Utah Power & Light Company « < EFFICIENT PUBLIC SERVICE The Brown Mountain Light Washington, D. C.—"Tired pro fessors and buisness men who sought surcease from their sorrows in the mountainous regions of western North Carolina have during the past few summers given up some of their much-needed hours of sleep to chase what most of them believed to be nothing more than a phantom, or the witch fires of some maker of moun tain dew, but the Brown Mountain Light is now coming into its own as an accredited electrical phenome non," says a bulletin of the National Geographic Society, issued from Its Washington, D. C., headquarters. "Bron Mountain lies seventeen miles from Blowing Rock in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the western part of the State, and, though plainly vis ible from the resort. Is ln an unin habitated and Bparsely wooded secton Suddenly and without warning a light sometimes blazes out on the crest of the mountain, slowly moves down its side and then fades out; sometimes it seems to rise from the top of the mountain and hang sus pended ln the air where it fades.

Those who have studied it in ail its guise say that it often is not unlike the star from a bursting sky-rocket, though much brighter, and that it is some times red and sometimes yellow, due probably to the condition of the at mosphere, - "Scientists were at first prone to cavil at the stories which came out of the mountains with the tourists, thinking perhaps that locomotive headlights or wly mountaineers were playing tricks on active " Imagina tions, but today Dr. W. J. Humph reys, physicist of the United States Weather Bureau, and other meteoro logists of note believe that there oc curs around the mountain's crest a brush discharge of lightning, simi lar to the famous Andes lightning, or the St. Elmo's fire, whch gave rise among the ancient Greeks to the myth of ^Castor and Pollux. That glow which accompanies the slow dis charge of electricity to the earth from the atmosphere, ln southern cli mates, during thunderstorms, seen on the tops of masts, spires, or other pointed objects was named St. Elmo's fire by sailors after one of their pa tron saints, because they felt that when the sign appeared they had, nothing further to fear from the storm. COMPARED TO ANDES DISPLAY "Perhaps the most remarkable fea ture of the electrical discharge which takes place either from the earth to the clouds or from the clouds to the earth around Brown Mountain is that it is silent. The same thing is true of the electrical displays In the Andes which have long been known to sci entists and travelers in the South American continent as the Andes lightning. It appears as a silent but very luminous discharge of elec tricity along the crest of the Cordil lera Real ln Chile, in a region where thunderstorms are practically un known. "It's visibility Is sometimes very marked, having been noted by the former Director of the Metorologlcal and Geophysical Institute of Chile, while he was out at sea, more than 300 miles from the head cordillera. The actual discharge, ln which the mountain acts as a lightning rod be tween the clouds and the earth, re sembles a glimmer, but sometimes the flashes which take place at the point of origin are strong and power ful, then gradually diminish in in tensity and finally disappear into the night. The light flashes over the mountain from the late spring to fall and the displays- grow less brilliant as one goes farther Bouth. "The same phenomenon has also been noted In the Swiss Alps. One observer, after a long period of hot and dry weather, reported that he had seen a succession of seml-clr cular flashes which shot up from a mountain in the Bernese Oberland, occasionally lightning the Jungfrau group. Such displays are notable for their likness in appearance to the aurora, except that they do not reach such heights.'' a Look at Thing« Calmly. Much depends on personal attltnde.

A typical Illustration of German rule in Poland before freedom came to Its people Is given by Mrs. Cecil Chesterton ln the New Witness. The German military authorities had is sued a command to the people of War saw that they should furnish a list of their metals and plate, from door handles to samovars. A German officer billeted In a Polish household, says Mrs. Chesterton, found himself lonely on Christmas day. The family was keeping the fes tival, and the officer sent a note ask ing if he might Join the party. The hostess was compelled to assent, and Herr Lieut Grunsbacb partook of a lavish supper. It happened that his hostess had kept back a silver samo var, which, usually secreted under the bed, on Christmas day shone forth ln all its glory. Some one suggested that It would be wiser to remove the samovar be fore the Herr Lieutenant entered, but the hostess Insisted that he was there as a guest and not as an enemy, and that even a Prussian would respect the bread and salt The evening fol lowing the party an unpleasant-look ing man came to the house accom panied by two German soldiers. He had called to collect the samovar that the Herr Lieutenant had reported. Not only did he remove the samovar, but he assessed a fine because the law had been disobeyed. Shortly afterward the officer asked his hostess why she avoided him. What had he done to offend her? She could no longer restrain her Indigna tion and told him what she thought of him—to his profound astonishment How could she blame him for doing what was obviously his duty! Hos pitality entailed no obligation to for get one's fatherland. Germany had need of samovars. What mattered elseî —Youth's Companion. "The Gulf of California, of which we Americans hear so seldom, ranks among the largest ln the world. If it were stretched out Inland over our country from New York harbor, it would swallow up. a broad stretch of country from 30 to 160 miles wide back as far aB Detroit and Its busy factories. It was shown on the ear ly maps of North America as the Sea of Cortez, since this bold corsair explored it first. Its depth varies from 600 to 6,000 feet, Its coast line on both sides Is Irregular, and in It are many Islands, Angel de la Guar da and Tiburon being the largest. The latter Island points its rocky crest 7,000 feet above the level of the sea, and Is inhabited by a fierce and warlike tribe of Indians, the Serls, who, It Is claimed, have can nibalistic instincts.

"The whole of this upper north western part of the Mexican State of Sonora in Included in what Is lo cally known as Papaguerla, the home of the Papago-Indians—a broad region which syopes down from the mountains in southeastern Arizona toward the Quit of California and northward to the Gila River, and is much the same that the tribe held at the time of the coming of the Span ladrs. These natives are strong and healthy, possess force of character, and arc Industrious and of an even temper. They have almost « com pletelly adopted the white man's gar ments and are fast acquiring his cus toms and modes of living. WHERE NATIVES GET SALT "On the southern edge of the Bay of St. George is the Salina de St. George, a salt deposit, usually meas uring about 326 feet in diameter but sometimes entirely covered by the sea, which is a favorite with the Pa pagoes. When they need salt the customary method is 'to ride to the foothills of Chujubab, perform a cer tain ceremonial rite peculiar to the gathering of salt, and then walk the fifty miles to the salina in about a day and a half. There is no water to be had between the two places. The Plncate Salt Deposit, about fif ty miles farther north on the Gulf Shore, however, has always furnshed the major portion of the salt supply of the Papagoe Indians. "The. building of the harbor and the establishing of lines of trade thru the Gulf of California will probably furnish anglers with a few more rare filth stories. | There is a wealth of fish and a multitudinous variety of fish ln waters. Today these fish which would furnish the ma terial for running large canneries are feeding Innumerable pelicans, and other fish-eating birds. The natives and the Mexicans are without skill and the facilites for catching them. They, usually 'still-fiBh' at great depths tor the Jewish and tortuava and kill ther catches by pounding them on the head when they get them near the surface.
