4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Brightest Outlook for Florida is Indicated for
the Current Year
On January 1rt the Industrial Record
began through its representatives in all
parts of Florida a systematic effort to
learn the conditions existing in Florida
at the beginning of the new year, with a
view of giving to its thousands of readers
in all parts of tile Inited States and es-
pecially to the trade, the industrial, busi-
ness and financial outlook of the State.
Replies to our letters have been slow,
but as a rule they show that the writers
have given careful attention and have
based their replies more on the local con-
ditions of their respective sections, than
attempting to give us a resume of the trade
andl industrial conditions existing for any
considerable part of the State.
In every respect the letters have been
extremely encouraging. They have dem-
onstrated that Florida has fairly started
out on the new year with everything
bright and without a distressing or even
a mitigating indication for the eleven
months which are to follow.
For the past five years, during which
time the people of Florida have been ex-
periencing the greatest prosperity in their
history. and the State has been progress-
ing in every industry and in every branch
of trade to the utmost, the business men
and those who have been engaged in the
greater industries of the State. have been
Cautiously awaiting the time when there
would come a turn in the road. When the
indications in the North of last fall point-
ed to a mild reaction, there were a few
in Florida who feared that it would affect
this State. Some were positive in their
expressions of opinion to this effect. but
tlhev have seen enough during the past
five weeks to convince them that Florida
i' in better shape as she has crossed the
threshold of 1106. than she was at tlhe
same period last year. The farmer- ap-
pear to be confident for the future, the
manufacturers of lumber are more so. and
the naval stores operators express them-
selves as confident that the present good
prices for their prodeuts are to prevail.

are to be constructed in various parts ot
tle Sea Island Cotton belt, and they are
exlwcted to have their effect on prices. In
the meantime thle farmers. through those
who have been asked to investigate their
coeiflition. say that they have plenty in
store and anr very hopeful for the results
of this year's labor.
Rains Retarded Lumber Output.
Conditions have Ieen poor during this
winter for the sawmill men. This indus-
try appears to have suffered to a great
extent on account of the unusual rains
which have retarded the getting of logs
to tlhe mills. Sone of the larger mills in
the State have been forced to shut down
for a part of the time on this account.
But thle prices have been high and it is
evident that while retarding the output.
tlie rains have inllienced to a marked de-
gree the advances in prices. The new
year has started out witlt bright prospects
for this industry.
The naval stores operators are (cniidclnt
that the industry is on a more solid and
even a lmore substantial plane than hereto-
fore and they are disposed to express in
their letters th e greatest confidence for tlhe
present year. if the operators will stand
together ill 1( 0 as they have during tinh
Ipreceding years and lie in a position to
take steps in unison for the good of the
indusltr. A teindenc of the letters re-
iv"ed from tile operators is to urge co-
operation. Ten of tlio ie who have ansoer-
ed the Iiie'tions proIiIIoundidiI by the RIc-
ord. have added post scripts to the effect
that they fear that. the operators are he-
conling lax ill their organization, and ask-
ing lite Itlecord to urge tiat tt hey show a

SUMMARY OF THE SOUTHERN IRON
-AND STEEL MARKET.
The first month of the new year in the
southern iron and steel trades has been
most satisfactory and the prospects are
exceedlingly bright for a continuation of
the conditions. The year came in witli
a number of orders on hand for iron for
the first quarter at least, and during tlhe
month there has been a steady selling of
the product. delivery to be made during
the second quarter, and even later than
that. The statement is made ihv several
nlannulfactiirers that there lhas lih.n ,i con-
.sidernllt(e amount of iron sldl foi- deliv-
ery after March. and that if 1lh. huilliness
holds up as well in Febriuary as it did in
.Inuary there should not lie much of a
desire to sell for the second qIuarter le-
liverv. The shipments arc very active.
Efforts are being niade to ship every ton
of iron possible before March l-t. ;as on
that date the advance of twenty-five cents
per ton is made in freight rates. \\Wiile
this advance does not appear to lie vry
extensive on its face. as a general propo-
sition there is considerable complaint
against stchi an advnanee lIing. ni-e-c-ary
at all. All iron that can ble delivered now
is being rushed forward anil as a conyr-
kluence there is a steady demand on the
-ailroad for cars.
Southern furnace complanies arc paying
some attention to their raw material Ip-
plies. There is no doubt as to the re-
sources in th:s direction. lut the develop-
ment is li'in" improved some and the
larger companies now announce that when
plans under way have been pushed -.ome
the-e will be no aplorehension whatsoever
as to the needs at the furnaces being miet
with all ease.
Th1ring the la'-t half of the month the
cast iron pipe mlanlfarcturers have been
purchasing Dig iron for future use. These
industries have a nmlber of orders on
hand and others in prospect, and to lie pre-
nared for all eimerrency these industries
have been in the iron mart. Tt has been
demonstrated that there is not likely to
be any reduction in the quotations and for
thait reci l ;Isn any iron tli t -alln ih piir-

