BEAR EIVER VALLEY LEAOE VOLUME 4 TREMONTON. UTAH THURSDAY. DECEMBER Plans Completed for TWO DAYS SPENT Annual Poultry Show IN CELEBRATION The Box Elder county poultry day CLUB LUNCHEON HELD THURSDAY plans are completed for the annual the merchants committee of the chamber of commerce of Brigham City and representative dairy and representative dairy and poultry men of the county announce, and a two days' celebration, December 14 and Officers of Club Know Their Onions When It Comes to Celebrating 'Yv k-ca- 13, will be held. The annual Commercial club luncheon and dance held last Thursday night in the L. D. S. banquet room recreation hall was a real affair. Something over 115 partook of the luncheon prepared by ul Chef Otto iSchenkel and when it comes to putting up a luncheon Otto just hasn't a peer. Much merriment and real social conflab was indulged in, all seeming to have a real story or "gossip" about some guy that just couldn't keep his little finger from poking into the cream jar or sugar bowl. Anyhow, everyone wore a smile and did justice to the eats. Then all turned their footsteps to the ball room, some of them acting like they were a little "over-eatewhen coming up the stairs, but when the music by Bud Workman and his crew started there was none but what was able to do the light fantastic. The evening was a real pleasant one from all angles and many were loath to leave. The only fault that one could find with such occasions is that they are not held often enough. n" The poultry show wil lopen Friday 8 a. m. The judging of stock will cmomence at 2 p. m. by Professor Byron Alder of the Utah Agricultural college. The show will close at 8 p. m., so that poultrymen may be privileged to attend the high school opera the same evening. Saturday the show will open at 8 a. m. and close at 9 p. m. During the second day an inspection of the exhibits will be made under the direction of an expert from the U. A. C. At 2 p. m. a public meeting will be held at the commercial club rooms, at which a number of prominent poultrymen will discuss problems. At this meetnig the Utah hatchery of Brigham City will make its awards to the vocational students of the Box Elder High school. The two days' celebration will conclude with a poultry dance at the Bluebird dancing hall. Special features are being arranged for the ball. at STORE WINDOWS OF TREMONTON ARE ATTRACTIVE Bothwell Ward Gets Holiday Merchandise Is New Young Bishopric Being Displayed in Beautiful Windows The stake presidency met with the Latter-da- y Saints of the Bothwell ward last Sunday for the purpose of the ward bishopric. .'".organizing Tm The meeting was well attended and good spirit prevailed. After releasing the old bishopric, which consisted of Moses P. Jorgen-sebishop, Rasmus Anderson, first counselor, and J. J. Newman, second counselor, the new bishopric was sustained as follows: D. Milton Marble, bishop, with Walalce Anderson, first counselor, and Earl Firth as second counselor. The retiring bishopric has served the people of the Bothwell ward faithfully for many years and to the best of their ability, and have arnedvthe love and respect of the people with whom they have labored. The new bishopric is composed of young and vigorous men, who have lots of energy to put into their new calling. These men are of a high type and the people of Bothwell ward will look to them with confidence for great things to be accomplished in the ward. hon-"orab- ly n, Dinner Served at M. E. Church Well Attended The chicken dinner served by the Ladies Aid of the M. E. church last Friday night was well patronized, and as is the usual case, Bible measure (pressed down and running over) was given , put up and served in Queen's style. With others, most all of the a business men and wives of the town y 0 ep were there as per usual, and these v tar' 'entlemen, along with the editor, eem to have a failing of hunting up these chicken dinners, then see to it that everything set before them is properly taken care of. Besides being a very fine dinner, these good people have a faculty of making one feel at home. A good meal and pleasant social contact are two of the most pleasant things in life. We are ready for the next one. . Ward Primary to Give a Christmas Program The following Christmas program will be given Friday, Dec. 14, at 7 p. m., in the L. D. S. Recreation hall by the Primary association: Once again the season of the year has come when everyone is filled with the desire to give pesents and good cheer. And once again one is reminded of the high class merchants of all lines that are found in and their efforts to supply