State Oil Inspector Neal calls atten tion to the&langcr In using kerosene oil to start tires In cook ami heat intf stoves. "A number of deaths from this cause has resulted bo far this j car," he says. People do not seem to understand that kerosene when healed to a temperature above 121 de Kieis produces Just ns deadly and l-owcrful an4 explosive vapor as gaso line. The only difference Is that gaso line produces an explosive vapor ut nlMMit 70 desree8 of heat instead of about 121. Thrown In jv hot stove, w in l her containing a fire or Hot, ker neiio will almost immediately pr fince the explosive vapor. Kerosene should under no circumstances lie poured into a stove from a can. "If people must use kerosene for kindling or 'hurrying up' tires a small inaiitity should first be poured in a u t ;uid thrown from that In the stove. If a blaze Is then needed to ignite it use long paper taper and keep at a f-;ife distance, when touching it off. This process will procure t ho desired results und even then there Is apt to be enough excitement for the average individual."

Anti A CHRISTMAS REMINDER L'very year about this time begins the stream of holiday money which Btart in the Copper Country and flows eastward Into almost every nook and corner of Europe. Pounds English, Turkish and Greek; Kronors, Finmarka and Roubles; Marks, Kronen, Llres and Francs; these nre a few of the many kinds of currency into which the sturdy Miner of the North transmutes his earnings and sends them across the. ocean to add to the wellfare and happiness of the loved ones In the Old Country. There are probably some peoplo in Houghton and Keweenaw Coun ties who have never availed themselves of the unexcelled system of transfer employed by , The First National Bank OF CALUMET In sending funds across the water and into the remotest corners of the earth. Few who have ever given it a trial have gone elsewhere.

One solitary passenger pigeon, end ing her life ut the Zoological tardea in Cincinnati, is to-day all that remains of un American species that early in the last century swarmed over the con tinent In Hocks numbering billions. With the death of this sole survivor of a bird trloe, whose nesting places often covered hundreds of square miles, there will soon disappear the last trace of the wild pigeons that huve been slaughtered by the million by men who fed their hogs upon the carcasses they could not earry away. Though It Is too late to save this species, special efforts are now being made by the Audubon workers to bring about the restoration of other birds of economic value that must otherwise share the same fate. At one time passenger pigeons were prolific in the copper country, espe cially In the South Range district, where thousands of them were killed every season. Can't Find a Bird. For many months systematic search has been made throughout the con tinent by officials of the Audubon as sociation for relics of the once prolific Passenger Pigeon. Members of the organization headed by professor C F. Hodge of Clark university have made a standing offer of $l.f,oo to any one discovering a nest of this species; but, though thousands have been try ing eagerly for the prize, not one sin gle claimant has appeared. In response to a recent inquiry by T. Gilbert Pear son, secretary of the National Associa tion of Audubon Societies, the author ities of the Cincinnati Zoo have Just furnished the last chapter in the tragic tale of these butchered birds. . The "Last of the Passenger Pigeons" Is n female, 18 years old, whose mate died recently without issue at the age of 24. As late as 1877 what is now known to have been the last nesting place of these wild birds was found In Mlchl gan, where their nests thickly cover ed the trees over an area 28 mile long and 4 miles wide. Residents of New York declare that in 1S".0 they Hocked over Manhattan Island in such numbers that they obscured the sun nnd that ships loaded In bulk with the bodies of these birds lay at the wharves selling them at a cent apiece. Audubons is quoted as observing a roosting place of w ild pigeons In Ken tucky early In the last 'century that extended 40 miles and was 3 miles in width. On its edges, men with guns, nets, clubs anrt torcl slaughtered the risisting birds, each often bagging f.oo in one day. When the wholesale butchers could carry away no more, they let .loose droves of hogs to fatten on what was left. About 1N" this treatment began to thin the ranks' of tho passenger pigeons, till two years ago It was discovered that only seven could be found on the whole conti nent, four it Milwaukee and three in Cincinnati. Other Birds May be Saved. Declaring that practically all the gulls nnd terns in America today have survived solely through the work of protection nnd restoration at their reservations, leaders of the National Association of Audubon Societies are now appealing to the people of this country to support the work of pre serving dying species of native birds which they have already begun. The Upland Plover, Cabot's Tern nnd the Least Tern, they assert, can now be saved to the nation by quick emer gency measures for which special funds are to be raised. The work of restoring the Wood Duck and other game birds that are threatened with the fate of the Passenger Pigeon is to be undertaken by the Audubon work ers with the support of the sportsmen of the country. Sad as is the passing of the Passenger Tlgeon, its lesson may avert the extinction of other val uable species, it Is declared, If the American people rally nt once to save their remaining bird resources.

Chanukah, the Jewish feast of the dedication, also culled "the feast of lights", will be celebrated for eight days beginning lXo. 25 this year. Prayer, songs and special services enter into observation of this feast Gifts are given the children and can dles are burned in the homes and syn agoguos. Tho first night of Chanu kali one candle is lighted, the second two, and so on. This is a custom which has been observed by the Hebrew people since 163 U. C, when the first Chanukah was celebrated because the Assyrians, who has forced their way into Jerusa iem, were driven .out, and with them the immortalities they had Introduced and forced upon the Jewish people in their effort to llelltnize them and make them bow to Jupiter. The tem ple where they had set up false gods was rededlcated by the Jew to Je hovah, hence the name Canukah, meaning 'the feast of dedication." The gradual lighting of the candles Is symbolic of the -gradual 'growth of the light In the world, meaning truth, intelligence and knowledge. It might also be symbolic of the gradual In crease of light ns the days prow long er from the beginning of Chanukas until the June solstice. How Xmas Comes Dec. 25. It Is interesting in this connection to note that students of the church history of .England find that the Christmas of our church was placed en Dec. 25 because the Romans, who brought Christianity Into the Prltlsh isles, found that, although they were able to Christianize the Anglo-Saxons, they could not persuade them to stop the Yuletide celebration. Tills was because the days were growing longer. They, therefore, grafted the Christmas celebration on to that of the Yuletide, nnd finally the Anglo-Saxons forgot their heathen festival In that of Christmas, although their dato was retained. l y!

( TORCH LAKE NEWS j HUBBELL COUNCIL MEETS. Usual Business for Month Disposed of Last Evening. The usual business for the month was disposed of at the regular meet lng of the Hubbell council last even ing. The bill of Haggen and Hubbell, electrical contractors for repair work on the burnt out motor of the pump ing plant, amounting to $87 was sub jected ti considerable criticism and was finally allowed after $17 had been deducted. It developed that tho cost of this work Was almost ns large as the sum paid by the village to have the entire piece duplicated, Tind as this did not seem reasonable, the deduc tion was made. The reports presented showed that during the month of October, 1,132.193 gallons of water were pumped from the electrical pumping station and that during November a total of .843. 450 were pumped, the total cost of the same being $38.25. The report of the treasurer shows that there is only $1.10 in delinquent taxes on the books at tho present time, this being considered an excep tionally good 'showing. ' FORESTERS WALLOP F. O. E.
