into court. The estate amounted to
about $10(1 and he asked that the

SCHOOL ESTIMATES PASSED
BY CITY COUNCIL
Five Hundred Dollars Less Than Last Year — Council
Will Discuss Situation With School Board—Reduction of Salaries Only Hope Tor Further Decrease
in Expenses.
The school board estimates, submitted to the city council hy T.E.L.
Taylor, secretary of the board, were
passed by the council last night. Mr.
TUylor's letter said:
•'Herewith please Hnd the public
school estimates for the current
year. The school board have done all
ia their power to make these estimates us low as possible, and succeeded in lowering last year's estimates on the Selkirk and Geutral
schools hy nearly $2,00<l, the additional expense in connection with
the high school, however takes up
the sum.of 31,500 so that the totul
reduction in the school estimates is
not more thun $500. On careful perusal* of the copy of estimates enclosed
you will see tbat no further reduction can be made in tlie amounts
without' placing the scbool system at
a very serious disadvantage.
"This copy of the estimates is submitted today iu order to comply
with the school act. The school
board would ask the council not to
consider the estimates as final until
the city couucil and the scbool board
can meet together at a meeting to be
arranged  in  the  near future."
The estimates  were as  follows:

lie also stated tbat the Kettle Valley line Wu uld be operated as far as
Merritt. during the present year.
Double-tracking work on the Brit-
'ish Columbia division was being proceeded with.
In regard to appropriations for the
present year and contemplated expansions, he said he bad nothing to
add to the official statement made
recently in Winnipeg. tin that occasion he said it was the' intention
to spend a considerable mini on betterments on operated lineB, notably
in the way of building stockyards at
small centres, with a view to encouraging mixed (arming nnd stock
raising. The construction of new
liucs or double tracking outside of
tbe Rogers I'ass tunnel would not be

iu this direction would be influenced
by crop prospects and general conditions.

into the estimates with thc school
bourd. He thought that the only way
to reduce expenses wus to cut salaries, but the city could not make
Mesh of one and fowl ot another. If
the school teachers' salaries were
cut the salaries of all the civic employes must be cut. Kamloops wa;
doing so, but he was uot in favor of
rutting salaries if it could be avoided. The school board had ulrendj cat
out the usual annual increase in i
salaries.
Aid. Smythe suggested tbat when
the new power plant was installed
tbe schools might he heated by
electricity  and so save $1,400.
Aid.   Bell  said it  would cost  4*4,000 J
to instal  all electric  heating      plant.   !
Aid.  llourne believed  that     electric
heating  would  be expensive and    un- '
satisfactory
Aid.   Mackenrot  had  confidence      in '
the school trustees.  He believed  that
the estimates  were as low as      pos-
sible.
Aid. Bell saw bankruptcy for the
city ahead if the government did
not come to the city's assistance. He
advocated that the council should
meet the school hoard.

The report of the committee recommended that W. J. Keweastle, plumbing inspector be laid off owing to
the financial stringency.
The mayor thought that the public works foreman could do tbe
work at present and that Mr. Rew-
castle could later be reinstated if
necessary.

The Young people's society of St.
John's church celebrated the anniversary of the birthday of Scotland's
nutionul bard, Robbie Burns, in a
fitting manner on Tuesday evening.
The program, which consisted of
selections from his poems and an
address on his life, was most enjoyable and instructive. Mrs. K. Bond
sang very sweetly, "The Star of
Robbie Burns." The choir delighte.l
the audience witb two selections,
"Rantln Rovin Robin" and "Ye
It,inks and lltaes.' The duet "O Wert
ThOU in the t'auld Blast" hy Misses
Annie Mi Lean and Agnes MrGlvca,
wns veiy sweetly sung. The address
bj VI.un Bell, depicted Burns aB
Scotland's favorite poet. He waB one
of the people and wrote his homely
lays for the people. No truer patriot ever lived, t.nd none over in-
spired ins fellow countrymen more
than Burns had the ScottiBb people.
I he address was delivered with feel-
and eloquence and elicited hearty np-
plause, J. L. Hay's reading "To \
Friend," was well rendered and
showed the more serious side of
Burns' nature. "My Love is Like a
Red, Red Rose," was sung in splendid styl" by W. Little. Tbe accompaniments were ably played by Miss
V. Crowe and Miss Parker. The program was thoroughly enjoyed by tho
large audience and much credit ls

