The Least Expensive We Know
ONLY the best paint can give
you satisfaction at the low
est cost. It spreads easily sav
ing labor cost. It covers more
area per gallon than "cheap"
paint. Two worth-while savings.
But more than that it serves
for many years longer than
"cheap" paint and in serving it
prevents depreciation," saves re
pairs, and enhances values.
We have been making best
paints for 73 years to meet the
weather conditions of the West.

NAVAJO COUNTY MAKING
45 MILES OF ROADWAY
Navajo county is now building 45
miles of new road, assisted by the
state of Arizona and the federal gov-
nrnmnnf Tha rnnd nlns from Hol-
brook to Winslow and from Holbrook
to the Petrified Forest, which is situ
otoj nVimif 1R Tiiiloc pnst of Holbrook.
This, when completed, will make one
of the finest pieces oi roauway in me
state. Under the plans of the Unit
ed States government the federal aid
roads must be 24 feet in width and
constructed in a manner laid down by
This will give us fine roads from
Holbrook to Winslow and from Hol
brook to St. Johns and Springerville.
Apache county hag already built a
fine road from the Petrified Forest
southward, and now that Navajo coun
ty will have finished its end of the
roadway, there can be little cause for
complaint for the distances above re
The contractors on the roadway
from Holbrook to Winslow are mak
ing good progress. There are four
contracts, averaging about eight
miles each. On the Petrified Forest
side the engineers have been at work
for some time. The contractors are
now said to be actually engaged in
building this latter road, so that by
next spring there should be a fine
piece of road in that direction. Hol
ESCAPED CONVICTS ARE RE
CAPTUREDDID NOT RESIST
Three convicts who escaped from
the state penitentiary at Florence on
Wednesday night were recaptured
early Saturday morning between Mesa
and Gilbert. They offered no resist
ance to the posse, which was com
manded by Captain Thomas Rynning,
superintendent of the state prison. Ac
cording to Phoenix police officials,
one of the escaped convicts, Maurice
W. Nichols, drove into Phoenix in a
small automobile Thursday and within
a short time vanished again. It was
believed probable that Nichols pro
cured arms and ammunition here and
then went back to join his two com-
S anions. The other two convicts are
ack Langdon, alias Joyce Shipley,
from Coconino county, ana Wallace
Kesselring, from Maricopa.
FELIPE GARCIA ARRESTED
FORKILLING HIS OWN SON
Under-Sheriff 0. C. Williams, ac
companied by Assessor Wallace E.
Shumway, went to St. Johns for the
purpose of arresting Felipe Garcia,
who killed his young son at Silver
Creek some time ago, by shooting"
him. At the time of the tragedy,
some time ago, a coroner's inquest
was held and the verdict brought in
was that he had shot the lad accident

HON. E. E. ELLINWOOD MOV S
TO NEW HOME IN PHOENIX
Hon. E. E. Ellinwood, chief counsel
of the Phelps-Dodge Corporation, has
announced that Tie will early in No
vember move his home to Phoenix,
Arizona. Mr. Ellinwood began plan
ning for a home in Phoenix several
jears ago when he purchased a tract
of land on Central avenue out near the
Phoenix country club. Later he pur
chased the home of Hon. Geo. A. 01
ney, adjoining his former purchase.
The Olney home was greatly improv
ed and added to and the land sur
rounding has' been improved by the
planting of fruit trees and shrubbery
Mr. Ellinwood has already secured of
fice rooms in the Heard building,
where he will continue his law work,
remaining with the Phelps-Dodge
Corporation in a consulting capacity.
Mr. Ellinwood is one of the pioneer
citizens of Arizona. Following the
election of Grover Cleveland to his
second term as president Mr. Ellin
wood was appointed to the office bf
United States attorney. Serving four
years he retired from that office to
make room for a republican who was
appointed by President McKinley. He
first resided at Flagstaff after his
arrival in Arizona. When he left the
office of U. S. attorney he moved to
Prescott in Yavapai county where he
continued the practice of law. He
was elected as district attorney of
Yavapai county which he resigned to
accept the position of attorney for
the Copper Queen Consolidated Min
ing company, arriving in Bisbee in
1906. His last public office was that
of delegate to the state constitutional
convention in 1911 when he contribut
ed much of his legal talent in the for
mation of the fundamental law of
Arizona, though he refused to sign the
constitution when it was completed
because of the inclusion of the recall
for the judiciary and other radical
features which he did not approe.
When E. E. Ellinfood departs from
Bisbee next month he will be follow
ed by the best wishes of many friends
in Cochise county who will always be
ready to extend to him the glad hand
whenever he returns and of course it
is expected that he will come often.
The law office of Ellinwood & Ross
will remain intact in Bisbee with Mr.
Ross in charge there. A branch of
fice of the firm will do business at
Phoenix. Douglas International.
BAG THREE LION CUBS;
GLIMPSE LION-BEAR PALS
Three baby mountain lions, about
14 days old, tame, soft little things,
but built to grow up into killers like
their parents, today are all that is
left of a happy family tracked to its
lair in the Sycamore dibtrict, beyond

