THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1913.
Man Who Watches Kilauea Seeks
As the earthquake which took
place on October 25 was the heavi
est shock which has been felt since
the establishment of the observatory
at the Crater, Professor Jaggar and
his staff are eager to make use of it
for the purpose of securing as much
general data in regard thereto as
it is possible to get
The shock was probably felt all
over Hawaii and on at least some
of the other islands as well, and
Professor Jaggar states that he is
eager to receive reports from all
points in the group. He wants
reports from persons who were
in a position to observe what hap
pened at their locality at the time
the shock occurred, no matter
whether much or little happened.
As a matter of fact, paradoxical as
it may seem, for the scientific pur
poses for which the data are wanted,
reports from the places in the Isl
ands where little or nothing at all
happened, or where the shock was
not felt at all, are of particular
value. The main thing is to get
an idea of the. extent to which the
shock was felt.
"We want to get an idea of the
distribution of earthquake inten
sity,' ' said Professor Jaggar. "What
we learn from this will be valuable
to us when later on we distribute
simple observation instruments at
various points on the island. f
While Professor Jaggar was in
Costa Rice he was engaged in
gathering material similar to that
which he now wishes to receive.
In that country the government
assisted him by sending out broad
cast circulars containing the ques
tions which the Professor wanted
In the present case Professor
Jaggar believes that the same ob
ject can be accomplished through
the newspapers, and he is therefore
having a set of questions published
on every island, hoping that there
will be found on every one of the
inhabited islands some people with
sufficient interest in science to in
duce them to send to Professor
Jaggar the data he needs. The
questions follow at the end of this
article. Professor Jaggar asks that
those interested will cut out the
list of questions, paste it on a piece
of paper and write out the answers
on the space opposite each question.
Here are the questions and the

(27) Persons of scientific, train
ing who receive this are invited to
write here a complete brief descrip
tion of phenomena observed:
Squirrels collect much of the
seed used for planting by the for
A growing scarcity of willow,
generally used for wooden shoes in
Europe, is leading to an adoption
Torrey pine, a distinct California
species, has been found in only
two isolated localities in the south
ern part of the state.
One hundred acres on the Flo
rida national forest will be sown to
maritime pine seed this fall. Mari
time pine is the source of the
French turpentine industry.
San Francisco recently received
its first cargo of lumber from the
Tongass national forest, Alaska.
The shipment consisted of 1,500.
000 feet of Sitka spruce.
Three native species of larch
furnish furnish timber in the Uuit
ed States. One grows in New
England and the lake states, an
other in the Pacific northwest, and
the third in the high mountains
of the northern Rockies. Europe
an larch has been planted exten
sively in the prairie states.
The white marble of which the
great $2,000,000 Lincoln memorial
temple is to be built on the banks
of the Potomac in Washington is
to come from the Sopris national
This is said to be the first great
building in the east to be construct
ed of this stone, known to the
building trades as Denver marble,
though much of it has been used
as an interior finish in public build
ings. In the west a notable exam
pie of its use is found in the new
federal building at Denver.
While the marble quarries are in
the midst of the national forest,
they are on private land secured
under the laws by which areas
bearing deposits of building stone
are disposed of by the government.
Under the law, prospectors can
locate and secure title to mineral
deposits on the national forests just
as they can on the open public
domain. The marble company
which owns the quarries is a large
user of national forest timber in
the working of its properties, situat
ed near Marble, Colo.
The history of the company is
said to be of considerable interest,
as representing indomitable enter
prise against difficulties. The
country in which the marble de
posits occur is extremely rough
and precipitous, and for a long
time was inaccessible because of a
lack of transportation facilities.
before the stone could be got out
and brought to market. Up to
1907, when the product first began
to attract attention, it is said that
$l,200.0u0 had been expended in
developing the property.
In this country beech is the
favorite material for wooden shoes,
the manufacture of which has
reached considerable proportions
in the United States accordinng to
the department of agriculture,
which has just issued a bulletin on
the use of the wood. These shoes,
the department says, cost from 60
to 75 cents a pair and are good for
two years. They are worn by
those who have to work in cold or
wet places, such as tanneries, bre
weries, and livery stables, and by
workmen in steel mills and glass
factories who must walk on hot
grates or floors. ' Farmers, too, are
clossed among the users.
Beech wood is put to a very
much wider range of uses than the
average person would be likely to
suspect. The department says
beech enters into hundreds of arti
cles from hobby-horse rockers to
butchers' blocks. We walk on
beech floors, eat off beech picnic
plates, carry beech baskets, play
with beech toys, sit on beech chairs,
and in dozens of other ways use
articles made of beech almost every
day of our lives. Its freedom from
taste fits the wood especially for
articles which come in contact with
foodstuffs, and beech meat boards,
skewers, lard tubs, butter boxes,
sugar hogsheads, refrigerators,
dishes, spoons, and scoops are
Only one species of beech grows
naturally in the United States, but
but few trees in this country have
a wider commercial range. It ex
tends from the Gulf of Mexico into
eastern Canada, and in practically
every place where it grows it is cut
for market. The total yearly out
put of beech wood in the United
States is approximately 500 million
