TO THE GOLD FEDS FIFTH YEAR Arizona Progress The large smelter being built by the A. C. Co., at Clifton, is rapidly nearing completion. The proportions of this structure are enormous. The entire building will occupy several acres ot ground. It is one of the largest and most modern smelters in the world. The magnitude of the copper interests of the communi ties to the West of Duncan can scarcely be appreciated by those who are not directly acquainted. This is one of the reasons of Dun can's prosperity. The immense output of the ranches and farms surrounding the Gila f’ nds in the mining towns a ready market, at the highest prices. The demands of the population of those towns can more than accommodate the efforts on our part to supply. Every farmer, every cattle grow er, in the Duncan country is as sured of a ready market for any of his products. Mr. Chas. W. Parks, with his mother, Mrs. John Parks, is visit ing at the home of his brother, Mr. Jas. V. Parks. Mrs. Parks has the distinction of being one of the earliest settlers in the Dun can country. Her memory goes back to the time when Indian raids were of frequent occurence in the then thinly settled Gila Valley. She has the honor of be ing the mother of a family that is known throughout this section of Arizona for its progress in all lines that upbuild a community.

Devoted to the Interests of fireenlee County, State of Arizona and Southwestern New Mexico. Romantic Duncan. It is said that a man, once upon a time, wrote of a quiet old South ern city, where the men were peaceful and the ladies romantic. In this town, in the evening hours, a visitant, could from a - every home, hear the strains of the sweetest love song ever written, Juanita. The echoes of the unexpressed longings of the races of humanity seemed to be there expressed. Now Duncan is a western town, but there is about it the thoughts of the life that might have been, the deeds that men can accomplish. The spirit of Duncan is well typified in the artistic temperament of one of our men of business, Mr, Cecil Harris. Mr. Harris has or did, in his boy hood days, write a book, detailing the experiences of himself and a chum, of like pro pensities, who made a trip iown a river. The experiences they encountered, and the thoughts they thought, are the chapters of the book, but the most enliv ening part of this production are the illustrations, drawn by Mr. Harris, that enliven its pages. Mr. Harris is an illustrator of unusual artistry; his black and white sketches betray the eviden ces a delicate perception of things that are, and things that might have been. Farewell Sermon of Dr. Watt. Rev. J. Craig Watt, last Sunday at the Presbyterian church, de livered his farewell sermon to the Duncan people. Rev. Watt chose his text from Luke,” The Son of Man has come to seek and to savs that which was lost.” Rev. Watt preached with moreth&f) his usual power. A large attend ance was there to appreciate the elequent sermon, and the beauti ful music, which was rendered by a choir selected for the occas ion. Rev. Watt is undecided in regard to his future work in the Presbyterian church. He has been requested by the Home Board to take the pastorate at Lowell, Arizona. It is possible that he will accept this call. His family will remain in Dun can for the summer, at least. Rev. Watt is to be succeeded by Rev. J. E. Johnston, of New Albin, lowa, who will enter upbn his duties next Sunday, May 4th* The close of Rev. Watt’s pas torate in Duncan is regretted by the church here, and by many citizens. It is proposed to establisd in Duncan a large creamery. There is no doubt that suchan enterprise would be profitable to the own ers. It is a fact that we have all things necessary to maintenance of such an enterprise. Our alfal fa should be marketed in the form of all products of the cow; beef, milk, cream, butter. Mrs. Willis, on Saturday morn ing, left for a protracted visit to her former home in the South. While there she will visit num erous friends of girl hood days. Duncan regrets that Mr. Willis will remain from Duncan for so long a time. J. E. Allen, accompanied by his son and Messers. Page and Hobbs, came over from Lords burg last Sunday, for a few hours’ stay. It is well that the citizens of the barren towns surrounding are fortunate to the extent of be ing allowed a view of beautiful Duncan. Our shade trees are pleasing. Come to Duncan. Chas.
