Some ten days ago we received and published a 3etter from a citizen referring- to a movement among tha Boy Scouts to include among their activities, the conservation of bird life In Arizona. Tha writer urged the Boy Scouts to come into his neighborhood and solicit pledges of membership In a league for bird conservation. , Since then The Republican has received many letters from people, referring to this letter and ask ing for further information regarding bird conserva tion to be directed by the Boy Scouts. I We mention this now only to show that in this and many other activities the interest of boys may be enlisted by such an encouragement of the present Boy Scouts movement in Phoenix as it de serves. Another is the "good turn, every boy un dertaking during each day to do some one a good turn. ' I We have found the boys not merely content with doing a good turn when the need of it is apparent to them, but we have seen them going out of their way to hunt for a good turn to be done. It may be a small good turn, some assistance to an aged or disabled person, some relief for a sick or wounded animal; some help administered in hundreds of ways. j What a community this would be if we had all of thi thousands of boys in Phoenix enlisted In a move ment each to do at least one good turn a day! How many thousands of good turns would then be done! How many rough places would be made smoother! . i We can thinks of no higher opportunity Phoenix has had for self improvement than in this chance to forward the Boy Scout movement. s Mark Twain This is the birthday of Mark Twain. He has been dead eleven years, but there is perhaps no other American writer who is so likely to live forever. Even though the , Euglish language should perish Mark Twain would survive in a dozen other languages. '; ' , Humorists "are usually short lived, and Mark Twain, was a humorist. . But humorists usually write for a period; and they pass with the period. There have been a few notable exceptions among whom is Dickens. Though his characters are those of a past age and through the customs he caricatured are gone, he went below the surface and described human na ture that never changes. So he was a philosopher as well as a humorist. Mark Twain too was a philoso pher and humorist. Neither spread sunshine before us constantly.. They often led us into deep shadows. There is noth ing more pathetic than Twain's description of the tragedy of his brother's death in "Life On the Mis sissippi., On the next page the sunshine bursts out again. We have seen only one other such descrip tion by a writer of the death of a loved one and that was William Allen White's recent story ot the death his daughter in a horseback accident. This peculiarity of Twain is observed by W. D. llo wells: I "So ar as I know Mr. Clemens is the first writer to tgse In extended writing the fashion we all use in thinking, and to set down the thing that comes into his mind without fear or favor of the thing that went Lfore or the thing that may be about to follow." But there was no carelessness about this appar ently spontaneous artlessness and Professor Mat thews cautions us, "His colloqual ease should not hide from us his mastery of all the devices of rhetoric." I In the early part of Mr. Clemens' career there vfere stodgy souls who saw In him nothing but the buffoon, as there are today etodgy souls who yearn only to heaviness and gloom. But they are estopped from criticism, by the judgments which have been given in Mark Twain's favor by the highest courts of letters. In the third volume of "The Cambridge History of .American Literature," a book which has been hailed as a great history of American literature and which stands for all that is finest in American criti cism, Mark Twain is given the place of honor. It describes the permanent place which the great hu morist has made for himself not only in the hearts ft the people but in the estimation of the most criti cal and scholarly men of America. : It is more than a coincidence that the same liter ary group of which Howells was a member, that first recognized the genius of Mark Twain, a little later rescued James Whitcomb Riley from the howling mob of the small "high brow" worshippers of Brown ing, and placed him upon a - pedestal in Tremont Temple. i Twin's first academic recognition came from Tale university which made him a master of arts in 18S8 and doctor of letters in 1301. But he attained his crowning academic glory In 1907 when the Univers ity of Oxford called him across the sea, robed him in scarlet and made him doctor of literature. The Cambridge History says of him: )' "He is a fulfilled promise of American life. He proves the virtues of the land and the society in w hich he was born and fostered. He incarnates the spirit of an epoch of American history when the nation, territorially and sph-itually enlarged, entered lustily upon new adventures. In the retrospect he looms for us with Whitman and Lincoln, recognizably his coun trymen, out of the shadows of the Civil War, an un mistakable native son of an eager, westward-moving