Instructive speeches were made bj Apostles Lyman uud Lund, concerning tlie duties of the Latter-day Saints win. held the priesthood, practieularly tliosi who were called to be officers in a stake and ward capacity, but the ohiei lesson of their talk was the strict en forcement of the word of wisdom, Apostle Lyman going so far as to say that no person would be selected officer in tlie Granite stake who would not keep the word of wisdom strictly which forbids the use of ten, coffee, to bacco and liquors of all kinds, further said that if any persons select ed for any office had not lived up to these requirements they would have to pledge themselves to do so, and ii they did not then live up to this re quirement, they would be removed. Apostle Lyman then presented tile name of Frank Y. Taylor for president of the Granite stake, which was sus tained without a dissenting voice. A very unusual method was followed to secure a list of names from which tlie other officers would be selected. Each person present was given a slip of pa per and asked to write live or six names thereon of those whom they would like to see made officers of the stake, butte name no office for any one, and be sure to write only men they knew to be up right and honest, und who ice-it tlie word of wisdom. On tlie back of this slip of paper eacli was to write the name of tlie ward lie lived in, but not sign his own name. A committee oi five was appointed as tellers. Riéliard It. Lyman, Francis M. Lyman, Jr., Thomas Ahlston, Joseph W. Musse« and George M. Cannon. At 11:20 the meeting adjourned to give the apostles time to select from the lists prepared by tlie tellers the various officers to be named. At 1 p. m. the meeting reeontinued and the names selected were presented for the approval of the meeting, all re ceiving unanimous support.

While at the Uni versity he took a course in surveying which profession he followed for about two years after leaving school. In 188! be was appointed assistant architect on the Manti Temple, which positi he held until the temple was finished. Since leaving school he b been more or less interested in mining aud was superintendent of the Bullion Beck in 1893. For several years he bat been engaged in the real estate and brokerage business, been quite an active religionist, parti cuiiarly in Sunday school and Mutual Improvement association work, and when selected for president of this stake he was a member of the general M.

It Is not in the coldest weather that the fowls are the most likely to take cold. The cold causeB the pores to ing of and and as close up and the feathers to lie so close that the bird Is protected against cold. But In the fairly warm weather in fall, winter and spring, when drafts are allowed to pass over the fowls, colds ure most likely to occur. * Very frequently men that have a little capital, but no experience In poultry raising, write to ask if It will pay them to go into the poultry busi ness—If there Is any money In poul try. The fact that they ask the ques tion shows that they know so little about the business that it will not be safe for them to go into the business till they have learned more about It. When a man knows enough about rais ing poultry and producing eggs to make it safe for him to Invest a good sum in It, it will not be necessary for him to write to any paper asking ad vice. The man that expects to ranke money out of poultry without a great deal ot work will be disappointed. It is an impossible feat. The Great Cre ator of the universe decreed that all ot ) should labor; and that man succeeds wuo does labor. When we read poultrvmen making Johnny cake for tlieir poultry we are inclined to re gard the affair as rather amusing, hut it Is not so amusing when that poul try man in December begins to sell us eggs at a high price just because our hens do not seem to get down to lay ing. Intelligent labor will give us good results iu the poultry yard, in cluding eggs in the fall aud winter tuouths. a The balanced ration is as necessary In the poultry yard as In the cow yard, and a man that feeds an unbalanced asting a large part of his ration is food in either case. If a food contains parts 40 per cent more fat-forming than nitrogenous pans then there is bound to be a large waste. If the fat is laid on, It Is wasted, and worse than wasted, for egg production; and if it is not laid on it is as certainly wasted. Most of our people feed an excess of fat formers rather than an excess of protein, the latter being the more costly food. The man that got eggs all through the fall was the man that fed a balanced ration, and he will be the man that will get a good yield of eggs through the coming months. * Reports from the chief poultry mar kets of the country show that the holi day trade in poultry was not what it was expected to be, and the kind of poultry that seemed to suffer the most from over supply was turkeys. There were too few primes aud too many of the cold storage kind. The same was said to be the case with hens. A large part o£ the receipts had to be sold to packers at a great loss. The moral of this is that it does not pay to raise poultry unless it is to be got to mar ket in good condition. In the Chicago market prime turkeys sold at 12 cents, but some of the poor stock had to go at 5 and 6 cents. Imagine the disap pointment of the shippers of such birds when they get their returns! However, it is to a considerable ex tent their own blame, but that will not make the loss any easier to bear. The lesson to be got from this ex perience is that we must pay more attention to the condition of the poul try when it comes into market. » A speaker at a Nebraska farmers' Institute said: "Geographically speak ing, the poultry Industry is circum scribed and bounded as follows: on the north, by roup and blood sucking ver min; on the south, by weasels, cats, badgers, and hawks; on the east, by dishonest and unreliable poultry breed ers; and on the west, by rainbow-chas ing Incubator advertisements and ex aggerated, overdrawn statements in poultry Journals." We know nothing of the man that made the above remarks, but we would not suppose him to be a practical poultryman. It Is only the novice in poultry science that cares very much about most of the above pests. The experienced poultryman has learned to avoid them. Roup and blood sucking vermin are things that once got rid of, need uover be re-lm ported. Good wire netting screens keep out the weasels, catR, badgers and hawks. Experience tell us how to deal with dishonest breeders and what weight to put on "rainbow-chasing" advertisements. feet of making the poor creatures tin comfortable, especially in winter time. but the maternal instinct rises stipe- | rior to cold or even ice water.

The surest way to ruin a pull's breeding qualities Is to consider him a prisoner condemned to durance vile iu a solitary cell where he Is fed all the corn be will oat. I^ck of exercise and corn explain the fact that many a bull fails to get cul"es and tlie? wise stockbreeder will substitute oatsj mid dlings, bran, oil meal and roots for that great hog fattening food, corn. Rather than keep the bull pcnijed up in a stall all of the time it would be much better to harness him to a ma nure cart or other vehicle and keep him thus iu good muscular trim. On the other hand bulls are also frequent 'y spoiled by turning out to pasture with the cows where they often overdo themselves and soon prove Impotent. The bull should only be treated in this manner upon the great ranges of the west where it Is out of the question to do otherwise. Uive the bull ample exercise in a roomy box stall and pad dock attached, turn a young bull In with him for company, and feed him upon a nitrogeuous ration, bring the cows to him, and there will be little complaint of his falling to breed. The same remarks apply to the stal lion and other male animals, for, with all of them lack of exercise, too much corn or overbreeding are the common causes of Impotence. We are also ot the opinion that the reason so many cows fail to come In heat or prove with calf is the same overfeeding upou coin, and breeders will do w|ell to re member tills rather than experiment with nostrums and empirics. Nature will set such matters right if given a chance. Tlie I'lRgery. Tbe winter housing ot hi^gs is not an easy problem to deal with, says a writer In Nebraska I armer. The main difficulty is encountered ip getting enough for the animals. When a man has comparatively few hogs, he can master this part of the difficulty fairly well; but when the numbers are large and comprise all ages, pexes and breeds, the real magnitude Of the ques tion is appreciated. Our buildings are not well adapted to provide exercise, and in the winter we arc compelled to confine animals more cjlosely than we would desire. Wo havB been able to obtain very satisfactory growth, but have not yet convinced ourselves that we are producing bacon of the best quality. A piggery, abovt| all things, should he dry and warm.
