iMjj Editor Standard: It takes an cn
tjjjj terprlsing newspaper sometimes to
m help us sec ourselves as others see
M us; so I found when my friends urged
I rae to enter tho contest. I shall have
1 to begin at tho beginning to tell my
: story properly, in order to lot oth
ers seo what ca"n bo done with a
"J small salary, If one goes the right
ijgl way about it. 1 married my present
RJj husband six and one-half years ago.
fig Ho had ono child, I "had two. Ho
K was getting $15 a week and we had
1 a chance to buy two small houses
J right in town for eleven hundred and
tj fifty dollars, pay like rent, with ln
jJJ tercst S per cent. As I had tho
Ml liousohold furniture, we did that. One
13 j house was rented for $7.60, which
Helped us pay the interest. We be
gan right away to improve the places
by papering and painting each house,
putting In water, putting up fences
and gates. We built two coal houses
and other buildings, dug a cellar, put
i in lawns and lights for both "houses,
jJjy my "husband doing all tho work him
?Sf solf nights and early mornings and
on Sundays, with the exception of the
It' lighting. Then we bought a piano.
Ir Then a baby was born. My daughter
It took vocal and Instrumental lessons,
If paying for her own tuition. We
l bought a range and several other
W pieces of furniture. And now today
we have our property all paid for.
II have never at any lime gotten
moro than $15 a week from my hus
band, and very often less. Now I
have two children at home and am
getting $10 rent for the house next
door. I pay $2 for phone, $1.50 for
lights, $i for milk and cream. $5.70
for Insurance. Our taxes have been
from $27 to $33, and one year $35, this
year $37, water rent, $14.50.
I pay cash for all I buy. 1 keep
a few "chickens, which cost 35 cents
a week to keep. I get eggs, enough
to cock with at this time of year,
PI but have had plenty to eat all sum
iij mer. In the first season I watch
J3 the markets and try to Get at the
p stores sioout closing time so that I
& cet my small fruits for a good deal
'& , less than if I ordered over the phone
3' 'in the morning Consequently I
5! have my cellar full of pickles and
If catsup and fresh fruit, jellies and
jams enough to last till the return of
m tho fruit season.
'j I make it a point to buy all Ogden
a made goods. My one extravagance Is
'2 butter. I buy three pounds of Blaneh
51 ard evcrj week. I buy the best I can.
S Always use cane sugar.
I economize on meat, not using the
best. I get a rump roast at 35 or -10
S cents or a leg of mutton or lamb at
50 or 60 cents and roast It with pota
S toes for Sunday, have It cold for sup
A per and on Monday as it is wash day
1ft Then I fix it up for Tuesday, cither
S in hash or stew with dumplings, or
gf grind it and make a nice little meat
& turn-over with a rich crust.
We seldom If ever have a dinner
without a dessert I mako a nice sal-
1 ad dressing which only costs about 15
wj cents for a quart, or 10 cents in tho
pf summer, and it keeps Indefinitely.
jjjj I buy my groceries In small quanti
jv titles so that I can pay cash from
z2 wek to week, the weeks that I do
not have to meet the light, telephone
yh and insurance.

