One of the leading farmers of
Parowan 'valley last week
threshed his harvest of grain,
and the particulars regarding
the yield sounds almost like a
fairy tale, at least it reminds
one of the prospectus of an
energetic land scheme.
Wm. Stubbs, from 21 acres of
(and secured a total of 1,400
bushels of grain, an average of
(5G 2-3 bushels to the acre.
A part of the acreage was
sown to wheat and a part to
oats. The '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. The 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 andjhe nxt few years
will no doubt witness such a
phenomenal growth as to place
this portion of the state on a par
with any Mer section in an
agricultural ay.

Salt Lake City, Utah. Oct 7.
Emptying the vials of his
wrath in words that fairly bris
tle with withering denuncia
tions, President Joseph F.
Smith, in his opening address
before tho semi-annual confer
ence of tho Mormon hosts Fri
day morning, took verbal von
gence upon tho people of Mexico
for the persecution of the Mor
mon colonists. He called them
"a raco of low, degraded, god
less, vindictive, shiftless, idle
brigands, renegades, murderers
and plunderers, unworthy the
name of humans." "Tho Ameri
can government," he said, "has
plaved the part of wisdom in
standing aloof and letting dog
tat dog."
President Smith made formal
announcement that tho mission
of tho Mormons church in
Mexico wa3 at an end and that
the bravo men and women who
had risked their fortunes and
their lives in tho attempt to
build up a branch of the church
in that" barbarous country" are
released from further duty in
the souilVrn republic.
and specific references, Presi
dent Smith bespoko his warm
regard for tho present national
administration in tho fT,)ited
states and deplored th rest
lessress which,, he mi was
abroad in the wtrld, Uriv...g to
change the old rdor of things.
Ho urged the church members
to over hold in reverence the
constitution of America and to
always vote to elevate only hon
orable, wise and consul vatie
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 Rhoda 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 tho many friends of
these young people, the fact of
their apnroaching wedding be
ing kept a profound secret from
oven 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.
