"Thoro!" says Nate, happy and gen

Havo 'em strung around on tho setting

"Yes," says I; "I should think

"Yes," says ho. "Well, I hoped thoy

"Good-night," says I, absent-minded,

lugged In tho presents and laid 'em

Aftor I got undressed I opened tho
window and leaned on tho sill and
thought I thought about jny new Job
and what I could sco was coming to
mo in tho wny of work, and about
Lord James and Nato and all. And
then I thought of Hartley and that
Pago girl. Martin didn't act to mo
llko a raoney-grabbor. I couldn't un
derstand it. One thing I was sure of,
them two was meant for each othor
and It seemed to mo that they still
liked oach other. But there was Van
Brunt I liked him too.
Just then a thundering great green
head bit mo on the back ot the neck
and I 8lammod down tho sash and
turned In on my balo ot corncobs.
Tired I don't talk!
Mr. Scudder's Presents.
I was up tho noxt morning about
flwo and pitched In making biscuit and
lugging water and so on. Lord James
comes poking down after a while. Ho
looked pretty woll used up,
"See 'ore, Pratt," says ho. "W'at
they got In thorn blooming beds
bricks?" "Why?" Bays I. "Wns yours hard?"
'"Ard? Upon me word I'm nil full
of 'oles llko a grater. My back is that
sore you wouldn't boliovo it. And
w'at makes 'em so noisy?"
"That'B tho husks," Bays I. "They

Llko the water washing around that

"Ghosts, hoy? Did you dream of
"That I did. I could 'ear 'cm groan
ing." " 'Twns yourself thnt was groaning,"
Bays I. "A feller. that took aboard tho
cargo of Btippcr that you did hadn't
ought to sleep on cornhusks."
"I didn't sloep; not a 'calthy Chris

"Well," says I, "I don't know as I
over heard that oxactly. But old Mrs.
Borry died In It nnd thun Marcellus
lived hero ulono till ho died. Seems to