Spend Months in Preparation
for Work—They Are Well
Paid
"In view ol thc attempt in certain
quarters to pooh pooh the German
spy menace," says The London Globe
in its issue of December ,29, 1911,
"the publication of 'The Secrets of
the German War Office,' by Armgaard
Karl Graves, is timely. It proves,
not merely that the German spy system is widespread and enormously
costly and utterly unscrupulous, but
thut it is splendidly efficient, a.n.1
that works precisely by those methods to which our government so
foolishly has allowed a great meas-
use of liberty in this country, and
througb the medium of highly trained  agents."
The most interesting part    of Herr
Graves' book is that in which he tells
how  lie was trained.  He did  not receive anything to do till he hud   undergone tive     months'     truining     in
espionage,  and   then it was   a   very
small   and  experimental   task. Speak-
inging    ot     his     schooling, he says'
"Broadly, they could be divided into
I four        classes—topography,,' trigono-
jmetry,  naval construction and draw-
I ing.  My  tutors were all  experts     in
the imperial service. A secret service
agent,  sent   out to  investigate      and
J report on  the     condition,    situation
and armament   of a fort like Verdun
j in France must be uble to make   cor-
jrect estimates of distances,      height,
[angles, conditions of the ground, etc.
He must havc    the     science ol topography at his ringer tips; he must be
able to make quick and accurate calculations,   using      trigonometry,      as
l well as possessing  sMU as a draughtsman.
"The same applies to the subject.
of naval construction. After a month
of tutelage, I was able to tell the
various types of torpedoes, subma-
i rines and mines, etc., in use by the
principal powers. I could even tell
liy i the peculiar whistle it made whet
her the torpedo that was being (Ms-
charged .vas a Whitehead or a Dren-
ran.
"I was also drilled In the construction of every known kind of naval
gun. Dozens of model wur crafts were
shown to me and explained. I saw
the model of every warship in the
World. 1 was schooled uutil I could
tell it ;i glance what was the type of
a battle ship, cruiser or destroyer,
whether it was peculiar to the English, French, Russian or United
States navy.
What They Pay
"In this service the pay varies, but
is always  good; expenses are     never
questioned,  the money    being   no   object."  'in  a  mission    to thc  Riviera,
where he posed as a     South African
mine owner, Herr Craves spent     the
sum of 20,000 in irks in  14 days.   His

Federal Assistance
to Horse Breeding
The progress that has been attained in the past in Canadian horse
breedUng haB been due largely to individual ellort. To thc few who have
done so much for the advancement of
the industry every credit is due.
Through the lack, however, of concerted action and co-operative measures on a large scule amongst the
breeders, the business has not progressed as rapidly ub could be desired.
The wunt of proper organization,
except in the more favoured districts, has prevented the farmers generally from securing and retaining
thc services of good breeding sires,
ln a majority of sections, breeders
wishing to grade up their horses are
forced to use'whatever stallions may,
by chance, stand for service in their
district. Many of these ure faulty in
conformation and luck in quality,
while others, though of better type,
remain, either through Insufficient
patronage or because of failure to
leave colts, but a single season in
each district. The fact also that
there hnB been no systematic adherence to the use of one breed suggests another reason for the luck of
progress in the breeding of Inch
cluss animals.
It must be recognized, further, that
the owner of a valuable horse, after
pitying tor maintenance, insurance,
interest on investment and the expense entailed in the collection of
his fees, bus frequently little lett
from his outlay particularly in district where he has to compete with
grade and scrub stallions standing
for service at a very low fee. As a.
result, really high class stallions can
be maintained only in districts where
thc breeding of horses has been given serious and progressive attencion.
In view of these considerations, thn
minister of agriculture proposes to
enter upon a policy which may serve
to place the horse breeding industry
in Canada in a position comparable
to that which it has attained in
Greut Uritnin nnd other European
countries. It 'is believed that by encouraging thc organization of breeders' clubs and by enabling such clubs
to procure the services of good
breeding stallions under favourable
financial conditions, thc assistance in
this direction can best be provided.
The encouragement of • community
breeding will, naturally, of itseff, be
productive of useful results. The payment to community organizations of
a part of the service fee will, it is
expected, give a permanent stimilus
to the hiring of the beBt stallions
that may he procured and, at the
same time, promote the development
of a comprehensive movement in the
interests of this importune national
industry.
Stated briefly, tlie scheme is as
follows: The farmers of any distiict,
wishine to work for the betterment
of horse breeding, hy encouraging
the use of sound, individually excellent pure bred sires may form a
Breeders' club for the purpose of
luring a pure bred stallion for the
benefit of the members. These Breed
trs' clubs, h> organizing under and
adopting the constitution and bylaws and conforming to the various
rules and regulations governing this
grant mav participate in the federal
assistance given to such ciuhs. This
consists in paying practically 25 per
cent of th" service fees on a guaranteed number of mares.
The Exception
With a view to encourage the breeding of remounts, the portion paid by
t.he   Live  BtOCk   Branch   to  clubs  hir-
t ei,!,     thoroughbred stallions
shall  be   in per Cent on all  mares ex-
thoroughbred mures.

