THE SONGS OUR PARENTS SANG.
"When You and I Were Young Maggie.'' 1 wandered today to the hills Maggie To wateh the scenes below, The creek and the civaki. g old mill, Maggie As we used to long ago. The green groves have gone from the hills Maggie Where first the daisies sprung, The creaking old mill is still Maggie Since you and I were young. CHORUS And now we are aged < and gray Maggie, And the trials of life nearly done; Let us sinig of the days that have •gone Maggie Since you and I were young. A city so silent and lone Maggie, Where the young and the gey and the best In polished white mansions of stone •Maigtgic, Have each found a place of rest. Is built where the birds used) to play Maggie, Aijd join in the songs that were sung For we sang as gay as they Maggie When you and 1 were young. CHORUS. They scry I am feeble and old Maggie My steps loss sprightly than then. My face is a well written page Mag gie, But time alone was the pen. They say we are aged and gray Mag gie As sprays iby the White breakers flung; But to me you are as fair as you were Maggie, When you a..d I were young. CHORUS. PASSING OF TOM JOHNSON. Tom I.. Johnson is dead. The man who was twice congressman a>:;d four times mayor met his final defeat at the hands of the rider of the pale horse. Perhaps no man in the past quarter of the century has so impress ed his personality and his views upon the people of a great city as did this man who for many years dominated the city of Cleveland and whose re form and progressive ideas as to legislation found their way in to stat6 and natio.al platforms. He was a Bin of mny friends and even his en emies could not question his sincer ity. He was a born fighter. At one time lie was a rich man and might have teen one of the greatest men of wealth to the nation. But he chose to cast his lot with the common peo ple and the down-trodden and the masses against the men of wealth,the moneyed Interests of his city and state and the classes. He ifought hard he fought valiantly and he fought straight. Ilis wealth dwindled and his estates went to pay the bills of his creditors ai. d when lie died he had little more than those for whom he led in battle, lie was a friend of the common people and not am enemy of those who had wealth and used, it ho .estiy. He is known as the father of the three cent street car fare. Volunta rily installing the system on his own lines he sought to make it the rule for all the large cities, it was in this fight that he partially lost, but the fact that in his own city the three cent fare has come to stay is a vic tory. It was in his last great cam paign which he fouglht a,ltd lost that his health and spirit were .broken) and then came the physical collapse which ended in his death. In his last illness the same fighting spirit which was so prominent in his days of strength and he held on to life with a tenacity that was a marvel even to It's physicians. He was a fighter to Ihc last amd a good loser. In this age of political turmoil and etrife the country can illy afford to lose a main of this character. We may differ from him in many of his polit ical views but we cat. never doubt his sincerity. The state and nation mourns today with the Forest City and from every quarter of the globe will come tributes to lay on his bier. —Findlay, Ohio, Courier. ; I I AN INJUNCTION SERVED. A writ of injunction, restraining the management of the Pocatello baseball team from further use of the east side baseball park, was served this afternoon by Sheriff W. W. Coop er on O. L Cleveland, owner of the grounds; R. O. Graham, W. E Trapp, A W. Service and Rbbcrt Glenn, les sees, and Manager A1 Bresee of the Pocatello .nine. Application for an in junction was made this forenoon to District Judge Alfred Budge by At torney W. H. Witty, acting in behalf of Rev. H. A. Mullen of the Presby terian church, and other residents and property owners on the east side of town in the immediate vicinity of the baseball park. The complaint de clares the use of the Cleveland prop erty to be a nuisance, and recites nu merous instances in support of the contention. There is no feeling, ac cordi g to Attorney Witty, aiainsi baseball or even Sunday Ij— schalt on the part of the petitioners, but they strenuously object to a continued use of the present .grounds. Many of the petitioners have signified a. willing ness to contribute liberally toward a fund for establishing a baseball park i>i. some other part of the city, but they refuse to p rniit furth r use of the present park, which is located in the heart of one of the most thick ly settled residence districts in that part of town. As a result of the issuance of the restraining orde, which is made re tunable U. I twenty days, the Pocat.Uc McCammon game, scheduled for to morrow, lias bi en abandoned. TESTED RECIPES.

The other day in Spokane several men preminu. t in Idaho, including former District Judge Standrod. pres idle nt of the First National bank of Pocatello, were indicted by the féd érai grand jury on charges of havii g used the mails for fraudulent pur poses in connection with the opera tion of a hardwood company in which they held stock. It seems U a few years ago these men were in ..ideed to take stock ill a company that proposed to grow eucalyptus trees in California. The .federal gov dTiniKnt,through the agricultural de partnie t, had exploited the eucalyp tus industry thoroughly. Because cl the rapid' growth of the trees and be cause soil suitable to their develop ment had been discovered', the gov in, ment did not hesitate to recoi. men-J L as a' profitable business. The reports of government experts were used to sell stock in various eucalyp tus companies, in one of which the Idaho men became interested. It seems, though, that the business did not turn out as profitably as had been expected, whereupon the gov ernment indicated that its bulletins on the subject had been taken "too literally." It seems that certain par ties to whom the promoter of the company (not the Idaho sharehold ers, excepting as their names ap peared as officers) had soldi stock be anie dissatisfied and complained to tlie government that they had b en de.rauded by representations of the •oni'p..ny contained in its literature. So it came about that the Idaho men were indicted in Spokane. The lea . they can expect is tlie annoyance and expense of a trial away from home, l'lie case seems typical of gov. ru ncntal procedure, enmeshed as it is with its horde of sleuths and special prosecutors ai d other adornment the federal payroll. Perhaps tlie Ida lo men are at fault; but they ma> not be more so than the erring gov rnmo ,, which alto used tile mails persistently, without postage, too, foir the purpose of encouraging capital to invest in the culture of eucalyptus trees in this country. Why does not Uncle Sam have h ins. If indicted? —Statesman;. FORT HALL ROADS. The positive announcement yester day by tlie superintendent in charge of the Fort Hall irrigation project that water would be delivered to all the lands mot later than July 1 was good news to tlie people of Pocatello. It means the consummation of one of the most important irrigation projects in the state—not one of the largest in point of acreage or cost, but one of the most perfect, and most ideally located with reference to a ready market for all kinds of produce. The completion of the Fort Hall project brings to mind the necessity of providing at the earliest possible date good roads to and from the city to the fertile acres which will this year for the first time blossom as the rose. Gradually the old roaA, Oil trails across part of the ceded lands which were formerly embraced in the Fort Hall Indian reservation, are 'be ing straightened out and the high ways laid along section lines. While this arrangement lengthens the dis tance between given points, it light ens the burden 011 the homesteaders and leaves the tract in symmetrical shape. The attention of the board of coun ty commissioners might with profit be directed to the fact that the trans formation on the tract has been and will continue to be marvelous. This wonderful growth demands consider ation from the commissioners in the way of good roads, which will mean still more rapid development. It would be a profitable scheme for the Fort Hall homesteaders to arrange to drive the board of commissioners ovei the tract, that they may be given a chance to judge of the bigness of the project aind of the necessity of taking action along the good road line.Chair man Bistline is personally familiar with the tract and will use his best efforts to secure liberal appropria tions for that part of his district this year, but the other members while willing and anxious no doubt to as sist in upbuilding every part of the country, are personally wot familiar with conditions. However, even without a more intimate knowledge, it is believed tlie hoard will take cog nizance of tlie importance of assist ing in every possible wiay in the quick development of tlie tract, and nothing is more important as a con tributing factor thiau good roads.— Pocatello Tribune.
