The Roanoke River rises iu
Virginia among the Blue Ridge
mountains. It is called the Dan
until it reacheUhe point where the
Stauton River joins it. From
there it is called the Roanoke after

north-eastern boundary of Martiu

People everywhere take pleasure
in testifying to the good qualities
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Mr*. Edward Phillips ot Barclay,
Md., writes. "I wish to tell you
that I can recommend Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. My little
girl, Catherine, who is two years
old, has taken this remedy when
ever she has had a cold since she
was two months old. About a
month ago 1 contracted a dreadful
cold myself, but I tooC Chamber

the current would be so swift that
it would take an extra strong vessel
to cotue up it. About three years
ago the river was blocked with ice
from the mountains for nearly a
week. This river is verv dangerous.
It does not slope down gradually,
but out for five or ten feet it -goes
down all of a sudden. You never
know when you are going to get
in an eddv. and be turned around
like a top. When you are once
turned over there is no getting out.
The scenery down the river,is> very
pretty. Most every kind of tree
grows ou the banks, and they are
covered with gray and green moss,
which hangs in festoous and makes

THE TIMBER SUPPLY.
Three Times as Much Timber Used
Each Year aa the Forest Grows.
Kvery person in Ihe United
State is using over six titnes as
much wood as he would use if he
were in Kurope. The country as
a whole consumes every vear
between three and four times more
! wokl than at! of the forests of the
j Uuited States gfow in the mean
time. The average acre of forest
lays up a store of ouly. 10 cubic
feet annually, whereas it ought to
l>e laying up at least y> cubic feet
in order to furrish the products
taken out of it. Since 1880 more
than 700,000,000,000 feet of tim
ber have been cut for lumber alone,
including 80,000,000,000 feet of
coxiferous stuuipage estimate of
the Census in 1880.
These are some of the remark
able statements made in Circular
97 of the Forest Service, which
deals with the timber supply of
the United States and reviews the
stumpage estimates made by all
the important authorities. A
study of the circular must lead
directly to the conclusion that the
rate at which forest products in
the United States have l>een and
are beipg consumed is far tco
lavish, and that only oue result can
follow unless steps are promptly
taken to preveut waste in use and
to increase the growth rate ol
every acre of forest in the United
States. This result is timber fam
ine. This country is to day in the
same position with regard to for
est resources as was Germany 150
years ago. During this period ol
150 years Such German States as
Saxony and Prussia, particularly
the lattfcr, have applied a policy of
government control and regulation
which has immensely increased the
productivity of their forests. The
same policy will achieve even bet
ter results in the United States >
because we have the advantage of
all the lessons which Kuro]>c has
learned and paid for in the course
of a century of theory and practice
I,e«t it might be assumed that
the rapid aud gaining depletion of
American forest resources is suffi
ciently accounted for by the in
crease of population, it is ]>oiuted
out in the circular that the increase

in population since 1880 is bately
more than half the increase in
lumber cut in the same period.
Two areas supplying titnl>er have
already reached and passed their
maximum production—the North
eastern States in 1870 and the:
I.ake States in 1890. To-day the
Southern States, which cut yellow j
pine amounting to one-third the
total anuual lumber cut of the
country, are undoubtedly near their
maximum. The Pacific States will
soon take the ascendency. The!
State of Washington within a few
years has come to the front and |
now ranks first of all individual
States in volume of cut.
At present but one-fifth of the
total forest area of the United
States is embraced in National
Forests. The remaining four
fifths have already passed or are
most likely to pa«s into private
hands. The average age of the
trees felled for lumber this year is
not less than 150 years. In other
words, if he is to secure a second
crop of trees of the saitie size, the
lumberman or private forest owner
must wait, say, at least oue hun
dred years for the second srop of
trees to grow. As a rule, such
long-time investments as this
waiting would involve do not com
mend themselves to business men
who are accustomed to quick re
turns. But the States and the
Nation can look much farther
ahead. The larger, then, the area
of National and State control over
woodlands, the greater is the like
lihood that the forests of the
country will be permanently pro
