TIRED OF HIS LITTLE SPREE INEEDFIRE OLD FOLK CUSTOM
"Runaway" Canary Glad to Be Back
In the Comfort and Safety
of His Home.
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.

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.

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!"

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,

"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."

aires throughout the country shows

food, 120. Corporation officials numbered 716 millionaires. .
