' made appropriate by Die Joseph H Smith centenary. The mechanical H work was but fairly done. Considering H the fact, that the oil Ice boasts a $1,000 H linotype and a line now press, tho H j publication Is not more than tho pub- H i Ho had a right to expect. Tho con- H I tents of the edition were written by H Mayoi Robinson, M.J. Ballard, James B A. Lclshmau the poet, various local H ' people having knowledge of the H Prophet Joseph, Dr. Ccorgc Thomas, H W. M. Wolfe, County Supt. McCarrey, H Andreas Peterson, Louis I!, Cardon. H Tho various articles presented arc H j worthy their authors and prove In- HJ j ' tercstlng' reading. Hi I To the knowing there Is an In I measurable difference between tho ' ''hand-me-down" and tailor-made suit of clothes. As great dilTcrcuco exists between tho Goodwin's Weekly Christmas edition and all others of this western country. It possessed HJ jj the charm that goes with tho genuine, HJ j the thing of real value and though It Ht contained a reference or so not quite HJ satisfactory to tho orthodox Mormon, HJ It must have given Intense pleasure in HJ every homo to which lb went Regard- HJ less of what he may say, there is no HJ i man west of the Mississippi who can HJ. ay It quite like Goodwin. In its HJ simplicity, perfect ad and press work HJ the paper was a typographical gem, HJ j also. HJ ThoChrlstmasedltionoftheDeseict 1 H News was all and more than tho pub He could reasonably expect even of the News which In the. past has done ,r nothing less than tho wonderful In HJ tho way of special editions. lb was Hi exhaustive In its description of Utah, J' t Nevada and Idaho resources and pos- slbllltlcs. Cache valley people feel ' , that this end of Utah was slighted Hi but must needs acknowledge the mag- Hj mllccncc of the News, nevertheless. HE ' Typographically tho edition w,is a tie- HJ ' light to the eye of all the knowing HJ ' and pleasing even to the uninitiated. B ' The Pocatcllo Tribune comes to our Hb desk a thirty-six page edition with the HJ cover In colors. Tho number is highly 1 creditable In every respect, containing as it docs splendid Illustrations ofl'o- HJ catcllo and Bannock county enter- ! prises with well-written descriptive matter. Thu edition Is very compre hensive and as an advertisement for Tho Tribune, Pocatcllo and Uapnock county is such that great good ' must , result. Tho publlsheis and typo graphical force arc to be heartily con- i gratulatcd on thejhorough success of this effort. Hj , Tho Box Elder Hcpoit, lirighatn H j ' city, came out with eight pages In Hb , I green, the front page hearing two HI'lI colors and "The Good Shepherd." Hb'kj j The edition is very creditable to The Hl: if I . Report ottlce. If The Oakley Kagle (A. l. Merrill's paper) didn' l attempt anything elab orate, bub did present Its readers a few extra pages and some good read- mmmm . ing matter. For some oitlees to do HK , this means far mora than for others to HB : Issue 100 pages in colors. H A POINTER. Hi In "contemplating the boom" that HB is coming to Salt Lake city as a result Hh 1 of the many forces now at work in HB I favor of that city, Goodwin's Weekly HB j offers timely suggestions that arc tin- BBB doubtedly well worth the while. With BBM tho building of so many railroads, tho BB work of the "Sec America First Or- BBfj ganlzatlon," and tho opening of many BBj! big mines In Utah and Nevada, all can BBJj see a great increase of population for BBJ; Salt Lake city and tho whole inter- BBJf mountain country, and Goodwin's BBJ Weekly urges preparation for them, fll at the same time pointing ways of BBJ making money in tho preparation. BHj Tho part of particular interest to BBb , local readers Is In the following: HMl, "With the work to bo done, with HBT' the increased population which that BB1 ll work wl" DrinK llcrc lll merchants BBS1' who sell food should, so far as thoy BBlN can, bo making plans to receive am- pie supplies of staple food at Just as BBH reasonable llgures as possible. For HHj! Utah, under present conditions, can- Hhbbhhmhhi ' '"""""'':""'"'"' ." not supply the vegetables, tho ordin ary meats, the poultry or more than a moiety of the fruits that will be re quired. And Utah farmers should get a new impetus to mako thclrfarms more productive. For Instance, tho cry Is already raised that celery Is De cerning scarce, and the price Is liable to advance. That Is a reproach to Utah farmers. At present prices, thcro must be a pro lit of quite. $100 per acre on celery, and It Is not yet New Years. Every day there Is un loaded bushels and bushels of Import ed onions and cabbage before the wholesale stores. This is a direct Im peachment of the Industry, thrift and intelligence of Utah farmers, for thcro is a prollb of from 1 100 bo $.100 on every aero of onions or cabbages raised hi this vicinity. Again, with just a lit tle effort, a little Intelligent work, tho egg and poultry producb of this chain of valleys from abovo Logan to beyond Provo, mlRht be multiplied by four. Again, many old orchards which pro duce only inferior fruit remain year after year ungraftcd and unattci ded, which is a perpetual evidence of tho laziness and utter want of foresight of tho owners." These are not Idle suggestions. It is in prcpardncss that most men have made their fortunes and only In that will fortunes be made In the future by most men. Tiik Kki'uiilican gavojts employes a Christmas holiday and the editorial and rcpertorial staff took