Peak Oecan-to-Oeean Highway " The better title would be "Pikes Peak or Cust. ' because any auto party ut tempting the trip will meet with the same disappointment that came to the pioneers who started out to search for gold in the Pikes Peak excitement. The state of Utah was taken in for many thousand dollars on the Midland Trail and this waete of state funds was made possible by the In tense desire of the people of Salt Lake to find a passway through the Intermountain country which would divert auto travel from the road that leads through Ogden around the north side of Great Salt Lake on I ELECTRIC PUMPS ON THE FARMS OF WEBER COUNTY. There are 69 electric pumping plants between Salt Lake and Plain City, supplying water for Irrigating purposes. That is the statement of a I representative of an electric supply house, who has installed many of the pumps. One of the largest plants Is near Plain City, where a company organ ized by Lyman Skeen has expended $7000 and is obtaining a flow of 9000 gallons a minute, lifted 10 feet from the bed of the Weber river. The elec tric motor is performing the worX of 35 horsepower and the electric cur rent is said to cost something less tbau 1 1-2 cents fier horsepower per hour, With the application of electric power large areas of land now above the canal lines may be brought under cultivation. There is a stretch of country of known fertility east of the Davl6 & Weber Counties Canal com pany's waterway on the sand ridge, which could be made highly produc tive by pumping water from the ca nal and eventually! this reclamation will be brought about as the success i of electric pumping is demonstrated. I CORN FROM CHINA FOR AMERICA. The farmers of Weber county are beginning to grow corn on a more extensive scale and silos are being constructed for the storage of the corn when it is cut up and prepared for cattle feeding Our farmers may have started on this new movement too late, as word comes that corn grown in China Is being imported ou the Pacific coast in large quantities since the new tar iff went into effect A letter from a Portland, Oregon, house, which has been doing an ex tensive business in corn grown in the corn states, says "So long as King Woodrow reigns at Washington I will not be able to place any South Dakota or Ne braska corn in this country'- We are receiving big shipments of corn from Manchuria and Argentine, and we can sell It below any quotations we can get from the east The Manchuria corn Is first class. As the Chinese can grow 100 bushels at about a tenth what it co3ts the South Dakota and Nebraska farmer to pro duce the same amount, you will 6ee that the farmers in those states will have to look to King Woodrow for another market, for their corn crops."

Thero wai much disappointment among local baseball fans over th closing week of the first half of t he Union Association schedule, ending Sunday. Tho poor Bhowing of the Boise team ngiin6t tho Sea Culls after Boise had been a close con tender for flr.t place, coupled with the transfer of one of the irrigators' best pitchers to Salt Lake and from Salt Lake to Helena In an effort to defeat Ogden, has caused endless comment and has created doubt ns I to the real merits of the Boise Salt Lake series. The fact that the Boise franchise was held in Salt Lake has been anything but a reassuring ele ment in favor of clean ball. If the second half of the season is to hold tho attention of the baseball enthusiasts, there must be a number of changes Klrst, there must be a thorough understanding as to the conduct of players on the field. A repetition of the rowdyism of the Salt Lake team would drive only the most de j voted fan6 from the games. Second, Boise men should own the franchise under which the Irrigators play. Third, one or two changes should be made in the list of umpires The position calls for men who not only know the game, and have keen judg ment. but are firm in resenting every form of bulldozjng by ungentlemanly piayers i Baseball, with the people of Og den, is a pastime, and there Is no desire on the part of the local fans to pay to see a few hoodlums in uni form dominate the ball grounds. The Ogden managers and the play ers under tbem are to be congratula ted on their devotion to clean sport, and had the other team been equally as well conducted, there could have been no complaint. WOULD PAY STOCKMEN TO MARKET IN OGDEN. Ogden's advantages a6 the center of a packing plant of large dimen sions are pointed out by the publicity bureau of the government forest serv. ice. which, noting the heavy shrink age in cattle and sheep shipped from the ranges of tho west to eastern markets, says "The heavy toll of