of $800,000. Articles of incorporation
were filed with the state corporation

The mill of ths Company Is located
but two blocks from the heart of the

feet Ion and 86 feet wide, with three

two stories in the center and on the

The operations of the mill will be
v confined eololy to making sulphite for
grease proof anil book print paper.
These are the highest grades of paper
manufacture. White fir, hemlock and

forests, will be used to make this pn

be used daily.
Process Internet Iiik.
The process of making paper, known
to but few persons, Is very interesting.
The timber from which the paper U
made la first cut Into blocks about 20
lirfthes long. Those blocks are shorn of
their bark by specially made machines.
They are then placed in "grinders"
roming out in chips about half the
else of a man's thumb.
These chips are placed in the "di
Crester," a cast iron tank 15 feet In
diameter and 40 feet deep. Steam and
sulphuric acid are then turned In on
these chips, cooking it, and eating out
everything but the finest fibres of the
wood. This cooking process in the "di
gester" usually takes from nine to 12
hours. The result of this process, a
pulpy substance, Is what . Is termed
Pulp is Treated.
The sulphite is then taken to the
"beaters." a circular tank containing
running water. This reduces the sul
phite to a finer degree than when it :
left the digester. Coloring and other
necessary chemicals are then added.
From the beater the pulp drops into a
tank after reaching a certain fineness.
I'owerful pumps then force the waterv
i mass Into "Jordan engines" where cen
trlfugal motion reduces It to a yet fin
It is then conveyed onto screens,
passing over which it is reduced to
thirteen-thousands of an Inch In sise.
Swiftly moving tables convey it from
the screens on to the "apron cloth"
which tends to remove part of the wa
ter and spreads it into the desired
width for the paper machine.

The paper machine, in size 175 long
