Looks Like a Mulhatton Story.
The reported discovery of a mam
moth underground city of an an
cient race in the Grand Canyon,
seems to be a splendid piece of
imagination sent out by some Mul

in this section of Arizona knows
anything of it and it would be just
possible that some one at the Grand
Canyon would have been informed
of it if an actual discovery had been
made. The man who wrote up the
find certainly had to dig some for
the details and was wise in locating
the entrance at a point on a sheer

Sanford's Chapter of Accidents.
Al Sanford, the Mormon Lake
cowman; met with a series of mis
haps last week while out with his
outfit. He was first thrown from
his wagon injuring his arm until
it was useles for a day. He went
into camp and lost his horses and
while out hunting them in the
morning a heavy wind came up and
blew sparks in to his bed from the
camp fire. "When he got back to
camp two rifles were , .destroyed and
most of his bedding'gone. He at
temped to save a sack of cartridges
under his pillow and just managed
to get hold of it, when the whole
bunch began cracking and blew the
remainder of the bed into rags and
loose feathers. It seemed to be Old
Man Accident's busy day and he
put most of his time in around San
ford's camp. Really it wa3 almost
sufficient to make one fuss at his

I COMPANY INSPECTED
Local Soldiers Stand Regular Army
Inspection Monday Night An En-'
joyable Dance Followed.
Company I was inspected Monday
night evening at McMillan's hall
by Captain Bigelow of the 8th U.
S. Cavalry. The inspection was a
rigid and comlete one which not
only included a clean gun and drill,
but dipped into the haversack and
blanket roll to ascertain whether
there was a complete kit from extra
sox to to the regulation five tent
The boys put up a fine appearance
and showed that they had been re
ceiving plenty of wholesome atten
tion from Capt. Hochderffer since
he took hold of the company. The
inspection was witnessed by a
hundred people or more. At the
conclusion of the ceremony of in
spection, all joined in with th"
soldier boys and proceeded to make
merry until some where near morn
ing. Music for the dance was sup
plied by thcRudd orchestra.
Company I is an intsitution that
the people of Flagtsaff may well be
proud of. They are a gentlemanly
lot of young men who take pride in
making the company the best, in
the reigment and are entitled to

WANT AUTOMOBILE ROAD
Business Men of Flagstaff Interested
Iu Building New Auto Road to Grand
Canyon for Summer visitors.
There is n movement now on
foot to build a good automobile
road from Flagstaff to the Grand
Canyon as an extra inducement for
southern nutomobilists who wish to
spend the summer in the cool
breezes of the north, and there
promises to be a greater number
this year than ever before. Sub
scription lists will be circulated
soon among those interested for the
purpose of raising a special fund
and the board of supervisors will
also be asked to spend a goodly
portion of the Forest Service fund
received to aid the project.
At Prescott and Phoenix the good
roads.associations are much inter
ested in securing a good highway
through the territory to the north,
via Pre.scott, Camp Verde and to
the Grand Canyon. Each county
will bear the expense incurred in
the county but may have the assis
tance of the territorial engineer in
laying them out and properly con
structing and maintaining them.
Under the new road law a county
may leyey ten cents oh the one
hundred dollars for permanent or
territorial road purposes when it
is completed it will be maintained
by the territory.
The old "road overseer" system
was abolished and a county superin
tendent of road3 created which
office may be filled by the county
surveyor, if desired. the ap
pointment being made by the board
of suvpervisors. There are hun
dreds of nutos in Tucson, Bisbce,
Phoenix and other southern cities,
aside from machines that would be
shipped in from the east to tour
Arizona, which would take ad
vantage of this magnificent stretch
of highway if it is completed.
' The road from Flagstaff to the
Grand Canyon could be built for a
comparatively small expense and
would be of incalculable benefit to