people unconventional, self-reliant, mirthful, profane, realistic, cynical, boisterous, popular, tender hearted, touched with chivalry, and permeated to the marrow of his bones with the sentiment of demo cratic society and with loyalty to American institutions." A "Party' We may gather some notion of the freedom and ease of the movie people from Mr. Arbuckle'a rela- . tion of his party at the Hotel St Francis, San Fran cisco. The party it is disclosed assumed proportions which placed it beyond the control of the host, who had arranged for the entertainment of but two guests, himself and a Miss Taube, Then unbidden guests, strangers began to arrive la large numbers to avail themselves of Mr. Arbuckle's hospitality movie actresses, traveling salesmen drawn by some magnet to the twelfth, or was it the thirteenth floor of tha St Francis? How they were garbed on their arrival Is not stated by Mr. Arbuckle, but later it appears from Mr. Arbuckle's narration some of the ladies were clad in pajamas and Mr. Arbuckle himself at one stage of the festivities was arrayed in b. v. d.'a and a bath robe. It was perhaps in such unconventional cloth ing that his unexpected guests surprised him. There were bottles of whisky, gin and cognao standing about, many of them, enough it appears to souse tha large uninvited throng though the liquid re freshments, according to Mr. Arbuckle had been thoughtfully prepared by Mr. Fishback only for the fat comedian and his one expected guest. What might have been the effect upon them of their potations but for the timely and succoring arrival of the unex pected legion It Is painful to contemplate. "Stewed." "piffljcated" and similar expressions are wholly in adequate. We may picture the arrival at last of the only guest for whom this entertainment had been arranged, her well-bred evincing of surprise, the slight lifting of her carefully plucked eyebrows as she surveyed languidly, the assembled multitude and Inquired casually, "Who are these people?" Then with that elegance of diction which Mr. Arbuckle in his capacity of saloon swamper had ac quired, he replied, "Search me," whereupon Miss Taube turned away with the statement that she would "call back" and went away doubtless with the purpose of giving Mr. 'Arbuckle. If he could secure a little privacy, opportunity to array himself in a manner to receive a lady fittingly. After his departure it appears that Mr. Arbuckle threw hospitality to the winds. He withdrew to hl bedroom with the intention of putting on some clothe, Ing that would bear the inspection of the police. He found his efforts somewhat handicapped. Ingress to his bathroom was with difficulty, since a lady lay sprawled across the floor just within the door which opened inward. Other ladies came hammering at his door before he had time to exchange his bath robe for coat and trousers. Tet he need not have been embarrassed. for, clad only in pajamas, they had no edge on him. It was such a scene as could have presented itself only in a slap dash movie. There was the "location." There was only wanting a camera man to "shoot." Eut was it more real than a movie scene? That i for a Jury to decide. And Why Not? Meeting the demand of the more advanced labor leaders, that labor shall be repitsented in the coun cils of capital the president of the American Bond and Mortgage company of New York, suggests 're- ciprocity, that capital or Industry shall be given rep resentation in labor circles. Already in many concerns labor is given representa tion in industry and the results are said to be satis factory, because of the better understanding labor thus gains of the problems of industry. Perhaps In dustry and capital would profit by a better under standing of the problems of labor. But labor has rather conspisuously excluded employers from its councils. . The president of the bond and mortgage com pany says of his proposition: "It might have a decidedly salutary effect Many wild statements, I am informed, are made at union meetings concerning the employers, and are believed largely because they are not controverted on the spot If there were a representative of the employ ers present at such meetings, who was fully informed regarding the business, these statements could be shown to be incorrect and much misunderstanding could thus be averted. Many strikes, I really believe, could be avoided, if there were proper understanding of actual conditions by the workers, and the plan I suggest would tend toward bringing about such an understanding." On the other hand, industry excluded from the councils of labor, learns of the attitude of labor, only from labor leaders, to whose interest it is to keep employers in the dark. Tbey choose to preserve the positions of go-betwen and. negotiator. They frequently in cases of disputes which they foment, if they do not Institute them, misrepresent the hostile attitude of labor or magnify the degree of hostility. If representatives of employers could be present in those councils they could better gauge the situa tions which present themselves and many costly strikes could