The bulletins issued by Professor Lowell from his Flagstaff
Arizona observatory are developing skeptics For a long time the
astronomer in Flagstaff was listened to by respectful auditors but
he has said so many astonishing things about Mars which is his
specialty that other astronomers have commenced to snicker and not
a few editors are loudly laughing at the improbable discoveries
announced by Professor Lowell The
San Francisco Chronicle re
viewing tho astronomical wonders says
It was in June 1907 that Professor Lowell described certain
vegetation at the base of the receding snow cap of the Martian
South pole Nobody else saw it and some harsh astronomical spirits
seemed doubtful that the vegetation would be green enough against
tho snow bank to show at 35000000
up of miles Still that was amore
more matter of detail and Eastern prejudice was at the bottom of it
Along in March 1008 Professor Lowell hit up his spyglass again
and found Mars shrouded with water vapor No one else could dis
cover any even through bigger telescopes and one jaundiced
scientist in his disappointment said that with so small a glass as
Lowells nothing of the kind could be seen if it were there Then
i there was that conceded temperature of Mars of twenty below zero
1 to consider How about showers and full canals forsooth But
there was no fcazing Lowell He had Mars down pat and along
in May he saw rifts in the South Polar cap big enough for a musk
ox to fall into Everybody in the astronomical line then clapped a
telescope to his eye but there wasnt a sled track let alone a rift
visible Lowell had a scoop at least so they said but it was a case I
of sheer sectional jealousy r
< < On September 24 1909 news came from Lowell that the
Antarctic canals were discovered We were all proud to take the
Arisona discoverers word for it Along in November of the same
year the Professor sent out a Martian weather bulletin announcing
1 the first Antarctic snow storm There had been a few light flurries
r the day before and the inhabitants wore apparently getting in their
coal in anticipation of a hard winter The day of the announcement
the blizzard struck and the inference was that the roads were all
driftedNest tt I
Next wo knew a dust storm had swept Mars and when it blew
away thorn were a lot more canals in sight and open for the spring 1
trade Not a word from the other astronomers They had been
caught napping again and were ashamed of themselves And yes
terday they got another solar plexus blow While they were out
after supper watching the comet the vigilant inside man at Flagstaff
with his eye on Mars saw one of his new canals in the very act I
of irrigating crops There was a sudden strip of produce 1000 miles
long and twenty miles mide right in sight It was impossible to say
whether the yield was of sugar beets or lettuce but of course Pro
fessor Lowell cant be expected to act as if he were the secretary of
agriculture He is only a plain astronomer with limited knowledge
of vegetables
The facts are that Professor Lowell presuming on the credulity
of the and to the inability of
public trusting any one to success
fully contradict him has been faking He has been drawing on
his imagination and making discoveries to meet his aspirations
Like Tesla in the electrical world Professor Lowell in the field
of star gazing is to be accepted with caution
The American people are possessed of a sweet tooth They con
sume nearly onefourth of the sugar produced in the world and the
taste for sweets is steadily increasing Twenty years ago the aver
age American had his craving appeased by 50 pounds of sugar today
he must be fed 82 pounds which in an average family means an an
nual consumption of a quarter of a ton of sugar
Every nation has some peculiarity in eating and drinkig The
Russians are the tea drinkers the French enjoy their wines the
Germans indulge in light beer and the English must have their
black tea but Americans enjoy that strongest of all table drinks
coffee and they consume more coffee than all the world outside
but their coffee must be sweet and making it sweet is one great
cause of the extraordinary sugar consumption
The year 1888twentytwo years pastsaw only 571200 pounds
of beet sugar prodced in this country The industry has since grown
to large proportions the production totaling one billion pounds and
still that is only oneseventh of the entire consumption of sugar in
this country
I The island of Cuba not as large as the state of Utah supplies
three times more cane than there is beet sugar produced in the entire
Evidently there is room for the expansion of the beet industry in
the United States and this will be increased if the Americans go on
demanding more sugar
Shall Ogden have a sane Fourth of July This seems an early
date to speak of preparing for the Fourth yet it is none too soon
to start an agitation against the practice of celebrating Independence
Day by a noisy dangerous use of fireworks and firecrackers
We note that Chicago has organized a league to eliminate ex
tplosives from the days festivities and instead of an uproarious
Fourth that city is to have a parade made up of all nationalities rep
resented in Chicagos heterogeneous population the people of each
race to have a typical representation
That is original and should prove highly entertaining and sat
isfying Ogden cannot imitate Chicago but a parade equally as
pleasing might be made up of the school children of the city each
school presenting in tableau or float the most stirring scenes of Am
erican history either entirely Revolutionary or from Pilgrims Rock
I to the present Every child in the city should take a part includ
ing wee tots in cars of state When the parade ends the children
should be given refreshments including of course ice cream and
The fourth of July has become childrens day Young America
has claimed the right on that one day of the year to freedom equal
tothat of the eagle in its eyrie and he has enjoyed the privilege
so long as to regard any restrictions with some show of petulance
and therefore it is necessary to gently direct him away from his
bent of mind until he is made to see that a sane Fourth is equally aS
enjoyable as the one on which he has been in the habit of blowing
off a finger or burning the skin from a big fraction of his body
One of the most delightful parades ever given in Ogden was that

of the school children on Arbor Day four years ago when the
schools turned out about 5000 marchers
A parade in the middle of a day in July involves a hardship
and it might be the better policy to have the children march in the
evening at a time when they would be arranging for self destruc
tion with bombs and skyrockets if free to act and not diverted from
their pyrotechnics
Ogden should have a league similar to the one organized in
Chicago and if our suggestion does not meet with approval then
the league should propose some more feasible plan for a great cele
bration of the Fourth free from the murderous explosives which
in the past have claimed so many young lives

Why are your feet in pain
Fill not Wo wait your cunning
Over tho gloomnecked plain
Fill ua brimming beaker
Now to your healthy graft
Sending our heartshorn leaping
