Rev. Charles M. Sheldon's effort

Christ would publish a newspaper
was a failure as to the results expect

Topeka, Kansas. His standard of
what Christ's newspaper would be
was not the correct standard or the
people are not ready to receive such
a standard. Christ's doctrine of the

Joseph T. Rothrock of the State
Forestry Commission has purchased
about ten thousand acres of forest
land in the mountainous part of the
north-west corner of Juniata county,
The land extends into Mifflin county.
It will make first rate bunl
ground and trout fishing territory
for tbe next generation. Brook trout
are plentiful in the streams that
course tbe tract and deer and
bear and wild cats are to be met with
occasionally. A few years of protec
tion for game and fish would .develop
it into tne finest of bunting and fish
ing ground. What Professor Roth
rock proposes to da with it is not re
vealed to tbe public. The general
belief is he has purchased it for the
state. The sawable timber, that is
trees large enough to saw into
boards and plank have been cut off
the tract It will take a century to
grow another crop of thick saw-logs.
Long before that time Professor
Rothrock will have been gathered lo
his fathers and perhaps will be teach
ing botany to the inhabitants of
some other planet and there lectur
ing on forestry and telling his
achievements at forestry redemption
on the planet called the Earth. It is
hard to tell bow the people of one
hundred years to come will look up
on tbe forestry commission- If th-y
approve of it, Professor Rothrock
will be looked upon as one of the
patron saints. If tbey disapprove of
tbe work, he will not be considered
in such favoral !e light and tbe land
that is now being bought in such
large quantities will again be sold to
private parties for whatever it will
bring. Dr. Rothrock ranks high as
a botanist, and what be lacks in
knowledge of trees one would have
to go far to find.

Sanaa devest Tricks ay Which Ray

A fox Is entitled to all that Is said
for Its wisdom and sagacity. Not long
ago the Washington hunt of Valley
Forge started a young fox in the North
valley hills, and the hounds .were,nin- L.
nlng It across tbe open field when the
hunters were surprised to see a much
larger fox come from the woods and
run diagonally across the track of the
young fox ahead of tbe hounds, and
when they struck the stronger track
of tbe bigger fox tbey took It up, young
Beynard thereby being saved from be
ing run down aud killed by the bounds.
Old hunters say they have frequently
witnessed this trick when young foxes
were being closely pressed and In dan
ger of beiug run down and killed by
the hounds. Another and an even
sharper trick was' played by an old fox
some weeks ago while being hotly
chased by hounds. Tbe fox bad run
some 20 miles, and while crossing an
open stretch of country was in danger
of being run down and killed. In a
field through which tbe fox Was run
ning' with the hounds close to Its heels
was the cellar of an old house, with a
portion of the walls still standing. The
fox made straight for the old cellar,
leaped Into It and made Its escape
through a narrow opening In the walls.
The bounds, supposing tbe fox was
trapped, dashed Into the cellar pell
mell, only to find Reynard gone and
themselves In a trap, as the hole In the
wall through which the fox bad es
caped was too small to permit them to
