M THE SINGLE STROKE
TWO strokes where one would suffice mean
waste. The first essential of success is to know
H fy how, but hardly second to it is the concentrate
H - ing power that brings the result the first time.
H Browning noted two points of importance in the
H adventure of a diver one, when a beggar, he pre-
H , pares to plunge; one, when a prince, he rises with
H his pearl.
H To plunge without knowing the depth of the
H water or ignorant of the precise nature of the object
H sought is to hazard failure. Wc hear of fortunate
M folk to whom things always come out right, but the
H gods of luck are fickle and prone to nod on the dais.
H The victor's crown is half won when we face the tar-
M r get confident that the bow is well strung and the ar-
H row carefully fashioned.
M , The world is very busy, and it is becoming a dif-
M y- , ficult place for those who dissipate their energies in
H Kf futile effort. The good jobs are held by those who
M do it now and do it right. The movement of the tides
m on all earth's shores is calculated far in advance for
B the mariner's protection. Time spent in preparing
M i for an action is time saved. Experiment is essential
M to the attainment of perfection ; but experiment may
M be conducted with an economy of material.
H "Make thy opinion which of two" is sound ad-
H vice. And we should have a care that our opinions
m are informed opinions and not ignorant prejudices.
1 True conservatism lies riot in performing a task
H in the easiest way, but in the best way ; for it is the
H end that crowns us, not the fight.
H I watched a great painter begin a portrait with
H one, long, free sweep of the brush; but he had stud-
H ied his subjdet with minute care and his bold initial
H stroke was the expression of a perfect co-ordination
H 1$: of hand and eye.
H Life cannot be played as an errorless game ; but
H the score-card makes a handsomer appearance if we
H haven't stupidly fumbled the ball.
H Any day is a day of glory that leaves us with a
H consciousness that we have skimped nothing, and
H that die fruits of our industry are commensurate with
H our talents. One such day assures us of another and
H "a 'better, and renews in us youth and hope and the
H ' will not only to live, but to live nobly. Meredith
M ' -Nicholson, in the Pall Mall Magazine.
H TJ CITIES ARE ADVERTISING
H T TUNDREDS of cities and towns of the United
AJL States have found it profitable to advertise
H their advantages. Possibly California commun-
H ities have used this aid to growth to the best advan-
H tage, but eastern and mountain cities have not been
H slow in following suit.
H .' Akron, Ohio has a great billboard at the station
H " which tells people that it is the rubber manufacturing
H center of the world and is also an important clay pro-
M ducts (fenter, etc. Akron also sends out much free
M ' "press matter to newspapers. Spokane, Washington,
H employs a press agent to send out stories of that city
H and the wonderful western country. Findlay, Ohio,
H has recently adopted the same plan. Denver, Colo.,
H is using the movies and has also put out a popular
H song to advertise its scenic attractions.
H Salt Lake uses press matter, pamphlets and other
H printed publicity and also makes it a point to secure
E as many conventions as possible. Besides, every
M Salt Laker is a booster for his home city, making it a
H point to speak a good word for it whenever he meets
B a stranger or receives a visitor.
H Every citizen of Cedar too, should make it a
H point to advertise his city. Forever blest and be-
H loved is the bearer of glad tidings. We have here a
H city of many charms and of vast possibilities. Spread
fl the good news, If you see in your home city nothing
H of good, it is because there is no good in you.
H Another easy and effective way to advertise Ce-
j dar City is to send out to distant friends copies of the
H home paper containing news stories of especial inter-
B est. Not one chance should be overlooked for edu
H . ' eating the world to the advantages and possibilities
of Cedar City. ;Li ' ' . . "
BEHER TAKE CARE
THE home brew industry has shown consider
able activity in and around Cedar City recent
ly, and our advice to those indulging in the
pastime is to take care. The manufacture of any
beverage containing more than one-half of one per
cent alcohol is now a federal government offense,
and Uncle Sam is a dangerous customer to monkey
with. Once you arc caught, regrets will be idle and
useless. Now is the time to think seriously of the
matter and to get right on the proposition, before
the heavy hand of the law lays hold of you.
