of foresters from tllfe
offorestry, under the direction of Mr.
A. F. Hawcs, has been employed all
summer on the William H. Bartlett
ranch in Colfax County, N. Mex. The
field work has been completed and a
system of administration for the lands
is now in preparation.
The Bartlett tract lies at the south
ern extremity of the Rocky Mountains
in the Varm^o River Valley and in
cludes
210,000
•A
mMm
acres, part of an old
Mexican land grant. The owner of the
tract, who resides in Chicago, uses it
in part as a cattle ranch and'summer
residence.
The former owners of the ranch re
tain the right to cut the timber for a
definite period of years, and it is Mr.
Bartlett's desire that a young forest
of the best possible quality cover the
tract when these cuttings shall have
ceased. Much of the pine land has al
ready been lumbered, though in most
parts a sufficient number of seed tree&
remain to insure reproduction. About
fifty years ago extensive fires swept
over the mountainous parts of the tract
which were then covered with a mix
ture of spruce and fir. These burned
areas have since grown up to a dense
stand of aspen under which, in. most
cases, there is a good reproduction of
the native Conifers.
The bureau will recommend that fire
patrols be established and fire lines be
constructed that those parts of lands
covered with young production be
fenced in so*as to keep uot the cattle
and that considerable tree planting be
done, chiefly of western yellow pine.
The plan will be accompanied by a
map showing the location of forest,
types, proposed fire lines, areas to be1
planted, etc. i v i

ers of the movement, or more properly
speaking the founders of the present
dogma, said the speaker, was opposed
very largely to the Christian church,
teaching the doctrine of no God. The
creed of socialism present^ a very pow
erful indictment of the present social
system. That in the opinion of the
speaker, was its principal strength. The
system is opposed to individualism,
does not recognize that a great deal
of the progress attained in the present
world has been through individual ef
fort rather than by the co-operativc
efforts of the masses. The masses have
followed great leaders, but the leaders
have pointed out the courses pursued.
Individual effort in the opinion of the
speaker was a most important factor
in the progress of the race. Mr. Leon
ard stated that another great objection
to the socialistic programme was the
fact that it consideVed man as a mere
animal and its plan as taught generally
considered one man's material benefit
and did not recognize that he is poss
essed of a soul. The system proposes
that all shall Work for each individual
and each person shall labor for all. The
part of all working for each would ap
peal to everybody, but in the opinion
of the speaker there would be a goodly
portion of the human race opposed to
working for -ajl or even for anyone, as
in the case under the present system.
Summarizing his remarks the pastor
asserted that the place of the church
would be in the future as in the past to
administer to the spiritual part of
man's nature, to attempt to teach men
the highest possible ideal* and to En
deavor to get the leaders and the
masses to live the best possible lives,
lives based upon the teachings of fhe

CHILLY KING'S EMBRACE
Travelers who were on the G. N.,
coming east from Devils Lake yester
day, report a very bad storm between
Rugby and Larimore moderating as
the latter point was approached. The
snow was so blinding that the en
gineers could not see objects a car
length ahead of them and traffic was
generally hampered. At one side track
two engines bumped together, but the
only damage done was the demolishing
of a pilot, as both engines were moving
slowly. Between Rugby and Devils
Lake, the storm was very bad.

PORTRAITS OF CATS.
Tarloai Rmoi) Why Thry Are Very
Difficult to Paint.
In sponkiug of the putting of cats
on canvas a painter of tlirm recently
snftl: "They ure Trithout doubt one of
th? most difficult croatures to paint,
and lamentably few artists make a
succfws of their portraiture. They are
almost Impossible to keep quiet, and
the particular fluffy 'cattiness' of tlio!r
coats is far from easj* to depict In plg
fnonts. The famous cat painters are
few. and tvlien choice or chance dis
covers one he, or more often she, finds
the gift a mine of wealth.
"In David Brooke's well known pic
ture of the darky preacher at dinner
la the Corcoran Art gallery In Wash
ington the cat in the foreground could
be ind need to sit still only by having
lior Veot glned to the floor. But satis
factory results as to cnpre3^ion. In
which a cat's face can be particularly
eloqueut. are not to be secured In this
way. Tlioso who have had reason to
know say that wen the fur of .felines
13 Indicative of sevtrsJ things. In
health and contentment it stands out
fluffll.v from their bodies, while In fear
or displeasure it lies flat and laukly to
the skin.
•'Not lonfy since a picture wns placed
on exhibition of a cat lapping milk,
with its tail held high. Though the
technique was good and the fur really
•furry.'- the value of the whole was
practically nil. because no cat has ever
been known to oat with its tail in the
air. With waving tails they do Indeed
rush toward the food, but with the
first Inp or bite down goe* the caudal
appendage lower and lower, until with
a full Rtom:teh it sweeps the ground.
In the case of young kittens It is often
different, however. They scramble in
to a dish, of mill with their pointed,
ratlik? tails at right angles to their
roily poly bodies and sometimes forget
to take down this sign of animation
and alertness. Any one who knows
cats knows that the tail at every angle
and with every movement is expressive
of some deiinite emotion."

The Maoris of New Zealand always
irOat women v.'ith the greatest defer
ence and respect, so much so that the
Earl of Kanfurly once called thorn
"the tiniest gentlemen on earth." They
vri!l nat permit a woman to do any hard
work If they *an -do--it for her. and
their boys are taught from earliest
youth that rndenes^ and uukiudness
toward women are crimcs only secoud
to lying and cowiirdSee.
A youug English lfidy named Ger
trude Dell traveled, alone among the
Druses of Syria. She wua everywhere
received by tli^m .with the greatest
courtesy and hospitality. Special tents
were assigned to her use. and the
sheiks vied with each other In being
her humble servants. "No well bred
English gentleman could have been
more chivalrous," she said, "and they
were just as courteous to their own
women as they were to me."
The Fijian* go to extremes. They
are so deferential and polite to their
womenfolk that they let the lntt»r
"rule the roost" entirely. A woman's
word ts apt to be laW lit tbe FIJI la
lands.
As a rule, women 'occupy 'a sub
ordinate place In the east, but Kafl
ristan Is an exception. The Kaffirs are
of Aryan origin and to all appearances
are a white race. They claim Alexan
der the Great as their ancestor and
have a lofty code of chivalry. Their
women, .lovely creatures with fair
complexions, blue eyea and flaxen hair,
are treated fnr better thau most wom
en in civilized society.
Constable and nix rittnrt.
Constable, the eminent British paint
er, once sat'on the hanging committee
of the British Royal academy when a
small landscape was brought up for
judgment and pronouueed "awfully
bad" by everybody hut himself. lie
rose and mnde a short and startling
speech. "That picture was painted by
inc. I had u notion that some of you
didn't like my work, and this is a
pretty convincing proof. I am very
much obliged to yoa." When his col
ler.gues recovered from their stupefac
tion the head carpenter was bidden to
bring back the picture. But Constable
would not have tt. "Out it goes!" he
said grimly.

C. E. Wheeler reports: The market
ruled dull, early tendency was weak ow

ously interfered with by Saturday's
storm. Receipts at northwestern points
were only
per cent as large as a year
ago. but the visibly supply increase of
2.362,000
bushels was as large as same
week last year. Car lots at Minneapolis
and Duluth were over 1.000 less while
last week than same -veck last year. The
mill and elevator people in Minneapolis
while bullish for a long pull, talk as
though they wanted the market to break
or 3 cents and we think are short
some wheat. Some mills may be closed
down for effect towards the end of the
month as well as for repairs. Armour
bought wheat in Chicago and continues
to talk very strong. Since the close Priu
