The general ef fect of vegetation is to purify the air. The -leaves of plants and trees Inhale carbonic acid gas, the poisonous ele ment of the atmosphere thrown out by animals in breathing, and gives out' oxygen, the life-giving element, with out which animal life cannot exist. The constant action of the leaves of plants is one of the natural agencies by which the proportion of carbonic acid in. the air is always kept at a minimum. This element, carbonic acid, without ¦which plant life could not exist,* is poisono'us to animal life; not as is usually sup posed, because It is in Itself a poison, but because when more than a cer tain proportion of it Is In the air res piration becomes impossible. It is not a poison to the stomach or blood, but is deadly to the lungs. Yet though it is true that the general influence of vegetation is to render the air pure.. It is also true that house plants should never be kept in sleeping rooms, nor indeed In any rooms generally occu pied, if the matter of ventilation Is not carefully attended to in them. Every green leaf on tree or plant sucks In during the sunshine carbonic acid gas from the air and breathes out oxyl gen, but this is only in the day tlmel During the night this action ceases and the reverse process goes on. that Is,' taking oxygen and giving out carbonic acid gas. Harm done by plants in houses Is caused, especially when they are blossoming and at all times at night. - SIEGE OF PLEVNA— Subscriber. City.

When Mrs. E. E. Boyer of Potts ville. Pa., went to rake the fire in the kitchen range a few days ago she was startled by an angry hiss at her fee,t. Stepping back she narrowly avoided a large blacksriake which wriggled across the floor. Remembering that there wa3 a fickle in the cellar, she secured it and attacked the snake. It did not retreat even after she had made a sweep with the sharp blade, taking off part of its tail. The fight continued for sev eral minutes, until Mrs. Boyer. by a lucky swing of the sickle cut off. the reptile's head. The snake is supposed to have crawled from a mass of rank vege tation near the house, through the open door, and to have coiled itself beneath the stove. Miss Mary Reynolds of Sibley, Iowa, has accepted an offer to go to China and become tutor to the two grand nephews of the Empress Dowager. Her home will be in the .family of a missionary, but her work will be at the royal palace. FJ)f(/1 U//}CC/l<?EJOppEI^ DONT'S - FOR MEN THIS WOMAN HAD NO FEAR OF SNAKE WOMAN WILL TEACH IN ROYAL PALACE ¦ mr R. OSTRANDER, a mountaineer and pioneer, in a recent letter to / \S\ e C^Yi, su ?? OTts a position we have often stated and affirmed. He -iYl t-ys t hat our forests are to be preserved from destructive fire only by the conservative use of fire to destroy underscrub and duff. We inherited our forest* from the Indians, who practiced this conservative use of fire, and hiade the forests like a park, open and free of "copse. The Indian method is practically followed" by scientific foresters, who in the public forests of Europe keep the ground clean of dead trees, undergrowth and duff, using fire prop erly, when necessary, 'for that purpose. . r Our forests were subject to lire long before they were seen by civilized man. The Indians evidently sometimes fired when it was too dry or let the fire set b?yen<i control. In the Mariposa big tree grove is a giant sequoia •which shows by the flattening of one side extending far. up the column, that it »vai once wounded by fire, but has completely repaired the injury and cov ered -it with thick bark. Standing within a few feet of it was a large sugar yir.c. nhicb was felled in the interest of the sequoia, which it was crowding. The ring* of the tcgar pine were counted and its age, was found to be 800 j ezre, yet *t had no ms.rk of fire. . This proved that the great fire which smote the sequoia must have oc curred before the sugar pine existed, probably a thousand years ago. The .'iCifloii being non-resinous 2nd hard to kindle, a fire that would have in :;:etr~ vseh sn injury upon it would have destroyed the pitchy sugar pine had •it been standing at- the time. But, notwithstanding such ancient fires, our fr*re5ts were -ixe'il preserved 10 as. and their protection from destructive fires ::•.•>• he sought by conservative firing. * Thi* year onr mountains have been entirety free from forest fires. The 'reason fr»r this doubtless ;s that the general conflagrations of the last five .yezn> have cleaned the forest floor of duff and underscrub, at the same time destroying ratltidas of £ae trees, so -that this year there is but little for fir% to feed cpoa. If ike /s*nie' area had "been conservatively cleaned by fires it would be equally safe sad no trees would have been destroyed. FOREST PRESERVATION. HELP. WABTEB.

