Wall Street Is the

The two billion dollars which are deposited in its
Lank? and trust companies arc in reality the DEPOS
ITS OF TTTK COUNTRY, anl bandrcb of millions directly
represent the balances of interior banks in Now York institutions.
The frreat ojierations which are carried on in its stock exchanges are
in a large part CONDUCTED BY THE PEOPLE of the country.
Hie Stock Exchange is really a national institution. Many of its mem
bers are citizens of Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, St. Loui gnl other
cities, and of the 590 firms represented on its floor 314 maintain 527
branch offices in twenty-nine of the forty-six states of the Union.
In so far as Wall street has fallen short in the pcrfonnanees of it
duty it has been for the most part in FAILING TO RECOGNIZE
It ha-s acted as if it owned the money intrusted to its care instead
of being merely the trustee of it. It3 financial leadership in too many
cases degenerated into financial bossism. Moreover, it is al-o fair crit
icism to 6ay that Wall street in many ways has been PROVINCIAL
in its outlook. There are scores of Wall 6troet men who know the
earnings of the railroads and who have at their tongues' ends the sta
tistics of wheat and iron productions and yet who have never crossed
the Allegheny mountains or seen the Mississippi river. Admitting all
this, however, Wall street has nevertheless DONE THE WORK
which the country has cut out for it.

For Instance, at I'hoenix. Arizona,

here today, solved it to their natls

They learned that the old theory of

Mr. Dunlop, of tlK Salt River Vallev. j

and has forsaken the free erasing or

bought a burnt of (iOtlsheep which will
lie kept exclusively on eighty acres of
his alfalfa farm. Without auv refer
ence to the fact that advancing civ
llzailon and improved niethoits in
dry farming and the storageMf water

Mr. Dunlop advances many points
In fa vor of raising under wire over

place the ten per cent loas among the
lambs from the coyotes which the
open-range sheepman figures on, is
avoided entirely with a woven wire
fence. There la a saving of at least
two pounds of wool to the sheep each
year, for this amount must usually
be thrown away because tif the dirt
and cockle burrs gathered In the open
range, to this may tie added the
wards of $50anacre from thatsource.
The change probably will not dl
mioish the flocks here, but Instead
will Improve the quality of both wool
and mutton and largely increase the
peoduction. And every settler will
in this way make eheep one of his
sources of profit, aa it does not take
loug to get a start of alfalfa, ami
with cure flocks will rauidly increase.
Viewed from this standpoint tho
cutting up of the great ranges, with
limited feed, and sowing same toalf-
ulfa, will make Lake couuty more
famous as a sheep producing section
In the future thin has tieen the case
