Flagstaff is arranging a mid-summer carnival to take place August 6 to II. An interesting program is assured, and a great many people from all over the territory will visit the popular resort during that time. It is proposed to make a national forest preserve of the Santa Cata linas. There is no better location in the Bocky Mountain region as a preserve for wild animals, such as the government is endeavoring to pro tect from total extinction. A 3,100-pound steer raised in Iowa has been purchased by the Interna tional Stock Food Co., of Minneapo lis, Minn., and will be exhibited at fairs and stock shows for advertising purposes. The animal is over six feot in height, is three years old, asd during last year gained 1,000 pounds. The National Live Stock Asso'n has taken in hand the matter of the abolition of the usual holdup in the guise of state inspection on the in terstate movement of cattle, which is falling heavy on men who have bought stuff for the northwestern ranges. The rule has been to make stockmen pay a Colorado or Kansas inspector for inspecting cattle pass ing through those states, that had already been inspected by govern ment authority at point of origin. The object of this is simply to get the fees, and it is an outrage that should be stopped. IÍ such a sys tem of double inspection is necessa ry, it should be paid by the state that demands it. Ex.

HUNDRED THOUSAND Appropriated by Congress for tlon Surveys. Irriga- The Amount Doubled over that Al lowed Last year. Friends of Irrigation Made a Strong Fight in Congress. Always alert in the interests of the arid west, Senator Carter made an able defense of the item in the sundry civil bill of $250,000 for irri gation surveys and investigation by the Geological Survey during the closing days of congress. Last year's appropriation for this work was $50,000 and when it was pro posed to increase this amount this year, first to $100,000 and then to $250,000, it of course raised a storm of objections from senators who fail to comprehend the vital importance of irrigation to the arid region After strong urging by western sena tors the $250,000 was voted by the Senate, but unfortunately this was cut down by the House to the origi nal increase proposed of $100,000, which amount will be expended by the Survey during the coming year on this much needed work. The action of the House, however, shows the necessity of the West to stand together and present one solid frout and be bold and aggressive in its demands if it is desired to get right ful recognition from eastern con gressmeu on inese questions oi su preme import to the arid region. "The question is," said Senator Carter, iu the course of his remarks, "does this appropriation go to the acquisition of information on some subject of consequence to the people? Let us see. A THOUSAND MILLION ACRES. "There are seventeen states and territories in the arid am1 semiarid region of the United States. Those seventeen states and territories today have a population of about three million and a half. In those states and territories there are 992,617,600 acres of land. Of that acreage but 30 per cent, has passed into private ownership; the govern ment of the United States is the owner of 70 per cent. The extent to which these lands can be re claimed is dependent upon the water supply. The manner of reclamation is dependent upon a knowledge of j the volume of water available. No intelligent system of development can be prosecuted until we know the water available for irrigation pur poses. The facts are of supreme importance to the people living now and to live hereafter on two fifths of the American continent. "Mr. President, while we are vot ing here $65,000,000 for various pur poses, all of them national, all of them proper, raising certain appro priations to considerable limits, mak ing additions for river and harbor appropriations in the aggregate of over $12,000,000 ia the bill, and senators from the arid regions acquiesce in these appropriations because they are national and bene ficial, dues it seem right comprehen sion of a great situation to challenge an item in the bill intended to se cure needed and absolutely necessa ry information in order to deal with problems involving the very life of the country itself? We have reached the point in that arid region where we can not now, without the invest ment of very large capital, invite any large increase of immigrants to settle upon our soil. "Hundreds of people are passing each and every day upon loaded trains over as fertile land as ever the sun shown upon, going over the Rocky Mountaius and off to the humid regions of the Pacific coast. Why? Because in the state of Mon tana where we have 146,000 square miles, people have taken out nearly all of tne water and reclaimed near ly all of the land that individual effort is capable of reclaiming.

No acid but that from grapes which is pure, pleasant and healthful enters into Dr. Price's Baking Powder. Fruit acids are accounted by hygienists the most important of the elements of the food of man, and of these the acid of the grape is most prominent. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is not only the most effi cient and perfect of leavening agents, but owing to its constitu ents is likewise promotive of health. PRICE BAKING POWDER CO., CHICAGO. constructed heavy canals and sub sequently found that the water sup ply was wholly inadequate to supply the canal. This has been discourag ing to investment iu this line. What we need with reference to this mat ter is specific, authorative, substan tial information, vouched for by the public records of the United States. "Itis said, let private individuals do it. According to that suggestion the farmer living out on the Yellow stone is to build a guage for the benefit of humanity, and is to deter mine the flow of water that runs down that stream in twelve months. Why not, on the same principle, let sailors survey the coasts and establish lighthouses for their own guidance? To suggest that is to de clare that nothing shall be done at all. "Are the new struggling states, wherein the Government of the United States owns 70 per cent, of the soil, and is the great landowner of the country, to be charged with the expense of acquiring informa tion which is of equal value to Mis souri, Iowa, Nebraska, and all the states below? I think not. It is a government enterprise, looking to the development of government property, looking to the creation of conditions which will develop a superb population where waste places now exist." EASTERN OPPOSITION. Senater Turner, of Washington, who strongly favored the increase struck a respousive chord when he asserted that some eastern senators were prone to antagonize measures because apparently they were in tended to benefit the West. "I consider the amendment," he said, "as exceedingly important to the arid region. But I notice that nothing is ever offered in this body in the interests of that section that some senator from the eastern sea board, whose section has been amply provided for, does not discover that the work could better be done by somebody else than the particular person to whom it is proposed to be intrusted or he discovers that we are going into a reckless method of cream Note. There are many cheap baking powders made of alum. Liebig. the celebrated chemist, says that alum disorders the stomach and causes acidity and dyspepsia. appropriation which ought to be suddenly stopped at a point where the interests of the West require consideration." Guy E. Mitchell. California Consolidated Petroleum Company. This is an age of consolidation and the California Consolidated Pe troleum Company is born of this successful principle. The "ten-cent" oil companies are of few days and full of trouble. They must strike oil iu their first wells or bust, for with their money gone in a dry hole their stock is killed. If they sur vive they will be swollowed by the California Consolidated or the Stan dard, for such is the history of the oil business. There is only room for two oil concerns like the California Consolidated aid the Standard on the Pacific coast. These two giants will inevitably control the oil busi ness of California, and it is those wise enough to see this who are buy ing the stock of the California Con solidated Petroleum Company, which stock is likely, ere long, to make its holders rich. Already the stocks of a few other oil companies, bought at a nominal figure, are worth on the market several hun dred dollars per share, and the time is not far distant when a small block of this stock may mean a compe tance to the fortunate -owner. Cer- . tain it is that the present price will soon be doubled, and those desiring non-assessable oil stoek in a solid company, backed by solid men, will do well to carefully read the com pany's ad. which appears in this issue.
