DROUGHTY WEATHER DUE
TO ABNORMAL PRESSURE
According to the weather bureau
of the U. 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.

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.

Data gatheicd by the U. 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.
Rrronnmia nffnrta hpinir made to
have Yavapai county, now occupying
mnrn tVinn n mirth nf the firea of the
territory, divided, this part to be split
on into a new county, nameu matu
county.
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. The Ari
zona Central bank will open next
Monday. The partners chiefly inter
ested arc: F. L. Kimball, of Durango,
Colo.; B. N. Freeman, Durango, and
J. H. Hoskins. forcmrly of Auburn,
N. Y., who will bo resident manager
and cashier.

Twenty buildings were destroyed with
a loss of $100,000. Since then over
70 buildings have been erected, in

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.
