Lisbon's Energetic Agitator Against the Maehold Law Endeavors Patriotically to Comply with the Euel Administra- tion's Recommendations and encounters Thrilling Experiences—It's a Wonder Pie's Alive to Tell About It, When motoring to and from our county metropolis you have doubtless often noticed a rather remarkable edi- fice of the Hibernio-ludian style of architecture standing somewhat back from the highway surrounded by a windbreak of native timber. This is where I live. The house is very old. There is a tradition in the family that it was built in the summer of 1643. As to the accuracy of this I can only say that it must have been built in the summer; for it was evidently intended for a summer residence, and while the consensus of opinion as expressed by Oldest Inhabitants is that, either as a result of increased inclination of the earth's axis or of inefficiency at Wash- ington, or of both, the winters are becoming more severe and my residence really seems to be- come more summery as the seasons roll. This, too, despite the fact that so large a part of my income, ever since I had one, has been spent for clapboards, tar-paper, shingles, etc., that it might almost be said that my life has been one long struggle to keep the hot air in and the cold air out. Personally I am not greatly incon- venienced by low temperatures and this includes occasions during the present winter where my wife has sug- gested tne advisability of tying flat- irons to our feet before retiring for the purpose of insuring against being blown out of bed during the night; for whenever my temperature declined un- duly it is always possible to restore it to even more than normal registry by perusing my copy of the Maehold law. However, it has never been possible to extend the benefits of this expedi- te nt. at least to any appreciable extent, to other members of the family, and as 10 keeping the fish-globe thawed or preventing the freezing of the more than fifteen bushels of potatoes which we are hoarding in onr cellar, it has proved entirely inadequate. One day in mid-December as I was departing* for Ogdensburg to arrange at the bank for my wife's Christmas credit, that lady remarked that it might be well io bring home some coal. This led to a long, confidential talk with the Fuel Administrator. At first I surmised from the nature and num- ber of his inquiries that he suspected me of Pro-German tendencies or at least of falsifying my income tax state- ment. I was, therefore, agreeably sur- prised when I finally discovered that he was just trying to convince me that 1 didn't need any coal. Upon this I rallied and succeeded in obtaining a copy of The Manual of Instructions from the United Slates Forestry Com- mission and had loaded into my sleigh a collection of black boulders each of which lacked only the inscription 1620 to niakf the resemblance remarkably Mroitc; to that other rocky fragment which so materially assisted my an- i-isfors in climbing out of the May- flower. The attempt to burn these in- creased the resemblance, and thus we were brought face to face with the Fuel Problem. As 10 the Pilgrims above alluded to, I have often wondered how they would have landed or whether they conld have landed at all if chance had direct- ed the course of their'voyage a few leagues north or south of that Historic Rock. But the ways of Providence are wonderful, and never was the truth of his reflection more plainly exempli- fied than in the matter of the Fori ry Manual to which I have just referred. Although the Administrator ^d re- fused to accept any eomp-.-usatlon whatever for th -ochure (French, I presume) I found upon examination thai it contained information of great value upon the subject of obtaining lots of wood from wood lots. \The dimensions of a cord of cord- wood are A ft. x 4 x 8.\ \Cedar J.s an evergreen,\ \Timber when felled may be cut up jn the woods or battled out into the clHariris' for that purpose.\ These are some of the gems unearthed before T had been readine an hour. About the smoe time my attention was attracted b\ the able and timely editorials upon tl/e siibjeei of v. nod craft appearing in nit- metropolitan and local press. I '•an trulv M;IV that I never knew a time when r« much valuable information for furnieiT v.:<> lying around loose. We have lit. tail', advice to burn if we •011M onl\ burn it. Tlo- coiiiimii il severity of the weatliei rniiMdt red In the light of the AiliniiilFlr.'.tor'! purling bint that I was riot to look him up again in less than tv.o months, drove me to the woods. A rielfbboi who has par! interest Ju uiHvkeg, teiliiiically known as a woodlol. agreed to allow me to procure fuel therefrom upon a fifty-flfiy basis. Thit- Minted to me not only eminently fair but even irenerous on his part. Who would not be willing to embrace a propni-ii) of Dial nature In regard to almost any form of farm products, as chickens or v.-atermelons? Even when he explained thai he did not mean that 1 was to take every other tree in his plantation for my own use but was also to cut and draw the intervening trees for hit- use, I thought il looked good and made preparation accordingly. We have always- kepi an axe, prlnclpal- h for my wife's use. fhopplng kind- ling on a concrete floor has made il safe fur anyone to use. (\Tose exam- ination .'•hnwed ilia) its head had a tendency lo fly off. This defect was, however, remedied after some ex-peri- tiieniing by wrapping a piece of pink calico around tin- helve after the man- ner of a first aid bandage and then tapping il genilv but firmly into place. Afterward when It gave trouble 1 wet the rag and froze it on and ex- perienced no further difficulty. The Manual advisi->• the use of a crosn-cut saw in tailing timber but as the han- dles upon i-hlit implement are six feet apart and I had no one t« assist me, I did unl consider il available for my purpose. I have only the unual farm choreK to attend to in the morning. We keep onlv twenty cows and six horses. The milk station Is only four miles and a half away and since the wells went dry, water for the stock can be obtain-, ed at about half that distance. So it was easy for me to get an early start for the woods without rising earlier than 4:30. New Year's morning r was ready to start at 11:47. Tucking the Manual into my pocket with axe on shoulder and patriotic fervor in my heart, I started woodward. The tim- ber was only about two miles from the house and the snow a trifle