CHRISTMAS TREES COMING
Fifty Carloads Will Be Sent
from the Adirondacks.
(By T-legrapli to Tli? Tribune ]
Watertown. N. Y., Nov. 2.'?.-Fifty
carloads of Chrlstmaa trees for the
marketa of New York will leave this
section of the Adirondacks during the
present week. Kach car will earry ap
proxlmately seven hundred of the ever
ffaaaa for Chrlstmas decoratlons. An
embargo recently laid on piniferous
trees shlpped into New York from other
states means that a large shure of the
evergreens wlll come frorn Northern
New York.
The sections whlch furnish the
greater part of the trees shipped out of
this country are on the slopes of the
hllls to the north. A llttle branch road
runnlng to Copenhagen will furnish
nearly half the trees. P-.ints toward
Wanakena and along the road to Utica
will furnish the rest.

This. a.eording to the Servian states

This minimum is declared to be
