Two or three yeare ago the contin ued draught made many people appre hensive! that the streams of this state would be permanently reduced in vol ume and that our great lake would ev entually disappear. We have often called attention to the fact that the wet and dry seasons In this country alternate; that Is there would fee a period a few years' drought and then there would be a period of plenty of rain for a series of years; that some years ago all the lakes in Nevada! ran dry; that when the pio neers bame here they walked dry shod of er to Antelope Island. Yesterday we found a friend who has be<fn making a study of the ques tion, ai^d he has reduced the matter to almost a science. Curiously he be gan hii studies on the circles of the growth on the sections of the big trees oft exhibition In New York and In the largest cities on this coast. He figured out that these circles of droughlj came once in about so many years a!nd last three or four years or even flVe years. They alternate be tween (fifteen years and sixty years, and he predicts that there will be an abundance of rain in this section for the next six years. Is it hot curious how nature leaves her records, and how when a season of dry years comes she records them on her trees? So, by noting the ears on the growth of the great trees we know Whether a certain year was wet or dry. Some of the' big trees of California have 16(^0 of these circles, showing that they were big trees more than 1000 years old when Columbus discovered America!, but they all that time have been t keeping a record of the rain falls. Men whoAe fathers when these trees began to grow were barbarians, can now cut these trees down, and by the circles cannot only tell their age, but can tell when the dry and wet seasons came In this country in the the long ago and In the later years.— Salt Lalfe Telegram. DISPOSAL OF REFUSE. The d|lsposition of the refuse and sewage of a growing city Is a problem that hiiis called forth considerable^ study anjd experimenting upon the part of city officials the world over. The plfin pursued by the city of Not tingham. England, is undoubtedly one of the b^-st from an economical stand point and from a sanitary standpoint seems to fill all Requirements. The ashes, kitchen scraps, and house refuse generally In Nottingham are placed l^i metal barrels or larger re ceptlcles at the rear of the premises and removed weekly by city employes. The total weight of this refuse Is about 1,600 tons per week. It is burrt^ «d In twb city refuse dectructors. This requires no other fuel except a trifle for starting the fires on Mon days and enough steam Is produced by the destructors to supply electricity for a thlird of the needs of the tram way system. Some of the electricity is also used for lighting purposes. Only tin cans and the like are separated from the refuse and sold. All the rest is destroyed. The city owns two destructors cost ing respectively, $38,932 and $102,196. The more expensive one Is equipped with electrical machinery costing $12,1 166, connected with the tramway lines The cost of wages and other expenses of the destructors averages about 35 cents a ton of refuse burned. The average quantity of electric units produced Is 44.23 per ton. Though the system of converting refuse Into electricty works admir ably here and Is a saving to the tax payers, it is stated that only forty other tow|ns in the country are using anything similar. Besides electricity the Nottingham corporation produces from the refu more street paving stones than It can use. A plant connected with the main destructoR mixes the clinkers with ce ment and places the composition under hydraulic pressure. The product Is Bald to bo even harder that stone and can be used for building purposes as ■well as sfreet paving. The operation, being new, is still ■ somewhat experimental, but the en glneer In charge says the product will wear longer than the paving stones commonly used, while costing the city les than half as much. Another destructor larger tha either of the twp now operating. Is contem plated by the city authorities. The sewage of Nottingham is spread upon a form of 1,894 acre? about five mlleB from the city. The land having gravely subsoil is well suited to fil tration. About 10,000,000 gallons of sewage are run upon the farm every twent-four hours. The total annual expense of the farm Is about $80,00. The total Income from the farm ! amounts to substantially the same. THINK IT OVER.

