stumbled across today almost accidentally
put me to thinking. I read it over and
over again. "'We profoundly regret that
we have in the management of our cor-
porations and business violated," and so
forth. There it was in plain english, "We
have in the management violated"-and
then it flashed over me like an electric
shock that these men who had confessed to
violating a federal statute in the manage-
men of their corporations, had only recent-
ly by design and for the purpose of em-
barrassing if possible a movement for the
salvation of a great industry, attempted to
fasten responsibility for these confessed
violations of law upon the shoulders of
innocent individuals, whose influence they
are now trying to impair.
And then any sympathy that the sug-
gestion of a "confession" might arouse as
quickly turned to disgust. The world
hates a coward; a decent man has only
contempt for the individual who will at-
tempt to justify his own crimes by point-
ing an accusing finger at othawbhL are
innocent. And thus it is, said I to myself,
when S. P. Shotter and Cooper Myers and
their associates resort to libel and slander
in an attempt to fasten even the slightest
responsibility for their own actions or co-
operation with them upon Walter F.
Coachman, C. B6 Rogers and United States
Senator Taliaferro, it is but another illus-
tration of the depths that men will some-
times resort to in the desperation of their

Whe-e are we going? What does our

our troubles? Pouring a tale of woe and

results. They must have evidence to sub-
nit to the committee, in support of our

Mr. Coachman then continues: "The

You know, there is something pathetic
about a confession. We scan the headlines
of a morning newspaper, for instance, and
we see where some fellow has confessed
something and we almost sympathize with
him although the poor devil, it is probable,
should be severely punished and possibly
hung for his crime. It is just natural for
us to allow a confession to have a soften-
ing influence on our hearts. That is all
there is to it. It was this confession made
by Mr. Shotter and Mr. Myers, this ex-
pression of "profound regret" that saved
the violators, possibly, from a jail sen-
tence instead of a fine at the time. "An
honest confession is good for the soul,"
it is said, and a confession goes a long
ways with a court.

4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Decent People Repudiate Methods That
For the past three weeks turpentine ope-
rators throughout the pine belt, even
woods riders, commissary clerks and still
hands, have been flooded with copies of
the Savannah Naval Stores Review, the
house organ of S. P. Shotter and asso-
ciates, in which a campaign of attacks on
Walter F. Coachman, C. B. Rogers and
United States Senator J. P. Taliaferro is
being conducted by the Shotter interests
in a desperate but most contemptible de-
sign to impair, if possible, the usefulness
of these gentlemen in furthering plans for
the protection of the naval stores indus-
try from wreckage by despoilers.
The corporations forming the present
American Naval Stores Company, famil-
iarly known as the turpentine trust, and
now under indictment for violations of the
federal statutes, were the controlling
forces in a holding company organized in
1902 known as the Atlantic Investment
Company. At the time that company was
organized negotiations were in progress be-
tween the Consolidated Naval Stores Com-
pany, also just organized, on one side, rep-
resenting the producers, and the S. P.

its management, not even as directors.
and were not responsible for any overt
acts of commission or omission that might
have been committed by its managers, the
Shotter associates. It is a noteworthy
fact. however, that during this time the
Atlantic Investment companyy was con-
ducted along legitimate lines and from
conditions that exitsed then, it is likewise
true that it was conducted in the interest
of natural trading, a condition that is the
acme of fairness in all business, of neces-
sity satisfactory to producer and con-
When conflicting interests forced Messrs.
Coachman, Rogers and associates to retire
from the Atlantic Investment Company
the conditions began to change rapidly. In
less than two years after that time S. P.
Shotter and some of his associates found
themselves, as individuals, indicted for
managing the affairs of their corporations
in violation of law, and to this charge they
entered pleas of guilty and were fined in
the Federal Courts of Georgia. In their

