VOL XV. LOCAL NEWS I i % Child Lost. Last Saturday afternoon, Phe be, the five year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Harris, wander ed away trom her parents, who were fishing near the Clear Creek bridge. The little one was not found until seven o’clock Sunday morning, about seven miles from the spot where she left her par ents, and after having traveled many more miles circling around. It was thought at first that the child had been drowned, but the cowboys of the Marley and Hart roundup, believed that she had only walked away. They took up the trail that night and by the light of a lantern tracked her over the hills, to be rewarded next morning by finding the child uninjured and well. The night was a cold one and it is a miracle that the girl did not perish. Card of Thanks. We desire to thank the people (especially thecowboys)to whom we owe a lifelong gratitute and never to be forgotton, for the rescue of our little five year old daughter. We again heartly thank them all and wish them well. Very humbly, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Harris. That the younger element of baseball enthusiasts of Winslow are not to always be known as tailenders was ably demonstra ted last Sunday by the team that traveled to Flagstaff to engage the boys of that town in battle. The score was something like 23 to 11 in favor of the Winslow boys, but spectators say that the score gives but a small conception of the game, it being well played bv the youngsters from Winslow and against odds that would have overawed other than the most brave, the Flagstaff boys team being composed principally of young men about to graduate from the high school. Return games are now expected by teams from Joe City as well as from Flagstaff, so that we will soon get a chance to see the vongsters in action on their own field and with the home bunch to root lor them. Line up lor the kids! Don’t fail to hear Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Bacon, banjo experts, at the Opera House, Monday night. WINSLOW’, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, MAY. 2, 1908. NOTICE OF ELECTION.

Governor Sheldon, of Nebraska accompanied by some three hun, dred offiicials and citizens of that great state, occupying a special train of seven cars, passed thru Winslow Tuesday morning. The Nebraska party, after a visit to the Grand Canyon of the Colora do, will proceed to San Franisco where they will participate in the welcome to the battle-ship fleet during the month of May. The prime object of the excursion, however, is to present an elegant silver service to the battle-ship Nebraska which has recently been completed at the Union Iron Works and which will go into commission in time to join the maneuvers of the combined At lantic and Pacific fleets in the Bay of San Francisco. The silver service is the gift of the people of Nebraska to the ship named in honor of the State. The ladies of the Catholic church have arranged to serve dinner and supper to the public on election day. It is needless to say it will be a tempting and sub stantial repast. Notice of location will be published later. By a new construction of the Federal nine-hour law as regards operators employed by railroads, it is found that at one-man offi ces an operator can be assigned to a twelve hour trick during any portion of the twenty four hour period. Under this arrange ment the Santa Fe has reduced the number of operators employ ed at three or four of their stations on this division during the past week making them one man stations instead of having them open continuously with three operators as has been the case since March 4th last. The offices affected are Wingate, Chambers, and Adamana, each station now having but one ope rator. Freight business on the Santa Fe has suffered considerable fall ing oft during the past two weeks, so much so that two crews have been taken off of the second district and three off the third, with a corresponding decrease of the number of men on the extra list, it being said that no less than twenty extra brakemen have been released during the past few days. It is now expec ted that the mechanical depart meat will reduce the number of regularly assigned engines in the freight service and will probably relieve some of the extra men in that department. 1.
