If he Is singing through his millinery, no one is the loser. Although Danaher has offered hi3 team for salo every once In a while since he owned it, he ahvays said he would take nothing less than $10,000 for the entire outfit.

I The Norwich baseball men realize as well as the managers of the other clubs In the league that there is little chance of club succeeding in Norwich this year on account of the shift of the New London club to New Britain. ' The Norwich owners as well as the other club owners Believe that the best, place for the team to locate is Meri den in the heart of the circuit and which all think Is ready for baseball after a two year's rest. The Norwich owners believe also that there would be a great dal more interest in the team if Meriden peo ple became associated in the direction of It. They are perfetly willing to sell out or to Join with Mcrldpn men in running the team, and the last named proposi tion is the one that now meets with favor among those who have been ap proached on the matter. The roster of the Norwich club In cludes Bridges and McCarthy, catch eis; Halllgnn, Tuckey and Duff, pitch ers; Ptstor, shortstop; Accorsinl, first base; Soffel, second hase; Perkins third base; Cote, Golden and Duffy, outllelders. A meeting will be held at the office of lAttorney CJ. Danaher, who Is on the committee having In charge the Norwich situation for the league. Mr. Dannher said to-day that he would have the committee here Wednesday evening at the meeting and that in all probability representatives of the Norwich club will also be here. little use to its owner, although in the breed which is found in Asia Min or and on the tablelands of Tartary, this organ functions as a store-'.uuse of fat, and sometimes reaches a weight of 50 pounds. When viewed from behind, the animal seems ail tail and when this appendage reaches iu full size it is either fastened between two sticks which draw: on the grounJ, or it is suspended on two small wheels. Take another of our animals, a fierce litlo weasel, clad in summer in a coat of brown, in winter turning white, but always with a jet black tip to the tail. The ermine, as it is Incor rectly called in its winter coat, has an easy time of it sneaking on the mice and birds upon which it prays, but when a hawk takes after it in an open field In the sunlight, or an owl In the moonlight, it would have but hhort shrift with all Its sinuous leaping, were it not that the black tail-tip is so conspicuous that it constantly at tracts the eye and allows the pure white of the body to be confuwd witn the spotless snow. Even whoi ve place a dead weasel on the snow and look at It from a distance, we real ize how true this Js, and how valuab!.' must be the pencil tuft of blat hilrs to this little vermin who 5p?n3s his life In hunting or being hunted.

The first match of this ypar's professional billiard cam paign was begun here to-hight. George Sutton of Chicago, the world's cham pion 18.2 bilk line player, and George Slosson crossed cues at Siosson's Broadway academy in the first of a series of ton games of 400 points each Slcsson won by a scors of 400 to 312. His hish uns were 82, 62 and 53 with an average of 23 9-17. Sutton made runs of 91, 53 and 49, his average being MAKING OF NATIONAL FOIIESTS. There will be one measure before the 60th Congress providing for an expenditure that will not be an ex pense, for nationalization that will have in It no element of political dan gers, for the doing by the nation of a profitable business without a taint of socialism. We refer, of course, to the project for creating national for ests in the southern Appalachians and White mountains. , The new bill has been carefully prepared by officers of the government, in consultation with those best informed of the real condi tions" in the two sections. It calls for an expenditure of $5,000,000 $3, 500,000 in the South and $1,500,000 in New Hampshire and Maiin An able and comprehensive report M)m the secretary of agriculture has been made to Congress and justifies eVery phase of the measure as a well-defined public need. This expenditure will not be an expense because experience has shown that government holdings of forest lands, managed by an efficient forest service, such as the United States now hasi, soon become paying propositions. Moreover, the property this bill aims to preserve is a valuable one which is rapidly deteriorating be cause there is no one in a position to mantain It. We build battleships and fortifications at enormous expense, which Is a real burden upon the people to guard against loss In a problemati cal war. - Why should we not spend freely to protect our valuable property against the heavy losses to our nation al domain incident t,o "the savage wars of peace?" There is in this no trespass upon state or personal rights. The laws and rules governing the na tional forests -adequately protect the State in its jurisdiction and even in Its te.xing interest. ' Indeed, any one who studies "The Use Book" of the forest servce must be Impressed with the broad service must be Impressed with the broad beneficence of national for ests in the, relation to the people. The great issue before this country for the next miartef-century, although external political indications may not show it, Is to be the conservation of natural resources. This Is true because our natural resources have been shamefully '. wasted and we are now feeling this and beginning to realize the unhappy possibilities which the fu ture may have in store for lis if waste is not checked. I'pon these resources and their wise management the pros perity of a people absolutely depends. No amount of economic science can finance a desert. Therefore if our coun try Is to remain great and strong we must husband and perpetuate the source ot our prosperity, and among the chief of these "are the forests. Woodland and Roadside.

