It is written by MR. MEL BAKER of our city and emphasizes some of the great natural scenic beauties to be found in NOT METEOR MINE BUT CRATER BUTTE SAYS GOVERNMENT N.H. Darlton of the U.S. Geological Survey says that in his opinion Meteor Mine Butte was not caused by the impact of an ancient sky wanderer, but is nothing more nor less than the re sult of a steam explosion which forced its way up through the Coconino Sand stone formation. This is the point at which the in ward pressure which exist ed from miles around was finaly lessened. The name given by the Gov't to this natural phenomenon is Crat er Butte. UDALL TRANSPORTA TION CO. OPENS NEWOFFICE The Udall Transportation Co. is opening up its office on Railroad Ave. .They-are well equipped to take care of traffic to all inland towns. The company has been in operation long enough to be thoroughly conversant with the roads in every direction through Navajo and Apache Counties. They have stages which ply daily between Holbrook and the outlying towns of Eager, Ft. Apache, Keams Canyon and all inter mediate points. Mr. Sherwood a member of the company has just re turned from a trip to El Paso where he purchased three White trucks for use on the various stage routes. These new cars are most luxuriously upholstered for Eassenger traffic and each as a compartment in the rear for carrying baggage, mail, and express. This new equipment when manned by skilful drivers, such as the men employed by this firm, is certain to guarantee all travelers the greatest possible road-comfort. EXPENS1VESTATI0NERY The First Nat'l Bank has received the first consign ment of bills which as a National Bank, it is licensed to issue under itsown name. The bills are crisp new five dollar bills and bear the name of The First National Bank of Holbrook on their face and are signed by D. J. Thomas. This is the first time in its history that Holbrook has had its name blazoned forth to the world on the front of such expensive stationery. The road camps of the men working on the new hishway between Holbrook .and Winslow have moved in to the flat just west . of town. If good weather con tinues it will not be long be fore we have'a dandy boule vard between the neighbor ing towns. this 'Lin A or Little Kain LOST CAR LOCATED The Sheriff's office was fortunate this week in lo cating a large Buiek car stolen some time ago from a Winslow owner. The car is being held in Clovis New Alex, and the officials here are confident that they will soon have the man who took the car away, who is supposed to be a man by the name of Enoch Wilson, late of tha Railroad City. The authorities ex- Eect to apprehend him in os Angeles. Mr. W.G. Kellv. Denutv Sheriff, who located the car is at present absent on an ornciai trip to mid-western points during which he com pleted . the indentification. NAVAJO CO. REPUBLI CANS HOLD CONVENTION Wednesday afternoon the Republicans of Navajo Co. held a meeting in the Court House at Holbrook to decide on the names of the men to run for the various political offices in the fall election. A goodly number were present and seemed to be deeply interested in the wel fare of the Republican party in this county. No one announced himself for the offices of County At torney, Assessor, 1 reasurer, or Clerk of the Court. A committee was appointed to name men to nil these va cancies, but later reported without having reached any definite decision. The Republican slate as it stands at present seems to be JuJg J. E. Crosby Co. ScKl. Supt. Mr. Kinney Senator James Scott Rep. JoKn Pearce Supervisor , Lorenzo Willis Recorder Will Wooster Skeriff Divelbass Hastings The vacancies on the tick et will no doubt be filled at a later date. Mr. Willis mentioned as a candidate for supervisor in the 3rd District did not signify his entire willingness to make the race. No nomination was considered necessary for the hold-over supervisor's place. PURCHASES SOLOMON DAIRY Mr. W. B. Farr has pur chased the dairy cows own ed by Mr. Solomon and took over the same on Wednes day. This enlarges Mr. Farr's business interests to quite an extent. It certainly seems that at last Holbrook has a real dairy and one that has come to stay. No longer can it be said of Holbrook and vicinity that it is the place where there are more rivers and less water, more cows and less milk and you can see farther and see less than any soot on the habitable globe. BIGGEST DANCE EVER GIVEN IN H0LBR00K--DAYS OF HOLBROOK. BASEBALL GAME SUN DAY FIZZLES ON . ACCTOFWEATHER The baseball game in Winslow Sunday for which a great many Holbrookites traveled to Winslow, was a fizzle on account of the wea ther. Such things are of course beyond the scope of human arrangement, but that does not serve to soothe the feelings of a red hot baseball fan who is all set to see a sizzling game and then is disappointed by a deluge such ai the one Sun day. Up to the time Jupiter Pluvius took a hand in the game Holbrook was ahead the score being four to two. During this time Brown Capps had made two home runs. He was evidently in fine fettle. The game next Sunday, August Gth, will be held on the home diamond. No need to tell everybody to be there. You couldn t keep most of them away. WINSLOW MAIL CHANGES HANDS The Winslow Mail of last week carries the informa tion that we have a new editor in our midst. Mr. Sam Proctor of Winslow, has taken over the plant and will give it his personal at tention and Supervision. We are glad to welcome Mr. Proctor to the profes sional circle, and feel sure that his genial character and acomplishments will make him an acquisition and his paper a success. MEETING AT L.D.S. CHURCH YERY INSTRUCTIVE Dr. Talmadge and Judge Hart, both of Salt Lake Jity, who spoke in the L. D. 3. Church faced a large and appreciative audience on last Sunday night. Dr. lalmadge, the principal speaker, took as the topic of his masterly address that famous oration of the mis sionary Paul when he looked at the altar dedicated by the Athenians lo the Unknown God." Dr. Talmadge's theme was a dissertation on the falling away of humanity from God, and the efforts that should be made by all people to find him once more. Dr. Talmadge goes from here to the Grand Canyon for a couple of days rest as his throat is very badly tir ed after the exigeant de mands of the last two weeks, spent at the Convention Conferences both in St. Johns and in Snowflake. After a brief sojourn in the north he will go to the Maricopa Stake, where the conference will he held at Pine up in the mountains so that the people who gather together will not suf fer so with the heat as they would in the south. Dr. Talmadge is a man of very pleasant personality, and one whom it is truly a pleasure to meet. FOREST OFFICE- LEASES ROOMS We are informed by Mr. Julius Wetzler that the Forestry Dept. has engaged rooms in the H. S. Wetzler building and will occupy same in the near future. This is good news to Hol brook and means the addi tion of two families to our growing numbers. NAVAJO COUNTY.

