In its efforts to attain comulete utilization of our forest resources, the Federal Government has been making inquiries into the possibilities of manufacturing wood flour from sawdust waste. The flour in question is not the kind which is converted into fluffy biscuits or flaky pastry, nor Is it a substitute for corn meal, although it looks somewhat like it. This wood flour is made by grinding dry saw dust or small wood waste (that of , pine or spruce is. excellent for the j purpose) in a cheap mill, similar to the kind In which corn and rye are ground. After passing through the stones and the bolting chest, it Is sacked or baled for shipment. It is then worth $12 to $13 per ton. This flour Is used in making dyna mite, and acts as the absorbent for the nitro-glycerine. Dynamite made with wood flour, as one of the In gredients Is somewhat Inferior to that made with infusorial earth, but it is cheaper. The use of wood flour in the manufacture of dynamite, however, It is but a minor use of the product. The chief use is In the manufacture of linoleum and xyloite, both floor coverings that are very popular for the use in kitchens, halls, corridors, cafes, restaurants, and public rooms. It is Impervious to water and practically fire proof. It is also used as floor material on some of the German war vessels, for it is not liable to take fire or splinter if hit by shellsT The manufacture of wood flour is already an extensive Industry in Eu rope. Norway has been manufactur ing for years and exporth thousands of tons. Germany also is a large manufacturer. England and France are extensive buyers. In the United States the matter of wood flour has not yet been given much consider ation. . A few mills in the middle west and one at Hoaulni. Washine- ton, are all that have attempted to transfer their wood waste into wood flour. The amount of sawdust to be had In this country, especially in the Northwest, is unlimited, and lumber men should welcome this method of turning their waste into a practical and profitable product. PAGE THREE NEW MAClUXKRv OF WAR. Iu this war. for the first time, the submarine lias justified the hopes of its inventor, who died only a short time before war was declared l'p iu me iiraoiu war t ip ,min. not positively scored a single victory It had cost many lives, but they were oi us own trews. If the average ef ficiency already achieved shall be car ried out in the great fleets of sub marines yet in reserve, the policy of navies may have to be revised. The aeroplane also has proved its value ana necessity, and has already met upBciauons. At this writing the uirigiDies nave accomplished prac tically nothing. A few bombs have been dropped here and there, blow ing up catnearals, hospitals and pri vate houses, and killing a few women ana ciniaren, but with one exception having caused no particular damage to either navy or army. What op portunities the dark, foggy days of January will afford, may change con ditions materially, but thus far the dirlglDle is more a threat than an ex ecution. The big sieee. r..n a really only enlargements and devel opments .of artillery used for years. ine motor vehicle is something to credit with great performances and is used for. the first time on a large scaie. avery type of motor car seems to find a wide field of usefulness. The city motor bus for movintr In. fantry rapidly, transfers small bodies or troops as far in an hour as they could march in a day, and delivers the men fresh for action. The a mored car has given a good account or itself for scouting; the tourin; car ror officer s work and disDatohes while for transporting supplies and for ambulance service, cars similar to those n general use have mud good everywhere. For hauling heavy guns, uie motor is vastly easier to manage than horses of mules. It is true this war is being waged in coun tries noted for their good roads, but the efficiency, capacity, and rapidity ot uie motor vehicle of war has de monstrated abundantly the tremen dous advantage accruing to the army so equipped over one that is denend ent wholly on animals for transDorta tion.
