JTft&PEfc 11 11 x IM I MARK I s& BUSIED rOEESTS OF HEW JEBSE7. An industry the like of which does not exist anywhere else in the world furnishes scores of people in Cape May county, New Jersey, with remunerative employment, and has made comfortable fortunes for many citizens. It is the novel business of mining cedar . trees digging from far beneath the sur-. face immense logs of sound and aromatic cedar. The fallen and submerged cedar forests of south ern New Jersey were discovered first beneath the Dennisville swamps 75 years ago, and have been a source of constant interest fo geologists and scientists gener ally ever since. There are stand ing at the present day no such enormous specimens of the cedar anywhere on the face of the globe as are found embedded in the deep muck of the Dennisville swamps. Some of the trees have been un covered measuring six ieet in diameter, and trees four feet through are common. Although ages must have passed sinco these great forests fell and became covered many feet beneath the surface, such trees as fell, ac cording to the scientific theory, while they were yet living trees are as sound to-day as they were the day of their uprooting. Such trees are called "windfalls" in the nomenclature of the. cedar mines, as it is thought they were torn up by the roots during some terrible gale of an unknown past. Others are found in the wreck that were evidently dead trees when they fell, and to these the miners have given the name of "breakdowns." The peculiar action of the wind and water in the swamp has kept these breakdowns in the same stage of decay they were in when they fell, as the same agency has preserved intact the soundness of the living trees. The theory, of those who have made this mysterious collection of buried cedar trees astudy is that they in some unknown age formed a vast forest that grew in a fresh water lake or swamp that covered this portion of New Jersey, the properties of the soil of which were necessary to the forest's existence. According to Clarence Deming and Dr. Maurice Beasely, eminent geological authorities in southern New Jersey, the sea either broke in upon the swamps or the laud subsided and the salt water reached the trees. This destroyed tlie life of many of them, and subsequently some prehistoric cyclone swept over the forest and leveled it to the earth. The heavy trees grad ually sank into the soft soil of the swamps until they reached the substantial earth or rock beneath it, where they reposed, unknown and undisturbed, until their pres ence was accidentally discovered in 1812. Ever since then the logs have been mined, and haVc been an important factor in the commer cial and business prosperity of, South Jersey. The buried forests lies at vari ous depths in the swamp, and the uncovering- of the treesor- work ing the "cedar mine" isdone in a very simple and easy manner. The log miner enters the swamps and prods in the soft soil with a long, sharp iron rod. The trees lie so thickly beneath the surface that the rod cannot be pushed down amiss on its testing errand, for the prodding is not so much in search of a tree as it is to test whether the tree is a "windfall" or a "breakdown." When the prod strikes the log, the miner chips off a piece with the sharp, point of the tool, which brings the chip or splinter to the surface when drawn out of the muck. By the appearance and the order of this chip the miner can tell at once whether the tree he has tested is a sound, one or a dead one. If the former, he quiokly ascertains the length of the trunk. by prodding along Irom one end, of it to the other. That ascertained, he proceeds at once .to raise the log from its hidden bed. He works dovn through the mud a saw similar. to those usedin . sawing out ice in' filling an ice house. With this he saws the log In two as near the roots as he cares to. The top of the tree is next sawed off in the am,j'JrTay,"and then the big cedar stick is ready to be released from its resting-place. 'A ditch is dug. dojm- tei'the. lc the trunk-ia? THE loosened by cant hooks, audit .rises with the water to the surfaco of the ditch. A curious thing is noticed about the logs when they come to the surface, and thai is" that they invariably turn over, with their bottom sides up. After mining, the log is easily "snake'd out" of the swamp and is ready for the mill or factory. These ancient trees are of. a white variety of cedar, and; when cut have the same aromatic flavor, intensified many degrees, that the common red cedar of the present day has. The wood is of a deli; cate flesh color. One of the mys terious characteristics of these long sunken trees is that not one has ever been found to- be water logged in the slightest. It is im possible to tell how many layers deep these cedars lie in the swamps, but it is certain, that there aro several layers, and that with all the work that has been done in constantly mining them during three-quarters of a century, the first layer has not been re moved from the depths. At some places in the Dennisville swamp the soil has sunk in for several feet and become dry, and .there the fallen eedars mav be seen in great heaps one upon the otjier. No tree has ever been renioved .11UU1 UIO JVCIIIJtJTItlV i3UaU4U j1Va tmnm Iia TlantiiairiliA onramn ffnm a greater depth than five feet, but ouisiue uie iiuiiia ui iue,jjouiij they have .been found at jaj 'great depth, which shows the ijorrect ness of the- deep layer' theory. Near the shore of the Delaware, eight miles from Dennisville, Iwhite cedar logs have been exhumed from a depth of 12 feet. At cape May, twenty miles distant, drillers of an artesian well struck bno of the trees 90 feet below the surface. It. was lying in an alluvial deposit similar to the Dennisville swamp. Another log was founda cape May 20 feet beIov'jjvk surface, and a third at & depth of vf feet. These deeply . buried logs were among the largest ever brought to light, and their location so far away from the Dennisville marsh indicates the great extent ot that ancient forest area. The uses to which the cedar logs are put are many. The principal use" is the making of shingles and staves. The longevity of articles made from the wood is shown in shingles, tubs, pails, aud casks made from it over 70 years ago, and which have yet to show the slightest indication of decay. The shingles and staves are worked into. shape 'entirely by hand, the only machine work that is per mitted in manipulating the. cedar logs being the sawing of them into proper lenjrths for the uses to which the lumber is to be put. The Dennisville cedar shingles command a price much higher than the. best pine or chestnut shingles. What it is in the amber colored swamp water and red muck at Dennisville that preserves these trees so that, after the lapse of centuries, their fibre is as clean arid smooth and strong as it was when the green branches of the cedar were waving over the swamp is a mystery that scientific men have as yet been unable to solve.
