It is said that the land necde'd can bc j purchased for from $2 to $3 per acre, j and that in the Southern Appalachian ' Mountains there is a greater variety of I hardwood trees than in any other terri ! tory of like size in the Eastern States. j It is also stated that this region has the highest and largest mountains cast of thc Mississippi, the heaviest rainfall on thc continent except along the Northern Pa? cific Coast, and that tlie washing away of j the soils can be prevented only by kcep j ing them covered with forests. "The absence from this region of lakes i and gravelly soils, such as abound in thc j Northern States and there serve to store ; the rains and give uniformity to thc Bow j of streams," the report continues, "ren ! ders thc perpetuation of those Southern i forests absolutely necessary for the pro? tection of both thc soils and thc streams."

A Venezuelan plant, for which is claimed wonderful curative powers in cases of leprosy, has been called to the attention of the Secretary of Agricul? ture and sent to Hawaii for cultivation j and experimentation.

Some of these shrubs were received here some time ago, and it was claimed for them that they would effect a cure of that dread and supposed-to-be incur? able disease. Some of them were sent to Hawaii to be experimented with and some were kept at the Department for examination. The Secretary says the investigation has not been abandoned, and the experiments will continue until the merits of thc shrub are fully tested. Roosevelt Is Left Out. The President has approved, with one notable exception, all the recom? mendations made by the Army Brevet Board, of which General MacArthur was president, for thc bestowal of brevet rank on all the officers of the army who rendered especially meritorious services during the war with Spain and in the subsequent campaigns in the Philippines and China. The exception noted is the case of Theodore Roosevelt, who was awarded thc brevets of colonel and brigadier general for distinguished services at San Juan. Santiago. LTnder the law these brevets require the confirmation of thc Senate, and thc nominations have been made out for transmission to that body, but, as already stated, the list will not contain the name of the President. Appropriations for the Departments. The House passed the legislative, ex? ecutive and judicial appropriation bill, the second of the regular supply bills. As passed it carries $25,171,069, which is $503,721 in excess of the current law. Only two amendment's of importance were adopted. One provides for a com? mission to redistrict the legislative dis? tricts of Oklahoma, and the other au? thorizes the President, in his discre? tion, to cover into the civil service the temporary clerical force employed on account of thc war with Spain. There arc about 1.250 of these clerks still in thc service. By the terms of the amendment the President must place all or none of them under the civil service. The Official Reception Committee. Assistant Secretary of State Hill, Ad? jutant-General Corbin and Rear-Admi? ral Evans have been officially desig? nated as "the President's delegates for thc reception and entertainment of H. R. H.

This is very true?No. 305, and drove it also. "A great change is announced in the sporting world. Powder is utterly out of fashion, and a gentleman would scorn to knock down a partridge with anything but an air gun, always ex? cepting the long bow, with which so many of our best shots kill their game. "Among the lay sportsmen the con? test lies, who shall kill the most head of game, but your sporting parsons think notning of one another till they have had a shot at the squire. "An odd circumstance occurred the otho/ day in-church, in Leicesi tershire.

"I am one of the very few persons who ever saw a locomotive blow up," remarked an old railroad man to a reporter of the Baltimore Sun the other day. "Generally the men who witness the explosion of a steam engine are so dead when the smoke has cleared away that they are never able to give an account of the disaster. "Like many other accidents, the one I saw was the result of carelessness low water in the boiler, for the engine had just come from the shops and was in complete repair. It was on the Bal? timore and Ohio railroad in West Vir? ginia a number of years ago.

Thc child was put to bed every night at 6. We dined at 7. I was sit? ting in the drawing-room one evening before dinner. The room was dark, the doors open, and my seat commanded a view of both the stairway and the din? ing-room. The table was set, and in the center was a dish of tempting peaches. Presently there came to my ears tho patter of little bare feet, and a child? ish figure, clad in a night gown, stole :lov/n the stairs, through the hall, into thc dining-room, up to the table. ?5mall fingers seized the topmost peach from the dish and the little fellow turned and trotted away upstairs again. As I sat in the dark, in an agony of ipprehension, there came again thc patter, patter ef little feet, and a ,vhite-clad figure stole down thc stairs, ;hiough the hall, into the dining-room, ip to the table.
