H AIN'T IT AWFUL
HJ Anothci great crisis In American civilization hns
HB arrived, and as usual another great genius has arl3-
HI cu to guldo safely the old ship of stnte. thrntign
BBJ the turbulent waters
BBJ This tlmo n women is to bo tho great cmnnct-
HH pator. Her imrao is Mrs. Vcrmllye. Sho lives In
BBJ Now Jersey, or Now York, or Maine, or somewhere
HH in tho eastern stntcs. Anyhow it Isn't Kansas this
Hi time, nor Is It Utah. In any event sho talks In
!Now Jersey. That is to say sho talks In English
but tho English was used In Now Jersey.
Tho fact of tho matter is, this Mrs. Vormllyo
J hns mndo n great discovery. Unnldcd nnd alono sho
BBJ hns discovered the toxic virus of our American po-
HHJ lltlcal life. Not only hns sho discovered tho germ,
HHJ but sho has mado cultures, isolated tho particular
HH ' bacilli, and successfully inoculntcd n scries of
HH. cholco theories which sho now offers to tno Amor-
HH lean public gratuitously, free gratis, summer bon-
HH urn, nil for nothln'.
HH In plain English Mrs. Vcrmllye not Vcrmll-
HJ Hon hns discovered that tho ono great mennco of
HHU ' Amorlcan political life Is Mormonlsm! Horrors!
BBB but it's really so. Sho mndo tho announcement of
BBB her great discovery at tho session of tho Method.
HHW it Episcopal conference held In Newark, New Jer-
HH" sey last Thursday not that thcro Is anything new
HH In tho ladle's announced discovery for it would np
HH l'ear as though Mormonlsm had been "discovered"
HH upon diverse nnd sundry occasions in tho past,
HH Discovered in fact, whenever nnythlng had arisen
HH which gnvo rlso for alarm. Mormonlsm hns nlwnys
HH been found a convenient nnd somewhat obKgmg ve-
HH hlclo Pon which to load tho surplus of current np-
BBJ I probrum.
H However, tho lndlo's argument Is cortnlnly In-
HH I genlous and unlquo. Sho calmly Informs her cred-
HH I "lous hearers that Woodrow Wilson Is tho nrst of
HH I the Unl'tcd States presidents ever elected without
HH tlio Mor.non vote, and that therefore, consequently
H accordingly ns aforesaid, Woodrow Wilson can If
Hii h will "oxposo" tho hidden hand of Mormonlsm
HI tnk awfty tholr franchise, remove Heed Smoot from
Hl I t,, Scnato nnd banish tho Mormons to tho shades
HH of Nirvana. All of which gentlo mensures friend
HH' Woodrow is urged to put into motion "to oncct.'
HHm Funny, isn't it? JiiBt n few months ngo Alfred
HHJ Henry Lowis w(ns regaling tho readers of a popu-
HH , ' ln" mngazine with- n graphic portrayal of tho Mor-
HHv t mn "mennco." In which said mennco wns seen
B J. crawling In tho form of n snako from tho Mormon
BJj j temple at Salt I.nko City Into tho nntlonnl capltol.
H ' At that tlmo Alt Henry and others of his 11k, wcro
HHV sitting up nights figuring out how tho Mormon
H j church already held political control of Utah, Idaho
H Wyoming nnd sundry other stntcs, and that In Just
HHJ j n few short months they would bo In control of tno
HHJ nation and then And then tho plpo must have gono
HHJ out, for Alf Henry didn't get any further with his
Hq prognostications. Tho fact was someono cnlled
HH ' j him n liar nnd Alf believed It.
Hl ' j And now Inst of all comes tho aforesaid Mrs.
H Vormllyo who deposes and says thnt Woodrow Wll.
HH i I son wns elected WITHOUT tho Mormon vote, when
H I nono other not even Cleorgo Washington hnd nt-
HJ tntned such distinction.
H Why don't Alf Henry nnd Mrs. Vormllyo got
HH together, and "llgger" tho thing out? Hush, Gerald,
HJ child! Why do you say such Impertinent things!

