."MONSTER REDWOOD TREES, i
trhaj CompoM a Hott Remarkable TUnTM
One of the most remarkable timber
belts in the world 6tands in Humboldt
find Mendocino counties, California. It
embraces tltj square miles, contain
ing 132,000,000,000 feet of timber. With
the aid of the microscope scientists have
found the age of some of these trees to
be nearly 3,000 years. Some cf tha
fallen trees have remained where they
fell for 800 to 1,000 years, so it is esti
mated, with scarcely any deterioration
of the wood.
Eastern tourists in California know
but little of these redwoods (Sequoia
sempervirens). They usually see the
few mammoth redwoods of Calaveras
(Sequoia gigantea) andgohoine and tell
their friends about this disappearing
trtbe of giants. The lumber redwoods
of Humboldt are less talked about, yet
one of its trees will yield 100.000 feet ol
boards, and fill a freight train with
Felling these trees, which are 150 to
250 feet high, is a line art acquired only
by the most expert chopper. He must
have excellent judgment as to tho
"lean" of the tree, and other peculiari
ties which may affect the direction of
itsfall. He drives a stake 1 on or 150 feet
from the base of the tree, and prepares
a level bed in a direct line from base
to stake, and on that line the tre
must fall. An ax kerf is then 'jiade or.
the side where the tree is to fail. The
apex of the obtuse triangla made by
this kerf points exactly to the distant
The tree is cut one-third through
with the ax. On the other side of the
tree, opposite the ax kerf, a saw kerf is
started. This is done by boring two
holes horizontally and driving in wood
en pins on which the 12 to 20-foot saw
rests until the kerf is sutliciently deep
to steady the saw. I'.road. thin iron
wedges are driven in after the saw to
prevent the doomed tree from pinchfng
it. At each end of this saw "ears" are
bolted on. which can be removed ind
the saw withdrawn in ease of troubl.
Wedges are made to follow the saw
until the wood dividing the saw kerf
from the axkerf is narrowed toa width
where wedgcaean be made to force tha
tree, with ail its great weight, to lean
in the direction in which it is to fall.
The tree is toppled over, and soexaot
is the chopper's work and calculation
that almost invariably the falling
trunk drives the stake aimed ct when
operations were liegun. Any error in
the fall of the tree is likely to cause
the tree to !reak and cost the lumber
man more than the chopper's wages
for the month $123. These virgin for
ests are so densely timbered that, if
cleared at once, there would not be
room enough on the ground for, tha
trunks. "Peelers" follow tht, choppers.
With long steel bars, flattened at one
end, they pry off the thick bark and
burn it. Then comes the cross-cut saw
man. who cuts the tree into logs.
These are transported to the saw mills
by rail, cut into boards and chipped to
Redwood is so trie from reinons
matter that it will not burn readily.
When fired it chars. The immunity
from lire of towns built of redwood
lumber is remarkable. Large confla
grations are unknown, 'this lumbor
shrinks so very little that it is used by
builders in a green state. The beauty
of the wood for Unfailing work is
marked, as it frequently has a vurly
face an. 1 also a bird's-eye grain. This
redwood promises to oca popular wood
in the eastern states. Uston Tra",l-

recently for himself, his wife and his

full discharge of his personal, interest'
in the Cherokee strip came ne-ir losing
pvery dollar of it before ret iirnin'

was exceptionally heavy two very spec
ulative recipients were standing to
gether near the post office. A boy was
seen coming along the street on .1
bunking pony. For so your.g a boy ha
held hi- scat well, but it seemed ex
ceeding probable to the onlookers that
before he got the pony home he would
either be thrown or would have to get
off. The two" Indians di-cusscd the
proposition with much excitement, and
finally one man bet the other the en

boy would be thrown before he got
The bet was accepted with vicioas
eagerness, and as they watched tha
antics of the pony as it whirled round,
bucked, sat down on it haunches, and
did everything else that was ever
known to a trick horse, they almost
came to blows in the excitement of
their argument. Finally the hor.-;s
