You hnc probable noticed how
much wo hno grown since ion moved
away, several years ago. A few of
the old sun dried adobe homes are
Bllll remaining, but most ot these old
innd marks have been supplanted with
brick one or modern doslgus, for you
will have noticed that probably no
other olty In your travels has a larger
percentage of modern, comfortabh
homos, and on the Inside you will find
them comfortably and In many luatan
i oh, luxulnusly furnished
When some of ou left, the side
walks were little moie than cow
trails. You have probably remarkee
on tho lino cement pavements you hav
been walking on In going to and fro
Well, we have thirteen miles of them

Is the Big Red Chlpman Store, tho big
gest department store soutli or Salt
i.aku City. Next and across tho street
in tho new lire brick building Is tho
Bnnk or American Fork with Its near
ly half a million of resources and tho
strength of Olboralter. Up stairs you
will und most of tho legal talent of
Iho clly. Next Is "Joo'n Place," Joe
Is secretary of the big Homo Coming
committee Tho long row or buildings
housing threo or our four drug stores,
a meat market, real estate olllco nnd
several couiccllonnrlcs Is principally
owned by tho Chlpman Co. Th Adam

Main is occupied by tho Soulhworth
Cash Store. Opposite Is tho new Peo

ever and one or the leading Institu
tions ot the state. At tho end or tho
street Ib our home, where Is printed
three or tho best country weekly pa

and a little cast Is the old reliable
store or Win Grant, where you traded
years ugo, Directly ut your back Is
tho modem Mountain States Telephone
U. Telegraph Co's, exchaiigo where you
can call up any or your fi lends, and
at your elbow is Hickman's Real Ins

ably noticed (hut American Fork Is
one or tho best lighted cities In thc
state, Wo have two magiilflolout
power plants In tho eau)on, ono at
tho mouth and the other two miles
furlhiir up. Combined, thoy generate
over S!,000 horsepower of electrlclal
current What n contrast to tho days
of Itcroslne lamps when you left!
Stepping to tho next street oast ou
