rth Millions of. Dallars Annually
jjppfiele. Sah as" a Destroyer of
Crop Pests. "
B WASHINGTON, May 31.?The ornithologists
of the Department of Agriculture
have been making an investigation
of the economic value of the
Bob White, as a result of which is
now announced that bird iB "prob?s>-?Tvr
T"hr? mnst n?f*flll abundant.
is species on the farms."
Field observations, experiments
and examinations show that it consumes
large quantities of weed seeds
and destroys many of the worst insect
pests with which farmers contend,
and it does not injure grain,
fruit or other crops. It is figured
that from September 1 to April 30,
annually, in Virginia alone, the total
consumption of weed seed by Boii
Whites amounts to 573 tons. Some
pests which it habitually <io.
stroys, the report says, are the Mexican
cotton boll weevil, which darnages
the cotton crop upward of $15,000,000
a year; the potato beetle,
yrhich cuts off $10,000,000 from the
value of the potato crop; the cotton
worms, which have been known to
&atise: $30,000,000 loss in a year; the
pinch bug and the Rocky Mountain
8locust, scourges which leave desolation
. in their path and have caused
losses to the extent of $100,000,000 in
.. some years. The report urges measures.to
secure the preservation of the
Rob Whites in this country.

ON TIME
But Train .Way Down .South Was
Twenty-Four Hours late.
In many parts of the rural South
a railroad train which is not more
than three or four hours late is corniced
on time. Over in the White River
Country of Arkansas they tell a story
||g?-;or.a certain, little town which boasted
one train each way every day.
There being nothing else to run on
the track most of the time, the trains
. took their own good time about leavand
arriving at the various stations,
? stopping for instance long
enough for a passenger to run over
and make a call on his brother or
make a few purchases at almost any
station, or between stations, for that
matter.
One day a wild rumor reached the
town in question that the southbound
. . _ - |
v . train, due at noon, was actually gums
. to run into the station promptly on
BRk; the stroke of 12. There had been
" nothing in particular going on in the
i' town for some time, and the people
- were spoiling for a celebration of
some kind, so they decided to go
e .: down and celebrate the prompt arrival
of hte train. The town band
was engaged to blow its loudest as
> the record-breaking train pulled in,
. and almost the whole population of
the village gathered at the depot.
V1' Just as the town clock struck 12
: there sounded a shrill whistle down
i t the track, and as the last stroke
li ceased . to reverberate the engine
stopped with a snort before the little
red-painted station.
The band struck up its most tri
timphant music, after which the local
, orator arose to the occasion, mount'
' ed the freight truck and delivered an
;. impassioned speech of welcome and
felicitation. Then the conductor ol
the wonderful train was called on for
1 , a speech. He walked out on to the
platform of the combination baggajje
smoking and chair car, with a solemn
face.
~ "My friends," he said, "I wish 1
could feel that we deserved this outburst
of enthusiasm. I am sorry indeed,
to cast cold water on your jubiflation,
but truth, gentleman, truth imS,V
pels me to say that this train is just
s exactly 24 hours late."?Chicago Trijgj

THE POSTAL
FROM ST. LOU.
I got a close writ postal from my
Aunt Jemima Pug-h-7
Jemima's uncle Tody's wife; they re
living in St. Lou.
I'd wrote about a week ako and told
her like as not
We'd all be comin' out there when
the days got good and bot.
And this is what Jemima said, as near
as 1 recall:
"I'm glad to get your letter; 'twas a
score of years last fall
Since one of wou had written?let
alone to make a trip
To see us, and we'd rathed guessed
you'd given us the slip.
"Your mother, 1 re.meixiber well, once
held herself aloof
And wouldn't even hesitate beneath
our roof.
'Twas as much as anything that drove
your uncle West?
He said we'd always quarrel and to
separate was best.
Since then the world has prospered us
in basket and in store?
I'm glad your dear old mother doesn't
scorn me any more.
It's sweet to be forgiven by the one
you've never wronger
1 And recognized by those to whom for
years you have belonged.
"But yet your letter's vague about the
circumstances that made
Your mother change her notion. I'm
no better. I'm afraid,
Than when she used to snub me in the
days of long ago?
I 'wonder, oh, I wonder, if the fact
that there's a show
Out here with us this summer didn't
melt her heart a bit?
I wonder, oh, I wonder, if that couldn't
have been it?
Still, we're exceeding careful who we
shelter in our .ome;
I'm writing you this postal now to say
you needn't come."

PUZZLING WITNESS
Gave Testimony In Chinook and Demanded
Pay For Translation.
In a dispute between the Indians
and the cannery men a Mr. March
I was called as a witness, and the way
ill wjucu lie save 111& LcaLijuoii.,
proved puzzling to the lawyers.
"How long have you been in this
part of the country, Mr. March?"
"Forty. 45, 50, 50 years."
"Fifty-five years," said the lawyer,
and then, as if he were addressing
Christopher Columbus, he asked:
"And what did you discover, Mr
March ?"
"A dark-visaged savage."
"Dark-visaged savage, eh? Yes, and
what did you say to him?"
"I said it was a fine day."
"Fine day? Yes. and what clul he
say to you?"
Mr. March rattle off a whole yarn
in Chinook, and kept on, to the mirth
of the whole courtroom, until preemptoriallv
cut off by the gavel of
the judge.
"I asked you what reply the savage
made to - you. Mr. March. Please answer
the question," said the irate
cross-examiner.
"I was answering."
"Tell us what the savage said."
"That was what he said."
"Then tell it to us in English."
"Not unless I am commissioned by
the court to act as interpreter and
paid the customary fee."
The lawyer thought a momeut,
looked at the judge, who could not
resist a smile, and said severely:
"Mr. March, you may stand down.' ?
