THE ARIZONA KICKER:
.. , Capellato Wast.
( .Scstkcded: With this issue we sua
.'pend the agricultural department, ec
tablisbed five months ago. Weiaati
tuted this feature as an experiment,
and to help out a literary tenderfoot
from the East, who was bare-footed
and penniless, but who was4ertile of
suggestions. The experiment was a
failure. The aforesaid i. t-f. was
drunk most of- the time, and when
sober he didn't know a cactus from a
wild lemon. The most valuable sug
gestion made by him was that the
farmers of Arizona drink less oats and
sow more whisky. We have bidden
the tenderfoot a permanent and last
ing adieu, and we now bid farewell to
agriculture as a set thing. Wo shall
occasionally refer to the subject in a
reckless,Vff-hand way, taking chances
on results, but there will.be no further
studied attempt to make the sandy
plains get up and hump themselves
into fields of waving corn, and wo
shan't cover the rocky hillsides here
about with vineyards or patches of de
ceptive buckwheat. Good-bye, ten
derfoot good-bye, agriculture!
Go East. We warn those meddle
some citizens who are charging us
with political treachery to go easy. It
is true that the Kicker has been Demo

casionally had a good word for the
Republican ticket, and that we have at
intervals seemed to bo red-hot for pro
hibition, but wo were sort of feeling
around to see what kind of a paper our
subscribers preferred. Wo didn't pro-ipose-to
break ourselves in two in .the
first six months by getting, left Wo
had a Democratic and a Republican,
rooster ready for tbo election returns,
and wo didn't care a cent which way
the old kangaroo jumped. We shall
now be a little more Republican thaa
Democratic, as we want tho county
printing, but whenever we say any
thing distasteful to tho Democracy we
will, as soon its tho matter is called
to our attention, turn about and give)
Harrison a "wipe" in tbo next issue.
We shall bo independent in nothing
and neutral in lots of things, hoping
that the Democrats will get there nexb
time and advising the llcpubttcansto

A. Style of Agriculture. Which Witt Never
T He Very ProNtable.
Too many farmers count the total
area of their acreage rather than tho
average producing value of the land.
No one ever made this dillusivo stylo
of farming very profitable. It would
pay far better in tho end to concen
trate means and energy within narrow
limits, rather than acquire, a number
of acres to be half tilled. Again, tlte
farmer in putting out man tiro gener
ally spreads it over too much territory.
A near neighbor sowed to wheat thir
teen acres of uniform soil; twelve
acres in his usual way well plowed,
harrowed level and the teed harrowed
in. 1'he other-acro was well broken,
and six tons of manure broadcasted
and thoroughly incorporated with tho
soil. In doing this the surface beenmo
in lino condition. This acre yielded
22J bushels; tho twelve acres returned
only C bushels per acre. Tito grain
on the one acre cost forty-live cent
per bushel; on the twelve acres, sixty
live cents per bushel. Yet with all tho
ovidence in favor of high culture wo
still spread ourselves thinly over
broad acres. It should bo the motto
of every farmer to make tho most of
each foot of land, and to nccumulato
all the manure he can -and use it to tho
best advantage. Much space, always
very rich, around PUibles. barns and
fences, is allotted to intruding under
brush or debris, or given up to un
sightly weeds. Learn neatness, care
fulness and economy in the use of land.
Make moro money with less labor.

humblest household may always have

"gulden-hoof." although a run ia lew
lot is favorable in time of drosth.
Sheep are also troubled with parasites
in tho form of scab. This can be
cured by a wash of tobacco water ia
which is a little turpentine. A good
plan is-to scrub or dip the sheep after
shearing. The tick or sheep lousoeaa
