Mr. Allen Becson, who took a trip to
Alabama a few weeks ago in the interests
fit' an Iowa capitalist, has returned home.

highest terms of the country and the
agreeable climate. lie says he has re
turn! d to a warmer climate by coining

papers of that city made the assertion
that decree had been unprecedented
In the history of the place. Mont
gomery is a city of about 40,000 and has
six railroads running into it. They
have the best water privileges, the city
being suplied with about six artesian
wells of about four hundred feet in
depth, and around that vicinity fine,
streams run over the land, fed by springs.
All kinds of fruits, such as peaches,
pears, lis, pomme-granite, and
oranges grow ia great abundance.
The best land can be bought in that
countryfor not more than $10 per acre
and the Southerners offer ever' encour
agement to northern capitalists who will
go in among them. They are not am
bitious people and care little about work
ing at all. The soil with what little cul
tivation it receives, at their hands, which
5 yery little, yields an average of about
4 bushels of corn to'theacre. Plows they
use do not cut much more than an inch
deep and grain is allowed to grow with
but little cultivation. Their corn is
planted in February. Mr. Beeson says n
better opening for an- young man could
be found than there, as all young men
have been moving west, and the country
is filled up with them, but it is not so in
the south. Everything is more suitable
and the climate is as good, if not better.
The best timber land in the country, yel
I jw pine, can be purchased for l:2o per
acre. The plations are divided into large
tracts of not less than 700 acres and some
several times as large. Mr. Johnson
the Io ,va capitalist, has purchased 4,oG0
acres there, for which Mr. Becson was
employed to go and examine the title.
He is making arrangements with the "Wa
bash railroad to run an excursion there
this summer, the fare to be at the rate of
one cent per mile. Mr. B. visited Xew
Orleans, Nashville and other southern
cities during his stay.
About six o'clock this morning
some say a few; minutes before, and oth
ers a few minutes after Tucson exper
ienced a sh..Tp earthquake. It was of
but momentary duration, but it shook
things up lively while it was about it.
The motion seemed to be from south to
north. Some people ran out of their
houses, and others were too bewildered
to get out. In Mrs. Driscoll's house on
south Meyer street, it shook the plaster
down and frightened the inmates into
the streets. In the Welisch block it had
the appearance of something giving the
building three or four sharp jerks, while
at the same time it seemed as if some one
was jumping on the roof overhead. At
Mr. Mansfeld's house on Stone avenue,
the same noise that accompanied the big
earthquake of a couple of years back,
was pl iinly heard. The inmates of the
Fashion saloon in the Pearson olock lost
no time in getting out, but the shaking
up was generally felt, and everybody lias
experiences to relate. Arizona Citizen

Calloway is looking after the cause of

passing in judgment upon the motjveuof

i somewhat extended exiiericnce with
men, and au occasional woman, convinces
mo that thorn is as great a difference iu the
rm-tliods of rKd men who desiro to help
ineir leiiows as mere is In-tween them and
had men who strive constantly to hurt their
brothers and Meters. Every man has UU
own way. It is fo.ly for writers in tho i.ress
J for ministers in the puli.it, fur public teaeh-
eis in any rorum whatever, to insist upon it

I look at doctors with wonder and awe. In
my judgment a doctor needs, first of ull,
moral courage. It requires no very great
degree of pbysieial courage to stand before a
aian whoso inflamed eye betokens the rago
t. hut roars within him, beeausc, being a man,
you naturally have no fear for another man
physically. The ;.suo of tho fight must to
one of t wo ways. You whip 1dm or he whips
you, and, of course, you are prepared to take
the chance. But to go into u sick room,
where, in tlio first place, your senses are of
fended, you see unpleasant pictures, you hoir
discordant sounds, above all you detect of
fensive t-dj-:s. .oil are brounht in niiitrn
with a condition of things ubuormal, from
which you naturally turn as from any other
nuisance that required moral courage. That
of itself would determine n;e. I could livi
more endure the close tonf'iiit.iiiciits cf a sick
chamber, with its ncvcsaivy annoyance to
every sense, and most especially to the sensi

