WHtfKE TIE WILD THINGS GROW O for the bosky gardens, Deep in the green old woods. Where ihe oak* have woven curtains | To shelter their sylvan broods; Where the pine trees murmur and whisner Secrets we long to know— -0 to rest in the shadow Where the wild thingß grow I There by the brook’s clear mirror. All on a summer’s day, * The bees, the birds and the blossoms Have it their own sweet way; There in the tender twilight, Barred h.v a golden gloom. •lushed in the deepest silence, The wood-ferns dream. There many a grassy pathway Leads to a fairy scene, Where the partridge berry’s coral Lights the dusk of the wintergreen; Where the bells of the precious twin* flower In the fragrant spaces blow— O to rest in the shadow Where the wild things grow I No country ever presented a more pleasing appearrnce to the eye than does Northern Arizona at present. A generous growth of verdure covers mountain and plain. Ihe level lands look like endless wheal fields, as the tall grass bends to the breezes, rising and falling like waves of the sea, while on the mountains a mass of vines, shrubs and undergrowth seem to contend for the occupancy of every inch of soil, and the very rock piles are covered with grape laden vines and wreathed and fes f ooned with deli cate creepers. The weeds assume tree-like proportions and the trav eler over the bare and obstruction loss mountain trail feels the need of a hatchet to cut his way through the serai tropical growth which seems to grow purposely to ob struct his path ai> ho goes forward. Such is the effect of a rainy season in this favored socrir»n of fertile soii and mild temperature.—Pres cott Courier. The gold discoveries in tho Tae jon mountains are worthy of the l nvestigation of mining men. Several experts have pronounced the claims as possessing a merit beyond the ordinary class of gold prospects, and they base their con clusions upon good grounds. The vast extent of the croppings has been argued as against tho value of the mines but the bold ledges that stand out in strong, relief through mountain and canon, are evidence that either a big deposit of precious metals exist there, or else all visible signs of ore bodies go for naught. The problem will however, be soon solved, as the work of development will begin at once and the merits of the find will be demonstrated in a practical way.—Enterprise. ■ ► »» The Prospector returns thanks to Rev. C. R. Nugent for a Bible, which adorns our sanctum. The thoughtfulness of the gentleman was stimulated by the announce ment in last night’s paper that “Naomi” was Ruth’s sister in the Bible story. Naomi was Ruth’s mother in law, not her sister. The question now arises, what on earth suggests the idea to Airs. Cleveland of naming her new born infant after Ruth’s mother-in-law.—Pros pector, And we always thought from our indisuuct recollection of the beautiful story, that “Naomi” was the daughter of Boaz’ favorite wife, Ruth. Maybe we’re a little mixed ourself. Arizona’s total expenditure in the miintenance of her public schools is over $140,000 per annum. Where is the state whioh can show a bettor condition from an edu cational standpoint when claiming admission to the Union.—Star, The Old Dominion Will Ron. j As foreshadowed in our last j issue, the call for a meeting be tween Superintendent Birry, of the Old Dominion Copper Co., and employees, was for the purpose of announcing a reduction of wages, made neccessary by th«i heavy decline in the price of coppe* Mr. Barry stated, in a few words, that tne company proposed a reduction of twenty-five cents in the wages of men who had been receiving $3 25, and that the pay of all those rece-viug more than $3 50 would be cut ten per cent. If the men accepted the reductiou more coke would be ordered and work con tinued. If not, the supply of coke on hand would be used up and the works closed down. It required only a few minutes for the men to arrive at a decision t They took the sensible view of the situation, and announced that they would go to work, realizing the prostration of mining everywhere throughout the west, and the dif ficulty of procuring work. Since last week there has been a further decline in copper (to 9:40 at 9.50 for Lake) but it is not likely to change the determination of the Old Dominion Company, as it is serai-offieially reported that operations here will continue re gardless of any fluctuations likely to occur in the price of copper. There is at this writing over 800- 000 pounds of coke between Wil cox and Globe.