I'HE FLORENCE TRIBUNE
BY FLORENCE PUBLISHING CO. FLORENCE. ARIZONA. FEBKUAKY 24, 1900. TERMS; nYear fS.00 Six Month! , UM -8lngle Copies Mie Cents Entered at the Florence postofliee as second class matreis "It Is apparent that something must be 'done to provide water for the Indians. 'In "order to demonstrate our ability to govern new peoples we must show a better record for those now fn tur care." Prof. F. H Newell, In lecture in Washington, Dec. 57, 1899. The second anniversary of the do 'trr.ctkn of Ihe battles-hip Maine was observed fittingly February 15th, in " Havana, by the Americana there. ' Every visible portion of the wreck was covered with flowers. It is a good thing to know that Americans do not forjjet. It will soon be us easy to go to Ihe "Grand Cauyou as to the seashore, and Arizona folks should see the great 'gorge before doing other s'ghts. The Grand Canyon Railroad is expected to be fully finished by the middle of April, nd the company intends building a commodious hotel about half-way down from the brink of the canyon, to te Completed soon after. Hard and Beans isn't a bad motto", 1 tho' it does seem a little funny; but he California legislators were in tttrnest when they wore Ventura beans as a badge upon their cost lapels, and the most striking of welcomes was made for Mr. Bard out of 60 varieties "of beans which were arranged into letters "Welcome cr Senator." The Veotivrtsura also write odes of wel come with Bard and Beans mixed all through the rhythm. Well, beans are good cooked any fashion and the Cali fornians have onudenee in the good ness also of their Bard. The tillage Improvement Societies throughout tn'e East are increasing in number and it is said ia efficiency. This might be accounted for by the fact that many of them are run by the women. Some have boards of both men and women, while mauy have complete boards of women alone. They have cone fine work 5a many 'places, insisting upon good roads, safe viand clean sidewalks, the abatement of nnisance', pretty and appropriate play grounds for the children, and other r good things. When aroused to the . necessity of certain good that should be done the women are the ones who carry it through, not easily discouraged -and full of enthusiasm. If the good women of our own little town will take bold of this idea, there is no reason why Florence should not be come a model village, at least in looks. And all things clean end beautiful in ' surroundings add to the upbuilding of "the pure and beautiful ia character. A dispatch from Tucson to the Los Angeles Times says: "The. Unitrd States Court of Private Land Claims has. adjourned, after the last session that will be held in Arizona. The Arizona docket has been cleared away and the court's work in this Territory is done, save, perhips,"for a few minor motions that may be heard at Santa Fe. When the coart was organized, it ' svas considered ia Arizona an insiru anent whereby corporations might steal away the birthrights of the peo ple. Opposition to the bill establish ing the court seated Mark Smith in tfhe chair of Delegate to Congress. "But time has told that the court has been the most salutary power for good ver known in the Southwest. Of the claims filed, only 1 per cent, have been allowed." One of the claims coming before this court was the Peralta grant in which so many citizens of Pinal county were vitally interested. This grant claimed the enormous num ber of 10,467,450. acres and was rejected u toto. The San Pedro grant, claim ing 37,000 acres, was also rejected. Out of a long list of claims but six grants were confirmed entirely and "but few more in part. I The principal topic discussed in the j phoenix papers nowadays is water: J Water works and water bonds. They f are agitating the question of municipal 'ownership, a question in no ways I disturbing the Gila" valley folks, but ; like our Salt Eiver neighbors we are t intensely interested in the water topic ! too. We must agitata and educate ; until our needs are fully understood in 'this matter. The extracts from Mr. Lippincott's Eeport given in the Tui ausit make migh'y good reading, and all should read them. The importance of this water question is sufficient : excuse for any quantity of irrigation. literature, and the topic should be ; studied from every stand point, and as seen by others ia different sections f ' (;ur country. In line with this W. .1. Foster, the uoted weather projjnostica- ! tor of St. Joseph Mo., has this to say in regard to the reclamation of cur great areas of arid lands : "Irrigation will slowly reclaim the great prairies of the arid lands that lie in the sunset shadow of the Rockies, and those irrigated lands will produce a great variety. They are so iratn-ense-ly rich that they cannot long lie under the ;stunted buffalo grass. The gen eral government and the states will surely lend a more helping hand to irrigate that vast arid plain of 200,000 square miles. It will pay to thorough ly irrigate that section, for it wonld then furnish comfortable homes and profitable lands for twenty millions of people. The signs of the times point to vast changes in the industries of the great trans-Mississippi empire of agri culture. We will soon see the range cattle disappear, more corn produced in Texas and Arkansas, less corn and wheat anl more grass in the western part of the corn belt, resulting in bet ter profits to those vt ho produce cot ton, corn, wheat, grass and cattle." Overindulged Children. John Kuskin, at 73, had as keen a sense of taste "as most men have at 20, and greatly enjoyed new flavors, says the Youih's Companion. ' My palate," he one.; said, "serves me now so well, because when I was a cMld I was given only the plainest of food. When I was boy, too, I had but one or two toys and no amuse ments. Hence the keen delight which I now take in every little pleasure." , M. Kenan explained to a friend his habitual cheerfulness in ths same way. "When I was young." he said, "my life was simple and bare. I had few amusements. I kept all my illusions; hence little things which an indulged child in luxurious homos would