The Story of
By JONATHAN BRACE
THE il r s t
back to 1540
when a party
sent out by
Coronado succeeded in penetrat
ing to the Colorado river. There
is no authentic record of fur
ther explorations until over 200
years had elapsed. In 1770 two
Franclscun friars, In their at
tempt to find the shortest woy
to the Pacific, went from Santa
Fe" to Utah Lake. The Oreat
Salt Lake, however, was not
discovered until 1824, when
James Bridges, a trapper, in
wandering through this region
came upon this huge, Inland, salt
But the real history of Utah
begins with the rise of Mormon
power there. Discouraged by the
agitation In Illinois and Mis
souri, the Mormons decided to
emigrate to the great West. In
large caravans they traveled
across, the plains and in 1847
came to Salt Lake City where
they settled. Here they flour
ished,, increasing their numbers
and by 1852 they reached a total
In this vicinity of over 16,000.
Meanwhile. In 1848, by the terms
of the treaty of peace with Mex
ico, a huge western tract, of
which Utah was a part, was
ceded to the United States. As
no definite government was ar
ranged for, the coutrol of affairs
locally was for a number of years
entirely In the hands of the elli
ce rs of the Mormon church.
They, accordingly, mode up a
constitution and organized un
der the name of the State of
Deseret. This is a word taken
from the Book of Mormon, and
signifies, "Industry." Application
was made for admission to the
Union, but this was refused and
the federal government Instead
organ ired the Torrltery of Utah
in 1850. The first governor was
Brigham Young, the successor
of Joseph Smith and president
of the Mormon church.
The attempt to do away with
polygamy met with little success
until lu 1890 the Mormon church
finally agreed not to countenance
lt. Meanwhile, growing antag
onism between the Mormons and
non-Mormons verged nearly on
civil war. Finally a general
amnesty was declared and after
many requests Utah was ac
cepted ns the forty-fifth ateto of
the ttnlon In 1896.

? tiling in Particular.
j (Clenfson Bulletin.)
I Is lt true that the boll weevil has '
j been plncod between two blocks of
i ice and was found to be alive after
j all the ice had melted? This is a
I question nsked frequently of Prof. A.
i F. Conradl, entomologist, and an uu
I thority on boll weevil matters. Prof.
Conradi's answer to a recent Inqui
rer should be of interest and infor
mation to all, as it throws real light
on the matter:
That is very likely true. Another
fad is to bore a hole in a block of
ice, in which a boll weevil is then
hermetically sealed for 24 hours.
Why should the experimentor 1)6 sur
prised that the beetle is still alive?
(Melting ice has a temperature of
approximately 32 degrees Fahren
i heit, and a boll weevil sealed within
or between ice experiences no radia
tion or evaporation, and is, there
fore, not in the least affected by
Partridges, rabbits and other small
i game frequently seek shelter under
the snow in cold winter weather. Ice
floes andr snow drifts are not infre
quently resorted to <by man In the
North for temporary shelte;- lr. cold
and stormy weather.
We have, successfully kept weevils
and other insects in brine chambers
and Ice box?s under dry atmospheric
conditions, but we have never suc
ceeded in keeping them for prolonged
periods in ico boxes, unprotected
ngoinst moisture. The weevil, like
poople, rosponds much moro easily
to radical changes in cool weather
than to uniform conditions that ob
tain In an leo box.
No Practical Hearing on Control,
Putting tho weevil In a block of
leo is moro than 20 years old. lt
was done In Texas when tho woovil
first arrived, and as tho woevll mi
grated eastward, this practice con
tinued 'to he ono of the fads in newly
Infested territory yoar after year.
'I he tost has no practical value what
ever, as there ls no semblance to the
natural changeable conditions that
obtain In tho open.