By United States Senator GEORGE C. PERKINS of California. C ] HE «cienee of war supervenes only upon a foundation, of ALL OTHER SCIENCES. No nation in all history has ever manifested' a greater capacity for perfect unity of purpose than the Japanese. No nation has manifested a greater aptitude to seize upon AND APPROPRIATE all that the ages have disclosed to the other nations in art, is science and in government. The Japanese race, wherever distributed, however numerically strong in any foreign country, will remain a CONSOLIDATED , ... . .. T ,, _ UNIT m support of the aspirations of the Japanese race, and however distant their residence from the throne of the mikado will still consti tute an element of strength in the unity of the empire. NATURALIZATION IN ANY COUNTRY IN WHICH THEY MI GRATE WILL NOT ELIMINATE THIS RACIAL INSTINCT. Conflicts between nations are the result of antagonisms which lie at the very foundation of their purposes, their aspirations, their growth AND EXPANSION. The presence of Russia as a prime factor in the commerce of the Pacific coast was inimical to the aspira tions of the Japanese empire in the same line. The occupation of -\f nn „ h nT ^ a the fortification of Port Arthur were the IMMEDI ATE EXCUSES, but not the real causes of the war. The real cause 0 f the war was the inherent antagonism of interest and purpose which d 0THER SOLUTION than the arbitrament of the ! sword. NUR We have acquired territory in the Pacific ocean. We have laid the * J ! foundation for commercial primacy on that great sea. We have a position at the very doors of the orient by the possession of the Philip pines and a base of naval operations in the middle of the ocean by the incorporation of the Sandwich Islands. We have a shore line undeT the jurisdiction of the American flag which, following its indentations the Pacific ocean borders of the Pacific states and the territory of Alaska, comprises 25,000 miles. The countries under the jurisdiction of our flag lying behind this line possess resources equal to the ULTT kJATE SUPPORT OF EMPIRES of wealth and population. We have laid the foundation for commercial supremacy on the Pacific coast, and at some point m the future course of national destiny the pathway of national progress on the part of Japan and the United ! a«- «O » poù* Of INEVITABLE CONFLICT. j It is useless to speculate as to what the occasion or excuse for this j con flj c t may be. The «mall cloud of war which is now hanging on the j horizon of the two nations appears to relate to the dissatisfaction of 1 Japan with the domestic policy of the state of California relating to j . educational interests. The administration of the educational affairs j . . . , , . » of California has not been fortunate in meeting with the approval of the empire of Japan, but this educational policy is not the reason for disturbing the amicable relations between the two nations. THE FUNDAMENTAL CAUSE LIES AT THE VERY FOUNDATION OF THE NATIONAL CHARACTER OF THE NATIONS TO THE CON TROVERSY. The Morality of Americans. By LUDWIG FULDA. Eminent German Dramatist and Poet. MERIC A is a far more moral country than Germany. Its educational system is equal to the best of Europe. In wom en's colleges the United States excels, and THE AMERI CAN WOMAN LEADS THE WORLD. German par ents might well send their daughters to America for higher education, and the spirit they would bring back would do Germany much good. The MORAL LIFE of the American people is on a higher plane than that of Germany. Without a question the life of the young peo pie is purer, the demeanor of men among themselves less frivolous. One sees less of vice on the streets of the large cities than on those of our own. •t it at The belief that the American woman lordé;St over the sterner sex, an idea prevalent in Europe, is unfounded. .„Conditions there provide for meeting more on an equal footing rather than have the one lord it over the other. As a result of the mingling of the sexes from early childhood American marriages, on the whole, are happier, for the man and the woman HAVE LEARNED TO UNDERSTAND THEMSELVES and better know the shortcomings of the other and the better side as well. There a young couple has years in which to pass judgment on the question of marriage, while in Germany the daughter is virtually THROWN UPON THE MARKET by her parents before she has learned anything about the opposite sex. ONE RESULT OF THE AMERICAN CONDITION IS THAT CE LIBACY IS NOT LOOKED UPON BY AMERICAN WOMEN AS SOME THING TO BE DREADED. SINGLE WOMEN ARE LOOKED UPON WITH EQUAL RESPECT AND HONOR TO THOSE SHOWN THEIR MARRIED SI8TERS. Let There Be More'Light On Our Big Corporations. By Congressman FRANK O. LOWDEM of Illinois. C r HE earth is filled with giant forms ctf life long dead, which r> ceased tq be because in the evolution ai the universe they no longer performed functions OF USE TO THE WORLD. The time has come when corporations must decide whether they will jeopardize the security of property for all the future in order to gain a TEMPORARY ADVANTAGE today. On the one hand is pri vate property UNDER THE LAW, and on the other a socialistic state, from which Americans must shrink. Let there be light.
