Arboriculture, a magazine publish
ed by the International Society of
Arboriculture, advisee farmers to
plant treen not for sentiment, but for
the profit there is in them. It says :
"There is no danger of our planting
too much timber, and the farmers
who begin now and plant a fair pro
portion of their landa in such timber
as is in constant demand at high
prices, will in due timo reap their re
ward, and it will come when they
begin to feel like retiring from ardu
ous labor of farm life."

Considerable comment in a good na
tured way is being made on the faet
that Judge Alton B. Parker has red
hair. His hair is not of the flaming
red color, hut it is red enough for its
owner to be called red-headed. Judge
Parker, when be is inaugurated as
president will have the consolation of
knowing that at least one of his pre
decessors had hair of tibia color. That
pr?sident waa Thomas Jefferson, the
founder of the Domooratio party.
Some think that this ie a ooinoidenoe
that augurs well for partysuooess during
the election now approaching. They
say that the first president given by
the Demooratio party to tho United
States was red-headed, and that the
nomination of a man with that oolor
of hair means that he is to be elected.
Good roads are again being agitated
throughout the oountry, and we are
glad of it, for the subject should
never pass out of the minds of the
people. Anderson County is far
ahead of many other counties in the
condition of her roads, but there is
still room for improvement in every
section of the county, ?nd we should
strive to improve them every year.
(Jood roads are as necessary to the
p3ople of a commonwealth as are good
houses. If tho arteries are the life oz
the body, its highways are the life cf
a State. Remove itt: noan s of inter
course With the out?ide world and any
community would become insular in
all the manifold meanings of the
word. Improve them, and so make
material, intellectual and social
breadth. Of what use are schools,
(Churches and other institutions, whioh
stand for the symbols of enlightenment
if they are not accessible? Good
roads are the cords which bind toge th
? er the mental, material and social
life or the,.1 oountry side. Without
them prosperity languishes, advance
ment halts, and the hardships of prim
itive conditions maia narrow the
environments of the people. The
increased valu?' of property which they ?
touch; thc acceleration ol' business
and trades of all kinds, the facilities
for expansion un all linee; these and
countless other benefits prove good

Fort Arthur is a wonderful fortress and
its siege will be one of the greatest in
history. If the forts are undermined,
or if tho garrison within the city take

The guns of the Japanese aro al

Mukden and are endeavoring to cut

his army. Russia is pushing men to
the front as fast as possible, but the
cold weather is making the little rail
road through Siberia almos* useless.
In a short tune no moro troops can be
transported except in such handfuls
as to be only a sop for the JapB.
Some reports say that there is the
greatest distress in Fort Arthur and
others that the garrison and people are
doing well and prepared to withstand
a very long siege. One .report says
that tho garrison has been reduced to
