Smith, commercial agent of the department of commerce, pre dicts a large increase In the de mand' for American lumber and forest products in China. At the same time he points out existing difficulties and the short-comings of the marketing methods now in vogue and makes sug gestions for bettering them. "China, he says, "is almost without timber today, and re forestation has not yet been attempted- Reforestation, even if practiced upon a huge scale, would not put China's timber on a basis to equal consumption for approximately 60 to SO years or more. Its population is slowly shaking off the old order of ex istence and turning toward the new toward greater agricul tural and industrial activity, ab sorbing new ideas and adopting new methods. "With increasing development along many lines and with the extension of rail roads with their civilizing and their trade-creating effects, there must of necessity come a larger, wider call for lumber. The United States with its dur able, easily worked and compar itively cheap timber, will, with proper precautions, control this trade.- Purchase of a site for a city hall at this time is an exceed ingly wise move. Property is as low now as it is likely to be for a long time, and the site se lected is a very centraf one. If the city nad waited a few more months there is every likely hood thaf railway construction, actual and prospective, would have sent prices up rapidly. STUDENTS AVOID "PIPE" COURSES. Of the 2936 students to be graduated this year by 150 of the 1G8 standard high school' in the state, 1838 are studying English, 491 German, 271 fcotin, 1235 history and civics and 1325 science, according to figures compiled by State Suprintend ent of Public Instruction Churc hill. But 5S4 elected a course in mathematics and only 21 are studying trigonometry One hundred and seventy-two have selected manual training, 224 domestic science, 1G0 domestic art, 190 shorthand, 337 typewrit ing, 134 bookkeeping and G75 training in teaching- "In 1913 the high school course study was revised and large freedom given in the choice of studies, and it was feared by many that pupils would select such subjects as might give easy credits toward graduation," said the superin tendent. "The result, however, shows that a majority of the students incline to select a course at the beginning of their high school work and hold pretty closely to it through the four years." NEEDED DEMONSTRATION (Cleveland Plaindealer.) There is no reason for alarm, but plenty of occasion for get ting busy. The country is in earnest. The voice of the ultra pacifist has been stilled and in its place is heard the counsel of common sense, urging the na tion to prepare.

Kufus had listened attentively to this second read ing of the report, but now he scowled again as he started to leave the room. There came a lusty kick at the door, and when Walllugford opened it a fel low with a purple face and the rest of him mostly red mulller stood there with a big load of snow frozen wood In his arms.

I'liially he dumped the wood, nnd Walllugford cross exumluod him. lie said his name was IVte, the iiotil porter, and he confided that Ueiijamlii F. Qulrker was tho richest man in town Ten miiiutcjr later, suave, smiling, confident. Walllngford strode Into the dining room, followed by the obsequi ous Illacklc. nnd, bearing in Ills tweadth of chest and poise of shoul- llngford's less than $4 balance hi tho 4trs nnd general air all the wealth of Ouarantee and Fidelity bank In New tho Indies, he sat down opposite the j York and tho awe inspiring abyss only other occupant, a man of about which yawned beneuth their feet, cov forty-five, with u mustache and neatly ered the lower part of his face with a trimmed mutton chop whiskers about ' big handkerchief and sneezed loudly halfway down his plump cheeks and three separate times, who held a little brown leather bag "To consolidate, purcliuse-or light," between his feet. Ho was a man of . amended Mr, Qulrker, as ho looked a I excellent case apparently, but at the j his watch and hastily arose.

