of Salt Lake, returned to lie. home at
the capital city Saturday after a three
weeks visit at tlio Miner home on
East Center street. Mrs. Einpey has
chargo of a branch of the relief society
of Salt Lake, where It is her duty to
furnish nurses for any and all poor
families In tho city who need such as
sistance tnd are hardly able to pay for
it. This, arrangement was made pos
sible by the benevolence of a certain
prominent physician of Salt Lake who
agreed to graduate as nurses all young
women who wonld come to her, pro
viding they would nurse for charity's
sako during a period of two years.
Many were glad of this opportunity
and took advantage of it, so that the
city now has nurses by the score ready
for duty at a moment's notice. Mrs.
Empey's recent visit to Logan was the
ilrst In twelve years, and to her tho
changes seem many and remarkable.
I Concerning The Republican.
Our news press together with a Job
ber is guaranteed to be here by Octo
ber 1st, after which wo will be In shape
to do all kinds of Job printing.
Tho Republican ofllcc is in tho
Ecclcs Hall, Main street, above tho U.
O. Don't forget where we arc and
that you are cordially invited to call
in and sec us at any time. This is to
be "tho people's paper" and we want
you to take a personal interest in it.
The following four or five issues of
The Republican will offer an excellent
opportunity for advertisers who desire
to reach the people. During this time
2,000 copies will be Issued and circu
lated, and Inasmuch as the paper Is a
new Institution, somewhat of a nov
elty, every ono will be interested in it.
The getting out of an edition this
week on such short notice after receipt
of type, etc., has been a rush matter
and placed us under such difficulties
as to make it impossible to do Justice
to ourselves in any way. When mat
ters shape themselves up properly we
we shall have no excuses to offer and
the assertions contained in the circular
recently got out by us will bo fulfilled
to the letter.
In attempting to get out an edition
on such an early date after the receipt
of but a part of our material, the Re
publican bit off a larger bite than it
could chew properly and as a result
the paper is of little value so far as
news Is concerned merely serving
tlio purpose mentioned elsewhere,
that of letting its friends know that
it is a living proposition. Type was
not in the oftlec until Wednesday,
cases not laid until Friday, and work
commenced only on Saturday., Inas
much as the entire work connected
with a ilrst Issue that of soliciting
and setting of all adds, the writing
and setting of all material for the
news columns, together with number
less other nccesary things that con
sume time-had to be done between Sat
urday and Tuesday afternoon, with
Sunday off, the Imposlbllity of doing
Justice to this issue will present Itself
to those familiar with newspaper
work. Tills issue is not a paper by
which you may Judge of future issues,
except as regards typographical ap
pearance. You will observe tha( It Is
presented to you in a neat, clean,
readable shape, and thus will it ever
The local newspaper should be found
in every home. Children should not
grow up in ignorance who can be
taught to appreciate tlic home press.
It Is said to be the stepping .stone of
Intelligence in all those matters not
to be learned in books. Give your chil
dren a foreign paper which has not
one word concerning any person, place
or thing they ever saw or perhaps
heard tell of, and how could you ex
pect them to be Interested? But let
them have a home paper and read of
the persons whom they meet, and of
places which they arc familiar, and
soon an interest is awakened which
increases with every arrival of the
local paper. Thus a habit of reading
Is formed and tho children will read
tho paper all their lives and become
intelligent men and women, a credit
to their ancestors, strong in the
knowledge of the world as it is today.

The Pear Orchard.
Among many of our western farm
ers growing pears is considered In
tb light of speculation. Pear blight
is the deadly enemy that has Bet at
naught the efforts of our orchardlsts,
especially when they try to grow most
of the old standard varieties. Re
cently, that is, within a few years,
new varieties have been brought for
ward that are more or less blight
proof. Some of these are inferior in
quality, but may prove to be a valua
ble foundation for hybridizing with
the other varieties. Thus a pear of
good quality that can resist the
blight may yet be produced. If a
man wants to grow pears, about the
only thing he can do is to keep on
trying. His soil should be heavy,
quite rich, and the trees should have
a, good start When he comes to the
question of cultivation ho will receive
a good many different hinds of advice.
Here and thero are men that declare
that trees will not blight if kept in
sod. They think this because they
have not traveled fur enough to And
the orchards that have blighted to
death on sol land.
But what Is true of sod land is also
true of cultivated land, so far as the
blight Is concerned. Evidence points
to tho fact that cultivation and non
cultivation have little effect on the
blight The cultivation of pear orch
ards is followed by somo of the most
successful growers of pears in the
East. Other things being the same,
tho orchard that is cultivated has the
best chance to resist the attacks of
blight, Just as a well-fed person has
tho best chance of escaping disease.
Tho poorly fed tree, and the tree that
has Us nourishment stolen away from
it by the roots of grasses, has not the
thrift to resist attack.
As to varieties, the man that at
tempts to grow new and untried ones
in large quantities is very certain to
make a failure, becau'so among a cer
tain number of new varieties only an
occasional one proves to be as good
as the standard varieties. It has
been found that hardiness and high
quality of pears do not go together.
This is true also of other fruits. It
is a fact that the pears of medium
and poor quality are more often suc
cessfully raised than are those of high
quality. Thus Kelffer is not a very
excellent pear, but it Is more success
fully raised than any' other.
Our Friends the Bird.
Another bird most friendly to man
Is the Jolly, lively little house wren,
whose song bubbles and tumbles all
over itself in its haste to get out
He will appreciate a box for a home
also, but make ihe hole only an inch
wide. Ninety-eight per cent of the
wren's food is Insects. The barn
swallow, a most useful bird, can also
be persuaded to live near us if we
will encourage him a little; sometimes
a small hole cut in the gable of the
barn is all the invitation he needs.
In the lilac bushes in your yard you
may find nests of the yellow warbler,
the cat bird and the brown thrasher,
that long cinnamon-brown bird with
the glorious voice, and in your maples
and elms the robins, orioles, and vi
reos, tho rose-breasted grosbeak and
the cedar birds may build, or perhaps
the wood thrush, our finest singer.
All of these birds are Invaluable,
oven though some of them may eat
a few of our cherries. They all pre
fer wild fruit, if they can find It, and
It is a good plan to plant some of
our wild fruit trees near our cherry
orchards. The beautiful rose-breasted
grosbeak is one of the few birds that
will cat potato bugs in quantities.
The oriole eats the grub of tho click
beetle, ono of the most destructive
In the fields you will hear the
sweet, loud whlstlo of the meadow
lark. There are also the red-winged
blackbird and the gay bobolink. Tho
latter is a destructive bird in the
rico fields of tho South, where It is
called the reed bird, but here it lives
mostly on weed seeds, and is benefi
cial. Tho red-winged blackbird de
stroys weevils, ono of our worst in
sects. Tho stomach of ono meadow
lark contained thirty-seven grass
hoppers. This bird Is, unfortunately,
sometimes shot as a game bird, but
ho is too valuablo to bo spared. Out
In tho wood lot we tlnd the chickadee,
that friendly little gray and white
fellow, with a black cap. In the
stomachs of four chickadees wero
found moths of tho canKerworm con
taining 1.02G eggs, from whicu it has
been estimated that during the twenty-five
days in which these female
moths crawl up trees each chlckadeo
would destroy 138.7C0 eggs. Ellon
