Hardwood lumber dealers ot the country showed extreme consideration tor the public welfare in their annual meeting by declining to change Inspection rules on the ground that adoption ot a new system ot grading would advance, prices. Of course no alteration of standarda could by any chance work in the other direction. The dealers, it to said, felt that lumber pro dttcers in aettlnc a fair return now and it would not be just to add anything to it Bard It, with hardwood lumber selling at the rate of from, 20 to 60 cent per board toot. Some body connected with the trade must be doing very nicely at such figures. in general it is sste to assume when people' engaged in any given line of business agree that they are getting a "fair" return they are really getting too much from the standpoint ot everybody else.

Seldom does a deliberately foreign name receive such welcome or such permanent popularity. The Greek is respon sibility for the earliest source ot Corinne, the name coming probably irom rersepnone s mie Kore. a maiden, which was applied to the Boetian poetess, who won a wreath of victory at Thebes. . But unlike many of the ancient favorites connected with the brightest lights of the old world, this name persisted and when am bitious writers, eager for a new name for a heroine, delved into early history, Corinna was salvaged and put into current use.. Mme. de Stael created the brilliant Corrine, heroine of the novel of that name, and insured her Immortality. French damsels beyond number adopted the name, while in Italy, Corinna appeared in an early cnronicie 01 tne middle ages, relat ing the story ot the lady best known as. Rowena, daughter of Henghist The warm-hued carnelian is Corinne's tallsmanic stone. It will protect her against danger and dis ease and will give her courage and poise.
