CORNER IN WHEAT
ARMOUR THREATENS LARGEST

The following telegram was recelv

THE LIFE OF A TIE.
Railroads Will Endeavor to Add to
the Longevity of Tamarack Ties.
"A railroad tie lives Ave years un
der tho best conditions," said a well
known track man to an East Oregon
Ian representative today.
"The tamarack ties made In tho
Blue Mountains are short-lived things
In certain kinds of soil. On the
mountains, where the track bed is
partly composed of rock, the tie gets
dry from the Intense heat and cracks
open from one end to the othor. Tho
rain runs into tho centor or tno tie
and It soon begins to roL In damp
places, the moisture keeps the tie
from cracking open so badly, and It
lasts longer. Ordinarily, the life of
a tie Is Ave years, but many pieces
of track are entirely renowed in three
years. Tho Western railroads are
now contemplating a chemical treat
ment of ties to lengthen their life by
half. A fluid, consisting principally
of creosote. Is forced .nto tho tie by
high steam pressure. Tho wood ab
sorbs about 30 to 40 pounds of tho
fluid, with the result that not a
check or crack will appear In the sur
face of tho tie, for flvo to six years.
It will remain sound in almost any
kind of soil for doublo tho length of
time it now lasts. It Is a new meth
