That a committee of three
V. C. Baird E. A. Upfold and
K. W. O'Keefe be appointed to
inspect the school building and
report on the same ac to the
cocdition in which the building
had been kept the past session.
Said committee after inspec-
tion of each room and the halls
reported same to have been kept
in a careful manner neat clean
and free from abuse or mutila
From the above action of the
school board it will be observed
that we are to have in tne com-
ing session eleven grades and a
nine mouths term.
This will place Canyon City
so far as schools are concerned
on a par with any town of the
Texas Panhandle. It gives us
school facilities as good as the
very best and when we look at
the settings the fine drainage
of the town which gives us free-
dom from sickness; the ad-
vanced culture and high moral
character of our citizenship we
may well ask wherein the Pan-
handle or even in Texas can
you go to beat it.
Some of the first cutting of
alfalfa is being hauled into
town. The cutting now is gen-
eral on both creeks and the out-
put is of fine quality and the
yield will be bountiful. It is
estimated that there is some six
thousand acres of this sub-irrigated
alfalfa land in Randall
County and there is no better
tin; than now to purchase some
Last week The News received a
letter from John Wiggins telling of
his travels from here to Midland.
He speaks of the good country be-
tween here and Lubbock our be-
loved Plains and then relates his
experience and troubles through
the sand from there to Midland. It
is an interesting letter but comes at
a time that we can't well spare the
space to publish it.
I treat all diseases of eye
ear nose and throat also have
glasses and pay special atten-
tion to fitting them. 21 years
experience in practice 14 years

At the Ice Cream supper in the

the Ladies' Aid Society of the Bap-
tist Church the receipts were
826.60. The society through its

G. Clark Smith was seen to
leave his popular hostelery Wed-
nesday afternoon attired in rubber
boots and other paraphernalia pecu-
liar to fishermen and armed with
rod and reel. His course lay di
rectly toward the creek and the
casual observer would have con-
cluded naturally that he had been
stirred by recent reports to revive
his latent talent for forcibly inJuc-
ing the too ventursome youths of
the piscatorial family from their
native domicile. There is a differ-
ence of opinion as to the exact time
of 'Grandpa"-Clark's return some
contending that it was after dark.
However he proudly displayed 21
fine specimens of Paladuro black
bass The friends of "Grandpa"
deplore the fact that some miscreant
has insinuatingly observed that
there was received in town that
same afternoon a shipment of fish
from the Culf.
Mrs. E. H. Smith will leave for
Texico Monday to be with her son
Heberd at that place for the sum-
mer. Olin Harrison of Seymour Tex-
as arrived in our city to be with
the First Nat'l. Bank.
Official Route of Epworth
Leaguers to Denver.
Official announcement is made
by the Mate Chairman of Trans-
portation that for the 7th Inter-
national Epworth League Con-
ference to be held at Denver
July 5th to 9th the Fort Worth
& Denver City Railway ("The
Denver Road") has been select-
ed as the 'Official Route' from
Texas and that in connection
with that line arrangements
have been perfected for Special
Service leaving Fort Worth at
9:55 A.M. July 4th the schedule
being such as to put Delegates
and friends in Denver early the
In addition to the always up-to-date
regular service available
via that route which includes
Palace Sleepers and Cafe Cars
the special arrangements also
provide for operation of first
class Pullman Tourist Sleepers
through in which entirely satis-
factory sleeping accommoda-
tions will be available at but
one-half the usual expense. In
other words upon a basis of
two persons to a double berth
individual expenses for through
Sleeping Car Accommodations
need not exceed l.l!5 from Fort
Worth to Denver.
As the passage rate will be
but one fare plus 2.00 for the
round trip and tickets will be
good for stop-overs also good
for 00 days for return and at an
unusually low rate side trips
will be available from Denver
to the numerous adjicent re-
sorts and points of attraction in
and along the mountains it is
anticipated that Texas Leaguers
will as they most undoubtedly
should be on hand in large
As a strong effort is to be
made toward securing the next
International Conference for
Texas many Pastors and other
Church workers will head dele-
gations from their respective
charges and commun'ties in the
interest of accomplishing the
end referred to; hence it is a
foregone conclusion that 'Grand
Old Texas' will be strongly and
enthusiastically represented and
that among the many thousands
who will be present from every
section of the country Texas
and its claims will be made
manifest and become justified
through its delegations.
Mrs. R. W. Morgan Misses Edna
Rebecca Morgan and Grace Pratt
of Amarillo spent Sunday in the
city the guests of Mrs. Henson.
Mrs. Morgan came down to rejoice
with the Christian Scientists over
the alleged "almost instantaneous
healing of a foot badly broken by a
fall last Monday." Mrs. Morgan
says that "Dr. Johnson of Ama-
rillo can if he will tell you the
condition when S. C. took it up."
All persons indebted to the
late Canyon City Hardware &
