STOP TALKING POVERTY.
1 Duane Beyerlec urges every one to get the smiling habit. He
"No matter how hard your lot may seem, how much you think you
1 have to make vou discouraged, or how dark the clouds may look from
jour viewpoint, cheer up! A better day will dawn for you, u you
desire it and will do your part. It rests with you and you alone. I o
morrow will be brighter than today has been, if you will make it so.
You will gather what you sow. Don 't sow frowns and clouds and
expect to harvest smiles and sunshine,
i "Smile, it's a habit that pays.
.j You are the architect of your own career. Just as long as you
! think you have 'hard luck,' just so long as you talk 'hard luck' and
poverty, just so long will these be your constant companions."
That is excellent advice. Just at present a number of our Rc
r publican newspaper editors, who are predicting calamity if Woodrow
f .Wilson does not listen to their advice, would do well to get the smil
ing habit and begin to speak and write hopefully of the great Amen.

L BIBLE IS REVISED.
I The Baptist Publication society has provoked much adverse crit-
' icism by the revised Bible which has been issued by the society. An
attempt has been made to present the Bible in the English language
of today and to eliminate all antiquated words, but there are many
; ministers, even within the Baptist church, who object to the modern-
J izing of the Book of Books.
' 1 "Adam" and "Eve," named as the founders of the human race
1 in the King James version, gives way in the new Bible to the terms
I "man" and "woman." Such words as "loveth" and "leadeth" are
1 replaced by "love" and "lead." "SVhere hell is referred to in the six-
I teenth chapter of St. Luke the word "underworld" is substituted.
Portions written in poetry in the old Bible are printed in their verse
Other changes in the new version are:
I "Use of the phrase "carved image" instead of graven image" in
I the first commandment.
li I Placing of the word "immerse" in parenthesis besides the word
" I "Substitution of the phrase "great fish" for the word "whale"

m TURKEY SHOULD BE CRUSHED.
,sThe Greek warships and transports carrying Bulgarian and
W Servian troops have started for the Dardenelles and the Bulgarian
1 heavy artillery is once more hammering at the Tchatalja forts.
m The Christian world would rejoice if the unspeakable Turk
' -were driven into Constantinople and across the Bosphorus to Asia
Lji Minor, not because the Turk is not Christian, but owing to the
Jf ; fact that he has been a murderer wherever he has ruled and his
ft. , treatment of those, not of his faith, is barbarous.
7 i All that part of the Balkan states which has been under Turk-
f ' , iah control, has been the scene of rapine, massacre and other forms
; of outrage, and now there is every reason to hope that the long
period of atrocities is drawing to a close, and the peace of a better1
i civilization is about to take possession of Macedonia and neighbor-
l ing territory.
J ' This has been one of very few wars that might be classed as
" i justifiable. Had the European powers been so disposed, they could
have forced the Turk to treat the Christians of the Balkan states
and of territory direotly under Turkish rule with fairness, but
jealousies prevented until at last the Christian sufferers were
themselves driven to a recourse to arms, and today those valiant
soldiers are fighting, not purely for conquest or territorial aggrand-
I izement, but for the privilege to live as the people of other civilized
So far the god of war has favored the allies. Until they met
j, the resisting power of the forts of Tchatalja, the soldiers of Bul-
f garia marched southward almost unobstructed. The crucial stage of
the war has been reached. If the Bulgarians can enter Constanti
nople, the war will terminate with the breaking of an uninterrupted
depotisin dating from 1453.
The temporary halting of the victorious army at the forts had
encouraged the Turks to such an extent as to cause them to reject
the terms of the first armistice which they solicited. Now it is for
the allies to make the terms more onerous, if success finally crowns
s The Powers will endeavor to save the Turks from complete hu-
T initiation, but the allies have the whip hand while their troops are in
the field and they should make the terms of peace so drastic that
the Christians of no part of Europe shall ever again have cause to
fear the murderous cry, "Allah I"
' CHRISTMAS FOLLIES.
Christmas is approaching. Not every one views Christmas with
I unadulterated pleasure. While it is a period of good cheer, and love
Iand friendship, it also is a time of worriment and even heartaches for
those Avho aim to make presents to all their close relatives and
friends and have not the means to do so. Thousands of dollars are
t spent wastefully, foolishly by extravagant givers. The wife buys the
husband a piece of useless jewelry, the husband presents his helpmate
t with an expensive manicure sot. Presents of that kind are duplicated
over and over, and vyithin month ofter the exchange of affectionate
remembrances, the junkman could obtain the encumbrances for a
i fraction of the original cost.
k Thi.s useless expenditure at Christmas time has become recognized
; as misdirected generosity, and so societies are being organized to ec-
rect the extravagance. Lately Mrs. August Belmont and Miss Anne
Morgan, two women of wealth who have seen the folly of useless giv
ing, have formed a society known as the "Society for the Prevention
of Useless Giving." Mrs. Belmont, in urging the wisdom of such a
i course, said it was simply folly fora girl earning $S a week to spend
ft money on Christmas gifts. Generous folly, if you will, but still ioliv
j$3 that is not redeemed by the generosity. .
$1 a r A Writer' comnieating on the new society, says, "Christmas Is a
f$ 1 delightful season ; it is still our finest festival. It's a pitv we have to
i , 1 spoil it every year by painful calculations and by balancing loss
against gain. It's a pity, in other words, that w have to pay so much

