There is probably one statement we hear around the
Crazy Water Hotel more than any other. We hear it
just as our smiling guests are shaking hands with *
and saying goodbye. It usually ends up with. ee ten
years younger!” What do they mean? Well, they might
be thinking about the climate. Here m Texas, sunshine is
no novelty - - but hove you ever tried our sunshine here?
We don't have a copyright on fresh air - - but have you
ever stretched your lungs over our mountain air *unn“e
on a nippy wiater morning? And there are plenty of ways
to enjoy this climate. Were still playing golf in our shirt-
sleeves. And the bass have been taking flies. And m«
first few days of the duck season, at daybreak every rnora-
iag h sounded like war. --------- ------------------------
All these things are right at the city’s doorstep.
ft may be our guests, alter all, however, are thinking of
the wonderful relaxation, stimulation, youth-i-fication in a
course cf Crazy Mineral Baths. In giving their bodies a
good overhauling, you might say, inside and out, wth
Crazy Miaeral W ater..^ - Nature s perfect element.
Come to the Home of Crazy ater. Throw off about
ten years of unnecessary age. Go home wuh an appetite
hk'e a timber wolf. And what will this cost you m dollars
and cents- Listen:
Kates by the week (our “Treatment f Ian )
includes a comfortable outside room. Crazy

you can drink, your meals (and GOOD
cooking) - - in fact, alhthe comforts of a

$20 per wee!, single, $35 double.

come, write us for more. Better still, just come and see

Old Bill Williams, Ex-Preacher
and Lone Trapper
A TOWN In Arizona bears his name
Ckand thousands of tourists know It
as the place where they leave the main
line of the railroad for the branch line
which goes up to the Grand Canyon.
Near by Is Bill Williams mountain,
a O,0*K) foot'peak. It also perpetuates
the fame of one of the most picturesque
figures in Old West history.
“Old Bill” Williams was an eccen-
tric character who is said to have been
a circuit-riding preacher “back in the
states” before he took to the plains
and mountains of the West as a lone
trapper. This is the pen picture of
him that one historian has left us: “A
tan. stooped man of Missouri fevtr-
and-ague type; his. thin. leathery face;
his nut-cracker Jaws; his punch chin
and nose;’ his small. urp. twinkling
eyes; his querulous v dee: slovenly
habits; elk-hide suit, blai k with camp-
fire smoke nnd slick with grease; his
piebald, humpnosed Indian pony; tvere
familiar to trappers, traders and In-
dians from the Three Forks to the
Gila and from the states to Califor-
Not an impressive figure, to be sure^
but there wasn't a frontiersman of hie
period moreeunningIn outwitting and
eluding hostile Indians or more redoubt-
able in fighting them when cornered,
nor a scout and guide more-familiar
with remote parts of the Rocky moun-
tain region titan he. For the latter
reason it seems all (he more unbeliev-
able that he should-have made such
a failure as guide for Fremont’s expe-
dition around the head of the San Lot*
valley of Colorado in 1543, a failure
which almost resulted fs tally for OS

he was old. Infirm and half-blind from
his many hardships of nearly 40 year!

mountains. After the rescue, of the

disgrace of bis failure, fled once nort
to the solitudes of the mountains.
And soon afterwards the Indians
