Here E tinge, weighing 190 pounds and looking tbe picture jf health, heard the physician pronoun' e him cured of tuberculosis In the prison at this time was a parole clerk with a great enthusiasm for his work. He had Eytingfl taken from the chronic ward and assigned to duty with him. hie called E;. tinge friend, put his hand upon his shoul der. made him partner of his own enthusiasm for the paroled prisoners who were trying to make good. This gave hytlnge a new ze6t for lift, and took 6ome of the cynicism out of him, 6o that It began to seetu a long time since he had regarded an honest man as a dub. In fact he began to have respect for tjonesty Along In February, 1912. came the inauguration of Arizona's first state hood governor, George W. P Hunt, and with It a complete change ,n prison policy And then, most Important of all, came Thomas Dreier, editor of "Asso ciated Advertising," and "Character," riding into the life of Eytinge behind tbe flap of an envelope. Young man as he is. Dreier is a 6ort of priest of the Melcbizedekian order in that esoteric group of writers of advertis ing philosophy who try to put soul and a spiritual ideal Into the body of the ink and paper salesman. Today, when Eytinge sits down and caet6 up hla debts to the world, he finds himself owing most to Dreier. "Dreier," he says, "made me look up to the law of service he taught me to give the best that was in me at al time and it would bring the best from others." Strange words, are they not to fall from the Hps of a life-termer? And yet they do not sound like cant Ey tinge spoke them soberly, reflectively almost gropingly, as he was trying to explain his debt to Dreier Here are some more from a letter of his: "I believe that he who loves must climb, not so much for himself, but tor the take of those others on whoso bent back he stood " But a new spirit comes stealing I Into our pHson management and a av attitude Into the public mind. j and both overlook lhl3 sealed-up sou!

A young Russian ha? made Ogden his home That of Itself is not re markable, but here is the Important point in the coming of this stranger: When this young man left hi home some .inn miles south of St. Peters burg and turned to America, he felt the first great throb of hope He had been receiving $4'1 a year, with board and lodging, for his work, and, had he been the most skillful he mlgi't have been paid S4." a ear.

What would our American boys do. if suddenly transferred from tbls country to Russia" What hopeless prospects they would face? Only when In contact with tho pc pie of that part of the world wner? life is bard, do we appreciate th? boundless opportunities of our own America. There is no tutur.' for th son of a poor man In many of the countrien of the old world, here nea: ; ly every man at tbe head of our grea; institutions of learning and commerce has come up from the common peo-pie. oi THE MURDER IN NEW YORK.

The rates jn Ogden are high enough Perhaps a little too high.

Those rates nr none too iow and should be kept at present tigurea or reluced.
