Young Tennyson made a sensa

The note said: "George I was tho
cause of father's death. Don't tell

Tli ore has boon n sorlos of experi

preservation. Slnco tho first mothodu
for applying chomlcnl prosorvatlvo3
to woods woro adopted In tho United
States thoro has boon much discus
slon regarding tho valmo of steaming
tho wood and drawing a vacuum bo
foro the application of tho prosorvn
tlvo. Among thoBO who hnvo hold
steaming and vacuum woro ossontlnl
In increasing tho nbsorptlvo quali
ties of tho wood opinions have dlffor
od widely ns to tho length of time
the steaming nnd vacuum should be
applied. Many have claimod that
steaming tlmbor boforo applying the
preservative addod groatly to Ks
moisture content nnd thus provontod
tho preservative from penetrating the
wood. Othors havo claimed that
stoamlng was nocossary, not only
for tho purpose of storlllzlng th
tlmbor, but for to oxpand tho pores,
nnd, In a mannor which has novor
been satisfactorily oxplalnod, In
crease tho absorptive qunlltles of tho
i wood. Tho prosent Borles of experi
ments, which aro conducted, by tho
United Statos forost sorvlco, nro ox
peoted to yield results which will bo
of much practical vaUie 'in determin
ing the proper solution to those prob
lems. The purpose of those experiments
Is to ascertain whether or not, and
how much, tho molsturo content of
the wood Is increasod by tho stoam
lng process, and to what extont this
Is diminished by tho vaouum, and to
determine tho effect of these factors
upon tho absorptive qualities of dif
ferent kinds of wood when treated
with both oil and a water solution.
Results will be obtained for steam
ing under different proasures when
applied for different periods of time.
Tho length and dogree of the vacuum
will also bo varied.
1 When completed a report of tho
work will bo publlshod and placed at
the disposal of all Industries which
nro practicing or are receiving the
benefits of wood preservation through
any of tho methods now In use.
