This destruction was wanton and un

The beginning of the trial of Dillon

and Timothv Harrington, member of

with blood flowing from a scalp wound

Both defendants objected to going to

their objections were overruled. Then

Arizona is making astonishing strides
forward as an agricultural region. She
is able to market ripe fruit several weeks
ahead of California, and the one-time
dtserta are, under the Influence of Irri
gation, fast changing Into fruitful Vino-
yards, orchards and grain fields. Her
cattle Industry, too, has suddenly as
sumed surprising proportions since the
nearly total suppression of raids by the
Apaches, and In the past two winters
great numbers of Arizona cattle have
been marketed In San Francisco. With
the seeking ot a market and safety from
Indian robbers comes naturally a desire
for an Improvement ot breed over the
broadhorned wild cattle ot the Am i lcan
plains, A nd the purchase of a carload of
shorthorns at the California Btato fair by
George W. Norton of the Mohawk valley
Is a sign ot the territory's progress. It
is a fact tor that territory to be proud
of that among the animals purchased by
Mr. Norton Is what la supjiosed to be
the best-bred bull In the United States,
Earl of Aberdeen, 61.3. The placing ot
such leaven as this among the herds ot
Arizona will In a very few years have
Its effect In the material Improvement ot
the quallt) of the beef seeking a market
from there, tor the shorthorn is the Ideal
The Importance of having more ware
house room cannot be estimated. Every
year the same cry goes up after har
vest from the great wheat-growing
plains ot California that cars cannot be
obtained to move the crop, and nearly
every year large quantities ot grain are
spoiled because rains come before trans
portation can be secured. It Is like the
frequent losses ot stock from severe
weather in winter on the ranges. The
grain lost in five years would pay for
housing all the grain that needs hous
ing In California for a generation, and
the cattle lost last winter would pay for
Bheds and feed sufficient to carry all
the exposed herds through every se
vere storm for fifty years.
The Farmers Alliance Is accomplish

dozen for eggs and similar prices for
other articles, a little nearer to the San
Francisco consumer, who pays from 15
to 50 cents a pound for the same
fruit and 30 cent a dozen for the same

Boston and Springfield, in tho now

Resplnl claims that the reason the

Switzerland, did not call a constitutional
election within a month alter receiving

the government claimed the right to

that to call the election.
The Liberals claimed that the month
was allowed for such investigation, and
that the government .would, under its
construction, be able to postpone action
indefinitely, hence the revolt.
The nutritive value of brewers' grains
Is rather more than that of green clover.
One hundred pounds ot green clover
contains about SJ ; pounds of albuminoids.
while 100 pounds ot brewers' grains con
tain less than 5 pounds. The value of
all foods Is measured largely y tne
amount ot albuminoids, as they are tho
source of muscle and force, while the
carbohydrates supply heat to the system.
Could brewers' grains be freed from
their water and Bold at 5 cents tor the
dry matter In a bushel, they would be
cheap food for farmers living at a dis
tance from the brewery; but the cost or
hauling nearly four pounds of water
with each pound ot dry matter makes
them an economical Iood to those only
who live comparatively near to the source
of production. Brewers' grains affect the
quality ot milk. It fed whon much Bour
the milk is unfit for Infanta. For adult
consumption and for cookery It Is less
Bran la one ot the most economical
grain foods In the market. The albumin
oids In bran cost about 8 cents a pound
against 12, cents in corn meal at pres
ent prices ($1 14 a hundred pounds lor
corn meal and $18 60 a ton for bran.
In brewers' grains the cost Is 2 cents,
with cost of carting to be added for both
Hr mnttar and water. Wheat bran Is a
safe food, there being loss risk from
overfeeding. Its material value Is also
greater than that ot corn nioal.
Gluten msal Is richer in albuminoids
than bran, and the manure from its
feeding Is also more valuable. Dr.
Goessmann makes the manunni value
$15 a ton, against $14 77 for bran, $10 63
for middlings and $7 85 for corn meal.
But gluten meal, like cottonseed meal
and other highly nitrogenous foods,
must le fed with much care. A. W.
