THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH, PAGE THREE PRESCOn FRONTIER DAY CELEBRATION Special to Mohave County Miner By G. M. Sparkes. Stay Cowboy! Let 'er Buck! . Plans for the big Frontier Days cel- ' ebration at Prescott, for which the Mile High City is famous, are now un der way and it goes without saying that the 1919 Frontier Days, which will be held at Prescott July 2-3-4-5, will be the best and biggest of its kind ever staged by the Frontier Days Association. There is not a like cele bratipn in the West which compares with the big contests held at Prescott. Approximately $10,000 in cold cash is hung at the rangemen of the world, and this is, in the true sense of the word, for the contestants come from every nook and corner of the globe to participate in the events. Hundreds and hundreds of tourists will be in the Mile High City to wit pess the contests. Governor Campbell h'as already- accepted an invitation of the Association and will be in Prescott on July 4th. Notables, including writ ers, artists, politicians, moving pic ture stars, scenario writers and every one in general find keen delight n being on the ground to view the fas cinating sports of the range. f The wildest, meanest bunch of broncs that ever trod the range are those owned by the Frontier Days As sociation. Owing to the war", the offi cial 1918 Frontier Days was postponed and as a result these "devils" have been merely taking life easy and wait ing for the 1919 Days to roll along. The names of the broncs are sufficient for the layman: "Red Wing", "Big Sid", "Red Fox", "Johnny Cantrell", "Vinegar Roane", "Pee Wee", "Hal ter", "Black Snip", "Panther", "Pitch Fork", "Eagle", "Unknown", "Hob bles", "Rankey Bill", "Casey Jones", "Kaiser Bill", "Blue Dog", "Tango Anne", "Iowa". The broncs will be brought from pasture about the first of Juno and given every opportunity to become familiar with the Frontier Days arena. The'wjild Sonora steers for the steer-beak-away, roping and bull-dogging are from three to four years old and are known far and wide. They are evenly graded as to weight, length of horns, etc., and will be on the grounds days ahead of the events, bo as to avoid any possibility of foot Eoreness. The bulls are the "wildest of the wild" gathered all the way from the snow-capped peaks of Granite moun tain to the darkest, roughest jungles of Burro creek to the south. They v- are well graded and in excellent con dition. The wild horses for the wild horse races have been snatched from the wild mustang herds of the Mogol lon mountains and have just been out- " '" Jawed. , The entire program of the 1919 Frontier Days is attractive; the print ing end of the job is excellent; the front page bearing the vignette of the cowboy, which has made Prescott fam ous. On the back page is found the following tribute to the men who have been in service and to whom this year's celebration is their official home-coming; "The war is over. Victory is ours. To her gallant sons, who helped make victory possible by their noble service at home and abroad Yavapai County bids welcome to their home-coming, The Prescott Frontisr Days. Yavapai County's war record, both military and civilian has given her a place among the leading coun ties of the nation. The number of her men who have been in service; the amount of money invested in bonds and savings stamps; the money sub scribed to every war activity and the willing workers with needle and thread, made the record and assured the victory. Now is the time to re joice and the place of rejoicing dur ing the Prescott Frontier Days, July 2-3-4-5." Copies of the premium list, contain ing complete program, Prizes, etc., . can be had upon application to the t Secretary, Frontier Days, Prescott, Arizona.

"What do you want with more than sixteen closets? That's enough to hang your clothes in, is it not?" "Yes, dear. But you'll want part of one for your clothes, won't you, Hen?" Yonkers Statesman.

