A SHORT COHN CHOI*.
The situation in the Middle West Is
not only trying but serious in more
ways than one. It hiui been ao dry and
hot for so many weeks that not only
dooa the temperature vary from 100 to
218 at different polnta but "dry timber
and parched uotdoor woodwork have
been aet on Are by direct heat of the
aun, and In aomo localities railway
tracks have been ao expanded by heat
that they have been rendered temporlly
This la enough to take the March out
of anybody or anything and It la not
aurprlelng to hear through a Topeka
dispatch that the Populist organisa
tions of Kaneaa are "decadent” and
that ihe Democrats of the state are
trying to acoop them in while they are
comparatively helpless. The ruling
passion Is strong In death, however.
These decadent Kansas Populists, we
are told, still "cling to Bryan and bis
free silver theories,” and are "oven
more bitter against the Eastern, or so-
called gold Democracy, than toward
the Republican organization.” (Such
la the color of the genuine liryan coat.
It nmy bo remurks.l In pualng.)
Hut of inoro Importance than the
wilting of Populists la the parching of
the com Holds all through the Middle
West region. In the territory ao long
rev a gad by drought nearly three-
fourths of the country's com crop ls a
annually produced. Our average crop
la about 2.000,000,000 bushels. A good
half of this yield la harvested in the
alx states of Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska,
Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. Last
year the six states named produced
1,120.000,000, the two states of Iowa and
Nebraska alone yielding 511,000,000
bushels, or nearly one-half the sum
credited to the six largest corn pro
It Ip astonishing to learn that tho
other thirty-nine states of tho Union
grew last year only 220,000,000 and that
their average yield Is no greater. They
do not grow corn for export except on
ii small scale. Tho Injury to the corn
belt, therefore, not only means loss to
the corn planters, but loss to the rail
road* and Hteuinrhlp* and a decreased
Inflow of money from abroad. Already
price# In corn have advanced, for even
a ^needy termination of the drought
will not prevent a great cutting down
of the average crop. Farmers In Geor
gia and elsewhere who harvest a sur
plus of corn this year are likely toget
l« r il»et will cause them to regret
n »t having planted a larger acreage.

If tho supply continues to diminish at

The making of the United States gov
ernment’s division of forestry Into a
bureau on July 1, as provided for toy
the last eession of congress, was there
for# a timely event. The appropria
tion for the division of forestry during
the year just ended was 888.520, end for
the previous year 128,520.. The appro
prlation for the new buresu of forestry
durlhg the first year • was 1185,440.
These respective sums show how rap
idly the government's forest work Is
growing and Ita Increased Importance
In the public estimation. The bureau
of forestry Is made up of the. division
of forest management, the division of
forest Investigation, and 'ihe division
of records. Each of these continues,
with enlarged facilities, work which
was In progress under the old division
of forestry. The change from a divis
ion to a bureau, and the larger appro
prlation, will make poaslble both an
Improved office organisation and more
extended field work.
Thle latter work hae been In progreee
during the peat year from Maine to
Texaa and from Florida to Washington.
It Includes ’’the study of forest condi
tions and forest problems all over tbe
country, tho giving of advice to own
ers of forest lands ,end the eupervle-
Ing of conaervatlve lumbering opera
tions, which Illustrate forest manage
ment on business principles," We are
told that private owners aa well as
several atate governments have applied
for the aid of tho bureau, but that the
greateet demand cornea from tho de
partment of the interior, where the su
perrlelon of which are about forty-sev
en millions acres of forcet reserve!.
It Is stated that tbe result of the
work of tho division has already been
to change practical forestry In this
country from a doubtful experiment
Into an assured auccese. There aro
185 persons engaged In the service of
the bureau and field work I* to bo
done thle eummer In no lees then sev
enteen states. In addition to tho work
ulri-udy mention'd "special studies of
earns of the most Important trees, com
mcrclully, have been made, from which
can be calculated their probablo futur
yield. Cheep methods of harvesting
the prseent lumber crop without In
Jurlng the productivity of the forest
have been put In operation. Mean
while, the work of tree planting, par
ticularly In the almost treeless West
ern states of ths plains, has been fur
thered; the relation of the forest to
the volume of streams, erosion, evapo
ration and Irrigation have been
studied; matters connected with Irrl
gallon and water supply bee been In
veetlgated; hopeful progress has been
made In the direction of regulating
grating In the Western reserves,
a manner fair both to the Important
Interests of cattle and sheep owners
and to thoae who look to the reserves
as a source of continuous eupply
wood and water; and atuilles of forest
Urea were conducted with a view
reducing the great yearly looa from
thla source, a loaa which haa been es
timated st 150,000.00."
Tho proapecta of the accomplishment
of a great and vitally Important work
by the bureau of forestry are bright
There need be no lumber famine If our
past wasteful and destruclttve meth
ode aro corrected and are ei
by proper management providing for
the harvesting of rich lumber cr

The Virginia constitutional conven
tion proposes reducing the governor’s
salary from |5,000 to $4,000 a year, but
the Richmond Dispatch says; "Wo
ought to pay the governor salary
enough to enable him to live In a style
becoming his position, and, Inasmuch
as we never elect rich men to that of

save some money, as compensation for

GEORGIA EDITORS OX POLITICS.
Griffin News; That talk of a south
Georgian being entitled to the gover
norship la very much like the talk of
a Southern man for president. In poli
tics, a man Is entitled to what he can
get, with the rest of the crowd against
him; no more, no less.
Griffin Call; Picking presidential can
didates and naming Georgia governors
is consuming entirely too much time of
the average Georgian. With watermel
ons and peaches ripening on our hands,
with cotton and corn to follow, we had
better let politics alone.

and that its position will be generally
