How to Lengthen the Uneven Legs of

Following is n Indiana contributor's
advice tor lengthening the uneven legs
of tables and chairs:
Tack a piece of cork to the short leg,
using small tacks and driving them well
into the wood. They will sink way in
and so will not scratch the floor and the
cork itself will act like a rubber pad.

Mexico City, Feb. 10. Exchange on
New York Saturday at' Mexico City
closed at 3 for 1 and a short time pre
viously touched 3.10. It is explained
that the increase was not due to the
demand of concerns having foreign pay
ments to meet so much as to the fact
that the shippers of henequcn, who have
heretofore distributed their exchange
business, have opened an ollice of their
own, thus creating something like a
corner. Bankers believe the exchange
rates will increase still further. Cer
tain diplomats have been unofficially ad
vised that the government is planning
to issue fiat fractional currency and also
impose a special tax on ail investments
in the federal district.
Chief interest in the military opera
tions centers in plans of the war de
partment for a campaign around Tor

portance is rerted from Tepic on the
west coast and 'a skirmish lias .occurred

d'affaires, and of the instructions of the
Mexican foreign office to desist from at
tacks on President Wilson, El Imparcial,
under a three-column first-page head
line; '"The word of Wilson lacks honor
as does lie hiniBelf," comments on the
recognition by the United States of the
new Peruvian government , within four
days after the success of the revolt.
This was done, the newspaper says, in
face of the declaration from the White
House on March II. 1013, that the pur
pose of the I'nited States is to deny
sympathy to all revolutionary govern
ments. From this the conclusion is
drawn that "Yankee processes work only
along the line of evil passions."
With similar prominence, El Imparcial
publishes an account of the alleged fail
ure of 150 banks in the southern I'nited
States because of President Wilson's and
Secretary of State Bryan's "iniquitous
Mexican policy." An effort is made by
the newspaper to show that President
Wilson's policy is disapproved by the

STATE AND NATION TO JOIN.
In Protection of Forests from Destruc
tion by Fire.
The rfport of a conference on forest
fire protection by the various states has
just, been issued by the federal depart
ment of agriculture. This conference,
was attended by representatives from r.U
the New England states,' New York, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Vir
ginia,'" West Virginia, North Carolina,
Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, and
The meeting was called to discuss the
section of the Weeks law which author
izes eo-operation between the federal
government and the states in protect
ing from lire forests situated on the
watersheds of navigable stnytms. The
conference considered not only the de
tails of carrying out the law, but the
results which the law has accomplished
and the promise which it gives of future
The various subjects discussed includ
ed patrol work, co-operation with pri
vate owners of timbcrland, and eo-operation
with other protective agencies and
with railroads. The conference is said
to have established beyond a doubt the
great value of tire lookout stations and
towers, and the imperative need ot telephone-
communication, as well as other
permanent construction work, to Inoluda
roads and trails. In all of these activ
ities the value of co-operation between
the various agencies was emphasized, and '
it was brought out that efficiency could
be raised and expenses lowered, when,
state, nation, lumber companies, and pri
vate individuals work together in ac
cordance with a plan evolved by all,
It was shown that the disposal ,of
the slash left after lumbering means the
elimination of a great source of danger'
from fires. In some cases it was shown
that it was best to dispose of this ma
terial by burning it under supervision
when there was little danger from fire.
In other cases it was proved to be suffi
cient to lop the branches, so that all
would lie close to the ground and decay
In the discussion of actual lire fighting
it was pointed out that the secret of the
suppression and control of fires in the
woods is not essentially different from
that in the city, and lies in having a

Fifteen years ago this month the D. A. Perry Real Estate Agency was established, with the sole assets of two chairs, one desk, a disposition to work, and the confi
dence of our acquaintances. - The first year was a hard one, and every year since we have found it necessary to work but we have grown. 1913 was our banner year; over
6,000 acres of farm property being sold through us, aggregating about $203,560.00, besides a large volume of town and city property, stocks of goods, etc., etc., making our
sales for the year amount to considerably above 300,000.00. Our six sub-agents deserve no small credit for their part in making this the most successful year in our
history. We wish to thank all our patrons for their confidence in us, and we shall aim to merit their future business. And, while we do not expect to do all the business
which is done in our line inthis section, we shall appreciate any and all business which you may see fit to give us, and heartily pledge ourselves and our fifteen years' ex
perience to handle it in such a way as to bring the best possible results.
Good salesmanship does not consist-wholly in making a sale of property regardless of other conditions. If the buyer and seller always knew where to locate each
other, there would be no use for the third party, but here is where the offices of the real estate man come in; getting the buyer and seller together on terms advantageous
to both parties. A satisfied customer is the best advertisement any business can have. With our large and constantly growing list of farm and other properties, extending,
as it does, over the various sections of the state, the prospective purchaser has little difficulty in making a selection, as to price and location. And, vyith our sub-agents
working with us, as well as our connections in Boston and the West, together with our extensive advertising (having expended more than $10,000.00 in the past 10 or 12
years), we are able to reach a large number of people. In fact, last year nearly one-half of our farm buyers came from outside the state. Only a few weeks ago we sold a
$5,000.00 farm to a purchaser from Montana who became interested in Vermont farm property through one of our catalogs, which we send into nearly every state in the
union, as well as Canada, MexicoItaly, Switzerland, Scotland, and England. We propose to make "Real Estate a Quick Asset" our slogan for 1914. t)oe wants to sell his
farm: Jones wants to buy: we get Doe and Jones together. Perhaps Jones lives hundreds of miles from Doe, but our advertising, our sub-agents, or possibly he is on our
waiting list of buyers; we find him and the deal is closed even before your neighbors know you want to.sell.
