Farmer Ephraim Brown perch ed upon the rail fence of his horse ■i.'s.stiire and bewailed the two sorrows of his life. In the distance, plodding leisurely down the lane, attached to a rope held by Squire Jefferson Ramsey, waa a cow that gave unbelievable quantities of the richest, cream iest milk. Brown longed and yearned for 'her as a man longs and yearns but once In life. The other crowning sorrow of his life stood nearer. It was the sorrel filly he had bought the week before from Elder Hezekia* Tilford. She looked like a win ner all through. But on each oc casion as Farmer Brown had hitched her to a ve>hle!<9, she had kicked the dashboard Into the next magisterial district. Squire Ramsey and the famous Jersey at the end of an extraordi narily long rope, and he walked so carefully and skittishly that Farmer Bro^n wondered. "Mornin", Bphralm," saluted the owner of the cow. "Are you as plum set on my Jersey as you useter be?" Farmer Brown thoughtfully combed out his patriarchal whisk era. "Oh, I dunno,"he said, non commlttally. The Jersey cavorted aroun-d and Squire Ramsey cried out with unnecessary vigor, "Sough — sough there, I say!" As the cow quieted he looked shamefacedly at hla neighbor. "Betsy 'lowed as how we bad too many cow crit ters," he explained.

The work which San Diego is tioing is the development of 7,000 iicres of land by the establishment of a municipal forest and In all other ways that will develop this tract so as to Increase its future value. For this reason It is im possible to figure the work accom plished in actual dollars and cents, as the benefit derived will not lie received for a number of years. The work consists of planting trees, clearing and breaking land, building roads and making Im provements, such as the laying of water mains and erecting build ings. The unemployed (they can all be classed as such, as it was simply a matter of whether they happened to be arrested or not), had a hand In all this work. Dur ing the winter, when the greatest number of men were in the camp, the work consisted of clearing land and planting trees. A good many acres of heavy brush land was cleared and about one hun dred and fifty thousand trees planted within a period of three months. The work accomplished was necessary work and as a whole was entirely satisfactory. At. least 90 per cent of the men were good faithful workers and responded heartily to the oppor tunity which the camp afforded them. Many of the men worked as hard as if they had been receiv ing a full wage, although they were told that the amount they rceived was not as a wage, but simply as something which would place them in the position to once more earn a full wage.

With both owners somewhat suspicious, yet eager, the trade was quickly consummated, and Farmer Brown, suddenly gener ous and with a twinkl* in his eye, offered the loan of a buckboard. "I'll let you hitch her up, squire," he aaid, "but you'd bet ter sit in the back end, 'cause theres the klckingeat hoas in Jaa per county." "All right, Ephraim," retort ed Squire Ramsey, with a grin, "and you'd better handle that 'ere Jersey with mitts, 'cause she's done swallowed six sticks of dy namite." ''Great worm-eaten hoss col lars!" cried Farmer Brown. The squire, still grinning, clam bered into the buckboard. In stantly the sorrel mare released her hind j feet as If shot from a catapult,* hurling the dashboard into the clover field. The sorrel began to back and pluage about. "Rustling fodder stacks!" cried the squire in terror. "Keep that volcano o-f a horse away from that cow." He was too late. With a final triumphant effort, the sorrel plumped her hind feet into the fat sides of the blue ribbon won der. There was a roar, a puff and a soft thud and splatter.
