E II iTT In II ,Ti Volume 30 WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUNTY, ARIZONA FRIDAY. MARCH 17, 1922. NO. 16. Teritori mm GET TEN TREES FREE ' : BEAUTIFY YOUR HOME I. O. O. F. DOINGS Mr. T. H. Cureton has 1000 seeding box elder shade trees which he offers to the people of Williams and vicinity, free of charge, for use in beautifying their homes and the town. These trees stand from three feet to four feet high and will be ready for planting early in April. The only requirement it that those taking trees shall agree to plant and care for them. No more than ten trees will be alloted to any per son until all have been given ' an opportunity to get some of them. Those desiring to avail . themselves of the opportunity should call at Mr. Cureton's ranch on Saturday, April 1st, or at some time arrange with Mr. Cureton. 1 The box elder has been given a trial in this climate and has been found to grow rapidly and hardily. It is considered by most people who have tried it, to be the best shade tree f pr the locality that has yet been intro duced here. Those who plant a few of these trees this year will add materially to the beau- j ty and indirectly to the prosper-' Sty of Wiliams in the future. Planting trees is a . good deal like putting money in a savings account. You invest your spare hours in the trees now and in the future you reap an nual dvidends of pleasure and satisfaction from having done so. The reward is amnle nav The regular meeting was held on Wednesday night, and much business was transacted. We are glad to report a full house. Among other things it was found that we had not been properly informed as to the number of delegates that we were entitled to. It appears that we have the right to send two delegates to the Grand Lodge, and Bro. Harry McDou- gall was elected with Bro. Carl LaSalle as alternate. We would request of the Grand Lodge that they hold no night meet ings, as Bro. Harry will have his hands full with other and more (pressing) engagements every night while m Phoenix. Bro. Tom Mc Williams was married last Monday to. Miss Lena Bonner, at Flagstaff. The bride is a fine girl we are told and has many friends. Tom do nated $5.00 to the Lodge. In last week's News we told you that there was some sort of an entertainment under way and the style of program would be forthcoming at an early date. We had the entertain ment.

Finally some one phoned that Tom and a beautiful young lady were seen leaving Williams on the train going east early Monday morn ing.

Miss Hoxworth came ut from Phoenix Monday night- and Mr. Markeski joined her at Flagstaff on Tuesdaj'-. It was their plan to be married by one of the Flagstaff ministers' but it chanced that neither of these was in Flagstaff on that day. Disappointed in this, the -bride and groom proceeded to Judge J.'E. Jones who tied the knot for them. Miss Hoxworth is well known in Williams from the two sum mers which she has spent here recently. She is also well known, in Flagstaff where she lived for three years. . Asked what she considered her home. she replied "Arizona". She is a bright cheerful young woman well liked by all who know her. Williams is delighted to wel come her as Mrs. Markeski. Mr. R. C. Markeski has pre sided over the ; Fred Harvey News Stand for the past four' years long enough to give him rank as an old resident, in .i town of changing population like Williams. . As manager of the News stand he has made a host of friends and all are hop ing that he and his bride will make Williams their permanent home. .- Congratulations and best wishes.

We had a nice meeting and enter tainment. Bro. Nixon has been away for several meetings and gave us an interesting talk on his visits to other lodges. Bro. Frank Udine had some good things to say of the lodge which all the brothers present, will remember for a long time. Bro. Mitchell had an appetiz ing story to tell. All at once Bro. Udine told the boys he had a treat waiting for their deli cate appetites. He presented us with an oyster feed after which we all went home feeling fine.
