FORECAST JUNE June gets its name from Juno, who was at the head of the feminine sec tion of the Roman pantheon. The ~i were no women in those days like Mrs. Pankhurst and Jane Addams, and the necessity for someone to do that work gave to mythology the ,-ei t-brated Queen of Heaven. There had not yet appeared a real woman equal to society’s needs. There were good women enough, but women as a srx had not associated in clubs, there was no suffrage movement, and nobody had thought of settlement work. In the absence of any living person who met the requirements of human pro gress, the Romans conceived a my thical character which served until someone could show up. Their my thology was thus indispensable to them, and without it Rome would have fallen much sooner than she did. What finally did cause the fall of Rome was her habit of casting her fortunes with what she regarded as the winning side after wars had vir tually been fought. Refusing to take sides as long as the issue was in doubt she was always prompt to throw her legions to the support of the victor once she made sure who would win. This led to a great deal of bitterness among her allies, most of whom felt they would have won anyway, and it proved in the end the undoing of the most powerful empire the world had known. Caesar saw the inevitable end of such a policy, and did his best to make his countrymen see it. He charged the Romans with being short sighted, and assured them that unless they quit sharing in the spoils of war without taking any of the chances it would not be long until Rome would fall and the once proud population would be selling bananas. Some of the more outspoken advocates of the safe ty-first party in the Senate bitterly resented Caesar's denunciations, and when he left the chamber after a par ticularly fiery prophecy of what the end would be he was set upon and assassinated. Mark Antony, who made the oration at the burial of Caesar, called it the funeral of Rome. He said war was a sport, and that unless one entered it upon a sports manlike basis, one would better stay! out. He predicted that the Goths and | Vandals, with whom the Romans had , an alliance which they had just re-, pudiated for the purpose of getting on , the right side, would eventually sack , Borne, and they did. At any rate, the festive calf Will do the military trot. And lovers in their glee will laugh At man’s intolerable lot. The tender blueness of the skies Will make the heart of earth re- ' volve, And something in a maiden’s eyes Will shake the bachelor’s resolve. The gentle fragrance of the rose Will sweetly blow through human hearts, And Cupid, fighting on his toes, Will rake the populace with darts. The staid school ma’am will calmly pitch Herself at someone in the roof, And the agile dominie will hitch The widow and the plunging groom. There is no other season quite tl.e same for sentimental things, for old time ballads in the night, for pledge-t, presents and for rings. The hired man will softly steal across the mea dows with his lute, the phonograph will break a wheel intoning arias to suit, the widower will softly woo around the county in his Ford, the man who thought his task was through will get a son-in-law to board, the cook will lightly scorn her pay and wed a watchman twice her years, the man who gives the bride away will shame the crocodile for tears, the smack of love’s ecstatic kiss will float around among the greens, and men will sail the sea of bliss regardless of the submarines. You can’t restrain the, force of love, though all the kingdom come to mix; it is a business far above the trage dies of politics. The moon was made for gentler things than moving troops and making war, and in the end the blooming kings will come to know what it is for. The music of the katy did will fill the quiet apace of night, Over Mountain and Plain ▲ single telephone connected with no other is about the moet useleea thing in the world; but connect it with one other and both at once beoome serviceable. The more telephones connected together through an exchange, the more valu able is the service of each Individual telephone. Likewise, the servioe of a telephone eacohange having no oonneotlon with the exchanges of other communities is of very little value. To furnish servioe of the highest •fflotenoy and greatest value every exchange must be connected by Long Dlstanoe lines with every other exchange, and every telephone with every other telephone. These Long Distance lines, in this western oountry, must neoessarlly traverse rugged mountains and desert plains- Hues expensive to construct and costly to maintain. In the territory of this company, 82,010 miles of Long Distance lines connect our 367 exchanges and 237,000 telephones. That is what makes possible Universal Service.

I the busy whippoorwill will bid the ‘muses hearken its delight, tho hoy behind the soda fount will show us I how to hold the fort, the joyous golf er will recount the pleasant triumphs of the sport, the fisherman will pack his kit and start for where the fish are thick, the country boy will pro\e his grit by going swimming in the | crick, the sweet girl gruduate will rise and calmly tell us what is what, and making war upon the flies will keep the swatter on the swat. The binder will begin to hum, I With college help and dinner bells; With thoughts of opulence to come I While Turkey holds the Dardanelles. The farmer, dashing here and there, ! Will keep his forces on the trot; One cannot know if one may dare Trust Allah very long or not. The field will be a hippodrome, With farm teams galloping around; And when the men set out from home They’ll have to do it with a bound. What agriculture needs at beat Is spinsters in their short white pants, And trusting Allah for the fest The industry will take a chance. The first twenty-one days of June will be under the influence of Gemini, the twins, the third sign of the zo diac. It is likely that this will en able the Kaiser to see two sides to the submarine question and that our side will be given a little kindlier con sideration from the submarine than it has been receiving. The last nine days of the month will be under the in fluence of Cancer, the Crab, the fourth sign of the zodiac. This is an excel lent time to back out of anything you can’t make good, and it is probable that we will withdraw our implied support of Gen. Villa at that time. The moon will be full on the 26th. And then July will add its mite To armies slain and vessels sunk, And all good people in the fight Will softly blow upon their punk. Knew Nothing of Table Forks.
