The , woman w ho thinks of nothing but dreHs is pleasanter to look lit Ihiin the vvonian who never thinks of dress. Clothes are said to make the man, but acknowledgments are also due the woman who Keeps the buttons sewed on. The cause of labor ought to be indignant nt the statement that only 1,200 out of 1,000,000 deaths are due to tho gout. No laborer can afford the luxury. Their dying must be of diseuses belonging to the plebian variety. Springville came to the front nobly when the time eume to respond to the call for volunteers, volun-teers, and tlie citizens at large gave the boys hearty and enthusiastic enthu-siastic moral support, to say nothing of the contributions of a more substantial sort. Provo is suffering from npasins of virtue. ' A couple of Hieap detectives have been hired, and Provo courts are full of gambling, liquor.selling and other cases. The epidemic is not regarded as serious, and an tarly recovery is anticipated. John R. Wallis; the man who threatened to brave the terror's of a journalistic necropolis and start a newspaper at Spanish Fork, has changed his mind and gone bt Ueorge. .Newspaper men all give Spanish Fork the cold shoulder when they think of that burg's flourishing job printer. It is interesting to note that Apostle Young and his remarks got very little sympathy from Utah peoble, outside of certain quarters. There was enough uncertainly of the church'a position in the matter, however, to make it r bit awkward for tots of people; The explanation was forth coming, as expected, and Utah took her place in line for the national defence. If the dove of universal peace which a western evangelist says lie sees hovering in the air is really at that altitude it is going to drop its olive branch and become be-come very tired before it comes down. There is no country which isn't at war or talking war; and the conservative old Chicago Tribune declares that war between Spain and this country actually began with the blowing up of the Maine, and is now being prosecuted with such vigor that the bird is liable to be frightened to death. In a crowded church in Poughkeepsie recently the service ser-vice had to be stopped while several fainting women were, carried from the room. Investigation Investi-gation revealed that after the meeting the preceding Sunday the sexton had closed the church without airing it, and the vitiated viti-ated atmosphere had been reheated re-heated for another audience. It is as much a crime for housekeepers house-keepers and janitors to furnish their families and guests with impure air, as it would be to set before tbein unwholesome food. Indeed, a man can live longer without food than with-out with-out airv J I fnthr.' i 4kfnumm. YUUyO RE ?l" I) I AT ED. The letter of the Mormon church leaders to Gov. Wells on the subject of enlistment in ll e United States volunteer forces last week shows that the church as a whole evidently had no pymputhy with the irrational Hud foolish utterances of Apostle Young. The remarks of the church digntaries gave the cue in pretty plain language. But at this point there conies up a very awkward query: Why is it necessary, when the national and State governments cull fr troop, to have the sanction of an ecclesiastical organization in order to get tlieml To our mind the situation situa-tion reveals something decidedly un-American. Here's another interesting query: Why do people who are looked up to hv thousand an knowing what they are talking talk-ing about, make speeches for which explanations and da grams must be furnished later on? And why is it that the explanation- in so imny instances fail to remove the first impressions? Is it intended always that they should? These are things which puzzle and confuse we common people. The church in this instance was on the right side of the question it exerted its influence in-fluence on the side of the Federal government. Enlistments Enlist-ments were rather tlow unt 1 the church announced its -sition. While the contingency seems remote at present, it is not hard to imagine the result had its influence been thrown in the other direction. Is it best that a man's duty to his country and people should be subjected to such in fluences? Ought they to stand as a bar at which men are to have their conceptions of duty arranged for them? A man's first duty is to his God. Who shall say that doing his duty to his country is not doing his duty to his God? A man who allows his patriotism to flow and ebb at the command of another is false to his God, his countrv and himself. Q HOWL AT THE O. S. L. The writer was at Spanish Fork yesterday, and while there listened to a series of growls at the treatment given that burg by the Oregrm Short Line Railway Rail-way and the United States mail authorities. That city, by a combination of circumstances, is thrown as fur into the backwoods back-woods as Milford, Beaver and other out lying settlements. In the first place, the Short Line has pulled off the morning train which used to carry the mail to Spanish Fork, Nephi and other points down the line. Yesterday tho mail come in on a freight train. No Rio Grande .Western mail trains touch Spanish Fork in the morning. Salt Lake morning papers the last few days have been arriving an the only mail train available, i. e., the Rio Grande Western Tintic passenger nt 6:45 p. m., or twelve hours old. This would not be so bad, were it not that the postmaster there closes the office promptly at six o'clock, and people who have not one of the limited number of lock boxes have to wait until the next morning, when the mail matter, papers especially, is 24 hours old. In these exciting excit-ing days, this sort of thing amounts to a positive hardship. This change seems to us a very ill-advised proceeding on the part of the Short Line people. Protests and roars are being sent up along the liue, and from their tone it cannot but result iu loss of business for that road. Springville is not affected, as we have two mail trains on the Rio Grande Western West-ern each morning. In fact, few Utah towns have the mail facilities facili-ties Springville has. The Short Line, after trying the experiment for a time will no doubt go back to the old schedule, with two tiains eaeh way each day. We do not believe be-lieve they can afford to ignore the people in the present stjl very long. In some places the towns may not be able to resent it, but there are others who csn and will.

