THE HOLE NEW Official Paper of Navajo County and the Holbrook Oil Field SINGLE COP1KS TEN CENTS TRAGIC DEATH OF MR. A. E. HENNING IN PINTO ON WEDNESDAY EVENING Falls from Windmill Tower Never Regains Consciousness One by one of the Old Guard of Navajo Count y are answering to the call of their Great Commander. Among the early residents here Mr. A. E. Henning will be well remembered. Despite the advancing years Mr. Henning was hale and hearty. It was but a few days ago that he was in Holbrook visiting with his friends. Then came the "last clear call" for him. Wednesday evening the sad intelligence reached HolbroOk that he met with a fatal accident. Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Henning and Dr. Bazell drove up to Pinto immediately upon receipt of the news but were too late to see Mr. ienning's father alive. Late in the afternoon Mr. A.E. Henning climbed the windmill tower at the ranch house in Pinto and fell re ceiving injuries from which he never regained consci ousness and which caused his death at seven-twenty the same evening. Mr. Henning leaves a wife and three, children, Mr. Lloyd Henning, Clerk of the Superior Court, Mrs. Loy Turbeville and Miss Marbry Henning. The funeral will be held in Hol brook, but the exact date will not be decided upon until word is received from Miss Marbry Henning who is at present teaching. The sympathy of the en tire community goes out to the bereaved wife and family. SOME QUICK WORK Monday just about dusk, Deputy Sheriff 0. C. Wil liams picked up a couple of young fellows in a Stude baker roadster. He had been wired from Williams to intercept them, and Eromptly got on the job. teputy Sheriff Campbell of Williams came up on No. 10 and returned with the two suspects on No. 21. A truck tire of dubious owner ship was the cause of all the trouble. The young man Mr. R. Brownelly of Long Beach, Calif., insists that it is all a mistake and due to the actions of another bunch with whom he and his pard nerMr. Antoine Bectel camp ed while in Kingman. He returned with the sheriff to straighten things out. Mr. Williams also has a suspect in the case of the murder in the box car near Seligman, under watch. The Sheriff from that place came in Wednesday to look, him over. It was a most brutal murder, committed last Sat urday, by a man about fifty years old on a young bov who was riding in the same box car with him. Mr. and Mrs. 11. S. Teeple are spending the week at Cooleyas the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Don Cooley. MR. HUGHES wishes to an nounce to his customers that he is now settled in his new building on Porter St. Your continued patronage appreciated. LEAVESFOR VISIT Mrs. Virginia Hammond came in from Keams Canon Tuesday in company with her husband who is employ ed by the government in that place. Mrs. Hammond left for Oklahoma where she will visit with her sister and daughter. She expects to be gor.e for about two months. COMPETE FOR LONG DISTANCE WALKING RECORD We didn't know that any one who owned a car ever walked any more except when the gas gave out, but Mr. Osborne must be an ex ception to the rule. Last week he went out in to the Navajo Country, driv ing out by way of Flagstaff and on to Kayenta, where he took the first step on his way to walking, that is hea bandoned a perfectly good car and substituted a "buck board." At this point he was joined by Mr. Park, Mr. Thompson, and Mr. Peter son of Swan ton, Cal. They had come out earlier straight from Holbrook. . The object of the trip was the inspection of a mine lo cated some 24 years ago by Wm. Lee, father of Mrs. Osborne. It is a copper mine and the investigators pro nounced it to be a very good one, but the difficulties of transporation make it im possible to get tangible result from it at present. On the re turn trip Mr. Osborne de scended still lower in the scale of locomotion. He a bandoned the buckboard and to use an elegant phrase, hoofed it for thirty miles. At that he beat the buck board in by about eight hours, not so bad, eh? We think he must be intending to compete with Weston for the longdistance walkingre cord. RETURN FROM SOUTHERN TRIP Mr. and Mrs. Henry Scorse returned from their southern trip early this week. They report that the weather down at their ranch near Florence in delightful, that straw berries are getting ripe and other delightful things com ing on. They met with no trouble from their car on the trip, but did encounter some bad roads. They spent part of their time in Phoenix while on their trip. o I hereby announce that I am a candidate for the office of County Recorder, of Navajo County, subject to the wishes of the voters in the Democratic primary to be held September 12th, 1922. Mrs. James Donohoe. HOLBROOK, HOLBROOK HI TEAM SHUTS OUTJLAGSTAFF Last Friday the Baseball Team from the Emerson High School in Flagstaff journeyed down to our city and tried to play ball with our local High School Team.