The Taylors Men's Grill Now Open "Good Food Well Served" ARMY TELLS US IT HAD , 18,000 BUDDING POETS We know it by statistics. The American Army in France contained 18,000 poets. There is no guess work about it. It isn't a crude affair of census figures, obtaind by asking n man "Are you a poet?" and leting him say "Yes." Each of those poets prov ed it by showing the goods. "The Stars and Stripes" officially stands for the figures. Here is what it says about the poetical aspects of our war: "Army verse sometimes two or three poems, sometimes 25 has ap peared in every issue of the Army newspaper. And Army verse will con tinue to appear in every issue until the Personnel Officer of Censor and Press Company Number One says, 'Snap it up, boys. Don't keep the boat waiting.' "Army verse is not particularly a 'Stars and Stripes' fad. It is a 'Stars and Stripes' necessity. Anyone would think so if he had had to sort 500 poems a week, or something like 18, 000, to be conservative, since the pa per was established. 'This newspaper, in the first 52 weeks' of its existence, printed 384 poems, not counting the little carols on the Sporting Page or verse in such inside departments as 'The Listening Post' or 'Star Shells.' Possibly 40 of these were writtn by members of the editorial staff. The rest (and the best) were contributed. ' With a very few exceptions, possibly ten or a dozen, every bit of verse printed was the work of a soldier. "The Army Poets' column was in augurated May 3, 1918. It is the most widely read column in the pa per." JAGS WITHOUT BOOZE (New York American) "Drunkenness on food," was des cribed by Dr. A. A. Brill, of the Mt. Sinai Hospital staff the other night. He told members and guests of the New York Academy of Medicine that the "raw beef jag" and "mixed course spree," may be the rule among chronic alcoholic victims after July 1. He presented a concrete example in the case of "Madame X". When she was denied her accustomed alcoholic stimulants, Doctor Brill said the pa tient entered a state almost identical to drunkenness by eating the follow ing: v Four pieces of toast with straw berry jelly. Two crullers. One boiled egg. One roast beef sandwich". One pound of almonds. Three sliced cucumbers. Six bananas. Three nut cakes. One pound of chocolate candy. Although "Madame X" was frail, weighing about ninety pounds, Doctor Brill said she ate the above food with in a half-hour. Doctor Brill cited this case to support his assertion that in gredients other than alcohol cause in toxication as in other liquors now sold. Another case cited by Doctor Brill was described as the "raw beef jag." He said one patient, deprived of al cohol, received an "intoxicating" feel ing after partaking of three pounds of raw beef. Yet- another patient be came "drunk" after taking several teaspoonsfuls of table salt. NC-4 WILL NOT PLY BACK HOME The American naval seaplane NC-4, which arrived at Plymouth, England, Saturday, thereby completing the first transatlantic flight, will not attempt a non-stop or any other kind of flight back to the United States, Secretary Daniels said today. The seaplane will be dismantled and shipped to this country. The secretary said the navy contem plated no attempt at a non-stop trans atlantic flight in the near future as the navy did not desire to make a spectacular showing, was not in any j competition for transatlantic honors ana am not lavor "stunt" flying.

CELEBRATION JULY 3RD AND 4THAT FLAGSTAFF (From Flagstaff Paper) Ai-e you getting ready for the time of your young life on the Fourth of July? You might as well, for it isu coming. The Elks promise us things that sound like "big-time stuff," and e have noticed the promises of the Elks are generally fulfilled. Negotiations are now being carried on by wire with parties in Los An geles toward getting two airplanes and the necessary aviators for exhibi tions here during the celebration. If these fail, there are plenty of other places where airplanes are procurable and the committee incharge has de termined that some of us old moss backs shall have the opportunity of seeing airplanes in action here in the next few weeks. Aside from this feature there are others galore and the nearer the time comes the brighter look the prospects for the greatest time of joy and un confined laughter the town ever had. The committee in charge of amuse ments has decided to build, on the Elks' lot at the corner of Aspen ave nue and Beaver street, the largest dancing floor Flagstaff people have ever had here. It will measure 60 by 90 feet, and will be covered with a canvas roof so that rain will not hurt the floor nor injure the dancers. 'A splendid orchestra will be provided, andfor once the folks can get enough dancing. This feature will open with a grand free ball about the 25th ot June. Not a cheap carnival, but vhe very best carnival company procurable will be here for a week to liven the dull affair. Several are now being con sidered. Tickets, are already being sold for the automobile raffle, the winner to be presented with a brand new model, 8-cylinder Oldsmobile touring car. The tickets are going at a dollar a throw and they are being grabbed up rapidly. The car will be on exhibi tion at Waldhaus in a few days. The Elks are going to offer this year the biggest prizes ever given in northern Arizona for broncho busting. The amounts have not been announced but they will be large enough to draw the crack riders of the state. Another feature, one never put on in similar celebrations here before, will be the steer riding contest. There will also be cow-pony races, a "relay horse race, fancy saddle horse race, pony ex press race and a fast slow race. From 150 to "200 Navajo and Hopi Indians will be on hand and they will indulge in such sports as Indian pony race, relay race, races without and with saddles, etc. Entrants in the auto and motorcycle races must be 21 years of age. This part of the program promises to be exceptionally good. For one thing there will be a 50-mile race on the track, open to all and to any make of car. Then there will be a motorcycle race and a race around the loop through Sunset Pass. Three band are promised, Man! There'll be some music. And the baseball team promises to bring on an opponent worthy of the best we've got, and pull a stirs-enough ball game for the lovers of that sport. We've decided to be here on the Fourth.

A Farmer Writes: If I did not have a Chevrolet car I would never think of operating the farm I have now unless it was next door to the city market, as the old horse and creaky wagon methods would not answer in these days when time means such an item in selling. Whether you want an automobile for family use, for business purposes or for both, the Chevrolet will give you all that is most desirable in mechanical efficiency and motor car beauty, with the assurance of constant safety, comfort and dependability at a very low cost for upkeep.

But fix your eye on their extra wide SAFETY TREAD and see how the Goodrich interlock ing safety bars spread beyond the bag of the tire and protect the lower rim of the side walls. Examine how the tread carries up the tire till 'it is overlapped by the side strips. Goodrich Tires are thus fortified where tires are weakest.
