M, Mrs. Bartlett gave a dinner to her sister and daughter, of Hickman. Everybody seomed happy, but some of the boys found it hard to navigate the streets toward night. Their feet became obstreperous and willful and would not keep the straight and narrow path. Our postmaster, J. M. Brown, and his assistant, and our express men, Bartlett & Reld, were swamped with Christmas packages. They certainly did a roaring business especially the expressmen that Is, their goods had more of the "roar" In them.

The papers have made all sorts of fun of him for his foolish effort, scarcely giving him credit for a sound mind, but I rath er bcllevo ho has something up his sleeve. He may not bo a philosopher, statesman, or sage, but ho is evident ly nobody's fool. I do not know of anything that could have been done to have tho Ford cars more univer sally brought to the notice of tho world. Ford, tho peace man, and tho Ford automobile are "Insepara ble and when peace does come, be will already havo his car before tho world public. It was a big ad. for him. Esq, L. A.

It bus been shown that forests pre vent tho rapid melting of Ice nnd snow and thus avert or modify floods In tho spring. Mountains also play an Impor tant part with regard to floods. By in tercepting drifting currents of moisture laden air mountains are active agents iu precipitating rainfall, and unless they are protected by forests tho wa ters pour down Into the valley In de structive torrents. Tho evergreen trees, particularly tho spruces, are es-i peclally useful In controlling theso tor rents. Under all spruce forests there is a large deposit of what woodsmen call "duff." Thfa is composed of partially decayed trees, bark, needles, cones and mosses. This duff varies from one to six feet In thickness nnd has the power of ab sorbing aud holding water like a sponge. During the heavy spring ruins it becomes thoroughly saturated with water, which gradually oozes down the mountain sides Into the streams in summer. Tho trees also protect tho snowfall from the rapid action of tho sun in spring, thus restraining floods from that sourco also. The protection of the forests there fore is tho surest nnd safest way In which to prevent destructive inunda tions. They are really natural storage reservoirs, not holding buck great masses of water in bulk, which may be released by the breaking of some dam and carry torriblo destruction before them, but storing it In the capillaries of tho spongy soil nnd, yielding It gen tly and continuously during the season when most needed. London Standard. Cutting Down Expenses. It is expensive enough to put on a play and get tho true artistic effects without wastlug money on unneces sary detail. As an cxamplo of this, a manager tells tub following Incident: A playwright was reading a comedy to tho manager when ho came to these lines: "nave n cigar." "Thanks; I don't mind if I do." "Walt." said tho manager. "If I'm going to produco that play that second lino wUl havo to read. 'No, thanks; 1 don't smoke.' That change will save a good deal of money every season, for an actor must smoke good cigars when It Is necessary to smoke at all." Kan sas City Star. Testing the Piano. The town council of a thriving Scotch burgh recently acquired a piano for their town hall and appointed three of their number to inspect and report on tho purchase. Tho councilors were not musical experts, but one, a joiner, bending down and applying his eye to the several corners of tho Instrument, remarked, "I'm no Judge o' music, bnt I'll warrant ye a' tho boards are plumb." Scarlet Fever. Scarlet fever is practically unknown in the tropics, and doctors say this t because so little fresh milk is drwttk there.
