Prosperous and Their Samlicn Have Doubled In Thirty Years. > Those who believe that decadence is the heritage of the American Indian would do well to study the Navajo tribe. In lS?S it numbered 12,000 souls. To-day. through natural increase and not through immigration, almost entirely without admixture of other blood, there are 22,000 Navajos. Every individual tribesman appears prosperous. Many of the bucks are rich, even from the standpoint of the white man. It is j roughly, though conservatively esii- j abater that the tribe has 1.000,000 sheep, ( 00.060 head of cattle. 300,000 goats and ! horses in such numbers as almost to ; defy enumeration.

r TBE FOREST RESERVES IDEA Platforms of Both Political Parties Proclaim in Favor of Separate Department to Look After and Preserve the State's Timber. Two political platforms in Colorado contain a declaration favoring the cre? ation of a State department of forestry. '\ his. if carried into effect by the Leg? islature, will notably benefit both the State and forestry, since the general welfare of Colorado is peculiarly de? pendent upon the rigid care and pro? tection of its forests. Almost one-third of the total area of that State, or 33-? 500 square miles, is woodland, of which about 20,00(1 equare miles are covered v-Uh valuable timber. This is chiefly pine, although cedar, hemlock.-spruce, fir and other species are also found in merchantable si-/e and quantity. But 4lie greatest value of the Colorado for? ests is in their promotion of agricul? ture through irrigation. Already there are nearly 2.000,000 acres of farm lands under irrigation, but great stretches of country are siill...
