J2.00 Six months, Three months. 1.00 .73 ASSOCIATION From the movements of t lie slant-eyed heal lien in Honolulu it looks ns if Ja-pHU were looking for trouble. She will find it readily enough, find it won't be Chinese trouble, either. Editor Howard of the Salina I'ress is raising another crop of 'Carrots," it would feem. Thfe Press is unusually good reading now, though always above the ordinary of country newspapers Springville people are not do ing much blowing this summer, hut they quietly continue to build nice new brick residences A mum of the year's building operations next New Years will be very encouraging reading. The Beaver County Blade, by W. M. White, is u recent addition ad-dition to our exchange list The Blade starts out well and will be a right lively publication for Beaver if the citizens back it decently. Editor White is well posted in his profession. The Independent has received for publication a couple of letters from Elder D. P. Felt, who is now luboring among the crackers crack-ers in Northern Alabama, but they were too long for our purpose. pur-pose. Elder Felt was enjoying good health at last Recounts. The Puysou Globe wants the authorities of (hat city to run a nl owing machine on the sidewalks side-walks und harvest the weeds. That suggestion " would be in order for a few of Springvillu's thoroughfares, but those few are pretty well toward the outskirts of town. The opponents of electric lights in Springville will no doubt be excited when they leani tlml the City hall was lighted and decorated with electric elec-tric lights two nights last week during the engagement of the Daniels & Craven Electric and Specialty Co, A busines3-li"ke management of social and municipal a Hairs calls for the. use of ilectrie lights. They cost less I ban coal oil, and (but means money in the pockets of the masses. Besides Be-sides ii's another blow at the coal-oil trust to which we all pay tribute agaimt our will and the dictates of common sense. There are a number of Metho dist clergymen out looking for trouble, if the resurrectm oldead issues by the Logan conference means anything. It is well that n kindly Fate has .to arranged matters that the man who looks fir trouble is fclwavs able to find it. That pamphlet, ' The Gospel Concering Church and State, " by "Juab, n High Private ii Israel," is getting a great deal of denunciation from the press of Utah, but as yet the Deserel News is silent. The opinion of the church organ would be read with interest. That pamphlet seems to us to be a pretty thin affair, on further perusal. Fred Nelson, of the Tintic Minr, has become business manager ot The Argus at Salt Lake. We do not know whether wheth-er to congratulate The Argus or tocondole with Mr. Nelson. The brisic and breezy Argus hasn't been a money making proposition propo-sition for some time, if the frequent fre-quent , changes of management is any indication. Col. Warrum and Mr. Nelson will make a strong team, however. FOU A SISETU GRADE. A movement is on foot ben for the establishment of a Nineth grade in the City schools It appears that the Eighth grade is now overcrowded by nearly a third, which condition can but hinder lo a certain degree the j etl'oi U of teacher and pupils to attend to their du'ies. Many pupils on graduating from the present Eighth grade are compelled to go to either the Hungcrford or B. V. Academies, if they expect to continue in school and progress in their studies A number are now in attendance at Prove, andlhtl village is deriving benefit through the expenditure of their expense funds. It is claimed that by the estab lishinent of a Nineih gradual gradu-al lenet two years of acadnnic work could be done here, with vastly less expense, to the pupil, and with an increase of prestige for this city ss an educational center. Many students grudu ate from the Eighth grade at or before the age of fifieeii Cars, and to complete their education must leave the nst mints and comforts of a home for the somewhat some-what wild and indifferent exist-ance exist-ance of a foreign academy or boarding school, and often the results morally and physically are not for the best. The prediction is made that a Nineth grade will be an accomplished accom-plished fact by New Years, and that certainly is a consumation to le ardently hoped for. DOES I'UOIIIMTION I'KOUIlllT. The newspapers of the State are now commenting on there-cent there-cent attacks of The Independent on the mongrel prohibition that obtains in this town, and from it draw the conclusion that prohibition pro-hibition is ti failure. Wo fail lo see wherein this proposition holds good. The fact that a prohibitory enactment does not prevent the. sale and consumption of intoxicating intoxi-cating beverages does not necessarily neces-sarily imply that the principle is not good, and that it can inn be made a practical succe'' The statuies ugainst murdof, arson, adultery, etc., are not successful in preventing these crimes, but still no one would dare urge that they be repealed and the crimes they are directed against be licensed. The fault is in the administration administra-tion of these laws, and not in the prinriple they embody. That they cannot be enforced where, there is a determination to do so is the veriest bosh, and that claim is contradicted by evidence wherever public sentiment has exerted itself sufficiently to get a municipal government in harmony har-mony with itself. Springville has from time to time made illicit liquor dealers here hard to catch, and will do so again when public sentiment becomes aroused by some unusually flagrant act. A well known saying is to the effect that what is everybod'y business is nobody's business; this is exemplified in this city. The people here are overwhelmingly over-whelmingly temperance in sentiment, senti-ment, but have delegated their powers lo act in the matter to others, and are waiting lo see what they will do about it. We are all waiting; in the meantime, let us utter for Ihe ears of the officers of the city, this little inquiry." Gentlemen, Gentle-men, what are you going todo about it?" .1 SoniElt GOOD UEASOX. The writer has just received by a personal letter the pleasing information that the village of Whitehall, Wisconsin, near which he lived for maiiy years, is about to have an electric liehtine ulant.

