On some of the National Forests of; the Northwest the snow lay on the ground longer this spring than for many years. In consequence stock men have been considerably delayed in getting their herds on the ranges. All of the 2S counties of Utah con tain portions of National Forests and consequently all share in the 25 per cent of the National Forest receipts which is paid over to the road and school funds. This is true of no other State. One hundred thirty thousand maps of the National Forests will he dis- . trihuted to tourists this summer, j These maps show the liest campsites, j good hunting and fishing grounds, roads, trails, and telephone lines, and give directions how to reach points of interest.

LOOK MORE TO THE FUTURE Mother’s Vision Sometimes Too Urn ' Ited, Is the Opinion of Writer In Leading Magazine. Why do so many mothers fall? Is It not because they lack Imagination? Because they cannot see tho effect of their training on their children’s later life? They have fixed rules to fit pres ent circumstances. Their discipline Is for today; none of It has reference to tho future. If mothers had a little more vision, they would not try to govern their children to suit parental convenience, but they would let the youngsters bo themselves. A mother should be able to see the man In the child, as the gardener sees the bush with Its blossoms In the tiny sprout; and she should care for her children ns ho cares for hla plants—not trying to twist them Into unnatural shapes but providing the proper conditions for them to develop according to their nature. Help your child to develop Judg ment rather than compel him to obey arbitrary rules. The arbitrary for mulas of conduct you manufacture for him today may not help him In the least In his later relationships. When your son grows to maturity he will not he surrounded with the same con ditions that made tip the environment of hla childhood. Ho will perhaps go to new places and come In contact with new people. Even If he docs not loavo hla native town, he will have to face new conditions; for his town will change with the times. Ills city will not harbor tho same Ideas that pre vailed In bis youth. Mon will think differently, and he will have to keep lip with the procession. Are you pre paring film to meet the tests of life that will come to him when he Is a man? Are you preparing your daugh ter to be a better mother than you are?—Mother’s Magazine. ORIGIM OF CURFEW BELL Merely Served as Warning to Cover Fire in the Time of William the Conqueror. So many towns ring tho curfew hell to warn the children that 9 o’clock p. ra. must find them safe In the homo nest, It is interesting to know that tha curfew bell originated In the time of William tho Conqueror, says a writer In tho People's Homo Journal. A "cur few” was a fire cover of metal, shaped liko a hood, with a handle by which it was lifted. It had an opening on one side, and was about ten Inches in height. Because fires In early days were made on large, open hearths, the smoke escaping through a hole in tho roof, fire risk was great. It was or dered that every householder before retiring must cover his lire with a “couvre-feu," meaning “cover the fire.’’ Ho scraped the embers together at the back of the hearth, putting tho cover over them, tho open part close against the chimney. A bell was rung In the market place, at an early hour every night, ns a sig nal that people must extinguish their fires and go to bed. The term “cur few" was associated with the ringing of the bell. But in William the Con queror's time a curfew was nothing more poetical than a plain metal fire extinguisher. Far Better. In a neat English village lived a to bacconist named Farr. Now, this to bacconist had a rival. Both want ed the trade of the town. Farr, be ing a wit, devised a sign and hung It outside his shop: "Best tobacco by Farr." The townsfolk, relishing a pun, flocked to IPs shop and his trade In creased at the expense of his rival's business. Now, his rival brooded and medi tated, consulted many books of an cient lore, a Roget’s Thesaurus, and a rhyming dictionary. One day his face was seen to wreathe Itself In smiles. Gossip hovered expectant about his shop. The anticipations of tho townsfolk were not disappointed. For that very day ho hung out a sign which read: "Far belter tobacco than the best by Farr." Immersed In Self. We are all too immefsed In self— that Is where the trouble lies, if wa could only got out of ourselves enough to forget personal feelings in our re lations with outsiders they would not have to suffer for no fault of their own. The stenographer and bookkeep er would not have to put up with their employer’s Irascibility, the maid would not have to endure her mistress’ harsh faultfinding, tho poor dramatist’s play would not have to fail because of tha critic's indigestion, and the singer would not be hopelessly