Turn the colts out In a yard for exercise every fair day. Xever leave them out in storms. Xine times out of ten when a horse has a tantrum, somebody else has one first. Don't let that somebody be ycu. If your horse is developing a shoe boll, do not neglect It until It Is large and hard, but get some liniment and begin to use it at once.

From Sunday schools and other or ganizations also, which hold an an nual celebration around a g-ayly trimmed evergreen for the benefit of the little ones, has come the question whether it Is consistent to urge con- servauon or rorest resources and then to cut millions of young trees every year to afford a little Joy in the pass ing holiday season. "Yes, It Is consistent and proper that the custom should be maintain ed," has been the answer of United States Forester Gifford Pinchot in every case. "Trees are for use, and there is no other use to which they could be put which would contribute so much to the joy of man as their use by the children on this one great holiday of the year. Cut Llitlo Figure. "The number of trees cut for this use each year is utterly Insignificant when compared to the consumption for other purposes for which timber is demanded. Xot more than four million Christmas trees are used each year, one In every fourth family. If planted four feet apart they could be grown on less than 1,500 acres.

MEXICAN' PATRIOTS WILL BE TRIED BOY TONED BY AWFUL HUM Almost Covered with Eczema No Night's Rest for Nearly a Year Feared Lifelong Disfigurement All Treatments Failed and Limit of Endurance Seemed Near. Los Angeles, Cal., Dec. 29. It Is expected that the three Mexican "pa triots," Magon, Villarreal and RIvert, who have been held 'incommunicado' In the Los Angeles Jail since July 7, will be placed on trial next month on the charge of violating the neutrality laws of the United States. The prls- n oners, two of whom, ere editors and mo imiu a. conetje proiessor, are members of the organizing Junta of the Mexican Liberal party, and are alleged to have been engaged in fer menting an armed revolution against the DI82 government from the terri tory of the United States. In an appeal for funds for the de fense, which has been circulated throughout the United States, it Is admitted that "after President Diaz destroyed the right of a free ballot In Mexico, the Liberal party called up on all Mexican citizens to fight for their constitutional rights." PERFECT RECOVERY IS DUE TO CUTICURA "With the exception of his bands and feet, my son Clyde (thirteen years old) "was almost completely covered with eczema. Physicians treated him for nearly a year without helping him any. (While they were very kind and did all in their power, yet nothing seemed to re 'lieve him. And I had tried many rem edies sent to me by kind friends but they ail failed. His head, face, and neck were covered with large scabs which he would rub until they fell off. Then blood and matter would run out and that would be worse. Many a time he looked as if his ears would drop off. Friends com ing to see him said that if he got well fas would be disfigured for life. "When it seemed as if he could pos sibly stand it no longer, I decided to try Cuticura. I bought a cake of Cuti cura Soap, a box of Cuticura Ointment, and a bottle of Cuticura Resolvent. I used them in the evening and that was the first night for nearly a year that he alept. This may sound exaggerated to you, but in the morning there was S great change for the better. In about six weeks you could not have told that be had ever had an y t hi n g wron g wi t h hi ra. I treated him twice a day for six months and at present he has a fine complexion and not a scar on his body. This story may seem overdrawn, but neither words nor pen can describe Clyde's suffering and how he looked. Our leading phy sician. Dr. . recommends the Cuti cura Remedies for eczema.

Roanoke's forty-four churches are arrayed against the forty-five saloons of the city in a struggle which means life or death for the latter, and which will culminate tomorrow In a local option election. The closing dav of the cam paign has been one of the most ex citing in the history of Roanoke. Both the "wets" and "drys" have waged f-nergetlc campaigns and the result of the contest Is in doubt. sized farm each Christmas should not be a subject of much worry, when It U remember that for lumber alone It is necessary to take timber from an area of more than 100,000 acres every day of the year. "It Is true that there has been se rlous damage to forest growth In the cutting of Christmas trees In various sections of the country, particularly In the Adirondack and parts of New England, and In these very sections me damage through the cutting of young evergreens for use at Christ mas Is lnfinltesmal when compared un me loss or rorest resources through fires and careless methods of lumbering. The proper remedy Is not to stop using trees but to adopt wiser methods of use. It Is generally realized that a cer tain proportion of land must always be used for forest growth. Just as for other crops. Christmas trees are one form of this crop. There is no more reason for an outcry against using land to grow Christmas trees than to grow flowers." forest Service Uphold Custom. The forest service upholds the Christmas tree custom, but recognizes at the same time that the Indiscrimi nate cutting of evergreens to supply the holiday trade has producotl & bad effect Upon many stands of merchant able trees in different sections of the country., Waste and destruction usually result when woodlands are not under a proper system of forest man agement. Foresters say that it Is not by denying ourselves the wholesome pleasure of having a bit of nature In the home at Christmas that the prob lem of conserving the forests will be solved, but by learning how to use the forests wisely and properly. The rav ages through forest fires must be checked, the many avenues of waste of timber In its travel from the woods to the mill and thence to the market must be closed, and almost number less Important problems demand at tentlon before the Christmas tree. Germany is conceded to have the highest developed system of forest management of any country, yet its per capita use of Christmas trees Is greatest. The cutting of small trees for Christmas Is not there consider ed In the least as a menace to the for est, but, on the contrary, as a means of Improving the forest by thinning and as a source of revenue. It Is therefore, constantly encouraged. There is little doubt but that the time will come when the Christmas tree business will become a recognlz ed Industry In this country, and that as much attention will be given to It as will be given to the growing of crops of timber for other uses. This time may not be far off, for It is al ready understood that only through the practice of forestry, which means both the conservation of the timber which remains and carefully planned systems of reforestation, will it be possible to supply the country with its forty billion feet of lumber needed each year, as well as the few million little trees used at Christmas time. .spena lour jioikiny vacation at Pno Koblea.
