Workmen engaged In excavation
upon tho Union Pacific extension un
covered skulls and bones of some
thing liko a dozen persons at a point
a milo or so west of station No. 2
known as tho Balloy farm In tho
upper edge of Mitchell valloy. Dr F.
B Young who makes regular trips
ovor tho extension, handllny the
medical work for tho railroad camps,
brought ono of tho skulls into tho
Courlor oftlco Wodnosday. It Is his
opinion that tho skull was that of an
Indian and that tho bones unearthed
represent a portion of what is loft
of an Indian burying ground. Most
of tho bonoa woro unceremoniously
dumped asldo with tho rest of tho
excavated matorlal and will continuo
to rest In tho bosom of Mother JEarth
and form a part of tho railroad grado
ovor which countloss millions will
In tho futuro pass along tho now
trjmscontlncn'tal Touto. There ar
several points In tho western part
of tho country whoro burial places
aro known to exist, ono bolng in tho
lower part of Mitchell valloy and
another in tjio vicinity of Horse
Creek but In cuch caso theso aro id
entified in history ono as a mili
tary cometery from which a number
of bodios havo boon removed within
tho liast fow years, and the other
whore tho victims of an Indian mas
sacre woro Intorcd.Tho present dis
covory Is not a matter of knowledgo
so far as can bo learned, and tho
theory of an Indian burial ground js
probably correct Coring Courlor.

You wouldn't expect to light a green stick with a match.
- Yet some gasolines are like green sticks. They neither
ignite quickly nor burn up completely because they lack
sufficient low boiling-point fractions for kindling, and have
too great a proportion of slow-burning elements.
Straight distilled gasoline How to get better result at lvs

Red Crown Gasoline is straight
distilled gasoline. It meets all
specifications required by the
United States Navy for motor
gasoline. It has a complete
chain of boiling-point fractions

The way to get mileage and
power economically, to escape
carbon troubles, to have a spry,
quick-starting engine, is by per
fect adjustment of the motor to
the fuel used. This can only be
secured by using gasoline that

f MONEY THROWN ON THE WAXES
RETURNS TO YOU IN A FEW DAYS'
PART, however small, of evcrv dol
lar you spend in your own town
comes back to you. The more money
that is spent in this town, the more
there is to be spent WITH YOU,
no matter whether your business is
farming, dry; goodsing, restaurant
ing, plumbcring or laboring.
This is true of every town and"
city in the land. But the town that
can coax money from the people of
other towns, soon becomes so pros
perous that people flock to it, and
that's how wealthy cities are made.
It is the duty of every man andi
woman in this community to spend
every cent ho intends to spend right'
here. .It is his duty tot himself, so
that his own property, his own busi
ness, his own job will be worth
more worth more in the selling market.
Homes and farms and blocks and businesses and jobs are
least valuable and poorest In communities whose people spend
.their money elsewhere. "