scarce ly notice, now giv m-e aa old man real happiness.1' There is much philosophy and good sense in the above. To keep a zest for amusements -and a delight in little pleasures io eld age is inleed a real happiness and one which parents have no right to rob tbeir children of, by over indulgence in luxuries when young. How much better chance for success aUofor the children who must endure hardships and keep to plain living is illustrated ia an excellent article copied from the editorial page o the Los Angeles Times. The great Santa Fe Railroad system has a new general manager; his name is Henry U. Mudge, and the story of his rise is one that interests every boy in America who has to make his own way in the world, for it shows what p visibilities there are for those who can "Carry a tu-essage to Garcia," as the rise of many another men has shown before. When Mr. Mudge was bat sixteen years old, his father went to Kansas and took up a claim near Sterling in that State. At that time the Santa Fe was pushing its track westward and young Mudge secured a job as water boy to a gang of track layers. When work was stopped for the winter, the young water-carrier retured to Sterl ing and made a deal with the station agent there to do chores around- tho depot if the agent would teach him telegraphy. After but three months' practice at brass pounding, the lad was proficient enough to be appointed extra operator. Continuing in that line of work for three months, he took a six months course as brakeman, another six months' as train baggage man, and before reaching the age of twenty-one became a conductor. Fol lowing this he was successively road master, trainmaster, assistant division superintendent, division superinten dent, general superintendent of the entire system, and now be has been made general manager of one of the greatest lines of railway in America. All this has been accomplished since the year 1972. Became Wealthy Through Mines. The New York Commercial in its issue of January 23 thus calls atten tion to a notable fact : "It is an interesting fact that all the excessively rich men in the United States Senate made their money in mines and mining. Senator Clark, of Montana, by all odds the richest man in Congress, worth anywhere from $100,000,000 to twice that, made all his money in mines. Senator Hanna'a $12,000,000 was largely derived from iron mines. Senator Jones, of Nevada, is worth $10,000,000 in gold and silver miues, and Senator ElUins, of West Virginia, is rated at $7,000,000, mostly made in coal and iron mining opera tions. McConuell, from the Scranton district, is the richest man in the House. His wealth, estimated at $20, 000,000, was all dug out of the coal miues in Pennsylvania. Congressman Joseph C. Sibley is also a very rich man, the source of whose wealth is petrole'tim. Old Master Earth is a bountiful parent, and the sons she has endowed the most liberally somehow have a 6trong predilection for state craft." The man who rings the telephone the longest is generally the man who has the least business to transact. Sun. THE WOMAN BEHIND THE MAN. I've been a readiu'those months past 'Bout a man behind a hoe, An' a man behind a grip-sack With hits o' snap ami g-o 1 Then, the man behind the engine, An' a man behind the bull, But one soul haint beon mentioned That you bet can boa 'em all. Ripht a eettin' down to bedrock, . If it hadn't been for Eve AH the hoeing Adam evor'd done You could put straight up your sleeve. An' I Buess that poor old Noah Wouldn't thought it very tine To hoe around his grapes all day An 'mosey out to dine. An then u coming right on down To this 'ere timo o' ours. You'd find the men a sorry lot Without their right-hand bowers! Who is it gets up with the lark An' cooks an' scrubs on' cleans. While way out 'ncath a spreadin' oak Her man rests on his jeans? HSswork can wait, but her's canaot, And while no hoeathecorn. She does a hundred ditl'erentthinirs An' at 12 she blows the horn. An' when nt night the hosin' 's doiiD, An' he lays down to rest, Who is it, tired and wcarr-worn, tills the baby on her breast ? Then sews, a tnlkin' low to Tom 1 How he must sleep, a' crow To be a big, strong boy rijlit soon. So he can help paw hoe. An' if perchance his country calls, The man droiis his hoe to no. Who is it then picks up the tool An' finishes out tho row ? An' when, all battle-scored and maimed, He comes lrack, one arm g-one, Whois it hojies an' sings an' prays, A-hoeiu' rieht along? An! talk about soar boys an' m?n An' praise 'era allyercan, But remember, the man's behind the hoe. An the woman's behind the man ! lAnnella S. Gilmore. Remarkable Cures of Rheumatism. From the Vindicator Euthcrfordton. N. CI The editor of the Vindicator has had oeea.iion to test the eE jacy of Cham berlain's Fain Balm twice with the most remarkable results in each ease. First, with rhenmatism in the shoulder from which he suffered excruciating pain for ten days, which was relieved with two applications of Pain Balm, rutibing the parts afflicted and realiz ing instant benefit and entire relief in a very short time. Second, in rheutna tism ia thih joint, almost prostrating him with severe pain, whi;h was relieved by two applications, rubbing with the liniment on retiring at night, and getting up free from pain.

Herald. A Goad Cough Msdicine for Children. "I have no hesitancy in recommend ing Chamberlain's Cough Remedy," says F. P. Moran, a well known and popular baker, of Petersburg, Va. "We have given it to onrchildred when troubled with bad oougha, also whoop ing cough, and it has always given perfect satisfaction. It was recom mended to me by a druggist as the best cough medicine for children as it contained no opium or other harmful drug." Sold by Brockway's Phar macy. John J.

SCOTT A BOWNE, Chtmisis, New York. 9 jtryVng The press of the territory should unite io its efforts with Delegate Wil son to secure an appropriation for the construction of the Saa Carlos reser voir. This with a view to furnishing water for the Iudia.is "on tho reserva tion, which can be served with water for the irrigation of their lands.
