aud is such a threadbare idea
that a discussion of its merits or
demerits is not worth while.
Reciprocity will not "make
good" when put to a practical
test for the simple reason that at
some stage of proceedings cer
tain domestic interests must be
sacrificed. An American must
now and then be slaughtered
that the German or the French
man, or some other man, may be
given his opportunity,
Protection of Americans is
what we one and all desire not
their slaughter that the interests
of any foreign people may be
served. A protective policy
comes nearer the requirements
along broad lines than any other
doctrine of government ever
given a practical test. The mat
ter of tariff revision is of great
interest, but should be approach
ed with fear and trembling, '' No
doubt the schedule needs revision
and a little re-touching here and
there, and what is needed will
be done in due season. We
"stand pat" as it is, but when
ever revision becomes doubly
necessary in order to head off
some monopolistic swindling
game, we stand "patter" still
UMBER OF NORTHWEST.
Oregon has ever been noted
for her fine timber. It has
amazed the world on more than
one occasion and will continue to
do so for years to come, but that
it will supply the needs of the
people of the United States for
the next 200 years as has been
asserted is a matter of grave
doubt. Two hundred years is
quite a little while and at the
rate it is being put under the
saw and ax, destroyed by fire,
etc., one is justified in the belief
that 200 years will see the tim
ber of Oregon pretty " well ex
hausted. There seems to be absolutely
no protection for the timber.
While it belongs to the whole
people almost as a gift of Deity, it
is being gobbled up at an amaz
ing rate by timber speculators,
and with very little restriction
it is one 01 the natural sources
of wealth that is not safe-guard
ed as it should be. There is too
much of the idea that Oregon's
timber belt is inexaustible. Such
views belong not only to Ore
gonians, but seem shared by
visitors to a considerable extent,
The following from a resident of
the Gulf Coast is worth reading,
as it shows both the wonder our
large timber inspires and the
idea prevailing as regards the
vastness of our forests:
We have seen the continuous
woods where rolls the Oregon,"
and the big trees we have seen
in the great Northwest have
completely swept away all the
notions we ever had of what bier
timber really is," said a member
of the Gulf Coast delegation to
the Hoo Hoo convention at the
Poitij.iid last evening.
"We of the Gulf Coast have
all our lives hugged the delusion
that in the belt of long-leaf yel
low pine that skirts the coast for
a distance inland of about 100
miles all the way . from Corpus
Christi, Texas, to the Virginia
borrJrr, we had timber that was
timber. But wc were mistaken,
The trees down there that count
ed a big with us wore merely
'reeds shaken by the wind' as
compared with the forest mons
ters of the Puget Sound and
Columbia River country, whose
tops go up a distance of 2C0 or
300 feet into tiio air, and out of
whose smtrle trunks r.Vinnsanrls
of feet of lumber can be made,
jjown in our lumber camps a
log 40 feet long is something un
usually big. Here it seems that
logs of 100 feet or more in length (

have no machinery that would
begin to handle timber of the
size you are cutting here the
year around. You have timber
here for all the needs of the peo
ple of the United States for the
next 200 years. Then the people
this region will be cutting
a second growth of timber the
equal in size of anything we have
now in the virgin woods of the
The First Cotton Mill.
.From the first co;ton mill in
America to a 20th century model
machinery shop marks the in
dustrial evolution in the citv of
Beverly. The first cotton mill
was established in 1786, the
Cabots, Beverly merchants, aDd
Capt. Moses Brown being among
the leading promoters. The
state then allowed the projectors
to run a lottery to help raise
tunds tor tne mill, it being re
garded as sm institution for the
public welfare, as it would give
employment to many. The mill
was driven by horse power.
which is quite in contrast to the
new million-dollar plant which is
to be operated bv electricity. To
drive the new plant electricity
will be generated through tur
bines connected with two boilers.
aggregating 700 horse power.
This great contrast must appeal
more or less to the imagination
of the citLens, and inspire them
them with a hope of future great
ness. Before the installation of
this plant the city was making
some strides forward in the race
for industrial honors, but it was
also a matter f prime necessity
to cater to the colony along the
North Shore, and this part of the
city's resources was almost as
great as its industrial class. Now
all is changed. The cottagers
are relatively unimportant, and
when Beverly is referred to in
the future, it must be spoken of
as a city of business importance.
We believe that it wiil outstrip
its neighbor on the other side of
the harbor in a few decades. Ex.
James G; Holmes, of Macon,
Ga., in the Scientific American,
As you gave place to articles
on lunar rainbows in several is
sues of late, and in that of the
26th inst, now before me, I infer
tney are inirequet, and may
continue to interest our readers.
Charleston, S. C, my home, is
so near the Gulf Stream that we
have ascribed our notably beau
tiful sunsets to the atmosphere
thereby produced. The same
cause may account for , the fre
quency of the solar rainbows, and
the not infrequent, but seldom
noticed, lunar rainbows. Al
though my home looked into the
Atlantic Ocean, across the filteen
square miles of water forming
Charleston's beautiful harbor,
therefore I seldom had the west
eru skies under observation at
the lunar rainbow (full moon)
period or the day, yet I recall
many luna- rainbows during the
half century since I was an ob
servant ooy, ana it memory
serves me, one double lunar ram
bow.' But the most perfect of
these bows that I recall I saw on
the edge of the Darlington, S. C.
a beautiful town in east mid
dle South Carolina in 1891. I
was in a road leading north,
with extensive fields east and
west, and hence ?ry opportunity.
The full moon had just risen
above the tops of the distant
woois, and the bew in the west
was perfect. The span ot the
bow was materially less than the
span of a sun rainbow, but its
depth or thickness, was propor
tionally much greater. The
rainbow colors were distinct but
pale, as if the arch were built of
pale mother-of-pearl, and they
changed and faded less rapidly
than the sun rainbows I have
seen. In 1863, when in camp
on John's Island, S. C, I saw a
brilliant sun rainbow with one
foot of the arch so near we could
stand on it, or pass - behind and
