On October 1, 1915, all the boy scouts of Mount Vernon, N. Y., as sembled ar the Presbyterian church and heanl a detailed account of the life history of the Tussock mcth, one 01 our worst shade tree leaf feeders, This Insect overwinters in tne egg stage and from fall till spring the eggs may be found In email white clusters firmly attached to the bark of trees and protected places along fence rails and under the house moldings. Each troop was assigned a definite section of the city and each section was fur ther subdivided for the Individual scouts, to that the entire city might be covered. For nearly three weeks the boys scouted around gathering the egg masses and then the territory of each troop Ikvas shifted so that the work might be checked up, triple credit .being given for eggs collected during this checking period. Upwards of a quarter of a million eggs were collected by the scouts during the con test, and it would be difficult to state in dollars and cents the value of serv ice so rendered to the city. American Forestry. BEST TYPE OF STREET LAMP Eight-Panel Idea Has Many Advan tages Over Single Globe Which Is So Generally in Use. The especially attractive street lamp shown herewith is preferable, it is claimed, to vari ous types of globes, for when one of the latter is broken, to re place it costs sev eral dollars, in ad dition perhaps to the cost of an other light bulb, ..iiile Injury to this lamp usual ly Involves but one or possibly 11 'A panels, which can De replaced ior about 50 cents each. The top, which slopes slightly toward the sides from the center, serves to reflect the light downward, while many globes tend to throw more light upward than down. Fopular Mechanics Magazine. Las Selecting Site for Home. As the prospective home builder usually has a general idea of the type of house to be erected, this preference will have a bearing upon the site to be selected for it. For example, a lot totally unsuited for a formal structure might be an Ideal setting for a bunga low. Yet in a neighborhood of old fashioned homes the bungalow might appear so incongruous as to depre luie by contrast both its own value Afrd tbjit of Its neighbors. In any -ccvent, the land and the building should -produce a harmonious effect. More .over, if a lot is of unusual shape or is toot level, a home may be so designed 4hat these defects are converted into advantages. The sources of light, ?ade and nearness of surrounding buildings also have a bearing on build ing plans. p- iGmj- Untidy Streets. The New York Merchants associa tion has an antilitter bureau, that is now engaged in a campaign against dirty streets. The cost of cleaning up the refuse that should have - been dropped into the very convenient con tainers, but is just dropped In the street instead, Is enormous. School - children are reported as serious of fenders, for they bring paper from the rchoolroom and tear and scatter It ':pon the streets. That isn't patriotic not a "clL h A Tree for a Tree. The wood supply of the United States Is becoming low. Trees are be ing cut down ruthlessly and a large part of them are allowed to lie on the ground and rot. People who do such things should be dealt with severely by the fvernment. The United States should establish a system such as that In Norway and Sweden, where for every tree cut down another one must be planted. Exchange. Value of, Decency. Cleanliness In body and camp.

GEOB&E WRIGHT OSTEOPATH ! FORD SAYS HE IS STARTING ISE1V CONCERN. While the f i-50 flivver that . Henry Find is' preparing tomanufacture in numbers that nplre the head swim Li's r.tT yet heroine an actuality, auto-n-cljil'j 'dealers x ovor ths Saie are lockirjg tr : rr. to its advent with min TecIiiiKs of ;oy and disgust. They r'alivo that f.onie folks simply won t K- i.-.uht in a ?250 tin lizzie, and so will buy l.igher priced cars, and they also knew r.jjit there are thousands who don't care a lemon rind whac scit of a vehicle they go in just so they get thesre. While Ilonry Ford has turned ouz aovci'i queer looking products in his time, he rarely turns out anything that Is not v. o:th while, so the coming of the heap car will be looked for-v.-anl tc with interest by every one who finds i rosent car prices a little too IMgh for comfort. In speaking of the cheap car in Los Angeles a few days ago, Henry ForC sad: "There i.s no reason why the people all of then. Fhould not own mote cars," and I mean to make it possible for thoin to do so. I am confident I can build a better car, more durable and up-to-ti&te than the present Ford, for a cost to the user of $250, at most not to exceed $300. "My resolve to build a new car and form a new company came with a recent court decision, whereby I must distribue about $19,000,000 ac cumlated profits. My idea of a suc cessful business is one having plenty of ready cash. The new company will have larger capital resources than the Ford Motor Car Company, whose re sources are $17,000,000. "What will be done with the old company, I do not know. I do know this, however, the stock in it I do not own can not be sold to me. We arc now seeking sites for factories and the new concern will be in operation in an incredibly short time. Because of the great resources in materials used in the making of steel in territory tribu tary to Los Angeles, I have decided to establish here in the near future a ; mammoth steel plant to rival those of , Pennysylvania and Ohio. This plant j will furnish steel for the now Fords j as well as for Pacific Coast and for- eign trade." j WTiAn na AJain RtTPt is it Will nOt. !

