W.L GO OVER OLD RNUE
Charle J. Morse of LoweHl, Mass.,
Plans to Revisit the HIstosto
Santa Fe Trag.
'TIn going over the old Santa Fe
trail once more," said Charles J.
Morse, former mluniciplal commission.
er, as he made the rounds of his
friends preparatory to starting for his
visit to the West, the Lowell Courier
Mr. Alorse had desired to leave some
time ago and he looks forward to cov
ekjng the 'whole 1,400 miles of way be
tween St. Louis, Mo., and Santa Fe,
N. N .
It won't be covered now as it was
in 1872, when Mr. Morse, then a young
man went over tie fainmous southwest
ern trail on the back of a flie little
piece of horsellesh. Times have changed
and nowhere more than in. that section
of the country.
"In those days," he says, "Cody and
WIld 11111 had been scouring the plains
to the north and the West was pretty
wild. At that particular time Buffalo
Bill (Cody) and Wild 11111 were in the
eastern part of the country. Even
then tley had a wild west show.
"Eleven years ago I was In Denver,
and at that time I met just one man
whoin I hnd known in 1872. There
probbly isn't a soul nlong the old
trail now tint I %new then.
"Tin 1872 the Apnehes under old Ger
onino were raising rumpuses every
now and then. They were bad In
dians tleiik as lightning, nl they
had first rate leadership. Up around
Denver wo('i' the Utes, who were peace
ful, nnd farther over were the Hlopis,
who were also on good terms with the
whites. But in 1872 when a Wells
Fnrgo conch -went out, there were al
ways ien with shotguns guarding it,
nnd It wasn't anu infrequent thing to
have a holdup. I always felt that the
vigilantes of those days were as bad
men as were the robbers.
"I wnnt to cover that old trafl again.
If I ean't do anything else I can im
ngine things as they used to be and
compare them with things as they now
are. I was young then. I could stay
in tie saddle all day long. I loved a
good hit of horsellesh then and I've
never got over it. Of course, there
will -he cowboys nnd Indians and all
that, but they won't he the hard, tough
as-nnlis men they were in 1872. That
was i pretty rough country then."
Mr. Morse inten.Is to take about
three months for hLi trip. .lie is mak
ing It alone.
Long Life Signs.
It is said to be possible to distin
guish n long-lived person from one
who wvill not last so long at *sight.
Are you going to live long?
First, ncording to -vell-known au
thority, says London Answers, the*
primary condit.lons of longevity nre
that the lungs, heart, digestive organs
and brnins shou.ld all ho long. If such
ie the case the trunk will be long and
the limbs comparatively short.
A good ndienition of longevity, it is
said, is a long hand with short fingers,
which are not siumpy at the ends.
lluje, hazel or brown eyes, too, are
said to denote a long lifie. Another
sign-large, opon and free nostrils
which denli to largo lunl-s!

Deadly Enemy of Fruit Trees.
A familiar pest Is the tent caterpil
lar, which i~s very destructive .to all
fruit trees. The reddish birowna moth
h~ys its eggs in thie form of !ncomplete
belts on thie smaller branches, each
belt or packet consisting o'f hundreds
of tiny eggs glued together nind cov
ered wi th varnlshlikce substnce, says
tire A merienn Forestry Magazine.
These eggs hatch early in thi" spring
and the young enterpillars mnnke
their way' to the nearest fork, whenre
they spin a little tent of silk to pro

tent, feeding on the ieeaves nnml addling

the intestines, contracting and expanding in their normal way,
to squceze the food waste along so that it passes naturally out
of the system.
Nujol thus prevents constipation because it helps Nature main
