  1. AULTMAN POST OFFICE CHANGED: The Aultman postoffice, which has heretofore been located on the east side of the Verde river, has been changed to the F. L. France store at the forks of the Camp Verde and Prescott road on this side of the river, with Mrs. Ida M. France as postmaster. This will be decidedly more convenient for the majority of its patrons, and will enable them in a short time to get their mail daily, as it is practically on the route from Prescott to Camp Verde with a daily mail schedule.
