KINGSBURY, Attorney-at-Law Practice* in all the C >urts. Special attention to land cases.. TEMPE, - -ARIZ. ARIZONA. The Los Angeles Times says: I '’her** ire several important colonization enterprises now under way in Arizona which promises to largely increase the population of [ that Territory within the next few years. The advance which has been made by Arizona in a horti i cultural direction during th p*st five years has been <|uit<* n ina* li able. A dozen years ago, when the Tombstone mines the atten- tion of the country to the land of » sunshine and silver, scarcely ajny -1 one*outside of the Territory was aware that anyth'ug hut cactus ■ and could be made to grow down there. Now, however, there ore already thousands upon thous ands of acres of orchard and vine yard along the valleys of the Salt and Gila rivers and canals have been constructed which will irrigate sufficient lands for of. acres more. Already Arizona fruits are being shipped east in consider able quantities and may be found in the markets of the great cities. Arizona is just now in the transi tion stage, through which Califor nia passed about twenty-five years ago, and judging from has already been accomplished, we may expect to see a wonderful transfor mation in the Territory within the next decade. ft With statehood, which now pears to be a certainty within a very brief time, the land of the Gila monster and sahuara will enter upon its career as a garden instead of a desert and will add one more to the marvellous proofs of what can be accomplished in the, arid west by means of water. The peo pie of Los Angeles watch with in terest and spmpathy the develop ment of this Territory which they regard as a portion of their baek country. One of the greatest enemies of this republic is that destroyer of happiness known as the “classical musical teacher.” No agent has done more to perpetuate our form of republican government than pop ular music. It has won battles, made happy i oines, civilized th savage, end in a thousand and one ways added to our greatness. All of our great inventors were lovers of p ’pnlar airs. No mother ever raised a child or rocked it to sleep with the discordant sounds of a modern “selection.” The child would cry itself to sleep over such music. De Kouski, the musical purveyor to the Austrian court, conld not draw a pa> ing house thro’- out all the United States, and took back to his native country only a few weeks ago a poor opinion of Americans, whom he characterized as “too sympathetic” to appreciate music. Music is the art of inspir ing the soul to better deeds, but raus»c must have melody as its groundwork to in pir * anything. New York has a novei society for the amelioration of distress called the Association for Improving th« Condition of the Poor in its De partment of Food Supply. It also has one for the Distribution of Flowers to the Poor. It is expected another club will soon b« organized for the Promulgation and Distribu tion of Chafing D shos Among tlm Deserving Destitute. It does no seem to have struck N«w Yorker* that a society for Providing Horse Sense for Persons Who Can Help the Poor but don’t know How, would be a mighty good thing. —Chicago Herald. The first white person lawfully cremated within the present limits of the United States, according to wishes and desires expressed by himself, was 001. Henry Laurens, * one of the Revolutionary patriots He was born in Charleston, S. C. in the y«ar 1724, and died on his 1 plantation near that place on Dec; 8, 1792 His will, which he had requested them to open and read the nex'. day after his death, was supplemented with the following: “ I solemnly eujoin it upon roy son as an indispensible duty, that, as soon as he conveniently can after my decease, he causa my body to be wrapped in 1.2 yards of toweloth and burned until it he entirely cobl - i The request was-, carried out to the letter and was the begin ning of cremation in America. At a recent social event in the country there was present a digui fiod and very slender young man from town who, it was easy to see,* had a very good opinion of himself. A not altogether flattering reputa tion, acquired by his alleged tenor voice, had preceded him to the backwoods, and soon after his ar rival he was surrounded by a bevy of mischievous rustic maidens, who i begged him fora song. Like many young singers he needed much pei* 1 - suasion. While the girls insisted, an old farmer, who had been stand ing near by for some time, suddenly cried out: “Sing for ’em, young man. I know you kin sing—you’ve got legs so much like a mawkin’ bird’s. He did not sing. A citizen of the southern part of the territory is said to be con vinced that the human race had tails like monkeys at no distant date, as he has found stone slabs scooped out for seats, and at the proper distances, just back of the seats, are holes where the tails hung through when the people sat down. Some of the seats were backed, while the others showed where the backs were broken off.