Tha ej.Ition of forests in- the

to timb?r lands in Mesico. This
country has vast tracts of valuable

of the railroads to, make them ol
enormous commercial value. In the
southern part of itie republic the hard
woods, such as mahogany, ebony and.
cedar, have long been exploited and
the supply is growing very, limited
within the access of transportation
facilities. Large forests of such tim
ber still exist, however, in the more
remote sections. In 'the central and
northern parts of the republic there
are large tract^ of soft pine, oak and
miscellaneous varieties, especially on
the western slope of the central
mountain range,'where there are as
yet almost no transportation facili
ties, and along a wide strip of land

BEGINNING OF NOTABLE ELM.,
Fine Tree From Slip Planted by Revo
A magnificent elm tree on the Wal
ter Wellington estate, in the .east part
of Lexington, dates from 1732, and
'was planted by the father of Jonathan
Harrington, who was a small drummer
boy in the revolutionary war. The
boy's father was a farmer and sold
his produce in Salem. On returning
home from'market one day the horse*
was weary and lagging in his gait so
to urge him along Farmer Harrington
plucked a small sapling elm from the
roadside to encourage a swifter gait.
When he got home the sapling was
so -straight and evidently alive that
he put it in the ground. The switch

Philip Verrill Mighels, the writer,
being in London not long ago, informed
Mrs. Mighels one morning that he
had several errands, and would not
wa attended to, he would gratify an
old wish of his and go to see Gold

"how did you accomplish so much in

Mr. Mighels, "the lawyer, the doctor

THE APPEAL:' A?NATIONAL
"Well, 1 declare!" said Aunt Nancy
Winters, "I never did see a turkey fat
up nicer'n that one! I tell you, Pa,
it's too good for jest you an' me to
set down to. Hadn't we ought to in
vite somebody to help eat Thanksgiv
ing dinner?" Aunt Nancy paused in
her task of stripping the feathers
from the turkey in question, and
beamed placidly upon Uncle Isaac
through her gold-bowed "specs."
Uncle Isaac Winters rubbed his
hands together gleefully, and a genial
smile overspread his face. "Jest like
you, Nancy, to think about somebody
sharin' your blessin's. To be sure, to
be sure, have somebody in to help dis
pose of that feller. Who'll you in-
"Well," said Aunt Nancy, reflective
ly, "I've a notion to ask Marietty Pea
body, poor, lonesome old maid! I
don't know as there's a soul in the
village that would enjoy a nice piece
of breast meat an' sage stuffin' an'
Hubbard squash an' mashed potaters
an' gravy an' mince pie an' pumpkin
pie better'n she would. I do believe
she lives pretty slim sometimes."
Aunt Nancy sighed a motherly sigh,
to me Marietty done a foolish thing
when she give Silas Plummer the mit
ten the way she did years ago. I wish
she was married an' settled down in
a home of her own. Silas would be
a good provider an' Marietty she's- a
Uncle Isaac sat down on the edge
of the wood box and looked at Aunt
Oh! the farm was bright, Thanksgiving
With its stacks of hay and shocks of
Its pumpkin heaps in the rambling shed
And-its apples brown and green and red,
And in its cellar its winter store
In bins that were filled and running
With all the things that a. farm qpuld
In barrel and bin and goodly heap,
Hung to the rafters and hid away
Oh! the farm' was a goodly sight that
kind old face. "S'pose we try
a match betwixt 'em," he
sted. "It's high time that old
their'n was cleared up. Let's
as much as ten year, ain't
it. since they quit speakin' to each
other? I say let's ask 'em both here
to dinner to-morrow an' see how it'll
Aunt Nancy stared at him in- amaze-
ment. "Isaac Winters," she* said, "be
you clean gone crazy? Why, the very
idee! A pretty Thanksgivin' it would
be, wouldn't if, with them two glar
in' at each other an' never sayin' a
woiii: My! my! you don't know Ma
rietty Peabody, I guess, or Silas Plum
mer either, if you think you could
pacify 'em at this late day."
"Well," said Uncle Isaac, meekly,
"you know best, Nancy! you always
know best. I thought mebby it would
wcrk all right, but that's all a fool
man knows about sech things. Think
I'd best hitch up an' drive down to
invite Marietty? Jest as soon if you
want I should."
Aunt Nancy turned the big .urkey
over laboriously. "Why, yes, Pa," she
said, "you better go. Give Marietty
my compliments an' ask her to spend
Thanksgivin' with us. If she's goiri'
to meetin' to-morrow she'll like.y ride
home with you in the cutter."
When Uncle Isaac returned, an
hour later, he remarked: ."Marietty
seemed awful tickled about your in
vite, Nancy, an* she said she wa'n't
goin' to meetin'she hadn't a new
thing to wearan' she'd come over
early ah' help fix things for dinner

