had him say the words that ma
de them man and wife. Im media
teíy after the ceremony they re
turned to Roy or rather started
to and of course he car had to
get stuck in a mud hole, but love
laughs at such trivial things as
a stuck car, and after several
hours work the car was extrica
ted and the happy couple came
on to Roy and which place they
will make their future home.
The groom, Mr Gambrel is one
of Roy's young men and was a
student of the Roy schools du
ring the 1920-21 term. He is the
youngest child of Mr and Mrs
J. G. Gambrel of this place and
an exempliary young man .
The bride is the second eldest
daughter of Mr and Mrs John
Emerson of Dawson, but former
ly of the Pleasant View neigh
borhood. For the past two years
she has been living with her gra
ndparents Mrand Mrs B.F. Erne
rson of this place and was one
of the students of the Roy Public
Schools the past year and is one
of the prominent young ladies of
the town.
The Spanish American extends
congratulations to the happy yo
ung couple and wishes them all
the joys that go to make life
worth while.
"' een received in Roy
'';- nderson formerly of
mis place but now of LaPorte,
Ind, and Miss Lillian Cavender of
that place were quietly married
at La Porte, Ind on Saturday eve
ning June 17th.
Mr Anderson has spent the
greater portion of his life in Roy
or on the farm near this place,
having comento New Mexico fr
om Indiana when a mere child
and received his education in the
Roy schools . Three years ago he
joined the U.S. Army and ser
ved his enlistment and' received
an honorable discharge and after
his return home went to LaPorte
to visit his father and brother
and while there secured a posi
tion at Michigan City and later
with the Rumley people at La
Porte and which place he met
his bride.
Mrs. Anderson is one of the
popular ladies of LaPorte and we
are sure that Lysle has chosen
wisely in taking for himself this
young lady who will be his fu
ture helpmate thru life's long
journey. We extend to this yo
ung couple all the joys of life and
hope their fondest ambitions
may be realized.

News was received' in Roy
Saturday that James Lloyd
was severely injured on the pre
ceding day while assisting She
riff in removing a pump from
his well on the racnh below the
David hill. The pipe had been
practically all removed from the
well except one joint and this
was being hoisted and was prac
tically out when the chain slip
ped which was being used as a
hoist, letting the pipe drop and
as it went down it caught on the
end of a lever with which they
had been lifting the pipe with
and caused the pole to fly up str
iking Mr Lloyd under the chin
and arm and knocking him seve
ral feet in the air and leaving
him in an unconcious condition .
Dr Daniels was hastily summo
ned and after an . examination
found that the lower jaw was
badly bruised and the flesh torn
from the bones with several te-,
eth knocked loose. He was re
moved to his home the followinb
day and became concious and at
present is reported slowly reco
vering altho he is badly bruised
and' shaken up, he will be laid up
from work for several weeks .

Encarnación Lucero came to
town last Thursday evening with
the tooth of a giant mastadon
which his son Vivian had found
in the Sabino canyon about 17
miles northeast of Roy. . .Young
Lucera was walking along, the
banks of the Sabino lasí Wednes
day noting the damage that had
teen; done by the. recent, flood
in that vicinity when accident
y noticed something resembling
a giant tusk protruding from
the gravel bank which had been
partly washed away hy the re
cent flood v. After careful inves
tigation he found it to be a tusk
f a huge matitadon, and with the
assistance of some neighbor boys
he tunneled into the bank and
was successful in removing the
tusk,, or rather a part of it, as
f 3 the complete remains were
,roken up during the process of
x nearthing them . He also found
i mammoth teeth that weigh-
c .1 about twelve pounds each and
ere about eight by five inches,
i size . Portions of the skull of
t ie huge animal were also un
c irthed but the complete recov
ery of the remains was made im
Í ossible owing to the caving in
cf the bank.
The tusk partly decayed is 10
Í3et and four inches long anda
! out nine inches in diameter at
the largest place. It appears that
a portion of the outer covering
( f the tusk has decayed or re
l ioved From the curvature of the
tusk one would árrive at the
conclusion that the full length
will measure over fifteen feet
vhen it is finally unearthed, The
remains were found on a lime
ctone cliff covered by several
feet of gravel, sand and dirt. In
order to remove the balance of
the skeleton it will be necessary
í to move several hundred tons of
dirt and it wil cost a great dóal
of money to make complete exca
vations' The Smithsonian Insti
tute has been notified of the dis
covery.. From the surroundings, about
it would appear that the balance
of the skeleton lies on the bed
rock cliff under the large depos-
: its of gravel and it will take sev
jeral days to make a full invest
ligation. A number of Roy people went
out to Sabino Saturday morning
and looked over the situation and
also took several pictures of the
find. The boys in digging out
the remains used a pick and by
so doing broke the tusk in sever
al places A portion of it Í3 now
at the Omefiashome and the bal
anco at the Lucero place near the
scene of the discovery. The disco
very was made a few hundred
feci east of the Sabino school
house on the south bank cf the
creek and the email end of the
tusk was washed from the bluff
I by the flood of two weeks' ago.
The Mastadon was a species of
the elephant and is now extinct .
Fossil remains occur in America
as late as the Post-Pliocene per-
iiod. The mastadon closely re
sembled existing species of elep
hants differing with them main
ly in the formation of the teeth .
They had .a vaulted and cellular I
skull, large ' tusks and a heavy i
íorm. Skeletons found m vari
ous portions of North America
indicate they were about twelve
feet high and from eighteen to
twenty feet long, with tusks that
ranged from eight to ten feet
in length..
From the portions of the fossil
discovered at Sabino creek it ap
pears that the one discovered
there is probably among the lar
gest ever found in America.
It is probable that a collection
will be taken -up and men and
teams hired to scrape away the
bank in order to determine if the
complete skeletton cannot be un
earthed under the bank beyond
where the present tunnel has
been made .