shrinkage in weight of stock in transit can be appreciated when the 3 to 7 pounds of shrinkage per head of lambs, weth ers and ewes is multiplied by 8 1-2 or 6 cent6 per pound for a thousand head, making perhaps 40 cents apiece, and the 75 to 100 pouuds shrinkage on each of fifty or a hundred steers is calculated at 8 cents, say $5 to $8 apiece. From the Bighorn ranges the stock must be on the road two days and a night, to the nearest pack ing houBes, at Omaha, whereas with packing houses of capacity similar to those of Chicago, Omaha, or Kan sas City at Ogden, stock would be received from Nevada, Idaho, west ern Wyoming, and Nevada with a car ride of only one night "Great has been the advancement in Ogden's packing industry in the past five years, yet the 9tockmen themselves of the four states men tioned could benefit themselves im mensely by systematically stimulat ing this growth. Although the building of great packing houses In this city will undoubtedly follow the natural law of gradual extension in obedience to the commercial demand that unprofitable shrinkage and un necessary weight of freight and cost of feeding en route be reduced, yet stockmen can materially hasten the upbuilding of this western, local en terprise, and thus share more 1mm diately in its benefits, by lending heartily their co-operation and per haps capital. For no business 1b at present more prosperous than the stock business, and those flockmas ters who are now reputed to be plac ing their surplus Income in the build ing of fine hotelB and other invest iuents could gain doubly, not only in the dividends, but in lessening the present expense bill in marketing which in some instances exceeds the cost of production by joining with Ogden's broadgauged packers in es tablishing in this city a market for livestock capable of handling the product of four great livestock states "The objection to extensive pack lng industry in the mountain region has previously been advanced that range cattle are usually marketed I - ; ft j Ask your dealer for OUR Delicious Raisin Bread in Sanitary Wrappers 10c !

Now that the value of beet pulp and pea vines ha been demonstrated however, it means but a large exten sion of the beet nugar and pea can ning industries (equally desirable as the extension of meat packing) to hold and add weight to range-fatted stock Then the production of hay by irrigation and wheat by dry farm ing is extending, and stock feeding would improve their market " BUMPER CROPS MAY SAVE THE COUNTRY. "The splendid outlook for nearly all crops throughout the West and on the Pacific Coast is by far the most encouraging element in the whole situation. Here is genuine wealth newly created Our wheat crop is simply phenomenal and promise:; with its yield of over 900,000,000 bushels to add fully $700,000,000 of new wealth within the next few weeks, the harvest being well advanced." mat is the statement ot a lew York banker, who further sayr: I "Our railroads are already brine ing out idle cars for the purpose of marketing this vast crop. Bankers and merchants in the grain belt are exceedingly optimistic, knowing full well that the farmers with well filled coffers ulll be free spenders. Thr big jobbing housos of the West are openly confident The agricultural Implement concerns are looking for ward to a good business and a free payment of farmers' loans which had been accumulating. Low priced au tomobile concerns are also expecting large sales to the farmers. The fruit crop is good in almost all sections, and the corn crop is progressing sat isfactorily under favorable conditions in spite of the absence of warm weather Current estimates are for a crop of 2,900,000,000 bushels, which would be the largest crop on record except that of 1912 which amounted to 3.124,000,000 The only important I crop not doing reall well is cotton. the condition of which was reportec'. at 79.6 against 81.8 last year, but the acreage is large, 36,900:000, hav ing been exceeded but once, last year, and the latest advices say the crop is now growing well. Allow j ing for the usual deterioration in July and August, there is still time for more than average crops of both cotton and corn, and the agricultural outlook as a whole is one that af fords the soundest available basis for encouragement. One good authority estimates that our agricultural prod ucts this year, including animals, will probably reach 11 or 12 billion dol lars, compared with 10 billions last year. Next to the crops the best supporting influence Is cheap money Funds are abundant for ail sound purposes." -oo Skin Peeling Nature's Aid to New Complexion Ordinarily mcrcnlizer) a Is n natural ! beautlfler.

