The prospect of a "Chantecler"
drama In this country should arouM
great hopes among the musical com-

The couple who were married on a
Western Maryland train going at the
rate of 40 miles an hour evidently
wished the matrimonial knot tied fast.
A six-year-old girl In Brooklyn has

There are a great many swollen tor-
tunes In this country, but investiga-

can be traced back to the Belgian hars
craze that caught so many hopeful
ones a dozen years ago.
Lord Kitchener, England's big gen-
eral, knows what good soldiering is,
and having seen West Point he gives
high praise to the military academy
as one of the best of training schools.

An English novelist Is In this coun-

"Fret not thy gizzard!" Is the mot-
to that Dr. D. K. Pearson. Chicago's
millionaire philanthropist, gives to the
world, at the age of ninety. It's s
comparatively easy motto to live up
to, when you are a retired multi-mil-
lionaire, but It's harder when you
don't know where the money Is cont'
ing from to pay the rent.
There is a "butter war" out In El-
gin. 111., the center of a large dairy
industry. One faction is trying to
hold up prices to a certain rate and
another crowd wants the figure one
cent a pound lower. Meanwhile the
"ultimate consumer" is disregarded.
He is expected to pay whatever the
other fellows decide upon. That seems
to be the way the law of supply and
demand works with trusts and com-
binations running things.
Herr Wilhelm Volght added to the
gaiety of nations when he personated
a German army officer and "held up'
the Mayor of Koepenlck. although the
imperial authorities, who do not relish
that sort of humor, sent him to prison
for bis Indiscretion. And now he finds
that the "joke" has a serious side.
IJncle Sam's laws forbid the admis-
sion of immigrants with a prison rec-
ord. and Herr Volght, who wanted to
locate here, has been deported as an
objectionable allen. The laugh at
present seems to be on the man who
made merry at the expense of the

Dutchman bade hia wife stand on a
large, flat slate with which be cov-

said, "dat Ish vhere you sbtands till
I comes btck mlt eln enjunctlon." The
solid frau stood there like a statue,
her hands on her hips. When the
husband disappeared, the leader of
the workmen ordered the slate, with
the frau on it. to be removed. With
perfect politeness the lady was set on
one side as if she had been a fat tear
pot on a salver. The Dutch wife stood
like Casablanca, but the hole was well
in its place when the householder re-
turned with the Injunction. He was
overcome with astonishment and
wrath. "Vy vas you not stood on dat

A little American boy with his fa-
ther was vlBltlng a market in a Mex-

with a small basketful of red peppers,
of which she was eating one. His fa-
ther was about to aay: "She thinks
she is very smart," as the son called
his attention to it The boy spoke up
quickly, knowing what was to be said:
"Pa, would those red peppers make
you smart if you eat all of them?" Hit
father replied: "Yes, son."

FN HIGH SOCIETY.
RESULTS of the efforts of the
United States department of
agriculture to Introduce In
place of the box system of
turpentining, which has been
so destructive of the pine for-
ests of the south, the much less in
jurlous cup and gutter or cup and
apron system, are evidenced In resolu-
tions recently adopted by the execu-
tive committee of the Consolidated
Naval Stores company, a representa-
tative association of naval stores pro-
ducers. The resolutions were as fol-
"Whereas, The experiment made by
the United States government, as is
shown by the various bulletins from
the bureau of forestry, aB well as the
experiments of individuals, and the
practical results obtained by the large
which the Consolidated Naval Stores
company owns any interest."
The department of agriculture has
established, by experiments, that the
cup and gutter system of deriving
naval stores (1) yields 30 per cent
more products than the ancient meth-
od; (2) does not so weaken the trees
physically that they are in danger of
being wind thrown; and (3) leaves
the timber in thriftier condition be-
cause it has not been severely Injured
by box cutting. _
Naval stores production is now con-
fined almost entirely to the South At-
lantic and Gulf States—chiefly to
Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana and eastern Texas, with
very little coming from the last-named
state. Southeastern Virginia, eastern

the use of cups in the gathering of

In quantity of spirits of turpentine

the old system of boxing; and,
"Whereas. It appears that tho use of
cups Is to the Interest of producer and
factor, tending to Increase and perpet-
uate the life of an industry in which
we are engaged, and to the general
good and upbuilding of which we
pledge our hearty support;
"Therefore, be It resolved. That we,
the members of the executive commit-
tee of the Consolidated Naval Stores
company, pledge ourselves to use every
Influence at our respective commands
toward bringing about as near as pos-
sible the universal use of cups as

originally yielded this country's sup-
ply. The center then moved farther
south and long remained In Georgia.
Today the center Is In Florida. Ex-
perience of the last half century has
shown clearly In the case of Virginia,
the Carolines, and Georgia, that so
wasteful and severely injurious a sys-
tem of turpentining as the ancient box
method results in exhausting the pro-
ducing forest at such a rapid rate and
in such a abort period as to preclude
all poBslblllty of a permanent produc-
tion of naval stores under that system
In any given region. Under bo short-
sighted a policy and system, continu-
ance of the Industry Is clearly a ques-
tion, not of establishing permanent
production throughout the regularly
maintained forest country, as Is ths
case of wheat and other staple prod-
ucts which become fixed resources of
certain sections, but of how long the
United States as a whole will continue
to produce naval stores. Continuance
of production is dependent chiefly
upon how long the staple species of
virgin Umber will last
