I Deliciously wholesome with baked apples, stewed prunes, sliced bananas or other fruits. The Shredded Wheat Company, Niagara Falls, N. Y. CHAS. IIMHIUE ON CHURCH REUNION Salt Lake, Jan. 19. ' Behold, I have et before thee an open door, and no man can shut it. ' was the basis of "The Open Door text taken by Charles A. Smiirthwaite In his address last night at the chape! of the Reor ganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Mr. Smurthwalte's remarks were directed toward the pos sibility of reuniting the two branches of the Mormon church. His address In part follows: "The question at this time is not whether reunion would be desirable. I am not prepared to say that It would not be desirable if the mes sage delivered by the church at its inception was effective In the promo tion of spiritual uplift In the lives of men and women, and by which the original unity was produced, the elim ination of things since introduced, by which disunion came about, would bp expected to a?aln bring about har mony and peace. From the layman's : point of view that would seem to be true "Well, then, if God gae certain rev J elations to Joseph Smith, and these revelations have been changed brlng I fng tribulation among and to the peo-1 pie, it would appear to be the simple : thing to revert back to the original I revelations and repudiate the later and contradictory ones The very first revelation recorded In the church I book of Revelations declares: " 'What I, the Lord, have spoken, T have spoken, and I excuse not my self, and though the heavens and the ' earth should pass away, my word I snau nni pass away, out snail all be fulfilled. And the spirit ; beareth record, and the record is i true, and the truth abideth forever j and ever.' "It would appear from this that fundamental revelations and un ' changeable And so we find on the j subject of marriage that the Ird was very careful, in instituting the de ; livery of his word to the Shakers. who deined marriage, that the elders I should say to them that whoso for ' biddeth to marry is not ordained of I God, for marriage is ordained of God ! unto man; thereforo it is lawful that he should have one wife, and they shall be one flesh, and all this that earth might answer the end of is creation; and that it might be filled with the measure of man, according to his creation before the word was made.' "It would appear that the Innova tion of plural marriage was not de signed, and if now repudiated, as it must be if the intergrlty of the origi nal message shall be preserved, it would go a long way toward reunit ing the church "The original message regarding tithing was the payment ot 10 per cent of "Interest" annually, not 10 per cent of "income." as subsequently changpd by Brisham Young In his first apostolic epistle. The revela tion on tithing deals with property, not with wages, and is the basis upon which the owners of property or mon ey shall be assessed for the further ance of the work of the church The intent evidently was that the richer members of the church should bear the burdens, while the poorer brethren should support the church financially on the principle of the "widow's mite.' paying what they could. "The change from 'intprest' to 'in come' has brought about exactly what the Pharisees were charged w ith doing to their religious devotees binding them with 'heavy burdens J and grievous to bp borne, and lay them on men's shoulders, hut they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers ' This was the charge which the Master laid at the door of the church in Jerusalem, and no doubt it had as much to do with bis condemnation by the priests as anything else he may have said, and prohablv more "A reversion to the open door of the orliinal message would wonder fully relieve the people. It would take away the burden of paying to the church practically all of their profits, as they now do if they pay in per cent of. their income. Instead they would pay but one-tenth of their prof It or "interest. ' as seems to have been originally Intended I would leave them with nine-tenths of their profit or 'interest' for social, educa ! tlonal, industrial, commercial and po litical uses. ' In the beginning the church was on a democratic basis. It is the duty of the people to keep it there If there is any thing in their church that ravors of ecclesiastical aristocracy, or tyranny, it should be swept away God opened the door; let no man shut it." uu AGED PRIEST DEAD.

