SHIP SIBERIAN TIMBER.
'MELBOURNE, Feb. 2S.-An Aus
tralian corporation hat just received
a concession from the Russian Gov
ernment to take out thirty million
feet of timber a year from a forest in
Siberia, nine hundred miles from
Vladivostok, to be delivered in Mel
bourne, Australia, approximately
eight thousand miles away, and nearly
three times the distance from New
York to San Francisco.
It is likely that no lumbering op
eration of recent year more strongly
illustrates the pinch in the timber
supply in all parts of the world. In
the news of the concession told in an
American journal, it the suggestion of
the difficulty that all countriet may
have to encounter in getting the wood
which thew need in the future. Every
year the timber cruiser are going
further and further afield and cutting
trees which, in former timet of abun
dance, they passed because of the in
accessibility of the forest. . '
In taking out the Siberian timber
the Melbourne lumbermen will have
to ship the entire year! cut in July,
August, September and October, for
during the remainder , of the year
there it no open water at the point of
shipment. What makes this unusual
feature of transporting bulky logs
8,000 miles quite feasible it that such
unmanufactured stock is admitted
free, while there is a heavy duty on
all manufactured wood brought into
Australia, the duty on lumber, for
instance, being nearly $5.00 a thou
sand board feet At Melbourne, a
new mill is being erected to manu
facture these logs into dressed stock,
such . as flooring, ceiling and other
products, as well as into lumber.
These Siberian operations differ
from the lumbering methods in the
United States, in that in this country
it is possible and customary to have
new mills conveniently near the place
of production, though, with the con
tinually decreasing supply, the larger
mills often find it profitable to haul
their timber by trams and railroads
many miles away from their saws.
Forest experts in this country say
that the hope of the United States for
steady supply of timber lies in the
application of forestry 'to all timber
lands, private and public, and . the
careful study of the economical and
better utilization of product Even
so, a severe shortage in twenty to
twenty-five years must be expected
Many Sleepless Nights, Owing to a
Persistent Cough.. Relief Found
"For several winters past my wife
has been troubled with a most persis
tent and disagreeable cough, which
invariably extended over a period of
several weeks and caused her many
sleepless nights," writes Will J. Hay
ner, editor o! the Burley, Colo., Bul
letin.''; "Various remedies were tried each
year, with no beneficial results. In
November last the cought again put
in an appearance and my wife, acting
on the suggestion of a friend, pur
chased a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. The result was in
deed marvelous. After three doses
the cough' entirely disappeared and
has not manfiested itself since." This
remedy is for sale by Frank Hart
and leading druggists.

Gasoline engines and electric mo
tors have taken the place of manual
labor in the operation of changing
the direction of a locomotive on a
turntable. These mechanical powers
have reduced the cost of operating a
turntable by hand from about $15 per
24 hours to $5 for turning 400 locomo
tives,.. ..... . ..'..ii: ; t
Now a bright genius has thought of
a method the expense of which is to
small that it can hardly be estimated.
It consists of a compressed air motor
placed beneath the turntable and op
erated from air furnished by the air
brake pump on the locomotive being
turned. Connection is made between
the engine and the motor with a pip
ing and, hose, i An air pressure, of SO
lbs. will turn the locomotive, and its
the turning is done in two minutes,
the amount of steam used to work
the pump is too small to reckon.