como to think of It," Bays I, cheering
Ho turned pale, instead of tho yol

"'Oly Moses!" says ho. "You can't
"I can menn more than that without
half trying," 1 says. "Yos, I rcmom
her now. Ho did dlo thoro and they
say ho diud hard. Maybo that was on
account of tho bed, though."
Ho was mighty upset. Commenced
to tell about a friend of his over In
"tho old country" who hud boon butler
at a placo that was haunted, I asked
if his friend had over seen any of the
"No," says ho, " 'o novor Baw 'em
'lmsclf, but it was a tradition in tho
family. Everybody know it. It wns a
whito lady, nnd sho used to trip about
tho 'ouso and over tho lawns nights,"
"White, was shoi?"- says I. "Well, I
suppose If oho'd been black they
wouldn't havo been ablo to sco hor In
tho night. Novor heard of a colored
ghost anyway, did you?"
"I mean sho was all dressed In
white," ho says, scornful. "And they
say 'twas 'orrid to seo hor a-glidlng
around over tho grass."
"Want to know!" says I. "Well, if
you sco old Marcollus gliding uround
tho hummccks outside call me, will you?
I'd llko to seo how ho manages to navi
gate through tho sand. That's a Job
for a strong, healthy man, let alono
a dead ono."
I guess he seo I didn't tako much
stock in his ghost yarns, bo ho quit
and went to gottlng tho things on tho
breakfast table. But ho was nervous
and broko a dish and Bprlnkled forks
and spoons over tho floor llko ho was
sowing 'em. Pretty soon ho had to
stop and hustlo upstairs, for tho
Twins was shouting for tholr duds. For
grown men they was tho most helpless
crittors; his lordship waB a sort of
nurse to 'cm, as you might say.
After a while he had 'cm dressed
and ready and they come down to
breakfast. Nate had brought over
feather beds for them, bo they slopt
pretty well. Van Brunt was rigged up
special because ho was going to East
wlch that forenoon to sco hi3 girl.
I'd cooked a whopping big breakfast,
but 'twas only Just enough. Van was
a regular famine breeder and Hartloy
wa'n't far astern of him. Tho Natural
Llfo was agreeing with both of 'em
fine so fnr. Martin's cheeks was filling
out and him and his chum was sun
burned to brick red. ,
Aftor breakfast they went out for
their usual promenade. By and by I
heard 'cm hulling me from tho back
of the house. Whon I reached 'em
they was standing by tho barn, with
tholr hands in their pockets, and look
ing as happy and proud as if they'd
discovered Arr lea
"Cnmn ho hJ nlrl
Como he t.v, Bklppor,"
"Do you soo, Als?"
Ho waB pointing at a kind of Hat
place in tho lco of the pig sties. Twas
a sort of small desert, as you might
say: A bunch or two of beachgrass In
tho middle of It and tho rest poverty
grass and sand.
"I don't see much," sayB I. "What
do you mean?"
"I mean tho location," says he.
"Hero's whoro we'll havo our garden."
I looked at him to' see if he was
Joking. But It appeared ho wa'n't.
"Garden?" says I.
"Sure," ho says. "It's an ldoal spot.
Sun all day long."
"You could mako a garden hore,
couldn't you, Sol?" asks Hartley.
"Maybo I could," says I, "if I ilug
through to Cbiny nnd hit loam on
t'othor side. Otherwise you couldn't
ralso nothing In this sand but blis
ters." "Scudder could bring ub loam," says
Van. "We've thought ot that."
"Starting a garden In Julyl" says I.
"What do you cal'lato to ralso Christ
mas trees?" '
"Lato vegetables, of courso," says
Van. "Martin nnd I Intend, to stay all
through September. Think of It, Mar
tin; green corn from our own planta
tion. And cucumbers in tho morning,
with the dow on 'om."
"And tomatters already bakod in
the sun," I says, disgusted. "You take
my advlco and buy your groon stuff oft
But they wouldn't hear of it. Called
me a Jeremiah and so on.
"All right," says I, finally. "Havo
It your own way. But who's going to
work this cucumbers and dew farm?"
"Why, wo are, of course," says Van.
"That's part of tho gamo, Isn't It, Mar
tin? Nothttis so healthful as out
door work for caged birds llko us.
Maybo wo'll havo two gardens, ono
apioco. Then wo'll soo who raises tho
