I PARKS OF THE CITY. Li charge of public parks is Commissioner Flygare, who is de voting his energies lo making the city's recreation grounds attrac tive. But the commissioner is somewhat disturbed to find his efforts being checked by young people from schools who, invading the parks at this time of year, when the ground is soft and seed "has just been planted, destroy the work oC weeks by .-jumping on and tearing up the surface soil. It is a most difficult task to beautify the public breathing spots, if every protecting sign on the parks is disregarded by the school children. Teachers should instruct the youngsters lo be regardful of the good the city is doing and extremely careful to avoid damag ing the parks. I I ARMENIA A REPUBLIC. Electing at San Remo, Italy, the supreme council of the allies oas decided that Armenia shall be an independent republic. That is justice. For centuries the Christian people of Armenia lave been under the rule of: the terrible Turk, and for centuries they have suffered and died for the faith that is in them. They should aave been released from this barbarism which is upon them, not now but years ago. America should not hesitate to take over the responsibility of Jhe mandatory which has been offered this nation. To do so will call 'or some expenditure of human sympathy and perhaps a small out rtiy of money, but America should not hesitate to sacrifice in cause to meritorious. America'should not neglect to make its impress on all world af fairs, in order to make a better world. ' I CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME. A movement is on in this community to raise funds to be sent ,o outside sources in aid of a- society said to be devoted to child wel 'nre. Inasmuch as Ogden has the Children's Aid Society, Ogden 's :irst and most imperative duty is to give to the local organization ivhich is directed by Ogden women who serve without pay. "Whenever a charitable organization has paid workers and the noney collected is sent to distant fields there is always this unan jwered question: How much of the funds finally goes to the helping of little ihildren ? People who give generally are most concerned in knowing that :ho dollars, thcr contribute honestly arc expended. One thing is uite certain to Ogdenitcs who are charitably inclined and that is he high character of the work of the Children's Aid Society and the plf-saerificing services of the noble women responsible for the dol ars placed' at the disposal of the societ-. ' I OUR SANCTUARY. What a paradise this sanctuary can be made which has been cre ated to Lhccast of Ogden, covering the hills, the dales, the wildwood. the crags of that great hCretch of outdoors known as Ogden 's part of the "Wasatch range! A gentleman from Denver was dilating on the park system of his home citj", telling of the transformation which had been brought about by the expenditure of millions of dollars, when an Ogdenite interrupted to point out that, while Denver had accomplished much by applying the artificial. Ogden, in a number of years, would have aven a more wonderful park because Nature's master hand would be employed. This sanctuary is to be made a haven for birds and for inoffen sive wild animals. One man is bringing in raccoons, another fox squirrels, a third is sending for birds of beautiful plumage and the game wardens are arranging to establish a colony of beaver on the headwaters of the Ogden. No more interesting animals exist than the beaver. On lLost Creek the beaver are cutting down three acres o trees and are building a series of small dams which are doing in jfiry to farm lauds, and the game wardens aim to remove the dam builders to the sanctuary. What awonderful park it will be, when this new animal life becomes so'mimerOiUsas to be seen along the streams, the roads and the trails of the country -Jcading back into the rugged mountains wlii eh stand as sentinels .watching over the destiny of Ogden ! THE PRICE OF SUGAR. e Everybody is discussing the price of sugar and asking why the government fails to act in controlling the price. r. During the Avar the severest criticism of the administration grew )ut of the fact that the government had fixed the price of sugar, .vjieat and flour. r Now the men who were loudest in condemning the paternalism ) the war period have changed -front and are insisting on arbitral lotion. i On Saturday, in congress, Senator Capper joined in demanding j ;hat the government do something to hold down prices. He was )ile of the men who protested against the regulating of prices in war ;imes. t Although Senator Capper is inconsistent, his present plea has some merit. He indulges in this striking statement: Z "Wall Street's melon patches are warmed by the sun of privi j ege, fertilized by the perspiration of labor and watered by the tears d poverty." Well said, but why is Senator Capper neglecting his duty as a egislator? Why is he not framing a law to compel a cure for these ivils? If Attorney General Palmer is not sufficiently resourceful in ipplying a remedy, why should Senator Capper fail to have congress specially instruct the attorney general and give him unmistakable oower and authority? Something should be done to prevent the Drice of sugar, made last fall and winter at 8 and 9 cents a pound oeing retailed at 23 cents a pound. ' Careful thinkers when called on to express an opinion on this j question of. price control declare there are elements of danger in an ;,xtreme interference with business; that too much government pater-1 aalism makes for endless upset, and they point to the fact that after ' ill the people have the power to keep down these abuses. They cite ,he case of the price of clothing. No sooner had the people started a sampaign to wear overalls and old clethes, than the quotations of! rien's suits dropped $5 to $20. ' When any article of common use gets too high, the consumers j mould turn to a substitute. In San Francisco, when butter and eggs became too high the ' lousewives formed a mion and struck. That is to say they agreed j lot to use butter and eggs until those necessities were reduced in ' Drice. "Within two weeks the cost of a pound of butter and a dozen )f eggs was cuf in two. To.o often the people ask protection when Siey have thepower to protect themselves. ! Six months of real economy would do more to take the countrv int of the upset of the high cost of living than nil the legislation nd local prosecution that wise heads might put in fprce , WTTILE.

