Recent statistics indicate a mark
ed increase in exports of lumber
from the United States to the
Orient. More than a quarter of a
million feet of American woods are
reported as being used in Samoa,
Hawaii and the Philippine Islands.
Heretofore, it is said, raw mate
rials have been made up into fin
ished articles in the United States,
almost without exception, and ex
ported as such. With the discov
ery by American manufacturers in
the Philippines that they could im
port United States woods and make
them up with profit there, wood
using factories were built. Pacific
coast woods, in consequence, are
in many cases taking: the place of
the native woods with such pic
turesque names as apitong-, teak,
narra and yacal.
Douglas fir, according to the in
formation collected by the forest
service, is the principal wood ex
ported from this country. It is
said to be the favorite wood among
insular manufacturers for flooring,
ceiling, siding, cornice, shelving,
finish and boat work. Makers of
furniture demand California red
wood and sugar pine, southern
quarter-sawed oak, eastern ash,
sugar maple and western white

which with sycamore supplies the
entire demand in the United States.
Wagon felloes are made of white
oak, and other parts of vehicles
are manufactured from high
grades of white ash and white oak.
Ernest Thompson Seton has dis
covered a Natural History of the
Ten Commandments," and he so
styled a lecture which he gave the
lie said that the ten great ordi
nances were not arbitrary laws
given to man, but fundamental
aws of all creation, and he gave
gave many illustrations to show
that both wild and domesticated
animals recognized those laws.
He mentioned amusing instances
n which he had noticed parents of
many species of animals enjoining
obedience on their offspring. There
was, he said, a deep laid instinct
in all animals that disobedience
meant the end of a race.
Morality was a law observed in
most of the higher animals. Mono
gamy in some of the best species of
inimals was not confined to the
mating period, but meant union
for life. All wolves, for instance,
unite for life, help each other to
hunt, bring up the young, and,
though the young might forget
the parents, the latter never forget
The verdict of most hunters to
day was that all the higher animals
mate for life. All successful spe-
ciei ore monogamous, and a mono
gamous animal in battle will always
beat the polygamous. The Cana
dian wild goose carries its mono
gamous habits to the extent that
when it has lost its mate it will
never seek another.
Dr. J. W. Sever, an English sur
geon, urges that school desks should
leave room enough for the knees,
and should be low enough so that
the elbow and forearm may rest
comfortably on them without bend
ing the back.
The slope of the desk theoreti
cally should be about 30 degrees,
but as that is too steep an angle to
allow books and papers to rest on
it without sliding off, a compromise
angle of from 12 degrees to 15 de
grees has been selected.
The seat should be no wider
than the width of the hip, for wider
seats predispose to slouchy atti
tudes. It should be about two-
thirds the length of the thigh. It
may or may not slope very slightly
backward, but this is of no great
importance. Any great slope is dis
The height from the floor should
be such as to allow the feet to rest
equally and comfortably on the
floor. A seat of too great breadth,
as well as one of two great depth,
compels bad postures. The seat
should have a back which supports
the lumbar spine when sitting, at
work, as well as at rest.
MUST NOT DRAG.
The German Government is de
termined that its city streets shall
be clean, orderly and quiet. The
paternal and absolute hierarchy
has recently issued a ukase in the
form of new regulations for the city
The following are some of the
most striking provisions: Women's
dresses must be short enough not
to drag, and so raise the dust or
accumulate mud; umbrellas and
sticks must not be swung or carried
cross-wise; paper, remains of fruit,
cigars and cigarettes must not be
thrown into the street; persons
must not walk more than three
abreast, or stop on the pavement
for any extended period; there
must be no whistling, singing,
shrieking, shouting or loud talking
of any kind; windows must be
closed when music is going on in
side :f building, and carmen must
not drive noisy loads of metal or
other material through the streets.

Times-Star. Mr. Goodwin was de

The friend paused at Mr. Goodwin's

Labouchere and tha Bible.
One day a friend went into the office
of London Truth and offered to bet La
boucbere that he could name a book be
bad not got in the place. On Inquiry
this book was specified as the Bible.
Labouchere offered to bet the man $50
that be bad this book, and then deftly
turned the conversation, wrlUng mean
time a note furtively to the clerk out

underneath and borrow a Bible. Later

and, calling the clerk in, bade him pro

no one in those days ever saw a Bible
