General School News
From the number of applica
tions coming into the office of
the county school superintendent
lately the trustees of the differ
ent districts need have no fear
of a teacher shortage this year
Most of the districts have em
ployed their teachers only about
one tenth of the teaching posi
tions now being vacant
The educational department of
the State has sent out a warning
to the employers of teachers to
be careful in the employment of
teachers as a number of teachers
are trying to secure positions in
Arizona whose past records are
not of a character to help build
up our school system
A large number of the clerks
of the boards of trustees have
brought their accounts and rec
ords to the county school super
intendent the past week to be
checked and balanced fpr the
year A great deal of credit is
due the clerks for the manner in
which they have kept their ac
counts and records during the
The trustees of Snfford district
after carefully studying the
financial condition of the school
have materially reduced the
amount of special tax to be levied
on the district for high school
purposes The special levy will
be about one half of the amount
asked for the previous year
During these times of financial
stress the taxpayers of the Saf
ford school district should give
their hearty support to the
trustees for their efforts

Little Baby Dies
from Skunk Bite
The little baby of Mr and Mrs
Ernest Shumway of Thatcher
who was so badly bitten by a
skunk about a month ago died
in El Paso Texas last Friday
The Shumways and a party of
friends were on their way to
St Johns Arizona and had
camped near Cooley for the
night The children had been
put to bed and the mother and
grandmother had been left with
them while the others went to
work on a car that had been
giving them trouble
Suddenly a scream was heard
from the baby and Mrs Morten
sen ran to it and saw a skunk
with its teeth and clawB sunk in
in the babys face and nose
Mrs Mortensen had to work for
several minutes before the skunk
was dragged off
The next morning the Shum
ways went to the nearest rail
road station and took the first
train for El Paso The baby
was given the Pasteur treatment
and was under the care of the
best physicians in that city but
did not respond to the treatment
The physicians were baffled as to
how to treat the child as they
had never given the treatment
to one so young On the 21st
day convulsions set in and death
came to relieve the little sufferer
The little body was brought to
Thatcher Saturday and funeral
services were held Sunday after
noon at 300 oclock in the
church Music was furnished
by the choirs from both the
Thatcher wards The speakers
were Professor Taylor President
John F Nash President Kim
ball and Professor Payne In
terment was made in the ceme
tery at Thatcher
Mr and Mrs Shumway have
the sympathy of everyone in
their bereavement
Come In The
Waters Fine
The use of water in the treat
ment of disease was well known
and practiced by the ancients
David speaks of the fountain of
life and Zaccharrias calls Christ
the healing founcain Four hun
dred years B C Hippocraes
who is called the Father of
Medicine employed it as did
most of the doctors Priessnitz
modernized the treatment in the
middle of the last century and
his patients from all over the
world became missionaries for
the method
Ordinary bath are very health
ful through their tonic and cir
culatory effect but medicated
waters are much more potent if
properly applied Probably the
most important element which
has been found in many hot
springs is radium lhiB rare
element has the unique faculty
of attacking diseased tissue three
times in preference to normal
tissue For this reason it is
successfully employed in the
treatment of gastric and intesti
nal troubles cataarh rheuma
tism and all kinds of inflamma
tions Its wonderful reconstruc
tive power is doubtless what led
one of the guests at the Indian
Hot Springs to call the Beauty
Springthe Fountain of Youth
Half the guests at the Indian
Hot Springs have been here be
fore Father Barette who has
probably built more churches
than any other priest in Arizona
was advised by his physician that
he give up the idea of being a
priest because he would never
live to practice his profession
He began treating himself in
natural hot springs and after
thirty three years of very active
life is building a new church at
Claypool Arizona and says he
is enjoying better health than
ever before He conjes to fhp
Springs fwice a year any js always
spirit shines through a wonqerr
fully kind face
Samuel Black more Is also a
frequent visitor He comes from
Tucson and says he is eighty
years young A blood pressure
of 118 rather refutes the rule of
the age plus 100 He could
easily pass for sixty five if he
cared to conceal his age which
he doesnt
We are gradually clearing the
pool of the moss which is no
small job If anyone will tell us
how to do it without injuring the
water we will call him blessed
Remember that hatha oro free
on Mondays nnd Fridays For a
suit and towel a charge of 25
cents will be made On other
days the bath alone is 25 cents
and suits also 25 cents It costs
25 cents to properly laundry and
disinfect a suit
Jerome Since his retirement
from the presidency Woodrow
Wilson is personally more popu
lar than he was at any time he
held that high office Wild dem
onstrations occur whenever he
appears in public
This isthe word brought direct
from Washington by Miss Dorothy
Averyt a clerk in the census
bureau who is spending a
months vacation at Clarksdale
Arizona with her parents Mr
and Mrs Flumerfelt after a
three years absence at the Na
tional capital
Grows More Popular
Mr Wilson is even more pop
ular today than he -was in the
early days of the war when he
was the idol of the American
people and the hope of the world
Miss Averyt stated to the Verde
Copper News He is again re
garded as one of the great men
of the age People in Washing
ton are amazed at the revulsion
of public sentiment from what it
was in tne final months of his
administration when he was the
object of so much criticism
Cannot Walk
Perhaps his physical condi
tion has something to do with
with winning him sympathy
He cannot walk and whenever
he appears he carries a cane and
is supported by an attendant
The people simply go wild at
the sight of him and the cheer
ing is deafening Policemen and
detectives have to protect Mr
Wilson from enthusiastic admir
ers who want to break in and
shake his hand

for the fiscal year ending June
30 1922 has been completed

the levy for this year is 62585
showing an increase of 1000
Last years road fund levy
was 30000 and this yeaf3 levy
is 40000 but will probably be
reduced to 30000 the same as
last year
The estimated receipts of the
road fund for last year was 300
000 while this year the receipts
are 300300
The actual expenditures in the
school fund amounted to 132
10378 The estimated amount

ampunt of estimated receipts is
48000 and the total amount to
be raised by direct taxation for
schools is 7036238
Lumber Cut for 1920
Same as in 1919
The 1920 lumber cut of the
United States varied little from
that of 1919 and the chances are
that it was less rather than great
er state officials of the Forest
Service United States Depart
ment of Agriculture This opin
ion is based gn reports received
from 927 large mills represent
Iflg abqut pne half of the annual
put of the Goiintry cpmpared
with reports from the same mills
In 1919 as reported to the Bu
reau of the Census The total
reported cut of these mills was
16709115 M feot in 1920 as
against 16254812 M feet during
1919 an increase of 34 per cent
A heavy increase in cut is re
ported from Washington Ore-
gon California Idaho and Mon
tana The New York cut also
t increased But there are indica
tions of a ten per cent decrease
jn the cut of the Lake States
nd npp a general falling off in
the production of southern pino
except In Georgia and South Car
lina On account of the unset
tled business conditions in 1920
it is impossible this year to draw
conclusions with confidence from
incomplete returns
