BOAT ON GREEN RIVER
IVKVV STEAMBOAT, CITY OF MOAB Will Run From Grand River Station on the D. & R. G. Railroad to Moab, Utah. Had It not been for an obM ruction tn the Grand river, encountered by the teamer City of Moab, on Us maiden trip, the little Utah city of that name would have held the greatest celebra tion in Its history by this time, Bays the Denver Republican of June 1st. However, the enthusiasm of the resi dents over the opening of the Grand, Green and Colorado rivers to naviga tion by the Green-Grand Navigation Company has not waned in the slight est, and when tne boat does reach the city, probabaly within thirty days, there will be a rousing demonstration. J. J. Lumsden, president of the Green-Grand Navigation Company, and C. A. Anderson, captain of the "City of Moab," owned by the company and op erated on the Green and Grand rivers between Green River station on the Denver & Rio Grande, and Moab, Utah, were visitors in Denver yesterday. In describing the new steamer, a most unique sort of a craft, Mr. Lumsden said: "The 'City of Moab,' built last season and launched In April, Is fifty-five feet long and nineteen feet deck beam, has two decks and cun handle from fifty to sixty tons of freight and from fifty to sixty passengers. There are ten com fortable staterooms and the passenger accommodations are first class. The boat is operated by a gasoline marine engine of sixty horse-power and is cap able of making from twelve to fifteen miles per hour. The distance from Green River station to the junction of the Green and Grand rivers, is about 140 miles, and from this junction to the first cataract in the Colorado river the distance is about five miles. From the junction of thfl Grand and Green rivers to Moab the i lstance is about ninety miles. "At the present time there Is an ob struction in the Grand river about five miles above the junction which pre vents the operation of the boat through to Moab. This obstruction, however, does not prevent the operation of the boat between Green river and the first cataract on the Colorado river, and as it Is the intention of the company to dynamite "le obstruction In the Grand, it is expected that within thirty days It will be possible to operate the boat through to Moab. The trip to the cat aracts and return can be made tn four days and this allows ample opportunity for stopping along the route, thus en abling the tourist to xaniine the Cliff Dwellers' remains and other Interest ing points. "The scenery for the entire distance Is magnificent, walls of the canons in many places rising to a perpendicular height of from 1,000 to 3,000 feet. About twenty-five mlies south of Green River station the river enters a stu pendous canon and the boat does not emerge until Moab, on the Grand, Is reached. The proprietors contemplate establishing a hotel at a point not yet determined on, in one of the canons for the accommodation of tourists and ex cursionists. It is their expectation to provide these hotel accommodations before the present season is over. "The navigation of the river is not attended with the slightest danger, as the current does not exceed three miles per hour. Every housekeeper should know that if they will buy Defiance Cold Water Starch for laundry use they will save not only time, because it never sticks to the Iron, but because each package contains 16 oz. one full pound while all other Cold Water Starches are put up in -pound pack ages, and the price is the same, 10 cents. Then again because Defiance Starch is free from all Injurious chem icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a 12-oz. package it is because he has a stock on hand which be w'ahes to dispose of before he puts in Defiance. He knows that Defiance Stirch has printed on every package in large let ters and figures "16 ozs." Demand De fiance and save much time and money and the annoyance of the iron stick Ins. Defiance never sticks. If a patient has lots uf money any doctor cun relieve him of his coin. TEA Was ever a wicked man or woman especially fond of tea, do you think ? The Lord hasn't time to help a man who is too lazy to help himself.

In line with the classic i.i-e of the oyster shippers, cited by I 'resident Hadley of Yale University It his book on Railroad Transportation, is lit case of the Aroostook potato growers brought by President Tuttle of the Boston and Maine Railroad before the Senate Committee on Interstate Com merce. Nothing could better show how a railroad works for the interest of the localities which It serves. A main dependence of the firmers of the Aroostook region Is the potato crop, aggregating annually eight to ten million bushels, which find a mar ket largely In Boston and the adjacent thickly settled regions of New Eng land. The competition of cheap water transportation from Maine to all points along the New England coast keeps railroad freight rates on these pota toes always at a very low level. Potatoes are also a considerable out put of the truck farms of Michigan, their normal market being obtained tn and through Detroit and Chicago and other communities of that region. Not many years ago favoring sun and rains brought a tremendous yield of potatoes from the Michigan fields. At normal rates and prices there would have been a slut of the custom ary markets and the potatoes would have rotted on the farms. To help the potato growers the railroads from Michigan made unprecedentedly low rates on potatoes to every reachable market, even carrying them In large quantities to a place so remote as Bos ton. The Aroostook growers had to reduce the price on their potatoes and even then could not dispose of them unless the Boston and Maine Railroad reduced its already low rate, which It did. By means of theBe low rates, making possible low prices, the potato crops of both Michigan and Maine were finally marketed. Everybody eats potatoes, and that year every body had all the potatoes he wanted. While the Michigan railroads made rates that would have been ruinous to the railroads, had they been applied to the movement of all potatoes at all times, to all places, they helped their patrons to find markets then. The Boston and Maine Railroad suffered a decrease In its revenue from potatoes, but it enabled the Aroostook farmers to market their crop and thereby to obtain money which they spent for the varied supplies which the ralroads brought to them. If the making of rates were subject to governmental adjustment such radical and prompt action could never have been taken, because it is well established that If a rate be once reduced by a railroad company it cannot be restored through the red tape of governmental proce dure. If the Michigan railroads and the Boston and Maine Railroad had been subjected to governmental limi tation they would have felt obliged to keep up their rates as do the railroads of France and England and Germany under governmental limitation and let the potatoes rot.

