From Sunday schools and other or

whether it Is consistent to urge con-
servauon or rorest resources and then
to cut millions of young trees every
year to afford a little Joy in the pass

"Yes, It Is consistent and proper
that the custom should be maintain
ed," has been the answer of United
States Forester Gifford Pinchot in
every case. "Trees are for use, and
there is no other use to which they
could be put which would contribute
so much to the joy of man as their

Los Angeles, Cal., Dec. 29. It Is
expected that the three Mexican "pa
triots," Magon, Villarreal and RIvert,
who have been held 'incommunicado'
In the Los Angeles Jail since July 7,
will be placed on trial next month on
the charge of violating the neutrality
laws of the United States. The prls-
n oners, two of whom, ere editors and
mo imiu a. conetje proiessor, are
members of the organizing Junta of
the Mexican Liberal party, and are
alleged to have been engaged in fer
menting an armed revolution against
the DI82 government from the terri
tory of the United States.
In an appeal for funds for the de
fense, which has been circulated
throughout the United States, it Is
admitted that "after President Diaz
destroyed the right of a free ballot In
Mexico, the Liberal party called up
on all Mexican citizens to fight for
their constitutional rights."
IS DUE TO CUTICURA
"With the exception of his bands and
feet, my son Clyde (thirteen years old)
"was almost completely covered with
eczema. Physicians treated him for
nearly a year without helping him any.
(While they were very kind and did all in
their power, yet nothing seemed to re
'lieve him. And I had tried many rem
edies sent to me by kind friends but they
ail failed. His head, face, and neck were
covered with large scabs which he would
rub until they fell off. Then blood and
matter would run out and that would be
worse. Many a time he looked as if
his ears would drop off. Friends com
ing to see him said that if he got well fas
would be disfigured for life.
"When it seemed as if he could pos
sibly stand it no longer, I decided to
try Cuticura. I bought a cake of Cuti
cura Soap, a box of Cuticura Ointment,
and a bottle of Cuticura Resolvent. I
used them in the evening and that was
the first night for nearly a year that he
alept. This may sound exaggerated
to you, but in the morning there was S
great change for the better. In about
six weeks you could not have told that
be had ever had an y t hi n g wron g wi t h hi ra.
I treated him twice a day for six months
and at present he has a fine complexion
and not a scar on his body. This story
may seem overdrawn, but neither words
nor pen can describe Clyde's suffering
and how he looked. Our leading phy
sician. Dr. . recommends the Cuti

It is necessary to take timber from
an area of more than 100,000 acres
every day of the year.
"It Is true that there has been se

cutting of Christmas trees In various

young evergreens for use at Christ
mas Is lnfinltesmal when compared
un me loss or rorest resources
through fires and careless methods of
lumbering. The proper remedy Is not
to stop using trees but to adopt wiser
methods of use.
It Is generally realized that a cer
tain proportion of land must always
be used for forest growth. Just as for
other crops. Christmas trees are one
form of this crop. There is no more
reason for an outcry against using
land to grow Christmas trees than to

The forest service upholds the
Christmas tree custom, but recognizes
at the same time that the Indiscrimi
nate cutting of evergreens to supply
the holiday trade has producotl & bad
effect Upon many stands of merchant
able trees in different sections of
the country., Waste and destruction
usually result when woodlands are not
under a proper system of forest man
agement. Foresters say that it Is not
by denying ourselves the wholesome
pleasure of having a bit of nature In
the home at Christmas that the prob
lem of conserving the forests will be
solved, but by learning how to use the
forests wisely and properly. The rav
ages through forest fires must be
checked, the many avenues of waste
of timber In its travel from the woods
to the mill and thence to the market
must be closed, and almost number
less Important problems demand at
tentlon before the Christmas tree.
Germany is conceded to have the
highest developed system of forest
management of any country, yet its
per capita use of Christmas trees Is
greatest. The cutting of small trees
for Christmas Is not there consider
ed In the least as a menace to the for
est, but, on the contrary, as a means
of Improving the forest by thinning
and as a source of revenue. It Is
therefore, constantly encouraged.
There is little doubt but that the
time will come when the Christmas
tree business will become a recognlz
ed Industry In this country, and that
as much attention will be given to It
as will be given to the growing of
crops of timber for other uses. This
time may not be far off, for It is al
ready understood that only through
the practice of forestry, which means
both the conservation of the timber
which remains and carefully planned
systems of reforestation, will it be
possible to supply the country with its
forty billion feet of lumber needed
each year, as well as the few million
little trees used at Christmas time.
