HAZARDS THAT ARE WORTH HEEDING - It' would be a good thing if all auto : .mobile .drivers were required to learn a little lesson concerning the poten- tial destructive power of a moving car, and'the great distances required to stop. A f\-r Pi-ivins at the- slow sr.ai-d of twenty miles an hour requires i'O ieet to stop under the best of eircum-, stances . after 4-wheel brakes are, applied—^and with the average driver, it will have moved. 14% feet before he is able to apply the brakes. At 30 miles an hour, it will go 22 feet be- fore he;,Applies the brakes, and an- other' 45 feet .will be required to '•bring if to a- stop; If it is moving 40 miles an hour, the brakes will not. take hold until the car has gone 2P feet, and 800 feet more wil' be covered before the car is stopped. At. extremely high speeds these distances are increased many times, How Would you like to ,be. in an automobile that has just leaped from a precipice one hundred, or more feet high? You would be just as safe (at least until you hit the rocks below) as you are rolling along the* hi'h- ways mile after mile at customary road speeds. An automobile traveling 40 miles an hour has the same ca- pacity for inflicting damage, or the same smash as it would have from a straight drop through the air 54 feet —and filing 60 miles per hour, as if it were dropped 120 feet. The automobile is one of *he most useful, and one of the most poten- tially dangerous, of human inventions. Its safe operation requires constant caution, knowledge and regard for the rights of others. Because a per-, centage of drivers have lacked those qualities the highways of America see the unnecessary deaths of more than 30,000 people annually. Last year a slight improvement was regis- tered—this year we can do a great deal more r f we make the effort. It is a problem that is up' to the individ- ual driver, and its solution is in his hands. Longest Epitaph Relates Appreciation of Doctor Some time ago there was found hid- den in the cellar of an old house in the city of St. George, Bermuda, a large brass tomb tablet dated 1778. On it was found what is considered to be one of the longest epitaphs on rec- ord. It is also believed to be one of the most elaborate eulogies ever pro- nounced on a huuinn being. Recording the good works of a well-known doc- tor of the times, the tablet, which was placed in St. Peter's, the oldest church in Bermuda, rends us follows: To the tiHMi-.or.v of Georjru Forbes, M. D., whom living a singular com- placency of manners joined with many useful talents and eminent virtues. Rendered highly estimable, blessed with a convivial disposition, in the cheerful hour of social festivity he shone irrepreliensible and an agreeable companion, ever assiduous in further- ing good humor and the enjoyments of sociality friendly to mankind. His endeavors to mitigate the evils of life which he bore himself with temper and philosophy were not alone confined to the healing art, long exer- cised by him with much reputation, but were likewise exerted in compos- ing differences, restoring ancient friend- ships interrupted and promoting peace, harmony and mutual good understand- ing among his fellow men, having ac- quitted himself with approbation in the several relations of life. As he had lived, respected and be- loved, so. he died, lamented and re- gretted for those virtues and many others which though not enreglstered on this tablet are forever engraven on the loving memory of his surviving friends. He died Jan'y ftrh. 1778, aged 68 years.—Pathfinder ? 'mrazlne.

SHRUBS ON HOME GROUNDS \Find the shrub that answers, as nearly as possible, the requirements Of- the-location to be planted.- Too often a person starts '.with : • a pre- \dilection for a certain shrub, with the result that it gets planted in a ylace for rvhich it is not suite' 5 .,\ says Professor Alan F. Arnold of the Park Engineering division of the New -York state college of forestry, Syracuse University. \A common mistake is to put the shrubs where there is not enough room; many common - ones attain a breadth of ten to fifteen feet. Also there is much difference, between shrubs as to the density of foliage, the color, and the length of time they tare in leaf. Then there is the question of special decorative effects —flowers, fruit or autumn color. Too much emphasis is apt to be given to flowers; it is often poor policy to sacrifice appearances during many months for a week or so of bloom. Last, though not least, there are the practical considerations of hardiness, sturdiness, rate of growth, soil re- quirements, care and cost. \Let us take an example. We wish shrulbs in the strip between the prop- erty line and drive on a city lot. The plants may be allowed to spread a little but they must be shrubs ordin- arily no more than eight feet across. 'We want enough height, sturdiness and density to give our place some privacy and protection,- and, in view of the conspicuous location, good foliage over a long period. Special decorative effects are not needed here. The growing conditions call for plants that are not particular and can be depended upon to make a strong growth. \Looking over available shrubs, we might consider Acanthopanax pen- taphylluim (not very shapely though), Japanese Barberry (hardly tall enough), Flowering Quince (notmuch of a foliage plant), Ibota Privit (somewhat broad), Rhodotypos ker- ricides (none too dense and easily damaged), Rugosa Rose (not very dependable and needs some care), Spiraea vanhouttei (rather bare at the base), Ehowberry (not very sub- stantial or high), and Weigela (rather coarse and apt to need at- tention). Ibota Privit seems, per- haps, the best choice though, in an actual case, spme particular need might result in the selection of some- thing else.\ 4-H CLUB NEWS.
