' a doed. algaWby Ira D. Wines and
f Elizabeth' -Wfnes, his wife, convoy
s' ins to LehiClty Block 81, Plat A,
Lehl City Burvoy. Tho lnatrument was
drawn up and signed on December 19,
1914.
Among tho provisions of tho deed
1C are that it shall bo oncloBcd wltlif.n
fenco of two Iron rails In wooden
l(i " posts set in cemont. It shall bo
known as tho Margaret Wines Park.
Tho Bum of $1,000 shall bo spent on
It in 1915, in leveling it down, platting
UBm " it out and seeding to grass, etc.
Thereafter for a period of eighteen
years, tho City shall spend at leaBt
- (500 por year in kcoplng tho plat in
a park condition. After eighteen
years tho absolute tltlo vests In tho
City, providing all tho requirements
toll . of tho deed havo boon complied with.
In case of falluro in any requirement
mlie- contained in tho deed, then tho tltlo
lulslte rovorts back to tho grantees. The
be an City has already complied with tho
0(1, fenco provision of tho deed, and haB

sldos of tho block.
Thcro is also a provision pcrmltlng
tho City tc build a City Hall on tho
block, provided that tho building If
UTAH erected clUier' on the Northeast or
Southeast corner.
" Mr. Wines also offers to soil to the
m City, at n very low prlco, tho block
I west of block 81. Thcro Is a wide
spread sentiment that the Cityshould
own this tract and construct a base
ball park thereon. Thoso who favor
this purchaso also favor closing the
street between tho two blocks, mak
ing ono big park of about six acres.
It is understood that this, question of

Tho stockholders of tho Moslda

orld of troublo at Moslda during the
rast enr and several of tho farmers
havo glvon up and moved nwny. Two

It appears that to begin with tho
canals wero too small to carry the
water, and when tho farmers began to
cry for water, tho transformer burned
out and thoro wns no water for any
body, till a now ono wns Installed.
Hy this tlmo many of tho crops woro
too far gono to bo saved. Peoplo who

Picture Film.
Mr. David Carson camo In from
Fnlrftold Mondny. Ho roporta that tho
rabbits In tho valley have gathered
Into tho tall rabbit brush south of
Falrflold, where thoy aro so thick that
thoy rcsomblo a big sheep herd. Ho
says that conditions aro Ideal for a
drlvo and that if ono woro mado now
that over 10,000 rabbits could bo sc
surcd without tho uso of a gun.
Tho peoplo of Fairfield would turn
out onmnsso If a drlvo was organized.
In tho recent hunt tho Salt Lakers
shot but a small per cent of thoso
that thoy saw. Many would shoot 100
shells to get ten rabbits. Of course
somo woro bettor shots and got as
many as 100 each. .
Mr. Carson thinks n big rabbit
drlvo would furnish gront sport and
that If ono woro mado a motion plc
turo concorn would como down from

Farmers Meet
Saturday, December 26th
Tho farmors of Lohl will hold a
mooting Saturday night, Decombor 20,
nt S p. m, in tho Lehl Commercial,
club rooms to discuss tho advisability
of forming a locnl branch of tho Na
tional Farmers' Society of Equity. A
boglnnlng was mado last week, but
as Uiero wore but few farmers present
It was docmed best to got nil tho
farmers Interested beforo perfecting
nn organization.
In tho cast thoro aro locals In al
most ovory township whoro fnrraers
nro located. Cacho and Box Elfter
Counties havo locals In nearly every
precinct nnd societies will bo placed
In oyery county In Utah. Tho ono to
bo organized In Lehl will bo a part
of tho Couilty, Stato and National or
ganizations. Tho prlmo object of tho socloty Is
tho principle of co-operation. All of
tho trades and professional mon nro
organized and havo their schedule of
prices and wages. Farmers are tho
only peoplo without an organization
and suffor moro from tho mlddlo man
than any other class. If a car load
of seed potatoes wero wonted from a
clean district, mlddlo men reap tho
profit and tho farmors may ovon then
got diseased potatoes. Farmors In
somo localities buy balled hay, but If
a LchI local sont its order to an Ida
ho local, probably two commission
men's profit would bo eliminated. In
everything that a farmer buya or sells,
If It woro done through tho farniors'
olcnrlng house, thero could bo a won.
dorful saving, as thoro can bo no rea
son why tho farmer should not get
wholesale rates If ho buys In whole
sale quantities.
Every farmer in tho vicinity of Lehl
should turn out Saturday night and at
least listen to an explanation of what
is Intended to bo accomplished. The
placo Is tho Commorlcal club rooms,"
tho tlmo Is December 26, nt 8 p. m.

THE MAN WHO QUITS
The, man who quits has a brain and
hand
As good as tbo next; but he lacks tho
sand
That would mako him stick, with a
courago stout,
To whatever ho tackles, and fight It
out.
Ho starts with a rush and a solumn
vow
That hell soon bo showing the others
how;
Then something new strikes his rov
ing oyo,
And lila task Is loft for the byo and
bye.
It's up to each man what becomes of
him:
Ho must find In himself tho grit and
vim
That brings success, ho can't get tho
skill,
If ho brings to the task n steadfast
will.
o man Is beaten till ho gives In;
Hard luck enn't stand for n chcorful
grin;
Tho mnn who falls needs no hotter ex
cuse Than a quitter's whining "What's
tho uso?"
For tho mnn who quits lets his
chnnccs slip,
lust because he's too Inzy to keep his
grip.
Tho mnn who sticks goes nhond with
n shout,
Whllo tho man who quits Joins tho
"down and out."

THE MAN WHO STICKS I
Tho mnn who sticks hns this lesson I
lenrncd; I
Success doesn't como by chance It's I
earned I
By pounding away; for good hard I
knocks
Will mnko stepping stones of the
Btumbllng blocks.
Ho knows In his heart that ho cannot
fall;
That no ill fortuuo can mnko him
quail
whllo his will Is strong and his cour
age high,
For he's always good for another try
Ho doesn't expect by a single stride
To Jump to tho front; ho Is satisfied '
To do ov'ry day his Uivol best,
And let tho futuro tiiko care of the
rest.
Ho doesn't bollovo ho'e held down b'
tho boss
It's work, nnd not fnvor, that "goti
across."
So his motto Is thla: "What nnothct
mnn
Has been nblo t hnndlo, I Burcl.
can."
For tho man w'jo stlckn has tho sense
to seo
Ho can mnkc. himself whnt ho wont

Why, th man who sticks can't holr
