ELECTRIC FARMING. . ,- x , old-time farmer is out oMtate./ Electricity, the master force, which by the end of the cf^ur? work and a'! tflo prowiito^ eo long baffled mankind, has bewi enlisted ih the iHb«a esse»ifi#l of mortal Oecwpafcioh— The farming of the future isetQ be done by electricity* UyauWoss and wires will attend to the . Vd#* - n«ss of the Mg farm. The sonorous “gee ho.yy !” of the up-country Koft tiller will be heard uo more, and the farm hand who would keep bis job will have to be thoroughly acquainted with ohms, volts and amperes. Edward At. Bently, of York has just mad<3 a Long *top toward the establish in unt u£ cdae trlcitj as a hard-working Iso tor <vn the farta. He hts patent'd an electric plow, wiiioh runs b.uik is Aid. forth across the held and t urns nt. the soil m a fashion that would hste made pioneer farmers of 100 years ago stand dumb with arnaeo mont. His invention call* into use tho moat recent development in the line of transmission of electric power. A power house in a cen trally located village can furnish motive force for all th* farm work ♦■o be done within a radius of many miles. Along the two opposite sides of a field poles and wires are put up, and between these, stretching directly across the field, is stretched a third Wire, which servos as a trol ley upou which the plow travels. This wire is slack, so that it may run through the plow oontrivanc®, which lets out wire behind as it progresses and winds it in at the front. When the plow reaches the end of a furrow the current is auto matically revised, so as to start the maebiua back again. Thus the plow goes back and forth until the whole field is traversed. The eudi of the trollay wire, as th* work progresses, travel along on the wives strung along the field. ■—Ex. The railing stock tl German statu railroad* has been provided with an appliance which will enablo the p&filetigers cm board a train to write without difficulty and regardless of the motion of (Jie train. The new appliauee consists of a board sus pended from the ceiling of the oar by strofg but elastic cords, which will prevent the vibration of the •loving krai*. from interfering with the writer. At the present time only the firet class oompartments of through trains are furnished with this appliance, and a small charge is made by the coadaetor for its tree. Thero is some talk of starting another newspaper in Prescott; rumor has it that it may be a weekly and independent in politics, If newspaper men were fixed like Nebucednezzer, the move would be a good eme, as grass is not quite so short since thf reoent rains. Even should there be a free coinage of meal tickets at a ratio |of sixteen tickets to one typo, the thing might do. But, as neither of these much to be desired conditions exist, there will be a general tightening of belts t to taka up the vs*cuutu in printing office peoples’ broad basket* if the third paper invade* tbit newspaper j raage. —<3o»rier. ‘ Prof. Rockfollow o£ tie Gnf vsnrity has met with unutoal suc cess In bringing this territorial educational institution before the public.

