A dispatch from Garden City, Kin., says: As the supply of hem lock and oak bark becomes less plentiful and the demand for leather increases, the question where the necessary tannates can be obtained grpws more and more important. Some people believe that the com mon t (janaigre plant (Rumex hy mpnosrpalus) will yet become the chief source of supply. The canaigre is a Spanish plant, resembling and c’osely related to the common yellow sourdock, but the foots are similar to the sweet _n * 1 a potato, It grows frpm the seed, but is best raised in the same man i' 1 I *v»S ner. as the - Irish potato It is a native of Southern California, Southern New Mexico, Western Texas and Arizona, and grows most luxuriously in the sandy ar royas or creek bottoms. For years the Mexicans and Indians have used the green root for tanning,and the root sliced and dried has been found to contain from 35 to 40 per cent, of tannic acid, three or four times the amount found in any of the barjk*. In recent years exten sive experiments have been made with it in this country, in Scotland and in Germany, and it is said that certain factories stand ready to bay all. that is o|tared a*t $75 a in Vienna and S4O in Glasgow. r Qne r Scotch firm, it is said, offers to contract for 16,000 tons a year. Canaigre is essentially an plant and is not injured by the drouth heat or frost. It thrives in any loose, sandy soil where it can obtain sufficient moisture, and grows in the late autumu and early spring, after which the roots re main dormant and are harvested when convenient, not being in jured by remaining in the soil- The planting is done late in the summer, and the yield is from twenty to twenty-five tons an acre. The wild growth yields about half that amount. At the I factory recently started at Deming the managers pay $6 a ton for all the canaigre they can get. The factory prepares* the roots like desiccated vegetables. The dry product is packed in bags weighing about ninety pounds each, and is ready for storage or shipment. When shipped in the green the roots are liable to become sour, which destroys the tannic acid. Experiments are being made here to determine whether canaigre will come up to the expectations of those interested in the matter. F. D. Ooburn, Secretary of the State Agricultural Department at To peka, is doing much to settle the problem of its adaptability to the semi-arid region of Western Kan sas. Experiments are also being made at Lincoln by A. Roenigk, a tanner. Secretary Coburn thinks that it can be successfully and profitably cultivated in any section where sugar cane or cotton will grow. • . fc Tjie, business.. of a newspaper man is to run a newspaper and the more patronage he gets the better newspaper he mns. This is the ! whole thing in a nutshell. Instead ! of denouncing your home paper, go j and give it the patronage [ you, send to foreign printing houses, | and enable it to be a good or a bet r ter paper. The newspaper is the * index of its town. A man of much travel said In our „ hearing, t the other day: “I have never been 1 to Phoenix, but it must take a eity 8 to support those daily papers with the patronage they have.”—Ex. Wednesday the Rio Verde Canal company filed a location claiming unappropriated water in the Verde river equal to a flow of 5,000 cubic feet per second. The company de clares its intention to build a di version dim 4533 feet nor Jieast of the mouth of Camp or Chilson’s creek. This dam is to be eighty feet high. For their horseshoe reservoir, above this, a dam 200 feet high is to be built. A second reservoir below, and nearly six miles above Camp creek, will also be constructed, as well as one ou New river, 100 feet high. Storage reservoirs Nos. 3 and 4 are con - templated, ono near the northeast corner of section 18, township 3 north, range 3 east, and the other at the “Four Buttes.” The latter dam will be seventy and six tenths feet high. At the same time the company declares its intention to build a canal frqpa the Verde west seventy-two miles to the Agua Fria river, and thence across it forty-six miles to the White Tank mountain and the Hasseyampa riv er. Beyond the Hasseyampa it wi'l bo carried twenty-two miles, m iking a total canal length of 140 miles. Contracts for $2,000,000 j have already been let to Minneap olis parties in furtherance of these extensive projects. Some magnifi-. cent land is covered the pioposed canal whenever water is turned upon it.