SHEAK THIEVES AROUND ' Last Monday Mrs. Wal lace Newman wa3 unfortun ate enough to loose several pieces of jewelry which she greatly prized, rings etc, during a short absence from the house. ,The balief is that it wa3 one of a party of young fellows who were circulating in town getting subscriptions and saying that they wanted help to go thru the University. An effort was made to find them but . they made themselves scarce and probably left in a machine. We of Holbrook are unaccustomed to com bating this style of sneak thievery, but it would seem to behoove us to keep a sharp lookout in the future. - " : o mini am a nAII1tITI flfcW 1KA1N olntUULfc East Bound No. 2x 8 22 z lOx 9:00 a.m. --10:25 a.m. 4:10 p.m. 11:05 p.m. West Bound No. 21 1 7x xU.

WOODS, THE IN- SOURCE HAN Many a time the big, square-jawed giant, with a complexion like a Ben Davis apple is a lot - nearer the cemetery than the little hollow-chested shrimp with a hole in his lung that you could drop a cat through. How many time3 have you picked up the morning paper over your morning grape fruit and seen the picture of the buddy you pi yed bridge with only the night before last, and read that same old line that the city editor seems t o always keep "Standing" "The deceased ate a hearty dinner with his family and appeared to be in PERFECT HEALTH." My idea of hell would be for a man to wake ud dead and realize that he had for gotten or neglected, or been too bull-headed to take out enough insurance for the protection of his family. There never was a sound er business proposition in vented than insurance. If 1 didn't have all the insurance I could possibly carry 1 wouldn't sleeD till I either got it or got turned down.

FIRE COMPANY ORGANIZES Holbrook has a bona fide fire company, and for the first time in all its years of existence.so far as we know. If we are wrong correct us. About forty young men sign ed up and we can sleep bet ter now knowing that in case of fire there will be some adequate means oi fighting it. They will hold regular monthly meetings. Mr. Bundy was elected ire Chief, Elmer Flanigan, First Lieut, and Jiy Patterson 2nd Lieut of the organiza tion. A meeting will be held next Tuesday to complete the details of the organiza tion. . OUT TO BREAK RECORD The record established by JiPonnAn Rail" RoL-ay ftf R days and 3 hours for a motor cycle trip across the conti nent is about give way to another record hung up by a couple of youngsters. Wells Bennet who left L. A. last Tuesday at midnight, reach ing Holbrook in the wee sma hours ot Thursday morning where he was join. ed by his team mate who had been waiting for him for several days is the one who will attempt to shorten the time. His plan is to make it to New York in five days. If they do they will not know whether they are iii ing motor cycles or flying machines. Young Hageman who waited here for his partner had an experience in avia tion near Socorro on his way here andUfended in arock pile and a skinned nose. De spite this fact he is enthusi astic about the game and we hope that they win a gainst time. A COMPANY , WITH AN IDEAL Mr. Jennings of the local auto company of that name has just secured the rights as distributor of the West inghouse Battery for use in autos, farm machinery, etc. In remarking upon the quali ties of the battery which he represents, Mr. Craig of Los Angeles said that Westing house had so established the validity and worth of their name throughout the world and were so proud of the fact that they insisted that their product be worthy of the name it bears, and it is. Mr. Jennings is fortunate in having secured the distribut ing agency as it links this section up with the Coast City. It is the pride and policy of the Westinghouse organiz ation to do things exception ally well, to build things un usually good, and guard vVestinghQuse quality with more than ordinary zeal. : . Mr. - Jennings has shown himself unusually active in procuring the very best for his customers and feels that this new guaranteed service is another addition which mil prove the adequate answer to most batterv needs. Last Sunday Mrs. James Donohoe of the Adamana Hotel drove down to Hol brook and spent a few hours. She was accompanied by Miss Fuller who is an opera tor at the Santa Fe Station and Miss Mary Beasley who has just returned from Cali-ornia. SENSATIONAL SHOOTING EN SUES UPONBOYS' SCRAP One Man Dead One In Jail as Result of Children's Quarrel Last Saturday R.C. Reed er and C.C. White, both re sidents of the Spring Lake School District nine miles north of Concho became the principals in a grim tragedy resulting from a puerile quarrel arising between their children. One, R.C. Reeder, lies dead, shot three times thru the back with a 30-30 and the . other i3 behind the bars awaiting his trial with its aftermath of tears and anguish to hi3 family. ' ! We have been informed that the entire tragedy a- rose from the fact that the sons of the two men had a disagreement in school and settled it by the old method of having a scrap. Unplea santness over this fight de veloped between the two families, grew, and hnaiiy ended with the shooting of one of the fathers by the other last Saturday. The dead man leaves a wife and three children. The shooting happened while the victim was return ing from a spring where he had gone to haul water. Both men were ranchers and had lived in the vicinity for some time. U. U. White is being held pending a prelim inary trial we are informed. It is of course too bad that Lboys will fight but it is much more regrettable that the older people should take up the quarrel. Left to him self the average boy will for get all about his grievances long before the second game of bail or third round of marbles. Making to much of children's differences has often resulted badly, but never more so than in the ase of this lamentable tragedy. SCHOOL NOTES Miss De Gomez paid a visit to the School this past week.