resenting the buyers, whereby the Con-
solidated's receipts were to be bought at
the closed ports on a flat basis of Savan-
nah's closing market. Pending the closing
of these negotiations, conducted by the
Consolidated in the interest of its cus-
tomers, the Shotter Company and the Pat-
terson-Downing Company insisted that the
new Atlantic Investment Company should
take over the good will, business and
stocks of the then existing Standard Naval
Stores Company, a Jacksonville selling
company, originally organized as an auxili-
ary to the Florida Naval Stores and Com-
mission Company, which had a short time
before been merged into the Consolidated.
Heavy stockholders in the Standard Na-
val Stores Company were' Messrs. Coach-
man, Rogers and Taliaferro, the stock-
holdings being practically tile same as in

the court it receiving a fine sentence in-
stead of a prison sentence. They paid
their fines, returned to their offices, took
up the reins of their affairs, and every
reader of the Record knows the result.
For months manipulated markets have
worked hardship and wrought ruin and
destruction upon the producing end of the
naval stores industry. And once again
these same defendants in a former indict-
ment-self-confessed violators of law in
190--stand indicted in the federal courts
of (eorgia on even more serious counts.
In view of these facts and the arbitrary
anl alleged illegal methods of this buy-
ing monopoly. it has been found advisable
to organize a naval stores marketing com-
pany to compete with the Shotter combi-
nation, the American Naval Stores Com-
pany. and active and satisfactory efforts
by throwing their own careers and their
violations of law and order brazenly into
the limelight of public scorn in a mean and
cowardly attempt to shift even a "minor-
ity" of responsibility ulon the shoulders
of innocent men.
Decent people-and the readers of this
paper, as a rule. thank Heaven, are decent
people-resent such methods and will hurl
back into the very teeth of these self-con-
fessed violators the indictment that they
make against the intelligence and the man-
hood. not of the three men whom they have
selected das targets, but against every na-
val stores producer, worker or consumer
who believes in the reign of justice. in the
rule of Fairness.
FORESTRY IN JAPAN.
Just at the time when this country is
beginning to struggle with the problem of
husbanding its forest resources, of pro-
tecting its mountain slopes, and of improv-
ing the waterways, it is interesting to
know that the Japanese have successfully
attacked the same problem, before the
land suffered severely from the evil effects
following deforestation. The far-sighted
people of Nippon have foreseen the re-
sults of the destruction of their extensive
mountain forests, and have safeguaided
themselves by placing all of these under
The practice of forestry has been carried
on in Japan for a longer time than in any
other country. For 1,200 years the people
of Japan have been planting and growing
forests, with a success that has been a
little short of marvelous. Under careful
management, the Japanese forests yield
very high financial returns. This high
yield is only made possible by the close
utilization of every bit of the tree so that
scarcely a twig is wasted, and by the im-
provement of the growth of their forests
by carefully conducted thinning and tend-
i lg. The woods are first thinned at the
age of thirteen years, and then every
five years after that up to the time of the
final harvest, at 120 years.

Vinxant & Albrecht Will Distribute This
Popular Spring Water.
So great has become the demand for
Lackawanna Spring Water that arrange-
ments have been made by the Lackawanna
Spring and Hotel Company for this water
to be distributed exclusively in Jackson-
ville and nearby territory by the enterpris-
ing Vinzant & Albrecht Company, the well-
known wholesalers and jobbers.
The Vinzant & Albrecht Company will
distribute Lackawanna Water in Jackson-
ville, Fernandina, St. Augustine and as far
west as Live Oak and as far south as Ocala.
The reputation of Lackawanna Spring wa-
ter has speard to such an extent and the
demand for it is increasing so steadily
that a carbonating plant will be put in at
the spring, where the water is bottled, and
this plan will be in operation within ten
days or two weeks and then the carbonated
water will be ready for city delivery or
shipment anywhere in the country. All or-
ders for the water in this city or nearby
territory can be sent to or telephoned to
the Vinzant & Albrecht Company, and
will receive prompt attention. The fact
that this progressive company has taken
over the distribution of this water insures
prompt service and it also insures bigger
sales than ever of Lackawanna Spring
Water, for two salesmen are to devote
their time exclusively to this business in
the territory secured by the company.

