it is certainly going to do.
The building construction industry
absorbed approximately 22,000,000,-
000 feet o f lumber last year, or
nearly 60 per cent o f our produc­
tion o f some 37,000,000,000 feet.
This was from the output o f 30,000
sawmills, (willi èoo.uuo men working
and $10,000,000,000 capital) which
paid freight to railroads amounting
to nearly $300,000,000.

DANGER
Every winter numerous deaths are
caused by carbon monoxide.
The
Information Bureau f Kansas Pub­
lic Service Companies has prepared
the following set o f "danger sig­
nals” :
“ When unaccountable headaches
come on, especially with two or more
persons involved, you have a reason
to suspect carbon monoxide poison­
ing o f there are any gas stoves, gas
grates, or doubtful-acting stoves or
furnaces about.
“ If matches will not burn perfect­
ly in the general air o f the rooms, or
if there is a sense o f drowsiness in
rather confined quarters, you have
reason to suspect carbon monoxide.
"Suspect monoxide gas if, on aris­
ing from a chair or attempting act­
ive work, weakness of the knees oc­
curs and it requires special effort to
get one’s self to the job.
“ Suspect the cook stove, whether
it is o f gas or other type, when these
symptoms are aggravated during the
preparation o f a meal.
“ Flueless water heaters, whether
in bathroom, kitchen, or basement,
should be constant objects o f suspi­
cion, regardless of their type. All
j o f them should have outside flues.”

"O I L F E D " N ATION
Two pretentious oil reports re­
cently appeared. One was by a com­
mittee of federal and private geolo­
gists who fix the amount of our
available petroleum at 9,500,000.-
000 barrels, and the duration o f the
flow at 20 years. Another report
by the American Petroleum Institute
claims 5,300,000,000 barrels recov­
erable by present methods, and 26.-
000,000,000 barrels that may be re­
covered by processes yet to come.
The production in 1924, was 713,-
940,000 barrels.
But surveys of the oil shale fields
indicate that Colorado alone has 80,-
000,000,000 barrels of recoverable
shale oil; Kentucky has 50,000,000,-
000; and Oregon, California, Utah,
Wyoming, Nevada and Ohio have
vast possibilities. It will take a lot
of flivvering to exhaust these fields.
The point for all Americans to re­
member is, that this nation produces
and consumes the bulk of all petrol­
eum products, and it is essential that
we maintain our leadership in this
field of industry.
