WILL VOTE TAX
Debt for New School Buildings
Cannot be Escaped in any
Hi order that Iho tax payers of Iron
County may have a clear understand
jng concerning the nnturo and im
portance of the election for voting a
.special tax levy and bond issuo to bo
.held next Monday, August 30th, tho
following statement is submitted for
Tho solo purpose of this special
tax levy of one mill for tho next
Jour years is to raise the necessary
funds to pay off the legal obligations
now outstanding on the school build
ings recently completed in Parowan
,nnd Puragoonah and the Junior High
School building now nearly completed
in Cedar City.
Owing to the great increase in cost
of materials and labor, these build
ings are costing over $30,000.00 more
than it was estimated that they would
cost at the time bonds were voted for
their construction. The Board of Ed
ucation has merely been completing
the building program that was out
lined and begun soon after the schools
of Iron County were consolidated.
The plans for these buildings were ac
cepted nearly two years ago and con
tracts let for their construction over
a year ago. Tho contractors, there
fore, have legitimate claims against
the school District which can be col
lected by law, and if the funds to meet
these claims nrc not raiser by the
special tax they will have to bo raised
" some other way. We have tho build-
, ings and they must be paid for. A
special levy of one mill for four years
; makes the extra tax burden compara
tively light and offers the simplest and
, easiest way of meeting these obliga
k ' Make it possible for the Board of
jtY . Education to meet these obligations
r 5lUTWnot?msrvay-'by voting-ycs on
?V' both questions.
' SPECIALIST IN SEWING
' COMING TO IRON COUNTY
Miss Rozinn Skidmore, formerly
, instructor in sewing nt the 'B. A. C.
and now specialist in Domestic Art for

v On Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 10 a. m. and
I at 2 p. m. she will hold sewing classes
' ' in the Relief Society Hall for the
women of Cedar City. No admission
1 is charged to these classes and tho
I public is invited to attend. The
morning session will be in the naturo
of a demonstration of how to make
t forms so that each woman may do her
own fitting at homo; the afternoon

BONUS SPEEDS UP
" District Road Engineer F. P.
Gowan states that tho Christensen
Construction company has a force of
men repairing the road made impas-
flood, and thnt they will have it opened
scovel within a week. The company,
in its determination to complete tho
first and second sections this fall, is
putting on a night shift to run thfr
steam shovel, and also is encouraging
the men to do their best by means of
n bonus for quick work. If tho shovel
moves twenty times in one day, the
men get ten cents each bonus for each
move made. The average amount of
road made at each move is five feet.
At present the shovel is cutting its
way' high up against the canyon wall,
and is a great sight for tourists in its
I , present position. In fact, the section
1 tjfeof the canyon now being penetrated
, 'J T is full of wild beauty well worth a
' ) visit. It is considered a good thing
,i that the flood camo and did its work
before the road was covered with
J tourists, some of whom might not
I have escaped death or injury. Tho
repaired road will be built safely u
that like damage cannot occur again.

left off entiner foods which were too
difficult of digestion for his tender
years. Two children who were not
free to gnin on account of diseased'
tonsils have had them removed and
now have nothing to hinder them from
making good, stendy gains.

