A MORMON LESSON.
Tho Industrial S stem of Utah AVns Founded
by a Genius,
From the Century for May.
On July 14th, 1847, President
Young and his fellow-pioneers passed
through tho picturesque outlet
of Emigration Canyon into tho valley
of the great Salt Lako. Utah
was then Mexican soil, and tho
leader believed ho could found
whatever character of institutions
should suit him and his people.
In tho bitter anti-Mormon crusades
of tho past it has been alleged
that "Brigham Young had
chains on men's souls." There is
no doubt that religious superstition,
rendered effective by tho marvelous
machinery of tho church,
was partly the source of the
leader's irrcsistiblo power with his
own people; but back of tho religious
suporstilion and tho church
organization stood tho brain of a
great and masterful man. Ho knew
that his power to bo enduring,
must rest upon something material
and tangible; and this something
ho descerned to bo prosperity of
tho peoplo themselves.
Brigham Young .was an organizer
of prosperity. This was the
real source of Ins strength. Tie
did not aim at mcro temporary
prosperity. On tho contrary he
fought everything tending to that
end, going to the length of actually
forbidding tho opening of tho
rich mines in the mountains near
at hand, because ho abhored tho
spirit of speculation. He choso
for tho corner stone of tho state tho
principle of industrialism; and that
the principle lies there j'ot, at the
baso of the noble edifice
fact, reared by human toil, and
held firmly in place by tho average
prosperity of all who had part in
its building. If the great architect,
and the superintendents and
foremen who surrounded him, enjoyed
a larger share of tho profits
than tho workmen, it is also true
that the humblest hewer of stone
ard carrier of mortar was paid in
proportion to the importance of
his labors. And what fair mind
can object to an industrial system
that yields these results.
So far as can bo learned, Brigham
Young had no previous knowledge
of irrigation when ho entered
the Salt Lake Valley. Ho quickly
realized that he had come to an
arid countiy, which would be hopeless
for agriculture unless
watered. With marvelous
preception. ho saw that irrigation
was not a drawback, but an advantage
of tho most important sort.
He realized that it meant freedom
alike from the dangers of tho
drouth and of the flood. Ho discovered
that having a rich soil and
amplo sunshine, and adding moisture
to tho construction of ditches,
it was actually an improvement
upon nature to be able to turn the
"rain" cither on or off with equal
facility. And, therefore, ho rightly
concluded that ho had found in
these conditions tho basis of tho
most certain worldly prosperity
and the most scientific agriculture.
It remained for a later genius to
remark: "Irrigation is not a substitute
for rain. Bain is a substitute
for irrigation and a mighty
poor ono." But if tho Mormon
leader did not say so ho evidently
felt it. Ho perceived, furthermore,
that irrigation was much moro
than an insuranco policy upon tho
crops. It brought all tho processes
of agriculture within the realm
of known facts, and that is science
It even rendered possiqlo the control
of tho size of vegetables, and
this became important many years
afterward, when the Mormon people
added a great sugar factory to
their industrial system; for it is
important to grow sugar beets of
about a standard size to got tho
best results. Moisturo is l'cquired
to give the beot a vigorous growth
at the beginning; but when it is
well started, weeks of uninterrupted
sunshine aro desirable m order
to develop tho saccharine qualities.
Much sunshine at tho wrong time
dries up tho crop, while much moisture
at the wrong timo produces a
beot pleasing to look upon, but unprofitable
at the factory.
Brigham Young also realized,
almost at tho first, that tho necessity
of careful irrigation largely increased
the labor upon an aero of
land; but ho found that this labor
was generously rewarded by tho
increased yield both in quantity
and quality. And from this fact
ho drew tho most important principle
of his commonwealth, which
was the division of land into small
holdings. Closely related to this
is the other twin factor in Mormon
prosperity tho diversification of
farm products to the last degree.
Natural conditions, oven where
there is tho most abundant and
well-distributed ruinfall, aro often
favorablo to tho production of only
a fow crops. But th'o Mormons realized
that tho skillful application
of water is just where and when
needed, and in just tho right quantity,
and by the very best method
rendered possible tho widest variety
of fruits, vegetables, and cereals
suited to tho temporato zone. Thus
Brigham Young taught tho peoplo
that no man should own moro land
tnan ho could cultivate to its highest
point by his own and his family's
labor, and that no man should
go to tho store for any article that
could bo profitably produced on
his own-small farm.

