Secretary Lane Calli Attention to
! Value of Big Public Play
! grounds Owned by Nation.
ASKS MONEY TO BUILD ROADS
i WASHINGTON. Dec 17 fPldal.)
Secretary Lane. In his forthcoming an
nual report, calls attention to the na
! tional parks as a valuable and undevel
oped asset of the country. He says:
I The United States furnishes play
grounds to the people of this country
I which are. we may modestly state, wlth
'out any rivals In the world. Just as the
1 cities are seeing the wisdom and the
; necessity of oen spaces for the chil
' dren, o. with a very large view, tho
nation has been snvlng from Us domain
1 the rarest places of grandeur and beauty
I for the enjoyment of the world.
And this fact has been discovered by
many only this year. Having an incen
tive in the expositions on the Pacific
coast, and Europe being closed, thou
sands have for the first time crossed the
continent and seen one or more of the
national parks. That such mountain
and glaciers, lakes and canyons, forests
ind waterfalls were to be found in this
j country was a revelation to many, who
I hud I eard but hnd not believed. It would
j appear from the experience of this year
j that the real awakening si to the value
I of these parks has nt last been realised,
j and that those who have hitherto found
i themselves enticed by the beauty of the
Alps end the Khlne and the aoft lovell
jness of the valleys of France, may find
I equal If not more stimulating satisfac
' tlon In the mountains, rivers and valleys
' whlc'i this government ha et apart
1 for them and for all other.
! It may reconcile those who think that
; money expended upon such luxurle la
wasted if any such there are to be told
; t! at tho sober-minded traffic men of the
railroads estimate that this year more
than 1100,00,000 usually pent In European
travel was divided among the railroads,
hotels, and their supporting- enterprise
, In thi country.
j New Parle la Colorado.
I During the year a new national park of
distinction and unusual accessibility ha
come Into existence. It crosses the
Rockies in Colorado at a point of su
preme magnificence; hence It title, the
Ttocky Mountain National park. Throug-h
it, from north to south, winds the Conti
nental divide the Snowy range In name
and fact. Two hundred lake grace this
rocky paradise, and bear and bighorn in
habit its fastnesses. It ha an area of
3S0 square mile and lies only seventy
mile from Denver. Many hotels He at
the feet of these mountain and three
tailroads skirt their side.
1 This Is Colorado' second national park,
; the other being Mesa Verde, where thl
' department, with the assistance of Dr.
' Jesse Walter Fewke of the Smithsonian
Institution, has uncovered during the last
summer prehistoric ruin of unprecedented
' scientific interest.
Oregon has but recently completed a
great highway along the Columbia river.
This should be connected by road with
Mount Hood and a portion of the present
forest reserve converted Into a park. The
limit of Sequoia park. In California, the
home of the great, redwood, should be
o extended as to Include the Kern River
canyon, a most practicable project today;
.but tomorrow may be too late, because
of the lumber interest. The Grand can
yon Is not yet part of the park system,
s although as part of a national forest It
: comes under the control of the Depart-
! merit of Agilculture.
Shoold Be' Available for All.
1 There 1 no reason why this nation
should not make its public health and
1 scenic domain as available to all Its cltl-
' sens a Switzerland and Italy make
theirs. The aim Is to open them thor
oughly by road and trail and give access
and accommodation to every degree
of Income. In this belief an effort ha
been made this year as never before to
j outfit the parks with new hotels which
should make the visitor desire to linger
rather than hasten on Ills Journey. One
hotel was built on Lake: McDermott, in
, Glacier park, one is to be built Immedi
; ately on the shoulder of Mount Rainier,
in Paradise valley; another in the valley
of the Yosemite. , with an annex high
overhead on Glacier Point, while more
modest chalet are to be dotted about in
the obscurer spots to make accessible the
rarer beauties of the Inner Yosemite. For
I with the new Tioga road, which, through
the generosity of Stephen T. Mather and
I a few others, the government has ac-
quired, there ia to be revealed a new
! Yosemite, which only John Muir and
j others of similar bent have een. Thl U
a Yosemite far different from the aulet
J Incomparable valley. It la a land of for
ests, snow and glaciers.. From Mount
I I. yell one looks as from an island, upon
: a tumbled sea of snowy peaks. It lakes,
many or which have never been fished,
are alive with trout.
Great Game Preserve.
While a the years have passed we
have been modestly developing the su
perb scenic possibilities of the Yellow
stone, nature has made of it the largest
and most populous game preserve In the
western hemisphere. .It great size, its
altitude. Its vast wildernesses, Its plenti
ful waters. It favorable conformation of
; rugged mountain and sheltered valley,
I and the nearly perfect protection afforded
j by the policy and the scientific oar of
me i,un:iiiiiiriH iwvb mane mis park,
since Its inauguration In 1873, the natural
! and Inevitable center of game conserva
tion for this nation. There ia something
I of slgn'flcance In this. It Is the destiny
or the national parks, ir wisely controlled
to become the public laboratories of
nature study for the nation. And from
them specimen may be distributed to the
city and state preserves, a 1 now being
done with the elk of the Yellowstone
which are too abundant and may be later
with the antelope.
If congress will but make the ftmds
available for the construction of roads
over which automobiles may travel with
safety (for all the parks are now open
to motors) and for trails to hunt out the
hldde;j place,) of beauty and dignity, we
may expect that year by year these park
will become a more precious possession
of the people, holding them to the further
discovery of America and making them
stUJ prouder, of It resources a well as

JVyrUSICAL history was made a short time ago at
1V1 Orange, New J ersey.
At the laboratories of the New Edison Diamond Disc
Phonograph, 300 phonograph experts were witnesses to '
an epoch-making experiment.
When the test was done, the entire gathering agreed as
one a modern miracle had been performed before their
Three factors predominated.
Alice Verlet, the famous Helglan prliua donna, whom European
musical critics have hailed as the "New Queen of Kong."
The New Kdison Diamond 11hc Itionograph.
And Thomas A. Kdtanit. He alone knew of the revelation to come; of
the human olce with all Its range. Its weetneMg, it mellowneM, Its
sympathy and pathos, coming from the Instrument he had created.
Miss Verlet atod beide the New Kdlson Diamond IMkc lliono-'

her voice with the singing of the Kdlson Diamond Disc. Two voices

The pl'onoirrnph and the lady continued their duet to the end. En.
thiislusiii, alinoat unbounded, ran through the audience.
The Supreme Test toat passed.
Quickly these men realized that there liad been given to the world
a new Instrument which years of endeavor had made so complete
that even "perfect" failed as a descriptive word.
They could not detcrlbe the tone of the New Edison. It waa not
Miounh to call It "human, life-like, natural." No more could thev
dcNCi'tle a beautiful rose tin "true to nature." This New Edison waa
