"God mado tho country, man mado
tho town." Tho census statistics of
thrco of tho lending countries of th?
world, which havo been recently en
gaged in taking stock of their popula
tion, show that In nil three tho peoplo
are steadily drifting from "God's coun
try" to tho man made towns.
Tho figures of tho census of tho Un
ited States testified eloquently to the
superior attractions of the cities,,
especially in the older states. The
story told by tho Ohio census is typical
of that of other states that havo pro
grossed so far as to havo cities of con
siderable size within their limits. Of
the eighty-eight counties In the state
tho largest gains, and they were very
largo in somo of them, with tho single
exception of Hamilton were in those
having thrlvlm cities, while In twenty-two
of the purely agricultural coun
ties there was an nctual loss of popu
lation In the ten years.
The decennial census of Great Brit
ain and the quinquennial census of
France, both of which were recently
taken, havo not yet been completely
tabulated, but tho partial reports
made public Indicate the general re
sults. In both tho drift from the coun
try towards the cities, from meadow
and plow-land to paved streets, from
clear skies to murky, soot laden at
mosphere, has been more marked in
tne latest census periods than before.
The rural districts in both countries
aie shrinking in population, many of
the smaller villages are practically de
populated, and In Franco even some
cities of considerable size show an ac
tual decrease, owing to a decline In
particular industries which were their
An attempt is made to account for
the decay of the agricultural districts
in England by ascribing It to the dis
astrous workir.g of free trade. This
argument, however, will not apply In
either tho United States or France,
both of which have for years had the
benefits of .rotectivo tariffs. Yet the
poulation statistics of these countries
as well as of Great Britain tell the
story of an Increasing drift from the
country to the big cities from the farm
to the factory. Tho cause for this In
creasing tide from "God's country" to
man mado towns lies deeper than in
tariff schedules. Plain Dealer.

It is now generally known and un
derstood that Drunkenness is a disease
and not weakness. A body filled with
poison, and nerves completely shatter
ed by periodical or constant use of in
toxicating liquors, requires an antl
dote capable of neutralizing and eradi
cating this poison, and destroying the
craving for intoxicants. Sufferers may
now cure themselves at home without
publicity or loss of time from business
by this wonderful "HOME GOLD
CURE" which has been perfected after
many years of close study and treat
ment of inebriates. The faithufl use
according to directions of this wonder
ful discovery is positively guaranteed
to cure the most obstinate case, no
matter how hard a drinker. Our rec
ords show the marvelous transforma
tion cf thousands of Drunkards into
sober, industrious and upright men.

Tho following timely article Is tak
en from the St. Louis Globe-Democrat:
The estimate that tho damage to
property by the floods in tho Ohio
River Valley will reach $3,000,000
shows the great losses to tho country
which have resulted from the whole
sale dcstruqtlon of forests which has
been going on for the past third of a.
century. These floods are repeated
year after year with but llttlo varia
tion, nnd they occur along the Mis
souri and tho, Mississippi as well as on
the banks of the Ohio. Some years
the destruction Is less in tho Ohlo'Val
ley than it has been In 1901, but in
other years it has been much greater.
Destructive freshets were reported
along the Ohio in tho early days 'of the
settlement of that region. Tho resi
dents at Marietta and vicinity a hun
dred years aro were occasionally
troubled by high water In the spring,
but tho damage, even allowing for
the vast Increase in the value of the
property along the river since then. Is
vastly greater now than it was In tho
old days. Floods como oftener now
than they did then, and the rise in the
river is greater, though largo stretches
of country were overflowed more than
once along tho Ohio in the early part
of the historic period.
The destruction of tho forests along
the river is the prime cause of the
greater rise of the water during the
flood periods of today than occurred
two-thirds of a century ago, or even
half a century ago. Hundreds of
square miles of trees are wantonly
sacrificed along the watershed of all
tne great rivers every year, though
there has been a little let-up in the de
vastation recently. Thus the precipi
tation by the rains is not held back as
formerly, but is poured into the
streams, and these sending their con
tents suddenly into the rivers cause
vast overflows in which houses are
swept away, railroads are submerged,
and many lives lost. This is the gen
eral course of things almost every
spring. The efforts of tho govern
ment to compensate for the loss ofithe
forests by the construction of dams to
hold back the water in spots aro Tain
except that thev diminish the destruc
tiveness to some extent The restora
tion of the forests, so far as this is
practicable, is the only means of les
sening the devastation which Uke3
place every spring along tho bankB of
most of the great Western rivers.

Shows April to Have Been an Active Month
In Oil Circles.
For a quiet, uneventful month in the
on neius, April presents a few sur
prising features, the most notable
of which is the Increase in we..., com
pleted and new production. But .c
must be borne in mind that March was
an unexceptional month in this particu
lar and presented the lowest figures
that had been recorded in a long time.
Not only were the producers very ac
tive in the Pennsylvania regions but
the Lima oil districts of Ohio and In
diana show heavy gains along the
Tho efforts to discover new pools met
with the usual results during April as
shown by the very, large list of dry
holes. The Southwest, however, con
tinues to furnish a rreat many odd
nooks and corners, in old or partially
derined territory, where a good well
may be struck at almost any moment.
Sand Fork, which has been almost rel
egated to the "has beens," showed
some strong symptoms of a revival the
past month and with nine good welte
to her credit, brought about an in
crease in tho daily production of that
section. There are a number of prom
ising locations in the vicinity and a
pool of very respectable proportions is
means an impossibility.
The summary for April in the Penn
sylvania fields presents 418 productive
wells and 171 dusters and the aggregate
production is placed at 8,224 barrels.
The increase over March is 72 wells, 3C
dusteis and 1,440 barrels new produc
tion. In April, a year ago, there wero
614 productive wells and 183 dusters
completed and the new production was
