It is announced that the supplement al tours of the New York Symphony Orchestra, which is to be heard in Asheville at the Auditorium on Satur day April 28th, will be made an annual eyent if the present experiment proves as successful as is anticipated. Under the direction of Loudon G. Charlton, the famous organization will visit the principal cities of this section, offering programmes of the highest order and presenting soloists of the foremost rank. The credit of bringing the Ne York Symphony to its present high state of efficiency belongs solely to Mr. Walter Damroscb, its organiser, who will con duct on the present tour Frob ibly no musician in America, with the possible exception of Thomas, has done more to raise musical standards, or has worked more unselfishly with this single aim in view. For years Mr. Damroseh labored in New York under adyerse conditions, but finally hi's efforts received the ap preciation that they warranted. 'ATith a genrous endowment to insure aug mented numbers and increased efficien cy, the orchestra . now rests on a solid basis. . .

Special railroad rates for this occasion Trie Appalachian Park . 8a turday there will be a combined meeting in Washington of the various state delegates from Maine .to Texas, who have been appointed to appeal to congress to anoroDriate the money -for Anoalachiad Park This is work in the riht direction and it is the outcome of the recent convention in Charlotte. The dele grates can only make known, the wishes of the people they represent The real power to act and secure results rests with the congressmen and senators. Certainly the object ' sought is wide enough in t he scope to " appeal to ma jority of congress. While the inhabi tants of the Atlantic cost "are most, di rectly interested, it should appeal to all the states east of the Mississippi river. In regard to the whole problem there are just two vital questions to consider. First of all, it is evident that the supply of timber standing in the United States will be exhausted in fifty years, fn the second place, a timber tree cannot be errown in les than seventy-five years. Therefore should nothing be done now adequate to keep the supply up to re quirements. We shall find ourselves without a timber supply before the gen eration now born reach maturity. - In connection with this question we wish to call our readers attention to the pamphlet recently published in Hender sonville by Mr. Thomas P. Ivy on "For estry Problems in the United States " There the subject is thoroughly canvass ed. We hope the pamphlet will open the eyes of congress and the country to the true situation. Forestry is the basin of every industry in the United 8tates, for there is no Industry that does not in manufacture, transportation or con sumption-call at more or less points upon the forest for aid. . The present forest policy at Wash ington, to say the least, is not broad enough for the whole country and seems to be able to see nothing needed to be done except in the far west. It is the duty of the senators and congressmen from the east to change this policy. They should vote for no appropriation that is not to be expended in a fair pro portion whenever forestry work had to be done- They have the votes that con trol the purse strings. Let them use that power to force a change in the present policy at Washington. Notice of Tax Sale.
