Not illustrated. 1868 edition. Excerpt: ... of Sorub, having been specially reported on by Dr. Brandis, need not be referred to. A few reserved jungles of Hardwickia Binata may probably be maintained in the Chituldroog district. In the wooded parts of the division, the demarcation of the reserved forests will demand great care and experience. I hope the Conservator may succeed in doing away with advances to wuddars, but I doubt it. Fuel plantations should receive attention. 3. Nundidroog--In this division the formation of fuel plantations seems to be of the utmost importance, and the more so as little response has been made to the liberal terms held out by the State to private individuals.

I have no doubt that the valuation surveys recommended by Dr. Brandis will be highly useful. I observe that a good deal of jungle wood is now brought in by the department for sale. 2.

As regards para 71, I question whether it will be more
