Address MUNN a CO., *•* Broadway, Sew York. Status of tbe fEtmber Xanbs. Frank Steunenberg. governor of Idaho, arrived in Lewiston Mon day morning at 8 o'clock and left at noon yesterday for Moscow. The governor's visit was informal and business-like, most of the time having been spent with settlers and guides who are familiar with the adjacent timber lands. The governor himself has been in the timber for a few days, traveling with a pack train and swimming the éwoolen mountain streams. There had been so much confusion and conflict of statements regarding the filing on those timber lands that a personal inspection was desirable not only to ascertain the truth of the contention, but also to become acquainted with tbe character and worth of the proper ty so as to intelligently handle the state's interest in these lands. Last Feburary C. 0. Brown filed on 14000 acres of white pine land valued at $50,000, of which about 4000 acres was in favor of the uni* yersity and the remainder for the normal schools. The investiga tion disclosed that all of the land was of good average quality, büt that the university had been un duly favored by picking out choice sections here and there, giving it all high grade timber and giving the other institutions average grade. Otherwise there was no objection to Brown's work as he had no authority except to maae the oath and tiling at the Lewiston land office. The complaint that he located individuals on the best land did not affect the public, as he has never been employed to select land for the state but only to estimate the amount of timber upon it. Ben McConnell, of Mos cow, selected the lands. Since making the selection last February Mr. Brown has been locating per sons in the timber, which it seems he had a right to do as his employ ment with the state ceased then. Gov. Steunenberg filed on 4000 acres for the state in the Lewiston land office. Expert timber men at the land office reported that a fair sample of the Clearwater timber land would scale 2,000,000 feet of white pine to (he quarter section, worth $1.25 a thousand feet. It will therefore be seen what a magnificent heri tage Idaho has in her timber re sources, and what vast opportuni ties are alive for dedicating this wealth to useful industry. And while it mav seem uncommon for a state's governor to descend to the toil and hardship of personally ex ploring and studying the resources it is yet cause for great gratitude that the executive will devote his ollice and authority to the protec tion of this property and its utili zation for the public benefit. It will be observed that the governor has not yet grown familiar with the cravat, nor does he travel with official staff and pageant. The people are beginning to learn, though, that he can attend strictly to bü*iné8s even though he ha» cravat and that he can get around among them without any staff. Like the illustrious Joe Bailey of 1 Texa *' the I> eo P le who elected *»"> care va *tly more about what lie does than what he wears. . Section 1.

The branding irons for such purpose shall be furnished by each respective county in Idaho; and the sheriff constable, making such sale shall receive, for his services, the sum of fifty cents per head for eâch animal branded. Approved March 12, 1897. con an or so TEbe TTcuc Criterion. The famous orator. Col. Robert G. Ingersoll, very truthfully re marks: "The place to take the tru® measure of a man is not in the market place or on the corner, not the forum Or the field, but at his own fireside. There he lays aside his masE; and you may learn whether he is imp or angel, King, or our hero or humbug. I care not a copper what his reputation or re ligion may be. If his babies dread his coming and his better half swallows her heart every time she has to ask him for a $5 bill, he's a fraud of the first water, 4 , though he prays night and morn till he is black in the face and shouts hallelujah till he shakes the eternal hills. But if his children rush to the front gate to greet him, and love s own sunshine illumines the face of his wife when she hears his foot fall, you can take it for granted that he's true gold—his home is heaven, and the humbug never gets that near the great white throne of God. He may be a rank atheist and a red flag an archist and a mugwump; he may buy votés in blocks of five ar.d bet on the election: he may deal 'em from the bottom and drink béer until he can't tell a silver dollar from a circular saw, and still he an infinitely better man than tbe cowardly humbug who's all suavity but who makes home a hell—who vents on the helpless head of wife and children the ill nature he would like to inflict on his fclloW men, but dkres not. I can forgive much in that fellow-mortal who would rather maxe men. swear than woman weep;- who would rather haVe the hate of the whole world than the cotitempt of his wife—who would rather call anger to the eyes of a King than fear to the face of a child." even Through Service.
