DON'T SHIRK.
I know not whence I came.
1 know not whither 1 go.
But the fact stands clear
That I am here
In this world of pleasure and woe;
And out of the mist and murk
Another truth shines plain,
it is in my power
Each day and hour
To add to its joy or pain.
I know that the earth exists;
It's none of my business why
I cannot find out
What it's all about—
I would waste but my time to try.
My life is a brief, brief thing,
I am here for a little space;
And while I stay,
1 would like, if I may,
To brighten and better the place.
The trouble, I think, with us all
Is lack of high conceit;
If each man thought
He was sent to the spot
To make it a bit more sweet,
How soon we could gladden the world,
How easily right ail wrong,
If nobody shirked
And each one worked
To help his fellows along.
—Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
PAPA, WHAT WOULD YOU TAKE FOR ME?
She was ready to sleep, and she lay on
my arm,
In her little frilled cap so fine.
With her golden hair hanging out at the
edge,
Like a circle of noon sunshine;
And I hummed the old tune of Banbury
Cross,
And Three Men Who Put Out to Sea;
When she sleepily said, as she closed
her blue eyes:
" Papa, what would you take for me?"
And I answered: " A dollar, dear little
heart."
And she slept, baby weary with play,
But I held her warm in my love-strong
arms,
And I rocked her and rocked away.
Oh, the dollar meant all the world tome.
The land and the sea and the sky.
The lowest depth of the lowest place,
The highest of all that's high.
All the cities, with streets and palaces,
With the people and stores of art,
I would not take for one low, soft throb
_Of my little one's loving heart;
Nor all the gold that was ever found
In the busy, wealth-finding past,
Would I take for one smile of my darl
ing's face.
Did I know it must be the last.
So I rocked my baby, and rocked away.
And I felt such a sweet content,
For the words of the song expressed
more to me
Than they ever before had meant.
And the night crept on, and I slept and
dreamed
Of things far too glorious to be,
And I waken'd with lips saying close in
my ear,
" Papa, what would you take for me?"
—Eugene Field.
HOW THEY LOST THEIR HOMES
Sin Francisco Bulletin.
Through the gambling instincL
They bought things tbey did not
need because ibey were cheap.
They subscribed for everything they
could pay for on the installment plan.
Money enough went down in drink
and up in smoke to have saved the
home.
They did not realize bow easy it is
to get into debt and how hard it is to
get out.
They could not say " No," and could
not afford to tell their friends," I can't
afford it."
The sons thought they must " sow
their wild oats" as well as other " fel
lows of their set."
The daughters thought it beneath
them to work for a living, but were
boond to dress well.
They did not do business in a busi
ness way because they were dealing
with relatives or friends.
They never formed the habit of put
ting in the savings bank money which
they did not immediately need.
The extragance of children who bad
not been trained to economize or to
take care of tbeir pennies swamped
the home.
Tbe mania to make an appearance
beyond their means caused them to
mortgage tbeir property and ended in
bankruptcy.
Wben the shoe began to pinch they
" really did not see where they could
retrench." Habit bad made luxuries
seem necessaries.
They ran accounts at the store in
stead of payiug cash, did not realize
how rapidly bills were running up and
never knew how they stood.
They entertained too expensively
and a great deal more than they could
afford because they wanted people to
think they were in good circumstances.

ging Camp—lmproved Methods of Logging
and Sawing—Modern " Skidding" by Cable
—Sawing by Gigantic Band Saws—Amount
of Standing Timber.
lIY FRANK H. LAMB, IIOQI'IAM.
Extending from Alaska to the pass
of the Tehachepi in California, and
from the summit of the Cascade and
Sierra Nevada ranges to the ocean, is
the timber region of the Pacific. In
the North the forest is almost un
broken ; as we come southward into
Oregon and California, fertile open
valleys of surpassing loveliness alter
nate with the green clad hills.
Beginning at the North, the Alaska
cedar, hemlock and spruce—relics of
a forest that extends to the Arctic
Circle—give way in British Columbia,
to the Douglas fir, Western cedar,
hemlock and spruce of Washington
and Oregon. Passing into California,
we leave behind these well known
timber species and enter the home of"
tree of trees in size and grandeur—the
Itedwood. With it are associated
cedar, and sugar and yellow pines.
