I DANDELION HAS REDEEMING QUALITIES The dandelion Is a most offensive weed to the man who cultivating a iawn. is kept busy digging up the In truder with little yellow blossoms but the government experts on edible weeds declare The leaves of the plant are good to eat and they recommeml that the weed be prepared for food in much flu- same manner that spl i ach is cooked Describing the uses of weeds. ;i government publication sas hile the leaves of the dandelion are always nutritious, they acquire :i bitter flavor as they approach matur ity Hence the best leaves for edil purposes .ire the yoUDg sprouts that shoot forth in early sprint;. Th- In ter flavor of the obit r leaves may be avoided, however, by boiling in two water. Most of these weed6, that ought to be classed as vegetables, have their season In t'je spring. According to the best medical opinion, they than perform a dual function; for all of them In addition to the nutritive qualities they possess, are in a mil 1 1 degree medicinal In effect, clearing j from the blood and tissues the stac j nant humors of thij winter season. Chief among the edible weeds of the United States is the dandelion 1 The edible portion of I he plant are the leaves which grow close to the ground, rarely extending more than an inch In height The plant is. when fully grown about six or eight inches in width measuring across the breadUi of leaves which have a notched or serrated appearance, and, before they are plucked, are as crisp as frosb lettuce They rapidly wither, how ever, when separated from the root If the dandelion should take the place of spinach on the tables of Og den it might not be long before the owners of lawns would accept the weed as worthy of a place among the grasses and flowers that enrich the appearance of so many homes in this T. city- I THE OPENING OF THE LEAGUE SEASON Today is the beginning of the league basebull season From nov, on to the close of the contest for the pennant, the fans of Ogden are to be possessed of valid excuses for making Irequent trips in the direction of Glenwood park Determining the standing of the clubs will supply many of our young sters with their first real desire to learn that part of their arithmetic which deals with percentage During the next five months no hero will compare with the stars of the local team And with the winning of the league honors, the names of the members of the Ogden team shall be inscribed In a niche of fame Baseball is the great American game, and. in the eyes of the aver age American no one is so much to be commiserated with as he who can not appreciate the fine points of the game or become uncontrollably en thused over the scoring of the win ning run by the home team. There is real joy in league basebnll for the fans, and we know of no amusement that affords so much wholesome pastime for young or old. no ARMED TO THE TEETH FIFTY YEARS AGO While we are scowling at Japan and the subjects of the mikado are returning our frowns, a peace confer ' ence is to be held in St Louis, under I the auspices of the American l'eace I society The society, in its literature, claims that two billion dollars is spent an nually tor war and war equipment. What a waste of human energy ami what a misdirection of resources! There is no good reason wh) nation al disputes cannot be settled as are individual differences There should j be an International court capable of commanding the peace. As nations we are in the position of a lawless community where might Is right When the Central Pacific railroad was being built, a camp was established on the east side of Prom ontorj Point, at the foot of the grade that led over the hill The graders were rough characters and nearly ev ery man carried a gun It was not long until a graveyard was started and the little city of tents became known as Dead Man'; Gulch- Every roughneck with a grievance waited to get ' the drop" on the other fellow. Anarchy reigned supreme until ' the viyi'antes" were organized. The big nations remind one of the frontier railroad laborers with guns strapped to their waists, ready to shoot on real or fancied wrongs. WAR TALK IN WASHINGTON OVER JAPANESE QUESTION A special dispatch sent out from Washington yesterday by John Tem ple Graves, contains the following war sentiments One of the high officials of the gov ernment and one especially close to the president, declared "I believe that everv man I have met in Washington is in favor of j war I am myself in favor of wai but I would not be quoted ae saying so for my right hand But If the officials of the White House and the state deportment are mum, there is no lark of frankness and open fearless expression among the officers of the army and navy who are ga'hered a' Washington Almost to a man these epaulet ted officers of higher or lower rank walk with firm tread and with resolute months and do not hesitate to tell you privately that the army and navy are unaltei: bly opposed to bring made to "eat dirt In this matter with Japan "We are not for war,' they say "but we are for maintaining the self respect of this nation and the rights of the state of California We do not fear Japan on land or sea and all that we ask and hope is that our govern ment shall behave with firmness and HI You Are Not Only Saving Money but you'll be better dressed when you wear i I one of our SALE SUITS I We can convince you these suits are better ! values than you will find anywhere.

