If th shingles or Interior nnish Is red cedai or If you have a red cedar chest It li possible that the wood antedates the history of this country by thousand? of years, says the Cleveland Leader. A Cleveland man is credited with bringing the first red cedar Into this section. W. A. Gelst, on a western trip several years ago, was attracted by the red cedar forests at Port Angelus Wash. He established a mill there and began shipping the cedar to the eastern market. Formerly the south era cedar was used In great quantities but it is the claim of Mr. Gefst that the product from the Pacific coast is growing in favor and the demand for It la increasing. It Is a most durable wood and it? use In a home guarantees that moths and other troublesome Insects will not enter. It is used for wainscoting man tels, cupboards, cabinets and especially for chests In which to store furs and clothing. Mr. Oelst exhibits a quantity of red cedar cut from a tree be est! mates to be at least 3700 years of age Three large cedars were found growing from a fallen log which was five and one-half feet in diameter. The largest of the three trees growing from the fallen tree was ten and one-half feet In diameter. By counting the rings In both trees indicates that the fallen tree, still sound, is nearlng its four thousandth birthday. Mr. Ceist Is an expert upon red cedar and goes In for the history of the wonderful trees of Washington and other coast states as a biographer would the data upon the life of some famous man. He surrounds a bolt of shingle cedar with an Interesting story, which goes back to the misty ages and something like reverence grows within the listener for this venerable work of nature. Unquestionably the red cedar is the oldest material used in the construc tion of the home and few materials will outwear it, It being nearly Inde structible except by Are. Bill niNft.

From the south No lo wag the only train to come into the Meadow City. Santa Fe trains yesterday afternoon arrived several hours late with the exception of No 9 which was caught in the blizzard, and of which no word had been re ceived hd to 3 o'clock ba after noon. All trains due in Las Vegas this af ternoon have been abandoned as they were indefinitely late. They probably will be run over the Belen cut-off, which route is south and east o! the storms in Kansas. The California Limited, which was to have come through here this morning, was run over the cut-off. Last night trains No. 2 and No. 4 did not come through Las Vegas but were sent over the cut-off. No. 8, due in Las Vegas af ter midnight last night, came in thi3 morning eight hours behind time. Up to noon today It was not known m Las Vegas whether the trains this evening from the south would be run over the Belen cut-off or through Las Vegas, though train No. 10 of this af ternoon was scheduled to come into the Meadow City at 5:45 o'clock, four hours late.

Wilkins, who was convicted of the murder of Mrs. Vernie Carmen, wjith whom he eloped from Kansas City In 1907, was hanged at San Quentin prison at 10:31 a. m. today. The body was pronounced dead and taken from the scaffold at 10:17. Just before being taken from the death chamber, Wilkins made the fol lowlngi statement to Warden Hoyle: "I want you to say for me, as my last words on earth that I am an Inno cent man, and have no fear of death. Express my deep gratitude to those who have been active In trying to se cure a pardon." Wilkins slept soundly all night. He dressed carefully and announced to his guard that he was ready. Two priests spent the hour preceding the execu tion alone with him. The condemned man walked with a firm step to the death chamber, where a small group of physicians, prison officials and newspaper representa tives were waiting. The cap and noose were adjusted and. the trap sprung in less than three minutes. A bit of metal, sharpened to a razor edge was found In Wilkins' prayer book af ter the execution. i We want you to get a bottle of Rex- with the extreme cold the passengers oil "Q ."

The first point of Interest Is sug gested by the title of the volume, "The Gold and Silver of Windsor Castle." Whenever a royal banquet at Windsor or Buckingham palace is described in the newspapers the writ er says that "the sideboards were adorned with the famous gold plate." In point of fact, there are only three pieces of gold plate In the Windsor collection, two of them a small snlver ten and one-half inches In din meter and a cup and cover nine and one half inches high, both dating from the first year of George IV, and It Is a melancholy fact that the former was made from a number of gold snuff boxes presented to the Duke of York by various cities and by the Univer sity of Oxford. All the rest of the "gold" plate Is really silver gilt, and Mr. Jones' book brings out the curious fact that most of the gilding, even of the silver pieces that had been made a century or two earlier, was done by George IV's goldsmiths, Rundell and Bridge. London Times. For Those Who Hear Not The hallboy had fairly split his throat shouting directions to deaf per sons who had called to see Mr. Schwartz. Mr. Schwartz lived in the fourth floor rear, right-hand apart ment, through the long hall and up the back stairs. It took a good deal of shouting to make some folks under stand that. "I never saw so many deaf people In my life," said the boy. "What on earth are they all running up to Schwartz's for?" "Mr. Schwartz has advertised a deat man's phonograph for sale," said a neighbor. "He Is very hard of hear ing. The phonograph was made espe cially for him. It has an unusually loud tone. Nobody but the hard-of hearing can live with such entertain ment. Mr. Schwartz, to save trouble, has advertised for a deaf purchaser." Learn to Stand Alone or You Will Become Strong or Original. Power is the goal of every worthjn ambition, and only weakness comae from imitation or dependence on oth ers, says Orison Swett Marden in Suc cess Magazine. Power is self-developed, self-generated.

An East Africa publication contains a description of a method of destroy ing rats, followed In Java, in which carbon bisulphate in employed. In carrying out the method a small quan tity, usually about half a teaspoon uk of the carbon bisulphide is poured in to the rat hole and after waiting a few moments to let the liquid evap orate, the mixture of air and vapor Is lighted, a small explosion resulting and filling the hole with poisonous gas, killing the rats instantly. Such a pro cess practiced openly might be objec tionable under some circumstances be cause of danger from fire resulting from the explosion and a field for in vention appears to offer itself to pro vide some form of fire-proof gun or explosion chamber suitably formed to be inserted in the mouth of the rat hole and adapted to enclose the ex plosion and discharge the resulting noxious gas Into the hole.

Data have been gathered in Ger many with reference to the distance Light of the Firefly. The statement that the light of fire flies and other phosphorescent animals Is produced without any sensible de gree of heat has often been repeated without any information as to the quantity of heat that would be required to produce a similar amount of light by artificial methods. This information is supplied by Professor Mcintosh. He says that a temperature approaching 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit would be nec essary to make a light equivalent to that emitted by an ordinary firefly. The enormous waste in all industrial methods of producing tight Is a mat ter of common knowledge, and the example of the firefly remains unimita ted by man. The very simplicity of the mechanism employed by nature hi phosphorescent animals Is baffling. Harper's Weekly. Deduction.

Never cut a limb from a fruit tree unles you know just why yoa do it. If the rabbits have only gnawed the outer bark, wrap the wound with cloth. Diversified gardening is the safest course for growers supplying local markets. "It is a bad mistake to neglect an orchard when It is not producing a crop of fruit. Seed potatoes, like table stock, should be stored as cold as possible without frost. A bruised potato is a short-lived potato. Handle them carefully, as if they had feeling. If air-slacked lime be id earth In which plants are potted It will keep worms away. An experienced pruner notes the di rection of growing branches and prunes accordingly. Put the potatoes designed for seed purposes In barrels or bins where they can be kept from the light Prune out old canes and raspberries and blackberries, and burn them. Thin the hills to three or four shoots. Cultivate, and add some manure to the soil. EVERYBODY Reads the Optic SOUTHERNERS ARE SCARED Charleston, S. C, Jan. 12.
