A day last week The Standard-Ex

work of the automotive masher and!
quoted from a San Francisco paper
to show how desperat. . Minis wire'

I HOW TO START A
FIRE IN THE STOVE.
In a campaign intended to reduce
the smoke nuisance, Salt Lake City
has employed an expert and the news
papers are beginning to co operate in
the effort to lift the smudge which
hangs over the city
One of the first moves has been the
Issuing of instructions as to starting
fires In the stoves of tne homes.
1 The old way of starting a fire was
H to place paper, then kindling, then
. a coal. The 8alt Lake smoke nuisance
J committee has informed the house
, owners that this is wrong. Here are
J the instructions:
J Clean grates thoroughly and ad-
S just dampers for full draft,
j Cover grates wtih coal to a
3 depth of two inches, using small
Si sizes., such as nut, egg, or lumps
1 that have been broken up.
1 Place small amount of paper on
coal, cover with kindling and
jj light paper.
In recharging the fire
.1 Shake out ashes.
.J Fire fresh coal on low side of
;a fuel bed.
At time of next charging, repeat
process, firing coal on opposite
;JB side of fire pot.
Never cover all live coals with
;jft fresh coal.
ifm The theory back of the foregoing la
i'M that heat applied to the coal causes
'"H the liberation of gases. If the fuel Is'
' placed on top of the paper and kin
dling, the gases In great part escape
without being attacked by the flames
With the coal beneath the paper and
wood, the volatile gases instantly are
brought in contact with tho fire nnd
The firing on one side and Ihen the
other is for the same purpose the ex
posed live COBll having dlren notion
on the released carbon.
If every home in Ogden will ob
serve this simple principle of fire mak
ing. much of the smoke seen In this
city in early morning will be eliminated.
STARVING TO DEATH
An appeal has been received by the
mayor of Ogden, asking aid for the
starving people of that part of Chlm

GREECE IS TO HAVE
Greece has voted to have former
King Conatontine returned to the
Creek throne. In a plebiscite on Sun
day, the people, by an overwhelming
majority, called the king back.
This action is offensive to the allied
powers, because King f'onstantine was
a plotter against the allies during th
dark days of the mighty struggle for
a free world. He is pnrt of the Hoh
enzollern family and may be expee'e.

Reports Sent in by Varied
By II. N. RICKEY,

GENEVA. Efarltxerland, Dec 7. The
assembly has entered Its third and
final phase, and present indications ar
that h will conclude lt labors and ad"!
JOUrn by December 15
The first phase was devoted to or
ranl7.fttlon and the setting up Of the,
necessarily complicated machinery
which would make U possible for th
representatives of fom -one nations,!
Speaking some fifteen language tol
Chiefly, this machinery consists of
ptx committees on each of which every
nation has a representative.
The subjects before the assembly for
discussion nnd action were divided
among these committees.
The second phase was the meotlmrs1
of thesr committee! which have k i'
the delegates busv dnv and nipht 'or
the past ten davs.
Mi AMEXDM1 Vis SEEN
The third phase consists of plenary!
ses-slons of the assembly to receive the
reports of the committees and act upon
No amendments will be made to the,
covenant now. it seems to be the!
unanimous sentiment of the delegates!
that the covenant should be amended
In several particulars but that aa th'
league Is less than a year old. as the
proposed amendments have not been
ufflclently thought out, it would be
wlr-- to ilefer action.
Th,- point was also pressed byl
Balfour that the covenant and tho I
treaty are so interwoven that amend
ments to the former at this time might
give Germany a chance to raise em-j
Dafrosslhg questions as to the latter.'
The commltiei'K have all gotten farl
enough along In their work to make
II possible to forecast, with reasonable
accuracy, at this time, what the net I
result of the first session of the as
sembly will be in order of Importance!
the future peace of the world ls
; to be affected.
i RT T oil't LSORY.
The ratification by the assembly of 1
the plan for a permanent court of in-1
ternatlonal Justice conies first The'
committee having this In hand Is still
at work It has before It the report
Of the council embodying the plan for'
.m International court as drafted at I
tne Hague by the commission of whl. .!
Bllhu Boot was a member.
The council amended the original
-ir.ift by taking from the court, '.he
t power to force a nation before the
, court at the demand of another na
tion. The committee and the assemb
ly will undoubtedly accept this coun-l
ll amendment, although most of the!
smaller nations want the court to have I
There may be a few other minor
changes In the Original Hague plan.l
but In the main, the work will stand,
and the governments of tho world will'
, be asked by tho assembly to enac,
j the necessary legislation to have the
permanent court of International jus-J
tlco become the accepted mode for the
m ttlemenl of disputes, which, if un
Bettled, may lead to war.
This would be the longest step for
ward In the direction of world peace
that has ever been taken, and of lt-
self, would more than Justify the for-1
matlon of the league and this session
of the assembly,
Tin: question of limitation of arma-j
ments Is probably next in importance!
W hile It is not probable that any
i positive action will be taken, there IS
no doubt that the exhaustive study
ind discussion of the subject by the
greatest minds Of the assembly have!
laid the foundations for a formula for
armament limitation This vitally lm-i
portant matter will remain in the
hands of the permanent military, nav
' al and air commission for further
study and report.
I s. voi BOUND.
The Lnlted States has been asked
to take part In this commission with-',
out being bound by It. If It accepts, i
it Is generally felt thai this most dlffi-'
cult of problems will be nearer solu-
It has been decided to admit Ans-1
, tria to tin- league, and Bulgaria will'
also probably be admitted. This a
chiefly important as establishing a
precedent as to tiTmnnv.
The action of the assembly In secur
ing the consent of the I'nited Stales'
I to mediate between stustapha Eternal!
mil the Armenians is considered by :
delegates, among them I.ofd Robert
Cecil, as ;m accomplishment of the
I first Importance, both In its human!
tartan aspects and as It affects the'
ultimate settlement of the many per-1
plexmg problems of the Near Kast.
Even should this mediation fail,
Cecil and others point out that the'
league, having once undertaken rhe
t.-Lsk of saving the Armenians, must
(and will rind other means.
The sending of an International
army to Vllna to act as a police dur
ing the plebiscite which will decide a
very dangerous question between Po-1
' land nnd Lithuania establishes a pre-1
1 cedent as to league authority and
willingness to assume responslbillu .
the future value of which can hardly
j be e er-esiimsted.