Perched in small groves and limited
forests high on the western flanks of
the Sierra Nevada, in the summer
bathed in eternal sunshine, in the
winter buried in mantles of snow, is
the redwood's greater sister, the Big
Tree.
For two hundred years our an
cestors have " logged" in the original
colonies; little remains of even
the great backwoods of Maine. The
lumberman, ever following close in
the footsteps of the pioneers, moved
in due course to the great pineries of
Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
In each case the methods employed
were very similar. The logs wero of
moderate size; they were cut in the
summer and either hauled immediate
ly to the mill, or taken to the river by
whioh they could be floated to the
mill. This was usually done during
the winter, when sleds could be used,
and the logs were left upon the banks
or placed upon the frozen river until
the freshets of spring should float
them to the mills.
Wben tbe lite-long lumberman was
forced to leave tbe Middle Northwest
because tbe white pine was becoming
exhausted, and go to the yellow pine
and cypress of the South, or to the
forests of the Pacific, new conditions
arose. In the South, no freezing
weather would form ice-sled roads,
and tbe timber sometimes grew in
swamps. On tbe Pacific, no forests
aided him in bis work, the timber was
found in swamps, on level ground -or
on high mountain ridges and above all
the size of the individual piece was so
great, and the weight so enormous,
that bis ordinary methods were im
practicable. New methods of logging
were, of necessity, introduced. De
cember, in the State of Washingtan,
though the latitude is that of Labra
dor, means a temperature like that of
April in the East, with sunshine and
rain following each other in quick
succession.
The logging camp is in the heart of
tbe primeval forest. Like guarding
sentinels, the great firs, from ten to
thirty feet in circumference, stand on
every side, with trunks straight and
columnar, rough, brown-checkered
bark, and limbs like stunted tress two
hundred feet from the ground. The
small blue expanses of sky showing
between them apparently rests upon
their dark green, fantastic-formed
tops. The "camps"—rough, wooden,
rectangular buildings, looking dirauni
tive in their massive setting of green—
are designated as " mess bouse" —the
diniug-room and " bunk house"—
the sleeping quarters. Grouped pro
miscuously about these are the shops,
stables and other auxiliary buildings.
Everything is temporary, everything
rough, suitably only for the rough,
strong men who pride themselves on
being woodsmen.
Work begins at break of day, winter
or summer. Soon after three o'clock
the cooks and their assistants begin
tbe preparation of tbe morning meal.
Beefsteak, coffee, fried cakes and
fried potatoes are served, with occa
sional variations. At the tap of tbe
gong the long files of half-asleep men
enter the dining-room. Tbe meal is
eaten in haste and in silence. At the
bunk houses the work clothes are
donned and the " crew" leaves in a
body for the woods to begin tbe day's
work. Nothing is so delicious, so
invigorating, as a cool, fall morning
in the woods; nothing can be so dis
agreeable, so disheartening, as to start
out on a wet, drizzling winter morn
ing, when there is still scarce light
enough to pick one's way along tbe
trail leading down by tbe " landing"
and on to the woods.
The crew steadily decreases in num
ber as it proceeds. The engineer,
OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY MORNING, FED. 17, 1905.
fireman and road men drop off first
at the road engine, located either on
the river or at the railroad lauding,
depending on whether the camp puts
its logs into a stream by which they
can be floated to market, or loads
them upon flat cars for railroad trans
portation to the mill. Here begins
the long stretch of mud, water, tim
bers and treacherous wire cables that
make up a " skid road." Such a road
is a poor thing for pleasure walks, but
admirably adapted for hauling logs on
the ground with a minimum of fric
tion. It is made by setting sections
of logs, ten feet long and eighteen
inches in diameter, into the ground
transversely of the direction of the
road, so that the upper side is just a
little above the surface. A slight de
pression is " saddled" out of the min
dle top of each "skid," as the timbers
are termed, and in this depression the
long " turns," or strings of logs, are
dragged endwise by a wire cable
wound in by engine located at the
lower end of the road. At the end of
the skid road we come to the yarding
engine. In logging parlance "yard
ing" is the preparation and hauling
the log from where it lies when the
tree is felled to the end of the skid
road. No roads arc made for this
purpose, the logs being hauled by
means of a wire cable wound upon
the drum of an engine, resembling a
pile-driving engine enlarged. Here
the greater part of the crew fall into
tbeir places. Beyond them, perhaps a
dozen men are .building an extension
of the skid road, and all we have left
are the " fallers" and " sawyers."
