Ume the United States Government,

gathered by the Chamber of Commerce of

100,000 evergreen trees were used yearly
in tho State cf Colorado for the yuletlde

of the tree cut for use all over the world

The effect of the annual removal of 100,

acres, Is of vast Importance to the water
supply It Is more than probable that the
