Arizona And
ARIZONA doesn't want any public land fraud scandals when she becomes a
state, ana for that reason the convention is deadlocked on just how to go
about it.
Save your timber, Miss Arizona, ana protect the watersheds, but open up
every foot of lana you possibly can for the farmer. No man makes more for the
betterment, growth and prosperity of a community than the man who tills the
soil, if he understands his business, ana a man generally unaerstands his business
when he conies out here to take up a homesteaa, for there are so many live ones
that a "back number" wouia soon be swamped beneath the great' advancing wave
of progress in the sea of southwestern activity.
Arizona has an example in her Salt river valley of what farming will ao for
a community. Farming maae Phoenix the live city that she is toaay ana it will
ao just as much for other cities ana communities. Mines make cities ana rich
cities; cattle ana sheep business have also maae cities, but the city that is maae
by the influence of the farmer is the enduring city, ana, no matter who maae it,
when the farmers come, they immeaiately form the great class that guarantees
the stability of any community.

Jnclwalts Denatured Poem
THE last fly of summer, winch ought to be dead, is fussing and fooling around
on my head. Somehow he escaped from the doom that befell the hosts of
his kindred; he's chipper and well; he drills and he bores at my scalp with a
vim, and heeds not the language I'm throwing at him. Through all the long ages,
since Adam was born, the fly has been with us. an object of scorn; serene and
unchanging, he's buzzed through the years, and left
a long trail of bad language and tears. He tortured
THE LAST FLY the Pharaohs with ticklesome toes, and lit for a mo
ment on Abraham's nose. The great men of legend,
the heroes of fame, all cussed the poor flv and his
innocent 'game, they swatted and trapped
of the fly that is with me today. Men change m their customs, appearance and
ways; a monarchy thrives for a while and decays; the things of this -world are
all given to change, today's things, familiar, tomorrow are strange; but flies
never change as the ages roll on: they're just the same now as they were at the
dawn; they tickle and torture with pestilent toes, they plow up your scalp and
thev fool with vour nose. The last fly of summer no sympathy gains; I chase
i and o'erwhelm him, and knock out his brains.

An Inheritance From The
(By Joe Elliott.)
LEVY, the usurer, was implacable,
and Gerald Archer put down the
letter with a sigh. There was an
otherletter besides, but that was very
unsatisfactory, too, and Gerald's face
looked rather worried as he turned it
towards his young wife, who just
came in.
"Aiiy news today, Gerald."
"Nothing but a letter from Levy, who
is very unreasonable. He gives me un
til next Wednesday, but I am afraid 1
can no more pay him the $2500 on Wed
nesday than I can today," Gerald repli
ed sadly.
"But can't you get the $1000 for the
picture Johnson is to sell for you?"
"No, he just writes me today that
the customer won't pftiy more than f 750.
It really looks as if one can get money
only from the usurers," said Gerald,
handing the other letter to his wife.
"Well, don't lose courage, anyway, It
will all come out right."
At this moment the patter of little
feet was heard outside, the door was
thrown open and two fairhaired chil
dren came rushing towards their fath
er. Gerald picked them up, placed one
on each knee and the next moment all
his melancholy thoughts had flown.
When the door of the studio had clos
ed behind them and Gerald faced his
work again, the worries came back and
prevented him from working. He
stopped at the big window overlooking
the garden and the Long Island hills
in the distance. Five years ago Gerald
had built the little homestead, which
had grown so dear to his heart, and
now it looked as If he must lose it. The
five years he had spent at Freeport
had been the happiest in his life, until
he had been tempted to try a flier in
stocks. The venture failed and he ne
gotiated a loan from Levy to cover his
margins, only to lose the whole amount
The more Gerald thought over the
situation, the more Impossible it seem
ed to find a way out. and throwing
aside his brushes he put on his hat and
went for a long walk along the shore
road. Three hours walk brought him
to the narow strip of sand stretching
towards Long Beach where he and tho
seagulls were the only llvii beings.
The beach was covered with all
kinds of flotsam thrown ashore by the
tide and left stranded by the receding
waves. Among all this Gerald's eyes
suddenly struck something that look
ed like ,an old bag half buried in the
sand. Mechanically he began to dig It
out and saw that it really was a heavy
oilcloth bag, tied tightly with stout
whipcord. He ripped it open with his
pocketknife and found Inside a belt
with a heavy brass buckle and with
a number of pockets. He opened one
of these and would hardly believe his
own eyes when he found it filled with
$5 gold pieces He quickly wrapped it
up in the oilcloth and started home
wards. It made a heavy bundle, but
he reached home without attracting
the attention of anybody. Walking
through the garden, he looked through
the big window and saw his wife sit
ting in the studio staring sadly into
the fire.
He went inside, hid his bundle in the
hall closet and opened the door of the
studio. His wife jumped up, the wor
ried expression disappearing from her
face, and she said cheerfully:
"I am so glad you came back, Gerald,
have you been looking for motives?"
"Yes. dear, and I hope I have found
something good," Gerald replied,
throwing himself into an easy chair
"I just want a cup of tea." he added, as
he filled his pipe, "then I will go down
to the bank and ask old Winters to
come and take dinner with us. I like
his company and maybe he can give
me some advice."
"Yes, I just thought of that myself,
but it is not very pleasant, is it, to
ialk of matters of this kind to stranj
"Well, we will have to make the best
of it," said Gerald, and laughed.
When Gerald, after tea, went to in

