One of the heaviest producing

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 11.
Some actnal Improvement in the
demand for lumber Is reported
from states of the Twelfth Fed
eral Reserve district, John Per
rin declared in a report made pub
lic here today.
Stiffening of prices in the up
per grades of Douglas fir, station
ary or declining prices for Cali
fornia redwood and white and
sugar pine, and decidedly more
hopeful feeling as to future, busi
ness prospects also feature the
lumber Industry at this time, the
Progress in Output
"August production of 356,
233,000 feet of lumber, according
to reports from the four lumber
associations in the district, was
26,890,000 feet greater than the
July cut, an increase of 8.1 per
cent," the report said, "In the
corresponding four weeks of Aug
ust, 1920, the cut was reported to
be 468,491.000 feet.
"About 75 per cent of the lum
ber mill capacity in the Pacific
northwest and 60 per cent in the
Inland Empire Is reported as be
ing in operation, while logging
operations are reported as 40 per
cent of normal.
Sales Effort Xewled
"Shipments and orders kept
pace with the increased cut and
were greater than in July. Orders
are reported to require much
sales effort, but' increased from
263,416,000 feet in July to 331,-
310,000 feet in August of
per cent. Shipments made dur
ing the month totaled 336,941,-
000 feet compared with 286.727,
000 feet in July, an increase of
17.5 per cent. Shipments of lum
ber by w.ter t- the Atlantic sea
board have increased 5.868 per
cent dnrlng the first six months
of 1921 compared with the same
L period in 1920. Notwithstanding
th tremndous increase in water
movement, the total volume of
business of the Pacific northwest
mills in Atlantic coast markets Is
stated to be less than it was a
year ago, indicating a , heavy de
cline in rail shipments. The re
port of the Pacific Lumber In
spection bureau reveals gam3 in
water-borne shipments to all des
tinations at- nine cargo markets
and losses in a like number with
a net loss of 13 per cent. Ship
ments to uropcan markets show
-a decline of approximately f2 per
cent, to the west coast of South
America of 41 per cent, to Aus
tralia of 58 per cent, and to Cht-
na of 12 per cent. Shipments to
Japan, which is rebuilding six of
her largest cities, showed an in
crease of 31 per cent. All com-

Freeing the Victim
StTKDAT HEALTH TALK KO. 12
By O. U Scott, O.O.
The victim of nervous headaches is usu
ally the victim of a poor stomach or an
inactive liver. If the liver Is inactive it
disorders the stomach. If the stomach Is
the center of weakness, the headaches will
only be overcome when the weakness of
the stomach is corrected.
The victim of nervous headaches en
joys days of relief, but as time runs on,
the headaches come back more and more
often. The cause is a mechanical mis
alignment of spinal joints which causes
pressure on spinal nerves, either to the
stomach or liver, and in many cases to j
both. The chiropractor restores the me-1
chanical alignment, and with the pressure
on the nerves released, fiature. acts nor
