H A Nebraskan's Opinion of the
H Schools in Bear River Valley
M Margaret Hughes.
H Dear Kditor: Will you let a Ne-
H braskan In your midst give in her
H "poor" way a little "boost."
P School conditions in Hear River val-
M ley, compared with other localities
B that I have had the privilege of know
Um ing about, are most, favorable. I have
JPH never been In a community where I
have found school conditions In every
fV phase better than In Hear Itivcr ;il
k b In comparison with North l;i
H kota. although both are comparatively
H new states, I 'tali has a far more pro
H gresslvo system of education. The
H idea of consolidation is to me one of
H the greatest reasons for this prog
ress. It makes It possible for the
poorer class of people to have the
same advantages as those that are
ii nie fortunate financially.
In the construction of her si bools.
I find these far more modern in this
county. The little one roomed school
still exists, throughout the country In
North and South Dakota. Nebraska,
Kansas and other states, a distance
ol at least two miles and a haif often
limes has to be traversed to reach
school. One finds a poorer grade oil
teachers in such localities, as the bet
tt r teachers seek the town positions,
where conditions are more favorable.
In many communities there are no
si hools. Children from 7 to 14 y irs
i Id have never been to school. This
l especially true of the foreign set
tlements, us has been remarked by
some of the Russian populace, "What
for I got my chili for?" "Not to go
to school, but for to work."
I notice throughout this valley that
the children take an active Interest
in all school work, and they have with
that their parents' Interest, and that
means so much to the advancement
The splendid corps of board mem
bers, supervisors and teachers' insti
tutes help to keep the teacher and
country life in touch with each other.
One could go on making compari
sons, hut In so doing I tali, as far as
I have seen, will compare favorably
Ion all points In regard to the modern
system and advancement of educa
tion. And that Hear River valley Is, I
think, the foremost and Is there to
Why I Live in Garland
By M. D. Evans.
I have never before been asked this
queitlOB, why do I live In this town'.'
And presume that anyone that might
be Interested in knowing, would be
Rblfl to understand if they would but
look around and observe conditions as
they exist here.
There are reasons for everything
certain it is that there are many rea
sons for my living here.
First and foremost, I might say that
Garland offers the best business op
portunities of any locality with which
I am acquainted - opportunities that
;ro safe nnd sane, yet sufficiently re
munerative to be well worth the effort
necessary to make the most of them
Anyone that is honeat and ambitious
can succeed in almost any kind of
business with but small capital, pro
viding he properly organizes and man
ages his business. There ar- excel-

lent openings h"re for farming in all
Its branches, dairying, cattle, sheep
and hog feed ng. milling, canning and
numerous fo'-ms of mercantile busi
ness. Secondly, i might mention the cli
mate, which IS one of the best to be
found anywhere. We nave a Tour
season climate; all of the moderate
sort. We rarely have mercury drop
lower than zero in winter, nor run
higher than Ho degrees in the sum
mer. Siring and autumn are about
midway between these points; the
whole making a delightful change and
making the best of health possible.
The atmosphere is dry and free from
smoke and dust, such as Is found in
many of the large cities. Cases of
frozen limbs, etc., are seldom known
hire, and then only during great ex
posure; we never have ,-. ease of sun
stroke. The people of Garland are mostly
young, energetic, wide-awake, pros
perous citizens, and have located here
t i develop the natural resources with
which they are surrounded, and intend
to make this their permanent Jiome.
.Most or the population of Garland
and vicinity has come from older
towns of this and adjoining states.
They have left their former location
for the purpose of settling In a district
where their opportunities are greater
and have located here. Many of them
have had the advantages of a college
education; nearly all of them have
been to school above the average.
From among such people as those S
of Garland and vicinity, anyone can
pick a legion of friends of whom he
can be proud, and with whom he can I
take clean, pleasant enjoyment. They i
are public spirited and loyal to their
town, which fact can be shown by
their public buildings, such as
churches, schools, etc.
In building their town they have
wisely considered that what was
worth doing was worth doing well.
Garland is provided with electric
lights, two sewer systems adequate
for a town many times Its present
size, a water system and Its principal
walks are paved. Good roads have
received due attention and most of
the hghways have been graded and
surfaced, and many more are to re
ceive like attention in the near fu
ture. Garland is but ten years old and
boasts of a population of about 1,000
people, and is the trading point of,
perhaps, 5,000 people who live on the
Much has already been done for
the commercial and social advance
ment of Garland and the surrounding
country and yet we have scarcely be
gun. We are located in one of the i
best agricultural districts in the Great
West, namely: The Bear River val
ley. Garland is the commercial and
social center of that valley and I am
confident that the future of the city
ai.d valley is assured.
These are a few of the reasons why
I live in this town, and suffice to say,
my addreBB will be Garland, Utah, un
til such time as I may And a locality
that offers greater advantages for
commercial and social conditions,
when I might be induced to change,
but I have been here since the town
was founded and have not seen any
other locality that suits me as well
up to this time.
In this issue we must not forget to
mention some of the early pioneers,
who left quite thickly populated lo
calities to settle In the Hear River
valley then the land of sagebrush,
coyotes and jack-rabbits. Among the
first comers wen- David Richards and
I 'avid B, Manning, and others who
followed up were Bishop A. R. Cape
ner, W. R. Vanfleet, Ursel S. Rose, O.
L. Wilcox, F. D. Welling, W. L. Grov
er, A. H. Gleasi n, Mary Hall, J. Q. Lea
vitt, Thomas E. Secrlst and others.
They all located in what is now known
at Garland North some of them still
retaining possession of their first in
heritances here. Many changes have
taken place since those early days.
Hundreds of people have flocked to
the valley and readers of this splendid
Issue will agree with us that no val
ley In the west had made such rapid
strides of advancement as the won
derful Hear River Valley.
