REGARDS LOVE AS A NERVOUS DISORDER Persons Afflicted Victims , of Hallu cinations. "In the spring a young man's, fancy" and o forth. But whaf is this thing called "love" which upsets folks so? It ha nothing to do with the affec tions, in the ordinary sense of the term. Psychologists are inclined to regard it as a nervous disorder. " Two young people meet. If total strangers, or only slightly acquainted, they are much more likely to "fall in love" than if long and intimately asso ciated. If they do so, the affections are not concerned; it is simply an at tack of the mating fever. When once love is recognized as a psychic phenomenon affecting the whole nervous system, the chief center of which is the brain, it is possible to understand the aberrations of intelli gence shown by sufferers and the ab surd performances in which they in dulge. A person in love is a victim of hallu cinations. He (or she) sees the object of regard in a distorted aspect. Explorers in early times were always on the eager lookout for curiosities', such as gionts, pygmies and people with tails. Above all, they were anx ious, to discover the fable'd androgyrts, which were said to combine both sexes in one individual The real androgyns .are everyday boys and girls, who up to the age of II or 12 are much alike physically and in effect neuters. A boy of 0 or 10 does not throw a ball well; instead of strik ing out with his fists bee pounds hia adversary or pulls hoir; his voice is like that of a girl. Soon afterward there are striking transformations, differentiating the sexes, which begin almost suddenly to look upon one another from a new angle. With sex differentiations come sex attraction and before long symp toms of the mating fever are liable to manifest themselves. An essential element of a passion is transitorincss. It passes, l nu two people who fall desperately in love may fmd themselves desperately unhappy in marriage. In selecting a- mate they have used emotion in place of judg ment.- Public ledger, Philadelphia. WILL NOT WITHDRAW GOLD. MOTHER CRAY'S SWEET POWDERS FOR CHILDREN. A fcie I' Restoring the Forests. Secretary Meredith's vigorous- and circumstantial statement in submitting to the Senate the report of the forest service on timtter depletion ought to prove a healthful stirnula to the use of such excellent opportunities for re forestation as arc afforded by the Mas sachusetts state forest commission, and the steady development of these op portunities. New England, Mr. Meredith points out, has but one-eighth the timber ir.-i that it had when the colonies were s tablished, while In the whole country three-fifths of the original timlter ha gone, and meanwhile what remains is being grown. The cast, which former ly provided the bulk of the timber which it used, now produces' but . ' a small percentage of it, the middle wvt is already importing soft woods from the Pacific and the south is fast reach ing a point where it ran supply only itself. Nearly two-thirds of the tun ber left is west of the great plains. The moral is pointed in this para graph of the secretary's statement i "Timber depletion has not resulted from the use of our forests, but from their devastation. There are 403,00.'), 000 acres of forest land of all clauses in the I'nited States, including burin' J, culled and cut over. Of this amount 81,000.000 acres is an unproducti.e waste. Upon enormous additional areas the growth is so small in anu it or of such inferior character that 'ts economic value is negligible. These ?orest lands will produce the timber required by the country if they ire kept at work full time growing trees. But unless timber growth takes the place of devastaation from forests fires and destructive methods of cutting, o"i consumption of lumber must drop to the level of European countries wli?'e wood is an imported luxury. Harvard university's model forest i 2,000 acres in Petersham, which after 13 years shows a stand of 1,000.000 more feet of marketable timber than hen the enterprise wa started, is one of the far too rare examples of what is being doing in the right cirec tion. Another notable example i the project of the northern N..'vr York de velopment league, which under the in spiration of an American officer who saw how municipal forests were main tained In France, has well under way the reforesting of a great stretch ft sand plains, once covered by great trees.

