WINSLOW is The Metropolis of Northern Arizona. o o VOL 26. Village Smithy Called Home. The news reaches Winslow that Mr. John Donahue, one of our pioneer settlers, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mamie Ellison, at San Ber nardino, March 13th, and body was laid to rest in the cemetery at Los Angeles. For thirty years Mr. Donahue conducted a blacksmith shop here and was know far and wide both for his skill as a mechanic and for his loyalty and devotion to his coun try and its flag. He erected a pole in front of his shop, and every legal holiday the American flag was unfurled to the bieezes that the world night know that to John Donahue its stars and stripes stood for liberty, the home, and for God. His failing health several months ago made it necessary that he go to the home of his daughter in Califor nia, where he could receive her loving care, and his only worry was that the flag would not be raised in front of his shop during his absence. He finally wrote to Mayor Bly asking him to at tend to this duty, and when he received the mayor’s reply that the flag was being raised on the stated days his mind was at rest. Mr. Donahue was 74 years of age at the time of his death. Fresh Elsinore pickled olives. Look out. Mary Bickford at the Electric theatre, Sunday. Elsinore honey is delicious on hot cakes.

The Winslow Mail. A Few Accidents. C. D. Ellis, bridge inspector for the Santa Fe with headquar ters in Winslow, was struck by passenger train No. 22 Thursday evening some time after four o’clock, while near Hardy. He was on his speeder coming to Winslow. Mr. Ellis was uncon scious when found, and was im mediately brought here and taken to the Santa Fe Hospital, but up to the present time has been unable to tell about the accident. It is thought the snow storm which raged all during Thursday afternoon blinded him both to hearing or seeing the approaching train. Mr. Ellis has been in Winslow for the past ten years and is highly esteemed among his many friends. Mr. J. F. Clack, day engineer at the ice plant, was unfortunate enough to catch his left hand in some machinery at the plant Monday afternoon while clean ing it, and before he could dis entaugle his hand it was crushed and cut to the bone. A doctor was immediately called, and the injured member dressed, and nothing serious is feared. Master Rand Sprankle, the three-year-old son ot Dr. and Mrs. Sprankle, had a miraculous escape from a serious injury last Monday morning, when an auto mobile driven by Mrs. Chester Smith knocked the lad down and safely passed over his prostrate body. The baby was attempting to cross over Second street at Kinsley, just as Mrs. Smith name up in her machine. The lady saw the child, honked the horn, and set the brakes on the ma chine so reducing the speed that the child was pushed over, and thus prevented any injury. The lady was as badly frightened as the child, and it was a grate ful sigh of relief when she learn ed the child had escaped without even a bruise. Row Has Been Settled. For the first time since Prof. G. E. Cornelius came to Winslow as city superintendent there is friction in the school circles of that enterprising city.

W. Waite. The alleged primary will be held next Tuesday, and the vot ing place will be at the city hall. Everybody ought to turn out and vote, not that the voting will be legal in any respect, but it devel opes the habit of voting and gives you the practice in mark ing a ballot. V. H. Driver, who is the pro prietor of the new Standard Bot tling Co., has finally after many vexing delays succeeded in get ting his machinery all here and having it installed. He started operations Monday morning, and now our thirsty public can drink carbonated beverages of home production. Miss Gladys Fouts, one of Winslow’s young ladies, success fully passed the examination for a teacher’s certificate which was held in Holbrook a few weeks ago.

The annual school meeting will be held at the high school build ing Saturday, at which time one director will be elected. The retiring member is T.

