proved in health and appearance.
She was accompanied by Mrs. Put
nam. Owiugto over-crowding and bad
ventilation, the air of the school
room is often impure, and teachers
and pupils frequently suffer from
lung and throat troubles. To all
such we would say, try Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. For coughs,
colds, weak lungs and bronchial
trouples no other remedy can com
pare with it. Says A. C. Freed,
superintendent of schools. Prairie
Depot, Ohio: "Having some knowl
e ige of the efficacyof Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy, I havo no hesitancy
in recommending it to all who suffer
from coughs, lung troubles, etc."

Among the candidates for the leg
islature on the republican ticket in
Maricopa county we notice the
name of J. W. Benham. "Will
Benham" as every one here knows
him by, came to this county in 1883
and for nearly twelve years was iden
tilled with the cattle business here,
being a partner with Hon. W. C.
Barues in the Esperanza Cattle com
pany, la 1892 Governor Murphy
appointed him a member of the
Livestock Sanitary Boaid which
position he filled for several years
with great credit to himself and th .
industry he represented. Later, on
he removed to Phoenix, where he
and Mr. Barnes established a very
successful wood and coal busines
which Mr. Benham now manages.
He is an act ive, enterprising young
republican, full of vigor and en
thusiasm, and will make his mark
as a member of the next legislature,
and especially prove a valuable man
to the live stock interests of the
territory. The cattlemen of Mari
copa county should support him
loyally, and we predict his election
by a healthy majority. None will
be more pleased over his election
than his many friends in this end
of the territory.

The Petrified Forest Reserve.
The vigorous efforts, that have
been put forth by some of the Hol
brook citizens, notably Messrs. Zuck
and Barnes, to have the national
government set apart the Petrified
Forest near this place as a national
park is at last bearing fruit. Mr.
W. C. Barnes this week received a
communication from Forest Super
intendent Benedict asking for fur
ther information as to the amount
of land necessary to eover entire
park and other data necessary for
the carrying out of the national
park idea, which Mr. Barnes answer-
as fully as possible. It is worth
while to say that one year ago Gov
ernor Murphy succeeded in having
the land around tho forest with
drawn from entry under the land
laws and last year Governor Mur
phy and Mr. Barnes called on Com
missioner Herman in Washington,
and had a long interview with him
on the subject. It is a matter of
congratulation that this move is at

A Move In The Right Direction.
The business men of Holbrook
have after considerable discussion
and agitation on Sunday closing
agreed that after the first Sunday in
November the stores will be closed
on Sundays, and no goods of any
kind will be sold whatever. The
businessmen and their clerks who
are confined to their places of busi
ness from 15 to 18 hours out of
twenty-four, feel the need of of hav
ing one day in the week for rest and
recreation. Furthermore the cus
toms of the frontier days are gradu
disappearing through the influences
of more permanent established so
ciety. With the advent of church
services and Sunday school in town
it is proper that the business ele
ment should adopt the regulations
practiced elswhere in every well es
tablished and orderly community,
and thereby assist in giving the Sab
bath day its proper significance as
recogoized thrrughout the Chris
tian world. It is to be hoped that
people throughout this section will
cheerfully conform to the new order
of things and assist the businessmen
iu their laudible efforts in this direc
tion. It will result in an increase
