Published by The State Forestry Association. Nothing shows more the growing attention given to forestry than the increase in the number of essays and papers like unto this, which is an address by Leonard B. Hodges. As is well known, we do not agree with much of the abstract theory thrown round forestry, and which Mr. Hodges adopts in common with so many others. But on the practical points, as developed by undoubted facts and figures, there can be no difference, and the publication of the address will on this account alone be of great value.
