"Did it ever occur to you to con
sider what an enormously valuable
inheritance man has received in the
'forests primeval'? said Professor
Fernow, of the Department of Agri
culture, in conversation with a
Washington Star writer. "Of all the
natural resources received by nature
.for our benefit, they are the most di
rectly useful. In the woods wo find
ready at hand and obtainable for
mere harvesting materials applica
ble to all the needs and means to
satisfy every immediate want.
"Probably you will be surprised
when I tell you that tho annual in
crease of thq forests by natural growth,
representing the interest which
we are at liberty to draw without im
pairing the principal, exceeds in the
United States alone ten times the
value of the gold and silver output of
this country, and is worth more than
three times the product of all our
mineral and coal mines put together.
Jf to the value of our total mining
product be added the value of all the
stone quarries and petroleum re
sources, and this sum be increased
by the estimated value of all the
steamboats, sailing, and canal boats
plying in American waters, it will
still bo less than the value of the an
nual forest product of the nation by
a sum sufficient to purchase at cost of
construction all the canals, buy at
par all stocks of the telegraph com
panies, pay their bonded debts, and
equip all the telephone lines. The
annual product of the woods is worth
three times as much as the wheat
crop. It exceeds the gross income of
all the railway and transportation
companies, and it would more than
wipe out the entire public debt.
"More than 300,000 people are oc
cupied to-day in the direct manufac
ture of forest and sawmill products
alone. Were I to attempt an enu
meration of the uses to which the
product of the woods is put, it would
be necessary for me to mention all
tho phases and employments of hu
man life. Railways annually con
sume 500,000,000 feet of timber. The
same material builds the houses and
yields for two-thirds of the popula
tion the fuel necessary to warm their
dwellings with and to prepare their
food. Upon charcoal the iron indus
try largely depends. Not only In its
natural form does the substance serve
our needs, but our ingenuity has de
vised methods for transforming it in
to all sorts of useful things. Paper is
made from it, and even silk, while
it nas become possible to prepare
from brushwood a feed for cattle as
nutritious as hay. By distillation
are derived from it alcohol and acetic
acid, while the barks yield indiS'
pensable tanning material, resin and
tar for pitching vessels, turpentine,
sassafras, oil, and cork.
"The decayed vegetation of forests
lias furnished to the fields their pres
ent fertility, upon which man de-
pends for food. In tho tree growth
of virgin woods and in the floor of
rotted foliage beneath are stored the
accumulations of centuries. Nature
does not care whether this growth is
useful to the human race or not. It
is left for us to encourage the growth
of such trees as we find valuable,
to the exclusion of others. Thus an
economical use is made of the re
sources at hand and a new concep
tion of the forest arises. The forest
primeval becomes 'woodlands,' while
the new 'forest' includes only culti
"If left without interference by
man, Nature would keep the entire
earth covered with forests, save only
a few localities. The treelessness-of
the great central plains of the United
States has been accounted for by the
deficiency of rainfall, and the belief
is generally held that by reason of
this lack of moisture trees can never
grow there. Nevertheless the con I
elusion docs not of necessity follow.
There is excellent cause for believing
that these pairies were not always
treeless, and that their nakedness
might once more bo covered by the
adoption of proper means to that end.
The barrenness occasioned by prairie
tires and herds of tramping buffalo
may yet be made fruitful. You must
remember that the entire earth is a
potential forest Wherever there is
sufficient depth of any kind of soil
for the roots, if it is not too frigid a
climate and man does not interfere,
arborescent grouth will ultimately
prevail on account of its perennial
character and its power to shade out
lower vegetation. In such localities
as tho interiors of large continents
forest planting must progress by
gradual advances from the borders
of the unproductive territory. Once
let woods be spread over the now
arid plains of the Vet and there
would be rain in plenty there. Put
success in this matter can only be
achieved through co-operation sys
tematically and methodically carried
out, commanding knowledge, means,
and power such as a government,
whether of the nation or of States,
can alone control."
A Cure for Paralysis.
Frank Cornelius, of Purccll, "Ind.
Ter., says: "I induced Mr. Pinson,
whose wife had paralysis in the face,
to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain
Hal m. To their great surprise before
the bottle had all been used she was
a great deal better. Her face had
been drawn to one 6ide ; but the Pain
Halm relieved all pain and soreness,
and the mouth aasumed its natural
shape." It is also a certain cure for
rheumatism, lame back, sprains,
swellings and lameness. f0 cent bot

Why He Gave Up the Trade.
A young man, a spirit merchant,
built a large house in the country,
and was retiring frdm business.
When he first told me of his inten
tion, I remarked to him: "Surely,
the spirit traffic is a paying business
when you are able to retiro from it
so soon.' "io," ne answerca, it 13
not that; I have retired from it
through fear;" and then he went on
to tell me that he was a wholesale
merchant and sold to many retail
dealers. He kept a diary in which
ho entered all the names and ages of
his customers, and when and how
they died : and he said, I watched
with deep regret many of those who
came in this business gradually slip
ping downward. When I called on
some before eleven in the morning,
they were so stupified by drink
that they were scarcely able to con
duct their business. One morning,
on looking through my diary, I was
struck by the number of, names I
had entered there as having died
suddenly through the effect of strong
drink. From that moment I shut
the book and resolved that I would
be done with the demon that was
bringing so many promising young
men suddenly and early to fill a

It will not, perhaps, be remember
ed, says the Paper Maker (London),
that in the great exhibition of 1851 a
specimen of iron paper was exhibited.
Immediately a lively competition
ensued among ironmasters as to the
thinness to which cold iron could
be rolled. One iron maker rolled
sheets the average thickness of which
was the one 1-1800 part of an iDch.
In other words, 1,800 sheets of this
iron, piled one upon the other, would
only measure one inch in thickness.
The wonderful fineness of this work
may be more readily understood
when it is remembered that 1,200
sheets of thinest tissue paper measures
a fraction over an inch, These
wonderful iron sheets were perfectly
smooth and easy to write upon, not
withstanding the fact that they
were porous when held up in a
