Breaks $70 Window to Get $26 Gun Some miscreant, hobo, robber or other party hurled a brick, stone or other missile thru one of the large plate glass windows in the front of John son and McConkey's hardware department Thursday morning and removed one 380 Reming ton from the window. The per son also took two boxes of car tridges. The stolen goods are worth -only about half the cost of the broken window. The time of the deed is guessed to have been between five o'clock and daylight. The officers have not as yet found any plausible clue as to the identity of the store breaker.

Recently a new vegetable and fresh fruit coun ter has been added to their grocery department, and here a fresh supply of green fruits and vegetables is always on dis play to tempt and please the growing number of customers in that department. One of the latest additions to the hardware department is a bargain table where irresist ible bargains are continually on display. On the drygoods side the new millinery department is the latest addition and is rapid ly growing in favor. In fact so large and complete has this firm's stock of general merchandise become that it may be said that if you want anything in merchandise they iutvt: it. C. R. SULLIVANT FOR SCHOOL TRUSTEE The Williams School District is, indeed, fortunate in having the opportunity to elect C. R. Sullivant its next trustee, as he seems to be the right man in the right place. He puts good schools and good education for children first in his way of looking for a better civilization. This is well verified by the deep interest he has taken in the Williams School and his own children's welfare in education during his several year's residence here. At this time he has two child ren in our high school, one in the grades, a son in college in Albuquerque who finished high school here in June, and a son who is not yet of school age. Mr. Sullivant's only object in running is to serve the patrons of the district, many of whom have urged him to announce himself, in helping build up a better school in Williams. Miss Marguerite i Vadeboncoeur Bride At Beautiful Ceremony MANISTEE, MICH. Sept. 10 A beautiful and impressive wedding ceremony was solemn ized this morning at 9 o'clock in St. Mary's church, when Mar guerite Ruth, pretty daugnter of Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Vadebon coeur, 148 Ford street, became the bride of George W. Kimball of Williams, Ariz. Fr. J. A. Camirand performed the cere mony. The church was handsomely decorated with pink and white asters, cosmas, and palms. It was filled to capacity with friends and relatives. Little Phyllis Elliott, wearing white organdie, . daintily trim med with pink rose-buds, was flower girl, and she gracefully strewed white blooms before the bride, to the altar. Miss Eva Rennell played both Lohen grin's and Mendelssohn's wed ding marches. The bride was given away by her father. During the mar riage ceremony Mrs. Verna Pet erson Robe beautifully sang Kahn's "Ava Maria," and "Oh, Perfect Love." St. Mary's choir of girls also sang hymns during the ceremony. The bride's gown was of soft ivory satin and old lace, with pearls. Her veil was of tulle caught with orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of roses and lillies of the valley. Mrs. E. A. Tincher of Cleve land; sister of the bride, was the matron of honor. She wore green and silver taffeta, with hat to match, and carried a shower bouquet of pink roses. The bridesmaids were the Miss es Olive Vadeboncoeur and Helen Jentoft, and both wore pink organdie and pink organ die hats to match, carrying pink roses. Syril Vadeboncoeur, brother of the bride, acted as best man. and Henry Vadeboncoeur and John Meier were ushers. The bride is a graduate of Manistee High school and of Downer College at Milwaukee, and has been teaching in Cleve land high school. The bride groom, whose original home was in Lowell, Mass., is a grad uate of Harvard University, and during the war served as first lieutenant overseas for a year and a half.

