TH1; DIARY Oi: OUR OWN SAMUEL PEPYS
AUgust l_Early up, having slept the best 1 have
since I have been here, which I attribute to the fact that
last night I plaved in a game of poker, the limit being
:,c, and the usual wager 2c; and there is nought that
wearieth me so much as gambling for such petty stakes.
For, sinful though it may be, I can take no pleasure in
gaming for a stake unless it be for something greater
than I can afford. Allowed C. Merz to wear my green
cravat this day, and it became him greatly, and 1 was
almost tempted to give it him, and would have let him
have it for $2, but he was loath to give me that, so
we made no barter. To my omce, and did my stint.

luncheon, and I had some rice and milk, such as I had
seen General Goethals order yesterday, but when the
reckoning came, I found it cost 55c, which I deem a high
price To the Senate. and heard much talk about pro

and I won $8 from him, he wagering on the Detroits and
wailing and complaining over his luck. albeit the game
went thirteen innings. With Will Bird and D. Lawrence

hearts, which I deem the parsnip of card-games, albeit
I am not without adroitness at it.

thing here as a cold bath. The water that cometh from
the "Cold" faucet is tepid, at best. To the Bureau of

There is no loud talk in the restaurants here. At

I find it impossible to glean any real political gossip
without eavesdropping. At the next table to me last

People of West, and Even East, Are Resting and
Relaxing in Their Own Estates?Vast Acreages

By THEODORE M. KNAPPEN
LVKE TAH.OE, Cal., Aug. 2. Acrosi the gray-green Mevada
deserts and up from the lat lands oi California come queer
Upon examination they provc to be automobiles laden with
tents, blankets, sleeping bags, camp equipment, mother, father
and the children. These are no gypsies, no homeless tvanderers.
They are landed proprietors retlring te their nionntain estates
for a season oi rest, change and recupcration. They aro Mr. and
Mrs. Average Citizen going up into the Sierra National Forests
their forests. Not only are they en routc tn use and camp ..n
their own lands, but they even emplov SOlicitOUS overseers and
forestera who take the greatest trouble to persuade their masters
to spend a time on their own domains.
Think of it! These people?and you, too, Mr. X'ev. Yorker?
OWn 160,000.000 acres of national U irests, chiefly in the Rocky and
Sit-rra Xevada m<c ntains, to say nothing of a few millions ot"
acres of national parks. And your employes, the foresters and
superintendents, have the sense. so rare in public servants and
bureaucrats. to recoprnize that they are only your hired men.
They like you. they want you around to tak- an interest in their
work and give them a w..rd of cheer and appreciation for their
work. They want you to come up into the high places into the
virgin forests, and use the traiU and camps they have provided
for you at ycur expense.
They want you so much that all through this Western land
they put up placards with maps showing the roads and trails
and the locations of the dilTerent forest reserves, and they print
theteon an urgent invitation to "spend your vacation on your own
property." Just refled on that: Your own property.
That is a good way to visualize the object oi the untversal
war. Democracy fightfl for the nation for the people?not for
the people for the nation. The invitation from y.nr employes
to make use of your property lays itresi on use rather than non
USe. You are urgVd to do thirigs for your own pleasure and hene
fit?not tncrely pennitted. Your attcntion is called to certain
nccessary rules and regulationa, to he surc, but they are put for?
ward a> your own otdmances for the proper COnservatlon and
administration of your own property.
And so the landlordl come to their forest. lake and mountain
estates, come as lords and ladies to tish and camp and elimb and
tramp or, perhapa, even to permanent summer homei erected on
.sites which their government leases to them for a nominal sum
for a period of thirty years. When the. farm work is done for the
leason or the city man's vacation arrives, father roumis up fussy
mother and the excited kids, straps and ties all kinds of outing
equipment under, around, hehind and above the faithful family
.into, and away they go to the wild-, their wilds.
Thousands of SUtOS make the trip from the Middle Wesl and
even from the East, but Eastern people come chiefly by scorea of
tiiousands on the twelve-coach excursion trains, running sonie
times in live sections, and they till the mountain hotels tO the limit
and crowd the p >ad< with their excursion bttttfl and touring cars.
The war has made only this ddierencc in the touri>t and

Fresh Air Fund
With the week ending to-day tha
Tribune Fresh Air Fund comes to th.'
end of the first half of its season. ln
the five week* beginninp June 29 a few
mcre than 5,100 children and mothers
have tastod the bcneiits of the country
through the assistanee of the fund.
Possibly the be<t indication of what
the wqrk of the Kreah Air Fund has
meant to the children of the tenement<
is the fact that all during the present
week during the days when people
were dying in BOOrOfl because of the
heat here in the city the fund had
continually more than 2,000 boys and
girls out in the country, away from the
terrors of thc.r home?.
New Situation Confronts the Work
Nearly four-rifths of the children
to whom the fund has given vacations
up to the present time this summer
have passed those vacations at the
faad'fl Fresh Air hemcs. The other
tifth have been entt rtaine.l by private
families in th* country. These propor
t.ons show that a BOW situation eon
fronta the work th: * year.
In average years the rolflthr* propor?
tion of children received for vacations
in Fresh Air homes Bad private fam?
ilies is, to adopt the phrase of the day,
"tifty-tif'.y." This summer two in
tliionces are cutti'ig into the work of
the fund among the people of the coun?
try. The tirst of these is the wide
spread artivity in connection with the
Red Cross; the second the fear of in

Heavier Kxoense on Fund
ln order to get the necessury work
doiie this summer, in view of this pe
euliar situation, the fund has had to
rt-ort to the expedient of giving the
treater number of its proteires vacations
in th* Frash Air homes. The vacations
thus provided have been and are good
vacations. but etiviiiK them la this way
puts a much greater expense upon the
