Rejoicing in Obion.
The Latter Day Saints in Al
bion are rejoicing over the com
pletion and dedication of their 1
new meeting house. This was'
begun about eight months ago
and was dedicated as a perman- '
ert home for the worshippers on
Sunday last by Pres. Wm. T. i
jack "it is a brick structure j
24x48 feet with a nice vestibule
the east and pulpit stand o?jp
on
the west. It was built by ton
tract bv Imperial Sash and Door "
Company at a cost of $2071.52,
The cost has been met by volun- i j
tarv contributions, the sum con- !
tributed aggregating $2075.48
leaving a balance of $3.96 in
treasury. An interesting fact in !
this connection is that people I
outside of the church in Albion
have contributed one-fifth of the
cost of the structure.
The people seem to appreciate
very highly their new church
home and their dedicating ser
vices on Sunday last were of a
most interesting and satisfactory
character,
After.the opening of the ser
vice Elder Jos. Y. Haight render
ed the very satisfactory report
of the financial committee, who
had in charge theconstruction of
the building,
Harper then made a short
dress commending the people on
their generiosity and their good
will, after which the dedicatory
prayer was offered by Pres.
T.Jack.
The choir and congregation
then sang, "Come Let Us Anew,
etc."
Addresses were then made by
Patriarch W. F. Brim, who lived |
in Albion for more than20years,
and President W. T, Harper who
was bishop of the Albion Ward
for many years.
turn was pronounced by High
Councilor L. W. Robbins who
was present from Burley.

children?"
Ii they can obtain
them at, their very doors, where

a certain extent under parent

sured that they will not send
them oft'to distant points.
There is every reason whv our

academy should be one of the
best in the land. There is
every
opportunity to establish here a
school that will prove a great
boon and a blessing to our .com
munities. We believe that these
things will be realized and that
the propitious closing of the
academy to day is but an
jimlex of a far more prosperous
future.

Model Houses.
This week witnesses the com
pletion of two neat businesss
houses in Oakley which in a way
are models of their kind. They
are convenient, suited to con
i ditions and up-to-date. We refer
i to the jewelry store of R. I. Mills
j and the general merchandise
j
store of Nelson and Worthing
ton, Mr Mills is already oc
cupying his, and the other
parties will locate their stock of
goods about may 15. In the
latter store we note very fancy
and convertible shelving, very
dainty couuters with heavy
j plate glass tops; and also sky
lights in the rear of the building
which make it quite as light and
pleasant as the front. These

Prof. Davidson Gives an Inter- 1
estiiig Description.
How An Isrlhquak Feels
i
Professor George Davidson of
the University of California,
formerly connected with the
United States Geodetic survey,
says of the recent earthquake.
"The earthquake came from
the north to south and the
only description I am able to
give of its effect to me is that it
seamed like a terrier shaking a
rat. I was in bed, but was
awakened at the first shock. I
began to count the seconds as I
went toward the table where my
watch was, being able through
much practice to closely approx
imate the time in that manner,
The shock came at 5:12 o'clock.
The first 60 seconds were the
most severe. From that time on
it decreased gradually for about
30 seconds. There was then the
slightest perceptible lull then the
shock continued for 60 seconds
longer, being slighter in degree
in this minute and a half. There
were two very slight shocks
which I did not record at 5:17
and 5:27. At 6:05 p. m. there!
was a sharp shock of several
seconds.
:
"Regarding the cause 1 main
tain, as I always have, that it is
the earth cooling on the inside.
The cooling brings about con
traction which is bound to cre
ate a readjustment of the earth's
surface.
"1 have heard talk of the erup
of Vesuvius having connection
with this disaster, but that is
rank nonsense. My seismograph
was twisted out of shape by the
shock so that I have no record
from that.
"As to tellin
whether there
will be a repetition of the earth
quake I can no more predict that,
than I could have predicted the
one of todayo

can have a No. I Brass Band if
they want it. We have the in
instruments, and the talent to
blow them. All that is needed is
a little encouragment. Let us
•see to it that a very great deal
of encouragement is mustered,
that we may have an organiza
tion here that will be second to
none in the state, apropas the
advantage of a town having a
(band we copy the following
from a valued exchange.
A band serves to keep the peo
pie of a town or village more
closely united and yet interested
in the affairs outside and it tends
to make them more liberal mind
ed and considerate af others; at
the same time it develops their
independence and self-reliance
It is said that music is not only
a great civilizer, but that is good
and grand m man and frees him
from the thraldom of selfishness.
If it never accomplished any
thing else this would be a high
recommendation to its cultiva
tion.
Briefly stated a band help a
town or village.
First—In bringing people to
the place and keeping them.
Second—In making the inhabi
tants more patriotic, loyal and
progressive.
Third—In teaching the children
to love their parents, their homes
and their country.
Fourth—In assisting the mer
chants in business and prevent ing
the money going out of the
town.
Fifth—In making the people
more happy and contented.
Sixth—In urging old and
young toward seek mg something
higher than the ordinary and
instilling in them a love for the
artistic in music as well as in
everything else.

OESOSnPTIOHt Made in all sizes. It is lively and easy riding, very durable and lined inside
with a special quality of rubber, which never becomes porous and which closes up small punctures
without allowing the air to escape. We have hundreds of letters from satisfied customers stating
that their tires have only been pumped up once or twice in a whole season. They weigh no more than
an ordinary tire, the puncture resisting qualitie,: being' given by several layers of thin, specially
prepared fabric or. the tread. That ''Holding Back" sensi.lion commonly felt when riding on asplialt
or soft roads is overcome by the patent "Casket Weave" tread which prevents all air from being
squeezed out between the tire and the road thus overcoming all suction. The regular price of the»
tires is $8.50 per pair, but for advertising purpos. ; we are making a special factory price to ti e rider
of only |4.bo per pair. All orders snipped same day letter is received. We ship CO.D. on approval.
