Co Victoria Cross
You nilfiht draw your boy to your Unco anil tell him
the story of the Victoria Cross, for llic Fi-mi-centcnnial
of the founding of this decoration, which nieniia more
than any other decoration the world hits known, litis just
passed. You mlht tell him that the cross haR no in
trinsic value. It Is worth in money about four cents.
Ilut it represents the highest type of loyalty, the per
sonal bravery that forgets self absolutely and that pays
no heed to-danger in the effort to save. Five hundred
and twenty-eight crosses have been awerded In the past
fifty years. They have not been lightly bestowed. Every
man who wears one was worthy and had been tried as by
fire. It would require volumes to relate the tales of
heroism and daring covered by those 5-N bits of metal.
Why, one man won his cross, during the Indian mu
tiny, by fighting with his bare fists after his sword had
leen broken, and he fought so fiercely and well that ho
delayed the enemy until English reinforcements came up
and saved the day. 'Hobs," Ixird Roberts, the little sol
dier who knew no fear, is entitled to wear two Victoria
crosses. He won his own over and over ngaln when he
was a lieutenant, und his son, who received his death
wound while trying to save the guns at Colenso, was nlso
Riven a cross; and the good Queen Victoria, in her ap
preciation of this heroism that follows blood from father
to eon, ordered that Ixird Roberts should wear his own
cross on his left breast and his son's on his right breast.
Tell your boy about these things. They are not
stories of war alone. They are not arguments for the
shedding of blood, but tales of manhood, the highest
type :the kind that can look death In the eyes and say:
"I'll do my full duty as a man." Tell the lad that there
are crosses to be worn In every day living. In the strug
gles which must be faced by every one, and that nevei
was there need of a higher type of men than now. A
queen may never pin a medal to your lad's breast, but
the world admires strength, courage, loyalty, whether
they are shown on field pt battle or in the humblest walk
of life. It Is always worth while to try Is only to satisfy
the voice Inside. Tell your boy about that, also.
The would-be sensation about the cruel treatment ot
A patient at the New Mexico Insane asylum, has proven
Hself to be false and malicious, as every Intelligent per
son could well believe that it would, and as every one
having any familiarity with the management of the asy
lum at Las Vegas very well knew that it must. This
writer from the very opening of the asylum up to two
years ago, was a frequent visitor to the institution, din
ing there often, Intimately acquainted with the members
of the management, and well posted In the plans, pur
poses and methods adopted and pursued; and no crazy
or disgruntled employe, smarting under discharge, could
make him for a moment believe that cruelty In the in
stitution could be possible, with Dr. W. R. Tipton as
medical director and George W. Ward as steward.

leaguers of the Highland Park Methodist church. The
church has a splendid property consisting of about three
lots, a pretty little frame church, and a commodious two
story parsonage. At present the largest part of the prop
erty is In lawn, where a new church will be built as soon
as the conditions Justify it. The parsonage was finished
only about a year ago. und it has not been possible tip to
this time to do much In the way of beautifying the
grounds. A short time ago the Junior Leaguers took up

Farmington Hustler: Judge Goddard of the Colorado
supreme court, while drunk at a banquet, the other
evening, took the occasion to severely condemn an at
torney who was also preser.t, who had been retained by
the officers of the .Western Federation of Miners. Judge
Goddard expressed his contempt for an attorney who
would accept fees from such a source. There is a lot of
us people with the old-fashioned idea that an attorney
who accepts fees from any client and performs service
in return for it is immeasurably superior from un ethical
standpoint to a judge who accepts a salary from the tax
payers of a state and then renders his decisions accord
ing to the dictates of a few corporations.

of the expedition, In which he is engaging. The only
thing the wise man knows is this the forces that are

he goes on bravely, by faith instead of sight. Faith does

A lcmatllatble Sale
of Reserve Timber
Press Bulletin No. 111. Forest Service.
From several aspects a striking Interest attaches to
the recent sale by the government ot about 50,0iii,oni)
feet of timber on the Montana division of the Yellow
stone horest Reserve to a contracting company which
will convert most of the timber into railroad ties.
Tills Is one of the largest sales ever made of gov-
jernment timber; the price is advantageous; and n large
percentage of the cut will be of a Frneies which a few
years ago was without market value, namely, lodgepole
plne. Further, it may be said with assurance that had
not the preservative treatment of ties been shown to be
both practical and economical, such a sale could not now
have been made for 60 per cent of the cut, or approxi
mately l.ooo.noo ties, Is to be treated with preservatives
by a process which experiment and trial have placed on
a sound business basis.
The purchasers of the timber have contracted to sup
ply the Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy and Northern Pa
cific railway companies with ties for a period covering
three years. The timber for which they applied to the
government consists of lodgepole pine, red fir, and
spruce. A large proportion of the stand Is lodgepole pine,
which grows very densely. Consequently after all the
specified timber has been i amoved, a plentiful stand of
young trees will be left, which In a few years will again
form a forest of merchantable dimensions.
The government will receive a stunipage price ot
$2.50 per thousand feet for the red fir and $2.00 per
thousand feet for the spruce and pine.
The story of the entrance of lodgepole pine into the
timlier market Is an Interesting chapter In the history
of the use of forest products. Five years ago this tree
was classed among the nearly worthless, inferior timbers
growing In the northwestern states. It had never come
Into extensive us-?. Its liability to attack by fungus and
lightlies-, nd the large percentage of sapwood in its
struct!!.' were disadvantages which seemed to handicap
It permanently. Yet tho possibility and the need of find
ing substitutes for scarcer woods had already led to the
closer study of a number of unexploltej species, and de
vices were being sought by which artificial treatment
might be made to take the place of natural adaptability
to a specific service.
Among these devices were improvements in season
ing methods and the use of preservatives, it was found
that preservative treatment; which greatly prolonged the
life of certain timbers, depends largely for Us success
upon the penetrability of the wood, which permits the
preservative to enter the wood substance easily. The
loblolly pine was seen to be exceedingly well adapted
for preservative treatment, and also lodgepole pine, In
which softness is combined with a high degree of per
meability. In 1002 the seasoning and preserving ot
lodgepole pine was thoroughly taken up by the Forest
Service, in co-operation with the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railroad ami with the present purchasers of re
serve timber in Montana. The results established Its
sei vicenbility and thus opened a new field for the sup
ply of ties, upon which the railroads are drawing so

giving evrybody a severe shaking up.
n only took: a second for me to con-
elude we had been wrecked. The
front end of the car f was on hau
reacned an angle which proved this
very conclusively. I got out of the
car with little difficulty. The engine
was still on the track. Bv a aueer
freak of luck it did not leave the
rails. Tho tender did, however, and
uiy a wreck nesuie the track. The
express car lay in the ditch, in a po
sition which indicated that It might
topple over at any minute. The smo
ker was also in the ditch, laying flat
on its side. The front end of Uie first
chair car left the rails and rest
ed in the ditch, but the remainder of
the train kept to the rails. The only
persons Injured were those In the
smoker and the express messenger.
The messenger w as hurled against the
side of his car as It toppled into the
ditch und was seriously hurt. In the
smoker were several natives. Tbev,
too, were hurled about as the car fell
inio the ditch. All were painfully
hurt, especial'- two, v.ho it Is tuought

wreck Is attributed to the tender ol
