DROP of ink will color a whole glass
of water. It is an inch of yeast which
makes a pan of bread rise, and a single
cake of soap containing unabsorbed
alkali can ruin a hundred times its cost in laces
and fine embroidery. After all, is it wise to take
such risks with common soap ? Of course you
can get along without Ivory Soap. So can a
wagon without axle grease but it goes hard.

CHANGES AT AUGUSTANA:
TO ENLARGE DINING HALL
The executive committee of the board
of directors of the Augustana college
met last week and derided to enlarge the
diiiingroom in the dormitory of the col
lege. The present room in the east por
tion of the building, altnough seating
more than 100 pupil, has been too small
to accommodate the ittudeiits who have
been seeking board there. The rooms
adjoining the hall will be merged into
another large room, thus forming an an
nex to tae tuning hall. The new- room
will accommodate ninety student.
It was aLto decided to publish number
3 of the Augustan Library publications.
Dr. Andrcen will furnish the material for
the publication, working from the sub
ject "Studies in the Idyl of German
Dr. Andreen was appointed a commit
tee of one to arrange for the publication
of the translation into Swedish of Tenny
son's -In Memoriam." The translation
was nude by l-T. Ludwig Holmes of Bur
lington. Tlie plan is to put the book on
talo in Sweden, where it will be generally
read, the proceeds to go to the eollece.
During vacation some of the students
are working diligently for the benefit of
the library board and various puldiea
tions have promised aid. The college
secures the subscriptions and the money
derived thereform is applied to the li
brary fund. I)r. Andreen confident
that $2,000 will be realized in this man
ner, if not more.

FOREST TREES ARE DYING:
BORER WORKS MISCHIEF
The death of the shade trees and
the forests in this part of the west
for the past few seasons has been a
matter of public and private lamenta
tion. The cities have suffered quite
as much ns the country. The perish
ing i'f the forest trees has been act
ually pitiful. The native trees of
Rockford which have for two genera
tions won for this town the soubri
quet of the Forest City have been
pushing out of existence for three
years. The cutting down of the trees
to get their dead trunks out of the
way and out of danger due to their
falling limbs has gone on faster this
fall than ever before.
The explanation penerallv vouch-
afed for this irreplaceable loss is
that the drv sensons hnve cheated the
trees out of their moisture and nour
ishment, causing hiss of vitality and
death. This looks plausible and cor
responds with the facts of observa
tion, but it tells only half the truth.
The killer of the forest trees is the
bovr. Its tleadlv track is to be
found in nearly every dead tree. It
bores back and forth and around till
it has cut off the channels of the sap
supply. The tree lives awhile at a
uying rate, on a partial nourishment
and gives up the fight. The dead
trunks which have cumbered the
(looryards and forest slopes alike
have the fatal register of the work
f the borer.
An instance which amounts to a
demonstration oi the above theory is
furnished by the farm of Hon. K. H.
Sumner, of Pecatonicn. He had n fa
vorite piece of woods on a narrow
enviisiila surrounded on both sides
by the Pecatonicn. He held this as
a reserve fuel supply if other tracts
should give out. It lay next the river
and had plenty of water. The trees
died just the same, and from the
same cause. The insect tells the
