At the meeting of the mining engi neers in San Francisco last week Pro fessor Comstock spoke of "The Geology of Arizona." He said that there is a very large gold field developing in that territory and that Arizona is destined to be a rich mining state. Gold of in creasing value is being found at the lower levels, down about 2,500 feet. Re cently very rich large nuggets ami grains have been found scattered through white quartz after passing through the water level, 300 or 400 feet below the surface. In the mine in which Dr. Comstock is interested tbe ore was worth $5 a ton near the sur fajo UuJ now at a depth c! st ' U rock. The whole geolo-jy of t'ie territory is just beginning ti ;- i veloped, and is extremely interesting ; to the scientist. All the copper end I lead in Arizona occur in faults in tha ; formations, Lul liicy never I-wi together. Professor Dumble opened the session with a paper on tbe natural coke of the new coal fields in the State of So nora, Mexico. He explained that these valuable dop mits are 2 WO feet abov e the Yaqui valey, and comprise some thirty-one beda of coal, varying from two to ten or more feet in thickness. They practically belong to the South ern Pacific company, whbsh has re cently takee hold of them, although men have known of their existence in a vague way for nearly thirty years. Professor Blake of Arizona expressed much interest in the facts concerning these coal beds, and declared that tbe presence of such great deposits of nat ural coke in a region where none be fore was obtained is of immense com mercial importance not only to tbe metallurgical development of that part of Sonora and to tbe railroad com panies, but to the miuing districts of Arizona and perhaps to the wh ole Pa cific coast, which is in need of cheaper fuel of this kind. "These, new coal fields'" he said "mean that many met allurgical developments will result. For thirty yeara they have been al lowed to lie idle because capital has been too timid to take hold. Now tbe Southern Pacific has seen their value and will profit, by their development." Dr. Dougkis remarked that the tia;st eoke isgeaerally found. at the eastern eiwl cj! tue& coal field .ad. th;.-purest anthracite &t the western end. In tUe new Baranea coal fields, however, he thought that sufficient developments had not yet been made to show the real exisHiV of the deposit. According to.the latest reports of the United States treasury, Arizona and Kew Mexico paid a fraction mpre thin $132,800 into-the coffers of tbe inter nal veveaue department of the govern ment for the last fiscal year. The ques tion arises what do we receive in return for this tax. Add to this tbe amount paid for enstoms duty,- land and mines and tbe total is very large indeed. Arizona is denied statehood. Is not this taxation without representation? Arizona asks to-, have-this tax money returned by appropriations for reclaim ing onr dissert land, thus enabling ns to create conditions which will provide homes for tbe home seeker and establish a most desirable- populatioa in the territory. Inasmuch as A.rizocaIs citi zenship is taxed without representa tion, the very least the government could do would be to return this tax to. aid in. the reclamation of tho government lands. The proposition is not only just and equitable, but a matter of right, which the revenue tax paying citizens have a right to demand. (Tucson Star. Tho-Glcbe Times says luat the Globe and I'hoeuLv railroad project irt any thing but a myth. The &ujcvey is go ingsteadily forward, and the route, ac cording to the latest plann,. will reach every mining district of importance between Globe ahd Phoenix, including Mineral Creek and the Eay luiuu. II this enterprise is ever carried out it insures a wonderful future for those camps, which from their remoteness were nnable to accomplish anything in tbe past. It is to the interest of both Gila and Maricopa county to pro mote this enterprise by all available means. QUESTION QF AMUSEMENT. la Most Cases tbe Man Desires Rest ral the Woman Prefers Excitement. One of the problems that develops out of that trying first year of married existence is the equal adjustment of tbe amusement question.. To the average an, worn out with the work and .worry of the day, tired of the babel of voices and coufsiei. in which he has tolled and weary ot trying to make himself agresjle to. those he must pl,se for business purposes, there seoa-6DovUrise on eariii so desirable as the quiet and peace of his own fire side. He doesn't want to talk or be talked to. He Cocfcc't want to have to force himself to, mVii er to th.ink, and' least of all does he wont to forsake his sit- -ers for his dress suit. li.o woman, on the other band, has. been shut up all day in the walls of ber house, going through the deadly dull roui.d of domestic duties without the. distraction of sefcig fresh face or hearing a new idea. She has toiled in her way just as hard as. her husband, and when night comes, she, too, feels the need of a change to rest and refresh herself, She is also worn out, in body and M and tired tired oft the servr ants' iueotnpvteuce and the children's, fretting am) raiding and perpetual de mands cud of turning and twisting and patching and mending and thinking while she is swallowing one meal what...

