DUE TO DISEASED BLOOD
Every symptom of an old sore sug

the fact that local applications have
no permanent effect toward healing
the ulcer, shows that deep down in
the system there is a morbid cause for
the sore. But more convincing proof
that bad blood is the cause for these
places is furnished by the fact that
even removing the sore or nicer by
surgical operation dots not cure; they
always return. Nature will heal any

TEN TONS OF FOREST SEED
Aril. Ilea of the Aarlenltnrnl Oepar
lueat In lleplrnUhlnsj
The fnlted States Department of Agri
culture Is using this ear on the national
forests more than ten tons of tree seed.
Mont of this seed has already been planted
or sown. The rest will be utilized later, as
favorable conditions are presented.
It takes a great many tree seeds to make
ten tons. Jack pine, the most important
tree for planting In the Nebraska sand hills,
will averago something like 123.000 to the
pound. Of western yellow pine, the tree
most extensively planted throughout the
nutlonal forests as a whole, 10.0"0 seed make
a pound. Altogether the ten tons of seed
used this year represent perhaps f'0.000,000
If every seed could be depended on to
produce a young tree suitable for planting,
the result would be a supply of nursery
stock sufficient to plant 300,000 acres of land,
but no such results can be looked for be
cause many seeds do not germinate. Most
of the seed will be sown, .either broadcast
or in seed-spots, or planted with a corn
plantor, directly In the place where the
trees are to Btand.
Even when nursery stock Is raised a
liberal allowance must be made for loss.
In the first place, a considerable percent
age of the soeda Wi.l be found to be in
fertile. Of those which germinate, many
will die before they leave the nursery
beds, and many more will be lost In trans
planting. If from a iuind of western
yellow pine seed that contains 10.0W In 11
vldual seeds 4.000 8-year-old transplants
are available for field planting, the De
partment of Agriculture will have obtained
satisfactory results. There are now
twenty-four national forest nurseries,
having an annual productive ca
pacity of over 8,0,niin seellngs.
But thore are many millions of old
burns on the national forests which are
waiting to be restocked, and some quicker
and cheaper method tnan the actual
planting of nursery-grown trees Is urg
ently needed. Therefore, the foresters are
making experiments on a large scale
with different methods of direct sowing I
gathered last year was obtained for this
Broadcasting has already been found to
give good results in some regions. It was
first tried In the Black Hills of South
Dakota, with an encouraging outcome.
To broadcast an acre of land with yellow
pine seed about eight pounds of seed is
used. One of the most formidable draw
backs to this method is the extent to
which the seed msy be consumed by birds
and rodents. If the season happens to be
one In which food for these animals Is
scarce, the loss is very heavy. The prob
lem of control oi animal pests, such as
field mice, ground squlrreis, and gophers,
Which eat the tree seeds, and also the
further problem of preventing Ihe depre
dations of rabbits, which are altogether
too fond of the little trees themselves,
whether nursery transplants or flclu
grown seedlings, Is receiving the attention
of the biological survey experts of the
Department of Agriculture.
In soma localities the department has
had to purchase seeu, but most of that
used 'Is gathered by forest service men
themselves. The cost or gathering has
varied for the different regions from
36 cents to II a pound. As a rule, the
seed is collected In the fall months, when
most conifera ripen their, seed. Parties
of three or four men ordinarily work to
gether. When lumbering la in progress
the collectors follow the sawyers and takn
. .e cones directly from the felled trees.
In standing timber, tha .ask is much more
arduous. The men must often climb tall
pines and pull the cones from the branches
as best they can. Where these are on
the extremities and beyond the reach of
the hand, pruning shears are used. The
cones are dropped to .ne ground and then
gathered Into buckets and transferred to
sacks, in wnlch they are carried to a
central point for further treatment.
The extraction of the seeds Is tedious
rather than difficult. In some cases the
cones are spread out upon sheets in the
sun, when, after a time, they open and
the seeds drop out; in other cases It is
necessary to resort to artificial heat.
This Is applied by placing the cones upon
traya with screen bottoms and raising the
temperature of the room to the proper de
gree. The cones open, the winged seeds
fall out, and the seed is afterward
separated from the winga and dirt by a
fanning mill. A good many seeds have
been removed from the cona by hand, but
this is a sore trial to the fingers of the
pickers, and an exceedingly slow process.
OLD STORIES OF THE PLAINS
A Typical Tale Draira from an Ad
venture of Brave "I'ony Ei
Historians Of the frontier tell many
remarkable stories of adventure, of the
pony express riders who blazed the west-
ward way for settlement. Among these
there Is no story more thoroughly typical,
i though there may be other (jtorles more
remarkable, than than that of a young
rider who was assigned to the important
i task of carrying over his division a large
. sum of money. In that mysterious manner
Known only to the frontier life, the news
of this valuable message spread abroad.
: The rider, realising the danger of his trust,
, fastened this money to the under side of
lis saddle blanket, and consigned In its
, etead heavily padded envelopes In the
saddle bags. Carrying his revolver ready
for Instant use, this rider raced in the face
' of certain danger. In a, lonesome spot In a
, valley. In spite of his nerve and expecta
, tlons, he was startled by being confronted
by two men who spiang from out of
shrubs saluting him with the words: "Hold!
' Hands up, Tony Express nil. for we know
' yer, my boy. and what ye're carr'ln'."
I "I carry trm express, and tt'a hanging

