In another column of this issue of The Guardian will be
found an article by H D Du Bos favoring Route No 1
as the best route for the paved highway through town
Route No 1 passes through tovn on Second South
streetalongside of and north of the Arizona Eastern Rail
road tracks turning at fourth est street and then going
north past the court house to the Thatcher road
It would seem from Mr Du Bois argument that Route
No 1 should be chosen chiefly because if the paved road
came through town on any other street we would have a
onejstreet town We cannot agree with Mr Du Bois
We do bclievethat the best route for the paved highway
through town to be Route No 3 which enters town on the
east turning north at the old mill thence north two blocks
to Main street thence west on Main street to the court
house thence north to Thatcher road
Route No 3 would traverse tlve town from east to west
and would be on the main business street of the town
where it belongs The Main street of this town as well as
every other town is the principal street of the town and
most popular highway through any town It would be
foolish to place this paved highway on a street just be
cause of several factories being located there
The taxpayers should vote for Route No 3 Main Street

END OF DRUG ADDICTS IN SIGHT
Dr Copeland Health Officer of the big City of
HAPPIEST GRANDMOTHER
New
York says when the Miller bill regulating the importa
tion and exportation of habit forming drugs gets into
operation he will guarantee to cure every drug addict in
tle City of New York and there are thousands on thous
ands of them by a painless method and within six
months Surely nothing is more important nothing more
clearly points to the necessity of the government com
manding space in the newspapers to educate the people
especially in the rural districts in matters affecting the
public health The anti prohibitionists have held as their
trump card of opposition to enforcement of the Volstead
act the fact that drug addicts cure and habit forming
drugs under government control prohibition will have a
fair chance to demonstrate its beneficial effect on the hum
an race at least as applied to America Dr Copeland is a
practical man in eveiy sense of the word and there istno
greater advocate than of educational work by the gov
ernment municipal state and nation alike Not more
than a week ago Dr Copeland made the flat assertion that
measles could be absolutely wiped out of America forever
in forty eight hours if all cases were properly isolated
The only reason this disease has not already been killed
forever is that the people do not understand how easy it is
to master It is a fair assertion that if the government
would educate the people in matters medical that tli
death rate in the United States could be lowered atleast
ten per cent This should arrest the attention of our Con
gressmen even from the standpoint of economic saving
if Tint frmn its lmmimitanan antrlc and it may when ai
number of oiir national legislators take a sufficient time
off from rolling the pork barrel to think of the people they
are supposed to serve We will get some action

with the fewest passible turns for
military purposes then this route is
the most feasible and practicable ono
But what will the selection of this
route mean to Safrord Will the
Jurist pass on through without stop
Most decidedly not Any one who has
ever been on an automobile trip
knows that long before you get to a
town you have made up your mind
whether or not you are going to stop
You havo planned your days run to
stop at this town for lunch and to
stop at that town for the night If your
tourist Is in a hurry and does not in
tend to stop what better Indication Oi
the wealth of this community than to
have him see a flour mill with its
warehouses oil tanks ice and cram
cry lumber yards and a wholesale
i
grocery Along that route ho could
and the Odd Fellows homc What If
It Is along tho railroad Ho followed
Ihe railroad before getting Into town
we have Our Industries shch as

Let us make haste slowly A few
WHICH ROUTE THROUGH j months will not make a very great
SAFFORD i difference when It comes to permanent
That Is the question being discussed Improvements
this week and that Is the question Then let us vole for route No one
taxpayers of Safford will he called and Rive the government our approv
upon to decide on Saturday In ob- nl of the route through Safford with
talnlng federal aid the governmont tho least number of turns When it
makes tho condition that it be the Is paved we can petition the city
shortcut route with the leas number council for the paving of Center and
of tnrns Main streets Within a few months
That being the case the answer is the paving can bo done in a systemat
easy The route with the least ic manner and when the property
ber of turns Is called number one owners along thoso streets aro more
It begins nt the old Gila Valley mill able to defray the cost
and continues straight west for seven i But after all the most important
blocks turning north at the Halstead thing to be settled is are we to have
Lumber Company and passes In front a one street town as It would be if
of tho court house until the Thatcher Main street was made the highway or
road is reached then turning west nre we to have a two street town as It
again Dy this route there would bo would be If First South was made the
but two turns the least number of highway or are we to have a throe
any route through Safford If your street town as it would be if Second
government wants a straight road South was made the highway That
is the question Making route No one
the highway simply means that in a
short time all the streets between
Main and the railroad will be paved
while If Main street is made the high
way It will be years before nnotffir
foot oC paving Is laid

0iiuci is a poor muex oi tne wealth or of St Joseph Stake Besides the
any town money derived fromtiio sale of dance
That is not tho most Important fact 1 tickets quite a nice sum was realized
or however Will the paving of from the sale of puuch and ice cream

BIG BUSINESS
AND YOU
Some folk have the hazy Idea that big buslnet
means wealth rolling In through the avenue of BIG
PROFITS
It I not so Big business Is based upon the
sound fundamental of safe and sane Investment If
It Isnt t Isnt long known as big business
Take the safest of all Interest rates 4 per cent
and put it to work on dollars and It will pile up
wealth at an amazing speed
Big business means that more dollars or more
men are at work but whether It be dollars or men
they are governed by a safe and sane buclness
fundamental an honest profit or a reasonable In
terest returned on the Investment
Put -10 to work for you at 4 per cent and In a
very short time It has doubled Itself The more
money you put to work the bigger the returns
and it is soon BIG BUSINESS
And all the while you will
be operating under the
safest of all Interest rates
4 Per Cent