Stories of WWoys  in   War
By T. P. O'Connor in T.P.'s Journal
Alter I had read am interesting and
impressive article from the pen ol
TSir Robert Uadcn-Powell, the creator of the Boy Scout organization, I
turred to a bundle ot paperB, in
which thcre were collected the stories
Ol the boys of the couutiHes at war.
I was surprised to llnd to what a
large extent the splendid movement,
due to Sir Robert's instinct and injections enthusiasm, had spread
■throughout the world. The Boy Scout
of England has brought into being
the Boy Scout everywhere. It will
presently bo seen that the Boy Scout
is found on all the battlefields and
in afl thc armies. Sometimes, indeed
one of these youngsters has already
had a career of adventure that might
well do credit to a veteran.
A Boy of Seven Battles.
Here, for Instance, is the atory of
a French lad—unfortunately, his
name is not given— who is sixteen,
already hus been In seven battles has
been wounded, in hospital, shelled
out of hospital at Arras, und, to
complete his marvelous story, was in
the French passenger sli'ip, the 'Admiral Ganteaume,' when it was torpedoed in the channel by a German
submarine. How thc lad came to be
a soldier is one of the freaks of apparently blind chance at a time when
everything ordinary is uprooted by
the cataclysm of war. This iB his
Btory:
He hud been a fisher-hoy, and then
worked with a gardener. At the beginning ol the war the horse and Cart
he was working were commandeered,
nnd he was, to his great joy, made
a wagon driver of military stores. I
At Vauvreaucours tbe horse was
wounded when be was conveying
Titles to the front He then took, or
Stole, a rille and cartridges, and followed a rctriment and demanded to
be a soldier. "1 am a soldier' I am
a soldier! Heboid my rille and cartridges! Give mc a kepi!" he cried i
He was made a soldier—bayonot,
kepi, and all—In the 12th Regiment
of Inf'intry. One of Ins i si ,,,K,i:-
tures was when his company slep.
in a barn with the straw still rftilva
from the departing Germans, I la \>it,t
outside in the night and i ,iv. en
automobile approaching which he believed to be Qerman. He ran to the
farmhouse where the commandant
was, woke him up, got cursed for
bis pains; but when they found that
it was a real German advance the
bugles were sounded aud the troops
turned out, and the Germans were]
forced to retire, He was wounded at
Lille. There was a wounded German
near him who could speak French;
but he did not wish to speak to him. j
And now the gallant lad is back
again   with  the army.
A French Boy in British Uniform.
Another French hoy attracted my"
attention the moment I saw nim
mentioned. It is a figure none the
less striking because it has a little
of the grotesipie super-seriousness
that is 80 characteristic of the iioy
mind. An English correspondent 'resents the young hero to me, as he
arrives at a railway station where
there is a Red Cross train. Thc correspondent finds doctors, nurses, ambulance men, and a French priest.
•But,' he adds, the busiest person
in the station was n khaki-clnl
youngster, perhaps fourteen years of
age, who attracted my attention by
B breathless sprint along the platform with a great heap of cabbages
and onio-is in his safe, embracing
arms.' 'The ambulance men gave
Wim a subdued and affectionate cheer
as ho raced along towards the kit- j
chen <|iinrtors.' No wonder; for this :
is tho  hoy's  history:
'Tich' of the Rod Cross.
He  was  a  chnrming     little  (ellow, ]
and  when,  walking  as  briskly  as   his
legs could carry him, he next came
my way, I spoke to him. To my surprise I found he s^oke no English,
but he insisted—in fluent French—
that he was British born und bred.
He had been working as an ambulance man, he proudly told me, since
the beginning of the wnr. and was
going over to England when it was
over.
The little fellow bo our Red Cross
men informed me, wus known to
them ns 'Tich.' On formal occasions
he rejoices in the name, recently assumed, of Thomas Skinner. He attached himself to the ambulance service as soon as our men crossed the
channel. He liked the khaki uniform,
admired the men who wore it, ami
simply refused to be left behind when
a Bed Cross train steamed out of
the station ol his native town one
A.ugnst afternoon. He was a orphan
boy, his guardian had gone oil to
the wur, and the old lady who cared
(or him could no longer afford to
keep  him.
It wus against all regulations, but
Thomas Skinner proved himself so
very useful—he was a Boy Scout of
light and leading in his locality—
that he was soon put into the uniform which had so appealed to his
teceptive martial mind. He is the
only French boy or .nun, one may
well believe, in Uritish uniform; and
so no doubt his generous countrymen will forgive him for his little
untruth when be said '.Io suis Anglais;  vive l'Angleterre!"
Well, if France will permit us, we
must adopt  that boy.
A   'Bag'   of  Spies.
Belgium's unconquerable soul has
inspired her boys as well as her men
und her women. There is story after
story of deeds of heroism by Belgian
boys. Here is the first. The hero is
George Jeysen; he i6 eighteen, and lie
belongs to Liege:
Young Jeysen by brilliant work
has already a bag of eleven spies all
of whom huve been shot. He has
killed a Uhlau aud captured another
at Maliues, though suffering from a
broken arm. Near Malines two fellow Boy Scouts of sixteen uud seventeen wore executed. l.eyson declares
their only arm was a long Knife. On
Sunda\ morning Lcysen, who is the
I ero of the hour in Antwerp. lofc
with important official despatches tor
Brussels. He has already twice pierced  Cerm.in linos.
Made a Sergeant for Gallantry
The next Belgian boy hero is
named Van dor Bern; he is seventeen
years old, and already he is a sergeant.  And no wonder!
Dur'ng the night ol August ."ith and
eth Van der Bern, who was then a
corporal, was in command of twenty
men who formed a reconnoitring
patrol outside Liege. They hud proceeded for 25 minutes when they unexpectedly rau into a group of Uhlans Borne fifty strong. Dor Bern'.-
eompaiiions begun to flee, but the
boy, standing alone, shunted 'A moi'*
and then fearlessly ran forward t.,
meet the German bayonets. Seeing
the splendid bravery of their lea ler
the other Belgians rallied round Der
Bern, and together thc little party
hurled themselves .-.iraitist overwhelming odds.
It was all ovei in a few minutes.
At the ond of that period Der Bern
and two others alone faced the Germans. In another *!<' seconds Der
Bern's companions had fallen mortally wounded. Hickitu: up tho bitter,
this boy, with superhuman effort,
staggered hark into safety, but ii"t
before two German bullets bad found
their mark.

