Brady, of the board of prison commissioners,'tates that the most pleasant personal relations exists between the members of the regular and irregular boards of com missioners. During the session at Yuma the "irregulars" called upon the "regulars" and reiterated their old demand for possession and received the old denial. They then withdrew to hold an independent meeting else where ami audited their own accounts i and those of their appointees. It was I reported that they also purposed ap pointing a full set of guards, but upon counting the noses of the unemployed people of Y'uma they found insufficient material, and postponed action in the matter. The "regular" board, hearing of their intended step, kindly tender ed tho eight old muskets they had just condemned, for the use of the "ir regular" guards. Ihe usual expenses ot the prison were about eight hundred dollars less than last quarter, but it was found necessary to purchase a new lioiler in place of the old and worn-out affair, and this expenditure made the aggre gate idightly exceed the amount re quired for last quarter. During the past three months there were about sixteen more prisoners under restraint than during the previous quarter. Mr. Brady fully investigated all the reports of crookedness in tho prison management and found there was not the slightest foundation for them. The prisoners are nil fed well with good food nnd but little complaint was made. Bob Dunn, of this county, is said g" be the most useful man at the insti tution. He has charge of the electric light, and keeps its glowing until four o'clock every morning. H is conduct is highly exemplary and all the of ficials aro ready and willing to exer cise their influence for his pardon. He has fallen oft" greatly in flesh and now weighs but 115 pounds, and he thinks that in a couple of years long er nature will release him if he is com pelled to remain there. Mr. Brady contracted a severe cold during his trip mid is threatened with la grippe. La grippe is just now testing the vitality of Gajl A. Swan, of the J. D.

