CLASS RINGS TURNED DOWN.
1 Rings Mad for A. and M. Sessions Only Plated Instead of Solid. 8-i-liU to the Kaslc. College Station. Texas, June The natural curiosity of a member of the .ulor class of the A. and M. College of Texas. led him to make a tost of t'tilor rlnsi ring a few days ago while lie waa working In the chemical lab oratory, with the result that be found It was not w hat It should be, and as a result the entire membership has turned the class ring back on the manufacturing Jewelers. Tho class ring Is a very neat design and the contract called for a fourteen karat gold production. When the member of the class who was of an Injuring turn of mind tested his lrtiK?rty and found that It was gold on the outside and brass Inside, oth ers sttrted an Investigation, and it was found that the brass run through 'the entire order of rings. Back to the factory went the entire lot and there is a promise that each ring will be replaced with one of proper weight and fineness. It waa fortunate for the boys they discovered thn Impost tlon before they had left college, be cause had the class become scattered It would have been impossible to have leathered all the evidence after school closed.

Teachers throughout the country have been In vited by the I'nited Statea Forester to cooiH-rate with the Forest Service In an effort to obtain more definite knowledge of the characterises of the most important forest trees of the United States. To do this It will be necessary to obtain a large number of volunteer observers who will col lect material on the time of leafing; blossoming, and fruiting of the vari ous kinds of forest trees. In his let ter Inviting the cooperation of the teachers. Forester Plnchot says: "Knowledge of this kind la greatly needed and will be of raroe from the atandiolnt both of education and of practical forestry. For educational purposes the results obtained for each sxcles. averaged and presented graphically by means of colored charts will be available to all who are In terested In the aubject, and particu larly to schools. They will form vir tual ''tree calendars," and will be val uable aids to nature study. "Children can readily be Interested in the actual work of obtaining rec ords. This uhould form an attractive outdoor feature of school work that should serve to develop the faculty of accurate observntlon, and at the same time to promote an Interest In forestry which may lead to a better appreciation of Its alms and methods. It may alno prove to be a profitable addition to botany courses for older students. "A study of this kind will be of great value to practical forestry, since the proper treatment of forests de pends partly iixn a knowledge of theMe characteristics of trees. For example, the time of year at which a tree leafs out and blossoms Is one of the indications as to whether or not It Is frost-hardy In a given region. and the length of time that a tree Is In leaf influences the growth It Is able to make during the season. Knowledge of the time when seeds of each secle ripen in various localities Is of great value to those who are collecting seed, since seed often deteriorate or is eaten by squlreis and birds if not gathered and stored as soon as ripe "Another result of this study will be more Intimate knowledge of cli mate as manifested by plant growth, for differences In climate are shown by plant life as well as by Instruments, and a preliminary idea ran thus be gained as to whether a given region is suited to a valuable tree which It is desired to Introduce there. Many such examples could be given, but sufficient has been said to show that the results of these observation swill be a renl help to jirartlcul forestry. In addition to theelr general interest and educational value. Volunteers will later be supplied lih rr.iBlIca I Inns and charts containing the Infor mation they help to gather, as a return for the services rendered. On request, the Forest Service will be glad to send form iin which to record data and a pamphlet containing full Instruction ns to the nature of the (.liM-rvatlotis and how they are to be made.

They open the wny for a hundred and one Ills, from rupture of the eardrum, r.;:i nlng from the ears, coughs and tonnlil tls to pulmonary tulcrcul'sls. A slight operation suffices to remove them. The baby suffer little pain and loses little blood. Out they come, nrd with them the overgrown, tonsils tint commonly accompany them. If th-v are suffered to remain they may never be discovered.

After wearing him completely out. making him receive and copy the equivalent of about three or rur hew-KiuitM-r columns.

In fact, I regard them as an anachronism. Men com municate with each other today from one end of the earth to the other by means of telegraph and post.
