WOMAN'S CLUB HOLDS
OPENING MEETING
The Woman's Club of Wil
liams held the opening meeting
of the year 1921-22 at the Par
ish House on Saturday after
noon, October 1. Business was
9 transacted and delegates were
chosen to attend the Northern
Arizona Federation at Flag-
staff on October 14-15. Three
new members, Miss Duncan.
Miss Jaggard and Miss Hoffner
were received into membership.
After the business was trans
actd, Mrs. Montgomery illus
trated the Evolution of Dress
" with living models. From 1776
down to today, a bewlidering
array of beauty and charm!
Williams can be proud of her
, many beautiful women who in
graceful bearing and personal
ity would enthuse the brush of
a painter. '
There were several real old
lace shoulder draperies, of rare
beauty, a Paisely shawl, quaint
tight fitting bodices of a day
gone by, with still quainter bon
nets and modern creations
which, owed their daring color
ing and inherent dignity to old
Spain. It was an afternoon of
unalloyed enjoyment for the be
holder. The Woman's Club can boast
of artists in almost every line of
endeavor. The designer . of
wearing apparel and the cook
took honors at this meeting for
the afternoon ended with deli
cious refreshments prepared by
a master hand.

THREE. BOYS GET
BIG MOUNTAIN LION
Raymond ' Rupe, of Maine,
accompanied by two friends,
Frank Lasater, of Fowler, Kans
and Vern Walters, of Glendaje.
were hunting on the north slope
of the Sitgreaves, Monday. It
was near sunset when Frank
came upon a large lion asleep
on a high; ridge. He fired at
the animal and badly crippled
it but it got away in the gather
ing dusk.
The following morning
Frank and Vem returned to
take up the trail. They tracked
the beast by the trail of blood
which it left until they came to
a rocky cliff. The boys were a
short distance apart when Vern
ran upon the wounded cat hid
ing under a rock. He was with
in a few feet of the wounded
beast before he saw it. He
pulled up and fired just as the
cat made for him. The ball
struck the animal just below
the eye, passed through the
head and buried itself in the
neck, but did not stop the ani
mal's advance. Another shot
from the 30-30 struck him in 1
the back and stopped him in
COUNTRY ITEMS
Work has been started on
the building of a fine big mon
ument and sign at the junction
of the Canyon road with the
Highway, north of Maine. The
sign will be a whopper in size,
so that it is thought that even
the blind cannot get by without
seeing it. It will be set upon a
pyramidal concrete base, six
feet in diameter, and will cost
in the neighborhood of One
Thousand Dollars. The Board
of Supervisors evidently believe
in signs, but it may be that they
are afraid that some of the
tourists might sneak by and get
to .Williams ; hence the sign.
Ernest Scholz of Garland
Prairie was arrested last week
upon the charge of cruelty to
animals. It is said that he shot
his milk cow in the udder dur
ing a fit of anger. The charge
was preferred against him by
his sister-in-law, Miss Council
man. In addition. Mrs. Scholz
and the children left him, due
to alleged hardships, which
goes to prove out the old max
im, that troubles never come
singly.
S. W. Menarey had to close
down his sawmill last week, ac
count of having to serve on the
jury, which delayed several
people in getting their timber
sawed, as well as the threshing-,
as Menarey promised to let his
40 H. P. Case Tractor furnish
the power to run the thresher.
Two threshing outfits are
working overtime in Garland
Prairie to get the oats and
wheat threshed before the
storms set in.
William Coleman of Garland
Prairie hauled his old faithful
Lizzie to town last Tuesday to
be doctored up. While the
Fords do good service, often
times like the one-hoss shay,
they seem to go all to smash at
once, as. m this instance, when
Mr. Coleman had to use horse
power. to getTier into Williams
to be overhauled. -
On Friday, September 30th,
a cut estimated at 500 to 100
head of sheep arrived at the
Lyons Place, on the east side of
Garland Prairie, without a
herder. Bankhead and Hend
erson are now dipping their
sheep at their ranch at Nevin.
It is thought that the sheep in
question got wind that they
were to be dipped and tried to
make their get-away, in the
hopes of evading the bath. .
On Monday, the 2nd, there
were 121 head of sheep short
in a band of Yaeger and Bly
that were leaving the Forest.
Evidently these 121 head liked
the Forest arid objected to leav
ing. The most promising suggest
ion that has come to light yet
for the consolidation of the
country schools is to have a
larjre central school, say in the
vicinity of the junction of the
new Canyon road with the
Highway, north of Maine. The
children from Spring Valley,
Pittman Valley, Government
and Garland Prairies and Belle
mont could all attend, by being
carried back and forth in cars.
Due to being on the Highway,
travel would be open the entire
school season. If the County
has the necessary com to erect
the buildings, it may be a very
good move.
WOMAN'S RELIEF CORPS
MEETING IS POSTPONED
Mrs. F. O. Poison, president
of the Woman's Relief Corps of
Williams wishes to announce
that the meeting which; should
have been held today, has been
postponed to November 4. This
postponement was made due to
the illness of some members
and the absence of others from
town.
Very important business is
to come before the November
meeting and the President
urges members to bear this in
mind and to make a special ef
fort to be present.
his tracks just before he reach
ed the boy.
The cat was a male and
measured seven feet from tip
to tip. It is probable that its
mate is still in the neighborhood.