CYPRESS MEN TO MEET.
Call For the Southern Cypress Manufac-
turers' Association to Convene at
Savannah November 24.
The following call, addressed to the
members of the Southern Cypress Manu-
facturers' Association, will no doubt re-
sult in a large attendance at the meeting
in Savannah on November 24, especially as
the greatest automobile races ever held in
the South are to take place in Savannah
on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Novem-
To All Members.
The semi-annual meeting of this asso-
ciation is hereby called, to convene at Sa-
vannah, Ga., Tuesday, November 24, 1908,
and to continue for three days. The gen-
eral program of the meeting will be issued
later, at which time the exact meeting
place, headquarters, etc., wil be named.
Every indication points to a very im-
portant meeting, as there has not been a
convention of cypress manufacturers since
May. A large number of important prolo-
sitions will be up for discussion, which
will need a full and comprehensive gath-
ering of cypress manufacturers. It is the
desire also that all manufacturers of cy-
press be present, whether or not they are
members of this association, and all such

Rightly used, they go on producing crop
after crop indefinitely. The countries of
Europe know this, and Japan knows it;
and their forests are becoming with time
not less, but more, productive. We prob-
ably still possess sufficient forest land
to grow wood enough at home to supply
onr own needs. If we are not blind, or
wullfullly wasteful. we may yet preserve
our forest independence and, with it, the
fourth of our great industries.
"Present wastes in lumber production
are enoraious. Take the case of yellow
pill. which now heads the list in the vol-
ume of annual cut. In 1907 it is estimated
that only one-half of all the yellow pine
cut during the season was used, and that
the the other half, amounting to 8,000.000
cords. was wasted. Such waste is typi-
cal. Mr. R. A. Long. in his address on
Forest Conservation' at the Conference
of governorss last spring, pointed out that
20 per cent of the yellow pine was simply
hlft in tlhe woods -a waste which repre-
sents the timber growing on 300.000 acres.
"The rest of the waste takes place at
the mill. Of course, it would never do to

virgin forests there are very many trees
which have reached maturity and stopped

READ THE RECORD.
Every naval stores operator and every
person directly or indirectly interested in
the naval stores industry should read the
Industrial Record every week. The Rwc-
ord is the official organ of the Turpentine
Operators' Association and can he relied
upon to keep its readers thoroughly posted
in regard to the industry.
Every business firm or corporation carry-
ing supplies used in the naval stores in-
dustry or in the lumber industry should
patronize the advertising columns of the
Industrial Record, for an advertisement of
such supplies in the columns of this jour-
nal will reach the persons needing them
quicker than through any other medium.
The end of the calendar year is fast
approaching and the Industrial Record
hopes that the year 1909 will be the most
prosperous in the history of the naval
stores and lumber industries. It hopes
that every naval stores operator and fac-
tor and every person engaged in the lum-
ber and timlier industry will become a sub-

will decay far more rapidly than if out of

which are relatively low in cost, such as

To this end a careful study will be made

THE BUSINESS OUTLOOK.
Ten days have now passed since the gen-
eral election and the country has settled
down to the peaceable pursuit of industry.
There is a most brilliant prospect of im-
provement in business in every line and
this improvement will continue until nor-
mal conditions again prevail in all indus-
One of tlhe most commonly accepted in-
dications of prosperity is the freight car
situation, or rather, the reduced number of
idle cars. Up to October 14, the report
of the car efficiency committee of the
A.nerican Railway Association, the latest
available figures, showed a decrease in net
number of idle freight cars to 101.837
This is a great improvement over the sit-
iuation at thie clrse of last April, when the
niunler of idle cars was reported as 413,-
(tHI. In fact. the imlprovenent is even
greater than it seems, for there las been
a great decrease in the number of bad-
or!der cars. as the railroads have been re-
pairinlg their incapacitated ears and re-
turning them to service. This naturally
increased the numlwr of idle cars, but the
car situation is now rapidly approaching

