There are two big questions up to llic pe pie oi tt;u

The war, as war. to all intents and purjx ses i- over
this country is concerned, but the burdens which we have b

REFORESTRATION A VITAL QUESTION.
A very few generations hence and the world will practically i liP'"!-! ,arii
be without forests, unless there shall be something done very soon installed for the c
to reforest the places which have been depleted, stripped of the worthy matron
trees which once covered them. P. S. Lovejoy, who is a member; Worthy patron
of the University of Michigan forestry faculty, recently contributed conuctressv"
an article relating to the disappearing trees which at one time Associate condu
covered vast areas of Northern Michigan. t the very a mmence Mter.

poorer, instead of richer, from year to year, producing less and Pianist Madge
less of value. This third of Michigan takes in 10,000,000 acres gyivla Johnson 11
or so, the most part of it being in the northern part of the lower Esther; Florence I
peninsula, the rest in the upper peninsula. "The bulk of these hank ; rts Trowbridge, K

With this vast amount of waste land, capable oi leinc re

that for the sake of the future of the country, reforesting should for the si
be commenced at once. A very important commodity obtained called a n
