Farm hours wore long and hard,
not only for the fanners them
selves and their wives, but also
for the children who were old
enough to perform tho simplest
kinds of labor. The schools
wore small, ungraded, and poor,
ill-adapted to tho uocds of tho
people. Even the rural churches,
whoro there were any, wore un
Insplrntionnl, and offered Utile
relief from tho monotony of
country life. In a word, tho llfo
of the farmer was characterized
by constant, extreme physical
drudgery, and by Isolation and

the greater opportunities for ad

In tho National Forest Man

"all uses of National Forest
lands" anil resources permitted
by the Secretary of Agriculture,
except thoBo specifically provid

water powor, timber sales, tim

special uses aro many and var

such uses as boat-landings, resi
dences, log chutes, railroads,
dams, telephones, wagon roads,
dairies, camp sites, tlumcs, dit
ches, stores, schools, churches,
hotels, corrals, cabins, and tho
like. In the forests of Washing

unusual In nature, a water
trolley on the Chelan Forest, an
apiary on the Olympic, a IIbIi

are still dlfferont.-a slaughter

i the area used not to exceed f

this act, permits of this nature
wore Issued but were revocable
at tho discretion of the depart