FORESTS OF THE SOUTH.
The timber resources of the South are
among its most valued possessions. The
large to those who have not studied this
feature of the wealth of this great section
and are not familiar with the numerous
varieties of timber which the South has
extent of its forest growth is surprisingly
available for manufacturing purposes.
There is scarcely a branch of the wood-
working industry which the South cannot
supply with the best of material, and for
which it does not offer exceptional oppor-
tunities for the location of plants. This
industry is a large and growing one, and
for years will continue to increase, as the
South has practically unlimited supplies of
timber which it is guarding more carefully
every year. and from which will come in
future generations a large proportion of
the manufactured material of the country.
In discussing the advantages of the South
in woodworking materials, Mr. M. V. Rich-
ards. land and industrial agent of the
Southern Railway Co., lately said:
"In the seven Southern States traversed
by the Southern Railway, and having a
combined ared of 203,191.400 acres, there
we're but (1 ,308,65(i acres reported by the
census of 1900 as improved farms. The
larger part of the remainder, or about two-
thirds of the total area, was covered with
timber of some kind. The great proportion
still consists of virgin forests.
"People of other sections are just begin-
ning to appreciate the importance of the
great timber and mineral wealth of the
South, the full development of which, with
its varieties of other resources, will make
the South one of the richest and most
productive regions of the United States."
The Florida Exposition-Fair Association
has announced that an exposition is to be
held in Jacksonville for 60 days, January
20th to March 20th, 1909.
The co-operation of every county in the
State is invited. Every county in the
State should be represented. The Duval
Board of County Commissioners has
pledged its support. No charge is to be
made for space for county exhibits. The
counties can arrange their displays to suit
their Board of Commissioners, who, no
doubt, will see the great advantage to be
derived from keeping up a fine exhibit,
where it will be seen by the thousands of
visitors who will attend.
Dade County has already accepted the
invitation to place its exhibit. This will
no doubt be one of the best and will prob-
ably contain a greater variety of fruit and
vegetables than that of any other county.
The Vegetable Union shipped 4 cars of
celery to date. They will move about 25
cars to fill orders for Thanksgiving trade,
Mr. N. W. Smith, of the firm of Smith
& lolwin. manufacturers of naval stores,
of Thorsby, Ala., writes the Industrial
Record as follows:
Had the prices of naval stores been
according to supply and demand we would
never have had 35 cent turpentine and
correspondingly low values on rosin, but
so long as there is nothing done to bring
about the trlu value of our products we
need not expect to sell for much above
the prevailing figures. The only apparent
renmely is the one the American Naval
Stores Company is tighting-the new Na-
val Stores Marketing Company, and also
the reduction of the box cut. It is the
general opinion that there will be no
boxes cut in this section this winter, and
if this plan is carried out, as adopted by
the Turpentine Operators' Association, we
will certainly see fair values again.
"The majority of men holding turpen-
tine interests bought their holdings with
the expectation of getting about 60 cents
per gallon for their turpentine and corres-
ponding values for their rosin. They fig-
ured that at these prices they could make
a fair profit on their investment. Few fig-
ured on present prices, and at present
prices .the operator is losing money every
dayv of his life. that is, when he figures
the decrease in the value of his holdings.

HOW LOW PRICES HURT ALL LINES.
(onmuenting upon resolutions adopted at
a meeting of naval stores factors and ex-
Iaorters hlel in Savannah on October 22, a
well known naval stores operator, writing
to the Industrial Record. says: "Accord-
ing to those resolutions the American Na-
val Stores Company is not in very good
standing in Savannah. This would be a
very serious matter for this company were
it not for the fact that it is to move to

