"Do you be Mr. Kane, slr? Ifs Mr.
Peter Tidmoro Kane, in the real estate
business, I*m wantin' to see."
The gentleman addressed looked
down with some ai?oaishment upon
the sharp little freokled visage that
was upturned as he replied: "I am
Mr. Kane, my boy. What do you want
"Sure, I'll be tellin' ye, but ifs migh

small place at the foot of the hill I'd

Mr. Kane was growing interested.
Tho small boy had a brisk, business
way with him, quite out of proportion
to his size, which was that of an aver
"It is a little out of the usual line to
take work in return-"
"Oh, it will be equally satisfactory if

and 'tis a good bargain ye'll have, wld
me mother along wid me, and she that
aiger to be at rest wanst more. 'Tis
the plazed ?woman she'll . be that all's
settled so well."
"But hold on!" said Mr. Kane. "I
like to know something about my ten
ants. What security can you give me
that I shall find you responsible?"
"Sure, 1 tould you that I was named

Tid for short. We'll move in the day,
and I'll just come up for me orders in

'contentedly as if ho carried a signed
lease in his pocket
"Biddy Moran? To be sure. She
worked for us one summer a dozen or
more years ago," said Mrs. Kane, when
her husband appealed to her for con
firmation of the boy's story. "Not

recollection of the sharp, little, un
couth figure as contrasted with his
own well-favored person.
Sure enough, the first sight that
greeted Mr. Kane the next morning
was Tid, keenly examining his garden
beds, shaking his head portentously
over popples and lilies, and getting
down on his knees to sniff at the to
mato-vines, with a curious uncertainty
not to say contempt, that sent the
garden's owner hurrying down to pre
vent any possible catastrophe.
"Ifs a fine lot of weeds ye've saved
np for me, sir," Tid greeted him
brightly, "but I'm feared they've run
over the plants Intirely. Or it ls a
wild garden you do be having here?
Me mother tell? me that you grow
things small in this state, and ye do it
uncommon well, I should say. Belike
it has to be tuk out of you that way for
the big hearts ye've got,'-" with a re
spectful deference that disarmed his

have you seen anything finer, that you

"Faix, I think it wor in Californay,"
hazarded Tid, as if he were drawing
his recollections from some deep well
of memory. "The tomatuses growed
on vines as high as the house, I mind,
and there were men up on step-ladders
pickin' them, and the lilies and the
vi'lets and the poppies all run wild in
the fields, they did, and the roses were
like to smother the house, and the coo
cumbers were as long as I am. and a
dale longer sometimes. That's the
country, If ifs gardenln* ye're after."
"I wonder you kit it," remarked Mr.
"I'd wonder that mesilf, If there wor
ary show for dacint Americans out
there," admitted Tid. "The pigtails
and the greasers have lt all their own
way. Ifs quare how there's something
torninst wan most lverywheres in the
West. In Nebrasky it wor the 'hop
pers, and in Kansas tue drought. Up
in Washington it aither rained all the
time or the chinook blasted things,
and down in Texas there wor the cat
tle every which way. It do be good to
get home to the states," and Tid drew
a long breath of satisfaction. "But
this isn't worruk at all, and if ye'll
put me to it, I'll be diggin' in."
Mr. Kane found the boy eager to
learn and tireless in his efforts to
please, and although he made some
blunders, by the end of the week he
had won the favor of the household,
and was allowed to make himself use
ful about the place In very much his
own way. This sometimes resulted in
queer turns of fancy, according to the
Eastern view of things, as when he
was found in the early morning sweep
ing up grasshoppers from the lawn to
feed the fowls, and carefully treasur
ing pocketfuls of gravel while he was
still new to the situation.
"Sure, it wor the lashings of 'hop
pers we had out on the perrarles, but
niver a stone to the size of a pea
there. Ye have them betther distri
buted here, and ifs a fine country,
though the things do grow small," he
decided, appiovingly, when the waste
of his efforts was pointed out Lo him.
It would appear that the Mulligans
had drifted all over the West in an
aimless fashion, "saking health and
betterment," as Tid expressed It, till
the death of the father left his mother
free to return "for the making of me,"
he confided to Mr. Kane.
"Sure, a lad nades to be looking up
to a good man, me mother says, and

becility on my part. Who wants an
inconveniently active conscience in
these days? I'll throw off the yoke be
fore lt fastens tighter. I'll discharge
Tid and send the Mulligans packing."
But to look into Tid's trustful eyes
and make this decision known was
more than Mr. Kane cared to do at
that moment. It might be better to
talk the matter out with Tid's mother,
he concluded. A little bribe, now, to
persuade ber to move on, say, without
betraying his part in the transaction,
would make everything smooth and
Mr. Kane had not seen Mrs. Mulli- 1
gan. Tid had caught his fancy, but he
bad felt sure that the mother would
be a bore, and had avoided the house.
Well, they had transformed the deso
late shanty into rather a picturesque
spot by the vines they had trained
over lt, and the woman displayed some
of Tid's own confidence lu receiving ,
"Sure, I felt yez comin', sir," she ex
plained. "Be Bated, plaze. I'd pass

It struck coldly home to Mr. Kane's
understanding that his task was none
the easier for coming here. This lit
tle helpless woman, with her useless" ~
feet and crippled hands, all gnarled
and twisted with rheumatism, and her
wistful face beaming with tremulous
pride, was scarcely a better subject
for his retaliation than Tid himself
would have been.
Nettled and dlsooncerted, but unwill

"How did you come by that ridiculous
notion of training the boy after me?
Wasn't there any better model to bo

j Dr. W. Schlich, the well known for
t expert, in a recent address before
e London Society of Arts predicted
positive timber famine in the near
uture unless systematic measures for
Increasing the world's supply be speed
ily adopted. He pointed out that the
se of wood, in spite of its replacement
y coal as fuel and by steel in con
struction, was steadily increasing. The
per capita consumption in the four
chief countries of Europe is now 14
cubic feet each year, and in a few
years will probably reach 20 cubic feet.
For this increase the use of wood in
paper making seems chiefly responsi
ble. The steady rise in prices, espe
cially of coniferous woods, in spite of
much cheaper transportation, shows
that the world's supplies are rapidly
Only nve out of 18 European coun
tries export more timber than they im
port Scandinavia and Russia are the
principal exporters. The limit of pro
duction in the former seems to have
been reached. Russia still has large
forests, but domestic demands are rap
idly increasing, and an exportable sur
plus cannot long be depended upon.
The North American supplies are
visibly declining. China has no tim
ber to spare, and that country, when
developed on modern lines, will be
an Importer rather than an exporter.
There remains the rest of Asia, South
Africa, America and Africa as sources
of supply. But these do not furnish
any considerable amount of conifer
ous woods, which are most in demand.
Dr. Schlich therefore concluded that
the danger was r^actically at hand,
and that deficiency of all kinds would
soon occur unless remedial measures
The remedy Is easy, although time
is required for its application. It is,
as Dr. Schlich pointed out, to culti
vate timber upon waste land, just as
other crops are cultivated upon more
fertile coil. In Great Britain alone
there are 25,000,000 acres of such lands,
One quarter of this area, Dr. Schlich
asserted, would make the country in
dependent of foreign supplies of tim
ber. The same remr/ly would restore
the declining timber Industry of the
That this remedy will have to he
adopted soon is evident, for natural
growth can no longer keep pace with
demand. The country that first en
gages In systematic timber cultivation
on a large scale win do much to as
sure its own perpetuity as a nation,
That Spain's political and industrial
decline dates from the practical wip
ing out of her forests is a fact from
which it is easy to draw the lesson.
