Fifty years ago, Florida was 99 per

and drouths were unknown. Of course
this condition of affairs could not be
expected to continue. Agriculture
and stock raising would not have re

the timber and turpentine industries

more than half our forests, with a

A treeless country is always a
desert country, the reason being that
trees attract rain in moderate quan quantities,

deserts there are drouths broken at
long intervals by heavy storms, but
moderate rains are unknown. Trees
also temper the climate. Where there
are great forests the weather is not
so hot or so cold as in treeless lands
in the same latitude. Our "Great
American Desert" was once a treeless
weste, where the grass, green and
sustaining a short portion of the
year, was dry as tinder the remainder
of the twelve months. When Lewis
and Clark led their little band across
the country between the Mississippi
and the Pacific, there were not fifty
thousand peopie living in the vast
stretch of country from Dakota to
Texas. These lived on game and only
by shifting from one place to another,
making long journeys from one wa-
tcrhole to the next; and often fighting
bloody battles for the possession of a
little spring that would rot be noticed
in the east. When the pioneers came,
