It is true that coy otes are nightly heard weirdly wailing in the streets of her met ropolis: the jackrabbit and ante lope graze undisturbed on her lull and vale and plain; cacti and vuca and tickle grass flourish in her abandoned field; but the howl of the coyote is still answeied by the watchdog’s deep-mouthed bark; the neighing horse and the lowing cow graze with the antelope, and broom corn and Kaffer corn hold their own against the thorny cac tus, and the peach and plum and apple shade the stately soap weed. If there are abandoned towns, holes that were once the primit ive habitations ot men; mounds that mark where the settlers sod shanty stood, and grass-grown furrows that mutely tell where he vainly toiled, there are commodi ous homes, generous barns, well tilled fields and bountiful bearing orchards that attest the jiresent prosperity of the men who are here. The day of the pioneer is past and the immigrant will fill the path to profitable agricultural blazed from start to finish.—Hugo ton Hermes.