W. G.T.U.Department Edittd by the Sprinyi-illc Union. Alma and Work of the W. C. T. U. It is doubtless known to runst people peo-ple who know anything of ,nc work of the Woman's Christian Temperance Temper-ance Union that it is an outgrowth of the Woman's Temperance crusade of 1873 "4. Although In fifty (lays this "whirlwind of the Lord," as it has so appropriately been called, swept the liquor truffle out of 2.10 towns, it was found that, a system which was protected pro-tected liy law arid intrenched in the very heart of our governmental life, must he fought not with less prayer; but added to prayer and a (inn faith in Divine guidance, an organized body which should undertake by regular systematic work, the conquering of this powerful foe. The first call for such an organiia- tion was at the Chatauqua (N. Y.) Sunday School assembly in August, 1874, and an organization was effected the following November at Cleveland. Organizations now exist in about 10,000 cities and towns of the United States, with a paid-up mambership of 150,000, and a following of 400,000. The basis of membership requires the signing of the pledge, and the annual payment of dues usually 50 cents. The badge is a knot of white ribbon, and the national motto, "For God, and'Jlorue, and Native Land." Those not familiar with the scope of its work are usually greatly surprised sur-prised to learn that it has now forty departments, each having its own superintendent. Most of the smaller Unions are able to conduct but a few of these departments. Those usually arc Loyal Temperance Legion, which aims to give a regular course of instruction in-struction to boys and girls on the effect o stimulants and narcotics; the Young Woman's. Branch, known as the "Y's;" and the organization department. It is difficult to determine determ-ine which among the many other departments de-partments is of greater importance; local conditions decide that. The W. C. T. U., realizing the great adyantuge which the law gives to liquor liq-uor dealers, bus waged a vigorous warfare for temperance legislation, and has coveted the ballot for women as one of the means toward accomplishing accom-plishing that end. Many pathetic incidents have been told of the good accomplished by what might seem an unimportant department, viz., the Flower Mission. Among the many other branches which receive attention atten-tion may be named, Purity in Literature Liter-ature and Art, Sabbath Observance, Mercy department, Christian Citizenship, Citizen-ship, Sanitary Cookery, Health and Heredity, and the White Cross Society, Soci-ety, an organization for men which has for its aim the advocacy of "The White Life for Two." Work among special classes of people peo-ple has brought forth most gratifying results. Among these are work among foreign and colored people; work in prisons, police stations, jails and almshouses: among roilroad employes, soldiers, sailors, lumbermen and miners. The W. C. T. U. has done most excellent ex-cellent work through the press. Bo-sides Bo-sides its "aolumns", found in so many newspapers throughout the country, it reaches through the medium of its ofllcial organ, 27w Union Signal, tens of thousands of peoplo who are not subscribers. Copies of Tht Union Signal and tracts on all subjects connected con-nected with the work arc distributed in "W. C. T. U. boxes" iu railroad stations, telephone offices, hotel offices and various other places within reach of the traveling public. The foregoing Is but a brief outline of the work being done by the W. C. T. U. in all lands, and what person, of any creed or political party, knowing know-ing its lofty aim and realizing the good it has alieady accomplished, would wish to place the smallest obstacle ob-stacle in its way, or wish to hinder its triumphal march to victory? The Loyal Temperance Legion will meet at 4 p. m. Friday, May 6, in the Baptist ball. t The next W. C. T.'U. meeting will be a mothers' meeting, and will be held In thu Baptist hall. Thursday at 4 p. ui. May 12. Do It In Uusinets Style. Why not apply the same rule in the purchase of your railroad ticket that you would In purchasing other com modities?
