Theodora Boosevelt is 42, and William McICinley is D7 years of age. ( At the age of 15, Bryan entered Whipple. Academy, the preparatory department of llliuois College, at Jacksonville, 111. Mr. Bryan euntinued on through Illinois College. At an early age Mr. Bryan entered . iuto public :.jxaking, throwing liiuiself with ft! vor into broad public ciueiitious. lie then studied law at the Union Collie of Law in Chicago.

White in the House he received the distinguished honor for so young u member, of being placed on the ways and means committee, lie was re-elected to congress the follow ing term, which was a signal victory inasmuch as the state had been reap portioned into ongressional districts, the new iHstriet being strongly repuL lican. In 1894 Mr. Bryan ran for the United States senate, his opponent being Senr.tor Thurston. As tiie state was heavily Republican, Bryan was defeated. It was during thiscampaign that Bryan and Thurston conducted a series of joint debates, which attracted an immense deal of attention and were characterized by a spirit of f riendliness and fairness on the part of both con testants. On September 1, 1814, Mr. Bryan became chief of the editorial staff of the Omaha World-Herald. Mr. Bryan was nominated for the presi dency in Chicago in 1893, on the fifth ballot, one of his oppontnts being Mr. Stevenson, who was nominated In the city four years earlier for the vice presidency. While both republican aud demo cratic candidates for the presidency and vice-presidency are interesting public sneakers, Mr. Bryan is by far the leader. While In this city last spring, he spoke to almost 15,000 people in the Velodrome, and, although he had spoken twice before that day his superb convictions were conveyed to his hearers by a stronsr voice and im pressive manner. Mr. Bryan is a tireless and effective campaigner. Mr Bryan resides at Lincoln, Neb., with Uis wife and three children. Mr. Bryan is universally liked and respected by persons of all political persuasions. 13 C.J T..3 ;,vi.i''' f''i,'- ' "' '- '!. '45'; 'WW'i Ml, .-" B. Heyman Furniture Co.

"Don't you know, sir," continued the sage, "that if you would save that money, by the time you are as old as I am you would own that big building on the corner?" 'Do you own it?" inquired the smoker.

Much of this population has been attracted by the cry of goid, and th capital invested to-day m western mines is enormous. Yet it is not tithe of the amount which the valu of the mineral laden ore of the west warrants; only these minerals are locked largely in the grasp of the ari belt. Water is what is needed. Hill and mountains of extreme richness li undeveloped and desolate, surrounded by barren deserts or sagebrush plains, Capital is slow to venture into such places, even with gtuat mineral wealth in sight. Gold is not the only metal, tons of which are locked in the rocky bosoms of the western sierras, but all the family of baser metals are richly represented and the question of trans portation enters largely into their mining. Railroads will not follow mining camps alone. But reclaim the arid lands of the west; give to them a settled agricultural population, and here too will be a source whence to feed tha men and the mules that work the mines; feed them at reasonable rates. Many a torrent of great volume rushes down the slopes during the period of melting snows and spreads away in a glistening stream across the brewn plain, but before a crop can be rajsed its volume has wasted aud its bed become dry sand. Yet stow this water in a mountain reservoir and it would afford a perennial supply capa ble of irrigating laud whose fertility has never felt the washing, weakening power of rain. Then, along with the A Prolific Country. From ho Phoenix Republican.! Saturday witnessed the oigbty-see-ond birthday of the venerable pa triarch, B. P. Johnson of Mesa. His children number forty-two, and his descendants to the third generation number several hundred. That th3 eastern manufacturer is awakening to the possibilities of an irrigated west as a market for his pro ducts is shown t3 some- extent iu the rem&rks of Mr. Tom L. Cannon, the representative of an Eastern manu facturing association, at the recent trar-smississippi Congress. Mr. Cannon said iu part, "if the water that goes to waste in the Mountains of the arid regions; were stored and controlled it would save to the Federal government, by preventing floods in the overflowed lauds along the Mississippi river, more than the cost of construction and oper ation of reservoirs. If arid Aineriea were made humid, the crops produced would give to the Federal government revenue in the way of increased taxa tion ; millions of people would be em ployed ; millions of homes would be established, and the richest country ever known to the world of commerce would be developed. "If steps were taken for the con struction of storage reservoirs by the Federal government for tho reclama tion of arid America, the next fifty years would show a ratio of increase in population far greater in this sec tion than during the past fifty years. "I believe it to be the duty of every man who is interested in populating the western half of this hemisphere as densely as the eastern half is populated, to aid in the reclamation of arid America through irrigation by means of Federal storage .reservoirs, which will serve the double purpose of irri gation supplies and flood projectors." Some miners at the San Simon min ing camp, six miles south of Stein's Pass, last week prospected an old shaft which long had been abandoned. At the depth of thirty-five feet they found 4 body of carbonate ore, three feet wide. They took a sample of it whiek was sent to the El Paso smelt ing works for-analysis. It was found to contain thirty per cent of copper and six and eight-tenths ounces of silver. It had fifteen per cent of iron and thirty-six per cent of silica. If the abandoned shafts of this camp carry such ore what must there be in the properties that the owners thought worth saving? Lordsburg Liberal. work on the' road stopped.

Texas, and secur ing Texas influence and coin to build her railroad. Mrs. Beard's case is a pathetic instance of a woman's effort to fulfill a man's mission, and the con sequent failure. Her husband, Professor William Beard, was a man of means and abil ity. Three years ago he conceived the idea of a road which would give a mer cantile outlet to the- rich agricultural and mining country in western and central- Mexico and give Arizona a close connection with a seaport and a resultant decrease in freight rates. He obtained concessions from the Mexican government for that part of his road from Baoderos Bay to Culia can, and surveyed the greater portion of the line.