' T A BEAR STORY. AX ADVENTURE OF E. M. KEAVIS IN THE MOUNTAINS. An Appeal for Life that Could not be Do nied Maternal Instinct of Brnin. E. M. Reavis, who cultivates a mar ket garden in a romantic valley of the Superstition mountains, is a charac teristic frontiersman and is full of stones of adventure extending from Oregon to Arizona. He is a man of fine education, well versed in current events, an hospitable neighbor and full of the fire and energy inspired by a life passed in the open air of the mountains and the chase after noble game. He is somewhat eccentric in his ways and more so in his personal appearance, but withal a man of kind and gentle disposition to his friends and an enemy to be dreaded. He lives alone in his pleasant home in the mountains and cultivates his model garden contentedly, minds hi? own business and likes other people to do the same. During his recent visit to Florence, Mr. Reavis very reluctantly consented to relate a little adventure to an En terprise renresentativo and promised at. some future time to supplement with some ot his more thrilling ex periences. Jt was about the first of November, 1S88, quite late in the afternoon, he took his gun and dog and went up in the pinery above his house to hunt for. bear. He roamed about their ac customed haunts but failed to dis cover any .evidences of their recent presence, and finally he went towards a small stream with steep banks, hav ing about given up the search, with the intention of getting a drink of water. The dog preceded him and, upon reaching the brow of the steep declivity, set up a loud barking with its gaze fixed up the opposite moun tain side. Mr. Reavis concluded the dog had sighted a deer but he could see nothing upon the hillside to indi cate the presence of any game. Just then he glanced down the creek and, opon the opposite side, a short dis tance below, Bitting at the foot of a j large tree, was a big black bear with I two fairly grown cubs. The bear was I looking at him and his movements. It ; was a good shot, but for a time he con sidered whether or not he would shoot it. The scene was such a peaceful one and the great eyes looked towards him with such an expression of con fidence in his good intentions that he almost concluded to shoulder his gun and turn homewards. But the natur al love of the hunter for game finally prevailed over his humane impulses and he took deliberate aim at its breast and fired. r-' i tie tn-n 1 tht 1 i lar L up tns i. ot m an Ti i id ln:-uie Jscnvm w wan .. . c . It tid. lie tstSMrimed Jvoin me .ri;e .-and advanced towards the creek to ue the bear climbing the opposite side and making towards the top of the moun tain, followed by the cubs. He raised the gun and fired again, this time at a cub, which he wounded, but did not stop its flight. He loosened the rope by which he held the dog and let jt follow. He found the blood of the old bear and the cub by which he folio? ad them for about a mile and then turned home, us darkness had come on. - The dog did not come home that night and the next morning lie saddled a burro and went to the summit in search of the dog and bear. Striking the trail of blood he followed it a mile along the uummit and there he found the dog whose rope bad got fastened to tho brush. He followed the trail further and cut across to head it, off, by a pass in the high peaks overlook- f iug Pinto creek. Upon arriving at a ' good point ot observation he heard a loud groaning, a most distressful sound, cotning nearer and nearer. He waited for it to come up on the bench about thirty feet distant, in the low brush. It was the same wounded bear with her two cubs'. L'pon reaching the bench she sinelled her enemy and put her nose up in the air and sat looking at him. Another shot was fired at the breast, but it evidently hurt without seriously wounding her. She jumped up, went back over the hill and rolled down. Mr. Reavis went out on the bench and looked down and saw both the cubs, crying pitifully. Another shot was fired, but too low, and it only cut the dirt under the bear. The strangest scene then presented itself that he had ever witnessed. For getful of her own sufferings, the bear caught her cubs and drew them to her breast as if to protect them ; one of them pulled itself away and slie reach ed for it and hugged both to her breast so human like, while the great eye3 appealed with strange human-like ap pearance, for mercy.. So striking was this appeal that Mr. Reavis dropped his gun and could not shoot again. It was like murder to do so. The bear then put her cubs down and went on through the brush. He kept on the trail to drop below her and head her off near the point he intend ed to camp, as night was then near at hand. He arrived at the i canyon he had selected for this I purjiose, which was intersected j by a lateral canyon at this point, ! and hitched the burro to a walnut j tree. He was sure the bear would come j that way as lie could still hear the j groans, so he went a little way up the i opposite hillside and lay down to sleep, i The night was quite dark and all he j could see from his position was the i white spot on the burro's nose. He , expected the animal would make some noise if the bear appeared, which j would be the signal of its approach, j No sleep came to his eyelids, and he could still hear occasional groans, then a rustle of the leaves not far j away, and again close by and suddenly one of the cubs came over the point where he was lying, and in its flight jumped squarely upon him! This was something more realistic than a nightmare, and he jumped clown from his position to the tree where his burro was tied. In doing so he passed close to the bank of the creek and was almost para lyz:d to hear an unearthly snoit and to feel the hot breath of the huge bear not over a foot away ! A mo ment later and ho was up the " tree where he remained for three hours. The next morning he tracked the bear and followed it until it stopped bleeding. It had wallowed in the sand occasionally and built several houses to lie down as is usual when the bear is about to die. It evidently did die, but he did not pursue it fur ther to make sure of the fact. If you cannot find what you want in your town write to J. S. MANSFELD, Pioneer News Dealer of Ariz., Tucson, Arizona.

