A meeting of the young ladies association was held in the L. D. S. meeting house last Wednesday night, which was addressed by Mrs. Nancy Pugmire and Mrs. A. Laker of St. Charles. We understand that at their re cent annual meeting in Salt Lake the stock holders of the Co-opera tive Wagon and Machine Co., re elected the old board of directors and officers. D. L.

Mrs. Smeath was on the way to Richmond where her parents, Mr. and Mrs. James H.

By thus doing, with the assistance of a hook and ladder now being pro-. vided for, they will be in good j trim to fight the fiery demon ( should it appear in this city. The boys of the fire company in tend to put the chemical engine in first class shape, and to keep it continually in readiness for fires, provided the city will furnish the chemicals necessary to charge the engine. The boys intend, when the weather is favorable, to taxe a ! Last weex two Boston mining Pien representing a syndicate, came to Montpelier and hiring a buggy went over to Garden City to look at some promising claims in that section with a view of buying. Anent this it might be well to say that mining property ill over Bear Lake county is looking fine Under development work, especially at St. Charles and Nounan, and some good prospects will be developed into mines by spring. Whether the mining men above referred to made a deal or not we were unable to lèarn. All of the purchasable stock cattle in and about Bear Lake county, have been bought up by cattle buyers and good prices given therefor. The Rock Springs and other buyers from the east are now coming in to purchase beef for their towns and before spring every stockraise'r in this valley yvill have sold all that he cares to let go. This in connection with good prices for grain has made the rancher's and fanners path a pretty smooth one this winter. They are in better shape financi ally than for many years past. Old settlers claim that the win ters for ten years past have been gradually getting milder each yéar, there being less snow in January and Feburary and more rain in April and May. The reason for this ia not aparrent,' unless it bé that tilling of the soil has a ten dency to lessen the ßnow falEs,in winter and increase rain falls in the spring. The winter, so for, is the rritidest known in this valley. Big acreage ought to be sown during the coming season in Bear Lake valley. All indications point to a good market for farm produce next year and a big crop will mean plenty of money for Bear Lake farmers. The snows of the past week insure a feasoably large sup ply of water for next season and a sure yield seenis certain, barring frosts, 13. P EtneUe. the jeweler. 48 Legislative Notes. The Examine« has been asked to print more of the legislative proceedings, but it cannot for each days business would fill two or three columns and by the end ofc weex the paper would be more than filled with these matters alone. However, as fast as any business of importance occurs it will be chronicled, and at the end of the session, we will print titles of all bills passed, into laws. The eight-hour bill, providing for that many hours to constitute a day's work in the mines, was killed in the senate last week. The resolution asking the gen. eral government to appropriate $100,000 to defray the expenses of an international monetary con ference, has also been killed. Three bills looking to the dis secting of the anatomy of Fremont county, are before the legislature. One is to cut off and attach a por tion to Bingham county, and the other two to divide and make new counties, one to be called Grant, and the other Pyke.—Blackfoot News. Voting Qualifications. Mrs. M. F. Whitman recently wrote to Associate Justice Sain'l T. Corn, of the Wyoming supreme court, to know what foreign born women would have to do to acquire the right of suffrage, in relation to her husband being already natu ralized. From the following letter it would seem that a woman whose husband or father was naturalized before she was of tho age of 21, rifter coming to the United Statès would bejnaturalized also, but if she were not so naturalized she would have to take out her regular papers as is the case now with foreign born males. In other words, a woman is not naturalized through the naturalisation of her husband, or father unless she was under th'd age of 21 years at the time the citizenship was granted to the former. Here is the letter: Evanston, Wyo., Jan., o0 1897. Mrs. M. F. Whitman, Montpelier. Idaho. Déak Madam:— In reply to your ques tion; our Wyoming constitution and laws place a woman with re ference to voting and holding office upon precisely the same footing as a man. She must be a citizen of the United States and have the other necessary qualifications of a voter as to age, residence and etc. And a woman of foreign birth may become a citizen of the United States either by taxing £out natu ralization papers herself, or by virtue of the naturalization of her husband or father, as in other cases under the statutes' of the United States. In other words, she becomes a citizen ot the United States for the purposes of suffrage in Wyoming, in the same way that she would for any other purr pose. This, t think. answers your questions fully. If not, it will give me pleasure to gi/e you any further explanation or information in my power. Youts very truly, S. T. Corn.

A new Idaho probate judge married his first couple as follows: "All right," said the judge, cording to the power vested in me by the statutes of Idaho and in cordance with marital law, I de clare you man wife.

The very latest and to our mind the handiest article for the kitchen is a Standard Cabinet. The cabij net is composed of five bins, which can be used for flour, meal, oatmeal, buckwheat, raisins, dried fruits, or anything desired to be' kept free from insects, dust or dampness. A system of air tight' tea and spice drawers; also an air tight coffee bin with a coffee milt attached; an air tight bread and* cake bin, and a receptacle for knives, forks, spoons extracts, to' the side of which is attached a pair of spring scales. In fact it is the best and most conveniently ar ranged contrivance we have ever met with. It would take a column to deecribc its many* and varied uses. During the next few weeks Messrs. Badly and Son will call on every housekeepei in the coun ty with a sample and the low price means they will sell every Woman one who sees the article. It will mean less work no annoy-', arice and clean food. 5Cf rice,' Awarded Highest Honors—World's Fair,/ •DÏ5L 9 CREAM WîhDïfl MOST PERFECT MADE A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder, ffti from Ammonia,.
