Scott and Womack, both of the same place, was in Holbrook last Sat urday. While here the last two named gentlemen took the third degree in the Chal cedony Lodge of the Maso nic order in our city. The weather was cold so we sup pose that like all other live stock the goat was frisky. GALLUP VJST0R HERE Mrs. Hancock of Gallup was a Holbrook visitor last Monday. She came down on No. 9 and returned on No. 8 the same day. The train was so late that she did not have very long in the city besides that needed for business. But her many friends who chanced to meet her on the street were de lighted by the coincidence. A WORDOHHANKS I wish to thank the people of Holbrook and Navajo Co. for the support they gave me in the recent election, and will do my best to merit their continued confidence. Sincerely, Lucretia W. FJanigan Dr. Phil VV. Hie.?, brother-in-law of Harry L)e Grasse, is in Holbrook at present. He is contemplating spend ing the winter in our city, but has not decided certain ly on this plan. Dr. Rsig comes from Toledo, Ohio.

Dated this 5th day of October A. D. 19Z2. R. L. NEWMAN. Sheriff. Navajo County, Arizona. Official Paper of Navajo County and the OIL MACHINERY HERE SOON. Dr. S. Earl Taylor has re ceived the bills of lading on the machinery ordered for the iliggins Dome Well. The car lias not yet arrived but according to telegrams just received at the city offi ce a tracer has been sent out which will expedite its delivery. As soon as the machinery arrives it will be taken to the location and work will commence immediately. A Standard lag with a drill making an eighteen inch hole gives promise of an intention to keep on go ing until they strike the "black gold." It is only in extremely rare or we might say, exceptional cases in which the oil is found at a shallow depth. The eigh teen inch hole as planned at this location will permit of drilling to a depth of 40G0 feet if this be necessary to reach the oil pool. It is the intention of those inter ested to make this well a thorough test of the region. Nothing could be more encouraging than this atti tude toward the field. A well on the Iliggins Dome property would mean much to every citizen and proper ty owner in Holbrook. SUCCESSFUL YOUNG BUSINESS MAN WINS CHARMING YOUNG LADY Very pleasant news has been imparted to the Hol brook friends of Richard Schuster. No less, than the fact of his engagement to Miss Miriam Stelig, only daughter of Mr. Sam Seelig of Los Angeles, who in com pany with Miss Helen Schu ster spent a short time in Hoibrook this fall. We feel that Mr. Schuster is to be warmly congratul ated on his exceeding good fortune. Miss Seelig is a most' charming and unas suming young woman of jnusual good sense and well cultivated talents. S h e completed her education at Stanford, graduating with high honors and was a mem ber of the Phi Beta Kappa Society. Dick who is. a son of A dolph Schuster of Los Ange les and Holbrook, is well known to all Holbrook resi dents. He has been most most successful in his man agement of the large busi ness interests of the firm and needs only this happi ness to complete his life. The marriage will probably take place during the late winter or (any spring months. . The young couple are planning to make their home m Holbrook where Mr. Schu ster's large business inter ests make his presence im perative. I he betrothal is being celebrated by the families of the two young people with a dinner dance for the immediate connect ions given in Los Angeles on Saturday. Dick left for Los Angeles last Saturday and will probably snend a good deal of his time" there until the first of the year, Well we are only young once and we envy and congratu late them. The local Red Cross has reorganized and Judge Sid ney Sapp will act as Chair man for the ensuing year with Mrs. Jesse Hulet as secretary. At the meeting last week it was decided to hold the Red Cross Roll Call on Saturday, Nov. 11. "HOLBROOK.

Yes, indeed. It must be to accomodate all the Overland Cars that Bill Franklin insists on get ting in and selling. They will have to lengthen the roads out about "another mile this week because he has just gotten in a carload of new Overland and Willys Knight models: ITS ALL OYER NOW Well, election is all over now. The winners have won, and the losers have lost and it will all be the same a hundred years hence. The bast th'nj to do BE FORE an election is to work hard for what you think is right and tha very best thing to do AFTER an elect ion is to f oreet all about it. The man who.were elect ed are the choice of the people and we are sure are all perfectly capable of fill ing their omces competent ly. The News extends its congratulations to all the fortunate candidates and wishes them well during their incumbency in office. Next Thursday evening, at the High School Gym nasium, at 8:00 p. m., The Midland Lyceum Bureau will present THE CHICAGO ORCHESTRAL CLUB, which is the first of a series of five entertainments to ba presented in Holbrook under the auspicies of the Elks of Holbrook. The season ticket, including tax, is $5.50; single admission, $1.25. Holbrook Oil Field Nov. 10. 1922 FALLS FOURTEEN FEET BREAKS RIB Mr. and Mrs. Ed Howell were in. Holbrook Monday on their way home from a visit in Winslow. Mrs. Howell has been staying with her daughter Zelma, now Mrs. G. C. Bazell, dur ing her convalescence from injuries received about three weeks ago consequent upon a hard fall. She walked in to the opening to a base ment cellar and fell four teen feet to the cement floor below, and sustained no fur ther injuries than a broken rib and some scratches. Mrs. Bazell was extremely fortunate that the accident had no more serious result, but we are sure that a fall of fourteen feet would have broken our morale even worse than the rib. She is getting well rapidly and her mother left for home Mon day. Mr. Herbert of the Sup erintendent's Office in Win- jslow, was in Holbrook Tues day. Fred Baca of Heber was in town during the past week. FOOTBALL TEAM NEEDS ADDING MACHINE FOR ATHLETIC EQUIPMENT The football game Tues day afternoon between the Emerson Hi Team of Flag and the Holbrook Hi Team made it exceedingly difficult for the pencil pushers. In deed, they almost needed a Burroughs Adding machine to keep up with the players. The final score was 70 to 0 in favor of Holbrook. The Emerson Hi boys were game youngsters and did some pretty nervy tack ling. The Holbrook Team used its forward pass to great advantage. Their aerial work in this line has Ace Rickenbacker of the flying squadron backed off the map. Several of the team did not play in the second half but used subtltutes as they will have a hard tussle on their hands Saturday at Prescott. Soon after Roy Cross was put in he was knocked to the land where the little birdies sing and stayed there for several min utes. Football does seem to be slightly rougher than tiddeley winks and more strenuous than jack-straws. Our team plays with Pres cott on Saturday. Our best wishes go with them. SEWER CONTRACT LET Just before going to press we are informed that the City Council has let the con tracts for the Town sewers to A. E. Thompson of Phoe nix. The-sum w-e ' Under stand is about $14,000, Work will commence imme diately and the contractors have wired for a carload oi sewer pipe.
