The Ingenuity of ths average logger In
bis efforts to get the great foreat monsters
to tidewster is often taxed to the nvmost
peclally if the ground be very rough or
teep. At times fine bodies of timber will
bs found st altitudes of 700 lo 1500 feet
above tbe level of ths river and the ascent it
loo precipitous to admit of any hauling be
ing done, in oases lite mis tne service ol
a logging obuts art brought Into requisition.
The building of these chutes require a
considerable amount of energy and skill be
side a Urge outlay of money.
Una of tbe longest and most sipenslv.
adjunotsof tblsnstnr Is the Captain An
thony chut near Clifton. It waa built in
1S8U at a cost oi iu,uuu and la nearly
three-quarters of s mile in length. For a
considerable distance the bottom is shod
witb railroad iron. H. A. Newberry is log
ging in a fine body of timber and uses the
chute lo aend the logs to tide wstor. Some
idea of the velocity attained by the logs in
tbsir downward journey can be calcolated
when It lakes a Ins jnst twenty seconds to
makt the trip. If by accideut a small log
bappeot to stop on tbe wsy and Is followed
by a larger one the force of tbe collision is
such tbst It splinters both logs lo match

oonras and lake a circle and awing into line
again. When the stick strikes ths river it
raises tb water to s aialanoa ol zou teet in
