INTOXICATION A LA HOME
H J)RINKING of intoxicating bev
H crages is undeniably on the
H increase in Cedar City lately, not
H withstanding the nation as a whole
H has ratified and adopted prohibi
ts tion. Tin's is a fact despite the dis
H appearance of whiskey, brandy,
H gin, and lager beer from the mar
H . . kct, the scarcity of Dixie wine and
H the increased restrictions on the
H sale of extracts. Where, then, do
H men and boys get their intoxicat
H ing beverages? There is but one
H ' explanation they make it. They
H manufacture the vintage in their
H ' homes, from malt, sugar, hops and
H But is this simple, harmless,
H home-made concoction inebriating
H has it the kick? you ask. From
H all the evidence at hand, it surely
H has; and because it is a harm-
H less(?) home product, it is likely
H to be treated lightly, and its man-
H ufacture and use indulged in by
H many good people who would hold
H up their hands in horror at the
H thought of entering a saloon and
H taking a glass of beer over the
H bar. It is in order to call attcn-
H tion to the seriousness, of this of-
H fense both the manufacture and
H use or dissemination of the prod-
H uct that this editorial is written.
H, The manufacture of any bev-
H , . erage containing more than one'
LbbbWu half of one per cent alcohol, is a
r Federal as well as a State offense,
punishable by a penitentiary or
Leavenworth sentence. The use
H or sale or disposal in any way of
Hi such beverage is also a serious
H offense, punishable by a fine of
fl from $50 to $300, or by impris-
H onment for six months, or by both
H ,) , such fine and imprisonment. The
H v "' minimum penalty that a justice of
H ; the peace is permitted to assess
H ' when the guilt of a defendant is
H admitted or established, is $50.
H i Two young men of Cedar City,
H minors, plead guilty to being intox-
H icated, and were given the mini-
H mum sentence this week. Pretty
H stiff $50 for taking a little too
H much home brew, isn't it.
H Then would it not pay others to
H profit by these boys' experience
and steer dear of this dangerous
and expensive pastime?
There is no use talking, our law
makers have made up their minds
that intoxicating beverages must
go, and it is mighty risky, to en
gage in their manufacture, sale or
use under any guise, no matter
how harmless the commodity may
EXTENSION OF TIME
WAR RISK INSURANCE.
It was noticed in a Salt Lake Paper
a few days ngo that tho Bureau of
War Risk Insurance had allowed nn
extension of time on the special offer
which expired July 1, 1920 to January
1, 1921. Any timo between now and
January 1, 1921 all that is required to
reinstate your insurance is to pay two
months' premiums on tho amount of
insurance to bo reinstated, and tho
applicant must bo in as good health an
at the time of his discharge, and so
state in his application. Do not put
off your reinstatement too long for it
only takes a short time for six months
to pass away. Remember tho Govern
ment is the beat insurance obtainable,
you can secure practically any kind of
a policy you desire and it is at least
1-3 cheaper than you would bo able to
secure it from a Commercial Insur
ance Company. Tho Cedar Post of
the American Legion appointed tho
following members on tho Insurance
Committee and you may secure what
ever information you dsirc from them:
S. S. Ivins, Rulon Dalley, Ashton
Jones, R. T. Forbes, W. K. Granger,
John E. Walker, Elias Leigh and
jWm. C. Flinspach, of Modcna, and
Marion A. Roundy of Kanarra, Joined
tho Cedar PoBt during tho past week.
Sometime ago Dr. Petty of this
City was appointed Dental examiner
by tho U. S. Public Health Service
for this vicinity to perform dental
work for ex-service men who may
need dental work, and who may como
within ono of the following classes:
CLASS 1. Those patients who have
lost teeth or portions of either max
illa or mandible through gunshot
wounds or other injuries received in
line of duty, shall have restorations
and whatever other dental treatment
noccasary to put tho mouth in tho
best condition possible.
CLASS 2. Those patients whoso
.physical disability is directly duo to
pathological oral conditions shall havo
whatever dental treatment i8 neces
sary to placo the mouth in a healthy

CLASS 3. Thoso patients tho re

pathological oral conditions shall havo
whatever dental treatment' that is
necessary to plnco the mouth in n

