sole friends in this country Richard
Dinneford and J 1 E Beaidsley and two
other emploj of the Poruana ce
ment company was assisting in the
removal of a large eightton rolling
mill from one of the company sheds to
the ward A large fortyton jack was
under the mill at one end and some
skids were being placed Williams
crawled under the machine to place
one of the skids when the jack slipped
almost the eutire weight of the mill
falling on him and catcblng him across
tie hips Only a few minutes before
four other men including the two
friends of Williams had been under
tla machine and no danger was ex
pp ted Mr BeardMey says the wet
arJ slippery condition of the ground
c used the jack to skid slightly and
thl weight of the mill forced it out
Williams wan born in England twen
t > four years ago and three years ago
emigrated to Canada with Richard
Dinneford where they remained until
1907 The two friends then came to
the United States and have been in
Ttdh for about six months working at
different places in Salt Lake Beards
ley and Dinneford said last night that
Williams was unmarried but that his
father and mother and several younger
brothers and sister were still living In
England and that he had been sending
money home to assist in the support
of the family
Two Operations Performed
The oung man was conscious the
last and underwent two operations one
for internal injuries in the Intestinal
region and another small one In the
left foot Only a few sutures were
necessary in the case of his foot and
Dr John F Critchlow performed both j
operations According to the hospital
authorities Williams died from shock
resulting from his injuries J
J E Beardsley was with him until
he died and said last night Tom c
and I had been friends since boyhood
in the old country and Dinneford and
myself were the only friends he had in
the United States He was game to
the last although in terrible pain and
when he came out of the operating
room about 3 clock he told me that
he knew he was going to die and
for half an hour or more talkea of his
folks at home asking me to write
them and giving me several messages
of a personal nature to deliver to them
Dinneford and I intend to see the of
ficials of the Portland company tomor
row to make arrangements for the In
surance as we have been paying 1 a

7 i C W Post of Battle Creek Mich the head of
f19 the Postum Cereal company and one of the most sue
ressful advertisers of the day says of circulation
I Publishers are slowly coming to realize that the
moment they refuse to place before the man who pro
poses to buy space for making announcements an ab
solute unqualified and honest statement of the service
rendered it forces the advertiser to the only conclu
sion that he can reachthat is that the man seeking
to sell the space is conscious of the fact that the space
V he has to sell is not worth the price he asks for it
Therefore he seeks to cover up and to prevent any ex
amination of that which he proposes to give in ex
change for the buyers money

I The Best Christmas I Have Spent I Gor Spry William I
t f OVBRNOR Just which was the
VJ best Christmas day you have
This was the question put to William
Spry governor of the state of Utah
three times yesterday each time only
to be answered with an increasing
smile of joyous demlniscence and the
final answer
My boy every one that I can recall
has been the best except that each one
has been just a little bit better than
the one before and I expect that the
coming Christmas Is going to be the
beat yet
If you tell me just what period you
want to refer to maybe I can answer
you betted When I was a little chap
the Christmas that Santa Claus
brought me a red bobsled seemed to
have i capped the climax of Christmas
joy Then there were the years of
youth when I thought I was reaching I
manhood Every year at Christmastide
was the best and better than the days I
of the red cap and the red bobsled i
I Then the best came when I was mar
ried and since then with my children
I each Christmas has been better than
all the former ones put together Sim
ply judging from the past thats why
I say the best yet is coming this next
After all Christmas with its holly
and cheer its pleasure of gifts and re
membrances with the peacefulness of
which the day is symbolic ia bound to
be a sort of a successive best day One
might my nat handCbrtst
I I mas was his best tat that W all from
his viewpoint The boyhood Christmas
with its Santa CUus and 41I foft h ppy
illusions lovingly prepared to be car
ried out by the fond father and mother
is replaced by the Christmas of the
young man or woman They know that
Santa Claus and his reindeer coming
downfrom the Arctic and riding over
roof tops is al a myth but in his place
they rear another Santa Claus Then
comes the day when the boy grown
older plays the same game that was
played on him years before and It Is
still the best Christmas for him
