Local People Spend Day in Im
proving Cemetery Lots ; 5 : 30
Service Well Attended.
Mcmorinl Day was quito generally
observed in Cedar City last Mondny,
the city cemetery being thronged all
day with busy workers intent upon tho
ornamentation and bcautification of
the various graves and lots in which
they were interested by ties of kind
ship. At 5:30 o'clock, when tho serv
ice, opened, the city of tho dead pre
sented a loving, if not a lovely, ap
Diector Frisby and members of tho
choir were present and led in tho sing
ing, in which the congregation joined.
The services wero presided over by
Councilman T. J. Jones of the City
Committee on City Property, and the
speakers wero Bp. W. R. Palmer and
Dr. J. W. Bcrgstrom.
Bp. Palmer discussed the question
of n more beautiful cemetery, and said
that with aprpoximatoly ?200,000.00
worth of monuments and gravestones
in our cemetery the general appear
ance was anything but beautiful. As
an example of what might bo accom
plished at vastly less expense, the
speaker referred to government cem
eteries which he had visited, and which
with a few well selected piccca of
statuary and modest grave markers
for ench mound, presented a much
more pleasing appearance.
I Dr. Mnrfarlane followed along the
same line, and also paid beautiful
tribute to our dead heroes resulting
from the war.
Theso was a largo congregation of
townspeople present, tho services be
ing held near the front entrance to
the enclosure.
i Local Wool Situation.
Parowan fared much better than Ce
dar City thia year in the marketing
rv-; of their wool crop. The principal
nr"3"" part of THc growers iKero pooled their
" " wool and sold at 63 or 05 cents. Only
' about one-fourth of the Parowan wool
remains unsold, we aro informed, Mr.
WiLford Day being among the seem
ingly unfortunate minority. In Cedar
City the figures are just about re
versed, hardly more than 25 of the
wool having been sold. The idea seems
to have become current that all the
sheep men might have sold their wool
at prices' from COc. to 65c. per pound
- had they not been holding for nn in
creased price, but this, wo are in
formed, is a mistake; that many of
the sheep men have never had an of
fer for their wool, and could not ob
tain one until it was sheared and op
v tain one until it was sheared and op
en for inspection. Then, before the
sheep could' be sheared, all the buyers
had retired from the field.

The money from the sale of county
road and hospital bonds is being held
up we nro informed on account of a
technicality of some kind, and work
on the roads and hospital is retarded.
An option had been taken for the hos
pital on some lots in tho southern part
of town from Mr. C. C. Bladen, and
this week when Mr. Bladen demnnded
his money or the termination of the j
option, Dr. Macfarlanc, L. W. Jones j
and Lafe McConnell stepped into the
gap and bought tho property person- j
ally, to be turned over for tho hospital
as soon as tho money is ready to pay
for it. If for any reason, the bond
money should not become available,
the individuals named would retain
ownership of tho lots. Tho amount
involved is approximately $1700.

ticular job is the organization of
boys' or girls' agricultural clubs, such
as potato, corn, pig or calf clubs for
boys and baking, sewing, canning
gardening or poultry-raising clubs for
girls. It is expected that tho work
will be taken up by the young people
with enthusiasm, since there is al
ready much interest in such lines as
evidenced by the fact that at tho