the wants of every Christmas shopper. It is a distinct pleasure to window shop as well as shop inside, and as one goes from one end of the town to the other he is impressed with the care and skill that has made the windows of the business houses beautiful and attractive. It is little wonder that all through the week, and especially Saturday nights, cars line each side of the streets for blocks while the people who have come from all parts of Bear River valley shop in the stores that are filled with goods as fine and as fair in price as can be found anywhere. The merchants of Tremonton invite you to their places of business whether you buy or not, for they want you to come and enjoy the spirit of the season and any other pleasures you may find in the visit to their stores. Tre-mont- 4 National Guard Unit Available for Valley It was learned at a short meeting in Bear River City last Saturday from Major Ruel Eskelson that a unit of the National Guard is available for the north end of the county if sufficient men and officers can be mustered. It will require 25 enlisted men for a period of three years, and two commissioned officers, a first and a second lieutenant. The officers and men will draw pay for the time spent in drilling. A post would be a splendid thing for the community in many respects, and the drill and training would be It is very beneficial to the men. hoped that everyone interested will get in and work for the establishment of the post here. Meeting to Discuss Growing of Grapes District - Sacred Cantata Will Be Given On Dec. 20 The Bear River stake choir, under the direction of Prof. Geo. O. Nye, will present on Thursday, Dec. 20, the cantata "Peace On Earth." A great deal of time has been spent by this organization in preparing this beautiful cantata and it is hoped that Saints of Bear River the Latter-da- y stake will take this opportunity of expressing their appreciation for the years of service Prof. Nye and the choir has rendered. At 8 p. m., at stake tabernacle ni Garland. Prices 10 and 25 cents. Entertainment Wednesday, Dec. 10. the district school' of Tremonton will present an entertainment in the new L. D. S. recreation hall. Each year the school aims to put on nlays and entertainments by the pupils, which not only affords the parents and patrons real amusement of high class, but these programs also form a part of the education of the boys and girls. This entertainment promises to be a real treat to all who attend. The admission is 25 cents, curtain at 7:30 p. m. B. R. H. S. Graduates YOUNG HUSBAND Star in College Play GARLAND VISITED Emerson Abbott of Tremonton and Allan Cannon of Fielding, both students at the Utah Agricultural college at Logan, had leading roles in the college play, "The Mollusc," presented at the Capitol theatre in Logan last week. Mr. Abbott, who is president of the sophomore class, carried the role of Tom, the clever brother who devises means of making a strong character d out of his sister, Mrs. Baxter. Emerson is registered in the school of arts and science and is a member of the Sigma Chi social fraternity. His work as an actor was much enjoyed by both faculty and students, as was that of Mr. Cannon, senior honor student, who portrayed Mr. Baxter, the kindly but henpecked husband. He is enrolled in the school of arts and science with a major in English, minors in French and history, and special work in education. In activities Mr. Cannon is editor of the college literary publication, "The Scribble," .and a member of Alpha Delta Epsilon social fraternity. Both these young men are in the cast which has been selected to present "The Mollusc", in Pocatello and Twin Falls, Idaho, this week. BY HIGHWAYMEN Large Crowds From All Thieves Make Big Haul From Rear Windows Over County Enjoy in Two Cities Two Days' Doings Last Thursday and Friday the Some time between midnight and peoonce more proved daylight Saturday morning thieves themselves royal entertainers for on broke into the Gephart company store these two days and evenings a vari- in this city and the Coombs & Pers-so- n weak-wille- ple of Deweyville store at Garland. That the burglars were expert judges of high class merchandise was evidenced by the fact that the moderately priced articles were not touched. The exact amount of goods carried off is not known, but a check by the officials of the Gephart store showed that no less than 107 silk dresses, 17 men's suits, 26 silk scarfs, 2 dozen silk ties, 150 pairs silk hose, 3 deather coats, 5 ladies' coats, 6 suit cases, and several pairs of fine wool blankets ranging from $9.00 to $19.50 were taken. We