no one can be blind to who has shared In the slightest the responsibility for government and the resppn cibllity for improvement In a people aa I have That was responsibility In respect to a race that is now in a state of Christian tutelage and must be uplifted in my judgment by us and through our guidance before we v shall have discharged the obligation that Providence has thrust upon us V And In the study of the development it has been made known to me the r enormous Influence that the church must exercise in order to make our progress there effective The Roman Catholic church was there for years and preserved that state of Christian tutelage to which I have referred Now the ban has been removed froth other denominations and they are all in there on an equality in the spirit of Christian emulation attempting to uplift those people and we for the government by a system of secular education are aiding that uplifting but without the moral Inrfluence of the churches there we could not accomplish anything It is that sort of experience by which there Is borne in upon us the impocitance of the maintenance of a church and its influence at all hazards It is difficult sometimes to explain to one who has been used to the close union of church and state such as was preserved in Spain such as is preserved in some other countries J the real attitude of the American government toward the church He assumes that if we separate the church from the state it means that the state does not favor the church I had the honor to represent this country in a transaction of a business character with Leo XIII at the vati- can and there I pointed out to him with all the emphasis possible that the separation of church and state4Bwas in the interest of the church that in America he

entirely is a re mark often heard and indeed wh one stands oil lower Broadway and looks up at the towering skyscrapers the statement seams to contain much truth As a matter of fact however the popular idea that fireproof materials will do away with the needo1 using lumber in comparatively few years is a very erroneous one All of the various fireproof materials going in to the approved construction of the more substantial buildings are used in greater quantities now than the world dreamed oia few years ago yet the heavy demand for lumber con tines Wood Predominates That wqod predominates shown by the annual building records Of the permits used for buildings erected last year approximately 61 per cent were constructed of wood and the remaining 39 per cent of fire resisting material according to a report issued by the Geological Survey on opera tins in fortynine leading cities of the country These figures are the more significant when it is realized that they only represent the building activities in the largest cities they do not take into account the construction of dwellings stores and other buildings in thfe thousands of small cities and towns scattered over and not included in the fortynine cities on which the reckoning is made Towns and Small Cities In towns and small cities wood is usually the predominating building material and it is safe to say that if the statisticsiiad included figures for all places whatever size the per centage of wooden construction would have been much greater These fig ures as a rule are only for the corporate limits and the subiirbs of these cities have each very large amounts to be added The cost also is relatively higlier in these cities than in towns nearer the base of thp supply MAYOR WOODS REELECTED THE EDITOR OF

goes the distinction of getting the first National Forest created east of the Mississippi River Paevident Roosevelt has just signed a procla nlatiou setting aside and naming the Ocala National Forest in Marion county in Eastern Floddaan other proclamation creating the Dakota NatiolfllForest in Billings coun ty North Dakota Inasmuch as the last named National Fore t is the first in North Dakota the two procla mations add two more States to the list of those wherin land will ibe put under scientific forest administration There are now nineteen States and Alaska having National Forests Area of Over 200000Acres Beforc the creation of the Ocala in Florida the two forests in Arkan sas were the Easternmost National Forests Practically all the other National Forests are in the Rocky Mountain and the Pacific Coast Stat es The Florida forest has an area of 201480 acres of whichabout one fuuth has been taken up under va rious land laws It covdr aplateau between the St Johns and Ochlaw aIm livers and at no point is an elevation exceeding 150 feet above sea level obtained Fitted For Forest Growth The area is by nature better fitted for the production of forest growth than for any other purpose Nearly all of the area however seems particularly well adapted to the growth of sand1 pine which is even now re placing the less valuable species and with protection from fire almost the entire area will in time undoubtedly be covered with a dense standof this slcies The longleaf pine a much more valuable commercial tree than the sand pine appears rather sparse ly on this forest ands confined prin Cipall3tto the lower flat lands along the streams on the borders of the forest Pines and Scrub Growths In addition to the pines and scrub growths bald cypress cabbage palmetto and tupelo gum gradually changing to watet oak ash elm magnolia hickory and maple are found bordering the numerous ponds and lakes which are scattered abundantly throughout the confines of this for stIFire has played L Very important part in bringing about the prcsent poorly forested condition of the Ocalo as year after year large fires have burned l uninterruptedly er this tract killing all vegetation and consuming the humus of the soil Naturally protected portions which have hot been subject to the flames prove positively however that the soilwill rapidly4 respond toa little care taking and that the prevention of fires wOJIld eventually mean the reforestation of practically the en tir area No Sawmill Operations No sawmill operations have been conducted on the area included in the Ocala National Forest Turpen ting by boxing is carried on over con tiguous areas and through the care less and antiquated methods used the future pine crop of the adjoining re gion is greatly jeopardized The soil is of little value for agricultural purposes and about the only crop which can be produced that will be of lasting value is sand pine and with proper care and attention there should in time be a valuable forest of this species Bad Lands Region The new Dakota National Forest consists of 14080 acres in the Bad- Lands region It is located in Bil lings county and lies an equal dis tance between the

