Conmunication from Hon. B. 8. Eodcy 'oa this Important - Subject, The following communication fr"m Hon. li. S. Kodey, New Mexico's wide awake delegate to ongress, explains itself: . Washington, D. C, ) Jan. 28, 1902. j Eu:tok Ciukftain: The enclosed is a copj of a let ter I have just received from the Commissioner of the General Land Office, and by it you can sec, as we all suspected hereto fore, that the policy of this gov ernment is to increase rather than diminish forest reserves. You can sec by it that the Gila Forest Reserve will not be cut down :is the department has at present determined. I presume that the department has adopted this new liberal policy as to tim ber cutting upon forest reserves, -and as to pasturing in the same, in order to avoid Riving them up. In my opinion it will be but a short time until practically all remaining public land having timber or brush will be turned uto forest reserves. Very truly yours, "Ii. S. Kodky, Delegate in Congress from N. M. General Land Office, ) Washington, D. C, January 27, 1902. J JIon. B. S. Kodey, U. S. House Representatives, Sir: : 1 am in receipt, by reference from the department, of your let ter of December 5, 1901, inclosing a petition signed by miners and other residents of the Cooney -Mining District within the Gila Forest Keserve, New Mexico, praying the elimination of said district from the reserve. . I am also in receipt, by refer ence from the department, for -proper filing, of a letter address ed by you to the President, on January 2, 1902, transmitting a oiumerously signed petition for the elimination from the reserve of certain therein described lands. . In reply I have the honor to in form you that the conditions ex isting in this reserve have been "made the subject of recent exam ination by the U. S. Geological Survey, with the result that, on December 20, last, the director of the Geological Survey advised the Secretary of the Interior as follows: . "I return herewith the papers concerning the proposed reduc tion of the Gila Kiver Forest Re serve in New Mexico. Examin ations made during the past sea son show that of the area includ vd within this reserve, the moun tains are everywhere covered with a growth of yellow pine timber, and that most of the lower country is clothed with piñón, juniper and oak; that the arable tracts in the valley of Wan Francisco river are very small, and that all the areas suitable for agriculture have been taken up and are now in private lands. It docs not seem to me advisa ble or necessary, on any account, to reduce this reserve. For the yrotcction of the water supply, it is desirable that both the yellow pine and less valuable forests of the lower country be retained in the control of the general gov ernment, in order that the cut ting may be conducted in such wanner as not to destroy the pro ductive influence of the forest. The same is true regarding the mines of this region. Unless the timber supply for the mines is re tained under the control of the government, the timber will soon be destroyed, and in a few years the mines will be without any local supply of timber. I do not mean by this to restrict in any way the necessary supply of tim ber to the mines, but Í believe that while supplying the mines with all the timber they require, provisions can be made for the regrowth, and destruction of timber by fire can be prevented. On these accounts I do not recommend that the reserve be reduced." ; Upon consideration of this re port, the department directs this office to take no further action on Ibt proposed reduction in the area of this reserve. .. ...

New York News: Members of the Eclectic club held a meeting at Delmonico's to nominate offi cers for the ensuing year yester day. Mrs. George Howe Wink ler is the rival of Mrs. Mark W. Potter for the vice presidency. It has been reported that the former had revealed club secrets, and the discussion of this fur nished powder for the explosion. Explanations were given and re ceived in silence. Then Mrs. Potter addressed the meeting, declaring women to be more adaptable, more culti vated and generally better read than men. Mrs. Richard Stearns replied: "The question of the balance be tween men and women reminds me of an act I once saw at the circus called the balancing act. It was between the elephant and the goat, and the elephant al ways balanced the goat. Men are elephants and we are goats. Men are more unselfish." The meeting ended in confusion. THE HOME ;0LI (THE.

For this reason we want to acquaint them with what we consider one of the very best remedies on the market for coughs, colds, and that alarming complaint, croup. We refer to Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. We have used it with such pood results in our family so long that it has become a household neces sity.

Washington, Mo., is the home of the "Missouri meerschaum," renowned the world over for its sweet smoke. Many years ago a woodturner, having plenty of time on his hands, created from a common cob a pipe. Two years ago he died a rich man. From his first lot of pipes, sold at the corner grocery, the manu facture has increased until today one house turns out the enormous number of 17,000,000 cob pipes annually. They go to nearly every part of the globe. The meerschaum cob is found only in the Missouri river bot toms and within a radius of thirty miles of Washington. The corn on this cob is not un usual, being about the same as any other seed corn raised in Kansas, Nebraska or Iowa, but it is an extremely solid cob, as hard as oak. Imitators have taken the seed and attempted to raise this corn in various parts of the country, but have always failed to mature the cobs properly. Washington is the center of an agricultural paradise. The farmers can be seen driving into town every day, some of them with regular caravans, bringing their cobs to market, and they get more for their cobs than they do for the corn on them. The average price of cobs ranges from one to two cents a pound. Some of the farmers have annual incomes of $4000 derived from the cob product only. After the cobs are brought in from the farms they are seasoned from one to three years before they are ready to be "piped." Soldiers and sailors the world over and people in many foreign lands have heard of Missouri only through one medium the Missouri meerschaum. A. E. Howell, Socorro, and W. M.
