r-- , THE BINGHAM NEWS. BINGHAM. UTAW ' JIM O'CONNELL SAYS NOTORIETY v ; OF SALE WON'T INJURE PLAYING LY T W --v fe-- ' jl ' At the Right, Jimmy O'Connell, the $75,000 Beauty, and With Him Willie Kamm, Who Figures to Bring Even More Cash Into the 8n Francisco Club Owners' Safe When He Is Sold This Year. Notoriety of the purchase of Jimmy O'Connell for $75,000 by the New York Giants from the San Francisco Seals has a different psychological effect on arlous players. Every one believes that the attention attracted to O'Con-nell through the sale will mean con-siderable "razzing" from the bleach-ers. O'Connell himself says lie expects It, "but It won't bother me." On the other hand, Willie Kamm, another brilliant star of the San Francisco team, who Is considered next In line to follow O'Connell to the majors at a big purchase price, says he would not like to be In O'Connell's shoes and that such notoriety would bother old mnn Kamm's son. "Yes. I guess the fans will kid me about being a $75,000 beauty," said O'Connell, "but that won't bother me. I know I'm no beauty and I haven't $75,000; so what's the use? Natural-ly I would rather have them pulling for me It sort of helps a fellow' yet I know razzing Is a part of the base-ball profession, and when a fellow gets a certuln amount of It, then he does not pay any nnre attention to ttl I got my share after the Chicago Cubs offered $10,000 for me before I had played a game In the Coast league, and for a while It bothered me." Kamm Is Different. On the other hand, Kamm shows an altogether different feeling. He says : "I think O'Connell Is a marked player and will be for some time to come. Personally I would not like to be in his place. The fans will un-doubtedly expect too much from him and If he makes a boot or falls to come through In a pinch, they surely will give him a good time'. It Is all very well o say that their abuse does not bother you, but it does all the same. I hope when I am sold that It will be for an ordinary sum, lacking in the national notoriety that O'Connell re-ceived. It may be all right for the 'gate' but that does not help a player's personal feelings In the matter. I know when a mnn climbs the ladder and Into fame he is more or less a pub-lic character, but I don't want to climb any $75,000 ladder." gars. If some worthless cusses find out they can live on charity, they are made of the kind of mud to accept charity as long as some of the rest of us will work early and late and give it to them. CHARITY Charity is a noble virtue if not abused. It may be a vice and a liability if improperly used. Not much charity is ever to given the rural people. They have trained thru the centuries of bread by the sweat of their brow. Those who never sweat are the first to court charity. In-dependent folks are a safer class to a nation than the dependant class. In many cases where dis-aster, sickness or accident has come to human beings, charity and donation come in good form and folks are always glad to lake part in such good work.

