Jlo convenIng ot the wool growers
Lt Ogden this week Is U meeting or
mUch Ilenllcancc
Wool is or should be the basis o
IhI clothIng ot the people This coln
try has unusual tnclltl tor the pro
duction ot wool and It would seem
natural to believe that we should 110
duce most of the wool required I the
home malltet
Unforlllltel thIs Is not the case
The domestIc product falls tar short
oC the home consumpton And various
theories have been advanced to uccount
for tho tact that thIs country procJucel
n smaller nllo ot wool per capita than
do nest ot the tr more thIckly set
tIed countries ot EUrope I
le counties Eurole
Undoubtedly too much reliance has
been placed by the average wool grow
er upon the bunt ot Jtureupon the
range nne the open unoccupied lands
ns a means oC pasturuge und even 01
I wInter ceding Wih t1e cllhlell

When whiter feedIng and private stim

eern that only lie best producing
breeds ot anlmnls will Ila although
the inferIor Idnd nlMo yIeld much thorn
of a chip when I < fnlnrl fed In wInter
and safely pastured In summer than
when the flock 15 exposed on the wide
public domain In such 1 wlnlr for
Inttuneo as the present one
The method or wool production most
commonly employed In this country
that Is br simple relIance on the pub
lc lands tor pnsturge whIle Il his
often yielded extraordinary gains for a
series of years his too frequently beer
subject to correspondIngly heavy loses
In bad years und so the Industry htul
lacked that clement or certaInty for
small Investors which I might other
wise have possossed
Ve note Wil approval the move
ments made by the headers In this In
dustry to overcome lie disadvantages
that follow Iho restriction of the range
by takIng up land for pasturage and
of many other to Improve the strains

A peculIar result ot the limitation of
our homo luPJI ot wool conies 10
our attention In one oC todays ex
changes relating to the substitutIon ot
cotton for woolen underclothing
Leslcs Weekly discusses the questIon
whether wool cotton or linen should
be worn next to the skin and decides
In favor or cotton The opinIon oC
medical men Il says has radIcally
changed In recent years and now
many If hot most doctors favor cotton
or lnen next the skin I says
9Vool absorbs perspiratIon and re
lalns It It absorbs It with dlmcul at
first but surrenders It to the iurround
log all with even greater dllcul
Cotton on the other hand asks only
un opportunity to dry which I docs
as mpldly ns PossIble The best plan
In cold weather 15 10 wear cotton or
linen next the skin with wool outer
clothing The wool excludes moisture
and cold while the cotton absorbs the
per lrton qulclt and dries oven
more qUickly This I dots wIthout
chIlling the body IC the latter have an
outer covering ot wool In this climate
wheN houses and ofeel are generally
overheated In wInter and the tran81
ion from Indoors to outdoors Is at
tended by a tar greater change Inter
perturo than In milder clmlte5 where
the houses arc not kept as hot a boy
are In America I Is better to wear
cotton or linen underclothes and to
iely upon heavy outer garments to
resist the cold air
This may be true though opposed to
past practIce but hal wool been plenti
ful the question would not perhaps
have arisen at all And whatever 1
he true al to underclothLng we trust
that the wool growers will 90 increase
their output as to meet the demand oC
the people for woolen clothing and 10
displace the colon and shoddy now so
largely worn In place or wool In the
fabric oC outer clothing
We welcome the representatives oC
thIs great Industry to the hospitalIty of
our State and nIsIs them every success
In advancing Its legltmato interests
Many caures have been pointed out
at c mtrlbutng to the hhher cost ot

A notnble reformatory movement Is
on foot In the Mohumleda1 world Thc
chnncelor of the UnIversity oC Egypt
Selm elDlhrl and a comlltee as
sociated wIth him he cIled a con
fernce If prominent Mussulmans to
be held 11 I l at CaIro for the pur
pose of discussing plans for tho promo
treuigthcnIng the relIgIon of

the Arabian prophet
This movement Is by leading ather
eats of Ilam compared to the reConl1
than of Luther The dcthronement
three rulers In the 110hammednn world
causes reflectIon among the thoughtful
The editor ot a leading Moslem paper
says It suggests an inquln Into
condItIons of Islam whether the ad
vancement ot Infidel natIons has aba
lten the faith ot Mussulmans In the
wisdom and abIlIty ot their leaders
The first thing the paper goes on to
say for the people or rlrlte persln
and Morocco to do Is to consider their
own regeneratIon and get ready 10 take
aart n the advancement of civilization
which Is IrresistIble I adds I lie
teachers or the faith do not acknowl
edge the necessIty ot such progress
their followers will doubtless break
asay and leaye them hehlnd The
period oC decadence or Islam has ended
with the dIspositIon or the three abso
lute monarchies antI horelter there
can bo no tardy or IndIfferent recogni
ton oC the Inevitable without sharing
their tate lhiis wo take 10 indicate
that the Mohammedan world Is ripe
for a reformatIon
And this reminds lS of the singular
fact lint the history ot Islam In home
ot its most prominent features very
much resembles the history or Chris
tanlt The Christian church soon
after the death lf the Apostles ound
itself torn I conflIcting doctrInes and
claims to authority and Inal It was
dIvided In two halves tho western and
the eatern nr the Roman and Greek
In the sixteenth century came the Ro
Cormaton by which so many both so

Dr Lowell made 1 statement 10 that

hal Boston at 0 special sessIon of one
sectIon oC the American Association
for the Advancement of Science As
reported by the Boston Herald he
claimed hint on Sept 30 heat rear two

there were none before These new
ditches ran Irma the bottom or the

Dr Lowell Is positive that these

hey are lIke all the other canals

throughout running with geometrIcal
precisIon from delnle point to anolh

The oasis resembles all other oases
They partake therefore of all tIme
peculiar features or time canal sslem
