What does a man work for? Im

CAMP IN NATIONAL FORESTS
Cities in West Make lt Possible for1
People to Obtain Summer Outing
at Small Expense.
Uncle Sam reports an increasing use
of the national forests for municipal
camp sites and summer school loca
tions. Permits have already been Is
sued to several cities and educational
institutions and other applications are
expected. Officials say that far more
people use the forests for public play
grounds than for any other purpose,
and that this use promises to be one
of the most Important to which they
can be put.
The city of Fresno, Cal., has been
granted a permit for the use of a 15
acre camp on the shores of Hunting
ton lake, in the Sierra National forest.
It is reported that the city will estab
lish a camp in which outings during
the summer months will be provided at
low cost for 11,000 school children and
In the same forest a California state
normal .school ls now occupying a tract
of land which Is rented from the gov
ernment under a long-term lease. A
numb?1** of buildings have boen erect
ed, all of which, as well as many cot
tages and camps, are supplied with
water from a water system installed
by the forest service.
Los Angeles was the first city in
California to establish a vacation camp
in the national forests. A tract of land
in the Angeles forest has been rented,
and a large camp built, costing about
$8,000. A ten-day trip can be made for
a small cost which is within the reach
of practically everyone. By this means
thousands of residents of the city have
been able to spend their vacations In
It ls also reported that a San Fran
cisco association ls considering the es
tablishment of a summer home for
girls at Lake Tahoe on the Tahoe Na
tional forest. Boy Scout trtfops regu

Use of Manure.
Not all farmers have learned the
great value of manure in increasing
the yield of crops. Those who save
all the manure produced on their
farms know the value of it and feel
that they cannot afford to lose it.
Those who have not been in the
habit of saving manure do not know
While the commercial value of
tue constituents in manure is not
high, there is another and a very
important value, that of providing
organic matter, called humus. A
few loads of manure on thin soil,
low in organic matter will increase
the yield surprisingly. And the
yield is likely to be greater for sev
If every farmer could understand
the possibilities of buildiug up his
soil by raising livestock, saving and
applying manure, it would not be
lone till every farm would have all
the livestock it wou'd maintain, and
the number it couid man.lain would
be gradually increased because of
Here is a thought: Livestock to

larger crops, better profits, more in
