But though it is not always the rich, it is the uncommon man
who has clung to his hobby. A supreme court justice may stiek to

I THE BOND ELECTION
Before departing upon his vacation Mayor Frank Francis an
aounced that he would soon submit to the taxpayers of Ogden the
proposition of voting for bonds with which to build, among other
things, a municipal electric light pLant.
There seems to be a strong demand in man quarters for the
city to establish such a plant A few years ago the real estate men
of Ogden urged such action and since then other organizations hae
been agitating for a municipal power plant.
Mayor Francis proposes to bring the matter to a direct issue.
Whether or not the taxpayers want a municipal electric light plant
can be detennined at the bond election If they do they will vote for
the bonds and if they do not the bond election will fail.
I SOURCES OF WATER
An automobile trip along the highway toward Brigham City re
teals a number of recently sunk wells from which valuable irriga
tion streams are obtain' d by means of an electric pump
After one leaves the Hot Springs the new wells are to bo ob
served on the left side of the road. They have been dug down a
distance of 40 or 50 feet to the water, then lined with concrete and
an electrical pump placed near the water surface. When water is
needed for irrigation the power is turned on and the pump forces a
steady and generous stream up a five or six inch pipe.
The water is clear, cold and tasteless and seems to be solving an
irrigation problem for many farmers whose fields adjoin the state

the way to eat roast in' oars.
Head waiters, even, don't dare to smile any more. For the very,
very best hotels supply funny-looking harpoons, that you stick in the

all sts own
The sunflower is the symbol of
constancy and adoration
In ancient Peru, the sunflower
was much reverenced because of the
sun-worship which was then preval
ent. The Spanish invaders Introduced
It to Madrid. It Was extensively
ralced b the Indians who used the
soeds for fnod.
In Russia, the sunflower Is widely
cultivated. The seed is used for
food or for making oil. The oil cake
is fed to horses and cattle while the
stalks are used for fuel. In China,
a beautiful silk is made from the
fiber of the stalks.
CHANGED INTO FLOKEF
A Greek legend tells of the origin
of the sunflower and why it is the
symbol of constancy and adoration.
Clytle was n beautiful water nymph
Ono day she left her home among
the waves and went to Olympus
where she saw Apollo, the sun-god,
and fell wildly In love with him
Apollo howeer, was enamored ol
Calliope, the muse of epic poetry,
and paid no attention to Chile. So
she tat on the ground gazing at tho
sun until it dropped beyond the hori

pined away, refusing to return home.

to Northwest Pea Fields
BOISE, Ida., Aug. 3 How south
western Idaho ran Increase tho profit
of farming In the Spokane Inland em
pire, and how the inland empln- . in
inerease the profit of farming in
southwestern Idaho is outlined in a
statement by William Kerr awlne spe
cialist of the University of Idaho ex
tonHlon dl lston. who says that the
SOUth Idaho farmers can grow stock
hogs profitably to supply the needs of
the northern wheat formers for a
mean of saving tho waste on pea
crops that the latter grow. Instead of
summer fallowing their wheat fields.
Wheat farming In the Spokane sec
tion depends Increasingly on the ufc
of field pea crops to restore fertility
to the soli, says Mr. Kerr. He points
out also that the southern Idaho hog
Industry depends on finding a nearby
market. The inland empire farmers
have paid high pikes for hogs to glean
their peas but are not able to grow
tl elr own hogs early enough to supply
the need on account of weather condi
tions. The lower valleys of southern
Idaho, on the other hand, can easily
buy late February and Maich pigs on
i he rnorket.
Co-operation between farmers of the
two sections both n selling and In buy
ing thejr hogs In carload lots Is sug
gested by Mr. Kerr as offering an
unusual opportunlt for mutual bene
fit in the two sectlona
GROWING PORK FOR PROFIT,
The irrigated farms of southern
Idaho are well adapted to production
of hogs," says Mr. Kerr. However,
under present prevailing prices of
grain and present systems of hog pro
duction and marketing, thin form of
livestock husbandry has not been ery
profitable The year 1919 represented
the largest exports of pork this coun
try ever shipped and Indications point
conclusively to necessity of reduction
In the total number of hogs produced
In the United States, for wo cannot
expect this export trade, to be as good
In the future. T!i1h naturally Indi
cates the necessity of hogs being
giown under conditions that enable
ih-lr production to be made at a
profit Advantage should be taken,
therefore, of all conditions tending to
make the Industry profitable.
' The economical production of hogs
for market naturally divides Itself Into
two distinct periods tho growing pe
riod and the finishing period. The
glowing period extends from the time
the sow is bred until the pigs weigh
100 to 120 pounds each, while the fin
ishing period the hogs Increase In
weight from 100 or 120 pounds up to
the marketable size of 175 to 225
"The latter period must be spent in
a district whore thore is a surplus of
some form of concentrated gialn Hogs
will not generally pay the freight on
grains shipped from long distances,
but must be used as a means of mar
keting surplus grains in the more con
centrated form A very large percent
age of the hogs marketed from Irri
gated farms have been finished re
gardless of the assurance of loss in
the transaction. If farmers on Irri
gated farms had continued to grow
hogs and planned to ship them co
operatively to sections of country that
demanded them, there has hardly been
a time during the last three years that
hog production would not have been
a profitable buulness
"Before we" contemplate an Increase
In stock hop: production we must look
for a market where stock hogs can be
finished economically. Southwestern
Idcho can readily find this demand
by supplying stock hogs for the pea
grain fields of the Inland enlplre sur
toundlng and adjacent to Spokane.
FINISHING HOGS ON PEA FIELDS.
"Practical demonstrations In many
of the large wheat growing sections of
the inland empire have .shown that
winter wheat following field peas out
yields the winter wheut following sum
mer fallow. Years of wheat growing
under summer fallow methods have
gradually consumed the available hu
mus of the grain sections, so that the
soil falls to consero onough moisture
to tide the grain crop over critical
periods. Some leguminous) crop must
to brought Into the rotation to sup

cal tests show the power of the field

must be used for finding a market'
for tho pea crop.
'No other animal can make as prof-!
liable use of pas as can tho modern j
porker, properly developed in size and j
form on alfalfa pasture, skim milk1
and grain. On of the greatest ex
penses of producing the peas is the,

This the hog will do more efficiently I
than any other farm machine In
fact he Is so efficient that much of
the profit of pea production Is lost un
less the peas shattered In harvesting

whom Mr. Burley caught in western
Nebraska. Another capture which he
managed alone was a horse thief,
whom he traced from Omaha to Ar
kansas. He found his man there with
a crowd of confederates. Mr Burley
I had to deal with but one, however,
but he wanted that one He found his I
miin in the crowd and pulled him out!
by force, holding tho others at bay
with a revolver. He led his man to a

I across and then successfully took him
prisoner back to Omaha, where he was
