longer than usual,' but after finishing
dinner and smoking bait a cigar be
turned on hor and blandly said:
"Mrs. Dowser, you don't begrudge
me any little happiness I csn take

"Why, of course not," she promptly
"Ton know I'm not much of a band
to go out evenings." -
"No, you are not"
"I think It Is a husband's place to

"But you haven't the slightest idea
of music, you know," she rejoined
without weighing ber words.
"Whatt What's thatr
"That Is, you haven't what they term
a musical ear that Is, you don't sing,

to loom to play oa it pedestrians stop

face as red as Ore. . '. j
"I mean that you kicked the harp out
doors after the third evening."
"Never! Never In all this world! I
gsve it up simply because of the
cramp In my fingers. Tou tell me that
I have no ear for music! Why, wo
man, I waa leading a church choir
while you were wearing short dresses.
Is this Insult Intended to drive me out
Into the world tonight to get drunk and
smash up some saloon r
"Tou know it Is not, replied Mrs.
Bowser. "It is nothing to your dis
credit that you can't whistle a tune.
There are lots of people that way."
"More Insults, ehr
"I mean that you couldn't that is, I
hoped you hadn't brought home an
other harp. The cook la very nervous,
you know, and some of our neighbors
don't even like to bear my soft playing
on the piano. If you wasn't to take
lessons and would hire soma hall"
" 'IvVes All Mixed' Up." I -
Poor airs. Bowser was all mixed up
and could not finish.
Mr. Bowser, who was as pale as the
dead and as weak in the knees as If
he had seen a bear, looked at her for a
moment and then pointed to the ball
and stairs and said! ' ' l; !
-, "Woman, you may go to your room.
I will excuse you for the rest of tbe
evening. To-morrow morning I will
endeavor to find out whether you have
a brain a(orm or wish to drive me from
my home In ignominy and humllla
tIon."!'i H r '. ?T .
Mrs. Bowsor wont , She was glad to
go. Mr. Bowser looked after ber for a
moment with set Jaw and then brought
out hlB package from Its hiding place
and removed the wrappers to reveal a
secondhand cornet He had seen it In
the window of a pawnshop as he was
about to pass, and while be stood look
ing at It the pawn man came out and
offered him a bargain that he couldn't
resist ' It was the veritable cornet
that a king of France wti playing on
when the revolutionists called to say
that he must part with bis bead to
show that be had no bard feelings

farlt could lay back in hlB Morris
hair and blow aid bww aad blow and
fas! tan times the sati faction oil beat,
lag Mrs. Bowser at euchre. Tbe In'
trument wss purchased.
"And now I'm told that I have no
ear for music,", said tbe purchaser as
be lifted it up' and puckered his lips
for toot "I am coolly and calmly
and deliberately Informed tbat 1 can't
even Whistle a tune, and I am recom
mended to hire a ball. By Jobn, we'll
see about Itl Tbe neighbors object M
a Uttle soft mnslc, do they? We'll see
about that too. We'll tee whether tbe
neighbors run this bouse or I do."
Mr. Bowser sat down and drew
long breath; then be raised the cornel
to bis mouth and let ber go. The sound
wss a combination of grizzly beat
growl and the shouts of a man slowly
sinking to a horrible death In quag
mire. Other sounds followed. They
wart sounds of saws sawing against
Iron. They were sounds of a man with
the asthma trying to hurrah for Bunkei
Hill on the Fourth of July. Tbey were
sounds of Ave or slf dogs engaged in
deadly conflict over a bone and lire
or tlx more joyously hastening up to
take part in tbe scrap. Tbe pawn
broker bad told Mr. Bowser tbat when
ha got the thing to going not to stop
and let It cool off, but to keep It at
tbe redhot pitch. Tbe Instructions
were carefully followed until tbe wind
gave out, and tbe noise died away like
the tan end of a cyclone. By tlmt
time Mrs. Bowser had eome down
stairs to .ssy;
"Do you know that you will scare
the cook to death, with tbat noise If
you keep onf "
'"Blast the cook!" retorted tbe plsyer
aa be raised tbe born and blew anoth
ar medley of walls and screams.
"And tbat pedestrians are already
stopping at tbe gate!" abe continued
aa ahe looked out of tbe window and
caught algbt of four men banging on
"Blast the pedestrians F
"And tbe neighbors will be knocking
at the door. Tbe folks that moved In
next door two weeks ago are from the
country and not used to such noises."'
" "Woman, retire! Betlre upstairs! Re
tire to stay retired! I have hired my
ball and propose to play this horn as
long as I want to."
Muslo Wss Weird.
Mrs. Bowser could do nothing else.
Then Mr. Bowser resumed. Tbe revo
lutionists tbat killed the king tbat blew
on that horn 'bad the proper Idea of
things. They knew tbat It waa either
his life or theirs. It emitted groans
and grants and toots and walls. It
sounded flats and It souuded sharps,
and between tbem It Bounded several
other things. Mr. Bowser had been in
sulted by Mrs. Bowser declaring tbat
he was no musician. Tbe thought of
that helped bis wind at least 00 per
cent as be blew. He had been advised
to hire a hall. He rolled his eyes
around tbo room and imagined tbat he
waa In a ball tilled with 10,000 people
and tbat be bad got to toot loud enough
to send the shivers up and down the
spines of every listener. For ten min
utes the ruction went on, the earnest
ness and the determination of the play
er Increasing every second, and then
came a thundering knock at tbe front
door to Interrupt a long drawn wall
Mr, Bowser answered it There were
two policemen there and a crowd be
hind them. ' ' - " ' " '
"Wbat tbe devil Is-thlsJ" demanded
one of tbe officers.
"Look at the red faced murderer!"
added the other.
"A rope and a limb!" shouted tbe
Then Mrs. Bowser came down the
stairs and talked softly and sweetly to
the officers. Bbe explained that It was
only Mr. Bowser and It was only one
of his little wsys and tbat If they
would not club or lynch blm he would
soon tire of his new toy and be looking
after a chicken farm or a squab ranch;
and In five minutes she bad worked
the crowd out of tbe yard. Then she
took tbe born out of Mr. Bowser's
hands and said: ; '
"When you get ready to retire, you
can come along up."
Three hours later, as be bad not ap
peared, abe slipped downstairs in a
wrapper and found him asleep on tbe
lounge, and there were undrled tears
on his cheeks. His musical career had
been cut short M. QUAD.