Gardner, the notorious mail bandit, who rifled most of the mail and left same in a secluded place in an unin habited section. It is greatly regretted that you have been inconvenienc ed by this delay, but there is some satisfaction in know ing that Gardner is now serving a twenty-five year sentence in the United States Penitentiary at Lea venworth, Kansas.

Root for the HOME TEAM Be Loyal to Holbrook &ceseexeseeaeeeeesseeeeeeeeeesceceeseeeeeeee TIPS TOJTIPPLERS It is not safe to be a- tip pler or even to have the wherewithal to tipple if you reside in Lakeside. Mr. Geo. Woolford, Dep uty Sheriff of that section, this week brought in Mr. Andy Erland charged with a violation of Mr. Vclstead's well known principals. Up on arraignment in the Sup erior Court we are informed that he pled guilty and es caped with a $200 fine. It s safe to say that "Geo rge" is on the job. THE OIL COLUMN It will be impossible to guarantee all items appear ing under this heading, but the most nearly authtntic news will be printed. Should a rumored item appear, it will be labeled as such. Any an nouncement from any of the company managers will be so designated. We will try to print all the oil news. ADAMANA The News . has always maintained the policy of making no statement re garding the development of the Holbrook Field with out positive knowledge of its accuracy. For this rea son there has been very lit tle published of the progress of the Adamana well, which is being drilled by the Ari zona Consolidated Oil Com pany upon a royalty basis. For over a year this well has fought a very serious casing job, which was much more difficult than at first anticipated and has finally been overcome. Four inch casing has been set and the water positively shut off. Drilling is now proceeding steadily and it is expected that the bit will be around 2350 feet by the latter part of next week, The com pany had every reason to belive that they were enter ing a very productive oil stratum when drilling ceas ed at 2345 feet and next week may tell the world that Holbrook is to be the greatest oil field in America. TAYLOR INTERESTS Dr. S. Earl Taylor returned from a two weeks trip to New York and other eastern cities, and reports that he has had one of the most successful trips since he came to Holbrook, so far as enlisting active cooperation of powerful financial inter ests is concerned. Without attempting to announce in detail the plans which are now going for ward. Dr. Taylor expressed the belief that not only will the Higgins Dome well be fully financed and started in the very near future, but that other even more far reaching developments from the standpoint of the ulti mate developments of this field are now definitely un der way, concerning the lie' tails of which fuller annouri cement will be made in due time. ; VoL 14 No. 14 GAME COMMITTED TO INSANE ASYLUM Manuel Diez of Winslow was brought up to Holbrook early this last week. When examined he was ' adjudged insane and sent down to Phoenix to the State Asylum for the Insane. Mr. B. J. Stewart of Heber took charge of him on the trip south. DeDUtv Sheriff W n Kellv brought the man un from Winslow and bears several long scratches on his physiognomy to witness tht man's temper. Really when a man s running for office you would be more careful of his looks. . : SEWER ASSESSMENTS CUT IN HALF . The Citv Council in a meeting held on last Tues day evening took up the matter of sewers. After due deliberation it was de cided that the previous as sessment rate could bemore- than cut in half. The as: sessment will be sent out to property owners at an earlv date and will be at the rate of $15.00 per twenty-five toot lot. This is less than half the amount which - was previously thought neces? sary. . ; These assessments must be naid within' the ensuinc thirty days as the law re quires that the money necessary- for the work be on hand before the bids on same are called for ; The sewer laterals will be run down everv allev making connections as easy as possible. The mam trunk line from the sehonl house to the sewage tank is already in place. . PROGRESSIVE STORE OFFERS HELP TO - BUSY HOUSEWIVES The advertising columns of The News carry a new departure in the "ad" of the A. and B. Schuster Co. Store for the current week. Helpful Hints for Housewiv-; es by One of Them are us- ually welcomed by the lad ies.

From time to time there will be hints for afternoon tea menus, the hurry-up dinner and even the mid night lunch served after the dance or party. . W. G. Kelly was in Hol brook Sunday. As a candi date for sheriff Mr. Kelly is setting a lively pace.
