It .is manifest, therefore, that as our army and. navy

USING UP REDWOOD FORESTS
Why It Is Necessary to Call a Halt
Before the Supply Has En
tirely Given Out.
Constantiy increasing production of
redwood lumber in Humboldt county.
means that in less than a cegtury the
only commercial redwood forest in the
world will be stripped bare, accord
Ing to compilations made by George A.
Kellogg. secretary of the Humboldt
chauuber of commerce. In 18t)5 It was
estimated that the standing redwood
timber in the country would be sufti
elent for 200 years, but since that time
the capacity of the mills has been more
tihani doubled with the prospects for a
continuous increase in the future.
Out of 538 acres of redwood timber
standing untouched before lumbering
operations were hegun in the county,
9:3.000 acres have been cut over.' This
cut represents some of the best tim
her of' the country, for the bottom lands
along the rivers where the best timber
stands have been harvested first.
itelwood lumber thus far produced
from the forests of the country has
relpresented a value of $100,317,237 and
has totaled 9,300,805,520 board feet.
DIPLOMAT OF HIGHEST RANK
Why .It Is Advisable That Country

Ambassador is the highest diplo

to the usual privileges accorded repre

have the special one of personal audi

which they are accredited.
In the days immediately preceding

Why One Foot Is Faster.
Almost everyone walks faster with
one foot than with the other, accord

subhje'ct. Tn a majority of cases It is
the rIght foot that outdoes the left,
but somec left-handed persons also
