A LOUUINU CHUTE. Choline; l,ne;s ait ths Hale ! IOO Hill. aaii.ar, . Csthlametts Gazette. 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.

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 wood.
