Arizona has a history which haa
never been written, says a letter to the
San Francisco Chronir.le.. Tr. I nnlv
told by tho empty irrigating canals,
tho ruins of nonuloui towns, vacant
cliff dwellings, inscribed rocks, and
uroKon potterv found in manv tiarts of
tho territory. Before the European
saw his continent two races hud lived
and died in Arizona. The oarliost noo-
ple built their houses in valleys that
are now qood ravines, and the cliff
dwellings that are seen to-day resting
in the sides of deep arroyos two hun
dred foet above the bottom of the
gorge once Btood upon solid ground.
and yet so many years have elapsed
since then that now the houses are high
and dry and accessible only to hardy
climbers. Time has dug away the
foundations as well as scarred and
chipped the habitations. Botweon
the age of tho cliff dwellers and that of
tho white man conio the race who built
tho canals and farmed the valleys.
Dry and parched and barren as a great
part of Arizona Is to-day, there was a
time, of which abundant proof exists.
when the valleys were rich and fertile
and when great cities were populated
by an active, capable, and energetic
people. Who were these industrious
boings? No ono can tell. Tolteo or
Aztec, black or white, from Egypt or
from Peru, none can say. Time has
nearly destroyed evidences of their ex
istence. In the lapse of ages their
history has grown almost a mythology.
What a race they were, though! No
farming for them, if you please, on
any small scale. Ihev had ditches to
bring water to their crops that would
astonish the soil-tillers of to-day, and
their houses were castles.
Perhaps the most extensive of their
ruins now are at a place called Casa
Grande, in the Gila river valley, six
miles below Florence and live miles
south of the river. When first discov
ered by tho Spaniards, in 1540, the
largest building of tho group was four
stories high and had walls six foot in
thickness. A hundred vears ago one
bouse still remained which was 420x
200 feet. To-dav there is but a sugges
tion left of the former magnificence of
the houses, but one may still see that
the walls were made of mud and
gravel, held together by a hard ce
ment, and the rooms are still coated
with cement. Near Casa Grande are
the remains of an irrigating canal
which has been traced for forty miles,
and which must have watered thou
sands of acres which to-day are dry,
neglected wastes. Miles of these
wide canals can bo seen scattered over
the territory. Everywhere are the evi
dences of a prehistoric occupation of
the land. In building tho city of l'res
cott, workmen unearthed not only
household and farming implements,
but discovered old foundations as well,
and as Arizona is settled and explored
there may yet be found more traces of
the people who lived and died here,
leaving suggestion as to who they
were, whero they came from, whither
they went What care we for Pompoii?
We have a vaster, richer field in which
to search for treasures hid for untold
A ConstaiitiijniuiHi t ire Company.
We soon caught sight of the c.iptuin
of the company. He was a tall athletic
fellow, wearing short, loose trousers of
white cotton cloth. His legs were bare
below the knees; he wore Turkish red
pointed shoes on his feet, without any
stockings a loose jacket of brown felt
over a wnite cotton snirt, ana nis neaa
was covered with a metallic bowl, which
shone brightly. A leather belt encir
cled his waist, and was clasped with a
large brass buckle in front He was
coming towards us at a double quick
trot, brandishing, in a proud manner,
the brass spout that belonged to the
nose. He was followed by the engine
and the tiremen that belonged to it
Oh, what a sight! Most of them were
scantily clothed, and some did not even
have caps upon their heads, out i no
ticed that all wore the regulation belt
with the large bucklo in front They
were evidently of the class that com
posed the nffran of tho city, lne en
gine itself was nothiug more than a
big-sized garden pump, carried on tho
shoulders of eight men, four in front
aid four behind. They relieved one
another every now and then with great
dexterity and alortness.
1 hey soon swept by us, followed by
the hose, which was coiled over a long
pole, the ends of which rested on the
shoulders of another tile of men. Just
as they reached the next corner, there
emerged from a side street another en
gine, whereupon a squabblo for the
right of way immediately arose. The
two companies jostled and pushed for
ward, each party trying to get ahead
of the other. After a long harangue
and bluster, accompanied by constant
yelling, scroaming, and hard words,
they lowered their respective engines
to the ground and fell into a regular
fight wrestling, pushing, and knock
ing ouo another down in tho most foro
cious manner. Their looks and actions
were frantic and they fought like madmen.
