il country aro fighting against tho sopar-

M unmistakably that tho commercial in-

H ot all plauslblo that this gain ro-
H forrod to could ho accomplished ox-
H copt at tho loss of commorclnl Inter-
H oats In sootlons further north? Ono

H that it tho southorn sections provall
H' in tho railroad controversy that has
m arisen It must bo at cost to tho moro
H northerly communities, among -which
m Utah must lo counted. Tho bust-

H could not bo blamed it thoy ontorod
M tho fight for a grouping that would
B mean tho routing ot tralllc, both
H passenger and frolght, over linos that
m como Into tholr .territory. Indood, it
is surprising that the commercial and
industrial Intorcsts of this stata havo
not taken up tho matter far moro
vigorously than has boon dono up to
tho present time. In u recent dc
clslon tlto United Slatos Supromo
Court ordored tho separation in
ownorshlp nnd control, ot tho Central
Pacific and tho Southorn Pacific, Tho
Central Pacific is that lino extending
from Ogdon to San Francisco, with
ItA various branchos and foedors. Tho
Southern Pacific has a southorn routo
oxtondtug down tho Pacific coast,
across southorn California, Arizona,
Now iMcxico and Texas, to Quit of
Moxlco ports. Tho mllago of this
routo far exceeds that of tho Central
Pacific which Joins tho Union Pacific
at Ogdon. Now, whllo it Is truo that
a shipper may, nnd is, indoed, ox
poctod to specify tho routing ot his
consignment it is clearly ovidont
that tho omployocs ot a system can,
In vurlous ways and by various
methods, dotormlno over which routo
tho consignment filial 1 go. And It
would bo no loss than human for
thorn, oven unconsciously, without
premodltatlon, to favor tho lino for
which thoy aro working. Nothing
Ions could bo expected, irrespective
of tho Integrity nnd honesty of tho
railroad ofllclals and tho mon whom
thoy omploy. Drlofly, thorofore, nnd
without camouflaging tho situation,
it could bo expocted that with tho
Control Pacific Joined to tho Southorn
Pacific and Its great network of mllo-
ngo ncross tho south, propondoronco
of shlpmontB would bo deflected over
tho southern routo rather than sent
directly ncross tho country 1)y way of
Ogdon, and tlio Union Pacific. This,

Thoro Is no destro on tho part of

Shortngo In tho cranberry crop In
other purls of tho United StuU'S last
year lias focused attention upon this
uuw InduMtry of thc Pacific Northwest,
which promises to furnish strong com
petition for thc product of the eastern
part of tho American continent, us de
scribed In Popular Mechanics Maga
zine. After years of experimentation
and selection and tho development of
artificial growing areas thc states of
Washington and Oregon havo como to
tho front as producers of cranberries
lu largo commercial quantities.
Lowls nnd Clark, In tho log of'thelr
trip across tho continent In the early
part of tho Nineteenth century, men
tion tho line flavor of tho wild cranber
ries purchased from tho Indians along
Columbia river. Cultivation of the wild
cranberry bogs wns not attempted un
til about thlrty-flvo years ago, und con
tinued lu u desultory manner until re
cently, when a successful menus of pre
paring growing ground wns developed.
Preparation of cranberry ground In
tho Pacific Northwest Is an expenslvo
undertaking, thc cost being around $1,
000 an acre. A wild marsh Is selected,
drained by ditches, cleared of trees
nnd brush, then tho turf Is removed by
what Is called the "scalping" process,
laying bnro tho pent of tho bog. Over
tlio peat Is spread a four-Inch layer of
clean whlto sand. Planting Is the next
proceeding. Vino cuttings aro used for
this purpose and aro pressed through
tho sand Into tho peat with a dlbblo or
planting tool. Tho vines are planted
ten Inches apart, which makes about
CO.OOO to tho acre.
Company Formed to Work Large De
posits Recently Found In Wayne
County, Utah.
What Is believed to be tho first Jet
deposit to be developed In tho United
States Is now being successfully mined
In Wayne county, Utah, where recently
mineralogists discovered tho. largest
commercial body of the mineral known
to exist In tho world. Singularly, dis
covery of tho Jot was accidentally
made by n party of miners engaged In
assessment work for a copper company.
The work of mining thn Jet begun late
in the summer of last year and, with
financial backing assured, Is expected
to develop Into great proportions.
At tho present time the work of
mining the mineral Is moro or less
crudely done, but lt Is the intention of
the owners of tho decidedly valuablo
deposits soon to Install modern ma
chinery and develop tho Industry Into
tho largest of Its kind In tho world.

The "Elephant and Castle."
Tho Elephant and Castle was a fa
mous landmark In South London, Enjf
land, deriving Its sign from tho arms
of the Cutlers' company. A tavern In
St, Pnncrus parish, London, took Its
;lgn from tho skeleton of on elephant,
beside which wns a flint-headed spear
excavnted In the neighborhood. Tho
connection between these two relic
and tho bottle fought by the followers
of Queen Hoadlcea against tho Roman
Invaders was unuiistnkalilp.
