Mr. Baker ol Benlou. wjieu his
name "was reached, rose to ins feet
and said: "Mr. President, I cast my
first vote in this senatorial contest
for Gov. James H. Berry, and I have I
continned to do so tip to tne present
time. I know him, and 1 like him.
He is a good man, and well qualified
to fill the effice: :m honored citizen, a
Iirave soldier and an able statesman,
he is high, in the esteem of the public.
I am a rourh man myself a man of
the mountains- -and I am one of those
men who stick by their friends: I
stick by my friends when they de
serve it- -when they are able and well
qualified until they fall aud even
then I'll not desert them; I am like
Collins' 'sheep' when they fall I fall
with them. 1 hated to see Gov. Ber
ry withdraw from the field, but when

and took the ihiug under considera
tion and thought on it I thought
long and carefully over it, and I slept
with it. Laughter. I saw I must
cast my vote for some one else, and I
must make a choice of the other can
didates. I'll tell you how I did it.. I
looked over the field. Ihavcmetthe
other two, and I studied them. I met
the Hon. Poindexler Dunn and I saw
in him many good points. L saw a
fine head on him ( I greatly admire a
fiue head) and I saw in him a great
coming man. But I tell yon what did
the work for me. 1 met Mrs. clones
- the wife of the Hon. James K.. Tones
and that settled it. Imetherand
I went and called on her- yes, I did.

but she sat at the piano and 1 asked
her to plav a little tune on it for me.
f Laughter.) I asked her that Yery
thing asked her if she could play
'My Ola Cabin Home. She said she
wonld if I would sing a vetse of it,
and I said I'd try. (Cries' 'Sing it
now; lot's hear it'J You wait. I
said I would, and she touched up the
piano, hit the very keynote or the
piece -the tune I know and love liest
on earth. It rang aud echoed about
the room. The place was full of
women, and pretty women, too. Ap
plause. And among them 1 saw Mrs.
Koaue, the daughter of old Gov.
Roane, the lady of whom Mr. McMil
lan spoke so beautifully a while ago.
They crowed aronnd, and right there
stood aud snng the verse. Cries,
Sing -sing give us the verse.'J All
right, gentlemen, to accomodate you
I'll sing it," and, clearing his throat,
the gentleman from Benton struck up
a bear-tone solo and sang:
We'll hunt no more the grizzly
In tbe nook;
We'll leave the cauou nil
We'll drink no more of the
Clear crystal brook;
So, my log cabin home, good by.
As the "good by" floated up among
the cobwebs in the dome of the hall,
the densely-packed throng burst into
cheers and" shouts, a tornado of ap
plause shaking the old house, while
bursts of laughter broke out like thnn
derbolis, and handclappings sounded
like hail among the confusion. At
length the orator succeeded in get
ting silence again, after bowing and
gesticulating several minutes, he said:
"Hold onwait antl hear the chorus,'
and then he sang:
We'll mind no more, but play.
I never shall forget
That log cabin home
That log cabin home far away.
Again the- storm broke forth, aud it
was several minutes before he could
proceed. "When a lull came he con cen
tinued: "Well, those ladies crowded
around me, and when Mrs. Jones
stopped playing I seized her hand
and said: 'Madam, I'm in love with
vou.' Shouts. I Yes, I told her I had
fallen in love with her, and she said
she wished I'd fall in love with her
husband as well. She treated me
nice they all did, too. Now I am a
rough old .man, but ladies have great
attractions for the old mountain
boomers. I know I do, cheers and
I never forgot that visit They
looked so sweet and nice that I want
ed to hug them all. When I met Mr.
Jones I looked at him closely and I
saw in him a man I could well sup
port. Ho had a big head, too a
head like a washtub, eyes set way
buck in and deep thinking look in
them, and so with all this to think of,
after looking well about me, after
considering the matter well, after
sleeping with it, I have concluded to
vote for the Hon. James K. Jones."

