    New City Numbering System in Effect, Streets of Price Known by New Names

    Do you call the street leading up from the station, Eighth street, the street by the tabernacle, Seventh street, and so on?

    Then, taking it for granted you do, right now is a good time to forget these old appelations and begin referring to the two thoroughfare names as "Carbon Avenue" and "First East Street".

    Plats of the entire city, including all subdivisions, with every street renamed and every house or building spotted thereon, according to the ordinance passed recently by the city council, were completed this week. New numbers will be placed upon the houses within the next few days, and for the first time in its history, Price will have an ..... comprehensive system of street and house numbering.

    Under the new system, the center of the city is fixed at Main and Carbon, or what was formerly Main and Eighth streets. Beginning at this intersection, streets are counted in numerical order north and south of Main street and east and west of Carbon avenue. Thus, First East street is one block east of Carbon avenue, both north and south, of Main and First South street is the first street south of Main, both east and west of Carbon. The same rule applied to all streets radiating from the center point. Numbers of houses are determined on the basis of allowing 100 numbers to each block. The new system being put into effect is acknowledged as being about the most simple and understandable in use today, and is the system used in many of the larger, up to date cities.
