The fondness of some of
the local "bohoys" for that
great American game poker,
gives rise to manya friendly
wifely admonition. One
lady, complaining of her
husbands nightly attendance
at the game, said: "why. I
believe if you were to stay
home two nights in succes
sion I would fall over dead."
Says friend husband, "You
need'nt try to bribe me that
way."
NOTICE OF MEETING
September 17, 1921
Pursuant to call the Board of Super
visors, of Navajo County, met this day
in special session. All of the members
of the Board and the Clerk were pres
ent.
The meeting was called for the pur
pose of reconsidering the location of a
part of the proposed Winslow, Keams
Canyon road, and a delegation of tax
payers from Winslow, together with
Mr. Daniels, Indian Agent from Keams
Canyon, were present and presented
theii views as to the most feasible
route to follow.
After hearing the hcnorable delega
tion, the Board decided to appoint new
viewers to inspect the proposed route,
and the Highway Commission were ac-
ordingly notified to let no new con
tracts on the said highway until the
matter is adjusted.
The matter of the proposed change
has been pending for some time and
viewers have been appointed to view
out the road several times, the latest
report being that of a board of viewers
under date of Sept. 7, 1922 which, how
ever, did not reach this office until af
ter the date of this minute. This board
of viewers disapproved any changes in
the roads as originally approved, with
the exception, if feasible, to change
the line west, north of Cedar Springs
in order to make connections with the
new Keams Canyon road as near as
possible.
There appearing to be no further
business upon motion duly carried the
Board adjourned.

In Bavaria, before the war at least,
tMere were all sorts of kindly little
celebrations and other things which
made life friendlier and more pleasant.
If an employee had remained in the
same place for five, seven, ten years,
etc., his employer frequently gave him
a'Sert of little Jubilee celebration. Nor
did the employees, forget the chief!

Standard English Pound.
The original English pound was de
rived from the weight of 7,680 grains
of wheat taken from the middle of the
ears and well dried. This remained
the standard from the time of William
the Conqueror to the time of Henry
VITI, in whose reign the avoirdupois
pound of 7,000 grains came into use.
This was established as the standard
pound during the reign of Queen Eliz
abeth and has been continued to the
present day. "

Continued from page 2.
wages and working conditions of railroad employes shall
be readjusted downward as in other industry, and that
working agreement which permit railroad employes to
draw pay when not actually working, or fifty per cent
more than their present high rate for all time after eight
hours, shall be cancelled.
The public is watching closely the attitude of the U.
S. Railroad Labor Board. If this Board takes the neces
sary action in revising wages and in eliminating from
working agreements provisions which permitted such
abuses as overtime after the first eight hours at time and
a half whether sleeping or working, the public will sus
tain it. If it fails, the public will not only condemn it
but very probably wipe it out.
The people will not be trifled with either by railroad
employes or the Labor Board. They will not be deterred,
as in the days of the Adamson fiasco, by threats of a
strike. In the first place there never was abetter time
to clean house. The country is filled with idle men and
there will be plenty to fill all vacancies. In xthe second
place the people, and not a few agitators, are going to
continue to run this country, for the people are paying
the bill.
