Jose on Farewell Tour of Ameri ca here on March. Bth. Richard Jose, who will be heard in Winslow on March Bth in all of his internationally famous ballads, was born in Cornwall, England, a little more than forty-three years ago, and at the age of eight was known as the phenomenal boy soprano. Before he was three years of age he could sing “Will You Meet Me at the Fountain,” and to this day it is one of his favorite selections. Musical talent was made sub servient to the trade of black smithing, but young Jose continu edjto sing—for sing he would, has and will —and in time his fame as a sweet singer spread from Virginia City throughout the country and he was known as the “Singing Blacksmith.” i He was induced to join the San Francisco minstrels at San Francisco, where he made a sensation which was soon herald ed to New York. At that time Lew Dockstader was forming his minstrel company and Mr. Jose was engaged as the premier bal lad singer. While singing there, the late and dearly beloved Denman Thompson heard him sing. He was so impressed with Jose’s sweet voice that he start ed negotiations to secure his services for “The Old Home stead,” and Mr. Jose opened in this time-honored play at the Academy of Music in New York, where it ran a straight year and came back time after time. A strong affiliation sprang up be tween Mr. Thompson and Mr. Jose, which continued up to Mr. Thompson’s demise. Mr. Jose appears in Winslow for the last time, as this is his farewell tour of America, and while his voice will be heard by generations to come, it will be via the phonograph and talking devices after the first day of June of this year.

Owing to the growing popular ity of various kinds of savings clubs and the success they have proven elsewhere, the Navajo- Apache Bank and Trust Co. has instituted a systematic saving plan to which it invites attention. In order to encourage partici pants in this plan the bank will give the first dollar to deposit, after which the customer will de posit one dollar per week for for ty-nine consecutive weeks, which payments will be registered in a neat book made for the purpose, and at the expiration of the term the book becomes an interest bearing SSO Gold Bond, or the depositor may draw SSO in gold. The same plan has been work ed out successfully in other places under various names, such as Christmas saving clubs, vaca -1 tion savings accounts, and last year many people participated in just such schemes to save for their trip to the P. P. I. exposi tion. But whatever name is giv en to the scheme the result is the same. It creates the saving habit. The bank starts the ac count with a gift dollar, then the depositor places another dollar to the credit of his certificate and in forty-nine weeks it is done. You have SSO, either to draw in terest for you at the rate of 5 per cent per annum, for your trip, for Christmas gifts, or any other purpose for which you may care to use it. It is not hard to save a dollar ior two each week, and SSO or ' SIOO saved out of one’s loose j change or pin money each year is a very handsome amount. You are invited to investigate this plan, and the Navajo-Apa che Bank and Trust Co. has SIOO to give away in starting these accounts.
