There are more than 48,000 sawmills in the United States, and their output in the form of sawdust, shavings, slabs, and other wood refuse is estimated as 36 million cords per year. This is equal to over four and one-half billion cubic feet of waste, which is the capacity of a bin one-half mile high with a base covering a forty acre lot. Or, considering each cord to contain eighty cubic feet of solid wood with all the cracks and air spaces taken out, these 36 million cords would make a block of wood more than a quarter of a mile on each edge. Perhaps one half of this so-called waste product is not strictly speak' ing, wasted, but serves a useful pur pose as fuel under the boilers. Much of the remaining 18 million cords not only serves no useful purpose, but in most cases is a source of inconven ience and danger, and costs the mill time and money. Sawmill waste is disposed of in various ways. Some goes to the local fuel market, some to pulp mills or to wood distillation plants. Shavings and hog cuttings, as well as other mill waste, are sometimes used to fill low places in the yard. However, the most common method of getting rid of waste is by burning either in a fire-pit having an open fire which sometimes has a protecting wall on the side towards the mill, or in burner enclosed on all sides and hav ing a spark-arresting screen at the top and a fire gate near, the bottom. In both cases some kind of a con veyor is necessary to bear the waste from the mill to the fire. This is usually a sort of trough with a metal bottom along which a slowly moving chain or cable, equipped with cleats or buckets, carries the waste to the fire. A closed burner and conveyor casts about $12,000 for a mill of a hundred thousand feet daily, capacity. Forty per cent of the larger mills, cutting more than 55,000 board feet daily, are equipped with closed burners, Forty-five per cent have fire pits. The remainder have neither and dis pose of their waste in some other way. It is estimated 'that for a mill of one hundred thousand feet capacity, 'the cost of conveying the waste from the machine where it is made and destroying it in a closed burner is 42 cents per cord, or $10.05 per day. Burners seldom bring in any HONOR THE FLAG Oil JUKE 14TH OPEN LETTER FROM WM. T. SHERMAN POST ENDORSES JOURNAL'S STAND AND IN VOKES PATRIOTISM. SOUGH T FUG'S. SHELTER VAINLY E. E. WILSON, SAILOR, TELLS HOW UNITED STATES CON SULS REFUSED TO AID HIM. , WAS MADE TO SERVE ON BRITISH WARSHIP. The Pensacola Journal in an editor ial, calls our attention to President Wilson's proclamation, urging this nation to observe the 139th anniver sary of Flag Day, June 14th, the day the continental congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the emblem of America. Wm. T. Sherman Post, G. A. R asks that patriotic exercises and patriotic music be played on that day and evening. The Stars ' and Stripes is not the emblem of ' the northland nor the southland, with a dividing line between them, but the flag of a united .nation that all Eu rope must respect. One day in each year our flag should float from the flag staff of every school house, and from the masthead of every ' ship, from every public building and. from every cottage in the laad. Let the color-guard from every school house be ordered out for duty on that day, True devotion to the flag will make the boys of today better citizens and better voters for the morrow. Hang out the old flag and have your neigh bors do the same. If you do not own a flag secure one before the 14th and on that day hoist it to the breeze. You will say to yourself and to your neighbor, that is OW Glory, my Flag and yours. Take off your hat as you pass it by. Ok. Glory, a rainbow in the sky; a star for every state and a state for every star. Wm. T. Sherman Post, Grand Army of the Republic Specials for Monday: Dresses, $3.98; Voil Waists, 98c.

