The movement to enlist government aid in "annexing" the arid lands by constructing canals and reservoirs is steadily gaining ground. The recla mation of our arid lands by the gov ernment would be a form of "Im perialism" or "expansion" that would be objectionable to no one save and except the extreme eastern states. There is sufficient arid land in the west, which is now useless and unin habited, to furnish homes for over 50,000,000 people, and there are mill ions of people in these United States who need homes and who want them. The reclamation of these immense areas would be "imperialism" on a grand scale. It would add a great ness to this government that it can achieve so peaceably, so cheaply, so justly and bo gloriously in no other way. It would dot the wide-extending desert wastes, now looked upon by the traveler with dread and with horror, with prosperous and bappy homes, orchards, gardens and waving fields of grain. It would dissipate the deceptive mirage, and instead of its alluring glitter the rays of sunlight would dance lightly upon school cupola and church steeple like celestial constellations from a cloudless firma ment. It would give steady employ ment to thousands of idle men, and it would be a living, active and a loving proof of the paternal care of the gov ernment for its people and of its solici tude for their welfare and happiness. That is an "imperialism" that we can all advocate, that we can all work for, that we can all fight for and that we can all pray for. B. Heyman Furniture Co.

He would stand for McKinley and bitterly de nounce Bryan, and .finally his Satanic Majesty would make a will in which would provide that In case of bis death or removal from the United States his newspaper should be turned over to Mark Uanna." Irrlga- As the Devil Would Do. The editor of the Atchison Champion concluded he would have his paper run for a week as the devil would run it and wrote to prominent men over the state for their opinions as to how they thought bis batanie Majesty would handle the job. Among those who an swered was ex-Governor John P. St. John, who said : "I have received yonrs of the 20th uH. asking me to give my opinion as to "How the Devil Would Ran a Paper,' and in reply thereto I desire firstto congratulate you on your ex cellent judgment in selecting me to an swer that question, for my familiarity with bis Satanic Majesty enables me to impart to yon a lot of information that the ordinary pious man knows but little about. "The first thing the devil would do would be to write a salutatory. He would give it an intensely religious. tone. He would scout for Old blory, and scream for liberty, and pitch into the Mormons, but would not say a word about the thousands of slaves, and nur government's salaried sultan an his 17 wives under the protection of the American flag on the island of Sulu. He would openly favor bimetal lism and secretly work to put the gov ernment on the single gold standard. He would talk long and loud about the people's money,' but place them at the mercy of the national banks to get it. He would declare that the Cubans 'were and of right ought to be free,' and then refuse them their freedom. He would denounce fraud, and then send word to ca oners of rotten beef to clean up and get ready to be white washed. De would stand quietly by, and without even a protest, see the organized trusts rob the people of hundreds of millions annually, and call it prosperity. He would advocate the levying of a high tariff tax on the poor man's food and clothing and tell him it was protection. He would be as quiet as a graveyard while we were burning negroes at the stake and punching their eyes with redhot irons, here in our own country, but would make bis columns speak in thunderous tones in favor of sending our soldiers 8,000 miles from home to shoot our civilization and Milwaukee beer into the Filipinos. In a desperate frenzied effort of a powerful monarchy which has been a' robber and oppressor of weak nations, to crush by brute force a brave people of South Africa who are struggling as our forefathers struggled four generations ago for the right of self-government the devil would be on the side of the monarchy, and gloat over the downfall of the re public. He would take his position in his newspaper that by the providence of God Puerto Rico was the property of tke United States, and that her peo ple were our people, and by this same divine providence, and by the cry of 'benevolent assimilation,' and to im press upon the Puerto Ricans the lesson that 'whom the Lord lovetu he chasteneth,' be would put a 15 per cent tariff on the product of their labor. He would indulge in long prayers for temperance,, and editorially wink at the Klondike jointists to close up dur ing the "dull' season, but, throw, their Business Man Favoring National ' tion. The Commereial Club of St. Paul, Minn., comprising the leading mer chants of that city, lias passed ringing resolutions regarding the irrigation of the arid lands. The resolutions recite that there are 100,000,000 acres of our domain that is subject to reclamation by irrigation ; that the eastern half of our' country contains a population of 58,228,000 and the western half 4,404, 000, and if the arid lands were re claimed the western half would sus tain as many people as the eastern half; that the domain belongs to the whole people and its reclamation would be beneficial to the whole coun try, and that its reclamation can only be accomplished by the construction of canals and reservoirs entirely be yond the scope of private capital or the resources of the States, and Terri tories where such arid lands are situ ated ; that such reclamation, therefore, falls under the domain of the general government; that all of these lands be held in trust and reserved for tbe- peat pie and that no grants of title to any of the States be made, nor to any one except actual setters; favors storage reservoirs to save flood waters, and their construction by the government ; the preservation of the forests de clares in f,avor of leasing public lands for grazing to actual settlers on ad joining lands i urges Congress to ap propriate not less than $350,000, for surveys and maps and plans for reser voirs and canals and, for sinking arte sian wells. Never Admit Dofeal. From Success. Never admit defeat or poverty though you seem, to.be djow.aand.have not a cent. Stoutly-assert yonr divine right to be a man, to hold your bead up and look the world in the faee; step bravely to the front,, whatever opposes, and the world, will mak,e way for you. No one w.ill insist upon your rights while- yon yourself doubt that you possess the. qualities requisite for success. Never allow yourself to be a traitor to your own cause y under mining your self-confidence. There never was a time, before when persis tent, original force was so, much in de mand, as. now. The namby-pamby, nerveless, man has little show in the hustling world to-day. In. the twen tieth century a man must either push or be pushed. Everyone admires the man who can assent hja.righ.ts, and to take them if denied him, No one can respect the man who sinks in the rear and apologizes for being in tbe world. Negative virtues. ar.e. of no nse in win ning one's way. 16 ia the positive man,, the man with original energy and push that forges to the front. There Are Others. From the Phoenix Gazette.