THE FARM.
Tho following on tho timo to cut
alfalfa is taken from the Annual
Beport of the Kansas State Board
of Agriculture:
At whatever stage it is cut, great
caro must bo used in curing. If
left to cure in the swath, tho leaves
fall readily, and aro lost, while the
whole plant is moro or less bleached.
As soon as partly dry rake
into small bunches, and leave to
cure. This will require from ono
to five days, aceoi ding to tho climate
and weather.
In 1893 tve rented a
piece of alfalfa, and divided it up
into six equal sections. Two of
these sections were cut beforo
bloom, two at full bloom, and two
when going out t bloom. The
first two scrias were cut three times,
and tho last but twice. In 1891
the experiment was repeated
Just before bloom tho average
for tho two years was 8,3.'J4.
At full bloom the average was
8,959.
"When going out of bloom tho
average was j,G08.
As will bo seen,- in 1893 there
was very little difference in tho
yields, while in 1891 there was
over 1 1-1 tpns more from that cut
at full bloom, and thcreTore cut
three times, than that cut past
bloom and cut but twice. So, we
may conclude that tho total crop
will remain tho same, regardless of
tho number of times cut.
The best timo to cut must be
answered by tho pounds of beef,
mutton, or butter fat, as the case
might be, produced from an acre
of ground
From a trial it appears that
tho carh' cutting is. much the best,
as nearly four times as much beef
was obtained from an aero cut early
as from an acre cut late, and about
twice as much as from an acre cut
at the medium stage.

Camp Arcadia.
In ancient Creese thero is an
island and mountainous country,
almost shut out from neighboring
states by a natural rampart, and
called Arcadia. From tho carlest
time of recorded Grecian history
Arcadia seems to have been inhabited
by the same raco of peoplo
which down to tho days of Boman
dominion, continued to be distinguished
from their neighbors by
great simplicity and inertness of
life. So beautiful was their mountain
homo, so delightful thoir
so charming thoir surroundings
that tho Arcadians were a contented
and satisfied people. Tho classic
name Arcadia has long been tho
synonym for a rural spot of peculiar
beauty. In tho Grahams' about
fifteen miles from Solomonville and
tho same distance from Safford,
thero nestles beneath tho shadows
of the eternal mountains, a summer
resort, for certain families in tho
valley, and it has been designated
Arcadia. No more charming,
picturesque, attractive and health
giving camping ground is to be
found in Arizona or the west
Two springs of water, pure, cool
and sparkling, as if distilled by
angelic hands in celestial
aro not tho least attractions
to the camp. Magcstio pines, standing
for ages, like faithful sentinels
pointing heavenward, afford abundant
shade, and add to tho
sublimity and inspiration of
tho surroundings. If the place had
been made to ordor, scarcely could
the handiwork of nature been excelled.
riacer Mines Uear Salt Lake.
Within the past four or five days
half a dozen men have staked off
500 acres of placer claims within
twelve miles of this city. They
havo not only set their stakes, but
they havo tho gold coarso gulch
gold and lots of it. For some
months past O. B. Durst, associated
with Dr. N. N". Buck, S. M. Ellis
and C. C.Boynolds, has been working
some good quartz claims in
Harkers canyon. On a recent trip
they found it. The attention of
Mr. Boynolds was attracted to
some glittering particles in the
sand of tho creek bed, and oncloso
examination ho astonished himself
and associates by picking out
of tho coarso dirt without washing
a small nuggot of gold worth about
fifteen cents. A third of a yard
was carefully measured out and
panned, and yielded 3 12, or a
rate of ?9 30 per yard. This too,
from surface prospects only, and
without reaching bedrock; in fact
the discovery is so recent that thoro
has been no time for any but the
most supeificial prospecting, and
no attempt has yet boon made to
go down to tho bedrock. After
such flattering returns from tho
surface, the hope can be reasonably
entertained that tho bedrock will
thow up as rich as any part of Bingham
channel, tho only other placer
channel in Utah. The discoverers
have been keeping tho
quiet in order to comploto their
locations and some idea of their
eonfidenco in tho find can be formed
when it is known that tho party
has already covered over500 acres

