- Our new Kaysville newspaper "The Eagle" Vol. 1 First issue has been printed. It is spoken of in complimentary terms by those who have examined it. It is a nice, newsy 6 column paper that will be published every Thursday. Eva B. Smith is the name nailed to the masthead of this paper. She says: "It is impossible to run a paper to please everyone. While we are always ready to receive and profit by the advice of others, we will not be dictated to."
