THE LOGAN REPUBLICAN 1

About Senator Clark.
An unusally picturesque short per
sonal sketch Is that of Senator Wil
liam Andrews Clark, of Montana, con
tributed to the February Cosmopolitan
by Henry R. Knapp, William An
drews Clark was of Pennsylvania
Scotch-Irish stock, and though of
slight physique, has so much endur
ance and vitality that at sixty-three
he seems as full of energy as he was at
At the latter age, after having en
joyed an academic education, he hired
as a teamster and drove an emigrant
wagon from his parents'homc at Mount
Pleasant, Iowa, to Central City, Colo.,
750 miles, in 45 days. He expected to
And gold, and though disappointed in
the prospect became a miner.
V,- In a year or so, he drove an ox-tcaln
' " to Montana, taking 65 days for the
dangerous Journey. AtVlrglna City,
he bought a claim with his oxen, and
after nine months of back-breaking
work, knee-deep in icy water, cleaned
up $1,500. Clark drove 300 miles to
Salt Lake, bought goods, and became
I a trader. Flour was $150 a sack, ham
was $1 a pound. One Napoleonic ex
pedition for tobacco netted him
In the meantime, Clark kept try
ing to find a good mine. After some
failures, he wanted to know of the
technical side and went to Columbia
College and studied metallurgy In
1872. Later, he took two jears In
In the meantime, the development
of electricity and the necessity for
copper wire impressed Clark with the
value this metal would have in the
future. "So, looking for a big, rich,
and easily worked copper mine he oc
cupied his spare time for a year. He
rejected many promising ones, until
one day there rode into a mining
camp, thirty miles cast of Phoenix,
Arizona, a modest, unassuming man,
-tanned, and bearing the stamp of a
'health-seeker.' He talked mines,
and used his eyes. Then he asked the
price of a group of mines.
" 'One hundred and lifty thousand
dollars,' was the reply, Jocularly and
" 'I'll take It. Make out your pa
pers.' "What's your name?'
"William A. Clark, of Butte; and
here's a check for fifty thousand dol
lars. I will pay the balance in thirty
"Those owners were gleeful. Their
mine was sold, and so, thought they,
was Clark. But that was not their
business. It was twenty-live miles
from a railroad, up and down a pre
cipitous mountain trail. It had never
made any money, because- there was
no egress, . and no smelter. Clark
built a railway where it was said that
could not be done; and, discarding
ramshackle buildings and haphazard
machinery, he installed a modern
plant, and then built a smelter. The
town of Jerome grew up. The out-
--sldo tralllc on the railway now pays all
.charges, leaving the mine and smelter
tralllc clear of expense.
"Today, the United Verde mine
yields a million dollars a month. It
could bo made to yield twlco as much
just as readily. The body of copper
is rich, and apparently inexhaustible.
Fifteen million pounds cash was refus
ed by Clark in 1805. It Is worth
twice or thrice or even a dozen times
that today. No one knows but Clark,
and lie will not discuss it.
"It,s nobody's business,' is his reply.
'It's not for sale.' "
Senatoar Hoar's Advice to
"First: Do not hurry. For those
that want to work well there is time.
The wise disregard hustle and bustlo
and place thoroughness above speed."
Hlght. The greatest curso laid upon
human eirort is the lack of this same
thoroughness, in preparation and
"execution. The half-baked man never
achieves very much. Even success,
however great it may seeem to be, if
It is won quickly is seldom won per
manently. The kind of success is the
success that is built solidly and surely
on deliberate methods. The kind of
man that wins that kind of success is
the man that knows thoroughly what,
fie has to do, and then docs It to the
best of his ability.
There is getting to be less and less
place In the world for the man that
knows only half of his job. He must
know It all now."
Second, Mr. Hoar said:
"Remember that there Is something
more to live for than money. Turn
from the race for the world's goods, the
mad fight for greed, to -love of higher
things. You may devote yourself to
the practical arts, but remember that
there Is something nobler to human
life. Do not neglect the spiritual
side. A man may be ever so rich and
ever so skillful, but ho docs HI who
forgets tastes and affections."
Third, said Mr. Hoar:
"I advise you to read some author
every day. Read him so well, soak
yourself so thoroughly with him,
bathe In his wisdom so often that you
will emerge from him as from a spark
ling fountain of purity.
"Whom shall you read? There is
little need for lengthy discussion on
that point, for our tongue is too rich
in its singers. Read Wordsworth;
sit at the feet of Emerson, or drink at
the fountain of Milton, and you will
have added to your knowledge of the
practical arts the inspiration that
helps to develop the spiritual side."
We add to these suggestions to
young men about reading:
1. Read Shakespeare before Words
worth or Milton. Shakespeare is the
great exponent of the principles of
human life in all ages. No man be
comes atrophied that reads Shakes
peare, for this Is the perennial source
of human sympathy and also the most
perfect art in literature.
2. Read standard history. It tells
you what men have done and suffered,
and from that you can learn how slow
progress is and how much is yet to be
done for men. Read Gibbon's "De
cline and Fall of the Roman Empire."
It Is more fascinating than any novel.
Read Buckle's "History of Civilization
In Europe." Read Hume and Lccky.
Try to read the historians that arc
not carried away by the glory and
noise of war and conquest; try to find
out that nations have other missions
.than killing inferior races, and man
has some other purpose on earth than
snatching bread from his fellow man.
Read the history of your own
country; try to learn tha significance
of its origin as a protest against force.