ARIZONA. OCT 27. 1922 A PAINFUIACCIDENT Bill Woods 2nd who is attending Roswell this year met with a most painful ac cident last week. While sit ting on a railing oh the sec ond floor of one of .the build ings, the railing broke and he fell two stories' to the ground. The bones in his wrist were split and the whole hand badly bruised. He is recovering nicely and it is extremely fortunate that his injuries were no wors3. Bill was unconscious for a good many hours after the fall, and several, of the boys with him were 'also in jured.

HEAD ON COLLISION THURSDAY NEAR KINGMAN THREE LIGHT ENGINES CRASH IN- TO NO. 10 The mistake of an hour by engineers reading their orders sent three light en gines careening down the track near Kingman Thurs day afternoon to crash into a late east bound No. 10. Fortunately no one was seriously injured but trains were made very late. ATTENDS NORTHERN FED. CLUB MEETING Mrs. Jesse Hulet returned last week from her trip to the meeting of the- Federat ed Woman's Club of the Northern Division held at Williams. She is exceeding- Is enthusiastic concerning the convention, and brings back'many fine ideas for the Club year. The concensus of ODinion of those present at the meet ing seemed to be that the Northern Federation should join the State Federation, and automatically become a member of the National Federation. It was also a erreed that the members should take a determined stand against the wide spread divorce evil. The next annual meeting of the Northern Federation will be held in Winslow, and after that the Holbrook Wo man's Club rather expects to entertain them here for the next year. SHIP OUTCATILE Geo. Peterson early this veek shipped out 700 head of cattle to Helm, Cal. where they will be put on grass for the season. Previously Mr. Peterson has shipped out 400 head. The clerk of the weather for Arizona must be a near relation of the famous Mr. Volstead as he believes in having things dry. Many of the cattle men are shipp ing out stock on account of shortage of grass and water on their range. SONEARAND JET SO FAR Game? Yes. Plenty of it to be seen, but so wary that it would not come within gun shot of the eager hunt ers. That is the condition of affairs that confronted Messrs. Branigan, Roberts, and Austin on their trip 'last Saturday and Sunday in the hunt through the region south of Heber. They saw two bands of turkies and several deer, but they came home with empty bags. 0 Messrs. Axline and Baird of the Merchant s and Stock Grower's Bank together with a couple of other gentlemen left Saturday night for the country south on a short hunting trip. Unfortunate ly they were not able to leave until after dark and as the roads in that section are rather confusing they missed the proper track and did not meet with friends who were awaiting their arrival. They were not fortunate en ough to find any game, but Mr. Axline says that the next time he goes hunting over those roads he will know where he is going. So that is something gained. One of the horse thieves apprehended b y Deputy Sheriff W. G. Kelley was brought up to the County Bastue last week. ENROUTE TO CONVENT - inn ION The officials of the Forest ry Dept. were in Holbrook Thursday on their way to Cooley where they will hold their yearly convention up among the pines. They will spend about a week in con ference there and on their return the plan of the Hol brook business men is to take the visitors on a trip to the Petrified Forest. I They are from every for est in the U. S. including Alaska. They will confer on matters of management. MRS. KATE V. KINNEY Mrs. Kate V. Kinney, the republican candidate for County School Superinten dent at the coming election, comes before the electors of Navajo County as an able, experienced and eminently qualified teacher of many years service. Words of highest commendation are heard from every locality where she has taught. She is a resident of the state since 1900 and of the county for twenty years and she has held a first grade teacher's certificate in the territory and state during that period. She is a graduate of the Campbell Normal University formerly of Holton Kansas, now the Kansas City Univer sity of Kansas City. She is also a graduate of the Kan sas State Normal School of Emporia with the degree of A. B. and holds a Life Dip loma 'to teach. She also holds State certificates from Miss ouri and Minnesota. In com petition she won the Helen Miller Gould western- schol arship, offered the Western States by New York Univer sity, given by Helen Gould in memory of her mother. For two year3 she has been principal of the public schools of St Josepband is now teaching at Manila. Her experience in teach ing, in the conduct of schools and her long residence in the state and county amply qualify her for the position to which she aspires. Her reputation as a woman of refinement, her record as a teacher, her Americanization work, experience in business affairs, all must appeal to the voters of the county that in the selecting of her to the omce of County Sup- eritendent of schools there is an assurance of an effi cient and impartial adminis tration of the county's school affairs. Mrs. Kmnev is a republican and a candi date upon the Republican ticket, but the office is abso lutely non-partisan. A vote for Mrs. Kinney is to advance the efficiency of our school system. Her election means com petent management and in telligent supervision, adv. ' 1 o W.W. Franklin, who put the "over" in Overland sell ing left this week for Phoe nix, called there for consult ation by the heads of the Overland business for this district. Mrs. Franklin is all ready in the Capitol City, having driven down several days ago. Navajo County Beauty Contest Voting Coupon 1500 VOTES Name.

