OFFICIAL PAPER OF APACHE COUNTY
July 19, 1917.
Can You Hear the Burros Bray?
One of the national movements
for city and town betterment is
to try and suppress unnesessary
noises and one thing that has been
done is to try and get soft pur
ring engines in the automobiles,
but when this is done they
have to put on horns that make
the most hideous noises to let the
people know that they are coming.
In St. Johns we are not, as yet,
bothered much with the honking
of the automobile horn, but since
the sale of the 350 burros, last
week, by the county assessor,
every kid "knee-high to a grass
hopper' has oblained a burro and
their melodious braying can now
be heard in all parts of the city
and at all hours of the night and
During the small hours of the
morning one awakes from his
peaceful slumbers with a sudden
start, thinking that the fire-alarm
has been sounded and that per
haps his home is in flames, but
upon calmer listening he hears
the braying of a number of. jack
asses and knows that his slumbers
were broken by a worthless pest.
For our part we cannot see why
families want to or three of these
animals around their homes for
pets. If a person has use for
them it might be different, but
we can't see the point . Ed .
The above is the editor opinion
of burros, but then, the editor
wasn't one of the 'lucky kids'
and the (printers) devil thinks
he would swap his automobile for
one of those little jackasses.

as well as Fighters. Two million

The assessment roll for Apache
county this year shows quite an
increase in the tax valuation.
The assessed valuation for 1917
is $7,368,553.73, while for 1916 it
was $6,636,573.16, an increase for
1917 of $731,980.57. This either
shows that Apache county is
growing rich or that the assessor
is doing more efficient work, or
Few medicines have met with
more favor or accomplished more
good than Chamberlain's Colic
and Diarrhoea Remedy. JohnF.
Jantzen, Delmeny, Sask., says of
it, "I have used Chamberlain's
Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy my
self and in my family, and can
recommend it as being an excep
tionally fine preparation. Adv

Separating a Man from his Money, it can be done
all right ask Doc.
But separating- a man from his fnonev for noor
Building Material is a different proposition.
When you see some of the stujf that masquerades
under the guise of Lumber and Building Material
we really wonder how some people can be separated
from their money so easily.
It's all veiy well to think of your dollars when
JJ buying Lumber and Building Material, but it is also
mignty good judgement to consider the quality m
relation to the price.
When we sell you Lumber and Building Material IS
we first look to Qualitythen to price---and finally
to the best and quickest way of giving both.
