Arizona Stores Company "IN FOR A BUMP" AND PATRICK SURE GOT IT CHICAGO, June 2. They're all laughing yet about how Patrick Col lins fell down the elevator shaft from the fourth floor of a cold storage warehouse tonight and broke his arm. Pat is night watchman there. He's at a hospital now telling the story to the nurses. "Sure," he says, "the copper John nv Havs asked me what I was think ing about while I was falling; was it me sjns, or me relatives, or what? And says I: 'Twas the ould joka about the Irishman falling off the roof was in me mind while the bottom of the shaft was coming up to me. This ould harp sees he's falling and he says, 'Begorra, I'm in for a hell of a bump.' And believe ma or not, that's what I was thinking of.' " Symptoms of the Season "How's the wife?" "Low-spirited." "What's the trouble?" "Shp needs a change of scenery." "Going to send her away?" "No, I'm arranging to finance some spring togs." Birmingham Age-Herald.

NEW MEXICO MAY TAKE LIEU LANDS A decision of the United States Court of Appeals of the District of Cloumbia, which allows the state of New Mexico to select lieu school lands in forest reserves, will have a consid erable bearing on the same class of lands in the state of Arizona. Arr zona being a mining state, many sec tions of land upon which mineral is found will undoubtedly be school sections and as there are hundreds of thousands of acres of reserves in the state most of the lieu selections wijl bp made in these reserves. 5r X(&&v 5 TRADE MARK Vz--!. -JWtW CV5?

The coal mining camp of the Phelps Dodge Corporation at Dawson, New Mexico, makes an interesting compar ison, because good housing in coal mining camps is unusual. This com pany adopted its standard two years before the government undertook to make any standards, ah oi tne iea tures provided as requirements in gov ernment construction are included in the Dawson housing, and in many cases they have been improved upon. While the government requires 20 feet between buildings, and a back yard of 20 feet, a condition which is regarded as revolutionary, Dawson has SO feet between buildings and a 90 foot back yard. Traditionally, coal mining camps are cases of abominable living and sanitary conditions, and while the camps of Virginia and Pennsylvania are gradually follownig the pace set thenf by the western camps, the pro gressiveness of the West is illustrated by the fact that their housing stan dards of years back -are even better than those set by the government as an objective, and regarded by eastern industry as almost revolutionary. f Florsheim Oxfords For Men St $3.50' All you men who enjoy the comfort of a low-cut Oxford during the hot sum" mer days need not worry about the high cost of shoes for we are showing an exceptional range of styles and sizes. v-ssi2ffiS Gun Metal Patent Leather Tan Values Uato $7.50 Your Choice at $3.50 ' Remember these are not shopworn shoes of the vintage of '76, but new, clean snappy, stock way under priced to make room for incoming goods.
