The Middlewest, Northwest and the South are all short of cattle. Already the stock have been shipped from Missouri river markets to the Northwest. The cotton growers in the South will want cattle. Where the supply is to come from is a big problem. If cattlemen had not been pun ished so badly the past three years they would be clamoring for . cattle and prices would be sustained in keeping with the shortage. These are difficult times but cattle seem to be about the best prospect for increasing in value of all the agricultural products. During the last few weeks a distinct upward trend has been noted on the market for all sorts of cattle. A. H. Department, University of Ari zona. KITE BALLOON LOST Tucson, April. Lost for two weH:s, a 96 foot kite balloon is floating with the winds some where in Southern Arizona, record intr to Lieut. George R Fond, who arrived here at 1 o'clock Tuesday, on search lor the escaped craft. Ten days ago there broke from the observation tower of a battleship, anchored in the San Diego harbor, this large balloon in use for target ranging, and floated Eistward with the winds over California, Mexico and Arizona. The craft carries a heavy iron cable 600 feet in length, .hanging from the bottom and dragging over ground, houses, telephone and electric wires. Cables of every sort are pulled do?rn in its wake and roofs damaged. The balloon, leaving San Diego, was seen passing over the Imperial valley, over villages near Yuma, and grounded through a night near a mine northwest of Yuma, beiug carri ed away bv a wind on the follow irg day. Being unmanned, there is no I means of control and Lieutenant Pond and observer A. W. MacDougal, aviator pilot ing the heavy navy airplane, in which they are traveling fear that serious damage may be dene before the great bag can be brought to a stop. The searchers have, since last Friday, traveled 3,000 miles over California and Arizona via air plane, seeking clues as to the whereabouts of the lost kite. Although they have at various times been upon its trail, they have, due to veeriog winds, lost it repeatedly and have never sighted it. Any persons catching sight pf the gas craft are urged to immediatily notify the cham ber of commerce of its where about, in. the hope that it may be recaptured before serious damage results. SHUT OFF THE WHISTLE. The chief trouble with most of us in this country is that we are sitting around waiting for pros perity to "begin." Samuel M. Vawclain, presi dent of the Baldwin Locomotive Company, says: "I am afraid of the establishment of the debat ing society as a business institu tion. Too much ad vising results in finding the various ways that things cannot be done." Collier's' says: ''Prosperity will not be started by salesmen on the road who lose their own nerve, to silly rumor, and travel on through the country leaving behind them a wake of gloom, depression and lost confidence. "National prosperity is but the sum total of a lot of Jittle indivi dual prosperities. As individu als we have weathered deflation without one of our old time Am erican panics. But we have not yet realized, as individuals, that we will have to think prosperity and work for prosperity if we want prosperity." If we want prosperity we can not be like Abraham Lincoln's "little trifling steamboat that used to go puffing about on the Sangamon River, with a seven foot whistle on a five foot boiler, so that every time the whistle blew, the boat stopped." FAMOUS APACHE TRAIL. Phoenix. The Maricopa coun ty high way commission together with representatives of the local chamber of commerce and the state highway department took up this afternoon the matter or repairing the Apache Trail. The Apache Trail is consider ed, so it was said, one of the best advertising attributes of the state. As such it is pro posed to keep it in such condi tion as will justify the various railroads and touring bureaus to advertise the trail as one of the scenic wonders of the world. While it is true that certain money appropriated uuder the terms of the omnibus bill will go toward repairing the trail, the meeting this afternoon sought to bring about the cooperation of the county and the state in ob taiuing additional county and federal aid. ARIZONA LIVESTOCK LAWS. Phoenix. "Arizona has one of the best, if not the best, live stock laws in the country," de clared J. H. Avery, cattle loan expert of Tucson, who was a caller yesterday at the office of the s'ate livestock sanitary board. Avery was formerly chairman of the Texas livestock commission, and told of some of the difficulties which were con fronted there owiDg to an in effective law against cattle rust ling. Cattle stealing is made difficult in Arizona, not only by its dras tic la tt, but by its very excel lent brand book, according to Mr. AvDry. This shows every registered brand in use, and by its use, it is easy enough to trace the ownership of strays. The visitor congratulated Secretary El. W. Stephens, for the splea did ngementof these brands, and their classification and clar ity, ail of which has been a big aid to the cattle owners in pro tacting their property from theft MINERS ASK ASSISTANCE. Bisbee. To arrange if possi ble to give employment to un employed men of the Warren district and other mining camps of the country, committees of the Copper Qoeen companies met last night with a committee of the Warren District Commercial Club and appointed a joint com mittee to draw up a resolution asking the governor to arrange for the immediate expenditure of money alloted to Cochise county for road