New Mexico is willing to have
joint statehood, while Arizona is
strongly opposed. We would
rather, remain a territory some
years to come than to be, tacked
onto New-Mexico. f
The January number of the
Ilomemaker, a magazine pub
lished at Washington, D. C, con
tains much interesting matter
concerning irrigation in Arizona
and the west generally.
I ing interests of the territory will
1 not object to paying a reason
j able tax. This is generally un
derstood; but it must be just,, to
' insure the passage of the bill, and
the execution of the law created.
Mr. Parr seems to be the right
man for a legislator. Navajo
county, as a rule, chooses its
best citizens for this responsible
duty. Tucson Star.

The most important bill intro
duced in the legislature so far, is
the one fixing a tax on the net
proceeds of mines. It looks as
though this is about the only
way in which Arizona's chief in
dustry could be made to bear its
share of the taxes.
House bill No. 21, providing
that trainmen shall. not work
over sixteen hours without .a'
regular ten hours' rest, was de- j
feated Monday by a vote of 11 to ;
,10. It will be remembered that I
the house passed the eight-hour;
bill unanimously, but when it 1
comes to making a law which;
would protect the public gener- ;
ally, they seem ready to down it. :.
Mr. Parr, of Navajo, was a
strong advocate of .the measure, i
The Saturday Review, pub
lished in Phoenix, has. been in-;
formed by the secretary of the
territory, Isaac T. Stoddard, ;
that hereafter it will not receive ;
any articles of " incorporation ;
from his office for publication.
His reason for doing so is because

his recommendation to the legis

Mr. Parr. j
Hon. W. A. Parr, of Navajo
county, seems to be made of the
right kind of stuff.' ". He believes
in the legislature showing off to
the best advantage. He- intro
duced a resolution, which was
adopted, prohibiting smoking in
the assembly hall during the ses
sion of that body. This is all
right. It shows the right spirit.
It will prove agreeable to both
the members and visitors, especi
ally to the ladies. :j
. Then he has also introduced a
bill taxing the net proceeds of
mines, this is in the interest of
equal taxation. 'No doubt the

used anything for stock that gave half as
good satisfaction. I heartily recom
mend it to all owners of stock.

' Sick stock or poultiy should not
eat cheap stock food any more than
sick persons should expect to be
cared by food. When your stock
and poultry are sick give them med
icine. Don't stuff thctn with worth
less stock foods. Unload the bowels
and stir up the torpid liver and the
animal will be cured, if it be possi
ble to cure it. Dlack-Draueht Stock
and -Poultry Medicine unlcads the
bowe!3 and stirs up the torpid liver.
It- cures every malady of Stock if
taken in time. Secure a 2o-ceni can
of Black-Draupht Stock and Poultry
Medicine and it will pay for itself ten
times over. Horses work better. Cows
give more milk. Hoys pain flesh.
And hens lay more eqgs. It solves the
problem of making as much blood,
flesh and enorgy as possible out of
the smallest amount of food con
sumed. , Buy a can from your dealer.
