What arc the Germans aiming at in northern and western Belgium1 They are reported at Ghent and in the neighborhood of Ostend. The latter place Is only a few miles north of Calais. France just across the Channel from Dover. England It will be recalled that when the first Zeppelin airship was a demon strated success, there was much re joicing in Berlin over what was view eci as the solving of the problem of the landing of a German armed force on English soil, in case of war. Now it is possible that the Kaiser's army has a double purpose in reaching Oetend. While clearing northern and eastern Belgium of the enemy, the Germans are preparing to threaten England with invasion by airships- They may even plan to establish a naval base at Ostend as a constant menace to the English fleet in the Channel. Airships could sail from Ostend to London in two hours and, dropping bombs, keep all Fngland in an uproar and under nervous strain. I BIG PAPER PRAISES UTAH MAN. Leslie s Weekly pas a high compli ment to Senator Reed Smoot in its last issue. The tribute, headed "De serving,'' is as follows: "Business men of this country hae recently awakened to the value of having lit and capable representative? Ion the floor of congress. It is a plea sure to knriw that they are "standing so earnestly behind Senator Smoot of I tab now a candidate fo re-election. His associate. Senator Weeks of Massachusetts, says truly that Sena t.or Smoot s constituents, generally speaking, 'can hardly appreciate his alue as a legislator He is entirely familiar with the rules of the senate, attends the sessions with perhaps more regularity than any o'ber mem ber and has an unusual familiarity with all kinds of legislation ' We know of no stronger defender of the protective tariff with all its benefits to the farmers, the working men, and business men than Senator Smoot. Few members of the senate have had a wider and deeper grasp I of economic questions than he. and none has been more attentive to his senatorial duties or exhibited a fair er disposition to treat all questions not so much from the standpoint of partisanship as from that of the com mon welfare of all the people "Utah has never- been represented in the senate by an abler, more con tentions or more industrious man than Reed Smoot. His fellow mem bers all bear testimony to this fact. Hit record proved it. He knows his fctale and it will return him to his seat by a decisive majority." One of the best assets of Utah Is Senator Reed Smoot, who has received more favorable notice than any other senator ever from the west, and as a consequence, this state ii in great part the beneficiary.

Farmers In Ogden Valley have had a most successful ear growing peas This is the first season in which peas have been raised on a large scale and thc results point the wa to the build ing up a great industry in that part of Weber counts. There is talk Of two large canning factories being built If the Ogden Rapid Transit company extends its line from Idlewlld to Huntsville. and if that is done. Ogdm Valley will witness a growth in prosperity and population. Laud owners have made a profit of from $60 to $113 an acre on the peas handled by the two viners which were operated during the season. well posted farmer said the average profit on the 253 acres in cultivation neai Eden Liberty and HuntSVllIe was a little over $61 an acre, after deducting $16 for seed and planiing by the companies buying the crop One grower made $113 an acre. Land on which these profits are being made is selling at $100 to $150 an acre. A profit of $50 an acre would repre sent 8 per cent on $6l'5 Pea land in Ogden Yallev is a bargain at pres ent prices and the wonder is that out Biders do not invade the Valley and buy a big acreage before local peopls realize the opportunity for invest ment they are neglecting. The peas grown in that part of We ber couuty are said to be the best produced In the United States. If that is true, there will be several can neries there before many years and Huntsville. and the other towns which have been losing since 1900, will begin to regain population It has been discovered that beans can be tuccessfully raised in the val ley and wheat and alfalfu on dry farm laud are yielding large crops. These new conditions mean much for the future of that beautiful spot in the Wasatch mountains oo WHY THERE HAS NOT BEEN A NAVAL BATTLE. A reader of The Standard wants to know why, In our opinion, the Brit ish war fleet, which is overwhelm ingly strong, has not attacked the German navy. We cannot answer except to ven ture a few reasons why the British fleet would be in great danger, if it did one of two things necessary to a successful pursuit of the Kai3er's war ships In German waters. The North sea. off the coast of Ger many near Heligoland where German ships of war are supposed to be gath ered, Is strewn with contact mines, rendering navigation most hazardous.

Were the German warships ! pursued to the mouth of the Elbe and in danger, they could go through the I canal to the Baltic To roach the Germans in the Baltic. Great Britain v. ould be forced to divide its naval Btrength, and a division would place tho Kaisers dreadnoughts on almost an equality with the attackers, Risk ing a battle under those conditions I would be jeopardizing British supre j macy on the ocean, which at present la unnecessary German commerce) has been swept from the high seas I and must remain inactive while tho German fleet is bottled up either in the North sea or the Baltic sea uu PUMPKINS AND SQUASHES GROWN ON TREES. C. W Hadley has had something to do with farming all his life, and he has been a student and at times has experimented extensnely. Of late he has been growing pumpkins and squashes on trees. He sends the Standard a communication on this subject which is highly interesting, as follows Editor Standard: There are man, things that I guessed at a long time ago A few things (hat I am al most convinced of now, and one or two things that I am sure of that 1 would like to interest others to con j tinue to Investigate, as I am liable; to quit any time. A doctor, the other day, said ' Von have lived as long as you had any reason to ex pect. (I wore a red badge al the last Old folks' picnic and draw a pen sion ) Don't complain at a little in disposition now.' ' What I was going to speak about, was intensive farming and the Intel ligence of plants. I have alwavfl i had a garden and these subjects al ways have interested me. In my garden at the corner of Qulncy and Twenty-sixth street. I am continuing mj experiments Among other plants, I have pumpkins, squashes, cu cumbers and tomatoes growing on trellises, demonstrating that more fruit can be raised that way than would cover the ground occupied by the plant, several timos morn and bettor and npcu quicker, than the old way. "Upon a trellis ten feet long and ton feet high, I have over a doze.i largo siiuashes. some a foot through and weighing twenty pounds, all h- ng ing by thc stems All of these vines are by nature, as well adapted to climbing, as a grapevine. I have a squash lne in a tree with fruit twen ty feet from tho ground. "As to the intelligence of plants. I will take only space for oue illus tration In a hill of cucumbers, I uuck a bush. of. which two vines took possession and climbed to the top. I stretched a string from the top of the bush to a peach tree about ten feet away. These vines are now about eight feet along that string, hanging by their tendrils. One vine runs under the string, and of Ub own volition reaches up Its tendrils and grasps the string as it grows. The other vine runs under the first and hangs from that vine. As tho tendril grasps the string, It coils up and draws the vine close to its support "There are two seed cucumbers hanging b their stems from these vines as large as you ever see "I am certain that a squash vine knows moie about the squash busi ness than any farmer or gardener I ever met, as I never saw one that knew what the tendrils of a vine were for. The vine climbs over brush, fences or trees when possible. You may call it instinct, and I will agree with you. If you will call instinct, reason. "I simply wish to excite a curiosity I and interest along this line. My gar den gate swings both wava. (8igned) C. v. Hadley." There is enough suggested In tins letter of Mr. Hadley to keep more than one mind deeply engaged for some time to come As to his grow ing squashes, pumpkins, cucumber and tomatoes, it might be well for one of our agricultural experiment sta Hons to pursue his methods to a sci entific conclusion, as great good may come from the experiments. oo EXCURSIONS NORTH OREGON SHORT LINE August 29, September l2 and "6 Very low round trip rates to northern Omcean4i?udahh 1)0,iDt' C TicS umce, ol4 Washington Avenue .
