HITCHCOCK “Wild Life Conservation In Theory and Practice.” Though man has tamed and har nessed nature fer his own advantage In many wayc, he has also brought de structiot* upou nimsclf in other wa>* by disregarding ucr nice adjustment for the conservation of her products. Through hi* love 0! sport he ha* w autonly detlioyea that which means health auci pi asperity for himself. In ills unholy destruction of birds he has foolishly made way with the very safeguard of his crops. Insects and pests have always existed, but had never become such menace* until their enemies, the birds, were largely exterminated. “Wild Life Conservation in Theory and Practice,” by William H. Horna day. director of the New York zoolog ical park, gives most illuminating sidelights on the value of birds and the stupidity of man. This book is a utiles of lectures delivered before the Forest School of Yale University. “Forty years ago,” he says, “the preservation of wild life was regard ed chiefly a* a sentimental cause, of practical interest to sportsmen only. Today, that cause has become intense ly practical to millions of American producers and consumers.” He might have added, to every American who wears cotton and eats potatoes. 1 his book tells exactly what the various birds do for us. and what the United States government is trying to do to stop us from further Injuring them and ourselveß.

If thts Is true. It is rather n sad commentary on new spa per* N.ightn't five acres contain all of the paper that Is really of any use? We wonder! Anyway, the boys don’t care, and tramp on till they meet a girl. Her name is Alice, gol den hair, pink ribbons, etc. Alice lends a sort of romance to the va rious adventures which follow, though she is anything but a sentimental voung person. The boys climb Mt. Washington and encounter a storm and lose their trail, which means more adventures. Altogether they walk 125 miles in 10 days, and have carried out the “platform” of the Scouts by being "prepared” to handle themselves In all emergencies, “help other folks, and keep well and hardy in the open.
