We employed a man who was higly recommended, gave him a free . hand with the ', Linograph machine, paid him good wages and paid them promptly. His per sonal troubles evidently af fected his ability to spell, as witness the machine stuff, and he up and quit in the middle of the week, leaving the proofs uncorrected. The machine is in good running order and we have employed another man who will, we hope be here in time to set up the paper next week. o- INDUSTRIAL WEEK HUGE SUCCESS Chas. Jennings returned early this week from Phoe nix. The industrial week was a big success, both from the standpoint of attendance and of exhibits. Especially striking was the Armistice Day parade. Ex-service men took a very prominent art, as was right. The oats were most artistic,! and in size the parade ex ceeded anything ever seen in the Capitol city, taking two and one half hours to pass a given point. The exhibition was held j in the heart of the city; to! the unthinking person it was an eyeopener. One could hardly realise that such div ersification in manufacture was within the State. Those who have been so fortunate as to attend have' a very healthy respect for Arizona as a manufacturing State. The auto races were per haDs the best feature, at least the most exciting. A worlds record for the mile on a dirt track by Ralph De Palma, 45 and 1 5 seconds resulted from the automo bile hounds ' brush with death, and the motorcycle daredevil proceeded to bust things wide open with a re cord of 44. seconds flat, beat ing the recently made re cord by 1 I 5th of a second. Mr. Jennings says that if they have any more auto or motorcycle races, he is cer tainly going to be present, if on crutches. AUTO RACES AT ST- JOHNS THANKSGIVING DAY On the 8th of this month the Auto Club Committee made a definite decision for automobile races at St. Johns on Thanksgiving. Gallup will send at least two cars, Uiava with his Hudson and another whose name is not yet learned will compete with a Stutz. No doubt cars will be enter from al over Apache and Navajo Counties as well. The first prize will be the $500.00, and this wil be the only prize. The en trance fee will be S50.00, Same rules rules will govern as used on Labor Day. No doubt more people will at tend this time than on Labor Day. In addition to the auto races there will be an inters colastic meet between Spring erville, Snowflake and St. Johns. The events will be base ball basket ball and field events. BASKETBALL FLAGSTAFF VS. HOLBROOK GIRLS. Last night the Holbrook girls attempted to retrieve the football teams defeat, but without success, landing on the short end of a 31 - 12 score. Well, we've only started trying! FOOTBALL ACE AND THIMBLE CLUB , On account of the many festivities, mostly sporting, of Armistice week the club posponed its usual meeting. The devotees of the slippery pasteboards will gather this week at the home of Mrs. J. M. Lee. It will be on Fri day. Mrs. J. M. Patterson please note. P. D. Scheck of Grunsfeld Bros., Albuquerque, has been through the district during this week. ' 0 Her Choice The father, who was head of the firm, had been noticing that his on took a certain unofficial interest in his private secretary, The younj? man had recently joined the staff pf the firm to learn the business. - One day the private secretary, a very modest younsr woman, announced to him that his son had proposed to her and that she had accepted him. "Well, I really think you might have seen me first," said ti father. - "I did," she replied 'but I preferred'your son." Chicago Herald and Examiner. Football game of the 11th was a he humdinger. Perhans not as fast as some games played jn these parts. the Normal High school boys were entirely successful iñ sustaining the interest of the spectators. Holbrook lost the toss and kicked ff. From this moment there was ev er an open doubt as to who would score. flagstaff rqpters never waivered in their allegiance, and as events proved, with reason. The Hoi brook Hi girls gave voice to their enthusiasm, but the bys could not score. The one lone touchdown of the game was made on a very cleverly executed forward pass. The signal caller for Flagstaff ordeed a fake play. He received the ball, passed it to his right to the haf, ' and the half threw the ball to te unob structed end. One unconverted touchdown. " When the Holbrook boys had the ball, they cnsistently gained through the line, around the end, and lost the pigskin on forward passes that were fumbed. The light team, Hol brook, outsamed the Normal boys, witnes3 thé six times that the Flag staff team were empelled to call for time out. Two questionable de cisions of the referee prevented our lads frm scoring. Hathorne was away in front of a field of followers when the time-keeper blew the whistle. In football, a play must be completed regardess of time; but the referee terminated the quarter. A foul play on the part of one of the Flagstaff boys was the cause of the umpire blowing his whistle when Arnold Lee was across the goal line. The rules state that the team fouled can take the gain or the penalty; thi?. was disregarded by the referee and the Hi team was given the penalty. However, it was an interesting game, and only a game. We lost, though an argument will develop if one states that the better team won. Flagstaff, 6; Hol brook, 0.

