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.

Mr. i\ 0. Case, state superin
tendent of public instruction,
was in Duncan Sunday night. He

building of the free schools of
the state. He left on Monday
morning’s train.
Mr. Mitch Sanders and wife
left Tuesday morning for Tucson,

for several months.
Messers. Windham, who were
formerly counted as two of Dun
can’s progressive cattle growers
and who, for the past several

They have become firmly con
vinced that Duncan possesses all
the attributes of a profitable farm
ing country.

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.
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
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

ing allowed a view of beautiful
Duncan. Our shade trees are
pleasing. Come to Duncan.

Representing State Normal
Professor Felton, teacher of
English in the State Normal at
Tempe, was in Duncan Friday in
the interests of the schpol tie rep
resents. Professor Felton states
that the young people of Duncan,
who arf attending the Normal
are ably representing their par
ents and Duncan. The whole coun
ty of Greenlee has a very good
representation there. This insti
tution is deserving of the unlimit
ed support of every citizen of
Arizona. Tfie inflderice this
school will have upon the destiny
of Arizona ia past knowledge.
The views of life gained there
by the young people of t£ge state,
will immeasurably affect their
after lives and lives-of all wi'tfi
whom they are associated.

Duncan’s Mineral Wealth
It is rumored that some of the
largest mining companies operat
ing in the Southwest are obtain
ing rights in the section tributary
to Duncan, v If these companies
once begin developmnet in this
section, there is no doubt that the
fame of Duncan as a mineral;
center would spread over the en- 1
tire country. Those mines al-|
ready operating are securing a;
fine dividend in proportion to the
amount invested; rather than the
copper of the mining towns to
the west of us, these mines
produce gold and silver, besides •
a plentiful percentage of eopper.
