The Oldest Settlement in the County of (iraham-An Inter esting Letter on ltd (Settle ment, Kesonrrea, Etc. Safford is one of the oldest set tlements in the county, and de rived its name from Governor Safford. It is in Graham county, and is located on the Gladsen Treaty Purchase, one mile south of the Gila river. It is sitnated only a few miles from the inter section of the 33d parallel of lati tude with 33d degree of longitude; and was the county seat until the spring of 1883.- The county seat was then removed to Solomonville, five miles distant. The nearest railroad station is Bowie, which is forty miles sonth. - A daily stage passes through Safford from Bowie, also Ft Thomas. The altitute is 3,600 feet above the sea level. The two extremes of the thermometer are 112 deg. in the shade and 88 or 108 above zero. The average rain fall is 12 inches and the snow fall in the valley is very slight Twelve miles north is the Gila mountain range running nearly parallel to the river. Mt. Gra ham, which is the third highest peak in the territory, lies about seven miles went Its height is 10,576 feet. Safford is in the Pue blo Viejo valley, which is thirty live miles long, and from sir to ten miles in width. The valley is level, being covered mostly with mesquite, and can boast of a nat ural curiosity in the form of the Hot Springs, twelve miles below Safford. The nearest Indian reservation is San Carlos, fifty-seven miles west. The tribes on the reserva tion are the Yumas, Tontos and Mojaves.. There are some off the reservation, and the number on is uncertain as there have been so many removals in the last year. The last raid was about two years ago. In minerals the surrounding mountains are rich, containing, gold, silver, copper and iron. Agriculture-and stockraising are the principal occupations of the people. Flour and lumber are the only articles manufactured. All crops are raised by irriga tion. The soil is generally fertile and often after harvesting the small grain corn is planted, the same ground yielding two crops in one year. Fruits, such as apples, peaches, figs, plums, pears, quinces, grapes, apricots, and such berries as black berries, strawberries, and rasp berries are successfully raised. Safford was first settled by J. C. Glosby in 1874, who is also the oldest inhabitant. He was born in Saratoga, New York, and is sixty years of age. He is en gaged in the mercantile business. There are in Safford two stores, a schoolhouse, gristmill, postoffice and blacksmith shop. The dwell ing houses number about thirty three, and are constructed chiefly of adobe. The most common varieties of trees are oak, pino, Cottonwood, willow, mesquite, walnut, ash, cedar and hackberry. There are several varieties of cactus, including tree, night blooming, yucca or Spanish bayo net and prickly pear. The domestic animals are horses, sheep cattle, goats, bogs, mules and burros, and among the wild animals are bear, mountain lion, coyote, wild-cat, fox, beaver and raccoon. Wild birds are numer ous, of which may be mentioned, linnet, two kinds of red birds, bluejay, meadow-lark, quail, wood pecker, pigeon, dove, owl, hawk and crow.

CHAMPAGNE, BEER, Sticker, trout and Gila salmon abound in the river. The reptiles, horned-toad, rattlesnakes, bull snake and Gila monster. The earthquake which visited Arizona in the Spring of 1883 was quite severe at this place, and since then have been felt several slight shocks. Emma Gboesbeck, Alice E. Hunter, Age 16. Teacher. . Safford, Graham Co. Don't be Editors. The following extract is from Col. P. Doran's address before the Arkansas Press essociation: "Boys of my audience, bright faced, aspiring youths, longing for the shortest and the quickest way to fortune, hear a solemn ad juration, and be warned in time. Never be editors everybody's packing blocks, creation scrape goats and sway-backed pack mules. Deadhead tickets to circuseSj dog shows and festivals (paid at the rate of a twenty-five dollar notice for a twenty-five cent ticket) all very well in their way; and daily boquets from the girls who want to see their names in the papers with the 'beautiful and accom plished' formula swung to them, are 'just too charming for any thing.' But do not lead them into the den of inky horror, tread-mill labor and squandered opportuni ties, burlesquely known as the editorial sanctum. Stand back. Keep out. Be boot-blacks, chim ney sweeps, penitentiary or mem bers of maniac menagerie that meets in the white eepulchro of a capitol at Washington. Be mud clerks on a coal barge, deck