—Review. The fnture prosperity of the peo ple in the arid region and the mil lions that this region can easily tie made to support depends upon the solution of the problem of water starage or the reservoir system. There is no lack of water. The trouble arises from the unequal aud unreasonable distribution, and the problem is to retain the water fall ing in the rainy season and that caused by the melting of the moun tain snows in reservoirs until it is needed for the production of the crops. And this problem is merely a question of capital first and en gineering skill second. The moun tains contain the water and the valleys the soil. Everywhere in the mountains are natural storage places for water that only need walls of sufficient dimension and strength to hold safely and surely the great mass of water. These reservoirs or artificial lakes, once securely constructed, the question of supply will bo answered, and all doubt as to the great future of ir rigation will be settled forever. The human race in nearly ten centuries older than science had knowledge of before, as a result of the extensive explorations of the ruins of Niffer, near ancient Babv ' «r lon, as described in a report to the State Department of Minister Ter*- rell at Constantinople. These ex plorations are being made at the expense of- Philadelphians, and Dr Peters and Prof. Hilpricht, of the University of Philadelphia, have , supervised the work. Many tons of tables, vases, inscribed brick, sarcophagi and the like have been exhumed, the sensual and revolting worship of the god Bel is more clearly known, his colossal temple with its 130 rooms has been ex posed, and the religion, govern . menb and customs of men who liv ed 4,000 years before Christ have been revealed by the translated inscriptions. Minister Ten ell says , that it will require sixty volumes t to contain the descriptions of the discoveries. The Toledo Weekly Blade* Os the now nearly twenty thous and regular publications in the United States, there are but two or three weekly ne-rspapers pub lished for general circulation in every state and territory, and of these the Toledo Weekly Blade is the best and most popular of them all. It is the oldest, best known, and has the largest circulation. For more than twenty-five years it has been a regular visitor to every portion of the Union, and it is well known at every one of the sixty thousand odd postoffices of the country. It is made especially for family reading. It gives the entire neWs of the world each week in such condensed form as will save readit.g scores of pages of daily papers to get less information. Re publican in politics, Temperance in principle, always on the side of justice and right, it is just the paper for the rising generation, and a great educator for the whole family. Serial stories, ,wit and humor, short stories, household de partment, question bureau, farm department, camp tire, Sunday school, and Young Folks are a few of the many other prominent fea tures of this great paper. A speci men copy will be mailed free to any address on applioation, and the publishers invite any person to send in a long list of addresses to whom they win mail sample-copses. They would be glad tomail a couple Os hundred specimens to readers of this county. The Weekly Blade is a very large paper, and the price *is only one dollar a year. Address The Blade, Toledo, Ohio. A correspondent Os an exchange wants to know what bifurcated skirts or bicycle dresses are. So far as the editor* has investigated the subject, a bicycle dress for la dies is a two legged dress similar to a pair of pants, only a little more so. It is rather full about the hip pockets and a trifle loose in the re gion where man generally strikes a match, while the b ttom around the ankle is tied to keep out the mice. This kind of dress cannot be put on over the head, but the wearer must sit on the floor and pull it pn the same as she does a pair of stockings, one on each foot. And she must be sure to get one foot in each skirt. She must also be sure to get the right part in front, and should remember sml not get too gay imagining she is a man.—Ex. The Norman Mine and Milling Company are industriously engaged under the superintendency of S. A. Douglass, grading and otherwise preparing for the erection ‘of a quartz mill on the Gila river. Work was commenced October 29, and is satisfactorily progressing. The mill will be a roller and concen trator, a process : for working gold ore with which- Mr. Douglass fa miliarized himself when in Austra lia. Although the mine is small it will more than compensate by the extreme richness of the ore, which ( we are informed is sulphurets, and varies in value from $l5O to S2BO per ton in gold.—Silver Belt. “I am a pious Christian,” the new Czar Nicholas 11, is reported , to have said, “but my belief in the I Savior does not entitle meto'per ( secute others on account of their , faith.” This is taken as an indi , cation that all religious persecution in Russia will cease.
