It is no sine cure, as uli will readily attest who have occupied this editorial chair. 1 was induced to take charge, mainly for the reason, that I had considerable leisure, my law practice only occupying a portion of my time, and as it confines me to the office all the the time, the eitra hours can he utilized in looking after the in terests of the paper. It shall be my earnest endeavor to conduct the sheet in such a manner as to do justice to all, and thereby merit the approbation of all. As heretofore this paper will be independent in politics, and neutral in religion. The paper will be pleased to note all the news and gossip, and to give a report of all meetings, society gatherings and fraternal associations, in short to make it a receptical f o r nil the interesting and important doings of the city Respectfully, D.C.Johnson. General Kitchener is now en listing Boers to tight Boerg, which is decidedly English, you know. Hon. Grover .Cleveland is again well enough to do a little shooting mi writing. But there are still lots of men who think he shoots belter thun he writes. The Berliners have no love for the Prince of Wales, who is now in that city to attend the Emperor's birthday celebration, and they are letting him see it Successful politicians in Wash ington generally agree that their prestige consists not so much in keeping their wits together, as in keeping their lips together at the right lime. It is possible that the visit of Prince Henry will inspire Ed-win Ed-win Markham to the writing of a poem to commemorate the occasion. oc-casion. It could be called "The Man With the Ho enzorllern." General Booth oi the Salva tion Army i9 failing rapidly in health and it is feared that his death may cause ft schism in the ranics of the organization that will impair its usefulness in the future. We always thought Schley was wise, and since he said: ''I have no aspiration for any civil office," we are sure of it. Congress might show its appreciation appre-ciation of such rare wisdom by making him a full admiral. An Indian man, 58 years old, is about to marry his thirteenth wife. Here is refutation for the "unlucky thirteen superstition. But it may be, judging from the gentleman's widows, that it will be unlucky for th wife. The Emporor of Austria asked Charles M. Schwab if an American Amer-ican found anything in Europe worth learning, to which the steel king replied that the greatest great-est ideas como from Europe, but that Ajnorica perfects them. On Thursday, Jan. 23, tha 10,000 mark was passed in the number of bills presented for consideration at this session in the House of Representative. Congress had been in session only twenty-eight actual working work-ing days. It is not t he person of Edward VII whom the President is hon. oring by sending an ambassador to the coronation. It is the whole English people with whom our social relations are pleasant and our commercial relations re-lations the most profitable, A Holstine cow, owned by a resident of Luke Mills, Wis. holds the worlds reerod for a seven days production of milk and butter, the amount being be-ing 584 pounds of milk and 29 pounds of butter. That cow had better feed than that afforded affor-ded by the Springville City pasture. A genuine gold find of con-siderable con-siderable value was made by workmen digging a machine pit for the installation of a new elevator in the Denver city ball. The mine is under the center of the building and about eighteen feet below the street level. It may prove a bonanza if the vein of sand that shows the "color" can be traced to some locality where it can be worked. The celebration of the 200th anniversary of the founding of Mobile, Ala., recals to historians histor-ians the fact that the flags of France, Spain, England, the United States, the Confederacy, and the United States again, have all waved over the city. It was the first capital of the great Louisiana territory, the acquisition of which will be cel ebrated at St. Louis next year The Pan-American conference, confer-ence, in session at Mexico city, unanimously adopted a resolution reso-lution in favor of the building of an isthmian canal by the United States, showing that the project has the approval of all, the American republics. The canal plan was characterized as worthy of the greatness of the United States and to the greatest great-est degree benefiicial to the world. A new evening star has arisen in the literary firmament of Utah which has been christened "The Salt Lake Telegram", which made its first appearance on Friday evening Jan. 30th, as a star of the first magnitude. The make-up and dress is very fine, its general and local news full and up to date, and the editorials ed-itorials well written and pithy. May its light increase until it shall attain to all the excellence that its projectors may desire. A dispatch from Washington says the Senate Pension Commission Com-mission reported favorably Senator Sen-ator Mitchell's bill granting pen-sions pen-sions to survivors of Indian wars that took place between 1817 and 1856. As the Black Hawk war occurred occur-red in the sixties it will be seen that it ia not covered by the above bill, but it is only a step in advance, and a question of a very short time when the Black Hawk veterans will be remembered. remem-bered.

KEEP YOUR BLOOD GLEAN their journey to Zion. With the merry-makers were twelve persons who had lived in Nau-voo Nau-voo and were acquainted with Joseph smith. They had a glorious glo-rious time! From a contemporary one verse of a six verse poem is clipped clip-ped and quoted. "Oh! shun not the man whose clothes aren't so good As those that envelop your form. You know not how he may be battling for food, Exposed to life's pitiless storm. Bestow not a cold, freezing look when you meet, But cast an encouraging glance. And always remember a true heart may beat Neath a patch on tli6 seat of his pants". From our knowledge of human hu-man anatomy we were led to believe be-lieve that the heart beats its little tattoo about eighteen inches inch-es above the point indicated in the poem. "Wanted an idea", is an advertisement ad-vertisement frequently met with 111 our exchanges, for which advertisers are willing to pay liberall v. If some of our local speakers could only nail some of the alleged" idees that -Us now passing through my mind", nnd get them into merchatable shape, what fortunes for-tunes would be in store for them. Did you ever hear the reraark,"If I could onlv col-lect col-lect my ideas"? Just as though ideas skip through some peoples minds like lambs in a pasture! Go to friend, ideas are not as plentiful as vou imagine. If you chi) only get two or three good ideas into your head in a life time and make proper use of them you can count yourself very fortunate. All the thoughts that pass, hickery- dickery-dock through the mind are not ideas. For example; a man a few years ago was cutting stamps apart with a,pair of scissors, when the idea flashed into his mind that the operation could be simplified and made practicable. With the idea burning in his mind he rushed off to the Patent Office and illustrated to the officials in charge, by pricking holes with a pin between the stamps, which caused them to separate easily, and the perforating machine was the result, for which the inventor received $25,000.
