WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUHXT, ARIZONA FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 1922. No. 21. ED LAKE VALLEY R AHCH OIL STROCEOM R MARSHALL GILSOII TAKES CHICAGO BHlliE Mr. Marshall Gilson, one of Williams' most popular young men, was married to Miss Catherine Booker, of Chicago, on Monday, April 17. Tne knot was tied by Judge J. E. Jones, at the county court house at the hour of 12 :30. M. Thus came to a happy cul mination a romance developed under the inspiring scenes of the world's greatest wonder. Both bride and trroom were em ployed last summer at the little city which overlooks the vast expanses and Master sculptor ings of the Grand Canyon. Mr. Gilson was engaged in -driving an automobile for the Fred Harvey system and while serving in this capacity won the friendship of Miss Booker. This friendship grew to be something deeper and finally culminated in a happy union. Rumor had it that Mr. Gilson and Miss Booker were married last week, but as so frequently j happens, rumor was wrong. Mr. Gilson did visit Miss Book er at Vaughn, N. M., last week, however and while there ar rangements were made for Monday's ceremony. Miss Booker came to Flagstaff Sun day and Mr. Gilson met her there on Monday. The newly married couple left immediate ly for Williams, on No. 9. The groom had endeavored to guard his movements from certain Odd gentlemen, and he thought hehad.been successful until he stepped off the train with his bride. There he was met by a delegation of lodge members who led him with his bride to a "taxi' in waiting. This particular taxi had recent ly seen service as a truck. Along the sides were large signs reading "We Are Newly Married." Marshal was a bit loathe to treat his bride to a ride in this conveyance but the self-appointed, chauffeur, valet and footmen were so insistent that he found it expedient to yield to persuasion. The taxi then set out in a round about way to reach the home of the groom's parents. Perhaps the most startling feature about the taxi was its horn a plain cow bell. The chaffeur seemed to be under the impression that this horn must be blown (?) all the time with such a rapid-moving conveyance. While a very quiet route down the main .streets of the town was picked out, yet it is doubtful if many people of the town failed to note, the arrival of the new home makers. The News has not had an interview with Mrs. Gilson, but we feel certain that while the shock of the first re ception may have taken her Treath away for the moment, he is now assured that the peo ple of Williams are a cordial -warm hearted lot, and that her stay here is going to be made a pleasant one. Mr. and Mrs. Marshal Gil son spent the next few days af ter their arrival in house hunt ing. They experienced some difficulty in locating vacant Tiouses, but were successful in "the end. Congratulations and best wishes. We are o-lnH fr oo Marshal the head of one of our new Williams homes and in be half of the people of Williams we extend a cordial welcome to the beautiful and accomplished "bride. May both enjoy a long and happy life as citizens of our "town. Hemstitching & Picoting At tachment; fits any sewing ma chine; easily. Price $2.50 de livered, with full instructions.

Is a young artist of Chicago who has appeared In some brilliant success. Recently, following an appearance in that, city, the Musical News made the following comment : "Mr. Mixer has presence "and poise. His work has all the buoyancy and ardor of youth. The Zarzyki Mazurka was given a broad treatment and was brilliant in presentment," . . The Biltmore Orchestra was the musical hit of one of the largest Eastern Chautauquas during the past summer. It is more than a popular orchestra for the. reason that it renders many of the most difficult symphonic arrangements which are seldom heard outside of Metropolitan music halls. In addition to Mr. Mixer, the personnel is as follows: Albert Bedsbaw, Australian pianist ; Carl Finkbelner, clarinetist ; Richard Beidel, cellist, and Ben Carswell, cornetist.'

Consequently the entertainments will be giv en at the Odd Fellows hall this year. It is to the interest of the Odd Fellows and the Rebekahs that the chautauqua be made a success financially, and for that reson these orgnizations should be represented in force next Monday night. Every Williams booster is interested in the success of the chautauqua and should be glad to .purchase a ticket for the en tire course when the ticketsell ers stage the very necessary ticket selling campaign. Don't let it be said that Wil liams cannot support a chau tauqua. Williams is on the map to stay and the people of Wil liams do appreciate first class entertainments. Prove it. by buying your share of tickets. Little Miss Barbara Greene" who has been severeiv ill tor. the past week, is now quite ful ly recovered and is acram run ning about her home and nlav- ing like her natural self, much to the relief of her parents and the delight of her playmates.

MEETING Once more at" the usual hour Lodge was called to order in the usual way by njnKla kit -i-ranri a trnnn I v nnmner was in i - - ' - y ;v attendance but there were some i vacancies that will have to be accounted for at the next meet ing. The weekly routine of business was quickly attended to, and for the good of the order the meeting was turned into an experience meeting and say Boy, you would have thot you were way down South in a reg ular Camp meeting. We wont mention any names but some very touching incidents were very cleverly avoided. We are sorry to note that we are about to loose a very faithful member. We are told that on Friday Bro. Geo. Peterson and wife will leave for Los Angeles, and expect to make that their permanent home, but some times folks leave this Burg for good, and then come back. We were very glad to have Bro. Marshall Gilson with us again He thot it possible for him to slip out of Town and get mar ried to the sweetest little girl in New Mexico, and get. back without U3 knowing when they landed m Town, but as you will note in another column, some of the Odd Fellows were at the depot when they arrived on No 9 Tuesday, and with a Taxi too at that. Bro. Marshall came across with the five spot, and in the near future we expect to have SOME FEED Don't forget next Wednesday night, the 103rd anniversary of the Order. Each Odd Fellow bring another member, if you cannot do that bring a Rebec- kah. and we will call it square. We were told that a good Bro. got a wing shot at one O. A. Kirby, out somewhere north of Maine. Good news, Bro. bring in the lad and the treat will be on us. We need him, and the reward is still in effect. Solonge, THE LINK SCRIBE.

