Herds Total 200,000.
The 80 scrubby, half-starved rein
/ deer, imported into Alaska from Sibe
ria in 191i2 by the government as an
experilnent in food supply for the na
tives, have grown to nearly 21X),000
head at present, valued at approxi
mately $30 each. It is expected that
within 15 years the herd will number
letween ten and twenty-five millions,
the grazing capacity of Alaska.
Already the industry Is being con
sidered as serious competition for the
big meat packers of the United States.
Last year only 1,7() carcasses were
shipped; 11,000 will be shipped in
1920, it is estimated.
Five colur-torage plants, with a ca
pacity of 1.000 to 5,000 carcasses each,

Linked With History.
The local subtreasury, for genera- c
tions an integral part of the financial r
history of the government, occuplies a I
cotlmmanding position in the heart of
the financial district and is on the
site of the seat of the federal congress
,where George Washington took the
oath of office as first President of the
Its Grecian facade and broad ap
proach have been the scenes of some
of the most important and interesting
events in the annals of this city and
country. From its steps, standing in
the shadow of the bronze statue of the
"Father of ills Country." have spoken
some of the most distinguished states
men of this and foreign lands.
Many political demonstrations of
deep significance Jave taken place
there, including those held during the
Blaine and Cleveland campaigns, and
I Roosevelt made his fitrst open-air
speech from its steps when he ran for
governor of New York.
During the World war the sub
treasury was the center of numerous
Liberty bond rallies and other similar
gatherings. Only recently its steps
were thronged while speakers repre
senting various patriotic organizations
voiced their protest against the mys
terious explosion of September 16,
which occurred within fifty feet of
the Washington statue and caused
serious damage to the new assay
office building next door.
Has Held BIllions.
In Its many years of service the
subtreasury has been the repository
of well-nigh countless billions of dol- I
lars in gold and silver and paper
money, and its chiefs have included
some of the most notable fiures among
the financiers of the city.
Martin Vogel, now assistant treas
urer, will return to the practice of law
as soon as he is relieved of his duties.
This will not be possible, however,
until an official count has been taken
of the vast sums of money still re
posing in the underground vaults of
the building. -

Removing Large Limbs. 1.1
A large limnb rarely shlliul be re- thi
tloved hby ia single saw cut from the eca
upper side, as this ustallly strips the of
bark and woodl ais it falls. A iprelll- ('
inary cut should le ma:lde from the uin- :
der side, beyond tile point for the be
r final cut; and n seconld tilt on the ulp
per side an Inch or llmore beyond the po
first one. Then cut the stub close to tin
the trunk. A coat of goad shellac frl
r should he allied over the entire area of
s of the bark, outer saplwood, and the or
e'lnllllbllnl iltuneiiately. tel
C(reosote should he applied to thet
rest of the exposed wood not already til
covered by the shellac as a protec- let
Sltion, and the entire shellacked and to
d creosoted surface should he finally wa- he
terproofed with thick coal tar or its- ou
phalt. Grafting wax, particularly the no
thick liquid alcoholic kind, is excel- ed
lent for waterprooiling smnll surfaces.
e Another good methodl of treatini it" ce
scuars is to char the surface with a alI
- I gasoline or alcohol blast torch and th
ýr then quickly cover the hot surface m
with heavy tar, pitch, or hot asphalt. as
ig The treated surfaces should he or
watched from year to year and recoat
ed as necessary to preserve the wa- fil
" terproofing. t1)
In removing small branches and cr
r' twigs the cut should he made as close pl
Q to the supporting branch as possible, ct
- so as to leve no projecting stub. The w
pruning wound must be sterilized and u
water-proofed. For very small wounds m
shellac is handy. of
When a wound has been allowed to ci
h remain untreated for a year or more, to
decay-producing organisms are almost
i" certain to have started an area of de- vi
e cay and insect activity behind the ex- of
posed surface. Such regions gen- pi
erally require excavation of decayed pi
and diseased wood and sterilizing and at
waterproofing of the cut surfaces. p
