VALUE FROM STUMPS
By means of an apparatus describ
ed in the current issue of the En
gineering Record, the stumps of
trees left after logging operations in
leaf pine timber lands have been
converted from a source of expense
into an asset The device is in the
shape of a hood that sets over the
ctump and distills as much as seven

"Oh, don't get your hammer out!"
said Judge Wells. "That won't get
"No!" affirmed Fred, who agreed
with the court.
"You will pay $27 immediately or
go to jail for contempt of court,"
said the judge to Fred. "
The smile of approval faded from
Fred's face. "If you'll give me until
Saturday I'll pay her $40," he of
fered. The offer was accepted, but Fred
did a little figuring and brought it
down to $36. The judge agreed to let
him go until Saturday, and if $36 is
not paid then he goes to jail.