W. K. Granger, manager of tho
Cedar baseball team, which returned
Inst Saturday from their trip through
the Sevier valley, says the team mndo
a very pleasant and successful tour.
They won threo out of flvo games
played, tho following digest of each
gnmo being furnished through tho
courtesy of Mnnngcr Granger:
Panguitch game Monday, August
1G. Score, Ccdnr City, 15, Panguitch
12. All tho Ccdnr ttinm played good
ball, especially Watson who mado ono
three bnggcr, and two homo runs.
Corlett Simpkins was, taken from his
position ns driver, and played right
and left field, Corlett had not plnyed
for some time nnd was not sure on
fielding, thus tho shift from right to
left, but to no avail they insisted upon
following him. But tho errors thnt
ho mndo were well evened up when
ho came to tho bat, out of four times
up, he mado three clean hits.
Richfield game, August 17, Richfield i
11, Cedar City 4. This was a good'
game and all tho boys played well, if
there was any individual who deserved ,
special mention it would he Root, who
played n wonderful game on second
base. We wero up agninst a pitcher
with'n reputation of pitching numer
ous no-run and no-hit games, who nlso
received a salary if $200 per month
for pitching. Cedar lnndcd him for
11 clean hits and four runs. At tho
end of tho seventh inning the score,
was 4 to 4, when a considerable num-'
ber of errors were mado by Cedar
which cost the gnmc.
Monroe game, August 18, Monroe
18, Ccdnr 10. Again errors lost the
game for Ccdnr, at tho end of the
sixth inning tho score was Cedar 10, '
Monroe. 4. ;
Elsinorc game, August in, Cedar 2,
Elsinorc 1. This was a six inning gnmo
discontinued in account of rain. El-1
sinorc was reputed to have one of the
best if not the best tenm in thnt sec-1
tion and the game was just like tho1
score looks, a fast snappy camo both1
teams playing unerring ball. George
Nelson pitched n wonderful game for.
Marysvale game, August 20, Cedar
in, Marysvale, C. All tho men were
on their toes and played good consis-'
tent ball and tho result was never in
doubt, although the Mnrysvale team1
nnd its rooters never lost hope until
tho last mnn wns retired.
Tne Codnr tenm is one we enn well
be proud of, ns ball plnyers they,
showed up well in fnct they were n
better batting putfit by fnr than nny

ON COUNTY FAIRS
Farm Experts Criticise Excessive
Prizes for Races at Expense
of Farm Exhibits
Tho following comment on county
fairs and premium lists sounds so
sensible we nro pleased to quota it
in full. It is from tho Agricultural
College at Logan:
Alrendy ttho official programs of
some of tho county fairs aro coining
out nnd ns you look them over you seo
hero and thero something to cause
wonder. Thus: ono county offers
$1500.00 in prizes for horse rncjng,
exclusivo of entries, nnd yet offers
only ?2X.0 for the best half bushel of
benrdod wheat. And yet this county
raises every yenr 100,000 bushels of
this wheat and is famous for it nil
over tho world. Of course wo know
thnt human nature everywhere loves
horse racing and the circus, but even
so $2.(50 seems a pitifully small in
ducement for growing a world famous
product, while so much money for
racing leaves little encouragement for
other livestock interests. Other fair
programs seem to have been copied
from eastern progrnms and offer
premiums only for pure bred stock.
Ill W A lhHn, hi AifeTi I. b l..u11 lf 1- . J
i Pure bred stock is nnturally the best,
, but not so nbundant in many coun
I ties as wo wish it wero nnd so it would
i seem to' bo more sensible to offer
i premiums for whnt wo havo in grent
(abundance. Don't copy nny old fair
catalog, but havo your list represent
your locality and include grndo nn
, imnls such ns work teams, high milk-
ing cows, boy'B ponies anil men's sad
dle horses. Havo pure bred animals
i if you can, but havo these anyway.
Before tho fairs are held arrange
ments should bo mndo for receiving
the stock at the fair grounds, so thnt
animals will not havo to bo lead to
and from tho fair grounds to get
shelter nnd food. Then, too, every-'
thing possible should bo done to con-
trol tho crowds that gather .around
during tho judging of livestock. Bent
them back with a club if necessary,
but bo sure to havo plenty of room '
for the judges to do their work nnd
for every interested spectator to
watch. Prof. Wm. E. Cnrroll, of tho
animal husbandry department nt tho'
Utah Agricultural College, says that
in this mattter of crowding close to
tho judges the Utah State Fnir is as
great a sinner ns tho county fairs. If
"make way for the judge" is tho
slognn in tho county it will soon bo
heard in tho enpitnl at fnir time. ,
