dancing and pool, or of hiring a new pastor. While the vote each year has been heavily in hi3 favor, it is by no means unanimous. "You will -find mo in the boxing ring, the dance halls, the lodge halls, the pool halls, perhaps in the alleys, or wherever men congregate, if I con tinue to preach to the Christian Church of Chanute," was the ultimat um contained in tho minister's recent resignation. Not only was the resignation reject ed the congregation voted its pastor an increase in salary. This he refus ed to accept, declaring he was amply paid, and that ho earns something in addition to his salary by referecing boxing bouts. Furthermore, he declar es he has a "double reason for enhanc ing his earning capacity." "Twins recently came to our house' he said. "If some person is to bo paid for refereeing and I do the work sat isfactorily, I ought to have the mon ey to help support those twins." His services as a referee arc today in much demand in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. His presence in the ring is regarded as a guarantee of a clean fight. His influence has been felt throughout this section. It was while he was chaplain of the 137th Infantry of tho 35th Division in France that the Rev. Mr. Blackman became a devotee of the fistic game. He was known as "the fighting par son of the 35th" and justly so, for he not only supervised but engaged in many boxing bouts. In his own church the Chanute min ister has put into practice his theory that the church should sponsor both boxing and dancing in the church. o Give The Sun Your Job Printing. 35!
