Where there is ques- tion of life or death, money ia money rules out all honor with these murders. There was a prediction that n wave.of vice and debauch would follow the prohibition movement and that men would indulge in all.other forms of excesses. Little was though about the use of wood alcohol and no one prophesied that men would deal in poison camouflaged as liquor. STILL DANGER FROM UNEXPECTED MINES I'OSTOFFICc BURNED.

I "The American bnrarge is swept as i completely as is humanly Admiral Harry S. Knapp, of the Am- erican navy, said to the Associated Press correspondent. "After our area had been pronounced 100 percent clear we re-swept 800 square miles of it (about 15 percct) and foundly only 4 more mines. These were at a buoy- ed spot where the sweepers believed they had missed German Area "The greatest menace sai.l Lieutenant Commander Benson, of the [nternat'nal Mine Destroying Commit- tee, "is the unswept German area.

Ono does not usually connect the j thought of festvities with a hospital ercn at holiday time, but it was tho -writers pleasure to go through River- view Hospital on Christmas day and he was amazed at the Holiday at- mosphere 'which prevailed over the place. In the, nurses dormitary a small and beautiful decorated tree adorned the library table, surrounded by gifts and marvelous boxes of sweets, presented the. nurses by the several physicians jn the city. In the dining room the perfectly appointed table was set for the Christ- nun dinner. In the center was a large vase of calla lilies, the gift of the student nurses to their superinlen- -fent, and this vase was surrounded by various kinds of fruit sent in by a Member of the hospital board. in the hospital proper, the same festve spirit was shown, one of the patients having a diminutive Christ- mas tree in his room hung with gifts from several thoughtful persons out- side the hospital as well as remem- brances from the nurses. Each invalid received a gift from the atcnding physician. The writer regrets that more of the Grand Rapids people did not visit the "hospital that day and share in the Christmas joy which prevailed in the building. With the recent wonderful improve- ments in furnishings and equipment, and the inauguration of a most com- plete system of nurses training and .education this Certainly marks a new era in our local hospital, and the mark should have the hearty coopera- tion of every person in the city.

Armed merchants Also the British navy has just arm- ed all merchantmen, except those call- ing at Irish ports, with highly-vclcoity rifles that.they may destroy any mine sighted. So many ships calling at Irish ports have been raided for arms that the admiralty believed it inadvisable to add to this danger. Two Irish fishing- boats off Cork re- cently sighted a drifting mine. The captains mistook it for a cask of ruin or wine and made a race for it. The winner was the loser. His boat war, sunk. The Admiralty has had several re- ports of a drifting mine about GOO miles southeast of New York which officers hope some of the newly-arm- ed merchantment will destroy if it has not already been rendered harmless by the elements.

While there are not as many animals per- haps as there was a generation ago, trappers say there has been a decided increase espcially during th past sir years. Muskrat, mink, wessel, wolves, fox, skunks, and once in a while a black bear, furnish business for the trappers. The present price of furs making' the business a paying one.

Ashland, Wis., Dec. one despised popular is now being sawed into lengths convenient for shipping and is being sent to the paper mills of Wisconsin. It is characteristic of cut- over lands to become quickly covered with rapid growing popular, which i attains a considerable height in three or four years although if left to it- self the slow growing pins would in. the course of years create new for- ests. In the interval between logging a land and its conversion into a farm five or ten years later, the land in- variably becomes covered with second growth timber. It has been used a limited extent for fence rails and fuel, but the high price of paper and the demand for wood pulp has stim- ulated the cutting of poplar for the manufacturt of paper.
