SCARCITY OF LOGS,
Much Anxiety Among Mississippi
Valley Saw Mill
LACK or EAIS IS THE 0AFSX.
Not Enough Water in Tributaries
to Drive the Timber to
There is some anxiety on tbe part
of the saw mill men in the Mississippi
valley relative to the possibility of
shortness of logs this summer. The
fact of the matter is. that it is possi
ble that tbe mills will be compelled to
close down for want of them. How
ever, there is hope, at least, that
there will be rain enough in tbe north
to break the landings, and carry the
logs to the booms.
In the north the drouth this spring
was considerably exaggerated as com
pared with this section of the coun
try, and there was not enough water
in the upper Mississippi and its trib-'
otaries to enable the lumber com
panics to "drive" the logs into tbe
booms. The Cloquet Lumber com
pany, located at Cloquet, Minn., will
be compelled to close down for
want, of legs though at one landing
upon the St. Louis river there are
3O.L00.000 feet of logs and at one
landing on the Cloquet river 25,
000,000 feet. These rivers, it should
be undersood, are tributary to Lake
Superior. However, practically tbe
same condition exists on the upper
Mississippi and its tributaries, and
as a result the booms of the St. Croix
at Stillwater were closed down Friday.
Minneapolis mills, which commenced
late, have beeen running only part of
the time and the chances are that they
will be compelled to shut down en
tirely. . The ordinary mortal does not, as a
rule, understand tbe situation in the
north. The logs are cut many miles
from the booms, where they are raft
ed, and oftentimes miles and miles
from the tributaries leading to the
b'omi. In the latter instance they
are now-a-days hauled by rail to tbe
nearest tributary where they are
dumped into the tributary, the point
of dumping bfdog called a "larding."
When tbe spring freshets come, the
logs are carried away, and this is
called "breaking the landing." The
logs are then "driven" loose down the
tributary many miles away, and at a
point wbere steamers may come for
the rafts. In these booms they are
assorted, rafted and made ready for
their longer trip to the mills below.
Roada Into Plnerlea.
The Clcquet Lumber company is lo
c'ated'upon the Cb.quet river 13 miles
below tbe junction of tho St. Louis
river with that stream. Recently the
Cloquet Lumber company had con
structed 27 miles of railroad directly
north from the Cloquet river into tho
Eineries to the north The road was
uilt a year ago last December. Not
a rail had been laid nor a spike driven
Dec. 1, and Jan. 1 following, the ro.d
was hauling logs. Daring the first
winter it hauled 10,000.000 feet cf
An interesting feature of lumber
railroading is tbe construction of tbe
spurs in the winter time which line
tbe depths of tho timber which line
the right of way. If it is desired to
clear away an 0-acre tract a spur is
laid upon tbe snow. Suow is used to
tamp around tbe ties, and after this
is done water is poured over it and
allowed to fresze. Tbe track is oed
during the winter and before the
break-up comes in the spring the track
is taken up. The workings of tbe
vast lumber interests of tbe north are
of the deepest interest, and are prba
bly less understood than almost any
other line of employment.

TURNS HER FATHER ASIDE.
Adale luteal e. Now a Prima Ponaa. Daalaa
Sitting with bis elbows on the rail
ing of the balconv at the performance
of -The Belle ot New York," Wed
nesday evening, was an old man, with
bent shoulders and lonjr. iron-grey
bair, says the Rockford Begister-Ga-zctte.
He waited with impatience for
tbe ringing-up of tbe curtain and
then, when the gorgeous scene was
revealed to him he scanned the faces
in tbe lime light for one familiar and
dear to his aged heart. He waited
and waited until the grand sweep of
tbe orchestra and the guruling notes
of the chorus paved the way for tbe
entrance of tbe star. The old man
was not a regular attendant at comic
opera, but when the prima donna ap
peared on the stage he found the face
he had been looking for. The old man
was Ed Ritchie, of this city, and tbe
prima donna was his daughter. Miss
Adele Ritchie. During the evening
the old man did not once take his eyes
off the stage, and when nis daughter
was "on" hs followed her every move
ment with the keenest delight.
The bad part of the incident is yet
to be told. When the company ar
rived in Rockford Ritchie attempted
to seek out bis daughter, whom he
had not seen for years. He bad fondly
counted on tbe visit and for days tbe
thought of the reunion had tilled his
mind and heart. The old man found
it next to impossible to find the
whereabouts of his daughter, and
when he did she refused point blank
to see him. She did not know him.
The old man seat a request for a
couple of tickets to the performance,
but the daughter saw nothing but im
pertinence in tbe request. With tbe
swagger members of the company
Miss Ritchie was ashamed of her hum
ble origin and turned her bick upon