advantago of tho opportunity to get lazy, also. As a conscqucnco the columns of this publication aro noted for tho absence rather than tho preponderance of nows. Considering tho circumstances connected with this lapse, we trust that the rcadlngpubllc will be indulgent. . PARROTS LIVE FOR A CENTURY. Could Talk as Well as a Man If Edu cated When -Young. There Is no doubt of tho fact that the parrot Is one of the longest lived of all animals. There Is a woll-eu-thcntlcntcd case of a grown man who used to go to sco a remarkable talk ing cockatoo which 'his grandmother nad personally known when who was a little Rlrl. So It s probably no falrj story thnt the birds sometimes sur vive for a century, Inasmuch as actual knowledge of tho particular fowl cov ered something like seventy years. In the West Indies and elsewhere lr thu tropics parrots aro commonly al-' lowed to roam at will about house gardens and nt meal times, when they hear tho clatter of plates they will walk Into tho dining-room, climb on tho backs of tho chairs and Insist up on their share of whatever there Is to eat. It seems odd, when ono comes to think of It, that birds should be tho ouly nnlmals that can talk. There aro other speaking hints beside parrots, of course such as the crow, for exam ple, hut parrots aro decidedly the most capable convei nationalists. So excellent Is the vocal organ with which a parrot Is provided that If It only had the requisite brains It could talk almost ns well as a man. Doubt less the most Intelligent parrots arc the best speakers other things being equal, but, as already suggested, no parrot, however clever, can become a flrst-rato talker unless Its education has been begun early In life. KURDS QUICK TO GIVE BATTLE. Ready Fighting "Follows Attempted Theft of Sheep. Col. P. H. II. Massy tells of this battle which ho witnessed In tho course of his explorations In Asiatic Turkey. Tho cause of tho light wap an attempted theft of sheep. Ho says: "Some tlocks wero being 'driven oil ncross the Slpkanll Kurds' bonier when tho usual alarm signals, shots tired and smoko fires kindled at all tho villages around, brought clouds of horsemen galloping wildly acioss hi that direction. This did not look very reassuring in tho middle of so wild a country, where a human life ly never worth thnt of n good sheep, but wo soon perceived, by tho yelling Kurds with grinning faces who dashed past uf,, that to us no harm was In tended. "Wo reached the village not far from which tho battle wan raging to find the flat roofs occupied by all tho women. Quito regardless of stray bullets thoy followed tho fluctuating fortunes of their side nrald the din of their own shrill tongues, which almost drownod the thundering reports of the Kurdish powder, anything but noiseless or smokeless, "It was fcoon over. The flocks wero triumphantly brought back, together with tho bodies of a fow dead Kurdr and somo others wounded. We passed on amid the walling of tho women Just widowed In a llcht for a few sheep.'' Fiddle Rescued at Newburyport. After a heated discussion at n pa Ish meeting In Newburyport Mass., regarding choir or congregational singing, which resulted m favor of the former, the question arose what Instruments should bo used. For near ly a week tho members bad dliciibsed tho matter, and they favored all i ut tho fiddle, objecilng to that because If was "tho devil's iusti anient." used mostly at dances, etc. As the vote was about to be called for. Elder Hale, who had occupied a var seat, said: "1 navf llstenoi as patiently as the ox In the furrow to tho pros nnd cons of this long dU'cus slon. You have accepted all but tho liddle, the leading Instrument. Your only objection to It is that the devil has It. Now. I think ho has hart It long enoiiKh, and think we ought to take it from him and use it our selves." He then moved for a vote, and the voters were unaulniiius for tho nddlo I Description of Tom Lawson Most Interesting Article Detailing Law son's Career and his Recent Failure. Amalgamated Copper slock, against which Thomas W. Lawson has waged a bitter campaign. has risen apovc par, touching 1001. It soared to 102 and Wall street said Lawson had been hit a staggering blow llnancially. Months ago Lawson began advising people In full-page advertisements to sell copper short. Several weeks ago he announced the formation of a pool to speculate In copper stocks. lie scut out notices last week to pool sub scribers showing a loss of 3(1 per cent, $1,200,000 In metal, and $'J, 100,000 in stocks, since last accounting. Lawson now advises his followers that they may withdraw the balance of their subscriptions. Two mortgag es for $2G5,(HX) have been tiled against Lawson's rcsldenco In Roston, and they are supposed to represent part of his losses. Lawson is a Handsome Man. Thomas William Lawson, born forty-live years ago In Cliurlcstown,Mass., the son of a Nova Scotlan carpenter of splendid means. Is a strikingly hand some man, of clear-cut features and the figure of an athlete, standing over six feet in height, splendidly propor tioned. Vitriolic of pen, dramatic of speech, startling of deed, a olttcr hater, a furious worker, a phenomenal money maker, a liberal spender, of tremen dous energy and wonderful resource fulness, Lawson has had a stormier career than that of any financier In modern annals. Thrice ho has "gone broke", only to duplicate tho fabled Phoenix by raising from the ashes of defeat to richer heights. Starting