BODY OF CORDOVA ARRIVED THURS. NIGHT The body of Cordova, the Williams boy killed in France during the war, arrived hi Wil liams Thursday night. Com pany I was drawn up at the station to receive the honored remains. From the station the body was taken to the Button Undertaking- parlors where it will remain pending the com- pletion of plans for burial in the local cemetery. Just when the funeral ser vice and burial of Cordova will take place has not been defi nitely settled. The body was NEW LAW ON ANNUAL' ASSESSMENT WORK ON MINING CLAIMS.

The matter was brought to the attention of W. J. Gal braith, Attorney General, and WOMAN KILLS LYNX CAT WITH 22 PISTOL Mrs. V. H. Merritt while riding among the foot hills of Bill Williams, one day last week killed a large lynx. She was armed only with a "22" calibre pistol but her aim was so good that she quickly dispatched the big cat. Mrs. Merritt is an excellent shot with most any kind of gun. Few men- have better success than she at shooting quail and doves on wing. With a rifle she makes a good score at long range. Only recently has she taken to using a pistol. The pistol which she uses is an auto matic recently presented to her by her husband. While it is only twenty-two calibre, it , is far more deadly than the ordi nary twenty-two for it uses a special cartridge and has a long range. The lynx killed by Mrs. Mer ritt was the first member of the wildcat family that she has killed, but it is not her first big game. She killed a deer last deer season. Not an Imposter. A -heavily, bearded man ap peared on the streets of Wil liams the first of the week and declared himself to be Mr. Wil liam Hochgraef. For a time it looked like a-case for detec tives. Could this be some im poster who had made away with Bill and was -now: en deavoring to impersonate him? Further questioning proved be yond a doubt, however, that the new man is Mr. Hochgraef. It will . be remembered that Bill left several, months ago for Martin's dam. to spend a few months in the open in order to better his health. He declares that his health has improved a hundredfold and ' a nvon e ' who takes a look at him will be forced to agree with him. The beard - unknown- before, gives the- finishing touch of huskiness JKlrs.

Mr. Galbraith said that in his opinion this law should be interpreted in the following manner: ThatJ on al claims where, under the old law, the annual work should have been done on or before - December 31, 1921. the owner of the claims shall have up to noon. July 1, 1 922. in which to do his work. In other words, all claims lo cated in 1920, or before, the claimants have until July 1. 1922, in which to do their an nual work. All claims locate ed on and after Jamiary 1, and before noon, July 1. 1921, the claimants have until noon, Ju ly 1, 1922, in which to do their work. All claims located on and after noon, July 1, 1921, the claimants have until July 1, 1 923, in which to do their an nual work. Claim owners are warned to be very careful in complying with the terms of this law, otherwise they may .inadver tently expose their claims to claim jumpers, and thus lose their valuable property rights. Mr. Galbraith asks that this matter be be given the widest publicity possible for the pro tection of claim owners in Arizona. Don't overlook DANGEROUS CURVES AHEAD at the Sul tana Sunday, Feb. 5th.

When he enjoy ed good health, which was up to within the past four or five years, his good, sound, common sense was often sought and could be relied upon by those associated with him in the man agement of our public affairs. Never of an ostentatious nature, but rather of a retiring dispo sition, he was a man who made and retained many friends, and it was these who sorrowfully followed his remains to their last resting place last Wednes day. Calvin . M. Wolfe as born June 20th., 1859, at Grinnell. Iowa, where his parents, Eli Wolfe and Harriet Pere Wolfe lived all of their lives. In 1882. when 23 years of age, he emigrated from Iowa to Ness county, Kansas, where he met and later, in 1885, married Matie Cauf man, daughter of the late Jacob Caufman. As a result of this union and dur ing their residence in Kansus, five children were born to them Roy, Fred, Corbett, Loyd and Frances Harriet who is now Mrs. Ross Z. Towery. In 1896 the family came to Arizona, arriving in Williams on July 5th the day after the great" fire, when the business portion of the town was completely wiped out. . When the family step ped from the train nothing but the smouldering embers of the business houses of the town that was to be their future home greeted them. Here they have lived ever since, and here to Mr. and Mrs. Wolfe were later born four more children : Fay, Campbell, Percy and Leona. Immediately upon his ar rival here Mr. Wolfe entered into the railroad contracting business under the late R. B. Burns, chief engineer of the Santa Fe coast line division. He continued in this business until about 1900, when he pur chased the "Bow B" cattle out fit from the Bennett Cattle Company. He ran this outfit successfully until 1905, when he sold the same to Melick & Wagner, and ' later purchased the "J.

The custom of observing Ar bor Day has become an estab lished and beneficent practice among our people, tending as it does, to increase the beauty of our surroundings and the earn ing power of our unused land. The abundance of sunshine which we enjoy can be employ ed advantageously in tree grow ing, which is always gainful, whether continued to one or more trees set out to beautify and shade the home, or carried to a larger extent to the end that our rugged hills may be re forested. It is of particular importance that advantage be taken of this day to instruct the pupils of our public and private schools in silviculture and the beneficent results of forestation.

Last week the exchange ed itor of the News inserted a clip pin telling of a rulling which declared that passes to theatres and other entertainments were no longer taxable. Thehead ing of the article was a bit mis leadingfor it read "Luxury Tax Abolished". The-luxury - tax is not abolished except in the case of free passes. Mr.-Reese of the Sultana was put to con siderable inconvenience and some expense as a result of the misreading of the article by many, people. The News hastens to clear up the misim pression created. " However there is another angle to the matter. If you do not believe that everyone in town is watching the News, ask Mr. Reese. If one changes an olf to read "It is better played and lost than i have played a all", one express es the feelinor exactly that the Williams High School girls have about the game at Pres--cott last Saturday night' for this is the first time that the girls teams from the two towns have ever met. The "Badgerettes" have a good team as they should because of the schools large enrollment. They have a large group of players to choose from, but even with this decided advantage the local girls expect tovtake the "badge" from "bagerette" when they visit 'Williams on or about March third. The boys game proved a sur prise for the Badgers for their prey was not as easy to swallow as they had supposed and even though the Williams five didn't succeed in tying the animal s tail" they gave it quite a severe twist and expect to put : on a few finishing twists when the game is returned February 17. Prescott proved themselves good winners by entertaining both teams with a properly chaperoned "Paul Jones" atibe "Owl", after the games where "the sorrow of defeat was soon forgot". Those making the trip were : Miss Pauline Jones, Miss Lillian Lonergan, Edna Edwards, Olive Mitchell, Margaret Duffield.