Editor Woman's Department Eve
ning Standard: I have been reading
your crusade on high cost of living
I fear you will have to adopt stronger
measures than talking to the house
wlfo of Ogden. My husband only
gets $2 per day. That means $54 per
month. We have three children and
we bank a little money every, month
and we pay S per cent Interest on
$1,000 mortgage on our home which
means nearly $7 a month interest or
rent and we reduce that mortgage
from $S5 to $110 every year. How do
we do it? My husband" says It is his
wife that does it I don't think so,
but I know I am doing my sharo. 1
never could make both ends meet. If
I were as oxtravagant as ray neigh
bor. Just now, whilo I am writing
this by neighbor has thrown out a
plate full of mush left over from the
breakfast. My neighbor has only two
children and her husband gets over
$125 per month. They pay $22 to
$30 rent and are in debt I take the
mush left over from breakfast and
slice a quarter of an inch thick and
dip It in beaten egg and fry it in
bacon fat, also a "left ovef," and
servo it hot. Pour golden or maple
syrup over it and you have a dish
for either breakfast or suppor that
is more nourishing than double the
weight of meat or any so-called
broakfast foods. Let the housewife
use a little sense In cooking, Because
portorhouso steak is high, does not
mean that ub poor people must buy
it. Our family buys oatmeal, rice and
graham flour "by the sack. These three
articles, pound for pound, will make
more rich, red blood than any animal
food on the market
I feel sorry for many of our women,
thev know so little as to what is
goo'd to eat. My brother's wife gets
her meals in twenty to forty min
utes, but always bacon, steak, bacon,
steak; the Bamo thing over and over,
dav after day. They have indiges
tion and Blckness all the time. We
have never had any sickness and my
children are strong and plump and
rosy cheeked. Those of us who are
poor can not afford to ape tho rich
who have monev to pay .for medicine
and doctors, and therefore we should,
confine ourself to wholesome food
that will keep us healthy
1 could go in my neighbor's house
and save $G0 a month, yet I would be
Insulted should X offer my services.

Burley. Idaho. Nov IS. 1912
Editor Standard. I read in your
paper the other day an editorial ask
ing what had become of the Sallnc
Burley cutoff. This certainly is an
interesting question, "What has be
come of it?" From your editorial I
glean tho fact that It has been almost
two years since this proposition was
put on foot As I have been In Burley
during that time, I would like to tell
j'ou some of what I have seen while
here regarding this proposition.
The railroad people came out here
In tho winter of 1911 and worked up
a deal with Burle Commercial club
to get a rlght-of-wav as soon as pos
sible, so that the road could bo put
through without delays. It did not
take long to get right-of-way. as
nearly every one was in favor of thc
road and all were willing to do the
right thing by the railroad In tho way
of selling lands for right-of-way and
the railroad In turn was desirous of
doing the right thing by the people In
the way of paying the right price for
tho land and the damages dono, and
thiB being tho case things moved
along very nicelv and tho right-of-way
was obtained. The railroad com
pany let the contract for toe con
struction of the first sixty miles of
grade to ho ready for track laying bv
October 17. 1911.
When October first came there was
considerable of the grade ready for
tho ' rails but thero were some large
cuts, part of which wcrr rock work,
and the contractors had not been able
to get them finished As I recall, tho
rails had not been recelcd at Burley 1
by October first, but It was not long)
after until rails began to como In, and
ties and posts for fencing the right-of-way
were in the jiards at Burley.
Then there was a rush made by the
grading companies io complete the j
work, but. before this was accom- J
pllshed, winter set in and It would
have been at gieat disadantage to
the railroad to have then laid the
rails. The rails were unloaded and
piled up as fast as they arrived and
wo all thought that just as soon as
tho good spring weather came, we
would see those rails laid that at
least bv the middle of June the first
sixty miles would l' completed; but
alas, Just as everything was in readi
ness to start the work and everybody
w?s enthusiastic over the road, an
injunction was filed bv the United
States Reclamation sorvicc prcont
ing the railroad from going on. As
the railroad is like anv other busi
neis institution the company could
not let Its money lay idle In materials
not In use. so hauled most of the
rails to other parts of the system.
Then tlv question arose. What was to
be done with the injunction? Burley,
through hard efforts had secured
enough acreage of sugar beets to
warrant the Amalgamated Sugar com
pany putting up a factory at Burlcv
and many of tho farmers who had
contracted for beets wsre depending
on this road to haul them to tho fac
tory. Un'eF" thev got the road, they
would lose that part of their crop as
thev could not possibly haul their
beets from eight to fourteen miles
Then tho reason for the injunction
haJ to como out. The railroad had
bought the land from tho homestead
ers, many of whom had made their
final proof, and paid for It Through
a demand made to dissolve thc In
junction the fa-:t was disclosed that
things are figured down so fine In
tho reclamation service that the 'gov
ernment must have pay for tho wa
ter right or tho construction charges
for ditches constructed which were
to provide water for the land taken
up by the right-of-way. When It
came to this, that the farmer or the)
railroad had to nay for this water
right, the railroad consented to pay
the amount and settle the thing, but
oven this did not fulfill the exacting
demands of the reclamation service.
