The Basis of Rates The last few yca-s have been perilous ones for public utili ties. The cost of equipment and of "labor have been constantly increasing, while there have been few increases in rates. We do not believe that any public utility can furnish, nor the public obtain, permanent and efficient service without a fair profit. The public is our only source of revenue and any increased taxes, material or labor costs must always be met by the tele phone users either directly or indirectly. We have always endeavored to adjust our telephone rates to make it possible for everyone to be connected who would add to the value of the service, thus giving the greatest good to the greatest number. We believe that the public is best served by our charging rates that will afford us enough money to maintain and operate our system properly, furnish a sufficient surplus fund with,' which to rebuild or restore parts of the plant when worn out, and earn a fair rate of interest for the men and women whr have their savings invested in our property.

OEO. E. FRENCH. Jll-3w County Judge. YOUTH ANDAGE By F. A. MITCH EL Sho was born n flirt. When she was a llttlu girl she preferred tho company of boys rnthor than girls; not that she was a tomboy, for she was very foml nine. When sho was thirteen she cat) tured a boy of ten and gave him n genuine case of love. At fifteen she enthralled a man of thirty. At eight eon her adorers were numberless. At twenty her mother Insisted that sho should stop flirting nnd marry. She promised to think about It, but beforo she had finished her thinking she was twenty-four, and by that tlnu a woman Is hnrd to please. At twen ty-slx she was not only harder to please, but hud fewer eligible men to choose from. Then she woke up one morning to find lforsclf an old maid. She did not like the prospect before her. She declined to accept It. Slu set her jaws and resolved that she would marry for n homo and children. She did not agree with tho poet that "knowledge comes, but wisdom lin gers." She believed sho could select n partner who would fulfill all the conditions of a deslrnblo husband. As for romance, bah! Had she not been very nearly in love with Chnrllo Ash urst, who bad afterward gone to the bad? Sho had been engaged to Tom Chester, who was now a fat, baldhead cd pig. Her mother had Interposed be tween her and Jimmio Ludlow, who bnd married and had been divorced for cruelty, well established. This was or had been romance. No more of It for her. Sho wanted a man who would go to business In the morning, return In the evening and not bother her for those little attentions husbands usual ly desire. She would lavish her affec tion on the children. She met a mnn a few years her sen lor who seemed to fill tho bill. On meeting hur he seemed Interested In her. He did very little talking, but was a first jato listener. So far as sho could discover there wns not n spark of I'omanco In him. Sho defer milled to marry him If she could. Ueabzlng that tho coquettish ways of a girl in her teens would not avail her now. sho tried to make herself accept able to him as a companion. Sho ...II.,.. I ...... I.. ...... .!.-. rtt uinvi-ii rv.-nsiuij-, uciuil SCUSlUiy. admitted that she had made a mistake in not marrying when younger and would like to rectify the error before It was too late. Any time was time enough for a home, but would soon be too late for children. She also Inti mated (hat the man she wanted was one who would make her eomfortnblc. Loe after marriage, she bad heard married persons say, was, after all, but an Intensified companionship. He neither assented nor dissented from this. He looked at her curiously while she was saying It, and sho won dered what bo was thinking about Perhaps it was his reticence nnd her own curiosity that gave her an Inter est in him, the strength of which she did not realize. Sho noticed that, though he said very little, what ho did say Inspired confidence. After an even ing spent In his company she felt her inferiority. He paid her few compli ments, but when ho did praise her she felt that he meant It nnd she de served It. Notwithstanding that they were much together nnd she had admitted that she wished to marry, he did not pro pose. Either he was obtuse or he preferred to remain a bachelor. Nev ertheless his visits Increased In fre quency, and at last he was with her every other evening. Finally ho said to her: "Your philosophy has converted me. A marriage based on common sense Is worth a dozen with no other foun dation than infatuation. That's what it is, infatuation. I.Ike you, I wish to marry for n home and children." "It's coming at last," she said to herself. "At my time of life 1 look for the woman who Is most likely to make my home comfortable. I have been con sidering two women not that I have any assurance that I can get either yourself and another. I think the oth er will make me the more comfortable, though sho Is not as attractive as yon." This was too much for her philoso phy. Sho looked at him, trying to And voice to make a reply, but feared to betray herself by a quivering lip. "I would like you to meet my liaucee," ho continued. "Sho Is not intellectual, but practical. One thing about her that has gone far to decide mo In her favor Is that sho is an excellent cook." At last sho found voice to speak. "Your words are positively brutal!" lie burst Into n laugh, at the same time taking her Into his aims. "Am