the prices ho gets for his products
that ho deserves them and if you are
willing to pay sixty cents for corn he
would be a chump to sell It for thirty
cents
centsThere
There mustbe some blamq some
where for the high cost of living But
tho farmer has never set tho price on
one of his products He brings his
steers to market and takes what is

must take his cattle home again and
that makes bankruptcy

PREPARIN6 I
FOR THE
FLOODS
It Is reported by residents along
the banks of the Ogden river that tho
liver Is two feet higher than It was
yesterday The rivers are not yet
alarmingly high It IB thought how
ever thatdf the temperature remains
as high ng It Is today that it will not
bo man days before tho waters will
begin to show threatening proportions
In anticipation of high water City
Engineer Bostaph anrfthe city ofOclals
visited the rivers today to mako ob
servations regarding the condition of
tho two streams and prepare to make
timely suggestions as to what should
be done to prevent the damage of
properly by tho overflOw of the wa
ters
It IB more than likely that somo
recommendations will be made to tho
city council this evening regarding the
matter It appears that the property
along the banks of the Ogdon river
utar the intersection of Lincoln aye
Due and the river will be In danger
of Inundation which may be prevented
by diking
Some precautionary measures nro I
to bo taken along the Weber river
to prevent damage to the cower pipe
system of the city at the outlet of limo
system at Went Twcntyflrst street
The ely officials are of the opinion
that It will be well to Invoke the ruio
an ounce preventive Is better
an a pound of cure
The 1IIIlIn temperature of today boa

t
has had the effect of starting the ice

I DOUBLING
I THE CROPS
Seed Selection is Doing
Much for the
Farmers
Chicago Jan 31A doubling of the
present production of farm staples hi
I in sight according to Prof C B Buf
lurn oC Worland Wyo who Is a pio
I neer In the science of seed breeding
We have already practically
doubled the yield of corn by selection
I brooding said Professor Buffum yes
terday but we need not stop with
corn as we can deal with all other
I crops In a similar way The reason
I that this has not been done earlier is
that plant breeding has been utilized
heretofore mainly for the production
of curiosities Men who brought out
anything new were wizards Few
saw any practical value In what was
being done Much was accomplished
in an esthetic way with reference lo
improvements of flowers but she great
farm crops wore neglected
As Mark Twain said in Puddln
head Wilson training Is everything
The peach was once a bitter almond
and cauliflower la nothing but a cab
lingo with a eollogoeducatlon Plant
breeding supplies this college educa
tion to the pleblnnR of the vegetable
world and theroforo by increasing
crop yields promises more than any
thing else with referenco to 0 CTOW l
ot tho worlds permanent wealth
