f. rMa!Tnrd, head of hr 1'nivcrsity of
Orf-iron department of chemistry, who
has prepared a paper on "Vtilixaticn
of Timber." I'rof Stafford has made
a closa study of th tin.her rsourcs
sir.ee ha h-tna the work that lead to
the succe.nlul dc-velopmer.t of th
Stafford profess for wood distillation.
There are people now living, saj-s
Prof. Stafford, who will see a com
plete dearth of commercial timber
in ti.ii country unless condition! ef
fecting promth and consumption
"The oricina! forest area of the
llrited States was something near a
niilioii acres," writes Prof. Stafford.
"It is now less than half that. Wa
had in early times five trillion board
feet of timber: the present residue is
perhaps two trillion. By far the
larper part of the missing three tril
lion units hat been removed in very
recent yer. The rate of increment
of American forests is estimated as
only one third that in Europe and we
are using trees three times 'as fast
as they grow. Our per capita con
sumption of timber is eight times as
great as that of the European. We
are using more than twice as much
wood per person as we did fifty years
ago. Approximately fifty billion board
feet of lumber will be cut in the Uni
ted States the present year, in or
der to obtain the total of wood sub
stance drawn from our forests there
must be added to the above figure
the amounts of wood used for pur
poses other than lumber manufacture
and this brings the grand total up to
the incomprehensible sum of three
hundred billion board feet equivalent.
"This quantity of wood substance
is the same as 25 billion cubic feet
or near five million miles. The an
nual forest harvest of the United
States in other words, would suffice
for the construction of a solid timber
roadway a foot thick and 20 feet
wide entirely around the earth at
the equator. Of all the products of
life action that good Mother Nature
brings forth in this world of our
wood substance is the most lavishly
supplied; yet our needs ar rapidly
forging ahead of this supply.
"About one half of the present
standing timber in these United
States is in the Pacific Northwest.
Heading the list of available species
is our own splendid Douglas fir.
Southern pine stands second in the
list, although very nearly equaled in
quantity by Western yellow pine. It
is obvious from these statements that
this section of ths country must play
a very important part in tha futura
of a key industry whlck inevitably
must advance rapidly to proportions
of collossal magnitude. Tha neat fif
ty years of history in the lumber in
dustry will see the cashing in of re
sources which have been accumulating
in Oregon for a period reaching far
back beyond its settlement and pos
session by white men."

ONSIDER the squirrel, Ohy my son,
and be wise. For when the sun shines,
then doth he gather the fruit of the
nut trees. But when the trees cease
to bear fruit and snow covers the ground, then
doth the squirrel feast on the nuts he hath stor
ed against the cold days.
If thou would be wise and farseeing, get thy
self a Bank Book and use it frequently. Be pre
pared for the Rainy Day; for when it rains it
doth pour. But thy Bank Book will protect thee
and thou will be blest amongst men.
