A Surprising Story of Matches.
The civilized nations of the world
strike ft,000,000 matches every minute
of the twenty-four hours. Nearly one-
half of these are ignited in this coun
try. Americans use up the enormous
total of seven hundred billions a year,
and have a larger match bill than any
other nation in the world. Hundreds
of factories over the country are en
gaged in this industry, about which
the general public knows little. Some
of the plants are very large, one on the
Pacific coast covering 240 acres, with
thirty-two miles of railroad, which sup
ply the match machines with 200,000
feet of sugar pine and yellow pine logs
A statement of the number of cubic
feet of wood which actually is convert
ed into matches each year would con
vey only an inadequate idea of the
number of trees required for the indus
try. For the manufacture of the
match the best grade of wood is nec
essary. Sapwood, knotty or cross-
grained timber will not do. This
makes it necessary to search the best
forests and pick out the choice trees
only, and nothing hut the choice por
tions of the best tree3 go to the match
machines. Jt may be seen that the
lumberman sweeps over a wide area
in search of suitable timber to feed
into the match machines.
Seldom is the little splinter tipped
with sulphur, or some other substances
to he ignited by friction, given even
scant, mention in the consideration of
the depletion of the world’s finest for
ests. Hut the manufacturers of these
little fire-sticks are as much concerned
over the timber supply question as any
would not apply to another. Nearly are nn t interested in the fight that ap-
overy manufacturing company has p 0 ars to he going on between the two

land covered by patents, and it also em
ploys processes discovered or devised
\ by its own chemists and mechanics,
I and kept secret to prevent rivals from
obtaining and profiting by them. Some
time ago an American company sold
the right to use its special machines in I g rown made a campaign for the Clov-
France, obtaining $100,000 in cash and j emorship against Mr. Smith and beat
an equal sum yearly as royalty. This him, notwithstanding the fact that it
shows how much a match manufac- was custom to give a Governor a
turer will pay to get the best. Only I secorK | term as an indorsement of his
by using the best that is obtainable is i administration. If there is a feeling of
factions for political advantage. What
they want is legislation that will best
promote their interests. In the making
of laws they expect the Legislature to
forget that Mr. Smith, when Governor,
removed Gov. Brown from the office of
Railroad Commissioner, and that Gov.
competition possible. A single machine
has been known to turn out 177,926,-
400 matches in one day—boxed and
labeled ready for shipment.
A Histrionic Difficulty.
The Shakespeare Club of New
Orleans used to give amateur theatri
cal performances that were distin
guished for the local prominence of the
actors. Once a social celebrity, with a
gorgeous costume, as one of the lords
in waiting, had only four words to say :
“The queen has swooned.” As he
stepped forward his friends applauded
vociferously. Bowing his thanks, he
faced the king and said, in a very high-
pitched voice: “The swoon has
There was a roar of laughter, but he
waited patiently and made another at
"The sween has cooned.”
Again the walls trembled and the
stage manager said, in a voice which
could be heard all over the house:
“Come off, you doggoned fool.”
But the ambitious amateur refused
to surrender, and in a rasping falsetto,
as he was assisted off the stage, he
“The coon has sweened!”
A little town near Providence, R. I.,
boasts a church whose pastor, besides
being an eloquent preacher, is a man
of stalwart proportions. At one of his
evening prayer-meetings the services
were disturbed by two young men who
audibly scoffed at everything they saw
>ther class of men engaged in an in-

' strated with them on their behavior,
dustry whose welfar
use of forest products.
It might be supposed that because
matches are small the makers of them
would utilize scraps and left-overs.
This is never the case; matches are
not by-products. The match machine
takes the finest timber and what it re
jects goes to the by-product yard, and
Ihe by-product end of the match busi
ness becomes the largest end, so far as
bulk is concerned. Among the by
products turned out by the large Pacific
coast factory just mentioned are 1,000
doors and 800 sashes daily.
As a matter of fact, it would he im
possible to carry on the match business
at all, at present prices, if the rejected
lutnler were not worked into some
thing else. The room where matches
are made is frequently the smallest
department of a match factory. The
larger portions contain the saw-mills
and planing mills, where doors, sash,
shingles, laths, sidings, posts, cord-
wood and many other salable commod
ities are made ready for market.
This country, although it has the
most abundant material and the finest
machinery in the world for the pur
pose, does not manufacture enough
matches to supply the home market.
Thousands of dollars worth are annual
ly imported from Germany, Austria,
France, Sweden and other countries,
where they are made by cheaper labor
and poorer machinery, and usually
from higher-priced wood, though it is
not better than what is grown in the
American forests. The imports are
largely safety matches which can be
struck only on the box or other special
ly prepared surface.
Wood for matches is a much more
serious problem in some of the Euro
pean countries than it yet is in the
United States. The most suitable
match timber is pine, linden, aspen,
white cedar, poplar, birch and willow.
Others, however, are occasionally used.
Germany imports willow and aspen
from Russia. Some time ago the Ger
man match manufacturers petitioned
the Minister of Agriculture to cause
the foresters to plant aspen in the
State forests to supply wood for
matches without importing it. A sim
ilar petition to their Government was
presented by the French manufacturers
of matches who wanted a home sup;
At the same time the Russian manu
facturers of matches asked their G
ernment to take measures to check
the export of match wood to foreign
countries, because the material was
needed at home.
In the United States, as well as
Canada, a diligent search for choi
forests is maintained, ami very large
tracts have been bought by companies
in the match business, not only to meet
present demands but to provide for
years to come. In a single year one
match company cut 225,000,000 board
feet of pine in the lake region. Tk«

