Brown, timber agent for the Pennsylvania system, gives some information in Arbor culture for July, about the Catal pa tree, which is worth reading, and the examples cited worth following. The following are a few extracts: There are at least two distinct varieties of Catalpa trees in digenous to the United States. We have also the Japanese variety and many hybrids. Big nonoides, the southern variety, is the most common, growing nat urally in all of the southern States and much cultivated as a lawn tree throughout the North. Owing to its prevalence, the opinions of most of us relative to, the value of Catalpa trees for cross-ties and other commercial purposes, are naturally but errone ously formed, from our familiarity with this variety, which, front its low growth and spreading habit, is totally worthless as a timber tree. Catalpa Speciosa, the native forest tree of the lower Wabash Valley, is entirely distinct; a much superior variety, and is the only form of the species which should be cultivated for any pur pose. All other forms should be avoided. In quoting from a government report it is shown that the aver age value per acre is seen from the table to be $390.21. This would give for the whole planta tion of 400 acres a value of $156,084. The Hardy Catalpa is, as a rule, a tree singularly free from de structive disease. A number of parasitic fungi grow in the living leaves where they may do consid erable harm, especially during moist, warm summers. They are rarely present in sufficient num bers, however, to cause alarm. The young twigs are rarely at tacked by any fungus disease, so far as has been determined. Root rot diseases are likewise un known. The wood of the trunk, under unfavorable conditions con sidered more in detail below, is destroyed by two fungi, both of which do considerable harm. Catalpa wood, after it is cut from the living tree, is one of the most durable timbers known. In spite of its light, porous structure it resists the weathering influence and the attacks of wood-destroy ing fungi to a remarkable degree. So far as the writer has been able to determine, none of the ordinary saprophytic wood-destroying fungi grow in Catalpa wood; in fact, no fungus has yet been found which will grow in the dead timber. This is certainly a very remark able fact, and worthy of the utmost consideration. After long exposure to weathering influences, which may mean twenty to thirty years and more, portions of the wood do change and crumble away. To what these changes are due it is difficulty to say at this time. It may be that the al ternate wetting and drying of the wood fibers, causing expansion and contraction for long periods, finally bring about changes in the fiber. These changes are so small, however, that for practical pur poses they can be disregarded. There is now no longer any question as to the long-lasting of this wood. Engineers who em ployed the wood in railway con struction in southern Illinois and Missouri, many years ago, when the original groves of Catalpa trees were still standing, were well aware of its valuable prop erties. In an interesting pamph let Mr. E. E. Barney brought to gether, in 1878, a large number of letters testifying to the long life of Catalpa wood. These testimonials might be augmented to-day by hundreds of others, but it is not considered necessary to do so here, for no one doubts this fact at this day. Mr. J. P. Brown, a Civil En gineer on the N. O. and N. E. Railroad, says of the Catalpa: 1. It is the most rapidly grow ing tree in America that possesses economic value. 2. A greater quantity of val uable wood may be produced upon a given area in a specified time than for any other American tree. 3. The wood is the most en during of all our trees. 4. It succeeds over a greater range of territory than any other valuable tree of this continent. 5. Its habit of growth is up right with long trunk, where it lias an opportunity, thus differing from all other forms of Catalpa. 6. The chemical constituents of the wood are so resistant of decay as to make expensive artificial wood preservation en tirely unnecessary. 7. The roots are strong, vigor ous, large and deep, holding so firmly to the earth that storms do not blow them over. I never found a Catalpa to be blown over by the wind. 8. It is less subject to disease and attacks of insects than any other tree of my acquaintance. Only one worm, the Catalpa Sphinx attacks it, and that is easily controlled by spraying, while the trees are never seriously injured by the Sphinx. 9. The wood has the same texture as butternut, firm enough for tie purposes and holds a spike well. 10. For inside car finish it is admirably adapted, partakes of high polish, has a handsome grain and is a superb wood for furniture and inside finish. 11. It is easily manipulated with edge tools. 12. Its strength is ample for all requirements in railroad work. It has been demonstrated that the Catalpa tree does well in Mason Valley. Some years ago Henry Wood procured a number of seeds and planted them on his ranch north of town. They grew rapidly, and he now has a good sized grove of these trees. They grow more rapidly in this section than any other tree, make a fine tree for shade, and have beautiful, fragrant blossoms. As an orna mental tree for door yards they have no equal, and in three years from the seed produce a tree from io to 12 feet high and from 3 to 4 inches through. The farmers of this valley would add much to the appear ance and value of their farms and homes if they would plant these beautiful trees on their premises. Of course the Catalpa needs some care for the first year or two, the same as any other tree, to be made to grow and thrive, but there is no tree that can be grown here which will afford so much satisfaction as the Catalpa. August Number New Idea. A series of articles on “Home Gymnastics,” by Alberta J. Cory, Physical Director of the Harlem Young Women’s Christian Associ ation, is to be inaugurated in the August number of the New Idea Women’s Magazine. “Fashions in Mourning,” illustrated with drawings, showing the present vogue at its best; and “Dressing the Hair,” with photographs of the smart new coiffeurs, are feat ures of the fashion department for the month. “The Chafing dish in Summer,” by Eleanor Marchant; “Healthful Summer Drinks,” by Julia Harries Bull; “Summer Viands,” by Margaret Hall, are some of the numbers on the August menu in the de partment of Good Housekeeping. The design and plans for “A Village Chapel,” by Frederick B. Freeman, will interest the people in small communities where funds for public building are limited. Timely articles and good fiction make the literary part of the book unusually interesting. Ely citizens think the Sheriff allowed the two horse thieves to escape who were recently con fined in the county jail. MININGpppI FORTY-THIRD YEAR. £ l\ Ik. > 48 P*fca l Veekly l Illustrated.
