Show was in Holbrook the query paramount in all male minds must have been "To be kissed or not to be kiss ed, that is the question." We will say this for the fair and kiss inclined young damsel, she seemed strictly impartial, young and old, all that came in her reach or net, rather, were fish. We'll wager a Yankee Dime that there were more mas culine blushes scattered round that circus tent than have been seen in Holbrook for many a weary week. And to think that it was all wasted, for SHE was only another man after all. In this connection, with out mentioning any names, we wish to siy that we saw a resourceful wife deal most expertly with a hus band who fell victim to the wiles of Fatima who was riding in the circus parad. She smothered his emotions for him!

Mrs. Cook will return about the first of next week. FINANCIER IN CITY AND SUNDAY Several Holbrook people rubbed their eyes and won dered if they were seeing things when they recognized a figure, well known to all newspaper and magazine readers calmly walking up the dusty streets of Hol brook. But it proved to be no fault of therr eyesight, and it was the very gentle man himself. Mr. Wm. G. AcAdoo, in the flesh. Mr. McAdoo is too well known to our readers to need an introduction. He is an old friend of Dr. S. Earl Taylor of our city and stopped over here for a short visit. During his stay he visited the Petrified For est and then later made a short tour over the oil field. He left for the Coast on Sun day. We rather feel that we are on the map, as y o u might say, when we have such visitors in our midst. WAS THETIRE TIRED A young man, a tourist, who was working with a tire on his car at the Nava jo Garage did something to A t a 1 a 1 at 11 inai evidently maae me tire tired! At any rate it let loose all holds and blew up. We often do when we are tired. The young man received a severe cut on the forearm and a large quantity of dust in the eyes, lhe tire was then so much tireder that it collapsed! Ur. Bazell treated the in jured man and nothing ser ious is feared as to the re suit of this peculiar accident. FIRST FISHING TRIP Of THE SEASON Fridav morning a iollv party started out for a fish ing trip in the mountains. They will be gone for somf little time and will lure the wily trout from his secret pools at the source of Black river and the Little Colo rado, beneath the shadows of Old Baldy. Those who will make the trip are: Mr. and Mrs. Perrv Carter. Mr. and Mrs. J. Fay, Joe Woods Jr. Joe Woods br.,hlwood Crouse, and Mr. Bostwick of IKins- low. GRAND CANYON PARTY Dr. and Mrs. M.M.

Mr. Errett and Dr. Swit ?er walked to the river and back Monday, stopped at che Indian Gardens on the way, on the return Mr. Er rett asked for Ice Cold lem ide at the miner's cabin and net a rebuff. The lady said I don't have to keep lemon ide and besides where vould I get the ice, you ought to be glad to g e t vater down here. Mrs. James Scorse return ed early this week from her trip to Williams and Flag staff, and is warm in her ap preciation of the beautiful Memorial Services held in the latter city. Mrs. Scorse visited with friends in both places and had a most de lightful trip. HOLBROOK, BEEHIVES SWARM AT SNOWFLAKE The warm weather is great for swarming they say. It proved to be so on last Wednesday, May 31st. when the Beehive Girls from Holbrook flew up to Snow Hake and joined the Swarms there for a May Festival. There are three Swarms in Snowflake and they pro ved themselves royal enter tainers in their treatment of the Holbrook girls. The visitors were treated to luncheon and dinner and later a dance was given in their honor. During the day there were appropriate festivities in honor of ' the flowery month of May." Everyone had a most delightful time. The ffirls were taken ud to Snowflake by Mrs. Jen- nings who drove a truck which accomodated a good many of them, and the rest rode with Mrs. Chamberlin and Miss Jennie Newman. On the wav back the lierhts on a couple of the cars pave out and it was late, or rath er, very early before they reached Holbrook. There were twentv girls in the party and six chaperones, so they were all taken care of. They are all anxiously awaiting the time when it will be proper for them to swarm next year. HIS SOMBRERO IS JNTHE RING W. G. Ivellv. RflniitvSiicV. . J r- "j iff. of Winslow. Arizona, has Uhied his sombrero in the ixmtical riner. and is now an avowed candidate on the Democratic ticket for the rffice of sheriff of Navajo 'Jounty. As Deputy Sherif luiingthe past year, Mr. Cellv has certainlv made good. He has made many ii a. - i? . . . - menus oy strict impartiality, ind he is genial and court ous, yet tireless and un linchirg, in the perfor mance of his duties. If elected, he will fill the office with credit to the County md to himself. The News believes he is a good man for the office. IT NEVER RAINS BUT IT POURS We are most creditably informed that we are to have roads and more roads. rhere cannot be too many good roads in Navajo Co. to see the day when every part of the county has easy access to every other part by wide, well made thoro ughfares. I he next road that will probably receive some im provement will be the one north of town leading to Lupton. It is said that approximately 40,000 dol- ars will be spent on this. While this is not nearly as targe an amount as will be spent on the Petrified For est Road leading to St. Johns, the estimates and plans for which are already in the hands of the Federal Authorities, still it will help considerably. The dream of every olbrook citizen should be to have a perfect network of satisfactory roads with well graded road beds connecting the county seat and all parts of the county. No doubt this will come eventually. When one looks back upon the condition of the roads just a decade ago one can only wonder at the differ- NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA, June 2. 1922 PICNIC AMONG THE PINES SUNDAY ELKS FROLOEAR AT HAND The local members of the Elks known as the Antlers Club have completed arrangements for their outing a- mong the pines at Lakeside.