RADFORD. Mr. William A. Radford will answer tjuestions and Give advice FREE OP COST on ail subjects pertaining to the subject of building-, for the readers of this paper. On account of his wide experience as Editor. VAuthor and Manufacturer, be Js, without doobt. the highest authority on all these subjects. Address all inquiries to William A. Radford, No. 1S77 Prairie avenue, Chicago. 111., and only enclose two-cent stamp for reply. Brick is a material that always apr peala to liome builders. Homes of brick are substantial homes homes that are warm In winter and cool In summer. In exterior appearance they cancot be surpassed, for the reason that the various colors of the bricks lend themselves to harmonious con trasts. Another claim to the popu larity of brick Is that the cost of up keep Is low. Herewith Is shown a square brick house, with exterior walls of buff brick. The color Is such that In the Illustration this house might be mis taken for one with a stucco exterior. The wide, open porch Is the principal reason for the fine appearance of this house, but the porch and balcony above It, coupled with the hip roof and dormer windows help considerably. Inside, this Iiouse is well arranged. It contains seven good-sized rooms, i extra rooms by finishing them off, er for storage. The basement extends under all of the house, with the ex ception of the porch projections. Here, of course. Is located the heating plant, the storage rooms for fruits and vegetables and for the winter's supply of fuel. This is one of the least expensive of homes to build, when the number of rooms are considered. It will ac commodate a family of six and even more, and yet the size Is only 30 by 36 feet. All of the bedrooms are of average size, while the first floor rooms are larger than usually is found in homes of this character. The economy In construction and the large number of rooms in the house are secured through the man ner in which the house is designed. A study of the floor plans will show that the walls all are straight there are no "Jogs" in them. Every corner requires extra materials and extra labor, so to get the most for the least cost straight walls are included.

This house is attractive in appearance, conven ient in arrangement and economical to build advantages that will appeal to the common family. During this year home builders In many eitles are going to have to wait their turn. Contractors, material deal ers and material manufacturers all say that the number of homes erected during 1920 will exceed that of any year in the history of the country.

As these two rooms are con nected with a double cased opening the arrangement makes the two rooms available as one for entertainments. Off the dining room at the back is a sun porch, or breakfast porch, which ever the owner prefers to use it for. Adjoining is the kitchen. 10 by 12 feet, with a good-sized pantry adjoining.

The two front rooms are on the corners; one of the rooms opens on the side, while the fourth also' Is a corner room. The sleeping porch is over the. sun parlor or breakfast porch on the first floor. Every room on the second floor has a closet connected with it. while there is an extra one in the hall. This multiplicity of closets provides ample storage space for the large family that this bousa will accommodate. In the attic also is considerable space that may be utilized either for it is mighty good judgment to start In as quickly aa possible. If the new home Is te be occupied this fall. During the selection of the plans. It is a good move to consult the local architect, the contractor, who is ex pected to build the house and the dealer who will furnish the materials. All of these men have had a great deal of .'experience In planning and building homes and will be able to give the prospective owner some good pointers on home planning and the materials to be used. But In any event it Is wise to get started early with the home building project. CAUSE LIBRARIAN TO SMILE Humorous Mlxups in the Titles of Books Are a Matter of Dally Occurrence. Tne branch of the public library at Thirty-fourth and Illinois streets is heated with a large stove. A pitcher of water is kept on the stove most ot the time. One Sunday afternoon the fire was booming and the pitcher singing merrily. . The quietness of the room was broken suddenly by a sup pressed giggle. In answer to. a sur prised glance from the librarian a boy said : "I know why yon keep that pitcher of water on the stove. It's to make people who are sitting where they can't see the stove think yon have steam heaL"s At the same branch library a high school lad threw down his school- books on the table and asked for a book on the high school reading list. llargory's Claw," he thought It was. The librarian turned to the shelves to suppress a smile and there before her was the book he no doubt wished. Marjory Daw," by Aldrich. ' The lad was so embarrassed at nis mistaKe that he left the library without his scboolbooks. A child recently asked for "The Priest's Cab," which the librarian in terpreted to mean "The Bishop's Car riage," and "Jessie MclJride" for "The Jessamy Bride." These little inci dents only serve to make a librarian's life more varied and delightful. Indianapolis-News. ; There was once a poor prince; he had a kingdom that was very small; still was quite large enough to marry up on; and he wished to marry. It was cerfainly rather cool of him to say to the Em perors daughter, "Will you have me?" But so he did; for his name was renowned far and wide; nd there were a hundred Princesses who would have answered, "Thank you." But see what she said. Now we will hear. By the grave of the Prince's father there grew a rose tree, -a most beautiful rose tree; it blossomed only once in five years, and even then bore only one flower, but that was a rose that smelt so sweet as to make one forget all cares and sorrows. A.nd furthermore, the Prince had a nightingale, who could sing in such a manner that it seemed as though, all sweet melodies dwelt in her throat. So the Princess was to have the rose and the nightingale; and they were ac cordingly put into large silver caskets, and sent to her. The Emperor had them brought into a - large hall, where the Princess was playing and "making calls", with the ladies of the court; they never did anything else, and when she saw the caskets with the presents, she clapped her hands for joy. "Ah, if it were but a little pussy cat !" exclaimed she; then out came came the beautiful rose. "O, how prettily it is made!" said all the court ladies. "It is more than pretty,' said the emperor; "it is charming!" '- But the Princess touched it and was almost ; ready to cry. "Fie, papa!" said she, "it is not made at all; it is natural!" v - "Fie!" cried all the court ladies; "it is natural!" "Let us see what is in the other casket, before we get into a bad humor," proposed the Emperor. So the Nightingale came forth, and sang so delightfully that at first no one could say anything ill-humored of it. "Superbe! Charmante!" exclaimed the the ladies; fot they all used to chatter French, each one worse than her neighbour.
