SUITABLE FOR HUMAN POOD Nourishing Plants and Even Intact? Capable of Sustaining Life, at a Pinch. According to some reports great in genuity in the use of scientific knowl edge in extracting food values from unusual sources ia being employed, .the Baltimore Star states. Thero are many articles good for human food and wholesome food at that, which un der ordinary conditions aro not drawn upon at all. There are the angle worm, the grasshopper and fully a score of plants not ordinarily used as food which, properly prepared, constitute nourishing foods. It is perhaps only tho most desperate and resolute sort of appetite that would stand for the earth worm, but they have been eaten even by highly civilized people and when properly prepared are said to ba not eo bad. Why should we be squeam ish about the angle worm when we eat the oyster, stomach, lungs and ev erything but the shell? As to grasshoppers they were an an cient delicacy and are yet DO regarded by many races who know what's what In tho way of good tilings to eat. All tho grasses that are eaten by animals have nourishing juices. Clover and green timothy possess a higher food quality than cabbage or potatoea. Belled to tenderness they would pre vent starvation There have been famine periods when human beings have been obliged to eat field grasses end wild plant root3. REALLY WAS NO MYSTERY Scorning Puzzle of Two Sunsets In Two Minutes Easily Explained After a Little Thought. A rambler was reading ?n Incident that had been no part of his planning for that particular trip: "It was Uko one of those moments the neurasthenic knows when ho doubts the testimony of his senses and trembles with the fear that at last bis mind ls giving "way. Hut the twain behind mc exclaimed together at the phenomenon, and I breathed easily once more. "Leaving Tarrytown toward five o'clock on a perfect afternoon, I set tled back comfortably to enjoy the setting of tho sun as it traveled with what seemed undue haste toward a high peak of the Palisades. Then, as if at a signal, it dropped behind the peak, leaving a dull brazen trail of its glory. I shut my eyes, a little disap pointed at so hurried a closing of one of those days when lt seems good to be alive. "As the train jolted out of Grey stone I blinked and beheld in upset ting wonderment the sun again going down, Cn is timo goldenly, slowly, with a fitting majesty of - motion. Lower and still lower it sank, until there was visible only a lovely field of many toned vamber.' "But two sunsets ?" "Tile difference in altitude of the ella towers at various points is tho explanation." Ever Hit- Thumb With a Hammer? Here is a little device which you can make ht home by which the tiniest tack can bb held without possibility ot injury to the fingers. Take a strip of j tia about three-quarters of an inch wide and about six or seven inches long. Shape it with a email Blot iu one end. Then double it, bending at the mid dle. When ready to insert the nail, pat it Into tbe slot, which will hold it by its head. This gives a kind of handle by means of which you can hold the nail perfectly upright while you blt lt witb the hammer. Of course the holder must be pulled away before the nail or tack has gone all the way into tho wood. If you have not tho tin at hand drong cardboard will serve the purpose. Try.this little device just once and I am sure you will feel amply repaid for your trouble in making it, ss it will prevent many a bruised finger.-Woman's Home Companion. A Short Memory. Uncle Jed was a trifle slack about quitting the bottom when the levee broke, and had to take to a tree. Morn ing came, and there was sixty feet of Mississippi flood water between bim and shore. The preacher happened along on the high ground and saw Jed, but thero wasn't any boat. Moreover, Jed's suspicion that there were alli gators about was well founded. Tbe preacher besought Jed to swim, but in vain. Finally ho called out: "Jed, have faith.. Remember how Jonah was cared for in the whola and saved after three days." Jed spoke earnestly. "Tss, sub, 1 remember. I oin' deny In' nuthln' 'bout Jonah, 'causa I wa'n't nigh nm. But dbi year alligator, he aln' no whale; suh. Alligator, he eat a nigger an' go off an' sleep a week, sur, an' dlsremember ail 'bout dat nig ger inside um!" . Hie Idea. Those angelic-looking little boys, with golden curls, are usually Just like other boys; a fact often overlooked by female relatives and other adoring la dles. One ot this cherubic brand ot small boy came back from school the other day rather depressed Decease he had no nickname. "I spoke to the teacher about lt," ho vouchsafed, his big eyes opened wide, a mournful look about hts angelia mouth. "I told her some nicknames that I'd like." "And what were the names?" in quired ft rapturous maldon aunt "Bunco Bili or The Slugger," replied the angelic one. MORE THAN HE COULD STAND Colored Man Explain? Why the Gam* | of Seven-Up Had 8uch Disastrous Consciences. From a genial game of seven-up with Duck, Luke had been holed to an swer to a charge of assault and bat tery. Exhibit 1, being Buck's nose, seemed evidence enough to prove that mayhem hod taken placo after the last hand. But when the verdict was pronounced, tho prisoner's aggrieved air seemed to indicate au opinion that his lawyer had not done all that could have been done in his interest. This impression was confirmed when the judge asked him if ho hud aught to say in his own defense, and Dune stood up. "Yas, sub, I'se got o passel to say. Mister Jedge, I ast yu, is yu ever played seb'n-up?" "That hasn't anything to do with the case. Duke," the judge interposed. "Wy, Mister Jedge, 'Bcusin' me, den yu ain't understan* diB yer case. See byer, Mister Jedge, dat Buck was fo* an' I was six, an' he begged me-yu say yi. ain't played seb'n-up ?" "Well." interrupted the Judge impa tiently, "go on!" "YaB, suh!

TREES THAT WILL BE MISSED Many Needed for Medicine Have Been Cut Down and Are Not Being Replanted. ~"he woodman's ax has been clear ing our forests so rapidly us to work great injury to the farming interests of tho country and to the wealth of tho nation. The trees BO necessary to tho retention of moisture for the Boll and a supply for the rivers have been ruthlessly cut down. Tho trees from which medicine are derived are rapidly disappearing with the rest. Tho wild cherry, besides hav ing the ax as an enemy, hna been cut down by the tiny teeth of insects. Its bark contains hydrocyanic acid, and ?3 a popular tonic. The witch hazel, known as a remedy by tho Indians, is being destroyed. The bark of tho slippery elm tree ls won derfully healing to wounds and in flammations. The butternut as a mild cathartic, tho white ash as on astr'ngent, the white pine and spruce for the respiratory organs, the tama rack, the white willow and the birch as tonics, and the other trees with health-giving properties are rapidly fading away.-The Christian Herald. Habit Will Grow Upon You. Conquer tho habit of worrying if you want to be happy in this world. Worry will grow upon you, becoming a little worse doy ofter doy until it holds you in such on unrelenting grip that you are a veritable slave to its dictates. Shake off fear, fill your mind with happy thoughts, look into tho future unafraid, and be thankful for the blessings of the present. No matter bow bad your condition you can always find something te be thankful for. If you ore poor you may have health, a blessing many of the rich would bo willing to pay for dear ly. If you are ill you may at least be happy in the tender ministrations of friends and relatives around ydu. Look at any condition for the good there is in lt, look for tho best, do your best, and you will have no causo to worry. To Be' Happy In One's Work. "The principal of the New Behool believes that appropriate activity com stltutea the highest form of human pleasure. He discourages tho 'keep ing in' of dilatory pupils, for the rea son that such a poUey tends to estab lish a mistaken attitude toward work. Ruskin says 'that God blended every man o be happy In his work;' and he would likely apply that sentiment with even greater emphasis to the child. If we accept thin for our creed, we must agree that a ftc more fitting and effective form of 'punishment' is to deny the child the privilege of be ing active."-Exchange. Bird? 8lng With Children. At nursling infant schools, South ampton, England, a pair of robins have built their nest in tho beams two years in succession.
