JUAUCOtXTV ' ; ' CITY STUDENTS IN COM - IN IK - COUNCIL HOLD THEIR During the past few days there has 'been going on at the Central School a very commendable project under the supervision of A. J. Crapo, instructor in manual training. Mr. Crapo's department now numbering 151 grade and High school boys undertook to lay 1883 square feet of cement walks around the Central school building which are very much needed. All of this work with the exception of the cost of the cement was done without charge to the district.- - Had all the work been, paid for It would have to several hundred dollars. Last Friday the grade students the teams and with the assistance of the teachers hauled 38 loads .of gravel and sand. The Higa school r' students put in the forms and laid the cement. Practically all of the work with the exception of hauling the gravel and cement has been done dur ing the. manual training period. Each year the school district rece ives from the State a certain sum of money for school purposes if a defin-itprogram is carried out in Agricul ture. Farm mechanics is now an im portant part of Agriculture and the boys taking a course in Agriculture must do a certain amount of cement work. The work done at the Central School this week afforded the boys an opportunity of receiving this im portant work the knowledge of which is easily transferred to the home and at the same time it enabled the dist rict to qualify for State funds, to say nothing of making the much needed - fur-nist- ed - - improvement. Therj is .another - element., that The snouiu not be lost sight of. schools are expected to train boys and girls to become useful citizens. There is no better way than to have them work in groups which calls for co operation, and most certainly this spirit was displayed by the students during the past week. The work just completed is one of the most important civic problems undertaken by the local school and every encouragement should be given to continue this type of school instru ction.

S. hospital in Salt Lake Lake Sunday afternoon, Joseph Mor gan, well known resident of this city and one of Its honored citizens answered the final summons alter several illness from weeks of a lingering blood poisoning and other complications. Joseph Morgan, was born in Nephi 51 years ago, the sou of the late Charles and Ann Morgan, and has lived here all his life. For a number of years he was engaged in the sheep business, but of late years he has devoted his time to farming. The deceased was always a quiet un assuming man and was highly respected by all who knew him. He leaves his wife, one son and three daugh ters to mourn his departure, also one ' brother and three sisters.

The outcome of this preliminary hear ing before- - J uxlge "John S. Cooper, resulted in Gerald Lowry of Spring-ville being bound over to await the action of the district court to answer the charge of adultry preferred a- gainst him by District Attorney Win. B. Higgins. Judge Cooper in remanding the de fendant to the higher court delivered a scathing lecture to Lowry, in language that cut to the very quick in bringing out the vileness of the offence as the court saw it. During the talk of the judge a hushed silence pervaded the courtroom that was al most dramatic. The defendant was represented by Judge Bramell of Salt Lake whose argument was principally confined to points of law as given in previous de cisions in similar cases. District Attorney Higgins, in be half of the State made a most eloq uent plea to the court for committal to the district court, laying bare the facts in the case as supported by what he termed unimpeachable testimony for the prosecution of witnesses which he said had never been denied by the defendant. Bonds in the sum of $1000 were imposed by the court, which if the defendant fails to furnish he will be compelled to remain In the custody of the sheriff until the next term of court which convenes in November.
