Conference IT on Bulgaria With Other i N Powers 1r gLondon Oct 13M jswolsky the Russian foreign minis r has suc ceeded in impressing upon Sir ward Grey the British secretary of foreign affairs the nece ssity that not only should a conlerenc j of the pow i 7ers be held to settle th4 crisis in the t near east but that ti4s conference should take under advisement other questions besides in the annexation by Austria of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the declaration of Bulgarian independence This change of front ton the part of Great Britain which has caused treat surprise was announced by the foreign office at the conclusion ota long conference between Sir Edward Grey and K Iswolsky after a meet ft ring of the cabinet in the morning at posttviews of the Russian foreign minis ier Sir Edwards secretary in mak c ing the announcement said It may be affirmed with certainty r ihat both ministers concur in the ne essity for a conference and that the pourparlers at the foreign office following as they do on the FrancoRus y sian negotiations on the same Subject have smoothed away some of the difficulties which were in the wayj It Is now regarded as probable that the latest events in the near east also necessitate the enlarging of the scope of the questions to be discussed at the conferenceFurther than this nothing could be ascertained officially as to the ques tions M Iswolsky desires to include i In fact it is doubtful if it has been decided what shall be taken up in ad t dition to the two actions which brought about the crisis for it was intimated that the pourparlers at the British foreign office have not yet teen concluded and may continue for everal days 31 Iswplskyinteide1 toka Toy Parrson WfecdlY our ne said that his departure would not DO possible until Thursday and that ne might remain in London even longer than that It is doubted whether Russia is anx ious to reopen tbs Dardaneles for the present for if this Is done it must be for all nations and Russia is not like Ty to desire that while her fleet is so weak Besides other treaties in ad dition to the treaty of Berlin would be involved The only point In her previous stand Great Britain IB continuing to insist upon apparently Is that no mod ification of a treaty can be permitted without the consent of all parties to that treaty and at her proposal the powers have instructed their ambassadors at Constantinople to reaffirm this principle What end can be served by this is not stated the foreign office but it can hardly be ex- Pected that either Bulgaria or Aus triaHungary will consent to restore the legal status in Bulgaria and Bds nla and Herzegovina before the ques tions of independence and annexation are considered as the powers have decided must be done with respect to the island

speech Mr Taft went after both Mr Bryan and Mr Gompers Mr Bryan goes around the coun try saying I am the father of injunc tions declared Mr TaftflIt is not true I did not invent injunctions or

have been something besides a judge I had 30000 laborers under me on the Panama canal Of course we had difficulties down there We had the question of wages and I decided against the laborers What did they do I gave them the reasons for deciding the way I did Why they elected me a member of their union Why Because I was fair to labor Under that annunciation the trades unions have doubled in this

the prince had inaugurated anew fashion which one sees daily in operation in the Strand The dainty lace handkerchief which ladies use owes its origin also to the defects of nature The un happy Empress Josephine introduced the fashion She suffered from had teeth and living in the time when American dentistry was imkriown she cast about her for some means to hide the defect The cambric handkerchief with rich lace was the outcome If the empress wished to laugh or had to open her mouth widely the handkerchief was requisitioned Again yellow lace has its origin tradition1Alady band by shipwreck or

lumber cut in 1907 compiled by the Bureau of the Census and the Forest Service showed the largest total ever reported in the United States exceeding by over seven per cent the cut reported for 1906 until then the retford year This does not necessarilyrshow a larger actual cut than in for the returns ob comPlet11than interestingliacts t In 1907 28850 mills made returns audfheir production was over 40 bids lion feet of lumber This is believed- to include 95 per cent of the actual cut In 1900 22398 mills report ed about 37 billion feet Since according to these figures nearly 29 per cent more mills reported last thtmcreaSElnlittle over seven per cent it might be actuallyamanufactured must have been greater in the earlier year This however would be a too hasty inference for it JK almost