"I have asked President Nash to pro-
duce the evidence of the case of Coach-

is doing this. the producers would be glad
to have him tell them whether the "satis-
factory profits" received by Coachman,
Rogers and Taliaferro on the 16 per cent
of stock held by them, came off "PRODU-
CtERS" or "CONSUMERS." We would
also like Piresident Nash to tell us who
paid the "satisfactory profits" that ac-
crued on the 84 per cent of the stock held
by Mr. Shotter and his friends. Did the
"satisfactory profits" come off the pro-
ducers of naval stores or the consumers of
naval stores, or Ibth? That is what the
producers want to know?
THE WATER HYACINTH PEST.
The water hyacinth, as everybody fa-
miliar with that pest knows, grows in
sluggish southern streams and sometimes
to such an extent as to completely ob-
struct the passage of any manner of float-
ing craft. Much trouble has been experi-
enced in this way by lumber interests
along or tributary to the Bayou Teche and
other similar streams. An officer of the
engineer's office of the army was lately
in New Orleans en route to that quarter
of the State for the purpose of ridding
the Teche of this embargo. The only ef-
fective formula is to spray the plant with
a celemical solution causing it to wither
and die. For this purpose a barge is pro-
vided and will lw put in operation over
there.-The Lumlier Trade Journal. New

FELT IN PHILADELPHIA.
The quickening touch of returning bus-
iness confidence has already made itself
felt in Philadelphia, according to the
Philadelphia correspondent of the New
York Post. Bankers tell of increased de-
mand for commercial loans and merchants
are taking steps to replenish their deplet-
ed stocks. In some lines more actual busi-
ness has been done since the election than
in any corresponding period this year. In
others, sufficient orders have been placed
to keep factories running for several
months without any further increase of
business. Everywhere there is perceptible
a more cheerful spirit among merchants
An incident which impressively shows
which way the tide is moving occurred in
a Third street banking house on Wednes-
day. A patron of the house came in, threw
a bundle of bonds on the counter and asked
that they be sold. When opened the bun-
dle was found to contain $50,000 worth of
bonds. The customer asked that he be
advanced $4-,000 on them, which was done.
The money, he declared was to be used in
developing his business and he announced
his intention of borrowing $200,000 more
for the same purpose. In this connection
a timely utterance was made by the Hon.
Leslie M. Shaw, former secretary of the
treasury. who has assumed the presidency
of the First Mortgage Guarantee and Trust
Company here. He said to your corres-
"I think we may expect a great expan-
sion of loans for commercial purposes from
now on. I know personally of many en
terprises which were held off to await the
result of the election and it will be neces-
sary to raise new capital to take care of
this new business. One deal I know of
will require a capital of $12,000,000 and
this has simply been waiting for republic
can success at the polls. The business out-
look is very bright in my opinion."
The Florala Sawmill Company, Paxton,
Fla., is putting in a turpentine plant to
utilize the sawdust. The plant will be suf-
ficiently large to operate night and day.
The day run will be on sawdust and the
night run on light wood, the sawdust ac-
cumulated from the night shift of the mill
being stored. The company has had a tur-
pentine plant in operation for some time
utilizing sawdust and finds a larger plant
The Britton Lumber Company, Lake-
wood, Fla., has completed some alterations
of its sawmill. The dry kilns have been
overhauled and enlarged, and brought up
to the underwriters' requirements by a
steel and concrete floor. The boiler plant
has also been improved. The mill is run-
ning after a period of idleness during
which repairs were being made.
TURPENTINE FIRE RISKS. 1
Insurance companies, in the United
States, are insisting on the more careful
handling of turpentine spirits. They con-
tend that the danger irom explosion and
tire is very great, and they cite numerous
instances in which very serious tires have *
broken out from the careless handling of :
this volatile liquid. It is useless to at-
tempt to dispute these contentions. The Z
fact is that great quantities of spirits of 4
turpentine are stored in barrels and tanks
at Savannah and Jacksonville without any I
heavy losses from tires. But in order to
be on the safe side, it is best to take every
possible precaution in this matter. Com-
mercial oil of turpentine has a specific
gravity of 86 to 88 and boils at 161 degs.
F., vaporising rapidly. The vapour flashes
at 100 degs. F., but does not seem to pos- i
sess the explosive or expansive qualities S
of gasoline or naptha, which are much *
heavier than the atmosphere and float t
near the floor, and are as deadly in explos- *
ive effect as gunpowder. Spirits of tur- S
pentine ignites at about 450 degs. F., burns
fiercely, and is inextinguishable with wa-
ter. Turpentine vapour is very much S
lighter than the atmosphere and is in- S
stantly assimilated 'with it, passing off
quickly. Experts say that turpentine is
not explosive, though highly inflammable
An instance is cited of a c-ase where tur-
pentine vapour was allowed to escape into
a room and became ignited from a gas
stove. The vapour burned fiercely, but
did not explode. In a case where a tank
holding a carload of spirits of turpentine
was located four feet from a paint shop
and sixty feet from a carriage factory,
the insurance companies required the own-
er to enclose the tank in concrete and brick.
Experts advised that the tank be placed in
a pit with top of tank level with the c
ground and a steep metal roof with venti-
lator over it; also that the spirits should
be run into the tank from the car through
the manhole of the tank, and, when full,
the head should be replaced and bolted
down; and that all supplies for the paint
factory should be drawn from the tank by
a pump with check valve in the pipe, so
that a fire in the paint factory could not
reach the tank through the pipe. This was
substantially the verdict of several ex-
perts who were called ulon for an opin-
ion on the fire risk in the storage of spirits
of turpentine. Oil and Colour Trades Jour-