HH It is to bo sincerely hoped that tho pending no-
HH gotintlons between tho local owners of tho various
HH Intcrurbnn lines In Utah, nnd tho eastern capitalists
HH may speedily materialize Into tho project nnnoun-
HH cud. It is In brief to connect Hrlghnm City with
HH Salt Lake by way of tho present Eccles and Ham-
HH- bergcr lines and then to push tho system onward
HH to Nuphl, theroby giving direct Interurbnn connec-
HH tlon from Hrlghnm to Ncphl, a dlstanco of npproxl-
HJ' mately 160 miles. Twenty million dollars Is tho
HH' i proposed capitalization of tho now cnterprlso and
HH, its representative who is now in Salt I.ako City Is
HH j authority for tho statement thnt various branches
HH i will bo run from tho main system into tho sur-
HHj; j rounding sections ns fast ns conditions warrant.
HHl In caso tho deal goes through Logan Is cer-
HHJ tain to bo connected with tho main trunk line. Al-
HHjl ready the local peoplo havo begun their extension
HHn towards Provldenco nnd cars havo beon run to
HHJK Fourth South street, and ns Mr. Eccles Is also tho
HHjJ head of tho system now connecting Ogden with
HHn Drlghnm City it is n safo guess that next year will
BBJ witness tho peoplo of Lognn making twp hour vis-
BBJ Its between Logan nnd Ogden by electric rapid
BBJj Utuu is coming Into her own! Moneyed men
HHJ ' of tho east nro not afraid to Invest their capital

HHlli tho peoplo of tho state are progreslvoly "conserva-
HHJ tlvo. More railroad facilities is tho great crying
!J need at present, and apparently this is shortly to

A STRONG PARAGRAPH j
Thanksgiving proclamations nro generally) pretty
dry reading, becauso a good many men who wrlto j
them were not trained In tholr younger days to j
wrlto anything that had tho least sentiment in It.
Hut ono paragraph in tho recent proclamation
of President Tnft Is worth careful rending. It Is
Strong In tho steadfast conservation of tho
hcrltago of self government bequeathed to us by
tho wisdom of our fathers, nnd firm "in tho re
solve to transmit that heritage unimpaired, but
rather Improved by good use, to our children and
our children's children for nil tlmo t6 come, tho
peoplo of this country! havo abounding cause ior
And that was written a day or two after tho
president knew that ho waB overwhelmingly de
feated for re-election. Hut It bIiows that his Is n
very lovol head and tho man who ought to read the
paragraph with most thought Is the hero of Oys
ter Hay who spent his summer In trying to show
how varied an lngrato ho Is. So versatile has
ho been In thnt respect that ho published n'l over
nnd over to tho world that tho party over which
ho presided for soven years and which certainly
hns not dctcrlornted since, Is hut n husk; tho grain
is nil gone from it. And In doing thnt.too, ho made
clear that no obligation of party and no ties of
personnl friendship hnvo tho lenst weight with him
ns against his nmbltlbn, his vanity nnd hla nvnrlce.

