The bureau of forestry hns contin
ued this year on a far largor scale
the experiments in timber seasoning
and preservation which it bogan last
year uiH.er fir. Hermann von Schrenk.
This summer the work will un carried
on in many states East. South, and
West and will be broadoned In scope
and made even more morougn than
before. This work will be done for
the New York Central, the Erie, the
Baltimore & Ohio, and the Pennsyl
vania railroads in the East; and for
the Illinois Central, the Santa Fe.
the St. lnuls & San Francisco, the
Missouri, Kansas & Texas; the North
ern Pacific, and the Burlington in
the South aud West.
The scarcity of valuable timbers is ;
felt by no class of consumers more 1
keenly than by the railroads, which
use every year lUUHKUHMJ ties mere
ly to renew those worn out and de
cayed. The price of timbers has risen
in some instances to a figure which
makes their use prohibitive; in other 1
cases the supply is so nearly exhaust- j
eii that the roads have been compel!-1
ed to look about for new timbers.
The bureau of forestry has been !
railed on to assist in solving the dif
ficulty, and has come forward with j
no very practical and simple sugges-.
tion that the railroads, instead ot I
' imtinuing to use expensive, high-1
grade timbers for such a low-grade
purpose as that of railroad ties, shall
use the cheaper woods. For example
o the complaint of the New York
Central that it Bnds it more and more
difficult to secure the long-leaf pine
tie trotn Georgia at the price it can
afford to pay, the bureau suggests
thai the road use the beech, maple,
and birch of the Adirondacks. The
complaint that the timbers rot very
quickly when laid in the ground is
answered by the suggestion that they
should be seasoned and preserved,
just as beech is seasoned and pre
served in France. The Great Eastern
Itallroad of France has succeeded in
making beech ties las! 35 years ,iy
impregnating them with tar ous.
The unseasoned long-leaf pine ties
used by the New York Central last
only five years; and the heech if laid
green, without seasoning or preserv
ing, would In many cases last no
1 more than three years.
The substance of the proposal
which the bureau has made to the
railroads, and which the railroads has
thought so well of as to adopt, is that
experiments be mode to determine
whether cheajier timbers may be
treated with preservatives at a cost
! so low nnd be made to last such a
long time, that It will pay to substi
tute them for the more expensive tim
bers now employed.
The railroads have thought bo well
of these Ideas that they will not only
carry on under the bureau's direction
the necessary experiments in season
ing and preserving, but have engaged
the bureau's help in learning where
cheap timbers for ties may be obtain
ed. In other words, the railroads
have decided that if they can be con
vinced that it will pay to season and
preserve cheap timbers for ties, they
will acquire large areas of timber
lands on which they will grow their
own trees, cut their own ties, and
thus be usaured of a steady supply.
This means that some of the great
railroads of the country are in a fair
way to practice forestry ou a very
large scale, and to employ a groat
The present method of purchasing
railroad ties can not long continue.
It Is becoming more and more hazard
ous to rely on what may be obtained
on the market for the reason that
the market Is becoming mure and
more unwilling to let its timbers go
as railroad ties when as sawed lum
ber they would bring a higher price.
Eastern roads often have to haul
their ties us far us 700 miles.
It is absolutely necessary that sup
plies be grown nearer home aud that
there be a certainty of how much can
be obtained. A railroad that noeds
half a million ties on short notice
must have Uioho ties at any price and
is often comiielled to pay far more
than they are worth, The great ad
vantage to the railroad of growing hk
own ties and practicing forestry would

The wlroless telography typewriter
Is the latest application to industrial
uses of the ethereal wavo system of
communication across spaco. Tho
forcfathor of the Invention was n du
plicating device with wire connection,
whicn was t'xhibited some yean, ago
beloi. various si . entitle bodies.
With 'hai apparatus one dispatch
ing a message wrote it upon a gela
tin pad. with a metallic stylus. A
duplicate pad was attached to the
other extremity of the wire. Upon
this second pad a facsimile of the
written message appeared in electri
cal tracing, the letter inscribed upoi
the sending pad being instantaneous
ly reproduced. The wireless type
writer is an application of this prin
ciple. Instead of using a stylus, the send
ing operator merely writes his mes
sage on an ordinary typewriter hav
ing polnr connections. As the com
munication is tapped off, a sympa
thetic connection through the ether
is formed with another typewriter
which dots down the corresponding
letters. In the case of the model
and first working apparatus, wireless it was in the depot rostaurant of

"plain" of this curious device is nec
essarily costly, but should it prove
hiKcessful iu uperatlon under ordi

fvnense will prevent its adoption and
use in great Industrial establishments.
It i more certain than the telephone,
for It leaves a permanent rocord.
Should It be carried out in imaglim
tion to indefinite possibilities, the re
sult is startling.
The mail service would bo abolish

ments and to manufacturing concern

saved, tne telegraph would be super

ties are unlimited. However, the de
vice is stla in its experimental stage.