set back be cause of the reviewer’s grippe. All this, of course, will only come when wa have learned a little about self-con* trol and self-forgetfulness. Valuable Wood. The tree most valuable In the Gui ana forests Is that known as green heart, or siperia. Greenheart Is among Lloyds' list of eight first-class woods and is one of the strongest woods in use. It is employed largely In en gineering and construction work, har bor works, railway trestles and bridges. The 50 large pairs of lock gates in the Manchester ship canal are all built of greenheart from Demerara. Engineers have said it is impossible to estimate the durability of greenheart, particularly in the construction of docks, their lasting quality being 11m i lied only by the iron bolts and other fastenings used. TRICKS WAR FOE; WALKS4BO MILES Detention Prisoner Dupes Cana dians After He Is Held for Months. MAKES LONG TRIP ON $3 Two Loaves of Bread a Day Is Ra tion of Austrian in Journey From Buffalo to New York—Doesn’t Like Canada. New York.— A bedraggled, oil smeared, ruddy little man with some thing akin to fear in his big, brown eyes, stepped softly into the office of Arthur Concurs, superintendent of the Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Sooiety, recently. ‘Tch bin bier," he announced calm ly, as though that were the most im portant thing in the world. And it was, to him, for twenty-three-yeai-010 Eugcn Spitz, Austrian reservist anu expert upholsterer, bud walked all the way from Buffalo to New York with deadly fear of the Canadian army spurring him on. Twenty-four days hud Eugen been on the road, and his expenditures foi food during that time had been just tlie three dollars, all that he had on starting. For eight mouths before he began his 4SU-mile walk he had been a prisoner in a Toronto detention camp, and his hike was Inspired by the overwhelming desire to put just ns much territory as possible between himself and Canada. Within the Enemy’s Lines. Spitz came to the United States from Bninn, which is near the Ger man border of Austria, on June 18 1914. He went to Buffalo to work in a dye factory a tew months later. The most peculiar part of his story 1s that last fall a German offered him a good Job of indefinite nature, anc took him to Toronto without letting him know they were entering Can ad a. “As soon as we got off the train,’ Spitz explained in broken English “that man disappeared. The police man came, and they took me on a trail to a big stone house, where were t\vi or three hundred Germans and Aus trians. “There I lived in a room with sixty others for six mouths. We slept oi tlie floor, with blankets for cover, anc we had soup and bread to eat. but tlu only work we had to do was clean up tho camp. But all the time 1 wat afraid, and then three of our nnmbei tunneled under the outside wall and tried to escape. One man got away, but the soldien killed one of the others and captureo the third. “All the time I kept telling tlu guards that I was a Roumanian, anc at last they believed me. So finally they told me 1 could go, I walked to the railroad, whore a lot of Italians were working, and 1 told the conduc tor 1 was an Italian. He let mt- ride on tho train to Buffalo.’’ “Why didn’t you get a Job in Huffa 10. then, instead of coming hero?" lu was asked. “Too Near Canada." “Buffalo —no, no!” Spitz exclaimed excitedly, bis face hushing. “Too neui Canada. "1 sell my suit for $3 and I put or my overalls. Then 1 start to walk U New York along tho railroad tracks Sometimes I slept in freight car* and sometimes In watchmen’s houses, but all tho time I walked and walk' d. 1 uto two loaves of bread every day, be. cause 1 had money enough to buy that and at Syracuse a poor Jew took mt to his house, made me stay all nlghi ami gave me food. “1 got tired, but 1 walked—be. aust Canada was behind. Now 1 am here I am glad.” Mr. Conoors examined tho little man’s papers and found they bore out his story. Then he gave the refugee some fresh clothes and a bed. and within a few hours Spitz was ready tc look for a job. "Hut not near Canada,” he warned EARTHQUAKE FILLS A WELL It Had Been Dry, but Disturbance Brought Twenty-Six Feet of Water. Star, Idaho. —According to a report here, the recent earth tremors brought 26 feet of water in a well, which had formerly been dry, on the ranch ol A. L. Brady, living north of Star on Willow creek. It is said that Mr Brady had sunk his well to a depth of 62 feet, only to be disappointed in not finding water. Visiting the exca vation tho next day after the earth quake. he is said to have found 24 feet of water in the well. An additional rise of two feet over the next night brought the water still nearer the sur face. Now Mr. Brady is speculating over the possibility that a few more gentle convulsions of Mother Nature may give him a genuine artesian well Preacher Picks Dp Pearls. Neenah, Wig.—Rev. P. I.