The Egyptians, Greeks and more especially the Romans, we know, took great pains to preserve a clean body; the bath tfas a great Institution in their dRy, when soap, as we know it, was not in vogue, but oils and frag rant compounds were used to anoint the body. The reference to "sope" in the Bible probably meant fuller's earth or wood ashes or alkalies, and these were employed, generally speak ing, not on the body, but for such op erations as the cleansing of wine and oil casks or marble statues. The juice of certain plants, which forms a lather was, however, employed for washing, and is still resorted to at the present day in certain localities. Though soap is not mentioned by Homer, who, how ever, refers to the use of cosmetics In the bath. Pliny distinctly describes a substance for beautifying the hair pre pared from good tallow and the ashes of the beech tree. Modern chemistry teaches us that soap is a true com pound of fat (or fatty acid) with an alkali, and it is evidrnt, therefore, that in Plinv's time soap was known which j ary expenditure of excess nervous en- ouid not have differed very material- BOWLING MATCH. 16.

TAILS AXI THEIR FSES. A cat never actually wags its tail. Why should it when it can purr? But. nevertheless, it seems to serve the erpy when the. animal is under great strain. For instance, when c-ircfu'ly stalking a bird or a man, as in the case of a kitten or a lion, the Hr .it the tail is never still for a momn ly In composition from the modern product As an industry, however, soap making on any scale was not known until some time in the seventeenth decease he had added t his century.

In U, biographical sketch ol ,Mte tfov ernor which the Herald publlshedvth other day we find the following enter, taming passage: "The early anecdotes of . Mr! .Hughes, as a rule, have ta do with, hi marvelous precocity. , , WhtT a lld many who came in contact with ifitnt j predicted a remarkable future. ,;;He could read when he was three and a half years old. At! the age of five he complained to his father that he was making no progress at school, because the teacher went over and Oyer things he already knew, and he ffiib mitted to his father a paper entitled 'Charles E. Hughes' Plan of Study.' The paper contained a definite plan of study, with the subjects carefully divided and put down for fixed hours and days. Later, when at school; he: was permitted several times to pass from one class to a hlgher grade without examinations or the comple tion of his term, so obvious was 1'hia superiority." 1 If Gov, Hughes displayed such su periority as an infant it is remarkable that he was not years ago the Presi dent of these United States and long iince laid away In lavender.

Peter Parley's v biography of that extraordinary personage is such a choice bit of literature that: we cannot refrain from quoting it here in Its entirety as a companion piecef;for the Herald's account of the precocious infancy of Gov. Hughes. Here it! is: "Heinecken, Christian Henry, was .born in 1721, at Lubeck, and died in 1725, at the age of four years and four months. So wonderful is the story tjold of this mental phenomenon that were .it not supported by powerful evidence, it might well be treated as a romance. ; ,He could talk at ten months "old, at twelve could recite the leading . facts in the Pentateuch, and at thirteen had acquired the rudiments of ancient his tory, geography, anatomy and the use of maps, and knew eight thousand Latin words.
