I TO THE TOP
OF THE RANGE.
There is a movement to improve
the road through North Ogden canyon
and from the summit leading to Og
den valley construct n driveway to the
top of the mountain on the north side
of Ogden canyon
This would give Ogden a road to one
of the nearby peaks and greath add to
the tourist attractions.
A good auto road to the summit of
the North Ogden drive and even a
trail from there to the top of the
range would draw thousands of travelers.

REUNION.
In Des Moines, Iowa, the old sol
diers of the Civil war have gathered
in reunion. Sixty years ago they
were the young men uf the nation go
ing to war. Today they are the old
men of an army Imperishable in the '
memory of a grateful nation They
are moving slowly and cautiously be-J
cause the years have weighted them'
down with infirmltios, but they are as
sprightly aB ever in spirits when they j
recall the service they rendered in
the time of national peril.
The Grand Army of the Republic
had Impressive parados back in the
eighties of the last century. Then the
boys in blue could rally a mighty
lorce. Now the parade bus ceased to.
be the big feature of their reuuions. '
How time is flying!
Here In Ogden the same dwindling '
process la evident. The most vigorous i
veterans of the post are none tool
strong and many of the heroes of )
1561-65 are under a heavy load f
yean.
"It will bo only a few ears when the !
veterans will cease to assemble and 1
the stories of tho Civil war be no long

MASSACRE ON
SATURDAY.
At a conference in London, Balfour
announced be had Information that aj
general massacre of Greeks and Ar
menians in Smyrna was to occur on
next Saturday.
If the Turks carry out their plans or
annihilation of the helpless refugees
in the destroyed city, there should be
ome concerted action by the powers !
to Inflict puniBhmont on the butchers. J
But the Turk has been committing j
these outrages over a long period of i
time and always he has escaped with-1
out paying a penalty, except at the I
end of the world war when he was '
reduced in territorial rights. Now he
is about to recover his provinces and
that will encourage him to go on with
his massacres.
Long ago the Turk would have been
placed in a straltjacket had the Euro
pean powers avoided quarreling over j
the division of Turkey. The present
aggressive move of the Turk has boen
made possible by the greed of Great
Britain and France. Both countries
have been maneuvering to control
great areas of the dismembered em
pire and disappointment has prompted
the French to attempt to check the
aggressions of Groat Brltinn. Had
neither country sought to greatly prof
it by the breaking up of the Sultan's
domain, tho TurkB would have been
held in restraint and there would
have been no massacres.
I SLOW TO
DISARM.
Treaties undergo modification in the
face of war. Word now comes from
Washington that there will be no
more scrapping of warships under
the five-power naval treaty until af
fairs In the Near East clear up.
The statement openly is made that
some of the signatories to the treaty
might change their plans regarding
the scrapping of war vessels.
Under the strain of the prospects of
war, none of the nations would be
other than slow to observe the strict
requirements of the treaty of reduced
armaments. If a war should break out
in the Near East, involving any of the
threat powers, the disarming of all the
nations would be discontinued.

PRESTO!
Rainmaker Hattleld is the talk of
Italy. They had a five months' drouth
over there. Italian government sent
Ian S. O. S. for Hatfield, reputed to
have made the heavens open and pour
idown heavy rains in various parts of
our country and Canada.
Hatfield set up his rigging near Na
i pies. Presto! Cornea a young cloud
burst it used to be maybe, still is a
military saying that the thunder of
cannon precipitates heavy rains.
Albert Stiger, the Austrian, prob
I ably had this in mind back in 1896
when he Invented the small cannon
that is URed to stave off and break up
hailstorms
Prof. D. W. Hering. writing In the
Scientific Monthly, says he has inves
tigated all kinds of "artificial weather
'control" and that he is convinced Sti
'ger's method really workB.
The cannon theoretically break up
the clouds.
Rainmaker Hatfield's method is
kept secret. He was offered and won
;$4000 an inch for making it rain at
.Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada And
now he will bring a big roll back from
! Italy.
Scientists of the Mellon Institute in
Pittsburg are experimenting to pre
'vent fogs. Laboratory results are en
'couraglng, so the method will be tried
out on rivers.
Tho method? It's simple. Spray the
river's surface with a chemical that
will prevent mists from rising and
condensing into fogs,
Dr. Hcrlng In his scientific article
says that weather control by artificial
means is not regarded as unscientific
and that meteorologists are not hope
less of accomplishing it.
C. F. Marvin, of the United States
weather bureau, steps In, however,
and warns farmers against swlndleru
in the guise of weather wizards. A
large crop of these fakers is sprouting
jup, claiming to make rain, stop rain,
inrevent frost, rerulate heat and cold
(and charm tho winds.
Some of them may be practical But
farmers should remember that tho
genuine thing always has i is counterfeiters.

DEBT.
Bonds issued by American munici
palities and states from the first of
the year to September totaled $902,
065,118. Unless this pace is checked, it will
not be many years until states and
mynlcapilltioH will hare themselves
mortgaged to an amount exceeding
the national debt, Maybe they are
closer to it now than anyone imag
ines. Here is real financial peril. Tax
payers should shift their attention
from the national debt to reckless
spending by states and cities.

rather precipitately.

back to see the Kr;iy car lurklnp not
less than a mile ami a half astern
the Delorme touring car driven by
: Leon keeping a quarter of a mile In
the rear of tht' llmOUSlne.
These relative positions remained
approximately unchanged during
DlOBt Of the light hours of that long
evening, despite the terrific paco
which Jules set In tho open coun-
i try.
At about seven they dined from
the hamper which, with Llane's
lewi l case In Its leather dlsgutso of
.a wimple traveling bag, constituted
all the limousine's load of luggage.
I Lanyard passed sandwiches through
the front window to Jules, who
munched them while driving like a
I speed maniac, and with the same ap
palling nonchalance washed thorn
down with a tumbler of champagne.
A luminous lilac twilight vied with i
the .street lamps of Caen when the
limousine rolled through the city.
Lanyard conferred with Jules through
the window
"Reyund the town.'" ho said, 'you
will stop. I think It would be advis

"Ah-h!" Jules used the tone of
I one who perceives enllghtenemnt as
a blinding flush "Marthe and Leon

I shan't shed a solitary tear If some
thing sod happens to them In this
I bus tonight."
The plan was carried out in a
'suburb of Caen; tho gray touring
j car tore by in a cloud of dust as
i Lanyard and Liane shifted to the
j touring car with Jules as driver.
Lanyard established himself in tho
tonneau.
"How long. Jules will Loou 1
, need ?"
"Five minutes, madame, if he takes
his time about it."
They drew away from the limou

Into it.
in foui- minutes by Lanyard'n
watch, a blue-White glare leapt quiv
ering past the bend, and lay horizon
tal with the road as tho car bored

"Shoot. Jules follow his rear

Phe car swung out into the main
highway. Far ahead the red sar

They were swooping down a long

there sounded a grinding crash, the
noise of a stout fabric rent and
crushed with the clash and clatter
of shivered glass.
