NEW YORK HAS
SOLD AN ISLAND.
An island on Long Island Sound
just outside of New York City
but in Westchester county limits
has been sold bp the State Laud
Board $1200. This sale was uu-
usual and the attention of the
laud board was called to the ex-
istence of the of the island by a
Mr. Deerfield of New York.
Mr. Deerfield called it a rock
and offered to pay $50 for it. LI is
offer was rejected. He then came
to Albany aud bid $60 for the
"rock." Later he said he would
give $200 for it. An investigation
followed Mr. Deerfield's persistent
efforts to get the island and it was
sold at auction for $1200 to an-
other person. New York Herald.
San Francisco Cali. Aug. 2.
Acting on instructions issued by
President Hsrriman the beads of
departments of the Southern Pacific
company have begun taking a
census of the employes 65 years
old and over. It is thonght that
this is the forerunner of some sort
of peusion system although Mr.
Harriman has not announced his
plans. It is found that while
there are nq0?fBmr& or conduc-
tors 65 years of age quite a num-
ber of the menftn the shops and in
other department-are on the list.

C. H. Maris collector of customs
at Brownsville nrnveil in the idly
Thursday afternoon md will remain
here several days before returning
to headquarters. Mr .Maris resides
in the Fifteeuth Congressional
district and speaking of the politi-
cal outlook bald: " We confident I
expect to elect Mr. John C. Scott
of Corpus Cliristi as Congressman
of our district. Mr. Scott for many
years te.-ided in the country along
the Rio Grande and he has a great
many ftiends there. Many of the
stock mm who control a large num
ber of vote am! in past years have
supported Mr. Klebrg will give
their aid to Mr. Scott as they have
assured me. As t how many
Republican cmdidatetve expect
to elect to Congress 1 cauBDt say."
Speakiug uf affairs at Browns-
ville Mr. Maris said that irrigation
i was one of the great factors then
aud among crops planted this yeai
was 3000 acres of rice that is to bt
harvested 'this mouth. The ricr
crop was planted almost twi
months late. The crop will b
shipped chiefly to Galveston aud
New Orleuus lor market. Those
who had corn crops under irrigation
proved very fortnuate by reason of
the high price being paid there!

BURNS FIGHTS JAWLEY.
Former Retaliates forLatler's Op-
position to His Appointment.
Austin Texas July 31. News
of a warm political row among the
republicans of the State is just be-
ginning to leak out. From what
can be learned it originated during
the Floresville convention which
nominated Judge Scott for con-
gress inthe Corpus Christi district.
It seems that some important things
which transpired during the de-
liberations of the body were sup-
pressed and are just now coming
Judge Waller Burns ot Houston
the new Federal district judge was
present at the convention. It is
now a well known fact that be does
not think very much of Mr. Haw-
ley. The anti-Hawley crowd lined
up with the friends of State Chair-
man Lyon and the Eawley faction
proper was being stsered by Dis-
trict Attorney Terrell of San An-
tonio. After the convention com-
menced its labors a resolution was
introduced indorsing Hawley for
State committeeman. It commend-
ed his course and advocated an-
other two years' term for the "Tex-
as boss" in the councils of the Na-
tional committee. The resolution
failed to materialize when the time
arrived for its consideration and a
row is now on in earnest. Every-
thing is laid at the door of Judge
Burns by the friends of Hawley.
They assert openly that Judge
Burns prevented the indorsement
and the war is cow on to the knife.
This will of course hamper the
chances of Judge Scott as the par-
ty i greatly divided in his district.
A cute American farmer con-
ceived the idea of using what
theatrical folk wonld call a "prop-
erty" calf for the purpose of fool-
itiL' a cow that would not for some-
reason or other yield her milk as
she should. He had the skin of a
calf stuffed with straw and atmilk-
ini; times brought thin "counterfeit
presentment" arid set it dowu be-
fore the cow just out of her reach.
The lattwr seemed to thiukthat the
milk the dairyman was extracting
wa for the calf in front of her
aud gave a generous yield when-
ever the stuffed animal was in

IRRIGATION A REALTY.
Irrigation is nut an experiment;
it is older than history. We read
of it in the hieroglyphics upon
temples of ancient Egypt;
out see copy were created
thuusands of years ago; and
again in tbf Southern region
of Anzoua and New Mexico we
find irrigation canals so old that
great forests have grown over them
and decayed; and again a new
forest has replaced the old. Long
before the advent of the white peo-
ple iu the United States these
irrigation cunals in the Southern
portiou of Arizona and New Mex-
ico suported a highly civilized peo-
ple. We have an example in
modern times England restoring
the irrigation works of the Phar-
ohs and of the prehistoric races iu
ludia. I say to you from actual'
knowledge that the laud susceptible
of irrigation is capable of supplying
to the world as much of necessaries
of life as does the great Missisippi
valley. The semi arid region is
abont oue third of the entiri area
of the United States and of this
area one hundred million acres it
is estimated can be reclaimed;
this provided the government un-
dertakes the matter and carries it
out on a scale commensurate with
the results to be achieved. So great
is the productiveness of the soil
under conditions which are perfect
for agriculture that is to say the
long days of continuous sunshine
during the growing season fertile
soil and water applied just when
it is needed that this area is cap-
able of an aggregate productive-
ness almost beyond measure. The
area for which there is water avail-
able for cultivation will produce
from two and one-half to three
times as much as any similar area
of land in the United States.
Prof. N. S. Shaler.
A minister ouce had a servant
boy who was in the habit of deal-
ing with a butcher named Paul
to whom he owed a large sum of
money. One day immediately af-
ter service he sent his boy after
some meat. When he came back
he found the minister preaching
that every one should pay hit debts.
As the boy entered the church tha
minister was on the point of say-
ing "What did Paul say f "(mean-
ing St. Paul.) The boy thinking
the minister was spssking to him
shouted out "He said hn wouldn't
give any more meat until yon pay
him what you owe." Exchange.
