Pinchot Ready to Branch Out
From Forestry Service.
TAFT WILL FIND BERTH
Rumored Forester Will B Placed
at Head of National Conservation
Commission, Giving Broader
Scope for Ills Abilities.
OREGONIAN' NEWS BI'REAU. Wash
ington. Nov. 10. It U rumored In Gov-ernrat-nt
circles In Washington that
GIITord Pinchot will not remain- at the
head of the Korest Service, but will
voluntarily reliquish that office to take
up a more Important position under
the next Administration. As to what
will he .mc for Mr. Pinchot. reports
do not agree; by some it Is believed he
will become Secretary of Agriculture.
Ivut by others who are closer to the
Forester. It Is believed that he will be
placed In entire charge of the National
Conservation Commission, created by
President Roosevelt, provided Congress
ran be persuaded to make adequate
impropriation for the maintenance of
Mr. Taft Is as fully awake to the
necessity of perpetuating the natural
resources of the country as Is Presi
ded Roosevelt, and it Is said, on good
authority, that If Congress docs not
provide for the Conservation Commis
sion at the coming short session. Mr.
Tat will renew the recommendations
of President Roosevelt when his own
Commission Is Needed.
It is not essential that the name
"Conservation Commission' should be
preservei!. but Mr. Taft. like the Presi
dent, believes that some . authorised
Government body should be detailed to
study this problem, and recommend to
Congress such action as It may find
necessary. If Congress will act. It Is
understood that Mr. Pinchot will be
placed in charge of the work by Presi
dent Taft If President Roosevelt does
not do It.
As to the Forest Service, Mr. Pinchot
Is aware tr.at the Government's policy
la now firmly established; forestry has
come to slay, and th system now In
vogue needs only modification, as Its
weaknesses are developed, to bring it
up to the standard which prevails in
the older nations of Europe. In other
words, the hard part of the work of
establishing the forestry policy and the
Forest Service, together with the crea
tion of reserves, has been accom
plished; it now remains to knock off
the rough eoges. and get the machine
into smooth running order. This can
be brought about by a competent,
level-headed man. and Mr. Pinchot, It
Is said, feels satisfied that the work
ran safely bo entrusted to other hands.
He himself would like, to broade
put Into a wider field, where he could
devote his time and energies to other
problems than forestry. That has so
far been his life work, hut he realizes,
as does the President, that It Is essen
tial to preserve other resources than
timber, and the work of formulating a
general conservation policy would fol
low the lines laid down In the develop
ment of our forestry system.
Helng a man of tireless energv and
unbounded enthusiasm. Mr. pinchot
natura'ly aspires to take on larger and
more Important duties than those he
lias heretofore discharged, and It Is
said that his ambition meets with the
approval of Mr. Taft. and that it will
be gratified If Congress will but open
.Meantime, Mr. Pinchot will continue
at the head of the Forest Service, and
devote such time as lie can spare to
the Conservation Commission, of m-hlch
be Is now head by designation of the
President, though he tills the position
without pay. Congress having so fnr
failed either to recognise the body as
oftlclal, or contribute toward paying Its
PORTABLE GAS TANKS
Interesting Illuminating Method Pe
lniereMln; Illumlna-iing Method De-
Althoiifch electricity is an easy and com
paratively economical tn-ethod of illumina
tion, it cannot be applied to isolated
country houses, nor adapted to the re
quirements of pparaely populated rural
districts. For t bis reason a recent de-v-lopmppt
of gas lighting, by which the
Illumtnatinc material 1m distributed In
port aide cylinders, should commend itself
to thoe Americans who wish to live "far
from the maddening crowd" without sur
rendering any of the comforts or necessi
ties of life in a great city.
The new gas has been Invented by
Hermann llau. a lie r man chemist, and
Is distilled from oil and other materlaLs.
New and novel lines are followed In the
manufacture of Herr Blnu's lUuminant.
Tne oil is fed into the retort and dis
t:lld at a lower temperature than that
employed in the production of coal gas.
Tlie by-products are then secured, and
the gas cleaned in the usual manner. It
Is then compressed in cylinders similar
to those employed for the transportation
of oygvn, the effect of this pressure
being a liquefaction of the gases. The
permanent gases which the distillation
has y .dried are hydrogen, methane and
carbon monoxide. These, the chlf con
stituents of coal gas, are then dissolved
to the required extent In the liquid gases.
