The "wet or dry" question haa been a live issue for a long time in local affairs, and tho forces are well divided, both sides claiming a good working majority. The business men of the town, fearing that their Interests will suffer if the town goes dry, are en deavoring to efftict a compromise on a t.m Is of bign liuun.o tuia ttriut regula tion, but as yet nothing acceptable to the anti-saloon forcea haa been offered. tween now and the commencement of , to the State hospital. the extremely dry season. If this work receives the attention it should, hundreds of dangerous slashings can be burned without risk to green timber, and we can enter the fire sesson with one of our greatest menace, removed.

However, I cannot urge too strongly that you arrange for the burning of your slashings before this date, providing either conditions are favorable. Very truly yours, F. A. ELLIOTT, State Foreater.
