This was the New York's coun

Rockefeller,"and begin 1911 with

GOOD WORD FOR WOODPECKER.
Washington is the first state, so
far as we are advised, to take official
note of the virtues of the woodpeck
er. It is said the state has .adopted
his picture as the state emblem, giv
ing him the position of honor as the
original conservationist. In other
words, the 6tate of Washington has
found that the woodpecker is an in
valuable aid in conserving tree life.
His diet is those insects which are
most injurious to trees. He does not
even ask a bud or kernel that is of
value to mankind. He destroys
nothing that is of assistance to the
human race. All this talk about the
woodpecker destroying the telegraph
and telephone poles i3 the silliest
nonsense. It is like a lot of thing3
that gossip says about people. Those
who voice such sentiments are the
real "knockers," and that leads us to
emphasize the fact that while the
woodpecker is something of a
knocker'' himself, that isn't why
Washington is making him the state
bird. Joliet Journal.

LAWYER has gone contrary
First Licensed With the Idea That He
Would Lessen the Troubles
The first universities of Europe
created the office of doctor of laws
and licensed lawyers, not on the idea
that they would increase the trou
bles of mankind, but would lessen
them, would untangle the threads of
the just and unjust cause and make
straight the crooked paths of the
law, so that the sons of men wotdd
know how to walk a chalk blazed line
through the devious mazes of the
"right" and "wrong." But have
lawyers generally and usually fol
lowed out the grand hope and expec
tation of the noble old universities?
Has the lion lain beside the lamb ex
cept when the lamb was inside?
Many countless lawyers had the in
tention to be good and noble, but
they did not know how. It takes an
Alexander to cut a Gordian knot of
tangles and a Gaynor to see through
the mysterious mazes and the dust
and rubbish of centuries in the law.

RAGGED SPOTS IN GARDEN
These Should Be Filled Up With Varl-
ous Annuals That Will Bloom
In spite of unlimited advice from
garden books and magazines, it is
found by many an owner of an "old
fashioned" garden that it is almost
impossible to avofd bare, ragged
places where flowers have bloomed
and faded and foliage died away, as
is the case with Oriental and annual
poppies, candidum lilies, canterbury
bells and plants of that description.
If perennials are planted too thickly
they do not grow so well, and so it
is a good idea to put in "fillers"
annuals that bloom continuously and
do not throw deep roots, such as nas
turtiums, Japanese mallows, annual
coreopsis, etc. A second crop of an
nual poppies can be grown from the
seed pods of the first crop, but the
wait is a long one, and the second
growth is apt to be spindling. The
more vigorous annuals are really the
