I would suggest studying the lang uage loo, so you cau trade direct with our merchants At present you have to use a sort ot middle man— comprador, we call him. He is the go-between, and he makes money both ways, from us aud from you.” Perhaps the Chinaman is not as stupid as a citizen of the United states might suppose Anyhow, he has tipped off the principal reason why Germany and England have “ gobbled” the world’s foreign com merer. We do not study our tor eign customers. We take a chance of their liking what we make rather than make what they unquestion ably want. Instead of overcoming our national diffidence and learning to talk to them face to face, we let professional exploiters take their orders and place our goods—the surest way to start misunderstand ing and lose business. The resignation of Mr. Biyau came to the country like a bolt out of a clear sky. And Washington itself was hardly prepared for what happened, though for several days the best informed public men con fided “ that they did not see how Mr. Brvan could sign the Piesi- dent’s note to Germany.” The luture of the Democratic party, now facing new conditions, is of the ut most concern to thecoumry. With Mr. Bryan on the outside the op position to President Wilson » ill no longer seek to hide itself. Bryan is a spectacular figure in the eyes of the world today— and no man can foretell how future events may- shape, or revolve around h i s star of destiny. His enemies hope that he will be a “dead one,” bui they know he never will be. From a political standpoint the tejoicing is 1 mong the Republicans As to how Bryan’s resignation will affect the nation and its affairs, only time can decide.

The by-products of hardwood are recoge, charcoal, wood alcohol and other useful arti cles of commerce. "While the conversion of wood waste into commercial products has not yet been carried on to any great extent” said Mr. Donk. “ but prob ably within ten years from now it will be entirely different. The gov ernment is making great progress in its experiments and they may re sult in complete success. The con version and utilizatira of wood in the forest is the lar^fc and unsolved problem of conservation and the government is spending a great deal upon it.’’ One of the possibilities of the utilization of the cedar turpentine is as a moth preventative. Cedar wood is recognized as moth proof and it is reasoned that if the interior of closets was painted with the tur pentine once in a while it would serve the same purpose as it the closet were of cedar protecting the goods inclosed therein. LIBERTY BELL IS COMING Extraordinary Precaution* to be Taken for Its Safety The Southern Pacific Company has handled many shipments of ex traordinary valuesince the last spike was driven in its trancontinental line in 1869, but none quite so v .1- ttable as the Liberty Bell, which it will bring into California and to the Panama-Pacific International at San Francisco next month. Conse quently the most elaborate precau tions are being taken to insure the sale transportation of the priceless relic. The bell will be handled on a special train It wilfDe u juer guard every moment from the time it leaves Philadelphia until it is re turned there. It will be carried on a special gondola freight c a r . equipped with all the safety appli ances necessary to enable it to be moved in a passenger train. The gondola will occupy the same posi tion as an observation car, at the end of the train,that the residents of the cities and towns through which it passes may view the bell.

The amount of turpentine in the cedar is so great that it affects the water of the lumber camps where it grows and some can not drink the water. For a number ot years the gov ernment has teen experimenting to determine the value ol wood waste and has conducted experiments iu a number of places with excellent results. North Carolina is at present the one great source of turpentine in this country, the resinous pine of that state being unusually rich in turpentine, and allied products. For three years the government leased a distilling camp in that state and conducted experiments A carload of Douglas fir from Or egon was submitted to them for distillation but did not yield good results.
