SCOUT'S IDEA OF MARRIAGE.

Not a woman crosses the threshold of his cozy home. "It makes no difference who or what the woman is; she wouldn't get inside of this house,"he says."Even wom en peddlers create a different atmos phere when they only knock at the door. "Marry? Well, I should say not. You don't know what that word means. Why, look at all of the men in this country who have fastened them selves to women whom they professed to love, and now want to get as far away from femininity as they can. I wouldn't marry the best woman that ever lived. I tell you, they are trou ble brewers; they always have been and always will be. "I had lots of girl friends when I was a young fellow, but when there was any chasing to be done they were the ones who did it. I never allowed myself to become infatuated with a girl, as I knew it would be my end." REVENGE. c The Professor—l've been a vege tarian all my life; from now on I'll eat nothing but beef! INTOLERABLE ITCHING. Fearful Eczema All Over Baby's Face —Professional Treatment Failed. A Perfect Cure by Cuticura. "When my little girl was six months old I noticed small red spots on her right cheek. They grew so large that I sent for the doctor but, instead of helping the eruption, his ointment 6eemed to make it worse. Then 1 went to a second doctor who said It was eczema. He also gave me an oint ment which did not help either. The disease spread all over the face and the eyes began to swell. The Itching grew intolerable and it was a terrible sight to see. I consulted doctors for months, but they were unable to cure the baby. I paid out from S2O to S3O without relief. One evening I began to use the Cuticura Remedies. The next morning the baby's face was all white instead of red. T , continued until the eczema entirely disappeared. Mrs. P. E. Gumbin, Sheldon, la, July 13,*08." Potior Drug & C'hem.

Warner, Windsor. Conn FIRE IS THE GREATEST FOE OF OUR WOODLANDS Often Kindled t>y Sparks from Railroad Locomotive and t>y Settlers and Farmers In Clearing Land or Burning Brush. Of all the foes which attack the woodlands of North America no other is so terrible as fire. Forest fires spring from many different causes. They are often kindled along rail roads by sparks from the locorno tiveß. Carelessness is responsible for many fires. Settlers and farmers clearing land or burning grass and brush oftens allow the fire to escape into the woods. Some one may drop a half-burned match or the glowing tobacco of a pipe or cigar, or a hunter or prospector may neglect to extin guish his camp fire, or may build it whero it will burrow into the thick dull far beyond his reach, to smolder for days, or weeks, and perhaps to break out as a destructive Are long after ho is gone. Many fires are set for malice or revenge, and the forest Is often burned over by huckleberry pickers to increase the next season's growth of berries, or by the owners Trunk Damaged by Fire. of cattle or sheep to make better pas ture for their herds. There is danger from forest fires in the dry portions of the spring and summer, but those which do most harm usually occur in the fall. At whatever time of the year they ap pear, their destructive power depends very much on the wind. They cannot Forest After Being Swept by Fire. travel against it except when burning up hill, and not even then if the wind is strong. The wind may give them strength and speed by driving them swiftly through unburned, inflammable forests, or it lhay extinguish the fierc est fire in a time by turning it back over its path, where is nothing left to burn. In fighting forest fires the wind is always the first thing to con sider, and its direction must be care- FARMER REGARDS" WORK AS SCIENCE Now Sends Sons and Daughters to the Best of Colleges. Never in the history of agriculture has there been such a forward move men on the part of the farmer and for the farmer on the part of state and nation, as is noted at the present time. Prosperity for the last decade has been the constant companion of the man who clothes and feeds the nation. All this good fortune that has fallen to the cause of agriculture has not come unmerited. Progress has been made all along the line in solv ing the various problems dealing with the tillage of the soil and the produc tion of bountiful crops. Educationally, the farmers are not so far behind their city cousins as one would naturally think, and if we take proportionate numbers into considera tion, the farmers are ahead. The blessings of modern civilization and the advantage of up-to-date methods and labor-saving conveniences are en- Joyed almost as generally by the < ountry folk as by those living in the city. It seems almost needless repetition to cite how, through the agency of the telephone, rural free delivery and in terurban electric railway the former isolation of the farmer from the city has disappeared. All these modern developments have their influence on CAMERON COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY, JULY 15, 1909 fully watched. A sudden change of wind may check a fire, or may turn it off in a new direction and perhaps threaten the lives of the men at work by driving it suddenly down upon them. When all the conditions are favor able, forest fires sometimes reach gigantic proportions. A few such fires have attained historic import ance. One of these is the Miramichl fire of 1825. It began its greatest destruction about one o'clock in the afternoon of October 7 of that year, at a place about sixty miles above the town of Newcastle, on the Miramichl river, in New Brunswick. Before ten o'clock at night it was 20 miles below Newcastle. In nine hours it had de stroyed a belt of forest 80 miles long and 25 miles wide. Over more than 2,500,000 acres almost every living thing was killed. The Peshtigo fire of October, 1871, I was still more severe than the .Miramichi. It covered an area of over 2,000 square miles in Wisconsin, and involved a loss, in timber and other property, of many millions of dollars. Between 1,200 and 1,500 per sons perished. Including nearly half the population of l'eshtigo. The most destructive fire of more recent years was that which started near Hinckley, Minn., September 1, 1894. While the area burned over was less than in some other great fires, the loss of life and property was very heavy. Ifinckley and six other towns were destroyed, about 500 lives were lost, more than 2,000 persons were left destitute, and the estimated loss in property of vari ous kinds was $25,000,000. Except for the heroic conduct of locomotive engineers and other railroad men the loss of life would have been far greater. The means of fighting forest fires are not everywhere the same, for they burn in many different ways; but in every case the best time to fight a fire is at the beginning, before it has had time to spread. A delay of even a very few minutes may per mit a lire that at first could easily have been extinguished to gather headway and get altogether beyond control. When there is but a thin covering of leaves and other waste on the ground a fire usually cannot burn very hotly or move with much speed. The fires in most hardwood forests are of this kind. They seldom kill large trees, but they destroy seedlings and saplings and kill the bark of older trees in places near the ground. The hollows at the foot of old chest nuts and other large trees are often the results of these fires, which occur again and again, and so enlarge the wounds instead of allowing them to heal. | rural commuintles for the better, j Each year the number of farmers' sons and daughters attending our higher institutions of learning Is growing larger. Educational statis tics, we are told, disclose that the pro portion of farm-reared students found in the colleges and universities Is larger than that of students coming from other walks of life, either from the wealthy or working classes. There is a very good reason for the presence of the farmer's son atid daughter in the halls of learning. Ag ricultural education has become the favorite theme with the wide-awake farmer and his family, and as a result those institutions are being patronized almost to overflowing by students eager to make farming their life work. New conditions must be met in our progressive age, such as the remarkable increase of our population and an ever-increasing demand for farm products at high prices; the rush of so many country people to live in the city, impelled by the erroneous thought that farm life is debasing, and that urban existence is more at tractive than the monotony of the farm. Feed for Pigs. I have been forced to depend upon my farm for my pork and have learned that plenty of rutabaga tur nips, clover and one bag of corn will put a hog through the winter; then put to pasture till fall. It makes good pork and at a low price. There is money in it and no ne»j ta depend upon the west for pork. WHEN YOUR BACK ACHES It Is a Warning That the Kidneys Ars Sick and Need Help.
