Figures In Wood.
Figures in wood have varleo
sources. These may be grouped in
those due to structure, those caused
by color variation or pigmentation,
and to combination of the two, says
the American Forestry Magazine.
T'hese again may be classified as nor
mal and abnormal or pathologic. By
normal is meant the natural condition
of the wood of a sound tree. In the
abnormal or pathologic are to be found
the peculiar distortions and colora
tions resulting from disease, the at
tacks of Insects and activities of va
rious agencies not a part of the regu
lar life processes of the trees.

pump. The cement spreads through
the loose ground, and on setting forms
a water-tight wall, inside of which the
shaft can be sunk without dlfficulty.
