THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER A ND OUR MINERAL WEALTH.
DAYS JG SUCCESS
Prescott, Arizona, July 24. The
1920 Frontier Days held at Prescott,
Arizona, proved to be the biggest and
best cowboy contests staged by the
Prescott Frontier Days Association.
This was true not only from the
standpoint of the spectators but the
largest number of contestants ever
assembled in the Southwest appeared
in Prescott from the ranges of the
great West' and North to compete in
the events, for which $10,000 in cash
prizes were offered and paid. The
jreputation which Prescott has for
paying every dollar that it advertises
and giving fair play, square treat
ment alike to all contestants is known
far and wide in cowland.
As a fitting close to the four days'
contests, the cowboys staged a mini
ature frontier days at Whipple Bar
racks, located on the immediate out
skirts of Prescott where hundreds of
gassed and tubercular soldiers are
patients of the government.
Among the Ust of contestants were
many of the cowboys connected with
the Tom Mix company of the Fox
Film corporation. Mix did not com
pete in the events, but took advantage
of the big contests to add color to
lis latest Dicture: "The Texan."

Just Couldn't Fool Him
"I had a bird dog once," the old
sportsman observed, that was really
noteworthy. He never failed on a
point One day I had him out for
exercise in the park, when suddenly
he pointed, rigid as stone. I was
puzzled. There was no possibility of
game. The grass was close clipped.
The dog had his nose straight on a
man seated on a bench. I thought the
man might have a live bird in his
pocket, but no, the man was in his
shirt sleeves. Then I had an idea.
"Pardon me, sir,' I said, 'but would
you mind telling me your name?'
"No, I don't mind," he replied. 'It's
Patridge.' " New York Evening P(st

Midsummer Brings Its Blouses
AN EPILOGUE to the story of sum
mer blouses might easily be
longer than the story Itself for mid
summer has modified the earlier styles
and added some new Ideas to those
that the spring has brought In.
The popularity of elbow and shorter
sleeve persists, except for the tailored
styles. Trlcolette was a second thought
with designers and has proved Im
mensely popular. Just now It has
joined forces with georgette and these
two are used together, with the trlco
lette appearing In wide panels on the
front of sheer blouses to provide a
smart vest for the street or formal
Nearly all the new smocks are very
short, made of georgette with em
broidery for decoration. Those for
afternoon and dinner wear are In high
colors and often use a plain and a fig
ured pattern In combination. Orange,
Same, turquoise, emerald, rose and jade
green are In high favor and they are
embroidered In other brilliant colors.
Georgette maintains Its position as
the favorite material for blouses, but
fine voile Is very close to It may out
rival It as summer advances. These
lovely and practical yoiles are reason
ably priced and other blouses show a
decline that Is promising. Voile Is
Ideal for wear with street suits and
wash satins or pongee silks are Its
competitors In tailored models.
A blouse and a smock ot georgette
are shown In the picture, both of them
examples of long-sleeved designs. The
blouse Is In a very light tan color, and
cherries with twigs and foliage are em
broidered In beads and silk. Very
wide tucks at each side of the front
and above the cuffs help give this
model its tailored character. Wide
tucks are unusual, but a great many
models employ very narrow ones and
pin tucks like those that embellish the
smock pictured. An attractive detail
In this smock appears In velvet ribbon
bands at the waist, and a velvet rib

This Is to be a season of bright con
trasts, so behold even trlcotlne frocjfs

Draped Skirts Are Becoming.
Draped skirts are becoming to the
slim woman or the debutante, and
when made of voile or taffeta fall In
soft, graceful lines.
Trolling for halibut and barracuda
(n a blimp is the newest style of fish
ing in Southern California.
Not only does not combine two of
the most exhilirating sports known to
man aviation and angling but it
ensures successful fishing, according
to the experience of a party of Good
year flyers who recently inaugurated
the sport off Portuguese Bend, near
Los Angeles harbor, where ideal
"blimp-fishing" conditions were
Making an early morning flight
from the company's baloon field south
of Ascot Park, Los tAngeles, the
"Pony" Blimp, as the midget dirigible
is called, turned north along the coast
at Los Angeles Harbor and proceed
ed at a height of several huudred
feet until the fishing grounds were
reached. The fish can be easily lo
cated from this distance above water,
so it was no trouble to find a good
place to fish.
Descending, the 'Tony" Blimp
made an easy "landing" on the water
by the simple process of dipping sev
eral collapsible buckets in the ocean,
the added weight holding the baloon
at the surface of thd water, After
a try at still fishing, the anglers rose
to a height of forty feet and trolled
with the motor in "low", making only
two or three miles an hour.
Several good sized barracuda were
landed by George Hockensmith, B.
Campbell and Philip Coe of the Good
year aeronautical department, who
composed thq party of flying Izaak
Wlaltons. Fired by the success of the
initial attempt, the aerial anglers are
planning a "hop" to Catalina Island
to have a try at landing a big tuna.
The blimp used in the experiment
was the 95-foot D-57, the world's
smallest practical dirigible, which has
been making1 frequent flights in the
neighborhood of Los Angeles during
the past several weeks. After pay
ing a visit of several days at the U.
S. Naval Air Station near San Diego,
the ship just recently flew to River
side at the invitation of Lieutenant
Colonel B. K. Yount to visit the Army
Air Station at March Field.

The Best Investment
Even in the face of the present high interest
returns on stocks and bonds, a savings account
with its interest returns of 5 is the most
desirable investment for the investor.
Stocks and bonds must oftentimes be sacri
ficed! l(a account of market conditions, when
quick money is needed, but a savings account
can always be realized upon for its real value.
