J j WILL MAKE CENSUS OF LUMBER PRODUCTION \ »„..a..* , » , » 1 duction of the country lur r ■ 1917 is to be made by the Forest ' Service in cooperation with ttiol National lumber Mu* ("0 * .,,.*!! 1 Jt ultIS I ■ Association. as in past years. ( Questionnaires have already been mailed to the 30,000 sawmills throughout the country asking j that the amount of each kind of lumber cut be reported promptly. It is pointed out by ollicials of the Forest Service that the lum | her census is of particular im portance at this time, because of the large «luanlities of special material needed for the conduct ol the war. Several of (he Gov ernment Departments, tln-y say, depend upon the Forest Service feir data and technical advice on subjects connected with lumber. Since the entrance of the United States into the war this demand ha« been greatly increased. In many cases the information gathered by the Forest Service in previous years has made it pos sible to determine at once where certain classes of material could be obtained in (he largest quan tities and consequently has en abled the Government to get in direct touch with the proper mills I without loss of time. Hecause of the unsettled con ditions in the lumber trade in 1917. it ha.s beim somewhat dif ficult to judge the current pro duction. Heavy calls for lumber made by the Government have been partially offset by trans portation difficulties ami scarcity of labor. Officials say that it will require a careful census to determine whether the output was more or less tbap preceding years. They point out at the same time that the lumber manufacturers can ai«i (be work materially by tilling out and re turning promptly the questi.in naires that have been sent. («> t hem.

EAGLES WILL CARRY LIFE INSURANCE For some time past the Frater nal Gr«l«*r «»I Eagles have been diseasing the subject of Frater nal l.ifo-lnsurt%noe. The result of-the discussions and investiga tions carried cm was that the Grand Ai'ric of Buffalo decided add a. Life-Insurance to the beneficial features of the order. In the first place it is perhaps I. well to stale that the taking out of tills insurance is not cumpul il is option!»,]. And is any way does it interfere with the sick or death benefits, or any other beneficial or recreational at present in vogue with our Sub ordinate Aeries. Reduced to the simplest terms, there are two mentis by which an ordinary man is moved to in sure his life. The first is solici tai ion through either printed ad vertising or lh<* personal appear- | mice of an agent. Both methods of solicitation arc employed by I successful commercial insurance companies, whether stock or ( mutual they are, however, costly, and form the chief item in the expense of operating. The other way in whioli per sons are induced to insure is through the influence of associa tion. The tendency to do as »Ibers <lo, this is the motive ex •rleil in a fralertial body, and it nothing. Hence fraternal life insurance can be offered at a lower price than the commercial or old line insurance. Some of the further a«l ■ f fraternal Iifinsur ance may be enumerated as fol lows : First: If is a co-operative in stitution, not organized for profit nor for the benefit of one person or a few persons. They are asso vantages jciate.l together for protection of one another. Seconil : This work of the fra*t ernal society is not like life in îsnrance but it is protection. It 'gives aid in case of sickness, and secures a benetit to be paid in case of death, and in that way serves as a protection for the home. Third: Since this protection is secured by a mall monthly pay ment, the benefit are obtained at an expense that is not burden seme. And few men are unable to pay the premiums. The cost is small compared with the benefit, Fourth: The protection that is given is made secure by exemp lions from claims of creditors, a benefit certificate cannot bo pledged. No creditors can "at lach" any portion of the amount t, be paid at death. The money goes direct to the persons who npp .« o l,etH1 11 m °si.

In case of death will receive the sum of one thousand dollars from the Frat ernal Order of Eagles. Another good feature about Un> Fraternal Order of Eagles, is that they have bought over a million dollars worth of Liberty Homls and are going to buy more. The reason this is mentioned is because there has been a certain element trying to make it appear that the Fraternal Order of Eagles has been very unpatriotic, which is a falsehood, and furthermore, I don't think there is an awful lot of truth to such an element that will advocate such talk. Another good feature about the Fraternal Order of Eagles are that they give free meilical treat ment to himself, his wife or his children. And during sickness or | i', I accident will receive seven dol lars a week, and in ease of death Life is sometimes free burial, what we make it. Fraternally yours, THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF EAGLES. P.
