At a meeting of the Stake Presidency, the Bishopric f the various wards, and the Stake and local officers of the M. I. A. Monday evening, plans were laid that will, make this event one long to be remembered in this stake. The time was decided upon at this meeting for holding the outing will be July 23rd, 24th, and 25th. Those who contemplate camping behind Mt. Nebo for this occasion are asked to make an effort to get there on Saturday evening, as it is especially desired that the least amount of travel as possible be had during Sunday. The Sunday afternoon services at the camp will be under the direction of the Stake Presidency. In the evening the Stake and local officers of the M. I. A. will conduct a program around a large bonfire. Monday, the 24th, there will be sports of every kind, with a dance in the evening. A detailed list of the events will be given in next week's issue. The Stake Board of the M. I. A. visited Levan Tuesday evening and the arrangements were made for scouts of that ward to attend the outing in their new uniforms, which they have now ordered. The Levan Band will also be on hand according to the word of Stake Supt. T. H. Burton, which will add considerable to the enjoyment of the outing. GOV. NEPHI BOY Uinta Mountains, apropos of the recent visit of Governor Chas. R. Maboy, to that region. It appears from the s reporter story given to a that the Governor and his party were out on a fishing trip on this parti cular morning, and not being very well acquainted with the streams that are restricted from the use of fisher men, got over the line and were soon enjoying the sport of their Uvea in prohibitive waters. Their enjoyment was short lived however for the wat chful eye of young Dick Ostler, of this city, who has recently been ap pointed a forest ranger in that region caught sight of the party as he was riding the range, and Gov. Mab ey was told that he must consider himself under arrest. The astonish ed Governor turned to young Ostler, A good story comes from the Times-New- and asked him If he did not know who he was. Ostler replied in the negative. So Gov. Mabey informed m that he was the Governor of the 'State of Utah. That does not make any difference, Ranger Ostler is said to have replied, so things began to take on a different aspect. The nearest telephone was sought and some hurry up calls and explan ations were made to the headquarters of the forest service, and the release from custody of the forent ranger was accomplished. After matters had been cleared up the Governor and party was taken to ranger Ostler's cabin where his young bride entertained the party to a first class dinner.

V (AN EDITORIAL) During the past twenty years the people of Nephl have spent many thousands of dollars in various projects with the objact in view of procuring an additional supply of water for irrigation purposes Those projects, had for the lands adjacent to this city and valley. they been succesful would have meant the outlay of perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars, or even millions to have procured the This money would have been supply of wr.ter that was needed. caeerfully spent if the increased supply promised by these projects could have been secured, because every wide awake and intelligent, citizen of this valley knows, that if more water is not obtained we have reached the limit of our expansion in an agricultural sense, and must remain content at where we are now. With the failure to obtain water from outside sources it becomes the duty of every forward looking citizen of Nephi and Juab Valley, to take good care of the supply we now have and use our Lest efforts to develop and enlarge our present supply. How can this be done, is the first question that naturally confronts the Individual who approaches this question of increased water supply we are speaking now of our canyon stream, which is under the control of the Nephi Irrigation Company. We are going to answer to this question in the following words, "Bring to the mouth of the canyon all the water that comes to the surface on our watershed." Of course this could not be literally done, but what is meant by this statement is to at least conserve all the water we have, and find out definitely by accurate measurments whether the same amount of water that rises bck of the mountain is delivered to the canals near the mouth of the canyon. There are niftny well informed men in this city who are under the impression that a great deal of our irrigation water is sinking in the gravel formation below the mouth of Pole Canyon and is lost to the water owners as far as its use on their fields are concerned This question should be proven either untrue or otherwise. With a product so valuable, and so essential to the welfare of this city as our present irrigation water supply, there should be no guess work or theory as to whether we are getting all the water we are entitled to, but a demonstated fact, scientifically obtained. This paper would like to suggest that the leading business men of this city, together with the largest water owners, with the Water Board and find out definitely, even if one of the best engineers in the country have to be employed, whether all the water we are entitled to is coming out of the mouth of the canyon. This canyon stream is the most valuable asset this city has. It is the biggest buinees enterprise we have. At its present market value of about $200.00 per share it represents an investment of well over a half million dollars. It is the life's blood of this comAny depreciation In its usefullness is a direct loss to the munity. It is therefore of vital people of this city indollars and cents. importance to every citizen of this community that the stream be maintained at its maximum flow. This can only be accomplished by an intelligent application of all the known methods of water conservation and development. SUNDAY AFTERNOON MABEY PINCHED BY FUNERAL SERVICES OF OUR WATER SUPPLY THE BIG PROBLEM annual "Wheat County's Day" has now passed into history. It was a big success from every standpoint and makes the supremacy of this valley as the greatest wheat growing section of Utah stand out more prominent than ever. Many well known citizens from over the State were present at the experiment station at 1 p. m. among whom was noted the following. Dr. F. S. Harris president of the B. Y. U. Prof. P. V. Cardon, editor of the Utah Farmer, Prof. Lowry Nelson of the B. Y. U., Prof. Wm. Peterson Director of Extension work at the A. C. U., Prof. Hogensen and Prof. Stewart of the Logan College. Joe Welch Utah county Agent, and Jos Skinner of Spanish Fork. That the Nepht experiment station has the best record of any station in the country was freely made by the peakers who addressed the assemb led crowds. That the Ridge is the best and most secure section of country in the west to produce dry wheat was admitted by all. That in spite of the unusual season this year, and the unfavorable growing conditions, the ridge is still the best bet anyplace or anywhere. The above were the gist of the re marks made, and t'.iose who attended the meeting at the experiment station went away well repaid for the time spent there. In the evening under the direction of Supt, Bracken, and a committee of ladies, a canyon party was given on the Jenkins Flat, at which about 300 were present. Sandwiches and cold root beer was served, and the evening was well spent around a where a number of large bon-fir- e good stories were told by the visitors Dr. T. D.
