Time and the Changes It Brings Forth
About forty-six or forty-seven years
ago, a greasy coating was skimmed
off a spring in Pennsylvania and
found to be of commercial value and
thus the age of petroleum began.
Like, during the gold fever of a few
years before, everybody went to dig
ging and from Pennsylvania to the
western lines of Ohio, oil was found in
paying quantities,—a sea of oil as it
were. Steamships, factories, locomo
tives and mills all went to using it,
it seemed an industrial revolution
was on and the "candle mole" was
doomed to the scrap iron pile. The
whole country went petroleum and
its effect was grand. But now comes
the age of thought so we drift from
the waters that contained the petro
leum. to the potatoes and corn of

Be Kind To The Driver
Pardon us far mentioning- the fact
that occasionally farmer'""living u
long the lines of rural route have con
tributed a sack of corn, or oats, to the
carrier. This in suggestion that
might well be tided upon by the pa
trons of every rural route. Tne. car
riers have a government job but it lr
by no mean a "private snap." It
takes a good deal of management to
make both ends meet, when they are
obliged to keep two horsen. live in
town and buy all the uec-s^ary pro
visions at the market price. The
carriers of our county have gone over
their routes during the. muddy weat
her at a great inconvenience, and are
always faithful in the performance of
their duties a bushel of corn ot so giv
en to either of our carriers would
hardly be missed by our farmer friends
while it would be a great saving in
the expense of horse feed and the gen
erous act of the Audubon County far
mer svouid certainly ba appreciated
by your faithful man.

A bulletin recently issued by the for
est service of the department of agri
culture contains interesting data rela
tive to the stumpage business of the
national government. It shows hosv, as
a result of a series of legislative enact
ments beginning in 1891 under Presi
dent Harrison and closing with the
measure enacted in February, 1905,
which trausferred the entire forest in
terests of the government to the de
partment of agriculture, forest pre
sents have been created, the proper
administration of them arranged and a
skilled force trained to attend to the
detail of administrative work. The
policy upon which these forest reserves
are now administered is indicated by
the following extracts from a letter
written by Secretary Wilson to the
forester in chief:
"In the administration of the forest
reserves it must be clearly borne in
mind that all land is to be devoted to
its most productive use for the perma
nent good of the whole people and not
for the temporary benefit of individu
als or companies. All the resources of
forest reserves are for use, and this
must be brought about in a thoroughly
prompt and businesslike manner under
such restrictions only as will insure
the permanence of these resources.
"You will see to it that the water,
wood and forage of the reserves are
conserved and wisely used for the ben
efit of the home builder first of all. In
the management of each reserve local
questions will be decided upon local
grounds. Where conflicting interests
must be reconciled the question will
always be decided from the standpoint
of the greatest good to the greatest
number in the long run."
One of the important aspects of the
work under the new administration has
to do with the sale of timber from the
reserves. The amount of revenue re
ceived from this source during the year
1905 amounts to nearly $275,000. Bids
are received on those portions of the
forest reserve which can be safely cut.
The work is done under the local su
pervision of the forest service, and the
terms of sale are such that speculation
is impossible, as the timber to be cut
has to be removed within a specified
time, and in case the contract extends
over a period of years—in no case more
than five—a proportionate amount of
timber has to be removed each year.
The importance of having these tim
ber reserves under able supervision of
careful and disinterested men is real
ized when one appreciates the mag
nitude of the government's timber
holdings. A single sale of 50,000,000
feet of lodge polo pine for railroad ties
is pending on the Montana division of
the Yellowstone forest reserve, while
it is estimated that 165,000,000 feet,
board measure, of this same kind of
pine can be cut from one watershed of
the Medicine Bow forest reserve. The
entire property of the forest reserves,
worth $250,000,000 in cash, is now be
ing administered at a cost of less than
one-third of 1 per cent of its value,
while increase in that value of not
less than 10 per cent a year is taking
place. The day is thought to Be not
far distant when these reserves may
be expected to become a source of pub
lic revenue.
The boy is much the same proposi
tion whether he lives in town or coun
try—eager, restless, inquisitive, anx
ious to be at something, as a rule tired
of books, and rightly so at the close of
the school year, and you have him on
your hands this summer. What to do
with him and how to keep him em
ployed so as to' have him somewhat
more strong and rugged, with habits
of industry more firmly fixed and
possessing a better sense of his respon
sibility as a social and economic factor,
is the problem before you. The play
instinct is satisfied in the fesv days
following the close of school, and if
he is normal he will be wanting to go
to work and earn some money. While
the legal right exists of taking all the
money he can earn in return for the
expense of his keep during the remain
der of the year 'it is seldom wise to
carry it out to the letter. Let the boy
have enough to spend for the satisfac
tion of his boy's needs and encourage
the starting of a bank account. It will
not need to be large before ho will
feel a real interest in it and will want
to increase it in every way that he can.
If during the present summer there are
brought home to the boy or girl lessons
of industry and saving, it will in the
long run prove as helpful as any lesson
got l'l-oni boo'rs. In a general way it
may bo said that boys, like animals,
respond to considerate treatment. This
is their due and will also bring the
largest measure of satisfaction to both
parent and child.
Experience with onion raising cov
ering several years leads to the belief
that the most economical as well as
the most satisfactory preparation of
land for the crop consists in a summer
fallosving of the piece oL' land to be
used the season before one wishes to
raise the onioif crop. This should con
sist of successive plowiugs and disking-, I
which will result in bringing to the I
surface, germinating and killing just
as much of the weed seed in the soil
as possible. The decrease in the cost
of weeding coupled wiih the satisfac
tion of having the crop in a clean con
dition will pay for the rent of the
land three times over.
