Li . .?! 1 S ' r I a ' U. H. Department of Agriculture Ibbu,1V) Booklet Telling of the Experiments Performed W .The Forest Service Washington, D. C, Juno 21 "Only 30 per cent of the wpod In a forest now gets Into tho form of seasoned, unplaned lumber. Of this an additional 10 to 25 per cent Is lost In the process of manufacture. In oxtrome cases as little as three per cent of tho -wood In the forest may reach the finished product." This statement is made in a booklet Just issued by tho Department of Agriculture, entitled Forest Pro ducts Laboratory, describing the work and alms of the experimental laboratory maintained by the For est 'Service in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin at Madi son, Wis. Tho booklet outlines how, thru investigation and experiment, the laboratory is devising and broad casting practical commercial meth ods by which this enormous waste of the country's timber supply can bo reduced. By reducing this waste, it Is pointed outy the'llfo of our present forests will bo pro longed and the problem; of growing now forosts mado simpler, because by preventing tho waste of timber less timber will have to be grown. Among the various methods studied at tho laboratory for de creasing wasto of forest products is tho treatment of woods to preser vatives, resisting decay Through such treatment an annual saving of 1 1-2 billion board feet is estimated to bo possible In the case of rail road ties alone, and tho preserva tion of other classes of timber would in tho aggregate greatly relieve tho drain on our forests. The Forost Products Laboratory is a government Institution; its ad vice and suggestions are to be had for tho asking. It presents, ac cording to the booklet, an oppor tunity for many manufacturers, wood users and timber growers to supplement tho information ob tained by experlonco and hard knocks with technical data ob talned thru scientific research. .

That we place too high u value on a great variety of food as necessary to nealth and good digestion Is the opin ion of Stcfnusson, the eminent ex plorer, who lectures nt Chautauqua on the second night, based on his experi ence In the Arctic, and tho experience of those who Here with him on his his toric expeditions. ' "I lived on fish, both raw and cooked, for a whole year, and without salt," Mr. Stefnustion says, "and weighed ten pounds more at the end of the yeur than at the beginning. I was not troubled with Indigestion, or any other bad effects. In fact, I can Kay that I never felt better In my life. Taking up any new system of diet Is largely a psychological matter," said .Mr. 8tefnnsMn. "Ve have prejudices which It Is a difficult matter to over come. If the animals that arc used for food were placed In ono group and those that nni not considered good for food were placed In another group, and a thoroughly unbiased pel-son were asked for an opinion, he would say there Is little or no difference between, them." HUBBY AT THE C00KST0VE Some Excellent Reasons Advanced Why Head of the House Should Know How to Prepare Food. Cooking has becu added to the cur riculum of male students at Pennsyl vania State college. Cooking Is some thing that all men should know some thing about. Some men should know all about It Particularly should married men have the necessary knowledge so that In the pinch they can escallop a pan of potatoes or stir up a mess ot fluffy biscuits. There Is no telling when the good wife may b absent from home at meal time. As. time goes on the legitimate rea sons tor this are growing. And what Is more pleasing to the. av erage wife than to return from the bridge varty or the polling place, a. tritlu late, perhaps, and worried for fear that she'll not be able to have dinner on the dot what Is more pleas ing than to be greeted at the door by the man ot the house, all uniformed up In a long overall apron, a dab of flour on his beaming countenance, stir ring for dear life at a bowl of embryo drop biscuits And the teakettle steaming lta heart out!

HJl. by McClurt Newspaper Syndicate ) "Seel Seel .Monsieur, .10,000 francs for me; njon Dleu, do you hear, for met The little Marie will shed no more tears, no more shall she hunger, no more shall she stand at the wns-h tub till she drops, with the little ones screaming around her. Yes, monsieur! the Grand Prix lottery. I took the money she had put aside for food, and she, the little Marie, thought It lost. Ahl how she cried, the petite. But no more shall she weep. The doctor said she must have rest, good food, change of air, or she will die. So I took the money nnd bought a share In a lottery ticket, nnd see what fortune Is mine I Fifty thousand francs 1" The little mat. rushed nbout Im parting his good news to all and sundry, for everyone was willing to listen to his tale of good luck, most of them with envy, but some well pleased that It was great. For Jean Berrler was one of the unfortunates with a sick, n rising wife, who had struggled and slaveJTto put bread Into the mouths of her husband nnd three small children ever since he. Jean, fell from the scaffolding of a building on which he was working and .broke his leg. six montlM ago struggled and worked till the little body had suc cumbed -to the strain, and for weeks she had lain without the strength to craw" across the floor to the now empty pantry. And to crown her misfortune, the little hoard of francs she hnd saved against such a time hnd mysteriously disappeared. No bread had passed her lips for two das now, and the little ones were whimpering with cold and hunger, while Jean where was he? Had anything happened to him? Never before hnd he left for so longl And she was t.red, oh, so 'tired of waiting for him. It was getting dark and ccjd so cold! She would sleep nnd forget the cold. There was a stumbling noise as of a drunken man coming up the stairs, then a rush of stronger, swifter foot steps, nnd the crippled Jenn burst Into the room, Intoxicated wth Joy, fol lowed by rejoicing nsd sympathetic neighbors and even strangers, brought by the little man's enthusiasm. "Tlens! little one! Hero are silks and sntlns, horses nnd cnrrluges, ser vants and mansions, for you! What! nsleep, little" one?" nnd In spite of his elntlon he tiptoed across the room to the pale, still figure on- the rude couch so 'still one could almow fnncy ah. no! not that! Merciful heavens, not that! . . . Dropped unheeded was the bag ol gold. Forgotten nil the Joy of riches Silent the rejoicing neighbors for the little Marie had passed to the House kof Many Mansions, through the Gates of Jasper the Streets of Gold. Awestruck and abashed the crowd passed slowly from the room, leavlnft the stricken husband three starving, whimpering children plteously crying for Just a crut of bread and n floor strewn with glittering gold coins. FIRST PLAYED IN IRELAND Croquet Made Its Way From That Country to Ennland, and From Thence to America. The first treatise on croquet that came to our little vlllago was by Mayne Reld. The book was first pub llshed In London In 1803; thPre was a New York edition In 18G5 ; a Boston edition In 1800. Some of the boys, disdaining the mallets on sale, had them made of fancy but heavy woods The first stakes were tall, thick, with gorgeously colorca rings to match the balls. The game encouraged fllrtatlou among thfc older players. Young worn en were coquettish In putting a foot on the hall and saw to It that they were handsomely shod. Was croquet a development of the Dutch game, closh, or did It pass from Brittany Into Ireland? It certainly was played In Ireland before It wai popu lar In England, writes Philip Hale In the Boston Herald. It has been stated that It was played near Dublin under this name In 1834-5. The game nnd name were Introduced Into England In 1852. In 1853 n writer In Field said croquet came Into the north of Ireland some twelvo years before from a French convent. Trollopefs Mr. Crosble played croquet in 18tV2. In 1877 an ivory turner of London, one Dickson, remembered having made a set of croquet Implements for Ireland forty years before. The game went out of fashion In the country when lawn tennis became the rage. The men that persisted in cro quet were suspected of being passion ately addicted to soda lemonade. There was at least a revival, with grand tournaments and strutting champions.
