if there are no inspiring strains

It is perhaps in order to sug

that from ^ur point of view it

PERRINE AND THE CAPITALISTS
TURN THEIR ETES THIS WAT.
The following extract taken trom the Deseret News,
gives the forecast of some of the good things that are com
ing our way :
"W, T. Jack has taken a ninety-day option on eight
marble and onyx claims, owned by John Fairchild and
Gada Roberts, east ot Basin settlement, The consideration
was $10,000. Mr. Jack is securing this property for a syn
dicate with a view to establishing extensive marble and
onyx works, and other manufactories. Mr Herman L.
Hartenstein of Constantine, Michigan, is expected out early
in June to make selection of quarries and sites for some
large factories, which, it is thought, will either be located
in Basin or Willow Creek, 14 miles north of Oakley. The
Basin properties contain 160 acres of as line quality and
large variety of colored marble and onyx as can be found in
the west.
as
Mr. I. B. Perrine of Blue Lakes, who has done so much
for the development of southern Idaho, is the "moving
cause" in this new enterprise."
That the factories mentioned above will be built is be
yond the question of a doubt- That these factories will
require rail facilities for transportation is evident; that the
road-electric or dummy, will be built is practically settled :
That our part of the county is on the very verge of
of great prosperity is known by a few, and will soon be
realized by all. Whoop it up, whoop it up, whoop it up:

DESCRIPTION3 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
ordinary tire, the puncture resisting qualities being given by several layers of thin, specially
prepared fabric on the tread. That ''Holding Back" sensation commonly felt when riding on asphalt
or soft roads is overcome by the patent "Basket Weave" tread which prevents all air from being
squeezed out between the tire and the road thus overcoming all suction. The regular price of these
tires is $ 8.50 per pair, but for advertising purposes we are making a special factory price to the rider
of only $4 80 per pair. All orders shipped same day letter is received. We ship C.O.D. on approval,
pay a cent until you have examined and found them strictly as represented,
llow a cash discount of 5 per cent (thereby making the price S4.55 per pair) if you send
FULL CASH WITH ORDER and enclose this advertisement. We will also send one nickel
plated brass hand pump and two Sampson metal puncture closers on full paid orders (these metal
puncture closers to be used in case of intentional knife cuts or heavy gashes). Tires to be returned
at OUR expense if for any reason they are not satisfactory on examination.
■ perfectly reliable and money sent to us is as safe as in a bank. Ask your Postmaster
Banker, Express or Freight Agent or the Editor of this paper about us. If you order a pair
these tires, you will find that they will ride easier, run faster, wear better, last longer and look
finer than any tire you have ever used or seen at any price. We know that you will be so well pleased
that when you want a bicycle you will give us your order. We want you to send
order at once, hence this remarkable tire offer.
