The attempt to assassinate King

forth many words of regret from his

President Roosevelt has promised
to make a better government for tho
people. Ho says that prices of com
moditles have risen more rapidly
than wages and that It Is the busi
ness of the government to reduce the
first without lowering the second. If
he will keep faith with this principle
and fight It out to the end, he will
have tho undivided support of the
masses. Hetter government is all that
Is wanted and this is one of tho ways
to get It.
what remained -of tho forests of India
and to repair the mischief of provlou9
neglect, oven at considerable ox
lonso." Dr. Hunter tells us that as soon as
the need or protection was recognized
the Indian government set nt once
nhout providing It. Something moro
than G.000.0 .o acres of existing forests
were reserved from settlement and
additions wore made to the area year
by year, so that by 1882 the reserva
tions amounted to moro than 12.00;
000 acres. Competent experts In for
estry were brought from Kuropo and
schools for Instruction In forestry
Of the results wo are told: "In 1872
the total forest revenuo was 477,
ooo, as compared with an expenditure
of C23B.O00. .thus showing a surplus
of .C 182,000. Hy 1878 tho revenue had
increased to 604.102. The forest
exorts of that year included teak,
valued at C 400,052; lac and lac dye,
C362.008; caoutchouc, 89.381. and
gums 18.'i,fi8i'." Dr. Hunter adds:
"These figures fall to exhibit the true
workings of the forest department,
which Is gradually wlni 'ng back for
India the fee simple of her forest
wealth when it was on tho point of
being squandered beyond the possi
bility of redemption."
Such is the teaching of India. It Is
lor the United States to heed the les
son and profit by it. We are now
squandering a richer forest inheri
tance than India ever had, and unless
we put a stop to the waste we shall
ere long find ourselves obliged to re
pair it at au enormoua cost. San

STAND PAT, JOHN MITCHELL.
While tho control of the trusts is
now agitating the leaders of the great
parties, tho people should show their
Interest In the subject by jabbing con
gressmen in tho ribs, occasionally.
The voice of indignation against the
unfair throttling of small concerns,
the arbitrary raising of prices on
every day necessities, and tho strang
ulation of small business enterprises
by the giant combines, should be so
strong that no man in public Ufa
would dare to ignore it. if tho entire
session of congress should be devot
ed to curing this evil the people
would de delighted.
An effort will bo made to reduce tho
rates on postage to foreign countries.
at the coming session of congress
Postmaster-General Payne will take
up the subject personally. The for
eign rate Is so much out of proportion
to domestic rates that much of tho
commercial business between this
and foreign countries is hampered by
the excessive costs of postage. For
eign-born citizens of this country will
rejoice to have a cheaper rate, as tho
lotter-wr.ting habit is ono of their
chief sources of pleasure, and the re
duction of tho rato to France. Ger

PROFITS OF FORESTRY.
From various European states
where comprehensive forestry Is prac
ticed the Call has from time to time
cited ofllclal reports of profitable re
sults. The story has been virtually
the same whether drawn from tho
experience of half-frozen Norway or
of Sunny Franco. In ovory Instanco
careful forest preservation has re
sulted not only in protecting the
woods and conserving tho slender
mountain streams that form tho
rivers but in yielding a good commer
cial profit as well.
In his work on "Tho Indian Em
pire," Dr. W. W. Hunter says: "Up
to 20 years ago tho destruction of for
ests by timber cutters, by charcoal
burners and abovo all by nomatic cul
tivation, was allowed to go on every
where unchecked Tho oxtension of
tillage was considered tho chief caro
of tho government, and no regard was
paid to tho Improvident waste of tho
woods and junglo on all sides: but
as tho pressure of population on tho
soil became greater and tho construc
tion of railways Increased tho demand
for fuol tho question of forest preser
vation forced Itself into notice.
It was recognized that tho inheri
tance of futuro generations was being
recklessly sacrificed. Tho Importance
of forests as affecting the general
meteorology of a country was also
being taught by bitter experience In
Europe On many grounds, there

Whatever you do, John Mitchell.

In millions of whispered prayers!
The lash of the strong is cruel
The path of tho poor is rough
The pangs of hunger are maddening,

Tj Some people begin
rfTfl to show age before
AaLLt the meridian of life
is reached, or they
have lived out half their days. They are
prematurely gray, haggard, and sickly,
and seldom free from an ache or pain of
Cold feet, chilly sensations, stiffness in
muscles aud joints, weak stomach and
poor digestion, lack of energy, and drows
iness, nervousness, etc, show that old age
lias been readied ahead o!
time. Bad blood and weak
circulation more often
produce these miserable
feelings and signs of de
cay than anything else.
An inherited taint or
poison of some descrip
tion is at work in the sys
tem, causing stagnation and a general
unhealthy condition of the blood; and
this, and not the weight of years, is draw
ing you down to an untimely old age and
making life a protracted torture.
For purifying the blood and toning up
the circulation nothing is equal to S. S. S.
It removes from the system all the waste
matter that has been accumulating for
years, and makes the blood rich and pure,
stimulates the appetite and digestion, and
invigorates the entire body.
S. S. S. is a purely vegetable remedy,
and the best purifier and tonic for old peo
ple, and thoe who are beginning to show
age because of the run down condition of
the blood. With rich, pure blood there is
no reason why old people should not ie-