The I*amlo New* is responsible for the statement that a great many Mexicans living ou this side the Rio Grande are taking advantage of the liboral terms offered them by the Mexican government and aro now preparing to return in large numbers to their native land. Ift is ciftimacl that these poopla, who after having bean out of Mexico for many years, now long for their mother country as the Israelites longad for the land of promise. An Oregon in von tor has con structed a uiaoblne which digs, sorts and sacks potatoes. With it four horses and two men do as much work .‘is GO men can do by hand In the same time. This ma chine will have to bn operated as steam threshers are—driven from farm to farm, working for so much per bushel or per acre, as its cost puts it beyond the reach of the in dividual farmer. Reliable information has been received that construction work on the Gilt Valley, Globe & Northern railroad would be resumed very soon and tiie road built to San CUrlcs tbia fall. President Garland and Secretary litird are both in Los Angeles, whore the company is erecting offices and arranging for the early commencement of construction work. Miss Helen M. Gould has re cently added to her collection of raro palms a species of that plant called the Ravenala madagarvien. This palm is a little over 33 feet in height and nearly three times as many years old. The price paid for it, ramor aay3, was about $35,000. Otto Mergenthaler, inventor of the famous Megenthaler type set ting machine, occupies a tent just west of Prescott. He has been in that section several reeks in quest of health. It in the opinion of Connecticut exparts that morn than half tho c(iU’*H sold in this country is a sham and a s v indie. BUCOBSSFOL FAHMrm |t Many ot theiftfcji who own farms •nd are oonlipiallj cornels iuiiip at their. in having a bal ance'in (rfif last over at the end of the harvest are too apt to p)%ce the blaoidWr the result upon the sane rather than where it belongs- upon fcheniselves. According tto the World, the farmer who does not adopt the present daj methods of raising his crops, bu', hangs on to those which were in vogue when his father was a bjy, oaunot ex pect to be as fortunate in the re sults of his work as his neighbor who accepts the new aids to bw occupation and puts them into use on his fields. Neither cun the far mer who does not exercise a watch ful eye over his fields and the laborers thereon expect to reap re ward abut ooines to the one who does. The farms ;hat gjve the largest profit are those which re ceive the labor of the farmer; that is the farmer utilizes his capital in the shape of labor rather taaa titan to expend any sums for help. Labor is so muoh capital to be applied. and if the farmer does not utilize it he keeps that much out of his business which bhould be invested in it. A farm may pay and yet the far mer receives hat a small sum therefrom. It requires capital to derive a profit, and unless the capital is used the farm will not produce more than the venture. L%rge farms which are said to pay do not always give move than a fair percentage on the investment of capital employed. A farm in which $50,000 capital is invested for kittd and labor, and which pro daces SO,OOO per annum as profit, yields a dividend of ten par oect, while a small farm, in which only a thousand dollars is employed, may be claimed, to be unproduc tive, if the profit is only S2QO, yet the dividend therefrom ie twenty per oeat or twice as mush as that derived from the large farm pro portionately.—Stooksaao. XL 3. Surveyor Gsnaval Rosk rugs has issued a oall to his depu ties for bids for the survey of tl»e line segregating the Pinal county coal fields from the San Carlos Indian reservation. This marks an era In the prosperity of our county, as it mesua the building of rail roads, the employment of hundrods of men, and the adding of many thousands of dollars to our taxable wealth. No county in the terri tory has a blighter outlook than old Pinal .♦-Tribune, There is a man in Ohio named Jenkins, whose resemblance to Abraham Lincoln is said lo be wonderful. He is said to have reoeited in hia time enough jail sentences to found out an ordinary life, and been in enough brawls and accidents to kill a dozen ordinary men. Yet, on account of his Like ness to Lincoln, it i« asserted, he gets all the free passes on the rail roads that he wants, and almost any favor that he neks for.

Corn p omlsen 2,164,600 000 bushel this year, or 3,400,000 in excess of last year. Wheat is figuered at bushels against 467;102,947 last year.

If no employment can be prooursd for a member during the dull season, 50 cents per day are paid to him if married, 38 cents if single. The city has started a guaranty laud for the society with $6,000, to which 014,500 have been added by subscription among employers.

Rudiroan Johnston, fellow of the Royal Geographical society, Is going to erect in London a twr restial globe w hieh will show the earth’s surface on a scale of abcufc eight miles to the inch. This means that the globe will have a diameter of 80 feet, or about double that of the Mg srlobe which was exhibited at the Paris exposition in 1880. Every geographical featoro of im portance will be,shown unci named, as well as every city and town hav ing 500 inhabitants or more. Tb * miniature world will be examine from a spiral gallery, the glo«c revolving slowly.

With political and commercial combinations facing farmers on all sides, they must learn to co-ope rate and “pull together,” or suffer the penalty of being “pinned closer to the wall” than ever. They must investigate, and study and analyse for themselves everything that has anything to do with thsir welfare. Stork tuan. There are 334,000 hairs on .ha human body. FiXjf.