be avoided. Many a grievance could be adjusted without naming to blows. WON'T DIE AND LEAVE WORK There are many reasons for death. But it is a .remarkable thing that during the silkworm rearing time in the silk districts, even the sickest people, contrary to all expectation, do not die. The rate of death among old people and invalids in the silk re gions during the busiest season is very low indeed. What is the reason? Well, most of these people unconsciously think, "Well, if I die now, everyone will be very much upset because I do cot finish my work, and if I die, I too will be very much upset in the other world because no one here will have time to give me a good funeral, and to see that I am prop erly and comfortably buried. So I guess I bad better live just a bit longer." And remarkable to relate, they go on living. The will to live makes them bear the ills of living and they do not die during the growing season. But after the transfer of the matured silkworms to to the cocoon beds, for ten days there are people dying everywhere. That is strange, too. But really it is because the spirit no longer holds them up. The excitement is over, and with rest comes death; the time of anxiety is over and the strain is loosened, and with the loosening comes the end of life. In the silk regions there are not many deaths in either the extremely hot or the extremely cold times. But just after the silkworms are transferred to the cocoon beds, after the strenuous days of rearing them from the egg are over, then they die like flies in winter. It is all a matter of spirit, or as some would call it, "mind." Japan Advertiser. ORDERS Salesman Shirt, sir? Will you have a soft or stiff front? 1 Customer Soft, I think.

A large part of the state -of Vermont is now a great Christmas tree farm, accord ing to the American Forestry asso ciation, and one which is being bad ly overworked. This state furnishes annually about 6,000,000 trees for decorative purposes. These trees are by far the most profitable crop which many hill sections of the state can grow, but unless the cutting is better regulated, the association says, the crop will be exhausted. Reforesta tion of large areas and better fire protection are also needed. The association gives us a most Interesting account of all the ever green plants which suddenly invade the cities about this time of the year. Christmas trees, it says, are mostly either firs or spruces. The balsam fir is unquestionably the best known and most widely distributed of our native firs. It is one of the most beautiful evergreen trees native to North America. It frequents bogs, swamps and other wet places. The Balsam fir is a tree which satisfies many human wants, but the greatest of all its gifts is the Christmas tree. As a Christmas tree it has no su perior. The European fir, so common throughout many parts of continental Europe, hag many characteristics in common with our balsam fir. It, too, has been used for centuries as a Christmas tree. Careful examination of the trunk of the balsam will reveal a large number of little blisterlike sacs of balsam. . If one takes a knife and punctures them the balsam will flow freely. This balsam when refined is used in our scientific laboratories to attach cover glasses to microscopic slides. Balsam is regarded as an ex cellent medicine in the treatment ot throat and pulmonary troubles. Many mountaineers collect the bal sam from the blisters on the trees and then store it away for family use. It is a common practice in the north woods to collect large quantities of balsam leaves and use them in fill ing pillows and cushions, for the leaves when dried emit a very frag rant balsam odor. The wood is soft does not contain resin passages and ranges in color from white to brown. It weighs about 24 pounds per cubic foot and is used extensively in the manufacture of paper pulp," crates and packing boxes. There are 20 different kinds of spruce trees in the world. All of them are beautiful evergreen trees. They occur in every country in the northern hemisphere. Eight of them are native to North America, three being found in the eastern part ana five in the western part of the coun try. What Hollv la The Christmas holly can readily be recognized at all seasons of the year by its deep green leaves, which are armed with spines along the margin. The leaves are bright and they often reflect light as mirrors. The small bricht red berries are -also a helpful mean of identification in fall and winter. An old manuscript in the Rritish museum states that the "holy tiath herva as red as any rose." De vout people regard the leaves of the holly as a symuoi vi me cau crown of thorns. The holly wreath is attractive and popular, but unfortunatel;' tne mem nda of collecting the branches are very destructive. In many instances the tons of the trees are cut out com pletely. leaving nothing but an erect hare trunk. We need the holly sprig for decorative purposes at Christmas, the American Forestry association says, but in order that a future sup ply may be insured, special steps must be taken at once to