WHAT FORESTRY HAS DONE; of
AN INTERESTING REVIEW.
Many people in this country think
that, forestry had never been tried c*'
until the government began to practice
it upon the. national forests. Yet 01
forestry is practiced by every civdliz- Vf
ed country in the world except China
and Turkey. It gets results which
can be got in no other way, and So
which are necessary to the general

the strongest proof oT what it can '
accomplish here. The remarkable (>t