County boys, Henry Webster and Will
Hunter won prizes on samples of po

of 50 miles from Salt Lake, was

Dr. M. C. Merrill, Professor of Hor
ticulture, U. A. C, Points Out
Benefits Winch Accrue.
Some fnrms are knojn to thousands
of people while others .aro hardly
known beyond the fence that encloses
them. For this there must be a rea
son. What is it? Every year your
attention is no doubt directed to cer
tain farms that aro so popular; Jthey
f eft'difyv.sell slthey - pmWcbS' while
Ticighborim'fnrmr find Mt difficult -to
dispose of nil their products. Let us
sec if we can name Bomo of tho fac
tors responsible for the difference.
If a farm is to become popular and
its fruit sought after there must bo
something distinctive about tho place.
As you think over tho proposition you
will probnbly agree that the following
rensons have an important relation
to the distinction a certain placo at
tains: 1. The farm lias n definite and dis
tinctive nnme by which it is known.
2. Tho owner is genial, fnir nnd
squnre and welcomes people to his
place of business.
3. Grcut care is taken to produce
products of high quality thnt will
give satisfaction to the purchaser.
I. On thnt farm may be found tho
kinds nnd varieties of products thnt
people want.
Tho first point may not be first in
importance but it is tho one I wish to
emphnsize now nnd that should most
nsuredly be given positive and active
attention on every farm. No farm
should be so utterly disregarded long
er as to be left without a name. A
farm without a namo is in about the
snmc deplorable condition ns a man
without a country. It is rather par
adoxical that the crops and the an
imuls grow upon tho farm are given
names and yet the farm itself which
produces them lncks such distinction.
It is in the snmc category ns the
man who buys a car nnd then can't
use it because tho children have com
clete monopoly of it.
The moro you think about it, tho
more you will be convinced that giv
ing your farm a nnme will be ono of
the best ways in tho world of putting
it on the map. Just tho moment thnt
is done you instinctively tako more
, pride in it nnd you can't help it. In
I Utah we havo a law upon" our stat
utes providing the machinery for reg
istering distinctive names for our
I forms, thus preventing the snmo nnme
being given to two fnrms. As yet
'only very few fnrmers havo availed
themselves of that opportunity, a
fnct which is exceedingly regrettable.
But giving the farm a name and
registering it is not sufficient. That
' is surely a start in the right direction.
but it is only a start. Tho next thing
is to let others know about it. Ono of
tho elements of your success will bo
your ability to advertise your placo
,and its products. One of tho most
'effective ways to do this, especially
,if you live along a much travelled
roadway, will bo to hnvo n neat yet
I prominent signboard displayed nour or
nt the entrance to your fnrm. This
I signboard should be carefully and nr
, tisticnlly prepared by n competent
person and should bear the namo of
tho farm in an attractive and pleasing

uncertnin days "The Unfolding of De- il
mocracy;" and Marion Ballou Fisk, " PH
noted cartoonist-lecturer, who comes fH
tho first night with a highly interest- iH
mg lccturc-cntcrtninmcnt. H
The dramatic reading of "Green 'H
Stockings," the delightful comedy by 11
A. E. W. Mason, will be a delight for
nil entertainment lovers. Ruby Pago 1

The Board of County Commissioners t
met at Parowan the first three days H
of this week as a Bonrd of Equaliza- H
tion, hearing rtnd adjusting complaints H
in relation to assessments. Rather H
fewer complaints wero made thnn us- M
unl of erroneous or inequitable assess- H
ments, nnd the princlpnl changes wero H
made in the Kamirrn district, which H
resulted from n misunderstanding on 'H
the part of the appraisal committee. 'H
be spneo for a "For Sale" sign and
one for "Wanted." Undcrnenth theso M
should bo a neatly printed list in -1
Inrge letters of tho products for salo '1
and those things the owner wants to H
buy from his neighbors. Ho would H
find this signboard a most affective ad- H
vertising medium. H
All too frequently we see a crude H
shingle or board nniied to n tree and M
trying to snrve this important func- fl
Hon. Oftentimes the information is
scrawled on this shingle in a very H
poor hand and mnny times the worda M
nro misspelled, making altogether a
very miserable showing. H
Even tho the farm is not lorated on
an important highway it is surprising H
how much traffic thero is on the sldo H
roads all over the country, and tho !l
came principle would still hold good ;B
there. No matter where your farm is, M
give it an appropriate numo and dis- H
play that namo for tho passerby. It H
will astonish you how rapidly and far Jl
that information spreads and how "H
well-known your farm becomes as a H
result. H
It has been with great pleasure jM
that I have noted tho nddr.tou of many s M
such signboards on Utah farms tho H
past few months, Let the good' work ' ,'H
continue. It is one of the very, best 'il
wnys in tho world to put your faraF RH
on the map. '(