I. as a citizen and patron of the public school, feel that I have a right to sub mlt the following questions to the superintendent, asking for direct artd comprehensive answers. So far. Su perintendent Mills and Prof. Peterson have evaded the questions askej them The people are trying to understand this Innovation and it is due them that, those who are virtually forcing this system on us, should be very ex plicit It has been said that the op position com..s from personal nreju dice. Never having met Superintend ent Mills, that assertion cannot apply to my opposition. I am asking for information. First, what reason can you give I hat a boy who does "practical wont" to help support himself does better work in school than the boy who does not work ? Second, why Is "work with no I school" better for the pupil than "with school and no work?'' Third, to whom does the advantage accrue when the school day is length ened, the pupil or the teacher' Why' Fourth, if the advantage of th? I half day system is that half a day Is I for study and half a day for work why not have the manual training in the school occupy half the time? Fifth, name the occupations avail able for boys and girl6 at the pres cnt time, which are beneficial in an educational line with their school studies? Explain fully and clearly how the "new plan will make the school fit the child? ' Seventh is not working to earn money during part of the school ses slon commercializing the school? If not, why? Eighth, how do you know that an employer will take the time to fill out a monthly report card for an em ployee to accommodate the school Superintendent0 Ninth, In what way will the grading and grouping of the pupils be better under the half-day system and in what way will it benefit the home? Tenth, why will the fifth -and sixth grades be more difficult to change than the grades above or below? Eleventh, why count the economy to the tax payer or community by the resignations of the teachers at the end of- the year, unless they are forced to resign by the introduction of the new system? Twelfth, by whose authority and by what law in the statute has the change been made in the senior hign school? Thirteenth, In what way will the re duction of the school tax be made, and how will it be a saving if all the boys and girls choose to remain in school the whole day? Fourteenth, why have not the com ments of the press on the half-day-school been published, as promised by Prof Peterson? Fifteenth, if It is true, as Superin tendent Mills stated, that a boy who has had only the training the coun try school affords, and who has been compelled to work part of his school year, can do better work in the high school than the boy who has been through the graded schools of Ogden, is it not a reflection on the effi ciency of the schools of which Su perintendent Mills has had jurlsdic tlon for the past four years? It is easy to make statements, but the public would like to have these statements verified. I ask these questions not alone for myself, but for the benefit of the citi zens of Ogden. ( Signed) KATE S HILLI ARL) BULLION GAMP TO GET RAILROAD J E. Sexton, manager of the Eu reka & Palisade railroad, was in town yesterday and authorized the publl cation of the news that his company has decided to build a new railroad into the mining camp of Bullion, and that he has a corps of surveyors now In the field, who are making the tina' survey, and that as soon as the weath er will permit work will be rushed on the branch line and by June 1 trains will be running out of Bullion drawing long trains of ore cars, says the Elko Free Press The rails and ties have been ordered and the build ing of the road is an absolute certain ty. The new road will leave the uiain line of the Eureka & Palisade at Raine s slding: and on account of the steep grades the road will be about fourteen miles long.

A3 the grade will be almost entirely away from the mines, this will be in favor of the heavy loads, as they can be run to the main track almost by gravity. The mines are about three miles from the summit of the moun tains, but the grade on this side will not be over 1 per cent. There are thousands and thousands of tuns of low grade ore in this dis trict that can be shipped when the railroad is completed, ore that will go from $10 to $15, and which can be mined, shipped and milled at a fair profit. It is estimated that right now there are 20,000 tons of this class of ore on the dumps that has been thrown aside There are ledges of low grade ore on which work has been discontinued, which the new road will make profitable. Bullion has come back and Is ono of the very few old mining camps that has been able to be made to be come a producer again Engineers say that it is possible that the new record will far outshadow the ship ments made from this famous camp w hen millions of dollars were sent out In the shape of the white meial. uu Ievi P.

An interesting story j3 told by Phil lip Stover, in his drama, 'Maud Mul ler," and as interpreted last night by the Arlngton-Greenw ell players at the Ogden Theater, was enjoyed by a capacity audience. The drama was well staged and madp a pleasing farewell performance for the popular players, who leave for Boise, Idaho, at the end of the present week, for a month's engagement. The story deals with a country! maid w ho is wooed and won by a I rich judge. They fall in love during the haying time and at a husking bee, to which the girl, "Maud Muller" 16 taken by the judge, who proposes to her and is accepted The difference in their stations in life, makes the match very objectionable to the aris tocratic sister of the judge, who does all in her power to break the encaep. ment The two are wedded, however, and taking adv antage of the judge's busi ness cares, which prevent him from paying much attention to bis wife, the sister makes her believe that an other woman is the cause of the ne glect. The wife leaves her husband s root and goes to the home of a friend In New York. She writes a letter to het husband, asking permission to re turn and the letter is returned, with the words 'As ye sow, so shall ye reap." written on the envelope. She is taken ill and ber father, who has found her. and her friends take her to a camping place in the woods of Maine. Here she recovers her health and after a long search is found by ber husband, whose love for her had caused him to suffer through her de sertion The sister confesses to hav ing intercepted the letter and return ing it and husband and wife are re united. The play gives excellent opportunl ty to the members of the cast for emotional, character and comedv work Mayme Arington, in the title role was a winsome country maid in the first part of the play and did some good emotional work in the lat ter acts. As the husband. Judge ayne, Richard Tracy did some ex I cellent acting, his interpretation of the part being most satisfying Orville Spurrier has probably never sunk his own personality into that of the character he was portraying, dur ing his Ogden engagement, as he did last night in the role of Nate Harpio. the mountain poet. In addition to the playing of the character, he got some rich comedy out of the part. To A J. Cole, much commendation is due for his fine playing of Daniel Muller, the father of Maud. Edward Moran is well cast in the double role of Walter Mayforth and John Tru man and Florence Eisen essayed the difficult part of Theodora Wayne, the sister of the Judge, in her usual fin ished manner. -T- OH, WELL, SCOOP NEEDED ONE ANYWAY " N ! ,f ' " ' '' p" j, w 1 fMtvu-r J
