Urandfleld, never vat, heard of out- vide his own netglib rhood until a few days ago. Even t he casts only one v o t e in tho House- o Kepreseiitatives, Ho casts tt with t te minority party at that. Besides, h . is a. wet, which nute him in a h t i l l smaller minority. However, it is j u u because he is in those two ralnoritie: thai. Rerpresenta- livo Urandflcld stan Is out as he does. 1C he were a Reput 'lean, wet or dry, he would a t t r a c t li tie attention--^being personally, th i: far, quite- an ob- souro individual. H simply would bo taken for granted, iccaus© it always has been assumed that any Republican who happens to bo nominated will carry the Sec nd Congressional District of Massach isetUs, whence Mr. Grandfleld comes to Washington. * * * It is a feat to be ather proud of, to win tor Congress! a i a Democrat in a district which ncwei 1 elected a Democrat before. Still, such rx/Utic il upsets do occur, occasionally. They create soni' thing of a flutter, but usually not a regular sensation, like Rcpresentativi GrundHeld'B victory. The thing that g ves its advertising value to Mr. Grand lekl's performance Is tho fact that Mi Gi'audfietd is the first Democrat uve · to be elected in history by ex-Pre: idsnt Calvin Coolidge's own congiv; ^loual district. * * Naturally the D mocrata in "Washington, are tryiiif to claim H as u great triumph lor their party--but it is doubtful U it re ,lly IB. On the contrary, as a pariy, it may prove to bo a dia tor for them. When a party st onghold'a garrison floptj over to tho ucmy, it generally has u reason Cor dc uig so.

P. has buffered a substantial kick in the fl-lats no matter how it Is looked at. -Novort iclesis, the solidification ot \\et sentiment in northern Democratic ranks, a.s so confirm uoti.siy suggested in thia VJassacbusottH result, IB not particularly calculated to reassure the loattora £ a party with tho unalterably bo ae dry proclivities of the iJomocracy south of tho Mason-Dixon lino. P( ssibly the friction between the aeclions can be hashed up during tlii: y«f.r's congressional activities, but bow about 1932? liven if it foreshadows m,ore or less disruption in both bitf political KToups, ho G.

Coal Companies And Trees Greondburcr Review Ever if the coal mining business is in a bi-.d way in Pennsylvania the nub- lie tspb-it ot the companies Is not dead. Last rear 100 mining companies plante-1 1,100,000 trees. Almost ae many as any elate has sot out. In Penns ,-lvanla, since 1916, 12,000,000 treea have oeon planted. It h.iti Been pointed out, tliat the cotil mining industry )« a larg consumer of wood and therefore should help replenish the supply. They own the land upon tfhich the seedlinge arc planted and m a matter of fact reforestation of thij Idnd should "bring hack to eome of th lean acres a portion of their original richness. There is another angle to it, however, which may in the long run help the coal companies out, The farms ownec by them have always been regarded as a neglighle asset. In fact most coal company fame eie a Ha- billty. Few, if any, coal mining companies have been able to make their (arm* pay and quite a f f w of them indeed have been regarded as a nuisance which must be tolerated. However, when these treefc hetve sufficient growth, timber value will be creati-d which should «trt considerable in the way of wealth to tho companies. '['hie? Breaks Itecord. AL3EMARLK, N.

Psittacosis, Parrot Disease, Is Not New Peittaoosia lias been prominent in the news lor weefca, following the diagnosis, of an Illness In Maryland as "parrot'e fever." The "parrot disease," eo called, ih a novelty to physicians o£ the United Stales, although, it is by no meane new to medical science. With symptoms etrougly resembling pneumonia and typhoid fever, psittacosis has presented difficulties in accurate diagnosis. Doctors have assured the public, incidentally, that the disease is rare, and that there is no danger o)! an epidemic. Tho "parrot's fevar" has been known for many years as a disease of the Psittacl or, as the order te usually called Psittaciformee -- tho zoological order to which parrots belong. The name of the order, according to Webster's! Dictionary, comes from the Ijatia word "peittacus," meaning a parrot; the Latin word la borrowed Irom th« Greek. Psittacosis ie formed the auine way, from "pslt- taltoe,' 'mcaiiiag parrot, and "osis," a Greek suffix used in medical works to mean "an abnormal or diseased condition." Peittacoeij, therefore, from its derivation would mean a diseased condition in a panot. This particular disease of parrots is communicable to man. Other "parrot words" with Iho Lratin-CJrqeJc "pslttacus" In their formation, aro tho following: psittacinra, meaning pertaining Lo parrots; iwlt- tacinte, a, mineral of a greenish "parrot color;" and other rather rare scientific terms. Parrots are scientifically described ad xygodactyl birds, which sounds formidable, but really means that, like woodpeckers, the parrots are yoke- footed, "having the toes arranged in pairs, two in front and two behind."
