MAKE IT WORTH WHILE
The man who boosts his home town does not
do it primarily because he gets direct financial
returns from that boosting. There has to be a
lot of self-sacrifice and unselfishness about the
boosting game, in the very nature of it.
However, there is no question that boosting
needs to be made more popular.
If a booster is made the object of levity of slurs
—if he is accused of being merely a publicity
seeker with no actual concern for the welfare
of the city—it means that the community will
gradually lose its boosters. If, on the other hand,
the booster receives the moral and business sup
port of those who believe in boosting, it means
that the town will surely drive ahead.
Boosting should be made less of a thankless
task. If a knocker and a booster are asking for
your business, all other things being equal, do
you give it to the knocker or the booster?
If you give the business to the knocker, you
are boosting the knocking game. If you give it
to the booster you are boosting the boosting
game. That is about all there is to it. The logic
is inescapable.
When this principle soaks in—when the citiz
ens of a community more generally act on this
principle—the community will go ahead faster
than ever.

A LAUGH A DAY KEEPS THE
WRINKLES AWAY
You can’t be hard and grasping, and selfish
and inconsiderate and conceited, and not have
♦it show in your face. You can’t lose your eyes
in anger and bitterness, and not have them tell
on you when you are not at your best behavior.
You cannot tighten your lips in meanness, and
not have more than a hint of the devil within
you. You cannot spend half your time frowning
and not have a* few permanent lines creep in.
A laugh a day keeps the wrinkles away. Only
multiply that by a hundred. Beauty goes deeper
than the skin. You can prove that to yourself
in five minutes in front of the mirror.
Laughter, Love, Friendship and Sympathy, that
is what keeps away the wrinkles and makes one
beautiful, physically as well as personally and
morally.
o
THE DRUNKEN AUTO DRIVER
“Public sentiment favors punishing drunken
drivers severely. One drink of any kind of liquor
may do as much harm as many drinks. When
automobile drivers learn that when they are
. caught on the highway with even the smell of
liquor, on their breaths they run a good risk of
getting put in jail, then very few persons will be
willing to take a drink and drive a car after
wards.
“Drunken automobile drivers must be banished
from the roads. This is the people’s verdict.”
o
That senate committee seems trying to put the
K. 0. instead of the 0. K. in Bok,
o
No doubt about what the heads of some of
those blocs ought to be called.
o
Congress has appropriated SIOO,OOO to prose
cute the oil cases, and the amount must have a
familiar sound to Doheny and Fall.
o
If old brother Coue were a citizen of Winslow
he would be saying, “Every day in every way
things are looking better and better.”
o
The note received by Doheny and Fall was
badly multilated, but the currency received by
Fall from Doheny was not injured in the least.
o
No indications of an oil structure on the White
House grounds having been reported, it may not
be necessary to use extra precautions to prevent
some cabinet member from leasing them to
private interests.
o
Sometimes an opportunity comes in and drags
a man out of bed, but not very often.
o
You can mix business and pleasure if it is a
pleasure to work.
o
Experts says we have left only 200,000 rattle
snakes. But then, there isn’t much demand for
snake bites.

SAFE-CRACKERS PUT OUT
OF BUSINESS AT KINGMAN
That Kingman was slated for a
real safe cracking job is the opinion
of the officers here who last Monday
picked up a car in Kingman laden
with a most complete outfit of tools
and materials used by crooks to
handle big jobs. The car was park
ed in the baseball grounds and inas
much as camping is not allowed on
these grounds the officers noticed the
car and went over to take a look at
it.
The car bore a California license
I and in it was found four high power
ed guns and shotgun, soup (nitro
glycerine), dynamite, drills, masks
and other paraphernalia used by ex
pert crooks.
The car was watched ft r some lime
but the owners probably seeing the
officers when they first approached
the car, failed to show up. Endeav
oring to trace the owners of the car,
the best information available con
vinced the officers that the car had
been driven into town by a negro and
two white men who had disapoeared.
The car was a comparatively new |
Chevrolet and it has since been as
certained was stolen from a Califor
nia town.—Miner.

J. D. BLAND LOSES LTFE IN
ACCIDENT, CAR TURNS OVER
J. D. Bland, one of the oldest res
idents of the Burro Creek section,
was killed by the overturning of his
automobile on a grade between Burro
Creek and Hillside, last Monday. He
was pn his wav to Hillside for sup
plies and it is believed that his little
truck became stalled on a grade and
started back turning over the grade,
pinning him underneath the car, from
which he extricated himself without
help. Boys passing a short time later
found Bland sittine on a rock by the
roadside in an almost unconscious
condition. He tried to tell them how
the accident happened but was un
able to articulate. He was taken at
once to Hillside, where he died a
few minutes after arriving in a
rooming house. John Neal and wife
! arrived in Hillside shortly after
Bland had died and at once arranged
for the transfer of the body to
Prescott for burial. A coroner’s in
quest was held on the body at Hill
side but no further facts regardine
the accident could be elicited.. Death
was due to internal injuries.—Miner.
No matter what it costs, the most
expensive thing is a marriage license. '
