#59 IN SERIES - NOVEMBER 1895The Democrats in Kaysville achieved a magnificent victory. The officers elected: Thomas H. Phillips Mayor; Henry H Blood Recorder; George W. Barnes Treasurer; John H. Blood Marshall; Albert Beazer JOP. Councilmen: George Swan Jr., Amos H. Bishop, Joseph B. Jarman, J. W. Gailey and Seth C. Jones. Republicans who were out prepared to jollify, slipped silently away from city hall and homeward, plodding their weary way. It was a case of having built castles in the air.Daniel Bodily and Miss Annie Barton were married yesterday (11-13-1895)All of the Kaysville Schools are crowded, some teachers having as many as 90 students to look after. 20 couples of young folks met for a surprise party at the home of J. H. Bonnemort Friday. The party was gotten up for Nicholas Bonnemort and a most pleasant time was had. Several new superb residences that have been built this season stand as monuments in Kaysville. We cannot help but linger and delight to gaze upon the beautiful 6 roomed brick cottage that city recorder Henry H. Blood has erected. It is picturesque with its tower, wide dormer windows, modern roof and elegant plate glass windows. It is a pity it does not stand upon the main road where it could impress travelers as they pass with the idea that Davis County has some fine houses. The home cost about $2,000.