On The Tyranny of
Some Women
i of this hysterical type the more domi-
neering she will become.
No woman has a right to control
every hour of a man's time or to de
cide upon the nature of every inno
cent recreation he wishes to take.
No husband has a right to tyrannize
over a wqman in these respects. Mar
riage does not invest either party with
a slave driver's authority.
There must be freedom in legitimate
and moral recreations: there must be
liberty in the use of leisure time, or
happiness will be smothered and love
die for want of fresh air.
No man on earth wants to be loved
in that way.
Selfishness Not Love.
The woman who can never find it in
her heart to leave a man alone occa
sionally to enjoy himself in his own
way and clings to him like a burr, soon
ceases to attract him, and begins to ir
ritate him? however charming she majr
Love is stifled in such an atmosphere.
It is selfishness, and a petty desire to
rule which actuates a wife or a hus
band who attempts to control the oth
er's time. No wife who really loved
would wish to deprive her husband of
an innocent amusement or recreation
in which she did not share.
No man of strong character would
permit her to do so. Copyright, 1910,

The dinner was a great success, al
though the two men had locked them
selves in the studio until the soup was
nearly cold.
"We will take tho enffep. anrl rlcrara

old oilcloth bag. and, in a cup, a lot of
diamonds, cut and uncut. There was
also a broken chianti bottle and a pa
per covered with writing taken from
the bottle. This evidently contained
the key of the mystery and, Beatrice
picked it up with trembling fingers,
while the two men looked at her.
"Read it aloud, dear," said Gerald,
and she began to read.

Beatrice laid down the paper and
stared at it. There was something very
solemn in the picture it unrolled to
her mental eye, but there was no doubt
that Gerald was entitled to keep this
strange inheritance from the sea.