are informed that their success at Garland was limited to a few mens' suits. These they obtained by breaking the glass out of the window and using a long stick with a hook on it to fish the suits up through the broken window. They were unable to get inside this store, after unsuccessful attempts to drill a hole through the brick wall and break the bars from the windows. By the blood found on the window of the Garland store, it is possible that they cut themselves badly, and it is hoped some finger prints can be found to identify the thieves. It is believed that they have stores at some large center where these goods are taken and all marks of identification removed, which makes their capture a much bigger problem. Profits in present day merchandising do not allow for such losses and it is sincerely hoped that a recovery of the stolen goods can be made and the robbers brought to justice. ety of program and entertainment that drew crowds from all over the county was put over with dispatch and to the enjoyment of all who were present. The affair not only proved to be a successful one from a financial standpoint, but was also a fine social success, and the people of that community should be commended for the spirit of progress and thrift they display and for being the splendid neighbors tky are. The Brigham City chamber of commerce attened in a body Thursday evening and the Tremonton club was in attendance Friday night. A fine feeling of fellowship prevailed and all reported having a splendid time. Highly Esteemed Lady Goes to Her Reward Tuesday morning at the Valley or "Grandma"' hospital, Amanda, she known was as in TremonMorris, ton, passed away after a brief illness. Mrs. Morris came to Tremonton in 1911 and has resided here since that time. During her residence here she has endeared herself to the people who have known her by her pleasing personality and fine womanly character. She was a woman of an independent nature, never complaining and ever mindful of the welfare of others. During the past eight years she has had her granddaughter, Lillian Morris, with her, who has been a comfort and a help to her. She was also the grandmother of Ray Morris, who died in 1918 of the flu, and who had endeared himself to the people of Tremonton. Mrs. Morris was born in Kansas in 1851, and was 77 years of age. She was married to Levi Morris in 1869, he having passed away in 1893. She is survived by the following children: Mrs. E. M. Wyatt, Denver, Colo.; Mrs. Frank Hull, Abingdon, 111.; Mrs. Bud Jennings, Avon, 111.; Harry E. Morris, Boulder, Colo., and Mrs. Walter E. Wyatt of Tremonton, besides a number of grandchildren. Funeral services will be held Friday, Dec. 15, at the M. E. church, with Rev. Alvin R. Dickson officiating. DAY'S SHIPMENT INCLUDES FOUR CARS OF FREIGHT GRADING PLANT RECEIPTS The first week's operations of the Utah Poultry Producers 'association receiving station have been highly gratifying to the officers. During the week the station has required the services of three women and a man to take care of the eggs and dressed poultry that have come in. Something like 20d cases of eggs and 12,000 pounds of dressed turkeys have been received, this representing $7,560 to the producers, and they find it most pleasant to have their eggs gathered and taken quickly to a grading plant where they are graded and scientifically stored the moment they are received, thus insuring the highest e-grading for the producer, as well as the best the market can produce for the consumer. Mr. Garr, manager of the station, states that each day the past week saw an .increase in the amount of eggs brought in, and he looks forth with confidence to the rapid expansion and growth of the poultry industry in the Bear River valley. possibl- ed. As it was Mr. Ellenson escaped with a few painful burns and we are glad to say he will suffer no ill effects from the experience. Box Elder High Will Present Annual Opera SUGAR COMPANY The Box Elder High cshool will present their annual opera, "The Bells of Capistrano." next Monday, Dec. 17, at the Bear River High school. This is the first time that the two schools have been able to exchange operas. We hope we can get the patronage of TO MAKE FINAL JEET PAYMENT Farm and Factory Nearly Half Million In last week's issue of The Leader we printed the amount in dollars and cents the Oregon Short Line paid in taxes and the manner in which it is Beet growers of the Bear River valley will be paid on December 15 for beets delivered in November, the sum of $130,000. The amount paid distributed. That the railroads are a vital part of our commercial