NO FORESTS IN 1942.
All the timbers in the United States
will be cut within the next twenty-
three to thirty-three years. This, at
least, is the startling statement made
by Applcton's Magazine in an article
on national waste which is to appear
in the March number. To back up its
assertion it quotes figures. The pre
sent consumption of timber is approx
imately 100,000,000,000 feet a year
and the annual growth is about 40,-
000,000,000 feet. The estimates of the
present total supply vary from 1,400
to 2,000 billion feet. Taking the for
mer figure, it is found that by 1932
there will be practically no merchant
able timber left in the United States
while, even if the larger estimate is
correct, it will all be gone by 1942.,
The moral pointed by these statistics,
of course, is the need of immediate
action if the nation s not to be rob
bed entirely of one of its most import
ant natural resources. The Appleton
article points out that other sources
of national wealth are being depicted
in the same way as the forests, al
though in these other cases the limit
of actual exhaustion is not so close
at hand. The assertion is made, how
ever, that the coal supply will last no
more than another hundred years;
that over a million tons of fertile soil
is washed away yearly by the rivers,
largely because of floods, due to the
denudation of forest lands, and that
the source of agricultural wealth are
being undermined by improper meth
ods of cultivation and neglect of fer
tilizing. The remedy proposed for
this state of affairs is to arouse the
interest of the club-women of Amer
ica in a movement to combat national
waste of all kinds and to urge the
conservation of the natural resources
of the country.' ,
Because meats are so tasty they
are consumed in great excess. This
leads to stomach troubles, biliousness
and constipation. Revise your diet,

petite control, then take a few doses

DID LEE EXPECT DEFEAT?
The Qeneral'a Significant Statement
' After Sailors Creak. ' "
My last official Intercourse with Gen
eral Lee was on the retreat I was
sent to him with dispatches from Pres
ident Davis and reached him near mid
night of April 6 near Bice's station. 1
approached without being challenged
by a single sentinel and found him
standing near a smoldering lira with
one of his bands resting on an am
bulance wheel. He was dictating some
order to Colonel Marshall, who sat in
tbe ambulance with a lap desk receiv
ing his dictation. As General Lee
spoke he gazed into the bed of coals
as if welghlpg every word. There was
no staff or escort about so far as 1
could see. Touching Sailors Creek, be
spoke bitterly' and said in answer to
Mr. Davis' desire to know bis proposed
line of retreat that It was beyond his
control; that he had Intended to re
treat by the line of the Danville road,
but bad been forced off tbat route by
the arrival of Sheridan ahead of him
at Burkvllle that he was then follow
ing the line of the Southslde road to
Lynchburg, but the enemy was out
marching him and might force him off;
that his movements were dependent
on the developments of each hour, and
then he added: "How can I tell? A
few more Sailors Creeks and it will all
be over Just where I thought It would
end from the beginning." When I first
published this statement Its truthful
ness was questioned. Fortunately I
afterward saw two of his staff, both
of whom said they bad heard blm ex
press himself In the same way. There
may have been 'times when General
Lee, elated by some of his surprising
successes, ' felt' hopeful' about the tri
umph of our cause. From the proba
bilities based on numbers and resources
his Judgment may have been warped
away now and then by the feeling be
expressed when, after Second Manas
sas, Sharpstmrg, Fredericksburg and
Chancellors vllle, he said,' "No general
ever commanded such troops as those
under me." But his mind was too
mathematical In Its workings, and ull
Its calculations were too habitually
based upon what could be done with
a given number" of men and a certain
amount of material to make him forget
the Vast disparity between the contest
ants or hope for ultimate trlumph.
