- The Davis County Brass Bands had a grand reunion here on Tuesday. Our city had the appearance of a holiday, with flags floating from the principal business houses and crowds of people lining the streets. The Farmington, Centerville and Kaysville Brass Bands were present. After parading the streets here, they paid a brief visit to Layton and serenaded that town. Supper was served to about 125 friends and members of the bands. In the evening a ball was given in the Music Hall. The reunion was a grand success.
-- The Kaysville Creamery has added a cheese factory to their business. Byron Frank, an expert cheese maker has charge of this branch of the business.
-- A proposition is afoot to organize a company of Utah National Guard in Kaysville. We may expect to see Kaysville quota mustered into service. Several of our young men seem anxious to enlist.
-- We hope the Union Pacific people were in earnest when they made the proposal to erect a new depot here. It is badly needed. The shack that Kaysville people have had to put up with for so many years is a positive disgrace to the company and Davis County.
-- Mrs. Jane W. Blood has gone to Logan to visit with her daughters.