“We came expecting to see miracles

The “Rock of Moses” lies in the
wild valley at the base of Jebul Musa,
the Mount of the Law in the peninsula
of Sinai. The rock is 18 to 20 feet
high, slightly inclined, a rough inden
tation running over each side, which is
intersected here and there with slits,
and the stone is worn away in places as
if from the effects of running water.
It is beyond doubt the oldest lengendary
object in the vicinity. The Koran
refers to this rock more than once, and
from these allusions rose the reverence
of the Bedouins, who hold it sacred.
From the Middle Ages onward it has
been visited by Christian pilgrims, who
have carved rude crosses on its sides.

their immediate followers it ought to
be confined to them. It ought not to
be allowed to appear in the Legislature

that Mr. Smith’s friends are trying to
shape legislation so as to make Gov.
Brown’s administration a failure, they
are making a mistake, if they plan to

The people are not asleep. They are
very wide awake. One of the reasons
why Gov. Brown defeated Mr. Smith
in the last gubernatorial contest was
the resentment the people felt against
Mr. Smith for removing Mr. Brown
from the office of Railroad Commission
er without sufficient cause. And if the
mpression gets abroad that Mr. Smith
and the politicians who are in sympathy
with him are trying to put Gov. Brown
in a hole, as it were, the resentment
against Mr. Smith and his faction will
be even more pronounced than it was
in the last gubernatorial campaign.
IJ: is but natural that Gov. Smith
should feel sore over his defeat. Any
other man would feel just about as he
does, but the people are not going to
feel any more kindly toward him if he
uses his influence to defeat legislation
which they want and policies which they
approve. If he is pursuing that course
he is not strengthening himself and his
faction. He is only making more
friends for Gov. Brown, because the
people believe in a square deal, and
they will insist that Gov. Brown shall
have it. If he doesn’t get it from the
Legislature he will have only to place
the situation squarely before them in
order to get another term and a Legis
lature that will be more responsive to

Some people set good examples,

The most important part of the human system is the blood. Every mus
cle, nerve, tissue, bone and sinew is dependent on this vital fluid for nour
ishment and strength necessary to maintain them in health and enable each
to perform the different duties nature requires. Even the heart, the very
“ engine ” of life, receives its vigor and motive power from the blood. Since
so much is dependent on this vital fluid it can very readily be seen how
necessary it is to have it pure and uncontaminated if we would enjoy the
blessing of good health. Bad blood is responsible for most of the ailments
of mankind ; when from any cause it becomes infected with impurities,
humors or poisons, disease in some form is sure to follow. Muddy, sallow
complexions, eruptions, pimples, etc., show that the blood is infected with
unhealthy humors which have changed it from a pure, fresh stream to a
sour, acrid fluid, which forces out its impurities through the pores and
glands of the skin. A very common evidence of bad blood is sores or ulcers,,
which break out on the flesh, often
from a very insignificant bruise or
even scatch or abrasion. If tire blood
was pure and healthy the place would
heal at once, but being loaded with
impurities, which are discharged into
the wound, irritation and inflamma
tion are set up and the sore continues.
Bad blood is also responsible for
Anaemia, Boils, Malaria, etc.; the
weak, polluted circulation cannot fur
nish tiie nourishment and strength
required to sustain the body, and a
general run-down condition of health
results. S. S. S. is nature’s blood
purifier and tonic; made entirely of
healing, cleansing roots and herbs.
It goes down into the circulation and removes every particle of impurity,
humor or poison that may be there, restores lost vitality, and steadily tones
up the entire system. It adds to the blood the healthful properties it is in
need of, and in every way assists in the cure of disease. S. S. S. neutral
izes any excess of acid in the blood, making it fresh and pure, and perma
nently cures Eczema, Acne, Tetter, and all other skin diseases and eruptions.
S. S. S. cures Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores aud Ulcers, Malaria, and all
other diseases or disordtrs arising from bad blood. Book on the blood and
any medical advice desired free to all who write.

Your S. S. S., in my opinion, is as good a
medicine as can be had; it simply cannot be
i mproved upon as a remedy to purify and enrich
the blood and to invigorate and tone up the
system. This spring my blood was bad and I
was run down in health, and having seen your
medicine highly advertised I commenced its use.
Today my blood is in fine condition and my
general health is of the best. Am filling posi
tion as fireman for a large concern here, and
if I was not in good physical condition it would
be impossible for me to fill the place. Your
S. S. S. has been of great service to me and I do
not hesitate to give it the credit it deserves.