Rassweller delivered a strong sermon yesterday morning in the First Methodist church. A num ber of beautiful organ selections play ed b Miss Vera Frey and vocal num bers by Miss Rosamond Laird, formed a most pleasing part of the service Rev. Rassweller took as his subject "Christ, the Author of Our Liberty,' and spoke from the text Gal: 6:1, Stand fa6t therefore In the liberty wherewith Christ has set us free" In part, he said. "As this is so near to Independence Day, it is fitting for us to note how much we owe to Christ for our civil liberties as well as our spiritual free dom Christ declared that his mission was to 'preach deliverance to the cap tives and to set at liberty those that were bruised And this was true not only spiritually, but clvally. indus trially commercially and Intellectual ly. Christ came to set us free from the bondage of earthly tyrants as well as from the bondage to Satan to break the shackles of tyrants In government or commerce as well as JS? yoke of the Pwer of sin "Christ was the author of our char ter of liberties. He was the pro phecy of the better day; he sounded tne keynote of our national anthem; He laid the foundation of the citadel u, Heedom; He carved tho letters which spell 'liberty.' and prepared them to make the arch over the por tals of emancipation, though it took us many centuries to set them into place. Love, "The first word was lore. The lib erty that Christ preached was not license to do evil, or liberty from the restraint of law. as many think but It was liberty ruled by love With out love liberty means too often the opportunity for might to oppress weakness 'Only the Golden Rule can break the rule of gold.' Wo never can have the golden day of brotherly co-operation of which the socialist dreams till we have In mens hearts brotherly lovei nnrj jPgMfi S the gre;it est lnsplror of love that the world has ever known Outside of Jesus the world would know but little of unselfish loe Independence A free state cannot be built with people who have not the spirit of independence of thought and coQBcl ense as well as of personality But I In the time of Christ, men were not valued because 0f their personality, but because of their worth to the stite. The Spartans and the early Romans killed their weakly offspring because they would be of no value to the state, as in fact the Esqulmox have done up to the present time. The state was the unit But Christ came to free the individual and make J him the unit, lift men from the mass up onto the pedestal of personality, and declare that one man was wortli more than all the heavens. Fach man was to be a son of Gad and a member of a greater kingdom And when j men learned this they began to defy earthly tyrants They were freed from the tyranny of the mass: they j refused to worship the emperor or his I idols; they faced undaunted the dun I geon and the stake. Following the liberating teachings of the reformers, especially those of Calvin, they felt the strivings of democracy and re fused to submit their consciences to persecuting kings or popes And from such efforts to free the Individual before his God, came our Puritan commonwealth and our American liberties as well as those of Holland ?nd England Such men who had been freed by Christ could not be en slaved And no nation is fit for self government, the consciences of whose citizens have not been freed from the rlnmlnlnti nf man Brotherhood. "It is the spirit of brotherhood that gives us liberty. But what does the world outside of Christ know of brotherhood0 He, our great Elder Brother, has established brotherhood among men Why the world In Christ's time knew nothing of a uni versal brotherhood To be sure Greece and Rome had a sort of de mocracy or republic but it was only a democracy of artistocrats in which the lower classes had no share and j to whom all other nations were as a j prey. ' Brotherhood implies at least equal itv of all men before the law. And this is the cornerstone of our free- j rlnm Rut the unrient world knew nothing of such a principle. The Ro man citizen had his legal rights which were denied to all others The slave had no rights whatever, and could be k'lled at the whim of his master. And it is still the disposition of hu inanity to deny to the weak that 'fair play and square deal,' that they de mand for themselves. But Christ exalted the rights of the submerged and the outcast. He declared that the widow had put Into the treasury more than the rich, and that the outcast publican was more Justified in his prayer than the self righteous pharisee, and condemned the rich pharlsees because they searched sea and land for one con vert and yet devoured widows houses, and it was He that challenged self righteous pharlsees not to judge the outcast