THE STAR CAR HERE
NEW MOTOR ARRIVES
The creation of the Star
car is the most important
and brilliant accomplishment
of any individual indentified
with the automobile industry
since its inception.
Smartness in looks, thor
oughness and modern design
in a low priced car were un
heard of until the Star was
created by W. C. Durant,
the pioneer builder of auto
mobiles and identified with
the introduction and success
of the Cadillac, Buick. Oak
land, Oldsmobile and Durant
cars.
The Star car marks the
most advanced step since the
introduction of the automo
bile, for it provides for the
first time a quality automo
bile, standardized in con
struction and operation for
a modest sum of money.
W. VV. Franklin the local
auto dealer has just received
a carload of Star cars. They
created a great deal of in
terest on Railroad Ave. and
while they were being un
loaded three of them were
sold. They are a new de
parture in car building and
bid fair to catch the careful
buyer's eye. They have been
in such demand since their
introduction in big cities that
many dealers will not pro
mise delivery under twenty
days.
However, Mr. Franklin
has secured, in addition to
three on hand, another ship
ment which will be in short
ly after the New Year
opens.

ADAMANA WELL
Officials of the Adamana
Company report continued
good progress with the drill
at 2,845 feet yesterday at
noon. Formation is still
black shale which carries a
considerable quantity of fos
sil. It is believed that every
extra foot of the heavy cap
ping which the bit has been
cutting for several hundred
feet means added production
when the next sand is open-
eu up. ine noie sun con
tinues hot and the drillers
declare that this is almost
an infallible indication of
approaching production.
CHRISTMAS PROGRAM
FRIDAY
On last Friday night the
L. D. S. Church had a very
delightful Christmas pro
gram. Mr. W. B. Farr made
a very interesting talk on
'the spirit of Christmas,
there was a re-told story by
Mrs. Hatch, and a delight
ful solo by Mrs. Marshal
Flake. In addition Mrs.
Chas. Thomas read a most
touching little poem entitled
The Gift That You Cannot
See" and there was in addi
tion a great deal of very fine
Christmas music and a
pianologue by Mrs. McCleve.
The ladies trio and the
quartet as well as several
other vocal selections were
very enjoyable.

"THE
. W. FRANKLIN, Dealer
APPOINTED COUNTY
ENGINEER
Mr. West, who has en
deared himself to all Nav
ajo Co. ' automobile drivers
and owners by the energetic
manner in which he has
pushed the work of good
roads in this vicinity has
been appointed County En
gineer, and we think this
section is to be congratulat
ed on retaining his services.
Mr. West returned late
last week f.om : a trip to
Phoenix where he was in
attendance on a meeting of
the Industrial Congress and
latter as a delegate to the
Good Roads Ass. meeting
held in the southern part of
the state.
He says that the latter
was a "hummer" and we
take it that means some
thing cor.' mendatory. At
anyrate Mr. West came
home with lots of new
machinery to use in the upkeep-
and maintenance of
roads and that is sort'o like
bringing home the bacon.
WILL VISIT IN PASADENA
Mr. A. G. Brown, Cashier
of The First National, left
for Pasadena on Friday. Mr.
Brown will makeonly a short
stay on the Coast returning
to Holbrook next week, but
there is a powerful attrac
tion out there, in the shape
of a lady-wife and young
daughter, which makes it
imperative that he should
pay the Crown, City a short
visit.
is Here
The Star Car has been eagerly await
ed by the Motor World. We received six
this week and three were. sold while un
loading. The Star combines a wonderful
motor, an economy of gas, a stylish body
and a moderate price in a manner never
seen before in any one car.
Call at our salesroom and inspect ti e
new arrivals. You are cordially welcrme.
There will be competent drivers to demon
strate anv model you desire to examine.
STAR IS THE CAR"
Holbrook, Arizona
FORMER EDITOR HERE
Mr. Peas, who was at one
time editor of the old Hol
brook Argus, was in town
this week as a guest of Mr.
and Mrs. Lloyd Henning.
During his time here- Mr.
Henning was associated in
the newspaper work with
Mr. Peas. Mr. Peas tells
us that he can hardly realize
that this is the same town,
so great has been its growth
since the time when the
Court House stood 'way out
in the country.'
NEW COUNCIL-
MENJELECTED
At the last meeting of the
City Council, Bill Williams
of the Navajo Garage was
selected to fill the vacancy
left by the resignation of J.
M. Lee who has recently
left to take up his residence
in Needles.
Mr. Williams will be a
valuable addition to the
Town Council as he has
shown himself to be greatly
interested in the betterment
of roads by his work on the
Highway Commission, of
which he has long been a
member.
The Council is keen sight
ed in selecting a man of pro
gressive ideas to fill this re
sponsible position. Our
town is of great importance
to us and its business should
be intrusted to men who
have its welfare at heart.
Mr. C. H.' Jennings drove
up to Concho on Tuesday.

for the Taylor-Fuller Well

the main streets of the re

In some places the street is

points to the proper level.
The preliminary survey was
made Thursday.
Porter St., leading north
from from the Santa Fe Sta
tion will also be traded and
gravelled. The work com
menced on Friday morning

might to even make the clow

mixture of sand, gravel and
'dobe has cemented under
usage until it is like, grani
toid paving. $v