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 7
In a recent issue of the Florida Agricul-
turist. published at Delaund. is found the
following references to one of tile builders
of a great industry for Florida:
"Mr. S. V. Hough of Charleston, S. C.,
came to Live Oak ten years ago, and has
been in Deland two years. Mr. Hough's
father was a riee grower and turpentine
operator, and Mr. Hough knows the tur-
pentine business from A to Z. Mr. IHough
is a far-seeing man and lie has long known
what others now begin to recognize-that
the necessity for husbanding the turpen-
tine resources is a very vital one. In order
to do this lie has given his mind to tlhe
development of a means of economizing
the distilling of turpentine. lie now has
patents pending for a method of distilla-
tion which will save from five to fifteen
per cent of the present product, and pro-
* duce it with greater economy. It has been
remarked by many that turpentine men
are aI curse to thle country. A coinversa-
tion with Mr. Hough would satisfy these
men that it is actually a benefit. Setting
aside the fact that the turpentine interest
brings much money into the community,
enlivening all channels of trade, there is
no doubt that if all this timber were re-
moved and nothing further done with these
lands it would be a disaster to the coun-
try. but the drift of pilpulation, which has
formerly gone westward, is now turning
South. Lands which Mr. Hough boxed for
turpentine in Suwannee county ten years
ago, are now covered with thrifty farms.
Mr. HIough not only sells l.indl to small
farnmer- who have a little capital, but lie
has gone into conllunlities where there hla
been actually nothing doing, ihas built
houses for those who hadl no neans, fur-
nishedi them with seed, and promoted their
interests in such a way that now thriving
communities, raising cotton and grain.
sheep, hogs and cattle, occupy the lands
where once stood the pine forest.
"Mr. Hough has about fifty thousand
acres of land which lie confidently believes
will be profitably used in the near future
for strawberries and vegetables gardens,
peach o-rchards, Japan persimmons, plums,
vineyards of grapes, ant at suitable ele-
vations, oranges and grapefruit.
"He is much interested in the possibili-
ties of pecans, and thinks that every
young farmer should have a small grove.
Large tracts of his land lie will endeavor
to settle with men who wish to devote
their attention to raising horse's, cattle,
hogs and sheep.'"
WILL GO TO OCILLA, GA.
The many friends of .Mr. John lenderson
of this city will regret, to learn that lie
will leave next week for ( illa .(.a.. where
lie is to Iot-oine associated with his brother.

The lack of logic in some persons sel-
doni appears ill a. more striking manner
than in certain Ipopnlar fallacies on the
subject of fruit-eating." says The lolme
Advocate. "There are thousands of menn
and women who are within easy re.ilh of
orchards and fruit gardens, or of fruit
stalls, Nwho sit down each morning to a
heavy, greasy, flied breakfast, which taxes
their digestive organs to the utmiiost. Alany
of tlhei never take fruit at all except in
the form of pie.
"Tlie hahlit of serving fresh fruit in the
morning hias never Ieen formed in their
faniilie.. possibly because fruit has not
seelled easy to get except in the silummer.
'Vet -even in the count ry, where there are
no fruit markets, there arc few families
wholi do not have -a hnrr)l or two (if apples
in their cellar in the winter. No Iotter
lius could l ie midel of tlie-e iaplple than to
-i-erve the at breakfast. 1Tliey are list
ra'w, but for those who iann(it easily di-
gest uincioked fruit they might e Ihakedl
oiir made into apple-sauce.
"Anotlher rea.il fior the neglect to serve
fruit at tallehi is that s4oie sl ecial kind
of fruit has di-aigreed with oinl or more
nmelhers of lthe flamilv. This. of course,
is not sulli ient rleas.ii Instead f banlish-
ilg fruit, thie lI titer \%av would 1e to dis-
cover what kinds niayv lie aten with iim-
pllnity. and to use thliose.
"Those who sutfer from rheumatism or
loult need a plentiful allowance of acids
furnisi'hed lb nialni kinds of fruit. For
these people especially apples are invalu-
ablle. There is no reason why they should
not lie ciiokied so long as tlhe are not made
into pie. iinor is tl ere anythlini poisonous
inl a well-iadeh pie; litu. mnedicinally, fruit
is better ill its simple state.
"O'ii;cs l-,are -llionii tlie iilost useful of
fruits and when eaten freely tend to cor-
re1ct Inany sllhig.ishi odily conditions. The
snialler fruits -ei-rrents. strawll-rries.
raslpberries aind si on-l- agree with some
people and not witli others, and must hIe
adapted to each case.
"li'erre are people wlho cannot eat lit(
niore acid red fruiits without suffering from
a rashI or oilier disiturbance. But of or-
anges. grapefritit. pealies. apples. pears
and grapes. it is safe to say that nost peo-
ple would gain in health ihy making one
or the other of them serve each day for
an entire mneal."
Tlere is no other section of tle U'nited
States where Ipeple can procure frlslh fruit
in abundance every mntionti in tile vear. and
at such dreasonablc rates, as in this tropi-
cal section. There ir scarcely a week in
the fifty-two that fresh fruits of some
kinds cannot be found in our markets. For
six to eight months luscious ripe strawber-
ries are obtainable. and during the summer
andI fall months tropical fruits are in the
nlarket in quantities. In this tropical
country the Creator has provided fruits
Sfor the almost continued use of man; also
fresh vegetables nnay tie obtained almost
every month in the year. The meat eat-
ing- habit is a relic of the cold countries
and should lie discontinued as much as pos-
silile in this warm climate. Nature's own
food. whichil may lie provided in abundance

