Salt Lake City, Jan. 14. Apostle
Reed Smoot has received the Re
publican caucus nomination for
United States Senator.
Reed Smoot Is one of the leaders
of the Mormon church. He is In
his fortieth year and is a native of
Utah, having been born In Salt
L,ake. wiicn a small boy he re
moved with his parents- to Provo,
' Utah, where he has since resided.
lie is a gradute of the Brigham
Young Academy. Preferring a
business to a professional career he
entered the Provo Co-operative
Institution in 1S80 and in eighteen
mouths bccalnc its superintendent.
In 1884 he resigned to become
manager of the Provo Woolen Mills
which he controls.
Smoot is interested in several
private enterprises, among which is
the Smoot drug store. He owns
many sheep, is largely interested In
banking houses and several big
mercantile concerns. He is associ
ated with Senators Kearns and
Clark, Perry S. Heath, and others
in the Salt Lake, San Pedro, and
Los Angeles Railroad, and the con
struction company formed to con
struct the same.
He is prominent in Mormon
church work, though not a Poly
gamic and has lately had a great
hold on politics in Utah. He will
succeed Joseph L. Rawlins, Demo
crat, as United States Senator from
Yolcauocs And Sky Effects.
"The discovery ofau order of
luminous night clouds at a height
above the earth so greatly exceed
ing anything which had ever been
observed, even of the highest cir
rus," says K. W. Maunder in
Knowledge, "was remarkable
enough. More remarkable still
were their variations. Forj they
were not by any means a perma
nent phenomenon, and diminished
in frequency of appearance from the
time of their first discovery. From
1885 to 1889 they were seen before
midnight; later they could only
be detected in the morning hours.
Their movements were more in
teresting still and were such as
might be caused if, though travel
ing with the earth, they were but
light subject to its attraction and
experienced some retardation as
they traveled with it. From any
point of view the existence of these
clouds must be regarded as most
remarkable. That clouds should
exist at all at a height greater than
the highest stratum to which we
owe twilight, and that so existing
they should be an occasional and
variable phenomenon are entirely
unexpected discoveries and still re
main unexplained. Can it be that
they are one of the by-products of
the great volcanic eruption of Kra
katoa in 1883? If so they may be
looked for after any great series of
volcanic outbursts, such as that
which commenced with the de
struction of St. Pierre in Martinique
in May, 1902, even though these
eruptions cannot compare in vio
lence with that of Krakatoa. Three
striking sky effects followed that
great eruption in 1883. The first
was com parti vely restricted both as
to area and lime, and took the
form of a remarkable coloration of
both sun and moon. At Batavia,
in Ceylon, at various places in
India, the sun was seen to be blue
or green blue when at the zenith,
changing through green and yel
low to total obscuration near the
horizon. A much more lasting ef
fect was that which received the
name of 'Bishop's ring,' having
been first reported from Honolulu
by Rev. S. E. Bishop. This ring
was a remarkable species of halo to
be seen on every fine day surround
ing the sun from its rise to its set
ting, and even occasionally around
the moon. Sydney Herald.

The minstrel merely whispered now how
weak he was with pain.

His throat much like a sieve it was, the
way the booze slipped down,
And then once more lie started in to sing
of Hilo town.
The shades of night were falling fast,
When through the Court House grounds
A jay, who said, with many a scowl,
You bet, but I'll make George Duncker
Oh stay! sweet uluas said and winked
But the virtuous youth, he merely blinked,
'Twas the red haired Czar, intent on gore,
As he entered Fiat Justicias' door.
There was Homer Ross and the Hackfeld
force, and lawyers by the score,
The hall was packed from stem to stern,
there wasn't room for more;
There was silence in the Courtroom; there
was stillness as of death,
A donkey then befcau to bray, and the
people held their breath.
When jumped the Sheriff to his feet,

So that the judge turned Duncker loose

Nay, nay, Pauline, and George, ouce