Let us follow these to their work
and watch them *' fall" a tree, see the
great trunks cut into long leugths,
and then follow the logunlilit reaches
the road engine down on the river.
The head faller, or " undercutter," is
a massive fellow, six feet two as he
stands on a "springboard" high up on
a grand fir tree. In large timber the
swell at the butt is very often of poor
quality; to escape this the trees are
cut from four to ten feet above the
ground. A notch is cut into the side
of the tree and the end of a board
inserted; on the spring-board, as it is
termed, the faller and choppers work.
To fall a tree ten feet io diameter
where it is wanted, regardless of its
natural lean,and to fall it so as not to
break it, demand the highest science
of the woodsman.
A V-notch is cut into the tree with
an ax to about one-third of its diam
eter, and facing the direction in which
the tree is to be felled. Then two
sawyers, taking opposite ends of an
eight-foot saw, begin to work from the
side opposite to the notch or " under
cut." When the tree begins to settle,
w«<lgea are inaarlad, Mntt wkvo it haa.
been cut off, excepting a binge oi
wood from four to ten inches io width,
the wedges are driven in with a steel
sledge until the tree is forced over in
the direction or the undercut.
Startiug slowly, then gradually in
creasing, then with a roar as it gains
momentum, snapping off smaller trees
like fagots, a monarch of the forest lies
prostrate. A mile away, the fall
sounds like distant thunder; close by
the ground shakes, and near by treeß
struck by the falling giant, wave back
and forth like reeds before a hurri
cane.
As soon as it ia down, the fallers
are upon it, measuring it off into log
lengths from 24 to 100 feet each.
Then follow the sawyers, a single man
to a cut, each with an eight-foot saw,
a bag of wedges, a sledge and an ax.
It often takes the ingenuity of the
very best sawyers to cut an eight-foot
tree, lying across some deep canyon.
Supporting timbers may have to be
placed under the tree, and the cut
made from beneath upwards, so as
not to split the tree when it parts.
The log, when cut, is " barked" on
the side on which it will ride when
being hauled over the skid road. It
is " knotted" of its limbs, if there are
any, and then " sniped" at the end
which will be in front during the
hauling; the sniping consists of bevel
ing entire circumference of log for
about six inches in depth.
Then come the "swampers," clear
ing away the brush and debris so that
the " yarding crew" can get to the log;
after that it is ready for hauling.
The " hooktender" is the master of
the yarding. Under bim are a dozen
men, each with a particular task; but
it is he who decides just which way
each log aball be removed, and the
means to accomplish this result.
The cable is usually from three
fourths of an inch to one inch in
diameter, and about 1,000 feet are
used on a yarding engine. The end of
the line, with its great steel hook, is
usually drawn to where it is to be at
tached to a log by the " line horse,"
a powerful animal, specially trained
for this work; the end of the line is
fastened to the log either by passing
the line around it, or by a pair of
" grabs"—great steel hooks, shaped so
that the harder the pull, the more
they imbed themselves into the wood
and the firmer the hold.
The line is then placed in blocks
along the way to " lead" tlie log away
from stumps and obstruct ions. At a
signal from the hooktender, the en
gine begins its work. Simple, swift,
decisive, the cable straightens out like
a rod of iron. The power of three
hundred horses is tugging away to
overcome the friction and gravity of
forty tons of wood. There is no hesi
tation; theengiueer throws open the
throttle and the log begins to travel.
Another signal—the log is stopped;
the line is thrown out of a guiding
block, and again the travel begins.
What demons these logging engines
are! Simple, compact, strong, sub
jected to every form of abuse and over
work, yet always ready. The hand of
the engineer on the throttle lever is
the only governor. The log may hit a
stump; if the engineer or hook tender
is quick it may be foreseen; if not,
either the line or its attachments are
broken. Danger is everywhere. Stand
away from that cable! A tap of it
under such tension cuts like a bar of
iron! Flying pieces of wood or broken
books are liable to strike you a dozen
paces away!
