WINSLOW is The Metropolis of Northern Arizona. ° o VOL 26. Freak Sand Storm. » The elements put one over on the “oldest inhabitant” Wednes day afternoon in the way of a sand storm. At this season of the year sand storms are expect ed most any time, and one was seen approaching from the south shortly after the noon hour, but before reaching the city limits the air currents carried the storm over the town, and for two hours the sand ladened air obscured the sun, and cast a lurid light over the town. All the time the storm was raging in the sky, an almost dead calm was prevailing in the city. So strange was the phenomena that considerable un easiness was manifested by some of our citizens. About 4 o’clock the storm was over, Old Sol was as bright as ever, and confidence in the perpetuity of the universe was restored. Sunday School Convention.

The house was appropriately decorated with dozens of red, white and blue hatchets. In the midst of our sewing the hostess modestly announced the fact that she had become an artist and as proof of this assertion produced a large cherry tree which she had drawn, and in the middle of the cherry tree was a tiny picture of the hero of the day. Each mem ber was then blind-folded and allowed to pin cherries on the tree, each trying to place them near Washington. Mrs. Hickey and Mrs. Dadev won the prizes, boxes of chocolate covered cherries. When luncheon was announced the guests were fur ther reminded of the significance of the day by the appropriate manner in which the table was de corated.

The scheme was fur ! ther carried out in the luncheon I where the hostess served hachet shaped sandwiches, salad of red, white and blue jello, pressed chicken, stuffed baked potatoes, individual cherry pies, cake and coffee, and mints of the three patriotic colors.

The sheep that were kept up here on the home ranches are in splendid condition, and the loss will be scarcely an item to be reckoned. NO. 5.
