"The huge sums of money dt rived
from tourists travel is of increasing
local importance," the article says.
"It has been estimated that tourists'
spend something like $.~>0.000.0u0 in!
Colorado alone during the vacation'
period. California is reputed i?? re-'
ceive $500,000,000 a year from j
this same tourists source; while in
Minnesota the estimates are placed
at $ 150.000.000.
"If the estimates of those who have i
studied the situation are correct, and
a million persons visit the Great \
Smoky Mountains Park nnnuaily. j
the income from this traffic woul-.l
approximate $100,000,000. This!
money would go to the shop- keeper, j

"To compare the potential income
from the national park tourists with
the actual income of the state of

may be an unfair comparison.

that in the fiscal year ending June
30. 1025, the income to the state
Ifiom its national forests was only
i $8,!S68. The total income to the
nation from the 158,305,056 acres
I of national foiest lands in this same
I fiscal year was $5,000,137. Of this
national income the greater share
[came from the sales of timber and
from livestock grazing permits,
$2,040,203 having been realized
I from the timber sales, and $1,725.377
fr >m the grazing ] err..its. Permits
for the use of nation)! forests
for summer homes, and other forms
of special use. including water power,
brought in $334,376. In other words,
the amount of money realized from
the national forest lands, covering
millions of acres of mountain lands
in the Appalachians and the Rickic?
of the West, brought in an income
in one year equal to the amount left
by tourists in the State of California

was a resident of the town at tha
time that is now living, and but

only was the town quite differed
then from tire present time, but a
the surroundings were different. Th
stock lived fat the winter throng
on the cane brakes, on the creek-, an
rivers, and the mast and winte
range in the mountains. The river
were alive with fish and the wood:
abundantly supplied with game. Th
pastimes and amusements were Uit
lerent. The settlers were most);
from the Kastern part of the State
nr.i they weie intelligent and vvel
to do farmers, and weie like a bam
of brothers. The beai hunt and thi
deer chase was most common; o?he
wild animals ' were identiful?tlv
wolves could be henred howling 01
the mountain t-'ps at a feariul rate
and it was no strange thing to hca

of the soldier could ont reach them
and squads could be seen on thi
streets of the new town trading fo
ammunition and begging for breat
every day in the week, and whei
they would chance to get a little
'fire water ' they would start oul
single file, about ten paces apart, anc
would think nothing of running ter
miles without a halt to their home al

The mo t exciting amusement, ant!
one that was patronized by all. or
nearly all. age- and sexes was the