regulate the cutting in such a way that all the existing trees may continue to produce annually an abundant supply of thriftv branchlets. The American holly, also called Christmas holly, and the closely re lated European holly, are linked in separably with our Christmas tradi tions. Many people ar- familiar with the holly leaves and berries, but few of thejn know that they grow upon trees which are common in the coastal plains regions of the South and found locally as far north as Pennsylvania and along the Atlantic cost to southern Maine. While the C'hristnuis holly may reach a height of 50 feet and a diam eter of 2 to 3 feet in Arkansas and Texas, it rarely exceeds 20 feet in height and a few inches in diameter Ski the extreme northern part of its natural range. Another Christmas gift of the forest is the mistletoe. It is the only parasitic plant that is used for adorn ment at Christmas time. It is some times called a tree thief, for it gets all its nourishment from the trees upon which it lives. Traveling throughout the South one may see thousands of trees literally festooned with the mistletoe. It sometimes grows in the form of a witch's broom. or one may see it dangling down from the branches of a tree in grace ful array. It always appropriates for its own development the life blood of the tree upon which it feeds. There are more than 400 species of mistletoe known in the world. Most of them occur in the tropics, and nearly all or them are parasitic Many varieties are found in the United States. They occur from the coast of New Jersey southward and westward. How Mistletoe Grows. The mistletoe is so common in the state of Oklahoma that it has been selected as the state flower. It you question an Oklahonian about the parasitic plant as a state flower, he is likely to answer that if man may tap maple tree for sugar, and the pine tree fur turpentine, it Is fair for the mistletoe to tap trees so that it may develop and become available for decorative use. The mistletoe Is not only unique in Its appearance, and in its flowering habits, but also because of its struc ture. A careful examination of the leaves of the mistletoe will reveal that they are almost nerveless, thick and fleshy, and if one has a magni fying glass and examines the lower surface of the leaf he will find only about 200 breathing pores to the square Inch, while in the common lilac there occur at least 200,000 breathing pores to the square inch. The white fruit of the mistlefoe is attractive and unique in its make up. The seed is covered with a gelatinous covering which adheres very readily to the feet of birds, and is thus carried to the twigs and branches of ' ttfeea upon which It germinates and begins to grow. When the seed puts out roots they always turn toward the branch, no matter whether they are located on the upper or lower side. Few people may know that it is possible to raise the mistletoe. In planting seeds of the mistletoe it is Important to know the trees upon which it prefers to grow for it will not develop upon all kinds of trees. Some of the trees upon which it pre fers to grow are the elms and hack berries. Both of these groups are close kin to the mistletoe. Large quantities of the trailing pine, also known as the princess nine. and ground hemlock are used at Christmas time. . These plants really are not pines or hemlocks, but are closely related to the ferns. When our -country was still new and undeveloped, decorative material for Christinas use was superabund ant, but now the demand is so great and the supply so small that some thing must be done to insure a future supply. Many suggestions may be maae to meet tne situation, but there are only two practical solutions to this great problem. It is imperative that the existing supply be given adequate protection and harvested with care. There is no better way to Insure a future supply of fir and spruce trees, holly wreaths and mistletoe than by making our forests lireproor. That the use of the Christmas trees is perfectly compatible with the w-el fare of the forest. Is fully proved by tne practice in me t-uropean forests. The cutting of small trees for Christ- mss is not there cosidered in the least as a menace to the forest but as a means for improving the forest and source of revenue, and is there fore constantly encouraged. The following rules are laid down by the United States Forest Service for the woodland owner who wishes to im prove a rather dense stand of ever greens and market the good trees lor ennstmas purposes. Find a market for Christmas trees of the species which are growing on your la n a. Go through the woodland care fully, pick out and mark the most vigorous specimens of trees. These should be allowed to remain to form the mature stand of timber. Mark for removal the trees which nre crowding these better specimens. Cut as many of these inferior trees as there is a suitable market for. Cut them carefully to avoid damage to remaining trees. Remove care fully from the area and market them in accordance with Instructions from the buyer to avoid any cause for dispute.