Meteors Pnefer- Morning. An interesting and significant fact is that the average hourly number of me teors is only half as great in the even big as in the morning and in the even ing their velocity is lower. The reasow is that at sunset we have before us the point in the heavens from which we are ttioving in our orbital journey around the sun, while the morning we face the point toward which we are advancing: in the evening we are in the rear'of the earth, at sunrise in front. This in crease m the numbers and speed of the morning meteors is just-What ought to happen if they are bodies moving indis criminately in all directions under the sun's attraction,, and with the velocity (about 20 miles a second) which a body would acquire in falling toward the sun from a distance very great as compared1 witb the size of our planetary orbits.. Trof. C. A. Young, in Lippincott., Played for Big Stakes, '' From tbe Coconino Sun. There is a man in the Ynma peniten tiary serving a sentence of two years and six months for burglary, who thinks, his confinement is just. But it is not. He had as equal a chance of being innocent as guilty, and but for the perfidy of a supposed friend he might now be a free rnan. According to the officials of tle sheriffs o5ce the two men arrested for the robbery of J. W. Power's house, after being confined in the county jail, put their heads to gether to form a plan of defense. As a result of their delibej-fttioDs, one was to plead guilty and take, all tho blame while the other was to rely on that act to gain his freedom. But who w.as to plead guilty? It was. at last decided that the question should be settled by a game of cards and that the loser should be the one to confess. All tbe prisoners in the jail knew of the novel contest and gathered around the prin cipals, offering advice aa to tha best methods of play ; but the Judaa of the crowd had arranged a series of signals and by their use he quietly "tipped the hand"-of the man w ha was. sup. posed to be his friend. The loses, true to his promise, carried out his end-, of tbe programme and the line of defense proved successful for his oppo nent. If the prisoner in Yuma, e,ver finds out th.at he, via, jibbed"' he has tha. satisfaction of knowing that he is a "dead game sport." Charles E.

From the Phoenix Gaxette. . George. U.

The elevating capacity of the plant will not be less than three hun dred inches of: water. The water at the point were- the works are to be erected is within ten feet of the sur face.

Aimrrlrafl 3(rtdlrl Pralltd. The behavior of the American sol--diers in the far east baa attracted at tention in all parts of the world. So recently as just before the outbreak of the Transvaal'-war the Daily Mail,, of Grahamstown,.
