the baggage and mall requires the
services of the entire mall and bag
gage force on duty at the time of its

CANAL WILL BE
Repairing the break In the Dayll
and Weber counties canal near the
Rivordale power plant is progressing
as rapidly as a large force of men
and teams can do the work The
ontractors state that the canal will
be ready to receive water by Sniiii
day. The farmers Irrigating under
the canal are expecting water on the
lands by next Monday or Tuesday.
The recent break tore awa 45 feet
of the concrete waterway, cutting deep
gullies and undermining the canal In
such a way as to require an immense
fill on which the new aqueduct can
be erected. The grade Is about com
pleted and a force of carpenters has
begun building a flume, which will
lake the place of concrete tempora
rtly. it was found impossible to re
pair the break with concrete in time
to avoid damage to growing crops, o
a flume was planned. It Is more than
probable that the flume will be used
the balance of the year.
The first break at the point now

ary by an BXCOSStve Jam of Ice and

I water that was turned into the wa

. parts or the concrete of the conal Is
intact and that there Is no danger of
a break at any other point.
Fortunately, the country under 'he
canal was islted a few days ago by
a bounteous rain, saving the crops
from damage by drouth. The farm
ors say that they have suffered no
damage and that the soil carries euf
flclent moisture at this time to pro
I teci the crops another week. Had
there been no rain, however, the to

Work on the repairing of the canal