Uncle Isaacs Matchmaking
"Well," said Aunt Nancy, "that's
real good of Marietty. There'll be
quite a lot of work fixin' the vege
tables an' such, an' I guess she can
help me quite a little. I'm real glad
she's comin', poor soul!"
The next morning when Uncle
Isaac, in his Sunday clovthes, came
into the kitchen and lilted his chin
high so Aunt Nancy could adjust his
collar button and necktie, the dear
old lady said: "If I was you, Pa, I'd
look all over the meetin'-house an'
pick out the lonesomest-lookin' per

invited nowhere to Thanksgivin' din
neran' ask.'em to come along home
"Anybody." asked Uncle Isaac.
"Did you say anybody, Nancy?"
Aunt Nancy started swiftly toward
the oven door. "Land sakes! I be
lieve that turkey's boilin' dry," she
said, as she opened the oven door
with a clang ,and poured hot water
into the sizzling roasting-pan. Her

:'Yes," she said, "ask anybody you
think looks lonesome,"
U^-jle Isaac drove off t6 meeting
with a merry jingling of sleigh bells.
He chuckled to himself as he drove
along. "I shouldn't wonder if Silas
Plummer would be lookin' kind of
lonesome to-day," hes said. "Great
guns! Who'd ever tliink I'd take to
matchmakin' at my time o' rife?"
When the Thanksgiving sermon
had been preached and the last hymn
sung, the congregation moved toward
the doors. Silas Plummer buttoned
his overcoat and prepared to go his
lonely way. But Uncle Isaac, unhitch
ing the old white horse, called to him.
"Hold on, Silas," he said, "don't
you want to ride along with me? An',
say, by the way, Nancy said she'd like
first-rate to have 'you eat Thanks
givin' dinner with us,"
Silas Plummer hesitatedand was
fost. "Much obliged, Uncle Isaac,"
he said "you and Aunt Nancy are
very kind, but I was calculatin' on
goin' to the* restaurant for my din-
"Restaurant nothin'!" cried Uncle
Isaac, jovially. "Come, pile in here
an' we'll be goin'. Nancy'll be jest
tickled to death!"
But. privately Uncle Isaac wasn't
so sure of that. "Merciful Moses!" he
thought, "mebby I've gone an' put my
foot in it. But we'll wait an' see"
how it turns out. If Nancy scolds,
I'll tell her the poor fellow looked
lonesome, an' sure enough he did."
The cutter stopped at the side door
with a jingle of bells. Aunt Nancy
came to the window and looked out.
"Of all things!" she said to herself,
"what in the world possessed Pa to
go an' do that! My land! what shall
I do? Here's Marietty an' there's

Marietta was in the kitchen chop

newcomer, who was ushered into the
sitting room by Aunt Nancy, whose
hospitable soul was filled with con

a desperate move. "Marietty," she
said when she returned to the kitch

trimmed apron. The warm kitchen
had given a flush to her cheeks and

She went through the dining-room
and into the sitting-room. Aunt Nan
cy, listening intently in the kitchen,
heard the sudden dropping of the
armful of wood. "My sakes alive!"
she said, "whatever shall I do. They'll
both get mad an' go home most like
ly. Dear, dear, what did Pa go an'
ask him for?"
In the sitting-room the wood lay
on the rag carpet 'at Marietta's feet
She stooped to pick it up, but Silas
was already gathering the sticks to

hands touched, and they looked al

caught them in his. The next mo

was crying softly upon his shoulder.
He was smiling at her in the old
way which used to be so pleasant tc
her until that misunderstanding came
between them. He took her hand
and led her into the sunny kitchen
where Aunt Nancy was about to tak
Uncle Isaac to task.
The good old people started in as
tonishment as Marietta and Silas en

and the coffee was of her famous
brewing. It was a glorious dinner
and Uncle Isaac said'so after the
guests were one.