H Stated that he had noted It. but had no comment to make upon It at this time Meantime, this great country would like to know whether these conditions In our navy are belnc Im proved or whether we are standing still, as Mr Bryan would have us d and wall until we are attacked before we prepare to defend ourselves " Japan's open (brents of war are B source or irritation to the American people, and. though nothing come of the pteseni contention, a feeling of resentment will rankle until, at boot time in the future, there will arise another disagreement, and then look out The .Japanese are ns unyielding and as proud as the Americans. They will go on accumulating a pent-up aversion lor us. as they did for the Russians dating many years prior to the Russian-Japanese war. The sup pressed dislike will be controlled for a time, but eventually there will be a bursting of the bounds of restraint. When the psychological moment ar rives, which may be ten years henr or as early as this summer neither country will desire peace nnd war will come The California question cannot he solved by Bryan The secretary of state may postpone the crisis, but two years from now, If not during thin session, the legislature of that state will resume the pleasant pastime of prodding the Japanese California is -cso, eri on maintaining v bite su premacy in that state, and to do so must check the aggressions of the lit tle brown men by legislative enact ment, perhaps by deliberate diBCrlm ination If there is no relief offered by legislation then there is danger of mob violence such us was inflicted on the Chinese before the Chinese re Ktrlctlon law was signed by Chester Arthur That would provoke a more violent spirit of resentment in Japan than has attended the attohipts at anti-alien legislation From any point of view the situa tion presents serious aspects SUPREME COURT DiSBARSATTORNEY Salt Lake, April 29. Acting on the report of Charles Baldwin, the refer ee, the supreme court yesterday dis barred Arthur A Platz and ordered his name stricken from the rolls of the court on the ground that he is nn "unfit, unsafe and Improper person to be Intrusted with the powers of an attorney at law " Serious charges were filed against Platz last July by the grievance com Rlittee of the State Bar association The supreme court appointed Baldwin as a referee to tako evidence on the charges Baldwin filed his report last January, and subsequently the court listened to arguments In the case Platz appeared in his own behalf The specific charges against Plat', were numerous, the principal one be ing that he had dealt dishonestly with certain clients in money matters and had succeeded In mulcting one client In particular of more than $1,000 Tt was further shown that he had appro priated to himself money collected by him belonging to Attorney Harry j Robinson while engaged in a law prac tice partnership with Robinson The supreme court declines to set out in Its opinion the findings of the referee, taking the stand that they are better not published, though they are of record in the court, and can be read by any who desire Speaking of certain charges of misconduct al leged to have occurred prior to the ldmittance of Platz to the Utah bar, which the referee held were Imma terial to the Issue, tne supreme court rules that such misconduct Is mater lal in that It corroborates the other charges In showing the unfitness of Platz to practice law oo INCREASING EGG PRODUCTION BY CHARLES WEEKS, Palo Alto. Like produces like," is one of the i laws of evolution Seeds produce their kind without tail and the prog I ress of the plant depends almost en ' tirely upon the environment from year to year If the largest and strongest mangel wurtzel beets .'are saved for teed each year a little prog ress can be made, and if the Boll In which these seeds art planted is fer tilized and water thoroughly and ev ery scientific condition brought to bear In producing a lug perfect beet, then the progress of this particular selection of beets will be decidedly marked. If seeds are planted in poor soli with no culture or attention they will degenerate. So it Is with animal life The en vironment has much to do with the progress of any family of the animal kingdom and plays equally as Impor tant a part as selection In wild ani mals It Is a ease of the survival of the fittest generation after generation un til extreme hardiness Is inherited. In the wild state only the strongest sur ive The elements and tho struggle tor food do the culling and leave only the best for reproduction In the wild jungle fowl from which our hen came we have vigor and symmetry. The prairie hen, the grouse, the pheasant. I thl quail, all are uniform and hardy and immune to disease. Our domestic hen Is protected from the rigors and climate and the strug gle for food and consequently has not the disposal of the weaker born each generation and unless man steps in and does this sepa-aijnp of the "well zorn' from those of low vita In n large percentage of culls will be rais ed year after year (fan lias tWO fac tors with which to improve his flock ond those are elimination and care Elimination without proper care of stock will get nowhere. Care witli out elimination of low vitality will get a little way, hut not far. The best can- and environments for the hen with the strictest elimination of fh wenker horn will eaj to marvelous producinc powers Our poultry men. in their eagerness for lnre flocks hold "ii in every pullet possible and breed year after year from every thing, weak or strong, until the coun try is overrun with a degenerate lot of poultry in Hie wild fowl so much energy is used in withstanding climatic condi tions and so much energy used in the search for food thut it is only at the most favorable seasons of the year that Oggfl arc produced at all. and tin is usually in the springtime, when an imal and plant life Is most abundant and nourishing We should take a hint from this and i;ive our hens spring conditions the year around, with sncc ui. nf L'reen food in abun dance and animal food. With cor rect houses and yards to protect the hens from unfavorable climatic condi tlons and the greatest variety of wholesome and nourishing food in nbundance the domestic hens turn the energy thus saved to egg production The selection of the fittest for repro duction is left tor man in the domes tic state, and unless man does thl 1 selection ver carefully and thorough ly many hens are left in the breedinc yards that are totally unfit Vigor, stamina hardiness and a8Bimtlating powers can be detected In the lit He chicks only a few days old These should be marked. The early matur ing pullets and cockerels are the ones to save for breeders. The pulicts that drag along until thev are 7 or 8 month3 old before laying are totally unfit for breeder. The pullets thai lay the first are those that are born with the egg producing Instinct If these early layinc pullets are housed' in deep, roomy open front houses and are fed the very best nourishing diet with all the green feed they will consume every day they Will be in a condition Hie second year to throw (hicks thai should be better than themselves Progress of a race can be made only by perfecting the high est powers of the individual By lection of the best and by making this best excel itself hv providing ery condition possible is the only1 wav of forcing producing powers to a j higher plane The condition of the parent stock at the time of mating is ' one moment when a forward st . ; can be mode toward egg production, and the daily developing of the pro ductive powers of the Individual by proper environments arc the periods In which the forward movement pro- coeds Take the parent stock at the sea i son of the year when they are in th-3 verj highest state of condition ami take the strongest and earliest matur Ing chicks from this mating and ev ery dav give them Hie best care pos sible, and take these and mate again at the highest moment of condition j and so on for generations, and prop- J ress will be Inevitable To produce eeps requires a breed that has producing tendencies. The Mediter ranean breeds are noted ns egR pro ducers The most of the heavier i 1 rieties use too much of their feed for 1 I flesh production to make them profit able as egg producers When wc make layers of the heavy breeds we can do so only by subtracting from J their flesh producing tendencies and; turning the current of energy toward egg production The dairyman that would install beef cattle for milk producers will j have to wait many Fenerations and work the herd over by strict selec tion before he can pet milk in paying quantities The egg farmer must se- I lect the breed that will give the max- j Imum quantity of eggs with a mini mum consumption of feed, j oo HAS CONFIDENCE IN DOCTOR'S CURES Washington, April 29 Former Senator William Lorimer of Illinois today will appeal to the United States public health service to detail at leaet one of Its exports to inquire into the alleged "cure" for tubercu- I losis said to have been discovered by Dr Peter P. Duket of Chicago. The former tenctor arrived yesterday and promptly made an engagement for o personal interview with Surgeon Gen- j e,ral Rupert Blue Mr. Lorimer expressed confidence I In tbe Chicago physicians discovery.' He declared that more than 100 cn6ee are beiug treated successfully and that the treatment used by Dr Duket has been tested by a committee of the most prominent physiclanB In Chicago. So anxious is Mr. Lorimer I to have ihe government inquire 'ntol the supposed 'cure'" that he an nounced his willingness to bear the expense of sending a federal expert to make the examination. The public health service now is engaged in an investigation of the al leged 'cure" of Dr. Frederick F. j Fri.dmann. n inquiry Into the Duket treatment probably also will i be made. oo WOMAN'S ESTATE GOES TO ASYLUM Seattle.
