, The Greatest Ijumber Cut.
More lumber was cut in the United
States last year than in any other
year of Us history. . The enormous
amount of oT.oou.dlb board feet was
produced, it is stated, and the mill
value of this was $(21,151,SS3. In ad
dition there were produced 11.S5S.200,
000 shingles, valued at $24,155,555, and
3.S12.S07.OO0 lath, valued at $11,490,
ui". uu ine wnoie, u is saie to say
that the present annual lumber cut of
the United States approximates 40
Oou.000,000 feet, and that the total
mill value of the lumber, lath and
shingles each year produced is not
less than ?70i,ixm,i!un. These hgures
give some idea of how vast is the lum
ber industry and how great is the de
mand for its products.
A glance- at the kinds of lumber pro
duced shows very clearly the passing
of white pine and oak, one the great
est softwood and the other the great
est hardwood which the forest has
ever grown. Since 1S99 the cut of
white pine has fallen off more than 40
per cent, while that of white oak has
fallen off more than 36 per cent. To
day yellow pine leads all the other
woods in amount cut, while Douglas
fir and this will be a surprise to
many comes second. Since. 1S99 the
cut of Douglas fir has increased ISO
per cent. Louisiana is the foremhst,
yellow pine state, with Texas, Missis
sippi and Arkansas following. in order.
Washington produces by far the great
est amount of Douglas fir.

ROBERT REXDALE.
Mr. Iloosevelt Versus
Roosevelt.
In 1SU6 Theodore Roosevelt, then
holding the comparatively humble
position of police commissioner of
New York, published in the Review
of Reviews the following opinion as
to those who had anything to say
against government by injunction:
"The men who object to what they
style 'government by injunction are,
as regards the essential principles of
government, in hearty sympathy with
their remote, skinclad ancestors who
lived in caves, fought one another
with stone-headed axes and ate the
mammoth and whoolly rhinoceros.
They are interesting as representing
a geological survival. But they are
dangerous whenever there is the least
chances of their making the princi
ples of this age-buried past factors
In our present life."
At the time this was written the
chief proponent of the doctrine that
the injunction was used unjustly and
almost criminally against the labor
unions was John P. Altgeld, then
governor of Illinois, now dead, but a
man known to those who knew him in
life, as a sage and admitted by those
who disliked him in life to have been
a true prophet. What the then police
commissioner of New York had to say
about Governor Altgeld the proprieties
prevent . any repeating now that the
police commissioner Is president. But
although Altgeld then knew of the
bitter attacks made upon him by
Roosevelt, he might today, were he
living, forget them all if he could read
this paragraph froni the presidential
message of the man who wrote the
paragraph quoted above:
"I again call your attention to the
need of some action in connection
with the abuse of injunctions In labor
cases. This matter is daily
becoming of greater importance, and
I cannot too urgently recommend that
the congree give careful considera
tion to the subject. If some way of
remedying the abuses Is not found,

Frank Inconsistency.
John Hunter, one of the pioneers in
the practice of medicine over a cen
tury ago, was absolutely blind to any
theory unsupported by facts. While
many men were guessing out things
he was seeking to prove them.
"I love to think." he said to one of
his colleagues, though he afterward
qualified the statement by an almost
contradictory one:
"But why think? Why not make the
experiment?"
Like other men of r al genius, he
was not afraid of seeming Inconsistent.
Sir Astley Cooper once asked him. with
some surprise. If he had not once stat
ed an opinion directly at variance with
one he had just put forth, and he replied:
"Very likely. I hope I grow wiser
every year."
Again a pupil inquired if be bad not
written to a certain effect.
"Never ask me what I have said." he
returned, "or whet I bsva written.
But if you ask me what my present
opinions are I will tell you."
Sometimes, too. bewould say to pu
pils who were taking down notes:
"You had better not write down that
observation. Very likely I shall think
differently next year."