Crozier will be a candidate for Super visor from the Winslow Sup ervisoral District, and that he apparently will have no opposition. This is certain ly good news to friends of Mr. Crozier residing inother parts of Navajo County, and the News joins with them in hoping this report is authen tic. Mr. Crozier would make an excellent supervisor. PERFORMS WITH THE BUGLE W. W. Franklin was call ed upon in Winslow Memo rial Day to use his skill with the bugle and blow "Taps" over the graves. Mr. frank lin is quite an expert with thejinstrument, and as there was no one in Winslow who could play the bugle he was glad to help them out in their commemoration of the dead who gave their lives for their country. ence the wide use of the automobile has made in our highway system. Of course there is much that still re mains to be done, but it is encouiaging to see what h3S been acomplished, even if one regards it merely as an earnest of what is yet to come. 10:35 10:40 10:45 10:50 11:00 11:10 11:25 12:00 1:30 2:30 boat- Novelty racing. with supper. BALL GAME MEMORIAL DAY The ball game played here on Memorial Day was more in the shape of a practise game than anything else. We can not give any very detailed account of it except to say that the scores were rather large. It is thought that a week from the com ing Sunday there will be a game with Leupp. The team also expects to take part in the Baseball Tournament which will be staged at IFinslow by the American Legion as a part of their Fourth of July Cele bration. LEAVE FOR BERKLEY Professor and Mrs. John Brannigan are leaving this week for California. Pro fessor Brannigan will enter Berkley for a summer course, thus combining pleasure and profit. They will be missed from Holbrook circles this summer but we will be de lighted to welcome them up on their return in the fall. HEBER RESIDENTS HERE Mr. and Mrs. Stewart of Heber were in town during the early part of the week. They motored in and brought with them their son's wife who is on her way to southern Utah.

ONE OF HOLBKOOK'S OLDEST RESI DENTS PASSES AWAY v Mrs. Perfecta Barth Died on Friday One of Holbrook's oldest residents passed "to that bourne from which no travel ler ever shall return," early on Friday morning. Mrs. Perfecta Barth, who has been a resident in Holbrook since the townsite was first laid out, breathed her last at nine o'clock Friday morn ing. Mrs. Barth has been ail ing for at least a year, and had been living at the Duran home, and it was there that the last messenger came for her. She will be interred Saturday with Catholic cere monies. The deceased was about 76 years of age. Her husband, who was a brother of Mr. Sol Barth of St. Johns has been dead for many years, and it is thought that both of her children are also dead. During the early days of Holbrook's pioneer years Mr. j Barth owned and operated a store in the town. Slowly, one by one, the leaves drop from the trees. Slowly, one by one, the pio neers who helped to build this country from the wild erness that once engulfed it, are quietly creeping away to rest. UNIQUE WINDOW DIS PLAY ONPORTER ST. The Jennings Auto Co. has staged a most unique display in their salesroom window on Porter Str-It seems to attract the kiddies and fairly fascinate them with its perfection and possi bilitea. If some don't watch their young hopefuls they will be taking the family flivver apart to construct a counterpart. The window display is no more nor less than a com plete locomotive and tender built entirely of Ford parts. It looks so realistic that you expect to see steam coming out of the safety valve. It has a cow-catcher and even rails on which to locomote! BUSY DAY IN WINSLOW JUSTICECOURT Last week County Attor ney Greer spent a busy day in the Justice Court prose cuting cases before Judge Sweeney. The most inter esting case was that of Ped ro Hernandez who was bound over to the Superior Court on a charge of burg lary connected with the re cent robbery of the Babbit Bros. Store in Winslow. His bond was set at $2000. The man has a record in New Mexico which shows an eighteen month sojourn in the Penitentiary. Gardner and Kelly are on the job and they neatly pick ed this fellow up. One ex. citinsr moment of the trial came when the accused man i threatened that if he were sent to the pen on t h e charge that as soon as he was released he would re turn and kill Candelaria Sirilio, the principal witness for the prosecution. In addition to this case a Mexican was bound over to the Superior Court on a whiskey charge. Another one plead guilty to stealing coal and was fin ed $10. A third man accused of receiving stolen property escaped by an alibi. The day was rather full of incidents.
