9 THE Arizona Gopper Gompany (LIMITED.) - Dealers In GeneraL Merchandise. Clifton, Arizona. Teachers' Institute Resolutions. The time having arrived that our de liberations are about to close and the Teachers' Institute of 1899 becomes a matter of history it ia proper and becom ing of us, as teachers, to show our ap preciation of the efforts put forth for our comfort nd entertainment during our stay in Clifton ; therefore, be it Resolved, by the teachers of (he Insti tute, that we extend our most sincere thanks ..to the people of Clifton, the Ari z na Copper Co., and all who have so teneruusly t-ntertained us and made our visit one of pleasure and profit. R -solved, that the thanks of the In Bti'ute are due our worthy superintend ent for his vigorous, earnest and untiring fflor s in behalf of the teachers who are attending. Resolved, that the system of conduct ing teachers' institutes in the Territory of Arizona, as provided for by law, is expensive ; th t it interferes with the suc cess of tiie S; hoolE ; that it does not ful fill the purpose for which it was in tended. Therefore, be it Keoived, that the teachers and pub lic schools would receive greater benefit from a normal institute held during the cummer vacation at some convenient and desirable location. Therefore, be it Resolved, that the county superintend ent be requested to use his best endeav ors to secure a normal institute for the teachers of Graham county, that the Teachers' Institute be h-.-ld in connection therewith, and that we, the teachers of this Institute, hereby pledge to him our best efforts and co-operation in any and all Of his efforts in this direction. Resolved, that the course of study pro vided by the mperintendent of public instruction is of great benefit and well calculated to assist the teachers in bring ing about a uniform system of craded schools in the territory, and that we will follow this course of studv as closely as practicable in our respective districts. Resolved, that national control of the public srhoo's of the United States would be of ijreat benefitto teachers and schools of all ; rades, and that we would be pleased to have our representative in confess bring the subject before the proper department of the national gov ernment that the matter may become a subject of general discussion and atten tion throughout the country. K. R. Ca-per, represen' ing the Mining and Scientific Press, of San Francisco, was a pleasant caller at our office last Frid y. Mr. Casper spent several days here and at Morenci, and quite an ex tensive write-up of this district may be looked for in the next issue of the Press. Onr cigars always give satisfaction. L. W.

Falcone & Nardelli wish us to again call the attention of the people to the fact that the First Chance is still in the lead and that if you want to drown your troubles just call on them and get one of their hot drinks. Jack Goodwin and family arrived from Roswell, New Mexico, last Friday, hav ing come overland via White Oaks, St. Johns and Blue. They were on the road about a month. Mr. Goodwin is a first class barber and may conclude to open up a shop in Clifton. We call attention to the ad. of Frank Weise, the Morenci jeweler, in this issue. Mr. Weise has been in the jewelry and watch-making business all his life. He is not so old as he might be ; but is old enough to know just what is wrong with your watch or clock and is skillful enough and has the tools to put them in first class shape. Call on him ; he is the handsomest man in Morenci.
