For i some time the planting of trees has been maintained on those lands, otft to the 10,000 acres. Many hundreds of seed trees are added yearly. Private hunting and fishing associations are also giving assistance to the State in preserving the forests in Mifflin, Juniata, Pike and Luzerne coun ties. Tho largest manufactured pro duct of timber in this country at the prosent time is wood pulp, and to meet this increasing de mand a plantation of Carolina pop lar is now in process of develop ment in Pike county. From its fast-growing tendency this par ticular wood pulp is best adapted for purposes of experiment. It grows quickly in poor soils, and is fitted for making variousgrades of pulp paper. It is conducive to popular cultivation, like the wil low, and it is designed by Com missioner Rothrock, after the trees have had a few years' growth to distribute bundles of sprouts in all parts of the State. Exper iments will also be made on other rapid-growing trees as soon as practicable, with the view of meet ing the demand for wood pulp. Twenty years ago forestry was considered a fad. To-day the Na tional Government is interested in it,-and almost every State north of the Mason and Dixon line has to a greater or less extent become interested in the movement. New York has spent nearly 2,000,000 in forest reservations, and Michi gan, Minnesota, Massachusetts and many other States are active ly engaged in the work, and Penn sylvania has thus far spent less than 10,000, and has secured but 5",000 acres of arid land a mere fraction of what New York has under its care. These State res ervations, now contemplated, are not to be in any sense mere pri vate premises, as this notice now posted on the tracts will show: "This land belongs to the State of Pennsylvania. Destruction or removal of timber or other prop erty is forbidden. Lawful hunt ing and fishing are allowed on State lands but fires must not be started." HER INFLUENCE SAVED HIM. The nomad must go. We have no use for him. A few years ago when business was dull, money tied up and scarce, trade at a stand still with work scarce there was an excuse for tho tramp and we looked with pity if not favor on "Wandering Willie." But all this is changed now. There is no excuse for these "knights of the road." There is work in plenty for all of them. If they want a meal send them to the nearest contractor who will let them earn a meal. If they will not do this, a little solid starving will soon compel them to work. Try it once. No longer any need to feed them. ' They should earn their grub as we have all to do. An exchange says: "Tho wise grocer will be on the lookout for the food inspector. He is liable to walk into the store at any time, and he doesn't make his business known either, and you won't know who the pleasant gentleman was who bought a few ounces of this, that and the other, until called upon to explain why the pepper and ginger were so weary or the butter so highly colored. Those people are working under the food adulteration law." From the time that the mother binds the child's head till the mo ment when some kind assistant wipes tho damp from tho brow of the dying wo cannot exist with out mutual aid. All, therefore, that need aid have a right to ask it from their fellow mortals. None who hold the power of granting aid can refuse it without guilt. "Gur-ruls are niver satisfied," mused the janitor philosopher. "Whin they are in short skirts, they are crying fer long wans, an whin they git long wans they have to hold thim up." It is said that every widow in Washington is setting her cap for Admiral Dewey. This cannot be but a trifle disturbing to George, but still wo cannot blame the widows There are two reasons why some people fail to mind their own business; one is that they haven't any business and the oth er is thoy haven't auy mind. A young man, in company with several other gentlemen, called upon a young lady. Her father was present to assist in enter taining the guests, aud offered wine, but the young lady asked: "Did you call upon me or upon papa?" Gallantry, if nothing else, com pelled them to answer: "Wo call ed on you." "Then will you please not drink wine, I have lemouado for my vis itors." Tho father urged his guests to drink, and they were undecided. Tho young lady added: "Remember, if you called on me, then you driuk lemonade, but if upon papa, why, in that case I have nothing to say." The wine glasses were set down with their contents untwist ed. After leaving the house one of the party exclaimed: "That was the most effectual temperance lecture I ever hoard!" The young man from whom these facts were obtained broke off at once from tho use of strong drink, and holds a grateful re membrance of the lady who so gracefully, yet resolutely, gave him to understand that her guests should not drink wine. Mew Htm Good. The national debt of France, which has constantly grown larg er since the war with Germany, has forced the French, govern ment into some odd methods of raising money. Its latest is the selling of advertising space. As yet, the sale of advertising by the government is confirmed to a portion of a iH)st-paid letter sheet, but there is talk of extending it in various ways. Mr. Albion W. Tourgee, U. S. Counsul, at Bor deaux, France, says, in a report to the department of State.of this incursion into tho advertising field of tho French Government: "One half the sheet, of ordinary letter sizo paper, and rather poor quality is devoted to advertise ments, except a spaco reserved for the address, on which is printed a postage stamp. The letter is written on the other half of the sheet which is then ingeni ously folded and held by a gum med flap. The price is tho same as a postal card. By this means, the purchaser saves one-third of the postage and gots his paper and envelope for nothing. Nom inally the scheme is worked by a corporation, but as it sells post age stamps at one-third oif and has its wares for sale at the post offices and goverment tobacco shops, it is practically a govern ment enterprise. The new sys tern will evidently take the place of the postal card; it will decrease tho sale of postage stamps, but it is expected that the receipts from the advertising will enable the government to make a sub stantial profit out of tho project." What a howl there would be in this country if the government resorted to such methods, but fortunately Uncle Sam doesn't have to. M. R. Lorether, of Johnstown, met a stranger at tho Ilagerstowu fair and agreed to tako a walk with him. They were met by a man who told them he would bo obliged to search them for con cealed weajMrns, as they looked like suspicious characters. Lor ether agreed, and tho searcher took from him 185 and handed it to his companion to hold. The latter ran, and the searcher, say ing he would catch him, ran after him. Lorether has seen neither since. Before the Franklin County Examining Board on pensions an odd circumstance occurred. Two applicants appeared for a pen sion, both of the same name. They were father and son. One a veteran of the war of the Rebel lion aud the other a veteran of the Spanish war, who was Hhot through the leg by a Mauser bul let in the trouches in front of Santiago, Cuba. Both are resi dents of Franklin county. Tho wife of a Center county farmer dropped an earring while feeding her chickens recently, and the jewel was quickly gob bled up by one of the fowls. Un able to pick out the particular chicken, she killed them all, ono by ono 27 in number but failed to recover the earring. Then she began to look around and found it in the grass where the old hen had dropped it. Arkansan It's an ill wind blows nobody some good. Easterner How about tho cy clone? Arkansan Same thing applies. Last one went through here brought me a horse and wagon, a cow stable and a good, steady farm hand, things I've needed for nearly two years. Ohio State Journal. (Jlaii To Consent. She What did papa say? He I asked his consent to our marriage by telephone, and he re plied, "I don't know who you are, but it's all right."