"Consumption had me in its grasp;
and I had almost ieached the jumping

The stagecoach rattled out of thu lit
tle town of Redding at C o'clock on a
snappy December evening. The driver
swung his six horses with great flour-j
lsh and cracking of whip through the
rough but level road of the main street
and out at the north end of the town.
A brilliant dash down the steep in
cline to the creek, and he brought the
coach far up the road on the other side,
where the mountains rose so suddenly
from the plains. And so began the
climb over the divide.
The thrJe passeugers inside the
coach, a young girl and two men, ap
parently accustomed to this mode of
traveling, did not brace themselves to
resist the pitching and rolling of the
pouderous vehicle, but allowed them
selves to sway with its every motion.
The road was broken and rough from
the heavy autumn rains. Once the
coach struck a "chuck hole." which al
most brought the iumates to their feet
and caused a general friendly laugh.
Up to this time the girl had paid no
attention to ner reuow travelers. Mie
had been absorbed with her own home
sick thoughts. To start the drudgery
of a governess life, miles from no
where, with no prospect of returning
home for a year, was depressing. Oh,
well, she must make the best of it
She tried to distinguish the men's faces,
but it wps too dark, and both were
muffled in heavy overcoats. As they
boarded the coach at Redding she had
noticed one was an old man, the other
ray as to hair, broad, strong and
youthful as to shoulders.
The older man sat beside her on the
back seat. The two men chatted about
the rich "strike" In Deadwood, where
fortunes were being made In a day.
She gathered that the young old man
was mining an old hydraulic property
just beyond Lewiston, and he was on
his way there. YelK she was going
"Just beyond Lewiston" also, and she
wondered if this huse person was to
bo a neighbor of hers.
Their desultory talk gradually died
away, the old man fell asleep, and bis
head bobbed and swayed and ducked
about until he seemed In danger of
losing it, but he slept on oblivious of
such alarming possibilities.
At 11 o'clock they reached the Half
way House, and while the driver
changed horses the passengers stretch
ed their cramped limbs, pacing the
narrow porch of the inn. Later they
went into the low, long dining room,
where a cold lunch and hot coffee were
served them on a table spread with a
red and white cloth. The girl saw
that the young-old giant could not be
more than thirty-seven or thirty-eight
years old. though his" hair was silver.
And such blue eyes: They' seemed