HOW DO FOREST FIRES START?

or do withoIut it. lhi is one reason wthy
the present movement t for the conservation
of our natural resources is receiving such
Iharty vUlsort front leading men in every
walk of life. They realize, as did the
conference e of (overnors at the White
Ilouse in May. that it is a subject of
transcendent ilmportnc e. and also so far
as timber is co(nernte it is possible by
right management to nmke the forests of
the United States produce yearly all the
timns-er we really need. To bring our for-
ests up to this point, however, is a task
of such magnitude that it will require
years of patient effort and heavy ex-
pense on tihe pait ot all the large owners
of timberland, whether they be private in-
dividuals, corporations. States. or the na-
tional government. That this task will be
undertaken and carried through. no one
who has faith in our institutions and the
dilstiny of America can doubt.
( alpers and locomotives, is the usual
answer. Many of the other things which
start blazes in the forests are forgotten.
It is true that perhaps one-half to three-
fourths of the forest fires do begin as a
result of the carelessness of some camp-
er. or from sparks flying from locomotives,
but there are a number of other things
which set the woods afire.
A complete report of forest fires on the
private forests of the country and their
causes is not kept by anyone. Uncle
Sain. however, is most careful to account
for the damage done by the blazes on his
timlerland under forest administration,
aggregating about 168,000,000 acres, and
each year tlw total area burned over, the
timlwrland burned over, the amount of
timler destroyed and its value, the cost of
fighting fires, and the causes of fires are
carefully checked up. These reports are
made at the end of the calendar year, and
the announcement of this year's losses will
therefore not be known for more than two

