FORMERLY THE BENSON PRESS
SON, COC|HISE COUNTY, ARIZONA, JULY 10, 1915
Wright Walker, manager of the
Auditorium and skating rink, has
installed a large &tage to accommo
date traveling show companies.
The stage, While not yet com
pleted, is Well arranged and pre
sents a striking appearance in the
building. The scenery, is elegant
and was all painted by Mr. Walker.
He also did the carpenter work. A
place at the front of the stage has
been constructed for footlights,
which will soon be installed, and
an orchestra pit will also be pro
vided, making the stage arrange
ments strictly up to date.
As soon as the stage and acces-
Cries are completed; it is the inten
tion of Mr. Walker to present a
show of probably a series of show?.
The house will also be open to
good traveling companies, and it is
very probable that Benson will
soon become a regular stopping
point for traveling Shows and give
the people an opportunity bt see
ing a better class of entertainments
than in the past.

The following article, from the
El Paso Herald, records the trip
made by a tourist over the Sunset
Short Line, the route following the
Southern Pacific railroad between
Lordsburg, N. M,, and Vail station,
about thirty miles west of Benson.
The log was made froth west to
east. The article says:
W. J. Rand thinks that the new
“Southern Pacific between
Lordsburg and Tucson is going to
Lake mtich automobile travel away
from the Bofderland route, because
it is so much shorter. While the
Borderland is scenically the finest,
the new roiite saves many miles, the
distance from El Paso to Tucson
over the new line being but 218.2
miles as against 271.9 miles by
way of the Borderland.
Mr. Baud drove over the Bor
'■ Jerland from El Paso to California,
but on his return drove from Tuc
son straight through along the
Southern Pacific to Lordsburg over
the “cutsff.’ J He says With the
completion of sofne grading work
now in progress the road will be
fairly good even in wet weather.
“Leaving Tucson at 6 o’clock in
the morning,” he said, “we easily
made Lordsburg by 4 o’clock in
the afternoon, and we stopped en
route at Willcox, Bowie, San Simon
and Steins. We made Derhing by
7 o’olock iff the evening, stopped
over for an hour and a half, and,
eaviug there at 8:30 p. m., were
in El Paso by 1130 in the morning.
This is an average of better than
19 5 miles an hour. This route is
better and shorter by 92.3 miles
than the route around byway of
t Mr. Rand kept a log of the
“cutoff,” which he has Kindly fur
nished the Herald for publication
in the automobile section. Between
El Paso and Lordsburg fie followed
the Borderland, also between Vail
and Tucson, and the Borderland
log maps cover these portions ol
the road. Between Lordsburg and
Vail Mr. Band’s log covers the sit
uation. It appears below, the first
column of figures indicating the
