H HONOR THY FATHER AND THY
m By C. E. Riddle.
m "Honor thy father and thy moth-
m cr; that thy days may be long upon
M the land which tho Lord thy God
M giveth thee". This commandment,
H written in stone, cannot bo altered
H or erased. It is always in effect. It
fl stands as a lesson and a warning to
M all mankind. It is a part of our
H mornl and religious code. If wo cx-
H pect respect among mankind, we must
H honor and respect our parents because
m thoy gavo us birth. They are older
m than we; their wisdom is greater,
B their cxpcricnco conaftis more im
H prcssivo lessons, and wo need tho
M advice which is theirs to give. We
M are never too old to learn from fath-
H er and mother.
m It is very sad indeed, if tho young
1 -man in tho homo has an indifferent
H tattitudo toward his parents. Tho
M things which ho knows far Outweigh
M nnything father ever learned. Ho
M is' naturally brighter and under-
M stands things moro readily. He is
H a competent; efficient young man.
m and knows just what is best for him
1 to do. Father is an old "fogy" and
1 simply cannot understand tho sports
M of young men of today. Mother has
B peculiar ideas about the time he
m should spend at homo and how his
M evenings should bo spent. She should
m not say anything about what the
H young man is doing. If sho keeps
H the suits pressed, tho silk shirts
H laundered and has meals ready at
H all hours of tho day or night, that
H b all that is expected of her.
H Sometimes young ladies have this
H contagious indifference. Whose busi-
H ncss is it what young man she keeps
company with? Who wants to konw
M whero sho has been all 'evening and
H why Sho knows how vto pend her
H time. Mother), 'old-fashioned) 1doa
H about spending an evening at homo
H occasionally is a silly one and sho
H ought not to interfere "with her
H daughter's pleasures.
H 4 There aro too many such young
H jfien and young women today. Their
H interest is not in the homo but in
H tho pleasures which will not bring
B them satisfacton or joy but regret
H and sorrow in later years
H ' Blessed is the homo where , love
H exists. Mutual affection is Wni
H fest between parents and children,
H The boy's greatest friend and com
H panion is his father and unto him
H everything is told. Mutually they
H share joys and sorrows. Dad's nd
H Vice is listened to and considered by
H tho son, and dad, in turn, is eager
H for the son's views on all matters
H Mother and daughter are almost in-
separable. Girlish jloyif and plea
H .Bures, as well as disappointments
H " Tro told tho appreciative mother who
H -aires, as well as disappointments
H know of her child's happiness or
H is always interested and anxious to
H know of her child's happiness or
H sorrow. Their confidejy:e in each
M other is unlimited. They help, en
H courage, and cheer each other.
H Pleasures aro planned together and
H the young people are so guided in
H their amusements that they get
H clean, wholcsomo recreation and are
H not led into by and forbidden paths.
H Such a condition should exists in
H every homo and if it did very much
B of the ovil which prevails today
H would bo eliminated.
H Young people, who havo tho prop
yl er home environment, honor and re
H spect other people's fathers and
H mothers. To them fatherhood and
H motherhood is sacred and worthy of
H honor and praise. To do little acts
B of kindness, to say words of com-!
H fort, and to encourage those who'
H are weary and worn with the battlo'
H of life is a constant source of joy
H '"to them.
B There aro twoc lasses of peoplo
H who, with a ready smile and n word(
B of cheer, moke life worth while. The
M first is comprised of puro, clean boys
M and girls, full of lifo and sunshine,
H anxious to help thoso who are older
H and to radiato gladness in the
H world. Th0 second class is mado ujr
H of fathers and mothers, somo aged
fl and others not so old but ripo with
H wisdom and understanding Their
WM advice and oncouragement to tho
B voung is timely and their heavenlly
H influence, if young peoplo would ac-
cept it, would guide them in tho way
H of truth and righteousness and help
B them to find clean amusements.
H Let us hope that our boys and girls
'" m "' IJ" " -1 -' '""" " ?-
in tho community will not jeer at old
peoplo as they make their woy from
place to place in tho city. Each old
man is someone's father; each old
lady is someone's mother. Someone
loves them. Thpy merit respect,
courtesy, and veneration. In the
glowing sunset of their lives boys
and girls should bo proud and an
xious to help them and befriend
them in very way. ....
SHALL UTAH HAVE
A SQUARE DEAL?
What policies shall control in the
organisation of the next state legis
lature' and in the now state adminis
tration that will bo in control of tho
affairs of tho Commonwealth for
the next four years? One general
demand has been made tax' reduc
tion, better service and greater ef
ficiency in government.
Tho people do not want an old
fashioned legislative session starting
with fifty thousand dollars wasted
on fivo and ten dollar a day useless
clerks and experts and ending with
an orgio of log-rolling and midnight
sessions for big appropriations with
out formality of rollcalls.
Tho people do not want four or
five hundred n.ew Jaws passed creat
ing new jobs and commissions, creat
jrig now places for pets, and impos
ing new taxes, fees, licenses and
permanent burdens on tho taxpayers,
All candidates havo run on economy