SMOOT'S RURAL HOME I
BILL IS BOON TO WEST
Reclamation Service Experts
Regard it as a Great Con
By WILLIAM E. 8MYTHE,
Reclamation Engineer, U. S. Depart
ment of Interior.
Washington. D. O., July 8. In plt
of all wo hear about tho desertion of
country llfo In favor of city employ
ment and attractions, or rather bc
cfuiso of it, moro thought Is being
given today than ever beforo In our
hlHtory to tho problem of rurul life.
When n stnto llko Massachusetts'
wnkes up to tho startling truth that
02.0 per cent of Its entire population
now lives In cities; and New England
manufacturers discover thnt they aro
hopelessly handicapped, In competi
tion with manufacturers moro fav
orably situated with reaped to the
center of tho nation's population and
the Hourco of food-supply, It Is not
strange that those lending citizens be
gin Herlously to consider how rnral
life can be restored and thn stnto
modo measurably self-sustaining.
There Is cnpltal enough In Massa
chusetts and In all of our states to
flnnnco nny necessary development.
What Is lacking Is confidence on the
part of capital; and confidence on
the part of thoso who would gladly
make homes upon the land. This con
fidence can rest only on knowledge,
experience, and sound planning by
those who know. .
What could be more nnturaL, Umn
thnt the nation should turn for lead
ership In a matter of this kind to
Utah, whoso claim of pre-eminence
In "colonization and the establishment
of successful homes on the land is
beyond dlsputo? From the hour when
Drlghnm Young led tho first party of
settlers into Halt Lake valley 73 years
ngo on tiro 2-ith of July next, the people
have enjoyed a quality of leadership
not clscwhero available. The humb
lest settler has worked In the light
of the best Intelligence tho commun
ity could command; men have worked
under direction, avoiding mistakes
that havo often brought bitter disap
pointment elsewhere. No ono fam
iliar with Utah history and Interest
ed In reclamation and settlement can
help wishing that the same quality
of leadership could be available' for
homeseakers In every part of j the
United States. :.,;
Open Door of Opportunity.
The Smoot Rural Ilomo bill, which
passed tho senate In April, failed In
the housu only by a fluko at the last
moment, and seems surely destined to
become a law In December, meets
this great national need. It enables
Uncle Sam to show tho way to every
ambitious settler, but does not ask
him to curry anybody on his back. It
opens the door of opportunity, but
nsks each man to work out his own
destiny. It puts at tho disposal of
every Btato and locality tho Invalu
able nervlccs of tho government's re
clamation engineers, not only for In
vestigation, but for the actual con
struction of works and subdivisions
and settlement of land. All of this Is
accomplished without calling for a
single dollar of federal funds, and
consequently without Incurring tho de
lay of years In an effort to obtain
Updur tho Smoot hill, projects will

The sphere of the reclamation ser

Ing niipllcatlon to the secretary of tho
Interior for the benefits of the law
will first deposit Wtli the secretary
of the treasury fho estimated cost of
o thorough Investigation. If this dls--closes
a feasible project, tho landown
ers will then deposit the estimated
cost of construction, but tho entire
work will be carried on by the recla
mation service, as Is now done with
other government projects. The land
owners enter Into a contract with the
secretary of thu Interior, who fixes the
selling price of the land upon a basis
that will bo reasonably attractive to
cupltal and nt the snme time protect
tho Interests of the settler us to price,
as well as In respect to other essential
conditions. Ily this means, a national
system of dvelopment and coloniza
tion quite similar to methods in vogue
In Utuh during tho past seven years,
will be brought Into being.
Plan Is Attractive.
Senator Smoot has repeatedly as.
Hiired his colleagues that the strong
est financial Interests In the United
States would lnvost in reclamation se
curities under these favorable condi
tions. It Is equally certain that set
tlers will gladly "follow tho flag.1!
Director Arthur P. Davis states that
the Ail-American canal In Imperial
valluy, cstliaatod to cost $:i2,000,0(K),
can nnd will be built under the pro
visions of this law.
Congressman Nlcholns J. Slnott told
the house that contracts In the amount
of $15,000,000 would ho promptly en

Applications and Inquiries nro com.
Ing Into the department of the In
terior fr.mi all sections, notably Now
England and thu south. It is expected
that Utah and Idaho will be among
the foremost beneficiaries of the law.
The popularity of the measure grew
constantly during thu debate In con
gress. The bill was hailed as a
stroke of genius In the first Instance,
because It "tempered the wind to the
shorn lamb"- the national treasury.
The more it was studied tho greater
Its Importance beeumc not only urt
a practical measuro for reclamation
and settlement, but also as embodying
new principles of conservative states
manship which might In time be np
pllod to many phases of the nation's
Senator Smoot, who championed the
bill with grent energy and enthusiasm,
expects to see It ready fur tho presi
dent's blgmiture beforo the close of
this present year.
