Never look down on a man because he is down. That is something which every man and every woman should bear in uiind. In this free country of ours, where the nuexpected is always liable to happen and where the pos sibilities are great, there is no telling what change a few days may make in anyone. Suppose, for instance, a young man who seems to be barely clinging to the bottom ran;; of tho ladder of wiwess arrives in town and seks work. Give him a lift, and you will not only be acting humanely, but you may be pur KuiDir the b?sl policy. Suppose you slur the ur fortunate ui.ni because he. is down and rufoe to speak to h'na in public, and in the course of two or three years he becomes one of your most ioftnentiat and wealthy citizens. And suppose you should come up for. election to the office of eounty barber, dog-catcher or some such responsible office, and the enemy you purposely made uses his influence against you. There yoo are. A kind word aujl a helping hand when the young man sorely needed it wonld have made him your lifelong friend. Now there is Bill Howard, foe in stance. He came to- Jeroinx: last January, to relieve us of the job of delivering meat for Tovrea & Clay, lie had only one collar. As we call to mind the three days we went around with him, showing him the flesh, route, these few lines enter our head so ap propriate, too: Over the trail so slippery, Down to the 500 roast. We led the way 00 our charger While Billy came on like a ghost. His teeth were knocking toeether. Mercury was forty below; The wind blew through his whiskers. And his hair was f u 11 of snow. Handsome and dashing- was Billy. Long, cadaverous and gay ; He looked like a beef led to slaughter When we showed him the route that day. "Beefsteak, pork chops,' he hollowed. Those mornings when we rode round; And the hearts of the eirls, God We em, Went fUpatyftop a the sound. Now Billy is msnajer of the Jerome Telephone company, owns one collar and a pair of s,ocits and has one young lady and one.uian workiu uudsr hiui.. He wouldn't grind a pound of saasHge any more, and hardly rer)gniae3 'lo. Tiea witeu ue meets u nn. in one mora 1 year,, u taiiting keeps up and tt is sure to, since the telephone is connect ed with many private residences where women live this same Billy is liable to own the whole talking plant. We were good to him, in his struggling days and showed him how to hold out to the best advantage, fie is friendly towards us and will always be so-. Kow we shall cite another example to pcove.the Vath of our argument: Shepherd & Ifewees. Their names are as familiar -to the public as is that of the Ilustler. Tbey both came to Jerome on the swine, train, vulgarly speaking. They had thirty-four ceats between them. Now Will Den eta hps sold his half, othe store to Suep, ai d is touring the state of Texas 011 111 automobile. Shep. dresses in. good store clothes and buys shoe for his baby. lie is an influential citizen and. no one remembers the days of his pov erty. Of course ho delivered ice for the T. P. Miller company when the ice trade was brisk, but that is forgotten now. ne is only Mc. Shepherd, the proprietor of the Red Front fruit store, a man of honor and lae&c?,. a politician and a scrapper. ' Con O'Keefe you all know, A big,, good oatured Irishman with a Sne wife and two rosy-cheeked,smart little boys, superintendent of the Cobre Grande Copper company and owner of a line three story concrete building asul a, dry goods store. The first time lie pushed his face into the Hotel 1'urlte in Presectt, not over seven sears ago, be was refused credit for a fif t j cent, meal. lie iiuu uui a cent men, uo wne, no concrete store, no superintendency of anything except a burro, and pack saddle, which he had followed over the trail from Phoenix. To tell the whole truth, he was one of the men that put a burro and pack into a box car at Tucson and stole a ride up to Maricopa. When the brakeman opened the box ear door and saw the happy family, be laughed until he almost fell down in a fit. Cod and his partner Tver mend ing stoves and soldering dishpans then. Now look at him. His word' is as good as any man's bond and Jerome is proud of such a citizen. Those who refused him a meal afterwards cheer fully went on his note for $1000. and lost nothing by it. Dave Connor, one of our best men and proprietor of the costly brick hotel that, flys bis name from a, pen nant over its, portals, had. nothing when he came to Jerome. He now has all a man could desire. exeeDt a wife, and gossip, has it that he will sometime soon possess himself of that lusury. If any doubted Dae in the d:iys of his poverty