Mrs. V. C. Proctor charming ly entertained the members of the Friday Club at her home last Friday afternoon. The scheme of the afternoon was planned and carried out to appropriately celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The rooms were tastefully decorated in blooming potted plants, ferns and red, white and green carnations. A contest in which a number of questions were answered with words beginning with Pat, was a most enjoyable feature of the after noon program. Mrs. Spelllmire’s efforts were crowned with suc cess and she received a dainty hand-made prize. As usual the needle-work was put aside for the partaking of a dainty lunch eon served around the dining table which was beautiful in its j timely decorations Place-cards and bon-bon boxes were hand painted shamrocks with a smil ing kewpie face peeping out. These were especially appreciat ed by the guests, from the fact j that they were the work of Miss Mae Proctor, daughter of the ; hostess. Appropriation Passed. A telegram received late this afternoon from Senator Ashurst brings the cheerful news that the $15,000 appropriation for the Little Colorado bridge east of Winslow, had passed the senate yesterday afternoon. As soon as the bill receives the signature of the President the governe ment’s portion for the new bridge will be available. The Arizona delegation in Congress have done good work on this item and they can be assured they have the thanks of the peo ple, not only of our city, but those residing in the north part of the county, who want to come to Winslow for their trading point. Work for the Vigilantes. Mr. A. J. Henderson, of the Winslow Telephone Co., is ordi dinarily a fine pleasant gentle man with whom it is a pleasure to associate, but when he discon nects all our telephones for two days while he is installing a new switch- board and connecting the phones to the new cables that have been strung over the city, jit prompts us to suggest that if it happens again very soon we are in favor of the vigilantes call ing on him. Our merchants now probably realize how neces sary the telephone service has become to the successful hand ling of their business, and the improvements just made will add to the efficiency, which will in a measure recompense us hereaf ter for the few days of inconven ience. Sunday School Convention. The county executive commit tee in charge of the program of the county Sunday School con vention to be held in Winslow, April 1-2-3, met Tuesday and completed their work.

In Memorium. At the regular meeting of the 0. R. C. Aztec Div. 85, and Winslow Lodge No. 477, B. R. T., a joint committee was ap pointed to draft suitable resolu tions to the memory of Mr. Linden B. Riggin, a member of both orders, who lost his life in the sad accident last Friday, by the explosion of an engine: Whereas, an All-wise Creator has once more stretched forth His hand to deplete our ranks, and beckoned to the silent shores Beyond our beloved friend and brother. Linden B. Riggin, “as in the twinkling of an eye,” while at his post of duty, we his brother members in the O. R. C. Aztec Div. 85, and Winslow Lodge 477, B. R. T„ who knew him so well in life as a noble character, a true friend, and a loyal defender of our organizations, feel deeply the loss that has come to us at this time, and our hearts are grieved when we realize that we shall see him no more forever in our councils. WhAeas. realizing the great loss that come to us, it is.infintismal as compared to the grief and affliction that has fallen upon his loving and devoted wife and infant child upon whom he always lavished his love and affection in unstited measuie. and to the wife thus bereaved words of ours will in no wise lighten her burden of sorrow, but we can assure her she suffers not alone in her hour of trial. 1 herefore, be it resolved, by the members of the O. R. C. Aztec Div. 85 and Winslow Lodge No. 477, B. R. T. that in token of our loss and in memory of our love and affection for our brother. Linden B. Riggin, it is hereby ordered that our respective charters be draped for a period of thirty days; that these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of our lodges, and be printed in the Winslow Mail; and a copy be sent to the wife of the deceased brother under the seals of our respective lodges. Signed: Geo A.-King, Wm. Dunlap. E. J. Howard/ Committee O. R. C. Aztec Div. 85. R. Whitlock. Joseph Jordan. W. S. Howery. Commiitee Winslow Lodge Nomber 477 B. R. T. The last sad rights to the mem ory of L. B. Riggin were held Sunday morning at the M. E. church, under the joint auspices of the local orders of the O. R. C. and the B. R. T., the services being conducted by Revs. W. B. Cole and Fred S. Carter. At the conclusion of the service the body was escorted to the Santa Fe depot, and shipped to Exeter, Mo., for interment, the old home of Mrs. Riggin. Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Houghton accompanied Mrs. Riggin on her sad mission. The sudden death of Mr. Rig gin has been keenly felt in this community, where he was so well-known and universally pop ular. He loved all mankind, and no harsh words or criticisms ever escaped his lips. If he knew of faults in others he kept his own counsel, and reached out his hon est hand of fellowship to lead such back to a perfect life. It was these qualities that made for his popularity in this com munity. In the home he was the devoted husband, and around the wife, and the little baby that came only a few short months ago, was centered his every hope and ambition. The tie is broken: the wife is robbed of the pro tecting arm which had never failed her, and the prattling babe will have only a memory as its legacy. Card of Thanks. I desire to thank the many kind friends who extended help and sympathy to me in my re cent bereavement caused bv the sudden eeath of my beloved hus band. I especially wish to thank the ministers, W. B. Cole and Fred S. Carter, and the local or ders of the 0. R. C. and the B. R. T. Mrs. L. B. Riggin. From the parents, brothers and sisters of the late Mrs. J. A. Sutherland, the Winslow Mail is in receipt of the following letter with the request that the same be published: “We want to express our many thanks to the friends of Mrs. J. A.
