The forests are natural reser
voirs. By restraining the streams
in flood and replenishing them
in drought they make possible
the use of waters otherwise
wasted. They prevent the soil
f.iom washing, oud so protect
the storage reservoirs from fill
ing up with silt. Forest conser
vation is therefore an essential
condition of water conservation.
The forests alone cannot, how
ever, fully regulate and conserve
the waters of the arid region.
Great storage works are neces-
sary to equalize uiw uu w
streams and to save the Hood
waters. Their construction ims
been conclusively shown to be
an undertaking too vast for pri-
vato pffort. Nor can it be best
accomplished by the individual
states acting alone. Far-reaching
inter-state problems are in
volved; and the resources of sin
gle states would often be made

quate. It is properly a national
function, at least in some of its
features. It is as right for the
national government to make the
streams and rivers of the arid
regions useful by engineering
for water storage as to
make useful the rivers and bar
bors of the humid region by en
gineering works of another kind.
The storing of the floods m res
ervoirs at the head waters of our

our present policy of river con

built on the lower reaches of the
Thft o-overnment should con
struct and maintain these reser
voirs as it does other public
works. Where their purpose is
to regulate the flow of streams,
the water should be turned free
ly into the channels in the. dry
season to take the same course
under the same laws as the natu
ral flow. Extract from the Pres

' ' The Schley court of inquiry
has reached a verdict condemn
ing the admiral on eleven differ
ent counts. The majority opin

Schley should have done this
-and he shouldn't have done that;
that lie "caused the Texas to
back;" that "he did injustice to
Hodgeson," and a lot more irrel

ticeable that they don't accuse
him of doing injustice to the
Spanish fleet at Santiago.
How a Woman Was Initiated
A woman of Bay City, Michi

and then-applied.; for member
ship in the Knights of Pythias
and was initiated. During the
work of the third degree her sex
was discovered. It seems that
in the third degree they have an
India rubber rat and a celluloid
snake, which run by clock-work
inside, and which are very natu
rrA indeed. Thev let them run
at the candidates to see if they
will flinch. When the snake ran
out at the girl she kept her
nerve all right; but when the
rat tried to run up her trousers
leg she grabbed her imaginary
skirts in both hands and jumped
up on the refrigerator standing
near (which is used in the work
of the fourth degree), and
screamed bloody murder. The
girl is a member of the order
however, and there is no Help
for it. This affair may open the
eyes of members of secret socie
ties and cause them to investi
gate. One lodge here, we under
stand, takes precautions against
the admission of women by care

plicants. If the feet are eold

When the United States sent
armies to Cuba and Porto Rico
it clinched for all time the un
written law of the Monroe doc
trine. If there is any nation of
the old world which does not
acknowledge our supremacy in
the new, it is not likely to so
state unless it is prepared to fol
low it up with a declaration of
European ambitions may chafe
at our reiteration of this doc
trine from to time, but they will
never be able to combine to over
throw it. England once wanted
us to ask the nations of Europe
to guarantee the neutrality of
the Nicaraugua canal. This we
very promptly refused to do, and
the political security of the West
ern Hemisphere is just as safe in
our keeping as the Nicaragua
canal will be.
Not so very long ago Chas.
Emory Smith, postmaster gen
eral, put the matter very strong
