Dry n,l Wet Timber.
A discussion is going the rounds of the
press jn to the relative strength of w et or
ilr) timber. We do not believe there is
much to lie made out of the discussion.
Some kinds of timber nre stronger when
dry, whil -other kinds are stronger when
wet or green Hut most hanl vv oods when
wet will possess more tensile strength
than when dry. Timber thoroughly sea
soneil is more brittle than when green,
and with the necessary force will break
square off, while the same timber green
will stand about the same pressure bv
Uncling more or less without breaking
Take a hickory sapling that is nlmost im
possible to bre ik in its green state, ai
though it ma) lienil double, and tlior-
oughl) dr) it, nnd jnu ma) eail) break
It almost "sqi.are off," as the l)s sa).
iso witli almo-t an) kind of timber. Do