8 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
GREAT STRUCTURAL TIMBERS OF
The study of tile structural timbers of
the Pacific coast was begun by tile Bureau
of Forestry, now the Forest Service, in
ItH13, in order to determine with greater
accuracy the exact scope of their commler-
cial use. At that tine the only labora-
tory in the \est suitably equipped for
work of this character was that of tilhe
University of California. Accordingly, the
first testing station was established there,
and the programlme then prepared has
leen steadily carried out since. Keen in-
terest and hearty cqiperation have greatly
aided the work. Tile lumber mills of tihe
coast have furnished all the timber needed;
railroads and steamlhip companies have
given free transportation for the test na-
terial; and tile Ulniversity of California
has contributed thle use of its iwell-equip-
ped testing lalojratory and a supply of
In this tirst series of experiments the For-
est Service lhas aimed to determine the me-
chanical and physical pIrolerties of tim-
bers used in buihlinigs. bridges and other
structures where strength is called for.
The test specimens have been selected
from the mill and the lumber yard, so
tlat they might le representative of the
timber in actual use.
The tests cover all grades of the prod-
uct. from clear, straight-grained sticks to
inferior pieces containing such knots and
other defects as are found in common and
second-grade timbers. By this means it is
possible to establish hoth the liability of
timbers to contain season checks, knots,
windshakes and other similar defects, and
the precise elect which these will have oni
the strength of the timbers. Tie knowl-
edge thus obtained enables the engineer
or architect to design timber struclurtes
with safety and economy, and, in addition,
provides a reliable Ibais for the inspection
and grading of the product of the mills.
A variety of factors enter into the pre-
cise determination of the strength of tin-
Ihrs. In dealing with full-sized structu-
ral timbers it is necessary to know tlhe
rate of growth of the specimen, its weight
ler cubic foot. and the stage of seasoning
which it has reached, as expressed in mois-
ture -ontent. To check these determina-
tions. tists are also made on small select-
ed pieces, cut from straight-grained. large
heanms. free from defects. so that the re-
lation which these factors bear to tihe
strength of tlhe tinmlr may be analyzed
and problems attacked simply and di-
Thie red fir and the western hemlock
have hitherto monopolized the tests. Red
tir. whose merits have Ilong been recognized
in the PWes-t. standss without question first
in importance among the structural tim-
Iers of the coast. Lightness, strength and
durability are its distinctive valuable qual-
ities. and the fact that it can be obtained
readily in sticks of exceptional size with-
out defects greatly enlarges its utility.
In recent years its introduction to the
eastern market has made rapid strides
The results of the tests confirm conclus-
ively the exceptional merits of this tim-
Western hemlock has not been readily
received in the market. Chief among the
obstacles with which it has had to cope is
the similarity of its name that of the
eastern hemlock. whose poorer qualities it
has unjustly been held to share. Though
large (quaniities of the timber are cut and
sold. they are marketed under fictitious
names, such a as shington pine. Alaska
pine, and gray fir. for under its own name
the western hemlock has even now no mar-
ket standing. Yet the results of tests
already show that. though it is not so
strong or serviceable as red fir or Jong
leaf pine. its structural value compares
favorably with that, of loblolly or Virginia
pine. and that it therefore deserves to be
marketed on its merits. The effect of
publishing reliable information in regard
to the mechanical proprt;es of this timber
by the Forest Service will he to encourage
its legitimate use and to remove existing
preildices against it.
During the T.ewis and Clark Centennial
Exposition at Portland. Oregon. a testing
station was operated in connection with
the forest exhibit of the Government and
tests of structural timbers of large sizes
were made daily. At tile close of the ex-
riosition the machine wan reinstalled at
Eugene. Ore.. where the University of
Oregon has equipped a testing plant es-
lecially to ciolrprate with the Forest Ser-
vice in this work. and special investiga-
tions to determine the effect of knots on
the strength of red lir are heing carried oin.
At Seattle. W\\ash.. the State ULniversitx
liha also c-inipleted a testing laboratory.

