Shingle Manufacturers Seek
Retention of Proposed
Washington, Aug. 2. Reports
among northwestern lumbermen
that an attempt would be made to
overturn the import duty of 50 cents
per thousand on shingles, carried by
the Fordney tariff bills, brought a
delegation of shingle manufacturers
before the senate finance committee
today in defense of the schedule.
Representative Johnson, republican,
Washington, headed the delegation
and announced that if there was to
be a fight "we want to be counted
in "in upport of the duty."
George A. JBcrgatrom, of Everett,
and E. E. Cale fo Raymond, Wash.,
were Heard in behalf of the rate
. which they said measured the dif

Each of the witn'esse maintained
that a higher duty than 50 cents ac

satisfaction with tho rate as pro
vided in the Fordney bill. They
contended , that Canadian shingle
makers were driving plants out of
business on this side of the line be
cause of cheaper1: Canadian produce

per Jay. They liked beechnuts-
all three. And aomhow they got the
notion that the beech tree belonged
to them and to nobody else.
One fine crisp fall day when John
nie Green was in school, a fourth
nut-lover wandered down th road,
stopped right between the wheel
tracks, and sniffed. It was Grunty
"I smell beechnuts." he cried with
a' joyful squeal. And crashing into
the light underbrush along the road

boon Orunty came upon a cluster
of the three-sided nuts, clinging In
side a bur that the frost had split
open. He ate the sweet nuts, shell
and all. And with many a grunt of
delight he grubbed beneath the tree
from which the nuts had fallen. His
keen nose led him to burs that
jonnnie ureen had trampled over
that very morning, and missed.

aloud "I wonder why nobody ever
told me about this beech tree.
' Perhaps it was because you are

"Well. Mr. Pig's son, I notice

There was truth in what Frisky

Constantinople. Aug. 2. (By
The Associated Press.) It appears
probable that active military opera

be halted for weeks owing to lack
of water. The Greeks are making
atrenuous efforta to supply their
troops, sending to the front in au
tomobiles thousands of wine bar

filed with water. The Turks, who
are suffering as . a result of the

How can little children be taught
not to piay witn matches r
Playing with matches is so ex
cessively dangerous a thing that
children should never be allowed to
form the habit. Matches should.be
kept out of their reach. If, by any
chance, a child does obtain poses
slon of matches, and light them, an
explanation should be made of the
danger of the practice; and in order
to guard against possible accidents,
some punishment certain to be re
membered by the particular child
should be given. Playing with match'
ep is one of the things each child
must learn without delay not to do.
Do Wa Call 8me Pwplo "Snob?"
. Used in the sense of one who is
not a gentleman and who therefore
overestimates the value of rank and
position, snob" has a history as in
teresting as any word in the English
language for it really belongs to the
same class a "mob," being an ab-
breivation for a diatinctly unwielded
During the latter part of the 18th
century and the early part of the
19th". a number of the "exclusive"
colleges in England laid great em
phasis upon the fact that the ma
jority of their pupil wre from the
ranks of the nobility; in ome cases
being even of royal birth. This of
course, Had tha effect of raising the
school in the estimation of those
who, while wealthy enough to send
their sons there for education, did
not have the prestige of title. In
order to differentiate between the
scions of the noble houses and those
of lesser birth it waa customary to
enter the names of the latter class
upon the school register with the no
tation "a, nob," thia being an ab
breviation of the Latin "sine npbUit
ate" or "without nobility."
It was from this source that
Thackery secured the word which
he coined to describe George IV,
and which afterwards clipped into
the language as a simple and easy
definatlon of one who, throughhls
wish to appear a gentleman, view
rank and position with so much rev
erence that he clearly betrays his
more humble origin.