The two following articles are lak
!en from r.ie AonitreMern J.'tmo.
', man. The 5rat is from r. correspond
ent a; Galen. Pa., and under the head
of "A log table for Washin:!on Iprri
tnrv," the writer aavs:
"In April. 1831, Peter L. Trout, of
Ontonagon. Michigan, made iuuuiry.
through the Lumberman concerning'
Doyle's log rule. I had not seen
Doyle's log tables at that time, but
knew that he had constructed a table
that gave better satisfaction than'
Scribner's, and I knew that his effort
in that line had been a little later than i

ntory, purchased timber laud, alter i
having examined the timber, and on
his return home wanted me to make ,
estimates of the board measure in(
certain trees according to Doyle's
rule, of which he furnished me a copy.
But the size of the timber exceeded
the limits of the log table so much
that they were not able to apply it
In extending the table I discovered
that the computation for 16-foot logs
was made by squaring a number
which was four less than the diameter
of the log in inches. For instance, a
log is 18 inches in diameter; deduct 1
from the diameter in inches leaves 14,
which being multiplied by itself pro
duces 19G the same rule holding
throughout the tables. Tims, for an
8-iuch log we have 16 feet board meas
ure as tho quantity due to that dia
meter, which is absurd; the actual
quantity being more than twice that
Ordiuary sized logs or average logs
may do well enough, but when you
come to large logs the scale runs the
other way. The reason is obvious.
He constantly takes four f nun the dia
meter in inches, which in an 8-iuch
log is jnst one-half, but in a C9-inch
log is only four iuches less than 60,
or 56. Multiplying .16 by itself gives
3,136 as the quantity of a 60-inch log
when 2,4(r.i is all there caii be in it by
making it into boards of merchantable
I have made no secret of mv theory
of scaling logs. One inch should
first be deducted from the diameter
for the slab, which is a constant qunu
titv. The sonare of the remainder
will be the nroportion-of variation for
the different sizes, which is suscepti
ble of rigid mathematical demonstra
tion, and will also agree with the us
ual practice of sawing. Find what
any one sized log will make by actual
ly sawing it up in the usual way, nnd
by this rule the quantity contained in
aiiy other sized log, of auy length,
may be readily computed.
In ,view of the fact that any scale
to be of use in the. uew timber forests
of Washington must lie extended ton
diameter of 10 or 12 feet, I have un
dertaken to compute a log table of
lengths from 8 to 40 feet, and for dia
meter from 8 iuches to 144 inches,
which work is now well advanced. 1
intend to have my tables printed, not
as a money speculation, for I expect
the speculation will be a negative
ouantitv. 1 am past my days of use
fulness, but the preparation of the
work has been, and will be a pastime
or occupation, while it lasts.
The second article combines a ques
tion by a party at Myers, Ky., and an
answer by the editor of the Lumber'
man and reads as follews:
'We are somewhat troubled hero at
our mill on Licking river in the mat
ter of landing timber. The Licking
river is what the state of Kentucky
(and the United States government,
perhaps,; call a navigable stream..
Our friends here that own land ad
joining the river demand of us pay
for tieiug our logs to the limber oil
the river, bank. The trees to which
wc tie are not on the top of the bank
of the river, but several feet below
the point that would be called high
water mark. Now have tho log men
a right to tie on the bat s of a navi
gable stream, and let their timber lie
lie there any length of time they
choose, or are they compelled to keep
the timber always afloat? Or, have
they a right to tie anywhere without
the consent of the owners 01 the laud
adjoining the stream? M.''
Notwithstanding the fact that the
stream may be navigable, tno property
owners along the bank control the
laud to low-water mark. A navigator
may anchor in the stream, provided
he does not obstruct navigation, but
if he use for his own purpose the
property of others in tho manner de
scribed by your correspondent, with
out ineir consent, ne is name ior
damage. This is the law in the mnt-
ter; but in u great many cases where
bank owners are willing to render
slight assistance to the industries of
their towns, the law is not enforced.J
