Turna! What recollectíons the name tself brings upl Yuma, -where they dig ror wood and climb for water. Where iiere are more Mexicans than Americons, and more Indians than eitber. Where the "thermometer "seldom gete above 118 in the shade," and where the wicked Ynmaite in school sent home for his blanket. Where the seat of honor is the left hand, and the railroad hotel gives tbe traveler tender beefsteaks. Where the river is the color of tbe earth, and the earth the color of the water. Where steamboats run comfortably on moist Band, and the prisoners in the penitentiary keep store in the prison yard. Where the gris are "tough" and the boys are "gentle and refined." Where they eat strawberries in Jamiary, and where thedesert blossoms lüe the rose. Where the rainfall is less in a year than it is in New York in a day, and where the old men pitch pennies and fly kites. Where the ludían warrior is practically peacefxd and clean, and where the entire worid seems topsy turvy. Such is Ynma, a pictnresqne town (ritnated in the heated corner of the world whero Arizona, California and Mexico
