Of late years the area of sugar cultt

ing on this land uas been cut down
The second cause has been tho ruin
ous policy ot our local government in
opening up such large area's of forent

withstanding the reservation clnuset
In the homesteaders' lease or sale,
gieat destruction has gone on. and to

Should Plant Trees.
To sum up. the energetic extending

compelled to plant at least flvo trees