Leaving Prescott last Tuesday, the
hunting party went to the Double T
ranch of Ben J. Stewart and from
there hunted in the Pine mountain
country. Early yesterday they came
on the tracks of a bear and a lion,
evidently denning together, and show
ing signs of "palling" around togeth
er, according to Patterson.
The hunters followed them for half
a day, finally coming upon the two
animals. Patterson took half his
dogs and started after the bear, which
left the lion and started up the moun
tain. Patterson shot the animal, he
says, but his dogs were worn out and
were unable to track him very far.
He had been feeding in the apple or
chard on the Morris ranch and
was seen about half a mile from the
Giving up the bear, Patterson turn
ed and joined Gilchrist and Laythe,
who, with the rest of the pack, were
following the lion.
The animal, not so large as some
previously captured, was killed with
out much effort.
A lioness then was tracked to her
lair, .killed and her three kittens,
about two weeks old, were brought
to Prescott. The lioness, Mr. Patter
son says, is an especially large an
imal. Ramsey Patterson plans to remain
in Prescott until about the first of
October, when, accompanying two par
ties of hunters from the coast, he will
return to the Sycamore country and

FOUR BEARS IN ONE NIGHT
IS TRAPPING RECORD SET BY
A MIDDLE VERDE RESIDENT
Four bears at a throw is the trap
ping record set bv "Dutch" Dickerson
of Middle Verde the other day, accord
ing to W. Curtis Miller, supervisor
of rural schools, who has just return
ed -from a trip of inspection through
that district. Dickerson set out four
traps near Stoneman lake, says Mr.
Miller, and when he returned to look
them over the next morning he found
he had bagged four bears. One of
them, a big black animal, had fallen
over a cliff and killed himself durine
his frantic struggle to get away from
the trap. P. H. Hayes of Phoenix,
who was with Dickerson at the time,
looked over the edge to see how far
the bear had fallen, and fell over the
brink himself. He lodged in a tree
top, however, and so escaped im
itating the i est of the. bear's luck
less move. The two men then went
to the other three traps, where they
found a large brown bear and two
100-pound cubs, still alive. An at
tempt was fade to take one of the
cubs back alive, but the trap had in
jured it too severely, so all three of
the animals were killed and brought
in with the carcass of the big black
fellow who had committed suicide.
Dickerson says that it appeared to
have been a powerful bad night for
bear, and wonders what would have
happened if he had set out several
dozen traps instead of a mere qur.r

NEW BRIDGE PLANNED
AT TOPOCK, ARIZONA
Survevors from the chief engineer's
office in Los Angeles are making
preparations to locate a temporary
bridge at Topock, Arizona, to be used
for traffic while the present steel
bridge across the Colorado river is

gantic proportions as the temporary
crossing must needs be of concrete
and steel. The main channel is very
deep and the current strong at this
point, which will greatly impede the

west of Kingman and in anticipated
