H WARl WARI WAR1
l These ho "tho piping times of pcaco" singe tho
HBV" poet, but Judging from the reports which follow
HBV each other In rapid succession something has gono
HBVJ sadly wrong with the pipes over in Europe. War,
HBflJ dark browed and lowering Is hanging heavy on the
HHVJ enstern sky. The little llnlknn troublo scarcely
HBVJ bigger than a school boy's quarrel, has now at-
HHVJ tnlncd such proportions that it threatens to engulf
HBVJ all Europe Tho big powers which have waited
H so impatiently for tho tlmo to strllfo arc now be-
H ginning to chafo under tho delay; for bo It known
H that tho leading powers of Europe, England, Gcr-
H many, Austria, and Ilussla, arc llko so many hun-
gry hounds each eagerly awaiting tho chance to
H snatch a bono.
H Italy too, has now added to the complications.
H Sho has concluded her war with Turkey Just In
H tlmo to assume her place In the "grando chart-
Bon." Her victory over Turkey has added greatly
H . to her prestige among tho powers, nnd it Is safe
' to assumo that she too will demand her "pound of
H'J , flesh" should there come a division of the spoils.
Hi Up to tho present moment none of tho big
W powers havo spoken. Tho game of diplomacy Is a
Hj shrewd conjecture, nnd ono of the salient rules is
H silence. Austria, however, has been forced to enter
B her protest. It Is Imperative that sho havo a lino
H' of direct communication to the Adriatic sea. Servia
H Hushed with victory now threntens to contest Aus-
H ! trla's right to the same. Hence, Emperor Fran-
H els Joseph and tho plenipotentiary of Servia aro
H now In hourly conference.
H Mcantlmo Russia Is mobilizing her forces nt
H every sea port. Tho Huslan soldiers whoso term
H of service has expired are being retained. Historic
H Scbastropol Is again alive with martial spirit, whllo
H Germany, always eager to obtain more territory
H for hor increasing population, Is playing a watch-
H Ing and waiting game Last of all England Is
H keeping a wntchful eye over all. Her navy nnd
H army are always ready and thus far England hns
H ' nover been left out of tho "entente cordialo" and
n It may bo safely nsumed that sho Is not neglect-
Hf ing her chances In tho present melee.
Hfj , It is sincerely1 to be hoped that the minds of
H" men will prevail over their brutal selfishness In
H the solution of tho present complex situation, and
B- that greater bloodshed ana suffering may bo avoid-
K cd. If peaceful measures Bhould fall, then woe Is
Hl Europe! for the holocaust which shall follow will
B ho such as to change In every feature, the present
H map, and tho world wilt bo set far backward In Its
H - march toward abiding peace.
H A SOLVENT FOR OUR ILLS.
H Just about now, when tho Bull Mooscs, nnd
H tho Dull Muses, and the Socialists, and the I' roll I-
. , bitlonlats, and tho Progressives, and the Conservn-
H ' tlvcs, and the Middle of tho Hoads, and tho Men,
Hj 5 Women nnd Religion Forward Movement nro all
Hl singing together In ono grand chorus, nil slightly
H off key, producing a beautiful dipsomaniac sym-
H phony, comes ono Charles Edwin Ellis and kindly
H I sets us all straight.
H Mr. Ellis has organized a Society of Siucerlsts
H His society has been duly incorporated, and a plat-
H form of three thousand words has been issued. Mr.
H Ellis Is president, vice president, secretary and
H treasurer, and seems to make up tho membership
of this now society.
H The man has money, and any man who has
H money Is worthy of our consideration as long as
H tho money lasts. Mr. Ellis nlso has cnthuslnsm.
H Ho has tnken a suite of rooms at tho Park Av-
H enuo Hotel In Now York, where he hns many beau-
H tiful Btenographers and typowrlUstB, sending out
H quantities of printed matter, explaining how nnd
H why we have all wandered from tho main road
H into tho prlmroso path of dalliance.
H- , Mr. Ellis argues that the cause of all our trou-
H hies for everything that lies between tho realm
! of Knox tho Hatter nnd tho local chiropodist .Is
the fact that we aro not sincere Thoso serious
people whoso lives aro given over to questioning
itho sincerity of others 1 fear me nro InBlncero.
Whnt business has anybody going around ques
tioning tho Blncorlty of other people? Everybody
Is sincere In everything thnt he does at tho tlmo
he does It, otherwise ho wouldn't do It. Wo nro
h sincere even In our Insincerity. Is EUIb slncero
H In questioning our sincerity?
Bl Tho Eleventh Commandment is worth a little
W August as well as September attention on the part
ftl of Ellis. Ho Bhould have It cut In an oak plonk
K 1 nnd placed above his dosk. whoro not only ho, but
H nil of his pretty stenographers and typowritlsts
H can see it. Of course, I mako no argument for
i" wnlvlng tho Ten Commandments. Thoso doubtleSB
havo tholr use, although I well remember when LI
Hung Chang went to church In Now York City,
nnd hearing tho Ten Commandments Intoned oy
tho pastor, turned to his guide nnd asked. "Havo
not you people quit dolnc tbeso thlngB yet?" So
tho Ton Commandmonta i,r, all right, hot tho
Eleventh ono 1b surely vor'U -while. It Is na fol-
)rwa: Do not takq yourself too dam seriously, you
---" ' ,..-. i .
,v . out or Ufa alive, anyway. I
Mr. Ellis has confused sincerity with so-.ouGt j

works of Chester Firkin, James, Montague, Alfred j
Henry Lewis, Charles Ferguson, Edwin Markhnni, i
Winifred Black, William F. Kirk, and EnaWheo!.