THE COST OF LIVING.
The car employes of Chicago, in requesting an advance in wages,
have presented a comparative table of tha cost of living, in which fig
ures are produced to prove that the advance in wages has not kept
pace with the increasing cost of the necessaries of life.
A bulletin from the United Slates bureau of labor gave the retail
prices of food in this country from 1S90 to June of this year. Tho
lowest prices were in 1SD6, and the highest in May, 1012. There had
been an advance in foodstutfs of 54.G per cent.
Some of the prices paid in the Chicago market for foodstuffs in
August, 1912, in comparison with the cost of similar articles in Au
gust, 1909, follow: -- -'. ""

The government report takes fifteen articles which, it states, rep
sen ts approximately two-thirds of the expenditure for food of the
average workman's family. Fourteen of the fifteen articles, it sets
forth, were higher in price on June 15, 1912, than on June 15, 1911.
The percentage of increase varies from 2A for milk to 18.6 for round
steak. Nine of the fifteen articles advanced more than 10 per cent
during the year.
Figures obtained from a wholesale establishment in Rochester,
X. Y., shows that out of a list of 225 items in canned goods 143 have
advanced, 67 remained stationary, and 11 have decreased since Au
No wonder that the problem of the cost of living comes home to
all of us who are not rich, and that the housewives of Ogden, through
the Woman's Department of the Standard, arc studying the question
in all its details.
LABOR NEWS OP
'Frisco unions employed in the gar
ment making Industry are planning
the organization of a district council.
The proposed council will include the
Independent Tailors' union, Journey
men Tailors' union, Garment Cutters'
union, Independent Ladies' Tailors'
union. Cloakmakers union and United
Garment Workers' union.
The twelfth biennial report of the
Minnesota labor bureau made two
years ago, showed that over 10,000
persons wore killed or Injured in tho
industries of that state in one year.
The labor department believed that
this number could and should be ma
terially reduced. As a result of its
activity to this end and the co-operation
it receded from the employers,
there has been a reduction of 23.G per
cent in fatal accidents and of 28.6 per
cent in non-fatal accidents during tho
last two years. ,
Organized labor has increased
wages, has shortened the workday of
millions of men and women. It has
ahanged tho tollers from servile crea
tures to Independent and self-reapect--ng
citizens. It is responsible for all

New York, Nov. 25. Cardinal Far
ley in an official account of his four
week's visit to tho west, published In
the current issue of tho Catholic News,
says that everything be saw was a
"revelation to him."
"This was the first time," ho states,
'that I was further west than St. Paul.

traveled something new was revealed i

Referring to Salt Laku City, tho
cardinal says ''Mormonism, as far