MEMBER OF CHAUTAUQUA ORCH ESTRA SICK Mr. Richard Beidel, 'cell ist with the Biltmore Orch estra who were members of the Ellison White Chautau qua Co. here last week, was taken very ill during his stay in town. Dr. Odell of Flagstaff, a personal friend of the man was called to at tend him, and upon the doc tor's advice he was moved to California, since pneu monia was feared and to one unaccustomed to this high altitude it might react un favorably. Mr. Beidel was a 'cellist of unusual ability and came from a musical family. His father is the leading 'cellist in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. WAS IT INSURED Mr. W.B. Woods, our per suasive and silver-tongued Insurance Man, met with a painful accident last Tues day. While crossing the office at the local telephone exchange his sine caught on a seam in the linoleum floor covering and he suf fered a severely wrenched ankle. He has been com pelled to keep very closely indoors since the mishap and the swelling ha3 been very painful. The reporter didn't . learn whether or not he carried an accident insurance policy, but if he doesn't we'll wager that he'll experience no dif ficulty in selling himself one in the future. 1 hereby announce my candidacy for the office of County Recorder of Navajo County, subject to the wish es of the voters in the Dem ocratic primary to be held September 12, 1922.

Cadwell, the reports of various committees were called for. The Municipal Camp Ground Committee reported most favorably on a site near the cemetery on land owned by the Santa Fe and were directed by the meet ing to continue their work on the project. It was suggested that the same plan might be pursued in fixing it up that has been made use of in other towns and that was turned to good account in cleaning up the cemetery that of united town effort---fixing on a day and everyone turning out to help in the work. One day of thfe sort of work; if well planned in advance, can see the completion of a great many improvements. The telegrams were read, to and from Sen. James Scott in relation to the quashing of an anti Insurance bill which the Chamber had protested and which had "died the death." Also a letter was considered from Capt. Geo. J. Henry of Ft.

At the close of the meet ing the resolution was made asking all business houses to ciose for half a day on May 30th, Decoration Day.

Vol. 14 No. 1 Martin Mederis, who was employed at the Adamana Oil well received extremely painful injuries last Satur day when in some manner while working around the engine his arm became caught in the machinery. It was impossible to with draw the arm even after the engine was finally stopped. It was necessary for the men with him to take the engine partially to pieces before the injured arm could be remov ed. It was twenty minutes before his comrades were able to release the injured man. He was rushed to town at once where he re ceived medical attention im mediately. Tfce same even ing he went to Gallup to the hospital. Mr. Beldingof the Commercial Hotel who is well known in the Carbon City accompanied the suf fering man. The bones of the arm were broken in three places and were wrenched out of the elbow joinjt, the flesh was horribly mangled and many small splinters of bone were protruding. It is not as yet known whether it will be possible to save the arm, but hope is retained as he is having the very best medi cal care and nursing. HAVE A DOCTOR HANDY The News is fortunate in its location.: It is right next door to a dandy new office where it can go if it gets any of its miscellan eous fingers mashed and get the doctor to patch them up. The new offices are well furnished and are up to date in every particular. They give promise of being extremely comfortable as well as convenient. Dr. Bazell is indeed fortunate to have such a nice suite of rooms at his command. ENTERTAINED AT DINNER Mr. and Mrs. Dick Grigsby entertained a small party at dinner last luesday evening.