clouded were they, i I
He supplied her needs at the table
without seeming to do so. and when
the driver called "All aboard!" bo
helped her into the coach In the same
unobtrusive manner.'
The fresh Morses, only four now, as
the heavy climb was over, pulled the
stace alone at a livelier pace, and
within a half hour they had reached
the summit of the divide and com
menced the descent.
The driver cracked his whip, and
they whirled down the narrow moun
tain road, swinging the horses Tar out
on the very edge of the embankment
as they turned the outward curve of
the mountain and then sweeping rapid
ly in at the bend as only a stage
driver can and keep his coach in the
middle of the road.
It was a magnificent night, the moon
light making it clear as day. The
girl from her window could see in
numerable lofty peaks of the great
coast range stretching In what seemed
a level line.
The passengers were startled by a
sudden jerking of the coach and a wild
imprecation from the driver.
"Something's wrong." said the giant.
and he opened the window on the right
hand side and looked out. In a mo
ment he drew back.
"The off lead has broken the inside
trace and is frightened." he said as he
divested himself of his overcoat. The
driver must have some help. "Don't
be nervous" this to the young girl
"We'll fix it all right"
He opened the door and stood on the
step a second, liy this time tue terror
of the runaway was communicated to
the other horses, and they were fast
getting beyond control. The coach was
rockins and pitching at a tremendous
rate.
"Close the door after I get on top,'
he called to the old man, who was
thoroughly awake by this time, and
then, waiting rntil the coach swung
around the Inner curve, ne put ouo
foot halfway up the door on the open
window ledge and, grasping the low
railing above, pulled himself up on to
the top of the coach.
The girl had closed the door and
leaning far out, watched him as the
swinging coach permitted step to the
seat of the driver and over the dash
board to the tongue. A terrible lurch
nnd he had to pause and hold on for a
moment.
"mil hard on the wheelers," he said
to the driver. "I'll look after the
there."
Slowly he began moving along the
tongue of the wagon, and the girl felt
Bure he was talking to and reassuring
the horses, for his presence did not ;
teem to further alarm the poor fright
?ned brutes.
The girl's hands suddenly grasped
the sides of the window as she saw
him near the end of the narrowing
tongue and realized what be purposed
doing. For a moment he paused to pat
tbe.necjt of thg.wjieeler; tben. stand
ing with one Yoot ou the swinging sin
gletree, he gave a tremendous leap
and sprang to the back of the mad
dened leader. He drew himself alone
over the foaming creature's shoulder
and, reaching forward, succeeded in
freeing the bit from its clinched teeth.
then, talking softly and centlv nattinc
Its neck, gradually quieted the poor
animal, which now. resnondins to the
sawing of the reins, came to a stand
still halfway down the mountain side.
The man sprang to the ground, as
did t-lje driver, and together they mend
ed the trace aud looked over the entire
harness. The horses, steaming and
trembling, were now docile as lambs.
You'll have no further trouble to
night." said the man to the driver.
"These poor brutes are pretty thor
oughly exhausted."
"Smoking Jehoshaphat. but that was
a close suave:" said the driver. "We'd
all been in kingdom come if it hadn't
been for you."
'Oh. not as bad as that. I guess!"
answered the man and. turning to the
horse who had caused all the trouble.
'You would have come to your senses
in time, wouldn't .vou. old bov?" The
horse answered by rubbing his head
against the man's shoulder.
The giant walked back and climbed
into the coach as though nothing un
usual had occurred, but the driver as
he mounted to his seat and gathered
up the reins muttered: "That dod-
gasted horse uever giv' in like that to
anybody In his life before. That fel
ler's a reg'lar charmer, like the one in
the show at Frisco."
And as the stage rattled ou he would
say every few minutes. "A reg'lar
charmer, that's wot he is."
They made fairly good time thereaft
er and just at dawn pulled up before
the door of a small hotel in Lewiston
As the girl, very pale, stepped to the
ground she held out her hand to the
silver haired giant, saying:
"1 want to thank you. 1 saw what
you did, and it was that which fright
ened me most. You saved our lives
I shall never forget it Goodby," and
she disappeared into the hotel.
He saw her several times after that
at the Peterson ranch just below bis
mine. He learned that she was the
new governess for the Feterson chil
dren, but was always busy when he
called at their ranch. And how often
It seemed necessary to see Tetersou
lately, even though be never had more
than a moment's talk with her.
One day a terrible storm came up,
and it rained unceasingly, which kept
the giant busy strengthening the reser
voirs. The next morning he was awak
ened by the roar of rushing water.
Dressing hurriedly and putting on his
high rubber boots, he was soon down
at the point of the hill where be could
see that Peterson's ranch was entire
ly submerged, the house seeming to
stand In the center of a lake, with
the water gradually rising past the
window silis. He hurried down the
hill and waded through the three feet
of water to the house. He climbed
through a window, and (there on the
stairs sat the girl.
"Throw something warm over your
head and shoulders and come down,'
he called.
The girl unhesitatingly complied. He
opened the door with great difficulty;
then mounting the stairs halfway be
gathered her in his arms and without
a "by your leave" 6trode out of the
door through the water to the hills.
"The storm is abating, and the wa
ter will soon recede, but you could not
remain there. My foreman's wife will
make you comfortaqle."
How small and light she was! He
could carry her so forever! And how
disgustingly narrow the flooded valley
seemed! Reluctantly he placed her on
the rising ground.
"Where were the Petersons?" be
asked.
"They went to visit relatives on the
X-Bar ranch. Oh, they left the hired
man with me! He had just gone, as
you came, to see what he could get In
the way of a boat or a balloon."
Then still in a laughing tone, though
her eyes filled, she said, "It seems to
be your business to come to my res
cue." "Won't you give me the job for
life?" he asked eagerly. "I believe I
could prevent disaster touching you,
even a flood."
And, looking up into his 6trong,
powerful face, she answered. "I be
lieve you could," as she put both hands
in his.

