dent said there seemed to be some
doubt throughout the country regard-
ing the meaning of the word "frazzle”
which In* used recently in referring to
the campaign by saying, "We’ve got
them beaten to a frazzle." He ex-
plained that it was a common word in
the south and he had used it when he
was a boy. "To those who do not
know what I meant by the word ’fraz-
zle,' ” ssld the president, “the best
definition I can give thenn is to refer

Nor is Mise Addams satisfied with
the mere surface Indications that fre-
quently mislead tuid deceive casual
ntiHcrvere. Growing hoys and girls
often appear strong and well undei
the most adverse circumstances, and
(Inis otherwise immune people are led
to believe that shop or factory life
agree* with them. Rut as time goes
on, t'dtoue toil undermines their
strength uud paralyzes their energies.
In a municipal lodging house in Cbl
cago Miss Addams and a number of
medical authorities have made a cure
ful study io learn what connection can
be genuinely establlshel between
those who are condemned to toil at an
early age and wornout men.
"It Is surprising to find,” says Mis,
Adduuia, "liow many of the men are
tired to death of monotonous lalue
mid beglu to tramp In order to
get away from It. as a business ma»>
goes to the woods because* ho Is worn
out with tlie stress of business life.
"This Inordinate desire to got away
from work seems to be connected with
tin* fact that the men have started to
work very early, before they had the
physique, or the moral stamina which
makes a ennu stick to his work wheth-
or he likes It or not. But we cannot
demand any of these things from a
growing boy. They are nil traits of
the adult A boy is naturally restless,
hls determination easily breaks down,
aud he runs away. At least this seems
to be true of many of the men who
come to the lodging house."
One hundred and sixty-one ministers

thereof had pledged themselves “ro

Seattle, Wash., Nov. 4.—There Is

ity of 20.000 ieet.

At a minimum valuation of $10 per
thousuand feet, this lumber, If sold
In the open market, would bring a re-
turn of 910,400,000.
As startling as these figures may
seem, they are substantiated by the
opinions of lumbermen who know lum-
ber from the ground up.
Think of It!
Almost 910,500,000 squandered ev-
ery twelve months In one State.
Tlie average man does not stop to
figure the waste in dollars and cents.
He may be interested in the state-
ment that a big slab fire has been
burning for half a century without in-
terruption, without pausing to grasp
i lie fact that the contents of that elai>
fire would have brought hundreds of
thousands of dollars were those odds
and ends manufactured into laths, odd
• lengths, or comhion lumber, and sold.
Preventable fires have been the
source of the greatest wu*te in Wash-
Many Forest Fires.
During the summer there Is a big
forest fire, nine times out of ten start-
ed by some careless camper, flaring
dark, ominous toward the sky; greed-
ily racing through the trees In an all-
devastating flood of hungry flames.
Thousands of dollars are Incinerated
in this crucible of fire every minute.
It Is all waste.
Then there Is the useless waste of
the woods; the top logs that are
thrown aside when the tree is sawed,
the waste in the stump, the timber
broken in careless falling, the small
stock left on the glotind; all of
which Is absolutely destroyed by the
first time the slashing Is burned.
The average annual loss from for-
est fires in this State alone Is $700,000.
Unit proper precautions this could be
Tlie Port Gamble mill at Port Gam-
ble, has a slab fire which has been
burning since 1853, without Interrup-

More than 90 per cent of the com-
mon lumber produced In the United
States is used east of the Missouri
river. Less than 5 per cent of this
lumber Is shipped from the Pacific
coast. There Is enough timber wasted
on this west coast each year to more
than supply all this common lumber.
The lumbermen say they cannot ul-
ford to cut this and ship it ea: t at the
present railroad rates.
And while the lumbermen are Warn
ing the railroads and appealing peri-
odically to the interstate commerce
commission to lower the rates on lum-
ber east, Washington Is literally
throwing away each year enough tim-
ber to build a board walk half way
ncross the continent.

An Oligocene Squirrel.
The oligocene is one of the divisions
of the ancient geological age known as
the tertiary. Recently the oligocene
rocks In the Itourbonnals France,
yielded two very interesting little fos
sils, one of a sparrow, the other of a
squirrel, which is almost Identical In
all its anatomical characters with the
common squirrel of the present time.
So perfectly Is the fossil preserved
that the hairs can still be seen de-
taching themselves In fine lines along
the back of the skeleton. The head is
By the President of the United States
of America—A Proclamation:
Once again the season is at hand
when, according to the ancient custom
of our people, It becomes the duty of
the pro: Ident to appoint a day of pray-
er and of thanksgiving to Goil.
Year by year this nation grows in
strength and worldly power. During
the century and a quarter that ha*
elapsed sine* our entry Into the circle
of Independent peoples, we have grown
and prospered lu material things to a
degree never known before and not
now known In any other country. The
thirteen colonlea which struggled
along the seacoast of the Atlantlo and
were hemmed In but a few mllos
west of tidewater by the Indian-
haunted wilderness, have been trans-
formed into the mightiest republic
which the world has ever Been.
Its domains stretch across the con
tinent Irons one to the other of the
two greatest oceans and it exercises
dominion alike in the arctic and troplo
realms. The growth In wealth and
population has surpassed even the
growth in territory. Nowhere else
In the world Is the average of Indi-
vidual comfort and material well be-
ing as high as In our fortunate land.
For the very reason that in ma-
terial well being we have thus
abounded, we owe to the Almighty to
show equal progress In moral and
spiritual things. With a nation, as
with the individuals who make up a
nation, material well being Is an In-
djspensable foundation. But the
foundation avails nothing by Itself.
That life Is wasted, and worse than
wasted, which is spent in piling
heap on heap, those things which min-
ister merely to the pleasure of the
body and to the power that rests on-
ly on wealth.
Upon material well being ns a
ioundation must be raised the struct-
ure of the lofty life of the spirit, If
this nation is properly to fulfill Its
great mission and to accomplish all
that we so ardently hope and desire.
The things of the body are good; the
things of the Intellect bet-
ter; but best of all are the
things of the soul; for in
the nation, as in the individual. In
the long run It Is character that
counts. Lot us, therefore, as a people
set our faces absolutely against evil,
and with broad charity, with kindli-
ness and good will townrd all men,
hut with unflinching determination to
smite down wrong, strive with all the
strength that Is given us for righteous-
ness in public and private life.
Now, therefore, I Theodore Roose-
velt, president of the United State*,
do set apart Thursday, the 26th day
of November, next, as a day of gen-
eral thanksgiving and prayer, and oo
that day, 1 recommend that the people
shall cease from their daily work and
in their homes or in their churches,
meet devoutly to thank the Almighty
for the man / and great blessings they
hare rc eived in the past, and to pray
that th**y may be given strength so
to order their lives as to deserve a
continuation of these blessings In the

The above Is only one of hundreds
who have written similar letters to Dr.
Hartman. Just one such case as this
entitles Peruna to the candid consid-