A Stupenaous Task Uhaertaken by Christian Workers. .
ECENT data comniled bv the
publishing trade shows that
there are more copies of the
bible being sold and distributed this
year than any of the hundred "best
sellers." This is due largely to the
activities of the world's bible soci
eties. Their methods of utilizing
every possible avenue of bible distri
bution has been so marked that the
marquis of North Hampton predicted
last summer at an international bible
conference that the aeroplane would
scon be used in the distribution of
the good book. The American Bible
society first used the automobile for
"bible distribution. (The successful
work of colporteur Fow and his wife
in distributing bibles through rural
California from an automobile, dem
onstrated the adaptability of this ma
chine for the purpose. The motorcy
cle is used extensively both in Amer
ica and- England for the same purpose.
A WoridWIde Campaign
Tne Bible societies of the world
are united in their efforts to place
a copy of the Bible in the native
tongue within the reach of every man.
woman and child upon earth, and phi
lar.threpists and churches are joining
hands in this great movement. At ev
ery summer resort, pleasure park or
town in the Christian world a colpor
tuer is likely to be found who in many
cases displays remarkable versatility in
attracting attention to his wares. In
heathen countries the work of the Bi
ble distributor is being pushed wfth
even greater vigor, although varying
methods are employed.
Every Christian country has its own
national organization for Bible produc
tion and distribution, but the great
bulk of the work is carried on by the
American and British Foreign Bible so
cieties. These two great English
speaking organizations control large
publishing plants in many places and
print Bibles in every language of Eu
rope, in addition to the various other
tongues Into which the Bible has been,
or is being, translated.
During the past two years special at
tention has been called to the enor
mouse increase in the contributions to
the America Bible society through the
beneficence of Mrs. Russell Sage, who
gave half a million dollars on condi
tion that the society raise an equal
sum for a perpetual endowment fund.
The committee in charge of the endow
ment fund campaign completed their
task last June, having secured contri
butions amounting to an average of
$1000 a day throughout the campaign,
which lasted for over a year. Most of
this amount was from small contrlbu- j
tors in America and foreign lands by
the society's work.
Has 95,000,000 Working Fund.
A conservative estimate places the
resources, of the American society at
$5,000,000," Including all endowments
and trusts and the publishing plants in
America and foreign countries. The
endowments and trusts are invested to
yield the largest possible returns. Be
sides the regular income from these,
the work of the society is supported by
the donations, which are
liberally each year and which are im
mediately utilized. The plans for the
work of the coming year call for $1.
000,000. To secure this sum the com-
mittoe will endeavor to keep the dailyJ
contributions up to the mark reached
during the endowment campaign. This
great annual expenditure will be re
quired to carry out the present plans
for Bible publication, including trans-

American. In addition to its heavy en
dowments, the organization is well sup
ported by the established 'church, while
very liberal private donations are be
ing received each year. Much of the
work of the British Bible society is
done in India, where the numerous dia
lects spoken require a large number of
translations in order that every British
subject in that land may possess a
copy of the scriptures in his nativo
Trnnnlatlnc the Scrioturejc.
The work of translating the scrip- j
tures is recognized as important to the
ri JL .n o aT,?T.ii,oi ctnnflnniTit !
Putting a Bible into a language pos-
sessing neither a lexicon nor a gram
mar Is a distinct literary achievement,
because it at once gives that language
the foundation of a national literature.
In most cases the translation of the
Bible into an illiterate language speed
ily results in the opening of a public
school. Many of the countries visited
by missionaries have no written Ian
guage Their vocal communication
seems to consist oi Deast-iiKe grunts.
Reducing these sounds to words and
reproducing them In printed form im
mediately gives a higher tone of com
munication which cannot but advance j
the intelligence of the people receiv- j
lng it. A keen ear and a thorough ac
quaintance with the people are .prune
essentials for translating the scripturos j
Into unwritten languages. The patient ;
perseverance required to reduce a ilia-
lect to printed page could only belong
to one whose ingenuity is inspired bj
zealous devotion. For this reason the
work of translating the Bible into
heathen languages is chiefly performed
by missionaries, who. In additian to
their other labors, generally undertake
voluntarily this arduous task. Their
work is carefully revised by experts
employed for that purpose at the main
publishing houses. The credit .for the'
real work of the translation, howtr,
must be almost without exception
awarded to missionaries. Usually the
New Testament, Psalms or aora "ther
portion is published first, and later the
whole Bible. Formerly most of the
printing was done in New York or Lon
don. Now great modern publishing
plants are sustained "xelusively for
Bible productions in Calcutta, Constan
tinople, Tokio, Shanghai and Vienna,
with many smaller prlntiu houses in
places of sufficient co'mmrrelal (ievel

