How Long is Fire-Killed Timber Com mercially ValuableT Washington, D. C, July 16. How long will timber remain commercially valuable after It has been swept over by a forest fire.? Timber land owners as well as the federal government are much interested in obtaining this in formation, and the government has just begun an investigation of a large number of fire areas in Oregon and Washington in order to determine if possible, the length of time which will elapse after a forest fire before the timber deteriorates to such a condi tion as to decrease its commercial value. The agencies which cause timber to decay and encourage the attack of wood borers are undoubtedly In fluenced to a greater or less degree by the intensity of the original fire and the climate conditions and altitude of of the burned areas. All the information in connection with this Investigation will be optain ed first hand by the forest service, either from government timber land, or from private holdings where log ging operations are under way. I In this connection the forest service has also undertaken an investigation to determine the relative strength of green and lire-killed timber. The ma terial which Is to be tested is being sawed at the mill of the Eastern and Western Lumber Company of Port land, Oregon, where it will be surfaced to exact sizes and then transported to Seattle, where tests will be made in connection with the forest service exhibit at the A. Y. P. exposition. The fire killed trees which are to yield material for these tests were se lected by representatives of the for est service on the holdings of the Clarke County Timber Company of Portland, Oregon, near Yacolt, Wash ington. This timber was burned over seven years ago and represents fairly well, the average of burned timber found in the Pacific Northwest. The logs which vary from three to four feet in diameter, were sawed into thirty two foot lengths. These are being manufactured into sixteen foot joists and bridge stringers. The results of these tests are being anticipated with great interest by for est service engineers and by the lum bermen of the Northwest, because they are expected to disapprove the opin ion generally held regarding the strength of fire killed timber.

Spokane, Wash., July 16. Presi dent Taft has been chosen by the traveling salesmen of the Pacific Northwest to "open the grip" at the interstate fair in Spokane the week of September 20, when he will be their guest. This ceremony is to take the place of pressing a golden button. The invitation was extended by Congressman Miles Poindexter of Spokane, and W. P. Edris, chairman of the executive committee of the traveling men's club and postmaster elect of this city, has received ad vices that the president will formally open the fair in person. A citizen's mm Laxative Fruit Syrup SOLD BY ALL DRUGGISTS- committee, headed b David T. Ham, and officers of the Spokane chamber of commerce and the one hundred and fifty thousand club are arranging for the President's visit, and from the plans already made it may be taken that the chief executive will know when he reaches the heart of the In land Empire. It was expected that President Taft would attend the 17th sessions of the National Irrigation Congress in Spokane, August 9 to 14, but as he will not start on his west ern trip until September 15, the earlier visit is out, of question. It is likely there will be more neonle j from various parts of the northwest gathered together in Spokane during ' the President's stay than have ever i been here on anv nthpr occasion, nnf excepting former President Roose velt's visit, several years ago. 2.500,000 SALE OF TIMBER Capitalist Buying Back the Identical Lands He Sold at Profit Two Years Ago.

Blackwell of Spokane, president of the Idaho & Washington Northern Railway Company, has acquired 30, 000 acres of white pine and other woods from the Menasha Woodenware Company of Wisconsin. It is esti mated by cruisers that there is 600, 000,000 feet of saw timber on the land. Charles R. Smith, president of the selling company, began buying stump age in the district seven years ago, paying 50 cents a thousand feet until four years ago, when the price ad vanced to $1. He Is now selling his holding at $:.75 a thousand feet.