THE LONG AND
SHORT HAUL. . j
I hold that It is nn Imperative duty or every ag
riculturist to Investigate and hecomo familiar with
both' sides of tho transportntlon question so that
the claims for tho abolition of abuses on the part
of tho carrier mny bo sound nnd entitled to tho re
spect of tho railroads For lnstnnco, what would
any' unbiased authority think of tho clnlra that lo
cal freight should bo houled as cheaply per ton
per mile ns transcontinental freight, everything be
ing proportionately equal in tho physical work In
tho two cases? Take, for example, a carload ship
ment on n short haul of 100 miles in n business
thnt requires tho car to boeturned empty nnd tho
car to bo promptly moved. It requires tho ship
per ono day to load tho car, ono day to hnvo It
unloaded and tho railroad ono day to tnko It lo Its
destination nnd return it empty.
This Is 72 hours for tho round trip. The, rail
road's rovenuo was all enrned In tho twelve hours
whllo moving tho loaded car to Its destination
twelve hours of paying work, sixty hours nonpay
Ing work or tho car bringing in revenue only onw
sixth of the time. With tho long haul tho following
Is truo. Take for example, a carload from Los
Angeles to Chicngo, nllowlng liberally two days for
loading tho car, olght days for tho enr to reach des
tination, two days for unloading nnd eight aays tot
tho car to be returned empty n total of twenty
dnys. This shows that tho car wns earning revenue
for the road eight dnys, or two-fifths of tho time.
Assuming tho elevations to bo overcome" to bo
in the samo rntlo ns tho two distances, tnp cost
of energy required to move ono ton ono mllo would
bo tho samo. Then, tho earnings of tho enr on tho
long hnul, during tho twenty dnys required to
mnke tho trip nro over twlco that of tho car In
service on tho short hnul, tho samo class of freight
bolng handled and tho speed of tho two trains be
ing tho samo. Tho ratio of earnings of tho car on
tho short haul to that of the enr on the long haul
is as one-sixth to two-fifths, or whllo tho car on tho
short haul is earning $10 tho other earns $24.
Tho railroads do not need their sldo of the
transportntlon question set forth here. Uut tho
fnrmers need it, for in nil fairness and utility to
their own causo tho farmers must understand at
least nil tho Intrinsic elements on both sides that
go townrd establishing Just freight rates. Pursuing
tho economic reform in a caso under my observa
tion, a community of local shippers In which I held
a farmers meeting ono yenr ngo had complained
for y'cnrs about tho cxcesslvo freight rates charged
upon transporting fnrm produco to market. Tho ta
riff was Indeed high, but tho tonnngo was small and
offered In a very Irregular and jumbled wny to tho
Tho growers hod not thought of any plan by
which tho produco could bo handled moro system
atically and economically upon tho part of tho enr
rlors. Finally n Bhlpplng association was formed
and sufficient frolght guaranteed to causo tho rail
road to take notico. Some dllllcultles In loading
and In handling back tho empty crates wero ro
moved, nnd I remember ono item showed that
$1500 worth of eggs wcro shipped by tho associa
tion tho llrst year. Tho shippers secured a reduc
tion of nlno cents n crnto In tho freight rates nnd
tho railroad has no doubt mado moro money since
tho reduction thnn before upon this class of pro
duco. So tho short hnul rates may bo reduced
sometimes with profit to producer, consumer nna
cnrrlor whero economical practices aro adopted in
tho preparation, system and amount of produco
handled. J. W. Jeffrey, In Field and Farm.
If It is good to uso attontion tomorrow, how
much bettor is it to do so today. If tomorrow It
Is in your Interest to attend, how much moro Is to
day, that you may bo nblo to do so tomorrow nlso,
ond may not defer It ngaln to tho third day.

"Let Us Feather Your Nest"
When tho glory of tho autumn,
Sinks nway In duller shades,
When tho crimson of tho maple,
Uleaches in the sun nnd fades.
When tho north wind gently sighing
Sounds like mother nature crying,
As tho leaves go whizzing, nylng,
In tho forest and the glades.
And whllo sitting by tho window,
Listening to tho falling rain,
Drip, drip, drip, upon tho pavement,
Splnshlng 'gainst tho window pan-,
Then tho spirit of November,
Sister month of cold Decerauer
Chills ray heart as I remember,
Autumn buried Is again.
Whero is May I ask with roses,
And her beds of violets huor
Whero is Jung with all nor rragranc-s
And hor nzuro skies of blue,
Gono llko August nnd Scptemtwr,
Whoso ripo sheaves I well rcmembor
Glittered In th hir'ests splendor,
Hansom they of labor truo.
And as each dear month departed
Though It breaks our hearts to say
With Bomo kind truo friend wo par
ted, Death seems over on tho way.
Thus tho spirit of Nqvembcr
Covers hopes and flowers so tender
Yet they'll bloom ngaln In sp:endor
Fresh and glad to b0 alway.
Withered nover yet n flower
Shorn of hopo to bloom again,
Knlfo llko sorrow cuts no heart
That shall not And healing when
Heaven shall lift the gloomy curtain
Henl our wounds of all their hurt-'
Bring a spring tlmo suro and cer
A Mny nnd Juno forever then.
