The Devil in Hell we've told was claimed And a thousand years be there remainded, He neither complained and did he gowwn, But determined to start a hell of his own. Where he could toemeng the souls of men Without being chained in a prison pen. So he asked the Lord if he had on hand Anything left when be made this land. The Lord said "Yes: I have plenty on hand, But I left it down on the Rio Grande; The fact is "old boy" the stuff is so poor I don't think you can use it in hell any more." But the Devil went down to look at the truck And said if he took it as a gift he was stuck, For after examining in carefully and well. He concluded the place was too dry to a hell. So in order to fet it off his hand The Lord promised the Devil to water the land, of He had some water or rather some drags. A regular cathartic and smelled like bad eggs. Hence the trade wasclosed and the ded was given, And the lord went back on his home in heaven; The Devil and to himself "I have all that is needed, To make a good hell" and hence he succeeded. He began to put them all over the trees, And mixed up the sands with millions of fiens. he trered thrannulas alongthe roads; Put thorns on cactus and horns on roads. He lengthened the horns of the steers. And put an addition to the rabitt's ears; He put a little devil in the broncho steed And proceded the tree of the certipede. The rattlemake biter for the scorpion stiogs, The mosgoils delights you with his buzzing wings The sand-burs prevail and to do the ants And those who pit down need half soles on their pants. The Devil then said that rhrouglerc the land He'd arrange to keep up the Devils own brand, And all should be Mavericka unless they bore, Marks or scraiches of bites and thorns by the score. The heat in the summer is one hundred and ten, Too hot for the Devil and too hot for men; The wild boar roams through the black chaparcal; It's a hell of a palce that he has for a hell.

Scenic Arizona (AZ), Linen unused

Description:
With Grand Canyon National Park, the greatest scenic attraction in the world, and with 15 national monuments within its borders, little wonder is it that Arizona is becoming the goal of all travelers. Rainbow Bridge National Monument is in southern Utah, just over the state line. It is reached through Arizona, but is not counted in Arizona's grand total.

Famous Ranches of Arizona
Scenic Arizona (AZ), Linen unused

Description:
You can't see Arizona from a motor car. Real Arizona doesn't lie along traveled roads. There is only one place from which to see this most picturesque of all states, and that is from the back of a horse. But if you can't ride a horse, the next best place to see it is from the plazza of a ranche. The Old West endures. It still exists. It is preserved in our ranches, and in every section of the state-the hospitality of the range is open to you. If you want to enjoy Arizona, Dude, go and be wrangled."" - CLARENCE BUDINGTON KELLAND

Description:
Monument Valley is truly the Land of Enchantment and one of the-oh so few!-spots in our United States still unspoiled by advancing civilization.

Stretching for miles along the Arizona - Utah border it is best reached by road from Cameron, Arizona - 120 miles northeast into the heart of Navajo land!