Mohawk Kancli. hoiom-onvme items j Mr Cole Saunders, connected wiiu the Mohawk Ranch Co., is in the city for a few days. Speaking of this ranch and canal, Col. Saunders gave us the following facts : The canal is located about midway between Yuma and Gila Bend in one of the choicest spots of Arizona. It is now complete and is eight miles long, car rying 3,000 inches of water and cover ing some 4,000 acres of land. It is in first rate running order. All the lands have been located and contracts made to take water from, the company's sys tem. Lateral ditches now cover the whole of it and water can he distribu ted rapidly wherever required. Two thousand and five hundred acres are now under fence. E. P.. Wagy, general superintendent, i man of large experience and grc it energy, is rapidly getting the place in shape to produce largo crops oi, alfalfa and other food products for cattle. . A test fruit orchard has been set out and other fruits are also being put in. 1 n side of another year 2.000 acres of raisin grapes will be under culliva tion During the present season twelve miles of borders have been made i around the land to properly irrigate it, '. I and an equal amount will be coiistrue Jt i ted within the nest sixty days. Five hundred acres ot alfalfa will be m full bearing by July 1st and an additional 500 acres by January 1st. The com pany will be large buyers of cattle to consume the alfalfa produced. The intention is to clear the 2;00 acres as rapidly as men and. money can do it. Mr. Saunders says that the MOHAWK CANAL CO. has recently completed a good canal that cost ovcr?10Q,000. It carries 10, 000 inches of"vvater and covers some 30,000 acres of land. Parties who have located under the canal are rapidly clearing and preparing their land for cultivation and putting in orchards of lemons, limes and other fruits. They are also raising much alfalfa with the intention of feeding and raising fine horses. The ranch of Geo. W. Norton, super intendent of the company, is a sample of what good management and energy can do. A number of other canals in the neighborhood have been completed and the lands located. This is undoubted ly one of the garden spots of Arizona and will some day rival California in productiveness. It has the soil, the wa ter, and the temperature requisite to the proper cultivation of grain and fruit, and with these advantages nothing can keep the Mohawk coun try from advancing rapidly -in pros perity.

Upon a tributary of the Colorado river, the Yirgin, are situated the salt mountains which are destined to be the source of great wealth to--some one. They cover a stretcb--rj'f about twenty-five miles on botli sides of the Yirgin river, seven miles up from the Colorado. The salt they contain is pure and white, and clearer than U iss, and it is said that a piece of it -tenor eight inches thick is some times clear enough to see through to read a newspaper.

The Colorado is the e-reaiesl field for explorers on the North American continent besides the Arctic regions, and the wonders yet to be unearthed there will probably much more richly reward the attention of the scientist than even the unknown spaces of the frigid north.

To dig or not to dig the tubers- of an infested field is a question that has never been satisfactorily answered. Some as sert that the tubers ought to be dug as soon as practicable after the rot has at tacked t he vines. Others claim that it is better to wait until the diseased vines are quite dead before harvesting the crop. Professor Scribner, of the agri cultural department at Washington, says: "If the digging be delayed for a week or two after the tops have been thoroughly dead, and performed when the weather is sunny and dry, there is little possibility of infection at this pe riod." Professor Byron D. Halsted, botanist of the New Jersey experiment station, in a recant bulletin says: "It is evident that after the vines have been killed there can be no further growth of the tubers, and as the disease first attack the leaves and tips of the vines and works downward towards, and finally into, the tubers, it follows that there there can be no loss in yield, and a great possible gain in healthf ul ness by early digging. As a rule, the potatoes should be removed from the soil is soon as possible after the vines have been 'struck' by the rot. The dead vines abound in the spores of the disease and it is possible for the tubers to be infected by contact with the vines at the time of digging. Therefore, it is an important and inexpensive precaution to rake the vines into heaps and burn them before the potatoes are dug, at the same time destroying millions of germs of the rot, some of which might otherwise do injury elsewhere." The same conditions favor the rot after as before digging, and therefore the dug tubers should be left to dry thoroughly; then the sound ones may be stored where they can be kept dry, cool and with a good circulation of fresh air. A damp,, warm, close cellar favors the growth of the rot. Air slaked lime, a handful or so per bushel, may be dusted over the freshly harvested potatoes to destroy any adhering germs. Decayed potatoes ought to be removed from time to time during the autumn and winter as soon as detected In the bins. . Some growers compromise the matter by digging their potatoes early if there is a prospect of long continued wet weather, and delaying the harvest if the weather is fair.

Eating watermelon is an art, learned only by experience. As a dessert It is not a suc cess. It falls too heavily on a dinner. Like a pretty girl, it is best by itself: it loses half its charm by being mixed in a crowd. The j melon should be cold. It should be ripe. Its flesh should blush like a graduate. Its heart should glow like a sun kissed cloud at close of day, and its temperature should be as chilly as the smile of a Boston belle. When you get such aa treasure do not bother with other tood. Open it, gaze on It, bury your face m its sweetness, and let your appreciation run riot. Baltimore American. A Severe Shock.
