25-Year Service Pin Is
Given W. C. Callaway
Included in the July issue of the
Monitor, a monthly magazine pub
lished by the Mountain States Tele
phone and Telegraph company, is
an article telling that W. C. Calla
way, manager of the company's
local branch, received a twenty
five-year service pin last month.
The article is accompanied by a
picture of Mr. Callaway and gives
a record of his years of service.
The article follows:
“W. C. Callaway, our present
agent at Winslow, Ariz., was pre
sented with a twenty-five-year
service pin on June 3. 1925. There
are might few old telephone em
ployes who do not know Bill Calla
way, and to know him is to like j
‘ Bill’s first introduction to the
telephone family was on May 1,
1900, at Colorado Springs, where i
he started to work under the su-1
pervision of the late W. F. Mcln
tyre, and he has had a continuous j
unbroken service record ever since.
“In 1909 Mr. Callaway was trans
ferred to the Denver cable depart
ment. under our old friend, Jimmy
Gamewell, and later transferred'to
El Paso construction department.
"In 1918 Mr. Callaway was sent
to Douglas, Ariz., as wire chief,
which position he held for eighteen
months, leaving Douglas to take
up the duties of manager at Bis
bee, and later transferred to Wins
low as agent.
“This in short is the telephone
history of Bill Callaway, but those
of us who have had the pleasure
of knowing and working with him.
and there are many, know that
the pleasure was all theirs, as to
meet Bill is to like him and to
know him is to love him.
“AH wish Bill many good re
turns and trust that there may be
continued association with him and
that he may be congratulated five
years from now. when he receives
his thirty-year pin.”
July 13, 1925.

The receipts of 35.000 cattle and
7,000 calves were the largest of the
season and one of the largest on
record for this early in July. The
runs have been increased by a
continuation of dry hot weather in
much of Kansas, Oklahoma and
Texas, and grass has begun to j
deteriorate rapidly. General rains :
would check the movement. Prices
•except for grain feds were lower.
Hog prices were down 10c from
Saturday and 60c to 65c under the (
. high point last week. Sheep prices j
show small change.
Today’s receipts: Cattle, 35,000;
hogs, 6,500, and sheep, 11,000. com- !
pared with 24,000 cattle. 4.000 hogs
and 6,000 sheep a week ago and
20.775 cattle, 11,925 hogs and 5,025
sheep a year ago.
Beef ( sittie.
The liberal receipts today
brought 15c to 25c lower prices for
practically all classes of cattle ex
cept those that showed a material
amount of dry feed, and they were
in moderate supply at steady
prices. However, the runs in
creased the volume of demand and
trade ruled active. There is no
congestion in the market and the
.offerings, though lower, are finding
•a ready outlet. The bulk of the
heavy run came from Kansas and
Oklahoma. Though some had been
forced in because of dry, hot weath
er, uone showed drouth conditions.

Offerings of Stockers and feeders
were liberal. Prices ruled 15c to

On July 17 a horned toad of the j
Indian Zoo at Canyon Lodge gave
bith to forty-one little ones. This,j
according to Indian Miller, propri
etor of the zoo, breaks all records.
In August. 1923, a mother horned
toad of the zoo brought forth twen
ty-eight young, and this was con
sidered remarkable, but Mr. Miller
says that small matter will never
be mentioned again.
The mother of forty-one was a
Hernandez horned toad, the kind I
that is found through this region, j

j Mr. Miller was the discoverer, a
j few years ago, of the fact that this
! species is viviparous, and gives
birth to its young. It had always
been supposed that all horned
toads were hatched from eggs.
It seems to he a wise provision
of nature that the horned toad
should mother many, for almost
everything destroys them, Mr. Mil
ler says. Even small birds swal
, law small horned toads,. and ex
tinction threatens the species at all
I times.
Travel Still Breaking
Records at Canyon
Record-breaking travel to the
I Grand Canyon national park con
tinued during the month of June,
! it was announced by the national
park service of the interior depart
j A total of ; 23.05 S persons were
registered at the park during the
| mohth, exceeding the best previous
record of June last year by 37 per
cent. Os this number 12,633 came j
in 3.781 automobiles; 10,373 by
rail and 52 by other means of
travel. The increase in motor
travel amounted to 60 per cent
over last years’ figures, and for
the second consecutive month trav
el by private means exceeded vis
itors by rail. Os the total month’s
travel, 339 cars and 1,633 persons
were registered on the north rim.
This is an increase of 97 per cent
over last year’s travel and shows
that travelers are beginning to dis
cover this wonderful region which
combines the Grand Canyon with
the Kaibab forest and its large (
j deer herds.
All approach roads and high
ways within the park are in excel
lent condition. Recent rains have
settled the dust, but have not held
up traffic to any extent.

Haakon Bader, who left his na
j tive town in Norway in 1888, re
cently received at Tacoma. Wash.,
a letter mailed from his native city
I shortly after he left it. During its
' wanderings the missive had been
i handled by the postal services of
j five different nations, for in rhat
i time Norway gained her independ
; ence from Denmark, under whose
! flag Bader was born.
The letter, written by Bader’s
j father, long since dead, expressed
! his love and good wishes for his
! sailor son and contained photo
j graphs of Bader's parents.
When Bader, a lad of 18, went
: to sea from his native village of
j Kragero, Norway, the letter fol
! lowed him to Cardiff, Wales, but
'j arrived shortly after he had set
| sail for Buenos Aires. He had also
j left Buenos Aires when it reached
that city, and it was turned over
to the Danish consul there.
! There it lay in the consular files,
1 while Bader pursued his seafaring
life over most of the world, includ
i ing a visit to his home village.
| Later he joined the gold rush to
| Alaska, and then came to the
I States and settled at Tacoma,
, where he opened a cig&r store.
Some two months ago some one
discovered the ancient letter in the
| consular files at Buenos Aires,
| and it was returned to its place of
origin. There friends gave postal
1 authorities Bader’s last known ad
i dress in Tacoma and it was sent
i there and forwarded again to his |
present place of residence.
The letter, written in his father’s
hand and still plainly legible, was .
1 like a message from another world.

Free Water Hereafter
j At the Grand Canyon
Developments of interest to mo- |
tor campers throughout the entire,
country are now under way in
Grand Canyon national park, it
has been announced. *
j As soon as the necessary pipe
: lines can be laid, water will lie
furnished free of charge to camp
! ers at the headquarters public auto
j camp. Water used at the canyon
| is hauled 125 miles by rail in tank
! cars, and due to the great expense
iit has been necessary to make a
charge of 25c per day to campers
using the supply. However, funds
will be available during the cur
| rent fiscal year to eliminate this
charge, and water will be fur
nished free by the government.
Work is now uifder way on the j
new camp ground at park head- J
quarters which will be opened next
| spring. The plan of the grounds
| has been worked out by park serv
ice employe# with many years’ ex
perience in caring for the wants of
, national park campers, and will
' mark a long step forward in solv
] ing many of the problems connect
|ed with camp grounds. The crowd
ing encountered in so many camps
i will be relieved by the plan of de
velopment. Grounds will be di
vided into blocks 400x100 feet, and
i each block will contain twenty
| camp sites, each 40x50 feet. Each
lot will be equipped with a cooking
pit. a table and bench and other
comforts that may be found prac
ticable. Modern comfort stations
with flush toilets will he built, and
water and wood will be available
at convenient places. The ground
is level and covered with timber
; and will no doubt, prove an ideal
! camp from, all points of view,