—Silver Belt. Many men think that newspaper rm*u are presistent dunners. By way of comparison, let us suppose a farmer raises one thousand bushels of wheat a year, and 3eils to one thousand persons in all parts of the country, a greater portion of them saying: “I will hand you a dollar in a short time.” The farmer does not want to be small, and says “All right.” Soon the one thous and bushels are gone, but he has nothing to show for it, and he then realizes that he has fooled away his whole crop, and its value is due him in a- thousand little driblets, consequently he is seriously em barrassed in his business, because his debtors, each owing him one dollar, treat it as a small matter and think it would not help much. Continue this kind of business year in and year out as the publisher does, how long would he stand it ? A mcment’s thought would con vince anyone that a publisher has cause for presistent dunning..—Ex. One of the sublimest effects in nature is occasionally seen by those who climb the tali and isolated peaks of the Rocky mountains iu Colorado. The dryness of the air and the strong heat of the after noon sun cause a rapid evaporation from the brooks, springs and snow bauks on the mountain sides, and this moisture, rising on the warmer air, condenses as it reaches the cooler, thinner atmosphere about the mountain top. The traveler, looking down, sees clouds literally forming below him, and growing thick ana black ever y instant, so thatgas they reached h •-■ level they roll skyward an 1 in huge masses of vapor ch it eclipse the view and bury him in darkuess Lightning occasionally leaps from the clouds and a mountain top is a particularly bad place to he at such a time. The stone signal service on Pike's Peak has been nearly wrecked by lightning more than, ouco, L. Salter, secretary of the Mesa Consolidated Canal Company, which '8 the oorap*n> repn wanted by A. J. Chandler, was in FJomiee a couple of days this weeks. He came over for the purpose -to in vestigate tbo work at the Buttes and for other, purposes. As a re sult of hi«« visit the force of men who have been working at the Buttes h«re h«en laid off. But this docs not mean that the idea of building a dam at that point has be mi abandoned. This company, like so many others, has bm*a severely cramped by the prevailing stringency and it has become * necessity with them to cut down their expenses until times becomH easier. Besides, there was no use of keeping a force of men to work there now, for the reason that it is not positively known how far it is to bed rock. When work is resumed proper machinery will be put, in to determine how fur it is to bed rock. John Westfall has been employed to atay at the Buttes and do work enough to bold the location, thus showing that the company has no intention of aban doning the work. Mr. Salter l«ft the impression that work was resumed it would be with the in tention of building the dam as soon as possible.—Enterprise, Iu the competition for inveat meat of capital Arizona is in rivalry with other states and territories that hold out the very inducement here advocated. Both Colorado and New Mexico exempt canals and storage reservoirs from tax ation, and the exemption have been of great value to both common wealths. Arizona must follow in her footsteps or see capital that would otherwise come here, go there for investment. This is a sub joct that should be kept fresh irt the public mind until the uext legislature takes it up and gives shape to a broad enactment cov ering the whole proposition. The Oasis is informed that such a bill was enacted by. the house in the last assembly, but failed to pass the council. It is a misfortune that it did not become a law.— Oasis. Superstition is attracting more and more attention every day. Th« Herald has given its readers some useful information concerning that new gold district hath in special articles and regular correspondence. This sort of information will con tinue in the hope of stating such facts as may be relied upon and induce investment in Goldfield and Bull Dog. There’s gold over there and it should not be allowed to lie in the ground.—Herald, About forty miles of new irri gating canals were opened up in this territory during the last year, and the system of irrigation has, one might say, only commenced. This year the new enterprises will be vastly beyond those of any pre vious year. Thus Arison* goes ahead, . making good preparation ; fr>r her erreater development when she is admitted to statehood.—Star, Utah showed the visitors at the World’s Fair that her chief crop has a musical turn. The 300 sing ers of the great Tabernacle choir of Salt Lake astonished the people on the occasion of the dedication of the now Liborty4>ell.
