From time to time the suggestion has been made that one or two regiments of Indians should be enlisted in the regular army. It is probable that before n great while this suggestion will be favorably acted upon. There are several considerations which make the suggestion a good one. The most important of these grows out of the fact that the Indians, if subjected to prop er drill and discipline, would makeverv good cavalry for service m the Far West.

The writer liad occasion to teach him some of the rudiments of the nrt find has always felt a deep interest in his useful career in these irrigated valleys or Arizona; mux, while the Territory is blessed with a climate of perpetual summer, its people can enjoy all of the staples of colder lati tudes. Every variety of shrub or Mower that adils beauty to the home and garden grows in tropical luxuriance, Arizona is destined to be the home of a great agricultural population, and when its system of irrigation is thoroughly de veloped there will be no more profitable and pleasant region in which to live. Ruins along the rivers anil in the valleys of Arizona indicate that it was once thick ly peopled and that acnculture was sue- one, which allows the mill to make a long, smooth and easy stroke.

Be careful to trim so as to produce suf ficient shade for the truuk of the tree to the south and southwest as a protection against tho sun, a thing much needed with us. Now we will leave you to culti vate and care for your trees until Janu ary l3t following, by that time they should have made a growth of fiom three to five feet more or less.

Harry Carpenter was telling me an In dian story the other day that well illus trates one of the peculiarities of the Indian character. Nearly all yonr readers will remember of the sentencing to Yuma about two months ago of the brave Apaches who murdered Ed.Baker in the Sierra Ancha mountains last July. About two weeks ago three Apache bucks, with passes from the commanding officer at the reservation, arrived in Yuma. Thev made their way to the prison, and by kigns made known to Captain Ingaila that they wantea to tatlc. An interpreter was secured, when it was learned they wanted to visit their imprisoned brethren. They were brought out and a conference en aued in Indian stylo. All seated them selves upon the ground. One would talk u while, theu all would be still along time, when presently another would talk. In this way several hours were spent. Finally all arose and proceeded to Captain Ingalls, when they made known through the interpreter that they wanted a fur lough for one of tho prisoners to visit home so he could see his family and have a hunt ing trip. .All three of the visitors ottered themselves as hostages for his faithful return, but the prison rules are inexor able and the Captain could not accept their terms. After another conference they sorrowfully left the place. There is no question but their p ledges would have been faithfully kept, and that after his hunting trip was over the prison er was would have rehired to again take up his cell and allow the hostages to go free.

Adjustable bearings, pillars and supports can also lie used, placed on piers of maaonry and thus made stationary, bnt this would be more ex pensive. With ancha waterwheel as you suggest, and with such a plant as "the Edison Electric Co. proposes to put in, in the proposition submitted to me you cau have all of the power you want, even if you line the Colorado with manufactur ing establishments from Yuma to the Gulf. Several years ago I carefully ex amined the Colorado river from- the Needles to Montague island. I know the points well to which you refer. Your other plan of furnishing electric power to run pumps, quartz mills and other ma chinery, which may be located back from the river is a good one and perfectly feas ible. In my opinion yon have struck upon the most practicable plan of open ing np and developing the valley of the Colorado.