I more brutal," he said, "than )he girl who drovo Fred Jones to at tempt suicide?" "Fred Jones!" "Yes. I am that Fred Jones whom you lured to a proposal eleven years ago and who left you to Jump Into a river, from which ho was unwillingly rescued. Ho recovered from a desire to fill himself with dirty wntcr, but has never recovered from his lovo of tho dear girl who sent him forth thnt night to"- "licavensr she interrupted, "i can remember n good many of them, but I can't recall any ono by the name of .Tones." "It doesn't matter. The ago of ro manco with us hns pnsral. Wo need each other now. In our youth we didn't; tho world was ours." Tlioy were married, nnu every one suld, "Whnt a lackadaisical couple!" Love and a Cathedral Altar. The high altar of tho Freiburg ca thedral, with its matchless carvings, tells n story not only of lovo, but of love's triumph through tho sharp wit of tho lover. Tho simple woodenrver, Hans l.cfrlnk, who had been the early protego of Maximilian I., 200 years beforo Alsaco was captured by tho French, luid dared to lovo tho daugh ter of a rich man, and sho was foolish enough to lovo him in return. The in dignant parent, when tho youth had received tho commission to enrvo tho high nltar, nnd on the strength ot this honor asked for the hand of his love, received tho haughty response, "When you carve an altar as much higher than the church In which It stands, as my daughter Is higher than you, you may lead her to that altar in marriage." It was an Impossible condition, but noth ing Is Impossible to love. When tho altar had been Installed It was ob served that the topmost point of It wns bent forward, extending In a curve, nnd was actually about fifteen Inches higher than the church. It merely stooped a little In order to conquer. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. When Gasoline Huns Low. In Farm and Fireside Is an Ingenious suggestion for autolsts whoso gasoline has run so low that they have trouble In hill climbing. Ono sometimes is caught out with n low supply of gasoline through having to make long detours to avoid bad roads or from other causes. The sup ply can be made to stroteh over this emergency by adding denntured alco hol or kerosene. Occasionally thero Is sufllclcnt gasoline for tho ordinary lev el road, but not enough for an unex pected hill. In this ease tho principle of pressure feed enn be applied. Screw tho cap down tight on thu gasollno tank and then sharpen a match to lit tho venti lating hole In thu cap. Blow Into this holo as hnrd as posslblo and immedi ately plug with a sharpened match. Usually this will enable tho driver to make tho hill without further trouble. Hut If not ho can turn the car around and back uphill. Doctors' Bills. Your doctor's bill, as a general rule, reads, "For professional services ren dered." That means thnt you aro to pay for work done and not for miracles performed. If you hire n doctor to at tend you In sickness you enter a con tract to pay for his expert services, whether bo succeeds In curing you or not. it would be unfortunate for both parties In tho contract If tho terms wcro otherwise. Two things are not yet clearly un derstood by some people flrst, a doc tor's fee Is collectable, and, second, a doctor Is not legally bound to attend any one under any circumstances un less he wants to. You can't make a doctor work for a contingent fee, and you can't make him work at all If ho chooses to refuse his services. Chica go News. One of Nature's Show Places. Ogden canyon, a deep cleft through the towering Wasatch mountains, over looking tho Great Salt lake, is one of nature's show places, cut In tho solid rock by tho river which runs through It, tho rushing water, from prehistoric times, carrying quantities of sand nnd gravel which simply filed out tho pres ent wonderful canyon. Ogden river was flowing west along Us present courso before the lofty Wasatch moun tains came Into existence. The raising of the mountains went on slowly for ages, so slowly that tho river kept Its place by cutting down Its ever rising bed. In no other way can scientists rationally account for a river rising on one side of tho range and flowing di rectly across it. Argonaut. Magnetic Storms. Contrary to tho general belief, mag netic disturbances do not begin nt the same moment all over the globe. In stead of that they progress around tho earth. In the case of abrupt disturb ances, which are usually comparative ly mlnuto In their effect on the com pass needle, the complete passage around tho earth requires from thrco to four minutes. For the bigger ef fects or for the greater magnetic storms the rnte of progression Is slow er; so that It would tako them half an hour or more to puss around the earth completely. Festival of Minerva. The most notable festival at Athens was in honor of Minerva. All classes of citizens on this day mnrehed In pro cession. The oldest went first, then the young men, the children, tho young women, the matrons and the peoplo of tho lower orders. The most prominent object In tho parade was a ship pro pelled by hidden machinery nnd bear ing at Its masthead the sacred banner of tho goddess. Curious Lake. In the center of Klldlne, an Island In the German ocean, Is u curious lake. The surfaco of Its waters Is quite fresh and supports fresh water creatures, but deep down It Is as salt as the great est depths of the sea. and salt water fish live In it. HlQhly Important.

