Tucson. Ariz March 27. On April 1 the United States marshal's office, comprtfaK the marshal and his staff or depttttes. will be transferred from this city to Phoenix. Instructions to that effect have just been received by United States marshal C A. Overlook from the department of justice. Reduc tion in expense Is Pelieved to be the reason for the change. The department pays 1 1000 a. month for its office quar ters here. It will be quartered in the federal building at TTmhiiiit Other federal offio&n will be re quired to go to Phooaoc also. United States attorney Joseph K. Morrison, -w ho has always conducted his official business from bis home town in Bis fcee, has received instructions to move to Phoenix. His assistant, John B. For st, at Prescott, must also move to the capital city. The removal of the marshal's office to Phoenix will prohaMy result in the confinement of most of the short-term federal prisoners in the Maricopa coun tv jail. Heretofore most of the have i.en kept in the Pima county jail. It i; said the revenue from the govern ment in this connection has usually been about sufficient to keep up the expense of the jail, thus creating a (considerable source of revenue to the taxpayers of the county, who do not take kindly to the new orders of the department of justice.

White, owner of the Yel low House ranch, the most famous ranch of the plains. Mr. 'White has tested the practicabil ity of ensilage, and is such a firm be liever in it that he will have four more silos built on the Yellow house ranch property this spring. There are already two silos on the ranch. These are each 30 feet in di ameter and 30 feet high; each holding about 185 tons. The products put in them were mile matxe, kaffir corn and sorghum. Mr. White says that the 'stock was greedy for it. He says that It saves practically 100 percent - of the crop, while when the feed is cut and stacked in tne neid a large percent is lost. acres in melons at his Sunshine ranch.

Cole is preparing to develop an irri gation proposition on the Potrillo, on land recently purchased by him from Roman Valencia, and has had prelim inary surveys made and the ditch con struction is under way. This is a pumping proposition and the first to be inaugurated in that section, which is the dry farming district of the county. There is apparently an abundance of good water at shallow depth, and the quality of the soil is considered much better than along the irrigated por tions of the Pecos. Mr. Cole contem plates putting a large acreage under ditch next year, and will put out sev eral acres in orchard, which it is be lieved will thrive from sub irrigation after becoming well rooted.

