Fruit .Crop Failure Affects
General Situation; Vege
tables Coming In
Surpassing any liko fruit yet mar
keted in Ogdon this spring, Utah
strawberries are now offered for sale
and, according to reports from gro
cers, will be on the market for some
time, , ,
The fruit as a general ruje is un
usually large, of exceptional flavor,
and is exceedingly' pleasing to tho eye
as well as the palate. Until the price
Is mentioned, strawberries are highly
Notwithstanding reports Uhat this
crop will be one of the best exper
ienced by berry growers this year,
and desplto the fact that there will
be a huge supply, grocers have pre
dicted high prices throughout me
strawberry season. Failure of the
apricot crop and partial failure of the
fruit crop is roportod to be the rea
son for the hlgn prices in .this fruit.
A cup of Utah strawberries can now
be purchased for 30 cents.
Farmers have stated that the cher
rv crop, which is expected to mature
within the next three weeks, will also
be unusually large, but with prevail
ing high prices.
Utah turnips and beets are the lat
est vegetable arrivals from local truck
gardens. They are selling at a rea
sonable price considering that their
appearance marks the beginning of tne
crop, grocers asking 15 cents ror two
good-sized bunches of this vegetable.
While no celebration is being plan
ned locally, it is anticipated that the
advent of imported watermelons will
be announced about July 1.
Cantaloupes arc offered for sale at
various stores of the city..
Barring possible Inroads of juven
iles, there will be a large melon crop
here, It is slated.
String beans and tomatoes of the
early variety were nipped In the bud
by a frost about ten days ago. It is
stated, The crops in both of these
vegetables will be about normal.
Keporfs regarding peaches arc that
this crop will bo very short.
Frost has been responsible for an
entire lack of apricots this year, it Is
said, this fruit having been Dadly
damaged. ,
At present the markets are well sup
plied with products from California
truck gardens.
, Scveal grocers have attributed high
! prices 10 short pi'oducUon, even re
garding tho strawberry crop.
Game Law Fines to
to. Slate Funds
Moneys accumulated by city courts
in the form of fines and forfeitures
in connection with charges of viola
tion of the state fish and game laws
should be paid into the state fish and
game fund, according to a decision
made by the supreme, court yester
day. The law creating city courts pro
vides that fines and forfeitures are to
be divided equally between the cities
apd the counties .in which the courts
are located. However, the fish and
game law makes special provision for
the disposition of fines and forfeitures
for its violation.
City Judge H. B. Tucker of Provo
felt bound by the general law govern
ing city courts and accordingly action
; was brought against him by R. H.
! Siddoway, state fish and game com
I missioner. Judge Morgan sustained
1 a demurrer against the state officer,
I and the matter was taken to the su
preme court. The latter body decides
that the fish and game law, as a
gpecial law, lakes precedence over
the more general statute covering c:;y
courts and accordingly orders the

In the weekly news letter of the
Weber county farm bureau appears
the following article which outlines,
to some extent, the plans of the cam

from Weber county. The article rol
lows: The county commissioners and

weeds in Weber county. Deputy Weed
inspectors in eacli locality have been
appointed with instructions on weed
eradication work under the new state
weed law as passed by the last leg
islature. The .success of the weed work
In each town in the county depends
largely on the attitude the local in
spector manifests toward the work
and the interest of the local people.
The weeds can bo eradicated even if
the local inspector is dilatory, by tho
people demanding that the inspector
do his duty as instructed, and by co
operating with him. Tho official ap
pointment of your weed inspector is
as follows:

ty crop pest Inspectors, and farmers
of the county, have taken a decided
stand against noxious weeds and havo
tried to enforce the state weed law.

might not bo lost, we feel that thitP
work should be continued, therefore,

First Half of Human Interest
Article by 0. A. Kennedy
Appears Sunday
"The History of Iron Manufacturing
In Ogden."
Maybe many didn't now there ever
was an Iron manufacturing csta.bllsh
ment here.
Well, there was. There was more
than one. And there was an attempt
made to make Ogden tho Pittsburgh
of the west.
Thousands was involved in the big
proposition. Carloads of machinery
were sent to Ogdcu and switched to
a spur near Hot Springs, the site -of,
the proposed big industrial establish-J
menl. !
The human interest story in con-i
nection with the steps taken to build
up the industry here and its tragic
collapse are told in an entertaining!
and authoritative article by O. A.
Kennedy. J
There .will be two installments to.
this glimpse of Ogden history, the first!
of which will appear in the Sunday i
Standard-Examiner under tho title:
"The History of Iron Manufacturing!
In Op-aen." j
There is many a chuckle In the story'
as the. eastern expert is taken Into !
Ogden's hills in search of iron ore and.
there is pathos, too, at the collapse,
of tho big scheme. j
About all that Is saved from the
wreck was a grand piano, which was
once taken on a tour by Madame Patti, !
the great singer. ' j
But you will want to read It fori
yourself. Watch Sunday's paper. J