I hayfe c.-iiio to the conclusion Uat intelli
gent men do k ho v thcjUSejYOS, VYifc
it is to, :;mgi!it fu
anient that a well
iuiud doesn't fully, accurately, ab
solutely estimate himself. Could you con
vince Bismarck, as he sits in the calm seclu
sion of his innermost study, smoking the fra
grant pipo of happy rellection, that he has
not been a successful diplomat?
You're a merchant. Continuity of en
deavor has brought you, step by step, from
tho humility of an office sweeping $2 a week
lad to tho proud pre-eminence of a merchant
prince, with au income, net, of $1,000,000 a
year. Your credit stands regal in the marts
of commerce, your name is a synonym for
6olidity throughout tho world of trade and
dicker. Could anybody convince you that
you are a failure? Don't you know, as you
look at your bald head and wriukled face and
shriveled neck iu the too faithful mirror that,
though you are decaying physically, -ou are
a superb success along the line of mercantile
endeavor and commercial enterprise?
Of coarse, you know yourself. And pre
cisely as ou, a success, know yourself to 09
a success, so you, a lizzie, know yourself to
be a lizzie. Every man is a type. Why it i
a fact that we are all, in certain lines, unique,
peculiar, individual, it ia equally a fact that
wo all represent great bodies of similarly
organized, identically developed men or wo
men, here, there and everywhere. Some
people say, "Oh, he's a good hearted fellow,
he will give his last dollar."
Well, yes, but is it a good heart that gives
its last dollar, but would hesitate, even if he
didn't refuse to give literal, personal, indi
vidual, hand to hand, heart to heart, body to
body comforts? Recurring to tho doctor
thought a moment, I don't believe it would
be a physical possibility for mo, who have
pretty good control of my physical organs at
that, to make a practice of visiting hospitals,
of coming into personal contact with disease,
of upsetting my stomach by annoying my
nose. It is one thing to draw a check ami
send it by mail or messenger; it is another
thing to go about doing good, visiting the
sick, helping the friendless, uplifting tho be
reaved, attending to the literal, physical
necessities of poor, dirty (levels in the very
gutters of humanity.
Talk about giving money as an evidence
of generosity. That's all nonsense. It all
depends upon circumstances. "What sort of
generosity is it when you have 100 in -our
pocket and somebody comes along c sking jou
for live or ten, that you give it, without re
gard to anything under heavens except the
particular 100 you have in your pocket ?
That f 100 may belong to some creditor. You
may owe that money to some man to whom
its payment would be a positive relief. You
don't think of equities, you don't care the
turn of your hand for your creditor; you let
Browne walk all over creation rather than
deprive yourself of a moment's comfort,
peace, happiness, luxury; yet because you
give- hvo or ten dollars to some poor devil
who happens to want it, you are credited the
world around as being a generous hearted,
free handed man, who would give his last
dollar to help a creature iu distress.
Y ou buy a paper of a newsboy. Y"ou hand
him a, dime. Rather than be bothered to
wait for the change, or to havo his dirty
little fists pawing over a handful of coin to
find the change, you say, "Oh, keep it. Never
mind that." "Why do you say iti Are you
touched with pity for tho boy's necessities?
Is it the logical sequence of any careful
thought, estimate, judgment of the little
chap Do you even go so far as to think
that it would please the boy? Not a bit of
it. It is, nine times out of ten, an inchoate
desire, an unthought of impulse to be rid of
the annoyance of the boy and toe unpleas
antness of his dirt; yet some benevolent old
lady, looking over her spectacles and her
stomach, seeing -ou let the little boy go off
with live or six cents more than belong to
him, smiles all over with cherubic gleam,
and tells her family, whom she joins in hum
ble home that evening, about "tho generous
man who gave five cents to a little newsboy."

There is surprising reckic -sness regard
ing the preservation of monumeul;
erected ov tr.e government survevors
throughout the northwest. The surveyor
of Brown, county. Dakota, gives this
timely warning in a local paper: I
notice a lamentable want of care- of the
government corners among the farmers
and landowners of the country. Where
stakes existed they are rotted off. often
pulled out and used for firewood; the
mounds arc erased by cattle or travel.
I the pits. are filled up and obliterated, and
soon, if not already, 110 certain evidence
will remain of their exact location. Now I
need r.ot enlarge on the very great import
ance of preserving thse points to mark
011 boundary lines. Residents from the
east can recall any amount of trouble
arising from tome "lost corner," doubts,
disputes, litigation and perchance a big
surveyor's bill. Therefore, let every one
of these corners receive the prompt at
tention necessary to make it doiiiuie and
permanent. Since c-ach corner has an
individuality of its own, owing to the
marked irregularities of the government
surveys, it is a mistake to think that ;i
lost corner may readily be restored by
measurements from adjacent corners.

Tho ono ail important requisite for a suc
cessful jockey is to ke. ; a cool head and to
ossess an unerring judgment, for if he loses
one and fails of having tho ot her at a critical
moment, ho will never overcome the many
obstacles that meet him with every turn of
tho track, and never win a raeo unless ho is
mounted upon a horse, that will carry him
through ia spite of himself. Thero is ns
much strategy and finesse to he exercised ou
the race course as on the battleiield. One
must know his enemy thoroughly, and must
be alive to take instant advantage of an'
errors his opponents may make. lie must
endeavor to make his rivals use up all their
strength before the critical moment comes,
ami must reserve for himself suflieient force
to carry him safely through the final
A KNACK OF RIDING.
But above all, he should ho very intimately
acquainted with the capabilities of his own
horse, and must bo thoroughly conversant
with all its points of weakness, ns well as its
elements of strength, for tho former may
often bs taken advantage of if they are not
known to his opponents. There is a certain
knack of riding which it is diflieult to ex
plain, but which has a substantial existence
just tho same, that enables one to almost lift
his horse along, especially in passing under
the wire, when a fortunsdo leap will carry
you to tho front by even a nose. Many ri
lucky win of mine has been made in this
way, noticeably in the recent race where
Tea Tray and Tristan were at the fore,
and Tristan won by so small a fraction that
it is said that no one on tho track saw the
true result, excepting the judges. In that
race, which was one of the most exciting iu

Tho sensations which a jockey experiences
in speeding around the track are many and
varied, and there is always the utmost ex
hilaration of mind, and every muscle of his
body is drawn to a tension approaching the
breaking point. He has little time to view
the landscape within tho inclosure, or to see
the mad crowd that is cheering him on from
the grand stand, or at the fences close by the
track, even if his eyes are not blinded by the
showers of n;ud or the clouds of dust with
which the enemy in front delight to greet
him. But he knows instinctively that the
landscape and the crowd are there, and he
hears tho cheers of the mob faintly above the
clattering of the horses' hoofs. These are
quiet and subdued sounds at the start, which
are completely lost tho moment the first turn
is made, and then they cease altogether until
the homestreteh is gained, when the noise
grows gradually loader, but seldom becomes
a good sized one for the jockey's ears. It is
whe:i the race is over and the victory is won
that the jockey remembers all ho has pas.-ed
through. The nervous exhaustion occasioned j
by a record breaking mile is excessive, but a
bath and rub down soon puts the jockey in
healthy trim for the nest race. William
