Highway Program of Supervisors
Calls for Maintenance of Side
Line Roads to Keep Open the
Main Lanes of Travel
Considerable attention is being
paid to lateral roads oif the main
highway system under a program to
obtain for every part of the county
as much real benefit as possible
under a limited roads appropriation.
Improvement and maintenance of
various roads in the county will be
kept up this fall. Protection of roads
from storm damage will be one of
the chief features of county work by
the supervisors, it was made known
Today Supervisors W. V. Midg
ley, C. C. Stukcy and L. S. Colwcll
will make a trip to the Turkey;
Creek section of the Crown. King
road, to inspect conditions and plan
for improvements that will afford
adequate travel -conditions for the
residents of that sectiqn.
Improvement of the road from
Congress Junction to the Bill Wil
liams highway is contemplated, as a
means of affording a route to this
county for travel coming via Blythc
from California. A concrete dip has
been completed at the Santa Maria
river crossing on the Hillside road,
in preparation for winter travel con
ditions. Improvement of eight miles
on the road to Peeplcs valley and of
two miles on the Stanton road .are
also going forward.
Co-operation of the taxpayers is
proving of help to the board, the
supervisors said yesterday. People
now call up the office to inform, of
bad spots and other ro?d -onditions
in . their districts, so ' v ith the
alertness of county fore and the
board itself, roads arc kepi in- a, state
of repair. Fall weather this jtear has
also been of help in road work, per
mitting continuance of improvements
until late in the season. The county
crews have thus gained a start on
bad winter weather.
The policy of the supervisors, they
explained yesterday, isto sptmd the
road money in such a way as to pro
duce the most efficient results for all
parts of the county. While main
arteries arc not lost sight of, , side
laterals arc receiving more attention
than has been given them by any
previous board..

man formerly interested in mining in
this county, has taken over the Wild
flower, .Old Tiger, and' 'Crown King

ties, at Crown King, it became known
yesterday, and will soon begin, to
operate them.
It will be recalled by old-timers
here that the Old Tiger gained fame
through its silver production', and that
the Crown King was closed downjn
the midst of a dividend-paying period
by litigation which arose between its
owners, ' Harrington, Sheckels.. and
Place. It had paid more than a mil
lion and tquarter dollars in dividends,
and at a time when, according' to
those interested in the property, it
gave the greatest promise of future
profitable operation. . .
A stimulating piece of mining in
formation is that D. M. Locey is
again to become engaged in mming
in this county. His exceptional
energy and staying qualities, in the
opinion of his business associates, as
sure an economical and successful
operation" of these well-known prop
erties. Locey recently looked over
the ground with one of his associ
ates Fred Gerber; and assurance
was given that 'work will at once be
begun in earnest.
Several thousand feet of drifting
has beeiu douef on the three proper-.
ties, and shaft g'nking has been well
carried forward. Thye arc mills at
the Wildflower and the Old Tige.

A tramway connects the Crown King
and the " Wildflower, .where lhillirrg
operations will fbe carried n. A
wagon-road . connects -'"the Crown"

It will -'be gratifying information
to miners -of this county to know
that the famous old mining camp af
Crown King will soon again take on
some of its old-time life and activity.

exact date of which will be an
nounced shortly.

the idea of gettiiig all the law of
ficers of the' state together occasion
ally so that they might become bet
ter acquainted,' thus making it pos
sible to work in greater harmony;
also that they might adopt a uniform
interpretation of such laws as may
present an ambiguous situation; and
that systematic effort -toward im

iately after Mr. Galbraith took office;
and one at Flagstaff in July. Both
meetings were very largely attended.
by both the county attorneys and
their assistants, and it is expected
that the meeting in Nogales in
January will draw a large attendance
from all over the state.

Winter Care of Tires
Outlined for Motorists
If you are going .to put .your car
away for the winter. "there are a few
important rules' to follow if you want
to find your tires in good condition
when springtime comes again, says
the United States Tire company.
The tires should be cleaned thor
oughly to remove oil and grease. If
you want to be especially kind to
your tires, 'remove them from lin
ear, deflate them, wrap them in paper
or cloth and store them in a cool,
dry place away from the sunlight.
If you do not want to go to the
trouble of removing the tires, jack
up the car, deflate the tires, and wrap
them in covers of paper or cloth. Do
not let the car stand on the tires all
winter or you will need a new set
of tires in the spring.
It is essential that tires be deflated.
In cold weather an inflated tire has
a tendency to "set," a condition un
der which the rubber is likely to
break if bent or twisted out of the
position or shape in which it has
stood for a length of time.

true to the instinct of fistiana, de

fought for the chance to do a little

was rather the worse for wear at the

which a educated guy might call
fortuitous intervened and Tanner