BIBLE THOUGHT FOR TODAY SEEK ETERNAL THINGS: We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things ichich are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18. THE FRENCHWOMAN BY DR. FRANK CRANE (Copyright 1921. by Frank Crane) To. the average American, the Frenchwoman seems to be a figure of frivolity. Conventional ideas often crystallize entirely erron eous, not to say malicious, conceptions. As a matter of fact the Frenchwoman is about the most practical, hardheaded, and thrifty person in the world. She is not extravagant, because she has been earlv trained to the practical use of money and because the law of the country and the customs of society provide that she have money of her own from the day of her birth. " The first preoccupation of French parents is to secure a dot for their daughter. It is considered that she will need this in order to get a husband worthy of her position. And if she should not marry she will nave enough to live on, and her fortune is so arranged by legal ties that she cannot dispose of it foolishly. bhe is taught irom her earliest years to appreciate - the security of a solid financial background. A recent article in the Times outlines the French woman's financial position. "She is brought up," says this writer, "to treat money with the respect due that it represents. Neither vanity nor philanthropy is al lowed to interfere with investments. To live from hand to mouth is not her way, and whether her income be large or small she lives within it and manages to save. "To be thrifty is a precept she learns with her alphabet. To be discreet in conversation about her possessions is another. Prudence, taste, and natural intelligence help her to get good value for what she spends. Few Frenchwomen are dependent on their husbands for the money they spend on themselves. The system of the dot has its advantages, and this is one of them. The general rule in a French household is that husband and wife share running expenses and pay for their own personal needs out of their private purse." A wholesome brake on a woman's spending oppor tunities in France is the custom of paying ready money for everything. This custom makes it difficult for a woman of small means to run into debt. Standing ac counts are rare, and few husbands have the habit of saying, "Uuy what you need and have the Dill sent in. to me." In every shop and restaurant of France a woman is at the cash box and keeps the books. One gets the impression after a while that it is the women of France that hold the reins. lends itself easily to the forming of the noun Canadians, Mexico to Mex icans. Citizens of the United States of America are most conveniently designated as Americana. Q. Can a letter be recalled after it has once been put in the mail? E. C. K. A. The action to be taken in a case of this kind depends largely on circumstances. After a letter is mailed the only way the writer can withdraw it is by written application to the postmaster at office of mailing and upon satisfactory identification. Q. A says that tha idea of estab lishing libraries in tha manner fol lowed by Andrew Carnegie was not original with him. B says it was. Can you throw any light on tha sub ject? S. I. M. A. From manuscripts discovered ty French explorers throughout China and Turkestan, it would seem that Houei Tze, a wealthy Chinese merchant of the fifth century, origi nated the Idea, an extract from one of 20,000 or mere rolls of manuscrtp being as follows: "Libraries I have given by the score. " I ha-e scattered them over all the land, that the light of learning may never be dimmed and that the gra'efut may do honor to memory as long as Buddha lives. Into dark places have I thrown the light -and the light will be with ma forever." Q. In auction bridge, which aid wina a rubber, tha aide that wins two games op the aid which makes tha most points? I. M. C. A. The rules of the Whist club ot . New York for 1920 say that the side which wins more points is the winner of the rubber. This is a change from tha rule in force at that time which was that the side winning two games won the rubber, this making the ex pression, "winning a losing rubber" possible. . o A French engineer has invented a stabilizer for airplanes which, it is said, will make it