When the pressure Is relieved the liquid
volatilises, carrying off a certain propor
tion of the gases which were dissolved.
The light obtained is of great brlilinncy.
while the gas is perfectly pure and harm
less. The cylinders are of varying length
and capacity, and it Is possible to secure
a small vessel holding only one pound of
gns suitable for traveling, boating' or
oamping-our. expeditions, up to large
reservoirs containing heavy supplies suit
able for e x tr nsl ve conn t ry sea t s.
The medium size, adapted for use In
small villas, will supply enough gas to
meet all ordinary requirements for at
hast eight weeks. All that it is neces
sary to do Is to install t!i charged cyl
inder in the receptacle supplied for the
purpose outside the building, connect it
with a small tank in which the pressure
Is regulated, and then admit It to the
ordinary piping system of the house.
When a cylinder Is exhausted it can
be easl'.y and quickly disconnected and
replaced by a full vessel the empty one
being returned to the works for a fresh
charge of gas. There is no possibility
of explosion in handling Herr Blau's
gas. and no technical knowledge is re
quired for Us manipulation. In Ger
many several small villages are being
lighted upon this system. The distrib
uting mains are laid In the usual man
ner, though small pipe need only be
used, and are connected with a small
house or hut In which the g:is cylinders
are placed. The only attention required
la the chancing of the cylinders as tliey
become exhausted. The system Is cheap,
nighty efficient, and free from danger,
and even the smallest village can be
come, possessed of a gas-distribution plant
at a nominal outlay. Although the gen
eral methods ot producing the new gas

Potash for Snake Bite.
Times of India.
According; to the "snake" statistics
for 1907 the total mortality among hu
man beina-s caused by snake bites fell
from 22,811 in 190 to 31.418 In 1907.
So low a figure has not been reached
since 1S97. The decrease is noticeaui
mainly in Bengal and Eastern Benjral
and Assam, where the figures fell
from 8862 and 27SO in 1906. to 8276
and 1900. respectively, in 1907. The
most important increase occurred In
Madras and Burma, where the figures
rose from 1527 and 1149 In 19u6 to
1377 and 1848. respectively. The de
crease in Kaatern Bengal and Assam
is attributed to the floods having been
lower. The Central Provinces figure
1396) la the lowest returned In any
one of the last seven years. The
bites by incision and application of
permanganate of potash and the dis
tribution of lancets continues. It is
too early yet to pronounce with any
certainty as to the result of the ex
periment, but a number of favorite
reports have been received. Eight
cases are reported from the United
Provinces of the successful use of Dr.
Calraette's anti-venene. In two of
these cases the permanence of potash
treatment was also employed.
How to Waterproof Matches
Perhaps some of your readers would
be interested to know that I have
found a simple, inexpensive way to
waterproof matches. Into some melt
ed paraffine (care being taken that It
was as cool as possible) I dipped a
few ordinary parlor matches. After
withdrawing; them and allowing; them
to cool It was found that they
scratched almost as easily as before
being coated with the wax. Several
were held under water for six or seven
hours and all of them lighted as eas
ily as before Immersion. When the
match Is scratched the paraffin Is first
rubbed off and the match lights in the
usual way. Matches treated as above
would be very useful on camping or
canoeing- trips, as they do not absorb
moisture. Since more rubbing is re
quired to light them thanthe ordinary
match it would be practically impos
sible to set them on fire by accidental
Motoring Lessens Billiards.
Are billiards dying out and are motor
ing and golf killing them? In 2594 the
French treasury returns noted 96,OoO bil
liard tables In the country- This year
the figure is only 89.0UU. The treasury
laments the fact, not only from any dis
interested love for the grand old game,
but because every billiard table pays
a heavy tax. Motoring, of course, con
tributes Its full share to the Inland reve
nue here as well as elsewhere, but so
far the royal and ancient pastime,
which is quite new here, pays nothing
to the state. However, that may come
In due course, and golf clubs, balls, cad
dies and links may be taxed to make up
for the shrinkage In billiard tables.
Question of Relative Merit.
A little boy of eight, attending school
away from home, wrote a letter to his
sister, from which the following; ex
tract Is taken:
"We bad a spelling match In school
todny and I spelled all the boys down
and won the Meddle."