Tho Swamp farm, ns It was called wns situated four tulles out of Dayton and was owned by tho Widow Bliss. Tho tin peddler, the sewing machine agent, the book canvasser, tho patent right man and many otliors who enmo that way saw, ml ml red and wero ready to love the owner of the Swamp farm, She admitted to herself that It might: be better If she had a good husband, but she had a "nay" for all these men except one. He was a Mr. William Iturton. Ho wns a man Just about her age and ranked as an old bachelor. Mr. Hurton didn't begin as most of tho others had. He had tho senso to ad mit o the widow without telling tier that he admired. Mr. Burton could talk of soils, crops, swamps, tho weather and a hundred other things and never let a hint fnll that he intended some day to talk of lovo and matrimony. The widow mentally pitied him for this, and yet sho felt a bit piqued. Mr. Hurton was a surveyor, and his duties called him Into the neighbor hood of tho Swamp farm about ouco u week. Ho could probably hnvo mndo it once In two weeks nnd;perhnp3 onco In four, but It's nono ot our business. Along about Wednesday In every week tho widow would look out of tho front door nnd see Mr. Burton surveylug or pretending to. Ho would look up by accident and sco her standing thero nnd would be invited In to drink a glass- of fresh buttermilk. This thing had gono on for a long, long time when he callcd-ono day, not to survey her garden, but to sit In tho house and talk. "Widow. I have been coming hero n long time," he began. "And It has tired you out?" sho Innghed In reply. "Not u bit. I camo today to ask you to bo my wife." "Mr. Burton." replied tho widow, "I mndo up my mind about this marrlago question quite a long tlmo ago. I shall marry tho man who can tell mo how to mnko money out of my old swnmp. When I am sure that ho has told mo right ho may bring In tho prencher." "That old swamp has been a bleak spot for fifty years." ho said after a time. "By tho way, you don't own all the swamp, do you 7" "No. There's twenty-eight acres of It that belong to Mr. Cooper, but ho can't do anything more with his part than 1 can with mine." Mr. Hurton walked down to tho edgo of the swamp and back again, and then he sat down nnd took his head In his hands and thought and thought, By and by he looked up with a bright smile on his face and said: "Mrs. Bliss, I have got It. I have solved the problem. You nro to turn that swamp Into a frog farm!" "Gracious me. but whoever heard of such a thlng7" sho exclaimed. "Lots of folks have heard of It There are half a dozen men In this stato who are raising frogs for tho market nnd mnklug n henp of money out of It." "Hut I never heard of any ono selling frogs," persisted the widow. "Would any ono In Dayton eat a frog, much less buy one? "Not In Dayton," ho laughed, "but in Now York. They aro on -the bills of faro at most hotels and restaurants and nro considered a great dellcncy. They eat only the hind legs." It was a week later that men nnd boys called at the Swamp farm with palls and baskets and paper bags. When the widow had bought COO big and little frogs and paid out so much money that she had to let her tuxes slip by she went down to the swamp ono morning to have a look at her "live stock." Not a frog wns In sight this morning, not n big ono or n little one. Thnt swamp was absolutely without life. Tho widow ran back to tho house and arrived there Just a mlnuto beforo Mr. Burton nppeared. "I I was going to send for you!" sho Kaspcd. "What lias happened?" ho nsked. "Kvory frog has dlsnppcaredl" "You don't say!" "Como along nnd see for yourself." IIo walked along down to tho swamp with her, and she heard him chuckling as ho walked. Instead of looking over tho swamp to see if ho could solvo tho problem ho sat down on a log nnd bo gan to laugh. "Whnt do you mean, Mr. Burton?" wns almost demanded. "I was to tell you how to mnko money out of this old swnmp." "Yes, you said you could, but It serins you havo only shown mo how to lose money Instead." "You aro wrong, widow you nro wrong," said Mr. Burton. "You see, thero wcro twenty-eight acres which you didn't own. I bought them. When you had 000 frogs on your sldo of tho swnmp I threw a lot of frog food In on my side. Last night your 000 camo over the lino. They nre now mv prop erty." Tho widow looked nt him with min gled amazement and Indignation. "Oh, don't look that wny." ho laugh ed. "I am now going to tell you how j on may mnko tho money." "now how" sho stammered. "Why, mnrry tho man who owns tho COO frogs I" ho replied. And after about a month sho did. Sho not only mndo money out of tho frog farm, but she got n good husband besides, and that Is something that money cannot buy.
