Waste In Lumbering Southern Appala
The forests of the Southern Appala
chian Mountains have been cut so
eagerly for the valuable hardwoods
they contain that very little virgin tim
ber Is left and about 85 per cent of the
area Is second growth. I
The drain on these forests by many
Industries Is Immense. The lumberi
men are going over the land for thu
third time. First they took only the
prime oak and poplar saw timber.
Next they took the oaks that were
suited for barrel staves. Now they
are after whatever merchantable trees
are left, such as birch, chestnut and
Moreover, these forests have been,
and still are, logged very wastefully.
Nearly three-quarters of the timber
cut for ties Is wasted. Double ,or evoh
treble, the number of ties now cut'
could readily be secured from the
same area without Injury to the for
est. By simply taking all the suitable
trees, 125 ties could be cut from an
acre which now yields only i(), and
If all of the wood in the trees were
fully utilized, fully 170 adltlonal ties
per acre could be secured.
With mine timbers the story is the

To Prevent Pneumonia.
The Commissioner of Health of the
City of Chicago has recommended that
open trailers be run on the street lines
of that city as a means of preventing
the spread of pneumonia and other
diseases, a fact which leads to the
reflection that if people would live
more in the open air and less in over
heated and ill-ventilated quarters,
pneumonia would be much less preva
lent than it is during the fall and
To stop that pain in the back, that
stiffness of the joints and muscles,
