WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUKTT, ARIZONA FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1922.
Volume 30 NO. IS. ANOTHER LION HUNT Lion stories, like fish stories must be substantiated by the catch. We have lost interest in those that get away. But when E. W. (Mike) Foster and Roy Nagiller returned from the chase the other day with a specimen measuring eight feet and six inches from tip to tip we gathered around for the inter esting details. Here's the way it happened. Several days ago these two experienced hunters followed by their trusty pack turned their faces toward the cold and wind swept peak of Mount Sit greave where rumor led them to believe a lion of unusual size made its lair. Working their -way up the rough mountainside the eager dogs, keen with the excitement of a coming chase covered ev ery inch of the ground. Swing ing to the right they crossed the summit and -were taking in the north slope when suddenly Queen, the two year old Red bone from the well known kennels of Wm. Hoehgraef call ed the pack to her heels. Off they went -down the rocky mountain aide. From boulder to boulder, log to log they clung tenacously to the trail of the fleeing lion. For more than five weary miles they went, the men urgmg their, steaming liorses in mad pursuit. It 1 seemed to e only a matter of moments anrtil the dogs would tree. But the wiley cat, wise in the ways of the hunt made for a larjre field of ice and frozen snow and here, doubling and turning in a last frantic ef fort tried to confuse the closly pressing pack. At first it seemed that this ruse had been successful. The dogs hesi tated, circled backtracked rush ing here -and there in theiref fort to pick up the" lost trail. At the very moment when the sorely disappointed men were tempted to call the confused dogs from the search the quivering sensitive nose of Old Queen turned chaos into order. Carefully, slowly: step by step she unraveled the maze of tangled tracks the impatient pack close at her heels. Fin ally, with a triumphant bark she struck the fresh trail in the soft snow beyond. Amid a fearful din of bayinsr throats they were off again. The hunt ers, close behind knew that the end of the chase was close at hand for now the dogs were close upon the doomed lion running by sight alone. A few minutes later. aroi"-"i the shoulder of a high cliff they came upon tne aos gathered under a tall pine. pHov-e them the big cat snarled, show ing his white fangs. Be it said that these ferocious mouth ings did not disturb the calm and collected Nagiller who raised his rifle and with Un erring aim brought the furry monster crashing to the trround. The waiting dogs leaped to the fray but the razor like claws were powerless, the snapping jaws were still. The great lion of Sitgrave Mountain was dead, the enviable prize of : our proud and lucky friends.

MEETING Williams Lodge number 15 held its regular meeting last Wednesday night.

We Appreciate What Our Neighbors Have Done For Us. Every farmer in Coconino County should become a boost er for the Industrial Congress In its efforts to place "Arizona Products First" it has rendered the farmers a service of far reaching proportions. It has helped our marketing associat ion in its efforts to market our potatoes. ' It has discouraged the shipping in of outside po tatoes and has encouraged the people of the south to use our potatoes in preference to the outside product. It has en couraged the dealers of the south to handle our potatoes to the limit of their capacity. These activities of the Indus trial Congress have borne fruit in every instance. Practically every grocer in Phoenix is handling our potatoes, and most of these stores are becoming advocates of our product. Tne Maricopa County Farm Bureau has rendered us services equal to or greater than the Industrial Congress. Many of its mem bers use no potatoes but ours and urge their neighbors to do likewise. What have we done to show our appreciation for these ser vices of our neighbors in the south? Are we using Arizona butter, milk, jam, fruits, sweet poatoes, lettuce, and other An zona products? If every farm- er m Coconino Countv will call UDon his CTOcer for Arizona proaucts, ana insist tnat we have the Arizona product we can repay our neighbors for the splendid services they have ren dered us. Why should you use outside farm products and expect the people of the south to use our potatoes? Why should your grocer buy his fruits, vegetables, dairy pro ducts, jams etc. from other states when we have an overage in our own state? We are in sisting that the people of the south use our potatoes and they are doing it. They have the same right to insist that we use their products ; are we doing it? This appeal should not be confined to the agricultural class alone, every true citizen r i Arizona should feel the justness of the cause. If the farmer is prosperous there will be plenty of money ' in circulation and jobs for us all. If the pota toes of Coconino County rot in the cellars ' because the people of the south use outside pota toes, and if the products of the southern field waste for want of a market i while we use the same products from other states every citizen of Arizona will suffer. It is to the ladies es pecially that we bring this im portant matter. It is thej'-, as a rule, who purchase the family groceries. If each house -wife will insist upon having the Ari zona product the dealers must fall in line. With the help of the Maricopa County Farm Bureau and the Agricultural Agent for Maricopa County our Marketing Association succeed ed in its appeal to the ladies of Phoenix, to use our potatoes. Thus was the demand created which made the marketing of our potatoes possible. We be lieve our wives are as patriotic as the ladies of Salt River Val ley. Coconino Farm Bureau.