noniential. however. wnas the output of the
lirst hall of thle year that the e-timtatied
ortial p l idclion troin the mines is greater
for I)ll.3 than tfor Dn)(14. The demand for
high-grade rock at advanced prices has in-
creased iand tlle sales of the year lihave
therefore been greater tlan usual. Proh-
ably not lets than half of the increased
hlipitrenits were made at the expense of
stock carried over from 190, with the re-
silt that the stock now on hand in Florida
and ready for shipment is reduced to t he
lowest point reached in six years.
Prices during 1905 have been g(xod, and
on account of the rapidly increasing Euro-
pean demand they promise to lie even bet-

25 to Sit cents a ton more than in 1904.
Ther value able deposits of high-grade

ltce more rock than is needed for the ac-
tual reqiireinents of their trade. The in

Thie men are divided into gangs for
boxing, clubbing anlld hacking. Tile box,
which is necessary to hold the drip of the
crude tur leltine. is a huge gash made in
the tree by the workmen, who use what
is called a Ibx ax. They then use a club
ax for cornering. This cornering makes
a hollow guide for the drip of the sap to
go into tie Isix. During the first year

Every week a man goes around among
iis crop of trees, which may comprise
from eight to ten thousand and chips a
gouge-shaped cut. The instrument used
is called a hack, and the workmen become
very expert, soinetiiies making a crop in
fronl three to four days. and having the
remainder of the week for their own
amusenlln'lt and recreation. Very natural-
ly the turpentine business is a favorite
work with the negroes. They are very

their joy in life by yells and calls to dis-
tant co-laborers. Those who are studying
thle negro problem in its different phases
'hiuld certainly visit a tiurentine farll.
Tleir income ranges from five to ten dol-
lars a week.
This chipping makes what is called a
stjl.ak. and it takes four streaks. or four
weeks' work to till the box at the foot of
the tree witli crude turpentine. Then it
is ready to dip.
The dipper is a peculiarly shaped imple-
ment to pry annd lift out the turpentine
illto a lmke.t which is albeit the size of
a nail keg. Tle contents of the bucket
are turned into a barrel and carted to the
still. which mav lie from one to ten miles
away. When there are from ten to sixteen
barrels the still is filled with the crude
turpentine and capped. Heat. is then in-
trlouced beneath. and if necessary a little
water is added. The heat drives the vapor
out of the crude product and into a con-
denser. where tile hot vapor nleets a worm
,or coil or copiler. which is filled with cold
waltr. The vapor is condensed into spirits

ARMOUR'S PRIVATE CARS AND THE
Yoiu anl't Irealize how the big shippers
and ti e railroads have been making the
public pay the freight, and how far their
attacks against sinall competition have
gone until you have read hay Stannard
haker's fourth iilntalment of "The Rail-
rn:ads on Trial," in tile February Mc-
hiire's. Noii..d would blame you for not
believing it \\it'hout the proofs which Mr.
I aker gives 'y-u. This article deals with

wha;tex er for refrigerator cars pay 500 per
cent inore for icing charges than they did
w\hen the railroads were permitted to at-
tend to their Ibusiness as common carriers.
It tells how Armour played the men who
evolved the idea of refrigerator cars
against .ach other. ruined them financial-
ly. alid gobbled their business hungrily.
Ilt Armour \was pot satisfied with this.
There were some .American citizens who
hailn't felt his rod )iscriminations from
thi< railroad w\\ere not enough. He wanted
ore thlian to iha\e his prodtlucts carried,
in defiance of the law chealpwr than any-
inOdy else's. and he wanted the profits the
railroadsl themselves were getting from the
stmlller shippers. The railroads were, for
the lost part. helpless, Mr. Baker points
out. There weren't nany of them that
