SCARCIJ Ysf TIMBER
In response 'to a resolution intro
duced by Senator Capper, of Kansas,
and passed during the last days of
the recent session of congress. Sec
retary, of Agriculture Meredith, in
transmitting a repor tot the forest
service upon timber depletion, attrib
uted the high cost of lumber and of
newsprint to the using up of the for
ests east of. the Great Plains. In
part we are suffering from the after
effects made during the late war' to
conserve the timber supply for the
purposes of our military and naval
establishments. But the cause date
are necessarily destroyed in the
clearing of lands. ,But these are
uses referred to by the secretary
when he says that
: "Timber depletion has not resulted
from the use of our forests, but from
their devastation. There are 463,000,
000 acres of forest lands of all classes
in the United States, including
burned, culled, and cutover. Of this
amount 81,000,000 acres is an unpro
ductive waste. Upon enormous addi
tional areas the growth is so small
in amount or of such inferior charac
ten. that, its economic value -is negli
back of the war many years back. J gible. ,. These forest lands will pro-
it was not the excessive use of timber duce the timber required by the coun
in constructins encamnmentn nnri
vessels, but the reckless destruction
of trees through many years that is
responsible for 'the present high
prices and scarcity of timber that,
together with high wages, is tying
the hands of many who wish to build
homes for uor ever-increasing popu
lation. That waste contlnnon
There is an ancent proverb that
runs "Whom the gods would destroy
they first make mad." There is mad
ness in our reckless waste of our
timber resources and in the present
disregard of warnings as to the in
evitable consequence. We are still,
in this country, using timber four
times as fast as we are growing it
Nearly two-thirds of the ' timber left
is west of the Great' Plains,, whence
it must be brought to the ports east
of the plains at great . expense for
transportation. The freight blls on
the average thousand feet of lumber
are rising steadily. Southern Dinn
has risen in less than fifteen years
from $25 to $35 a thousand feet to
$80 and $85.
Trees cut down ior
try if they are kept at work full time
growing tres. But unless timber
growth takes th place of devastation
from forest fires and destructive
methods of cutting, our consumption
of plumber must drop to the level of
European countries, where wild is an
imported luxury."
Some of the forest fire's are pre
ventable. The Forest Service has
done beneficial work in conserving
the wealth of the country in recent
years by preventing or checking for
est fires.. This is on of the sub-de
partments of the national governmnt
which has been crippled by the
"pennyrwise, poundfolish" policy of
congress in cutting down the appro
priation for continuing the activities
of. the United States department of
agriculture.
. The remedy is a national policy
of reforestration, in cooperation with
the states, if possible. The need of
reforestration may be disrerarrlrl
now,, but the 'country will pay for such
neglect at a Jtreatlv increnanA rata
jof interest in the future. It is pay

If our fellow winter townsman
were any less personage than he is,
it might be remarked that he has his
nerve with him at the San Francisco
convention. .. :
He announced,, has announced sev
eral times, that he was going to the
convention to see to it that that body
endorses this and that thing in which
ne is interested. He made his state
ment in the manner of a man who
thinks he' has the power to compel
the convention to perorm as he wants
it to. "
Mr. Bryan is going to have a "dry"
plank in the platform. .That is what
he says, and the most recent informa
tion is' that he is.sb; welding his
forces that he will make the conven
tion eat out of his hand, on that par
ticular plank, j .
He says that if the "wets" secure
the adoption of a plank advocating
the reformation or amendment of the
Volstead law, in . the committee's re
port he" will take the matter to the
floor of the convention and that he
will compel not only a roll call of the
states but a recorded vote from ev
ery delegate, a" rather unusual pro
ceeding. '
But It would be the same kind of
backfire t ahtpractesenetoainsrhduln
lution for the eighteenthNamendment
over In congress. There the con
gressmen were threatened with a
backfire In their home districts un
less they voted in accordance with
the behests of Uhe Anti-Saloon
League. The threat was - sufficient,
and timid congressmen and senators
fel lover themselves in voting as they
were ordered. .
Mr. Bryan is shrewd enough to
know that by his threat he can com
pel compliance with his wishes. The
delegate who attends the convention
ho matter what his personal ideas
may be on the subject of the Volstead
law, will not care to o on ramra
favoring a change in the law when
his act will subject, him to the vin
dictive criticism of the ultra days in
his home state and community.
Hence they will head off the individ
ual roll call by agreeing to the terms
of the advocate of the dry, plank be
fore the vote is taken. (
' . It is one of the humors of the situ
ation that so much fuss is made over,
a matter that is really settled and
settled by the highest authority in
the country, but still has enough kick
in it to imperil the political chances
of any man who goes on record as
not favoring further action in the
way of political declarations in favor
of a law already being enforced with
all the power and ingenuity of the
government It Is to laugh.-Miami

Suffering From Indigestion And Af

"I had about decided there wa8 no
use ta keep on trying to get any bet
ter but, it's a fact, in, one month's
time Tanlac has made me a well and
strong man," was the statement made
recently by George Z. Walker, Hills
boro Hotel, Tampa, Florida, a popular
real estate salesman.
"Six months ago while in Rich
mond, Virginia," continued Mr.,
Walker, "I had a severe attack of
the 'flu," and it left me in a weak, i
run-down condition, with my stomach
badly disordered. My appetite left me
and I ate so little I wasn't able tc I
get back my strengtgh. I often hadl
severe attacks of indigestion and had '
pains and cramps in my stomach that
nearly drew me double. I tried liv
ing entirely on raw eggs and milk and
light things like that but instead of!
getting better I was growing worse
all the time. . Blinrtin. t i
sometimes came on me and jj
ws i u a oiten nan terrible
sweats. I was under constant
iucuw bum oycui. jots or money
