Mr. Harry who attended the meet ing at his own expense to secure In formation regard'ng tho results ob tained by the Inquiry, states that the lirst great obstacle confronting tho friends of the plan, is that except all tho state adopt tho system at the same time, it will work a hardship on manufacturers in tho states which do adopt it. because nf tho increased cost of production In those states over cost on states which have not adopted it.

"Suppose tho seasons of tho year should go astray or the earth want Id, what good would all our ability to make nionov do us? We could not t it," said tho speaker, "we should starve to death In tho midst of all our gold." Though our hands became so callous from labor that wo could not close them that our pocketa might be filled with coin, what good would that us if there were no harvest. Then let us thank Cod."

Laurluin Is much Interested In tho hockey team that will represent Calu met this winter In the copper country amateur hockey league. The team will receive tho undivided support of the Laurluin followers of tho game, and as tho village supplies practically ono-half of the local attendance, this will be n big factor In the team's success. It Is generally hoped that Manager Nick V. Kaiser will got a strong seven together. Manager Kaiser expected to call a meeting for some evening this week of .prospective players, but owing to vari ous reasons was unable to do so. Next week, however, he will bo In a position to hold a mooting, lie has already se cured tho signatures of some players, ii nd others have signified their inten tion of turning out for practice. Tho goal position will bo one of tho hardest to fill this year, as (Jray will play with Mohawk. "Dots'' Hermann was available last season, but this year ho Is a student at Ann Arbor and would only bo available during the hol iday season. Marcotte Is available for point nnd likely will be placed there. There is some talk of playing Jack Hermann, of I,nke Idnden. at toverpoint now that Malum has Joined tho Mohawk team. Osborne, Peters, Reynolds, Jake Kaiser, Cameron, nnd others are un derstood to be candidates for forward positions, and nil of these men are tried nnd capable players. It will take a strong right wing man to bent Jake Kaiser, while Osborn is a clever left winger. Derowin is also mentioned for the forward line but it is not known ns yet whether ho will got out for practice. Tho prospects for Calumt t having an excellent hockey seven look very bright. All of the other teams In the league, especially Mohawk, are busily engaged In signing players. It looks as If the class of hockey to he played this win ter will ho fully the equal.

A most striking example of tho transforming effect of forests, not only on tho appearance, but on the produc tivity of a country, Is afforded by the department of the Lnndcs In France. At tho close of tho eighteenth century ubout two million five hundred thous and acres In that region were "little more than shifting sand dunes nnd disease-breeding marshes." At pres ent the same lands are nmong the richest, most productive nnd bo"iitlful in Franco, and the change has been brought about by Intelligent cultivation of pine forests. Kven the character of the climate of tho region has bom am eliorated, and It has become mild and balmy.
