W. M Risley Has Job
Beaten a City Block
Speaking of "being up against 11." there
Is a man in this town who certainly has
boon In that scir-sanio situation. Tho
man Is W. M. Risley or 72H Hast Fourth
South. Mr. Risley is best known as the
manufacturer of Saratoga chips.
Along about the middle of May his
nine-vcar-old daughter was seized with
scarle't fovcr, Thero was a quarantine
on tho family home for thirty days on
Hint account. No sooner bad the little
girl recovered nnd the embargo lifted,
than Mr. Hlsley himself became the
pained victim of inflammatory neuralgia.
This laid him up a week, and pola'.o chips
were not forthcoming, because Uie potato
chip factory is at tho home and when
tho quarantine lay against the scarlet
fever patient, it lay also against tho chip
When Mr. Risley was .still ill. Mrs. Ris

this discaso also fastened Itself upon

"The Mormons are divided into foui

posing the despotic rule of Brigham
