APPARENTLY THERE IS ALWAYS A STANDARD The first of the week a lady recent ly moving to Powell from Cody found her way into the Tribune office, and upon being asked if she was a sub scriber to Powell’s home paper, she replied that she was a reader of the Enterprise of Cody. She added how ever that sh e might try our paper for a year if we could guarantee her that it was as good a paper as the Enterprise. We assured the visitor that the paper was every bit as good as the Enterprise (with due apologies to Miss Lockhart), wh e reupon she took us at our word and subscribed for twelve months. It doesn’t puy to be too modest when publishing a newspaper, and one has to stretch the truth perhaps a little at times to keep the subscription list growing, r—Powell Tribune. Judge Metx held a session of the ■district court here for four days last week. Only minor matters were dis posed of, most of the hearings being in default cases.

Mr. Shipp's book is handsomely bound and contains over 100 pages ot poems and beautifully colored illus trations. Although Mr. Shipp is a successful attorney and took up the writing of poetry largely as a hobby, his work has attracted much more than local attention and has been favorably com mented on by well known authorities.

AND THE PARK COUNTY ENTERPRISE JOHN W. HAY’S LEAD INCREASES AS BELATEDRETRRNS COME IN ■ k h ■b -. I | * a t S 3 - ■ |W——W— OUT IN FRONT FOR GOVERNOR OF WYOMING As belated returns roll in the lead of John W. Hay for the Republican gubernatorial nomination increases On Tuesday evening Mr. Ha» stated that complete returns would give him a majority of approxim-tle y 700 votes over Governor Carey, which there is apparently no possible chance of over coming. Governor Carey has filed a petition asking for a recount of the votes in Sweetwater county, Mr Hay’s home STATE’S PUBLIC UTILITIES HAVE WON DISTINCTION ACCORDING TO OFFICIAL Wyoming has won distinction In the public utility field. The electric, gas and other utilny organizations of this state are leading in a nation wide movement to capture goal of public confidence and esteem, largely thru newspaper advertising. This is the word brought here by George E. Lewis of Denver, executive manager of the Ruckv Mountain Com mittee on Public Utility Information, who was recently a visitor in the city. Learning of the splendid achieve ments of Wyoming companies that are frankly taking their problems to their customers, scor s of utility com panies in other status are following suit, with the res lit that the entire nation soon w til hnva an understand ing of utility affa -s ne/er before pos sessed, Mr - . Lewis “The utility comucn.es of Wyoming and other states of ;he union will ex pend $1,000,000,000 a year for the next seven years for extensions and better ments —if the people will permit ”, said Mr. Lewis. “Every town and city in the nation will feel the impetus of such huge expenditures, expenditures necssitated because of long-deferred expansion. During the war period util ity organizations postponed these bet terments because to have them would have entailed material increases in rates. However as most everyone knows, utility service rates were held to the minimum, while prices tor ev erything else under the sun went sky larking. “When I say one billion dollars a year will be placed in circulation by the utilities ‘if the people will permit’ I mean just what I say. To expand this amount the utilities must borrow or sell their stocks, for there is hardly a company in the nation that is able to make extensions out of It’s earn ings, for in most instances earnings are restricted to about 8 per cent by state regulating commissions. “So it becomes necesary for the util ities to go to the financial centers to make loans. And right here is where the permission of the people comes in.' Those having money to lend will not put it Into a business that is con stantly being subjected to the jeopardy I county, which gave him a vote of five j to one. The Hay supporters, how ever, have no fear of the issue, as they 1 state positively that there was not a semblance of fraud in the Sweetwater 1 vote. 5 The race for secretary of state is ph ’ interesting one. L. Curtis Hinkle ‘ had been maintaining a small lead up I until Tuesday when Frank E. Lucas i of Buffalo took a lead of about 200 k votes. Mr. Lucas’ friends are claim » ing the nomination for him. of unfair demands or atacks by the people who depend upon it for ser vices—from the very people who would mostly benefit thru it’s ex penditures for wages, supplies, and other things that go to make up that billion dollars a year. “The utility companies are endeav ing to show the people that they have a self interest in their electric, tele phone, gas and street railway com panies: that 90 per cent of all the money taken in by such organizations goes right back to those who paid it in. Hence our systematic endeavor to enlighten the people by means of newspaper advertising. WOULD MAKE NEW ROAD TO MONTANA STATE LINE County Commissioner Welsh, of Big Horn county, and Commissioner Pease of Park county were in Frannie Sat urday morning consulting with the re clamation engineers in regard to mak ing a road on th e county line north of Frannie extending to the Montana State line.

A colony of protura, the most primi tive of all Insects, has recently been found in Florida, according to Dr. H. E. Ewing of the United States Na tional Museum, who is himself re sponsible for the identification of sev eral species of this mysterious creat ure about which scientist hold a wide range of opinion. Some consider that it is not really an insect but a sort of link between th e insect and earlier forms. The protura has no eyes and no feelers. However, he us e s the first pair of his six legs for reaching and grasping and the other four for walk ing. This menacing attitude of th e front legs is taken to mean that they prey on other forms but just what they feed on, their habits, how th e y produce, whether they lay eggs or not, are unknown —Greybull Standard.

Beck plans to introduce the old time “ride and tie” feature into a contest In the race two men would use each horse, one man riding ahead and ty ing the horse which would be re mounted by his partner. Each man would walk or run half the distance traveled. The distance traveled between changes would be entirely up to the contestants, consequently the matter of judgment as well as speed would enter into the race. EPISCOPAL CHURCH “There lives more faith in honest doubt than in all the creeds of Christ endom,” so spoke the eloquent Robert Ingersoll. Was Bob right? Is it true as was said by another thinker: “Doubt is but the birth pangs of a growing faith.” Some folks are born with a big question mark in their souls. Others accept all things with blind devotion. Both seek the quiet mind and the un troubled heart. Which one will find it first? , Hear the sermon Sunday, Septem ber 3rd.
