KNOTS ARE STRONG
The man with the rifle turned like
a wildcat toward the rotten bulk of
the Douglas flr windfall. Joe Boone
read murder in the maniacal eyes
and in the grip of clawlike hands on
rifle stock and barrel. Now he knew
that he must reveal himself and take
the one fighting chance that he had
for his life.
His right hand tightened on a knot,
a solid remnant of a big bough that
had grown from the windfall when
AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
it was a standing tree. The hard,
tought knot was loose in the rotten
debris of the once giant tree trunk.
Joe tensed, then he drove all the
speed and force of his body into an
upward thrust of his left arm and in
a swing and Ohrow of the knot with
his right arm and hand.
Theie was a little luck for Joe
Boone. In that instant the man with
the gun was looking a trifle to Joe’s
right for the sound that had caught
his attention. He had to look again
and turn toward the new sound. He
glimpsed the jagged whirl of the
knot toward him. He dodged — too
late. The knot struck him between
the eyes a tick of time before he
squeezed the trigger. The rifle was
falling as is spat hot lead. And its
owner fell as a stone falls.
“Knots are tough,” said Joe Boone
rising 1 n a cold sweat of relief.
“Knots are strong.”
And truer words weie never spoken
by any man.
Back in 1861 Ezra Hallock and Lu­
ther Tuthill sold a considerable num­
ber of knots. They had been running
an “upright and ciicular” sawmill in
Ellendale, Ore., for seven years and
operating the first Oregon flr planer.
Like most pioneer mills, the Ellen­
dale outfit could not handle the large
old growth. It took the email t °es.
Little of the cut was left over. The
products of the sawmill and planer
were sold on a run of the mill basis.
Some of it was full of strong, dura­
ble knots.
But all was good service lumber.
The proof stands today in the O”fc-
gon Brunk home, a home that has
been lived in at Salem since 1861. I
