Salt Lake City, Uata, Sept. 22.

Utah, to the effect that the Book of
Mormon is opposed to the league of
Already Has Cabinet Shop Ready to
Turn Out Product Broom
Factory in Sight.
With other towns receiving new
industries now and then, Murray is
not being overlooked, for she is hav
ins added to her list of manufac
turing industries two new concerns,
a !)toom factory and a cabinet and
car body factory.
The former industry is being ft
nanced by Charles Tilson. who has
purchased the building standing near
the home of W. H. Puis, which he
is having moved to his lots in the
northeast part of the city for the
purpose of installing his broom mak
iifg machinery therein. The work is
being done by 11. D. McXurlin,, the
veteran house mover of Weeping
Water and his coterie of workmen.
When the building is established
on its new foundation, Mr. Tilson
will immediately Install the machin
ery :i::.'t commence the manufacture
of the Murray-made broom.
Mr. Theodore Iouton. who has
been in the wostj for some time
past has returned to Murray just
recivztly and built a house. Xow he
has taken steps to permanently es
tablish himself in the community by
opening a planing mill and cabinet
shop, with jointer, band and rip
saws, together with other machinery
adapted for his line of work. Be
sides being an expert carpenter and
builder, drawing all his own plans,
Mr. Bout on is a cabinet maker of the
firs: water, -and but recently con
st rutted a phonograph cabinet for
Jacob Hi Id which would put to
shame the best constructed cabinets
on the market for that purpose at
anywhere near the price at which
he can construct them.
Mr. Bout on will also engage in
the manufacture of truck bodies and
sedan bodies, as well as coupes for
automobiles. The machinery which
he has installed will enable him to
do the work at a more rapid rate
than was possible before. The new
labor-saving machine is known as
"The Pride of the Shop."

was given, and -which was very
much enjoyed by the large number
in attendance. Mrs. George Dodge
gave a reading, in which she told
"How the Eskimos Put the Booze
Out of Their Country." Miss Lucy
Arnold also gave a very interesting
reading. One of the honorary mem
bers, Mrs. C. K. Weseott of Bos'
Angeles, Calif., who is visiting rela
tives and friends in the city, was
present and gave a most excellent
reading. While it is impossible for
Mrs. Wescott to be present at all
their meetings, the ladies of the
Flattsmouth organization appreciate
very much having in their midst and
glad she finds it convenient to occa
sionally attend their meeting. The
program closed with benediction.
The ladies then devoted a few mo

partook of some dainty refresh
