Mr. Ti'-mann came forth with a
new kiln that would season lumber
thoroughly in from eight to 1-1 days.
It consists of a closed chamber in
which the lumber is piled in a cer

and humidity are regulated accord

cuesswork about it. It brings re

CONSTANTINOPLE. Sept. 21.
With the crumbling of Turkish

badge which all Turkish subjects.
Christians, Jews and Turks alike,
are supposed to wear, is rapidly
disappearing. Although the Mos
lems Mill wear their fezzes In the
streets, they no longer cling to them
slavishly indoors. Soon the Turks
may be wearing hats with brims in
Constantinople. Moslems in other
parts of Turkey insist the Moham
medans in the capital lost their re
ligion long ago through their desire
to imitate the infalels.
As all heads must remain covered
in the mosques and it is quite Im
possible to touch one's forehead to
a prayer rug while wearing a hat
with brim .the fez is indispensable
to the faithful Moslem who prays
daily to Mecca. Even military and
naval officers must wear visorless
The fez still prevails in Anatolian
cities. In fact It Is unsafe for for
