of Ilcnd. The railroad mirvcy
crosses thin canal obliquely, which,
from on cnttinccrlitK standpoint, is
objectionable, lly building about
1000 feet of new canal, on a dif

above the normal surface of the
ground. The engineers have cal
culated on an ex cu vat Ion of about
five feet for the street, thus placing
the railroad tracks 14 feet above
the street grade. It is also
planned to leave one opening 17
feet wide for teams in the middle
of the street and two others, each
1 1 feet wide, for sidewalk. The
railway tracks will be carried over
these on trestles. The remainder
of the hpace will be filled with rock.

On Monday 32 men, employed
by W R. Sellers In the interest of
the Shcvlin Lumber Co , were sent
out from Rend to fight a fire that
was burning in the timber some
seven miles southwest' of Spring
River in 19-9, ami adjacent sec
tions. While the fire was doing
practically no damage as iu the
open pine titnlxr no trees arr de
stroyed and but a few, with pitchy
base, arc felled by the ground fire
it was thought lst to put it out,
to avoid its gelling headway in the
black pine, where the thicket
growth gives an -.opportunity for
fire not found iu the yellow pine.
M. J Hurd and the forest rang
ers under him, stationed near Van

fire for some da) J.
Ry many these small fires are re
garded as a blessing to the timber,
as they do practically no damage,

floors, remove all danger of larger