SLEIGHING IS FINE-AND
WEATHER NICE IN CANADA
Mrs. Agnes Bleuer-Swartz, Formerly of
This City, Writes from New
Home in Saskatchewan.
Morse, Saskatchewan, Canada, Jan.
29. Editor Argus: Perhaps many
are thinking that this country is froze
up and snowed in this time of the year,
as it was in 1900 ana VMi. No, one
could not wish for a finer winter than
the one we are now experiencing. We
can say that the weather is grand.
We have an average of about 20 to 25
days of .beautiful sunshine in every
month, the coldest weather we have
had being 20 below zero, and that was
only one night. Before and after that
the mercury has been hovering around
40 above and zero.
Snow? No, we have not an over
plenty, about six or eight inches on the
level and just enough for excellent
sleighing. Say! let that U. S. A. club
come up and we will give you one of
the finest sleigh rides yotL ever ex-
2 a. m. and one can read fine print in
a newspaper at 9 o'clock in the even
ing on clear nights. Then the days
do not get hot, just nice enough to be
coinfoi table. You see the air here is
so dry that one does not mind the ex
treme heat and cold as you would
where the air is damp. The evenings
are cool, so much so that a person can
sleep very comfortable between cotton
blankets, and if one is in any way in
clined to be on the sick order one-half
dozen whiffs of this fresh air that is
not smoke laden will be a sure cure.
Our homostead Is - situated about
five miles from the main line of the
Canadian Pacific railway, the road ex
tending from coast to coast, and we
are about six and one-half miles from
Morse, a small town that when we
landed here contained the water tank
and pump nouse, a small depot, one
dwelling and a small store. It has
grown this last summer until now it
contains one general store, two large
livery barns, one 15-room hotel, one
boarding house, one blacksmith shop,
one butcher shop, one implement yard
and a lumber yard and also a public
I school. You can imagine the rapid

Gentlemen:
In 1897 I had a disease of the stomach
and bowels. Some physicians told me it was
Dyspepsia, some Consumption of the Limes,
others said consumption ol '.he Bowels. One
physician said 1 would not live until Spring,
end lor (our Ion? years I existed on a little
boiled milk, soda biscuits, doctors' prescrip
tions and Dyspepsia remedies that flooded
the market. I could not digest anything
I ate. and in the Spring 1902 I picked up
one of your Almanacs as a poor emaciated
Dyspepsia wreck will grasp at anything, and
that Almanae happened to be my life saver.
I bought a fifty cent bottle of KODOL DYS
PEPSIA CURB and the benefit I received
from that bottle ALL THE GOLD IN
GEORGIA COULD NOT BUY. I kept on
taking it and in two months I went back to
my work, as a machinist, and in three months
I was well and hearty. I still use a little oc
casionally as I find it a fine blood purifier
and a good tonic-
May you live long and prosper.
Yours very truly,
C. N. CORNELL.

A
SERIOUS
FAR-REACHING BLOOD DISORDER
Even in its early stages Catarrh is almost intolerable, caused by the
Btuffy feeling in the nose, the buzzing noises in the ears,, the continual
"hawking and spitting" difficult .breathing, etc. But when the blood
becomes thoroughly polluted from the catarrhal matter, the inflammation
extends to the bronchial tubes, causing hoarseness, and often an aggravating
cough ; the stomach is affected, resulting in dyspepsia, loss of appetite and
strength, and gradually all the mucous membranes of the body become dis
eased and the system upset and deranged. Frequently the kidneys and
bladder are attacked, and the constant passage of impure blood through the
lungs, diseases these important members, and Catarrh terminates in Con
sumption. Catarrh is a deep-seated blood disease, and must be treated con
stitutionally, for it is beyond the reach of local treatment. S. S. S. cures
Catarrh by cleansing the blood of all the impure catarrhal matter and at the.
same time building up the entire system. It goes down and attacks the
disease at its head, in the circulation, ana
removes every trace of the impurity that is
causing the trouble. Then as rich, pure
blood circulates through the body; the in
flamed membranes commence to heal, the
mucous discharges grow less and finally
cease, and all the disagreeable and disgusting
symptoms of Catarrh disappear. S.S. S. has
no equal as a cure for this disease. It refines and purifies the entire circulation;
and repairs the damage done by Catarrh. Special book on Catarrh and any
