Sinking Chnrccml nn Imunrliuil In
Time win when the entire nun
tin! yield of tunny Kuropcnn forests
was devoted to no worthier purpose
than the making of charcoal for use
ns fuel in iron or glass smelting
works, liut nowadays good forest
timber can generally be put to
better purpose, and, although in
some places charcoal burning still
flourishes on' n large scale, the in
dustry, strangled by coal aud coke,
has been steadily diminishing in
The best site for a kiln is one
that has been used before the
ground is thoroughly dry and is
covered with absorptive charcoal
The kiln usually consists of two
tiers of wood, one upon the other,
placed as straight up as possible,
the smaller pieces inside, the thick
er pieces in the center and the
smaller pieces again toward the
outside. When two stories have
been piled up in this way more
wood is laid hor&ontally across the
narrow top. This kiln is gradually
shaped like a dome. All openings
are then carefully filled in, in order
to prevent unnecessary drafts, and
the whole is made as firm as poss
ible. A passage is now constructed
from the outside of the kiln to the
flue in the center, or a log of wood
which has been placed previously in
position is drawn from under the
bottom tier, leaving a hollow kindl
ing passage, in which, when the
kiln is completed, a torch may be
inserted to set fire to the shavings.
Now the important work of
covering the kiln is commenced.
Supports of various kinds are placed
in position to save a collapse under
the weight of the coverings, of
which there is both an inner and
an outer. The kiln is first tiled, as
it were, with thin sods, overlapping
each other. Then the outer cover
ing is applied, consisting of loamy
forest soil and charcoal dust, well
mixed, and firm enough to exclude
air and retain the heat, and as the
same time soft enough to allow
steam to escape, and .to yield with
out cracking, as the kiln gradually
sinks during the burning.
Nothing remains but to erect a
wind break, if necessary, before
burning the kiln.
Early in the morning, when the
air is still, a torch of pine is insert
ed in the passage before mentioned,
and the flames seize hold of the dry
twigs and shavings in the flue.
At first, when the dome becomes
hot, steam and thick smoke issue
from the top; if all is well, the
smoke should give way to flame,
and a not unpleasant, pungent odor
should be noticeable. This is a
sign that carbonization is in pro
gress. After a few hours charcoal
will form in the dome, which will
gradually sink in.
Should the sinking be irregular,
it is a sign to the charcoal burner
that the kiln is burning; unevenly.
There is too much draft from one
quarter, or too little in another; or
some of the wood in the kiln is
burning quicker than other pieces.
This state of affairs must be reme
died by boring draft holes or ap
plying water, as the case may re
quire. On the second day after kindling,
the first vent-holes are made.
These holes, bored through both
coverings down to the wood, in
two rows to leeward, help to regu
late the burning, and also give in
dication when the carbonizing pro
cess nears completion. At first,
smoke aud steam issue through
them and after a while the smoke
turns blue, which is a sure aud
certain sign that the charcoal is
burniug, and this, of course, is the
last thing the charcoal-burners de
sire. The holes must be closed
immediately with soil or turf, and
a fresh row opened lower down the
