Forest Area of Canada.
Canada's forest area has been
variously estimated at frum eight
hundred million to three hundred
million acres The latter is the
lutesl estimate, and was given
by Dr. B, E Fernow, thu recently appointed Dean of theFaculty
of forestry al the University of
Toronto     He is nne nf the   best
authorities on forest subjects on
the continent, and for years was
head of the United Stales bureau
of Forestry. His estimate, he|
thinks, "will cover the com
aiercially valuable liiuberlnnd
area, actual anil potential.' Al
this estimate the forest area of
nf Canada is "not much more
than one-half of tho commercial
forest area of the I'niletl Stales."
Mr. It. II. Campbell, Superintendent of forestry for the Dominion Governmenl, gives a
rather large estimate. Ile has
calculated thu foresl area of the
Dominion of nboul 5115 mil lion
acres, divided as follows:
Acres

Typewriter
has widened its market until it includes the whole civilized world; has become the
typewriter of over 300,000
operators and has, during
1906, broken every previous
record of sales, because it
has from the beginning best
met every typewriter need.
THE tri-color feature of
the Smith Premier
Typewriter is recognized as the greatest Improvement in modern typewriter construction—yet in
providing it, none of the
strong fundamental features, for which the Smith
Premier has always been
noted, have been sacrificed.
