whero men havo lost largo sums of
money nnd havo bestowed on the Sud
ors therouf tho most insignificant To
wards. Tho sums lost vary from 5000
to $3000 and tho rowards from ton cents
to ono dollar. If these stories nro truo
it may bo argued that tho mean men of
tho community havo all tho money and
that tho poor ones nro all honest. But
it is singular to say tho least that tho
dropping of well filled pocket hooUs
should havo become so general.

Tin: forests of many of our States are
rapidly diminishing, and this is par
ticularly stated of tho plno forests of
Pennsylvania. For ten years past tho
consumption of timber to supply the
numerous saw-mills of Williamsport
alone has been immense. Tho amount
of logs rafied out of tho boom for tho
present season will cut over 210,000,000
feet ol boards. It is safo to assumo that
300,000,000, feet aro annually manufac
tured at Williamsport. If wogo back ten
years wo havo tho cnormott s aggregato
of 3,000,000,000 feet. That this fearful
consumption of tho raw material can
contiuuo for many moro years is im
possible. But thu loss of tho supply of
lumber is not tho only evil result of de
nuding tho country of foresls. Tall trees,
by detaining mists and fogs until they
havo timo to form rain clouds, exerciso
an important influence In determining
tho quantity of' rain for tho year. A
Stato which destroys its trees will soon
suffer in climate.
