Woods departed Wednesday for the rural districts. They said they were going fishing, but there was a sort of a wet stuff in their load that is more often used as bait for voters than for fish. Several loads of people passed through town this week returning from the conference at St. Joseph. Among them were noted Olaf Lar son and family and Mrs. Nellie Hunt and Pearl Gibsou, daughters of our townswoman, Mrs. Louisa Cross. SALE!

Sheriff Wattron went to Winslow Thursday on business. i Col. lieorge Atterbury of W inslow ' spent Thursday in the county seat. Rev. P. A. Simpkins held services Thursday eveuing which were well attended. Mr. James Carrigan, formerly of Winslow, has beeu spending the week in town. All indications point to a large aud successful term of school this year. The school opens on Monday nxt. If the people will furnish the pupils the capable teachers and trustees will do the rest. Mrs. C. F. Putnam and her son Israel came in from Pleasant Valley Thursday evening. Israel will re main here and attend school during the winter. Mrs. Putnam goes to Mesa before returning to her moun tain home. C. R. Johnson returned to Salt Lake City Tuesday uisht. Mr. Johnson has spent sometime in this territory in special mission work for the .Latter Day Saints, tie is a gen ial, able young man and made many friends for himself and his a cause. Thursday morning Mr. Joseph W. Smith, son of Jesse N. . Smith of Snowflake, returned from his mis sionary labors in England on behalf of the Latter Day Saints. He was met here by his brother, Silas D. Smith, aud proceeded to Snowflake. A man named Dunn was fined 50 in Winslow Tuesday for an assault upon his mistress. He couldn't ''raise the wind" and King Henley brought the pugilistic individual to the county seat, and turned him over to the tender mercies of Sheriff Wattron. We desire to call attention to the advertisement of the Navajo county bank at Winslow, to be found iu this issue. This is the only bank in the county and should have the patrou age of local depositors. Every dol lar kept and spent at home is a dis tinct advantage to the community. C. O. Howe, general manager of the Wabash Cattle company, was iu town several days this week making a large shipment of cattle for his company. He was obliged to wait several days, the railroad company refusing to receive the shipment until its tracks were repaired from the damage done by washouts. The case of the Haldeman broth ers is again exciting attention. Gov. Murphy has been to Tombstone aud will review the entire case next week. If thise men should ulti mately be hanged there will be no room for the accusation that their case has not received due considera tion from the authorities. Heavy rains are reported from all parts of the Southwest. The Santa Fe Pacific has been struggling with washouts, trains from the east boing much delayed on that account. Rio Puerco and the Little Colorado have been running high, and if Jack Frost will keep his chilly fingers off vege tation for a few weeks stockmen will have a good winter in spite of the long drouth this summer. The business men are stocking up for the fall trade, which is expected to be as large as usual. Wit h an other general merchandise storr, Holbrook is rapidly assuming the proportions of a commercial center, and the volume of business done here is steadily on the increase. Our merchants are all progressive and up-to-date aud richly deserve the fine country trade they enjoy. On account of the Democratic territorial convention September 10 and H the Santa Fe will sell round trip tickets to Ash Forks for one fare, good till September 17. Excur sion tickets will lie sold from Ash Forks to Phoenix and return for ?11 80 For Republican convention September 24, t he same rates will prevail on September 22 and 23; tickets good returning till the 29th. The high water called forth the latent energies of our citizens this week and the rip-rap work on t he river bank was strengthened and im proved. The condition of the bank at that point makes every Hood a serious menace to the existence of all the property on the south side of the track and a considerable expense to property ownem. Not until the current is turned over against the south bank will the town be free from danger. NEIGHBORING NEWS ;j Whiteriver. These are m!on-colic days.

We have been unable to obtain any news from the Democratic ter ritorial convention subsequent to the first day's proceedings. That day, however, furnished excitement enough to stir the pulse of a blase Englishman or extort a yell from the most plegmatic Dutchman. 1. G. Norris of Prescott distin guished himself in the role of the champion strong man, and at one time it took t he united efforts of the count3r aud city oflicers to prevent a free light. At the close of the day no semblance of an agreement had been reached between the Smith Wilson factions. There were two temporary chairmen and nothing could be done without the consent of both. It's the greatest political ruction the territory ever saw and one calculated to fill the Repub lican heart wit h glee. No prediction can be made of the outcome. ONE MILLION DOLLARS Santa Fe Will Spend That Sum for New Equipment by November 1 .

I suffered with- diarrhoea for a long time and thought I was past being cured. I had spent much time and money and sutfernd so much misery that I had almost de cided to give up all hopes hopes of recovery and await the result, but noticing the advertisement of Cham berlain's Colic, Cholora and.