FOR SALE: Hallet and Davis piano, mahogany case, coat $550 used 3 years, in excellent condition, $225. Phone 35. Phoenix, Mar. 10. Only the ragman could keep warm dur ing the winter m Armenia. This was proved by the recent ex periences ,of a group of Near East Relief workers in Erivan, capital of the Armenian repub lic and the center of the Trans- Caucasian famine belt; as re lated in stories that have just been received at national relief headquarters in New York. Fuel is scarce m Erivan, al most as scarce as food. There is no coal and wood must be brought over the war-scarred railroad for miles. When the relief workers attempted to buy enought wood for the vast sys- em of orphanages in the city they found few sellers when rubles, worth about a dollar for three million, were offered in exchange. "No one wanted the money , relates one of the workers. "They couldn't buy anything and they were not substantial enough to make a good fire. So we were compelled to look about for a more attractive medium of exchange. A ship ment of old clothes, discarded as useless in America had just arrived. Now next to food, clothing is the most sought after luxury in Armenia. So we of fered clothes for wood. Enough big logs can be obtained for a battered old overcoat to keep the orphanage fires burning for sometime." J. M. Bustillos opended his grocery store on Bill Williams Avenue, on Wednesday. He has the store in nice shape and his goods make a pleasing dis play. He is expecting more Broods next week and will soon have a complete line. He ex pects to keep fresh meats also, as soon as he can get his fixtures installed. BIG HUNTER, MILLER, NOW IN FLAGSTAFF Chas. A. Miller, U. S. Biologi cal hunter, arrived in Flagstaff the beginning of the week from the south-eastern part of the state. ; Mr. Miller expects to he lo cated here permanently in Co conino County. This shouldl be good news to the stockmen of this section as we have an oversupply of predatory ani mals in and around the County. The well known hunter left Wednesday morning for the east side of the San Francisco Peaks as cowmen have report ed many lions roaming around in that neighborhood in the past few days. Mr. Miller hunts almost en tirely with dogs. It should be of interest to nature lovers to know that Mr. Miller uses a full blooded lobo wolf as one of his lead dogs. He captured this wolf when a puppy two weeks old and has successfully domesticated him. His -wild nature gives him far greater instinct than the ordi nary dog. Mr. Miller expects to be gone for about three weeks. While in town he has been stayincr at 'the Ranch House. 16 West Birch street, and has retained a. room there permanently. 1 ogetner with his dogs and horses and wolf, Mr. Miller brought into town five lions four bobcats and three coyote skins as the result of his prowess as a hunter while to this place. - N. A. Leader Temperatures have been suf ficiently high to cause a marked decrease in the snow cover on the major grazing areas of the state. Only two inches cover the ground in the Grand Can yon section where last week six. inches were reported. Three mci ches at Williams have disap peared and the remains of drifts only appear in the vicinity of b lagstaff. The range m the southern part of the state where there has been little precipitat ion in many weeks is getting very dry; there was a good rain at Thacther, the first of import ance since late in January, but the range was affected very little by it. The water supply in the Pinto secien is reported as getting low and stock be coming thin. The range in the vicinity of Fr. Apache is much improved, water plentiful and cattle good. Under the in fluence of drying winds roads in the northern part of the state- are improving and passable ex cept in short sections in the tim ber. From coast to coast Tanlac is know and honored and millions have taken it and pronounced it the greatest medicine of all times. Williams Drug Co.
