Wallace w.is born in San Francisco August 28. 1801,-a'id isagrud uate of the California, lie has had many years of experience in the min ing iudustry. By a mere coincidence several years ago he formed the ac quaintance of Mr. .lolm fuotnas, a scientist from New iiampshire, and learned that Mr. Thomas had spent thirty-five years in the east experi-, mentiog with a compound minei al mag net as au indicator in the location of ore bodies, and that hiseacperiinent had met with ouly partial successes. Yet he nevtr despaired aud applied himself stuoiously to his metallic compound and finally succeeded iu perfecting it to the extent that he declare I it as perfect in the location of miueral deposits beneath tue surface an the maguet is to the poles. Bat the maguel whieU indicat ed gold deposits was found to be useless for silver and lead or for copper bodies, but when a compound was fouud that would act successfully ou gold deposits toe balance was comparatively easy, "lu 18S7 air. 1'ujinis, rorn out by years of cooslaut application to his scientilij efforts, realized tuat his days were oumuered and t.iat he could not live to enjoy the Oeuents of " nis dis covery. Mr. Wallace had become his confidential friend aud close attendant, and during the declining nours of his life he made Mr. Wallace a present of his invention, and now it is exciting the wouder of the prospecting fraternity, and many of the producing properties are considering its merilsio themiuiug circle. "It was thirteen years ago that Mr. Thomas, as a token of friendship, gave to Mr. Wallace his entire inveuliou, aud Mr. Wallace himself claims no per sonal credit whateverfor it, either for its mveutioo or its merits. The maguet is contained in a short piece of hickory wood about five inches in length, oval in its circumference and in ore and con- t.ius two parallel holes to nearly tne other end of the stick. Iu these two holes is loaded the solid suostance of lois mvsterious magnet to within about half an iuch of toe end. In these two holes Mr. Wallace inserts to limber sticks to eu ible hi.a to hoid toe tn tg let farremivet from his hauls so liiat tne miueral altruHou of ore body on tiie magnet will h ivj a mire p isitive indication upon the hau Is oy resou of tue loo levcnge.

Asa teslof the accuracy of ins instrument he offers to wager any am mat witniu his personal means that auy peism or numoerof persousmay take him to a twenty-acre bit which is barreu of ore bodies, put him in asccljded pla -e, biiudfoid him put him under guard, aud theu go any where in th tweuty-cre lot and push a $20 g ild picojioto the grouud where k cannot be seen, and he will forfeit the wager if witn his instrument he caunot Bnd it within ten minutes from the lime h s blind is removed aud he turned loose to search for the hidden com.

