"Stop Throwing Forests' Into the Waste Baskets!"
orOP throwing the forests of tho country Into your waste basket," Is the
U message sent to the business houses of the country by the American
Forestry association, which Is enlisting the nld of the schools, business houses,
and women's organizations In a pa-
per conservation campaign.
Charles Lathrop Pack, president
of tho association, has given out llg
uros which show the tremendous In
crease In pulp wood consumption. In
congress the subject has come up for
frequent discussion.
Here are the figures submitted by
Mr. Pack, who calls for a nntlonal
forest policy and for better lire
protection for the forests, in cords con

no fault of tljolr own. However, a
series of decisions by the officials of the-treasury department have placed
such restrictions on the law as to preclude favorable consideration of n
majority of the claims which have been filed. These decisions are brlelly
summarized ns follows:
The auditor has disallowed all claims for property lost by fire unjess
claimants can certify that the loss occurred while tho claimant wns engaged
lu saving government property.
The comptroller has ruled that "money" Is not nn article of property.
The comptroller has recently decided that property lost In Franco can
not be considered as having been lost "in the field during campaign," unless
the claimant wis actually in the battle line. This decision will affect prac
tically all losses of personal bnggtige In tho field other than that In course
of transportation.
Senator Wndsworth said the committee on military affairs "boiled with
Indlgnntlon," and Its purpose was to give tho soldier a "square deal."
Great War Makes Many Millionaires in America
AMEKICA'S millionaires Increased by 1,470 In tho first year of the wnr In
Europe. During the second year the Increase was twice as great, for In
1U10 there were 'J,80!t more millionaires than In 1010. And In 1018, while
tho net growth was only .11. the true
situntlon rests In the old saying, "Illm

that year were in Increased Incomes
of those Included in the totals of years
gone by.
Distribution of these new million
aires throughout tho country shows
them thickest where war activities
were greatest, with New York state
alono having 2,888. Nevada was the
only state that didn't claim a million
aire resident In 1017, but her million
aires live elsewhere, that's- all.
Of American millionaires, capitalists as a group made up 3,383 of tho
total; manufacturers who made war material 020. and tho producers of
food, 120. Corporation officials numbered 710 millionaires.
The largest Income In 1017 was $34,030,001. Tho mnn claimed to ho

there were 227 classed as "single women."
From these lutest avallablo figures It Is shown that Individuals through
the Income tax returns contributed In 1018 on their 1017 Incomes a great total
of $301,480,177, while corporations In the same period yielded Undo Sam's

Proper Drainage Is Chief Essential In
Maintenance Road Drag
Especially Useful,
The cardinal essential In spring
maintenance of earth ronds, especially
those on heavy soils. Is good (Irnlttnge.
So long as the wnter can bo kept
from penetrating deeply Into these
roads they will remain at least fairly
passable. To accomplish this on aver
age earth roads, however, Is far from
ensy. During the early part of this
season of the year rains are often of
long duration and tend to saturate the
soil. Water from melting snows Is
perhaps even more penetrating than
long-continued rains, whllo alternate
freezing and thawing of the wet sur
face tends to Increase the porosity of
tho soil and permit oven more ready
access of water Into tho foundation.
The chief attention of the road mnn
must therefore be directed toward
getting and keeping the water away
from the rond. So long ns tho founda
tion can be kept dry, even a heavy
freeze followed by a rapid thaw will
do little or no real damage to. the roatl
surface. A dry soil does not heave.
The foundation will thcreforo still bo
solid, and the road will be able to
sustain the traffic without serious rut
ting. On the other hand n saturated
soil expands greatly on freezing, and
when It thnws out has not only lost
practically all power of sustaining tho
weight of trnfile, hut also Is In nn Ideal
condition for taking up or absorbing
still more water, and thus forming
still more mud.
During the early part of the season,
ns long as tho weather Is very rainy
or there Is melting snow on the ground
It will pay to have tho road man go
over the road dally to see that the
drains and side ditches do not hecotno
clogged and to note tho need of any
necessary repairs. A few minutes'
work with a shovel may prevent a so
rlous washout or dnmnges. which, If
not promptly checked, might make tho
road practically Impassable.
The rond drag or somo other slmllnr
device finds its greatest usefulness
during this season. It may ho used
to good advantage to clear tho road