Wood pipes made from full-sized logs
have been in use for many years both in
European countries and in the United
States. The water supply of many of the
older cities on the Atlantic Coast was for-
merly distributed entirely through such
pipes. In numerous instances they have
served for many years, and occasionally
at the present time such pipes are dug up
in the course of modern improvements and
are found to be in a very good state of
preservation. In several instances such
pipes are still in use after a service ex-
tending over a period of 50 or 75 years. At
Fayetteville, N. C., a line of two miles of
wood pipe was laid in 18-29; it is sound
and in constant use at the present time.
A large wood stave pipe which supplies
the pumps of the city waterworks of
Manchester, N. H., was laid in 1874 and
is said to have caused no trouble and has
not been disturbed since.
The pioneers of the Atlantic Coast used
wood pipes made by boring a hole length-
wise through a full-sized log. The pio-
neers of the Pacific Coast use wood for
pipes also and with greater economy be-
cause of the advantages gained by virtue
of past experience and modern manufac-
turing methods. To-day wood pipes are
made of staves so manufactured as to give
a eylilrical shape which is absolutely
uniform and waterproof. The pipes of
small size, up to 2 feet in diameter, are
made from staves of special pattern with
grooved edges and are built up in the fac-
tory. The pipe is wound from end to end
with steel wire and coated with a mixture
of asphalt and tar for preservative pur-
poses. The thickness of the staves and the
pitch of the winding vary according to
the pressure under which the pipe is to
be used. Large pipes over 2 feet in diame-
tar are generally built up at the point
they are to be used, the staves being placed
so as to break joints. These staves are
made 6 inches wide and are shaped with
plain, bevel edges, and a curvature to con-
form to the diameter of the pipe. Special
patented bands girdle the pipe and are
drawn up tight so as to close all joints.
Practically all of the wood stave pipes
in use on the Pacific coast are made of
high grade Douglas fir which has been
well seasoned. The qualities of this wood
combine the essential qualifications of
strength and durability which are neces-
rary for pipe staves. All of the staves
are made from flat-grained lumber and
the wood used is of uniform growth.
It is a well-known fact that timber sat-
urated with water and protected from out-
side influences is practically everlasting,
and. therefore, if an underground wood
pipe runs full of water for sufficient inter-
vals to insure complete saturation of the
wood, aided by the water pressure, the life
of the pipe is greatly increased. When
used above ground in contact with the air
under the above conditions, the time of
service of wood pipes varies with climatic
conditions. Ordinarily, however, the life
can be estimated at from 40 to 50 years.
Manufacturers of wood stave pipes point
out the following advantages of their
product over the more commonly used
cast iron and steel piles for water dis-
1. Wood p'pes are equal in durability to
those made from cast iron, and four times
more durable than steel.
2. Wood pipe costs one-quarter as much
as cast-iron and one-half as much as steel.
It is much more easily handle and re-
quires less labor to lay. It is easier to tap
:1. Wood pipe has greater discharging
capacity than cast iron or steel. The inner
surface of wood pipes becomes smooth
with use, whereas iron becomes covered
with large tuberculizations.
4. Wood pipes are not affected by elec-
trolysis while cast iron and steel piles are
often entirely destroyed.
5. Wood is a poor conductor of heat.
The water flowing in a wood pipe is kept
cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Water freezing in iron pipes causes them
to burst; wood will expand sufficiently to
obviate this difficulty.
Florida's General Assembly established
in 1907 a State Geological Survey. The
first annual report of State Geologist E.
H. Sellards justifies fully the legislative
action. It is contained in not less than
120 pages, but it is calculated to fasten
upon the mineral resources of Florida the
attention of investors and others inter-
ested in the exploitation of natural
wealth. In it a sketch of the geology of
the State, which is to be dealt with in
greater detail in a later bulletin, is fol-
lowed by facts about the mineral indus-
tries. Of these, phosphate mining is the
leader, its product now exceeding $6,000.-
000 in value annually. In the twenty
years since it was started the industry
has produced fully 12,000.000 tons of phos-
phate, valued at $48.000.000. and the out-
put last year was more than half of the
total output in the United States. Though
it is impossible to estimate the total
amount of phosphate in Florida. Mr. Sel-
lards is convinced that in the extent of
production and in methods of mining the
industry is still in its infancy. The same
thing is true of the brick-making clays,
fuller's earth and kaolins, all of which are
still to Ib investigated comprehensively.
Peat has been mined to some extent for
several years, and two plants for convert-
ing it into fuel have been operated during
the past year. but as Mr. Sellards points
out, the State will be greatly benefited if
the extensive peat bogs can he drawn
upon for additions to the fuel supplies.
He refers also to infusorial earths, lime.
natural cement and materials for Port-
land cement and sand-lime bricks, sulphur.
road-making materials and mineral wa-
ters. The last mentioned subject has treat-
also in Bulletin No. I of the survey, being
a preliminary report of the underground
water supply of central Florida. The
Florida Geological Survey is a welcome
addition to the State organizations. which
are contributing mightily to the material
advancement of the South.