By Irrigation the Arid West Could Ee Bade Habitable for 50,000,000 Peeple. From the Albuquerque Citizen. It is not generally known that there are in the United States unutilized land to the extent of 600,000,000 acres. There are times when we are apt to think that the country is getting a trifle overcrowded and we welcome the open ing of little tracts of a few hundred thousand acres as affording opportune relief to a condition of almost danger ous congestion . But all Europe does not possess the area which is included in the arid region west of the Missis sippi. There's the rub it is an arid region. But in these days of vast iu erase in the employment of irrigation the solution of the problem of conges tion appears. This tremendous territory is capa ble of supporting a population of 50,000, 000 people. At the iucreasa rate of only 6ve or six milli ns in a decade, it will be a lonj tiuw before tha popula tion of thecountry hts reached 125,000, 000. But the time is coming, aud long before it arrives preparations must be made to accommodate a population roughly estimated by these figures. Those who foresee the overcrowded condition of the country must take into account the fact that a radical revision of the imtiigratioa laws is only a question of time and not merely with the suppression of anarchy in view. That consideration will have little numerical effect. Butaspopula lion increases, congested conditions will become more and more strenuous, and relief must come from the west. Something Worth Knowing About Mua The alluvial silts which are always carried, in greater or less quantity, in river waters, although they detract from their ageeableoess, are second in irrigating value only to the water it self. In wild country, undisturbed by the operations of man, and still covered with its natural vegetation, the quan tity of silt contributed to running streams is comparatively small, and consists largely of materials eroded from steeper slopes. But when forests and grassy plains are overrun with sheep and cattle, when the grasses are destroyed and the surface is ground to powder by trampling herds, when the rainfall begius to gully the range and the debris into the river the quantity of mud carried in irrigating streams becomes very much greater. Its quality, also, most be affected by the . stock-manure swept into the drainage from the surface of the ranges. Now, just as the dep3sit of mud re sulting from the anuual overflow of the Nile accouuts for the fertility of the Egyptian lowlands, ao do the rich silts deposited upon irrigated lands in Arizona account, in large part, for their constantly Increasing productiveness. The two most valuable constituents of our river silts are nitrogen and organic matter, being precisely the elements of fertility deficient in our burned out arid region soi's. The ad dition and incorporation of these deficient materials is largely respousi ble for the well known improvement by irrigation of desert lands. The fertilizing value of these river silt to an irrigated district may be judged when it is stated that, for the year ending August 1, 1000, the mud deposited on the irrigated lands of the Salt River Valley, valued at commer cial rates for fertilizers, amounted to about one milliou dollars, or, not far from eight dollars per acre for the valley. Considered as an investment, this eight dollars of value, which is disregarded in the cos.t of the water, returns with increase in the resulting crops. Flood waters, heavily charged with siiu, especially after a long seasou of dry weather, are of course far more fertilizing in character than the com puauvely clear low stage waters. An acre-foot, equal to a 12 hour run of 40 inches, of three sample flood waters frotd the Colorado, Salt and Gila rivers, had the commercial fertilizing vaiue, reckoning to include potash, nitrogen aud phosphoric acid, shown in the' following table : Ql'timi'I A3TD VaLO 0 SILTS IS OBI ACBI FOOT OF WATER.

Gi la river Sept. 8-15. 1U.9 S6.49' The value of occasional irrigations with water of this character should be considered in connection with artesian well and irrigation plants which pump from wells. Such water supplies contain no fertilizing silts, and, incidentally to their use for the irrgation of such as trees, vines and vegetables, it should pay thegrower to arrange, where possi ble, for an occasional ran of muddy water for fertilizing purposes. Muddy water has its disadvantages. Ditch cleaning is a serious item of ex pense to canal companies and farmers,' amounting, for instance, to about $3,500 a year for the 50 miles of main ditch belonging to one of the Salt river valley canals. Tender vegetation also, such as young alfalfa, is quite often destroyed by a coating of mud on the leaves ; but with the furrow method of irrigation, where available, and other precau tionary measures, the damage from, this cause may be greatly lessened. In this connection, the milky sedi ment in the upper Gila, resaltiog from the milling operations at Clifton, ia of inVrest. The irrigating water thua contaminated is popularly supposed to be injurious to vegetation ; but samples examined in the Station laboratories' show nothing chemically objectionable,' either in the water or in the sediment. In agreement with this evidence, Mr.' Henry Hill, a successful gardener near Clifton, says: "My large garden has been a steady producer since 1894, dur ing all of which time it has taken its' water direct from the works of the Arizona Copper company, the water so' taken baring always been adulterated with tailings. I have had no' difficulty in raising fruits and all varie ties of vegetables." The only injurious effect to be ex pected from the use of these tailings,' which are largely composed of sticky clay, is in coating the leaves of vgeta- tiou, as mentioned above. The failures of potatoes, beans and other crops attributed to the use of this water may easily be due here as ia' other localities, to other causes. River mud, however, is unquestion-' ably a menace to storage reservoirs,' especially so on so murky a 6tream as the Gila, whose waters we have ob served to contain as high as 19.6 per cent, by volume, of well settled mud. Yet even this fact may be made use of for 611ing in the depressions of rough land. Its efficiency for this purposes is illustrated by the experience of one' farmer of Thatcher, Ariz., who states that, having a little water to spare, he threw an embankment about three feet', high across the lower end of a piece of rough land and turned in his muddy water. In six weeks the embanked space was half full of mud, and, being . drained, gives him a valuable Held of most fertile soil. R. H. tfouBEs, Arl-' zona Experimental Station.