ior officer. Then he tumbled in a dead
faint.
Next morning, in front of all     the
soldiers, General     Bcrtrand   . related
his exploits, and announced that Der
i Bern hud been made a sergeant.
The Boy who Killed a General.
And we cannot forget the daring
Belgian boy who is supposed to have
killed General Von Buelow, at the
; battle of Heelen, and to have thus
deprived the German forceB of oue
of their crack geuerals.
At this battle a bid of eighteen,
standing alone in a mass of dead
bodies, saw, about nine hundred yards
distant, an officer studying a map.
The youngster crawled quietly
amongst the corpses of his comrades
until he was within 190 yards of the
officer. Then he took careful aim and
fired. The officer fell dead.
Rushing up to tho body, thc Belgian discovered to his surprise that
it was that of General Von Buelow.
Taking of the ganeral's boots and
donning his uniform, he managed to
pass through tbc German lines. As
he approached the Ht'.gian army he
discarded the German helmet and put
on his own cap, in fear that he might
be shot.
Subsequent examination of Von
Buelow's garments led to German
notes to the value of 1'15,0<K) francs
(£6,-109) being found in the vest
pocket; and this money King Albert
has turned over to the Red Cross
organization.
In the packet was a secret pocket
containing memoranda full of interesting details about the battlefield
and the future intentions of the Germans.
On hoaring of thc lad's brave deed.
King Albert, after presenting him
w'ith the dead general's horse and
pocket-book, gave him on the spot
tbe Order of the Knight of Leopold.
Belgium, you see, is all right.
RuBsin's V.C. for a Boy.
Hero is ^he story of how Nicholas
Orloff, a boy of sixteen, won the
Cross of St. George—the highest
Russian military decoration—Russia's
V.C, in fact:
Young Orloff belonged to the fourth
form of the Zhitomir public school.
At the beginning of the war he joined the army us a volunteer.
In an uction near Lvoff his company was surprised on both sides by
large bodies of Austrians. The bullets rained thickly on a solitary
trench. No sooner was a hat seen
than it was perforated by bullets.
The Russiuns returned tbe fire, but
orily feebly as compared with the
Austrians' pertect  storm of lead.
The Russians' ammunition was
soon exhausted, und they wore faced
with the option of surrendering or
dying one by one under the merciless
tire.
At last the non-commissioned officer commanding the Russian company culled* for a volunteer to make
an attempt to break through the
Austrian lines to ask for reinforcements.
The Austriuns were tiring from a
distance ot 3IM> paces only, but
Orloff, who appeared iu response to
the non-commissioned officer's call,
was undaunted. Whan be appeared
above the trench they concentrated
all  their fire upon him.
He was wounded; but he crawled
forward until ho reached the Russian
positions. Strong reinforcements were
immediately despatched to the spot
and in an hour or so the whole vul-
b y  was clenred  of  AustrituiR.
At  the Head of a Charge.
Finally, as Sir Robert Baden-Powell
has pointed out, when a British, boy
does got to thc firing line, ho is just
jas wonderful ns thoso other boys    of
ut bor countries.
Corporal isherwood, of the D Company ol the 2nd Battalion ol the
Manchester Regiment,  who, with    a
hatch   "I   Wounded.      arrived   recently
,,i Cardiff, told this story ol s boy
ol eighteen;
It   was on  the 20111  ol  October (said
the Corporal).  The Germans were all
[around us. and our trenches had been
enfilade.1    by    tbeir    Sit        First   our
lieutenant   was  W0Und<sd  and  then til,

