Justice in all our dealings with the public; political, social and industrial; a sence of responsibility to our constituen cy and our loyalty to the interest of Holbrook and Navajo county. The Desert Claims Its Own Air that shimmers over the plain, Rippling waves of heat that quivver, Never a sight nor a sound of rain, Nor the cooling rush of a distant river. Only the dust in its skyward flight, Whirling and circling along the wash Like an Indian Ghost Dance, seen at night, Limned bright by the fire behind. Where the traveller swoons in the heat Is never a breath of the cooling breeze, But only fair in the distance there The luring mirage he sees. With trembling haste o'er the sand-filled waste, With tortured and aching limbs, With death to be faced, and all for a taste, Of the water shimmering there. Cool as the well, where the slow drops fell From the bucket old and gray, When childhood's spell, we knew so well Made the old earth seem so gay. Cool as the cave, where west winds rave, In boyhood's fancy wild, The desert gave the water to save, And he points to the scene below. But out of the south, the breath of the drouth Has scattered the picture there, And leaves only the sand, and near at hand A dead form lying there. While sailing slow, oft to and fro The buzzards show no dread. The sun sinks low, the bright stars show, The desert claims it dead. Babson Detects Bright Spot In Mount ain States Waterpflwers TVTCreate Wealth Only Genuine Indian Curios "Up to recent weeks one could not honestly write optimistically of conditions in the Mountain States. Con ditions now look better, however, from several angles. With the exception of Colorado the situation is pretty spotty. The emergency tariff is helping to some extent the wool growers, but all stock raisers have been obliged to take tremendous losses on their herds. The banks in Montana; Southern Idaho, Wyoming, Eastern Colorado, Southeastern Utah, Northern Arizona and Eastern New Mexico are forced to renew yearly all their paper and are very fortunate to get interest. The situation is rapidly righting itself however, and from present indic ations stock raisers and wool growers will get very fav oraDie prices ior tneir products this year, l heir posi tion will also be strengthened by reduced operating ex penses and by avoiding speculation. The mining situation was exceedingly dull thruout 1921. The copper mines of Utah and Arizona have been almost completely shut down, while the lead, silver and other mines have been running at a very low ebb. The worst conditions are found to be in Arizona and New Mexico. Manufacturers and merchants cannot ex pect to sell many goods in these States during 1922. All money which these people get they must use for pay ing their bills. Being a director of a very large land company operating in these states, I know that many of these stock raisers have not the funds with which to pay for the rent of their lands. '" Of course, it is very sad that these men will not save money during good times for certainly they made great profits only a few years ago. . However, the only business thing to do is to ex tend credit to these people. 1 hey come up quickly as they go down quickly. They some day will be making money again and will loyally remember those who have been lenient to them during this period of stress. More over, the condition of the range is fair and 1922 may be a good rainy year. One of the important industries of the Mountain States is lumbering. Like mining and stockraising, however, lumbering also is very dull. There has been a great drop in the price of lumber at the mill like the price of everything eUe. There is no immediate outlook for higher lumber prices. The lumber people, however, are greatly reducing their operating expenses. Labor has been cut 50 per cent in many sections and the effi ciency of the men is much greater The brightest spots are those sections where oil is being found. In nearly all these mountain states there are certain sections where oil developments either exist or are contemplated. The very act of boring for oil creates a temporary prosperity. As people come into the territory a demand for supplies and labor is created while a general optimism pervades the community. If oil is finally discovered this means a real new source of wtalth.

Snake Priests. L. B. PUTNEY MERC. CO. X j Holbrook - - - Arizona One cannot help but be optimistic on this country considering the wonderful undeveloped water power re sources. Not only does the construction of these plants produce a certain amount of business but they continue forever as a source of great wealth. In the long run a water power is much better for a community than mines or forests and oil wells, which in time become depleted. The most prosperous industry of the Mountain States last year was the tourist business. This will not be especially active during 1922; but no one loses money on it. The index for the Babsonchart shows some improve ment this week. Business stands at 12 per cent below normal, compared with 13 per cent a week ago. This improvement is encouraging and may indicate the sea sonal quickening which should be expected during the early spring months. Next Week "Pacific States" (All Publication and Radio Rights Strictly Reserved) The Section Foreman's Plaint Now 1 lay me down to sleep Cold chills and hunger o'er me creep, If I should die before I wake, Some section hand my breeches take. The heels are off my old shoes, It somehow makes me have the blues, To think that I must work all day, For such a meager little pay. When I go out on the railroad track, With my stomach stickin' to my back, Oh, Lord You know how I would feel, If I had just one good square meal. We'd like to have a little meat, Something that a man could eat, Oh, Lord, look down for pity's sake, And send a great big juicy steak. t And now Oh Lord, in our distress, t We'd like to buy our wife a dress, But then You know, it's just this way, ; It can't be done on such "small pay. i Oh, Lord we pray the time will come, We won't be always on the bum, You know the time was never known, When we had a dollar to call our own. One cold night as I lay in bed, With the cover pulled up o'er my head, The foreman called and said "By-Heck," We'll have to gp to a 'fernal wreck. You know Oh Lord we had to go, . Out through the bitter cold and snow,:.' And worked all night with might and main, To clear the track for the passenger train. And now Oh Lord look down with love, 1 From Thy far off happy home above, f And grant that we won't have to go. To any more wrecks on the B. and 0.

He restoreth my soul and my conscience. He leadeth me in the path of justice and equity. Yea, tho I walk thru the hall of hell I fear no evil for the Democrats are absent on a vacation and their politicians and profiteers are not at home. Thou prepareth the back for the burthen and mine enemies also, have to labor. Thou anointeth the backs of the profiteers with stripes and the seals of the m'fghty thouspanketh. Sure ly the poverty which follow ed in the wake of Wilson shall be overcome by the in dustry of Harding and peace and plenty abide forever. Contributed M. R. Tanner. ST.

About 6 o'clock the tired but happy party start ed for home, arriving there safely about 8 o'clock. Everyone pronounced the day the happiest ever spent and look forward to many more such outings.

JOHN NELSON RETURNS John Nelson, well known sheep man of Heber, return ed from the southern part of the state the latter part of last week. He went on out to his ranch where he will spend the summer. Mr. Nelson intends to fare well this summer as he shipped up several crates of young chickens and one of fine young turkies. One crate of the chickens con tained fryers almost large enough for the skillet. We looked at them and licked our lips hungrily. It is not right to submit a lean? and hungry editor to such temp tation. Mr. Nelson had the chick ens taken out to his ranch via auto truck, which was eminently proper, as they looked like thoroughbreds. o ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY ORDER OF SALE OF REAL ESTATE SHOULD NOT BE MADE In the Superior Court of the State of Arizona, in and for Navajo County.
