Was the topic chosen by Mr. S. B.
Elliott, of the 'Pennsylvania Forestry
Reservation Commission, who spoko
as the guest of the Lumbermen's
Exchange of tho City of Philadelphia.
The address excerpted below was
embellished by numerous lantern
" Wlillo growing trees for econo
mic purposes Is a widely separated
undertaking from that of harvesting
and converting them Into the various
and well-known " forest products,"
thero Is still such a relation between
them that the line of demarcation Is
dim and uncertain; hence It seems
necessary that not 'only those engag
ed In each of these undertakings, but
the general public also, should havo
an accurate understanding of the
alms and labors oi each.
" The most important feature of
economic forestry is to produce suit
able trees which, when properly pre
pared by the lumberman, will furnish
such necessary commodities as tim
ber, boards, planks, etc. But fores
try has other significant features,
such as beautifying the landscape,
furnishing places for rest, recreation
and health, providing homes for
birds and other harmless wild ani
mals, preventing erosion of the soil,
and bringing about an equable flow
Of springs and streams all import
ant features but all subordinate In
Importance to the primal one of pro
ducing forest products so absolutely
necessary for our civilization and
national prosperity.
" Although the forester may not
dispose of his product he still may
be able to carry on such work as will
bring forth the lesser benefits nam
ed, but the lumbermen cannot do
anything unless the forester provides
him with trees; and this is true
whether nature or man is the fores
ter. He must have trees as the
basis of his business or he will find
his "occupation gone." Hence, in
these features, there is a close asso
ciation in fact and thero should be In
sympathy and effort. The lumber
man can have no better friend than
the forester should be, and the
forester no more worthy ally than
the lumberman. Each should know
and appreciate the other's needs.
When It Is known that all but one
tenth of 1 per cent, of the lumber
manufactured In the sawmills of the
United States was cut from thirty
one species of trees, and that SC. 9
per cent, of the total was from ten
species only of which the various
species of pine furnished 50.2 per
cent. it Is clear that the forester
should not go after " strange gods"
and endeavor totproduce species not
demanded, but give the lumberman,
and consumer such as they most
" In all this, and more, there
should be a close and intimate un
derstanding and co-operation, and
it is gratifying to know that such un
derstanding and co-operation is on a
rapid Increase. The illogical view
held by some in the early history of
the forestry movement, that the trees
of the forest are too sacred to have
the " profane hands " of the lum
berman laid upon them no longer
prevails, and all intelligent advo
cates of forestry must see that as
soon as the trees are mature they
should be cut down and used and
now ones planted in their places.
The forests should bo for use and the
lumberman should uso them, but he
should uso them wisely.
"Thus it will be seen that tho
forester and the lumberman should
be, and I trust are, in accord; and if
so tho future is full of promise; and
this alliance Is more gratifying from
the fact that wo are fast approaching
a timber famine in this country, and
the price of lumber in the market
will, ere long, be the cost of produc
tion from seed planted, plus a rea
sonable profit, just as prevails with
wheat, oats, corn, or any other cro'p
of the soil. That day is inevitable,
and not far distant, and tho alliance
of the forester and lumberman will
do much to lessen the famine's sev
erity. Our virgin forests will soon bo
exhausted and we can go to no other
country for a supply, and we must
depend upon such forests as we may
be able to produce, just as Germany,
France, Switzerland and some other
European countries now do In part,
and must fully do when their for
eign supply is gone.
" While I do not approve of all
. '-y "
that the lumber manufacturer and
dealer have done In tho past, or are
doing now, I do not, on the other
hand, condemn them for all their
acts. To charge that the lumber
manufacturer of the past has been
guilty of great waste, and that the
dealer has made little or no progress
in disposing of any but the best pro
ducts of tho forest, does not take In
to consideration the conditions
which surrounded them. They man
ufactured and disposed of everything
that they could without a loss4, and
who will claim that they should have
done more? If we search out the
really guilty party we will find that
the consumer controlled in the mat
ter. My greatest criticism of the
lumberman Is that he did not, nor Is
he now doing anything to perpetuate
the forests. Therein lies his greatest
fault, and it Is " a grievous one."

Porous Plaster Wnlsts Disapproved

New Britain, Conn., Aug. 23.
Yesterday was pay day for the twen
ty stenographers In the offices of
Landers, Fray & Clark, hardware
manufacturers, and in the pay en
velope of each employe was a neatly
worded note calling attention to the
fact that the management " disap
proves of slashed, slit and shadow
skirts and porous plaster waists."
The girls were shocked, as they
havo enjoyed the reputation of be
ing the first In New Britain to wear
the latest things from Broadway.
They knew wnat was meant by
slashed, slit and shadow skirts, but
when they Inquired about porous
plaster waists they were informed
that those are the kind that fit as
tightly as a plaster and are so por
ous that there Is hardly sufficient ma
terial to hold the holes together.

Tho Mania for Undressing.
(From The London Times.)
What is patent to the least obser
vant nowadays is that women wear
almost nothing under their gowns,
even in the daytime. Petticoats went
'some time back and wero replaced
by tights or not replaced at all.
The stockings are of such diaphan
ous silk as to embarrass the beholder
who sees, even in the street, so much
of them, 'and they are not covered
by any but court shoes.
So much for tho foundation. Over

transparent material, cut almost as
low by day as by night, arid with
