WINSLOW - THE METROPOLIS OF NORTHERN ARIZONA W INSLOW, NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA, AUGUST 30, 1913. OSBURN FINDS ALL SERENE AT BENSON All is running smoothly at the ‘ state industrial school, according to Charles R. Osburn, secretary of the board of control, who has just returned from Benson. "Mr. W. M. Whipple, the new | superintendent, is taking hold in an admirable manner,” Osburn said. "When we went down there things were in rather a chaotic j condition, but he has straighten : ed it all out and is having splen did success with the boys. ” j Several boys escaped about the time Mr. Whipple took bold but all except one are now back at | the school. Two returned volun tarily, stating that they had de-j | cided not to violate their promis-i ;es to the superintendent. There iis a faint suspicion that their appetites had something to do with the return, for both immedi ately began to inquire about some thing to eat. Gazette. | MRS. WM. J. WAGONER !

The relation of the local paper and the advertiser should be congenial, as one is more or less dependent upon the other. When the advertiser places advertising in the local paper he expects results. The newspaper when it accepts advertising promises in effect that the paper has a local circulation com mensurate with the rate charged. Advertising should be given in good faith as it is accept ed in good faith. It is purely a business transaction. The newspaper sells ils space, or services, to the advertiser, just as any one sells any other commodity. There are three things for the advertiser to bear in mind. First, he should map out a systematic advertising campaign and be persistent in carrying it out. Second, he should pre pare his advertisements so they are attrative, interesting and convincing. 4 bird, he must back up his advertising cam paign with good service, or he cannot expect to hold his trade and get the best results out of his advertising. The advertiser must realize that all responsibility for the preparation of the advertisements are with himself. If the advertisements have no merit no results should be expected. It is ridiculous to blame the newspaper when neither the advertisements nor conditions warrant results. There is no one interested in seeing advertisements pro fitable than the newspaper, as the advertising in the paper is what makes the publication of the paper possible, aiding in the dissemination of local news, the creation of local interest, and the buildingof the local community all of which is necessary to the success of local business. On the other hand there should be no one stronger in his friendship for the local paper than the local advertiser. The local newspaper is the best friend the local advertiser has. Hence the local paper should not be treated as an en emy. but rather as a friend and semi partner in the task of business getting. Copyright 1912 by Geo. E. Patterson.

Two Irishmen were comparing notes about politics, jobs, hard times and the like, when Pat O’Rourke, a third one, joined in the discussion. "Sure an’ I'm satisfied with things,” said Pat. "I’ve apache of a job.” "Is that so?” said the others. "And what might ye be doin’?” "I'm pullin’ down the Episco pal church,” replied Pat, "and I’m gettin’ paid for it.” ——Everybody’s Magazine. Say "Air Dome.” A Scramble for Feeding Sheep. A feeder trade development of the present season recalls a pro phecy made less than five years ago in The Gazette by Robert Matheson that the time was . not tar distant when supply of thin sheep and lambs would no longer be adequate. The trade has wit nessed the range season open at ( hicago with fat and feeder grades on practically the same basis, but with an acute scarcity of thin stuff. Certain extensive ! cornbelt operators apprehensive of inability to secure their usual quota, and remembering the ex perience ol last season when many teed barns east of Chicago were not filled, have given com missions for buying on the range. Activity by Colorado feeders and threats by Idado and Mon tana to conduct extensive winter finishing operation in the hay feeding sections of the West have merely accentuated this early demand. One Chicago bouse pur chased 45,000 yearlings, and lambs in Wyoming and Montana I last week on a basis of 5 cents lor lambs and 45 cents for year lings weighed up at the nearest loading point 12 hours off feed and water. This price takes both fat and thin ends, but the pur chase}’ has the assurance that lie will not be involved in the melee usually witnessed al the central markets while the big western ! movement is on. lie can sell the I fat end and instead of being! crowded by the killer, who last | year left him with scam picking, is in a position to keep what he pleases, the result being that the killer will not corral so many half- fat lambs. AH I this stuff bought, on the range will go direct to feed lots in lowa., Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. De mand from Wisconsin and Mich igan for yearlings for summer grazing pur-poses has been insati able, thousands of. acres.of uute ri an ted grass being reported. One band of 17,000 Montana yearlings went into one section of Wisconsin last week and three times that number could have been used. Buying feeders'on the range creates a deceptive set of statistics, so far as the avail able winter supply is concerned, as the stuff is not enumerated at central markets and sees the stock yards but once. Just what volume the direct movement of feeding sheep and lambs from range to corn belt will assume cannot be forecasted, but it will be heavy, as eastern feed ers are alarmed over western competition and are taking time! by the forelock. It may result in higher feeding operations in the west next winter than would be the case otherwise. Western ers have announced an intention to keep thin stuff at home; the east has responded by going after it. The development merely dem onstrates that the western lamb crop is no longer adequate to winter finishers’ requirements, especially in a favorable season when the big end goes to market fat.

Beef is advancing- in strength and probably before the winter is out the record price will be 7.50 1 8 cents for prime steer beef. Seven and a quarter is already being offered on winter contracts. Ibe packers feeders are con ttolling most ot the Southern California cattle now on feed, and every advance in price of beef contracted already by pack ers means that much more profit. Although independent feeders are wary of the price of winter i beef, and feed is both high and I scarce, the price for Jan., and keb., beef will probably be the highest in the history of the coast. While beef is being boosted, there is little or no activity in feeders, and the only demand is being taken up by packers feed ers who are selling out of early contracts made in the spring. Thirteen thousand head of cat jße have boon contracted ftom I Northern Arizona for Fall deliv erp and there remain uncontract ed as many additional, as no large sales or contracts have been made recently and the large con tracts were made previous to the California drouth in the early spring. Fuller Bros., bought the Te.jon rattle and 1,000 head of the San ta Rosa cattle. The remaining .‘5,000 or 4,000 of the Santa Rosa big feeders remain unsold. Fuller Bros., have also been selling from Northern Arizona contracts at the same prices as paid. J here will be no demand de veloped from California for cattle to (ill depleted pastures until next | spring. ’! Predictions state that 1014 will ; I show great cattle scarcity in beef ' and feeders all over the country. Although Arizona is spotted sufficient rains have fallen so that the country is not in a serious condition, and both Arizona and New Mexico have fared well while other states have suffered. 1 It has been many years since a 1 serious drouth affected Northern 1 Arizona.
