Experiments Performed W
.The Forest Service
Washington, D. C, Juno 21
"Only 30 per cent of the wpod In a
forest now gets Into tho form of
seasoned, unplaned lumber. Of this
an additional 10 to 25 per cent Is
lost In the process of manufacture.
In oxtrome cases as little as three
per cent of tho -wood In the forest
may reach the finished product."
This statement is made in a booklet
Just issued by tho Department of
Agriculture, entitled Forest Pro
ducts Laboratory, describing the
work and alms of the experimental
laboratory maintained by the For
est 'Service in cooperation with the
University of Wisconsin at Madi
Tho booklet outlines how, thru
investigation and experiment, the
laboratory is devising and broad
casting practical commercial meth
ods by which this enormous waste
of the country's timber supply can
bo reduced. By reducing this
waste, it Is pointed outy the'llfo of
our present forests will bo pro
longed and the problem; of growing
now forosts mado simpler, because
by preventing tho waste of timber
less timber will have to be grown.
Among the various methods
studied at tho laboratory for de
creasing wasto of forest products is
tho treatment of woods to preser
vatives, resisting decay Through
such treatment an annual saving of
1 1-2 billion board feet is estimated
to bo possible In the case of rail
road ties alone, and tho preserva
tion of other classes of timber would
in tho aggregate greatly relieve tho
drain on our forests.
The Forost Products Laboratory
is a government Institution; its ad
vice and suggestions are to be had
for tho asking. It presents, ac
cording to the booklet, an oppor
tunity for many manufacturers,
wood users and timber growers to
supplement tho information ob
tained by experlonco and hard
knocks with technical data ob
talned thru scientific research.

LIVED ON FISH FOR A YEAR
Explorer Sfefansson Tells of Year
Fish Diet Without Salt.
That we place too high u value on a
great variety of food as necessary to
nealth and good digestion Is the opin
ion of Stcfnusson, the eminent ex
plorer, who lectures nt Chautauqua on
the second night, based on his experi
ence In the Arctic, and tho experience
of those who Here with him on his his
toric expeditions. '
"I lived on fish, both raw and
cooked, for a whole year, and without
salt," Mr. Stefnustion says, "and
weighed ten pounds more at the end
of the yeur than at the beginning. I
was not troubled with Indigestion, or
any other bad effects. In fact, I can
Kay that I never felt better In my life.
Taking up any new system of diet Is
largely a psychological matter," said
.Mr. 8tefnnsMn. "Ve have prejudices
which It Is a difficult matter to over
come. If the animals that arc used for
food were placed In ono group and
those that nni not considered good for
food were placed In another group, and
a thoroughly unbiased pel-son were
asked for an opinion, he would say
there Is little or no difference between,

money she had put aside for food,
and she, the little Marie, thought It
lost. Ahl how she cried, the petite.
But no more shall she weep. The
doctor said she must have rest, good
food, change of air, or she will die.
So I took the money nnd bought a

fortune Is mine I Fifty thousand
The little mat. rushed nbout Im
parting his good news to all and
sundry, for everyone was willing to
listen to his tale of good luck, most
of them with envy, but some well
pleased that It was great. For Jean
Berrler was one of the unfortunates
with a sick, n rising wife, who had
struggled and slaveJTto put bread Into
the mouths of her husband nnd three
small children ever since he. Jean, fell
from the scaffolding of a building on
which he was working and .broke his

Had anything happened to him?
Never before hnd he left for so longl
And she was t.red, oh, so 'tired

There was a stumbling noise as of a
drunken man coming up the stairs,
then a rush of stronger, swifter foot
steps, nnd the crippled Jenn burst Into
the room, Intoxicated wth Joy, fol

neighbors and even strangers, brought
by the little man's enthusiasm.
"Tlens! little one! Hero are silks

FIRST PLAYED IN IRELAND
Croquet Made Its Way From That
Country to Ennland, and From
Thence to America.
The first treatise on croquet that
came to our little vlllago was by
Mayne Reld. The book was first pub
llshed In London In 1803; thPre was
a New York edition In 18G5 ; a Boston
edition In 1800. Some of the boys,
disdaining the mallets on sale, had
them made of fancy but heavy woods
The first stakes were tall, thick, with
gorgeously colorca rings to match the
balls. The game encouraged fllrtatlou
among thfc older players. Young worn
en were coquettish In putting a foot
on the hall and saw to It that they
were handsomely shod.
Was croquet a development of the
Dutch game, closh, or did It pass from
Brittany Into Ireland? It certainly was
played In Ireland before It wai popu
lar In England, writes Philip Hale In
the Boston Herald. It has been stated
that It was played near Dublin under
this name In 1834-5. The game nnd
name were Introduced Into England In
1852. In 1853 n writer In Field said
croquet came Into the north of Ireland
some twelvo years before from a
French convent. Trollopefs Mr.
Crosble played croquet in 18tV2. In
1877 an ivory turner of London, one
Dickson, remembered having made a
set of croquet Implements for Ireland
forty years before.
The game went out of fashion In the
country when lawn tennis became the
rage. The men that persisted in cro
quet were suspected of being passion
ately addicted to soda lemonade. There
was at least a revival, with grand
tournaments and strutting champions.
Herkimer Johnson tells us that sum
mer cottagers at Clamport play as
siduously even when It rains and the
whacking of the wooden Wis often
distracts htm-from the Investigation
of sociological problems.
