A NATIONAL b -- c Awakening to the Need of Forest Preservation. f "In the last ten years," says the t yearbook of the Department Agricul- I ture for 1907, "forestry has advanced s in this country from an almost un- 1 known science to a useful growing t profession. In that time the number t of technically trained foresters has I increabed from less than a dozen to over 400. Ten years ago there was not a single forest school in the coun- 1 try; now there are several profession- 1 al forest schools which rank with those of Europe, and a score more 4 with courses in elementary forestry whose usefulness is steadily growing. Forest lands under management have grown from one or two, tracts to many, aggregating 7,503,00(0 acres, scattered through 38 states. T'Ii National For ests have increased from 39,000,000 acres, practically unustied and unpro tPcted. to 165,000,"000 acres, used, guarded, and improved, both in pro ductiveness and accessibility. The number of states which have state for ests has increased fr,,m one to 10, and of those which emplo(v trained forest ers from none to eleven.

Ten years ago, except for a few of the foremost botanists, European forest ers knew more about American forests than did the people of this country. In Europe they were then using pre servatives to prolong the service of beech ties, and so adding from twenty to forty years to their life. Here, on the other hand, scarcely a treated tie had been laid, though there are now 60 treating plants, 27 of which treat ties exclusively, and an engineer who recently returned from Europe reports that both in size and mechanical per fection the treating equipment of this country is ahead of any to be found abroad. "And yet American forestry has only safely passed the experimental stage and got ready to do something. Action, immediate and vigorous, must be taken if the inevitable famine of wood supplies is to be lessened. We are now using as much wood in a single year as grows in three, with onLy twenty ytars' supply of virgin growth in sight. Only the application of forest knowledge with wisdom, method and energy, in the next ten years, can prevent the starving of National industries for lack of wood."

Harvey Dillon, the new president o1 of the State board of health, has is- A sued instructions to the presidents of s the several police juries throughout p the State, notifying them of the sus- 'j pension of the enforcement of the pure ii food and drug law as adopted by the a Irion administration. Dr. Dillom is f especially ouposed to the refilling e clause of.the law, whereby druggists t are prohibited from refilling prescrip- ( tions, except on order from the ph~ysi cilan writing it. Ha deems this a seri ous case of class legislation, but would retain some such measure in reference to.the retilling of prescrip tions for habit forming drugs. Tl'his '.ha w of t!:he pare food law, re cently enacted by the Irion adiminis tration, is, and always has been. very unpopular with the people, and we doubt not that Dr. Dillon will receive the hearty support of the people throughout the State for his stand in this matter.

A sample of what rice will do for the owner came to our notice the first, of the week, when C. S. Saxby, who had rented twelve acres of land from Aveon Fontenot, sold the crop and gave the owner a check for $118.57, or practically $10 per acre rent money. This was purely for rent of land, not including water fertilizer sacks or anything else, the land being rented for one-sixth of the proceeds of the crop, the tenant marketing and selling the same. This was on old land, and doubtless the same care and attention given to new land would have brought even bettlr results. Thus, the land t owner's share netted him as much per I acre as is being asked for thousands of acres of tirst-class rice lant in this section of the country. If rice land - tht will pa-. for itself from a single crop is not a good investment, we Y would like to see something that is. e e The best line;,of Blankets and n Comforts at the Welsh Furniture Store. d Don't forget t1 Big Piano it Contest at the Southern Mercantile 1.1Co., Ltd.
