A most distressing accident occurred on the farm of Henry Oyler near this city Tuesday evening, as a result of which his little daughter is hovering between life and death at the Merrill hospital. Mr. Oyler was raking hay and had the little girl on his lap with him. She wanted to get down and he dM not notice where she went, but thought she had gone to the house to play with other children.. Mrs. Oyler was cutting the hay, driving the mower. Some time after the child left its father. As the mother was driving along all unconscious that the child was near, its piercing screams told that it was in the path of the cycle of the mower. Frantic, Mrs. Oyler stopped the team and rushed to the aid of the baby, the cycle had done frightful work, one little log being completely severed and one arm almost severed. With all possible haBte the child was rushed to the hospital where everything possible is being done to save its life. The physicians are hopeful that on ac-- i count of the age of the injured one, they may be able to graft, its hand to the arm, the main artery not being injured. The mother is prostrate over the accident. The parents have the sympathy of the community in this unfortunate calamity. three-year-ol- grief-stricke- d n UTAH HAS VERY DIVERSIFIED CLIMATE That Utah has a very wide range 01 climate is evident from a bulletin recently issued by . the Utah Experiment Statioa entitled,- ' Tho Climate of Utah" by Dr. P. L. West and Mr. N. E. Edlefsen. Woodruff in Rich county and St. George in Washington county are the record holders in tem' perature, the former with a winter record of 50 degrees below zero and the latter with a summer record of The largest an 116 degrees above. nual rainfall recorded is a little over 31 inches at the Forest Service experi ment station in Sanpete county, and the smallest, which is about 4 inches, - The ball game at the city park Sunday between the team of this city and the Brigham nine was the most disgraceful affair that has been witnessed here in many a moon, and the first game this season played by the local team at which there has been any friction whatever. W. W. Christensen, former principal of the Tremonton schools, and judge and referee for years at high school and district school tournaments, was selected as umpire. Mr. Christensen is known locally as a man of unquestioned integrity and his knowledge of sports is quailed by few men in the state. However, the game had barely started when the pitcher from Brigham, disregarding the rules of the game began taunting the umpire, and when one of Brigham 's base runners was called out' on a close play, other players joined in an insulting controversy with Mr. Christensen, who walked off the dia mond and refused to umpire further. This held up the game for a while when a man from Garland was selected in the hope that Brigham would be better satisfied. About the last half of the seventh inning a Brigham player ran into the Tremonton catcher at home base ana general melee was narrowly averted when Catcher Chester Green resented the roughtactics in a way that ineii cated he intended to take care of the situation. Brigham secured 6 runs to Tremon ton 's 2 , early in' the game, but begin ning in the seventh the local boys be gan to climb, and in the last half of the ninth the score had been changed to in favor of Brigham. A local player struck a safe hit but at rstrwhych prevented ras ealisd-,u- t home on the same the tallying of a hit and ended the same. The decision was palpably wrong and one of tne local team lost his head and started a rumpus with the umpire, but was quteit- ly quieted. The unpleasantness was generally re sretted by local citizens, but the trouble was started by the Brigham team, who displayed poor sportsmantactics. ship in their About 800 witnessed the eame, of of which one hundred were from Brigkid-lik- Tooele county.

The bulletin which is well written nnd illustrated contains much valu able information. There are numerous charts and diagrams showing the yearly precipitation, the amount of rainfall each month, the distribution or frequency of these rains, the date of the last killing frost in spring and the first killing frost in the fall, and the average length of the growing season for the leading towns in each county. A chart is also included showing the relative value of the four most important farm products of each county. Weather and the many terms associated with it are defined ana explained, also winds, rains, and frosts, as well as methods of forecasting weather. An interesting feature of the bulletin is a method which the authors have described of forecasting the temperature at a given place on a s given day. In actual tests temperu-turehave been determined within a mean departure of 4 degrees. The formula, which is workable only in connection with a table which is given, is simple. The records from which the conclusions given in this bulletin have been derived, have in a number of oases been kept for forty years. The publication should be especially valuable to farmers, manufacturers, transportation agencies, and business men generally, who are not familiar with' a section in which they are interested and whose business is tf such a nature, it is likely to be effected by the climate. played e game is scheduled AUGUST VACATION CHLENPflR mr Spendthrift OI0NT 5 AVE HIS WHO r I ( -- i tuy wax I I SAVING'S STAMPS (wtiuiaur' (, if AONEY The city council met in regular session Monday night and several important matters were considered.
