being so near the close of the year
1880 , all newspaper men are busily
engaged in making footings of the
' of publishing
year's progress for the purpose
lishing to the world , in a concise form ,
what has been done , what Important
business transacted , the extent of
mining developments and the value of
new improvements made in the lead
ing towns and cities. No place is this
feature of newspaper enterpriee bet
ter observed than throughout the
west , and I pttsuma this year's showing -
ing will be as fully satisfactory as any ,
if not better than former years. That
of the city of Ogden , I am sure , will
excel any former year. The cost ,
number and style of new buildings
exhibit a healihy state of improve
ment * , while business interests were
never so extensive. Since the census
enumeration last June , fully 500 per
sons have increased our then popu
lation of six thousand , and this is
"being augumented by daily arrivals.
The demand for housesis far in ex
cess of the supply , while our hotels
cannot accommodate all who apply
At this time , one of our most presiiu
needs is that of a large first class
hotel , and this need is so well under
stood that we are confident that an
other spason will see the erection of
& such an institution. Our city official ! !
have awikened to the wants of our
city and bate beeu active in improv
ing our streets , building needed brid

a complete system of water vorks.
How soon wo will be supplied with

The Russians are particularly
charmed vrith the democratic maunora
of Americans. Theae appeal to a
characteristic national trait of the
Russians themselves. They despise
from the bottom of their hearts all
pretension , arrogance and walking on
stilts. That is why the Russians
stretca friendly hands to the people
across the ocean , ia spite of the abyss
that lies between their government
and that of the union.
My personal experience is thab
American citizens in general , and
American business men in p rtculi\r ,
are warmly welcomed in Russia. On
the pirt of the Czar's government
there is not the least fear that hey
will inoculate the Russians with re
publicanism. Onca 1 asked o colonel
of gendarmes whether he had nny sip-
prehension of dangerous resulU irom
the close relations of the Russians mid
the Americans. "Not the least , " he
answered , promptly , "Your" citizuns
are too sensible and practical to be
dangerous to our tioverntnent. To
imagine a practical Yankee indulging
iu theorizing with the Russians would
bu to suppose the moit improbable of
all improbable things. "
Thu Russian capitalists and busi
ness men in general are apparently
glad to have Americans come nere ,
and closely observe their waya of do
ing business. They prefer to invite
American engineers to Russia instead
of sending their engineers to ntudy
in America. It appears that the work
done huro by Yankee engineers has
continued the high opinion which the
Russians had formed of the. " before
hand. The grain elevators built b
them in seine Russian ports , the bor
ing for petroleum in the Caucasaus ,
and some of their miiiingoxperiments
satisfied the highest expectations of the
Russians. American agricultural m.i-

American capital in Russian manufac

interesting one , and I wanted to get
opinions about it. A Russian friend
introdnccd me to the director of the
department of manufacture and trade.
I asked his excellency whether he
would advise American manufacturer !
o come to Russia and engage in buai'
ness. "Most heartily , " ho answered ,
"thouch I don't believe that at pro
eent your manufacturers can bo in

Prince 0. is one of the largest land
owncre in Russia. He employs i
number of German agriculturists ti
look after hia property over aixt ;
thousand acres on the Volga. I calle !
ou him and asked whether he wonlt
like to replace hi Germans with Am
ericans. "Only let me have aoin
practical American fsrmers , " said th
prince , "and I will not employ any
body else. But the trouble is. tha
your farmers seem to be perfectly satis
fiedftt homo , and do not care to mak
roubl.8 and imperials so long as the ;
are picketing dollars. I think i
would pay American manufacturers o
agricultural machines and implement
to tend over here , say one hundrei
skilled farmers. They would readil ;
find employment with our large laud
owners , and would be able to demonstrate
strato the fall value of American fare
machines. Undoubtedly this wouli
increase the demand for the machine
more rapidly than advertisements , ox
hibitlons or agents. Russia is preeminently
eminently a farming country , and ho
prosperity depends wholly on he
cropt. Yet we do our farming on i
prehistoric plan. Now the crisis ha
come , and it puts a grave question before
fore us. Either wo must apply al
the modern Improvements in agrfcul
ture to our land , or we must bo pre
parad to be cnt off from the clvilizet
world. What a chance there is fo
the enterprising Yankee to come ti
us , to stir us up , to show us how ti
nandle these machines , and to creati
an immense market for their owi
wves. Our misfortune is that ou
educated men become functionaries
parts and parcels of the complicate *
and rickary machinery called bureau

Yankees are especial'y welcome here. "

That is not the right way. Look

get something ahead , use it to support
yourself while you learn. Ten thou

who never asked anybody to grind an
ax for them. " No young man with
good health and strong arms should
offer any such excuse. If he ia made
of the riyht metal , the clear ring will
