. TRUTH S J
CAN A CHRISTIAN HATE A MOR
Tho above question is asked by the
Inter-Mountain Republican. Now .to
Stlio law and tho testimony in re
gard to ths question.
Will tho Republican deny that Rev.
Lellich, Dr. Paden, Dr. Rift, Rev. Mr.
, -' Wishard, Rev. J. Wesley Hill, Rev.
Mr. Clemenson, Mrs. Schoff, Mrs. Du
bois and last but not least Mr. Chas.
Mostyn Owen, are Christians ? Do
these people hate a Mormon or do they
simply Ho and misrepresent him to
j tho good people of the east, to save his
so-called benighted soul 7
Are these not well known facts?
Mr. Lellich swore that Senator Smoot
was a polygamist and that state
J ment was sent -broadcast over the
i land to prejudice tho peoplo against
I Reed Smoot. Petition blanks inspired
I by tho majority of tho above named
1 Christians claiming that Reed Smoot
3 was a polygamist were passed around
f in nearly every Christian church In the
land for signatures asking his remov-
al from tho United States senate; the
protestants against Reed Smoot knew
that it was pre-arranged for Leulch
to mako his false affidavit, and for
tho rest of them to deny it, a few
' days after, knowng that their object
would be accomplished, in fact, follow
I lng the old adago that "falsehood is
j up and travels leagues before truth
has his boots on." For years tho
above named "Christians" havo been
telling tales, half truth and half lies,
which aro more damnable than com
plete lies; that tho Mormon spits on
i the American flag; that he Is a tra-
tor, and that Webster's dictionary does
not contain foul enough epithets to
hurl at him.
Will tho Republican say that the
I forenamed Christians do all the above
for love ? Is there no malice in their
i Is It malice or lovo to bear false wit
ness aganst your neighbor.
-Every one of the above aro guilty of
i bearing false witness against their
' neighbor Mr. Mormon. Tho doctrine
I of burning heathens to savo their souls
' has passed away, and Btands con-
damned as false and cruel. How much
( more damnable Is it In this enllght-
ene'd ago for men cloaked in the livery
I of heaven to blacken men's characters
l and steal their good reputations. If
you call the above named persons
Christians, Mr. Republican, it is pos-
slblo for not only a Christian to hate
a Mormon, but to wallow In the mire
of hell to injure him.

FEW GOOD MEERSCHAUMS HERE,
Americans To Not Make or Keep
Them Right. German Dealer Says.
"You don't see tho best meerschaum
pipes In this country," said a German
pipe dealer who learned his trade In
Vienna, to a Kansas City Star writer.
"Why? Reinuso tho Americans are
in too big a hurry. Haven't tlmo to
take care of a meerschaum haven't
even time to Karn how. When tho
American is through smoking ho
knocks his pipe on tho heel of his
shoe to remove the ashes, shoves It In
the most handy pocket and Is on tho
"Now, In tho old country, a man
takes his p'po seriously very seri
ously. Ho expects his meerschaum to
last him n lifetime and then bo in
good repair to hand down to his heir.
The pipe Is passed freni generation to
generation and it is always handled
as carefully as a now-born babe. Tho
smoker never touches the bowl whllo
it Is warm that would spoil the fine,
glossy color. When the German has
completed his serious and medltativo
smoke his pipo is laid very carefully
away, where it will cool properly and
without danger of scratching. Ho
does not ram It into his pocket with
other miscellaneous articles as tho
rushing American does. Ho takes his
time and gives It his care and attention.
"The best meerschaum pipes In tho
old country aro made of soft meer
schaum and are hand carved. Then
they aro boiled In" beeswax. The fino
color Is produced by tho wax and nico
tine combining. When the pipo is
smoked tho wax softens from tho heat.
That is why the pipe should not bo
touched while warm. Touching mars
The American manufacturer does
not carve or polish thorn by hand. Tho
work Is done by machines. The soft
meerschaum, if treated that way,
would break, so hard meerschaum, n
low grade, is used. Tho hard clay
will not absorb beeswax, so it Is boiled
in glycerin. Tho most beautiful colors
sannot be produced with glycerin."
Farming on the Yukon.
W. M. Swinehart has compiled for
publication tho results of his experi
ence in farming at .Fort Selkirk, and
these show that, taking one season
with another, tho crops raised'and tho
prices received for tho product aro
sufficient to cause tho averago farmer
In the states to look to tho north with
envy, says tho Seattlo Post-Intelligencer.
Oat hay, tho chief crop pro
duced, yields about three tons to the
aero and sells readily in tho spring at
from $1(10 to $125 per ton. Demand
has never been lacking for all tho hay
tho farm produces, since tho .Dawson
White Horse stage line, on which from
250 to 400 horses aro used every win
tor for several months, passes within
a few miles of tho farm. Potatoes
yield from " reo to five tons to tho
aero and bring as much as 25 cents a
pound. Tho average prico for a series
of years has been a fraction over 20
cents a pound. Rutabagas yield six
tons to tho acre and sell for G cents a
pound, or $720 an aero. Carrots yield
three tons to tho aero and soil for 15
cents a pound, a return of $900 per
aero. Cabbages vary In production to
season .ranging from three to eight
tons to tho acre, and tho price ranges
fconAldtoTsOcents a pound. It Is an
excb, ,,ial season when tho Swlno