SULLIVANT A SINCERE
BELIEVER IN EDUCATION
That Mr. C. R. Sullivant, can
didate for the office of School
Trustee of the Williams schools,
is a sincere believer in educat
ion is damonstrated in his own
life. After finishing his school
ing, he took a correspondence
course in engineering. After
completing that, he bought ad
ditional books with which to
continue his studies. Not con
tent with this he took up yet
another correspondence course
which he is now working on.
Mr. Sullivant is a very com
petent engineer. He is employ
ed by the Saginaw and Manis
tee Lumber Company, at the
saw mill. If elected, he will
take a deep interest in the work
of the Williams school.
County Agent Back
County Farm Agent Chis
holm, who recently went by
horseback to Fredonia and oth
er points north of the Canyon,
returned the first of the week,
and spent Thursday in the vi
cinity of Williams. He is en
deavoring to get a line on the
number of potatoes that will be
marketed from this section this
year, and to aid in connecting
the farmers with the market.
One trip across the Canyon
each year, is quite enough, ac
cording to Mr. Chisholm. He
crossed the Canyon on the sus
pension bridge recently erected
by the Government. This struc
ture offers thrills enough for
most anyone, in his opinion. He
walked across leading his horse
and, as he expressed it, they
bridge swayed and rocked per
petually and rose to meet his
foot at every step. County Su
pervisor Campbell accompani
ed Mr. Chisholm and he declar
ed that once across the bridge
would do him for a lifetime.
Two days "were -required to
reach the North Rim. From
that point the party was driven
by auto to Fredonia. A good
road now leads from Utah to
the North Rim, and there is a
station with accommodations
for visitors at the head of the
trail on the North side. Mr.
Chisholm stated that the view
from the north side excells that
from the south, if such a thing
is possible. There, from an el
evation higher by 100 feet, Bill
Williams and the San Francis
cos appear to be connected by
a continuous chain of moun
tains. The crops across the Canyon
are excellent. It is a wonder
ful country, according to Mr.
Chisholm and for the most part
still awaits development.

WOODS FULL OF HUNTERS
SEVERAL BUCKS BAGGED
The woods have been full of
hunters since the deer season
opened on the first of October,
and a number of fine buck have
been killed. It is to bo hoped
that all of the bucks worj horns?
It appears that a much larger
number of hunters were ouit
during the first few days of the
open season this year, than on
any former year. In addition
to the local huntsmen, many
drove in from Phoenix and oth
er parts of the state.
The first buck reported was
killed by Dr. P. A. Melick. This
is not much of a surprise f or
there is a common saying that
"Doc always gets his."
One of the parties that got
wet and got glimpses and had
a very fine time, but did , not
get anything for the pot, was
that composed of C. B. Williams
Albert Lebsch and W. H. Alli
son. The greatest excitement
of their hunt was experienced
on the first night, Friday nighty
when Mr. Allison lost his way
and failed to appear at camp
Messrs Williams and Lebsch:
built a big fire on the highest
mountain around, and fired off
about fifty shots in an effort to
direct him to the camp. At
about ten o'clock he dragged
in soaked to the skin and hun
grier than a bear. This party
got several glimpses of turkeys .
but did not get a shot at them
nor did they find any deer.
Another party consisting of
Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Shaul and
Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield was
more successful. Both of the
women bagged a deer and so
did Mr. Shaul. - -
Andy Smith and N. K. Hall
both succeeded in bringing:
down their season's buck.
Mr. G. H. Spellmire, accom
panied by his old time friend,
Mr.' Murphy,, from Indianapol
is, accompanied another party
of huntsmen. Audrey Spell
mire was a member of this
party also. Up to Thursday
night, when copy was closed
lor the paper, no wordi had!
been received from this party
It is anticipated that they will
bring in their share of game.
ARE SORE AGAINST
THEIR OWN OAD
Pat Moran, of Babbitt Bros-
in Flagstaff , . and Charles H
Heisser, postmaster of the same
town, attempted a flying trip
to Grand Canyon over their
pet hobby the - Maine Grand
Canyon highway. The gentle
rain of last Friday and Satur
day had done its work on the
road and these gentlemen, af
ter countless difficulties, ' gave
up in despair when about fif
teen miles out from Grand Can
yon. It was enough to make
them despair for their machine
was restincr snusrlv in a bed of
mud- nominally a road bed-
Profanity and planks proved
equally inefficient and the two
gentlemen finally did the best
they could to make themselves
comfortable for the night.
They had neither blankets nor
food and the night, was eold
They spent a miserable night
to put it mildly.
Had these gentlemen had the
good judgement to take the
Williams-Grand Canyon roadU
thev would have reached the
Canyon on schedule wrthoat
hardship or mishap. They did
take, the Williams road the fol
lowing day and came tfcretrgfr
in short time. As they stopped
in Williams, they had nothing
good to say for the Maine
Grand Canyon highway.
If an auto party shotrrd
break down on the Williams--Grand
Canyon road and find
themselves in a plight similar
to that of these two Flagstaff
gentlemen, they would need
but to flag a train on the rail
way nearby, and ride to towns
to spend a comfortable night
Yet the county is puttingf ap
n expensive sign at the junction
of the Maine Road with the.
Williams-Flagstaff highway,
for fear that some tourist might:
fail to follow in the path of
Messrs Moran and Heisser:
