Did Not Need Wood, but Couldn't Es cape It. "I don't need wood," said Holling brook Jones as he got out of his-wooden bed. lie stepped on a rug that bad been woven in wooden looms. He pressed an electric button held in the wall by a wooden support, the wire to which had been wound on a wooden spool. The wall of- the house, the paper on it. were made of wood. His valet came holding his master's coat on a wooden hanger. "Diaw my bath," said Jones. As he slid over the smooth porcelain of the bathtub he repeated, "I don't need wood." but he forgot for the moment that the pattern from which the mold of the tub was made was of wood. That morning his valet shaved him with a razor kept in a woollen case. He walked down a flight of wooden stairs, looked out of wooden casements and took great pride in the highly pol ished mahogany banister as his caress ing hand slipped over its smooth sur face. Mr. Jones sat in a richly hand-carved wooden chair and at a wooden table on which his breakfast was served. He ate some wonderful griddle cakes from flour gristed in mills .constructed mostly of wood. The flour came from grain reaped with machinery mostly of wood, the grain came from seed sown by a device mostly of wood, by a farmer who had drawn the grain, in a wooden wagon in bags that were wood products. Jones had maple syrup on his griddle cakes and washed the cakes down with coffee brewed in pure water that sprang from the ground in the cool shade of the for est sweet, crystal-clear water that can only be compounded by the alchemy of the forest floor. But Mr. Jones being a self-willed man and strong in old-fashioned ideas, said again. "I don'fneed any wood," as he lighted his morning cigarette with a ...ai,l flint horned because it was of wood. He had a nice warm ride down town in his limousine, the seat and top of which were wood. He read the morning jwiper half through and 'dropped it. remarking disgustedly, "That's made of wood, too." and then '.eflectively, "Wood certainly does play h large part in my affairs." That day the omnipresent wood prob lem confronted him again and again. The pen in his hand was principally wood and the check he signed was also made of wood. He observed he was completely hemmed in by wood. " the lloor, the" desk, the picture frames, the ceiling. He boarded a tram at 11 York and sinned.

(Continued from T'-ge One) yesterday were well repaid by the ap pearance and beauty of the various rooms exhibited as well as by the many valuable suggestions that one received from the appointments themselves and the manner of arranging them. Much credit is due to the district chairman, Mrs. Stickney, who planned the general outline of the rooms, also to the various ladies who made the actual selections of furniture and appointments and who so tastefully arranged them. Perhaps the highest compliments should be given to the vari ous business firms and- the bunks who entered into the project and made the demonstration possible, A rope railing divides the line of rooms on both sides of the hall from the space which the public uses in inspecting the various exhibits. Immediately on the right of the entrance a typical modern hall is shown with its wall table, bearing two candlesticks separated by. a jar of flowers, mirror and Windsor chair. , An Oriental rug and a door mat complete the apointments of the ball. The hall opens directly into the living room which is very tastefully furnished. An atmosphere of " coziness and conven ience is nt onee suggested. The appoint ments compromise a fireplace with a clock and candlesticks, a Davenjwrt with silk pillows, an armchair matching the Davenport, upholstered brown wicker chair, gate leg table with runner showing books, magazines, candy jar and an elec tric lamp with a silk shade; piano on top of which is a basket of flowers, book case with books, table desk with furnish ings, waste basket, Windsor chair. A rug is placed before the fireplace near which is a Tape Cod firelighter. A read ing and a desk lamp with parchment shades also are shown. The windows have net curtains with overhang of sun fast material, all in the brown tones. rl he wall paper suggestion for the hall and living room is a shade oi tan. These two rooms were arranged by Mrs. Harold L. Whitney and Mrs. K.' It. Lynch Adjoining is a sleeping room showing a four-post bed. dresser, chiffonier. Wind sor roc ker and straight chair, a cost tinier displaying a blue gown, two dresser lam' of etched glas-. various toilet articles and vellow rugs with black and white stripes The window trimmings are net material with yellow sunfast overdra penes. 1 he wail paper suggestion is striped yellow with border to match. . .

