On the 20th day of December
1904, the amusement committee
of Cassia Stake formulated a set
of rules governing
ing the dances to be given in the
We have in our
possession a copy of these rules
and we consider them excellent.
They are not intended to curtail
the liberties of any, but are got
ten up tor the good of the young
people of the stake. Among the
rules we note these:
1, Dances are not to be given
offener than once in two weeks,
in each ward and all wards shall
party on the same
2. All dances shall close
promptly at 12 o'clock.
3. Every party shall be open
ed and closed by prayer.
One square dance shall be
given to every two round dances,
and that before any such dance
begins, order shall be attained.
10. Thut all disreputable per
sons and others who disturb the
peace, shall, alter having

do not comply with the rules of

To Policy Holders.
We learn from reliable sources
that many policy holders in the
large insurance companies are

on the part of officers of thej
coni panics that have recently heenl
exposed. In our opinion, those'
who have believed in insurance
in the past and have carried pol
icies for a number of years ought
not to allow their policies to
lapse. The principle of insur

extravagant misuse of fupds
will not effect the individual pol
icy holder—so much as is imag
It is to be remembered
that these are mammoth compan

insured for large sums as an in

protection and every man with a
family should be so protected, is

We quote from the Mem
phis News Scimitar:
In all States are strict laws

concerning the improper use of
money in promoting the business
of the insurance companies may
come up from time to time as !
they frequently have come up in j
the past but the law - sees to it
that the assets of the companies
is sufficient to pay
losses. |And this is true:

There is no good reason why
any one should let go his policy in
any well managed company.
Fine Piece of Work.
One of the finest pieces of work
coming from a country press ;on
that we have seen in a long, j
long time is the Industrial Num-,

at St. Anthony. We thought at j
first that it was

magazine so good did it ieel and j
look. On examination, however, j
we found it to be the magical I
story of the history and develop
ment of Fremont county pictured
in words and half tones, and
were we not living in
Idaho's growing counties we
would have said that it is an
exaggerated story—yea even
fairy story; but, from what we
see about us in Cassia, we can
believe every word that is told
w ithout half trying. This num-!

of people in less favored locali