form ratified, amplified and explained, evon.bcforo

Another million dollar suar factory for Utah! ,
Is tho splendid Item of nowd conveyed In. tho dls-.f
patches, and every" citizen of the Btato wlllreJolc
nt tho announcement. ' "" i
The old adago thnt: "It's an Hi wind thar'blows
no good," appears to be verlhcd in tho present In
stance. Several years ago tlio sugar people' erect
ed an immonso plant at Nampa, Idaho, tho farmers
In tho vicinity responded. with a splendid acreage
of beets and for a time all went well. But Boon
a tiny Insect, the white fly, appeared and ncro af
ter aero of beets were put boyond tho pnlo of use
fulness. After repeated efforts upon tho part of
tho sugar people asd tho farmers It was finally de
cided to abandon tho Industry in that section, tho
Immonso plant was shut down, and In that condi
tion It has remained ovor since.
Now the ii' tncs its intention o(
removing the plnnto enrte blanche to Spanish Fork.
Tlicro with tho opening of the Strawberry irrigation
project thousands of acres of choice beet land wllf
be made avatlabl . Thus far tho best has been
kept out of Utah, nnd with tho splendid activity
now being manifested by tho ..grlcultural College
experts It , is doubtful whether It will ever gain
a foothold here.
A million dollar plant means much to Utah
and Its pcoplo and emphasizes tho confidence which
capitalists have In the state.

With tho vast public reasonable and honesty
as the accepted standard, what must tho advertiser
do to sway public opinion 7 Above all things ho
must understand nnd beliovo In the public. He
must realize- that it Is reasonable, and ho must bo
Impressed with the necessity for honesty In his
dealings with it. His advertisement should bo not
only plethoric with promise, but potential with per
formance. , They should be clothed in originality
and vitalized with truth; they should not bo de
signed to sway public opinion only for personal
profit, but aiso for tho public good. By this I
mean that tho object of personal gain should never
Induce tho advertising of nny nrtlclo or thing that
would be Injurious to the public health or public
morals, and that tho advertiser should lUndevUUing
ly exploit those things only which, whllo ottering
an honest reward, nro compatible with tho public
It Is a fine and inspiring thing, this striving of
tho peoplo for an improvement in their ethical
standards. It has undoubtedly produced much dis
turbance and agitation, but It has aroused a keener
consciousness of right, and has moreover inspired
a higher and nobler endeavor.
All that advertising men havo to do, all that
tho men In public life havo to do, air that the
managers of big business nnd of big corporations
have to do, to sway public opinion, Is to bo respon
sive to tho higher ethics; to havo faith In nnd to
understand the peoplo; to denl squarely and hon
estly with them, nnd to measure up to tho popu
lar aspiration for better and clenneri methods in
nil tho concerns o' civilized life. W. G. MoAdoo.

A man's Thanksgiving: God of commonsense,
I give Thee thanks for tho heavy blows of pain
thnt drive me back from perilous ways Into har
mony with tho laws of my being; for stinging
whips of hunger nnd cold that urge to bitter "Striv
ings and glorious achievement; for steepness and
roughness of tho way and staunch virtues (rained
by climbing over Jagged focks of hardship and
stumbling through dark and pathless sloughB of
dlscourngement; for the acid blight of failure that
has burned out of me all thought of easy victory
and toughened my sinews for florcer battles nnd
greater triumphs; for mistakes I havo made, and
tho priceless lessons I 'havo learned from them;
for disillusion and disappointment thnt havo clear
ed my vision and spurred my desire; for strong
appetites and passions and tho power they give
when under pressure and control; for my Imper
fections that give mo tho kosn delight of striving
God of common good nnd human brothcrhpod,
I glvo Thee thanks for siren songs of temptation
thnt luro and entnuglo and tho understanding of
other men they revenl, for tho weaknesses nnd
fallings of my nolghbors nnd tho joy of lending n
helping hand; for my own shortcomings, sorrows
and loneliness, that glvo mo a deeper sympathy
for others; for ingratitude and misunderstanding
and tho gladness of service without other reward
than self expression. Artnur W. Newcomb.
The British Chancellor of tho Exchequer says:
"To maintain peace the nations of tho world spend
annually $2,250,000,000." The nations by settling
all controversies through an International Court,
could, after reserving $500,000,000 for policing, save
annually $1,750,000,000. This saving productively
employed would build annually 250.UOO miles of ma
cadamized roadB, exceeding In length tho railroads
of tho United States.. It would build annually six
transcontinental railroads from tho A'tlantlc to tho
Pnclflc. It would build annually five trans-Siberian
rnllroads. It would build annually five Pan
It would build' annually three "Capo to Cairo"
railways . It would reconcile nnnuolly tho losses
of four San Francisco disasters. It exceeds by
$380,000,000 tho valuo of our 1908 combined cotton
and wheat crops. It exceeds by four times tho
valuo of nil gold produced in tho world In 1D08.