FARMING 1 WEST COAST MAY BE GREAT BEE COUNTRY RaUInR of Alfalfa ax Experiment En courages Bee Culture, But Meth otlft are Yet Primitive. Guaymas, Hex., March 21. "With the raising of alfalfa in Mexico to a large extent is being born a new industry, that of bee culture. At the present time there are almost no bees along the west coast. In Vera Cruz some in dividuals nave as many as 100 hives, but they are cared for in the most crude fashion. Usually they are kept in old boxes (old petroleum cases be ing preferable.) Left to shift for themselves, the bees will swarm in hollow logs, from a beam under the roof of a veranda or fro in a branch of a tree close to the house. Two swarms per year from a mother colony is the general rule. From an old colony the first swarm may be expected in the month of March. Should a second swarm make its ap pearance it will come about the month of July or during me height of the flowering season. The removal of a swarm once settled is performed mucn 'the same as in other countries. The so-called hive intended for the recep tion of the swarm may be smeared with honey on the inside to attract the bees, or the colony may be left to its own resources in arranging its new habitation. Honey is taken from the hives twice a year, in March and in July, but this rule is not strictly adhered to. Cli matic conditions and the supply of flowering plants naturally have much to do with the production of honey. The comb is removed with long knives (machestes). Usually the bees are smoked out by burning corn cobs, or by the aid of a small furnace of clay or sheet iron, in which dry ma nure is burned. Separating the honey from the comb is an operation performed today in Mexico as it was 100 years ago. Most bee keepers compress the combs with their hands until no- more liquid may be extracted, and the mass is then again pressed through a coarse cloth made of pita fibre. Another method is to extract the honey by means of a small band press and fine sieve. Some of the honey is boiled before packing, but this is not done in all cases. The product put up for home consumption is packed in bottles, and for export it is packed in five gallon cans, two to a case, or in wooden barrels. Wild honey is gathered, but not in sufficient quantities for export or even for family use. It is believed in Mexico that wild honey possesses medicinal properties, particularly that from, a small stingless bee about the size of the common house fly. Sometimes this little bee is domesticated, and in such cases jrourds are used for hives. In the state of Sinaloa and in the territory of Tepic. bee culture has re ceived but little attention, but it is not uncommon to find honey in the mar kets of Mazatlan. Culiacan, Rosario, Acaponeta and Tepic. TOLTEC IS CENTER OF WELL ACTIVITY Casa Grande," Ariz., March 27. The Toltec Improvement company has fin ished a bored well 200 feet deep and 24 inches in diameter, and Installed a 60 horsepower Bessemer crude oil engine and Pennington pump. It is satisfiea that there is water sufficient to irrigate one section of land which will be seeded to alfalfa. Eventually the company will put in a creamery. This company now has a well stocked merchandise store, and has made ap plication for a postoffice. Many set tlers are now on tho filings in th:s vicinity with children enough to es tablish a school district. The company has received an 80 horsepower trac tion engine which will be used to cul tivate the several sections of land. Section lines have been cut out north and south for miles, lands are being cleared, fences built, wells bored and a general activity prevails. Tol -a is .t'gUi miles east of Casa Grande. Lane & 3oller. well drillers and pump men, of Los Angeles, have a rig six miles south of tbwn, boring a well tor Hiram H. smitn, a citrus fruit rancher, of Santa. Anna, Calif. The well is now down 235 feet and in dicates ample water for the 40 'horse power Bessemer, crude oil engine and Pennington pump now at the depot. J. Vance, of Long Beach, Calif., who recently bought 160 acres of land from Mrs. "Woods and a 240 acre relinguish ment, the former at $26 and the latter at 12.50 per acre, has gone to work to reclaim the land. There are at present six well rigs in the valley, all at work and the future of this valley seems assured. Many improvements are under way; the old Maldonado store buildings are being repaired by the new owner. C. C Nichols, who will put in a full line of general merchandise. A livery and feed stable has been built by Gordon Many transfers of land are being made. Many are seeking business oppor tunities here but tuildings are not to be had, and there is not a vacant house in town. ams In 30 Bays 50c Packago of Eemarka'ble Flesh.

Goodwin's fruit ranch about a mile west of Alpine. Mr. Goodwin has planted 16 acres of level land lying close to the foothills ot Twin Peaks, .with apple, peach and pear trees, scientifically set out, and care fullv Irrigated and nruned. Although the trees are but three years old, they are as large as most four year old trees. Mr. Goodwin has a fine well, from which he can pump 130 gallons' a minute for an indefinite length of time. This water he stores in a dirt tank 1300 feet away, and 12 feet higher than the well and the or chard, with a capacity of 450.000 gal lons. He anticipates putting in a more elaborate pumping outfit with an S inch pipe, whlih will give him 500 gallons a minute. Mr. Goodwin has a second valuable supply of water In the overflow from the watershd immediately above his land, which though of comparatively small area, gets frequent rains. By means of three dikes built across the drainage area he prevents the dam age which the flood water would cause to his irrigating ditches, and stores up a surplus to use in case of drought. On land adjacent to his orchard Mr. Good win i planting alfalfa, melons and onions. Mix one pint of granulated sugar with pint of warm water, and stir for 2 minutes. Put 2 ounces of Pinex (fifty cents' worth) in a pint bottle; then add the Sugar Syrup. Take a teaspoonful every one, two or three hours. You will find that this simple rem edy takes hold of a cough more quickly than anything else yoa ever used. Usu ally ends a deep seated cough inside of 24 hours. Splendid, too. for whoop ing cough, croup, chest pains, bronchi tis and other throat troubles. It stim ulates the appetite and is slightly lax- uuic, niucu .uups euu cougn.