It has also proven one of the most profit able, which may prove the theo ry of he silver lining to the darkest cloud. On September 17, the town marshal brought Jose Mata be fore Judge Lee on a charge of overjoyfulness, i. e. drunken ness. He was fined $13 which he paid, and went his way re joicing and exclaiming "viva Dios." On the 19th Lorenzo Espeno sa was detected having on his person a heavy piece of artil lery. He was relieved of the artillery and assessed $25.00 which he promptly paid. However it was on the 20th that the big case of the week came up. On this date Mar shals Burns and Case towed in to police court two parties giv ing as their names David and Josephine Bellfin. They were charged with conducting a dis orderly house. Judge Lee plac ed them under a cash bond of $300 and set their trial for Thursday afternoon at 2. They failed to make an appearance whereby their bond was forfeit ed to the city. Marshal Burns while investi gating the records of the two, received photographs of the man from the sheriff of San Bernardino county, Calif., He was there convicted on a like charge and fined $280 in addi tion to a jail sentence of six months. Mrs. Bellfin was ar rested at the same time and was fined $360 by the same court Both parties were fined for kid napping their two children from a detention home in Cali fornia, only a short time ago. They sometimes travelled un der the name of Bell and some- I times Bensen. The arrest of the pair on this charge rather disturbs their plans to secure their child ren fr6m the detention home ftn California. They had a pe tition circulated in Williams a few weeks ago, attesting to their good moral character, and secured the signatures of a number of prominent citizens of Williams, Upon the strength of this petition Judge Jones ot Flagstaff, recommended to the California authorities, that the children be returned to their parents. A representative of the county was sent to bring the children home. At the time of going to pregs it had not been learned whether the children were released by 'the authori ties in California. The U. S. Department of Justice is now looking for Mr. and Mrs. Bellfin, seeking to take them into custody on a charge of violating the Mann act. One Petra Gutterez was also taken up on a charge of vagran cy and given the alternative of spending ten days in jail or ! leaving town, promptly. She" departed The Personal Touch The personal touch has much to do with the great popular ity of James Kennedy's Qual ity Grocery. Mr. Kennedy is always on the job, he knows all his customers personally and every customer knows that the integrity and reliability of James Kennedy is back of every article sold in his store. That is the great reason why those who buy there once return to buy again. The other big at traction in this store for all cus tomers is the extremely reason able price charged for every thing sold.

About 100 people were present. . o o o Tanlac, the remarkable rem edy that everybody is talking about, is sold by the Williams Drug Company. adv. Quietly Wed Chief Ranger Smith, of the Grand Canyon Park Service, accompanied by Miss Brown, Assistant Superintendent, gave their friends both at the Can yon and in Williams, the slip and were quietly wed in Flag staff Saturday. They again passed thru Williams unherald ed and unnoticed, Sunday, and are now in Los Angeles on their honeymoon. The first word their many friends had of th event was secured from the best man who was discovered mak ing his way baek to the Canyon alone, on Monday. Mrs. Smith is the daughter of congressman Smith of Tennesee. This mar- riage marks the" culmination of a two months romance amid the inspiring scenes of the world's greatest wonder. o o o ' V Livestock and Range Report Reports from stock and range observers throughout the state indicate that feed and Water are exceptionally plentiful. High winds over the northern half of the state with dry weather are drying the range grasses rapidly and assuring plenty of winter feed. Rainfall has been confined to light show ers in 'the middle and eastern and extreme southern parts of the state. The round-up of stock is progressing in Apache and Navajo counties. The week has been favorable for all farm activities with con tinuous sunshine, light winds over the valley sections and temperatures about normal. The humidity has been pecul iarly changeable. Crops are matureing rapidly in all parts of the state. Grain harvest is nearing completion in the nortHern half of the state and considerable hay is being stack ed. COUNTRY ITEMS Don't pass up the entertain ment and dance at Bob Glea son's in Pittman Valley tomor row night, the 24th, unless you want to miss one of the best times you have ever had. The next good dance will be at Harry Boulin's new house in Red Lake Valley on Satur day flight, October 1st. Harry has the best floor anywhere in the country, and has put on a good substantial roof. While Harry doesn't think the crowd will raise the roof, there's no telling what a gay, happy crowd might do. Everybody will be welcome. Ralph McLean, of Red Lake Valley, is digging his well deep er, in the hopes that he will either get the well down to wat er or the water will come up to the well. Ralph thinks if. the water doesn't soon come in, it will miss a mighty good chance. The