a chance to admire ita beauty. Other
persons will tell you that the preda
tory Intereste are bent on getting rich
quirk by using up everything that na
ture haa provided for man, and allow
ing posterity to go hnng. There la a
middle ground somewhere, but the
thing Is to find It.
Once on a time, not a very long
ago, two men, one of whom reached
the eminence of second officer of gov
ernment and the other the eminence
of third officer of government, de
clared In public sxwh that there waa
necessity of trying to .ave any
thing that posterity could pull down
out of the air everything that waa
needed for Ita comfort, Ita aafety and
Ita progress. That theaa two men
made thla atntement la a literal truth.
One of them did not hear the laat of
It until he died, and tha other at an
advanced age la atlll hearing about It.
Trying ta Aava tha Foraeta.
Juat now there la a movement In
Washington to aecure the transfer of
the bureau of forestry from the Depart
ment of Agriculture to the Department
of the Interior. The proponente of
the plan aay that If the change ta
made the foreata will be saved, and
the opponent aay that If the change
la made tha foreata will disappear.
A country without a tree la a pretty
poor country. The hope of people who
ran see not only utility but beauty In
the branchee of a drooping elm, la that
whether the forestry bureau la left
where It la or moved elsewhere, elms
will continue to grow, and with them
oeka. pine, -sawood, ash, and all the
other forest growth.
Home atatementa have been made re
cently by Secretary Wallace of the
Department of Agriculture, and they
are somewhat startling. They prob
ably will he met by counter atate
menta. Then tha counter atatementa
must be read, digested, and compared
with the original atatementa for the
purpoee of arriving at anmethlng like
tba truth. In an article by O. Gould

Tariff Debate Dragging,
The tariff bill U dragging Ita way

Two Kinds'of Lawyers,
By ROGER SHERMAN,
The profession of law can regain much that it haa loat in the eonfi
' donee of tha public if lawyers will establish business nit-tluxla and business
systems and deal with questions lubmitted to tlicin less a professors of law
- There are today two kinds of lawyers, those of the old school and
thoae of the new. . . . The lawyer of the old tyjie occupies a dingy,
dark, dusty room in an unattractive builditig. The client and the book
gent walk from the hall directly into his room.
With the lawyer of the new school, it is different . . . Everything
is clean; no dust it visible; no papers are exposed to view. The lawyer
the client or prospective clieut came to see aits before a flat-topjxHl dcek
that has no books on it and no papers, except thoae on which he is working
at the time. An office boy brings in the pa(ers that may be required and
restores them to their file in the vault when they are no longer needed.
There ia no delay in finding the papers.
In due course, within 30 or 60 daya, the client receives a bill showing
in geueral terms the services rendered. It indicatea on its faoe that in
making the charge the sender then had in mind juat what aervicee had
been rendered, the time required, the importance of the transaction and
the result accomplished. The fact that the bill waa sent promptly and that
the charge ia fairly high doee not in the leawt offend the client, because
from hia entrance into the bailding to the receipt of the bill he wu im
pressed witl the fact that the lawyer knew two things, hia client's business
and hia own. The client "got service" the thiog he wanted above every,
thing else and ia willing to pay the prion.
