He had so many places to visit that the night was gone-before he realized it and broad daylight found him still over in the Green Forest. Then Peter remembered his promise. He scratched a long ear with a long hind foot. "Too bad," said he. "Too bad. I ought to be home right now. But I'm not home, and it Is too late to go now. It would not be aafe to try to tross the Green Meadows in broad daylight. I'll have to spend the day here. If Mrs. Peter has _any sense at all she'll know I'm able Uo take care of myself.

The notification further states that the only organization now recognized by the congress in the membership of the class C. B. R.

' Resting the Tired Bniin v(By Brlce Belden, M.D.) WASHINGTON, Dec. 29.-The total cost of fuel control to the United States government during the war was $4,824,661,. according to the final report of the business managed ot the fuel administration, made public here today. This sum represents all expenditures, national and state, by the fuel administration .from its organization tn September, 1917 to Jane 30, 1919 when the administration virtually was disbanded. The report shows that there.were 62 one-dollar a year men in the fuel- administration. The highest salary on a yearly basis listed in the report is $3,600 a year. AU workers of today, and especially those called "brain workers," are for the greater part of their time confined in their thought action to a single rut. This rut is usually one which involves an enormous-mental and emotional strain, and in the case of those who do very highly specialized work, the brain oomeB to the end of its forces > If used'Sat too great a pressureJn this: everlasting, rut. , It is obvious enough' that brains taxed to the.'Utmost in this way need j a rest. Sleep is, of course, important in the alleviation of .brain-tiredness, | but it Is not sufficient in cases of com- < plete breakdown. Changes of scene, or a rest at a, sanatorium is not as efficient a cure as popular opinion would have it, the. best cure being, not a rest from, bdt a continuance of work. By a continuance of work we do not mean of the same type of'work, but of a new sort of mental gymnastics which will take the energies of the tired brain away from the rut which has caused the trouble. In other words, the brain should in these cases be turned to activities which will cause a soothing reaction to the slavish habit of following one line of thought of action. One proof of the inadequacy of the so-called rest cure Is the fact that of the many tired inventors or journalists, for instance, who have attempted to rest their weary heads at sanator- ] iums, or .by means of long voyages, j few have-had'.any success In their search fof/?relief. The thought hab-1 its..that have been with them so long � folibw Jhem to the place of dull inac-1 tivity where they have sought release, and even bother them when they sleep, pursuing them in the form of bad dreams or wakefulness. There have been a number of suggestions for the diversion of brain energy, and among the most novel is the one that more of our tired business men turn poets in their leisure hours, as in the case of one well- BREAD FOR THE KIDDIES There'B nothing more healthful, more appetizing than good, wholesome Bread.