possible for the pilot to leave his post while tha machine automatically flies. In a test a large passenger-carrying ma chine flew from Paris tq Ameterdara with out the pilot once touching the levers. It is claimed that in a fog or thick clouds the appliance assures the plane keeping the correct course. Electric lights reveal any deviation at night The appliance weighs only iS pounds and does not interfere with the ordinary steering gears. Canopus, giant of the solar system, is said to be 49,000 times as bright as the sun. ABOUT TE3E STATE Q. What state has had two broth ers for governor? E. L. L. A. The present governor of Ten nessee, Alfred Taylor, is the brother or a former governor, Robert 1 Tay lor. Alfred Taylor is a Republican while Robert L. Taylor was elected on the Democratic ticket three times. Q. Why was the eagle changed on American money D. H. Y. A. The fathers of the republic de cided upon an eagle as an emblem, and unfortunately the species known to them was the sea or bald eaule, feathered only to the knees, and a "piratical parasite of the osprey." The golden eagle, to which a chance has been made on the coins of the country, 's feathered to the toes. Q. Does sterilizing a razor blade with hot water injure it? W. O. A. There is no real basi3 for the statement that pouring hot water on a razor will injure the steel. In some cases the continued application of boiling water might exert a slight tempering effect, but usually the in fluence of hot water applications would merely "season" hardened steel without any material change in hardness. Q. What are the best of Scott's novels? D. L. A. Sroti's works of this character historical romances, 'lvnnhoe.'" "The Talisman" and "Quentin Durward" are often ranked a. ti.e lst of these. O. Why are people from the Unit ed States known as Americans, when even North America includes other countries? G. A. T. A. The hiibit of oijllinc inltiil-i!..iits of this couniry .Ann ricans probably arose from the fact that any other' distinctive title is awkward. Canada Consider Organizing Scouts DOUGLAS A boy scout council for Cochise county and a special troop for Douglas may be formed some time in tire near future if an investigation that is to be made by a Douglas chamber of commerce and mines committee ascertain the new work w ill not duplicate that done by the city Y. M. C. A. or the public schools. . A meeting for the purpose of dis cussing the organization of a scout troop here was held last nipht at the chamber of commerce, W. H. Webster presiding A number of prominent citizens were present and J. E. Thompson, state organizer for the scouts, made an address. He ex plained the purposes of the scout movement, what it accomplishes, what it costs and what were its gen eral effect upon not only the boy but the community. International. Arrest Ammunition Purchaser TUCSON Jose Salcido, alias Jose Martinez, was identified Wednesday morning by clerks in the Albert Steinfeld Hardware company as the person who several weeks ago pur chased 6.000 rounds of ammunition w hich is in direct violation of a regu lation prohibiting the purchase of large quantities of ammunition with in 100 miles from an international boundary without a permit. Salcido was arrested by the sherifr of Santa Cruz county Nov. 20 because of suspicious actions. He was brought to Tucson Wednesday morning by Special Customs Agent Al Scharff, stationed at Nogales. for identifica tion and was taken back to the bor der city Wednesday afternoon. Citi zen. , . . Get Jewels and Pia YUMA The home of Mr. and Mrs. James Berry and Avenue C near Tenth street was the scene or an Im promptu surprise party Tuesday aft ernoon. A number of uninvited guests took advantiiKe of the absence of members of the family and spent the afternoon going through the Ber ry home.

Sun. Find $3000 Ore PRESCOTT Discovery of gold bearing ore assaying $300q a ton was made by R. M. Hanson early this week on ground 1500 feet north of the main workings of the group of three claims on lower Slate creek known as the Golden Eagle group, according to word brought to Prescott by Hanson yesterday. Hanson last night said the ore was contained in an outcrop ping threa feet wide on a new loca tion on the first north extension of the Golden Eagle. Journal-Miner.