Springfield Rcpnbli-j fan. I Japanese Foreign Minister Corrects a False Impression. Tokio, June 24. Baron TakaJmsua. minister of finance of Japan and one of the best known financial authori ties, to-day made a statement havisi-j a direct bearing on reports recently circulated in the United States rela tive to Japan's financial status. Tie minister emphasized that there was n possibility of Japan's withdrawing he gold specie held in the United States as had been reported.. Baron Taka hashi's statement is as. followt: "The financial situation in Japan is in an unstable state at present, owing to the reactionary stage of the post bellum finances and economics which has brought about a tight money sit uation, heavy excess of imports and a depreciation of negotiable stcurities and general merchandise. But it is a matter for regret that the recent de pression .in financial circles led to ex aggerated reports in the United State and European countries. " "Perfect and clear understanding is a most important factor for the pro motion of international amiy and friendship. True and correct informa tion-about? the exact aspect of financial situations arc of Vital importance to the formation of closer economic re lationship between any two countries having economic relations. I under stand that in connection with the re cent financial depression in Japan va rious unfounded rumors and groundless reports found their way to tie Amer ican money market where rj.' ors had it that the Bank of Japan ha.' raised its official rate to ten per cent, tliat several Japanese banks closed their doors through failure or that Japan was going to withdraw her gold specie held in the American market. "Concerning these erroneous reports the Japanese government some time ago. instructed, flie Japanese govern ment's financial commissioner und the superintendent of the Bank of Jnpan in New York to issue a statement making clear the true aspect of the financial situation obtaining in this country. Through the statement issncd iy them. I believe, the American financiers and public have realized the actual state of affairs in this country. But I wish to take this 'opportunity to expiess my view about the latest financial situ ation in this country. "The economic situation in Japan has undergone a great change as the result of the European war. It is a change similar to that in American eco nomic circles only it is on a compara tively smaller scale and of limited pro portions." .... DENIES AID TO GERMANY In Sending Communications During the World War. Mexico City, July 25. Denial of pub lished charges that the national wire less station at Chapultepec was used (o communicate with Germany during the world war and that its personnel is German in its most important com ponfiits is made in a statement printed by- F.l Heraldo De Mexico. over the sig nature of F. Frias, the new director- general of the national telegraph lines. According to Senor Frias, the Chap ultepre plant was in process of con struction from the middle of 1017 to vthe middle of 1010 and, because rt could not function at full efficiency during that time, communication with Kouen was an impossibility. Senor Fries asserts that the only German connected with the station are employed ine shop annexe and are engaged exclusively in making new wireless equipment for substations, while Mexicans direct and operate the station. The Mexican wireless system.. Senor Frias states, consists of 23 stations, 14 on the coasts and nine in the interior. The coastal stations are mainly for moditime service, while the interior stations, with Chapultepec, are for the service of the government, especially when other lines of communication are cut, a contingency he declares hss been. unfortunately, common during the last ten years. LONDON RENT RESTRICTIONS GREAT HOAX ON AMERICANS Who "Believed They Had Badgers on Their Continent." London, July 20. R. I. Porwk, cura tor of mammals to the London Zoologi cal society, has discovered what he says is a "great hoax upon the Ameri cans, who for more than 400 years hsve believed they bad badgers on their continent." An American hsdger. brought here to make an "instructive comparison," was put in a cage with some British bsdger. The British badgers slept all day, the American badger all night. Dr. Tocock investigated and decided the American animal wa neither badger, skunk., stoat nor weasel. He said its skull and teelh were "wrong" for a bsdger, it Iked the scent gland, and it resemblance to the badger was to euperficial be considered it of a to tally different "tribe." Bill in House of Lords Affects Proper tion of Householders and Landlords. The new rent restrictions bill, which has received the assent of the House of Commons and is being considered by the House of Lords, will, if passed in to law, affect a large' proportion of householders and landlords. The basic principle of the bill is the protection of the tenant, but there are safe guards and benefits for the landlord. The bill only refers to houses in the metropolitan area, where either the rent or the rateable value docs not ex ceed 105 pounds, per annum. If for instance, a house is rented at 130 pounds and the rateable value is 10 pounds, the house conies within the scope of the bill. Both the rent and the rateable value must be above 105 pounds per annum to exclude the house from the working of the bill. In Scotland the figure is !0 pounls, and elsewhere it is 78 pounds. Here are a few interesting and im portant clauses in the bill: ' The landlord is empowered to make certain increases in rent. Where the rent of a house is below 72 pounds per annum he can make an unconditional increase of five per cent for one year and fifteen per cent afterwards. Where the rent is over 72 pounds he can im pose an increase of 15 per cent straight away. In addition, if the landlord is re sponsible for repairs, he may add 30 per cent for the first year and 40 per cent afterwards. If the landlord is only 'responsible for part of the re pairs the additional increase is ,a mat ter of mutual agreement, and if neces sary an appeal can be made to the court bv Che tenant or the landlord for a fair settlement. Three months' grace is allowed land lords to make a- house fit for human habitation, after which time the ten ant may obtain a" certificate from a sanitary authority, and the court may suspend payment of any increase until the necessary repairs have been executed ' satisfactori ly. Another important clause in the bill is that abolishing premiums, key money, etc., and making any suoh money paid after March 25, 1020. re coverable. A person requiring a pre mium or like payment is liable op summary conviction to a fine not ex ceeding 100 pounds. But this does not apply to a house let on a lease of fourteen years or more. The landlord can ask for and take any sum he likes. With regard to furnished houses or apartments the tenant may appeal to the court if the rent yields a profit more than 25 per cent in excess of the profit obtained during the year end ing August 3, 1914. These are the salient points of the bill before the House of I-ord's, Hut until it receives" the king's signature there is always the chance of amend ments.

