Mr. and Mrs. Cadwel', their son Junior, and daugh ter Helen Clare, with the W.E. Fergusons were pic- . . ... r-CF T I!! mcing at the unn uweimigs southeast of town. Mr. and Mrs. VV. C. Ferguson and Mr. and Mrs. Axline were also taking an outing in the same place. While the older people were getting lunch ready, the three little girls, Helen Clare Trammell and Doris and Violet Ferguson, went exploring. When about 120 yards from the older folks and out of sight the young sters started to climb the rocky ledge3 on the cliff side. Helen Clare was a head. In climbing along she held to a piece of rock in the cliff side. It gave beneath her hands and she . fell, head over heels, a dis tance of twenty-five feet into deep water. She sank twice, but on coming, up for the third time managed to paddle to the bank. The bank itself was so high she was unable to get out and the other, little girls ran screaming for help. Before he could get her out it was necessary for Mr. Cadwell to swim across the pool and Mrs. Cadwell as sures us that the only com edy element in the whole affair was the number of things that floated out of Jjia- pockets and down the river as he swam across the pand fully clad. The young lady and Mr. Cadwell returned home im mediately for dry clothing. Helen Clare has suffered no more serious results than a skinned hand and a bruised leg. Bat it was a lucky es cape. She wouldn't get off so easily again under the same circumstances once in a thousand years.

Important negotiations are now pending with reference to the future development of the Holbrook area and following his usual course, Dr. Taylor prefers not to make any announcement un til his negotiations have reached a more definite stage. He indicates, how ever that everywhere he went in the East he found an increasing interest in the Holbrook field and ex pressed himself as being more confident than ever that a period of big develop ment lies just ahead in this field. WILD WEOT PARADE The very young set of Holbrook indulged in a wild west parade on Tuesday afternoon that would have done credit to Buffalo Bill. They were under the di rection of Miss Ester John son and were representing the Junior Chautauqua. The kiddies have lots of fun and make lots of fun for others. Nobody can't "get their goat. Bob Kelly of Winslow was an out town visitor this week NAVAJO COUNTY. ARIZONA. KtVENGE WAS SWEET Holbrook Hi Boys a Mean Bat. Slung Winslow High School base ball players journeved to Holbrook Saturday April 22 to repeat their performance of April 15, but sadly to their disappointment, our High bchool boys had their batting eyes, and the mast erly pitching of Louis Divel- bess, with credit of 16 strike outs, turned his opponents home with the small count of 5 scores. The heavy hit ting of Arnold Lee, with home run and three base hit, Lee was there with the willow. also George Hastings and Tony Ortega with one two base hit each, assisted Louis in bringing home the bacon. Mr. Camp of Winslow team pitched a very clean and clever game, having 13 strikeouts to his credit, but his team mates were unable to solve our Lours's delivery. In fact Keyes couldn't hit him with a Baker's Shovel. Score Holbrook AE R H PO A E Hastings .lb. 4 3 3 0 0 0 Lee ss. 4 3 3 0 0 0 Koury c. 4 1 0 16 1 1 Ortega 2b. 4 0 1 0 2 3 Divelbeta p.

Holbr&ok Oil Fie'd April 2871v FIRE Ark. ft TANK On last F'-'iday evening the Santa F - staged a few fire works their own ac count when the large red water tank beside the tracks west of town and near the old stock yards was destroy ed by fire. The fire originated among the heavy piling supporting the tank and in all probabi lity was caused by some hobo's campfire. The tank presented a very spectacular sieht with the flames swirl. ing and pouring in concen tric circles around the iron girt tank. The flames were partially extinguished when thewate with which it had been filled the previous day. escaped. But this only retarded the fire and did not extinguish it. The tank will be a total loss. CAPABLE AND COURTEOUS While there have been one or two things done during Governor Campbell's admin istration with which we can not wholly concur, still his whole record while in office has been a good one. lhe Governor has shown himself to be a gentleman and what is more a man. His courtesy while in a posi tion of public trust, to one and all of his constituents has gone as far as anything else to prove the metal of the man. It is not always thus with state officials and we could cite instances. It would be a great mis take for the voters of Ari zona to permit the - Gover nor s retirement from public life, whether to succeed him self or in some ether post important to tne weuare 01 the state. WILL WAR DEPARTMENT CHANGE ITS MANIFESTO There seems to be a rumor current that the abandon ment of Ft. Apache may not be absolutely certain. The date for the removal has been set several times but has each time been countermanded and depart ure delayed. We were given to under stand that there have been several consultations be tween nesters, cattle and sheep ranchers etc., who would be seriously affected by the removal of the troops, on the one hand and the military on the other, re garding the advisability of this move. The last date set for the abandonmeet of the fort was on May, 5. We can only hope that the War De pt. has seen fit to reconsid er its decision. Perhaps the memorials and peti tions sent from this part of the state are at last bearing fruit. UNLOADS CAR OF FORDS Mr. Jennings thought he was busy