could be made, it was necessary for

Democratization of rifle shooting

States is the object of radically new

year -the rule that gives enlisted
men of ten of the twelve posts of
honor on the team. 'Ever since the

Congress in 1903, shooting member membership

alike has gone, for the most part, to

and rifle tournaments were to serve
the cause of national defense in a
thoroughgoing manner, they must

decrease in the size of the bull's eye
is the result of the really amazing
advance in marksmanship among
both militia and service contestants
since the tournament got under way
a decade ago. Bull's eye hitting had
become so easy that it was necessary
to increase the difficulty in order to
maintain lively interest.

TREES AND YET MORE TREES
Matter of Duty for Every Man Who Is
Able, to Plant One in Hla
Life, at Least.
A noted philanthropist once said:
"If I knew that I should die tomorrow,
I should plant a tree today." He did
not mean that tree planting was the
eort of action to be deferred as long
as possible; he counted It rather a
deed with which one might make a
good farewell to earth and who shall
say that he was not right?
There is nothing more beautiful,
more dignified, more valuable in the
broadest sense of the word than a fine
old tree. There are few things more
lasting. The splendid cathedrals of
the thirteenth century are kept-in
condition only by constant and loving

the landscape when the corner stone
of Amiens was laid is still alive. New
ii.ngmna settlers moved elms from the
woods to their dooryards and road roadsides
sides roadsides almost three centuries ago and
the same trees are there today. The
few "cedars of Lebanon" which still
mark the site of forests from which
th i ships of Tarshish were built may
nu.nber in their thinning ranks indi individuals
viduals individuals which saw the inarch of God
frey de Bouillon, and the counter countermarch
march countermarch of Saladin.
Plant trees. Do not wait for the
government to reforest some distant
mountains. Reforest as much of your
own holdings as you may. You have
no better chance of satisfaction now
and grateful remembrance later than
may be found in planting trees.
FOR A WOODLAND PARADISE
Chicagoans Determined That Their
City Shall Be Abundantly Sup Supplied
plied Supplied With Trees.
. In view of the advance which city
beautification has made during the
last few years, especially in Chicago,
Arbor day has a definite significance.
Tree planting exercises have been
held in all parts of the city, about two
hundred and fifty thousand white
pine seedlings being provided for t
ja,iua, ya.ca.at 101s ana roadways. Last
year 200,000 elm seedlings were plant planted;
ed; planted; the year before 300,000 Russian
mulberries, and in 1911 a total of 280 280-000
000 280-000 catalpa seedlings were given a
chance to grow. If all these grew
Chicago would be, not a garden city,
but a forest city. The mortality rate
luuu5 titseunngs, nowever, is almost
as great as it is among slum babies.
If a reasonable fraction of these
young trees grow to maturity Chicago
will be in time a woodland paradise.
An authority on arboriculture as ap applied
plied applied to cities says the ratio should be
one living shade tree to every five in inhabitants.
habitants. inhabitants. In the absence of a tree
census it is impossible to say how
near Chicago approaches this ideal.
Be that as it may, the principle of
Arbor day is wholesome. It i3 but
one phase of the general tendency of
the day to instill into the children an
instinct for some of the finer things
that older folks have thought they
were too busy to cultivate.

CLEANING UP AND GROWING

Cleaning up is limited in meaning.
Homes may go through housecleaning,
householders may clean streets and
sidewalks and remove every rubbish

efforts may be made, will be made, to
have every bit of litter carted away.
That is a beginning.
The city may be made beautiful by
nature's work. Plants respond to ev every
ery every little care. Flowers bloom when
almost neglected. Is it not right not
only to clean up but to start the habit
of growing plants bearing flowers?

city, with hundreds of windows in the

potted plants on every sill. Trail Trailing

walls, though they are "artistic. In
midsummer the factory is a joy to
those who like to see evidences of na nature's

Greater things can be accomplished
along this line. A space two yards

factory or store will yield abundantly.

About once a month, always on a
Sunday. Maurice Danby motored from
the city down to his brother's farm
for a brief visit.
Young Mr. Danby held a position in
a city department. His standing in
social life was good, and it was known
that he had a fair-sized bank account.
So far as friends or relatives knew,
he had never been in love, and was
not likely to be. Therefore it was a
shock to his sister-in-law when he ar arrived

"Look here. Sarah, you have got
to help me out."
"What is it, -Maurice? she asked.
"I'm in love."
"You can't be."
"But I am."
"Well, won't the girl have you?"
"I haven't asked her."
"Then go right off and do it."
"Listen to me, woman. I came down
by the old post road this morning, in instead

miles above here is an old red farm farmhouse."

"There was a girl there."
"Yes; Kitty Granger."

smiled the relative. "You see a good good-looking
looking good-looking girl at a farmhouse gate, and
ten seconds later you are in love and
thinking of marriage."
"I am going to know Kitty Granger.
It may not take two days to bring it
about, and it may take two weeks."
Monday morning he entered his
auto and started away with a wave of
his hand. He was bound for the post
road and Farmer Granger's. When he
saw the old farmer at work in the
field by the roadside an Idea came to
him. He stopped.
"Do you want to sell that calf tied
in your front yard?" he asked.
"Yep," was the reply.
"Orter be wuth six dollars."
Not ten feet behind the calf was the
veranda. Mr. Danby walked around the
veal cutlets three times and then
took a. seat on the veranda to view
him from a new point.
He coughed and shuffled his feet, but
no one came out.
Miss Kitty was heard singing in the
house, but she didn't appear. After a
quarter of an hour had passed away
the schemer had to return to the farm farmer

"I will come back tomorrow and see
"Just as you will," was th.e reply.
It was with a good deal of chagrin
that the young man got into his auto
and drove away.

He motored boldly upto the house,
but as he reached the veranda, Mr.
Granger came around the corner from
the kitchen and sighted him and
"Came back for the calf, eh? Well,
I thought you would. He's worth

"I was going to see your daughter
about a new piano."
"Oh, the piano can wait. Will you
take the calf away with you in the

business, you must know that calves

He led the calf out to the gate, and
Mr. Danby had to follow. He had to
do more. He had to help lift the calf
into the auto and make him fast and
hand over six dollars and drive away.
When another day came Mr. Danby
was ready he didn't know for what.
He set off without a plan. If he passed
the house he might be shouted to to
stop and buy hogs or hens, but It might
be his luck also to see Miss Kitty at
the gate. He had just determined to
take his chances when he saw her

the city goes ahead and puts them

If the owner is not able to raise the

Do you think this is right? Are the
