Several Now Residences Now Being Erected There.
Farmers Jubilant Over the Recent Storm–The Farmington Choral and Glee Club.
- William Wood and William White were in town yesterday.
- The storm of Thursday night was a lolla, and it is to be hoped that the end is not yet.
- Sunday evening’s conjoint session of the Young Men’s and Young Ladies’ Mutual Improvement associations will be unusually interesting. All invited.
- Thomas H. Phillips, John R. Barnes, Robert Blamires, William Blood, C. Burton, jr., and O. A. Taylor were in Salt Lake on business during the week.
- Several new residences are being erected here this year. and judging from the class of young men who are most energetic in these labors, we have reasons to believe that a number of Kaysville’s fair daughters will be led to the altar of Hymen before the close of 1891. If we are not correct in this surmise we will take in our shingle as a foreteller of coming events.
- Farmers are jubilant over the recent downfall of rain, as it doubtless means not only a large crop of hay, but a much larger yield of the cereal crops than they would have realized had it remained dry a few more weeks. In some cases they had commenced irrigating in order to save their crops. We could stand considerable more rain yet without complaining, but we should be thankful for small favors.
- Two members of the Kaysville historical and debating club will meet a like number from the Young Men’s Lyceum of Draper, in debate at the latter place on Friday evening next the 22nd inst. The question is: “Resolved that the negroes in the United States have had more cause to complain of their treatment by the whites than have the American Indians.” The Draper club will debate the affirmative and the Kaysville boys the negative.
- The combined efforts of the Farmington Choral Society and the Harmony Glee Club of Salt Lake City produced a very good entertainment in the Farmington social hall last evening. The bad weather doubtless deterred many from attending, who would have been present, but as it was, the house was fairly well filled. Some of the selections, noticeably the recitation, “An Order for a Picture,” by Mat Thomas, a song by Fred Moore, a duet by Misses Pyper, and a song, “The Lover and the Bird,” by Miss Annie Swalburg, were rendered very artistically and elicited from the audience round upon round of well-deserved applause. The comedy, “Love In Livery,” with some of Farmington’s best talent in the cast, closed the entertainment. The one thing which marred the peace of the respectable part of the audience last evening, was the noise and disturbance in the back part of the room. Our Farmington friends should put a stop to this by arresting and making an example of a few of the most prominent hoodlums.