I could sco 'cm doing Itl But there
.wns no -ueo arguing then. I put my
trust in Scudder's not boing ablo to
fetch tho loam.
Pretty soon Nato heaves in Bight In
tho dory with a cargo ot skim milk
and storo eggs and button Van Brunt
nnd I went down to meet him. Van
didn't glvo him a qhanco to talk; Just
ns Boon as tho stuff was put on shore
ho announces thnt Scuddcr must go
right bnck nnd drive him over to East
wlch. Nate backed and filled, as us
ual, telling how busy ho wns, nnd how
he hadn't ought to leave, nnd so on.
But Vnn corks him right up with a
five-dollar bill nnd off thoy wont.
I lugged the milk and butter and tho
rest of the truck up to tho Iioiiho nud
started In on another stretch of work.
I'd had a vacation of ten minutes or
so; now 'twns tlmo to begin again.
After I'd cleared up round tho kitchen
nnd tho llko of (hat, I went off down to
the Dora Bassctt and tackled her. Van
Brunt had cut away about everything
but tho mnst, nud I had to rig new
halliards nud sheets and downhnuls
and land knows what. Drat that Heav
enly! 'twas a two days' Job.
Whllo I wns making a stnrt on It
Hartley comes loafing down from tho
"Skipper," he says, "let's havo an
other ono of your chowders for lunch,
will you? They're tho real thing."
"Well, I tell you, Mr. Hartloy," Rays
I, "If wo have chowder I'd ought to go
nnd dig tho clnma right now, on ac
count of tho tide. And, honest, I halo
lo.lcavo this work I'm on. Still, of
courso, If you say bo, why "
"What'B tho matter with my digging
'om?" ho says.
I grinned. "Why, nothing," I says,
"bo far us I know, except that It's
something of n Job."
"Job!" ho enys. "It'll be run. Toll
mo whoro to go and what to dig 'om
with, and and how to do It."
I told him to take tho. Bklff nnd n
clam hoo nnd a couple of buckets nnd
row acro3n to the mainland. There was
clnms all alonguhoro there, I knew.
"You go along till you sec u lot of
littlo holes In tho sand," I says, "then
you dig. Want to look out that thoy
ain't sand-worm holes, nor inzor fish.
And when you begin to dig," I says,
"you want to lay right into it, 'causo
tho clams nro likely to bo 'run-do'nB'
and they get under fast. So "
"Hold on a minute," says he. "flow
am I going to tell a worm-hole from a
clam-holc.or a clam-hole from a what
was It? barber flsh hole?"
"Razor fish," says I. "Not barber.
Well, I don't know how to toll you, ox
actly. If It's a sand-hole there's likely
to bo a littlo tiny hole alongside tho
regular ono; that Is, there Is some
times and sometimes there ain't. And
If It's u razor flsh well, I can toll 'em,
but I cal'lato you'll havo to use your
Ho said all right, ho guessed ho'd
get along. So off he went, nud pretty,
soon him and Lord James comes down
and gots aboard tho skiff. His lord
ship was loaded with no less than four
buckets, besides n clam hoe and the
garden hoo and the stove Bhovcl. 'Twns
tho most imposing clam hunt outfit
ever I see. If I'd been a clam and
seo that battery coming my way I'd
luiYO took to tall timber.
"Sure you've got hoes nnd buckots
enough?" I asks, sarcastic.
"I guess so," says ho, looking around
nt tho weapons. "Wo might need nn
othcr pall, pcriiaps, but If we do I'll
solid James after It."
His lordship started rowing, taking
strokes first with ono hand and then
with tho other, and tho fleet got under
way and wnltzed, as you might say,
zigzag across to tho main. 'Twas as
calm as a millpond and they hit land
up townrds tho point by tho Neck Iload.
Then tho clam slaughterers got out
and disappeared round behind the
point I went on with my rigging.
It got to bo 11 o'clock and no signs
of 'cm. Then 12; lunch time. Tldo
was coming In fast, you couldn't havo
got a clam now without n diving outfit.
But still all quiet on tho Potomac. I
went up to tho house and commenced
to sllco ham and fry potatoes. I had
my doubts about that chowder.
Everything was ready by and by
and I stepped to tho door to tako an
observation. And then I seo 'em com
ing, rowing more crab fashion than
over. I walked down to tho Inlet to

