The Vermont Woods Stripped to Sup
ply the Great Demanud.
Montpelier Dispatch to New York
The annual devastation of the for
ests of Vermont to provide Christmas
trees upon which Santa Claus may
hang his gifts in city homes is now
in progress and the yearly protest is
being raised by those who .see danger
to the State in the indiscriminate
It is estimated that the harvest this
year will be even greater than last
when 1,500,000, of young spruces,
balsams, and hemlock were taken
from-the woods. These trees running
in height from two feet to fjfteen, are
eut by mountain farmners and their
children and are sold for 2 eents
apiece to buyers from New York, Bos-.
ton, Albany and other eit'es.
The trees are hauled to the nearest
road where the buyers inspect them
and discard about- 60 per cent. This
waste in the past ten years has
amounted to nearly 5,000,000 , trees.
Had these been allowed to grow ex
perts employed by the State estimate
tat their value would have reached
into the millions. Despite these aston
Ming fignres which were furnished
to farmner a year ago, the entting
ges on, and probably will1 continue
util it is. no itmger profitable to
gther the trees for miarket.
One of the dangers whieh the state
forestry commission fearrs is. a cur
tamen of the water supply. When
timber is cut from the mountains,
small trees spring up to take their
place and thus prevent the springs
and brook "'feeders" from drying
during the surnmer months. When
this second growth, as the semima
ture ,seedlings are called, is stripped
from the soil, the sun dries out the
ground and the valleys, as well as
th- higher reaches are affected.
AX, every biennial session of the
Legislature in the past decade an ef
fort has been made to regulate the
destruction of small coniferous trees,
but without avail, as the farmers who
ogather them are in the majority. It
has been equally useless to point. out
the fact that they are cutting off their
own noses. If the trees were allowed
to mature the crop would be of great
value, as paper maker are keen to ob
tian pulp wood on this side of the
Canadian line. The farmers would
rather receive a pittance now than
wait twenty years for bigger returns.
They point out that the trees are their
own and that they will cut them when
When the crop is harvested it is
drawn to the nearest railroad station,
where the trees are loaded upon cars
and transported to the wholesale deal
ers in cities. When they finally get
to the retailers and are put on the
market the public pays an average of
$1 a tree. There are hundred of these
cars now on the sidings all over Ver
mont, waiting to be moved.
LETTER THAT NEVER CAME.
"To Hell With the Law, . Senate
Chamber, Washington, D. C."
Washington Cor. State.
"To Hell With the Law,
Washington, D. C."
This is the way an old Uniontsoldier
addressed a letter at Lafayette, Ind.,
a few days ago and posted it in the
mail box, intending that it should be
delivered to Senator Benjamin R.
Tillman. The old soldier's name is
James F. Campbell of the old sol
diers' home. He was incensed at the
speech Senator Tillman made at Chi
ago. He wrote a scorching letter to
South Carolina's -rip-roaring senator
and calculated that he would blunt
some of the prongs on the pitchf.ork.
But the letter so far has not been
delivered'and will not. be.
Soon after Campbell posted his let
ter -he told' some of the authorities
about it and they made him take i.m
mediate steps to prevent its delivery.
The postal officials here have beemi
looking for it everywhere, but they
have not found it. Inquiry was made
at the dead letter office, but it has
not turned up there. It is thought
by some to be in the hands of' the su
perintendent of mails, but others are
of the opinion that some clerk espied
the unusuals address and the letter
never left the State of Indiana.
