"No Rain Anywhere,"
Says Weather lan
A Little Sprinkle in Florida tho Only
Evldonco of Moisture in tho
No rain anywhere In the United States
I the unusual report of Dr. Hyatt for
this time of tho year. A slight sprink
ling -in Florida that could hardly be
dignified by tho name of rain, is the
only evidence of moisture anywhere As
an example of Indian summer through
out the country, the present weather Is
as fine a sample as Hiawatha would re
quire for the background of a poem.
If tho weather has as much to do with
the way people feel as o supposed, there
Is strong reason for believing that near
ly everyone In the United States Is In a
good humor today, and wives who de
sire new fall hats, or men who are
broke, would do well to take advantage
of this facL
One can feel thankful for fair weather
without a sense of guilt, for, ro far as
anyone knows, nobody seems to want
rain, and the prayer of the farmer Is? not
a reproach In our ears.
There Is only one drawback to the
present arrangement in the weather
line. It Is all right for the' man who
has lent hio umbrella, or to ono who
contemplates doing a pedestrian stunt
across ties from one coast to the other,
but with much fair weather lying
around handy, the enjoyment of the
ordinary perpon is tinged with a certain
melancholy "that i not akin to pain."
In order to have brought about a state
of perfection that sprinkling In Florida
should have been a severe storm, then
the rest of the United States could have
sat back with the secure enjoyment
whose keenness comes from the con
sciousness that while the sweet October
sun streamo softly down upon us, some
whore else the people are slopping
through the stormy streets, and the roof
la leaking on some one else.
HOTEL WAS THREATENED.
Conflagration Nipped in the Bud by
Chief Bywater and Firemen.
Fire was In a fair way to reach a
point between the wally of the Manitou
hotel at 123 East Third South, whence
It would have spread over the entire
structure, when Chief Bywater and two
members of the department quenched It
late yesterday afternoon. The trouble
originated from a kitchen range, set
square nn the lloor.
A still alarm notified the department.
When the threo firemen and a chemical
reached the place they found that tho
llames had been for some time eating
their way beneath the lloor. As eoon as
boards were pried up the firemen found
the timbers and lloor boards were feed
ing a hot little blaze. They managed to
put this out after some dltllculty. The
damage wua slight.

"began unloading fruit peddler's cart
at a rapid rate 'last evening. For a
short time the air was full of apples.
These went from the hands of one of I
the trio to the receptive palms of the
other two. Finally the driver looked
around, and then things began to hap
pen. Fortunately for the outraged law
Mounted Patrolman Brown was near at

in short order. He then herded them to

Yesterday It was proved that oven tho

to tell what Is going on In International

the critical phaso of tho Anglo-Russian
situation had passed, and tho knowledgo

How did they do It? Thoy read tho
stock quotations. Wall street stocks,
which had dropped in prlco when tho trou

quence a marked depression was evident
after tho Russians began lighting their
own shadows nnd blowing British fishing
craft out of the water the other day.
Yesterday morning was hardly well be

depression vanished. Of course, tho stock
quotations are wired all over the country.

and tobacco, is the mission of a Utah
corporation tho organization of which was
completed yesterday. The name of the
corporation is tho Mexican Land & Sugar
Company of Utah, and Its thirty-two
stockholders are nearly all residents of
this city. The officers of tho company
are: W. W. Cluff. president; James Qhlp
nian, vice-president; Frank Knox, treas
urer; R, W. Young, secretary. Tho di
rectorate Includes, aside from tho offi
cers. T. It. Culler, IT. R. Kline. Charles
Itooklldge. Aqullla Nebeker, David Ec
cles, N. W. Clayton. W. A. Ray and
S. W. West. Among tho stockholders aro
Senator Thomas Kcarns, W. J. Doolev,
A. C. Austin, L. S. Hills and other well
Tho company has purchased from tho
Mexican Government a tract of 37G,79S
acres of virgin land In a bodv. about 250
miles east and fifty miles south of tho
City of Mexico, in the Stato of Tabasco.
It has fifty miles of Gulf coast lino and
Is on ono or more navigable rivers, be
side being In closo touch with the Te
hauntepec railroad. It Is said that not
to exceed 10 per cent of tho entire tract
Is waste land, whllo thu stories told of
the fertility of the soil are almost In
credible to ono familiar only with tho
temperate zone. It Is tho Intention of
tho company to reserve 10,000 acres of
the land for a townslto. Tho romaindor
probably will be placed on tho market
at about Jo nn acre, on Installments, a
certain amount of tho stock of the cor
poration going with each sale. Whllo
tho company's plans of operation have not
been rullv determined, It Is lllcely that
arrangements will be mado to market
more than enough of the hardwood tim
ber to pay for the land, and other re
sources will be realized upon as rapidly
as may be deemed practicable.
CHANGE FOR THE WORSE.
Street Car Company's Penny-Wiso
Policy Discouraging to Patrons.
Citizens generally aro not looking for
ward to the changes m the local street
car scrvlco with great pleasure, as a
change for tho worse Is anticipated. Tho
wholo plan Is ono arranged to benefit -the
company only, whereby a groat Bavlng In
cars and crews can bo effected. Tho Sov

Third street system, and this will do away
with tho senseless haul around tho several
blocks of Seventh South cars as at pres

However, by combining the two tho serv'
Ice can bo performed with ten cars, whllo
on tho two lines thero aro now thirteen
This will save the use of threo cars and
moro crews on this run alone, although
thero will bo no change In tho tcn-mlnute
service, Tho Seventh South cars will come
Into Main street as at present, but golnc
out they will run down Main street' to
Fourth South, thence to Stato and on to
destination as at present.
The KnutHford terminus of tho South
Temple lino will bo abolished and that line
will be consolidated with Fourth South
with a flftcen-mlnuto service. This wlli
do away with another car and will give
to tho people of East Fourth South a fifteen-minute
service ab against a twclvc

tho tlmo between cars on Brlgham Just
Tho Sixth street line and the Second
West lino will be consolidated, with a fifteen-minute
By tho chango tho company porforms tho
samo service with a decreased number of
cars. It may prove a success In somo In
stances, but tho public Is withholding Its
verdict until tho matter la given a trial.