enough settling up the Chautauqua affairs this week and getting them in apple pie order, but he knew that he was busier than a one armed man in fly time when on top of it all a car load of Ford cars arrived for him to chaperone on their first debut into the world. There are four trucks in the shipment that arrived from the Ford fac tory on Wednesday. The others are different models. Deputy Sheriff Kelley was in town Thursday. VENUS TURLEY KILLED BY EXPLO SION AT CAMP VERDE LAST FRIDAY Dynamite Ends Life of Young Woodruff Man MISSOURI DECTIVE HERE Mn Geo. E. Lawson, City Detective of Kansas City, Mo. was in Holbrook Thurs day. He came for the man whom Deputy Sheriff Kelly picked up in Winslow this last week and who is wanted in Missouri on a burglary charge.. Mr. Lawson says the man is a drug addict, and a bad hombre generally and he will be much better satisfied when he gets him safely back in the K. C. bastile. TRAVELING OVERLAND RIGHT Mr. Stout who has been living near Pinedale for some time, passed through Holbrook this last week. He was headed for south western Colorado, and was going by way of Durango. He was traveling with his sons and they were doing it in "the good old fashioned way", viz. by wagon and team. It will prove to be a rather long trip in this style of peregrinating. INCREASE IN P0PULATI0N The population in our city is rapidly increasing and we are always glad to welcome newcomers.' Even more than usually so, indeed, when they are introduced and vouched for by members of our own communitv. , The very latest arrival was a husky young chap who put in his appearance, and ask ed for room and board at the Schuster residence. " Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Schuster are both so good natured that they could not bear to turn such a hand some young stranger away from their door, so he was accommodated in a fashion that met with his entire ap proval. Arthur was so flattered by the advent of the young man that he passed the cigars to all and sundry whom he chanced to meet on Sunday. Somebody had good natured- ly told him that the handsome young chap looked like him! We were out of town so didn't get our share, but anyway we like chocolates better than smokes! To boil it all down Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Schuster are the proud parents of an nine pound boy, born Sat urday night. "Mother and son doing well." CHANGE IN SERVICE METHODIST CHURCH Sunday School at-10:00. On account of the two Chau tauqua programs on Sunday this will be the only church service of the day. After the Sunday School lesson the Pastor will give a talk to the pupils on the subject, TRUE SERVICE. CHAUTAUQUAASUCCESS The first meetings of the Chautauqua have been a great success. The gym has been crowded to its fullest capacity. The diff erent numbers given so far on the program have met with great approval from the audiences. i Vol. 1 3 No. 52 Tragedy again invaded the quiet confines of Woodruff when word was received there, late last week, of the death of Venue Turley, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Hyrum Tur ley of that place. This is the second Woodruff boy to meet with a violent death in the space of a few short weeks. Mr. Turley was about 24 years of age and unmarried. The details of the accident are few. It is known that in company with Roland Tanner of St. Jo, he stayed behind to set off some charges of dynamite while the rest of the crew work ing on the Camp Verde High way, went to camp for din ner. Part of the charges of dynamite exploded, but one fuse evidently burned very slowly. When the young man went back to see about it came within the radius of a delayed but terrific ex plosion. This is a sad hap- pening to his parents and many friends in Woodruff, and he will be greatly miss ed and long remembered in the home circle. The following clipping taken from the Verde Cop per News is self-explanatory. - INJURIES FATAL Venus Turley, the young highway employe who was iqjured last Friday after noon on the Camp Verde highway by a dynamite ex plosion, died at the United Verde hospital shortly after the Verde News of that day had gone to press. The body was shipped on Saturday to Woodruff, Arizona, where his parents reside. The un foitunate young man was almost literally blown to bits and there was never any real chance of saving his life owing especially to the amount of blood lost during the long trip from where the accident occured, near Black Canyon, to the hospital. CAME A LONG WAY TO GET CAUGHT Dan Kile, erstwhile of Kansas City, travelled a long way to escape the clutches of the law. But he must have been reading Diamond Dick literature where there is no law west of the Rio Grande. "Themwuz good old days." But its not so anv more. Deputy Sheriff W. G. Kelly formed a reception commit tee to welcome the stranger in our midst. Few can get by a fellow with the name of Kelly. So to make the long trail of Dan Kyle into a short tale, the gentleman in question, accused of hav ing appropriated $2200 from a collector for a chain of grocery stores in K. C. was brought to Jolbrook, waiv ed extradition and will be sent back to Missouri. It may be the "Show-me" state, but we have the officers who can do it. Constable Ed. Gardner and W. G. Kelly also convoyed an Indian to the Holbrook jail this week. The Navajo was arraigned in Judge Sweeney's court on a statu tory charge and bound over to the Superior court. o Mr. Clossey of Adamana came down about the middle of the week and paid a short call at The News.