In California, a Governor has been
elected who as stato treasurer has
resisted expansion policies, salary
raising and padding payrolls, and
his platform is business policies in

In Washington a new stato ad
ministrative system has abolished 71
boards and commissions and 284
stato employes in administrative sex
vice, making a direct saving of 1,
734,710 in the rmBt ten months, and
a yearly reduction in stato payrolls
A commission of prominent men
was named early in the year in Ore
gon to report on tho Washington aty
ministrativo system. Will they sub
mit a. report of any kind favorable
to reform on new lines, or will they
unhold tho nresent system which has
resulted in checking stato develop
ment? Tho peoplo demand a cut in the
total of tax rates, without weakening
tho efficiency of our state govern
ment, without abandoning a progres
sive highway system or impairing
our educational system.. Washington
has increased tlio efficiency of stale
government by an entirely new sys
tern. - t -.i i i .''
Millions of dollars taxes aro de
linquent in western states. Singlo
counties havo had to bid in fifty
thousand dollars of taxes on lands,
and continuing old methods will turn
this stata over to tho tender mercies
of socialism and communistic radic
Confiscatory taxes aro eating up
tho prosperity of tho producers and
the property of tho people. Contin
uation of such policies by an old
fashioned legislature will meet with
stern rebuke by tho people.
An inefficient machine-ridden leg
islature, organized on tho old lines,
pursuing old methods, with reckless,
careless, extravagant incompetent
leadership will not relieve the plight
of tho people, nor promote th de
velopment of industries or bring set
tlers to Utah.
Great promises were made during
the campaign as to what could bo cut
jfrom tho overhead of state expenses,
and there is a strong spirit of re
trenchment in many counties and
cities and budgets aro reduced from
estimates of '921, and sttaes esti
mates will bo reduced.
One stato authority estimates that
$250,000 a year can bo cut from the
administrative charges of state de
partments without lowering tho ef
ficiency of tho service.
It would bo possiblo before the
legislature meets for tho Governor
or any stato official to go over
every function of stato administra-i
tion and find just what it costs, what
money it earns and turns into tho
stato treasury, how many are cm
ployed and at what pay.
With theso facts in tho possession
.of tho Governor's office, that officer
could decido what might bo nbolish
'ed or reduced or consolidated with
somo other function, what salaries
might be reduced or increased, and
of tor receiving suggestions from tho
peoplo, publish tho same.

for cancer of the intestines. She was
buried at Toquervillo Dee. 15th. The
Stake Presidency, many bishops and
leading members from other wards
took part in tho funeral, which was
sad and beautiful, even tho men were
weeping, for she was loved and re
spected by all. She was a true and
noble woman, a devoted wife and
mother, a woman of high ideals and
strong dhnracter, a leader among her
sex. "Great shall be her reward, and
eternal shall bo her glory". For many
yenrs sho was on0 of the pioneer
telegraph operators in Dixie. For
nearly 22 years she was president of

THE TALKING DEALER.
By Walt Mason.
I went to Higg the hatter, to buy
a Sunday lid; he bored me with his
chatter, as merchants scljdom did.
Ho talked about tho weather, about
the crop of rye, and roundly asked
mo whether I voted wet or dry. Ho
talked about the kaiser vvho now in;
exile dwells, and thought he'd have
been wiser to cut out wedding bells.
Ho talked about the graces of .fe
males he 'could name; and spoko
about the races which are Tia
juana's game, I said, "Oh, Higg the
hatter, you send a pain through me,
for your remarks aro flatter than
any spiel should be. I've walked
through weary valleys, down loads
whoro autos skid, through dusty
streets and alley, to buy myself a
lid. I toiled along tho highway, and
up tho woodland aisle, and through
tho recking byway, to get myself a
tile. You should bo calm and quiet,
and place within my reach, a hat
that is a riot, a kelly that's a peach.
No idlo themes should enter tho
eloquence you throw, but all your
talk should cente upon tho grand
chapcau. Then, then you might per
suade me to blow fivo bones or four,
as it is, you'vo made mo resolve to
leave your store.''
