New Mexico, 31,630 in 1925, in crease 1,546 over 1920. o ”• " “ ' PUBLIC OPINION . Editor Winslow Mail: I have been told tbat the cit> council at its meeting last Friday evening passed an ordinance pro hibiting the keeping of stock with in the city limits, the prohibition including horses, even those used for haulage and riding. This ordi nance will work a great hardship on many people, myself included, and I wish publicly to protest. It is a well known fact that a horse corral is not unsanitary. A j clean corral is not offensive. It j is not harmful. On the contrary the ammonia created around a stable is a natural antiseptic and j permeates the immediate neighbor- j hood. All people who have worked j with and handled horses know this. ! Winslow is still a cowboy ren- : devous, and many cowboys ride to town from the ranches and ranges about here. They stay overnight; at certain homes and hotels, quar- . tering their riding animals in bai ns i about town. What will they do j with their mounts hereafter? There are, too, a number of town j people and visitors here who like j to ride for sport and exercise, j These people will be deprived of j a healthful hobby, for they can not keep riding horses in town, nor, rent, as no one will be able to keep horses on the outskirts of the city, where they will be unguarded. There are months at a time in Winslow, when the snow and mud make the city streets impassible soy trucks and autos, that hauling and drayage must be done by horse power, but where can the horses be kept? I. for one, can not establish a corral outside of town, and then hire a man to stay in the barn 24 hours a day to guard and care for the animals, and that would be necessary. I could, and so could the other, transfer men, keep horses under those expensive conditions if the prices of wood, coiTi and haul- i ing were raised to meet the ex- ] pense, but it is hardly probable l that consumers will stand for any more increases in the cost of living. Again expressing my dissatisfac- j lion with the new law, I beg to re main, Very respectfully yours, CHAS. DAZE. O ' | - Overland Sedan Pulls Large Movie Trailer In i Unusual Power Test A novel power test was recently staged in Toledo which effectively demonstrated the pulling power of the engine in the Overland stand- 1 ard sedan, which was recently re- I dared in price from $655 to $595. 1 complete moving picture unit, j I 1 aging to a well-known film ; company from Hollywood, stopped ; in Toledo to take photographs of j the Willys-Overland factory. A special built truck towed a heavy trailer weighing seven and one-half tons in its trip across the contin- j ent. An Overland standard sedan, just i off the assembly line, was attached j to the trailer by a heavy chain. | Four men occupied the sedan, while j two attaches of the film unit re- j mained in the truck to operate the heavy emergency brakes. The chain ! tautened, and slowly the 17,000-lb. trailer started down the street. I towing it several hundred yards in h’gh gear. After the test was over, j an official of the film company de- I clared: “I would have wagered' SIOO to nothing that tl at car would ; not have budged that big load.” i The test was the more remark able because o* its taking place on j a hot day with the four huge wheels of the trailer sinking deep j into the soft asphalt street. It was out of these ruts that the Standard sedan pulled the huge van while I hundreds of spectators looked on in amazement.

All Men of Unusual Strength Are Samsons The story of Samson is found In Judges 13, and the three following | chapters. This man takes his place in Scripture as a judge or ruler, an | office which he filled for 20 years; i as a Nazarite, that is, one bound by | a vow of a peculiar kind to be set | apart from others for the service of the Almighty. The obligation | was really for a definite time, and j during that time the Nazarite was bound to abstain from wine and ev ery production of the vine, and from every kind of intoxicating ! drink. He was forbidden to cut the : hair of his head, or to approach any dead bodyr In the third place Sam | son appears as a man endowed with supernatural physical strength. It lis this latter quality that first j comes to one’s mind when he Is 1 mentioned, and it is because of ; that wonderful quality than any i man of unusual strength is called a Samson. For instance, a London carpenter, named Thomas Topham, has been called “the F>ritish Sam son." It Is related that in Cold Rath fields, London, on May 28, 1741, in the presence of thousands of spectators Topham lifted three hogsheads of water, weighing 1,836 pounds. Topham was born in 1710, and died in 1753. It was related that he was driven to suicide by domestic troubles. o Scotch Terriers The first pair of Scotch terriers ever exhibited at a bench show in this country were shown to the pub lic in 1883, at which time there was j a decided dislike for the dogs, and | the show was criticized for admit ting the pair, but after Doctor Ewing of St. Louis and other men began developing the dogs and were • able to show their finer qualities, public sentiment developed in their favor and Scotty is a welcome dog at all the bench shows and has won bis way to national popularity. “ —————— *1 i I First National Bank | Member Federal Reserve System I i I U.