"HI. Sol!" sings out Hartley,, as tho

Ho lookod It Ho wns barefoot and

President Roosevelt lias Just signed n
proclamation setting nBldo nnd nam
Ing tho Ocnla national forest in Mnrlon
county In enstern Florida nnd another
proclamation creating tho Dakota na
tional forest in Billings county, North
Dakota. Inasmuch as tho last named
national forest is tho first In North

thoso wherein land will bo put under
scientific forest administration. There
nro now 19 states, and Alaska, having
Before tho creation of tho Ocala, In
Florida, tho two forests In Arkansas,
tho Ozark and tho Arkansas, were tho
easternmost national forests. Prac
tically nil tho other national forests
aro in tho Rocky mountain and tho
Pacific coast Btates. Tho Florida for
est has an area of 201,180 acres, ot
which about one-fourth has been taken
up under various land laws. It covers
a plateau between tho St. John's and
Ochlawaha rivers nnd nt no point is
nn elovntlon exceeding ICO foot abovo
sea lovel obtained. Tho area is by na
ture better fitted for tho production of
forest growth than for any other pur
pose Nenrly all of tho area, however,
-tieoms particularly well adapted to tho
growth of sand pine, which Is oven
now roplnclng tho less valuable
species, and with protection from flre
almost tho entire nrca will In time un
doubtedly bo covered with a detiBO
stand of tills species. Tho long-leaf
pine, a much more valuablo. commer
cial tree than tho sand pine, appears
rather sparsely on this forest nnd Is
confined principally to tho lower flat
lands along tlio strenms on tho bor
ders ot tho forest.
In nddlftion to tho pines nnd scrub
growths, bald cypress, cabbago palmet
to and tupclo gum, gradually changing
to water oak, ash, elm, magnolia, hick
ory nnd maplo nro found bordering
the numerous ponds and lakes which
aro scattered abundantly throughout
tho confines ot this forest.
Fire has played a vory Important
part in bringing about tho present
poorly forested condition of tho Ocala,
ns year aftor year large fires havo
burned uninterruptedly over this tract,
killing all vegetation and consuming
the humus of tho soil. Naturally pro
tected portions which havo not been
subject to tho flnmes provo positively,
however, that tho soil will rapidly re
spond to n littlo care taking and that
tho prevention of Arcs would eventual
ly mean tho reforestation of practical
ly tho entire orea.
No sawmill operations havo been
conducted on tho nrca included in tho
Ocala national forest Turpentining
by boxing Is carried on ovor contigu
ous areas and through tho careless
and nntiquated methods used tho fu
ture pine crop of tho adjoining region
Is greatly Jeopardized. Tho soil Is of
littlo valuo for agricultural purposes
and ubout tho only crop which can bo
produced that will bo of lasting valuo
is Band plno, nnd with proper caro nnd
attention there should in tlmo bo a
valuablo forest of this species.
Tho new Dakota national forest con
sists ot 14,080 acres In Iho Bad Lands
region. It is located in Billings coun
ty nnd tics an equal distanco between
tho Northern Pacific railroad on tho
north nnd tho Chicago, Mllwaukoo &
St. Paul on tho south. Its creation Is
Important for It menns that an experi
mental field for forest planting lias
beon secured in North Dakota, the
least forested stato in tho Union, hav
ing only ono per cont of treo growth.
Tho forest sorvico expects to establish
forest nurseries with the hope thnt in
timo to como tho area may bo refor
ested by artificial means. This feature
Is expected to provo a very good ob
ject lesson to tho settlers, who, it la
hoped, will In turn plant windbreaks
nround their farms.
The forest 1b very open nnd for tho
most part contains n' scattering Btnnd
of western yellow plno timber. Along
tho crock bed nro found ash, box older,
cottonwood, elm nnd birch. Cedar
breaks arc also found on precipitous
slopoH bordering tho Btrcams. West

nblo BpccloB, however, on tho forest
nnd the average stand per ncro 1b not
over 2,000 feet. Tho reproduction of
plno Is fairly good wherever mature
trecH occur, but owing to tho open
condition of tho forest nnd tho donso
growth of grass It Is for tho moBt part
There is but littlo timbor thnt will
bo Bold from tho forest at the present
time, Blnce this area Is vory isolated,
bclug Biirroundcd on all sides by vast
plains. Many homesteaders havo In
tho past como to this forest for tim
bor for logs to build thoir houses.
Since tho completion of tho Chicago, '
Milwaukee & St Paul railroad, Hillings,
county Ib rapidly being Bottled, ami
while stock grazing is at tho present
tlmo tho most Important Industry, It is
vory probnblo that farming, will boi
como tho most important industry
within tho next few years. It is very
Important, therefore, thnt tho timbor
which now rcmalus should bo con
served exclusively for the uso ot tho
At the present timo there aro but
soven homesteaders within tho boun
daries of tho forest, but all of tho odd
sections nro alienated land boing
owned by tho Wesforn Land Securities'
Company. This company Iiob been
selling portions of tholr holdings dur
ing tho past fow years. Very littlo of
tho govornmont land within tho
boundaries ot tho forest is suitable for
farming purposes, since it Is quite
rough and broken and wator is very
scarcer. It Is tho country outsldo of
tho forest which Ib now being takon
up by settlers.
No sawmill operations havo aver
been conducted on tho area. Whon
tho Northern Pacific railroad was bo
ing built a larger number of trees
were cut for railroad tics, and together
with the logs which huvo been pro
cured for'houso building by settlers,
this Is tho only uso which has boen
mndo of tho timbor on tho forest. It Is
understood thnt tho logs used In tho
construction of President Roosovolt's
cabin, which now stands In tho stato
capltol grounds at Bismarck, N. D.,
wore. obtained from tho nrea now in
cluded In tho Dakota natlonnl forest
Gov. Burko of North Dakotu is very
much interested In this forest and
thinks It will be of inestimable value
to tho peoplo whollvo In tho region
where tho forest is created.
Both of tho new national forests, tho
Ocala in Florida, and tho Dakotu, will
bo put under administration by tho
forest service as soon as possible.
