The advance agent of prosperity eon

Bulletin No. 20 of the Arizona Ex
; pe-riment Station is just ready for dis
tribution. It is a bulletin of some 40
pages, entitled “Arizona Weather” and
treats more fully perhaps in a scienti
fic way of the climate of Arizona than
any other publication yßt issued. In
j addition to the exhaustive tables upon
• the weather of Arizona there are full
notes in explanation of the tables and
comments upon temperature, hurnidi
i ty, etc., showing thßir relation to each
| other and how they affect the comfort
;of the residents of Arizona. It will be
I of value not only to those interested in
gene:;f4 meteorology but to all those j
: who are seeking a mild climate. It may
| be secured by applying to Experiment
Station, Tucson, Arizona.
Secretary Lamont has issued an offi- |
cial order directing the attendance of
I the cadets or the West Point Military
I Academy at the inauguration of Presi
dent McKinley, and a similar order to
j the naval cadets at Annapolis is ex-
I peeled from Secretary Herbert. These
cadets have not taken part in an inau
gural parade since President Grant's
second inauguration; when their expo-1
sure without overcoats to the terrible
! weather of that day resulted in several
I deaths and much sickness.
Since relative humidity is a function
! of temperature, it does not constitute
I a means of comparison as to the quan
tities of moisture actually present in
i the air at different places and times.
I However, it is not the absolute humid

1 which makes the extremes of tempera-
I ture most annoying to animal life.
; Statements of relative humidity, there
\ fore, in connection with those of tem
; perature, give information concerning
the comparative discomfort of life in
different climates.—Bulletin 20, Ari

Eugene V. Debs has left the people’s
party to become an out and out social-
I ist. In a letter in the Railway Times,
I he states he supported Bryan and free
silver, not because he regarded free
coinage of silver as a panacea for na
; tioual ills, but because it furnished a
‘rallying cry and common ground
against trusts, syndicates and corpora
tions, and once united, they could
press forward against industrial slav
ery. He says 80 per cent of the organ
ized wage-earners voted for Bryan, and
the result of the election is due tn the
fact that unorganized workers over-
I whelmingly outnumbered those who
; were organized, and who had been edu
; cated and drilled in the tactics of the
! enemy and could noc be coerced from
voting their own convictions. The bal
lot, however much it has been eulogized
has been beaten to earth by boodle, and
it cannot be relied upon to execute the
will of the people while they are in iu
' dustrial bondage. He believes there is
away out of the “labyrinth of tortuous
blinding and confus'ag ■ aze.” Lead
ers of the socialist army have throv-. n
open the door of hope to the toiling
masses. Speaking fur himself, he says
he is a socialist because he has become
convinced that the competitive system
is utterly cannibalistic. The issue is
socialism versus capitalism. He con
fesses no hope for the toiling masses
except by the pathway mapped out by
j the socialist. The election is really a
j flaming symbol of victory, because it
aroused the mind forces of millions of
Here is the kind an obituary that
a Georgia editor pu : up for a poor man:
“Poor Jidi clung b < earthly garments

A party of capitalists were taken over
the projected raiifoad line between

of the Irrigation Congress, by W- A.

A Printer’s Christmas.
Tho following is tl9 way the printers
of Phoenix spent Christmas, according
to the versatile pen of C. N. Stark, the
genius of the Phoenix Republican:
Asked how he expected to spend
j Christm one of the fraternity that
( depends on the prhit shop to “space

! happy memory of childhood and the
- hope of immortality, said:
“We will pass the annual feast day I
as usual in the prin iug office ‘chapel - j
in fasting and in pn per. For the time
being we will withdraw the ‘profession
al proboscis’from the proverbial ‘space
box,’ wash our dilapidated ‘forms’ in a
lull of peperntrat: - b«n»r prove our
•galleys’ and punctuate our unfortunate
conditions with secular language, and
as the foreman yells ‘3o!’ there will be
a mad rush for the contents of the
‘paste pot.’ Those who get left will,
work the free lunches to a finish, strike
the business ollice for a loan on the
next ‘string’ or a letter of credit at the
chop house and spend the evening in
Poverty flat bv a one-candle power

Origin of Santa Claus.
As for Santa Claus himself, he has
surely a guarantee of immortality, if
ever a creation of human fancy and
I domestic affection did so. He has a
history—much of it legendary, we must
confess —which of itself makes him a ‘
noted character. He seems to be a I
; composite personality, uniting the Boy 1
Bishop of old times in England, the j
Ohrist-kindlein of Germany—the Christ J
child who came down the chimney on ■
Christinas eve to fill the children's j
stockings-and the St. Nicholas of the - !
Fourth century, who, having inherited
a large fortune, devoted it to the re
lieving of distress, and sometimes the
necessities of those who in some dis
tress of evil fortune became embar
rassed, or reduced from wealth to pov
erty. The reindeerand the sleigh,must,
be of a far northern origin. Thus the
orient, Britain, Germany and Scandi
navia, appear to have each a hand in
creating a personality which is so dear
to us all because it represents what is
most simple, kindly and beneficent in
: the more intimate relations of human i
life.—Chicago Standard.
