SHOWERS HELP THE LOGS
la the Northern1
The rains that we have been getting
in this part of the country have not
been confined to as alone. They have
extended up to the pineries. Letters
that have been received from the Clo
quet country say that they have had
heavy rains there. These, rainfalls
have not been enough to raise the
drive streams so as to float a single
down to boom works, but they
served to quiet the fires that
were beginning to rage evervwhere
through the woods, destroying the
cut with standing timber. In manv
cases great effort has been necessary
to save tbe logs that are still heaped
at the roll bank?, waiting for water
enough to float them down the river
Fire in a heap of this kind is very
hard to handle, and these losses, when
they take place, are by no means
small and insignificant.
The sawmillmen here do not expect
that there will be rain enough, before
the close of the season, to send them
any more rafts than thev now have
in aigt. and they have little enough
in sight, goodness knows, but they
are thankful that there is a promise
of showers enough, from time to time,
to save at least a part of the stock.
millions of it in value, that is strand
ed, for want of flood water, in the
regions of the pineries, in which it
was grown. It is not expected that
the drive streams will send us any
logs this summer, but there are hopes
that tbe logs that they now contain
which it was expected cur mills would
be working on, may be spared to be
sawn in some future season. If there
is little rain up that way the country
up there is just about going to burn
up bodily. For the immediate pres
ent it is wet enough to be safe.

Carrier Pigeons In England.
Englishmen in all quarters of the is
land are training carrier pigeons for
the purpose of systematic transmission
of messages. At the Crystal palace a
pigeon post has been established, and
it is said to be working perfectly. Nu
merous clubs have sprung up which
carry on regular communication with
continental points by means of these
"postmen of the air." It is thought
that England's trained pigeons will be
immensely valuable to the country in
the event of war. says the Chicago
Record. It is recalled that one of Lord
Rothschild's pigoons brought to Eng
land the first news of the battle of Wa
terloo and that large use was made of
such birds during the siege of Paris.