around their farms Forest is Very Open The forest is very open and for the most part contains a scatteiingsand- of western yellow pine timber Along the creclc bed is found ash box el der cottonwood elm and birch Ced ar breaks are also found on pre cipitqus slopes bordering the streams Western yellow pine is the only merr chantable species however on the forest and the average stand per acre is not over 2000 feet The repro duct on of pine is fairly good wherever mature trees oCCur but owing to the open condition of the forest and the dense growth of grass it is for the most parj unsatisfactory Little Timber Sold There is but little timber that will be sold from the forest at the present time since this area ivery iso lat d being surrounded on all sides vast plains Many homest aders- Ihavein the past come to this forest for timber for logs to build their houses Since the cpmpletiou of the Chicago Milwaukee and St Paul railroad Billings county is rapidly being settled and while stock grazing is at the present time the most important industry it is very probable that farming will become the most impor tant industry within the next few years It is very important there fore that the timber which now reT mains should be conserved exclusively for the use of the home builder Few Homesteaders At the present time there are jut seven homesteaders within the our daries of the forest but all of the old sections are alienated land being owned by the Western Land Securities Company This company has been selling portions of their holdings during the past few years Very little of the Government land within the boundaries of the forest is suit able for farming purposes since it is quite rough andbroken and water is very scarce It is the country out side of the forest which is now being talcen upby settlers No Sawmill Operations No sawmill operations have ever been conducted on the area When the Northern Pacific railroad was beingbuilt a larger number of trees were cut for railroad ties and together with the logs which have beet procured for house building by settlers this is the only use which has been made of the timber on the for est Itis understood that the

My but I am a good actor to night ehsajd Booth with a little laugh You stuck dead the child answered I hadito was the actors answer partly to himself and partly to the child the audience was dead piitil I did If they show signs of dying again Fll tumble over a chair iliey think Ive been drinking and they willI watchme like cats andihelp me out V Some years later Miss Barrymore sat in front one night watching y Booths performance of Richelieu She still remembers that he played one entire scene crossing and re crossing the stage many times sup porting himself by holding to the back of a heavy chair Miss Barry more naturally went back to see whether the great man would be able to finish the performance He met her with a hearty laugh You thought I had been drinking or that I was ill1 he said Why I had to holdon to that chair I was carry ing that whole audience the deadest weight in the world I tried sticking for what seemed like five minutes in the second act but it didxnotcon centrate their attention Allofwhich amply illustrates thatnot even the great ones can enter the spirit of a part unless the people in front come along There is no place in the world so lonely as a stage inhab ited by an actor conscious that the audience is not giving him its und vided attention REDUCED s I willmake photographs at great ly reduced prices during the month of lductionEARPS ART STUDIO 123 o l

forestry in the United StatesOffer Still Good This offer has never been with drawn The work which its fulfill ment involved was the chief cause of the rapid growth of the Forest Ser vice between 1898 and 1905 Since 1905 however the necessity of pro lung first of all for the needs of the National Forests has compelled nrtailment of expenditures for gen jral investigations since neither men ior

