Harry Welch of the chamber of 50m-

son, of the Phoenix National bank told
of the growth of Phoenix. Five years
ago, they said, the city was rated at
23,000 population, today believed to
approximate 40W04. Two years ago
the local banka had (1 '.317.0M de
posits, now Increased several mil
lions, thongh there have been heavy
drafts for the handling of the cot
ton crop thst will stiffen muIli
reserves 4,000,060 more before the end
of the year.
Incidentally, Phoenix and its tribu
tary sections have invested $ 1.552,
150 in Liberty bonds. The county's
assessed valuation has gone in two
years from t79.90O.0O0 to S08.000.00u.
The valley acreage in cultivation
within five years has risen from 123,
000 to 300,000, with a corresponding
rise In the value of agricultural
products from S12.000.000 to 140.400.

candlewood, scientifically known
as fououTerla splendens, a plant of
columnar green stalks, with flaming'
ted flowering found on tens ef thou
sands of Arizona acres, generally
where foothills break upon the rocky
detntat deposits that lead down to
the plains. The plant has had no
practical use in the past, save
fencing- by Mexicans, the resultant
tfedge most beatiMful in the time of
flowering. It is of slow growth, the
average matured plant probably hav
ing a life of 40 years, till its growth
is such that it is blown orer by the
wind, for its roots are smalL Some
lant hare been found even 16 feet

The first utilization of the ocatillo
now is in progress at Salome, a sta
tion on the Arizona California rail
road, 90 miles northwest of Phoenix,
ic a district notable for the growth
of the desert shrub. For a year the
Ocatillo Products company has been
experimenting on processes for ex
tracting the gum of the plant. Though
a relative degree of success was
secured by the solvent method, by the
use of distillate or gasoline, this plan
has been rejected and distillation has
been adopted as most effective and
most economical.
However, odd It may appear, resort
has been takes to a distillation fur
nace originally designed for the
handling of lignite coala. Such a
graduate oven or retort now is
being completed at Salome by its In
ventor, a M. Darling, of the United
States bureau of mines, who has ex-
rerimtatsd enough to be sure of bis

half inch pieces, is subjected to a
heat of 1440 dsfcrcea, Fahrenheit and

where comedians score through arti

ludicrous trousers and "adventitious

Real comedians have been going
their laugh provoking way in Amer

paint pots and property man's stock
that Catlett is ha'led as an innovation.
And what a lot of good publicity

"new" comedian. British papers re

that keep the American before the

though the others may have been

Swift & Company is convinced that interference
with its legitimate business function by governmental
