election of Clerk of the Superior
Court, Attorney General Wiley E.
Jones has advised the Secretary of

as follows: I
"On my advice Secretary of State
sends order by mail to include Court j
Clerk in election call.
WILEY E. JONES,
A peculiar condition arose in the
matter of the clerk of the superior
court in this county. Lon Teale, the
sitting clerk of the court, was a can
didate for re-election, two years ago
and was elected without opposition.
Following the election and before he
could qualify for the term to which
he had been elected, JIr. Teale was
taken,' ill and died. Frank N. Van
Marter was appointed to fill the va
cancy and it was understood that he
would hold that office until the elec-
Graves Baby Drinks
Acid, Has Narrow Escape
Prompt action on the part of the
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Graves,
saved their little daughter from death
when she drank from a bottle of mur
iatic acid that had been left within
her reach at the Davis ranch on the
Big Sandy, last Wednesday evening.
Antidotes were administered as soon
as it was learned that the little one
had drank the poison and she was
rushed by automobile to the Fanchcr
ranch at Cane Springs, where the
I faster car of William Sitton was im
I pressed into service and the trip con
' tinued to Kingman. Drs. Todt and
White worked over the little one and

road to recovery.
Mr. and Mrs. Graves wishes to ex
press their thanks to the many friends
who extended aid and comfort during
the severe illness of the child. Mrs.
W. J. Waidler, of Yuma, a sister of
Mr. Graves, is expected here from
Yuma to nurse the little one, being

tion in 1920. The boqrd of super
visors that came in on the first Mon
day in January, 1919, thought other
wise and appointed J. T. Morgan to
the vacancy (?). Morgan brought
suit for the office and the matter was
threshed out (jn demurrer. Judge
O'Connor, of Santa Cruz county, tried
the cause and decided in favor of Mr.
Morgan. Notice of appeal was giv
en, but the matter 'was settled be
tween Mr. Morgan and Mr. Van Mar
ter. At the time of the suit it was
understood from the ruling of Judge
O'Connor that there would be at the
next succeeding election an election
to fill the vacancy, but the case of
State Tax Commissioner Kuechfer
came up to change the opinion of the
Attorney General and as a result the
superior court clerkship was consid
ered in the same light and was left off
the call for the primary. Itwill now
go on the ballot.
Teddy Braffet, who has been in the
navy for sometime has now been ad
