College of Agriculture and Forestry ; at the University of Nankin, In a ds- j tailed report to the American Forestry association. i "China, with her floods. Is an ex- i ample to the world of the need of re- ! forestation," he says. "A conservative 1 expenditure for various forestry enterprises, mainly nursery work and forest. planting, is from $200.i0 to n quarter million dollars, the production : of 1W,0H0.0K trees in over l.Wto nur- i series, and the planting of 2o,iHKUH0 to 30,CXiO trees on KKUXH) acres of j land. This may seem small when com- j pared with some other countries, but large when one considers the hark- ' ground and the fact that China's In- ; terest in forestry is only a few years old." j "The magnitude of the devastation in the Anhwei province," says t "buries Lathrop Pack, president of the association, in giving out the report of Dean Reisner, "may be seen when . we consider that the flooded are is twice the area of Massachusetts, or ' about ir.X square miles. i Many Rail Connections Cut. I "The population of the r.ay state Is ! h is 1- s in the around 4,XX.iHX people, whic i00.OiO less than the sufferers flooded areas. The crowded conditions will at once be seen. Rail connections between Shanghai and Tientsin and I'ekin were son cut bv the Anhwei floods caused when tho Hmiar- tre lake and lt tributaries overflowed about sixty miles to the north of Nankin.

"I had the opportunity of going through the floated sections. It was a teftiMe sitrht.

"The newest provincial development." says Dean Reisner's report, "has been in Shantung province, which has come into world prominence through tl Shantung award. of the Paris peace conference. Thls vork was organized by Mr. "A provincial forest service has been ,'stablished. with a chief forester and ieven assistants.

J., who says he celebrated his ore hundred and forty-fifth birthday the other day, has decided to retire and take a rest. "When a man has worked as hard as I have and is getting: on in years," said Dr. Smith; '"it's about time for him to qu!t working and begin to enjoy himself." ! Doctor Smith's assertion regarding his age is supported by old residents of Egg Harbor, some of whom are over ninety. Even the most skeptical townsfolk admit he is well over one hundred. When he became a resident of Egg Harbor 23 years ago he asserted he was one hundred and twenty. Doctor Smith was keenly interested in the world s series; for he lived in Xew York for many years. He recently took up smoking "My father always told me that it was an injurious practice and stunts the growth. he said. "I guess I have reached my full stature by this time, so I dont suppose a couple of cigars a day will hurt me." Ioctor Smith says he was born on Septemler 177t, so he Is about ten weeks younger than the United States. His grandfather, he says, lived to be one hundred and twenty-four, and his father was killed when he was quite a yox;ng man, comparatively speaking, at the age of seventy, by the falling of a tree.

How John Peverley managed to capture the dashing and beautiful Margaret Ffoliot nobody ever knew. John left school about the same time I did and went Into a banking office. He used to toil there for eight hours a day. when he might have been playing tennis at the country club, or hunting, or amusing himself traveling. And yet that slow coach won Margaret Ffoliot and they went to Europe for a two-months' honeymoon. You can imagine that we fellows i looked forward with some Interest to Margaret's return. Thev came hark and rented a small place at Forest j Glade. Bob Flinders had been Margaret's best friend before the marriage, and we were all anxious to know whether he would go to her house or not. I happened to be there when Rob called for the first time, and it was evident from the way John shook hands with I him that he hadn't the remotest idea that people used to wag their heads ' when Rob and Margaret were spoken j of. j After the return Rob semed quite i reconciled to his fate. He was the ; most persistent caller at John's house ' usually at times when John wasn't around. The heads began to wag j again as before the marriage and ! some peAple wanted f to give John a tip that Margaret and Rob were get- j ting too friendly. It wasn't that they j had any sympathy with John, for we ' all felt that he bad done a dirty trick In cutting poV Roh out; but we want- ! ed to see how John would take It. j "John will take It as he takes j everything." said Jim Allen. "He'll j say, Oh, really!' and dismiss the sub- ject. Can you imagine John playing , a man's part in anythinsrf" We soon found out that Margaret ; was dissatisfied with John. She was ; ashamed of him. i It was a few weeks after their re-turn that some of the boys fixed up a joke on John. It seemed that Mar- garet had written Roh one or two letters In the old days, and she had wanted them bark. R b didn't want to give them bark, because they ap- ; pealed to his vanity, and they gave him a sort of hand over Marearet. He -didn't show us the letters, but be did tell us the bargain he made with Mar- ; garet. He promised to give them back If she would give Him a kiss, said j kiss to be delivered on the first con- ' venient occasion. j Of course. Rob didn't really mean j that, because he was a good enough ! sort of fellow, but still, he wouldn't j have been averse from taking one if ! he had had the opportunity. He told j us that Margaret had laughlntrly no- !-cepted his proposition, and that the t transaction was arranged to take place in the litt'e garden at the back ; of the Country club, where nobody : ever goes. Rob was to be there with j the letters and Margaret with the : kiss, and Rob armnged that those of i us who wanted to see the fun should j watch from the windows of the bil- i Hard room, which would le sure to be j empty, because the tables were being j repaired. j TheiV wns a grape arbor jut at the j side adjoining the place where Roh j and Margaret were to meet, and at first we had thought of hiding in I there. Rut Rob was afraid our mirth would be heard and he would get Into trouble, and. as we found that j weTia l a perfect view from the win- dows. we were very well satisfied. It j was as good as a play. j Margaret was ti e first of the actors to arrive, and we saw her pacing up and down the garden in an agitato! ! sort of way. j Rob ad the letters In his hand and 1 he gave them to her. I "You see, I trust you, Margaret." ; he said, and he thrust his head up so ; that he could wink at us. Margaret j was t'vo much agitated to see what he I was doing. She kept looking right I and left, as though she were afraid, i and at last, when she had to deliver the gojods. she looked into the grape j arbor Instead and John came out. Bob stood smiling at John ' in a foolish sort of way, and when John spoke, his voice had a rasp In It. "You dirty blackguard," he said, "peel oft your coat and look alive. I'm going to thrash you," Boh whipped off his coat and, run-nlngat John, suddenly ducked and hit him a fiendish blow just under the belt. It wasn't sport, but it was fup- i ny to see John double up suddenly, j We thought that he was done for, j but all at once he seemed to straight- ! en and came back at Bob wtth a j thump on the nose which started the i blood. And after that Bob didn't seem j to have a show. Jtob was a sight when John got through with him. He was coated with blood and filth, and he was yelling "murder !' so loud that all the waiters had come up and stood round watching the game. John gave his arm to Margaret, and as they walked off together I noticed that she seemed to cling to him In a sort of manner that I hadn't seen her do before. As t said, you never know what a woman will do. No, Xrargaret has cut ur set now and goes In for the highbrows. She's real fond of John: It seems a shame that such charming woman should be linked ap with a slowcoach like that. As for Boh. he's gone West.