his career by running away from school at 12 years of age to be come an errand boy in a broker's of fice, Lawson at Id made a small for tune in a pool with other olllcc boys, only to drop lb In a squeeze of stocks a few days later. This break cost him $50,841 out of $00,000. Ho spent all bub $4.30 of tho balance in giving a dinner to his friends, and gave the $4.30 to tho waitor as a tip. "I decided to make ttaclean sweep," ho said. lie married at 21, ana is the father of six children. Onco ho bought a new carnation for $30,000, and named lb for his wife, and at another time be cause his wife liked the site ho bought some barren, rocky '.and near Scltuate, Mass , and spent $2,000,000 transform ing lb into a stock farm, naming It "Drcamwold," and making It famous for Its magnificent blooded horses and cattle. Has Made Millions in Day. It has been Lawson's way and lob to make and lose millions of dollars in a single day with tho unconccrnedness of a labotcr who cleans up $1 cutting grass or shoveling snow. lie made his debut in State street, Roston's financial district, seventeen years ago, In a light againsb a store service com pany, being Interested in a rival par ent on the cash carriers used. lie won, smashed the company and reorganized it with himself on thu inside. In lb'.t.! in a, stock camgalgn of the Westinghouse Klcctrio company against the General Elcctriccompany, ho stuffed $2,031,000 In llfty-elght days for himself and his backets. Then ho "plunged" in sugar and "went, broke" for the second time In his career." Next he promoted a "boom town" In Kentucky and lost heavily for him self aud those backing him, Dips Into Copper. Hecomlng interested In Uuttc & Roston Copper Mining company's shares, he bought at 75 cents and "bulled" It to $75. Then ho did aboub tho same thing with stock of tho Ros ton & Montana company. Tho year 1900 found him tho possessor of $30,-000,000-and about to step Into tho fight which has led to his present straits. , Lawson Interested Henry H. Rogers and other Standard Oil men in tho or ganization of tho Amalgamated Cop per company, fell out with them In 1IKU and diopped about $10,000,000 In tho great crash which lilt so many Detroit speculators, among them Frank C. Andrews. Lawson vowed vengeance on Rogers and all his friends, and began his famous "Frenzied Finance" stories In u New York magazine as part of his cam paign of cxposuro and revenge. In cldentaliy he sought to strike his enemies occasionally In stock market. Articles and speculations lit've alike cost him dear. Ills vitriolic language aroused his opponents and made new ones. Whllo ho stung tho Standard Oil and.insuranco company speculators he failed to bring them to their knees. For abuse they returned. When l.o called them thieves and constructive i murderers, heartless, soulless wot shlpcrs of money, they called him a maniac and called In expert testimony to show that his brain was awry. Now, by their mcchinatlons In the stock market they have hit him a 'body blow that will take all his energy and resourcefulness to sustain. NEW CURE FOR SNAKE'S BITE. Follows Plan of "Hair of the Dog That Bit You." "Take a hnlr of tho dog that bit you," Is an old rii'w that, as a sug gested remedy, has led many a man out of the frying pan Into the fire, and It cannot certainly bo recommend ed as a cure suitable for modern times, when nn antidote is more rec ommend; de. Dogs nro not, however, the only anl mals whos blto Is to bo feared; 'tint those people whoso travels have led them to far lands know that pclson ous snakes are much more to ho dreaded. Though by fnr the greater propor tion of thoso persons thus bitten die. there Is a certain number who re cover, thanks to prompt measuics, and thnnkB also to tho administration of tho exact remedy which any par ticular suakH bite requires. It haB lately been reported that, on tho principle of tho old adage men tioned abovo wilch thus servos a turn an almost 'crtnln euro 'or snake bite Is the Injection of a hi? all portion of tho bile of the reptllo which has attacked any one, and which tho snake being geneinlly killed on tho spot Is natural! at hand. The gall bladder Is etr.-icled, Its contents filtered, nnd tho fluid inject ed under tho skin. Tho method sounds somewhat complicated; but no snake-bitten person will complain If by this mtaas ho escapee a rapid 'death. Tho experiments made have given tho best results, those recovoting from the poisonous Mto of n South American snake coming off with noth ing worse than an abscess at tho point of penetration of tho serpent's tooth. t!Ji:inibeis" Journal . : NORTH STAR NEVER CHANGES. ; Retains Always Its Fixed Position in the Heavens. Tho pole star Is really the most Im portant of tho stars In tho sky. It marks tho north at all times. It alono Is tlxed In the heavens. All tho other stars seem to swing around it once In twenty-four hours. Hut the polo star of Polaris Is not a very bright one, and It would bo hard to Identify but for the help of tho so called pointers In tho Dig Dipper or Great Hoar. The outer rim of tho dip per points nearly to Polaris, at a dis tance equal to three times tho space that separates the two stars of tho dipper's outer side. Various Indians call the polo star the "homo star'' and "tho star that never moves," nnd the dipper they call thu "broken back." The Great Rear is also to ho re mombered as tho pointers for another reason. It Is the hour hand of the woodman's clock.