At tbe akid road the logs are coup
led into turns of three or more; the
endless cable of the road or landing
engine is coupled to them, and they
begin their journey over the road to
the landing, sometimes two miles dis
tant. The road engine is more power
ful than the yardiog engine, but works
more slowly and sedately. At the
landing the logs are branded with the
owners' exclusive mark, and are ready
for the " drive."
Nothing can be more thrilling, ex
citing and more dangerous than a
drive on a swift " white water" stream.
Some rivers provided with systems of
dams and sluices, can be " driven" at
any time of the year. When natural
water is depended upon, the drive
must wait until the freshets of winter.
The dams are built in narrow places
in the river bed, and are from twenty
to fifty feet high. Gates are provided
through which the logs are run, the
foaming water flows over the sluice
with a roar of a Niagara, and tears off
down the rocky chasm of the river be
low. The log is but an atom in such
power. Carried along in the midst of
foam and spray, and driven with the
speed of a train, it finally reaches the
quieter waters of the wider river below;
there it moves along more leisurely,
and, alas, often " bangs up" on a con
venient gravel bar; as others come
along these are induced to stop also
until a "jam" is formed. These very
often reach mammoth proportions,
milw i« laagtU, pitud deep atrft con
taining thousands of dollars io value.
Then all of the gates of the dams
above are opened wide; dynamite is
used to blow out the keg-logs. The
water descends, the whole mass begins
to raise slowly; then a quivering mo
tion ie visible—the mighty force of
water, buoyant and impetuous, is at
work. With the crashing of logs the
entire mass breaks away. The river is
cleared, the logs have " hauled," and
the jam is no more. Finally they
reach their place in the booms below,
and from there are taken to the mills.
At the saw mill the log is again at
tacked by the tenacious " grabs," and
is hauled twenty feet up an inclined
plane to the second floor of the mill.
Steam again takes charge of it, and it
is rolled out of the log-haul by a pair
of" kickers." It is placed upon the
saw carriage and turned right side up
by the massive knees of the steam
"nigger," which, when not at work,
lie between the floor joists of the mill.
The power for all these massive ma
chines, capable of handling a log of
fifty tons weight, is steam driven, and
the "offset" for the next board or
plank is done by power. When the
log is " slabbed" on one side it is
turned over and reloaded upon the
carriage by the long, hooked arm of
the " nigger." All these operations
are under control of the sawyer with
one lever.
The main saw in the more modern
mills is a shining, endless steel band
fourteeu inches in width, and sixty
one feet long, driven at s speed of 10,-
000 feet per minute around two mas
sive wheels ten feet in diameter. The
sharpening and repair of the saws re
quire a large shop, full of special tools
and machinery.
The boards or timbers as they leave
the main saw are transferred to any
part of the mill by a system of steam
driven rollers and cross transfer
chains. All these devices are con
trolled by levers, and the lumber seems
to be darting on its own account in
every direction. Small band saws,
and sets of small double circulars,
mounted one above the other and
placed side by side, still further reduce
the larger sticks to dimension lumber.
Timbers four inches by twenty-four
follow one another through a machine
at the rate of twenty-five feet per min
ute and emerge as 1 by 4 flooring
strips.
At the end of the mill the lumber is
collected from all transfers and ma
chines, and traveling over endless
chain approaches tbe gang-trimmer—
a row of circular saws mounted on
oscillating frames, placed two feet
apart for a width of fifty feet, which
can be raised or lowered by a system
of pull wires, by a man located above
the machine. As the lumber of all
lengths passes over the saw-table, one
or more saws can be elevated and cuts
made in the board at those points.
Ends are trimmed square and to
length; knots are cut out, leaving
shorter lengths of clear lumber—a
board with one or two knots is worth
vastly more in shorter " clear" pieces
than as a whole for No. 2 lumber. Re
fuse material is cut into 4 foot or
" wood lengths" and goes to the lath
mill, or to the wood-bins, all by auto
matic conveyance. All sawdust and
refuse are automatically handled by
special conveyors, or forced off in iron
pipes by steam-driven blowers and
conveyed to the boilers to be used as
fuel or to the refuse fire-pit.
From tbe mill the lumber goes to
every portion of the plant; to the
docks for loading into vessels for
every part of the globe; or to the
railroad cars for immediate shipment
to the markets of the country. Other
lumber is added to the great piles in
the yards for air-drying, or placed on
trucks for the dry kilos.