If the manufacture of home brew were permitted
to go on unchallenged it would be only a short time
until intoxication would be more common than under
a saloon regime. Certainly this is not the' intent of
the framers of our laws, and if it is necessary to make
examples of a few lawbreakers in order to bring this
fact home to us, it will certainly be done.
Better forget about the home brew fad and save
yourselves a lot of misery and useless regrets.
CEDAR'S STRATEGIC POSITION
CEDAR CITY is the natural business, educational
and sporting center for southern Utah. One of
our greatest natural assets and we have a lot
of them is our location. We are the center, the
"hub" of the south. If wc do not draw to us the
people and business of surrounding districts, the peo
ple of Cedar City will be' to blame, for Nature has
done her part.
A lot of our people, particularly some of the bus
iness men have come to realize this and are beginning
to arrange for attractions and celebrations which will
tend to establish Cedar City as a worth 'while town
in which to spend holidays and vacations. One of
these attractive days is promised us on July 24th, and
a cordial invitation is extended to the 'people of all
the surrounding towns and counties to join us in this
Pioneer Day celebration. Base ball between our lo
cal team and the Beaver nine, a gorgeous display of
fire-works, afternoon contests and games of various
kinds, with the inevitable grand ball in the evening
go to make up the day's activities and attractions.
Come to Cedar City for the Twenty-Fourth.
IT is no use, we cannot continue to put out a pa
per of the size and quality of The Record at the pres
ent subscription price. On and after September first,
the price will be $2.50 per year. The ever increasing
cost of print paper, of living and of labor have forced
tin's upon us. The suspension of the Salt Lake Herald
last week an old, well-established, and splendidly
equipped daily paper, from these very causes, has
sounded a note of warning for us "smaller fry."
And come to think of it, $2.50 for The Record when
its present size and contents are considered, is not
bad. That was the price of this paper 25 years ago,
when it was a little sheet of 4 five col. pages print
ed wholly in type as large as you are reading 'here,
and when print paper was one-third as, high as it is
today. Besides we are giving you an opportunity
during the next month to "stock up" at the old price.
Read our announcement elsewhere in this issue.
A LITTLE encouragement now and then helps a
person or a community to thread life's stony pathway.
The human animal is naturally an optimistic creature
and responds to encouraging reports, no matter how
often they have been followed by disappointment.
Therefore, we are always glad to hear the welcome
neAVS that the long-looked for railroad is about to be
built again, and the great era of industrial activity
which lies just ahead, commenced upon. Some time
this talk is going to prove to be something besides
the false cry of "Wolf I Wolf!" And anyhow, the
Old Capitol Co. is the only aggregation offering us
any encouragement for the building of a railroad at
the present time, and why should they not be given
all the encouragement in our power? We have every
thing to gain and nothing to lose. So long as the rail
road is recognized as an advantage, we are glad to
have somebody working for it.
"ATTY GEN. PALMER had his nerve." said a
prominent Democrat of Salt Lake City, to the editor
of The Record this week, "when he permitted his
name to go before the San Francisco convention for
presidential honors, after trie way he has neglected
the duties of his high' office, and permitted the profit
eers to go unpunished." Well, that is the way
we looked at it, but we had expected from past ex
perience with politicians that our esteemed friend of
Salt Lake would defend the attorney general to the
last ditch, if only because he belonged to the same
political party. But here, for once, was an exception
to the rule. He also made a lot of other admissions
which would appall the average member of his
party ; but this is a part of his code of ethics. He be
lieves in frankness, even though the truth pinches.
Anyhow he says he is always suspicious of the man
or party that is always right.
THERE are really only two theories of govern
ment, Mr. Bourke Cockran told the San Francisco
convention democracy and autocracy. He argued
for democracy, naturally, and yet his party for the
past seven years has been run on an autocratic basis.