MARY GARDEN OPERA TROOP THRU HERE SUN. The Mary Garden theatrical troupe passed thru Williams Sunday in two special trains. There were about fifty mem bers in the troup. At Flag staff the trains stopped for about an hour while" Father Vabre administered Mass to Mary on a specially erected stage. The crown which as sembled to see the noted op eratic sta.- was entertained by a number of selections from the troupe, but Mary Garden did not sing. All who were fortu nate enough to be present de clared the singing a great treat. WILLIAMS GARAGE WILL USE LATEST IN PUMPS The Williams Garage has re cently received one of the new Crouse's Clear Vision gasoline pumps. This pump has a ten gallon glass cylinder in the top from which the gasoline is drawn to serve customers. in this the old leather plunger pump is eliminated and the cus tomer is enabled to see the gas oline that he gets. Messrs. Gilson & Sons expect to have the pump installed and in operation very shortly. Mrs. P. M. Cowbrough Dies At Reinhart Hospital. Mrs. Cowbrough, wife of P. M. Cowbrough, Assistant manager of the-Saginaw & Manistee Lumber Co., died at the Reinhart hospital Thursday night, after an illness of about a week. Mr. Cowbrough will leave with the body for Geneva, Ala. on No. 22, Saturday. The I wui tioc lur several iiu uih . . :n ci 1 i -C i i OJ J A. - J? -i- 1 ""'memory ot the deceased i - . . . Mr. and Mrs. Cowbrouch came to Williams a short time ago, from Leavenworth, Wash ington. The sorrow of the husband is shared by all who had made the acquaintance of Mrs. Cowbrough The News will endeavor to give a fuller account of the life of Mrs. Cowbrough next week .To Phoenix by Auto County Attorney and Mrs. P". M. Gold and children passed thru Williams Thursday en route to Phoenix where they ex pect to remain for about a week. Mr. Gold is a delegate to the National Good Roads convention to be held there next week, and is taking the family along for a little outing. Mr. Judd of the wholesale house of J. H. Mulvern, Phoe nix, was in Williams Thursday. It looks good to see Phoenix wholesale houses soliciting busi ness in Williams. The Slogan, "Buy Arizona products" is right m principal and it is to be hoped that Arizona houses will soon be able to do practically all of the wholesaling m Arizona. FRUIT PERHAPS Those who have fruit tree- of an age for bearing are hop ing that the backward season will prove a blessing to their trees. The consistently cold days and nights have kept the buds from swelling and will cause the trees to bloom so late that it seems probable that the frost will not hurt the fruit as it frequently does here. Enough trees have been planted in Wil liams to make the fruit crop an item of importance nowa days, and it will be of much greater importance in days to come as hundreds of additional fruit trees have been planted during the past two years. Appointed to Reorganize Le prion Post. Charles F. Gunther has been appointed to re-organize the Williams Post of the American Legion. Mr. Gunther is a pop ular and able man and it is an ticipated that the Williams post will soon be one of the most active in the state. Oil was struck on the Miller ranch in Red Lake Valley Wed nesday while Mr. Miller was riitro-incr a wfll Tho nil namo. into f-Vio wppl fmm a coon at- one side. Mr. Miller skimmed the oil off renpafcerl 1 v anrl parh time it ran back in as quickly as at first. Arrangements have been made to collect some of the oil and give it a test to learn if it is indeed petroleum. Considerable excitement has hppn rnnspfi .hur Vii! finH anrl al ready farmers of Red Lake are raising their sights on the value of their farms. One old oil prospector de clares that the formation of the rocks about Red Lake is the same as that in the first Penn sylania field brought in years ago. The usual supposition has been that any oil that might have been in this country would have been burnt out years ago by the volcanic action here, but that is only supposition. Mr. Miller is arranging to carry on further work to determine the source of the oil. It is quite probable that test wells will be started soon to learn .more about the nature of the rocks in the locality. Williams may have an oil boom yet! All. wait with great interest the re sults of tests of the oil. now be ing made. O FOR SALE: draft horses. S. M. Lbr. Co. SCHOOL OPERETTA PLAYS TO CAPACITY HOUSE The Operetta, , "The Pixies" which the children of the Wil liams School presented at the Sultana Thursday night, drew a crowded house. The aud ience assembled expecting to be highly entertained and none " ware disappointed. About one hudred children participat- Cain, assisted by the teachers from the rooms from which the children were chosen, trained 1 1 - i t J 1 A ana airecxea xne emiuren. handsome sum of money was cleared from door receipts and tickets, which will be placed in the school athletic fund. Space will not permit of a detailed account of the per formance altho the perform ance due to the very large cast and the large number of child-, ren who did exceptionally well. Tt must suffice to aav that all did extremely well- much to the satisfaction of loving parents and the delight of all others present. - All the solos and the choruses met with hearty applause. Miss Cain deserves great credit for the success of the production. She has shown quite unusual ability in organizing and training such a large number of children. The Williams Schools are fortunate . in having her services. The costuming of the child ren and the calesthenic drill by the primary grade are deserv ing of special praise. The suc cess of Mrs. Mehl m training the little tots in the calesthen ics is wonderful. The little tots went thru the drill with unison and precision and in exact time to the music which accompanied them. The edi tor would need to study a much longer time than is possible, so near press day, to find adjec tives enough to properly credit the art displayed in the cos tuming of the butterflies, the fairies, the pixies, the goblins. the prince, the queen, ther- witches and last but not least. the unbelievably cunning mon key and the uproariously funny sons of ham . A solo by Miss Harriett Lebsch, who wasnot in the cast, was enthusiastically en cored. A very large part of the citizens of the town witnessed. the performance and those who failed to do so will long regret having been absent.