over two feet in depth. By the time I reached the scene of action I was a little out of breath and so sat down upon a stump to take a glance at the Manual. Mr. W. C. Bryant is, I believe, au- thority for the statement that the groves were originally used as places of worship. This may be true. But, believe me, anyone who attended ser- vices there on New Year's Day, 1918, needed to be careful about letting the sermon put him to sleep; for in such case the probabilities were strongly in favor of his waking up a frozen corpse. Therefore I did not rest long before 1 felt the need of more exercise and be- gan the search for fuel. Many of the trees were so pretty that it really seemed a pity to cut them and when \j reflected that I could destroy in a few minutes a tree which it would prob- ably take years to grow, my reluctance to chop became more pronounced. Afterward I found that the difference between the time required for growing a tree and that necessary to fell it is not so great as I had imagined. How- ever, the cold helped me to a choice and I selected a towering elm. The Manual says that the first steps in felling a tree is to make a peg of while or silver birch like a tent-pin with which to mark the direction in which you wish the trunk to fall and then let the tree fall upon it. My teeth chattered some while attending to this preliminary but soon stopped after T began to chop. It was soon apparent that I had made a fatal mistake in for- getting to grind my axe. The tree, too, seemed to have followed a principle of growth peculiar to itself; for its fibers were twisted together like those of Manila rope. I removed my coat and mittens, soon after my sweater and then my vest till its bushes, dec- orated with these garments, the sylvan glade began to resemble a second- hand sale at Potash aHtf Perlmutter's. About the time I reached my shirt I also reached the conclusion that it was useless to look for any decisive re- sults where I was and so I moved around to the opposite side of the tree. Another hour's labor producing noth- ing more tangible that a perspiration that froze upon my hair and whiskers and turned my shirt t o solid ice when- ever I stopped to breathe, I was forced to disregard the directions of the Manual and began working around the tree like a beaver until I had com- pletely boxed the compass. Still, though apparently cut entirely off the stump the thing remained upright and I had withdrawn a few paces to con- sider whether il would not be better after all to leave it until next year and try something else when I heard a tremendous roar and felt a tremen- dous impact upon the upper wall of my cranial cavity. My first thought was that the Ger- mans had landed. My second—well, there wasn't any seeond just then, but when consciousness began to return and I had dug my -way out of the snow and was surprised to find that the eussed tree for reasons best known to itself, instead of falling upon the peg above mentioned, had fallen upon me and driven me about four feet into the snow. Whether the depth of the latter or the thickness of my skull contributed more to tbe saving of my life I shall probably never know, but I have never since placed so much confidence in the theory that driving a peg into the ground has any real influence upon the direction in which a tree shall fall. About this time the declining sun bumped Into the icy horizon and threw a shower of crimson sparks all over the western sky—or words to that effect. Therefore, 1 concluded to go home. There was another reason for this, ] wan hungry. My \wife in a ser- ies of experiments conducted in co- operation with the Food Administra- tion, had recently discovered that an admixture of twenty per cent, pure saw-dust with the other ingredients of her bread did not make any appreci- able difference In Its palatibillty or nutritive qualifies. As a matter of fact, I may say that 1 had long sus- pected such a possibility. But prob- ably not even the vicissitudes of world war nor the urge of carnage inspired patriotism would have impelled me to hint at anything of the sort in her presence. However, when she made the admission herself I saw no reason for contradiction. Perhaps I might as well say here and now that when Herb Hoover has more to say about the sort of \viltles\ a man's wife feeds to her husband than that husband has ever dared to gay, a blow la struck at the authority of the Head of The Family more dangerous by far than anything that the Huns can do to us. But to resume, As I waded home that evening under the hungry stars, even tho thought of war cookery was not unappetizing and my wife remark- ed when I drew bar-it from the supper table that if 1 had succeeded In chop- ping anything off of our fuel bill it would certainly have to be tacked onto the grocery bill. She's queer In some ways. During tbe month following I got down a lot of Umber without any more serious accidents except the loss of my Manual. 1 telegraphed at once to Washington for another, but th» supply was exhausted and I struggled on without It. 1 Bhall probably find it when the snow goes off. While chop- ping I viK often annoyed by the fear that urnu-rupuloUB persons might ap- Tiropriate twine of my wood during the ; night. 1 was therefore much relloved one morning to find It was securely hidden under two feel more of suow, After a while I began lo wonder how ,1 myself was going to find it when I wanted it, Thin problem was, of Feb. 26.—Blustery weatber!

However, I liave often thought while perspiring in the hay field in mid-July that farm- ers choose the very worst time of year for attending to their cow feed. If their extreme conservatism (not to give it the real name of pig-headed- ness) would permit them to post- pone haying to a later and cooler period, how much better it would be for all concerned! I shall probably get up my wood this year about July, and it will certaihly'lje much pleasant- er working in the shade than out in the sun-scorched hay field. In the meantime I know where my fuel is even though I cannot burn it, and the satisfaction of knowing that if I can't get it neither can anyone else. I must close now as I have to at- tend the funeral of a neighbor who was killed the other day by a falling tree. I haven't heard the particulars (that's what I'm going to'the funeral for) but he probably neglected to study the Manual before beginning to chop. Some people are so careless! . ' More Thah Ever. .
