VOLUME 9.

NUMBER 31
The Spirit of the Crowd.
' We recommend to parents that j
have boys aged 13 to 18, that
they keep them from joining the
crowd. A crowd is like a mob.
It is ruled by caprice and folly,
and frequently does things that
no single individual if left tohim
self, would ever think of doing;
An instances to the point:—
On Sunday evening last, a large
crowd—some 15 or 20 boys of
the above mentioned age congre
gated after the evening services
in front of the Oakley Pharmacy
and thus lent themselves to any
suggestion that His Satanic Ma
jesty had to offer. They were not
held long in waiting for when a
couple ot the Academy teachers
passed by shortly afterward on
their way to make
crowd fell in, as if moved by some
great impulse and followed them
down the street, with their
taunts and jests and ribalry.
When the teachers stopped at
the friends' home, the crowd
stopped too, and continued their
deviltry. The next move was
to thrust open the door of a
peaceable citizen's home and to
throw into the room a four foot
cedar post—just for amusement.
Fortunately this sport did not
result disastrously, though it
must be confessed that there was
more of good luck than conduct
in the affair as a another sat in
the middle of the room with her
infant in her arms and whose head
was barely missed by the missile.
An investigation of the affair
has beenmade during the week
and a number of the participants
have expressed sorrow for their
conduct, but do not know why
they did it.-Others-whether they
live in Oakley or other settlements
-will perhaps render explanation
before many days, or answer to
the law, as the injured partv
•does not propose to suffer such
treatment at the hands of hood
lums without correction.
call, the

But, the point is: "Deviltry
and hoodlumism are developed
in the crowd thatgathers on the
streets."
The very old Nick
prompts such gatherings and a
few recent experiences in Oakley
somewhat similar to the
one
mentioned above, plainly
deuce the fact that something
ought to be done.

rectly home. Keep them, we sav
from the low, vulgar, crowd that
loaf upon the streets—for the
spirit of such gatherings is injur- j
ious and leads to trouble.
!
A Central School.
People of Oaklev are gradually j
awakening to the fact that they
must have a central school. The
j
i
;
parents meeting in No, 6 last
Friday helped to open their eyes. !
Quite a number have
expressed |
themselves this week as being!
ashamed of the conditions that 1
maintain in the "school home" !
of their children. For the bene-1
j
fit of those, who wish to agitate
this question—we will freely ten

Write out your ideas and let the |
people know how you feel
this proposition. It needs agita
tion. It needs talking about, so
that when the time comes to do- i

or bond and build we shall know
where we are at and shall be

tirely ready for the proposition.
We take pleasure in quoting
this week from a man that means
business—Mr. Thos. J. Dayley:—
I donated One Hundred Dollars
to the Cassia Stake Academy
j and vras as good an invest
me °t I ever made,
I will donate One Hundred
Dollars for a cen tral school — Yes,
I will meet the donation of anv
other man and 1 will meet
share of a tax besides.
Let us hear from others.

And work amid fruit laden trees;

She wants a rope o, r pearls;
She wants a poodle on a string,

She wants a bonnet twice

She wants an Easter hut;
She wants to read her title clear
Unto a stylish flat:
She wants a four-seated moter car,

She wants a trip to Europe, or

She wants a diamond pin;
She wants a carriage of her
To go out calling in;
She wants the earth, the Milky Way,
And half the stars above,
And yet you have the nerve to say
That all she wuuts is love.