work under the omnibus bill and of $57,000 that the state owes the county on account of money borrowed. Under the omnibus bill the county is allotted $80,000 for road work, which, with the $57,000 owed to the county by the state, would make $137,000 available for the employment of men on road work. The com mittees estimated that this sum would be sufficient to take care of the unemployed men of the district for many months to come. A SCREW LOOSE SOMEWHERE. The Denver Mining Record says: "The resources of the United States should not be frittered away to add to the prosperity and wealth of foreign countries. The other world powers recog nize the extent and value of our oil resources, and while protect ing their supplies at home are aggressively developing and de pleting ours. "It would appear that there is a powerful but invisible force at work to keep this country from protecting its own interests for fear that we might tread on the toes of some foreign nation." Let us treat foreign powers fairly but let our law makers awaken to the fact that pros perity in this nation depends on operating industries and that it is their business to see that from a legislative- standpoint at least our industries are given full government cooperation and pro tection at home and abroad. STAY WITH THE SHIP. The lumber and logging in dustry, the largest employer of labor in the west, has been strug gling against almost impossible odds of depressed conditions, re stricted construction activity due to high labor and general mate rial costs and increased freight rates which cut off a large part of its business in competitive eastern markets, in spite of the fact that lumber is down practi cally to old prices. The skys are begiuning to clear slowly, however, as labor sees necessity of receding from wartime demands and cooperat ing with industry. There are indications of a sub stantial re adjustment in railroad operating expenses and regula tions with consequent reductions in other costs right down the line. Labor, industry and transpor tation must pull together in or der that all may eat. MEXICO MAY PAY DEBT. Mexico City. Honest efforts are bsing made todevise arrange ments for immediate payment of interest on Mexico's foreign debt and to that end representatives of foreign banking houses have been asked to come to Mexico to offer advice and suggestions, President Obregon told a gather ing of newspaper correspondents here today. It is believed these banking house representatives will arrive here within two or three weeks and that extended conferences will be held with the president participating per sonally. President Obregon reiterated previous statements that he strongly favored a payment, no matter what the amount, as an evidence of good faith. El Uui rcral says that Speyer and company, of New York, who are said to hold 70,000,000 pesos in Mexican bonds, have reached a virtual agreement with the gov ernment, but will be represented at the conference of bankers to lend aid in making a final settlement with other creditors. Apparently President Obregon has assumed" personal supervi sion of this phase of the financial situation. WHY THE EDITOR LEFT TOWN In a recent letter to The Breeder's Gazette, Mr. F. M. Wood, of Lancaster County, Nebraska, told how a Nebraska printer got an auction sale and an account of a wedding mixed to gether. The resulting article, wrote Mr. Woods, read like this: "Married at the home of the brids township one mile north and two miles east of Mr. and Mrs. John Jones highly respect ed residents of Thursday, Jan. 27, Miss Ethel Drinkwater by the Rev. 18 bead of Shorthorns consisting of four bridesmaids dressed in pale blue and carrying calves by their sides. They had tulle veils . . . sired by the noted Kentucky jack Bombina 3d. Also forty six head of hogs, including the groom's father from North Dakota, where he is engaged in missionary work, and is immuned by the double process. These shotes are thrift, and all relatives of the bride and groom. They all gathered in the spacious dining room after the ceremony, and partook of 300 bushels of seed oats, 1,000 bush els of corn, 10 large sacks of millet and alfalfa. The bride is the youngest daughter of one trusty incubator, c.picity 600 eggs, one J no. Deere five room cottage and a trip to Omaha, after which they draw 10 per cent interest from date. Free lunch at noon." PUSHING ROAD WORK. The editor of the Patagonia motored up to Elgin a few days since and was both surprised and gratified to note the rapidity with which the contractors are pushing the road work between Sonoita and Elgin. There are good sized forces of men, teams and tractors strung out between these two towns, and the work that is being done is of a most permanent nature. There is a large camp a few miles east of Sonoita and we understand a camp is to be established near Patagonia within the next few days. Patagonian. Those who are skeptical re garding good roads in this county should take a day off and visit the State Highway Camp just out of Sonoita. Mr. Jenkins is in charge of this work and the county is very fortunate in hav ing a man of his calibre building their main highway. Also visit the camp of Herb McCutchan and see what a local contractor is doing upon one of the most, if not the most difficult road con struction in the couuty. Mr. McCutchan is building a line road and is proving his ability as an A No One road building. Patagonian . Hoi brook Motjui and Apache Indian reservation opened for mally for location of asbestos, magnesite, gypsum and limestone.