The American Legion is en-couraging all ex-servi- ce men who feel that they have any disabi-it- y resulting from service in the army, navy, or marine corps dur-ing the World War, to file their claims for compensation as early as possible. The greatest work of the Legion today in settling these claims is in furnishing the Government with sufficient evi-dence to prove that the disability or disease is a result of service. The longer you delay in filing your claim, the greater will be the difficulty in getting the Gov-ernment to take satisfactoiy ac-tion on if. All disabled ex-servi- ce men and women are entitled to compensation, hospitalization, dental and medical treatment, and vocational training provid-ed their infirmities were caused by war service. The best doctors in the coun-try have said that a man who was gassed or suffered from in-fluenza while in the service is liable to develop tuberculosis at any time. The amount of tuber-culosis among ex-servi- ce men is rapidly increasing, and in most cases this has been attributed to one of the two above causes. It is therefore a wise precaution for all ce men and wo-men who were gassed or suffer-ed with influenza to file their claims for compensation now. A new and condensed application blank has been issued by the U. S. Veterans' Bureau for filing claims for any of these advan-tages. GOLFERS NOW DESIRE MORE USEFUL PRIZES Silver Cup- - Trophies Are Rapidly, Going Out of Style. Persistent Tournament Winners Have Long Since Ceased to Admire Me-mentoes J of That Kind Evans Has Big Collection. Silver cups as golf trophies are fast going out of vogue, according to sll-- . , "versmlths, who say that the demand among the golfers for prizes has "'"'' turned to more useful articles since the day of red iacketa and red caos on the links has passed. There Is still a goodly demand for cups among golfers who win events . only occasionally, but the persistent tournament winners have long since censed to prize a silver cup that can only be added to a large number of previously won similar trophies. Two years ago Stewart Stlckney of St. Louis, who-- 1 has won a barrel full of cups during his golfing ca-reer, arranged the pHze lists at the Trans-Misslsslp- championship, held over the links of the St. LouIb Coun-try club, so that f watches and othtr useful Jewels took the place of SO Chick Evans. cups. He declared that he would not help other golfers to clutter up their attic with useless cups. The utilitarian type of prizes for golf con-tests has been becoming more popular ever since. The largest collection rof cups won by any one player bears the name of Charles Evans, Jr., of Chicago, the only man to win both an ama-teur and an open chuinpionshlp In the same year. ,. Evans has turned over all these cups to his club, and the Edgewater Golf club now has the work of keeping them polished and lni,iml nnni,t 1 fl'l, A . 4 insurance on some "OO cups is consid-erable, and the burnishing of tbe ves-sels is equally as expensive. In addition to useful articles of Jew-elry, medals are said to be coming into use more generally. i THE FREEDOM OF THE - PRESS , All human struggles for free dom have been for mere person- - f al rights many of which are ilow i recognized and guaranteed by ; : the civilized nations; many have j been for a freedom of a deeper ? more spiritual nature. After securing for themselves the lib- - ; erty to come and go as they j pleased, people began to desire j the right to think as they choose s and tell their thoughts to others and insist that they were entitl- - i ed to such rights. Until the be-- f ginning of the 17th century these rights had been more or ; less abridged and those who at-- i tempted to speak and write their thoughts freely were subjected i to severe persecution. Then came the champion for the right ; , of free speech and a free press in the person of John Milton, England's great poet and scholar. The laws of his country which prevented him from writing what he choose were intolerable to him and his spirit rose in re-bellion, so great, he issued a challenge questioning the rights of his government in limiting the freedom of speech and the press. All England read this challenge and marveled at the boldness of the man in daring to express himself so freely in the matter. The challenge had its effect, for, near the end of the 17th century the principles of free thought and expression secured a firm hold. The idea grew until now practically, complete freedom in such matters prevail. These rights today are permitted everywhere to a greater extent . than was ever dreamed of by Milton. "Setting" Colors. All colors cuunot be set by the same method. Salt, for Instance, Is ex-tremely effective in setting blues, pinks and some reds. A large table-spoonf- ul is required to a gallon of luke-warm water, lilack cottons or black-and-whi-checks need stronger salt water to be effective, and sometimes a little turpentine may be added to the water. Soak the materials In luke-warm water. Soak browns, deep yel-lows and tans In a solution of one cup-ful of vinegar to a gallon of lukewarm water to set the color. When the light-er shades of yellows and tans become faded, the color can be restored by adding strong coffee to warm rinsing water. From the Designer. :; Walter Travis Traces Longevity to Golfing i - That he owes his life to golf Is the belief expressed by Wal-ter J. Travis, the only American to win the British amateur cham-pionship, after a winter spent In golfing on the Pacific const. "Golfing Is a national bless-ing,'' said the New Jersey play-er. "It prolongs life. I believe that I would be dead now If I had not taken up golf, and my regret Is that I waited until I was thirty-fiv- e years of age be-fore taking to the links with its life-givin- g benefits. Now they . start young, but it Is never too late to begin, for even with my late start I won both the Ameri-can and the British titles, and one may go on golfing many years after the age that would prevent Indulgence In other sports."

THE BINGHAM OF 1917 In perusing some statistics of ore production in Bingham in 1917 these records may today prove of interest. "In 1917 the Utah Copper Co. removed ap-proximately 11,000.000 tons of croppings and ore. The month-ly pay roll of the Mine is over $200,000 distributed among 2,-0- 00 employes. The Mine ships 30,000 tons of ore a day, or at the rate of 200000 cars of ore a year. Sixty locomotives and twenty-on- e steam shovels are kept busy every day on the twen-ty levels, which extend from the pit at the foot of the hill to the top a distance of 1900 feet. The Utah Copper Dividends for 1917 amounted to $20,000,000. The Utah Con. or Highland Boy mines in 1917 payed divi-dends amounting to $1,05,000. The Utah Apex as a champion lead and silver producer paid dividends in 1917 to the amount of $395,150.00. The Bingham Mines Co. in that year paid $178,750.00 in dividends. Altho one can heardly look for another Banner year like 1917 let us one and ali'get out and boost our mines and our town and make it hum with Life. Boost for a bigger and a better Bingham.

PICTURE HUNQ BY "SPOOKS" Rejected Portrait Appeare Mysterious-ly en Walls of lalen In Big New York Hotel. A phenomenon, as startling and mysterious to the officers and directors of the Society of Independent Artists as were the recent ghostly manifesta-tions In Antlgonlsh to tbe MacDonalds and Dr. Walter Franklin Prince, was revealed at the artists' exhibition on the top floor of the Waldorf. The New York spirit nailed a re-jected drawing to a wall, and above It hammered four tacks In a card which told that the picture was the work of Mrs. Knima Mabel Field of Chicago, and was called "Impressionistic Per-sonality Portrait of Miss Edith Iten-nett.- " "Spooks or no spooks," said A. H. Hayllnson, a director and secretary of the society, "that picture has got to come down. No one gave Mrs. Field permission to have !t exhibited, and our walls aren't open for spirits." A special delivery letter from the artlHt to Mr. Uayllnson, arrived a few duys later.