Once in a while some one asks: Whats the need of another Liberty Loan now that the war is over?" Revenue from taxes will not be suf ficient to pay all the bills, so the people will be called upon to provide the money by subscribing to govern ment bonds. This money is going' to pay oil the army of producers at home the farmers, merchants, manufac turers and others. America had just begun to fight when the Hun decided it was time to 'quit. Allied leaders expected the war to last another year and the United States government was turning out ships, arms, ammunition and food to overwhelm Germany in one big drlre. Treasury officials have revealed thatin 1919 America would have had a tank at the front for every seventy five feet of line. We would have had ten tons of mustard gas ready for shipment for every ton Germany could produce. Thousands of batter ies of guns would have been in act ion for every one America had in 1918. Everything else was being produced in proportion. This gigantic preparation brought an early end to the war and saved thousands of lives. Victory Liberty Bonds will pay for this work which had been contracted for" and was be ing delivered when the armistice was signed. There are other purposes for which money is need. , Part of our army of 2.000,000 men must be kept in Europe until the ' peace treaty is signed. These soldiers must be fed. clothed and otherwise maintained. Then they must be brought home. The sick and wounded must be car ed for in hospitals. The army must be demobilized. There are thousands of maimed soldiers, heroes of the great war, who must be taught self supporting trades and given an oppor tunity to earn their living. This reconstruction work at home must be carried on. The job must be finished. The American people who furnished the money to win the war must supply it also to bring the na tion back to a peace basis. 1Y ONE IRE ROAD BUILDERS ARE NEEDED . .. t Opportunities for Returned Soldiers Both Skilled and Unskilled Labor Required. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) In resDonse to requests for informa tion, the bureau of public roads of the United States department of agricul ture has collected from the-hlghway de partments of the various states figures indicating the profitable number of re turned soldiers and sailors that can be used during 1919 in road construction and repair work. Of the 38 states re plying only 29 gave definite figures. They report they can use 11,637 soldiers and sailors as skilled laborers, and 91, 904 as unskilled. Under the head of skilled labor the state highway de partments were asked to report on the requirements for masons, carpenters, quarry bosses, concrete finishers, road foremen, roller men and superintend ents. Unskilled laborers were not The states fchut have thus far giveO" definite figures, with the estimated number of men that may be used, are : Alabama, skilled 60, unskilled 1,000; Arizona, skilled 48, unskilled 100 ; Colorado, unskilled 1,250 ; Connecticut, skilled and unskilled, 4,000 ; Delaware, skilled 100; Unskilled 1,000; Florida, skilled 685; unskilled 4,315; Georgia, skilled and unskilled, 4,000; Idaho, un skilled, 200; Illinois, skilled 2,500, un skilled 15,000 ; Kansas, skilled. 1,000 ; J unskilled 4,800; Kentucky, skilled 826; unskilled 3,500; Louisiana, skilled 110, unskilled 1,000; Maine, skilled 100 un skilled 1,000; Massachusetts, skilled, 150; unskilled, 2,000; Michigan, skilled 20U unskilled 2,500 ; Minnesota, skilled 1,200, unskilled 4,800; Mississippi, skilled and unskilled, 2,000; Montana, skilled 104, unskilled 644; Nebraska, skilled 2G7, unskilled 2,250; Nevada, ckilled 35, unskilled 265; New Hamp shire, skilled 332, unskilled 1,000 ; New Good Reads Between Annapolis and Baltimore Job for Many Men to Build and Maintain Road Like This.

EXPENSE OF CONCRETE ROAD Average Cost for "Surface Only Esti mated at About $12,300 Per Mile Filling Cracks. (By A. W. DEAN, Chief Engineer Mass. Highway Coramission.) The average cost of a concrete sur face, 15 feet wide, not including grad ing, drainage, culvert work, etc., but including the concrete surface only, is about 12,300 per mile, according to contract prices under- which con crete roads have been constructed by thl3 commission. Of course, the cost of grading, drainage, culverts, etc will vary greatly. So far as the concrete surf aco be coming more or less cracked and uli of holes after three or four years is concerned, I would state it is tnu that it cracks to a certain extent but if properly built, with expansion Joints, no holes will appear, and very few cracks, and the cost of filling the cracks with bitumen Is very slight GOOD GARDEN IS BIG ASSET Useful for Fresh Veoetables and Sur. p.'us May Be Stored for Use During Winter.