Both burners and fire pits add to the insurance rates on lumber, and in the case of the pit on the mill it self. In order to reduce the fire hazard to zero, in the case of the burners, it is necessary to keep al lumber piles at least one hundred aud fifty feet away from the burner. The matter is much worse in the case of pits, especially the open ones which must be kept three hundred ; feet away from the mill and five hundred feet away from any lumber piles. When nearer than these distances from the mill and yard respectively, the insurance rates mount up rapid ly . with closer proximity until they become practically prohibit' e when the fire pit is nearer than one hun dred feet. No well managed ro "11 would rro duce waste if it could b avoided. This however, is not possible, so the next ' est thinr is to see'.; out some method of utilisation of the waste so it wfll pay for its disposition. The forest servl e is. working tn this problem but has not yet foT.T a satisf solution. (Washington Star.) Square of jaw, blue of eye and vith j his cheeks burnt to . healthy brown which bespoke a life at sea, Edward E. Wilson, seafarer hailing from In dianapolis, InL, recently walked into The Star office and told a story of ad venture during the past three years which would have made Robert Louis Stevenson blush could he hav- heard it. This story, sworn to in the form of an affidavit by Mr. Wilson, is here with repeated. It transpired that on the 8th of ebruary, 1913, Mr. Wilson left Pen sacola, Fia., on a three-masted bark bound -for South America. After a three-month trip he took service with the British Royal mail ship, Demara, sailing between Buenos Aires and Liverpool, subsequently changed to the Mclver line, and then to the John son line between Live:-pool and Balti more. ' Left ' Penniless in Pern. The real story starts with his tak ing service on a branch line plying between Liverpool and the west coast of South America. Taken sick in Cal lao, Peru, he was put ashore at Chile and left in the hospital at Talachau- ana. According to Mr. Wilson, he spent, two months in the hospital and on being dismissed went to George W. Steele, the British consul in that town, and endeavored to obtain from him his pay and his clothes etc He was Informed that nothing had been left for him. Mr. Wilson claims that the sea man's act of England's board of trade contains "a provision by' which he should have been sent back to Liver pool. This privilege, he said, was de nied him on the grounds that he was an American citizen. He then went to the American consul at Talachau ana and was informed that inasmuch as he had been signed under British articles no assistance could e given him at that consulate. Without funds he was forced to re main in bouth America until Julv. 1914, when he went to Valparaiso, : where he signed articles with the i British steamship California in South i American trade. Arriving at Ante-1 fasto, Chile, the crew was informed that they would be expected to stay aboard at Valparaiso. Having been paid off, he made a futile effort to get ashore and finally at 1:30 o'clock in the morning got away from the ship in a small boat. Reportine to the American consul and telling him his story, he. was advised by him to go back and join his ship. Forced on English Ship. To pick Jup the narrative in Mr. Wilson's own words: "I told him I had no desire to sail on an English ship and demanded my rights as an American citizen. The consul grew angry and called his ne gro porter to throw me out of the office. I threw him out; told the con sul I would do the same with him if not accorded a more courteous hear ing and after afew more words left of my own free wilL. "I was arrested upon the street by the' Chilean police as a deserter and proved in court my right to leave the ship. I then remained in Valparaiso when, being once more without funds, I signed with the British ship Myrtle Branch on August 1. After signing the articles, I discovered that war had been declared and declined to go. I S'Y-- - - - - - - , .

H M X was arrested by the police, placed on board in irons and kept a prisoner be low decks until we went to sea. "Three days out from shore I was released, brought on deck before Capt. Williams and told by him to do my work. I did as ordered and on September 20 we arrived at Liver pool, where I was taken before the board of trade and placed on record as a British subject who is trying to avoid H. M. S. service. All my pro testations that I was an American citizen proved fruitless and after us ing up all the money I had and trying to get a ship to the United States, I went back to the board of trade and was told by them to go to work on the India, a commercial ship bound for the west coast of South America. I made the round trip voyage -with this ship, though I tried to escape at a South American port. Torpedoed in the North Sea. "A ten-day leave of absence was granted the crew when we returned to England, and when I came back to the ship after this period I found that she had been equipped with six twelve-inch and two three-inch guns. I tried to get away, but could not, and we left London on the 12th of October, took on stores at Glasgow and sailed out under sealed orders. "The North sea was our destina tion, and for forty-two days we did patrol duty, in the course of which we sank one submarine and sighted two which got away. We also sighted the Annie M. Reed, flying the Amer ican flag, a bark bound for New York city, which was fired upon and then ordered to stop. I protested against firing, was locked up in irons and not released until we returned to Glas gow, December 18. "On Christmas eve we went out again to the North sea patrol duty. Twelve days out we were sighted by two submarines, torpedoed and were sunk in . latitude 56 north 12 west southwest. I was one of the twenty- one saved out of a total crew of 249 souls. We were picked up by a trawler and taken by her to England, where I was paid $50 for the loss of my belongings. Once more I insisted that I was an American citizen, and this time I was pronounced a lunatic I went to the American ambassador seeking assistance and was referred by him to the consul at LiverpooL Left to His Fate in London. "This representative of the United States informed me he could not help me. Seated in a saloon with some sailor friends, I was despairing of ever getting back to America, when a British officer came in and referred to all Americans in violent profane language. I knocked him down and was forthwith arrested and mal treated by the police. I asked that the American consul be sent to me and was refused. I was tried, and when I told the judge that if he or the King of England used similar terms in reference to Americans as were employed by the British officer I would attempt to stop them in the same way 1 was knocked senseless by a court attendant standing behind me. "When I came to I found that I had been sentenced to three months' hard labor for striking an officer. I again demanded to see the American con sul and was refused. I served out my three months, was discharged, went to the consul at Liverpool to express doubt as to whether I was an American or not, and he told me he had no jurisdiction in my case. 1 convinced him I was an American and demanded my rights. I was then or dered out of the office as a nuisance and threatened with arrest. "I stowed away on a tramp steam er bound for Norfolk, Va and ar rived In that port on the 22d of May. I then came to Washington to see Senator Taggart of Indiana and also Senator Kern, and asked them whe th er I had received my rights as an American citizen. "I have seen Senator Taggart, who has promised to take the matter up. He says he does not think I did get my rights.
