The Chicago Inter (Win call*

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

jack pine, was prepared for th«

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

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
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
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 '
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—
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-
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.