In the Flowery Kingdom they work wonders with their flowers. They make calendars of them. They tell stories with them. They symbolize aeroplanes, dainty women, and every thing else by means of floral units, which we In America would uso merely for a bouquet. The folklore and mythology of Japan are often vividly expressed In flower arrangement. In arranging flowers the Japanese try to place them In the same posi tion that they would naturally take. An American would put a bunch of cherry blossoms Into a vase, upright; a Japanese would place the branch in a horizontal position, such as they occupy in growing. The Japanese idea of flower ar rangement is that one perfect indi vidual flower, together with leaves and stem, is more beautiful than masses of them bunched together. By using special containers and supports, the Japanese mako flowers last twice as long as we do. In ar ranging flowers in a receptacle they trim the leaves from tire stalks be low" the water, and for a short dis tance above. This gives the flower the appearance of growing. By tak ing a piece of bamboo, the Japanese will conventionally place flowers in it in such away as to reproduce a ship In a calm or in a storm. The Japanese do not like the rose and the lily. Flowers that have thorns are cruel and those whose pet als drop off symbolize Inconstancy. The cherry, wistaria, magnolia, azalea, peony, camellia, peach, plum, maple, pine, chrysanthemum, iris, lotus and morning glory find more popular favor. LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT Comparatively Trivial Trouble in Phil adelphia Building Made Structure Temporarily Worthless. Any lugh-school girl graduate can write a pretty essay on “The Little Things That Count." For example, a cinder In the eye is more formidable than Mount Shasta, 3000 miles away. One fly spoils a bar rel of ointment, and so on indefinitely. Had the president of the United States resigned at 11:45 o'clock on a recent day scores of persons would have been less affected than they were when tiro elevator men in a skyscraper at Broad and Chestnut quit work. We do have a vice president, but we have no wings to carry us to our eight eenth floor oftices. Consternation is a feeble word and far 100 anemic to describe the feelings of that throng of men and women who swiftly clogged the corridors of that huge building. Can you imagine a more futile tiling than 20 floors of masonry and steel without an elevator? You never can imagine how many people shoot up and down in these iron-grilled cages in ten minutes, until the cages cease to fly like shuttles on a weaver's loom. Just a few cents' worth of human en ergy in the arm of a man. or rather the lack of it, puts |3,000,000 worth of building on the scrap heap!— Phil adelphia Public Ledger. "Ye” Is Pronounced "Thuh.” The “y” in “ye'’ is simply a substi tute for the Anglo-Saxon “thorn let ter," so called, which we have no way of getting into this column. That Anglo-Saxon letter, like the corre sponding Icelandic character, stood for “th.” The Encyclopedia Britan nica says: "The English letter ‘thorn’ sur vived and continued in uso down to the fifteenth century, when it was transformed to y.” As for the pronunciation of "ye," meaning "the,” it is, of course tas near as we can put it into printer's ink) "thuh" today, as was in Chaucer's time and long before. Nobody who speaks English ever pronounces "the" as it it spelled "thee,” but gives it the same sound as the “e" has In the corresponding French word. Just as the French pronounce "lo ]our" "lull zhour,” so is "the day" pronounced "thuh day." . . . The class is now dismissed. —Manitoba Free Fress. Saliva and the Emotions. The influence of fear upon the flow of saliva has long been known. The dry mouth of the nervous person called upon to speak in public is an example. In India the effect of fear in stopping the flow of saliva was at one time used in finding the guilty per son when several were suspected of committing a crime. All who were suspected had to chew the consecrated rice and after a giv en time spit it out upon a leaf of the sacred fig tree. If anyone put forth the rice in a dry state, that was taken as proof that fear of being dis covered had stopped his saliva from flowing. He was regarded as guilty of the crime.—Walter B. Cannon, M. i)„ in the Youth's Companion. An Effective Mask. “Such a lot of things happened this afternoon, dear," said Mrs, Young bride to her husband. "I complained to Norah about the stove not being blackened and she put on her things and left. Then 1 decided to black the stove myself, and right in the midst of it who should call but Mrs. De- Stylo.” “What In the world did you do?’ “I Just put some more blackening on my face, went to the door and told her I wasn't In. And off she went saying she wmuld call again.”—Boston Transcript.
