Work on the Grantsville bridge piers is progressing rapidly.
Laying the stone for the west pier started this morning and will be pushed right

A good position can be had by ambitious young men and ladies in
the field of “wireless” or railway telegraphy. Since the 8-hour law became
effective, and since wireless companies are establishing stations throughout the

Jesse Mason, superintendent of Yellow Creek Oil Co. of Ayers,

After it is over, how many of us acted upon the suggestions,
meeting together and planning the building of a greater community?
A greater community can be achieved by us, if we work together
in the hope that future generations will enjoy this town and county, and if we
are determined to crown our efforts with success. We want our community to be a
thriving, progressive and glorious place in which to live, and we owe as much to
those who have gone before us and lived here.
It must be remembered that we have accepted not only what former
citizens of our community have left us, but all the gifts of all the men and
women who have ever lived, and this is a considerable inheritance--for which we
have paid nothing.
All of this inheritance came to us in our home community, and it
is to our home community that we owe a debt, as every man and woman owes his
hometown something. We think that every citizen should accept in his heart this
debt, and should find a way to contribute some-thing to his community, to his
country, and to the human race.