largest crowd of town people at any country dance this year attended the barn dance at Bill Morgan's Ranch in Garland Prairie last Satur day night. Nathan Bankhead and family were out from Flag staff and a large crowd was out from Williams. Plenty of good cake and coffee were served, and last, but not least, came the roasting ears. The only drawback was that due to there being no roof on the barn and a brisk wind blowing, the mus ic at times could" scarcely be heard by the dancers. Every body, however,, enjoyed a. good time. The feature of the dance was the song that Harry Gray wouldn't sing. Oliver Gardner, of Garland Prairie, will prove up on his homestead claim next month. Anderson and McMillan, of Maine, have installed a gas station and are building their new 24 by 28 store at the junct ion of the new Canyon road with the highway. Harry Greene and Jess Lee are inv charge of a gang of men, fencing the Forest boundary. They started work at the north west corner of Section 18, T. 23N., R.3E., north of Claude Hume's Ranch, in Red Lake Valley, and will work north to the northwest corner of - the Forest, and will then work east, fencing the north line of the Forest. $1000 was contributed by the sheep men. In addition, they are making contributions of labor and teams. The boys are building a good strong fence, and, as there is about twenty miles of it to be built, they will be hard at it for some little time. The fencing of the Forest boundary will prevent the cattle and horses that be long to the Forest from drifting off, and will also prevent the unpermitted stock, which have no rights on the Forest, from I t f i - j :n jt I drilling on, ana wj.ii liius piu tect the Forest Range. Combination Picnic Proves Great Success The Williams and Flagstaff ledges of the Odd Fellows held a joint picnic and ball game iasr Sunday, which proved an unqualified s uccess. The at tendance was good, the feed was still better, and the ball game surely took the cake. The score stood 19 to 10 in favor of the Williams link men when the Flagstaff bunch lost their wind and refused to field any more Williams hits. All pres ent voted the picnic the most successful yet undertaken, and hope to see the event repeated next year. METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH W. I.

The council ex pressed itself as perfectly will ing to buy water from this pro ject but felt forced to look to private capital for its develop ment. It was generally felt that the price being aske4 for water rights on both places would make the proposition too ex pensive to be feasible for the city to handle. Mr. Hamilton may proceed with the development himself or he may interest others and make it a stock company pro position. In the meantime the city should continue to investi gate possible solutions of ; the city's water problem and probably will continue to do so. One possible solution which is worth careful investigation, is that of developing wells near town to be used during the summer. The municipal reser voir supplies satisfactory water for about nine months out of the year most years. . A line of large clay pipe laid from the source of the water in the mu nicipal watershed down -to the dam would probably suffice to fill the dam even in a year-like the present one. With sufficient wells to supply the town during the summer and the reservoir as a source' of supply for the balance of the year, the city would make out very well. The danger lies in interest being permitted to wane withr the problem left unsolved. Ad equate water must be secured for Williams, one way or an other. "The Price the Thing" K. C. Kirby in his little store on Bill Williams avenue, still in sists that "the price is the thing" and on that basis is building up a nice trade. 13 YEAR OLD BOY KILLS HIS FRIENIT Last Sunday about noon, Jesus Avalos while endeavor ing to unload a 22 calibre rifle, accidently shot Manuel Carden as who was with him. Jesus is 13 years old and Manuel was his elder by one year. The shooting took place at old Fair view, now Larson's wood camp. Avalos was hit just above the heart and lived until Mon day morning. George Harben, Assistant County Attorney, came down from . Flagstaff Monday to investigate the kill ing. The coroner s jury sum moned by Judge McDougal, found that "Manuel Cardenas, came to death by gunshot wound inflicted by a rifle in the hand ,of Jesus Avalos, accident ally discharged." Judge Jones was down fronr Flagstaff Monday looking into some juvenile matters. Among those whom he had brought be fore him .was Jesus Avalos who accidentally killed his boy friend Manuel Cadeias, on Sun day. Jesus faithfully promised not to take a gun in his hands again until he reaches his eigh teenth birthday. Mineral Water That Cures Mr. Ed Hamilton brought a sample of the mineral water at Rowe's well, to the office one day this week. The water is pleasant to drink and yet it isr claimed by hundreds who have tried it, to have wonderful med icinal value, especially as a cure for rheumatism. Mr. Hamilton stated that he offers the well as a free camping ground, to tour ists and all other visitors. He hopes that someday it will be? i made into a summer resort foi" I the benefit of the afflicteof j but . states that neither he nor .Mr. Rowe are financially able to erect such a resort.