Great Britain Rejects Secession of Ireland LONDON, April 27 The question was raised in tho house of commons today 'whether tho government's at tention had been drawn to "the offic ial statement of the new British am bassador lo the United States in which he declared proposals for tho secession of Ireland from the British empire had been rejected." Andrew Bonar Law replied that the ambassador undoubtedly referred, to the secessionist policy of the Sinn Feiners which, he said, of course had been repudiated by the government. On his arrival in the United States Sir Auckland Geddes,- the new British ambassador, said: J "It should, I think be known that proposals for the secession of Ireland from the British empiro have been! submitted to tho British cabinet, but as announced by the prime minister in ; the house of commons, have been re i jected." !

And I see my neighbors gay burn the costly gasoline, while I plant my bales of hay, and tho early Lima bean. And they go, all primed with cash, to the moving picture shows, while I sow ray succotash, Brussels sprouts, and things like those. They'll be buying costly eats (and the price will make them cry), while I pluck my home grown beets, and con sume the rhubarb pie. I've a little plot of soil, fifty by a hundred feet; there'll I raise, by honest toil, all the things I wish to oat. I'll have pump kins I can sell, squashes till you can not rest, and young onions that will smell much like Araby the blest I'll have things to boll nnd bake, I'll have cauliflower to spare, and my cabbage heads will take premiums at the coun ty fair. I'll have growing greens enough all my family lo keep, and tho Cost of Living stuff will not rob mc of rny sleep. If tho boys would fall in line, raising garden sass this year, thoy might drop the plaintive whine, "All we eat is so blamed dear." oo Chafbam Institute Faculty Resigns RICHMOND, va., April 28. Dispute as to the propriety of a lecture on Harriet Beecher Stowe, resulted today in the resignation of the entire faculty of Chatham Episcopal Institute here. The engagement for tho lecture was cancelled by the Rev. C. O. Pruden, president of tho institute, who held any eulogy of Mrs. Stowe before southern girls would be out of place. Principal Willis and members of the faculty, composed in part of woman graduates of Northern colleges, disa greed and when President Pruden re fused to rescind his order, voted to submit their resignations, effective Friday. oo Ford Motor and Truck Company Incorporated LANSING. Mich.. April 18. Formal notice of the proposed re-organization of the Ford Motor company and other interests of its stockholders was filed today with the secretary of state. The papers indicated that tho automobile and tractor business will be consoli dated and reincorporated as a $100, 000,000 Delaware corporation.

H health Questions Will Be An swered If Sent to Information Bureau, U. S. Public Health Serv Ice, Washington, D. C. PASTEURIZATION OF 3CTLK. In 1907 the U. S. Public Health IH Servlco mado a notable study of the milk situation in Its relation to the IH public health. Pasteurization of milk IH was urged as tho only dependable means of eliminating- milk as a czec- jH rier of certain common communi cablo diseases, such as scarlet fover, diphtheria, septic soro throat and ty phoid fever. Following this a commission ap- .JH pointed to consider the milk question as It affectod the city of Washington recommended municipal pastourlza- B tion. Since that time pasteurization -of milk has been advocated by many others. The present view of experienced hHI health authorities Is well reflected la thj following resolution adopted not long ago by the National Committee on Milk Standards: "Resolved, that all milk, including that which enters In tho preparation ; of milk products, especially Ice cream, be pasteurized and the effici ency of tho process be controlled; that such milk bo reduced to a prop er temperature at tho source of sup ply and kopt at that tcmporature during transportation and until con- i aumed."

I have been troubled with L slcoplessnea3 for about 10 years, and sometimes I do not lose consciousness for three nights. What shall I do? : s A. Insomnia Is often a vory stub born condition to treat, though as a j obtained when the patient's entire mode of life can be regulated. This ! applies to his environment, to his L work, to his associations with others, to the provision of suitable diver sions, to entertainment and tho like. As an adjunct to such measures, an abundance of fresh air in tho home, a hot bath on retiring, and perhaps a cup of hot milk and a cracker half an hour before bedtime are often of service. , j I U.
