From the reports of Bishops of tho various wards throughout tho stake, it appears that there is a very good prospect of abundant crop this year. That tho amount of land put into small grain is greater than in any previous year. That tho general health of the people throughout tho valley is very good, tho only form of sickness prevailing to any oxtent being a very light form of diptheria at Layton, and that has almost died out. That there is going to bo a strong effort mado in tho near futuro to build a wagon road across the mo.untains, north of tho river, to tho fine lands of tho Mogollon mountains.

As near as can be learned, they wero obliged to camp on this side of tho river about five days on account of high water, at the end of which timo Mr. Leo built a raft and attempted to cross. Ho loaded their effects onto tho raft and crossed over in safety, then crossed back for his wife and commonced the return trip.

HIRUM WEECH NARROWLY ESCAPES BEING BURNED TO DEATH. AJCoal Oil Lamp Exploding; in Her Hands the Cause of the Accident. Last Sunday evening Mrs. Hirum Weech, of Pima, narrowly escaped a horriblo death by fire, and but for tho timely assistance of Mr. C. N. Birdno tho beautiful Weech residence would now be a heap of black ruins. It sqems that in tho early part of tho cvonihg,Mrs. Weech,, as is her custom, had placed a lighted lamp in her bed room, on tho second floor, and then went down stairs to attend1 to somo household duties. kIn about an hour she returned to tho room above mentioned Judgo of her surprise, when, on opening tho door sho discovered that in somo unaccountable way, in her absence, a holo had been broken in tho lamp bowl, tho oil had become ignited and was throwing a flood of flamo almost to tho ceiling. Mrs. Weech screamed for help and at tho same timo rushed, into tho room, snatched up tho burning and dangerous lamp and started for tho hall door leading onto tho front poarch. Sho had not taken more than thrco steps toward tho door when tho lamp exploded, covering her from her waist down with burning oil, and throwing the fiery liquid over tho carpets and bed. Sho had presence of mind enough, however, to throw the lamp from her, endeavoring to throw it to tho ground, but instead of that it landed on tho poarch which also began to blaze. Mr. Charles N. Birdno, who was in the parlor down stairs, heard Mrs. Weech call for help whon sho first discovered the burning lamp, rushed to her assistance and mot her in the bed room door envelop ed in flames. Ho secured a piece of carpet and quickly smothered out the flames which, in a few minutes more would undoubtedly havo caused her death. Mr. Birdno next turned his attention to the burning carpets, bed and poarch, and with tho assistance of Mrs. Weech was not long in smothering out the flames. Mrs. Wccch was not dangerously burned, but her face and arms were quite badly scorched. This should bo a warning to all not to leave lamps burning in unoccupied rooms or during sleeping hours.

Through the intricate, nmiy dance together; Llke mimic armies our lines were mectintr.

The fold of your whlto arm sent a thrill, nom neart to Drain as we genny guaea Like leaves on the wave, of that waltz -quadrille, Parted, met and again divided; You drifted one wav and I the other. Then suddenly turning and facing each other, men on in me Diune cnasse Then airly back to our places swaying. While every beat of the music seemed saying That you were going away.

Celebrates His 74th Birthday. President Layton celebrated his 74th birthday last Saturday at his rcsidonco in Thatcher. All of tho family and quito a number of friends were invited, and at 2 p. m. sat down to a most sumptuous dinner. Tho afternoon and evening was passed off in quiet games, songs, recitations, etc. Mr. Layton, notwithstanding his 74 summers is still halo and hearty, and to all appearance is good for a number of years yet. His hlo has been an oventful one, he being one of tho few survivors of the Illinois volunteers, known as the Mormon battalion, in the Mexican war, and one of ths men who hoisted tho first stars and strips in Tucson. Mr. Layton says that in tho last 50 years of his life ho has averaged building either a dwelling house, a store house or a barn for each year, something' that few men caulsayThe G" "an manv rotv COUNTY, ARIZONA, MARCH 16, 1895. CAUSE OF DEPRESSION. Comprehensive Majority Iteport of the Special Coinmittlee on the Agricultural Di litres. The majority of tho special of tho house appointed to in quire into tho causes of tho prevailing agricultural depression has pre pared a report in which it says: "'It is'.unncce.'.siirv for the com miteoto enter iito or dwell upon the fact that agriculturo is depressed in every branch of this most important industry; that tho values of land and iarm surround ings unless under exceptionally raro cumimuiis, iuivu ueprecjuica as tho purchasing power of the dollar has increased. But Whilo tho values of tho property owned by tho American farmers have in thirty years from nearly ono half of tho total wealth in I860 to less than ono fourth in 1890, of which 30 per cent is now under mortgage; taxes havo steadily increased and debts now require four times tho labor to bo paid than was then required. Tho purchasing capacity of tho dollar to secure tho farmer's land and his produce has increased four fold, whilo tho power to pay his taxes and debts havo remained at a standstill. In 1873 wheat sold from $1.55 to 82.25 a bushel, according to ford's almanac. In Now York in 1894 it sold at 50 cents. Class legislation of the worst character encumbers tho statute books and has been carried on to tho detriment of agriculture and its dopendent industries for thirty years, culminating in tho crime of tho age,the demonetization of silver In 1873. "Tho demonetization of silvor was a bold stroke in tho intrest of cap ital that has reduced tho valuo of every product in tho world. This is conclusively proven by tho fact that just as silver has depreciated in like proportion havo all other values fallen in tho scale. Silvor bullion to-day has tho capacity to purchaso as much wheat, cotton, pork and corn and land, and every other commodity that it over had, therefore tho depreciation of the white metal simply means tho depreciation of every nrticlo under the sun with one single oxception, the gold of tho shylock." Tho tariff system of taxation is not only unequal, but as for tho past thirty years administered in this country, is most unjust to tho consumer and has built up trusts, combines and gigantic corporations that havo not only amassed immonso wealth at tho expense of tho people but havo assumed to control and direct legislation so as to perpotuato their power and gratify their greed. Tho tariff bears with undue weight upon the producer of agricultural staples,as it forces him not only to buy in the dearest markot, but to sell in open competition with tho world's lowest prices. REMEDIES SliaOESTED. Agricultural depression is still further augmented by the sale of futures on our stock exchanges where tho grain gamblers grow rich by farming tho telegraph wire and selling wind, whilo honest and industrious toilers on tho prairies reap tho whirlwind. Food adulterations add millions annually to the farmer's losses and compel him to meet in competition tho thief. To theso might bo added other causes, but tho principal ones to which agricultural depression and stagnation in trade are duo havo been cited. Tho remedy lies in remedial legislation, and until that is secured relief will not como permanently. To secure relief wo suggest: First-That silver should bo at tho ratio of 1G to 1. Second-That so long as tho pro-sent unjust and unequal system of protection continues agriculture should receive its just proportion, and as -this cannot bo secured by a protective tariff, that a bounty on exported agricultural'staplcs should bo allowed similar to that on fish in 1815, and for which John C. Calhoun voted. Third-That gambling in futures should be prevnted by law. Fourth-That a national pure food law should be enacted. A minority report is being prepared. BIRTHS.
