3IAKIXG BERRY BOXES.
INTERESTING DETAILS OF A CALI
FORNIA COAST INDUSTRY.
Cnttlnfr m Big Jjng Into Single b having.
The Cireat Illade at It 'Work Forming
the Angles of the llox Making the 1 lot
too The I-t Step.
The thin aheeU of wood which form the
Bide anl bottom of a berry box are nothing
more nor J exit than email piece cut from a
great pine, fir or whitewooil having, and
bent ani fastened together in tbo shapo of a
box. These Mhavingu, of course, are not like
thoe which fall in graceful cur In from the
carpenter' piano, but are great long bheota,
in each of which in almost the entiro wood of
a log, and from a single shaving U fre
quently inado from 2,WW to 5,000 lerry boxes.
The loi, which are brought down from
the northern const, are unloaded in the waters
rf tbo bay and tloated into the boom clove to
the bhore, where the factory is located. From
there they ure hauled up on a tramway run
ning down into the water, no that the logs
km le floated Ufwn the trar. When brought
fi, the log9 ore cut by a drag saw into uni
form lengths us desired. These sections of
1 he lo ure then placed in a large steam box,
of which there ure several convenient to the
machinery, and left for twelve hours, sub
jifted to the effects of the exhaust steam
from the engine. This bofteud the wood so
that it cun lo cut into tho thin sheets desired
without checking or splitting into fragment.
A section of a great lo;j, three feet in dia
meter, was rolled out Iroui the steum Ikx by
two men, uud. after tho center huil been
marked nt both ends, wus hoisted by a small
derrick end swung over u machine, the prin
cipal feature of which was a long level
edged knife, firmly set iu a strong iron frame,
in very rnnch the same munner as tho blade
cf .a cprpenter's plane is Ret. Indeed, the
rutting Krtion of this machine is a great
monster shaving plane, tvith the edje of tho
bluilo Used itpxvarils. The log was next low
t red by the derrick to its proper position,
t ho ojx iutor of the machine pulled a lever,
mid two frrat clamps, with strong, fclmrp
pointel jaws two inches long, advanced and
pushed their iron teeth into the marked cen
ters nt each cud of the log. Tho great
wCcden cylinder was now held firmly in
front of t he blii'lo of the inimeiise shaving
f ilano, ruul when the operator pulled another
lever, the- log coiumeiiced to revolve towards
"tho cutting ilge, exactly like tho strip of
wood i:i a turner's buhc revolves towards the
chis-l. Another pull by tho operator, and
the frame holding the great blndo began to
movo up to tho revolving log. When the
knife came in contact with the steaming
wood, tho outer oles were peeled oft in thiu
strips without a sound of cutting, and the
Jjroad sheets rolled out under tho blade as
and noiselessly as would a slice of
4-hoeso under a sharp knife.
After tho water soaked, outer portions of
llic lojr hud been trimmed off in this man
er, the operator adjusted, on tho side of the
log opposito to tho cutting knife, n number
tf small chisel like instruments at the end of
each of wLlcii was a small, sharp cutting
clgo pressing against the log. These little
cutters are placed at vnrious distances, care
f 1III7 measured by the operator, and evidently
formed an important feature of the opera
tion. When tho log again began its revolu
tions against tho blade of tho great shaving
machine, there camo out from under the
knifo a long, wide, thin strip of wood, which
tho men pulled out uud rolled and folded up
like wall paper.
An examination of this great white, steam
ing shaving showed that its entire length wa
marked by parallel lines cut partially through
tho wood, mado by tbo little cutters at the
Lack of the log. The purpose of these lines
as a mystery until tho operator carelessly
broke ofl an end of the great shaving, mak
ing a strip two or three inches wide, and
cmickly bent it into the form of a berry box
complete, excepting the bottom. The points
of bending wero the parallel lines cnt in tho
vrood, which made the operation of shaping
tho box nothing but a simple mechanical
The wood bent readily at the partial cuts
nnd formed the angles of tho box. Making
tho bottom, of course, consisted in exactly
1 jo ame operation, except that the strip used
for this portion was not so long, having only
. tworn's and three segments. The middle
segment formed, of course, tho bottom of the
tox, and the two at the end extended upward
inside the frame formed by the longer strip.
All but the small core of the log is turned
ft into this long shaving, one-twentieth of
an inch in thickness and nearly 1,000 feet
long, which is folded and broken into con
venient lengths for handling as fast as it
Cimes from tho knife.
The machinery which thus in a few min
utes converts a rough log into a long paper
like sheet of wood is called a rotary veneer
machine, and in the factory are several of
them cf various sizes, tho largest of them
being adapted to the shaving of logs ten feet
e ight inches in Icr.gt'u. This, by the way. is
tho largest rotary veneer machine in opera
tion in the United States. The thin sheets of
vood, as fast ns they are taken from the ma
chine, aro placed upon a long table near nt
hand, and y ulied under a knife operated by
steam power, which cuts the wood into nar
row strips, lengthwise, and of tho proper
width for the sides and bottom of a berry
box. The knife which cuts tho long shavings
crosswise of course cuts lengthwise of tho
grain. The narrow striis, as fast as they are
cut, aro t&ken awaj by hoys and carried on
an elevator to the second floor of the build
ing, where n number of boys and girls rap
idly bind them into lox form. Tho last 6tep
in the manufacture, which is done by girls,
is tho fastening of tho button uud sido strips
together. This is dor.u by a peculiar looking
machine called a stapler, but which might
very properly be nlie.l a wire sewing ma
chine. San Diego (Cal.) Union.
Explorer Stanley' Ilitreruo Taciturnity.
Evc-rv white man who hx'i served under
tho explorer Stanley :-peaks of hi3 remark
able taciturnity. In the years ho was found
ing tho Congo state stations Lo kept all his
plans to himself, aud his assistants seldom got
an inkling of them until they were ordered
to carry them out. Lieut. C'cquKhat gives a
curious instance of this characteristic Quite
contrary to his usual custom Stanley one day
offered Coquilhat bis choice in the director-
" ship of ono of two proposed stations that
wero to te started at Lulanga and Ba-Ngala.
;"He told the lieutenant that Lulauga was tho
center of a large and friendly populace,
while the Ea-Ngala, though the most power
ful tribe on the river, wero audacious and ir
ritable, nnd his lifa would bo in danger
among them unless be acted with great dis
cretion. Coquilhat told his leader to put tlra
where he could be most useful. Stanley said
nothing more,' but Coquilhat soon after re
ceived marching orders. Up the river they
started on their little steamer, and thoagb
. Coquilhat wondered greatly what station he
was to take in charge, Stanley did not drop
t2w slightest hint It was not until after sev
ral days' traveling tte steamer passed La
