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 material.

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 eyes. 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-' graph. Mr. Kdlon Mat with hi head bowed upon hi hand. There cume the clear notes of the beautiful song, Wo Nome," from Kigoletto.

Only the eye could discern that Miss Verlefs lips were not moving. The Kdlson Diamond Disc was U (ring alone. Then a grciUcr volume hut only a greater volume Miss Verlet Joined her voice with the singing of the Kdlson Diamond Disc. Two voices -exactly the same two u ere singing together. No one among the SOO could tell which was the more clear or distinct, or more full of feelini;. The song volume decreased. Tlie ear heard but one voice. The eye must tell again. Miss Vei let's Hps were moving. It wu she who was Kinging. I me were lit up with surprise even with amazement a modem miracle was hapjMwilng Just before them. 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 nature ithelf. It waa the artUt In all but form. The Kdlson haa no tone of Us own. It Is a perfect vehicle for the re-rreai iimi ui wic i voire or instrument.