throws additional light en the situation Individual changes as for example the remark able rise of Texas from eighth to third place among the lumberpro States are doubtless ac 1ducing for primarily by the greater of the 1907 figures but in of cases the advances and declines can be traced to spe cific influences Feels the Panic Before the year closed the general iusiness depression was severely relt in the lumber industry It was not however the most important cause of a falling off in the produc tion of the where a falling off occurred For decline in production took place only in certain regions The South is the region of greatest activity in lumber production and yellow pine the most important wood forming 33 per cent of the entire cut of the country The cut of yellow pine reported shows an increase of 13 per cent over that of 1906 In the ekrtypari of the year many of the Southern mills cut so heavily that in spite of the curtailed out put which followed the business dis turbances later the total was great er than ever b foreBut in both the Lake States and the Northwest aI smaller cut was reported than for 1906 though the number of mills re porting increased In the Lake States In the Lake States the falling off evidenced the waning supply of white pine Michigan which for many years le- production d all the States in lumber and then gave way to Wisconsin sank in 1907 from fourth to seventh place while Wisconsin went from third to fifth Minnesota 0s dote as 1905 held fourth place Last year it went from seventh to miiith It was not until the latter 90s that the South displaced this grout of States as the most important source of lumber supply Since Southern pine is abundant in all the Atlantic Coast States from the Car olinas to Texas the region as a whole will doubtless maintain its leading position for some years in spite of the fact that at the present rate the bulk of the timber will be gone in another decade but in totals of production by individual States the leadership has since 1905 been held bv Washington Prices Are Going Up It is a striking fact that though lumber prices have been steadily going up during the last halt cent ury the per capita consumption of lumber has also been going up In 1850i7obtainable the average consumption to each person in the country was 250 feet in 1900 460 feet and in 1907 480 feet This illustrates what has been found true the world overthat with indusrtial progress the demand for wood becomes great er and greater- WINCHESTER ROLLER MILLS The oldest and best institution in the county is the Winchester Roller

ground Water Problem of the Farmers With an average of 27000 tons of water falling in the form ofrain on each mile of public road in the Unit ed States annually it is scarcely to be marvelled at that the ten commandments of the road builder can be summed up succinctly in the word drainageThe ying has truth for a basis as good urainage is the primary re quisite for all roads Even in sand roads this holds true for there good drainage means such its will safely remove the storm water with out erosion or gullying and still retain the surface moisture To Remove the Water To secure good drainage one must take into consideration both the sur face water and the underground water The surface water must be removed quickly and completely and without subjecting the road to ex cessive scour or erosion For this reason the center of the road should t be raised and the slope towards the side ditches should be from onehalf to one inch to each foot distance or so that the water w1U11m freely to the side ditches and not flow down the road or remain iIi puddles on the roadway The side ditches should be ofam ple size to care for the severest storms with a fall of not less than 6 inches to each one hundred feet Frequent and ample cross drains should be constructed and every op portunity taken to get the water away from the road as quickly as possible The Splitlog Drag The splitlog drag is essentially a tool to maintain good drainage on our earth roads and should be used after each rain On a heavy clay or gumbo soil the drag when properly used tends to puddle the road sur face keep it free from ruts dense smooth and hard thus securing the best surface drainage possible But in many places the underground water is too near the surface and must be removed before a good roadwill be possible This means that some form of subdrainage must be resorted to usually tile drains of clay or concrete Water from whatever source must be got ten rid of effectively for water plus clay or gumbo invariably equals mUG when mixed in spring and summer Water becomes ice in winter andas water in freezing expands oneeighth its volume the road heaves out of shape and when the ice melts the rpad disappears beneath the rising tide of mud constantly fed by rains melting snows and underground springsIn and boggy places the sub drainage in order to be fully effect ive should lower the water level to not less than three feet below the road surface If tiles are used they should be carefully laid true to grade Most failures in tile drain age can be attributed to carelessness in laying or too flat grade Tile less than four inches in diameter should rarely be used nor should a grade of less than six inches to the one hundred feet be used unless abso lutely necessary In a very dense soil it is always advisable to cover the tile to at least a depthof sjx to twelve inches with coarse sandor fine gravel Care should always be taken to secure a free outlet for the drains and to protect the outlet with a concrete bulkhead or catehbasin which can always be kept clean and the outlet fre- elOne great advantage of the concrete tile is that they can be easily made by the local users at or near the place where they are to be placed so that the freight charges are dispensedwith as well as the large breakage losses due to hand Placed in the ground both are durable If concrete is used great care should be taken to see that a good grade of Portland cement is selected and that the drains are properly constructed The impression which prevails tosome extent that tile disintegrates is