The wonderful proves? of modern
mechanism is nowheje more apparent
than In the Bible publishing industry.
A demonstration of this Avas the i-ub-lication
of the Caxton Memorial Bible
as a part of the memorial exercises
held in England a few years ago In
honor of Caxton. the first English
printer. This special edition was print
ed at the University press, Cambridge,
and bound in London, a distance of 63
miles. The finished volumes of the
edition were in the hands of the recip
ients within IS hours after the first
portion of the copy was given to the
printer. This remarkable feat of pub
lication was deemed a fitting memorial
to the man who so painstakingly set
type for the first Bible published in
A specim&n of the Caxton memorial
edition now rests in the British mu
seum beside a copy of that first Eng
lish Bible published in 1450. Both
were printed from metal type set by
hand, as were all the earlier Bibles.
But here the resemblance in the pro
cess of publication ceases. The pro
cess of plate making has now almost
entirely superceded the old-fashioned
type in Bible publication. This reduc
tion of labor has reduced the cost of
production to a minimum and Bibles
are correspondingly low priced. Last
year the American Bible society was
able to reduce the price of a cloth
bound testament from six to five cents
a copy and to sell a complete- Bible for
17 cents. The British society furnish
a testament for "tuppence" and a Bible
for sixpence.
Illustrated Bibles.
While the majority of the Bibles of
tho world are produced by the Ameri
can and British societies, there are nu
merous other publishers both in Amer
ica and Europe engaged exclusively in
Bible productions.. These furnish fine
books for the subscription trade for
gifts and special usage. The Bible so
cieties Issue only the scriptures. All
teacher's Bibles and other issues in
which maps, history and material use
ful to the student are combined with
the Bible, are issued by private pub
lishers. Some of these have built up
enormous trades, especially in illus-
trated Bibles, which might be said to
form a class by themselves. During the
past year in America Bibles have been
printed in 71 languages. In some of
these only a single volume has been is
sued, but the plates are ready to supply
any reasonable demand on short no
tice. The British and American socie
ties each publish Bibles in quite a
number of languages which the other
does not duplicate. Thus the expense
of translation and revision in any
language is made as broadly useful as
During the past year the American
Bible society issued 2.826,831 volumes
and the British society 6,620,024, while
Germany, Russia and France and the
other European countries combined re
port the Issuage of 3,381,000. In addi
tion to these are the Bibles issued by
private publishers In the various coun
tries, which are said to amount to over
3,000,000. This places the total num
ber of Bibles issued, during the year
1910 at nearly 15,000.000 volumes, or
one copy for every 100 persons on the

penditure for labor and materials is

determining the number of persons in
the world engaged in the industry of
Bible production, there is no reason to
question the following statement
made by an agent of the American Bi

a balky horse caused A. B. Stroop, a

Stroop was driving horses when the
horse he was riding bailed. He struck
the horse on the shoulder a. blow from
his quirt, the leather reaching around
the lower part of the horse's neck and
a piece of leather off the end of the
quirt flying off and striking Stroop in
the eye. A hole as large as a pea was
made in the eyeball.

Later he adds: "All was still; no

But afterward light comes, "a faint

and there is a joyful reunion.

Asks "How Much Can a
Young Couple Live On?"
Income that he requires for his person
al living, he is very foolish to marry
What is not too much for one is not
enough for two.
A great deal depends on the economi
cal qualities of the wife. If she is pru
dent and saving, marriage on a small
income will not be a risk.
But the man who attempts to get
along with k small income and an ex
travagant wife will soon be staggering
under a load of debt that will eventu
ally overpower him.
Tkree Important Taints.
A young man whojs making a salary
of $23 a week tells me that e saves ?5
p- week.
He and his wife live very comforta
bly on $1S, but he says that he would
not advise a man to marry who made
less than $15 a week and that on that
sum the. strictest economy would hava
to bo observed.
The man who hopes to. get on can
never do so as long as he spends every
cent he earns.
The items of rent. fuel, food and
light mount up very quickly, and added
to that are dress and Incidentals.
When one is desperately in love It is
hard to come down to earth and jar
love's young dream with the sordid,
prosaic details of dollars and cents.
But love's 5 oung dream would have a
rude awakening if the dollars and
cents failed.
Before you marry be sure of three
thinsrs your love for th cirl Viat- abil
ities as a housekeeper, and your own
ability to support a wife.
