A. F. LIVINGSTON HOME
DESTROYED BY FIRE
The farm home of A. F. Livin-;
:gston about two miles south east
of town was burned to the jgro-'
und Monday about two o'clock in
the afternoon. ,
Mr Livingston was .away .at
the time of the fire, having gone,
the E. S. Judy home for a load
of water. Mr E.M. Naranjo and
Mr Texier were on their way to
town and noticed smoke pouring
from the building, but before
.they could reach the house it was
a mass of flames. The cause of
; the fire was probably a spark
from a train, as the house was
.just across from the right of
way and the right direction for
wind to blow sparks toward the
house.
Mr Livingston lost all of "his
house hold goods, bedding etc.
Not a single thing was saved and
he canned no insurance. Several
months ago a spark from a pas
sing train set fire to Tais feed and
barn, and burned them up, this
added to the loss of his home
will be a great loss to him and
is surely worthy of the benevo
lence of the people of the mesa,
to help Mr Livingston to build a
new home as he is getting up in
years and his crop conditions at
present are like all the rest on
the mesa, very poor indeed. Here
is a chance to do some real
HOME MISSIONARY WORK.

Whose Summer
ROY TAKES ANOTHER
FROM MAXWELL
The Roy Ball Team accompanied
by a large bunch of rooters went
to Maxwell last Sunday and trim
med them to a score of 14 to 3.
So far as the Roy team was con
cerned it was simply a hit and
run game, while with Maxwell it
was much different for the best
the team could do was to garner
three hits of f of Berry the Roy
pitcher, who held them at his
mercy at all times. ;
Berry was in the, box for Roy
and Lawrence. Williams was be
hind the bateas Justice had a
mashed finger and was unable to
play, and say. boy, . how -those
balls whizzed from the catcher
to second was sure worth notic
ing, and it was an easy peg fox
Williams. Three hits and a few
errors. besides a lot of foolish-)
ness from the Roy team allowed
three runs for the Maxwell team. I
The Maxwell pitcher was bat-
ted at the will of our players and
about 20 or 25 hits were secured
from him; his support too was
very poor and some of the care
less fumbles by his players were
partly tne cause ot the nume-'

rous runs. One Roy player said
it would hnve been an easy mat
ter to haS made 20 scores as
well as I,; it seemed to be an
off day for Maxwell as they pla
yed far inferior ball to the game
they played in Roy several weeks
ago, however they were not re
enforced as they were on the pre
vious game.
The whole game of Sunday
was loosely played by both sides
and outside of a féw home runs
made by some of the Roy players
the game was void of much inte
rest It was simply a case of the
Roy team having easy picking
and required little effort to win.
A game had' been -scheduled
for Sunday 'afternoon July 30th
on the local diamond, with the
fast ;Mt. Dora team, but on go
ing to press we were adviced
that the same has been cancelled
owing to the inability of the nine
to get here . . Meanwhile Mana

DAM OVER CANADIAN
RIVER IS THE LATEST
PROPOSAL
That is what the people of
Amarillo have been talking about
lately, according to the Dallas
News.': '
Vincent K,, Jones, well-known
civil engineer of Las Vegas, ad
dressed several civic "clubs here
last week and told them the va
lue of enlisting Government aid
in damming the stream.
Mr Jones says figures kept by
railways with bridges over the
Canadian indicate that some sin
gle floods carry enough water to
irrigate 200.000 acres. It is esti
mated that a reservoir placed in
the vicinity of Logan, N. Méx.,
would impound enough water to
irrigate from 300,000 to 1,000,
000 acres, most of which would
lie in the Texas Panhandle.
Secretary of the Interior Fall
is known to be interested in the
proposal.
The Democratic Central Com
mittee is holding an important
meeting in the community hall
this afternoon as we go to press.
HUMAN SKELETON FOUND
ON GEORGE GONZALES
RANCH EAST OF ROY
The bones of a human skeleton
wre discovered on the George
Gonzales ranch about seventeen,
miles north east of Roy last Sun
day a week ago by Alfredo Gon
zales while searching for some
cattle. The bones were scattered
alone an arrova or washout whi-
Ich had been widened by the se
rious flood that visited that com
munity several weeks ago. From
all appearance's the body had
been buried in an old ditch and
covered up. It had been covered
with only a few feet of dirt, and
a peculiarity of the situation
was. that ashes and charcoal we
re found in the dirt where the
skeleton had been burned. The
skull was brought to town Satur
day by Mr Gonzales and the o
ther bones were buried near whe
re they were found. An examina
tion of the skull- shows that it
had been crushed near the right
temple. The high check bones
and the general shape of the
cranium indicated that it was
probably the skeleton of an In
dian, but the condition of the bo
nes showed that they had not
been buried for a great length of
time as the teeth were still all
in good shape and fastened in
the jaws. Those who saw the
skeleton say that it is no doubt
the skeleton of a man of large
build, but the older residents of
the vicinity in which it was
state that no one hzz been mis
sing in that community so far
as they know since the settle
ment which was many years ago
and the place where the discove
ry was made is traveled over
practically every week or so.
, The discovery was made only
a short distance east of the old
store building on ' the Gonzales
ranch and this place had never
I been used as a burial ground, so

VILLAGE CLEAN UP
! BEING PUSHED
The Village dads re pushing
fthe Village Clean Up order whi
ch was announced in the S. A.
a couple of weeks ago. Many re
sidents have heeded the warning:
and made a regular clean-up of
their premises while a few still
are ignoring the order. The dads
have street commissioner Gam
brel at work cleaning up the str
eets and he has already done con
siderable work worthy of men
tion. Those who are lax in clean
ing up their premises will soon,
be visited by the marshall and
then, well wait and see what will
happen.
