Mrs. Robert Tomlinson of Martins ville has a canary .that answers to he name of Woody, relates the Indi anapolis News. Last fall the bird es caped from the cage and flew away. Immediately the whole town was asked to keep its figurative eye on Woody. He was reported here and there, feeding with the town sparrows. Mrs. B. would call up and say that she had seen him, but by the time his owner came he was gone. For a whole month Woody ctlvorted around with the pests of the neighbor hood. Then dark, rainy days began to dawn. Still Woody stayed with the sparrows. A neighbor called ap from the other side of the town one day and said that Woody was sitting around In her trees, the very picture of despair. There Is little doubt that he was thinking of his warm cage at home. So his owner hied herself over to the spot and hung his cage In one of the trees. Then she went In to gossip. The rain continued to fall and presently Woody hopped Into his cage and the tragedy was over, for that night he had his regular warm spot In the dining room. It's much easier' to lay plans than It Is to hatch them out Part of the Ritual of Purification That . Has Survived in Scotland Until Recently. In folk custom, needflre la Are kin dled by friction of two sticks of wood or of a rope on a wooden stake to ward off demons of disease. AmoDg the many customs and beliefs connected with fire one of the most important Is that of ritual purification. The new fire Is supposed to regenerate, as fire sacrifice is designed to sustain, the Invisible beings. Needflre is a prac tice, usually, of shepherd peoples to ward off disease from the flocks. In historic times the sparks for kindling the needflre were obtained by twirling a wooden peg around a wooden post As In the case of new fire, the need flre was almost always accompanied with the extinguishing of the fires of the locality, and the neighbors also rekindled their fires from It as in the new fire ceremony. In practice, the people passed, or the herds were driv en through or between the flames of the needflre for purification. The need fire custom survived In the highlands of Scotlanl until recent date, and probably traces of this superstition still exist In parts of Europe.

"There's a Reason" Made by Postum Cereal Co., Battle Creeks Midi. are agreeing to If they Join the league. The state department has acknowl edged receipt of the request from Juan Franco Paredes, minister for foreign affairs of Salvador. His note says, among other things: j "The text of the treaty contains one article which has awakened warm discussion throughout the whole Amer ican continent - including the United States, due no doubt to its brevity and lack of clearness. I refer to article 21 : '"Nothing in this covenant shall be deemed to affect the validity of In ternational engagements, such as treaties of arbitration or regional under standings like the Monroe doctrine, for securing the maintenance of peace.' "My government recognizes that the Monroe doctrine consolidates the independence of the continental states of Latin America and saved them from the great danger of a European Intervention. It realizes that It is a powerful factor in the existence of the democratic form of government in this conti nent and that it raised a barrier to European colonization. "Since however, the covenant of the League of Nations does not deter mine the purposes nor fix a definite criterion of international relationship in America, and since, on the other hand, the doctrine will be forthwith trans formed in view of the full sanction of the nations of the world into a prin ciple of universal public law, juris et de jure, I request that your excellency will be good enough to give the authentic interpretation of the Monroe doc trine, as it is understood In the present historical moment." "Stop Throwing Forests Into the Waste Baskets!" ffQTOP throwing the forests of the country into your waste basket" is the u message sent to the business houses of the country by the American Forestry association, which Is enlisting the aid of the schools, business houses, and women's organizations in a pa- TflFKEARtT MORE WHEKf THESE CAME FROM 5G0.S15.051 73.167,118 per conservation campaign. Charles Lathrop Pack, president of the association, has given out fig ures which show the tremendous in crease in pulp wood consumption. In congress the subject has come up for frequent discussion. Here are the figures submitted by Mr. Pack, who calls for a national forest policy and for better fire protection for the forests, in cords con sumed and value: 1SS9 1,986,310 S 9,837,516 1917 5,4S0.075 1909 4,001,607 34,477,540 1918 5,250,794 1916 5,228,558 45,785,682 "A look at those figures will cause some deep thinking on the part of publishers," said Mr. Pack. "We must stop throwing our forests into the waste basket. Business houses can bring about a great saving if they will write the carboD of the letter they are answering on the back of the letter received. This will save paper and cut filing expenses, too." The situation, Mr. Pack declared, will not Improve until there Is greater production of raw material. One of the pressing problems before the Amer ican Paper and Pulp association, which met recently in New Tork city, was the future raw material supply. It recommended a nation-wide forest sur vey, better fire protection, and increased planting of trees, I One of the first organizations to join the American Forestry association In Its campaign for paper conservation is the National Woman's Association of Commerce of Chicago. Miss Florence King, the president has issued a call to all members connected with business houses to start the agitation af once. "Boiling" Senators Give Soldier a "Square Deal' SENATORS got excited the other day over the matter of soldiers and the loss of their private property. In consequence the senate passed a bill to amend the act now in force and give the soldier a better chance to recover from Uncle Sam. Senator Wadsworth said the present situation was "per fectly absurd" and read these para graphs from a letter from the secre tary of war : The original act was intended to provide a simple and expeditions method of settling the claims of offl- cers and enlisted men for reimburse ment for personal property lost, dam aged, or destroyed in the military services of the United States through no fault of their own. However, a series of decisions by the officials of the treasury department have placed such restrictions on the law as to preclude favorable consideration of a majority of the claims which have been filed. These decisions are briefly summarized as follows: The auditor has disallowed all claims for property lost by Are unless claimants can certify that the loss occurred while the claimant was engaged In saving government property. The comptroller has ruled that "money" Is not an article of property, The comptroller has recently decided that property lost In France can not be considered as having been lost "in the field during campaign," unless the claimant was actually in the battle line. This decision will affect prac tically all losses of personal baggage in the field other than that In course of transportation. Senator Wadsworth said the committee on military affairs "boiled with Indignation," and its purpose was to give the soldier a "square deal."