Extractor Contrived by F C Alford In view of the increasing interest in apiculture in Colorado and the lack of definite information on the subject of the extraction of beeswax an im portant product of the industry F C Alford of the Colorado station has made a study of the relative efficiency of different methods of extraction now in use He experimented with solar extractors those using steam and those using pressure under water heat ed sufficiently to melt the wax In the latter method he used water alone and water containing sulphuric acid The solar extractor used by Mr Al ford was simple in construction and can be made by anyone who is handy with tools It consists of a wooden box about 30 inches long 16 Inches broad and 6 inches deep This box is lined with tin and near one end a wirecloth screen to allow the melt ed wax to run down into a pan at the lower end of the box The waste wax and brood comb were placed in the up per part of the box which was set at an angle toward the sun and covered with glass preferably double The size of the solar extractor will be deter mined by the amount of wax to be ex tracted If desired a lamp may be used to furnish additional heat A hole should be cut in the bottom of the box Interior The arrangement of the extractlngroom shown in the engraving is the most satis factory that I have ever used writes Carl H Hansen of Wisconsin The extractor Is more stable than I have been able to have it when placed on a box furthermore I find it easier to turn the machine when It is low down The position of the honeypail is a disadvan tage but if next seasons crop warrants the expense I shall ararnge to have the honey conveyed through a pipe directly to vats in the cellar The extractor is placed at the edge of the trapdoor open ing into the cellar The honey after be ing drawn is emptied into large earthen ware jars or into tin 11 Tie extract ing completed we wash the extractor place a large piece or rheesotutu over the top of the extractorcan and fasten so that the heat of the lamp will strike the tin lining under the wire screen The lamp should be protected from the wind The use of a lamp increased the efficiency of the extractor about one per cent A like in crease was obtained by soaking the comb in water for several days before extractiona practice followed by some bee keepers Soaking the tomb for three days in a five per cent solu tion sulphuric acid increased the yield of wax about five per cent Three kinds of steam extractors were tested in these experiments Tests also made of pressure un der water with and without addition of five per cent of sulphuric acid pressing Under Water The comb with some water was put in a tub on the stove and the wax allowed to melt but not boil A can was placed under a press and a slatted fol lower placed in the bottom of the can Above this was placed a burlap bag and the hot water melted wax and comb were poured into the bag the top of the bag folded over a slatted follower placed on top and pressure applied by means of a screw Afters some of the wax had been forced out the water and wax were drawn off the pressure relieyed Ute slumgum stirred hot water added and pressure applied again The can which fits under the press lias two holes which are stopped by corks One is at the bottom and the other near the top By pulling the cork out of the upper hole the wax which has risen to the top can bs drawn off and by using the lower hole all of the wax and water can be removed The whole apparatus must as possible v Y v t Sulphuric Acid and Pressure Under Water It was thought that the addi tion of acid to the water in the expert ment might Increase the efficiency of the method The comb was heated in a porcelainlined tub with a solution of five per cent commercial sulphuric acid When the wax had melted it was poured into the sack in the press and pressure applied quickly in order not to have the acid in contact with the metal any longer than necessary The wax and water were drawn off boiling water added the slumgum stirred and pressure applied again This water was drawn off and put with the rest As this was an experi ment to determine the efficiency of the press a tin can was used but in prac tical work it would be necessary to have everything acid proof as hot acid even when diluted is very destructive to most substances The can could be made of wood or por clainlined ware m maniIlatThe wax obtained with the steam ex tractors did not have a good color and would have had to be refined before it could be used The wax from the solar extractors was always a better color of nsensExtractng House Madison of were to beliptaswarni the cloth with a heavy cord The hon ey is skimmed and then strained into the extractorcan After the bubbles of air have risen to the surface we run the honey directly into pint mason Jars and finally put on the labels We do not heat the honey as our trade does not demand It In fact many prefer it in the candied state The editor of Bee Culture suggests that one better afford to cut a hole in the floor in which to put the pall and when the extracting season is over cover it with a trapdoor A better ar rangement as suggested is to run a tin pipe to convey the honey to a tank on a lower level The trouble with running the honey direct into a pail is that one is likely to forget and let the honey run over and waste Enough is lost in this way to pay for a tin pipe in a short time than that from the steam extractors The wax formed by pressure under wa ter was nearly as good in color as the wax from the solar extractors Wax from old brood comb is too dark to be used for comb foundation so that some satisfactory method of bleaching must be employed Various methods of bleaching were therefore tried but most of them either destroyed the wax or were in themselves poisonousAs of these experiments and from his experience fn handling bees and rendering wax Mr Alford ex presses the following opinion It is best for the average bee keep er to have a large solar wax extractor heated by some artificial heat by means of which most of the wax in the lighter colored combs cappings and burr combs may be easily ren dered The dark combs may also be treated in this manner and the slum gum stored in barrels until the bee keeper has time to treat it with dilute sulphuric acid and press under water This method is quick and efficient If the wax be refined it can be done by heating while inclosed in a canton flannel sack with a solution contain ing five per cent of hydrogen perox ide and two to five per cent of sul phuric acid Both of these chemicals can be bought at the ordinary drug store The common kind commercial should be used In mixing the acid and the water care should be taken to always pour the acid gently into the water and not the water into the acid The cost of chemicals compared with the results obtained is very slight t i f Peoples State Bank CAPITAL 1OOOOO This bank