hands in a tripe factory, brakemen on a canal boat, engineers on a one-donkey-power canal boat, dairy men with an aged oxen and two goats as your stock in trade, a ser vant girl in a poor-house or orphan asylum. Be stock gamb lers, railroad directors, presidents of sausage stuffing machines, rag venders, charcoal brawlers, cham bermaids in a livery stable, or policy spouting senators but nev er, no never, be editors, for half a one is three-quarters too mnch for any well regulated family to have about the house." An old philosopher sat in his library. A beautiful maiden en tered the room. "Great man," she said, "I have come to ask your advice. Two men have made me an offer of marriage." "Ah, and you do not know which one to accept," the philosopher re plied. "You understand the situation. One of the men is handsome, rich and a literary genius." "And the other one?' "He is ugly, poor and regarded as a fool." "My child," said the philoso pher, "marry the fool, for, should you marry the genius, you would occupy the place of fool." Ar kansaw Traveler. "Can you give me a little break fast, ma'rm?" pleaded the tramp; "I'm hungry and cold ; I slept out doors last night and the rain came down in sheets." "You should have got in between the sheets," said the lady kindly, as she mo tioned him to the gate. N. Y. Sun. Bobby I guess you must be a lady-killer, Mr. Sissy.

"What were the last words of Brigham Young?" asked the teacher. "He never had any," replied the smart bad boy; "he was a married man." Burdette. ' the Southwest.CSI Falks', Schlitz.' and Anheusen THE BET WAS OFF. Owing to Mischievous Boy and a Dictionary. There are lots of people who come to a newspapor to ask queer questions to settle beta If the office-boy at the entrance door finds out what the question is, he will try to answer it himseif.LSst night a man in a jolly mood, and wearing a tall white hat, came into the Sun office and fired off this: "My friend here and I have bad a dispute about a word. He' says it has an 'e' at the end of the first syllable, and I say it hasn't We want you to settle it, for we've got a bet on it" "What is the word?" asked the boy who sat on guard during a; nap that the office cat was taking .- "Judgment." The mischievous boy leaned back and began : "G-u-d-g " With a look of mixed surprise and scorn the man grasped his companion's arm and held on to the door-post with his other hand for support Then he begged the boy to get a dictionary. When, it was brought the man looked all through the "G" pages. And then he found it on a "J" leaf and discovered that either "judge ment" .or "judge-ment" is correct "This bet is off by a 'g-a-g' jugful," he said, and they went away. N. Y. Sun. The title of the Canadian offic- ial who bluntly mformad Captain Allen of the American vessel Bridgewater that he would get nothing by laying his case before the State Department at Wash ington was Minister of Customs and not Deputy Minister of Jus tice, as previously stated in tho Tribune. The official probably' did not intend to make an offenj sive remark, but merely aimed to express" ;a judicial view of the hopelessness of any attempt on the part of an American citizen, whose rights had not been recog-1 nized in Canada, to prevail upon his own government to interest itself in his case. " Yon will get nothing there" summed up in a cynical way the official's own con tempt for the measure of -protection an American citizen receives from the State Department at Washington. N. Y. Tribune. Frank Eooney,- the diver who" recovered the body of young George Brown, who was drowned Saturday afternoon, was in the water from 4:30 in the morning until 11 o'clock before he found the lifeless body. He is one of the best divers in the United States, rarely, if ever, donning the diver's suit, and is capable of stay ing in the water all day without receiving any ill effects. He has always lived in the city and works for the Hartford Transportation company in the capacity of diver, and has saved nearly fifty lives and recovered about thirty bodies. Among the persons whose lives he has saved are: Edward Moseley, James Miller, G. W. Williams, John Boach and four deaf and dumb boys. For rescuing all these persons he has not received in the total as much as $100.- Hartford Post . "Willie," said his mother, with' stern reproof in her tone, "I shall certainly have to punish you this time. - You promised me faithfully you would never play again with that bad boy, Sammy Shackelford, and here you've been playing ball with him for bore than an, hour."
