A Grand Old Man
Burning over an area of five acres
fire destroyed practically the entire
property of the Western Oregon
Lumber Company at Liuntoti, en
tailing a loss of $150,006 with in
surancc probably totaling $75,000.
The null destroyed was one of the
finest of its kind on the coast. AN
though the mill began to operate
in April, 1910, it was not until a
few mouths ago that the plant was
entirely completed. More than 100
men arc thrown out of work.
The fire was discovered by I?, C.
Morris, uightwatchmnu, a few min
utes before 7 o clock, and only 35
minutes after he had been in t lie en
ginc-room, where it originated. At
first he saw a light and thought it
was that of the millwright, but as it
grew larger lie investigated ami
discovered the bluze.
He shouted to the night fireman,
who was the only other occupant o
the mill at the time, instructing
him to blow the whistle, while he
started the pump; How the fire
started is a mysterv, us there was
no debris in the engine room.
While the fireman blew the whis
tli! Morris started the pumps, which
had a capacity of 75,000 gallons of
water per minute. Shortly after
he had started the pumps the mill
crew, startled by the whistle, res
ponded from the buukhousc 11 few
hundred feet away. The fire ap
paratus of the milt was immediately
put in service, but the flames swept
through the null with such severity
that wltliiu live minutes the men
had to leave their posts near the
mill on account of the intense heat.
A minute later the apparatus was
made useless by the bursting of the
large main leading to the pump.
Fire alarms scut in brought res
pouse from the station at 20th
and Qtiimby streets and engine 24

impossible to get across the river at
that point. Automobile hose cart
No. 6 later responded with 1000 ft.
of hose, but by the time apparatus
arrived the fire was beyond control
and, there was practically nothing
to do but let the fire burn itself
It was nearly 8 o'clock before the
fircboat George II. Williams reached
the scene of the conflagration. Its
tunny streams aided materially in
putting out the flames which had
crept to the wharf and were rapid
ly eating their way toward the dry
kiln, only a portion of which was

a day, much of the product ltelug
rail for cargo shipment. The firm
also oterated a yard at Arleta on
the O. W. P., where it had a large
retail trade.
For three hours the fire burned
fiercely before it was brought un
der control.
By 10 o'clock all the structure
work of the plant, with the excep
tion of the boiler room, containing
three boilers, as well as most of the
lumber on the wharf was destroyed.
An attempt was made to save
the boiler room and Captain
Jounson.of the fireboat.sent to Port
land for more hose.
Part of the platform ot the out
skirts of the mill, containing several
thousand feet of lumber, was saved.
The bunkhouse, a planked passage
way leading to the railroad track,
and a few smaller buildings were
also saved. As far as could be as
certained last night all of the ma
chinery was destroyed with the ex
ception of the three boilers, to save
which an attempt was made.
Shortly after the fire broke out
the members of the lumber firm
were on the scene,
"I intend to rebuild immediate
ly," said Mr. Kiugsley Mouday
night, "From the present outlook
I think the mill will be in operation
again within 90 days. Uutil the
ruins are examined I cannot telt
whether the machinery is a total
loss, but I do not think much more
can be recovered than the salvage
of the metal in the machinery."
The plant of the Western Oregon
Lumber Co. was built in September
1909, and put in operation in April,
1 9 10. In the frame of the work
buildings alone were 1 ,000,000 ieet
of lumber. The roof was of gal
vanized irou. The main building
was 56x249 feet. The mill was di
vided into two main departments,
the sawmill proper and the plauing
mill. The property was insured
for 74,000.

Oilc-sevcnth of twenty-five and a
quarter millions of railroad tics that
are in the Pacific system of the S.P.
roadbed have to be taken up each
year and replaced with absolutely
new ones. These ties, before be
ittg placed in the roadbed, must
be treated cither by creosote or with
a chemical preparation, known as
the Duructtizing treatment, before
they can be used.
These interesting facts ore taken
directly from a statistical report of
the maintenance of way department
of the bouthcru Pacific Company
They are positively accurate. Besides
this, they arc 0 few truths about
railroad operation that arc seldom
given to the readers of the newspa
There arc 0 little more than twenty
live ami a quarter million ties on
the Pacific system of the Southern
Pacific. At the renewal rate of one
seventh each year, and an average
of 2800 ties to the mile, mote than
240 miles of the Southern Pacific
roadbed is rebuilt earth 12 months.
Dining the last ten years 20,098,
490 ties in the roadbed of this road
were taken up and replaced with
new ones. Pine, fir, oak,ccdar and
redwood arc the woods used by the
Southern Pacific for its ties. With
the single exception of redwood, oil
are subjected to the preservative
The Duructtiziiig process con
sists of forcing chloride of zinc into
the wood cells. A vacuum treat
mem is iirst applied. The tics are
first placed in a cylinder, steamed
for the purpose of softening the
wood cells, then the vacuum is ap
plied to extract the sap and water
from the wood. After this the
chloride of zinc is applied. More
than n half o day is required for
this process after which the tics are
treated to a sun both for several
weeks. The crcosotiug process is
essentially similar to Buruettiziiig,
except that dead oil of coal tar is
used in place of zinc solution.
1 here are four spikes in each tic
and two ticplatcs. Hriug your
mathematical talents into play.
The answer is 101,000,000 spikes
and 50,500,000 tie plates in the Pa
cific System of the Southern Pacific.
The tie plates weigh (3V1 pounds
each, the spike a half pound, max
lug a total of 681,950,000 pounds
of metal attached to these ties, not
counting of course, the rails which
weigh 90 pounds to the yard and
the numerous tie rods,

An Awful Sick Man
Pat, experiencing sharp pains on
his right side, was advised by his
doctor that he had appendicitis,
and that the appendix would neces
sarily have to be removed before he
could become well. Pat agreed to
have this done and went to the hos
tltal for an operation. Never hav-
ug seen or heard of an appendix,
he wished very much to see the
thing when it had been taken from
his carcass. The physician agreed
to place it upon the window sill
near his cot, so that he could see
it the first thing upon coming out
from under the effects of the ether.
Pat was was operated upon, his ap
pctulix was removed, and he was
placed near a window. In the
meantime a pet monkey climbed
011 the window sill. Upon regain-
ug his senses the first thing Pat
saw was the monkey. The monk
ey began to grin and chatter. Pat
blinked at it hard a couple of times,
his eyes full of sorrow and reproach,
and said: "Don't do it, me son,
don't do it. Yir mither is an
ful sick -111011."

More Than Skin Deep
More than a skin salve is needed
to cure piles permanently.
Don't be disappointed if you fail
to get a lasting cure of piles with
salves. The cause of piles is more
than skin deep. It is sluggish, flab

to have something for nothing, but
to have the lion's share.
But the great majority of men in
aber unions in our country arc os
good men os live in any country and
only demand a square deal. When
we soy tne unions are at the pari
ng of the ways, we mean that since
the uumuskiiiir in Los Auireles. the
unions will have to decide whether
they will elect their wisest and most
conservative men to fill their offices
or whether they will elect the loud
mouthed ami vicious element which
ias crept into their Associations.
H the former, they will crow n
strength, usefulness and standing
right along; if the hitter, then the
time will come, and come soon,
when no man known to bclowr to
a union can obtain employment, for
tne public will not long live
with the feel inn that there is a
owless force in the country which
they must cater to and obey, or be
treated as the ordinary hold-up or

The whole West knows that kill-

was all due to a determination of
