SERIOUS ACCIDENT ON ST-JOHNS ROAD , Late last week a very ser ious accident haDDened on the road between St. Johns and Holbrook, just a few miles this side 01 the steel bridge near Hunt. A large truck driven by Jimmy May bens of St. Johns skidded off the grade and overturned crushing its driver as it roll ed over. The truck we are told made a complete revolu tion and came to a stop right side up. Mr. Maybens was not dis covered for about an hour after the accident, a tourist driving by during the time, but seeing no one concluded that the truck had merely been left standing there. Later another driver made a complete examination and saw. Maybens body half hid den by the truck. He was taken to Hunt and later to St, Johns, where Dr. Bould in has charge of the case. The man was unconscious for about twelve hours and is very badly hurt but it is believed that he will recov er. Three of his ribs wyere crushed and it is feared that there may ; be internal . in juries: Mr. Maybens is a married man with a family of small children. A LUCKY HUNTER THO LAME ' Mr, C. T. Smith went out after, them last Sunday and of all the party, and they were five in number he was the only one who registered a bulls eye and brought down a turkey. - He says that it was worth all-the stiffness he acquired in riding, the hurricane deck of a bronc during the ' affair.1 The tur key may be eaten up by this time but he can still remem ber how lame he was, so we guess the horse made as great an impression as the bird.

Vol. 14 No. 25 ALCHESAY FAMOUS APACHE INDIAN CHIEFJIVES TALK The Lad IPS Missirvnarv Society of Cooley had an ex tremely interesting meeting recently. Thev were ad dressed by Rev. Guentherof wniteriver, . and also by Alchesav. the bier chief nf the Apaches. Alchesay is an old man and has been great changes during his life time. He has been on the side of the whites in most of the earlv Indian troubles, acting; as chief of scouts under Crook and other famous generals. Very recently he has been converted and has joined the Lutheran Church at. Whiteriver. He made his speech to the ladies through an interpreter and very truly we believe said that the early trouble between, the white man and the Indian was brought about bv bad white men and bad Indians. He is a man of remark able character and it is sel dom you find one who can speak with equal sentent iousness, be the white or red. Asked once years ago what he thought of the rough country around Ft. A L 1-1 Apacne, ne saia: "Well. God made the coun try, so it's all right but if the white man had made it we would never have for given him." y WONDERFUL PICTURE HERE MONDAY Prisoner of Zenda at Pasiime . ine management of the Pastime Theatre has made arrangements for the pre sentation of another super film in Holbrook.
