Navajo County Road Bond
Monday afternoon, by previous
appointment, the supervisors met
and conferred with a committee
of Holbrook citizens in reference
to the bond election advertised
for the 20th of this month. The
committee requested that the
election be postponed until citi
zens from different parts of the
county could meet together and
agree, upon a different apportion
ment of the money proposed to
be raised by the bond issue. The
apportionment made by the su
pervisors, and provided for in the
call for the election, does not
seem to suit some people in the
various districts in the county.
Notwithstanding the fact that
the apportionment made by the
supervisors is identical with that
suggested by the commission se
lected by the supervisors nearly
a year ago to determine the
amount of money needed on each
road, the supervisors gracefully
acceeded to the request of the
Holbrook committee. The elec
tion was ordered postponed. Hol

Their Unwasing Work Keeps Us Strong
All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every
three minutes. The kidneys filter
the blood. They work night and
day. When healthy they remove
about 500 grains of impure mat-,
ter daily, when unhealthy some
part of this impure matter is left
in the blood. This brings on
many diseases and symptoms
which vary widely but may in
clude pain in the back, headache,
nervousness, hot, dry skin, rheu
matic pains, gout, gravel, disor
ders of the eyesight and hearing,
dizziness, irregular heart, debili
ty, drowsiness, dropsy, deposits
in the urine, etc. But if you keep
the filters right the danger is ov
icome. Dean's Kidney Pills have
proven an effective kidney medi
cine. W. Lancaster, railroad, brake
man, ,330 E. Nineteenth St., Tuc
son, Ariz., says: ''A great many
railroad men have kidney trouble,
owing to the jarring of the train.
I was no exception. My back
hurt so badly it nearly killed me
and my kidneys became disorder
ed. Doan's Kidney- Pills sqon
brought me relief and rid me of
the trouble. 50c. at all dealers.
