w 'k gram by pupils of Junior High
jjm school age than this charming por-
H trayal of tho story of our Savior's
9B birth. All of tho simple, yet drama-
B tic incidents leading up to and in-
K eluding tho final scene if tho Christ
B Child crodeled in a manger mako n
IEr strong appeal to tho religious emo-
"' tions of young people and stimulato
aMr- their imagination, powerfully. :
HBF!"iBy repeating thov performance thlr
Efc year, with practically tho same pu-
flffi Pils in tho fading roles as wero in
IPx last year's presentation, opportunity
HI )".;.. was given for those who saw them
B both to noto the remarable improve-
9 ment ono year of development and
another coaching of their parts has
I . made in these young people,
But perhaps thobest feature of it
1 nil is that tho realization these pu
1 pils have of their own improvement
lias added to their self respect and
the respect they have for their
B teachers. Tho feeling throughout
B the audiehqo was that of real satis-
faction and prido in tho excellent
B 'work of their boya and girls. Every
H featuro of tho performance was pre-
s'ented with" an artistic finish seldom
B seen in school productions, while tho
B :lear strong tones and good enuncia-
B tion of those who had speaking parts
B were a joy to thoso in the back part
B of tho hall.
H While everyone connected with tho
fi entertainment is deserving of ap-
"Hfl? preciation, yet special mention should
17 be given tho teachers most active
ii in directing tho work of putting it
yi on. Miss Fenton as chief executive
(M or manager, keeping the orgonlzn-
tion on tho job. Mr. Thoma3, as
dramatic coach and prompter of
I clear speech, Mr. Dalloy as musical
jf director. Miss Evelyn Palmer as
jf snost reliable and enthusiastic ac
I ' companist, Miss Mildred Lewis as
ft designer of costumes and composer
(k and director of dances, and Mr.
B Pendleton as chief property man
B and stage carpenter, Mrs. Ethel Per
B ry as stage directress and make up
B artist. All if theso gnvo without
B stint of their time and energy to
B mako the affair tho success it was.
B Without question this was one of
B tho best costumed performance we
B have had, and many of the scenes
B were highly artistic stage pictures
Tho chorus work, while it may have
B lacked in strength, was decidedly
H sweet and tho solo parts were well
H received. The dancing was excep-
H tionnl'for a school production. Par-
8 ticularly noticablo was tho ensemble
H work in the Angel dance. Such un-
H ison of rythmic action from n group
Wk of beginners shows splendid train-

TIE TO PREPARE
CITIZENS NOW SUGGESTING
THAT THE CITY PAVE MAIN
STREET ..IN THE BUSINESS
SECTION NEXT YEAR.
Many prominet citizens, and quite
a few who arj not so prominent are
now suggesting that the City Fath
ers prepare for the paving of Main
Street in tho business section.
Wo have a good Main street, well
graded and capped, at present, but
in tho especially dry seasons the
capping is easily whipped up by the
winds prevailing in this locality, the
dust invariably entering tho business
houses and doing great damago to
goods. In fact tho business houses
lose thousands of dollars annually by
giods being spoiled by tho excessive
dust driven in tho stores by tho winds
from Main street
Besides that tho street as it now
stands is not as nice looking as it
should bo for a city as progressive
as is Cedar, and during tho wet sea
son tho capping becomes cut up by
autos and wagons until the street
looks liko ono of tho old time cord
uroy roads over tho swamps in tho
marshy sections of the stater
In tho wet seasons thoso who cross
Main street afoot many times have
to wado anklo deep in mud, which
would bo a thing of tho past if the
street was properly paved.
And also during the muddy season,
it is next to impossiblo for an auto-
mobilist to get to and from his car
'without attaching himself to some-
'where in tho neighborhood of five
'hundred pounds of tho best mud that
lays out of doors, piling it into his
car several times a day, until tho
machine becomes so loaded that its
'power is not sufficient to carry it
By all means let's have a paved
main street, at least, and if possible
other streets adjoining.

jf IN CEDAR CITY
Reuben E. Winterrose, of Hober
City, an expert licensed embalmer,
has been persuaded by tho Cedar
ii'umber Company to locnto in Cedar
and open up tho business of embalm
ing. Mr. Wintcrroso will havo his par
lors in tho uppor floor of tho Cedar
Lumber and Commission Co.'a build
ing, which is now being remodelled
to suit embalming purposes, and
necessary equipment added.
Tho gentleman comes hero highly
recommended, and is a graduate of
the Los Angoles school of Anatomy,
Sanitation and Embalming. He has
jhad quite a lot of experience with his
'father who is an expert ombalmcr
himself, and tho schooling Mr. Wint
Grroso has had eminently fits him for
'tho work of embalming. ,
SOMEONE SHOOTS AT HIM.
Whilo coming up from St. Georgo
yesterday afternoon Joo. Farnsworth,
tho mail contractor, was fired at on
this sido of Leeds las hort distnnco"
Ha was driving along with a light i
load when suddenly ho heard a shot,
and immediately a crosh of glass as
a bullet zipped through his wind-,
'shield, just missing him by a few
ahead to seo if ho could distinguish
who was firing, but saw no ono. Ho!
was considerably startled, but decid
ed to drive on, which ho did and was
not further molested.
Tho time was 5 o'clock and it was
too near dark for anyono to bo hunt
ing, consequently it seems that a do
llberato attempt was made by some
one to injure' Mr. Farnsworth.
Tho gentleman has no idea who tho
person that did tho shooting might
bo and" does not have an enemy in
tho country to his knowlcdgo that
would "bump him off" by the gun

The avenuo nsw undor way is $o

For tho present tho avenuo will

BAND TO SERENADE.
Gordon Hunter tolls us that tho
i band is preparing to serenado tho
,town Xmos night, which is good
news, as tho music that this officiont
.organization renders always enlivens
I the hearers. ,
For tho past two or threo years
tho band has serenaded on holidays,1
and it seems to us, the appreciation
has not been as much as it should
But we nro convinced that this
time tho efforts of tho band will bo
fully appreciated, as the spirit of
Christmas will not be of the fullest
unless wo receive a littlo of tho in
spiring music which tho Cedar Band
is capable of rendering.
