- Kaysville strawberries have been in market for a week.
-- J. R. Barnes will accompany the Democratic delegation next week.
-- The heavy rains of yesterday were a boon to the farmers of Davis County. It will increase the grain crops on the dry farms by thousands of bushels. The Social and Literary Society are making arrangements for a complimentary ball at the Music Hall Friday. Over 100 invitations will be issued.
-- James Smith and Charles Cottrell returned from a 2 year mission to England last Tuesday. Both are looking and feeling well and say they have spent the time enjoyably. Welcome!
-- Thistle Mills have been standing still for a few weeks; some new machinery is being put in.
-- The Raymond Circus struck the town yesterday and gave an exhibition. The show has a fair company of acrobats, riders and other good features but the menagerie is woefully scarce and for a 75 cent show it is perceptibly wanting. It doesn't deserve the patronage of the public. Numerous gambling games were started and doing a rushy business until Marshal Barton put a stop to them. Tomorrow they will exhibit at Ogden and residents of that city would do well to leave them alone.
-- Dr. Ingram's new house is nearing completion.