—Courier. Another proof of the wonderful effects of our glorious climate. One whose charity is as broad as the earth, who is generous to; a fault, who is honest to a rival; who becoming a friend, remains a friend through thick and thin; who, lov ing, loves with all the ardor of a noble, consistent mind; who being convinced of the right, is as immo vable as a sphinx and yet is wise enough to hold his judgment in sus pense and to change his attitude should superior arguments be bra’t to bear—such a one is an ideal man and one of nature’s noblemen.^—Ex. A great strike was made in the Golden Cross at Gold Rock last Sunday. A big pocket, was de veloped from whieh fabulously rich stuff was taken, some reports plac ing it as high as $7,000 to the ton. Up to last accounts the end of the pocket had not been reached. The distance from the surface was about 150 feet, Further details will be awaited with interest. The Golden Cross is proving itself to be a splendid property.—Courier. The gravel chute at the prison went down last Wednesday after noon The cause was the excavat ing which had been done to allow wagons to get under the chute. Two large boulders were loosened at the northwest corner and when they were taken out the structure went over. The convicts were taken off just in time to save them. A new chute will be pat ap at once and tfyc work resumed.—Times. People er etfter WerMs. I . A great deal has been said and much speculation been indulged in with reference to the question whether the celestial worlds are in habited by intellectual brings simi lar to the earth-inhabiting man. It scarcely admit* of a doubt that this interesting qaestion will ever remain a mere matter of specula tion, but let us suppose that beings resembling men in stature were dwelling on those glorious orbs we see in the vast vault of the heaven*, and let us investigate what propor tions they would bear to us, pro vided the length oI their bodies were in the jpauie ratio.to the diam eter of their respective globe as ours to the diameter of the earth. For this reason wo have chosen the lar gest orb that our solar system, the central body of that system itself a‘d the most star in the sky.- The average inhabitant of the planet Jupiter should stand about sixty feet iu his show. Were such a Jovian to visit our earth, hs would be able, without danger of dislocating his neck,.,to look into the topmost stortes of otir metro politan buildings: A Jovian in fantas cradle would be considered by us a very comfortable bed to rest in. The huge soldiers of Ariovistua whose mere sight struck terror into Caesar’s legions, would dwindle into very -pigmies were they to be compared, with the Jovian soldier; the latter would coolly pick up King Ariovistua himself, with three or four of his body-guard and put them into his knapsack to keep them as animated toys to play wifchr daring the hours lW of rest. —BaltimoreTSun. The 10-stamp mill for the Hug get mine has arrived at Gila City and will he hauled -06 the ground as rapidly as possible. Considerable delay Wat necessitated m shipping the mill by reason of hating to re load it at Colton. The Southern Pacific claimed that the ’ machinery was not properly loaded eh the cars and refused to receive them from the Santa Fe. Sentinel. Beginning with today the time in the S. P. shops will be restored to the old schedule of pine hours for a day’s work. As the men get paid by the hour they are naturally elated at the change. It is also pleasing to know that affairs in railroad circles require this renew ed activity. It is an indication that times are getting better in all branches of business.—Prospector Water storage can be accomplished economically for the Salt River val* ley if the land owners will take hold of the matter themselves. All the necessities for a retaining dam at the proper point on the Salt River are on the ground. Men of push and enterprise are wanted to carry it through.—Herald. , ... * T s. ; * * ' The most expensive fur is that of a black fox, Kamptschatka, the skin of which, when dressed, be comes a very attractive blue.

The ore from the Blue Bird gold mine near Gila City, which was taken from several places on the mine assayed $394.44 in gold and $4.73 per ton in silver. The prop erty is owned by Landlord S. S.
