Nature's Carious Tree Law.
Let us observe a law common to nil
trees. First, neither the stems nor
boughs of the maple, elm or oak taper
event at the point where they fori;
\Yhen. ver a-Steiu sends form a branch
ar.d a branch sends off a smaller bough,
bud or stem, they remain the same in
diameter, and the original stem will
Increase >rntber than diminish until Its
next branch starts. No bough, branch
or stem ever narrows near its extremity except where It parts with a portion Of Its substance by sending od
��� another branch or stem.
���AU trees nreallkeiin this respect and
'ft all .the burghs, branches, stems, fcuds
*nd blossoms were combined and unit-
���ed without iIobb of -space 'they 'Would
-lorm a ,v...... ..,, _, ���,_,'*��� c1,�� ������rt
���diameter as'theitrunl-'from which they
���spring. This Is one of nature's Imperative laws and never fulls to prove true.