3. Read Biography. Read the
lives of Thomas Jefferson, Washing
ton, Lincoln, Wendell Phillips, John
Bright, nenry George and other men
that have stood for something and
4. And keep up your acquaintance
with at least one foreign language
it is so easy, so great a source of profit
and pleasure. The English speaking
races are generally far behind in this
simple addition to the Joys of -life. In
continental Europe most people know
at least two languages and many know
six or seven. The mental discipline
of acquiring and retaining a language
Is a great advantago to you, no matter
what may be your line of work, a'nd
tho treasures of another literature
that it opens ought to bo a means of
grace against the kind of brain-hard-cnlng
that Mr. Hoar was talking
Tills excellent philosopher added as
his final word to his hearers advice to
make all their work honest and clean

"Abandon hope all ye who enter
here," is the well known Inscription
over the entrance to Dante's Inferno.
But of all the pictures of evil, none
can compare with the fearful Incanta
tion of tho witches seen in Shakes
peare's play. As tho poet says, "My
young remcmbcrancc cannot parellcl
a fellow to it." In drtys gone by, the
spirit business on the stage was man
gled fearfully, but at tho present time
with the aid of chemicals, blographs,
electricity and steel, the spirits are
produced In wondcrfulshapoandnot
at all unpleasant to the eye. Several
of these modern up-to-date wonders
are exhibited by Alden Benedict's
company In Macbeth, with John
Grlillth, at the Thatcher Opera
J. D. Fife, manager of the Western
Mollnc Plow Company of Utah, has
been In this city the past four days.
While here he succeeded In launch
ing in this county In a satisfactory
manner to himself tho business he
represents. Mr. Fife has secured somo
of the most influential men of tho
county to act as agents for his com
pany. The title of the new firm that
is established is tho Cache Valley
Implement company. The main
places of business will be at Logan,
Smlthflcld and Hyrum. These three
local houses will carry a full and com
plete line of all the goods handled by
the Western Mollnc Plow Company
and will be stocked witli an unlimited
supply of extras.
It seems strange that nature made
so many mistakes. It placed horns
on the head of cattle, but man saw a
chanco for improvement and decreed
the horns useless and must go. It
placed tails on horses, but man said
the Creator was again mistaken and
the tails came off. It placed whiskers
on the face of man, but Populism
faded from the face of the earth and
man bade adieu to the unnecessary
appendage. It placed seeds in
oranges, but little children swallowed
the seeds and miniature orange trees
grew in their stomachs, so man said
the seed must forever depart from the
luscious fruit. It coated chickens
with feathers, but now man declares
this coating Is not llttlng and the
feathers must go tho way of the cow's
horns, the horse's tail, the man's
beard and tho orange's seed. And
now tho Department of Agriculture is
looking for a pig without a hair.
Yoa Sometime Want The Beit.
It isn't always that you want the
best; but when you subscribe for a
metropolitan daily newspaper, for any
reason, yon; want one which will give
yoiiall thd'news, and In clean and reli
able formj Tho Salt Lake Tribune
publishes every day in the year a com
plete newspaper. Its Intermountaln
news, its mining news, and its news
from Washington, and in fact all parts
of the globe, is complete and reliable.
Tho Dally and Sunday Tribune are
only 25 cents a week, $1,00 a month,
delivered by carrier or mall, anywhere.
Tho Semi-Weekly Tribune, a complete
newspaper, published on Tuesday and
Friday is but $1.50 a year. Sample
Numerous complaints have reached
thlsolllco of late regarding to sub
scribers not receiving their news
papers. The complaint is not confin
ed to the delivery of the Logan Re
publican only, but others, Including
tho Salt Lake papers. We concede
that once in a while proper connec
tions cannot bo made, through un
avoidable circumstances. In such
cases, tho patrons should be willing to
overlook but when these mishaps be
come regular the people have a right
to complain. Wo merely offer this as
a kind suggestions that all parties
connected with tho handling and de
livery of newspapors for ,thu public
will be as prompt as possible In the
discharge of their duties and as for
ourselves, wo will endeavor to take
our sharo of this advice.
The Rev. William M. Waddell, a
missionary sent out by the Presbyter
Ian Board, has Just ended a 4,000-mllc
trip from Bahla, Brazil, to New York
in orderto have a tooth drawn, though
much more serious consequence seem
ed to confront him. Two eminent
Brazilian physicians told the clergy
man that what he supposed was an
ulcerated tooth was a well-defined
cancer, and advised him to take the
next steamship for New York, where
he could be treated In a hospital. It
took eighteen days to reach that port.
Mr. Waddell arrived there Friday and
went to the Presbyterian Hospital.
"I think you need a dentist," said Dr.
Elsworth Eliot, the vlstlng surgeon,
after a mlcrosoplcal examination.
"You have an ulcerated tooth." Dr.
Eliot recommended a dentist, who drew
tho tooth, and Mr. Waddell says that
ho is now better. Mr. Waddell has
been stationed In Brazil for several
Among the many Improvements
added recently by The Salt Lake
Tribune is the most complete reports
obtainable from the mining camps of
Utah, Idaho and adjoining States.
The Tribuno has a reporter in every
mining camp of consequence between
Denver and the Pacific Slope. No
one interested in mining in Utah or
Idaho can afford to be without The
Tribune, which Is 25 cents a week for
the Daily and Sunday, $1.00 a month,
or $2 a year for the Sunday edition
alone. The Semi-Weekly Tribune,
issued on Tuesdays and Fridays and
containing a good summary of the
mining and all other news, Is only
$1.60 a year.
While a great many people through
out the valley are satisfied with the
recent change in railroad service,
thero arc somo who notice that the
dally news in our Salt Lake papers Is
curtailed a great deal In order for tho
papers to catch the evening train
that leaves for tho north. There Is
no good of complaining on this point
for'the Salt Lake papers must be out
to connect with the northbound train
at 12:30 n. m hence we can get the
news up to that hour and not beyond
