It takes a rich man to draw a

The editor’s better half left us

the ease with the average country

Wickenburg is hardly large
enough to warrant the establish
ment of a board of trade, but if
everyone would send out their let
ters in envelopes bearing an adver
tisement of the town in one
corner, it would do much to
wards making the resources of
this section known to the outside
public. The postage would be no
more than on a plain envelope and
the cost tp the user would not he
greater than for an ordinary busi
Dess envelope with the return ad
dress printed in the corner. Try
it. We will furnish the envelopes
jf the people will use them.
The number of press clippings
which come to the News-Herald
office making mention of Wicken
burg and her surrounding mines,
is some evidence that we are known
to the outside world. Every clip
ping represents a different clientele
pf readers of from live hundred io
twenty-five thousand subscribers,
and when it is considered that tbp
report of the big strike at Saliauro
has been copied into a hundred dif
ferent publications it can readily
be conceived what a vast number
of people have read of Wickenbnrg

the things that a local paper can

The Man Behind the Pick.
•ttnerniSKZszu. :x_i at: iecj
There has been all kinds of gush about the man who is behind.
And the man behind the cannon has been toasted, wined and dined.
There’s the man behind the musket, and the mail behind the fence-
And the man behind bis whiskers, and the man behind his rents; ’
And the man behind the plow beam, and the man behind the hoe;
And the man behind the ballot, and the man belli n<,l the dough;
And the man behind the counter, and the man behind the hill-
And the man behind the pestle, and the man behind the pill;
And the man behind the jimmy, and the man behind the bars;
And the Johnny that goes swooping on the stage behind the stars:
And the man behind the kisser, and the man behind the fist;
And the girl behind the man behind the gun is on the list;
And the man behind the bottle—and when they were short of men.
There was some small rhymester warbled off the man behind the pen.
But they missed one honest fellow, and I’m raising of a kick;
They don’t raise a mention of the man behind the pick.
Up the rugged mountain side a thousand feet lie takes his wav.
Or as far into the darkness from the cheering light of <!av;
He is shut out from the sunlight, in the glimmer of the lamps-
He is cut off from the sweet air in the sickly fumes and damps;
He must toil in cramped positions, he must take his life in haud,
For he works in deadly peril that few can understand.
But he does it all in silence, and he seldom makes a kick.
Which is why I sing the praises of the man behind the pick.
He unlocks the bolted portals of the mountains to the stores
Hid in Nature’s vast exchequer in her treasure house of ores.
He applies the key dynamic and the gates are backward rolled,
And the ancient rocks arc riven of their secret heart of gold.
Things of comfort and of beauty and of usefulness are mined
By this brave and quiet worker; he’s a friend of humankind.
Who, though trampled down and underpaid, toils on without a kick,
So I lift my hat in honor to the man behind the pick.
Burt A. Judd in Denver Post.
If Wickenburg does not become
the site of the Southern Smelting
Company’s 250-ton smelter, it will
not be because they have not made
themselves familiar with local con
ditions. James Edgar Black, the
president and general manager,
has personally made a very thoro
ugh and careful examination of the
prospects and mines around here,
and is at present on a ten days’
trip among the mines and pros
pects being opened up along the
Colorado and Bill Williams Fork.
Upon returning he will visit the
mines between here and Prescott,
and will then be ready to do some
close figuring upon the character
and grade of the ore bodies exam
ined, freight rates and the fuel and
water supply.
A 250-ton smelter is rather large
for a starter, but once in operation
we believe it would pay handsome
dividends. We have heard it in
timated that Mr. Black’s company
would not hesitate to put in a rail
road tapping the Colorado river
section should there be ore enough
in their estimation to warrant it.
Some of the old-timers do not seem
to take kindly to the idea of hav
ing a smelter located here, saying
there art? not enough men to fur
nish ore for a 250-ton plant. They
must be afraid of being compelled
to make a change in their habits
and go to work themselves, but we
think they are worrying needlessly.
We have the ore and if we get the
smelter there will be a surplus of
mineis waiting to go to work tak
ing out the mineral, and the old
timers who have been wise enough
to hold their prospects will then be
able to command good cash prices.
Every little while some news
paper in Arizona makes a “roar”
about the rest of the press “boom
ing” “wildcat” mines, say the No
gales Oasis. The last one to regis
ter a roar is the Globe Times; and
yet when a prospector goes into
Globe with a bouyant hope that
his prospect hole will turn out a
mine, he will receive a kindly no
tice in the Times, coupled with a
wish that his fond anticipations
may all prove true. And this is
as it should be. It is on the illu
sions of hope that the prospector
and country usually feed. With
very few exceptions mines do not
pay from the grass roots; some of
the best and biggest mines in the
country have been turned down
by experts as worthless, yet after
ward turning out millions; and
every mine that is paying today

| stage: So if newspapers waited for
j mines to come to a paying basis
: before giving them favorable in.cn
jtion, the mining columns in all the
; Arizbna journals would be seme
j what attenuated. We all know
j that not every prospect turns out a
|mine, but if doesn’t help to make
I good mines of prospects that may
■so turn out by deriding the antici
j pat ions of their owners, or keeping
1 silence anent their existence. En
courage the prospector in his hope,

mine is demonstrated to be of value ,

I are in the ground. Discourage

when success is within his grasp.

We love Arizona because it is
the only place in the republic
where you can assert your views
on politics and religion and still
hold your job.
For the benefit of our eastern
friends who desire to inform them
selves about Arizona, we will say
that we have been here for thirteen
years and haven’t been scalped but
We want it understood that we
are not making war 'on capital.
We have never had enough of that
commodity to tell whether it is
good or bad, but it always looks
good to us.
The millionaire in the east parts
with a dollar as if he were taking
tiie last sad look at a dying friend,
while the western man. flops his
last dollar down on the bar like a
stove lid.
The only fault we have to find
with our pension - system is that
officers can get, a hundred dollar
pension without any trouble, while
the poor, broken down private has
to work ten years to get eight dol

On the overland the other day
this story was told on the conduc
tor in charge of the train, and is
said to be true: Among his pas
sengers was a comely young color
ed woman and her infant. The
time was morning and the young
woman was engaged in giving the
youngster its breakfast without the.
assistance of artificial methods.
“Honey” didn’t seem to be hungry
and the mother was worried. “You
pore ’ittle thing,” she said, “don’t
cry; take your breakfas’.” But it
was of no use, pleading and expos
tulation availed nothing and the
mother waxed wroth. She exclaim
ed in a huff: “You ’ittle brack ras
cal, eat your breakfas’ or I’ll give
it to the conductor.” The passen
gers shouted and the emharassed
conductor retreated to the next
car.—Needles Eye.
