The Mexicans appear to have
united in a.demand to restore the
governmental policies of Madero,
and President Wilson has told the
bluffers to “ do it now,” intimating
that in case of delay, that he will
take a baud in affairs Heretofore
any pressure from Washington has'
provoked angry retorts— but this
time the Mexicans have all respond­
ed in sweet and lovely phrases
Just what President Wilson pro-
proses to do in Mexico is not clear,
but it is certain that he has worked
out a definite policy that will call
for drastic interference in the affairs
of the alleged Republic at our
southern border.

why Germany and England have

our national diffidence and learning
to talk to them face to face, we let

best interest to locate.
Mr. Donk is also investigating
the possibilities of hardwood on his
tiip to the coast. 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.
