OUR STAN DAltD Right, Truth, Justice in all our deali.igs with the public; political, social and industrial: a ser.re of responsibility to our constituen cy and our loyalty to the interests of Holbroolr and Navajo county. Frozen Spots In the country near Flagstaff there is a natural cur iosity which arouses gieat interest among tourists and others of an inquiring nature. What we refer to are the lea Cive3 of that region, caverns filled with ice remain ing there in all probability from the remote days of the Glacial Period. It is true that these caves are among the great myst erious phenomena of nature, and as such are of transient interest to people. But they serve no beneficial purpose in the world, they give no more moisture to the parched features of good Mother Earth than do the very stones themselves. Hidden by the derbis of countless moving ages these ice stores remain, ever the same, cold and im passive, changeless as the granite ribs that underlay the softening curves of the hills. The ice caves house the century's useless product, forgotten by nature in t h e passage of the years. These are the 'frozen spots' of the earth. The harsh word quickly, thoughtlessly spoken, turns to ice the warm impulses of the heart on which it falls, and if the nature is not big and warm enough to melt with the fires of human understanding the ice congealing there, it will harden and freeze the blood through long years of unnecessary bitterness. It is a false philosophy which says: "There never yet was human power That could evade, if unforgiven, The patient search, and vigil long Of him who treasures up a wrong." Making a fetish of revenge cripples the life and soul of the one who seeks it. A cherished wrong, real though it may be, if fostered and perpetuated becomes a 'frozen spot' in the person's life. Nothing good can come of it. The warm embracing waters from the fount of friend ship that water the perpetual gardens of a happy heart will never flow from such a fountain. However, in human intercourse there is one almost infallible remedy for many of these frozen spots. "Talk it over." The wife thinks the husband neglectfui, the husband knows that the wife is unreasonable, the busi ness man believes his competitor has taken undue " ad vantage of his confidence, the professional man hears that his associate has spoken ill of him, these make up the ceaseless round of petty bie'cjrings that freeze the impulse of human kindness till all chance of concord is lost in a mass of frozen suspicion. But fancied wrongs can be dispelled by frankness. 1 Return frankness with truth, and lo! the frozen spots of the heart that cause many an ache in the inner solitudes j of a life will melt in the sunshine of friendly under- standing. Do not hug your discontent, your outraged i feelings to y ourself, there to grow to hideous size on the fertile soil of suspicion. Talk it out with one another. Do not take the whole wide world into your confidence but speak out to the other man fairly and frankly. Pre haps it is a false report, give him a chance to disprove it. You would appreciate a like courtesy. Many of the things we expert to happen, many of the things we are afraid of, never happen. In Pilgrim's Progress, Bunyan caught a glimpse of inspired truth when he made the "lions in the way" disappear and vanish into thin air at the steadfast approach of Christ ian. In this same fashion difficult situations are mas tered by a dauntless spirit. Refuse to have a 'frozen spot' in your heart. A plain understanding will banish most "mis-understandings." Anger and spite are excess baggage in the journey of life. Talk it over, and out of your system. Frozen spots are all right viewed as scenery, but worthless as life companions. I TgurimoCar i!

Of a villian whose life is one of crime, Who haunts our streets and homes full time. He is born in the dunghill, dark ard dank Or under some brush heap, near a bank. He spawns in the filth and dirt of years And up through the slime his brocd he rears. He fears not to braye the entrance dcor, He wings through the home from floor to floor, With a million eyes, a3 ever he flies, He swarms to the crib where the baby lies. Then over the soft little dainty face, With never a sijro that the eye can trace. He leaves his marks of poison and death, For horrible sickness crowds his breath. Then, on to the table, with buzzing glee His trail on the milk and butter will be. Or snoozing awhile on the ceiling white Next on the face of a ileeper he'll light RII1IIIIIIII1IBIIIIK1I9II( THE HOLBROOK DRUG COM PANY At the "BUSY CORNER' OUR MOITO "We Strive to Please" Do YOU Know That Rabbits Lay Easter Eggs?

Give us the life of that devil, the FLY!! PETRIFICADO'S JOTE BOOK We noticed a news note in the News last St. Patrick's day stating that "Mr. R. R. Alton of Adamana was in town last Saturday." In as much as Robert did n o t state to the News his mis sion to the Navajo County Capital it may be safely as sumed tkat he was taking advantage of the difference in the distance between St. Johns and Holbrook either of which are fully equipped to issue all the necessary legal papers which will aliow them, to live happy ever after etc etc etc. Afiss Mary Beasley for merly of Adamana who is now assisting one Mr. F.W. Wool worth and Co . of Fresno California, to get rid of their nice Accumulation of 5-10-15 cent bargains, writes one of her Bay Point corres pondents that she is attend ing night school at Fresno, ?11 of which reminds us that, Mary had a little lamb at least thats what I heard em say and it was so doggone mean it followed her to school almost every day one day the teacher teased the lamb till he showed a little fight, then the way he bump ed that teacher surely was a sight, then the directors held a meeting and said that sheep certainly is a fright. So I guess thats the reason Miss Afary has to go to school at night. According to the very latest report of J. Golliber Jr. our California iiealth Commissioner, only 48 per cent of all children born in California will ever grow np to be "native sons. This is certainly appalling. Word ha3 filtered through from the Adamana school district stating - that the teacher of that school is re quiring the children of the eighth grade to answer the following questions concern ing the "Afilky Wash" on or before April 1st 1922. How far is the Milky Wash from the Milky Way? What per cent of the milk used in Holbrook comes from, the Milky Wash? Is the milk of human kindness obtained from the Milky Way or the Milky Wash? Can the milk obtained from the Milky Wash be pasturized? We are informed that it will be necessary to answer a cer tain per "cent of these ques tions before eisrhth grade certificates will be issued. We went to the "Movies" the other night to see Bebe Daniels in "The Lion's Den" and the play was so open faced we had to wear shock absorbers all evening. W. 0. Morgan HERE'S ONCE HE TALKED TOO MUCH Bill Franklin, our cannv Overland dealer, overreach ed himself and made a big blunder one dav last week. and its such a good joke on him we have to tell it. He had a oar about sold to a Winslow prospect when he went for a ride with him in the frentieman's old Willvs Knight. The motor ran very smoothly and with so little vibration or noise that Mr. Franklin commented on the fact, whereupon the man straightway decided to keep his four year old Knight and not buy a new one, much to Franklin s chargm. Rut at that its a prettv Food "ad" for the car that after four years of use its motor still runs so silently. The Overland Company's national anthem should be 0, Silent Night." Some one says that the year 1921 was a blessing in disguise. There is no ques tion, all right. Charleston Gazette. COMING APRIL 17TH. DR. II. V.

A superstition that is seasonal with the short skirts of tlie present day is told by Yeats in the Celtic Twilight. "A lady I once knew saw a village child running about with a long trail ing petticoat upon her and asked the creature why she did not have it cut short. 'It was my grandmother's,' said tlie child ; 'would you have her going about yonder with her petticoat up to her knees and she dead but four days' ! I have read a story of a wom an whose ghost haunted her people because they made her grave clothes too short so ttiat the fires cf purgatory burned her knees." If you chance to meet a sneezer, swat him promptly on the beezer; thus you stifle his cadenza and" avoid the influenza. Louisville Times.
