In Your Own Heart As one of the characters in a play, given last week by members of the Chautauqua, said in explaining her unfailing source of happiness and courage: "No matter what I'm doing, I can be a queen in my own heart. It don't hurt the cost me nuthin'." There is a wonderful source of inspiration in that thought Our inner dreams can lighten many a heavy burden we have to bear. Dick Swiveller and the March ioness of one of Dicken's stories, playing cards by the light of a tiny candle for two grimy sixpences laid in a saucer between them, saw the dingy walls in the base ment belonging to cruel old Sally Brass, melt into the gleaming tapestries and sconces of a palace. Imagina tion was their escape from the commonplace. Thus they bore the tedium, the petty meannesses, even the hunger, of that London slum. Being bored with things and people is fatal, not to them indeed, but to you. It is a sign of a circumscribed view not of the landscape but of human life. Riding thru this country on a fast train or in a speed ing automobile, it may be easy enough for many to make the mistake of thinking and saying-we have heard it often: "How can people live in such a place?" But let the man of discernment and intuition catch a glimpse of the luring beauties of the desert and he puts the proper valuation on them. He follows up their half invitational distances with the far-beckoning buttes until the very heart of the desert itself, with its radiance of shimmering opalescent color lies open like a book be fore his gaze. Happiness is an attitude of mind, beauty is always present if you have the seeing eye. "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he", a maxim that has lived through the centuries, is just as true today as it ever was. Out ward actions are the reflexes, the mirrors of inner thought. So the moral of the play Happiness was a pretty fine thing. "I can be a queen in my own heart." A New Story About Some Old Things-For All Children And Some Grown-Ups Of course this isn't a true story. The best stories never are. Have you noticed that? Well, once upon a time, oh, so long ago that all this country was just a level flat monotonous plain one day some of the younger angels got tired of playing round the jasper walls of the Great White City and unnoticed by sleepy old Saint Peter, slipped out of the great Pearl Gates, and ran away. Now, while these were just little young foolish an gels, still you must know that the very smallest of them was ever so much bigger than Woodruff Butte. You see they weren't just ordinary children. But they liked to do the same things. Oh yes, indeed! So all together in a merry group they sat down on the level plain and commenced to play. And one said, "Lets make a play-country." And all the other angels said, "Let's do." So they began. Now when they slipped away from the Great White City one or two had been playing with their toys and had carelessly brought them along. One had some beautiful blocks and sticks of purest chalcedony which had been left over when the walls were raised around the wonder ful city. These blocks and sticks with their gorgeous colorings the little big angels played with as they sat there oh the sand. . Now two or three of them took off their halos and used them as scrapers, and really it was wonderful, what holes they dug and what domes they piled up. Another took his finger and made a long crooked mark in the sand and clay and said, "I'll call this a river.'.' And they all said; "What is a river?", and he answered: "I don't really know. Sometimes it will be full of sand and water, and sometimes just sand but just the same, people will call it a river." Then after a little while one of the brighest of the little angels, I think he grew up to be Israfel. said: "I don't like this play country. Look how dingy it is. It isn't white nd shining like our Beautiful City. "Now we'll each take a feather from our wings and our mothers will never miss just one feather when we go back, and we ." So each one plucked out a glistening white plume from his snowy pinions. He dipped it in the first pink rays of the morning sun; he plunged it in the ultra marine of the midnight skies; he filled it with rose and scarlet and orange and gold from the sunset hues, and then with the loving care of childish fingers he painted the hollows and hills of his own play-country. But before they were through with their work, cross old Gabriel blew on the great brazen dinner horn and they all scampered back through the Gates of Pearl. queen none, and it don't SCHOOL BODS WHEREAS, the Board of Trustee of District No. 6 of Navajo County, Arizona, otherwise known as the "Taylor District" has, pursuant to the provisions of Paragraph 6627 of the Revised Statutes of Arizona, re quested tbe Board of Supervisors of Navajo County to issue a call for a School Bond Election within said School District No. ( of Navajo County for the purpose of submit tin to the property taxpayers who are in all respects qualified electors of said School District No. 6 the question whether said school dis trict shall be authorized to borrow the sum of Eleven Thousand Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($11,750.00 for the purpose of purchasing a proper school site, erecting a school house and furnishing and equipping the same, and whether the bonds of said school district shall be issued and sold in the sum of J11.750.0S, said bonds to consist of twelve bonds numbered from One to Twelve, in clusive, numbers One to Eleven to be in tbe denomination of One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) each and number Twelve to be in tbe de nomination of Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00) said bonds to be redeemable 20 years from their date and to bear interest at the rate of 6 per cent, per an num, payable semi-annually, but re serving to said school district the right to redeem said bonds at any time after five years from the date of issue: and, WHEREAS, it appears that the Incurring of said indebtedness. fr tbe Issuance of said bonds will not cause the indebtedness of said School District No. 6 to exceed the constitutional and statuatory limits.

So that is why parts of the country are so dull and dingy in color, and its because of the little runaway truants from the Jasper Walls that the sunset hues still dye the Painted Desert, the canyon walls and the domes and ravines of the Blue Forestj and this is why the chalcedony logs and blocks lie thick in the fantastic bad land country, whert the big little angels dag holes with their halos and forgot their blocks! !
