Value as 1911 Output Six and a Half
Million Dollars
The quantity of gypsum mined
in 1911 was 2,323,970 short
tons, valued at $6,462,035, as
stated by E. F. Burchard, in an
advance chapter on “Gypsum”
from “Mineral Resources for
1911,” publish by the United
States Geological Survey. This
was a slight decrease from the
figures for 1910 —I 05 per cent
in production and 0.94 per cent
in value —but while the industry
was not especially active certain
changes, such as the replace
ment of old mills by a smaller
number of larger modern mills
and the establishment of mixing
plants in commercial centers,
should result, according to Mr.
Burchard, in the saving ol
freight charges on finished plas
ters and enable the products to
be sold to the consumer at low
Gypsum was produced in 17
States and in Alaska from 78
mills. The imports for 1911 were
considerably reduced.

“It is gratifying to the Board
of Directors to think that the
stockholders anrl bondholders of
of the Company have so well
I understood their intentions and
appreciated their efforts in the
stockholders behalf. Under the
terms of the proposed sale which
was submitted to the Arizona
Corporation Commission and
was acceptable to them, tne
Mountain States Company ac
quires all rights, title and inter
est in the business and physical
properties of the Company for
an amount equal to $432,000,
agreeing to pay 15c per share
for stock and 75c on the dollar
for the bonds, first however,

As soon as the two agreed to
this arrangement- the matter
was placed before the Corpora
tion Commission for its consent.
Immediately after having re
ceived same the requisite notices
were sent to the stockholders.
It is evident that the stock
and bond holders of the Over
land Telephone and Telegraph
Company are satisfied with the
action of the Board of Directors
and Officers in selling to the
Mountain States Company on
the terms outlined above, for
the reason that during the last
two days there has been deposit
ed in the Phoenix Bank and
Tiust Company, under the terms
of the agreement, 227 bonds
and 325,000 shares of the capit
al stock* of the company, this
being more than 50 percent of
the outstanding stock and bond.
Stockholders and bondholders
who have not yet taken advan
tage of the terms offered are
urged by the Board of Directors
to deposit their stock and bonds
at as early a date as possible,
that the sale may be consum
Characteristics of some great
men are particularly interesting.
J. Pierpont Morgan, for instance,
seldom comes to Washington,
but when he does his habit for
a quarter of a century has been
to stop at the Arlington Hotel.
At the time it was proposed to
interest Air. Morgan in a pro
position to tear down the old
structure and to erect one of
the most magnificent hotels in
the country on its site, the great
financier took a big block of the
hotel stock upon the stipulation
that the rooms reserved lor him
in the new hotel should be ar
ranged in exact duplicate, and
furnished in the same manner as
the suite which has been at his
disposal in the old Arlington
for many years.
It is said that Senator Penrose
who always stops at the New
Willard, pays S3O a dav for his
rooms, and that the Senator
frequently proclaims that any
one who pays such fancy prices
is privileged to use or abuse the
furniture and surroundings as
he sees lit, and that lie acts ac
cordingly. The Senator is known
to be a very rich man, and as a
bachelor has formed some pecu

to be that he frequently stores

in his trouser pockets, where
they arc kept handy for use.

