band, embracing popular selection by the
standard composers, delighted the music
lovers, while a trombone solo by J. L.

While cattle and hog receipt at the
stock yarus her continue to show an In
crease over the same period of time last
year, ther la a deficit In sheep receipts.
Commission men, however, expect that a
large proportion cf the deficiency In sheep
receipts will be made up before the end
of the year.
A great deal of Interest Is being manifest
by those dealing In live stock In the con
dition of cattle on the ranges. Heavy ship
ment of grass cattle are looked for before
long, and additional facilities for the bund
ling of heavy runs have been provided by
the management of the Stock Yards company.
In talking about conditions In Wyoming
last evening, a well known Wyoming stock-
grower said that unless the early summer
signs fall Wyoming cattle sent to this
market this fall will rank well with any
shipped here last year and topped the mar
ket. Herds In the eastern part of Wyo
ming are in excellent condition and give
promise of Improving before being shipped.
Timely rains have redeemed the Injury
done by the dry spell earlier In the season
and the range grass Is now as good as It
was last year at this time. What is wanted
now, said this stockman, 1 for the feed
to get Into condition for curing and thus
provide late fall pasturag. A great deal
of cow atuff will be shipped here this sum
mer and fall on . account of the govern
ment's order directing that range fences
be taken down. It Is expected here that
heavy shipments of grass cattle will tend
to break the market to some extent and
result In cheaper beef.
Building; Utah School Annex.
Contractor Kavan Is pushing the work
on the three-room frame addition to the
High school annex, Twenty-sixth and M
streets. The excavating for the founda
tion 'has been completed and material 1
arriving on th ground dally. While It
may not be possible to complete and fur
nish this addition by the time school opens
In September the contractor expects to be
able to turn the building over to the school
district by the end of September.
With the three additional rooms at this
annex the overcrowded condition of the
lower grades at the Central school will be
relieved, thus giving more room for the
more advauced pupils. '
The two-room addition to the Hawthorne
school will also help to reduce the pressure
at the High school building and will tend
to do away with the renting of outside
rooms at Twentieth and L streets.
It la the Intention of the Board of Edu
cation to let th contract for the two-room
addition to the Albright school as soon a
the details can be arranged.

Special Agent Llewellyn of the rural mall
service, wiping th perspiration off his
face. He had just found an item he had
been hunting for for hour ln a Denver
paper. And this I how it all came about:
Special Agent Llewellyn received a let
ter Sunday from Special Agent Clark, tem
porarily in charge of the headquarters of
the western division at Denver, containing
personal aa well aa official Information.
Among other things the letter referred to
an enclosed newspaper clipping with th
bop that the matter referred tp might not
come to the attention of the department at
Washington, a It might mak trouble, but
with th added assurance that if It did the
boy would surely stand behlrd him.
Search for the clipping, however, proved
fruitless, as ths -writer had plainly for
gotten to enclose It. Llewellyn racked
his brain to discover what mischief ho had
been into that should be taken up by the
newspaper. Th more he thought about
it the more scary ho became, knowing the
verity of the discipline enforced by hi
superior officer in the rural free delivery.
Unablo to contain himself he finally wired
hi friend Clark: "No clipping In letter.
What is it all about?"
Then the advice wa given to hunt up
th Item himself ln the exchanges of the
Hoe. He caught up the Idea at once and
wa soon rewarded. There stood the item
without mistake. It was a police court re
port of a hilarious coldter who when ar
rested for trying to clean out a Denver
drug store soda fountain howled forth:
"Leave me alone. I'm a friend of Llewel
lyn's and he'll see that I'm taken care of!"
According to the story, however, the