what to do, Private Preston, a 1 id

did so, uni charged the advancing

badly, but he mads, up his mind that
he woitfld conquer It, and this is
what he did. He made it a prncttce
to go out of the trench and expose
himself to German fire for a bit
every day. The poor boy trembled
like a leaf but his soul was bigger
than the weak little body holding it,
and he went through that terrible

So much for the English boy; now

Coldstream Guards,  tells this story:
At Soissons our attention was attracted hy al young lad of the Con-
nallght Rangers. He waB   fighting
single-handed against .seven Germane.

them caught him, and he dropped.
We fought our way over, and finish
ed the other two, nnd just managed
to catch the poor lad before his last
breath  went.
'You saw it,' he said, and we said
we had. 'You think I did my beat,
and they won't blame me because
seven was two to many for me? I'm
only a boy, and they were such big
chaps.' We told him if any man
said or hinted he hadn't done his
best, and more, there wasn't one of
us wouldn't kill him.
He smiled ever so sweetly, and
then he died.
'We drew our coat sleeves across
our eyes to stop or hide the blinding tears that came in spite of us,'
writes the corporal at the end of the
story.

Ml  to 14} cents     a     pound.  Heavy ;
sales of electrolytic at 14 cents   and j
better are reported. The export move- |
ment seems to be on the increase.  It !
is stated that  Japan     has    recently j

I'e     to     be     used     in     the    manu-
facture of ammunition    for  Jnpanese

Investigation develops the fact that
a very lurge amount of copper is being  consumed    nnd  destroyed  by  the
European war. It seems that    every !
shell fired is encircled by a band     of
ropper,  the average weight of    which
must lie nearly a pound,   which conforms to the rifling of the gun,    im- '
parting to the shell  the spin  requir-
ed for accurucy.     Reports   from tho :
wur zone    state     that     hundreds of ,
thousands of these shells are sent on '
their death dealing missions     in     a
day. Of course cartridges shells    generally arc made of  brass, which      is
an     alloy of copper and zinc.     Thc '

land and Germany  shoot     steel  jac- '
kcted builots;  hut  thc jacket   of   the
French  bullet      is     copper,  it  being
claimed that tho medienl experts     of
France     ascertained     by   experiment
that the copper jackeeted bullet is less
likely to Cause blood poisoning   than
one encased In   steel.    The German
artillery used  sharpnel  and other ex
plosive shells almost  exclusively,  and
tlie  fact  that  those     must  be  r:rti>-il
by bands of ropper probably accounts

Aa is always the case, where alterations are to be made the council is
beset by advice from various individuals, and as a rule this advice comes
from those who, owing to lack of
knowledge or the possession of the
little knowledge which is a dangerous thing ure the least qualified to
offer any  suggestions whntever.

