BUSINESS RETURNING
TO NORMAL
Business men of Montpelier are
gradually dispelling the gloom, which
was forced on them during the past
two or three months owing to ex
treme dullness of conditions in gen
eral. Business conditions in the city
are gradually returning to normal
and in many lines business is running
at full capacity. The merchants are
extremely optimistic and believe the
backbone of dull times has been brok
en for good.
The appearance of the city corro
borates the opinions of the business
men. With railroad business on the

ly good returns from their land and
herds, there is no chance for dull
times.

A PRIVATE
HOUSECLEANING
All the financial newspapers in the
country and many other publications
recently ran a story telling how Hen
ry Ford solved the difficulties of the
Ford Motor Comany in its readjust
ment from a war to a peace basis.
In brief Mr. Ford did what every
good business man has been doing.
He cut down his inventories by using
up all material on hand, reduced his
prices and distributed his product to
his various agents. He pushed his
collections, both foreign and domes
tic, sold what Liberty Bonds were
necessary, and reduced obligations to
a minimum.
"Then," says Mr. Ford, "We went
through the offices pnd cut out a lot
of Jobs created during the war. We

KEMMERER CITY COMMISSION
GIVES UP PAVING PROGRAM
Kemmerer, Wyo.—At a meeting of
the city council last night it was de
cided, bya 3-to-l vote to reject all
bids for paving which had been sub
mitted in accordance with the coun
cil's advertisement. This action was
the result of opposition which devel
oped at the last minute on the part
one heavy property holder and
banker, who was able to bring
enough pressure to bear to defeat the
improvement.
Representatives of paing contrac
tors from Idaho and Portland, Ore.,
were present at the meeting, and a
great deal of local interest and some
friction wero aroused over the pav
ing contracts which aggregated about
$76,000, for which It was proposed
