PRESCOTT, A&lZOftA, AUGUST 23, 1905. Page Five ARIZONA, THE LAND OF MANY .- FERTILE VALLEYS. Millions of Acres of Arable Lands Richer Than New England. (Continued from Page Two.) There is. a mistaken idea in the east about Arizona. While it is recogniz- ed as one of the richest storehouses of metals in the universe, it is supposed to be a hopeless desert, ,and those who live here are objects of pity anil so licitude. But, while the rocks : re many and the sand covers a large area of the territory, these little valleys I have just described are as fertile as the soil of Egypt or the prairies of Iowa, and nowhere, ran a larger return per acre be obtained if -water is available. The reports of the geological fcurvey credit Arizora with 10,000,000 acres of arable lands more than all the New England states combined and the average yield per acre under irrigation is several times as great as can be har vested . from any farm east of the Al leghany mountains.

Suddenly Duvall heard his fel low miner scream, and turned around in time to view the awful sight of his companion plunging down the black hole to instant death. The cage was signalled, and with it came assistance, and when the miners reached the bot tom of the shaft at the 500 foot level, a grewsome sight met their eyes.
