No Danger ot nri htarum.
The opening of the war college at
Washington gave 01 portunity for
showing the characteristic American
spirit. This was fitly illustrated in
what was said by Secretary of Stat--
Koot, who is regarded as the fathe.
of the war college bscause he, while
secretary of war. gave impetus to the
movement which lias resulted in the
completion of the structure. There ■
was nothing inconsistent, said Secre-
tary Root in effect, in a nation devoted
to peace possessing at the capital
such an institution as this. The neces-
sity tor military instruction was never
more apparent than now, in the light
of the demands of modern science.
And the country, however friendly re-
lations may be with others, that neg-
lects proper precautions assuredly is
not wise. Secretary Koot added: "We
are not a military nation, and never
shall be. We are warlike enough to
rise in defense of our rights. We are
singularly like the English, and singu-
larly unlike most of the nations of the
continent. Our ideas are political and
not military. We do not therefore na
turally run into the mold of military
organization." Fears of the I nited j
States being swept into the vortex of
militarism" are absurd, declares the
Troy (N. Y.) Times. But preparations
for effective defense are based on the
soundest principles and the purest
patriotism. Secretary Koot s address
at the war college struck a note to
which the common sense of the coun-
try responds with promptness.

Tragedy of Vanishing Forests.
There are some men in public life
who profess to believe that trees grow-
about as fast as they are used and that
it is foolish to worry about the future
and try to make provisions for it I ii*s
opinion is sometimes heard in ths
halls of congress. Secretary of Agri-
cultural Wilson, who has given the
subject much attention, says: "We are
now using in one year as much wood
as grows in three, with only 20 \ears
of virgin growth in sight." This is an
alarming prediction, but Chief Fores-
ter Pinchot thinks it is too favorable.
He says the country Is now consuming
100,000,000,000 feet of lumber, lioard
measure, annually, which will exhaust
our supply of timber in 14 years. We
cannot afford to run out of American
lumber in 14, 20 or 30 years, declares
the Philadelphia Press. The waning
supply must be replenished
hills must be reforested on a large
scale. When the necessity of this is
demonstrated so that the most incred-
ulous must believe it, the indifference
to reforestation will give place to zeai
and spasmodic efforts here and there
will be succeeded by a comprehensive year
and continuous work of tree planting.

OF TWO EVILS. ETC.
Youngster Evidently Hsd His
Idea as to the Che .:.
My neighbor, writes a correspondent,
has four young sons, whom he and his
wife duly l?ad to chuich every Sun-
day. Jus, as the sermon was about
to begin last Sunday one of the boys
was observed to look very uncomfort-
able, and, having explained the nature
of his sufferings, was sen, home. His
\ounger brother, in an urgent whis-
\ Kansas school teacher is in trou- j
ide because she pasted strips of court
j lsster over the lips of a boy who
would whisper in school. Now the
father of the boy has hired lawyers to
tee whether the constitution provides
for such forms of punishment, and if
not to make the teacher share a part
of her salary with the boy to soothe
his ruffled feelings. If the teacher
wins out before the courts what a
large field It opens up! What a fine
thing It would be, for example, if those
running for office could paste broad
strips of court-plaster over the mouths
of their fool friends! They could feel
comparatively safe with only .heir
enemies running at large. Many
homes might be happier if the man of
the house when he wanted to sit
down for an evening of quiet medita-
tion could just seal in this way the
lips of the dear and devoted wife who
wanted to spend the same evening
telling him of his shortcomings.
