of fruit boxes, etc., being mado on tho 29th
of that month. Thn machinery is drivon
by two engines of about thirty horse
power each. Of courso the business of tho
firm is much grcator now limn during tho
winter months, though a good businoss is

ory for tho cnrlom work of converting
logs into fruit boxes, baskots, etc., consists
of ono circular saw for sawing boards; at
tached is tho usual friction whcol for
drawing up tho logs on tho railway from
tho rivor ; a box machine for cutting latlio
for tho strawberry and grapo boxes ; n
plaining machlno, matching machine, two
cut off saws, and throo edging saws. Thero
is alio a drying kiln capablo of drying
3,000 feet of lumber por day.
