"That dng pleases you?" asked Fer

it. And then, in the haughty tone
which was his wont, ie added: "A

Extent of Tobacco industry.
More than $1,500,000,000 a year is
the value of tobacco products manu
factured in the United States. More
than a million and a half acres of land
are devoted to the growing of the
"weed." On the manufacturlng side,
the government estimate of the capItal
invested in 1914 was $303.8-t0,000,
which was a low figure even then and
is greatly exceeded now. T1hae number
of wage earners in manufneture in
that year was 178,872, and their an

ELDERLY MAN GOOD WALKER
Brooklyn Citizen, Fond of Pedestriap.
Ism, Has a Record That Few Are
Likely to Equal.
Garret Brower of this city walked
2,000 miles when he was ninety years
old. le is now ninety-seven years old
and for the past three years he has
given up walking as a regular occu
pation. But for about 12 years before
that he walked persistently, in bad
weather and good, on week days and
holidays. And this at a time when
he had long passed beyond the three
score and ten years supposed to be
man's allotted span of life.
He used to walk with a pedometer
at his belt 9s his only companion.
From his former home on Willough
by avenue, he would walk out to the
Williamsburg bridke and across to
Manhattan. This not appearing long
enough for a grownup man, he often
would walk back to the Brooklyn end
of the bridge and then cross and re
cross the bridge two or three times
before starting home. In his diary he
kept a record of the distances cov
ered on these expeditions. They va
ried from month to month; but seven
years ago, when he had reached the
age of ninety, his walks still averaged
six miles a day. Being now close to
the century mark, he has discontinued

brought to light by John Davidson,
botanist of the University of British
Columbia, at Vancouver, and James
Teit, who has spent most of his life
in the interior of the Canadian prov

of the life and habits of the natives.
The secret is that the Douglas fir

sugar that is extreinely sweet and Is
valued at $0 a pound.
The announcement is tnade by the
Anierican Forestry a.soelation,
through an article written by Franes
Dickle a nd published In the American
Forestry Magazine. The area in which
this sugar is found in abundance Is
between the fiftieth and fifty-first par
allels and between 121 and 122 de
grees of longitude. These areas take

the mouth of Nicola river, the district
near the junction of the Fraser al
Thompson rivers at Lytton ind a
small part of the Oraser valley above

the Nicola and Similwvameen valeys
and the eastern part of the state of
Washington the sugar is also reported
to be found.