"Gradually Hearing perfection," stat- ed Walllngford promptly, sure of his Krou,i I10W nna thankful that Qlllrkcr had been one of those who camu In late, after he had all his plans made for "cleaning up." "Are you still In the market for this territory'" "No; I think not." returned Qulrker. the shadow of a frown Hitting across his brow. "I'm taking on no new In terests whatsoever Just now. As a matter of fact. I'm letting go of some of them." and again for nn Instant n faraway look came Into Ills eyes. "What brings the wealthy Mr. Walling ford to our little Jlnklnsvllle?" Walllngforil was himself onco more Up to this instant no idea had visited him, but now upon demand one came. "I have rather a large financial scheme In hand." he said, frowning with deep gravity, "a plan to counteract the lin meuse money monopoly of the large city hanks, which, ns you know, have for their foundation rocks of strength the small country banks. It Is a lop sided arrangement, withnll the favors flowing eastward. In times of stress tho financial center throws Its weight on you and dratus you to the last drop of your financial blood. In times of J ease it throws your money back on you and leaves it Idle." ' Mf, Qulrker had nodded Ills head nr each period as he slowly sipped his tof fee. "That's painfully true," he agreed "I've over $(W,000 of Idle money now in , my vault across the1 street, which I can't place at any price except on long ' time loans, and long loans will not do. as this Is a farming community, and I must have the money in the spring and summer for crop operations at good In- lore-it rates on first mortgages. Hut how do you propose to remedy tills con dltlonV" "Consolidate tho country hanks of the middle west." stated VVnllliigfoid. leaning back and beaming upon him ns . if in pity that Mr, Qulrker had not himself thought of so simple a solution. . "Organize a gigantic holding company. Inaugurate a dully system of report and esi-hange and form a distribution , bureau which shall first attend to the ; needs of the middle west and then dic tate terms to (he east. The east can i not do without in, and by standing to- get her we can make tljorn divide the cream with us In place of merely glv- i''S U the sklmmllli. as they have done heretofore." "There will he a little trouble about charier," Qulrker said musingly, "but of course that i-an easily be straight encd out. I presume, too." he added hbwly, "that quite a number of hanks will have lo be purchased outright." "I've calculated upon that," dei-lnred Walllngford. "and I stand ready to oil her purchase or consolidate." lie said It simply, too; so simply and easily that Illackle Daw, remembering tliclr $7 of combined cash capital, Wnl moved away witu a certain dignified case, which made Walllugford reflect upon him as being probably the most popular ladles' man In his congrega tion. . Iteyond the casl'der's cage of the Jlnklnsvllle bank, at the cud of u nar row pusse.;e by the side of the brick vault, was a door, the glass of which was marked "President." and Inside of this WalWagfonl found llenjamlu F. Qulrker. his little brown leather bag still between Ids feet, at a loll top desk, energetically sorting papers. "This Is houaceleniihiK day, Mr. Wal llugford," he said, In pleasant explana tion. "I'm trying to put a great many things In order, and It Is a terrific 'ask." Waltliififord had already studied the lesk cleaning thoughtfully, so much o that now he was able to pass it .'rem his mind. "A man of your natu nl leadership In a community can icnreoly avoid having a certain, amount if personal tlnnuclal Interest In all its iiwluess venture." he guessed. "Yes. considerably more than he vants." admitted Mr. Qulrker. "In pile of all his conservation ho Is drag ged into local Investments, which, while nood i'iuniL-li. cannot be cashed hi emergency." and he vast u frown I II.. .1.. ..t.l...l ... eyes, too, strayed undcrstundlngly to that little bundle of securities. Mr. Oulrker shook his head and his shoul ders us If to free himself of his ab straction. "Your plan." he went on, "would re lieve the country banker of a lot of this burden." This was the opening, and Into It Wulllngford thrust his wholo breadth, Inventing upon the spot all the details, paraphernalia and red firo or the pro posed consolidation of western banks. To Ills ctAistematlon, however, ho found that he was not holding the at tention of his auditor. At last Wuh llngfonl discovered that Mr. Qulrker was counting the strips of weather- boarding up and down, down and up. up and down; then the savior of the country's finances gave up In despair and brought his lngglug argument to n busty close. "Anil that," he concluded, "Is the plan .1 I. I. II.. I... ..I. uw 1 ,'. . .

"Quite." declared Mr. Qulrker, "Then show me the goods," and VVnl lhigford arose as If ho had only been awaiting this statement to gut Into real action. The lackluster look faded from Mr. Qulrkcr's eyes at once, and he turned toward Walllngforil with alacrity. "Showing you the goods, Mr. Walllng ford, Is a very simple mutter," he said.