mostly discounted in tho recent rise

likely to cause a further sharp advance

DISCOVERED! BY A WOMAN.
A Gold Mine That If Ono ot the Itlchot
In the IUnck Hills.
One day during tho latter part of
last June, .William Franklin and his
(laughter, Mrs. Prank Stone, happened
to stroll up a gulch in Pennington county,
anil .topping to rest, Mrs. Stone
idly broke in two a small piece of rock,"
which in the break, upon examination,
showed some particles of gold. A little
digging, says a Chamberlain (S. 1).)
correspondent of the St. Paul Pioneer
Press, exposed more of the rock, which,
upon being panned, proved very rich.
Everybody in the vicinity, having-
nothing to do, visited tho spot, and for
pastime wcro allowed, to dig out some
of the rock and pan out the gold. As
every man in that vicinity was in bad
condition financially and without other
means of raising tho money for tho
proper celebration of the approaching
Pourth of July, quite an opening, waa
made and tho proceeds were devoted tr
that purpose.
Prom this little ineident dates the
discovery of gold in the Iloly Terror
mine, which from day to day causes
greater excitement in mining circles.
With five stamps the owner recently
pounded out $3,500 in gold in tea
hours. Much of the ore runs 5500 to
the ton. Persistent prospecting revealed
no other place where the vc'n
came to the surface save this one spot',
which has been walked over every day
for years. Mr. Franklin took in T. C.
Islair as partner and a shaft tvas begun,
the ore tnkcnonfcbeing treated in the
Keystone mill and returned value much
aliove the expense of sinkcg the bhaft.
When the shaft reached thedepth of
forty feet, developing a wcltal'sfined
vein, which .steadily improved ith
width and value as depth was
gained, the owners made 'an arran lenient
with .T. J Payel and Albert i!ha-bury
by which they agreed to ereit a
stamp mill on the property in consideration
of a half interest in tho nine.
A five-stamp mill with an
of ten stamps or more was jsiSly
built at a cost of about Cv,C00 and put
in operation three weeks ago. While
the mill was being built men were employed
to run drifts north and south
from the shaft at a depth of forty feet,
while sinking was pushed in tho shaft.
Most of the ore milled has been taken
from theso drifts. The vein consists of
marelously rich ore, averaging sixteen
incites on one, wall, with about two feet
of low grade ore filling the remainder
of the vein. The richness of this ore
streak must bo seen to be believed.
Nuggets of solid gold from one to two
pennyweights to five ounces in weight
are found snugly tucked away waiting
to be brought to light, while large
pieces of quartz are so bound with gold
that the parts hang together when
broken w ith a hummer.
The first clean-up w as made in the
new mill after a run of 30 hours. The
result was a retort weighing a little over
100 ounces, from 80 tons of ore as taken
from the mine. The second run of 'Z4
hours gave a retort w eighing 179 ounces,
ami the third run of 20 hours gave 303
ounces. These three retorts arc worth
?10,000, and were all produced by a five-stamp
mill and taken to tho Harney
Peak bank at Hill City for shipment inside
of one week from the start. The
shaft has now reached a depth of sixty
feet and shows a larger and richer body
of ore than ever. Parties who have
recently visited the mine report that iC
is probably the richest ever discovered -in
the Black Hills.
ABSURD STAGE DEATHS. .
Nature Outrageously Violated Instead of
Ilcln;? Shown n Mirror.
A French dramatic critic, with some
show of medical knowledge, represents
that nearly all nctors and actresses
outrageously violate nature in their
imitations of death, says the Baltimore
Gazette. He cites, in corroboration of
his charge, the customary theatrical
death of Camille, in the younger Dumas'
favorite emotional play of that-title.
According to the author, his
heroine is affected with pulmonary consumption,
and an incidental attack of
hemorrhage of the lungs extinguishes.
her life. Ihcre is absolutely nothing
dramatic to be made out of this mode
of dying, if fidelity to fact bo obeyed.
The gushing of a stream of blood from
tho mouth would bo realistic, but tho
imitation of such a phenomenon i
never made by actors, male or female-,
nor would any discreet manager tolerate
such a piece of stage business.
Again, the overwhelming suffocation
which produces the rapid death ia
Camille's case is never accompanied by
convulsions, such as her dying representatives
on the stage almost always
assume. In natural death from this
cause the sufferer simply collapses from
failure of the vital powers.
Theatrical poisoning scenes ure also
usually untrue to nature. It is popularly
believed that when a fatal dose of
laudanum or morphine Is swallowed
the victim immediately sinks into a
deathlike sleep, as is commonly seen on
tho stage, whereas the flrst effect of
this poison taken in like quantity Is invariably
to excite and enliven. Nor lathe
mode of dying after the hackneyed
cardiac stage stab in confoimity witl
the laws of nature. The actor simply
falls at full length or in a heap, whereas
the everyday member of society
gives a spring when tho heart is struek
befoie entering eternity by this unhappy
gate. Even the modern Othello
has not inherited enough of Shakespeare's
w onderful fidelity to truth to
die natuially after a stab through the
heart.
Elephant Nurses.
The women of Siam intrust their
children to the care of elephant nurses,
and it is Niid the trust is never betrayed.
The elephant, not being susceptible
to the charms of the sauntering
policeman nor the social claims of
his friends and relations, is consequent1
ly able to devote its entire attention to
its charge. The babies play about the
huge feet of the elephants, who are
very careful never to hurt the little
creatures. And if danger threatens the
ftigacious animal curls the child gently
lip in its trunk and swings it up out of
harm's way upon its own back.
