I PAYING WAR DEBTS.
Thro has been talk in this country of thf possibility of European
countries repudiating their vnr debts, but evidence accumulates to
prove that, though there ii much distress, none oi the first 'las na
tions, with perhaps tho exception of Russia, will default.
A surprising statement comes from PY.mre ti the effect that the
republic will moot all its obligations as th- fall dlie, including
Krance's share .f tlu- y.uhhxmhmi Anlo-Prencil lan due to the
United States a month hence.

Maurice Csaenave, director general of French service in the Unit
ed States, said, nwiiiK to economic and political obstacles to the en
forcement of the treaty of Versailles. Frame has received no cash
payment n indemnity from Germany. Furthermore, difficulties in
the Ruhr region have prevented Geermany from meeting her obli
gations t Prance in respect to coal deliveries
Mr Caecnave points out France improved hei trade balance by
nearly two billion francs, increasing her exports by nearly :!.')4,4m6 -ooo
fran x, or nb"nt 182 per cent, compared with the corresponding
period of 1919. The latest figures available show that during the
first six months of the current year the difference between her im
ports ud exports was reduced by nearly 29 pel cent, u hjeh would
indicate that if the improvement is maintained the exports and im
ports of France will balance before the end f 1922. Particular at
tention is called to the fact that the French budgel for 1920 not onlj
provides for balancing ordinary expenditures "lit nf taxation or or
dinary receipt-., but allocates a'si. out of ordinary receipts 9,400,
000,000 francs for interest on and amortization f ihe national debt
A- tnal returns from indirect taxation during dune of this year, Mr
Casenae said, exceeded budget estimates b 277,694,300 francR, or
41 per cent, the returns from indirect taxation in the first half of
this year being 180 per cent larger than those for the same period in
1!H4. It is understood that the tentative plans of the French gov
ernment for meeting its share (one-half) of the Anglo-French loan
contemplate the shipment to this country of approximately ."O,0OO,(MMi

I WITH MUFFLERS WIDE OPEN
Complaints are being received by the eitj authorities that iat
at nighl Thirtieth street and Grant avenue, lately paved, arc made
Speedways h motor drivers who, with mufflers wide open, keep
the neighborhood awake and endanger the lives of those who ar
on the high?! aj o
The speed fiend should be caught and made to realize thai he
must conform in sonic small degree t the rights of others Nothing
is more annoying t the nervous or sick who are m bed than to have
a roaring machine go by their homes in the late of hours of night
when rest is so desirable and essential.
Indifferent, reckless auto drivers jire g nuisance at any hour ot
the day, but they are a pest and an affliction when to their speed
ing they add nise v. hied is nerve-destroying.
m Down in Davis oouuty, where the cement highway has been
completed, this same complaint against disregard of the traffic law-,
is heard The offending has grown so serious that, the officers alone
the roadway daily arc making arrests.
Speaking of the announcement that 100 arrests for alleged
speeding along the boulevard in Davis count have been made, one
of the officials of the Utah state Automobile association said
"There are always some motorists who have no regard for oth
ers, who are absolutely lejfieh; and, fur one, i would 1 i k o to see jail
sentences imposed until tins class comes to realize that highways are
built for everybody and thai thej must respect the rights of others
The completion of s fyard-surfice highway between 'Ins city and
Dgden seems to have lured a great many speed demons to the disre
gard of safety, and Sheriff Nalder is taking a proper stand when
he attempts to choke this spirit before it has gained headway. Sher
iff Nalder has instructed his deputies to use discretion and to give
the motorist the benefit of any doubt. This seems fair. Hut those
-ho wantonly disregard safety should be .puled. I believe
Everyone who realizes thai the excessive speeding on the high
way is endangering the lives of nil who travel h automobile between
Ogden and Salt Lake, will endorse the sentiment that the "road
hog" should be jailed Before too late, motor travel in this city and
this part of I tali should be brought to a sane basis.
CANDY AND DRINK
When prohibition came to I'tah, there were many benefits de
rived by "ther industries, among which was the candy business.
Since national prohibition, the entire country has experienced much
the s.i me shifting of trade, but the secretary of the National Confec
tioners' association says that camlv is only fifth in the list of indue
tries which have gained hy prohibiton He says
"In point of benefits the industry has received, tri believe con-
fectionery ranks about fifth The industries which have received
greater benefits than our industry on ICCOUnt of prohibition are the
following: First, savings banks, second, soft drink industrv thud,
ice cream industry ; fourth, moving picture theaters I think it is
an unanswerable argument that some industries have been benefited,
but the theory advanced that men addicted to the use of alcohol
have become candy eaters since the advent of prohibition is based
entirely upon the wrong premises and is not logical. More candy is
being consumed because the people have more money to spend, not
B j alone for candy, but for everything else that the;, want that adds to
their comfort or pleasure."
The secretary of the confectioners may be right in his conclu
H Mons. but there is much proof in support of th statemenl that fox
mer tipplers find their appetite for Liquor has turned to a desire for
sweets and many a man who was a drinker and never touched eandj
now has a craving for the products of the confectioner
j OGDEN AND ITS NEIGHBORS
As one travels to the northeast of Ugden by motor tar, he real
H ires that the farming season is much earlier in the Great Salt Laki
haain than in Cache, Bear Lake and Star valleys.
H In Star valley the harvest is nor yet on In Bear Lake the inow-
H ers sre just starting and in parts of Cache the harvest hands have
not reached the threshing.
m- ; This difference m climate accounts for the fact that all that
H country depends on this district for its fruits At present water
H melons and canteloupeH are being shipped fram Ogden to that re-
H j Star valley gets Ogden fruits egetable and canned SjOOdSL and
w sends in return butter, eheese and the finest of livestock. The' eon-
M?-. tsct is most profitable for both, and makes for the prosperity of n
wide stretch of country.

HAS A STORY
ALL ITS 0WN
I The beautiful lily Is symbolic of
purity and majesty It 1 dedicated
to Easter, the festival of flowers
The ancients consecrated It to Juno
and held this flower In hlh esteem
The Hebrews used the lily motif ex
tensively In the architecture of the
temple of Solomon, and It Is mention
ed frequently in the Old Testament.
Wil l, nitlX. MHIM.TH.
A superstition says that If one picks
j the first lily one sec. It will bring
great strength and faith. Another sup
erstition Is that If a girl picks a red
Illy, she will become freckled. To test
the love of her sweetheart, another
tradition says, a girl should plant a
Illy bulb and with It bury the name
of her lover As the plant grows strong ,
and straight, or weak and Indifferent,:
so will her sweetheart's love be.
The ancients believed It to have
I many medicinal properties. It was j
I used as an antidote against snake bites'
nnd poeion. and a hair restorative w
made from the roots, boiled in olive 1
oil. Not only as medicine was this
plant used, but the eastern countries '
have always utilized the roots and
stalks of the plant as food.
