Reports Show Progress
Reports were called for and the two
district superintendents. Dr. W. T.
Dumm and Hr. David E. Kendall, re
ported for the general work in the
state. From these reports it was
learned that there had been a large
increase in every department of the
church work. Two new churches have
been built during the year, one at
Powell, at a cost of SG,GOO, and the j
other at Cody which will be dedicated
within a few weeks, at a cost of sl2’-
000. Two parsonages also have been
built. One of these was erected at
Worland at a cost of $3,500 and the
other at Hannah, valued at SISOO. Be
sides these new buildings many im
provements in properties have also
been made.
Other reports presented during the
session indicated a splendid advance
during the year. The membership of
the church in the state was increased
during the year by about 600, giv
ing the Methodist church in the state
a membership of 4,000. As might be
expected, all other departments of the
work of the Methodist church showed
like increase. One of the largest
showings was the advance in benevo
lent offerings, which amounted to
about 20 per cent, or SBOO in money.
In matters of growth the past year
has been the best in the history of the
Methodist church in Wyoming.
District Changes Made
Rev U. M. Creath was removed to
Pinebluff and a Rev. Jones from the
Southern Illinois conference will be
stationed at Basin.

fair but by Monday will be down to
hard work. The splendid school spir
it which was generated last year has
already been fanned to a Dame and

cessful year.”
In speaking of the changes which
have been made in the building. Supt,
Slade said:
‘ The room which was formerly used
for manual training and physics has
been refinished and is now used as a
grade room. Two large windows
have been added in the west end of
the room and with thenew varnish,
paint, calcimine and new desks for
the pupils and teacher this is one of
the lightest airiest and most comfor
table rooms in the building. This ad

By Nela Darling
I know a farmer living near a town in Illinois who refused
four hundred dollars an acre for his land. His is a good farm
and yet there is just as good productive soil on the Nile River.
Farms in that lacality are practically off the market. Why?
Because of their approximity to a real wide-a-wake thriving town.
That town has excellent schools, stores that are up to date and that
are giving service.
The people appreciate these stores they patronize them.
They are run by men who know how to buy right—sell right— and
advertise. They meet competition through correct methods.
If come customers wish cheap goods that are not quite up to the
standard, at low prices, these merchants furnish them just that
kind of merchandise. If they haven’t the article in stock they
send and get it. They tell the truth about their merchandise.
When they advertise a twenty percent reduction sale they put it on.
Everybody is treated with courtesy and all are made to feel that
their trade is appreciated. These stores are giving service.
That word service is a summary of the standard for measuring the
value of a man in a community.
The person who appreciates service will not buy groceries of
a mail order house and expect the local grocer to make a quick de
livery on telephone call of something overlooked in giving the re
gular order for the day’s dinner. The fair person will not ask
the merchant to charge item after item, until quite a bill has been
run up. if the ready money is being sent out of town to the mail
order house.
When you compare prices, do not overlook the cost and the
value of service.
Mr. Farmer, if you are a regular patron of these great cata
log houses, do not complain when you fail to find in your local
stores, some particular article you want. Do not ask for long
credit when your crops are short, and give the home dealer the
short end of your money when the crops are long.

It Stands for tk
Very Best in
Community Life
Jack Hancock, deputy game warden
in the Crandall creek district, had an
accident Sunday morning which was
almost miraculous in that it did not
prove fatal.
Mr. Hancock was trying out a high
powered Ross rifle and aimed at a
rock a few hundred feet away when
the mechanism of the gun failed to
lock the breech and an explosion oc
curred. Practically all of the upper
part of his face was blown away by
the impact.
He was alone at the ranch at tha
time of the accident and would have
died from the loss of blood had not
Ranger Frank Sparhawk appeared
on the scene. Dr. Charles Buvinger,
a Pittsburgh eye and ear specialist,
was camped near and was summoned.
The doctor had but a meagre kit of
<irst aid equipment but was able to
cleanse the wound and bandage the
head thoroly for the trip to Cody
sixty-five miles distant.
By the assistance of B. 11. Wilson
who met the party at the Allison
ranch with his car the injured man
reached the Gillam hospital before
j midnight Monday.
j A dozen pieces of broken bone weye
| removed from Mr. Hancock’s face by
Dr. C. L. Gillam with the assistance
of Dr. 1.. Howe and Dr. Buvinger. Tho
cheek bone was so broken up it had
to be removed as well as all of tho
framework of the orbit of the eye.
Dr. Gillam expressed the hope that
the sight of neither eye would be af
fected and as soon as.the healing
process is complete the face-tan be
rebuilt by the use of a silver frame
work to suport the eye.
Mr. Hancock is resting nicely. No
infection has developed and the man
will be able to be about by the last
of the week.
A bear was to have been the victim
of the hunting expedition which was
planned for Sunday morning. The
beast had been carrying on a series
of depredations and considerable
complaint had been made to Warden
Hancock. He had cleaned the gun
carefully the night before to test
the sights and the next morning de
