And the water has no equal; You can travel the state through and through; It has no sulphur odor, And it's very healthful, too. And the people are so friendly, Makes one feel just like at home They tell you to help yourself to the oranges, Just as it they were your own. HEAL MAGIC OREGON GIRL INS THE CONTEST PRIZE We hope all those people residing in Lakeland who have been saying that they were not enumerated, and who ''know hundreds of others'' who were riot counted, will report these omissions now, when reporting will do some good. Some of them, how ever, will wait until the matter is finally closed, reserving their kicks until then. o- Of course every one to his notion, Each of us know where we would rather be; But Lakeland, dear old Lakeland, Is the ideal place for me.

At this period of waste and extrav agance there is nothing, of course .that can be said and done by those who deplore it that will have much - '.effect in lessening it. At the sama time we cannot refrain from express ing regret at one kind of waste that seems prevalent all over the country ' the wanton waste of our timber re I Bources. We see it in every cypress IBwamp and pine forest in Florida, and In the mountains of North Carolina; and we know of it in every section of the United States. And never a i thought of replacement or of the day I rot far distant when the world must i face a timber famine.