except by a law that they were to be judged by themselves. Christ is the sreat leveller of human ity. He levelled us all down onto a common platform of sin, and then lifted us up onto a common platform of free salvation. Truth. "'Ye shall know the truth and the truth 6hall make you free.' said Jesus And whereer man has learned from the dominion of tyrants, from the bondages to the customs of the un godly world and from the tyranny of cast. And a free nation demand intelligent citizens. A nation of ignor ant peons may be suppressed by die tators like Mexico lias been, but not a nation of intelligent people w-ho know their birthright in Christ Jesus "Unless we are willing to yield our ways, or our privileges or our power to suit the needs of others we can not have true liberty And this is what selfish humanity does not want to do Law tries to compel them, but how impossible is the task except in the most glaring cases But Chris tianity teaches ns to sacrifice our selves for others even to turning the other cheek to our oppressors, and going the other mile with those who compel us. Thus b the spirit or giving up our way to the needs of others we have a society where we can dwell together as brethren in unit) EXCURSION NORTH OREGON SHORT LINE July lfi Very low rates to northern Utah and to Idaho points Long lim its.

At a bridge, narrow- defile, or other place where the sheep can be obliged j to pass as nearly as possible in sin gle file, a band is met by the ranger who counts the exact number, exclu she of lambs. The naturally timid sheep imagine that the ranger has ulterior motives and try to get by as quickly as pos sible. The short but lively ordeal of counting a band of sheep, can. therefore, be well appreciated by the young stenographer called upon to pass the "150-word a minute test" for 13 minutes.

S Hutchinson arrived at his home yesterday evening with hl3 fam ily from an automobile ride. Just In time to prevent the place being bur glarized After reaching the home, the fam ily took seats on the front porch. Mr Hutchinson drove the automobile to the private garage in the rear of the house He then returned to the front of the house and. in trying the latch key on the door, found that it was unlocked. This aroused his suspi cions and he made a search of the I house and found that a burglar had been busy during the absence of the family. Bureau drawers had been ransacked and on the table he found a quantity of silverware tied in a neat package. It was thought that the burglar was in the house when they approached and left in such a hurry he forgot to take anything with him Undergoes Operation Mrs. Walter E.Read. widow of Walter E.

At the request of Huntsville farm ers, and John Halls who represents the extension division of the state agricultural college as an organizer, Dr. E. G Peterson, director of the extension division of the agricultural college, met with the county board of commissioners and explained that there has heen made n appropriation by congress of $10,000 for Utah to old the farmers in the many intricate questions that arise on the farm, and that each county will be entitled to a part of the appropriation, when avail able, for the employment of a demon strator. The professor stated that the entire cost to keep such a man would be about $2500 annually Mr Peterson explained that the demonstrator would be selected by the board of directors of the agricul tural college and that the state would be responsible for his work and would vouch for his efficiency. Should a man be selected who failed in the work assigned to him, Mr Peterson said, he would be discharged and there would be no charge against the county for his services. The county would not be required to make any appropriation for the expenses Inci dent to employing a demonstrator until the end of six mouths after his employment and that the county would be required to make payments under the obligation only twice a year The plan in Utah, as explained by tie director, has been to have the county pay about 50 per cent or the cost of keeping a demonstrator, the state being responsible for the other 50 per cent It was explained to the board or commissioners thn it is unlikely that Weber county can be included this year as the appropriation made by congress has been nearly exhaustea a number of other counties in the ttate having taken advantage of the appropriation and employed demon strators However, Mr. Peterson sa'a he would like to know what the dis" position of the board of commission ers Is. so that Weber county mav be i included at the earliest possible Line The government appropriation I ol 110,000 annually is to be augmented ' miClh922e:ir UUtU " ShaM re,lCh 26-0 Representatives from Huntsville I Eden, Liberty.
