Now that the harvest is
nearly over it is ascertain
ed beyond a peradventure
that the wheat and barley
crop in Salt Rivr Valley
is large. The Gila Valley
usually produces an enor
mous quantity of that grain
but this year very little
has been raised there, ow
ing to the lack of water
for irrigation. The late
abundant rains will insure
fodder in the Northern
part of the Territory but
it has come to l ite for the
coin,- so that crop will be
nearly a failure this year.
This state of affairs in the
surrounding country will
give- the . farmers of Salt
River Valley a market for
all their grain at remuner
ative prices. Barley has
advanced a quarter and
wheat half a cent since har
vest began, with an up

A Word of Kindness.
How sofilv on the bruised heart
A word of kindness falls.
And to the dry and parched soul
Ihe moist run? tear-drop calls;
Oh ! if they knew who walk the earth
uid sorrow, erne! ana pain.
Tbe power a word of kindness hath,
"1 were paraaise again.
The weakest and the poorest may
1 he simple pittance give.
And bid delight to withered hearts
lieturn again ana live ! -
Oh ! what is life if love be lost,
If man s unkind to man T
Or what the heaven that waiU beyond
This brief and mortal span ? '
As stars upon tbe tranquil sea,
In minute glory shine,
So words of kindness in the heart
Reflect the source divine.
Oh ! then be kind whoe'er thou art
That breathes the mortal breath ;
And it shall brighten all thy life,
And sweeten even death.

loon keeper at the Peck mine, and
Murphy, a miner, became involved
in a dispute relative to a division of
some money which Murphy had
won at poker the night before with
a stake given him by Waters Tbe
latter called Murphy a "thieving
sou of a b " and both pulled at
the same time, and turned loose.
Waters received a flesh wound iQ

tol struck the cylinder of Murphy's
revolver and split, half of it going
through Murphy'r) right sleeve.
Five shot were fired, when both

Miner : A handsome baker was
going along Montezuma street with
his arms tull of bread ; and sur
mounting the latter there was a
Lirge, hard. Ions sausage. One of
the loaves of bread descended to
mother earth, whereupon the child
of dough stooped down to try to
pick it up, which caused him to
drop the sausage, too. Being a
German, he exclaimed : "Veighn I
drop die broad dat vas bod, but
veighn I lose him lausagc, dat vas
bad zu worst."
Sentitwh The arrival here of a
single shipment of over 100,000
pounds of salt for the Ilackbcrry
quartz mill, shipped by rail from
San i rancisco, is not an altogether
pleasant thing to contemplate. Of
course the railroad company deliv
ers it at a price that benefits the
quartz-mill, and to that extent bene
fits the country. But on the other
hand this competition shuts out a
large number of men and teams
which were developing the great
rock-salt mines of the Virgin and
Muddy, and to that extent injures
the country. Ox teams have no
chance to compete with a railroad
and steamboat that cirries salt over
1,000 miles for less than one cent
per pound. If other goods were
brought into Arizona at the same
rates, then indeed could our joy be
unmixed. But there are two ways
of looking at this salt business.
Sentinel : Prescott freight is like
ly to lake a new route from Yu
ma. Several freighters have
offered to haul from there
to Prescott at 6 to 7 cents
per pound, and tor less as the roads
get packed, or grain gets cheaper.
At present that freight goes from
Ehrcnberg at 4J to 5 cents per
pound, and from l uma to Ehren
berg by steamboat at S20 per ton,
measurement, equivalent to Ij to 2
cents per ound weight. I be pro
position is to go by way of Burke's
and Wickchburg, bringing lumber
to Phenix and getting cheap grain
there on return trip. This last can
not be done on the Ehreuberg road.
As the railroad progresses up the
Gil t this new route will be adopted
anyhow, freight being delivered to
teams at new depots.
Sentinel: Truman did not come
out here, after all, to investigate
mail matters; and wc are glad of it,
for he perhaps would have done no
work heavier than hunting shade.
Prehaps the P. 0. Department
thought so too; a man has been sent
out who has fewer political patrons,
but who is willing to work. Un
fortunately his efforts are to be
chiefly directed toward detection of
robbers; he therefore requests that
his name and destination be not
made public. But Arizona can
still hope that live Agents may yet
ba appointed, who will look after
mail abuses quite as intolerable as
Miner A meeting of the cred
itors of the estate of S. C. Miller Jc
Co., was lately held. The accoun's

sented, audited and allowed, show

estate was S6.560 69. Amount, dis
bursed by assignee, in settling up
estate, $3,7(37 51, leaving balance
as hist stated. A dividend ot 3 I
per cent, was declared to the credit
ors. Indebtedness against the es
tate to the amount of $45,560 02
has been provcu.
Miner: From present indications
the count' y about the Tiger mine
w'dl, within the ensuing six months,
have three mills in active operation.
The mill for the Orr Bouito mine
is on its way ; Mr. Helm, the super
intendent of the Tiger, has gone to
San Francisco to arrange for the
erection of a mill for that mine,
with every assurance of success ;
and the immediate erection of a
mill upon the Gray Eagle mine is
almost a certainty.
3finer: A "hasty bowl of soup"
looking individual, with a horse at
the end of a riata, threw open the
dining room door, this noon, at the
Bon Ton restaurant and inquired in
a stentorian tone of voice. "Can I
get dinner h-re in two hours ?"
"Well," said thu Japanese propri
etor very politely, "we have only
three mt.-n here to wait on the table,
but I think we can bring you out
all we have in that time."
Miner: Davis will carry Mohave
county by a large majority. Wool
scy will c.irry Marie p x, Pinal and
Yuma. He will come into Yava
pai ahead of Campbell 700 votes,
and lead Steveus and Davis about
500. He will stand either of the
other candidates off in Yavapai and
beat Campbell jn Prescott. That's
what's the matter with Hannah.
