    • Dr. J.C. Hickerson has just installed a high frequency X-Ray machine in his office in the Owens Building. There was up to the time Dr. Hickerson bought this machine, no such equipment in Independence. The machine is of the very latest make and is portable and affords treatment for many things which otherwise have refused to yield to the ordinary course of medicine. The machine can be used in any house that is wired for electricity.
    • Dr. Fayette A. Jones has been appointed president of the New Mexico School of Mines at Socorro, N.M. Dr. Jones was formerly a resident of Independence and served for several terms as city engineer. He has heretofore served as president of the School of Mines and one of his most interesting feats was the piloting of an expedition to the unknown island of Piburon off the west coast of Mexico, inhabited by Indians, popularly reputed to be man eaters and whose real nature was first discovered by Dr. Jones.
    • The Examiner has bought the rights for the publication of a new serial, “The Man in the Open” by Roger Pocock. It is a remarkable story of a remarkable man, and introduces scenes in the Canadian Northwest with lines reaching to the great music halls of London. It is a story of adventure and love of nature and man in nature. The story will be published from day to day until completed.