Vol 14 No. 26 LARGE CONSIGNMENT nr i ithded ur OF LUMBER HERE The Cooley Lumber Co. this week received one of the largest consignments of lumber ever shipped into Holbrook for a local hrm. Three car loads of lumber were on the sidetrack this week billed to them. ' Two of them for the construct ion of the new Schuster warehouse and the third is for their well equipped stock room. But the way Manag er Cousins makes the build ings fly up to completion when he takes hold of a job is sufficient warrant that even this amount of lumber will not last Jong. ALWAYS ON THE JOB This week Deputy Sheriff W. G. Kelly of Winslow added to his laurels by cor raling a couple of .young men and a girl of about nin eteen whom he foundtoking a cross country tour in Hud son car which was the prop- A. - J J eriy oi parties residing in Denver. The names of the two young men were Al Ste wart and James Gordon and the girl claimed to be Gord on's wife To show alert Kelly is, the car taken on Oct. 7 in anoth er state and isnow held here. The party were capt ured about four miles north of the Chevelon Bridge bet ween Winslow and Holbrook by Kelly and Gardner last Sunday. They have waived extradition and the Color ?.do will soon reach Winslow aud return home with the captives. This is but another inst- y's unwavering allegiance to duty. No. matter is too involved, no case is too diff icult of solution, no trail too long to follow in the pur suance of his duties as an officer. He is the stuff from which notable sheriffs are m n ri fina orcrtifA wnwi- pted by we know not what self interest or fear may att empt to injure such an off icer, butin the minds of all thinking people there can be but one answer to it. He is a capable and conscienti ous officer of the law and consequently hated and feared by those who have sought to infringe upon it and have been thwarted by his acumen and allegiance to it. Anson Smith, editor and owner of The Mohave Coun ty Miner paid us a very pleasant visit last Friday.
