It grows only .when surround

habit the lumberman is describing
when he says that from to 40 per
cent of given timber stand is the
best that spruce shows. It likes the
sun fog from the Pacific. Ocean, and
grows to valuable size only in scattered
belts where the fog comes regularlv.
Lastly, only about thirty five or fur
ty percent of the wood in the trunk
has the strength, toughness, and re
siliancy that nirplnm struts and spurs
require. It takes special machinery
and special handling in hundreds nl
mills, small and large, to get out thi
t hirty five percent.
t isn't practical or possible, the
lumber operators rind, to take out the
spruce unless surrounding trees are
also removed. All the logs are im
mense in sie, and it takes railroad-,
motor trucks, or donkey engine caldcs
to inoi c them. Working out the prnb
lem means that to get the JS,0(i(i,0n0

handling of at least 100,000,00(1 feet

ITALIANS REJOICE
in Kome yesterday the Italians
jubilantly celebrated the Austrian
disaster and during the celebra
tion a despatch from the front
was received that the Italian
troops had surprised and had
wiped out the forces occupying
an advanced Austrian position.
Austrian reports seek to be op
timistic, telling nothing of re
verses but claiming repulses of
the Italians. Yesterday's official
from Vienna said that the Ital
ians had failed in their efforts to
cros-. the l'iave, their boats hav
ing been shot to pieces and heavy
losses indicted and that an at
tempt to storm C'olle del Rosse,
between ' the llrenta River and
