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,

Judge Metx held a session of the

As belated returns roll in the lead

On Tuesday evening Mr. Ha» stated
that complete returns would give him

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
“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

j to one. The Hay supporters, how
ever, have no fear of the issue, as they

semblance of fraud in the Sweetwater

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.

A colony of protura, the most primi

found in Florida, according to Dr.
H. E. Ewing of the United States Na

sponsible for the identification of sev

range of opinion. Some consider that
it is not really an insect but a sort of
link between th e insect and earlier
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

front legs is taken to mean that they

they feed on, their habits, how th e y

not, are unknown —Greybull Standard.

Col. Geo. T. Beck has proposed a
novelty race for the Park County fair
to be held on October 6 and 7 which
he believes will be a very interesting
feature. Col. 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
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.
“There lives more faith in honest
doubt than in all the creeds of Christ

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? ,