and industrial activities is not only evidenced by the above, but also by the service they render. During 'one day last week T. A. Supan, local agent for the Oregon Short line1, billed out a carload of horses, a car of canned vegetables, a car of apples and a car of honey. We are not only glad that the railroads are here to handle the commodities we want moved from one point to another, but it is gratifying to all to note the business activity of this and surrounding communities. A community is judged by its schools, its churches, its places of business and by the people, of course, who go to make up the community, and their attitude toward their chosen profession or occupation. One needs only to look around at the activity hereabouts and he is convinced that a steady, healthy progress in every line of activity is being ten-da- Funeral services were held last Saturday in the L. D. S. chapel over the remains of Ira O. Fridal, who died Tuesday, Dec. 4, after a brief illness. The services were under the direction of Bishop James Walton and were opened by a number by the ward choir under' the leadership of Alfred N. Robbins. The invocation was offered by Elias Anderson. The second number was a duet, "The Morning Breaks, the Shadows Flee," by A. L. Cook and Lavon Stokes, , This was followed by talks by O. L. Brough and Edward Newton, neighbors and long time friends of the deceased and his family. They spoke words of praise for the Fridal family and paid tribute to the life of their departed neighbor and friend. Mrs. Callie L. Koford of Brigham rendered the solo, '" Twill Not Be . Long." t, j Ezra Jensen of Garland was the next speaker. Mr. Jensen was in uniform and came to pay his tribute to his dead comrade and for his fellow comrades in uniform who were there in numbers. This he did fittingly and feelingly in comparing the services of the deceased as' a soldier with the duty 'and services demanded of one in civil life, In which both instances, he said, the deceased had served well and faithfully and called upon his comrades to "carry on." Mrs. Dora Brough sang the solo, "My Faith in Thee." Cris Simmonson of Brigham City, a life time friend of the deceaseds wife and her family, then spoke of his friendship and respect for them and of their hope of eternal life. Frank Merrell, uncle of the wife of the deceased, spoke mipressively of the principles of the restored gospel of Christ, of his hope and faith in the resurrection and the reunion of loved ones, and gave his testimony of Provithe great plan of an dence who worketh all things well. Mrs. Koford sang a solo, "There Is No Night There.',' Bishop Walton was the concluding speaker, saying appreciative of the conspicuous, services of the Fridf.1 anoV Merrell families and that much solace should.-- , come from - the presence of the un usually large attendance at the services. Benediction was by Stake Clerk John J. Shumway of Gariar,d. A beautiful and impress' ve part of the services was the military escort under the command of Major Ruel Eskelson, who commands the National . Guard units of Ogden and Brigham. The salute was fired and taps sounded as Comrade Fridal 's remains were gently and solemnly returned to Mother Earth. It was necessary to use the over- flow room to care for the hundreds of; people who came to pay their respects to the departed and his loved ones. Burial was in the Bear River City cemetery, where the grave was dedicated by David Rees. Shortly after returning from the funeral a fine baby girl was born to Mrs. Fridal. No ill effects resulted from the sad ordeal of her great loss and mother and babe are doing well. All-Wi- se he-w- nk Relief Society to Big Bazaar and Dance to the growers last month was $280,-00Aside from this amount the Garland factory employs about 200 men with an average wage of $5.00 per day. The run this year required 45 days, making a total of $45,000 paid for salary of employes, or a o grand total that the Sugar company has distributed to the growers and emploves of this district this year $455,000.00. The beet run this year, under the tble direction of Superintendent has scooped up the trophy for the greatest percentage of sugar content extraction and possibly the cup on tonnage run. We were unable to learn the exact details of this at this time. That the above amount to be paid this month will be received as real Ch Mimas cheer is not doubted, and is to be hoped that sufficient tariff vill be placed on sugar to allow the manufacturers to pay what the growers should have and also show a profit to themselves in order that this great industry may survive. 0. d.