Thc government wanted the railroad
to put In siphons, water boxes, etc ,
for ditches which crossed tho tracks
or which the reclamation might wish
at any future time.
The railroad company acted fairly
In this deal and promised the recla
mation service that It would put In
every siphon, headgatc and water
way the reclamation service had bluo
printed at tho time the rails were
laid, but would not pay for any after
the rails were laid, which would
mean that any new ditches crossing
the track would havo to bo provided
by the reclamation service.
This was a very fair offer of the
railroad people because the land to be
wattered below the track Is a very

as this There was a further Investi
gation and again tho railroad accept
ed a proposition which is" a losing one
and that hai a stipulation to be al
lowed to lay twelve miles of the road
in order to take care of the promises
made during the" winter of 1912 that
the road would be ready to handle tho
beet crop. After this stipulation was
made the railroad was soon laying
mils and the twelve miles Is now down
and farmers are able to harvest their
crop of beets and get them to the fac
tory It ceems strange that thc one great
thing thc reclamation service should
have encouraged is blocked and
thereby it has been made almost Im
possible for tho homesteader to raise
money with which to pay his water
rental and reap enough from his crop
to obtain support for I1I3 family dur
ing the coming winter.
There are rails arriving in Purler
almost every day. and I am of the
opinion that the railroad would, be
putting them down but for the In
junction of the reclamation Bervlce
Not only has the Minidoka south
side project suffered on account of
the delay of this road, but tho people
In Raft Itlvcr valley have lost much.
They are now hauling their grain 40
miles and some of them 50 miles to
Burley when the distance to the Bur-ley-Sallno
cutoff would havo been lcs'
than one-third Then again, there Is
a general loss to the holo commun
ity here on the failure of the road to
be completed. There has been a
great car shortuge this fall und It has
tnxed the Short Lino to the limit to
tike care of the bounteous crops of
this section. For one, I feel that thero
would have been a great saving to the
Oregon Short Line had the company
have been able to ship over the Bur-ley-Sallne
cutoff all the cars which
have been sent from this section load
ed with products for Ogden and Salt
An investigation would show that
thero has been many a train taken
around by Pocatello into Salt Lake
aud Ogdeu which would have been
delivered over thc Burley-Salino cut
off In less than half the time it took
thc other way A direct line east andi
west places Burley almost directly
west of McCammon. Ida., and I would
say that Burley is no further from Og
den than from Pocatello. Yours truly,

MAY STAY ON BOND
' DESPITE PROTESTS
Logan. Nov 20 A nice question
that has arisen here Is disturbing,
the minds of some local financiers 1
and buslnoss men.
Philo Austin, Cache county treas
urer, has withdrawn his account from
the First National bank of this city
and transferred it to Thatcher Bros.'
Austin was elected as a Republi
can and has served one term, thc
local "machlno" denying him a re
nomination. He at once accepted the
nomination on the Bull Moose ticket
and announced at that timo that ho
would change his account. Ho did
nothing, howevor. until a day or two
ago. As soon as his Republican
bondsmen learned of what ho had
done they endeavored to have him H
reconsider his action, and. falling, tjl
notified the county commissioners M
that they Intended withdrawing from ' H
Austin's bond A whole pouch of such M
notices have been received, but thc IH
county commissioners show a dispo- jH
sitlon to disregard them, saying the M
bond is good enough for them and H
they seo no good reason for fussing H
Of courset this Is Irritating and IH
somewhat alarming to the bondsmen, IH
and some of them are getting work- IH
ed up over it, from all reports, as no H
one soems to know exactly how they H
can get off that bond. H