TOMORROW'S SERVICES
At the refiquest of the Dominion
parks brunch the E. B. Eddy company has recently put into effect a
very excellent precautionary measure, against forest lires. ThiB company is now printing in striking
ii.'.ors and attractive design on their
match boxes an effective tire notice,
warning the public not to throw
away burning matches especially in
thc woods. It is n well known fact
thut many forest lires ure due to
Carelessness  in   handling  mutches.
It is recognized that the. beat way
to get people to realize the danger
with matches uJid tire is to have the
necessity of care constantly impressed upon them. It Un thought that if
a person sees a lire warning notice
every time he times a match from
a-box, the exercise ol care with tire
will gradually become a habit with,
bim.
I'p to the present time, however,
the mutch itself bus also been u
fault. If an ordinary match is light
ed and allowed to burn from) one end
to the other,      the flame then extin
guished, it will be observed tbat the
burned portion remains a live coal
for almost a minute after thc llanie
is out. The E. B. Eddy company are
undertaking to correct this fault by
impregnating their matches so that
when the flame is out the match is
dead. Some of their matches mvt
now treated in this way and it is
the intention to have all their matches impregnated as Boon as< mar
tninery can bc installed for the purpose.
Other industrial companies arc ul-
60 co-operating with the Dominion
parks branch in the campaign
against destructive fires. Last spring
the Canadian l'nc*'ic n-, nth t lail
ways placed fire warning notices in
their smoking cars and nst. 1 11 inserted them in their menu cards. Arrangements are also being made
with the manager in chiel ol the
Canadian Pacific railway hotels to
have, very neat, and attractive. fire
memoranda placed In the guests

company.

London Times: We cherish no an-

which tbey have suffered themselves
to be blinded and misled; but, as the
wonderful Christmas scenes in the
trenches showed. there is no malice
on our Side, and none In many ol

righteous anger at the way in which
this war was forced upon ub and upon our al'liea, and at the savage

The choice by the Earl of Aberdeen,
the retiring Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, of the new title of 'MurqulB of
Aberdeen and Tara,' is evoking
strong criticism from     the     British
| Press und pulilic and even the   poets,
I William Aatson bclug particularly
unkind in suggesting the irreverent
alternative    of  'Aberdeen und  Siniii.'
I The addition of Tura to thc Mur-
quis's   title    is    considered by the
' newspapers aB something Ol a pro
fanatlon likely to give ollence to
lriflumi. The Hill of Turn is situated
in County Meuth. Here, prior to 5C0,
is said to huve stood tbe ball of tbe
kings of Ireland. It. has been famous
for mass meetings (rom ancient

The Mondell resolution proposing
an umendment to the Federal Constitution granting to women the
right to vote in ull the Btutes has
been defeated in thc United States
House of Representatives. Of the 37S
members present 20-1 voted against
the resulution and 1?4 for it. Women
Suffrage, therefore, polled just just
sixteen votes less than a majority of
those present and 11 leBs than a
majority of the full membership o!
the lower branch of Congress. The
resolution lacked 78 votes of the total necessary for its adoption, two-
thirds ol thc house being required
on a constitutional amendment. Woman suflrage did not make ns good u
showing in the house as the prohibition amendment, which wns defeated
I in that body a month or so ago by
sixty-one votes.

Kootenay Mills Now
Exporting Lumber
During the past coup'le o( weeks
there has beeu a noticeable movement of lumber (rom the stocks of
Beverul mills of the Kootenay and
Boundary and it is stated thut during this period in the neighborhood
of 30 or 3i"> cars of lumber have been
shipped to points in the central
states,  principally  to  Chicago.
The lumber which is being exported
is, for the most part, yellow pine
and the (act o( this movement is regarded', us significant to the lumber
industry o( the district since it lis
confidently felt in circles which are
closely in touch with lumbering conditions that it is only the forerunner of generally increased activity
during this year in thc lumber industry.
Aside  from   the  manufactured  lumber which is    being     shipped
quantities  ol  poles  from  the
pole  yards of  tbe  district  nre
heing shipped  to the states.
