bushels of grain, an average of
66 2-3 bushels to the acre.
A pait of the acreage was
sown to wheat and a part to
oats. Tho "wheat averaged fifty
bushels and the oats eighty-five
bushels per acre.
This is a record that is seldom
equalled and establishes the fact
without doubt that Parowan
valley has some of the
richest and most productive land
on the earth. Tho possibilities
of the soil of Iron county are
just being fully realized, as is
evidenced by the large number
of new settlers all over the
county and the nxt few years
will no doubt witness such a
phenomenal growth as to place
this portion of the state on a par
with any other section in an

Salt Lako City, Utah, Oct. 7.
Emptying (the viuls of his
wrath in words that fairly bris
tle with withering denuncia
tions, President Joseph P.
Smith, in his opening address
before tho semi-annual confer
ence of the Mormon hosts Fri
day morning, took verbal von
gonce upon the people of Mexico
for tho persecution of the Mor
mon colonists. Ho called them
"a race of low, degraded, god
less, vindictive, shiftless, idle
brigands, renegades, murderers
and plunderers, unworthy tho
name of humans." "Tho Ameri
can government," he said, "has
played tho part of wisdom in
standing aloof and letting dog
i at dog."
President Smith mado formal
announcement that the mission
of the Mormons church in
Mexico wa3 at an end and that
the brave men and women who
had risked their fortunes and
I their lives in tho attempt to
build up a branch of tho church
in that" barbarous country" are
released from further duly in
the southern republic
and specific references", Presi
dent Smith bespoke his warm
regard for tho present national
administration in tl" United
stab's and deplored th restless?-ess
which, he ni was
abroad in the wtrld, ttriv.. g to
change the old irder of things.
He urged the church members
to ever hold in revcrenco the
constitution of America and to
always vote to elevate only hon
orable, wise and conscrvalie
men to places of power in the
administration of the constitution.
Tuesday in the temple in Salt
Lake City, Mr. II. Goidon Math
eson and Miss Gwen Iligbee
were united in marriage, at the
same time Miss Rhcda Math
eson, sister of the groom, was
made the wife of Mr. Wm.
Wood .
The announcement of the
marriage will no doubt be a sur
prise to the many friends of
these young people, tho fact of
their aporoaching wedding be
ing kept a profound secret from
even their closest friends.
Mr. Matheson is the son of
Bishop A. G. Matheson of this
city, and last week was given a
ball in the Ward Hall in honor
of his departure on a mission to
Germany. The bride is one of
Cedar City's most talented and
winsome young ladies, and a
daughter of Alonzo Iligbee,
one of the best known citizens
of the county.
Within a few days the groom
will leave for Germany to spend
two years in the mission field
for the church, and the bride will
return to her home in this city
where she will continue to teach
in tho city schools, a position
which she now holds.