This Is because they have a stock on hand of other brands containing only 12 oz in a package, which they won't be able to sell first, because Defiance contains 16 oz. for the same money. Do you want 16 oz. Instead of 12 oz. for same money? Then buy Defiance Starch. Requires no cooking.

To ste a thlrteen-lnch gun loaded and fired Is a sight not to be forgot ten. The projectile Is thirteen Inches In diameter, three feet In length and weighs 1,100 pounds. The powder charge for targe,, practice Is 250 pounds. The cost of each shot Is (500. When all Is ready on the range, the signal siren sounds, there la a blind ing flash, a roar like thunder and a jarring shock; then you hear the whlnnlng screech of the shell, for all the world like a fast express round ing a sharp curve. The projectile Is visible almost from the time It leaves the gun; you see It rip through the tar get and strike the water beyond, throwing up a column of liquid many feet high. The shell skips, much like the flat stone "skipper' of our boyhood, and again a column of water shoots up two miles or more farther out, to be repeated time and again. The shell In Its flight can be watched without the aid of a glass for eight miles or more in clear weather. C08T OF LIVING IN 1797. Market Report In First Issue of New York Advertiser.

The famous Carnavalet Museum, of Paris, has Just received a notable ac quisition the keys of the Bastlle and a pair of manacles, which will have a mournful interest for Englishmen. After the destruction of the fortress prison the keys were presented as a memento to Santerre, brewer, soldier and revolutionary leader, in whose family they have remained to this day. Hie great-granddaughter. Mme. Villain, has now presented them to i.ie museum, together with the man acles, to which this inscription Is at tached, In the writing of Santerre: "Manacles which were on the wrists of an old man, exhibited In the streets."

In their- turn they are preyed upon by barracudas, sharks, dolphins, bill-fish, red-fish and a hundred and one others. Nature has colored the flying flsh pro tectively. The back is a deep blue, merging into the blue of the seas they frequent, so that thev are invisible a few feet below the surface, while the underneath is a dazzling white, and to a flsh that looks upward must merge into the light falling on the sea. In addition they possess the unique pow er of flight. Flying nan are about sev en inches long and the spread of wings Is about equal to their length. The "wing" is of thin, gauzy suhstanc?. having stiffening sinews, like the fiber of a leaf, to strengthen it. Chinese Woman Gains Honors.

A Ming woman author recently hired i German dressmaker to do some ork for her. The German came to the apartment daily, and after a consultation or a fitting the writer would leave to go about her own busi ness. "I could see that she was trying to place me, ' said the author. In telling the story. "When she first came and saw so many pictures and sketches about the house she asked me If I could pa.lnt, and I replied In the nega tive. "Then she looked around for a piano, i nd seeing none, asked. If 1 could sl.'ig. Again I told her no, and of course It was quite evident that 1 knew nothing about dressmaking. "On her last day I decided to end her suspsnse, so after a little friendly conversation I Informed her In vague but Imp-es8ive terms that I wrote, mentioning one or two things that she recognized.

Indian Native Evidently Had Had Painful Experience. A native of India, who had lost a large an punt of money through the In solvency of an English merchant, ex plained the English Insolvency laws as follows: "In Burma the white man who wants to become insolvent goes into business, and gets lots of goods, and does not pay for them. He then gets all the money he can together, say 30,000 rupees (a rupee Is 33 cents), and puts all of It except 100 rupees away where no one can find It. With the 100 rupees he eoes tn n liM. of the court and tells him ho mni. to become bankrupt. The Judge then tans an the lawyers together, like wise all the men to whom the white man owes money, and he hhvh- "Thi man Is Insolvent, but he wishes to give you an that he has got, so he has asked me to divide this 100 rupees among you all.' The judge thereupon gives the lawyers 90 rupees, and the remaining 10 rupees to the other men. Then the insolvent goes home to Englanf," Aruient Water Pipes. Very primitive water pipes of an .a. dent date li ave been discovered In the streets of Manchester, England. They were holloved-out tree trunks fitted together so as to make a wooden con duit. The joints were somewhat In the style of those of a fishing rod, the thin end of one trunk being made to fit Into the thick end of the other. It is supposed that this means of supply ing Manchester with water was In use about 200 years ago, and discoveries of the same kind made in other towns go to confirm that view. The boring through the wood was about foui inches in diameter. The supply of wa ter in those days was not only much less In absolute quantity than now, but very much less In proportion to population. the The Silent One. Don't tell me what you arc going to do.

An energetic pastor who was n.ak Ing preparations to build a new church received all kinds of advice from par ishioners, and the greatest amount came from thofe who had contributed the least towards the erection of the church. So at the regular services on the following Sunday he said: "I have been receiving lots of ad vice during the last few weeks. I have been told by certain members of the congregation that It will not do to have too many fingers In the pie. I can assure you that I will attend to that part of it; there will be no pie." Montreal Herald. No Whistling on Board Ship. A clvi.ian on the quarter deck of a battleship was waiting to see an offi cer, and to beguile the tedium of wait lng began to whistle a popular air softly. He had not gone far when he was requested to desist. Seeking a reason for this rule, he was told that whistling would interfere with boats wain's calls. "It Isn't your single whistle that would cause the trouble," he was told, "but if whistling were al lowed, there would be a chorus of it going on most of the time, and then the boatswain's whistle would stand a poor chance of being heard." Limits to the Value of Religion. Some years since a meeting was held to discuss selling the Old South Meeting House in Boston. The argu ment advanced by the advocates of the project was that the land had be come too valuable for business to be longer retained for church purposes. The late Charles P.