Lee & Clara B. Shortt MsrifctelJ, Vt Physicians in Verment Dr. H. C. Tinkham, dean of the Col lege of Medicine of the University of Vermont, in an interview call atten tion to the necessity of providing the rural sections of Vermont with proper medical attendance and facilities. He believes the establishment of small ho pitals at diffeerent point throughout the state might bring some relief a maternity cases might be cared for there and doctors relieved of long drives and exhausting vigil. Another relief could be had by the employment of more trained nume who could attend the patient during the docWs absence, re lieve him from the necessity of mak ing daily visits and allow him to di vide his fields into sections to be visited once in two or three days. Dr. Tinkham says there is no. better opening for a doctor than in the rural sections of the state as many of the rural communities will start a young doctor in about all the practice lie wants and proves a lustrative field. If the doctor is of the right make-up be soon lieconies one of the leading ci i zens of the community. He adds that the tendency with doctor, a with everybody else, during the past few years has been toward the cities. That there is a tendency to the larg er centers in the state i indicated by the fact that 2 of the 3S practicing physicians of Windham county are k- cateed in Brattleboro and Rockingham, the two largest towns in the county. In only two other towns, Londonderry and Wilmington, are there more thin one physician, while in 13 towns of the county, with a total population of 6. 120, there is no physician. Undoubt edly the location of hospitals at Brat tleboro and Bellows Falls is an it t rat lim to physicians. In the wbol. county there i one physician to every 715 people, in Brattleboro one to evry 471 and in Rockingham one to every 517. Thi would indicate a larger field for the physician in the rural eoiin. although the physkian of Brattlelwf, 'and Bellows Falls have a Urge prac tice in surrmind'ng town.

U.S. MARINES NEVER GET THROUGH FIGHTING They Are in Various Parts of the World Settling Small Disturb ances, Guarding Government Property and Awaiting Eventualities. Washington, D. C, July 26. For Uncle Sam's marine the fighting is never at an end. While the Great War and their part in it is history, they still are busy in the far corners of the world settling small disturbances, guarding government property and awaiting any eventuality. In Haiti and an , Domingo nearly 4,000 "Devil Dogs,", as the Germans came to call them after Belleau Wood, are maintaining order and bringing recalcitrant bands to justice. . It is not a "play" job by any means and at times lately it has assumed the pro portions of real war. Casualty lists are not lacking and almost every week there come to headquarters here the names of "leathernecks" killed or wounded in clashes with bandits and revolutionaries. In China the legation guard of 275 marines at Peking is ever prepared for any emergency and for a time re cently it appeared that they would bo forced into action against Chinese revolutionists who were threatening to attack the Chinese capital. In Nicaragua another legation guard is maintained, while the marines are aboard American warship in Mexican waters prepared on short notice to'pro tect American live and property should thoir-services be required. -. j In Haiti, the corps' is represented by! 1,700, officers and men in two small regiment comprising the first pro- visional brigade. The brigade is con- manded by Colonel J. H, Russell and the two regiments by Colonels L. M. Little and R. C. Berkeley. Of late conditions in Haiti have quieted down to some extent and although skirm ishes with bandtis are. still a common occurrence it is said at neaaquarter that the marines "have' the situs'tion well in hand." In San Domingo an even1 greater force of soldier-sailor are on duty. Here 2,200 marines, organized ina three regiment, form the second pro visional brigade, commanded by Briga dier General Losan Feland. In the northern part of the island the fourth regiment, under Colonel Dion Williams, is taking thing easy but in the south i the fifteenth regiment is in the field in smsll detachments, chasing bandit and outlaw and quite often getting smell of gunpowder. The regiment is commanded br Colonel J. C. Breckin-I ridge. General Feland and hi staff have headquarters at San Domingo City and the third regiment is sta tioned there in reserve. Since the killing of th bandit leader Charlemagne and a number of hi fol lower, and the surrender of Benoist Pcrtraville. another bandit chieftain. San Domingo hss assumed a quieter aspect, headquarters' officials declare, and it i believed that there will be little more active fighting on the is land. However, the greater part of the brigade probably will be kept at San Domingo for some time to guard against any outbreak. Rear Admiral Snowden is military governor of both Haiti and San Domingo and the marine focres are directly under his command. No unusual occurrence have been reported recently by Captain .T. H. Underbill, commanding the guard at the United States legation at Managua, Nicaragua. Two companies,are main tained at this pt. ASCENSION A RENTLESS ISLAND. People Have no Taxes tc Pay, no Use for Money The island of ascension, in the Atlan tic, belonging to Great Britain, is of volcanic formation, eight miles by six in size, and has a population of about 450. It was uninhabited until the con finement of Napoleon at St. Helena, wlten it was occupied by a small Brit ish force. It is 250 miles north of St. Helena. Vast numbers of turtles arc found on the shores and it serves as a depot and watering place for ships. ! I ! . 1.,r a 111 a III appointed by ' the British admidalty. There is no private property in land, no rents, no taxes and no use for mon ey. The flocks and herds are public property and the meat is issued as-rations. So are the vegetable i grown on the farms. .' When an island fisherman makes a I catch he brings it to the guard room, w here it is issued by the sergant major. Practically the entire population are sailors and they work at most of the common trades. The muleteer is a jack tarj so are the gardener, the grooms, the masons, carpenters and plumbers. Even the island trapper, who gets rewards for the tails of ra,ts, is a sailor. The climate is well nigh perfect and anything can be grown. Detroit News. ii iT-nri " 'IM,"I7 K a I nt 6. vjpat. orr.
