TREES ON NEBRASKA HILLS The Chicago Inter (Win call* attention to the I'nited State» gov. ernuient'a attempt to solve the »eriotte problem of forest destruction at.d which is being watched with the attention the importance of the experiment warrant«. It i.« pur- posed to grow new supplies not only on the cutover lands of tenions once timber« d but iu reg ns where there is nothing but open plain. l’erha|>s the tm>«t interest-rig feature of this large and varied undertaking is the attempt to cov er with forests the »«ml hill* of Western Nebraska—asermug im possibility. Two reserves hav e been create«! in the sand hill re gton—one between the 1» -n al and Loup rivers of btl.iHX) acres, and tin-other of 125.O00 acres between the Niobrara ami li e Snake rivers The experiment of the govern ment is based u|um the proposition th «t once this region w».- the lot tom of a sea at d tnat bereath these drifting sand« is a si. soil that re tains sufficient moisture to nourish certain kinds of pir.«-« which send their roots deep enough to tap the moisture contain« d in this* ,ub- stratum. Fjr a year or more the forestry bmeau has been studying tin se re serves. A nur-erv was establii-hed at Halsey in the va’ieyofthe Middle Loup river. Hr-e (AM) pounds of seed, principally w«-st ern yellow pine »nd red cedar and jack pine, was prepared for th« spring sowing. Various scatter»«! areas have now been sown ; later they will be united in one great forest. It is evident that this is a mar velous undertaking, jf this forest growing is successful it will change the face of these plains and the climatic conditions. If a man is a benefactor who makes two blades of grass grow where one grew be fore, what shall bw .-ai l of the gov ernment's work in making forests to grow where before w»« only- drifting ettnd'.’—The Dalles Chron icle. President Roosevelt during a short speech at Glenn’s Ferrv last week said : “No law that the wit of man ever devised can make or ever will n ake a foil wise, or n coward brave.or a weakling strong All that the law can do is to try to secure a fair deal, to try to give each man a chance to show tl • stuff that is in him . ai <1 if th- stuff is not in him you cannot get it out of him be«-ause it is not there.” D r . PIERCE^ FAVOR 5 TE PRESCRIPTION/ r CURES BACKACHE NERVOUSNESS HEADACHE AND TTMiiriin It is said that a new danger to sheep herds in Montana has Ix-en discovered in alfalfa. It has Veen found that this forage, aft«r being frozen, has been shown to produce many «hath» a few hours after eat en, ami all doubt of its having been the cause was removed by ex amination of the stomachs immed iately after death. in every in stance it was found that the alfalfa caked as soon as it entered the stomach and exuded a lluid poisonous in its nature. This lluid choked the sneep liefore they eould expel it. As sheep-raising is one of the principal industries of the state, the danger thus presented arouses universal interest am) a search is being made for some method of neutralizing the chemi cal action which extreme cold s«ems to hereupon a product which enters so largely into the range- food of that state.—Baker Citv ' Democrat. Dean Holcate. of th«- Nortewest- ern I'niversity, is evidently a lx- liever in the strenous life. In a speech to the students of Evanston a' c-.-mm« necmeut he said : "You are going out in the world to work There will be no union to tell you not to work mo:«- than eight hours a day. You w ill come nearer work ing eighteen hours out of twenty- four, Some of you will get buried in your work. Rut keep at it, re membering the responsibility rest ing upon you to do good work, and you will have vour rward.” The gospel of work is here full recog nized and honored. Not th«- man who regulates his working hours byithe clock, bnt he who mersures them by the requirements of his vocations and his ability, will mount the ladder of achievement— Oregonian. This nugget of wisdom is from the president’s speech at Boise: ‘ The forests ami the grasses are not to be treated as we properly treat mining—that is, as material t«> be use 1 up an«i nothing left behind. We must recognize the fact that we have passed the stage when we can fcflord tn tolerate I he m.n whose object is simplv to skin the land ' and get out. We must handle the wood, the water, the grasses so that we may hand thun on to our children and children’s children in better and not worse shape than we got them.” Merger or no merger, big mills or little, blankets or goods in the piece. Oregon produces the b-st woolens in the world. AVe have the best wool, the liest water for scouring it. the capital, the men, the machinery ami the energy. This is an industry that needs the fostering care of no trust.—On-gon- 'am WHO PAYS THE FREIGHT? Who pays the expense of the President's junketing trip?— Ex. It is a stocky built man with a ratty mu-tache, a front of double pica teeth; and a j-vw set with a Yale time lock; a man rather be low medium height, incline«! to be pu«»y, with a nose that needs a compositor—man named Roo-e- velt—T. Roosevelt to be accurate He is the first President of the I ni ted S'ates in recent years who ha« refused all courtesies fiom th«- railroads and pays his own way, and bv the same token he is tire first President in recent years, whom the railroads are going to fight.—Boise Clipper.