People wonder why their nerves are so weak ; why they get tiretl so easily ; why they do not skiep naturally, why they have frequent headache, head-ache, indigestion and Nervous Dyspepsia. The explanation is simple. It Is found In that impure hlood feeding feed-ing the nerves ou refuse Instead of the elements ele-ments of strength and vigor.

The difference is accounted for by the fact that Wh tehall will not own the plant, power, and all, but wiM lease power from a flouring mill, i n I also that the relatively smaller number num-ber of lights will make each one cost more in proportion. The citizens there are determined to have this much needed modern and metropolitan convenience, and are moving vigorously toward to-ward securing it. It seems strange that in a city of the size of Springville there should be found anyone who did not desire to keep abreast of the times, to say nothing of getting in advance occasionally. It is n fact, nevertheless, that a certain tullow-tip element here will try this winter to hinder their more progressive neighbors, who really outnumber them three to one, from adopting the means of getting a nicer and more economic econ-omic way of lighting their houses. Some of these individuals individ-uals are more kinds of moss-backs moss-backs at once than can Le found this side of New Jersey. The opposition, we are certain, cer-tain, will make no difference in the end. A careful and systematic system-atic canvass of the city will reveal plenty enough citizens of the progressive fort t. do the work. Many w ho now lift their voices in a mournful croak over the fact that the world moves "WHlTuvuke to a realizing sense that things are different now from what they were ,'() years ago, and that the tallow dip has outlived its usefulness. Different conditions demand different modes of treatment, and thecon-ditions thecon-ditions at present prevailing demand electric lights. Its a matter of business and economics, pure and simple, und as such demands to be treated in an unsentimental fashion. The letter of II. Kooser to A. L. Brewer in which lie spoke of the reception re-ception of Utah fruit at his old home In Pennsylvania, is a recommendation that should give t-ucoiiniKcmcrit to Utah fruitgrowers, or rather some of Utah fruit growers, ir,i spur them up to (five their orchards better care than many are in the habit of doinn.

Most of the scrubby, hard and mongrel peaches and apples one sees about Springville ureduo to the fact that no attention is given Ihe trees. A peach or apple tree is expected to con-lend con-lend with grass, weeds and other enemies and at the same time bear fruit; a second's thought on the matter ought to convince any 'husbandman that a tree Cannot spend its strength in protecting itself from enemies and bear fruit too.

It is a tad time for divorces all over the state. Divorce ts not :u unmitigated evil.

Editor Dreiser of the Mercur Miner is the latest victim of the man who doesn't believe in the ficedom of the .res". A mining superintendent invited him to call, and when he called did the rest. There are a lot of people who imagine themselves ag grieved, and never s'op to ak it the very stringent libel law doe.-not doe.-not cover the case. Some dav a man with a fancied grievance will brace up to a meek and unassuming un-assuming little editor, ami for his pains will get pumped so full of lead that ?omo future prospecting pros-pecting tenderfoot will loca'e the graveyard a a mineral claim. And the jury will bring in a verdict of juslifiable hoinocide. Last week a certain citizen who is several linns old enough to know better, attempted lo coerce the editor hereof into acting act-ing contrary to his sense ''of duty as a newspaper man. The l.lufl didn't work, The Independent isshoitone subscriber, and the citizen in question can now con template himself in the position of the man who amputated his proboscis w ith the expectation of marring the harmonious proportions propor-tions of his own physiognomy.
