THE LISTENING WOODS.
I went to the leafy forest;
Not a leaf, not a flower was stirred;
Still, in its nook, was the dreaming brook.
Still was the nesting bird.
I looked at tho shadowed mosses,
I looked at the nest o'erhead,
I looked at the small brook dreaming
Alone in its sandy bed.
I listened long in the stillness;
I listened and locked in rain;
It seemed that the silent forest
Never would wake again.
At last, like a gentle breathing.
A wind of the southland blew.
And it whispered. "The folk of the forest
Are listening, child, like yon!"

treatment which would fiive to another
apparently very much like the first the
must deadly offense; and, to make the
matter still more complicated, there is no
reason why through sins of the liver, or
by the adverse movement of stocks in the
city, or from the prick of some one or other
of the countless thorns which fringe the
daily pr.th even of those who walk most
securely the same demeanor toward some
influential friend which pleased him on
Saturday may not utiront him on Monday.
And tlrose forces which are ultimately
destined to prove too much for us may be
unconsciously set in motion as we babble
innocently our commonplaces under the
impression that we are making ourselves
very agreeable. If you do a man an im
portant service, or tread on his toes figura
tively or in the flesh, or rob him of his
sweetheart, or correct his facts in com
pany you may naturally expect that
things will "go agin" you hereafter if ever
he should have it in his power to control
their course, but you may fare just as ill
from some trifling sin of omission or com
mission over which conscience raises no
alarm. Our old friend the sword of
Damocles hangs permanently over our
heads. All the Year Round.
Trees Too Big to Handle.
The tideland spruce (Picea sitchursis),
found only in close proximity to the Pa
cific ocean, is a tree of noble growth and
can often be found measuring fifteen to
twenty feet in diameter. The noblest tree
of all, because the most generally valu
able, is the Douglas fir (Pseudotsoga Doug
lasiit. It grows witli a straight stem to
an average height of over 2(Xl and perhaps
250 feet, and even, as stated before, some
times attaining a height of 650 feet. A
tree of this kind measuring eighteen feet
in diameter where cut from the stump
and cut into 24-foot logs, of which
there would le twenty good ones, would
contain over 200,000 feet -of lumber (board
measure) if it could be brought to market,
which would weigh over 350 tons. This
size is not merchantable now !ecause of
the ilifik-tilty of handling it. San Fran

The Potato lias Gets There.
It is still unsolved the mystery of where
the potato bugs come from. It has only
been deepened by tho discovery of an

of ground and planted a few hills of pota

NOW IS THE TIME.
One Month's Treatment in Summer
Equal to Three in Winter.
The present warm weather is a boon to suffer
er- x om cs.tarrn. r or tnese reasons '
In the first place, there is less liability, at this
peri id of tbe year, to take cold tban at any other
time Consequently there is no irritating cause
of delay in cure or probability of a relapse.
Seconaly, tbe climate Is all that can be nesircn.
Thirdly, nature is kindly in summer and l-nds
its res' aid to the (Sorts or the pbisician. One
month's treatment now is worth three in wint -r.
Now i the time and tbe opportunity is list
what is desired for the worst esses. Do not let it
go, by thinking you will cot we (for with the
Dr-t rold, our trouble will return wor e th in ev
er), but place yourself nnder the treatment em
ployed at Scott Medical Institute and bave done
for you in the next two months what might not be
p Bdible to be effected until text summer.