"Ah! There comes the Ser-Askor,
tho minister of war! Ho'll soon settle
their disputo!" cried a voico near us.
And ho did.
He was preceded by a nevobeljee,who
cloared the way for him, and when he
came up he promptly ordored the com
panies to take up their engines and fol
low him, which they did with tho ut
most meeknoss and alacrity. There
was no chance fur either party to claim
a victory, but they kept up a subdued
rattle of words all the way. From
''How We were Burned out in Constan
tinople," by Oscanyan, in St. Xicholals
Columbus, Ga., has a boy of Spartan
courage and nerve. The daughter of
a watchman at tho railroad depot had
both logs terribly lacerated in a turn
table, and the doctor said it would be
imposslblo to mako parts heal unless
fresh bits of skin were grafted on tho
girls ugly wounds. As soon as this
was known to her brother, a lad of 12
years old, ho stepped up to tho physi
cians and promised to be on hand any
tlmo tho next day and lot them cut out
tho necessary skjn from his arm. At
tho appointed hour he met the engage
ment, bared his arm, and by moans of
knife and scissors four pioces of skin
were taken from his arm and trans
planted to his sUter's wounds. The
skin is growing finely.

The St. Gothard Tunnel.
A difficulty that has for a long time
puzzled the engineers of theStGothard
railway seems on tho point of being re
moved. Everyone who has traveled by
the line has cause to remember the ex
perience in passing through the great
tunnel, the passage of which occupies
fully twenty minutes. The sulphurous
fumes from the engines render the con
fined atmosphere injurious to persons
with delicate lungs. Tho company re
quested their engineers to submit plans
for engines that would be capable of
passing through without using fire.
Two experimental engines just com
pleted are provided with steam and
water that is heatod by a stationary
boiler at each end of the tunnel. The
steam thus generated is passed by
means of a current of hot air, which is
set in motion by the working of the en
gine, over an alkaline liquid, confined
ill a special chamber, and by this
means is entirely absorbed after having
communicated its power to the ma
chinery, so that no vapor at all escapes
into the atmosphere of the tunnel.
A People Who Can Not Mako Fire.
Tho Papuans of the Maclay coast of
New Guinea are represented by the
Russian exploror, Dr. Miklucho Ma
clay, as being in a most primitive
stago. They are wholly unacquainted
with metals, and make their weapons
of stone, bones and wood. They do not
know how to start a fire, though fire is
in uso among them. When the traveler
askod them how they build a fire, they
could not understand his question, but
they regarded it as very amusing, and
added that when a person's fire went
out he got some of a nolghbor, and, if
all tho fires in a village wont out, they
would got it from the next village
Somo of tho natives represented that
their fathors and grandfathers had told
them that they remembered a time, or
had hoard from thoir ancestors that thoro
was a time, when fire was not known, and
overything was eaten raw. The nativos
of the southorn end of New Guinoa,
having no iron, shave thomselves now
with a piece ot broken glass. Former
ly they shaved with flint, which they
could sharpen quite well, and used
with considerable dexterity. Popular
Science Monthly for August..
It is said of an old physician in Phila
dolphin, when called upon to prescribe for
a cough or cold, that he invariably refuses
to do so, but recommends his patient to
take Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup.
Women in California.
A young lady friend of theso topics
writes back from California: "I want
to expose a fraud. You know tho
newspapers have been for years tolling
about the grout preponderance of mon
over women in this section; how many
rich bacholors there are, and how im
possible it is for a girl to stay any where
over twenty-four hours without an
offer of marriage. Indeed, one paper
said that every pretty girl held a con
tinual levee, in which suitors took
turns, the same as a barber shop.
Now, I have been hero six months, and
I want to denounce such statements as
false. There are more men here than
women, it is true; but if my judgment
goes tor anything, the most of thorn
have run away from marital bonds
elsewhere and come out here to have t
quiet peaceful time, away from the
pestiferous sex that has caused their
woes. A woman is of less consequence
here than anywbero in the world. The
Chinese do most of the washing and
housekeeping and work at about thf
same wages that girls and women
would find necessary. There ii
mighty little marrying and giving in
marriage here. The men don't seem
to be anxious about it and the glrlf
are so well up to snuff that they won't
encourage a man till they know all
about his former life and make sure hr
hasn't a surplus wife or twosome
where East Oh, no; this is no placs
for a girl who wants to marry, and
