-- Word was received here last night that 37 Oakland Industrials under Captain Watsen had just arrived in Kaysville. The men were provided with supper and a place to sleep. They announced they would proceed to Salt Lake this morning.
-- The Primary Association of Kaysville gave their president Mrs. Jane W. Blood a pleasant surprise party yesterday afternoon.
-- Some friends of Miss Mabel Hyde surprised that lady at her home last evening and spent a pleasant time as her guests.
-- The men of the Kaysville Brass Band have shown their good judgement and their loyalty to home institutions by ordering uniforms from John C. Cutler and Brothers of Salt Lake City. The material will be the product of Provo Woolen Mills and the outfits will cost $250. It is evident that the movement in favor of home industries is not without good results.
