Denver. A burning cigarette butt
beside a woods-road in northern Maine
may mean much to the business man
agement of the Texas Dally Bugle.
Sounds like a Joke, but is it? The
Daily Bugle, say specialists of the
forest service. United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, represents the
newspaper industry dependent on for
ests for its existence ; the smoldering
cirgarette portrays forest fires caused
by human carelessness. Newpaper is
made from wood. Fires destroy and
lessen the supply of raw material with
a resultant increase in the price of pa
per stock. Hence, the relation between
the cigarette butt in Maine and the
newspaper in Texas.
This is the day and age of news
papers. Newsprint is a 100 per cent
forest product, but few persons see
their next year's supply of newspapers
in a grove of trees. They do not con
nect the passing of the penny paper
with the burning of the forests.
With only fifty million cords of
spruce left in the regions of centrali
zation of the pulp and paper Industry
and about five and a half million cords
ground' Into pulp every year, the prob
lem is simpler than "How old is Ann?'
In spite of everything, within the
next ten years, the pulp mills will be
hard put to secure wood to keep their
mills and machinery busy, if .' And
that is where we all come In. "If"
we do not burn up any of the present
supply, it will last that long. In this
national forest district, 87 per cent, of
the forest fires are caused by man's
carelessness bonfires, camp fires left
burning, cigar and cigarette butts, hot
pipe ashes, engine sparks, etc.

WHEN all' the nuts were fixed to
suit Grandpa Fox he put them
away and brought out some very tine,
big radishes, which he carefully
scooped out after cutting them in half.
These he also filled with red pep
per and glued together, touching the
cut place with a bit of paint to cover
the mark.
When he had a good pile of thera
finished he looked at his work with a
broad smile on his face and carried
them in a pan to the pantry wjndow,
where it was nice and cool, so they
would not wither.
The next morning he was up long
before the sun peeped through the

Grandpa took his basket of nuts and
poured them on the ground near his
house back of a bush, as if he had hid
den them there.
The radishes he put in a basket and
placed it under a tree and dropped his
coat beside It so it would look as If he
had Just been In the garden working.
Then he sat down in the house by
the window with a stick in his hand
and waited.
He did not have to wait long for

that led past the house where Grand

was quicker than the others, ran Into
Grandpa's yard.
He spied the nuts and back lie went
as quick as a flash and told the news
to the others.
Tommle Rabbit did not care very
much for the nuts, but he ran with

Grandpa Fox knew that was all that
was needed to make them carry off the
nuts and radishes, so he pounded and
called until they were out of sight.
"Stolen sweets are always the
sweetest," he said. "That may be true
in some cases, but I'll wager my pipe
those youngsters will find out that is
not a true saying always.".
And they did, for Billy Squirrel did
not bother Grandpa Fox any more.
Such sneezing was never heard in the
woods before, even the chicken with
the whooping cough did not sneeze
any harder, though they all found
their heads and tails were safe when
it was over.
Their mouths and throats were

was given to the first Christian king
of England. The famous bishop of
Prague, who was martyred near Dant

Prussians in 997, was called Adel

Italy received it and straightway
changed it to Alberto. It is from this
latter that the feminine . forms. Al

The husband of the late Queen Vic

brought both the masculine and fem

deed, it has since been accepted as a
national name.
But, 'like all names which have a
masculine and feminine equivalent,
Alberta has no really individual ex

masculine name with a feminine

word "expect" in the following sen

probable or certain ; to await, to feel
assured of something before it occurs ;
to anticipate;" as, "I expect to go to

we look forward to an event with in

As the Boy Explained It, the Finding
of Horse Was Really Quite
Simple Matter.
Speaking of the development, of the
story-telling talent in youth, Richard
Bennett, the 'actor. Is fond of relating
this incident :
Some years ago a prominent citizen
of a town lost a horse.- It was not
much of a horse. In fact, it was blind
In one eye and spavined. But,-perhaps
as a relic, Bennett says, the
prominent citizen wanted the horse.
So he advertised, offering $5 reward
for its return. The town half-wit, a
boy of nineteen, with a harelip, came
one afternoon leading the horse, with
a strap about the size of a shoestring,
to the prominent citizen's door. The
horse's owner was pleased.
"Now," said he kindly, scenting a
good narrative and perhaps an ad
venture, "now; my boy, here's your
$5; and Til give you another $5 if
you'll tell me Just how you found my

philosophically. '

he allowed the first cold gust of wind
to rush past him, then put his head

Below he saw a young lady.
"What can I do for you, miss?" he
inquired. "Is anyone dying?"
