WINSLOW is The Metropolis of Northern Arizona. VOL 23 A Disgraceful Affair. One of the most disgraceful, and at the same time unfortunate affairs that has occurred in this city for some time was the work of a charivari party at the Santa Fe depot last Monday evening, on the departure of Mr. and Mrs. Dooner, who had been married earlier in the day. Anticipating pranks from their numerous young friends they did not appear at the depot until the train had arrived, when they drove up in an automobile on the north side. Mrs. Dooner was put on the train, but before Mr. Dooner could get inside several young men, with more enthusiasm than judgment, grabbed him by the legs to pull him off the car. So roughly did they handle him that they broke his hold on the coach, when he fell striking his head on the steps, knocking him insensible and bruising his face. He was removed from the train, taken to the Harvey House, and two doctors summoned, who worked over him a couple of hours before he recovered con sciousness. The excitement proved too much for Mrs. Dooner, who fainted and was also re moved to the Harvey House, and placed under a physician’s care. The unfortunate feature of the whole affair is that the young men who were responsible for the accident are the friends and associates of Mr. and Mrs. Doo ner, and had no thought of such a serious turn to their enthusi asm. The matter has been brought to the attention of the railroad authorities* and an order has been issued that no more charivari parties will be permitted on the right of way of the Santa Fe road, and any attempt of the kind will mean the arrest and prosecution of the parties participating. The Win slow Mail is glad to record the fact, as one of the most senseless and idiotic practices of this present day is harassing young married people to furnish a little amusement to their friends. Mr. Dooner was so far recov ered Tuesday morning that he and his wife could resume their journey. Mr. H. M. Cheverton, bank examiner is spending this week in Flagstaff on businnss.

They also have corn in tassle, and the pumpkins were too big to bring in. Os course farming is not as easy here as in the middle west, but if the proper labor and attention is given to the cultivation of the coarser crops good results are attained. The Winslow Mail.

WINSLOW, NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA, AUGUST 20, 1915 Murderer Captured. The murderer of Curt Crone yer, a wealthy, excentric store keeper at Allentown, has been captured by Sheriff Roberts, of Gallup. His name is Victor Wuiser, and he was taken in custody at El Paso, Texas, brought back to Apache county Tuesday evening, and made a confession of his guilt to the authorities. It is said his arrest was brought about by his wife, whom he had deserted sometime previously, and v,ho furnished the officers with the evidence of his guilt. The crime was comitted several weeks ago, early in the evening shortly after the store had been closed. It is supposed the mur derer was concealed in the store before closing time, with robbery as his motive, but was discov ered by the clerk Mr. McDonald. The clerk was instantly killed, but mute evidence showed that a pistol battle was fought by Mr Cronemeyer and the desperado, until the foimer was fatally wounded, when the murderer escaped in the darkness.
