No. 7. era The Forestry Movement. Tbo basic principle of forestry is to Ret the greatest possible uso out of tbe forest. It Is opposed to tbe old idea of lumbering by cutting tbe for est clean, leaving behind a mass of debris, tor lire to complete tbe de struction. It Is also opposed to tbe sentimental notion that tbe forest should bo retained as a thing of beauty and Is best treated when left alone. Tbe forester contemplates the forest as a crop Just as tbe farmer does bis wheat and corn, to oe harvested when ripe, but in such a way as to get a protltable return and at tbe same time perpetuate the crop. This is the principle back of tbe forest move ment in the United States, and it is to spread this idea, particularly among those persons who have tbe greatest ueed of forest products, that this con gress is called. It Is the greatest single effort yet planned In this coun try to Instill in our people the lesson that certain European nations took to heart several centuries ago In connec tion with their forests, which they turned from threatened destruction into a national unset, while still older countries failed tu hear a like warning of dlsapeai'iug loiesw uud became arid and fruitless, It is tu teach the people to take borne to themselves the part that tbe forest plays lu their daily lives that this and previous forest meetings of a national character have been arranged, to point out to them that reckless lumbering aud the denuding of steep hillsides have much to do with bring ing disastrous flxidsuf recent years, such as tbe one in the southern Appa lachian mountains, where sixteen mil lion dollars' worth of property was de stroyed In two weeks. It Is known that forest tires in the United States annually destroy from twenty-five mil lion dollars' to fifty million dollars' worth of timber and other property. The purpose of tbe forest movement Is to avert these tremendous disasters by stamping out the multitude of less er evils that unite tu cause tbem. From "An American Forestry Conr Kress," by B. M. Sutter, in the Ameri can Monthly Review of Reviews for December. X Narrow Escape. While attending a Sunday school convention in Crystal towDsbtp Sun day, J. D. Matteson came near having his bouse burntd down. In leaving home they shut u tbe house good and tight, and to this act they lay the sav ing of their home.' While they were gonosome fire fell from a defective stove pipe on to a bed and when they .reached home, they found fully half of tbe bed clothing ind bed stead burned black with a smouldering fire which wben they opened tbe door, broke into a fierce blaze. Mr. Matte son with some help grabbed up the burning bedclotblog and ran with tbem Into tbe yard and then turned his attention to tbe bedstead and soon bad tbe fire extinguished on that. If there bad been a door or window open so that air could have been admitted, tbe bouse would have been in ashes by the time Mr. Matteson would have re turned. Prairie View News.

McAllister of Deer Creek township, last Saturday established a record for busking corn that it will be-hard for youths of bis age and size to excel. In ten hours be shucked fifty-six bushels of corn. The amount was determined by weight so there can be no question as to tbe measurement. This was done In a field that is yielding about frty-five bushels per acre and was wholly with out assistance. Raymond Is quite tali for his ae but weighs only about ninety-five pounds and he has made a record that many strong men fail to surpass. In Justice Coiirt. Earl Lowe was tried before tbe court of W. 0. Francis Saturday even ing for assault and battery, upon com plaint of Ernest Williams. He was found guilty and a fine of $5 00 and costs amounting to $5.70 assessed against him. Tbe trouble seems to hare resulted from a bet of one dollar which was won by Earl Lowe and which Ernest Williams refused to pay. Justice Francis, in pronouncing sentence stated, that tbe fine was made heavier than It otherwise would have been because both parties were school teachers and by virtue of their positions should set a better example before younger people.

Considering what has happened, 'twont surpise me in tbe least To see tbe sun rise in the west Instead of In tbe east.

Mr. Thrasher Is related to the family of N. C Heaton, of Crys tal township where be lived for" sever al years following the occupation of a farmer and carpenter. Old Time Cures. A sure cure for the ague, according to an old time specific, was to rub a live spider in butter and then cat It. The late Vincent Stuckey Line, who died recently in England after spend log much of bis life In the collection of folk-lore, gives many other instan ces, of the patent medicines of former generations. To rub a dried mole to powder and to swallow as much of It as would He on a shilling for nine days in succession was another cure for ague. . A hare's foot carried on the person prevented colic; eels applied to tbe ears were a specific against deaf ness, and epilepsy yielded to a gentle treatment of toadstools gathered just as they were forcing their way through tbe ground and swallowed at mid night. There were many ways of cur ing fits, but the simplest plan was to go Into a church at midnight and walk threi times around tbe commun ion taMe. A snake skin worn around the temples was good for headache, but if that failed the sufferer might try moss grown on a human skull, tben powdered and taken as snuff Star. Shooting Not Good. Tbe late Bishop Beckwltb of Geor gia, was fond of his gun and spent much of his time hunting, says a rep resentative from that state. One day tbe bishop was out with dog and gun and met a member of his parish whom he reproved for Inattention to bis re ligious duties. "You should attend church and reaa your Bible," said tbe bishop. "I do read my Bible, bishop," was the answer, "and I don't find any mention of the apostles going a-sboot-ing." "No," replied the bishop, "the shooting was very bad in Palestine, so they went fishing Instead. Ex. Cow Pastures. Recently a man thought be was par ticularly pointed out when we spoke of olnder walks. Such was not the in tention. We did not designate any particular person and do not Intend to but If you find that the description Is Identical, accept It as your own. We 1015A certainly did not mean any person who As building in the city. By all means, build and take all the street room neeessary. Those people who live on small farms in town and tben want to use the street for a cow pasture or a pota to patch and fear that If they should make a sidewalk they would lose one mouthful of choice weeds for their Jerseys, are designated. Don't you suppose tbe city council could do something If they would set to work? Appoint a sidewalk exten sion committee at least to Inquire into this xatter of Importance to ev ery one. People of Pbillipsburg, why Is It not just as reasonable that a firm or Indi vidual can do business in a sod house or tumbled down shack as he can, la an up-to-date, substantial clean build ing? You know the man in the good building, other things being equal, will increase his business over tbe other. If your town has broken sidewalks, tall weeds and potato patches In front of residence and business houses, peo ple think of the place as decadent. Every dollar put into a good walk makes your proporty and prospects tbe dollar better. Contributed. Wedding Bells.
