Tho dining room was prettily trim mod with white chrysanthemums and ferns anil the table was loaded with good tilings to eat. Mr. and Mrs. Dooling were the recipients of many beautiful presents. Among those present were: Prof. T. J. Heaney, of Brooklyn, Mr. and Mrs. F. W.

WOULD NOT DO WITHOUT THEM Many Things that Some People Complain of are an Advantage. W<s think it about time ‘‘tho [recent acquisition at the foot of Henry street” bo let rest. It must be very weary—that ‘‘recent acquisition”—of being flung abonc, picked up and thrown at our former City Fathers ovorv once in a while. It certainly hns given pleasure to a great many people from far and uoar the past two summers and beforo and siuoe to many of'onr own town, as a moans of get ting cool, puro air it has been a bless ing. It 1ms also brought in considerable mouoy of late and has been of benefit to Messrs. Rose and Hillman, Andrew Furman, etc., for loading clay, ere. Hoes ‘‘Equality, eto.” mean that the city water, electric lights, paving oi stroets, trolloy cars, telephone, etc., aro ‘‘the tombstones marking the in ability and inalertness” of our former Mayors and councilmen? If so, the new aro glad to have ‘‘the town cov ered with them” and see no reason for rapping tiio said persons. We cannot expect perfection and notwith standing tilings go wrong onco iu a i while we have lots of comfort with those very ‘‘tombstones.” We wouldn’t be without the trolley cart witli their shortcomings for a mint ol mouoy, nor the electric light with itt honntifnl glow, even tliougn it has a fancy lor playing hide and seek once in a while, not the city water with its opportunities for extra cleanliness, etc. Get out your petition about the tax if vou want it, sign it, get it sign ed and presented, but ‘‘act honorably ’ and stop rapping those who have brought into our borough very many comforts it did not possess before. CATTLE STEALING. In&onlonN RiiMtlerM a .Source of Im mense Trouble to Cattlemen of Went and Southwest. One source of Immense trouble to the cattlemen has been the calf thief, says Leslie’s Monthly. Many a large “outfit’ Vi‘hi err\r\f> niit nf hiiBinpRfe nn nremint 1 the “rustler.” Where cow herders have to ride the range for 50 or 75 miles they I are likely to be forestalled in branding a calf by some vigilant rustler whose little mountain ranch Is near the usua! iy grazing place of a bunch of cattle. Oi *»'• very possibly the puncher for the big 3C ranch has caught and branded the calf with its proper mark; and when many months later he rides on a yearling ^ branded BOB he has no means of know N' leg that the owner of the latter brand has deftly touched up the 3C with a running iron by the artistic addition of twe strokes and an added letter. I may be stated parenthetically In passing that more than one large "outfit” of to-day got its start entirely from “rustlcd”cat tie. In the more arid southwest rustling is not so common, because most of the water is pumped, and cattle get In the habit of coming home often to drink and can be watched more closely; but even there it is a factor of no slight import , ance.

The climatic history of the old world will repeat Itself in America, says the National Magazine. If forest destruc tion, at Its present rate of recklessness, should continue much longer, our conti nent will have to dry up. So will aD orator who should venture to urge that fact upon a boodle legislature. In this era of lumber trusts. But the fact re mains. and its significance may be in ferred from the experience of the Medi terranean coast lands, where thousands of god gardens have been turned Into Gehennas of wretchedness and desola tion. By tree destruction alone a terri tory of 4,500,000 square miles has been withdrawn from the habitable area of our planet. The physical history of the eastern hemisphere is the history of a desert that originated somewhere near the cradle of the Caucasian race—in Bac tria, perhaps, and, spreading westward and southward, has blighted the Edens of three continents like a devouring tire nnd h? now Krorrhincr wrfit rnngf ni Africa and sending its warning sand clouds far out to seaward.

RECORD-BREAKING RUN. - j Riiffineer Wan Offered Fifty Dollar! m Minute for Every Minute tiuined j Over the Schedule. There is a little story connected with ■ the record-breaking run of the Lowe special over the Santa Fe, Chicago to 1 Los Angeles, in less than 53 hours, I which is not generally known. * It is related thal Mr. Lowe offered s the engineer who hauled the train from c Han Bernardino to Los Angeles—on the home-stretch of 60 miles—the sum of $50 a minute for every minute gained over the schedule. Engineer Warboy turned the wheels at a 60-second clip for ' each mile to Pasadena, but had to slow down in the suburbs of Los Angeles. He pulled into La Grande station, Los An geles, just 62 minutes after leaving San Bernardino, gaining nine minutes on the * whirlwind schedule and thereby earn- t ing $450 extra pin -money. 1 The Santa Fe passenger department c will soon publish a pamphlet giving full i details of the swift flight of the Lowe a special, which in several instances ex ceeded 90 miles an hour. An average of nearly 43 miles an hour was maintained, in the face of having to cross four high ranges of the Rockies, and with little \ previous selection of engines or crews. Paper Charcli.

The action of salt, or chloride of sodium, as a fertilizer is sometimes very peculiar by reason of its apparently in consistent influences. It has the effect of checking vegetable growth and at ihe same time increasing the yield ol wheat and other crops to which it is suited, says the Southern Farm Maga zine. Mangel wurzel, beans, cabbages and onions flourish with liberal supplies o. salt. It is also highly advantageous tc the growth of asparagus. It is found .n every cultivated plant, and. there tore, may be considered, in small inan ities, as generally desirable for all crops. Lauds which are near the sea toast are always liberally supplied with his ingredient by winds, which carry it .roin the sea. According to Henry Tanner, of the .oyal agricultural college in England. >ne oi the most important influences that talt exerts cu vegetation Is due to its arising from the action of the chlorine which it contains. This is a very' im portant factor in agriculture, and when iully understood will be more generally utilized. In the ease, lor instance, of a wheat crop upon land that has been too tighly manured, the tendency is to pro duce straw' rather than grain, the grassy character of the plant being unduly en couraged.