To. evi'n f;i:;-pv.t such .i thiiig to her )ii.sbai:d. however, is to bring on a growling diatribe on women's gadding, with the self-righteous assertion from her lord and master that "you don't see me forever wqntiDg to run around somewhere." HajLng delivered hia homiiy, the man stretches his feet out again to the tire and absorbs hiicself iii his paper and never once thinks he is not an entertaining companion foi; a woman who is pining for a little brightness and innocent amusement. From their own points of view tbe husband and wife are both right, and inasmuch as we can't change the condi tions of life it is a good deal better, to-. adapt ourselves to., them than to try tp adapt them to us. An old proverb sets forth the fact in natural history that you can take an ox to water, but you can't make him drink. In like manner you can take your husband to a part-, but you can't make him enjoy himself, as every woman kucv.s who lias ever tried it. Ho the part cf good sense and good feeling-seems to be to let him alone. Let him be happy in his own way and devise your owd scheme for relaxation and eitj-ij tnejjt... There i no woman, unless she is a miserable manager, who etMt't get out of her own bouse for a few hours everv day.' In that time rhe may meet biigi.t j..- Je, go to club meetings, yee tha tc .: y at the matinees,, and if she .tijxsvof home cooking treat herself to urusuai dishes at the restaurants. In f!ese days, of women's independence there is.-Bft reasan iky she-eaould aot find for her self plenty of rational enjoyment that vvonld in no wry interfere with brr fiouie duties or iu'tre'ts.

Kelt with the TeUpbons) Girl. A telephone girl at a popular Broad way hcitel says that five men out of every six forget something when they come out cf the telephone booth after sending ,i message. No matter how attentat.- a man may be at other times bis wits cm to go wool gathering after be has used a public telephone. The next person that follows him into the booth is pretty sure to find a forgotten umbrella or a pair of gloves. But ciga rette smokers are the most forgetful. When a man ia talking through the 'phone he puts his lighted cigarette on tbe desk, fuily intending to take it up when he goes out. He seldom does it. The porter comes along during the day and gathers the half-consumed stumps into a box. Nobody knows but himself what he does with his perquisites in the way of tobacco. N. Y. Herald. DACTniinP'.

After many trials I succeeded in teaching him tbe letters. but to save my life I could not teach him how to pronounce tbe word. In despair I said : 'Now, Johnny, what is it a cow has four of-while I only have two?'. The answer, was prompt; pro nunciation perfect, but it was unex pected, and I wished the 'floor would open and swallow me up to hide tbe shame on my face as the scholars tit tered at my embarrassment and John ny's unexpected reply.

Hard 'to Get Acquainted With. A young couple called at a fashion ible boarding house -in the West end a couple of weeks ao to 'engage board. They were from Chicago, and the hus band had recently Eecured nr. appoint ment in one of the departments. The landlady, an amiable acd pretty, if a trifle faded, little woman, showed the couple the vacant rooms, and one of them was finally accepted. "Now, you'll - want references, of course," saM the young wife, after the terms L-.. ! been fixed. Then she men tioned Lii'o uamc of a Washington man of Bonie j rominenee. - "You know him, or of him, I pre sume," si;c inquired. "He is my hus band's l.inle." "Well," replied the landlady.
