Here is another of the fourteen
As one of the requirements of a
first class scout I started on my fourteen
mile hike August the fourteenth
at eight-fifteen in the morning. I
started from the corner on which
stands the residence of Mr. John Kinard,
going up Johnstone street, until
I came to Johnstone's woods. I
went through the woods until I came
to the highway and was off for Prosperity.
The roads were in a splendid
condition, and as it was not hot. we
rested only one time. Tne crops
looked fine and the damage done by
the boll weevil was net so very notic
ee.bie. I saw several v.c.e pea
patches on Mr. John \Te?!*s place a*
well as several r-n? corn fields. I
saw several houses and stores, and
many houses that had been painted.
s3j the "Kiddie Koops" on the front
porches I judged that the country
people were taking care of their children
properly. We passed by a
spring and decided that that would
be the spot where we would lunch
coming back. We walked on until we
came to a place where the convicts
were top soiling the road and then
went up an embankment and walked
on the sidewalk on into Prosperity,
where the gentleman with me made
a few purchases. We remained in
Prosperity about a half an hour, and
then started back to the spot where
we were to eat. I stopped at a house
to get water and while there I asked
the lady oi the house how the crops
-fVtif fVif* nnil weevil
wtie. one utu vi?*v
was eating them up. " Wc walked on
toward our stopping place, seeing
many travelers who asked us to ride,
but I told them I was passing a test
and had to walk. We walked on to
the spot where we were to e^t and
ate our lunch. I bathed my feet in
the cool water, rested about an haur
and a half, and then starred for
Newberry. We stopped at a store
fos a drink, and from there on heme
nothing happened until we got most
home. When we got nearly t) a parage
it started rainnig. We ran to
a store and waited until the shower
nroa ftvor From there we walked
hoiae stopping in town about ten minutes.

We left at seven-thirty, passed a.
pirate and turned to the left, went
on a little farther and crossed a
creek. Then we passed a little store
and house with lightning rods. We
p.-.r-eti a tree in a man's buggy, and
a lots of rocks and a house to the
right not far from the road. Went
a littie further on and passed an adveitisement
of Way's drug store, and
turned to the right. Passed a r ~t
in a pole where sparrows were . unning
a bird out of his nest. Passed
a cotton gin and a gas tank, passed
a lot of cows, passed a church and
school house, passed a car box wun
umber in it, and an old boiler and a
big pile of wood. We noticed the
place where the old road camp used
to be. V/e opened a box of raisins
*dte them nc?r a littie score. Than
we went into Prosperity and bought
some candy and stayed a little while.
Then we started back, meeting a
man with whom wc talked ?or a littie
bit. Cyril's hat biew of and he
had to chase it for r.bout five yards.
After going- on for a littlt bit we ate
dinner which was: eggs, biscuit,
ham sandwiches, sausages, pickle?,"
crackers, raisins and milk chocolate.
Mria-ram, but it was good, even
though all mixed. Jim and Earle
came along while we were eating,
and we invited them to share our
food. After finishing we went on, it
started to rain but soon stopped, so
we made a trail for Earle and Jim
to follow. We walked cn and pot
hack at one-thirty, making the trip
in six hours.

Bracing Him Up
It was the morning of the new curate
s first sermon, and he was msot
anxious to make a good impression.
As he was rather a vain young ma t ,
he turned to the old verger and aske
sctto vobf: "Could you get "me -i
glass?. A small one will do." Th"
verger hurriedly departed, but soor
returned with someting under hi:
cqat. "I know what it is to be nervous,"
he said kindly. "I've just
brought you a w>.ole bottle." The
curate blushed and gasped, for he
was not a drinking man. "Bu?
but?" he began. "Ssh!" said the
verger. "I'd never have get it if I
hadn't said it was for you."?The

"THE LITTLE SHEPHERD
CF KINGDOM COME"
John Fox, Jr., was a master of delineation
of mountain characters of
the South. His Kentuckians in the
"Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come"
which in dramatic form comes to the
opera house Thursday evening, September
21, are real people not the
fancies of an author's mind. They
have their feuds, their strong likes
and dislikes, their quaint ideas of
chivalry. The central figure of the
play is "Chad," a wanderer until ii
is disclosed that he is of excellent
blood and has been sought by a
wealthy uncle. Then there is the
girl. Melissy, the sweet winning maid
cf the mountains. About these two
is woven one of the most fascinating
love stories' conceivable. '"The Little
Shepherd of Kingdom Come" is filled
with delightful characters such as the
Major and the Squire, who are such
stirring characters in the story,
Great as the book was, and there can
be no question on this score, the
play is even better.
In this flippant and sophisticated
age. sons of toil appear to have a
growing contempt for their sire.

but the conflagration is beyond their

the state department was advised tonight

The missing Americans were all

been accounted for.
All warships of the various powers
in the port of Smyrna are crowded
with refugees, said Captain Hepburn
and ships were constantly leaving for
nearby ports loaded with refugees.
The American destroyer Flotilla was
taking an active part in the work, he
said, the Simpson having- sailed with
a large party for Athens, the Edsall
with 600 for Salonika and another
for Pieraeus with 400. Among those
on the last ship?the name of which

Where the Fault Lay
Senator Reed Smoot said at a luncheon
in Salt L.ike City:
"You can never please the ultraradicals,
the Communists, the bol shies
ana people of that sort. Legislate
as you will in their, behalf, they
will always be dissatisfied.
"It's like the farmer. His pas-tor
said to him one day:
44 'Well, Horace, you're a great
growler and complainer, but you cer
tamly can t growl and complain tnis
year about your potato crop. Why,
man. they tell me that both in quantity
ana quality it's the finest potato
crop in the state of Utah/

doctor, but whar am I goin' to git the
bad potatoes to feed me hogs?' "?

is far from a dependable test. For