, was the plucky response.
Ah. we don't want you. Billy, unless
1 yer force us to call in yer decks, but
' it is what yer carry we want."

bullet shattered the man's arm; driving
the spur into the flanks of hU mare, the

Laughing, Joking and declaring she felt
as young as a girl of lfi, and that no girl of
that age could outdo her in physical en
durance and achievement, Mrs. Branden
burger, Monday afternoon, swam five miles
in the Mississippi river, unaided and landed
without mishap at the wharf of the Century
Rowing club, adjoining the St. Louis Alten
helm. 64 South Brondway, in the presence
of a throng of cheering and admiring spec
tators. The start was made from the east
end of Kads bridge In a hard downpour of
rain at I JO p. m. in the presence of Only a
small crowd. The finish came exactly two
hours later, according to schedule time of
Mrs. Brandenburger. The swim was given
under the auspices of the St. Louis Alten
heim, of which the swimmer Is a member
and marked the beginning of the Alten
helm's annual wurstmarkt and social for
the benefit of the home. The finish was
witnessed by a large crowd of society peo
ple and athletes of St. Louis. The swim
was made in the face of great danger, ow
ing to the rough water and eddies, accord
ing to some of the best athletes in atten
dance, and required a person seasoned in
athletics and swimming to accomplish It
Mrs. Brandenburger encountered a series
of eddies at the foot of Chouteau avenue
which were extremely dangerous, according
to John C. Meyers, one of the best known
swimmers of the country, who accompanied
Mrs. Brandenburger in a boat, and which to
the ordinary swimmer would have been
disastrous. But not so with Mrs. Branden
burger. About the time she reached the
worst of the eddies she told a Joka to her
son, Dr. Louis Brandenburger, who was
following in a boat, and remarked that
"swimming was good exercise."
About an hour after the awlm began the
downpour of rain, which was accompanied
by some lightning, subsided and the aun,
bright and warm, came out and made dis
tinctly noticeable the strokes of the swim
mer as she used first a back stroke, then a
breast stroke, and then a paddle after dog
fashion. Hundreds of persons along both
banks of the river, who were straining their
their eyes watching the energetic swimmer,
saw a nig rainbow as It appeared In the
horizon In the east, but not before the quick
eyes of Mrs. Brandenburger, who, floating
on her back at the time, aaw it and called
out to the spectators to look at it The
swim was thoroughly enjoyed by Mrs.
Brandenburger and ell the more so because
it was raining when she started.
At the conclusion of the swim Mrs. Brand

Just about this time of the year I begin
to wish that I never had gone to a city to
live." remarked Arthur J. Phelps, of New
York, quoted b the Washington Post.
Income Isn't what counts. It's what you
fret out of life.
"Not long ago I visited my old home, a
little town In eastern Illinois, as I was
passing through on a business trip. I ex
pect to go there later In the summer for
stay of two weeks or so to see my folks,
kept my eyes open during the two days
was there. I was Impressed by the air
of comfort and satisfaction that pervaded
the place. I was thoroughly convinced
when I left that the people of that town
were having a much better time than most
people have In New York. 1 began to regret
that I had ever tackled the city proposi
tion. Now, here Is an example:
One of the boys who was graduated from
the high school In my class still lives In the
home town. He has a small business, com
pared to what we call a business in a large
city. He is making, probably, not more
than 12,000 a year. Yet. on that income, in
this town of about 10.000 inhabitants, he

to buy a home In a good street, really, what
you might call a fashionable street. If
ou were speaking of W ashlngton. Tho
location would compare with one In Con

do not prevent him from mowing his own
lawn and managing the sprinkler. In fact,
seems to be the proper thing for the
head of the family to alt on the lawn In
the summer evenings and manipulate the
hose. The only servant Is a girl who does
the cooking and helps the mother to take
care of the children.

Imagine what I could do on four times
as much money in New York. A family
there is practically isolated. A man would
never be known to more than fifty per
sons, except those he might meet In busi
ness. His income would be regarded as In
considerable. A New Yorker pays out
thousands of dollars in rent for his flat
and nver owns a home. He has no lawn,
no trees. His children are compelled to
spend their time within four walls. If they
go into the parks, they must nave a nurse
with them. It's an expensive arrangement,
much the better of me. He Is somebody in
his home and gets a lot of enjoyment out