An Open Letter
The following com munication
was received at this office yester
day morning with a repuest for
publication in answer to our
home trade articles published in
*he column of this paper from
time to time.
The writer is unknown, having
signed no name.
We agree with the writer on
some things mentioned in the
articles and on others we think
it a little off. But by all means
it is well for our merchants to
read the article over and then
read it again. It looks as though
the people are beginning to wake
up the merchant instead of
which the merchant ought at
all times be after the people to
get their trade.
The article follows:
Winslow, Ariz., July 9, 1912:
Editor of Winslow Mail:
Dear Sir:
I have often noticed articles in
your paper about people sending
to caLdog houses fur goods and
as there ate always two sides to
a question 1 wotld like to tell
you why so many of us send
away fora lot of articles that
we might buy here.
In the first place, we are treat,
ed with courtesy by the people
we buy of by mail, and in some
cases save as much as -f 10.00 on
a single purchase including ex
press charges over and above
what we are compelled to pay
the local merchant. After the
articles are purchased and they
are not satisfactory the same
may be returned at the expense
ot the house where they were
purchased. Ottimes I have sent
for articles in stores in this town,
in case of. articles of clothing if
same did not fit correctly and
an exchange was wanted, , the
clerks became real angry just for
that reason.
Recently a lady in this town
was told that her trade was no
longer desireable because she had
been overcharged and asked to
have the matter adjusted. i\e
housewives often buy our gro
ceries to be delivered and many
times find them short something
ordered and paid for. The deliv
ery boy will say “I will go right
back and get it,” but that is the
last we see of him and it is then
up to us to get it ourselves. If
more attention was paid us by
the clerks we would do more
trading in the town.
One more answer. Let a labor
ing mans wife go to a store in
this town to be waited on, and
the wife of a well to do man
comes along, some of the clerks
have been known to leave the
first mentioned customer and
wait on Mrs. Rich, and go back
to the laboring man’s wife all
the time conversing with the
rich one.
So it is that the laboring man’s
wife can’t get the attention that
she ought to get in making her
purchases, she naturally looks
to the catalog houses for many
of her purchases of \arious ar
Another thing. We do not see
any ads in the home paper of
what our merchants have as you
see in other papers, but out
saloons ate well represented.
One more thing Air. Editor.
I would like to ask: “Do you
ever try going to church in Win
slow? If not, try it and give us
your opinion. Some of us have
tried going, also to Sunday
School, and we were not asked
into the class nor even spoken
to, and were even made fun of
during the services. This has
happened not only once but
several times with different
In looking over the Portland
papers regarding Elks Conven
tion news it is common to see
pictures of one or two of our
people in ever issue who are
having the time ot their lives
in that city at the .convention.
There were but a few members
of Winslow Lodge who attened
the convention but it was their
intention that even as few as
they were they were bound to
let the people in that section of
the country know that Winslow
is on the map. Some of the stor
ies told newspaper men have
some truth in them while others
sound rather funny and are sur
prising and laughable to the
folks here at home.
The iollowing article was clip
ped from the Portland Evening
Telegram of Monday regarding
Mr. Service, accompanied by his
J. L, Service Put* on Earmuff* if It’s
Real Cold, However.
J. L. Service, of Winslow Ariz.,
Lodge has never worn a hat in
his life. He hasn’t the slightest
idea what size his head is and
says it makes him nervous to
see others with lids on. He got
the hunch from the Apache Ind
ians, who never used “Kelleys”
of any kind. Service is a passeng'-
er conductor on the Santa Fe
and he has created much com
ment among the herd.
“I’m the only bare-headed Elk
in captivity,” he says. “I have
the finest head ofhair in Arizona,
never have headaches, colds or
other aliments of the noodle.”
Service wears earmuffs when
the mercury tries to smash the
bottom out of the bulb.
Bank Credit
It frequently happens that
persons who maintain no bank
account find themslves suddenly
in need of financial assistance.
The natural place to go for such
assistance is to a bank, but if
they have not maintained a bank
account their finacial worth is
not known to the bank and they
fail to get the accomodation.
This bank takes care of all ligiti
tnate wants of its customers and
is glad to extend to its custom
ers this financial aid. By opening
an account with us you establish
a credit and put your affairs on
a business basis and when in 1
need of funds know where to ob
tain same. Small accounts today
areotten the large ones of tomor
row. Interest paid on time de

News was received this week
from the upper country from
Supervisor Richards regarding
the appointment of a Deputy
Sheriff for Winslow which was
commented on in our last week’s
issue informing us that it would
be but a short time before they
would have a man again filling
that position. For reasons best
known to the Board which it is
best not to make public at this
time the office will be vacant for
a short time. This matter will
probably be taken up by the
Board at the special meeting to
held next Monday the 15th.