' When that host of Southern orators comes North to aitack the President and make a personal campaign we hope they will follow Hill in telling the people that it is dangerous to have a President who has no strings on him. The Republican National Committee should rec ogv.izc good service and offer to pay Mr. Hill's campaign expenses. He is doing good work. ..; ... "• *T^HERE are two Hills in the campaign against Roosevelt. One is the •I high financier, the other the low politician. The difference in their alti *1 rude indicates no difference in their purpose, to wage a personal cam- a.gamst the President. The politician, the New York Hill, has opened iis up-State campaign in a speech at a county fair. He argued at length £&st the President, using as his text this statement: The President, ?r-.ror.gh himself and his late private secretary, manages and directs every cfetail.of the campaign, while experienced political managers of long service ia the party, are brushed aside and ignored." Thereupon Mr Hill appears & attorney for the ignored politicians, and bewails their sad fate at great • "They probably did not know how badly they are being abused until he 5;atcd their case. He appeals to them to rise, throw off their lethargy and Kick hi ? h. All this is amusing. It is also distinctly Hilhsh. Little Dave, who nonage's Parker's campaign, knows how he feels when he is not managing something in politics, and he i. unable to conceive how a candidate for the Presidency can get alang without takingorders from somebody else • His candidate shows no symptoms of independence. He irmtes Sheehan .rmd Murphy and McCarren to call and see him and tell him what to do. He even invited the notorious Bill Dcvcry to come into counsel with him, and Bill went. Then the KeW York World, never accused of beuig ~sty nice about such things, held up its hands in astonishment and exclaimed, "I his is the limit." Under Kill's management no -manager" has been too unsavory for conation by Judge Parker, and HiUis the happiest politician in>ew .York. The campaign on his side is going to .suit him exactly. The man rgcrs" are rrnning it, and he is running the managers JUnder his adv.ee Trdse Parker is piling up obligations to the Murphys, McCarrens and Dev irys which will have to be redeemed if he reach the White House, and in Mtutii fonxi Hil! will get a rakeoff from them all. Z*'O He \« entirely correct in charging that President Roosevelt is independ ent nf the influences which have already surrounded Judge Parker, and taken a' mortage rpon his political future. The President has no intermediary be tween him and his party and the people. He needs no go-between, for his ¦¦"rtaster motive is "-2 square deal." - The politicians and managers of his party understand perfectly that no "o-e has a first lien upon him, and that in his regard equal merit has equality, "J0& more no man can ask. Mr. Hill has quite unintentionally paid to the President the highest. of compliments. The spirit of the times is against inner c : rc!cs" executive sessions of managers, and covert promises, which mort age a victory to a few. The people want to feel that their contact with a candidate is direct, and that their access to a President is to be the same. President Roosevelt takes the responsibility of his campaign. He advises "with 'every member of his party who seeks counsel with him, and holds all ooors open to the people. If there be in the Republican party men of the character of. McCarren and Devery, they instinctively avoid him, for *e is ttW a nan with whom they can do business. This marks the capital difference between President Roosevelt and Judge Parker. The Judge is a man of good character, but is in bondage to the idea of politics with which Hill has I'oiiS inoculated New York. He gives himself up to the/'managers," and if '•accident should make him President he would spend a wretched four years in frying to satisfy the Murphys and Deverys, who are standing guard around Jinn urder the captaincy of Hill. . ii; . '¦¦ It must be said for Hill, however, that the rule he applies to the President lie applied also to his own party, to its disruption. In 1892 Mr. Cleveland was .nominated against Tammany and Hill's "snap convention," and he carried .S'ew York without shaking hands with Bill Devcry or giving Dick Croker the freedom of his sideboard. For this Hill and the managers never forgave him. Hill seems to have made up his mind that such a thing shall not hap pen agaiu. So he has found a candidate, filed a chattel mortgage on him, and goes forth to tell the people that President Roosevelt is a dangerous man^ be cause'no one has a lien upon him and none can get a chattel mortgage on him.. HILL'S ATTACK. A Tyrolese clockmaker recently in vented and patented a unique alarm clock. It is simply a new and original application of the alarm to the clocks made in the Black Forest, possessing a' certain peculiarity which he designates the Alpine Waker. .Whenever in the solitudes of the high pastures the cowherds of the Tyrol and Switzerland desire to .com i.un'cate with one another over distances too far for the voice to carry they maks use of a sort of wooden drum, upon which they strike with a wooden ham mer., thus producing a sound which is distinctly audible over a long distance. This custom is the father of the idea. Just above the dial on the clock will be found a wooden hammer.- which, actuated by the alarm movement, beats upon a thin board, raised an inch from the face of the clock, as upon a drum, producing a sound of remarkable .in tensity, more thrilling indeed than that of the ordinary metal bell. . . * ; JUDGE PARKER, After His Telegram and After His Speech.