SHORT AND ODD LENGTHS.
A Tremendous Loss in Lumber Through
Sticking to Traditional Lengths.
The faet that great waste occurs in or-
dinary lumber manufacturing, because
short and odd lengths and widths are not
used has leen mainly blamed on the lum-
lsbrman. The truth is, however, that the
lumlerman is practically helpless. He can
find a paying market only for the lumber
cut from logs of regulation length, as call-
ed bv the builders and architects. If
specifications were drawn for the sizes ae-
tually used the short logs would be in de-
mand. and the tremendous present waste
due to this cause would be saved.
in some cases as much as 25 per cent of the
felled trees are never hauled from the
woods, simply because specifications ding
to conventional lengths.
Thus, lumber in long lengths is frequent-
ly ordered for use in lengths of from one
to six feet, and yet the short lengths would
exactly and economically meet the require-
mnents cannot be sold.
An example is the case of beveled sid-
ing. "I have just taken a book issued by
a prominent architect," writes the secre-
tary of a prominent Pacific Coast Associa-
tion, 'containing about 200 designs of
houses, and on all of these designs, I be-
lieve that 40 per cent of the siding of
these hou. es is under six feet in length.
At the same time the contractor will order
lengths of from 12 to 16 feet in order to
It has always been the custom in this
country to sell lumber in even lengths
only. and our prices on lengths under ten
feet in almost any material, are from
$2.00 to $10.00 per thousand less than for
lengths above ten feet.
In cutting any kind of finished product,
such as flooring, ceiling, beveled siding,
etc.. in order to grade the lumber in an
economical manner, there is bound to be
from 5 to 10 per cent of the lengths under
10 feet long.
It is the rule with most manufacturers
to burn up all length sunder six feet, as
there is absolutely no sale for them.
While on the other hand the architect and
the contractor order their lumber in long
lengths with the idea of cutting it up into
lengths from one to six feet when placing
it on the building.
The same writer says that 10 or 20 feet
lengths are commonly specified for the
flooring of porches five feet wide. He con-
cludes by making the following estimate
of the waste occurring from this practice
of disregarding the saving of waste in
"I think the waste in our timber prod-
ucts caused by this one fact. which you
will readily see, prohibits a man from
going to the expense of taking any timber
out of the woods that he might cut into
these short lengths and find a market for,
and which gives him no market for the
short lengths that do accrue in the ordinary
manufacture of logs in longer lengths,
will easily run to 25 per cent of the timber
on any section of land."
It would be a great mistake to charge
such waste as this to the voluntary device
of the lumberman, who wastes only what
he cannot use in his business. The closer
drawing of specifications, and with more
careful regard to the possible use of the
short lengths now ignored, would not only
help the lumberman to larger profits but
greatly prolong the duration of the lumber

STILLS AT VERY NEAR COST
I have on hand a very large assortment of stills, ranging in size from ten
to fifty barrels capacity. I have put the prices of these stills down to just
a little above cost, in order to dispose of them. Copper is now exceedingly
cheap, and there is no reason why the price of stills should not be reduced con-
siderably. Naval stores are at a very low price, and I have decided to put the
price of stills in keeping with same. Watch this space for my price list, which
will be published later on. In the meantime if you are in the market for any-
thing in the still line, ask me for prices, F. O. B. your railroad station. If I
do not sell you what you want, I will make someone else sell you cheap. My

six years, the Industrial Record has stood on the firing
line in the interest of the producers of naval stores. How
well it has done its work every constant reader of the
paper can tell. "It has been worth hundreds of thousands
of dollars to the operators" wrote one friend to us. We hope
so. Of the past, however, let others speak. The future is
before us, and it means that the Record must keep its place
behind the guns. We shall not flinch.

any other concern.
If your profit depends on the quality and workmanship of your Still it is evi-
dent that you must get a McMillan Still. All improvements that have been made
on Turpentine Stills that have been worthy of the consideration of the Producers
for the last decade are summed up in the MeMILLAN TURPENTINE STILL of which
there are more in operation today than all other makes put together, and that they
are giving perfect satisfaction is shown by the ever increasing demand; because they
are built right. Possibly a little higher than any other at first cost, but your repairs
and the risk from fire is much less hazardous.
These goods are in y3ur reach from Fayetteville, N. C., Savannah, Ga., Jackson-
ville, Fla., and Mobile, Ala.
