- Thanksgiving turkeys will be very scarce this year if turkey raising has proved as near a failure in other places as it has here.
- There is so much interest taken hero in the coming Salt Lake city election, that our own municipal election which takes place at the same time is entirely lost sight of.
- The butchering business is being worked here for all it is worth. Competition truly is the life of trade.
- In spite of the inclement state of the weather, the people who are building are steadily pushing their buildings toward completion. Carpenters are at work on the roof of James A. Cottrell’s residence, and the people of the Second ward are actively engaged in the erection of a new meeting house which they propose to complete before the new year.
- A good enterprising man wishing to start a bakery and confectionery business on a small scale, would do well to give our little town a trial. There is a chance for him to start business in a desirable location, and we are satisfied his venture could not fail of success.
- The first term of the academy ended yesterday. The students prepared a programme which was listened to by a large number of their parents and friends. The institution has made a good showing and Monday will undoubtedly see the sitting capacity of the building tested to its utmost.
- Mayor Stewart sold at public auction a number of pieces of city land last Saturday. All the land sold at a largo price, and some parties who wanted a piece of land, but had already bid its full value worried, the auctioneer by bidding a nickel at a time until one gave it up.
- The usual annual treat of the Sunday school was held today in the music hall. The children assembled at 10 a. m., when a very interesting programme, consisting of songs, duets, recitations, speeches, etc., was rendered. At noon the children sat down and did justice to a sumptuous repast prepared for the occasion. In the afternoon they danced and frolicked around to the music of Bone’s quadrille band until 5 o’clock when they dispersed, feeling they had been well cared for and well amused by those who had the affair in charge. The whole was an enjoyable event, and will undoubtedly be remembered by the little ones until another occasion of the kind comes along. To-night a ball will be given for adults, and the same enjoyable time may be looked for.
- There is some tall kicking being indulged in by THE DAILY HERALD readers on account of their papers so often coming a day late. This has happened twice this week, and seeing there are about eighteen HERALD subscribers to one of any other paper, we should be entitled to some consideration. THE SUNDAY HERALD did not arrive last Sunday, and the readers were sadly disappointed. This paper is largely read and looked forward to with as much eagerness as us a child looks for Santa Claus. We trust those who are in fault will remedy this, so that our HERALDS will come with more regularity.