tbey must feel the inferiority of their judgment now. Never purposely make an enemy of a man because he is poor. He may pay you back with interest in later years when fortune has been kind to l i u. Dr. Skunk purposely made euetn-.es with the Hustler when it was o larger than a .band bill, and just 1 tottering on very unsteady pins, but we believe he regretted it afterward-:. There are so many instances of thi kind we could cite if we had the space, but these few are sufficient. If you sed a brother struggling along, give him a lift, for some day he may have u ottey and influence and yeu may be the struggles, and would like a lift. BR? CEIAM Oil XTXPSffL a runt tt Irrigation in Peru. (.Siial Correspondatice.l Washington, Uv. 1,3, iieuor Ramon Estacia, who is a visitor to this country, from Pern, can talk very interestingly about his home under the Equator, the land of the Incas and associated with Pizarroand his Spanish Conquistadores. "I am in the United States," said Senor Estacia, ''to study the results of your plunging civilization and to note those American inventions which would help ns in my country. The discovery of America destroyed eru as it aid Mexico. The Peru of to-day isa small part of the ancient empire. At the time of the conquest the Spaniards fpund the land in a high State of cultivation. While naturally iu large part a desert, owing to very scant or no rainfall between the moun tains and the coast, the natives, by the superior wisdom and foresight of their. Incas had brought water immense distances and rendered, arable vast stretches of country. The ancient ir rigation of Peru was very, vvoouerlul, "Water was conducted by means of canals, and. subterranzjas aqueducts executed on a grand scale. They were built of large slabs of freestone nicely fi,tted together without cement. The suppiy came from some elevated lake or natural reseraoir in the heart of the mountains and was fed a. intervals by other basins which lay on the route along the fijojes of the Sierra. Pas- j stages were cut tiirongli rH.c (and-the Pemviiuis bad no iron tools) ; almost impasfeil-r njotintaias were turned; 1 rivers and mor8ies were crossed and apparently impossible feats of engi- j ne;i ins were accomplished simply to b&tura WAlcr for the iriAUan. of fields and gardens. Soma of these canals were very long. That of Con desuyu was between 400 and 500 miles iu length. "By latent ducts or sluices, the life giving fluid .was led to tha tillable lands along the line of the canals. In spme instances, the land was flooded, while in others the waters was made to run in furrows between the rows of growing maize, tobacco and other crops. Each occupant of land was allpwed a certain quantity of water by the law of the Empire. Overseers for the government had charge of each district ajwi saw tjiat every man re ceived his proper amount, and that the canals were kept iu repair. " That the government understood the danger of floods and took steps to prevent tbemis shown by. some of tho works slill extant. Notable is the. still visible tunnel near Casamasca unite ine waters 01 tms lake were used for irrigation, the heavy rains and melting snows of the mountains oould cause an overflow. To protect the i -rigation works and the settle' ment'j aiong ine route, a tunnel was excavated in the mountains to give an outlet, in another direction,, to the waters of the lake when they rose to a height to thereaten inundation. "At, the coming of the Spaniard the land eveij where, tonme-.l with evidence of agriemtnr ! wealth,"- said Senor Kitacia, lefletlvcij, "To-day the gr-r&'.er part, of Una pa.adise has re- v.'i-f.d t' it orifi-umi arid condition. iter aud there, where some old dirt filled and. long forgotten tunnel leaks a little moisture the rank vegetation of our tropics, in. contrast with the surrounding arid wastes,, shows the power of irrigation." This gives rise to the reflection that the Spaniards, wherever their star of chivalry or rapacity for wealth led them, have, destroyed, and, never created. Their coming has always been a curse to the. people they con quered. ChivaUlc and recklessly brave, they yet considered the civiliza tion and population of the New World as but barbaric and pagan and fit only for destruction. But these native tribes, people, gov ernments, benighted and heathen, had battled with Nature, learned the secret of success and conquered under the . most adverse circumstances. They, made use of mountain lakes and natural reservoirs, wherein 4 W m k . car fc3A Made from Grape Cream of TartarandAbsolutelyPura Highest award, Chicago World's Fair. Highest tests by U. S.