The dry-kilos ol a lumber-mill are
veritable hells. With a temperature
of 180 degrees kept up by steam or
hot-air from blowers, it only requires
from four to six days for the cooiplete
seasoning of lumber. It is then taken
on the same cars to the planing mills,
where stand long lines of massive,
complicated, fast-revolving machines.
It is fed at one end between the feed
rolls at the rate of sixty feet per min
ute, and issues at the other in one of a
thousand various forms of moldings,
ceilings, flooring and siding of every
form and design.
In the great storage sheds are
stored the material for hundreds of
homes. Standing on end, tied into
bundles of five pieces, fresh, clean
smooth as though polished, it is a
pleasure to handle such lumber. Long
lines of box-cars stand on the covered
tracks, and into them it is being
loaded for the journey across the con
tinent. «
The tree that a few short weeks be-
fore stood amid the solemn grandeur
of the primeval Pacific forests, to-day
may be converted into dock and
bridge timbers for New York, into
" spuds" for the dredgers of Florida, or
into masts for ships plying the At-
lantic or the Great Lakes. The shin
gles on the roofs of Eastern homes are
quite likely from the dreary cedar
swamps of Gray's Harbor, Washing
ton; or the interior finish from the
pine or redwood forests of the log-
laden hills of Northern California.
The variety of products from the Pa
cific Coast timbers is unequalled. Ex
cepting the higher class of cabinet
woods, every want to which timber can
be applied can be filled by some Pa
cific tree. In size the range is from
great sticks four feet square and up to
one hundred and ten feet in length.
Many of the mills can surface a tim
ber 24x30 inches and any length.
The amount of standing timber ac
cording to government estimates, is
amply to supply the present cut for
over a century, but the present output
is just a beginning; the industry is
only in its pioneer state, and is increas
ing greatly iu volume every year.
To-day it is the principal industry ot
the greater portion of three great states.
It is one of the main principal sources
of traffic for five transcontinental rail
road systems. Hundreds of steam and
sailing vessels carry the products to
every part of the world; and in Wash
ington, Oregon and Northern Califor
nia, the number of men employed in
all its branches, and the value of man
ufactured products, exceed all the other
industries combined.

Ed. Lowry, Chas. Long and other
farmers living west of Chehalls have
raised SBOO with which to build a tele
phone line from Chebalis to Boisfort
postoffice, a distance of sixteen miles.
They figure that the amount already
raised will pat the line through. This
will be the second rural telephone
line that has been built by the farmers
of Lewis county. The Home Tele
phone Co. of Silver Creek have a line
runuing thirty miles east of Chebalis
to Mossy Rock. They are also con
structing an eight-mile extension to
Alpha and a ten-milo extension to
Rifle. A movement is now on foot to
extend it to the Big Bottom country,
fifty miles east of the present term
inus.

There's never a rose in all the world
But makes some green spray sweeter;
There's never a wind in all the sky
But makes some bird's wing fleeter.
There's never a star but brings to heaven
Some silver radiance tender.
And never a rosy cloud but helps
To crown the sunset splendor;
No robin but may thrill some heart.
His downright gladness voicing.
God gives us all some small, sweet way
To set the world rejoicing.

A mother's love starts a man or woman
on the right path. The right remedy at
the right time fits a mother for the ordeal.
Motherhood is often looked forward to
with feelings of great dread by most wom
en. At such a time when she is nervous,
dyspeptic, irritable and in need of a uterine
tonic —something which will calm the nerv
ous system through the special organs, and
a strength builder, she will find Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription just what is needed.
Here is a medicine that has stood the test
of a third of a century with approval, in
that time it has sold more largely than any
other remedy put up specially for woman's
weaknesses. It is guaranteed by the pro
prietors not to contain a particle of alcohol
—which could only do harm to a sensitive
system.
The World's Dispensary Medical Associa
tion, of Buffalo, N. Y., proprietors of Dr.
Piece's Favorite Prescription, offer a SSOO
reward for women who cannot be cured of
Lencorrhea, Female Weakness, Prolapsus,
or Falling of Womb. All they ask is a fair
and reasonable trial of their means of cure.

stipation, biliousness and headache.