The window draperies are net with rose sunfast overhat.finsrs. The wnll p:m"r suggestion is of ivory tone with a rose design in the border. . I Immediately adjoining this r l is the nurserv continuing an ivory crib, desk :ind chair, play table, floor cushions elec tric heater, and a eongolcum rug of blue figured design. Included are various phi v things such as a rocking horse, dolls, ruber animals, teddy bear, etc. The two sleeping rooms ami the nursery were arranged by Mrs. II. (J. Barber. The dining room presents an unusuallv artistic appearance with its dull finish mahogany furniture, consisting of an oblong table, six chairs, buffet, china cabi net, serving table, tea wagon ami the service of china, glass and silver. A handsome chime clock and vases adorn the china cabinet and a chest of silver is on the serving table. On the buffet are an inlaid trav, silver basket containing fruit, silver candlesticks, tUver water pitcher an 1 other articles. Pots of ferns adorn the dining table and the -tea wagon. A silver candefabra suspended over the table furnishes a soft light. An axinin ster rug covers the floor. This room was arranged by Mrs. C. C. Pitts. The pantry and supply closet show cupboards for supplies, a Leonard clean- able refrigerator ami a congoiejim run. Space for the floor brushes, sweepers and ,,iooiw also iire shown. The kitchen is a mod'l one with its grey enamel ( Hen wood; range, kitchen cabinet containing sup plies, stool, rocking chair, white enamel table and a generous display of pots, aluminum kettles and enamel ware. The Miggested wull effects are tan enamel paint finished with white enamel mould ing. A tireless cooker, enamel sink, a garbage saniean. bread mixer and other kitchen utensils complete the display. The kitchen and supply closet were ar ranged by Mrs. C. L. Stickney. The laundry comprises a display of set tu lis. electric "washer, towel rack, clothes hanger, ironing board, clothes basket and washing supplies. A congoleuni rug is used for the floor. In the center of the hall, a space has lieen set off depicting the flowers and shrubs, that may be used to good effect on the exterior of the house. A minia ture home is shown with its lawn and driveway; ferns and other plants carry ing out the tree effects and begonias em phasizing the green lunlge effect. The lower part, of the interior walls of Festival hall have been covered with brown burlap to add to the general ef fect. .A large sign calling attention to the advantages of the Co-operative Loan association has been erected on the front wall. The Twin Stnte (Jas &. Llectric Co.. and Ilorton I. Walker are showing vari ous electrical devices which are not only Ial)or saving but add to the appearance of the home. Creen Hill Parkway and the C. 15. Crowell Kxtension both have exhibits and Ilolden ami. Martin show cuts of houses and complete house plans. A player piano for the musical concerts occupies a position on the right front stage and a victrola is similarly placed in the opivosite corner. At the entrance, a register of all those attending the expo sition is being kept. The.-? la So Much to Be Done. Jso wr.y has been found for rnnking heroisia easy, even for the scholar. Labor, Iron labor, is for him. The world was created us an aud:enoe for him ; the atoms of which it is made are opportunities. Read the ;.ti-.'orm-ance of Bentley, of Gibbon, of Cuvier, Geoffroy Saint-IIilalre, Lapliee. "He can toil terribly," said Cecil of Sir Walter Raleigh. These few words sting and bite and lash us when we are frivolous. Let us get out of the way of their b.Vws by making them true to ourselves. There is so much to be done that we ought to begin quickly to bestir ourselves. Ihls day labor of ours, we confess, has hitherto a certain emblematic air, like the an nual plowing and sowing of the em peror of China. Let us make it an honest sweat. Let the scholar meas ure h's valor by his powfr to cope with intellectual giants. Leave oth ers to count votes and calculate stocks. Emerson. a Rofiectlon.

Fisheries Bureau Hopes to Get Data on , , Ocean Currents. In connection, with.. its studies of the distribution . and movements of larval fishes and other marine organism, the J'nited States bureau of fisheries has undertaken the investigation of ocean current of the North Atlantic coast and for that purpose has deposited about 1.5(H) , drift bottles. These have been dropped, on three lines, '"running, respec tively, for a distance of about 75 miles off Cape Elizabeth, l."0 miles seaward from Chatham. Mass., and 150 miles seaward from Sandy Hook. The sta tions are at intervals of about one-half mile, two bottles being dropped at each, with drags at different depths, the'bot tles being Weighted so as to float with but a small part of the neck 'exposed. Lach bottle contains a card offering a reward of L'5 cents if sent to the bureau of fisheries w ith . information concerning the date and location at which it was lound. More than I'OO of these cards have already been received. A statement issued by the bureau says that the investigation is being conducted in co-oieration with the international committee on marine investigations, on which, in addition to the United States, the t anadian ami Newfoundland jgovern ments are represented. . A Vermont landmark. was the plonsant harvest, time, and the It au- us cooi ana still. In the glory of an autumn-tinted jaunt When J journeyed up the valley on the load from Jacksonville Ilk the picturesque surroundings of Vermont. . At a junction in the clearing, where the highways branch away. There had stood an ancient boulder through all, time Which the hand of the Almighty had deposited one day To commemorate His handiwork sub lime. To our old associations there are inci dents which mock. There are senrimeiital sympathies ' which burn. 1 he temerity of mortals had removed massive rock. So tit motors could negotiate turn. this the There is pleasant retrospection in the the ciiarms ot early date. The stability of mountains and sky : But I sighed in disappointment at the irony of fate In progression of an era geared high. Prom the oxcart to the motor there in is comfort and delight; Down the boulevard we hasten on our way i lo re is mucii wo nns, i lancy, in our all too rapid flight Which our ancestors have cherished in their day. There are landmarks in Green Moun- ains, there are legends which shall last Down the corridors of time forever more, ' (if the pioneers in homespun, and the heroes of the past. And the good old-fashioned latch string at the door. So I drifted into dreamland and I saw a cavalcade . Who were passing where this boulder once had stod ; They were shades of generations who rested there or prayed At this welkin wayside pulpit in had the wood. There were sunny-headed children, who had clambered there in play. And had fashioned fairy structures bright as gold. Like the castles of their fancies, which were spirited away. They have vanished from their treasure-land of old. For the ardent and confiding, this had been a trysting sjot. Where thev told their love in whispers full of thrills ; And old Haystack in the distance seemed I to consecrate their lot I With a constancy abiding as the hill.. I And I sojourned back in memory to the days of long ago. To the flintlock and a frontier all a flame ; To a band of sturdy warriors who re pelled the foreign foe While the women spun and harvested th grain. And I heard the marching legions in ha biliments of blue. When the rbel flag at Sumter scorched t he breeze ; , There were gallant lads in kaliki, too, intrepid brave and true. Who had marched to deeds of valor overseas. So I paused in silent homage in this quiet .woodland haunt. To this landmark wmch had typified a race.