We have to-day in California, Co'- about 400 men working on the Ray orado, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah at d., mine and vicinity. the Northwestern states, millions of acres otiand, the productive cipa-.'ily of which is beyond compute, which can and will be reclaimed eventually. Great mountain gorges, forming nitu ral reservoirs, can be used for st orngn purposes, and the land, useleis to-d ty, will become an empire of agricultural weaith, worth far more fabulous sums than the rich mines adjicenl to them. In Favor of Storage Rasstvoirs Following is a copy of resolutions adopted unanimously by the executive council of the St. Louis Manufacturers' s'Kriatinn at a meeting held October 10th, lfsS-: Whereas, The question of storage reservoirs to be constructed by the Federal Government for the purpose of holding water in the moun tp.ics lias I boon thoroi'hly discussed and passed upon by eight annual sessions of the National Irrigation Congress as the proper metlioJ to supply - the arid, West with irrigation water; aud Whereas, The question of irrigation has been thoroughly discussed and passed upon as the oniy means of re claiming and putting into cultivation the arid lands of the West ; and Whereas, The great stok, interests of the. West depend upon irrigated lands for pasturage and farming pur poses; and Whereas, The storing of water in mountain reservoirs would greatly lessen it not prevent the overflow of lands on the lower - Missouri and lower. Mississippi rivers, as well as tributary streams; and Wcercas, The interests of the entire . arid West demand irrigation and the overflowed- lands, of the South and middle state demand protectioa ; there fore, be it Resolved, That the St. Louis Man-, ufacturers Association, in behalf of its patrons of . the arid West and the overflowed district, asks that those two interests combine their power, and pledges to support the combined powers of those interests in securing from, the Federal Government the necessary, appropriations , for storage, reservoirs for the purposes uaraeci ; and be it further ... Resolved, That tho St. Louis Manufac turers Association feels confident that the, Federal Government -has the same right and with equal justice can ap propriate money for storage purposes as it can appropriate money for the improvement of rivers and harbors, of lakes aad other internal , develop ment; and be it further Resolved.That the St. Louis Manufac turers Association . will do all in its power to . bring together these two interests to further the joint, and common interest oi ail concerned, the West, the.South and ttie Southwestern states. L. D. Kingslasd, President. Tom L. Cannon, Secretary. Mineral Creek and Its Future. , The head of Mineral Creek has never ' been prospected to any extent until re cently. Messrs. Cole & Goodwin have' 20 claims located in Lyons Canyon, the -headwaters of Mineral Creek, and are 1 at present; sinking a 50-foot shaft on sulphide ore of an average grade of.' about 13 per cent copper, which is nearly double the values in the Ray. properties.. The claims are, all- in a'' slate formation, incidental with 1 Jerome. The slate itself carries a good percentage of copper. There are enormous dykes of por- pli-yry, stained, on the surface from. leechings from the sulphide below, . running with the slate, son of them being mixed with slate, and itom 100 to 400 feet in widtU. The work which has been done proves that the slato on depth is high- ' ly impregnated with icon and copper sulphurets. The Nfivlmime tunnel, being drivea; at Idaho Springs, Clear Creek county, Colo., will be, when completed, nve 1 miles in length. It is expected to in tersect, in its. course 1140 veins, and' will reach th California vein at a depth of 2400 feet, the abaft of that mine being down ziw teet. ine tun- ' nel is 12x16 feet.
