I V UTAH AND ITS REFORMERS. ii 13 y an article in the Salt take Dai-. y Tribune of March ?, 1881, we learn that the "Reformers" of far famed , Utah" think that ''billiard halls, sa loons and housrs of ill-fame are more powerful reforming agencies here in -Utah than churches and schools, or even tht TnmuNEt" With these institutions the 'reform- ers' propose to lead the 'Mormons" to u hiyher civilisation.' The article further states that 'what the young Mormons "want is to be freed.' Freed ! From what 1 From the union of our parents, yhom we love, I: apd turned, pell mell, into lacivious dens, Without an honorable name, to become whoremongers, blacklegs, vil I ' liana, &c?

No! we do not want them and will not patronize them, for we believe in. honesty and virtue, and in a living God who reigns above and rules all things, and we believe He will bear ua conqueror through all trials, in . spite of the venom and ill-reports of our enemies. Wc have truth on our side and Truth is mighty and will prevail. H- "TOO MANY PRINTERS."

The following, from the Florida Dispatch, is so applicable to the farm ers of Utah, we give it room. , The Southern Farmer says every year the. importance of raising our owu pork becomes more appureiit on this coast. Our farmers iind that there is policy as well as profit in raising pork upon the farm. Alfalla fields make the beat kind of hog past ures at any season of the year. ?rain fields are easily harvested by hops, and the stubble fields are gleaned by them. On many farms, parties larly where dairying and grain growing are carried on together, the cost of rais ing a few hogs each year is nothing, as they get their living upon what would otherwise go to waste. But it pays to fe d hogs well ; to keep them in pood growing order from their birth till they are ready for the butch er. The hog should be looked upon as a necessary part of every good farmer's stock. And while he saves what would, otherwise go to waste, he should also be provided for in times when there is no feed. ' ; Farmers who feel the effect of hrd tiinej should think upon this subject, and, by taking advantage ot every sure means of profit, turn their attention to branched of Farming that will' pay, and not neglect bo profitable a re source as the growing and fattening of hogs to supply the home demand. a ii. Farmers should have Boos. - Bee keeping, says the Indiana Far mer appropriately belongs to farming. Farmers havo the soil and tho flow ers, and when forage is wanting, they caa supply it by sowing and ptanting. We do not claim for bee-keeping that it is all profit and no loss, that it can be successfully managed without cost, but by intelligent management we know that it will give as good results foi the outlay as are obtained by any work done upon the form. As a spec ialty it will hardly pay, except in rare localities, but in connection with other pursuits it will pay; and well, too. Two-thirds of the value of an apiary consists of fixtures, hives and combaf When one has all the combs necessary for the bees, the number of colonies can be doubled in. one season, while the surplus from all-will be as large as when the bees Were kept in one hive.
